Gay Agenda Being Pushed into Public Schools

GLSEN

I know you’ve heard of library books in the public schools that promote the homosexual lifestyle for kids as young as kindergarten, but are you aware of the agenda to force more homosexual and perverse lifestyles on your kids?

Have you ever heard of a group called GLSEN? It stands for ‘Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.’ However, don’t let the word ‘straight’ fool you, they are anything but straight. They are the largest LGBT activist organization in America that is working to push their agenda into the public schools and government.

According to the group’s website:

“Improving Education, Creating a Better World”

“In 1990, a small, but dedicated group of teachers in Massachusetts came together to improve an education system that frequently allowed its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students to be bullied, discriminated against and/or fall through the cracks.

“Almost 25 years later, that small group has grown into the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe schools for all students. Today, we’re known as GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.

Gaystopo

GAYSTOPO

“We face a pervasive problem with a set of new challenges. 8 out of 10 LGBT students are still harassed at school each year because of who they are.

“We are working to change that.

“At GLSEN, we want every student, in every school, to be valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We believe that all students deserve a safe and affirming school environment where they can learn and grow.

“We accomplish our goals by working in hallways across the country — from Congress and the Department of Education to schools and district offices in your community — to improve school climate and champion LGBT issues in K-12 education.

  • We conduct extensive and original research to inform our evidence-based solutions for K-12 education.
  • We author developmentally appropriate resources for educators to use throughout their school community.
  • We partner with decision makers to ensure that comprehensive and inclusive safe schools policies are considered, passed and implemented.
  • We partner with dozens of national education organizations to leverage our shared expertise into creating great schools and better opportunities for every student.”

The Real Gay MafiaLast month, GLSEN Massachusetts held their annual conference in Boston where they hoped to introduce teachers, students and other homosexual activists to their liberal and perverted agenda. On their website, they state the purpose of the conference as:

“The conference is an opportunity for more than 250 students, educators, parents, and school staff to spend a day building community and sharing resources for creating safer, more affirming schools for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ) youth, educators, and allies.”

In all of this, where does it say anything about the ‘straight’ agenda? The only place it appears is in their name, not in their actions.

Brian Camenker, Founder and President of MassResistance has been working for nearly 20 years trying to stop the gay agenda of working its way into the Massachusetts public schools. He commented about the Boston conference, saying:

“They want kids to feel comfortable around homosexuality and those issues, feel comfortable coming out, feel comfortable taking on those behaviors, feeling comfortable with everything about it.”

“You wouldn’t think you could integrate homosexuality into much, but they do by saying something like “a woman does this and her wife does this. They will bring in homosexual themed books. One of their favorites is to claim that historical figures – Eleanor Roosevelt, for example – were actually homosexual.”

We have been torn apartIf you want to get an idea of just what GLSEN’s agenda is, I strongly urge you to visit the MassResistance website which describes what took place at the Boston conference, who the speakers were and what workshops they held to push their abominable agenda.

This isn’t just happening in Massachusetts, but in every state of the country. GLSEN is working with state and federal legislatures, the Department of Education and school districts everywhere pushing to get their agenda into your kids’ education and they are succeeding. This is another reason why parents should do whatever they can to keep their kids away from the public school system which currently is teaching nothing Christian, wholesome, moral or virtuous. A nation can be lost in one generation and we are losing America now. The future depends upon what your kids are being taught now.

‘This is more of their determination to shove homosexuality so far down the throats of America that we gag, and struggle to breath. They are insistent in the  brainwashing of children just like Hitler advocated in Germany. They don’t care about adults or parents. They want to train up children in their perverted sodomite ideologies so that the stigma of their wrong life choices is wiped away in the minds of future American citizens who have been programmed to believe that homosexuality is the norm, and all other sexual relations are abnormal. Please do not give up the fight. They MUST be stopped.” JB

‘Gay mafia’ attacks Focus on the Family movie

Intimidation campaign claims ‘Americans should not tolerate this’

Reported by Drew Zahn

Drew Zahn is a WND news editor who cut his journalist teeth as a member of the award-winning staff of Leadership, Christianity Today’s professional journal for church leaders. A former pastor, he is the editor of seven books, including Movie-Based Illustrations for Preaching & Teaching, which sparked his ongoing love affair with film and his weekly WND column, “Popcorn and a (world)view.”

