170,000 Signatures. Who Intimidated Us?

Massachusetts collected over 170,000 signatures for its Marriage Protection Amendment regardless of how Know Thy Neighbor intimidated and harassed the voters. 170,000: the largest in MA history for a citizen initiated petition. Keep it up because it means more voters are going to revolt against those who are against democracy. Thanks for the extra stimulus.

There is Nothing Gay about Homosexuality

FORT LAUDERDALE , Fla. - Mayor Jim Naugle portrayed city park restrooms as popular gay sex spots, opposed a plan to house a gay book collection in a public library, and insists on using the word "homosexual" because many of them "aren't gay, they are unhappy."

Read full Story HERE.
Senator Larry Craig can attempt to solicate sex in a public bathroom, so why can't other homosexuals in Florida have the same chances?
This issue is not about Mayor Naugle being a homophobe, it is about keeping Fort Lauderdale safe for everyone, including other homosexuals, heterosexuals, bisexuals, transgenders,ect who would NOT engage in sexual acts in a public place.
Mayor Naugle just wants to simply try and combat illegal and unsafe activity such as sexual activity in a public restroom. Nothing more, nothing less. Where is the homophobia in a mayor who wants to make his streets safe for everyone? I do not get it.
"If it were done by heterosexuals or bisexuals or homosexuals, it really wouldn't make any difference" Mayor Naugle points out.
Just because the mayor wanted to have public bathrooms whose doors automatically unlock after a short time, such that there would be a discouragement of sexual activity, "gay" rights advocates immediately took action against the proposal. Why did the "gay" rights advocates think that Mayor Naugle was targeting the homosexuals by having these doors put in place? What about the heterosexual teenage boy and girl who want to "do it" in the bathrooms? They are being targeted as well. Homosexuals, heterosexuals, bisexuals, ect are ALL being targeted. So, just like how we ALL need to follow the rules for marriage, in which all of the above can do only if it is not with a person of the same gender, ALL of those who wish to engage in sexual activity in a public bathroom in Fort Lauderdale, FL can not under the proposed bathroom door plan. No one is being discriminated here. We ALL have to follow the rules regardless of our sexual orientation.
If I was the mayor of Fort Lauderdale, I would encourage all sexual orientations to visit the area as long as no illegal sexual solicitation was going to be conducted by ANYONE of ANY sexual preferance.
This story would not be a story if Mayor Naugle said he did not want heterosexual prostitution in his town, but since homosexual behaviors were mentioned by the mayor, a huge stink errupted.
I smell an agenda.

Black Robe Ruling

A Polk County, Iowa judge on Thursday struck down Iowa's law banning gay "marriage".

The ruling by Judge Robert Hanson concluded that the state's prohibition on same-sex "marriage" is unconstitutional and he ordered the Polk County recorder to issue marriage licenses to six gay couples.

Here we go again, judicial fiat at its best!!
When are people going to wake up and realize that the judicial system does NOT make law, but applies it. The people spoke at the ballot box in Iowa to ban same-sex "marriages", so what is the problem?
Don't give me this highly refutable "civil-rights" jargon, because there is no weight to that argument as I have stated time and time again.
House Minority Leader Christopher Rants, R-Sioux City, said the judge's ruling only illustrates the need for a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
Plain and simple.
Des Moines lawyer Dennis Johnson said the Defense of Marriage Act, which the Legislature passed in 1998, contradicts previous court rulings regarding civil rights and should be struck down.
What are these other civil rights court rulings and do they relate to racism or to sexual orientation? They probably relate to another failed juxtaposition of racism and sexual orientation that so many try to justify. And where were these contradictive court rulings when the Legislature passed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1998???????
Sick and tired yet??

The Oppressed Become Oppressors

Melissa Walker of DES MOINES REGISTER.COM reports that an agreement that was supposed to end a five-year fight between the Des Moines YMCA and a lesbian couple who wanted a family membership only intensified the debate on Monday, August 6, 2007.

