These are 3 separate articles originally written/posted Oct. 2009 which is STILL the subject of the hour. America continues to be bullied to accept an agenda that is clearly unbiblical and unnatural and has deliberately put your moral and religious conscience under the bus.
STAND UP FOR TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE AND NATURAL FAMILY.
American Family Association says it best: Everywhere hate crimes laws have gone into effect, they have been quickly used to intimidate, silence and punish people of faith who express deeply held religious objections to the normalization of homosexuality…Such laws not only punish officially disapproved speech and thought, they create two tiers of victims. Under hate crimes laws, some victims get more protections than others, which violate the fundamental American principle of equality under the law.
Obama will deliver the Human Rights (Campaign) event’s speech tomorrow night (10/10/09) at HRC’s 13th annual national dinner. Gay activists want the president to say he will oppose measures intended to compromise LGBT rights:
“We are honored to share this night with President Obama, who has called upon our nation to embrace LGBT people as brothers and sisters,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “It is fitting that he will speak to our community on the night that we pay tribute to his friend and mentor Senator Edward Kennedy, who knew that as president, Barack Obama would take on the unfinished business of this nation – equal rights for the LGBT community, and for every person who believes in liberty and justice for all.”
How can there be liberty and justice for all when we as Christians are NOT included in any protection from the government through any legislation from this new administration? How do you reconcile this with the American Public which is 77% Christian? This cannot be justified or defensible.
It is not the White House’s job to make everyone happy – their responsibility is to make sure all Americans follow the law to the letter, not make it up as they go along. Anything else is a poor attempt at trying to control and bind the hands of God by allowing the Gay Agenda in public schools, churches and the government.
Defense of Marriage Act – HR3396: (1996) To define and protect the institution of marriage; `In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word `marriage’ means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word `spouse’ refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.’
The Human Rights Campaign called on the president to repeal DOMA, saying ‘it is time for you to use your leadership to translate these principles into meaningful action.’ House Democrats introduced legislation last month that would overturn DOMA. And of course, the Gay Agenda has their version, or fiction, of ‘marriage’ – the Respect for Marriage Act. Sounds nice, eh? Sounds so normal and almost soccer mom-ish, doesn’t it? Well, it’s Respect for SAME SEX Marriage – only.
The bill (Respect for Marriage Act, HR 3567) would repeal all three sections of DOMA – which federally defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman – including section 1, which is the name; section 2, which instructs states not to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states; and section 3, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing legally performed same-sex marriages.
Essentially what the gay community wants, according to the RMA and Rep. Barney Frank, is recognition of their legal marriage in a state where same sex marriage is not legal in order to gain access to federal and state money and spousal benefits – along with defining legal marriage with ‘persons’, not a man and woman.
However, as I had reported just last week, a ‘couple’ moved to Texas and filed for divorce. Legally, same sex marriage is not recognized in Texas which would make their request null and void. Of course, they are taking steps to repeal instead of going back to the state where they got ‘married’ to get divorced.
Mark 10:6-9 says, in the words of Jesus Christ – v6 ‘But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ v7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. v9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.’ –NKJV-
Jesus emphasizes that marriage, as a permanent relationship between a man and a woman, goes back to God’s purpose at the beginning of creation. His purpose being that married couples bear children; Genesis 1:27-28. Nowhere in Scripture was artificial insemination or IVF mentioned to populate the Earth for same sex couples. The gay community can do all they want to overturn traditional marriage, and there’s a chance that it may come to pass…but know this: God does not change; He will never change His mind about the sin of homosexuality or that marriage is between a man and woman so that they may ‘be fruitful and multiply to replenish the Earth’.
Man + Woman = Children. Period.
Here is another baby step to losing all of our personal freedoms and right to privacy as a free American citizen.
The truth is that the Gay Agenda is trying to scare straight American Christians in NOT voting against gay marriage, adoption or foster parenting. According to the The Boston Globe in 2006, the campaign has attracted controversy and opponents are reported as saying that “it’s real purpose is to intimidate”. Likewise in 2009 in The Seattle Times, Larry Stickney of the group Protect Marriage Washington reportedly accused the homosexual lobby of adopting “hostile, undemocratic, intimidating tactics“. As well in 2009 Associated Press reported via abc40 news that the Arkansas Family Council may ask lawmakers to block the release of this information on the grounds that it violated the rights to privacy of those who signed the petitions.
KnowThyNeighbor, the gay rights organization that drew national attention for posting online the names of over half a million anti-gay petition signers in Massachusetts and Florida, announced today that it has posted the names of over 83,000 Arkansas citizens who signed an anti-gay adoption and foster care petition in 2008. The names are accessible in a searchable database.
KnowThyNeighbor.org’s efforts in Arkansas led to exposing the signature of Wal-Mart CEO Mike Duke as one of the people who signed the petition to put an anti-gay adoption ban on the ballot in Arkansas.
From the New York Times: Opponents of releasing the names, led by Protect Marriage Washington, the group behind the referendum, say gay rights groups are threatening free speech by intimidating petition signers. James Bopp Jr., the lead lawyer for the group, filed affidavits from people who said they felt threatened for taking their position on the issue. Larry Stickney, the campaign manager of Protect Marriage Washington, has also complained of feeling threatened, he said.
And heterosexual conservative Christians hate and are judgmental? The nature of HATE is from the LGBT’s thinking that publishing names of those that signed petitions against the Gay Agenda in any facet will make us stop campaigning against what is a crime against nature, against God, against natural family and Godly marriage.
As in Massachusetts and Florida, KnowThyNeighbor.org expects that many petition signers will be confronted about their actions as their names are discovered on the website by family members, friends, coworkers, customers, and acquaintances.
You should feel threatened by those that want to embarrass Christians (or think they are) for their Godly convictions. In fact, I would call this an act of terrorism against a sect of people that believe in the Word of God as it is written, Holy Spirit inspired, to the world. This is clearly a HATE CRIME against those that believed that their signature and decision was a private matter.
Back to the future….
All this being said, the Gay Agenda is exactly that, an AGENDA. This country was founded upon Christian principles which never included same-sex marriage on any level within the Constitution. The progressive liberal agenda has always sought to make Christians an endangered species. What is incredible to me is how seemingly conservative people are caving to this horrific agenda simply because they ‘know’ someone that claims to be afflicted. The affliction goes all the way back to either parents or friends allowing an unnatural behavior to be not just accepted but applauded. We have regressed to the point of being unrecognizable as a nation.
And probably what is the most loathsome issue is allowing same-sex couples or homosexuals to foster, adopt, artificially inseminate, or IVF to have children. These children were never asked if they wanted a mommy AND daddy. A recent story said, “A western Ohio man is jailed on charges that he raped three adopted children and allowed other men to have sex with a boy.”
God help us all.