Tim Sisarich, in “Irreplaceable”>>>

The Christian organization Focus on the Family is releasing a movie in theaters May 6 called “Irreplaceable” about the value of traditional families, the importance of fathers being engaged in their children’s lives and the healing power of forgiveness.

Tyranney Alert

But apparently to some advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, community, that’s a cardinal sin.

LGBT advocates have launched an effort to disparage the movie online, petition against it and work to make sure “Irreplaceable” isn’t seen in your local theater.

Focus President Jim Daly reports in a blog post that some of the more than 700 theaters nationwide scheduled to show the film in a one-night-only event are starting to back out, intimidated by homosexual activists.

“Some of those who disagree with us are calling ‘Irreplaceable’ ‘anti-gay propaganda,’” Daly writes, “and demanding that theaters refuse to show the film.”

Efforts to shut down the movie are being coordinated through Facebook, Twitter and a Change.org petition begun by Shalom Rosenberg, a homosexual middle school teacher from Belmont, Calif.

Tyranney Alert

“Although Focus on the Family has caused so much harm to so many, this is America and they are allowed to be hateful bigots,” Rosenberg states on his petition. “What is not acceptable is the fact that they are trying to pass this film off as a fair-minded or even ‘feel good’ documentary about love, family and marriage. This is not a documentary. This is anti-gay propaganda. Furthermore, it is unacceptable for mainstream theatres to allow this to play at their cineplexes nationwide, as if this were a legitimate film. Fair-minded Americans should not tolerate this kind of deception.”

An advanced copy of “Irreplaceable” obtained by WND, however, makes almost no reference to homosexuality. Instead, it contrasts the value of committed marriage against society’s rise in easy divorces, out-of-wedlock births and the “hook-up” culture. It follows the journey of New Zealand Focus employee Tim Sisarich on a journey around the world to understand the meaning of family, only to discover a very personal journey into forgiving his own father and becoming the kind of dad his children need.

“In our family relationships we’re floundering,” Daly told WND. “We don’t know what is true; we don’t know what a dad should do. … When you leave ‘Irreplaceable,’ you hopefully will conclude why I need to be a better dad, a better husband, a better mom, a better wife. I think you will leave the theater having a better understanding and a higher motivation to live the life of a higher calling, of sacrifice, of doing the right things to hopefully place your family in the best possible position to honor God.”

SEE TRAILER OF MOVIE BELOW:

Nonetheless, LGBT activists calling Focus on the Family “an anti-gay right-wing organization” have responded to the movie with a vengeance.

Even the sharply leftist HBO comedian Bill Maher has noticed the recent rash of swift and personal attacks against those who publicly speak out for traditional values.

“I think there is a gay mafia,” the “Real Time” host said during a panel discussion on his April 4 program. “I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.”

“We’ve received word that some theater owners are getting nervous and acquiescing to the demands of those who oppose free speech,” Daly writes. “We heard from one in Ohio just yesterday who decided to drop the film because they had received complaints and didn’t want to deal with all the ‘controversy’ attached to it.

“Ironically, this theater is currently showing ‘Bad Words’ – an R-rated movie one reviewer called ‘the best pedophile film of 2014,’” Daly continues. “I can only deduce that this Ohio theater owner believes the views presented in the ‘Bad Words’ movie are acceptable – but the millennia-old concept that marriage is the lifelong union of a man and a woman is not. Is this really where we are as a culture?”

Daly asks Focus on the Family supporters to pray for the film’s success and for those protesting it.

“Most of all, pray that “Irreplaceable” ignites a counter-cultural revolution that inspires husbands and wives to live lives committed to each other, and that moms and dads can see the beauty and worth of their everyday sacrifices as they parent their kids,” Daly concludes. “I believe this heart change can be what God uses to help heal our culture.”

5 Time Boxing Champ Warned His Biblical Views are Offensive

Evander-Holyfield-Big-Brother

What many people may or may not know is that Holyfield is an active Christian and gave millions of dollars to his church and various charities.  At times he has been outspoken about his faith and that just got him in hot water with the producers of Big Brother.  I need to add here that I have to question any Christian who would consider going on a program that is built upon lies, deception and sex, but nevertheless, Holyfield made it on the show.

