Pro Gay Agenda

The gay agenda does exist and it is winning in certain sectors! The gay agenda is creating a very strong foothold in many different spheres of society. The gay agenda is a well-organized plan strategized by gay activist with specific goals in mind. This agenda covers a spectrum of mediums to help people become more desensitized on the subject of homosexuality. Their agenda covers our education systems (starting with preschools leading right up to college), our Christian colleges, Seminaries, our media (television, movies, music, and internet), our legislative system and our Churches. Their agenda is to teach acceptance of homosexuality. Their agenda is to infiltrate all systems that oppose their lifestyle and inundate it with gay propaganda. Their goal is to change American's perception on homosexual behavior.

It is vital that we know how to respond, that we know and understand the agenda that is playing out and what is at stake in our own individual lives, families and also to our country. We need to understand how this agenda threatens our lives, families, children, and religious freedoms.
Tolerance
Tolerance defined:
The homosexual agenda declares it has a totalitarian agenda; but the agenda just doesn't demand to be accepted it demands to be celebrated and indoctrinated! If the homosexual ideology sweeps through America it is over for our children and family structure as we know it. The place you feel the pressure to be most silence is the place the demons are raging the most!

The foundation of the homosexual movement in America, began during the late nineteenth century when dislocated workers began leaving the family farms and moving to big cities. Many of these men were separated from their families and worked in dehumanizing situations and succumbed to the lure of alcohol and sexual vice. Before long homosexual subculture began to emerge in many cities throughout America- with San Francisco, New Orleans, and New York City leading the way in the exploration of the homosexual lifestyle. It was after WW2 that the feminist movement arose "the genie of lesbian and gay experimentation had been let out of the bottle. Things would never be quite the same again i  ."

Shortly after the arising of the homosexual movement two documents were written: 1. 1972 Gay Platform, 2. 1987 Homosexual Manifest (which is a congressional act- having the backing of some who are in congress). In recent events of Obama's electors for different Czar Positions many are embracing the homosexual movement, and put into their positions because they do support the agenda. These two documents helped stream line the agenda, and give the agenda a push toward social reformed and tolerance toward homosexuality. "Every state had laws that made homosexuality a crime, and a guilty verdict could lead to imprisonment or admission to a mental institution ii  ."

Obama's Czar- openly appointing radical homosexuals with an agenda to change our schools, our work place, and places of faith. When you elect a president, you're not just electing a person. In essence, you're allowing that person to nominate those in important government positions.

1. Kevin Jennings- Safe School Czar
  • Jennings was undoubtedly chosen for this post (which does not require Senate confirmation) because the foundation of the homosexual education agenda is the concept of "safe schools." However, "safe schools" as GLSEN defines them are like "hate crime laws" for kids. GLSEN's model legislation would create protected categories like "sex, gender, . . . sexual orientation, [and] gender identity or expression." (Ironically, they don't include protection for the factor that GLSEN's own research shows is the most common reason for harassment of students -- "the way they look or their body size.") Everyone opposes violence, name-calling, and other forms of bullying. As with "hate crimes," though, GLSEN's "safe schools" do not protect everyone equally, but instead single out homosexuals for more protection than others.
    2. Chai Fildblum- Equal Employment Commission
    • In the world of Chai Feldblum, defending sodomy and homosexuality-based relationships is a "moral" endeavor. Legally speaking, she sees the battle between "gay rights" and religious/moral opposition to homosexuality as a "zero sum game" - i.e., one side wins and the other side loses. But if the "right" of homosexuals and transsexuals to have their lifestyles approved supersedes the freedom of Americans to act on their belief that homosexual behavior is wrong, then wouldn't Christians and moral Americans become second-class citizens?
    • Commission signed a manifesto praising polygamy and arguing traditional marriage should not be privileged above other forms of union iv  ."
  • To eventually wipe out marriage. "I, for one, am not sure whether marriage is a normatively good institution. I have moved away from the belief that marriage is clearly the best normative way to structure intimate relations, such that government should be actively supporting this social arrangement above all others." 3. Fred Davie- Council of Faith- Based and Neighborhood Partnerships
    4. Jeffery Crowley- Office of National AIDS policy

