"Sexual Indoctrination Bills" Fall Short of Approval

Pro-family groups in California and across the United States are celebrating Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Thursday veto of two pro-homosexual bills. The bills were two of three pieces of legislation regarded by pro-family leaders as "sexual indoctrination bills," which would have, among other things, mandated pro-homosexual policy and curriculum changes in the state's schools. Read the full story HERE. Read full contents of bills HERE.
The governor also vetoed a bill that would of legalized same-sex "marriages" in California. Read the full story HERE.
As I reported earlier on this blog, it was uncertain how Governor Schwarzenegger was going to react to the school bills and I was almost certain gay "marriage" was going to be legal in California. But low and behold THE PEOPLE SPOKE and the legislature LISTENED. Interesting how democracy works when state officials listen to the people they REPRESENT.
Now, we just have got to get Beacon Hill in Massachusetts to LISTEN to the people, all 170,000 of those who signed the traditional marriage petition last fall. Our campaign is making some awesome headway in the fight to protect traditional marriage and I will keep you all updated about the constitutional convention on November 9th.
Rumors have circulated that House Speaker Sal DiMasi is planning to postpone or disrupt the Constitutional Convention once again, most notably with efforts to deny a quorum by encouraging legislators to be absent and shirk their constitutional duties. I am so glad the MA legislature is voted in BY THE PEOPLE but does not REPRESENT the people.
Get in touch with your State Representative and State Senator and tell them that they must attend the Constitutional Convention on November 9th. Tell them that they must vote and that you will be watching what they do and don't do!

LET THE PEOPLE VOTE!!

Wal-Mart Sponsors Diversity Week, Includes How To Defeat A Constitutional Ban On Homosexual Marriage

Wal-Mart has given its full endorsement to the homosexual agenda and homosexual marriage. Boise State University in Boise, Idaho, will observe LGBT Diversity Week October 9–13. One of the sponsors for the Diversity Week is Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart is joining the Pleasure Boutique (an adult bookstore which bills itself as "Idaho's largest selection of adult movies and DVDs and largest adult toy selection in Idaho") and other groups in sponsoring the week. Diversity Week is a week of celebrating homosexuality and promoting the homosexual agenda and homosexual marriage.
Among the events being sponsored by Wal-Mart is Idaho Votes No Campaign Update and Information Workshop. Voters in Idaho will be voting on a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage in November. This Wal-Mart sponsored event will inform voters how to oppose the amendment and how to get others to do so. Wal-Mart is putting their money behind the effort to legalize homosexual marriage.
Other events being sponsored by Wal-Mart: Gay History of Idaho, Diversity in the Workplace, Women's/Lesbian Issues, Hate Based Crimes, Heterosexism, Homosexuality and Disabilities, LGBT Youth in Trouble, MCC-Faith and LGBT, and a youth dance for those age 24 and under.
We earlier reported on Wal-Mart throwing their clout and cash behind the homosexual marriage effort.
I just want one question answered: Why is Wal-Mart trying to just focus on a consumer market that engages in an alternative lifestyle? What is the purpose of having this small subgroup of people, who make up less than 3% of the population, as the target audience? Does Wal-Mart realize that 86% of the American population are Christian/Catholic? ...is this smart advertising?

Where Are The Children's Rights In Same-Sex Marriages?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Louis DeSerres, co-founder of Preserve Marriage - Protect Children's Rights, addressed the harm to children's rights resulting from same-sex marriage at the What’s The Harm? How Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage Will Harm Society, Families, Adults, Children and Marriage symposium held at Brigham Young University Law School.