In one episode, he is sitting in bed with a girl named Luisa when the subject of homosexuality comes up.  During the conversation, Holyfield tells her:

“The Bible lets you know that’s wrong, that’s right.”

Luisa continues to argue with Holyfield and later on in the discussion, he tells her that homosexuality is a choice and that it can be fixed.

After his comments, Holyfield is hauled before the narrator who is most likely acting on behalf of the producer who warns Holyfield about his offensive language in saying that homosexuality is wrong and it’s a choice.  The narrator’s chastisement went like this: (Listen carefully to the rebuke of the Big Brother spokesman)

“Big Brother” show warned him: “Before you entered the Big Brother house, the rules regarding unacceptable language and behavior were explained to you. Last night in a conversation with Luisa, you expressed the view that being gay was not normal and that it could be fixed.”

“Well Big Brother understands that these are the views you hold, they aren’t the views that are hold by a lot of sections of society and expressing these views will be extremely offensive to many people…”

“Big Brother does not tolerate the use of offensive language and therefore warn you to consider very carefully the effect of expressing such views may have and the harm and offense you may cause by repeating these views inside the house.”

It’s Duck Dynasty and Phil Robertson all over again.  Anyone can say anything they want against Christians, traditional marriage and family values, but just say one little thing against homosexuality and the world caves in around you.  These people claim over and over that they want tolerance, yet they are the most intolerant people out there.  From what I’ve seen and read over the past few years, I would say that gay activists are less tolerant about the truth of homosexuality than Al Sharpton is about the truth of racism.

Neither of them wants tolerance.  Both of them are demanding preferential treatment.  They insist on having the freedom to mock and condemn anyone they want and the protection against others doing the same to them.

No one cares anymore about offending a Christian.  And Christians aren’t doing anything to stop it.  When are Christians going to start standing up for their rights?  Why aren’t we complaining when we’re offended?  It’s our silence that has allowed this happen and it’s our voices that need to be heard to put an end to it.  Christians need to get off their butts and become warriors for Christ.  It’s time every Christian in America becomes an Ephesian 6 Christian:

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.”

You Knew it was Coming: “Experts” Say Pedophilia is a Sexual Orientation – Hard-wired at Birth


http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/12/knew-coming-experts-say-pedophilia-sexual-orientation-hard-wired-birth/#kA31v6TPzWGHQfqj.99

Posted By on Dec 27, 2013

The Toranto Star reports:

Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.

Now, many experts see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change — like a sexual orientation — thanks largely to a decade of research by Dr. James Cantor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

Cantor’s team has found that pedophiles share a number of physical characteristics, including differences in brain wiring. It’s now thought that about 1 to 5 per cent of men are pedophiles, meaning they are primarily attracted to children.

These findings have been widely accepted among scientists, but have had little impact on social attitudes or law. However, we are left with the alarming question: if some men are born pedophiles, what should society do with them?

Well, what do you suppose those who have kept their pedophilia under control to some extent, at least keeping it only in their thoughts?  They are doing the same thing the homosexuals are doing:  calling for societal acceptance, and a cry for special rights will soon be accompanying this demand.

Let me say that I realize all of us face different temptations.  Some are weaker in areas that others are not.  For those that fight against their temptations, whether homosexuality, pedophilia, fornication, pornography, adultery or a myriad of other sins, let me say “thank you.”  Thank you for not justifying your lusts and thank you for seeking to keep them under control.  The Bible commands us to repent of these lusts, as well as any action based on them, and Jesus Christ is a Savior of sinners from sin.

However, to accept that this is biological in nature is to miss the aspect of sin.  After all, even these that are claiming this is from birth cannot prove it.  As my friend Shea Bernard wrote, concerning homosexuality, “Dr. Francis S. Collins, head of the Human Genome Project, along with his team of over 150 of the top geneticists in the world, who sequenced and decoded the human genome, three years ahead of schedule, have emphatically said, ad nauseam, that there is NO gay gene.”  To that I would add that there was no discovery of a “pedophilia” gene either.  It may come as a surprise, but there are no “thieve” genes, “murderer” genes, or “liar” genes.  This is a spiritual issue and deals with the mind.