Greater Des Moines YMCA officials had agreed to settle a human rights complaint and expand their definition of "family" to include M and Sandra Patton-Imani, a Des Moines lesbian couple joined in a civil union in Vermont in 2000. But the couple refused to sign the document when they found out it contained a confidentiality clause.
Read full story HERE.
I looked at the website for the YMCA of Greater Des Moines, Iowa and read their mission statement which is stated as follows:
"The YMCA mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all."
Click HERE to view the website.
Now, with a non-profit organization having a mission statement such as this really indicates that this whole case is about demonizing the Christian faith. This case would fall under the "Portray Gays as Victims, Not Aggressive Challengers" of the homosexual agenda. This homosexual agenda, as I have indicated in many posts in the past, was devised by homosexual activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen. This agenda was published in 1987 in an article titled "The Overhauling of Straight America" and in the book "After the Ball" in 1989.
As explained in "The Homosexual Agenda" by Alan Sears and Craig Osten:
This agenda point is a direct play to most Americans' basic sense of fairness and liberal guilt about anyone who claims to have been oppressed. Therefore, despite demographic statistics to the contrary, homosexual activists have skillfully played the media like a drum to portray themselves as a victimized class in need of special protections.
In a November 26th, 2002 article in the Washington Times, Ellen Sorokin reports of a homosexual teenager who killed a Catholic women who was trying to persuade him to change his sexual orientation. The woman, Mary Stachowicz, was found strangled and then was placed in a crawl space under a floor. Yet there was no "hue and cry" over this "hate crime" and it was barely reported in the national press.
Peter LaBarbera, who was interviewed in the article, had this to say about the case:
"If a gay man had been murdered for trying to convince someone to be gay, it would be a national news story and be deemed a hate crime. But when a gay man murders a woman who tried to convince him to change, the media spike(s) the story."
It's an amazing thing to watch a group that said they were oppressed become oppressors.

“You can’t play for two teams”

It seems that the Knights of Columbus (K of C) are under fire for having 16 pro-homosexual "marriage" politicians in their organization with no plans on the horizon to expel any of them.
Read full story HERE in the Boston Herald.

This pro-gay "marriage" stance by the 16 Bay State lawmakers has been an issue since they all voted to defeat the Marriage Protection Amendment back on June 14th during the Constitutional Convention at the State House. Read story HERE regarding past concerns of the 16 lawmakers breaking their Knights of Columbus Catholic vows.

The issue of these 16 K of C members disenvowing their Catholic faiths in order to cave into special interest groups has also been an issue in other parts of the state. My friend Jake has had the following e-mail exchange with Tim S., who is the head of the 4th Degree K of C, and Tom, who is the District Deputy of the K of C in the North Shore region:

Jake:

Tom,

While I here you, and think none too kind of this mission statement stuff, I do think it is would be nice for members to discuss WHY we, as an organization are different from the Kiwanis, Masons, Jaycees, Women of Today, the John Birch Society, Africans for Peace, Democratic Party, Republican Assembly, etc. It does hit me as rather strange why anyone would join a Catholic organization, (such as the K of C) and then take actions that put political party above Christianity. Think Reg Tardiff supporting Barbara 'kill-them-in-the-womb' at Catholic hospitals L'Itallien for instance (vote a couple of years back to force Catholic hospitals to peform abortions).

Tom:

Worthy Brothers,

It is worthy for our Deputy Grand Knight to develop a local mission statement for our council, but it is not necessary. The mission statement, and the only mission statement, is on the Supreme Website telling the world who the Knights of Columbus is and what they stand for. We as a local council should only focus on developing our programs and how they help our church, community and membership. If we want to spread our own personal feelings on world topics, please do not send it through the K of C distribution lists. If you have concerns with the State and Supreme, please forward all correspondents to me and I will request a response!

Always in His Name,

Tom (Your Worthy District Deputy)

P.S. What is for supper on Wednesday???

Scia commenting on above e-mail exchange:

"We as a local council should only focus on developing our programs and how they help our church, community and membership."

What?????!!!!!! Doesn't traditional marriage, which is a sacred institution granted to Christians as a Divine right a "program" that helps our church and community? WHAT!!!!!! Are you for real Tom??? What "45 minute" Catholocism group do you belong to?

Out of all of the e-mail exchanges that I have read, I love Tom's ending post-script: What is for supper on Wednesday??? As if Wednesday's dinner is MORE important than taking a stance for scripture. Pathetic!!!!
As my friend Jake put it so perfectly when he said to me:
"These folks, I'm afraid, think the KoC is about Tootsie Roll drives, and blood drives and scholarships and occassional barbeques...."

Amen brother.

Tim S. responded:
However, Korten reaffirmed that "unless or until [the Church] defines this individual otherwise, our rules give us no foundation to expel anyone."

Until the bishops do something, don't expect the KofC to do anything. They will not expel someone who goes against the Church's teachings if the bishops won't. We will not stand in defiance of our priests and bishops. To boot these guys out, would be to say that we know better than the hierarchy, and as a Catholic Men's organization, we will never do that. If you have a problem, take it up with Sean Cardinal O'Malley.

Ending the e-mail dialog with a comment from a Christopher C. R. concerning the mission statement of the KofC:
"I'm confused....By definition of the Knights of Columbus...Is that not our "MISSION STATEMENT"... Why would we want to attempt to change that? Is there something wrong with what we are supposed to stand for that needs further definition?"
My words exactly Chris, my words exactly!!
I guess this issue is "one-up" for the "tossed salad version" of scripture in the world of the K of C.
My question: When are we going to have real MEN stand up for God and his true way of life?
