Here are a few interesting tidbits from today’s Proposition 8 and Marriage news.

:::::Additional Lawsuit Filed Against Prop 8

A new lawsuit has been filed claiming that Prop 8 violates the Federal Constitution. Hang in there states-rights. This is not the federal scandal that the plaintiffs are making it out to be.  {Click here to read article}

:::::Alliance Defense Fund Attorneys to Defend Prop 8 and the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act)

The Christian Post reports:

A federal court has granted attorneys with a Christian legal firm a motion to intervene in a lawsuit that challenges Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Southern Division, filed the order granting the motion on Wednesday. Alliance Defense Fund attorneys will intervene on behalf of ProtectMarriage.com, the main proponents of Proposition 8 – California’s constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

“The people of California want marriage to remain as the union between one man and one woman; they made their voice clear last November at the polls,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Brian Raum in a statement released Friday. “Yet this lawsuit begs the court to nullify the voices of more than 7 million California voters, as well as put an end to the federal law on marriage.”

:::::Media Blunders in Covering California’s Prop 8

Six months ago, California voters passed Proposition 8, denying legal recognition to same gender marriages.  Petitions are now being circulated to put the issue back to the voters in June 2010.

Before venturing into this thorny thicket again, the media should realize what a poor job it did in covering the fundraising for Prop 8.

The reporting blunders include gross inaccuracies and one where the media did not recognize a good story right before their eyes.

All the blunders could have been avoided had news organizations more fully understood the campaign finance reporting laws of California and/or been more diligent in examining the online campaign finance records filed with the California Secretary of State.

:::::Character Assassins Gunning for Miss California, Supporters Say

“They’re really going after her,” Focus on the Family President Jim Daley said of Prejean, whose critics have gone so far as to compare her to a Nazi war criminal.

“She’s being attacked for her opinion; she’s getting creamed for just giving her perspective. It’s just another example of the intolerant left….

Stop Harvey Milk Day in CA Public Schools/ SB 572//

milk_penn320Oppose the pro-gay “commemorative exercises” of SB 572 aka Harvey Milk Day

Check out the following info from Beetle Blogger’s Post:

Thanks Beetle!!!!!

Children are already being indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle in government schools, but a new bill in the California Legislature would make things much worse.

SB 572 by homosexual activist state senator Mark Leno of San Francisco, a Democrat, would create an official “gay day” called Harvey Milk Day. It would be pushed on every California government school, affecting children as young as kindergarten.

I don’t get it. Hollywood makes a movie and now all of a sudden some guy gets his own “day” in public school? The gay community has several “days” already don’t they? I’m more concerned with this bill then with researching gay history,  however, it would seem that if gays were so sentimental about Harvery Milk, they would have tried to get him a “day” even before Hollywood thought they could make a mint with that movie. Maybe they did, and I just haven’t heard about it…

Can you even believe this? Seriously folks, we do NOT need an official “gay day.” Don’t the activists try to make every day “gay day” already? They needn’t worry about us forgetting they are out there,  perverting society, robbing children of their innocence, bombarding public schools with their trash, trying to destroy marriages and families, oh, no, we  won’t forget them…they are 24/7 trying to indoctrinate this country with their lack of morals  and values and perverted lifestyle.  Personally, I’m pretty sick of it!

If you can’t afford to send your kids to private school, and if you work and can’t home school them, then you need to get involved in fighting this bill. Use the info below to contact our representatives and let them know this bill’s gotta go!

Attacks on Miss California reveal intolerance of gay-rights activists//

miss-california-gay-marriage-controversy1

[Carrie] Prejean hardly is alone in her conventional view of marriage. Polls show that most Americans share that view and voters in 29 states, including California, have approved state constitutional amendments banning gay marriage. Yet Prejean did something most Americans who oppose gay marriage no longer dare to do: She voiced her beliefs in the public square. And when pressured to recant, she refused.

I haven’t read a ton about the pagent debaucle, but what I do know is that this lady is a class act. She stood up there, in front of our entire country and told everyone what she believes,

“I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”

That took courage and guts and I’m impressed. She probably knew that her no-on-gay-marriage answer would not be popular, she probably even knew that it would cost her the crown (Miss CA is almost always in the finals and has a chance of winning) but she answered the question honestly. And I think it’s great that Carrie Prejean has gotten even more press then the actual winner of the Miss USA pageant. I even watched the very end and I can’t remember who it is. People say there’s no such thing as bad press!