However, Cantor wants us to believe it is biological.  Cantor says of pedophilia:  ”It’s either purely biological or a mix of biological and experiential.”

Cantor and his former colleague, Michael Seto, are careful to differentiate between pedophiles and sex offenders.  The first, obviously has to do with the mental part and the second is the criminal action part.

So, how are they seeking to help those in the first category?  A website, of course.  Enter Virtuous Pedophiles.  It’s a website for pedophiles who have never molested children, but do have an attraction for them.

One individual that was pointed to in the article in the Star was a man by the name of Ethan Edwards, who at the age of 50 found he could no longer suppress his desires and simply look at young girls in a protective manner.  Edwards is the co-founder of Virtuous Pedophiles.

“I realized that young girls certainly took my breath away, more than grown-ups are usually charmed by kids,” Edwards said.

Edwards claims that his site desires to prevent child abuse, by reducing the stigma against non-offending pedophiles.  “We do not choose to be attracted to children, and we cannot make that attraction go away. But we can resist the temptation to abuse children sexually, and many of us present no danger to children whatsoever. Yet we are despised for having a sexual attraction that we did not choose, cannot change, and successfully resist.”

While I’m happy to hear that Edwards and others acknowledge their problem, see it as a problem and seek to keep it from being a problem for young children, it is those like Cantor and Seto that seek to justify the mental state and actions by claiming people are just “born this way” that concern me even more.  This is the same argument being used by the militant homosexuals to advance their agenda in this country.

You Might be Surprised: How to Destroy Homosexuality


 

http://clashdaily.com/2013/12/might-surprised-destroy-homosexuality/#ShjKJcMRuvjjjyvM.99

By / 22 December 2013

 
hand background

Anyone who reads my books and my articles understands that I’m a very simple man. I look at something and just write down what I see. I don’t try to complicate it. I am amazed at how confused the Christian community is about homosexuality. So let’s break it down to its simplest essence. Homosexuality is a sin. Why do I say that? It’s not me saying it. It’s God. You remember Him? The guy who made all life, the one who keeps the world spinning, the one who came down to earth to die for our sins? Yeah. That guy.

Here’s what the Bible says about homosexuality:

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

(NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)

That seems clear to me. According to the Bible there won’t be any practicing homosexuals in heaven. There may be repentant homosexuals, those who have given up that lifestyle in order to pursue a relationship with God, but it is clear to me that Tom cannot be a Christian while he is boinking Fred’s brains out. In the Bible God says homosexuality is unnatural and an abomination. Those are mighty strong words. The point is this: sin separates us from God. In order for us to be pals with the Almighty, we have to get rid of that sin. We can’t do it on our own because we sin everyday. That’s why the Son of God (Jesus Christ) shed his blood in payment for all our sins.

But homosexuality is a special sin because it is also a lifestyle. It’s not like “Oops, in a weak moment I succumbed to the sexual advances of my secretary and I slept with her. Now I feel guilty and I won’t do it again.” It’s more like “Oops, I don’t give a damn what the Bible says about it. This is what I want. This is what I’m going to do. And I’ll do it as often as I want. And I will destroy anyone who opposes me.”

Let’s face it. Homosexuals have come a long way. Back in the sixties when I was a kid, people called homosexuals things like “fudge-packers”, “homos”, “queers” and “faggots”. Now everyone calls them “gay”. That’s a brilliant piece of public relations work. Take an abomination and re-label it into something happy. Not only that, but they’ve convinced Christians to use the word “gay” as well. After all, how can you oppose something that sounds so happy?

But here’s the rub, folks. God isn’t gay and he ain’t happy.

I can look at my dog all day long and say, “You are such a nice cat.” But that won’t change the fact that he’s a dog. But these days I see Christians, even pastors, looking at homosexuality and saying, “This is a good thing. The romantic love between a man and a man is a good thing and should be treated like any other.”

