Gov. Christie Signs Discrimination Into Law

Gov. Christie has now become party to government intrusion on doctor-patient relationships, thereby serving as a useful pawn of the gay activist agenda. Will it stigmatize and shame him in the end?

The Day of Silencing

The Day of Silencing

Dr. Michael L. Brown – Guest Columnist – 4/12/2012 11:05:00 AMBookmark and Share

Dr. Michael Brown (FIRE School of Ministry)columnists archives buttonOn April 20, in thousands of schools across America, your hard-earned tax dollars will help underwrite the homosexual indoctrination of your kids. Yes, April 20 will mark the annual Day of Silence, described on its website as "a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools." As for those who do not support a special school day devoted to gay indoctrination, they are the ones who can expect to be silenced.

Originally the brainchild of some college students in 1996, the Day of Silence has been aggressively promoted for the last 12 years by GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network. (Based on its activities, GLSEN would better be described as the Gay & Lesbian Sexual Education Network.) GLSEN calls on students to remain silent during non-instructional school times on the Day of Silence, thereby standing in solidarity with LGBT youth who are silenced through bullying and harassment.
But don’t some schools already have generic, anti-bullying programs in place along with special, daylong events to highlight the destructive effects of bullying, a subject that should concern all of us? Of course they do, but that’s not enough. GLSEN insists that a special focus must be put on LGBT kids, as if bullying a gay kid was worse than bullying a fat kid.
But there’s more that takes place on the Day of Silence: A pro-homosexuality message is often sent to the students, with teachers and administrators frequently promoting homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism over the course of the day. That’s why thousands of schools (and not just students) officially participate in the event, with the explicit backing of GLSEN. What about other messages being introduced during the day to balance the discussion? Perish the thought.
Just ask PFOX (Parents and Friends of ExGays and Gays), which announced its intention to hand out literature on the Day of Silence. According to PFOX president Greg Quinlan, "PFOX is calling on students to distribute flyers promoting acceptance of ex-gays. Former homosexuals and their supporters are ridiculed and forced to live in silence. Our nation’s schools deny students with unwanted same-sex attractions any support or fact-based information that feelings can and do change."
How was this announcement welcomed? According to one gay journalist, "the fact that they are attempting to sneak in their harmful message on the Day of Silence, a day which is supposed to show support for those who are forced into silence by outside pressures, shows just how deceptive their message truly is."
How dare they introduce their message on the Day of Silence! As expressed in 2004 by gay activist Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN and most recently President Obama’s Safe School Czar, "Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation’s public schools. A line has been drawn. There is no ‘other side’ when you’re talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students." Ah yes, the voice of tolerance speaks once again.
What about the Day of Dialogue, sponsored by the evangelical Christian organization Focus on the Family, and scheduled this year for April 19, the day before the Day of Silence? This event encourages "student-initiated conversations about the fact that God cares about our lives, our relationships and our sexuality …. [Jesus'] example calls us to stand up for those being harmed or bullied while offering the light of what God’s word says."
Surely this event will be welcomed, right? Not a chance. As expressed by a professing Christian woman with a self-described "hair-trigger sensitivity for the protection of LGBT youth," the Day of Dialogue has something "very rotten" at its core. She writes (on LGBTQNATION.com): "Allowing Focus on the Family to export their historical and counter-productive sacred discrimination of the LGBT community to Christian youth is a mistake." To repeat the words of Kevin Jennings: "There is no ‘other side’ when you’re talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students."
Last week an elementary school teacher from Florida called into my radio program, identifying himself as a black male but not wanting to give any specifics about the grade he taught at school. He was concerned that his job could be in jeopardy if he dared speak out against the Day of Silence. (Other elementary school teachers have told me privately that they dare not speak out against the overt homosexual activism they see on a regular basis in their schools — remember, we’re talking about elementary schools — for fear of losing their jobs.)
Although the Day of Silence had not yet been introduced to this gentleman’s school in Florida, the faculty members were discussing strategies for its future implementation, with explicit instructions to present this as a civil rights issue. (Needless to say, this black American also did not approve of equating gay activism with the civil rights movement.) And what should the teacher do if a student raised a religious or moral objection to homosexuality? The conversation, he was told, should immediately be turned back to gay civil rights, and no religious or moral objections should be entertained.
Yes, the Day of Silence has become the Day of Silencing — unless parents and educators and students determine to let their voices be heard. Now would be a good time to start.

Study: U.S. has 4M ‘gay’ adults; 1.7% of populace

Lisa Leff – Associated Press Writer – 4/7/2011 9:35:00 AMBookmark and Share

Associated Press logo small 2SAN FRANCISCO – A California demographer has released a best guess of how many homosexual adults are in the U.S.

