Stand against the Straight-o-phobes

We Must Fight Back NOW!
"Constitution Restoration Act" NOW
"Haven't you read," he replied, "that at the beginning the Creator 'made them male and female,' and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." Matthew 19:4-6
URGENT: The Washington Blade – "America's Leading Gay News Source" as it calls itself – has confirmed that the gay marriage fight will not stop in California or the dozen or so other Leftwing states turning a blind-eye to God's law.
The notorious gay lobbyists at the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which like its entire faction of godless progressives has falsely framed their advocacy of immorality as an ostensible crusade for "human rights," have PLEDGED to bring 'homosexual marriage' to ALL 50 states within five years.
"It will take legislative work, it will take ballot work, it will take Congress and it will ultimately take the federal courts again to bring full equality to every single corner of this country," HRC President Chad Griffin told The Blade. "But there is no ground we will leave unturned. Today we will fight aggressively on all fronts in all states."
And they are already in action – planning MORE lawsuits against the American people and American decency.
States first on the chopping block: Arizona, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Ohio, Nevada, Hawaii, Michigan, Illinois, New Jersey and New Mexico.
Ironically, Francis J. Beckwith; over at The Catholic Thingpointed out that like "gay marriage," CATHOLIC marriage is technically NOT SANCTIONED BY THE STATE.
She writes:
According to the, Catechism, a Catholic marriage consists of five elements: consent, conjugality, indissolubility, exclusivity, and openness to children. There is no jurisdiction that confers legal recognition to a marriage in which these five elements are necessaryconditions.
Could you imagine the fight to have these five elements codified in ALL 50 states? ANY of the 50 states?
Whatever happened to the principle of equality under the law? It has been turned on its head! For hundreds of years, EVERY PERSON has had the perfectly equal right to marry at one time one spouse of the opposite sex, as nature and nature's God has ordained…
Within weeks of the Supreme Court 5-4 ruling AGAINST GOD-ORDAINED MARRIAGE, we are already seeing the fallout: punishment of Christians for their beliefs in order to further the "gay rights" agenda!
The newest outrage from Washington: an anti-Christian ENDA "bathroom bill" that has been forwarded from committee with the help of THREE Republican traitors: Mark Kirk (IL), Orrin Hatch (UT) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) while THREE Democrats – Joe Manchin (WV), Bill Nelson (FL), Mark Pryor (AR) – have so far declined to help their leftwing cohorts by refusing to cosponsor this radical "change" under a banner of non-discrimination.
If not stopped, the ENDA "bathroom bill" WRITTEN BY SINCE-RETIRED homosexual Congressman BARNEY FRANK will force Christian business owners to allow MALE employees to use the FEMALE restroom – no questions asked – and vice versa. But the demolition of MODESTY AND DECENCY isn't limited to just the restrooms…CROSS-DRESSING MUST BE ALLOWED IN THE OFFICE – or at meetings outside the office or wherever official company business is taking place!
The floor vote could be ANY DAY – WE MUST TAKE ACTION NOW!
According to the Family Research Council, ENDA will:
  • Force a Christian business to hire a man … who dresses in women's clothing.

  • Force your child's religious school to hire homosexual instructors.

  • Force your employer to fire or censure you for what they call "anti-gay harassment" … for simply keeping a Bible on your desk.

  • Bankrupt you with hundreds of thousands of dollars of coercive "compliance costs" as in the case of Jon and Elaine Huguenin, who politely declined to take "commitment ceremony" photos of two lesbians.

  • Force you to either participate in company "gay days" or be FIRED like Rolf Szabo, who was terminated by Kodak after 23 years of faithful service because he declined to participate in the company's "Coming Out Day" celebration of bisexual, and transgender (cross-dresser) employees.

  • Force you to take down TRADITIONAL family photos in your office like the Christian employees at Sandia National Laboratories after their homosexual co-workers complained that "traditional family" images were demeaning.
