Parental Rights Undermined by Homosexual Agenda

December 9, 2011

From Alliance Defense Fund blog:

Should our parental rights to raise our children be trumped by our children’s sexual choices—those which are championed by radical groups such as the ACLU (complaining that abstinence programs do not work because “they leave teens in the dark about how to protect themselves from unintended pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), if and when teens choose to become sexually active”)?

Obama Plans to Push LGBT Rights Across the Globe

December 8, 2011

From our friends at the Family Research Council:

The Obama administration put a bow on its efforts to radicalize other countries on the issue of homosexuality. In their observance of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it clear where their “human rights” priorities lie. In keeping with the anniversary, the White House issued a “Presidential Memorandum” directing “all agencies engaged abroad” to promote the homosexual and transgender agenda.

Obama Denounces NC Marriage Amendment

September 23, 2011

The Obama administration has denounced approval by the North Carolina legislature of a ballot initiative to define marriage as between one man and one woman.

“The President has long believed that gay and lesbian couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples,” White House spokesman Shin Inouye said. “That’s why he has called for repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and determined that his administration would no longer defend the constitutionality of DOMA in the courts.”

Religious Liberty Threat: Forced Benefits for Gay Partners

September 13, 2011

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill that will require all businesses that have contracts in excess of $100,000 with the state to provide benefits to the same-sex partners of homosexual employees.

Ron Prentice of ProtectMarriage.com, said that at the heart of the so-called “Equal Benefits” law is “a small minority of individuals” which has “abused their offices to mandate the silencing of rights of conscience and religious liberty through government interference.”

The Lyin’ King: A Must Read.

April 27, 2011

(written in response to the major DC law firm King & Spalding dropping its representation defending the Defense of Marriage Act due to pressure from homosexual groups.  From FRC’s Daily Briefing 4-26-11)

Attorneys at King & Spalding probably thought that ditching the federal marriage case would save the firm a lot of trouble. Boy, did that strategy backfire! In the end, its decision to bail on a client is causing much more controversy than it ended. Less than a week into its contract with the U.S. House, King & Spalding decided that they didn’t have the stomach to tangle with the homosexual community. In the face of a little pressure, attorneys dropped the suit faster than you can say “political correctness.”

Instead of sparing King from criticism, the choice heaped on more. People on both sides of the marriage debate have spent the last 24 hours blasting the firm for running scared. As the case’s lead attorney, former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement, said in his resignation letter, denying representation to one side of a legal challenge “is a profound threat to the rule of law… When it comes to the lawyers, the surest way to be on the wrong side of history is to abandon a client in the face of hostile criticism.” The Wall Street Journal was less gentle in its assessment, slamming King & Spalding for “invertebrate representation.” “To drop a case under political pressure is especially unethical,” editors wrote. “The Human Rights Campaign has every right to challenge DOMA in court, but it does itself no honor by trying to deny that same right to DOMA supporters…”

For the last several years, groups like HRC have managed to frighten most of Corporate America into tiptoeing around the gay community. And for much of the decade, they’ve succeeded. Case in point: King & Spalding would rather lose the country’s greatest Supreme Court lawyer than confront an HRC smear campaign! But it looks like the Left may have finally overreached. This firestorm is exposing homosexual activists for what they are–spineless bullies. FRC’s Ken Klukowski talked about their strategy of oppression in a column for Townhall. “They scream about freedom when it suits their purpose, only to deny others freedom to even be heard… The truth is never afraid of a good [fight]. At the core of the First Amendment is the idea that people must be free to speak because the best ideas should win in the end…”

The people who avoid a debate are the ones afraid of losing. That’s why the groups like GetEQUAL and others are forming what is basically a mobile protest unit. Yesterday, its activists rallied outside the offices of King & Spalding–only to learn that its attorneys had bailed on the case. So what did they do? Hopped in the car, drove across town to Paul Clement’s new firm, and started demonstrating there. “I think Bancroft PPLC just bought itself a world of pain,” wrote one blogger. “Go get them!!!” As far as they’re concerned, the Constitution doesn’t decide who gets lawyers–homosexuals do. Those intimidation games may have worked before, but don’t count on it now, says the Washington Post. “It may just be that dumping the House of Representatives as its client is proving to be potentially more… damaging to the firm than sticking by a client.” FRC’s Peter Sprigg was on target in a message he tweeted earlier today: Being falsely accused of bigotry may not be as bad as proving beyond all doubt that you’re a coward!

Are Christians Obsessed With Gays and Abortion?

March 14, 2011

This is an article truly worth reading.  David French looks at the facts versus the perception:

Imagine a world in which mainstream coverage of Christian America reflected our actual expenditures and actual efforts. You’d barely hear from people like me, and perhaps you wouldn’t even have to. We’d have the entirely justified reputation as America’s most generous community. Yet instead we’re labeled as “homophobic” or “anti-choice,” and that label dogs us in all aspects of our public life.

But that’s because of other people’s obsessions. Not ours.

Is It True That “1 in 10 Teens Has Had a Same-Sex Partner”?

October 28, 2010

In a word, No. That’s why it’s important to look at the data behind the headline, especially given the bias that exists in the media. In this article, Kevin DeYoung takes a deeper look at a study, and a headline. http://bit.ly/bsHHwV

When is a leg not a leg? When it’s not.

August 16, 2010

We bring you a must-read article from Professor Stephen J. Heany on the fallacy of “same-sex marriage.” http://bit.ly/cpEdWU
Abraham Lincoln once asked how many legs a dog has if we call a tail a leg. The answer, he said, is four: calling a tail a leg does not make it so. We chuckle and move on. But what if people began to argue that a tail really is a leg? READ THE REST HERE

Central Institution of Society Takes a Direct Hit

August 6, 2010

From Dr. Albert Mohler on the overturning of Proposition 8:
http://www.albertmohler.com/2010/08/05/the-gavel-falls-on-marriage-the-proposition-8-decision/

“Thousands of cases make their way through the Federal courts each year. Some are important, but only a few have lasting legal significance. Whatever happens on appeal, the decision handed down yesterday by Judge Vaughn R. Walker will reverberate for decades to come. Yesterday, a very important gavel fell on marriage. The central institution of human civilization suffered a direct hit, and its future hangs in the balance.”