Gary Gates puts the figure at 4 million adults, representing 1.7 percent of the 18-and-over population. That’s much lower than the 3 to 5 percent that has been the conventional wisdom in the last two decades, based on other isolated studies. It’s also a fraction of the figure put out by Alfred Kinsey, who said in the 1940s that 10 percent of the men he surveyed were "predominantly homosexual."

Gates has advised the Census Bureau. He’s a demographer-in-residence at the Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles.

He derived his results [PDF] from five studies that asked subjects about their sexual orientations.

2011 Gay Shoppers Guide: The Home Depot earns high marks as gay-friendly

2011 Gay Shoppers Guide: The Home Depot earns high marks as gay-friendly

January 4, 2011
Dear Robert,

The nation’s largest homosexual activist group, Human Rights Campaign (HRC), has just released its "2011 Guide to companies, products and services that support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace inclusion."

The Home Depot is listed as a Top 20 national retailer for promoting homosexuality by placing in HRC’s "highest workplace equality score" category.

The Home Depot and HRC have a very close relationship. During the 2010 Atlanta Gay Pride Festival, The Home Depot said it "is proud to support the efforts of the Human Rights Campaign."

The HRC was one of the foremost advocates in pushing for repeal of the military’s "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" policy last month. In fact, Senator Joe Lieberman said "the repeal would not have happened without…the Human Rights Campaign."

Did you catch that? Homosexuals can now bring their lifestyle into military service because of HRC’s efforts, and The Home Depot says it "is proud to support HRC’s efforts."

This is a clear signal that The Home Depot supports repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" and allowing "out and proud" homosexuals to serve in our nation’s military.

Worth Fighting For

Worth Fighting For

The Update remains on Summer break and will return next week, but I wanted to respond to inquires and concerns that have been expressed about the news that former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman has now chosen to identify himself as homosexual.

First, I am saddened by this announcement. I’m saddened because I know Ken and care about him as a person. Homosexuality not only has negative implications for society, it also has profound, well-documented negative physical and mental health consequences for those who engage in homosexual conduct as well.

This unfortunate confirmation helps explain the scandalous failure of many in the Republican establishment to vigorously uphold the values and policy positions expressed in the party’s platform in 2004 and 2008, particularly the need to protect the definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman nationwide. While grassroots activists succeeded in passing marriage amendments in dozens of states across the country, they received little support and even outright resistance from Party officials at the national level, which contributed to the GOP’s electoral failures in 2006 and 2008. Now we know one of the major reasons why.

With this announcement about his homosexuality, Ken also announced that he would join those who have mounted the assault on marriage through the activist courts. Not only does this run counter to the historical principles of the Republican Party, it stands in direct opposition to the Party’s platform which is clear on the importance of marriage and family. The Party’s unequivocal stand on life, marriage, and family is why many social conservatives have made the GOP their political home.

It is important for the conservative movement that the Republican Party remains committed to its longtime stance on core social issues. The Party and the movement will suffer if the GOP adopts a foolish strategy of seeking votes by pandering to the two-percent of the population who are homosexual or bisexual–and thereby alienating the majority of conservative voters.

** When the news about Mehlman hit the wires this morning, FRC’s two Kens–Blackwell and Klukowski–tackled the tough road ahead for the Republican Party in a brand new column. "If Republicans flinch on marriage," they write," America could have eight years of President Obama." You can check out their op-ed, "Disaster Looms If GOP Changes Course On Gay Marriage," on Fox News now.

Dissenters Will Be Punished!

without comments

Dissenters Will Be Punished!

Homosexual activists are no longer content to try to end "discrimination" against homosexuals–they are now trying to impose discrimination on anyone who dissents from their views. The most recent evidence comes from Georgia, where Augusta State University counseling student Jennifer Keeton has had to file a federal lawsuit, with the help of our friends at Alliance Defense Fund, to defend her rights. When Jen expressed her Christian view that homosexual conduct is morally wrong in class and in private conversation with other students, the faculty responded by insisting that she participate in a "remediation plan"–essentially, a year-long program of intensive pro-homosexual indoctrination that would only be considered successful if she abandoned her moral values.

Unfortunately, this is not the first such story of political correctness in the counseling profession reaching totalitarian levels. ADF is representing a student who was already kicked out of a similar program at Eastern Michigan University, and another woman who was fired as a counselor for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, her story appears on our video "ENDA: The End of Religious Freedom in America?." This radical agenda–not just to officially affirm homosexuality, but to forcefully crush any dissent–is exactly what Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has endorsed. When will they learn that we have no intention of forfeiting our constitutional right to free speech and freedom of religion?

Defense Authorization Bill: Question of the Day

If the "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" policy is revoked, what would the medical implications be? Dr. Robert Labutta (U.S. Army, Colonel, Ret.) addresses those concerns in today’s video clip.