The disturbing paragraph of Senate Bill 815, states:
"(a) Dress or Grooming Standards – Nothing in this Act shall prohibit an employer from requiring an employee, during the employee's hours at work, to adhere to reasonable dress or grooming standards not prohibited by other provisions of Federal, State, or local law, provided that the employer permits any employee who has undergone gender transition prior to the time of employment, and any employee who has notified the employer that the employee has undergone or is undergoing gender transition after the time of employment, to adhere to the same dress or grooming standards as apply for the gender to which the employee has transitioned or is transitioning."
Conveniently for the liberals running amok and trampling our rights, the religious "freedom of conscience" protections in this bill do not protect for-profit Christian business owners, such as Bible publishers, Christian retail stores, or public restaurants!
"The legislation extends protections based on – quote – 'perceived' sexual orientation," Republican Minnesota Congressman John Kline warns. "These vaguely defined terms would result in an explosion of litigation." And it will be CHRISTIAN BUSINESS OWNERS paying millions in legal fees.
That's right – Christian business owners MUST PROTECT MALES' 'RIGHTS' TO USE THE WOMAN'S BATHROOM OR DRESS LIKE A WOMAN (OR VICE VERSA) or risk being SUED and facing the wrath of the Eric Holder Department of Justice. These individuals don't even need to have undergone a sex-change operation or have one scheduled – they just have to say they may desire a sex-change…
It's quite the convenient excuse for perverts AND the friendly neighborhood pedophile who wants to use the same bathroom as you and your little girl at the shopping mall. Say anything to this ADULT MALE about how you'd rather HE USE THE MEN'S ROOM and you'll be paying for YOUR lawyer and 'HIS'!
All he has to say is that he 'feels' like a woman.
We knew Obama promised a "fundamental transformation of America" – but flying specifically in the face of Christian faith and morals by removing all sense of propriety from the workplace and places of public business is, once again, going TOO FAR.
Yet, it is only the beginning…
Before the Supreme Court ruling on "gay" marriage, we were already hearing the horror stories of DISCRIMINATION LAWSUITS filed against our Churches, schools and small businesses for recognizing Jesus Christ and God or for honoring God and following their conscience IN ACCORDS WITH THE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF RELIGION.
Can you imagine the DISCRIMINATION LAWSUITS to come now that the ruling has been made and Obama's gay base with the backing of the Holder Department of Injustice emboldened in their sense of entitlement?
That's why we must start mounting RESISTANCE today.
We must PRE-EMPT the FORCED RECOGNITION AND ACCEPTANCE OF GAY MARRIAGE AS A RIGHT ON AMERICANS in violation of faith and conscience by demanding Congress immediately take up and pass "The Constitution Restoration Act."
We must also call on our sovereign States to reinforce our First Amendment rights as Catholics and Christians!
As Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas wrote in their dissenting opinion, "The Constitution does not guarantee the right to enter into a same-sex marriage."
"The Constitution does not codify either of these views of marriage," Alito writes. "The silence of the Constitution on this question should be enough to end the matter as far as the judiciary is concerned."
However, the case filed by Edith Windsor of New York (after she was forced to pay taxes on an inheritance when the woman she married IN CANADA died in 2009) was cleverly filed so that DOMA would be looked at through the Fifth Amendment Due Process Clause.
Doing so gave the liberal justices the very loophole they needed… and when they ran into any constitutional snags, they just MADE UP THE TENETS OF TRADITION!
"It is well established that any 'substantive' component to the Due Process Clause protects only those fundamental rights and liberties which are, objectively, 'deeply rooted in this Nation's history and tradition.'" Alito wrote, arguing this presumption as wrong from the get-go. "It is beyond dispute that the right to same-sex marriage is not deeply rooted in this Nation's history and tradition."
He points out, "No country allowed same-sex couples to marry until the Netherlands did so in 2000."
