‘Gay’ Sex Kills-‘Day of Silence’ Info

Posted by wordforit on April 25, 2008

It doesn’t make sense. Why are children being introduced to matters in the public schools that do not have an impact on education? Whether parents agree that a gay lifestyle is acceptable, these are still topics that should not be “universal learning”. I know homosexuality is a fact of life for some and that many students think ‘Jerry Springer’ promotes glamour, but keeping the focus on sex has proven to be detrimental.

Sheer insanity, but Matt Barber offers suggestions below with links to “Day of Truth” and others in an effort to counter this latest unGodly grab for our children.

Romans 1:24-27 ~ “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

2Tomothy 3:16~ “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”

Can you imagine officials at a middle school, junior high or high school setting aside a day to promote “tolerance” for heavy smoking and drinking among children? How about a day where teachers encourage kids to “embrace who they are”, pick up that crack pipe and give it a stiff toke? 

Neither can I. The public would go ballistic, and for good reason. 

But that hasn’t stopped officials in thousands of schools across the country from promoting other politically correct and socially “in-vogue” behaviors that – both statistically and manifestly – are every bit as dangerous as the aforementioned frowned-upon behaviors.

That’s exactly what the homosexual activist “Day of Silence” is all about – advancing, through clever, feel-good propaganda, full acceptance among children of the homosexual lifestyle. 

Just the Facts Ma’am

By recently admitting that “HIV is a gay disease,” Matt Foreman, outgoing Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, acknowledged what the medical community has known for decades: the homosexual lifestyle is extremely high-risk and often leads to disease and even death.

In fact, multiple studies have established that homosexual conduct, especially among males, is considerably more hazardous to one’s health than a lifetime of chain smoking.

To the consternation of “gay” activist flat-earthers and homosexual AIDS holocaust deniers everywhere, one such study – conducted by pro-“gay” researchers in Canada – was published in the International Journal of Epidemiology (IJE) in 1997.

While the medical consensus is that smoking knocks from two to 10 years off an individual’s life expectancy, the IJE study found that homosexual conduct shortens the lifespan of “gays” by an astounding “8 to 20 years” – more than twice that of smoking.

“[U]nder even the most liberal assumptions,” concluded the study, “gay and bisexual men in this urban centre are now experiencing a life expectancy similar to that experienced by all men in Canada in the year 1871. …. [L]ife expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men.”

This morose reality makes a strong case for a fitting redefinition of so-called “homophobia,” that being “Homophobia:  The rational fear that ‘gay sex’ will kill you!”

The fact that we don’t have mandatory surgeon general warnings on the side of condom wrappers is a testament to the power and influence wielded by the radical homosexual lobby.  (Warning: Male-male anal sodomy has been proven to shorten your lifespan by up to 20 years.)

Not surprisingly, that same homosexual lobby and its codependent enablers in the mainstream media moved quickly to sweep the IJE study under the rug.  Under tremendous pressure, the researchers who conducted the study even jumped into the political damage control fray issuing a statement which read, “[W]e do not condone the use of our research in a manner that restricts the political or human rights of gay and bisexual men or any other group.”

Yeah, so?

Of course, that’s all just worthless fluff.  All the political spin in the world doesn’t change reality, nor does it eliminate the study’s disturbing conclusions or practical implications.  The research left ZERO wiggle room for anyone who would argue that homosexuality is a “perfectly normal and healthy alternative sexual orientation.”

The risks associated with homosexual conduct are so drastic, in fact, that U.S. health regulations prohibit men who have sex with men (MSM) and women who have had sex with MSM, from even donating blood.

Consider that, according to the Food and Drug Administration, MSM, “have an HIV prevalence 60 times higher than the general population, 800 times higher than first time blood donors and 8,000 times higher than repeat blood donors.”

Adults and children who engage in homosexual conduct, especially males, are also susceptible, at an astronomical rate, to nearly all other forms of sexually transmitted disease (STD).  For example, the Hepatitis B virus is about five to six times more prevalent among “gays,” and Hepatitis C is twice as common.

But perhaps most shocking are today’s syphilis rates among homosexual men and adolescents.  A recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that although homosexuals comprise only a fraction of the population (one to two percent), they account for an epidemic 64 percent of all syphilis cases.

The “Day of Silence”

In light of the irrefutable medical facts, it should be considered criminally reckless for educators to teach children that homosexual conduct is a normal, safe and perfectly acceptable alternative form of sexual expression (or “sexual orientation”). 