Q: "What are the health implications if the law is changed to allow open homosexuality in the military?"

Homosexuals are identified by the U.S. government as a cohort at high risk for sexually transmitted diseases like HIV/AIDS. At the National HIV Prevention Conference in August 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that AIDS is 50 times more common in men who have sex with men (homosexuals and bisexuals) than in other populations. HIV is already a threat to military readiness–although HIV-positive recruits are excluded from the military, those who become HIV-positive while serving cannot be discharged, but they also cannot be deployed overseas. However, this is far from the only health risk to homosexuals. One of the nation’s leading AIDS researchers, Ronald Stall, has declared, "It may be a fallacy to say that HIV is the dominant, most dangerous and most damaging epidemic among gay men in the United States today. There are at least four other epidemics occurring among gay men that are intertwining and making each other worse. This is called a syndemic." The "four other epidemics" are "substance abuse, partner violence, depression and childhood sexual abuse."

Pruning "Marriage" Rights in the Garden State

New Jersey is enjoying something of a conservative Renaissance. Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) strong defense of fiscal and social conservatism is being augmented by the work of New Jersey’s Supreme Court, which has now stated it will not review litigation that threatens to make homosexual "marriage" legal. The decision in the Garden State’s highest court was 3-3, in itself a tie, but for a motion to proceed four affirmative votes are required.

As noted by the Philadelphia Enquirer, Chief Justice Stuart Rabner and two colleagues stated that the case "cannot be decided without the development of an appropriate trial-like record," and denied the plaintiffs’ motion without prejudice. This means, in essence, that proponents of "gay marriage" will have to begin in a lower court before their case reaches the state’s highest bench.

This follows legislative action earlier this year in which the New Jersey State Senate voted down a bill to legalize homosexual "marriage." Gov. Christie has said he would support an amendment to the New Jersey Constitution, as 30 states have already done, prohibiting same-sex "marriage." Although New Jersey recognizes "civil unions," it is clear that the state’s governor, elected representatives, and leading judges are not willing to be bullied by the activist homosexual lobby into circumventing the processes by which the ridiculous notion of homosexual "marriage" can even be considered. For that, they deserve the gratitude of those of us who believe not just in marriage as it was designed by God but who also respect the rule of law.

Where Was the Church in Houston on Election Day?
by Gary DeMar

I’ve known Dr. Steven Hotze for 25 years. He was one of the first Christians to take the principles outlined in my God and Government series and train men in a biblical understanding of government. He didn’t just talk about these principles; he applied them in the realm of politics in the city of Houston and the state of Texas. When ministers stood up and preached the Bible to all of life, there were a number of political victories that resulted in social transformation . . . Continue Reading

Logical Fallacies of Global Warming
by Joel McDurmon

One of the “Fallacies of Cause” I address in my book Biblical Logic is one that confuses simultaneity for causation. In other words, just because two things occur at or near the same time, someone may fallaciously assume that one caused the other. We call this Cum Hoc Propter Hoc, which is Latin for “With this, because of this.” The same exposure of folly as the After This Fallacy applies here to the With This Fallacy: a myriad of possible causes exist—many we . . .

"Homosexuality Is Not ‘A Civil Right’"

without comments

"Homosexuality Is Not ‘A Civil Right’"

The California Orange County Board of Education voted unanimously (5-0) to oppose the creation of Harvey Milk Day.  Gov. Schwarzenegger is ordering it to be observed.
The chairman of the Orange County (California) Board of Education says she is "appalled" that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is asking schools to set aside a day to honor a controversial homosexual activist.
Schwarzenegger signed a bill earlier this week creating an annual day of recognition for Harvey Milk. The designation of each May 22 as "Harvey Milk Day" encourages schools around the state to commemorate the murdered homosexual politician and activist. (See earlier story)
Last month, the Orange County Board of Education voted unanimously (5-0) to oppose the creation of Harvey Milk Day. Dr. Alexandria Coronado, chairman of that board, says she is "absolutely furious" that the homosexual community is claiming that passage of the Harvey Milk bill is a civil rights victory.
"I think it just absolutely denigrates the entire civil rights movement. Homosexuality is not a civil right," Coronado emphasizes.
"I don’t remember the last time that a homosexual person was forced to move out of their seat on a public bus, like Rosa Parks. And I don’t remember the last time that a homosexual person or student…was forced to go to a segregated school, as in the case of Mendez v. Westminster, which took place right here in Orange County, California."
Dr. Coronado says she also opposes Harvey Milk Day because several Californians are more worthy than Milk of a special day of recognition, including the late President Ronald Reagan and former Governor Pat Brown. She also argues that Harvey Milk Day wastes school staff time and money that could be used for more educational purposes.  (OneNewsNow.com 10/14/09)