The symposium, jointly sponsored by The Marriage and Family Law Project at Brigham University Law School and The Marriage Law Project at the Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law, was held on September 15-16, 2006.
Louis DeSerres asked if there is a more natural and self evident birth right for a child than to have a mother and a father. More specifically, while nature creates every child with two biological parents, same-sex marriage leads to the creation of fatherless and motherless children, taking away one of the child's natural parents.
Adult same-sex couples seeking the right to marry have relied on constitutional equality arguments in their court challenges. It is noteworthy that not a single child has been represented in any of these court challenges to defend his right to a father and a mother, a right recognized in the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Furthermore, when children are discussed, the issue is relegated to family law, as if children do not enjoy the constitutional protection that adults enjoy. In time, the advantages gained by adults have started to seep into family law and children's rights and best interests are being further marginalized.
Man-woman marriage provides the child with many benefits. Louis DeSerres listed 14 such benefits. These are lost with same-sex marriage.
Can this harm be undone? Unfortunately, the harm is permanent as no legal authority can bring back the missing biological parent of a child born from an anonymous sperm donor or a surrogate mother. Only prevention can protect children's rights to a father and a mother.
Commenting on the "inevitability" of same-sex marriage, he cited the decision by France to reject same-sex marriage because it violates children's rights. Furthermore, the decision by the people in 20 U.S. states out of 20 to constitutionally reaffirm marriage as between one man and one woman with an average 70% of the population does not constitute a trend towards same-sex marriage. Recent court cases in the U.S. have also strengthened the man-woman nature of marriage, rationally based on the needs of children.
There are thus two models to address same-sex marriage. Either favor adults at the expense of children, like Canada(www.preservemarriage.ca/docs/Marriage_Canada_children_forgotten.pdf), Massachusetts and a few other countries have done, or rightfully place the rights and best interests of children ahead of those of adults as France has chosen (www.preservemarriage.ca/docs/France-summary.pdf).
Earlier this year, Mr. DeSerres testified at the Massachusetts Judiciary Commission hearings on the Marriage Amendment. (see www.voteonmarriage.org/leghearing.shtml#louis).

Government Run Indoctrination Camps (A.K.A. Public Schools) At Their Best!

A bill, HR 5295, approved by the U.S. House on Tuesday, September 19th, 2006 would require school districts around the country to establish policies making it easier for teachers and school officials to conduct wide scale searches of students. These searches could take the form of pat-downs, bag searches, or strip searches depending on how administrators interpret the law. Read the full story HERE.

Do to the fact that Representative Geoff Davis (R-KY 4th) is in a close race with his opponent Nick Clooney this year he thinks it is O.K. to have teachers and school officials strip search our children when "acting on any reasonable suspicion based on professional experience and judgment, of any minor student on the grounds of any public school." Click HERE for the contents of bill HR 5295: Student and Teacher Safety Act of 2006.
According to Rep. Davis this bill suggests "he's getting things done in Washington?". Please contact Rep. Davis and tell him to discontinue his sponsorship of HR 5295 as it DOES "excessively intrude" on any students "person" WITHOUT parental permission.
Seems like America has another reason to send their children to private schools.

Never Forget

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingAs we all try and mourn in our own ways the tragedies of September 11th, 2001 we must all come to some sort of closure and move on in life without forgetting this day.

I for one spent my time today taking part in the moments of silence at 8:46am and 9:03am when the first and second towers were hit respectively. WRKO 680 am Boston's Talk Station had an excellent commemorative special of 9/11 as it pinpointed on the memories of that day. I for one found myself breaking down during those moments of silence as I reflected on all of the lives lost and the families destroyed. I spent the weekend recording a documentary of September 11th and wanted to burn some copies and hand them out at work today, but did not get a chance to do so. I felt obligated to share with others this historical day in history and remember what had occurred five years ago as 2,973 innocent civilian lives were gone in about two hours time.
As I was thumbing through the newspapers to read about the fifth anniversary I came across an article in the Boston Herald that put some sort of closure to those who lost their lives and who did not get the respected burial they deserved.
The article by Michele McPhee focused on the events of the day but more importantly told of how ironworkers found two intersecting beams that formed a cross. This cross symbolized the tomb stone of those who perished that day at Ground Zero. I found this heart warming and new then that the deceased were safe with God and are no longer suffering.
Although we can vividly remember what we were doing and feeling on September 11th, 2001 we must all remember that day and mainly focus on the fact that we will see our loved ones again. That thought alone brings a smile to my tear ridden face as we all struggle to lick our wounds from such a tragic day.
I leave you with a poem that I came across and wish to share with you:
Meet Me In The Stairwell

By Stacey Randall
You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001. Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say "Good-Bye." I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK...I am ready to go."