But instead, the “gay” lifestyle is vigorously promoted in our public schools.  Sexually confused children who suffer from gender identity disorder and same-sex attractions are told to “embrace who they are,” and are encouraged to entertain deviant and dangerous sexual temptations.  “But always use a condom!” liberal educators bellow.  (Forget that condoms have a perilously high failure rate and are incapable of preventing numerous STDs such as the HPV virus.)

On April 25, 2008, the pro-homosexual indoctrination of your children comes to a boil.  Homosexual activists and like-minded liberal educators will be pushing the so-called “Day of Silence” on kids in thousands of schools across the country.

The “Day of Silence” (DOS) is organized by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), one of the most militant and well-funded of the powerful homosexual pressure groups.  DOS purports to confront the alleged systematic harassment and bullying of children who self-identify as homosexual, bisexual or “transgender.” (For a sampling of the kinds of things GLSEN teaches children, click here.  Be warned, though.  It’s pretty graphic.)

To be sure, bullying and harassment should not be tolerated against anyone, anywhere for any reason, and those who engage in such activities should be firmly disciplined.  However, DOS has very little to do with “bullying” and has everything to do with propaganda. 

During DOS, children and teachers are encouraged to disrupt the school day by refusing to speak, in a show of support to self-described “gay,” “lesbian,” “bisexual” and “transgender” students.  Kids are additionally taught that Biblical truth, which holds that human sexuality is a gift from God shared between husband and wife within the bonds of marriage, is “homophobic,” “hateful” and “discriminatory.”

Our schools are supposed to be places of learning, not places of political indoctrination.  It’s the height of impropriety and cynicism for “gay” activists and school officials to use good-hearted but misguided children as pawns in their attempt to further a deceptive, highly controversial and polarizing political agenda.

DOS is pure, unadulterated propaganda and, based on the medical science, amounts to nothing short of educational malpractice.  With liberal school officials in tow, these militant homosexual activists are brazenly circumventing and abusing parental authority to further this dangerous political agenda.  DOS is also a slap in the face to the many students with traditional moral values.

So, it’s time for the “Day of Silence” to finally live up to its name.  It’s time for these radical adult activists to be silent in our children’s schools.

And you can to do something to help.

At DOS-participating schools all over the country, parents are joining with dozens of pro-family organizations, such as Concerned Women for America (CWA), in a “Day of Silence Walkout.” They’re keeping their kids home from school on DOS as a show of protest.  (For more information visit http://www.missionamerica.com). 

Parents and children are also strongly encouraged to participate in the Alliance Defense Fund’s non-disruptive “Day of Truth,” which will follow DOS on Monday, April 28, 2008.  (For more information visit http://www.dayoftruth.org).

Children are impressionable.  Their young minds are fresh clay ready for molding, and these adult homosexual activists know it.  Your child’s spiritual, emotional and physical well-being belongs in your hands, not in the hands of liberal activists and elitist educators with a deceptive and destructive political agenda.

It’s time to shatter the silence with truth.

Homosex in a Public Park Near You/ 16 Known Public Spots Where Men Solicit Sex

Posted by wordforit on March 26, 2008

Two articles worthy of consideration. . . more of what we can expect to be confronted with in our daily lives. Please read these, especially if you have children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors with kids, kids in your town, if you were ever a kid—you get what I mean!!

There are many aspects void of common sense, much less common decency, when people want to flaunt their debauchery in front of the world (e.g., engage in sexual intercourse in public parks—legally).

I remember an interview from several years ago in which a murderer calmly explained that after the first murder, the rest become “easier and kind of necessary”. Does that speak to human nature in general? Once that first step is taken, the conscience is a step further from guilt pangs and the demons rage to be fed? 

1Timothy 4:1-2~ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Homosex in a public park near you

By Olivia St. John

WorldNetDaily

Good news for homosexuals in Amsterdam: Starting this summer, you will be able to indulge your sexual lusts in the open in the city’s favorite park without fear of arrest or persecution.

Bad news for dog owners in Amsterdam: You will be fined if your dog is unleashed in that same park.

According to the online version of the Daily Telegraph, Dutch council officials will permit gay sex in public areas, but fine dog owners who let their pets off the leash in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark. Alderman Paul van Grieken says homosexual sex in public “causes little bother for others and for a certain group actually means much pleasure.” In fact, the Dutch police are encouraging all Dutch parks to follow Amsterdam’s lead.

Four thousand miles away in the heart of the Bible Belt, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission stated that they are “powerless” to address the five-year-old problem of homosexuals engaging in and soliciting for sex in a state park enjoyed by families. Due to “lack of full-time enforcement,” the best the commission can do is to cordon off the existing parking area and create a new parking area, trail and animal observation platform, funded by North Carolina taxpayers and the Audubon society.

