Stop Thought Crimes Laws

A message from Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council:

"The liberal majority in Congress is now working to pass so-called "hate crimes" legislation. Such thought crimes laws represent a dangerous threat to your religious freedom.
Please visit Family Research Council's new website dedicated exclusively to this issue, www.stopthoughtcrimeslaws.com. You'll learn what you can do to stop homosexual activists and liberal Congressmen from further eroding religious liberty in America--especially by signing our Public Declaration of Opposition to Thought Crimes Laws."
Thank you,
Tony Perkins

Indoctrinating our Youths

Suppose your son came home from school one day with a pamphlet — given to him by the school. Suppose it told your son:
  • Men who call themselves gay are sexually attracted to and fall in love with other men. Their sexual feelings toward men are normal and natural for them. These feelings emerge when they are boys and the feelings continue into adulthood. . . “I don’t remember exactly when I first knew I was gay, but I do remember that the thought of sex with men always excited me.”
  • “I had to reject a lot of negative heterosexual and religious programming that made me feel lousy about myself as a gay person. I began to like myself by meeting other gay people and going to a gay support group.”
  • “But it is crucial to be honest with yourself. Just as self-denial costs you, coming out pays off. Most kids who accept their sexuality say they feel calmer, happier and more confident.”

This was given out to students at Newton North High School in December, during an all-day “Transgender Bisexual Gay Lesbian Awareness Day” event (which the school called “ToBeGLAD Day”). By order of the principal, parents were not allowed to attend. The pamphlet also lists places kids can go to meet homosexuals.

And here’s another one that was given out that day. This slick booklet, "Youth Connections" is from [National Youth Advocacy Coalition, NYAC,] a national homosexual group targeting kids.
For a more detailed report go to Americans for Truth (March 14th report)and MassResistance (March 15th report) and download the phamphlets to read more about what our kids are being indoctrinated with under the school bell and with YOUR tax dollars.

The District "Made a Mistake"

Concerned Women for America is blasting an Illinois high school for urging students not to tell their parents about its mandatory homosexual indoctrination program. Deerfield High School in Chicago has a class called "Freshman Advisory," in which ninth-graders are required to attend a panel discussion led by the Gay-Straight Alliance Network. The panel features homosexual upperclassmen telling students about their sexual experiences.

Listen HERE for a report from Americans for Truth on this story.
Lisa Black from the Chicago Tribune reports with a more open-minded point of view on this story. Click HERE for her story.
I am a little torn on what is fact here. First the school district has the students sign a confidentiality agreement saying they would not tell anyone about the discussions the upperclassmen are having with the freshman, but parents have the right to pull their children out of the classroom if homosexuality is being discussed.
I have included Deerfield High Schools Process for Excusing Students from Instructional Activities.
My question is why would a school district have students sign a confidentiality form but yet they can be pulled out of class if parents disagree with the discussions on sexual orientation? Something is not balancing out here.
It sounds like another David Parker story to me. I will keep you updated.

As Allie Martin reports on One News Now, the American Family Association of Indiana (AFA of Indiana) has delivered thousands of petitions calling for a vote on a Marriage Protection Amendment. More than 4,200 petition signatures have been delivered to the office of Indiana House Speaker Patrick Bauer.

I am sure these petition signers will see their names posted and then productive "dialog"(harassment/threatening phone calls,ect) will take place. ...Give me a break.

'Hate Crime' Bill Defeated in Indiana

As reported by Allie Martin of One News Now.com, public pressure from pro-family activists is being credited with killing HB 1459, a proposed "hate crimes" bill in the Indiana Legislature.

'Hate Crime' Bill HR 254 Expected to Pass

As reported by Jim Brown from OneNewsNow.com HR 254, the Hate Crime bill now going through congress, and in which I reported on in an earlier post, is expected to pass and be put on President Bush's desk for approval.
Click on the One News Now icon above to read the full story.
I only have one question concerning this issue: Why do we need to have special protections for a sub-group of people, such as homosexuals? Why can't we provide special protections via legislation for overweight people or for black people or for kids in school or people at a place of employment who get picked on because they are considered "nerds"?
Like I asked in my earlier post regarding HR 254, why can't the tolerance/diversity training/special protections agenda be under an umbrella involving a plethora of 'different' people such as mentioned above? This would be fair and balanced and would not result in trying to accomplish an agenda, such as the homosexual community is trying to do with their attempts to eviscerate marriage and family.
