Leftist thinking says this “culture war” has been won, LGBT is out and proud as a global concept, supported & championed by leading institutions etc.

…well, it’s not over yet.

The Times concludes with the following “libertarian” statement … “all religions”, as if all religions celebrate this.

[Pixar] obviously recognize that their audience, or potential audience, includes the L.G.B.T.Q. community, just as it includes people of all genders, races, ethnicities, religions and so on.”

New York Times – May 24, 2020

Here, however is a bit of a “fact check”.

…so no, “all religions” don’t welcome this so much. About half of the global population does not agree with this “enlightened” and “progressive” view. And if you want to try assert that Christianity “welcomes” this, the people are welcomed, loved even, but the action is not. If you are wondering about the numbers in those shrinking “liberal churches” that disagree with this, consider that some portions in the “Mixed” group does not approve of this either.

This is not that numbers determine truth, but if there was a global vote on this, pro-LGBT legislation would fail. Democracy surely has it’s limits – just look at the reactions after Trump became president. Full acceptance of the will of the people? Not so much.

“We’ll get you through your children!”

These words were shouted to Norman Podhoretz in 1958 by beat poet and pioneer gay activist Allen Ginsberg at the end of an unsuccessful summit. According to Daniel Oppenheimer in his book Exit Right, “A decade later (1968) that threat would prove one of the fulcrums around which Podhoretz would execute his hard pivot to the right.”

Ginsberg’s words have proven true. Leftists and LGBTQ activists and their allies have waged an effective ideological war on our children, proclaiming that gay is good, that biological sex is changeable, and that heterosexual unions are really no different than homosexual unions.

Quote from BBC:

Ugandan MPs have passed a controversial bill that will ban miniskirts.

The anti-pornography bill, which also outlaws overtly sexual material including music videos, was voted through after a short debate.

When Simon Lokodo, Uganda’s ethics and integrity minister, proposed the legislation earlier this year, he said that women who wore “anything above the knee” should be arrested.

The bill needs to be approved by the president before becoming law.

Uganda is a socially conservative country – it is also considering legislation to increase the punishment for homosexual acts, which are already illegal.

According to Uganda’s private Monitor newspaper, the new legislation will outlaw material which shows parts of the body including breasts, thighs and buttocks, or any erotic behaviour intended to cause sexual excitement.

It will also ban anything that shows indecent acts or behaviour intended to corrupt morals, the paper reports.

A new chapter in America’s moral revolution came today as Atlanta pastor Louie Giglio withdrew from giving the benediction at President Obama’s second inaugural ceremony. In a statement released to the White House and the Presidential Inaugural Committee, Giglio said that he withdrew because of the furor that emerged yesterday after a liberal watchdog group revealed that almost twenty years ago he had preached a sermon in which he had stated that homosexuality is a sin and that the “only way out of a homosexual lifestyle … is through the healing power of Jesus.”

In other words, a Christian pastor has been effectively disinvited from delivering an inaugural prayer because he believes and teaches Christian truth. (more…)

How would or should the youth of today relate to the gospel? How can it still be relevant in this day and age? If it is still relevant why do surveys find that “churched” youth often depart from the basics of the faith? Three audio segments combined above, full show linked to below.

In the upside-down, gay activist lexicon, tolerance means intolerance, inclusivity means exclusivity, and diversity means “my way or the highway.” Angela McCaskill, associate provost of diversity and inclusion at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., is the latest victim of the diversity police.

McCaskill is now on administrative leave after working at Gallaudet for 23 years. She assumed her current position as the university’s first chief diversity officer in January 2011, and she seemed ideally suited for her job, being female, African-American and deaf.

In fact, she was “the first deaf African-American woman to earn a Ph.D.” from Gallaudet, hailed as “the nation’s premiere school for the deaf.” At present, however, she is so shaken by the university’s actions that her husband reports she is under doctor’s care.

What was this accomplished woman’s great transgression? As a private citizen and resident of Maryland, she signed a petition in July supporting marriage as the union of a man and woman. She signed this petition on the way out of a church service where her pastor had preached against redefining marriage. Almost three months later, a faculty member became aware of this and issued a complaint to the university, and McCaskill was immediately relieved of her responsibilities.

PlanetDeafQueer reported that, “On November 6th, Maryland voters will decide whether the Civil Marriage Protection Act, which was enacted by the Maryland legislature and grants lesbian and gay couples the equal right to marry, is upheld or rejected. While there are many that support overturning this important civil rights legislation, one person you would never expect to be in favor of doing so is Gallaudet University’s own Chief Diversity Officer and Maryland resident, Dr. Angela McCaskill,” noting that her “job at Gallaudet is to promote diversity and inclusion at Gallaudet.”