Last year, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Mayor Jim Naugle faced demands for his resignation when, according to LifeSiteNews.com, he “committed to cleaning up the problem of male sex taking place in [Fort Lauderdale’s main] children’s park public washrooms.” He’s been accused of “hate-speech” and being “homophobic” and “bigoted.”

These three examples surely beg the question: Do homosexual rights supersede the rights of the public? Is law enforcement helpless as homosexuals shout, “We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it”?

Perhaps transsexual sex in public parks is next. Lesbian activist and attorney Jennifer Levi recently asserted in the pro-homosexual newspaper Bay Windows that “… the need to end discrimination against the transgender community outweighs discomfort that others might have when sharing facilities with them.”

In other words, if you’re a woman and you feel unsafe when a man walks into a female public restroom, or if you feel repulsed seeing two men having sex while you’re walking with your children through a park, the homosexual message is: Get over it.

Why are locations close to innocent children so favored and fought for by many homosexuals? They want sex in parks near playgrounds and library restrooms, both without threat of arrest. It’s a homosexual’s dream to be an adult in the Boy Scouts. The real joy comes from discussing details of sexual mechanics in public school classrooms.

Is society as a whole being manipulated by the homosexual movement the same way a parent is manipulated when a pedophile is closing in on a child? Pedophiles work to gain the trust of parents, while simultaneously trying to arouse a child’s interest in sex.

Dr. Gene Abel, medical director of the Behavioral Medicine Institute of Atlanta, compared groups of self-confessed homosexual and heterosexual molesters. A sampling of molestation rates indicated that the homosexuals averaged molesting 150 children each, while the heterosexuals molested 19.8 victims each.

To be sure, reaching out to people with sexual addictions, whether they be heterosexual, homosexual, or other variants, is a noble cause. Many Christians extend compassion to those struggling with sexual disorders. Many former homosexuals have finally found peace. These are not people to hate, but people to be concerned for.

But in the midst of all this, the reality is that children are at serious risk as the homosexual agenda proliferates in our nation’s public schools and continues invading our public space. The homosexual movement does not view moral people as friends, but our children are strongly desired, and they represent a hub around which the homosexual movement spins.

A 24-page booklet titled “Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth” is slated for distribution in all 16,000 school districts in the country. Candi Cushman, education analyst for Focus on the Family Action, states that the material “communicates that religious-based viewpoints are harmful, and even dangerous.”

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly captured the essence of the homosexual movement’s goal when Media Matters for America reported his protesting “the San Diego Padres’ decision to host a gay pride night and a children’s hat giveaway promotion” during a baseball game. O’Reilly said that “thousands of gay adults showed up and commingled with straight families.” He insisted that “clear-thinking people understand it is completely out of context and inappropriate.”

Then O’Reilly solidly hit the ball out of the park when he said it is “insane” to “cluster” homosexuals and lesbians during an event for children under 12.

Are we helpless in protecting our kids? By no means.

We can start by removing our children from the public schools, which stand at the vanguard of teaching and normalizing the homosexual lifestyle. Check your child’s school library and sex-ed curriculum if you doubt that fact.

Cluster your kids around your table throughout the day and inculcate decency and values in their hearts. Home education researcher Dr. Brian Ray has an apt name for this healthy lifestyle: Parent-led home-based discipleship.

Those influenced by the “rulers of the darkness of this world” are doing their best to “call evil good and good evil” by using the public airwaves, public parks and public schools to push deviant sexual practices into the faces of our innocent children.

An entire generation is at risk.

Parents, what are you going to do about it?

16 Known Public Spots where Men Solicit Sex

News 12 at 11, February 13, 2008

Just 10 days ago, deputies arrested 10 men for propositioning sex from undercover officers; 8 at Pendleton King Park, 2 more at Lake Olmstead.

Turns out, that was just the tip of the iceberg.

In a News 12 exclusive investigation, Lynnsey Gardner found there are 16 well known public places men are soliciting sex and only she has the information the sheriff’s office is using to try to stop it.

The Sheriff’s Office promises another sting soon to break up what they call dangerous behavior that is a threat to the public.

Augusta’s riverwalk is a downtown staple and tourist favorite, and it has also become a playground for men soliciting sex from other men.

Sgt. Richard Elim, a RCSO Vice Investigator, “We’re not talking about someone who is trying to get someone’s phone number or something like that, we’re talking about someone trying to engage in a sexual encounter in public.”