I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help. "I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!" I said. "Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.

"I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them.

I was in Texas, Kansas, and London. I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; "Come to Me... this way... take my hand." Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time would you have reached for Me?

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready to go."

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

God

Pro-Family Crowd Urges Calif. Governor Against Signing Pro-Homosexual Bills

Pro-family advocates in California are concerned that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will force the state's children to be subjected to sexual indoctrination in public schools.

On Tuesday, the pro-family group Campaign for Children and Families (CCF) held a protest on the steps of the State Capitol in Sacramento. Rally speakers expressed frustration over Schwarzenegger's August 28 signing of SB 1441, a bill forcing religious colleges to promote homosexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality if they accept students receiving state financial assistance.
However, the focus of the protest was to encourage the governor to veto three bills that pro-family forces believe will, in effect, turn California public schools into centers for the pro-homosexual sexual indoctrination of children. Randy Thomasson, president of CCF, says Schwarzenegger needs to hear from concerned citizens, not just in California but across the United States.
"As California goes, so goes the nation," Thomasson asserts. "If these bills are signed into law, other state legislators will try to introduce the same legislation in other states," he says.
The three pieces of legislation that were the focus of the protest rally -- AB 606, AB 1056, and SB 1437 -- have parents and grandparents "very concerned," Thomasson explains. That is because these bills push transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality on children without their parent or guardian's permission, he says. The Governor has already vetoed SB 1437 yesterday (Wednesday, September 6th, 2006) and here is the wording of this bill.
Meanwhile, if enacted, AB 1056 would spend a quarter million of taxpayer dollars to turn ten of the state's schools, including kindergarten, into "sexual indoctrination centers," a CCF news release notes, and would thus "betray the academic purpose of education."
Schwarzenegger has until the end of September to veto or sign the bills. Thomasson believes the enactment of any of these pieces of legislation in California would adversely impact the entire nation. And, he points out, it is not only parents and grandparents who need to be concerned because everyone in society would be affected.
"There are only two sides," the CCF spokesman contends. "There’s a side of supporting these bills or the side of opposing these bills; we cannot shudder and run for the covers or run for the hills and try to emotionally insulate ourselves and say it doesn’t touch me," he says.
Like I have asked many a time on this site: What is the purpose in teaching our children about sexual orientations? Do not give me answers of 'to teach tolerance and diversity' because that is left up to the values of the household the child comes from not from the values of the public schools.

Wal-Mart asks for, and receives, permission to join homosexual marriage group

Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world, has asked for and received permission to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. The NGLCC is a leading promoter of homosexual marriage.

Read "Wal-Mart Partners With Gay and Lesbian Group"
Although Wal-Mart has never excluded homosexuals from being employees, customers, or suppliers, the company wanted to be more closely identified with promoting the homosexual agenda. Wal-Mart is now a "corporate member" of the NGLCC, putting their approval on the NGLCC's efforts to abolish the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A Wal-Mart vice president will serve as an advisor to the NGLCC, helping them promote homosexual marriage.
Wal-Mart agreed to give $25,000 to the NGLCC and to pay for two conferences scheduled by NGLCC. Also, Wal-Mart will give homosexual-owned businesses special treatment when making purchases. Companies not owned by homosexuals will be moved down the list.
NGLCC called Wal-Mart's action "part of the company's ongoing commitment to advancing diversity (homosexuality) among all of its associate, supplier and customer bases."
Wal-Mart is offering the same kind of support for homosexual marriage which Ford Motor Company has been giving to homosexual groups for years.