With that mild answer to a beauty-pageant query earlier this month, Miss California Carrie Prejean was catapulted to the center of an international controversy resulting in vicious attacks on her character, intelligence and religious beliefs.

I’m just a blogger and I sometimes get nasty hate messages because of my personal views, that of course I don’t approve to be posted in my blog comments, but this poor girl… a national scandal all because she doesn’t agree with the gay community… No one seems to have launched a national nasty campaign on anyone who believes in gay marriage. Isn’t that interesting????

With the personal assault on Miss CA being lead by blogger Perez Hilton, {click here to read about what a bang-up job Mr. Hilton did as a judge in this contest. I came across this blog post: “This Is What Happens When You Let Bloggers Judge Beauty Contests,” By graneyandthepig. I do not support the picture of a passed out girl in a thong in the blog’s header, but this post  makes some great points and seems to support Miss CA. If you want to get the 411 on Perez’s judging gig, check it out}.

Incensed by Prejean’s failure to endorse his views on gay marriage, Hilton took to the airwaves and Internet to call Prejean a string of unprintable names.

Oh nice. You get to berate and belittle and harass someone just because they don’t agree with you? Since when did the GLBT community get that added to their mile-long Constitutional rights want list? In addition to Hilton, the Miss CA’s barrage of harassers,

ranged from the TV journalists who fretted on air about Prejean’s insensitivity and pageant officials who publicly sided with Hilton to the parade of Hollywood celebrities who denounced Prejean and high-ranking gay British politician Alan Duncan, who called her a “silly [expletive]” and said that if she turns up murdered, “you will know it was me.”

Is this really national news people? Or rather world news, because apparently a British politician wants in on the nastiness too. Real classy huh? I wonder if his constituents are proud that they voted for him?

Prejean did something most Americans who oppose gay marriage no longer dare to do: She voiced her beliefs in the public square. And when pressured to recant, she refused.

I love that part!!!!! How cool is that? What a great example of standing up for your beliefs no matter the cost.

At a time when many politicians and pastors are too intimidated to defend their beliefs about marriage, a beauty queen willing to stand up to a bully is an inspiring sight.

Gays Asking For Special Treatment, Not Equal Rights//

Haven't heard the GLBT's yet? Don't worry they're still screaming...

Haven't heard the GLBT's yet? Don't worry they're still screaming...

What happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave? This so-called greatest country in the world is turning itself into the land of the free-as-long-as-you-are-tolerant-of-the-things-we-choose and the home of the cry babies.

The biggest argument coming from this ever-growing group is that homosexuals do not receive the same rights as heterosexuals. But in reality, they do. A man who professes to be gay has the same right as a straight man: to marry a woman.

Homosexuals are fighting for so-called freedoms, but they already have actual freedoms, the very freedoms listed  in the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, the very same freedoms that every American has, gay or not.

In short, what is happening to America is the downfall of equality and the rise of privilege. Not privilege for everyone, but for those who consider themselves oppressed. The so-called minorities are searching for an exclusive place in society, and the government is handing it over.

So much for equality– because what homosexuals and their agenda filled backers are really fighting for are “special” rights; those different from and above and beyond what anyone else has. Why should we change all of the rules for them?

They lobby for the particular privilege to marry the same sex – an entitlement no person has. It isn’t equal rights these people want – it’s an exclusive allowance they’re searching for.

So this begs the question, do they deserve an exclusive allowance? Translation–do they deserve special treatment just because they don’t like being a minority, not a minority in a  legally “protected class” kind of way, because no one outside of the GLBT community and their supporters is worried about protecting this alleged minority, but minority as in they participate in  activities and live a lifestyle that most people believe  is immoral and unacceptable. GLBT drama isn’t going to win a popularity contest, and Californians have already made that very clear.

Sorry guys…in my opinion, being associated with said immoral sexual activities by your own choice and of your own doing  does not mean that you should get your own lane on the 405 fwy so-to-speak. You have to drive with everyone else who wants to use that freeway and follow the rules that have already been established as the best and safest for all involved.  If you cause a ruckus, or spin your car out of control, you’re going to get run over… like you did on Nov 4th! (Like that analogy? I just came up with it on the fly…lol…)

But gay marriage is just the introduction to the fight. The quest for the exceptional right to unnaturally marry has spawned an entirely new argument: discrimination.