Information obtained by news 12 and confirmed by the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office tells of 16 local public places where men say they engage in open sexual activity.

It’s called cruising..and men even document the best ways to meet, including when and exactly where to go. At the riverwalk, a park bench on the lower level is suggested; evenings and early mornings, considered the best times to find someone.

“This is kind of surprising. There’s a better way to do it than that.” Father Ricky Duhart brings his three kids here every week. He says he had no idea their playground was also enjoyed in other ways — illegally. “It will make me more aware where i take my kids and be aware of my surroundings.”

And Riverwalk is not alone. “Various stores, libraries, book stores,” explains Sgt. Elim.

Borders at Augusta Exchange and Books-A-Million on Washington road to be exact. The men’s bathroom here at the Georgia Welcome Center on I-20 is included, the back two stalls considered the best location once inside. Also mentioned, bathrooms at the Augusta mall, inside the Home Depot on Bobby Jones, even the Medical College of Georgia Library.

Out of the 16 hot spots on the list, one of the newly added ones is the Pilot Gas Station bathroom at Riverwatch and I-20. It’s so new, yet it’s already the most popular.

“It’s unsafe behavior. One person engaging in these behavior could be robbed, they could catch a sexual transmitted disease or they could be hurt.” explains Sgt. Elim.

So what can we expect?? More stings like the ones at Pendleton King Park. More than 30 men were arrested there in 2004, eight more just this year.

And Sgt. Elim says all 16 places are now under the watchful eye of the Sheriff’s Office, “If they come back to these areas, we’re going to come back to these areas and we’re going to do as many of these operations we need to do to make our public feel safe.”

News 12 did ask all of the above businesses for comment, but were denied by all of them; most citing a corporate policy that did not allow them to speak to the media.

                    ::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Romans 1: 28-32~ And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Pro-Gay Booklet’s ‘Facts’ Draw Criticism

Posted by wordforit on February 26, 2008

By Alexander Sheffrin

Christian Post Contributor

A coalition led by the National Educational Association (NEA) and the American Psychological Association (APA) has come under fire recently over a published booklet that was distributed throughout the nation’s 16,000 school districts, and which critics claim endorses homosexuality.

The 24-page booklet, titled “Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth,” claims to act as a helpful guide for educators “who confront sensitive issues involving gay, lesbian and bisexual students.”

“Many adolescents as well as adults may identify themselves as lesbian, gay, or bisexual,” reads the booklet, published the Just the Facts Coalition. “This is particularly relevant during adolescence because experimentation and discovery are normal and common during this developmental period.”

The booklet, which claims to include “the most recent information from professional health organizations,” further states:

“Most lesbian, gay, and bisexual youths are healthy individuals who have significant attachments to and make contributions to their families, peers, schools, and religious institutions.

“Thus, the idea that homosexuality is a mental disorder or that the emergence of same-sex attraction and orientation among some adolescents is in any way abnormal or mentally unhealthy, has no support among any mainstream health and mental health professional organizations.”

Conservative groups, in response, have dismissed both the booklet and its “facts.”

“Among the so-called ‘facts’ in the 24-page document is the opinion that homosexuality is ‘a normal expression of human sexuality,'” stated Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), in an email to FRC supporters.

Perkins derided both the NEA and APA in their roles in producing the booklet.

“For years, the organization (NEA) has used teachers’ dues to subsidize its top officials’ left-wing fanaticism, which includes everything from promoting homosexuality and abortion in schools to pushing birth control,” Perkins stated.

“The APA is no better. In the past few decades, the group has gone from listing homosexuality as a mental disorder to becoming one of its biggest champions in the public square,” he added.

Perkins accused the two groups of “using their influence to transform public schools into incubators for their radical social agendas.”

Most recently, in an effort to counter the booklets’ influence in schools, the FRC has released a guide for parents, titled “Homosexuality in your child’s school.”

“Despite decades of activism and media propaganda promoting acceptance and celebration of homosexuality, and a number of political and judicial victories for the pro-homosexual movement, polls show that a clear majority of Americans still believe that homosexual behavior is ‘morally wrong,” said Paul Sprigg, vice president for policy of the FRC.

“This pamphlet will equip you to oppose this promotion of homosexuality in your child’s school,” he added.

First formed in 1998, the Just the Facts coalition produced the original version of its booklet “to respond to concerns that school personnel were receiving inaccurate information on the issue of sexual orientation.” The updated publication “reflects the coalition’s continuing concern about the safety and well-being of gay, lesbian and bisexual students.”

The coalition is comprised of 13 different groups.