But there is not a single mention of gay or lesbian issues on the university’s Web page entitled, “About the Office for Diversity and Inclusion.” Instead, the Mission Statement declares, “The mission of the Office for Diversity and Inclusion at Gallaudet University is to promote an academically enriching and supportive climate that allows all the diverse members of its community to thrive and succeed. The Office for Diversity and Inclusion will achieve its mission by collaborating with units on campus to intentionally design a comprehensive, university-wide approach to diversity; facilitate equity, access, social justice and inclusion; and, empower students, faculty, and staff to build a diverse and inclusive campus community. Through the cultivation of diversity, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion will lead efforts to institutionalize diversity as a fundamental transformative force that fosters professional growth and academic excellence.”

Can someone fulfill this role without believing that marriage should be radically redefined? Is it possible for the chief diversity officer “to promote an academically enriching and supportive climate that allows all the diverse members of its community to thrive and succeed” without believing that a man should be able to marry a man and a woman marry a woman?

The answer is obviously yes, since even PlanetDeafQueer noted that, “McCaskill is well liked by students. ‘She’s been a great ally to the LGBT community and supported many of the LGBTQA Resource Center’s programs,’ said one student, who asked to remain anonymous. ‘I’m heartbroken about this.’” So, you can be a friend of the LGBT community without believing that marriage should be redefined.

But there’s a more fundamental question to ask: Whatever happened to “diversity and inclusion”? Whatever happened to Dr. McCaskill’s Constitutional rights and freedoms?

Before “diversity and inclusion” became gay activist code words, they actually used to mean what they meant. (What a novel idea!) “Diversity and inclusion” referred to the welcoming of diverse viewpoints and ideologies and peoples. Now, however, in classic doublespeak, they mean the opposite of their original definition (and in the name of “tolerance” at that). – Source

The Gay Protest That Encountered the Love of God

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” – John 1:5

On May 8, 2012, North Carolina voters approved “amendment one“, 61% to 38% – with the purpose…
“…to Amend the Constitution to Provide That Marriage Between One Man and
One Woman is the Only Domestic Legal Union That Shall Be Valid or Recognized in This State.”

Note the interesting debate with the caller around 18:55 into the audio above.

Bible believing husbands, primarily, should watch the video at the bottom of this post. If you watched Courageous, you would also understand why & have a better idea what God expects from each married man. Yes, it ain’t easy, but “we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us“!

Recently the liberal “open minded”, “diversity focused” press and the “social elite class” found themselves in shock & horror since they were thoroughly convinced that “everyone” believes that marriage is (just) a social arrangement (more on if that is true here) that has been overdue for an “upgrade” for thousands of years. Now they stand in utter amazement, perplexity & embarrassment at how the so-called uneducated & uninformed people, (that also voted in the government) cast this woeful tribulation upon them. What would the world think? How anti-“progressive” can North Carolina be?! Sarcasm intended.

It is plain that many people still believe in the truth that the Bible conveys. Not in promoting hate, disgust or any “holier than thou” attitudes, but in showing everyone, in a loving, compassionate way that “God has a better way”. Children should not be subjected to “queer education” & encouraged to “explore their sexuality” at any age – nevermind the ages at which some small kids are forced into it now in American schools & parents are not allowed, by law, to prevent participation. Activism is the issue, not the personal inclination or things that should happen & kept in private.

May 8th, was a rough day for the liberal elites of North Carolina, as the people of their home state overwhelmingly passed the marriage amendment. Roseanne Barr, always good for an insightful quote, urged movie studios to “withdraw your productions from NC!” (Note to Ms. Barr: If memory serves me correctly, Hollywood is located in California, a state which has twice passed marriage amendments. Perhaps you should call for all movie studios to withdraw their productions from there?)

And there were the expected headlines from ultra-liberal and/or gay activist websites. The Daily Kos reported, “The bigots win: North Carolina passes Amendment One,” and Queerty.com opined, “It’s a sad day in North Carolina. Actually make that in the entire U.S.”

Some celebrities who hail from North Carolina were especially distraught, with American Idol Clay Aiken stating, “In general, we have always been a state that takes responsible steps and this is an example, the only example in my lifetime, of the state taking a very irresponsible step.”

Actress Evan Rachel Wood tweeted, “Just bent over on set and cried over this outcome. I hope my children see a more peaceful and tolerant world.”

For the liberal elites still living within North Carolina, however, the passage of Amendment One by a 61-39% vote was almost too much bear. The headline to the Charlotte Observer editorial, which was released minutes after the amendment’s passage was announced, declared, “Same-sex marriage amendment vote is just wrong.” And the editorial began by stating, “North Carolina foolishly and shamefully joined 30 states with constitutional bans on same-sex marriages.”

The Observer called the amendment “misguided,” claimed that it “unwisely writes discrimination into the state constitution,” argued that, “The state is on the wrong side of history on this matter,” and closed by stating, “The [voting] result doesn’t show love. It’s wrong and disgraceful.”