"What Windsor and the United States seek, therefore, is not the protection of a deeply rooted right but the recognition of a very new right," Alito writes, and because of this it is his belief that "Justices have cause for both caution and humility."
"Perhaps because they cannot show that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right under our Constitution, Windsor and the United States couch their arguments in equal protection terms," Alito continues.
He calls the Due Process approach "misguided" in asking the court "to rule that the presence of two members of the opposite sex is as rationally related to marriage as white skin is to voting or a Y-chromosome is to the ability to administer an estate."
"In our system of government, ultimate sovereignty rests with the people, and the people have the right to control their own destiny. Any change on a question so fundamental should be made by the people through their elected officials," he added.
"I hope that the Court will ultimately permit the people of each State to decide this question for themselves. Unless the Court is willing to allow this occur, the whiffs of federalism in the today's opinion of the court will soon be scattered to the wind."
We've already heard Obama vow to obliterate our soldier's First Amendment rights after the Fleming Amendment to protect them was attached to a Defense Spending bill.
And LAST month while visiting Northern Ireland for the G8 summit he made what has been described as "an alarming call for an end to Catholic education" – a CRITICAL COMPONENT OF OUR CHURCH AND OUR FAITH!
"If towns remain divided – if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can't see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden – that too encourages division and discourages cooperation," Obama said before an audience of 2,000 young people.
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf points out in his blog:
Ironically, President Obama made his comments just as Archbishop Gerhard Müller, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, told a crowd in Scotland that religious education upholds the dignity of the human person. Archbishop Müller said that Catholic schools should promote "all that is good in the philosophies of societies and human culture."
He called it "another example of what this man wants: total isolation of any religious values in the private sphere alone" that is, when it comes to Christianity, and Catholicism in particular.
Fr. Zuhlsdorf points out the hypocrisy:
Off the top of my head, I can't think of a foreign visit to a Islamic nation where he told people on his arrival that they shouldn't have madrasas. Can you?
Did he when visiting, say, Israel, say "You Jews shouldn't have synagogue schools and you muslims shouldn't have mosque schools." I can't remember. Did he?
So now, do you think Barack Obama is going to settle for the new "right" of gay "spouses" of our troops to be buried in Arlington National Cemetery or just tax breaks for these couples?
Because he's not.
It's going to be one discrimination case after another based on these hyper-political Washington-manufactured "new rights" as Alito calls them, aided and abetted by a complicit, vested political party (it wasn't for no reason that Rahm Emanuel notoriously said "gays are the next Jews of [Leftwing] fundraising") to steamroll the sanctity of tradition and the Constitution itself!
Christ's definition of marriage is one man and one woman. Period. But apparently the Word of God is of no use to those who willfully ignore it to fulfill selfish desire and who choose to create "new rights" to do so.
We already know the Leftists' holy trinity is race, gender, and class, so it is NO SURPRISE that they have rejected the centrality of the male and female presence in raising children – in fact, if the assault on true marriage isn't stopped, with the use of fertility and birth surrogates and technology, it will be normative, not aberrant, to conceive of children as a commodity to be obtained rather than as a natural blessing of God – and that is really the essence of this fight.
Whether they claim to have been "gay" since birth or homosexual as simply a lifestyle choice, it is a biological fact of natural possibilities that same sex couples cannot bear children without aid of unnatural means. It's not bigotry. It's a scientific fact of human potentialities – and whether they function as good parents or not is beside the point of natural design. The point is that God-ordained heterosexual marriage is naturally designed to stabilize FAMILY relationships for the sake of procreation, raising and nurturing our children – and perpetuating decent and productive society.
These natural biological bonds lack potentiality in same sex relationships, and will never be realized without extravagant artificial means such as surrogacy undertaken by "gay" couples. The high mortality rates and other epidemiology associated with pathologies of homosexuality underscore the truth that the "gay lifestyle" is obsessively self regarding, preoccupied with selfish gratification of the parties involved, and fosters high risk behaviors that are inimical to the well-being of stable relationships, never mind the nurturing and raising of children.