Should Gays Be A Protected Class?// not a chance, read on to find out why…

Do handicapped or elderly workers just volunteer to joing those protected classes? Nope, but gays join their club voluntarliy and then want the government to protect them...

Do handicapped or elderly workers just volunteer to join those protected classes? Nope, but gays join their club voluntarliy and then want the government to protect them... There's a difference

I came across this amazing post by my blogger friend at Comments on the Contemporary. He talks about the facts surrounding a class of people becoming a “protected class,” which can then sue for a violation of their civil rights. He talks about the classes of people that are legitimately a protected class, and how gays are trying to wiggle their way into protected status. Read the post here.

It is apparent that the argument in California over Proposition 8 has jumped over this fundamental issue and made an invalid assumption that a protected class exists without ever defining that class. Class definition is not difficult in the instance of race, or sex (i.e. women vs. men) but has been and will continue to be problematical for national origin and religion. Are we ready to include a class that does not have a definition? Won’t that open the door to almost any possible group or preference labeling themselves and claiming protected class status?

Constant repetition of the mantra of “gay rights” does not automatically create a protected class, unless there is some rational way of defining the class other than by someone claiming membership. To do otherwise, destroys the whole concept of civil rights in America today.

Protected classes seem to have historically been made up of individuals with characteristics that they have no control over. It seems like homosexuality has been drummed up by gays as they are trying to convince America that they should be a protected class because of their immoral choices to have-sex with, cohabitate with and fake-marry people of their same sex.

How does one go about proving they are a member of a class that has no accurate definition and no criteria for membership?

Again, referring to Euripedes, “The slippery slope exists when other people group themselves together and begin to claim protected class status for the most frivolous of claims. ” For example, if a person is the subject to same-sex attraction, but never acts out any of their feelings, is that person entitled to class protection as a “Gay?” What about the commonly argued situation where two people of the same sex live together but are not sexually involved at all. Are they also a member of this protected class of “Gays?”

Calling all college roommates in same-sex-only dorms, or people who don’t believe in living with the opposite sex before marriage. Check this out….they too could potentially also become a protected class, and therefore categorized by government and all of Americans as gay! Ok, folks…see now how ridiculous this gay protected class thing is… Thanks for the info ‘Comments on the Contemporary!

How the Homosexual Agenda Threatens Our Freedoms//

I think we all know who the zombie is.... the GLBT agenda advocates and the government who lets them have their way...

I think we all know who the zombie is.... GLBT agenda advocates and the government who lets them have their way...

The fallout of allowing the country to be taken over by the homosexual agenda is eerie. What follows  in this post is serious, very scary and exactly what the homosexual agenda is trying to do. . . Be Informed!!!! Protect your Freedoms, your Families and your Beliefs.

The gay, liberal and democratic left has tried really hard to convince us that gays are a minority group deserving of special protections. They have also tried really hard to convince us that giving gays said special protections would have zero affect on the rest of us who don’t agree with this giving of special protections, including letting them marry. If you think this agenda doesn’t have an effect on our freedoms, keep reading. It might surprise you how much it is already happening, here and abroad.

Well, as usual, they have twisted the truth, and even outright lied. Check out this list of some results that would follow from granting homosexual marriage or its legal equivalent and making “sexual orientation” a specially protected civil rights category for “hate speech” and “non-discrimination” laws. The GLBT gang is certainly whining enough about getting themselves in a “special” protected category, but do they deserve it….nah……

(1) Go to jail for “hate speech.” If a “Human Rights Commission” finds that you have made public statements that “incites hatred” against homosexual persons, you may go to prison. Ultimately, even ministers of the gospel will not be exempt. [I assume they are referring to global orthodox angelicism since that is where I found the article, but I think that would also apply to those teaching at other churches as well].

How is it that the government could potentially think that  they can dictate what can be taught in Church.?That isn’t exactly the separation of Church and State.

Just three weeks ago in Philadelphia eleven people belonging to a Christian evangelistic group called “Repent America” were arrested for singing hymns and carrying signs (“Homosexuality Is Sin; Christ Can Set You Free”) at a homosexual celebration called “Outfest.” They were charged with “ethnic intimidation” under Pennsylvania’s “hate crime” law (“sexual orientation” and “gender identity” were added to the law this past summer). This, along with a charge of “criminal conspiracy,” and other trumped-up charges, could result in a prison sentence of up to 47 years.