But isn’t it possible that God gave man a penis for a reason, that he gave woman a vagina for a reason? Is it just coincidence that the two fit perfectly and bring us so much joy? How is it that after decades of a massive PR campaign, social acceptance, and media fawning, less than two percent of the population are actually converted to homosexuality?

Why haven’t more of us embraced this lifestyle? Here’s an obvious thought: “Because it’s yucky and repulsive.”

After reading one of my books, a homosexual called me up to scold me on the negative way I portrayed homosexuality. In a fit of rage, he said, “Just admit it, you’ll just never get past the mechanics of what we do to each other!”

I admit it. A man putting his penis inside another man’s rectum makes me want to vomit, and I’ll never get past it.

So why do they have to destroy any and all opposition to their lifestyle? It’s because they are defending a fragile fortress with walls of glass. This is so simple even a boy with a slingshot could bring the whole thing down. Therefore, the only way homosexuals can defend this indefensible position is to attack so ferociously that no one dares to come against them.

So how should Christians treat homosexuals? That’s easy. The same way Jesus would. Be their friends. Love them. Yes, it’s true that the homosexual act is a wicked sin. But then again, so is greed, adultery, and drunkenness.

Isn’t it ironic that the only way to defeat homosexuality is to love homosexuals?

For some of us that means we have to get past the “yuck” factor. It’s okay to hug a homosexual. You won’t catch anything. But it’s also good to shine the light of Truth on homosexuality. Jesus accepted and loved the adulteress, but he also told her to go and sin no more. You can love someone and still speak out against their lifestyle.

‘Gay’ lawmaker to Christians: ‘We’ll take your children’


WND.COM

Exclusive: Matt Barber asks, ‘Is this George Washington’s America, or Joseph Stalin’s Russia?’

http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/gay-lawmaker-to-christians-well-take-your-children/

crying_child

Few people doubt that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hopes to become president in 2016. Unfortunately for him, he may have just signed away any chance of that.

On Monday, Christie signed A3371, a draconian piece of legislation that bars licensed therapists from helping children overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior or identity. This law bans help for minors even when – as is so often the case – those same-sex attractions arise from childhood sexual abuse by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky.

This law will prohibit minors and their parents from receiving counseling they desire and will force counselors to violate ethical codes because they will not be able to help clients reach their own counseling goals. This law would enslave children – whether abused or not – to a subjectively determined sexual identity that they reject.

The connection between homosexual abuse and “gay identity” is undeniable. Consider this: Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have found that homosexual men are “at least three times more likely to report CSA (childhood sexual abuse)” than heterosexual men.

Moreover, the Archives of Sexual Behavior – no bastion of conservatism – determined in a 2001 study that nearly half of all gay-identified men were molested by a homosexual pedophile: “46 percent of homosexual men and 22 percent of homosexual women reported having been molested by a person of the same gender. This contrasts to only 7 percent of heterosexual men and 1 percent of heterosexual women reporting having been molested by a person of the same gender” noted the study.

For obvious reasons, this politically motivated law has been dubbed the “Jerry Sandusky Victimization Act.” Liberty Counsel, one of the fastest growing civil rights law firms in the country, has stepped in to protect New Jersey children, parents and licensed therapists. We’ve filed suit to block the law, as we’ve already blocked a similar law in California.

In his signing statement, Gov. Christie wrote: “Government should tread carefully into this area and I do so here reluctantly. I have scrutinized this piece of legislation with that concern in mind. However, I also believe that on issues of medical treatment for children we must look to experts in the field to determine the relative risks and rewards.”

Beyond the fact that Christie and the New Jersey Legislature have just violated the First Amendment rights of New Jersey parents, children and counselors, there remains another problem with his assertion. It’s not true. As with any form of therapy, the “experts” are all over the board on the issue of change therapy.

For instance, both New Jersey Democrats and Christie cited the American Psychological Association, or APA, as justification for this gross infringement on the right of self-determination. Although, no doubt, the highly liberal APA supports this and similar Sandusky Laws for political reasons, the group’s own task force on change therapy – led entirely by members who themselves are “gay”-identified or known political activists – has had to admit, nonetheless, that homosexuality itself “refers to feelings and self-concept.”