There was not the slightest attempt to disguise the newspaper’s bitterness and embarrassment and not a hint of journalistic restraint, as the editors three times described the actions of the strong majority of North Carolinians as “wrong,” also calling their vote foolish, shameful, unwise, discriminatory, not showing love, and disgraceful. As for the editors themselves, they were “disappointed.”

In Asheville, North Carolina, columnist John Boyle wrote, “As much as I hate to say this, I’m ashamed of my state right now,” and he predicted that the day would come when “we’ll look back at this legalized intolerance and wonder, ‘Why were people so bigoted then?’”

But no one said it better than the Democratic Governor of North Carolina, Beverly Perdue, who, if I recall, was actually elected to office by some of the very people she now disparages. Replying to a reporter on Saturday, Gov. Perdue stated that, “People around the country are watching us and they’re really confused, to have been such a progressive, forward-thinking, economically driven state that invested in education and that stood up for the civil rights of people, including the civil rights marches back in the 50’s and 60’s and 70’s.”

Yes, “Folks are saying what in the world is going on in North Carolina? We look like Mississippi.”

Could you find a better example of the arrogance of the liberal elite? Or could you imagine a worse insult for a supposedly “progressive, forward-thinking, economically driven state” then to say it looked like Mississippi?

Governor Perdue and the Charlotte Observer not only insulted the people of their home state (not to mention, for Gov. Perdue, the people of Mississippi) but they also disgraced themselves with their open hostility.

They also demonstrated their inability to grasp the fact that there is a difference between the civil rights movement and gay activism, that skin color is different than romantic attraction and sexual behavior, and that gays and lesbians are not being kidnapped as slaves or being forced to sit at the back of the bus. To the contrary, they are some of the most prominent and influential people in our society. (For much more on this, see the chapter “Is Gay the New Black?” in “A Queer Thing Happened to America”.)

Even more importantly, these liberal elites seem unable to comprehend that, with good reason, the very clear majority of the people in North Carolina believe that two moms or two dads don’t equal a mom and a dad, that there’s a reason marriage is the union of a man and a woman, and that, on their watch, they don’t want an activist judge redefining marriage and thereby deciding what their kids will be taught in school.

And that’s why, when the final annals of history are written, it will be the liberal elites, not the majority of North Carolinians, who will be found on the wrong side. – Source see also “Why Do the Backwoods Bigots Get to Vote?

North Carolina Governor Perdue: ‘We look like Mississippi’

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant issued a statement in response to the derogatory remarks about his state made by Perdue: “I am certainly disappointed by Gov. Perdue’s statement regarding North Carolina’s ‘looking like Mississippi.’ Apparently, North Carolina’s voters are much more in line with Mississippi’s traditional values on marriage than those of Gov. Perdue.”

That’s right, how dare someone suggest that a man and a woman get married & have kids? How absurd? How foreign? Who would ever dream that children are born from a couple like this? I wonder … is LGBT ‘rights’ (…obviously there are no rights for the non-LGBT crowd if this kind of thing can happen) funded by the population control crowd? Ok, not seriously, but this is how unreal some of the news seems these days.

Full mural, including ‘offensive part’ shown at bottom of post.

The 17-year-Old Pilgrim High School Junior who painted the mural that depicted a husband, wife, and son that was deemed inappropriate by officials said the whole controversy is “ridiculous.”

Liz Bierendy told WPRO’s John DePetro that officials told her “that it may be offensive to some people because it is not how society views a family anymore because some people may not grow up with a mother and the whole marriage type thing may be a religious symbol.” Bierendy noted the school originally approved the sketch of the mural before she painted it.

Bierendy said she was upset when she was told that the mural may be offensive. “I felt bad because I didn’t want to offend anyone. I was scared that maybe it would go out to our homosexual community and I didn’t want them to get in an uprise because I was not trying to preach that’s the right thing to do at all,” Said Bierendy.

The section of the mural featuring the family was ordered painted over by school officials. Bierendy said she was notified prior but she was still “pretty upset.” The Superintendent of Warwick Schools Peter Horoschak has since stepped in and asked that the student be allowed to finish the mural however she sees fit.

Bierendy says she is going to take the weekend to “think about this,” and on Monday she will decide how to finish the mural. “If I was going to change it it would just be him and he would be an artist and he would be painting that part of his life,” she said.

Bierendy herself comes from a single parent family and says she did not mean anything by depicting a family unit as a man, woman, and child. “A family is a family,” she said.

In a statement released by Superintendent Peter Horoschak he said “some of the members of the Pilgrim High School community suggested that the depiction of a young man’s development from boyhood through adulthood as displayed may not represent the life experiences of many of the students at Pilgrim High School.” – Source