(2) Lose your job for not supporting “coming out” celebrations at work or for “discriminatory” speech outside of the workplace. That’s right, you can even be fired from your job for statements made outside your place of employment. Chris Kempling, a public school teacher and guidance counselor in British Columbia, Canada, was suspended for one month, without pay, for writing allegedly “discriminatory and derogatory statements against homosexuals” to a local newspaper. What kind of terrible statements did Kempling write? Things such as: “Gay people are seriously at risk [of sexually transmitted disease], not because of heterosexual attitudes but because of their sexual behavior”; and “Homosexual relationships are unstable, ‘gay’ sex poses health risks and many religions consider homosexuality immoral.”

I’m pretty sure people don’t need any other reasons to be afraid of loosing their jobs. What happened to free speech?? So they (liberal, left, socialist folks, are, as usual, trying to limit our freedoms and prohibit us from expressing a personal opinion and discussing our beliefs and aversion to homosexuality when we aren’t at work, with out fear of retribution of getting fired, sued or incurring jail time. Are they serious?

San Diego Jury Awards Damages to Firefighters Who Were Sexually Harassed at Gay Pride Parade//

Toronto Gay Pride Parade--looks pretty mild compared to the mess that was San Diego's parade

Toronto Gay Pride Parade--looks pretty mild compared to the mess that was San Diego's parade

Here’s the follow-up report to the post we did on the case of four San Diego firefighters ordered by the lesbian fire chief to participate in a “gay” pride parade in uniform while driving a city fire truck. The figherfighters were sexually harassed and after a trial, were finally awarded damages by an obviously disgusted and fair jury. Stealing info from my friend Euripides again (Thanks!!!), he reported on his blog:

Good news for common sense and California courts. In San Diego, a jury determined that four firefighters were sexually harassed at a gay pride parade and awarded them $34,300 in damages.

The firefighters’ attorney, Charles LiMandri, said during his closing argument that his clients were targets of vulgar gestures and catcalls while being forced to watch barely clothed men and women simulate sex acts and touch themselves and one another.

Justice prevailed. These firefighters deserved every penny they got, and definitely more. It is absolutely unacceptable that this lewd and creepy behavior took place on public streets, utilizing public resources like police and firefighters, and no doubt a massive street-cleaning crew after they were done grossing everyone out and protesting their perceived lack of civil rights.  And furthmore,  just because they’re gay, and they claim to be “oppressed” or whatever, we’re all just supposed to support this offensive and disgusting type of public display? No thanks… not gonna happen! Citizens of San Diego should be outraged that their tax dollars have, either directly or indirectly, gone to support, assist and enable such trashy displays.

Heather Has Three Parents// two lesbian mothers, one gay sperm donor father, and they are all fighting over her…

I'd be crying too if this crazy lot were my parents...

I'd be crying too if this crazy lot were my parents...

I found this shocking, but not-so-shocking, story over at the blog Jennifer Roback Morse. This is for the GLBT activists who think that their distorted versions of “families” are a benefit to society and children…

The tangled web of homosexual parenting has resulted in a Canadian court ruling that means a child could have three or four legally recognised parents. The players in the court case are a lesbian couple, a gay man (who is married to his partner), and the child born to one of the women using the man’s sperm. The man was known to the women and deliberately chosen as the donor. A contract was signed by the three adults before the child, a girl, was born in 2002, setting out his rights as a “co-parent” including regular access as well as full custody if both women were to die. It also included a promise to try for a “three-way” adoption, which was never followed through.

Tycoon Backs Grandparents Fighting Gay Adoption Bid//

‘Allowing two men to adopt children against the wishes of their grandparents who want to care for them is positively wicked.’

And they shouldn’t have to fight. . .however, U.K. Social workers ruled that the grandparents were too old, at 46 and 59, to offer a loving home to their two young grandchildren, so they have allowed two gay men to adopt the children instead. Thankfully, this injustice isn’t acceptable to everyone, so a multi-millionaire has agreed to foot the bill for the grandparents’ legal fees to challenge this outrageous adoption.

With the support of the benefactor and the Catholic Church, the family hope the move will quickly lead to a judicial review of Edinburgh City Council’s decision to remove the four-year-old girl and her five-year-old brother from their family.
The tycoon, who has requested anonymity, was among a group of businessmen considering offering the family financial support after the adoption plans were revealed last week.

His offer has received the ‘moral backing’ of the Catholic Church, which is fundamentally opposed to gay adoptions.