The taskforce confessed that such therapy has shown “varying degrees of satisfaction and varying perceptions of success.” It acknowledged within its own skewed, very limited “study” that some people had “altered their sexual orientation. … [P]articipants had multiple endpoints, including LGB identity, ex-gay identity, no sexual orientation identity, and a unique self-identity. … Individuals report a range of effects from their efforts to change their sexual orientation, including both benefits and harm.”

Reports of “both benefits and harm”? Exactly what might be expected from any form of therapy.

But that’s for adults. Here’s the kicker: The APA also acknowledged that there is no evidence whatsoever that change therapy harms minors. Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, addressed this, the most outrageous aspect of the law: “The very report that the governor cited for signing this law also admitted that there is absolutely zero research – none – regarding the effect of change therapy with minors.”

Get that? Gov. Christie just signed into law a bill purporting to prevent harm to minors from change therapy, citing, as the reason, an APA report that admits there is neither research nor empirical evidence to suggest that change therapy harms minors.

Is your head swimming? It should be.

The governor is one of three things. He is either: 1) ill-informed, 2) politically motivated or 3) stupid.

I don’t know, I guess he could be 4) all of the above.

Meanwhile, there are many experts outraged over this gross overreach by Christie and other New Jersey liberals. Dr. Nicholas Cummings, former president of the APA, wrote in USA Today: “Contending that all same-sex attraction is immutable is a distortion of reality. Attempting to characterize all sexual reorientation therapy as ‘unethical’ violates patient choice and gives an outside party a veto over patients’ goals for their own treatment. A political agenda shouldn’t prevent gays and lesbians who desire to change from making their own decisions.”

Dr. Cummings has testified to personally helping hundreds of formerly homosexual clients achieve the change they desired.

Things get more sinister yet. On Wednesday, New Jersey Assemblyman Tim Eustace, who sponsored the bill and is openly homosexual, bombastically compared change therapy to “beating a child” and suggested that the government take children seeking change away from their parents. He told Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, “What this does is prevent things that are harmful to people. If a parent were beating their child on a regular basis we would step in and remove that child from the house. If you pay somebody to beat your child or abuse your child, what’s the difference?”

Mat Staver responded on the same program: “It is shocking to hear the law’s sponsor threaten parents that the state will remove their children from them if they provide the counsel they need and which helps them. This is the ultimate nanny state,” he said.

I’ll take it a step further, and I think I speak for many Christian fathers. None of my three children suffer from unwanted same-sex attraction, but if any of them did and they decided to seek change therapy to reconcile their feelings with their faith, Mr. Eustace and the rest of his Gaystapo would be extremely ill-advised to crest my front porch with designs on taking my children.

Is this George Washington’s America, or Joseph Stalin’s Russia?

Liberals’ Quest to ‘Rehabilitate’ Christians


By / http://clashdaily.com/2013/08/liberals-quest-to-rehabilitate-christians/

Andre_Giant_-_Obey_(6823050093)

The homo-fascist rainbow-shirts are at it again. They’ve unsheathed, once more, their anti-Christian long knives.

Back in April, I wrote the following in a column headlined “Religious Freedom and ‘Gay Marriage’ Cannot Coexist”: “‘Gay pride’ necessitates anti-Christian hate. It must. ‘Gay marriage’ and other ‘sexual orientation’-based laws do violence to freedom and truth. They are the hammer with which the postmodern left intends to bludgeon bloody religious liberty and the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic.”

Liberals are anything if not predictable.

Chai Feldblum, President Obama’s EEOC commissioner – a lesbian activist who supports “plural marriage” – has called the clash between religious liberty and unfettered sexual license a “zero-sum game,” meaning that someone wins and someone loses.

Guess who loses in Feldblum’s book? She has “a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win” and candidly admits that liberals “want to revolutionize societal norms.” She believes that “gay sex is a moral good.”

She’s not alone.

Here’s the latest example of Feldblum’s words in action. The Oregonian Reports:

A same-sex couple who requested a cake for their wedding in January but were refused service by a Gresham bakery have filed a complaint with the state, alleging Sweet Cakes by Melissa discriminated against them based on their sexual orientation.

Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries’ civil rights division will investigate to determine if the business violated the Oregon Equality Act of 2007, which protects the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodations …

Rachel N. Cryer, 30, said she had gone to the Gresham bakery on Jan. 17 for a scheduled appointment to order a wedding cake. She met with the owner, Aaron Klein.

“Klein asked for the date of the wedding and names of the bride and groom”, Cryer said.

I told him, “There are two brides and our names are Rachel and Laurel,”‘ according to her complaint.

“Klein responded that his business does not provide its services for same-sex weddings”, she said.

“Respondent cited a religious belief for its refusal to make cakes for same-sex couples planning to marry,” the complaint says. …”

“We are committed to a fair and thorough investigation to determine whether there’s substantial evidence of unlawful discrimination,” said Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian …

Mr. Avakian then revealed what he views as a “fair and thorough investigation”: “Everybody is entitled to their own beliefs, but that doesn’t mean that folks have the right to discriminate,” he said.

Here’s the kicker. Read it closely:“‘The goal is never to shut down a business. The goal is to rehabilitate,’ Avakian said. ‘For those who do violate the law, we want them to learn from that experience and have a good, successful business in Oregon.’”

George Orwell much?

Get the not-so-thinly-veiled threat? Christians have a right to own a “successful business” in Oregon, so long as they don’t, well, be Christian – so long as they shelve their faith and submit to our ever-”progressive” government’s anti-Christian demands. “The goal is never to shut down a business,” but either you abandon the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic and dutifully observe postmodern sexual relativism, or government will shut you down in a Sodom and Gomorrah minute.

Brad, Rachel, Laurel and the rest of you left-wing bullies need to get this straight (so to speak): The godless left has been trying to “rehabilitate” Christians for over 2,000 years. We haven’t caved yet. What makes you think we will now? Those of us who wish to remain obedient to God will not – indeed, cannot – accommodate you and play along with your sin-centric “gay marriage” delusion.

Ain’t gonna happen.

Ever.

Look, you have every right to dress up in two wedding gowns or two tuxedos, get pretend “married” and play house to your hearts’ content. You do not have the right, however, to force others to abandon their sincerely held religious beliefs, thousands of years of history and the immutable reality of human biology to engage your little fantasy. No amount of hand-wringing, gnashing of teeth, suing Christians or filing charges against those of us who live in marriage reality will make us recognize your silly, so-called “marriage equality.”

Rather than trying to compel these Christians to participate in their counter-Christian mock marriage, all Ms. Rachel and Ms. Laurel had to do was take their business down the street. There are, no doubt, many bakers who share their worldly sexual morals (or lack thereof).

Imagine if a Christian came into a “gay”-owned bakery and demanded a cake with these words: “Homosexual behavior is shameful: Romans 1:27.” Think the left would be clamoring for charges against the baker if he refused? Me neither. In fact, I’d be the first to defend his right to “discriminate” against the Christian.

Or what if some anti-gun nut printing service refused to produce flyers for an NRA rally? Shouldn’t they have that right?

Or if some hippy bed and breakfast owner refused to host a conference challenging global warming alarmism. Shouldn’t he have the right to operate his business in accordance with his sincerely held beliefs?

Of course he should.

And so should Christians.

But … But … discrimination! “Homophobia”!

I know. Cry me a river.

Seriously, lefties, give it a rest. So-called “sexual orientation” laws are nothing like laws prohibiting racial, age, disability or gender discrimination. Those qualities are based on neutral, immutable characteristics. Even liberals admit that “sexual orientation” is based on “fluid” feelings and behaviors. It’s about what you do, not who you are. It’s about what you believe and who you choose to have sex with, not the color of your skin.

Ken Hutcherson, an influential black pastor from the Seattle area, put it well: “It has been said loudly and proudly that gay marriage is a civil rights issue. If that’s the case, then gays would be the new African-Americans. I’m here to tell you now, and hopefully for the last time, that the gay community is not the new African-American community.

“Don’t compare your sin to my skin!” he demands.

Some things never change.

Other things do.

Today’s liberals seek to “rehabilitate” Christians to their way of thinking under penalty of law. Liberals of old just threw us to the lions.

I guess that’s what they mean by “progress.”