Instead, society needs "other regarding" couples of natural fecundity who embrace the vocation of sacramental marriage and will provide for America's posterity with healthy families. We as a society can ill afford the homosexual WANT list if Church teaching about human sexuality and the vocation of marriage are to be honored – whether it's the homosexuals' desire to be accepted as "normal," to have a Church wedding, to have a family – all the things FORSAKEN when the individuals involved turned their backs on sacramental marriage and God's natural order.
It is NOT true that American federal law is discriminatory regarding marriage – every adult person has the same rights under DOMA to marry – one man or one woman, of the opposite sex. If this is not one's sexual preference, one is not compelled to marry.
The laws in the United States already allowsame sex couples to freely cohabitate according to sexual preference and protect "gay" individuals from invidious discrimination – but all that's not enough…. Now, they want the federal government to overrule the immutable ordering of natural law, and especially protect a perverse personal choice to follow the "gay" lifestyle and traduce the true vocation of sacramental marriage.
The homosexual argument against DOMA is that the federal definition of marriage as one man-one woman puts federal power on the "wrong side of history" – but this argument is just plain WRONG, not just morally but LEGALLY as well! DOMA was originally passed by Congress to prevent abusive interference by the federal courts forcing recognition in traditional marriage States of same sex marriages performed in other States.
Because you see, under our Constitution, our States – where the PEOPLE have more control – set the rules on marriage, not the Feds, and certainly NOT the courts. And while the "gay rights" radicals want to say this is a fight for "civil rights," marriage is NOT a civil right, it is a natural institution which predates CIVIL SOCIETY and in fact makes stable CIVIL SOCIETY POSSIBLE!
Unfortunately, a U.S. Supreme Court decision to firmly protect God-ordained marriage as between one man and one woman and their children DID NOT HAPPEN, despite 37 States having laws in place recognizing the sanctity of traditional marriage.
With the well-heeled and well-connected gay rights lobby ready to force gay marriage ON ALL 50 STATES, we must take pre-emptive action NOW against the current gross usurpation of natural law and the campaign to normalize homosexual behavior with "gay marriage" – WE MUST DEMAND CONGRESS ACT AT ONCE TO PROTECT OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS AND STOP THE LEFTWING ASSAULT ON TRUE MARRIAGE!
We know the "gay" activists have done a brilliant P.R. job to make America at large think same sex marriage is merely about making one class of people happy and getting what everyone else has – and it has been done so well that we're sure even Barack Obama himself, who justifies HHS sterilization, contraception and abortifacient insurance mandates on Church organizations couldn't have done better.
Ironically, the "gay rights" advocates are often the same individuals, most of whom are non-believers, who make common cause with far-Left Christian bashing pro-Islamists who according to Shariah law would punish homosexuality by DEATH – yet we're the enemy in this fight for trying to protect God-ordained marriage and the traditional, nuclear family.
Meanwhile, Americans who disagree with endorsing homosexual culture and try to exercise their First Amendment rights by refusing wedding services to "gay couples" are being persecuted under force of law on civil rights complaints. We're even being warned about Christian schools being punished for refusing to admit students from "same sex families" and churches being threatened with a loss of tax exempt status for not celebrating "same sex unions" in the States that have legalized homosexual marriage.
And it will happen… unless we begin a new demand for the protection of OUR First Amendment rights as Christians to not be forced to act against our Faith!
We will continue in the fight to preserve natural marriage in our States and in supporting DOMA, but we need to take immediate action to demand Capitol Hill pass legislation protecting conscientious objection to, and faith-based rejection of, so-called "gay marriage."
We must gain this legal protection before this ruling gains any new legal victories for homosexuals against Christian dissidents and in direct violation of OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS!
Remind Capitol Hill and our States that the First Amendment cannot be hijacked and doled out as a political party favor.
Please, join us in fighting for our religious liberty NOW – BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!
