The Thanksgiving Family Forum, a discussion of what is known in modern culture as “social issues” by the GOP presidential candidates. It was held yesterday at the First Federated Church, Des Moines, Iowa. It was moderated by Frank Luntz. Most of the GOP candidates were there to participate in this forum that was very different than all the conventional debates we’ve seen so far, and they talked about what George Washington called the “indispensable supports” of our political prosperity. The issues discussed here make this forum quite likely the most important one you can view leading up to the 2012 election.
Homosexual activists in Iowa who want to force a Christian businesswoman to affirm their counterfeiting of marriage. Two lesbians want to call their union “marriage” and insist that a Christian baker make a wedding cake for them. This is another clear illustration that the homosexual agenda is not about tolerance, but about forcing people and society in general to affirm their unhealthy and immoral sexual behaviors.
We are not surprised at any fallacious rhetoric that emanates from the Southern Poverty Law Center. They have degenerated into nothing more than a radical leftist mouthpiece against Christian values, conservative principles and basically all members of center-rightAmerica, especially those of us who identify with the patriotic Tea Party movement. We know from where the real hatred and violence comes, and it is not from Christians telling the truth about homosexuality.
Few things are as overrated as doing whatever you feel like. There is an old analogy that sex is like fire: powerful and beneficial in the right place, but incredibly harmful everywhere else. The cost of irresponsible sex is incredibly high, both in material and intangible ways, and one doesn’t have to look around very hard to see this.
Try to imagine, if you will, a liberal presidential candidate trying to pass himself off as a Republican. Now imagine this “Republican” on truth serum on a television talk show, being asked about his record. If this “Republican” was asked about his support for the homosexual agenda in his home state, this is what it might look like…
Traditional marriage (specifically, Christian marriage) has through the centuries served as a critical civilizing force in society. It has been, quite literally, the glue that holds communities and peoples together. A society that spurns the traditional obligations of marriage is certain to reap a bleak harvest.
When you exchange wedding vows with your spouse, you probably have serious commitments to stand by each other in mind, in sickness and in health. But when the state intervenes, sometimes you don’t get what you expect. Everyone, but especially those who love their spouses, family and friends, needs to take Sara & Gary Harvey’s plight quite seriously. Don’t think it couldn’t happen to you. Think instead… how will you feel when it does?

The great folks at the Media Research Center have put together a debate on the issues between Senator Barack Obama and President Barack Obama. These two individuals have striking differences on how they want to handle issues such as listening to the American people, enforcing the law including DOMA, forcing Americans to buy products they don’t want, and the use of the military.
A number of times before I’ve discussed why Mitt “RomneyCare” Romney is nothing but another liberal who has an “R” after his name, and is not a real Republican. One of those reasons is the fact that he allowed homosexual activists to implement the counterfeiting of marriage in his state. In fact, he did more than simply stand aside and allow marriage to be undermined–he facilitated it. Here are 24 ways in which he did it.

As you likely know, in the world of the liberal mind, many things are completely backward and upside-down. To the liberal mind, truth is a lie, and lies are the truth; good is evil, and evil is good; those who speak the truth are speaking hate, and those who speak hatred are practicing “tolerance.” I often wonder if they see their blatant disconnect from reality, and I’m certain that at some level—however deeply it may be buried in their consciences—they do. So it is with the members of the radical homosexual movement.
Often times the lunacy of homosexual “marriage” is peddled with assurances to the gullible that people who recognize this is an immoral perversion of marriage will not be forced to choose between their Christian convictions and their jobs. That usually lasts about as long as it takes the ink to dry on such decisions. We see that now as the Nassau County, New York DA wants to criminally prosecute clerks who, because of their Christian convictions, will not take part in allowing homosexuals to counterfeit marriage.

There are a number of compelling reasons why homosexual behavior and the proposition of allowing homosexuals to counterfeit marriage should never be accepted as legitimate. These reasons include the aberrant nature of the behavior, the fact that it is contrary to scientific and biological principles, it is extremely unhealthy, it is changeable, and it relies on a suspension of common sense to have any hope of credibility. Another important reason is that monogamy–a key element in any marriage–is almost nonexistent in the homosexual community.
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) blog says the Obama Administration has once again declared its hostility toward marriage and sexual morality by claiming that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), passed by congress and signed into law by Democrat President Bill Clinton, was motivated by “animus” toward homosexuals. As usual, the Marxist social engineers who inhabit the White House at the moment have the situation exactly reversed.
The New York Magazine headline reads: “You Can Thank a Few Rich Libertarians for Gay Marriage.” The story is that a $1-million contribution by several rich Republican hedge fund operators, ” inclined to see the issue as one of personal freedom, consistent with their libertarian views,” was key to legalization of same sex marriage in New York. But this counterfeiting of marriage does not expand freedom but rather seeks to redefine a fundamental truth. It’s been said that when words lose their meaning, people lose their liberty. It’s something all of us, even wealthy libertarians, should keep in mind.
The Family Research Council (FRC) praised the U.S. House of Representatives today for overwhelmingly approving U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx’s (R-NC) amendment to the 2012 defense appropriations bill that would prohibit using Pentagon funds in contradiction of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman for all federal purposes.
As Christians, we must reclaim and re-humanize the topic of sex by giving our young people a comprehensive theology of sex that is grounded in the gift of intimacy and relationship, rather than a self-satisfying animalistic act. We must move beyond our prudishness that simply teaches teens what not to do and celebrate the gift of sex as God intended it to be. Until we start teaching the superiority of sex as defined by God, this generation will likely continue to exchange the truth of God for the lie.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), the GOP candidate for president who best exemplifies Republican values, appeared on Fox News Sunday yesterday. She answered some of the charges against her made by her detractors, and made a strong case for the conservative values that make the Republican Party distinct from its counterpart. Bachmann is clearly the best equipped and most dedicated candidate to restore America to the roots that made her great, and restore us to prosperity.
We typically don’t expect a whole lot from professional athletes, at least in the arena of making a meaningful difference in the health and stability of society. But Super Bowl champion David Tyree has moved beyond a troubled youth and a football career to take a bold stand against the worst of pop culture rot and for what is right.
Leftist social engineers have been trying for several decades now to get us to believe that there is no difference between men and women, that each is interchangeable…and often that men are optional or disposable. Now the “professionals” are starting to figure out what those know-nothing primitives who lived prior to the 1950s knew all along: parents–including fathers–play a critical role in the healthy development of children.
Results from what is likely the most extensive national research survey of its kind show that 62 percent of Americans believe that “marriage should be defined only as a union between one man and one woman.” Fifty-three percent of Americans strongly agreed. The survey results mirror American voter behavior when faced with the decision to either affirm marriage in their state constitutions or leave it open to legal challenges or other attacks.
The NBA is partnering with homosexual activists to promote this dangerous behavior among teens. Some businesses like Old Navy are also committed to promoting homosexual behavior to impressionable young people through their clothing lines. These groups and businesses often employ the same bullying tactics they claim to oppose.