    Fluid Sexuality
    Fluid Sexuality- is a term used when a person over times changes his or her preference of sexual activity. One interesting trend in the literature is the growing acknowledgment by gay-affirming therapists that sexual identity, attractions and behavior are often "fluid," particularly for bisexual and lesbian women.
    Kinsey Scale: The Kinsey scale attempts to measure sexual orientation, from 0 (exclusively heterosexual) to 6 (exclusively homosexual). It was first published in Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948) by Alfred Kinsey, Wardell Pomeroy and others, and was also prominent in the complementary work Sexual Behavior in the Human Female (1953).
    0      Exclusively heterosexual
    1      Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual
    2      Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual
    3      Equally heterosexual and homosexual
    4      Predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally heterosexual
    5      Predominantly homosexual, only incidentally heterosexual
    6      Exclusively homosexual

    Destructive Forces There has been a study done on decadent cultures (decay or decline) and what occurs in the infrastructure of these cultures when the cultures increasingly choose lewdness and moral decay as the substance of their foundations. When nations choose to turn away from God, or choose to be a Godless society and embrace impulses that the cultural is setting up to become a moral standard for that nation.

    A healthy society can only survive as long as strong families exist and sexuality activities are restricted to marriage (this is the natural- God-given boundary- once this is alluded and shifts many evils follow behind). "Centuries of solid evidence make the point only too well: sexual promiscuity and a loss of respect for the sanctity of marriage lead inevitably to cultural decline and eventual collapse". In his research project, Carl Wilson found that decadent cultures display seven distinct characteristics of social and moral change:
    1. Men reject spiritual and moral development as the leaders of families.
    2. Men begin to neglect their families in search of material gain.
    3. Men begin to engage in adulterous relationships or in homosexual sex.
    4. Women begin to devalue the role of motherhood and homemaker.
    5. Husbands and wives begin to compete with each other, and families disintegrate.
    6. Selfish individualism fragments society into warring factions.
    7. Men and women lose their faith in God and reject all authority over their lives. The loss of religious faith means that virtues such as trust, honor, and respect must fail, and the customs of chastity and self denial no longer restrain society's worst impulses v  ."

    Time Magazine: Time Essay: The fascination of Decadence written in 1979.
    What will make historians laugh at us here in America is how we dressed up words such as tolerance, religious rights, civil rights, hedonism held hands with it and allowed it to walk us down a street of decadence- and we called it freedom. This article written in 1979 says a lot about the direction of our country not only in the '70's but thirty years later in the society that has allowed cultural relativism and lewdness to define us.

    "Richard Gilman can be granted his central point: "that 'decadence' is an unstable word and concept whose significations and weights continually change in response to shifts in morals, social, and cultural attitudes, and even technology." But the protean term (displaying great diversity or variety) is still tempting. It seems the one word that will do to point toward something moribund in a culture, the metastasis of despair that occurs when a society loses faith in its own future, when its energy wanes and dies. It would probably be more narrowly accurate to use words like corrupt or depraved to describe, say, punk rock, or murder in a gas line, but decadent is more popular because it contains a prophecy. To be decadent is to be not just corrupt, but terminally corrupt. "Decadence" speaks with the iron will of history and the punishment of the Lord. It is an accusation. "Woe to those who are at ease in Zion," wrote the prophet Amos, "and to those who feel secure on the mountain of Samaria. Woe to those who lie upon beds of ivory, who drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the finest oils."

    One could construct a kind of "worst-case scenario" to prove that the U.S., with the rest of the West, has fallen into dangerous decline. The case might be argued thus: the nation's pattern is moral and social failure, embellished by hedonism. The work ethic is nearly as dead as the Weimar Republic. Bureaucracies keep cloning themselves. Resources vanish. Education fails to educate. The system of justice collapses into a parody of justice. An underclass is trapped, half out of sight, while an opulent traffic passes overhead. Religion gives way to narcissistic self-improvement cults.