Because of their opposition to the gay adoption and speaking out publicly, the grandparents were threatened with never seeing their grandchildren again. Who does this? Removing children from their blood relatives and giving them to two random gay guys?

The family claim they have been victims of ‘bullying’ social workers and politically-correct manipulation.

The grandparents finally agreed to the adoption after being crippled by legal bills, and promised they would have continued contact with their grandchildren, who’s mother is a recovering heroin addict. These social workers shouldn’t have even bothered with this case. The children had a loving home, were being well cared for and didn’t need to be “put in the system” and put up for adoption.

There were several heterosexual couples on the council’s books willing to offer a loving home – leading to suggestions that the council was operating a politically-correct quota system.

[The grandfather, a farm worker, added: ‘Because of the generosity of a stranger, we might have a chance to put things right, not only for our family but for others who are put in this position.’

It seems like if their mother is “recovering” and they have someone to care for them in the mean while, that the children wouldn’t have even been eligible for adoption. This is definitely a case of liberal, socialist, government agencies trying to set a precedent and take away the rights of children. Let’s hope these grandparents get these kids back safe, and soon.

Homophobia Is Just a Homosexual Propaganda Term// a term they made up

As we have known all along, homophobia is just a propaganda term used by the homosexual activist community to harass those of use who value marriage and traditional family values, and as Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel describes:

is designed to label negatively anyone who holds traditional values about human sexuality and marriage. He believes parents should be in an uproar. “We have here public education once again trying to co-opt the proper role of parents, trying to impose their ideology on children whether or not that happens to be the ideology that parents share,” he points out.

Sarah Arnold, a Wisconson public high school teacher is apparently so concerned with this made up term, that she created a program for her students entitled, “Exposing Hidden Homophobia. ” She heard an “anti-gay undertone” in her students conversations and took it upon herself to educate her English students on the issue. Arnold claims that although the student body is mostly white, there are “unacknowledged” demographics at her school. So she decided to  address these hidden demographics, i.e. the GLBT students (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered) and pass it off as an English lesson.

The program Arnold developed included “in-depth exploration of depictions” of homosexuality in mass media; several homosexual-themed films, documentaries, books and novels; internet research on “the nature of homophobia”; and a “homophobia questionnaire” coupled with a “heterosexual questionnaire” designed to take questions “commonly asked of homosexuals and ask them of heterosexuals” – e.g., “When did you decide to become heterosexual?'”

Who asks a child that? And yes, for those of you who might not realize it, high school students are still children. The source material that this teacher has exposed these children to is and outrage. When students were reluctant and parents “balked,” (as well they should), especially Christian parents, Arnold defended her homophobia program by arguing,

that the project supported “higher-order thinking skills” because students were asked to perform such tasks as assembling and presenting portfolios of their research into homosexual culture and media.

I don’t know if this lady just got out of college or what, but I think that that her homosexual promo program is not the only way, or even an acceptable or necessary way, to teach “higher-order thinking skills” to students. Arnold has since attracted outside interest in her “homophobia” program, and she has thus made her resources and lesson plans available for other public school teachers to use so they can indoctrinate their own students with hyped homophobia propaganda. She also includes with her lesson plans,  shortened versions of her “Hidden Homophobia Unit,” which you can read here.

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute (IFI) said she was “speechless” when she learned of the curriculum.

Matt Barber  says the program is really intended to indoctrinate children into thinking that homosexual behavior is okay. “The term ‘homophobia’ is a made-up term, made up by homosexual activists, that has no scientific value, no clinical value whatsoever,” he contends. “It’s merely a propaganda term.”

“Wisconsin public schools are permitting radical ideologues to use public money to promote their subversive, unproven moral conclusions and political goals about homosexuality,” said Higgins in an IFI article.  “These propagandists, who should be teaching history or literature or writing, are instead pursuing their illegitimate goals of transforming the views of other people’s children on the contentious issue of homosexuality.”

“Arnold, like countless other English teachers, bases her text selections on whether the ideas conform to and advance her socio-political goals and her particular moral convictions,” said Higgins.  “And she’s doing this with public money.”

Wow… with all of the recent financial shortages in public schools, I am quite sure that schools can find better and more productive ways to spend the little moeny they do have. Sarah Arnold likely isn’t the only public school teacher taking leeway with her lesson plans to indoctrinate your children with their personal ideologies. Have you discussed curriculum with your child’s teachers? Do you know what your children are reading, watching and being exposed to by these radical liberals?