    There is more. Society fattens its children on junk food and then permits them to be enlisted in pornographic films. The nation subdivides into a dozen drug cultures - the alcohol culture, the cocaine culture, the heroin culture, the Valium culture, the amphetamine culture, and combinations thereof. Legal abortions and the pervasive custom of contraception suggest a society so chary of its future that it has lost its will to perpetuate itself. Says British Author Malcolm Muggeridge: "What will make historians laugh at us is how we express our decadence in terms of freedom and humanism. Western society suffers from a largely unconscious collective death wish vi ."

    Soul Force
    By definition: freedom for lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless nonviolent resistance. In the last five years this group has come to Bethel, North Central and also Northwestern Colleges- although it is in their mission statement to be peaceful many times they are disruptive, and also forceful (i.e. blocking doors at North Central so students could not go to class, throwing things at students and yelling "fag-haters").

    Soul Force Mission Statement.
    Wherever you are on your journey of faith,
    Whatever your sexual orientation or gender identity,
    Whatever your religion, race, age, ability, color, or creed,
    You are welcome to join us in learning, teaching, and applying
    the 'soul force' principles of relentless nonviolent resistance
    as taught by Gandhi and King
    as we work together to stop spiritual violence
    against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people
    that flows out of the teachings and actions
    of religious leaders and their communities of faith.
    -The People of Soulforce

    Currently we are hearing reports from Christian College campus that certain GLBT clubs are openly recruiting in-coming freshman to the gay lifestyle. Many families feel that sending their children to a Christian College is a safe guard but many innocent people are becoming their prey. Some college campuses are going out of their way to recruit incoming freshmen to their campuses if they practice a homosexual behavior. Bridegwater State College in Massachusetts announced; "that it was offering a special scholarship for homosexual students who were 'cut off financially' from their parent because for their sexual behavior'" vii ."
    • Dormitories being altered to help homosexual students feel more comfortable.
    • Christian Groups being kicked off college campuses.
    • Queer Studies 101- Lesbian Lives n the U.S. (University of Northern Iowa and University of Iowa), Gay Men and Homophobia in American Culture (University of Minnesota) viii ."
    Soulforce now has a group called Sunday of Solidarity that encourages groups of LGBTQ and allied people around the country to train themselves in nonviolent direct action and communication, and then attend worship services and seek conversation with leaders at a church of their choice - a church that is not welcoming and affirming of openly LGBTQ members and guests.

    Positive Media Portrayal of Homosexuals has Desensitized America

    Positive images of gay men and women in the media have made it easier for people to be more accepting of this lifestyle. The homosexual producers of television shows have used the prime time sit-com to slowly leak their desensitizing on Americans. They have used comedy to help laugh our way into their agenda and relaxing us in our uncomfortable(ness) to homosexuality. "...using comedy as a vehicle to overcome the natural resistance of adults, and playing on the curiosity and credulity of child. By sheer persistence, the gay-friendly media have been forcing Americans to accept homosexuality as a normal, and natural choice, whether they believe it or not ix ."

    Canada already has a Gay network (PrideVision) for their cable TV that features both soft and hard-core porn to its viewers. Brent Bozell, head of the Media Research Center states, "Perhaps the silver lining in all of this is that a gay channel will show the American public the real version of homosexual life, a life based on rampant sex and despair, rather than whitewashed portrayals presently shown on network television x ."

    "Martian gathering evidence about American society, simply by monitoring our television, would certainly assume that there were more gay people in American than there are evangelical Christians xi ."

    Eric McCromick, openly gay man on Will and Grace, stated the intentions of the produces early on. He said, "I would love to get to the point where grandmothers in Kansas are saying, 'I just hope that Will finds a nice man.' We're not a political show but that would be a real coup xii ."

    "Homosexuals producers and directors readily admit that humor is their best weapon to soften up the American public for the future promotion of their agenda xiii ."
