Good news for homosexuals in Amsterdam: Starting this summer, you will be able to indulge your sexual lusts in the open in the city’s favorite park without fear of arrest or persecution.
Bad news for dog owners in Amsterdam: You will be fined if your dog is unleashed in that same park.
According to the online version of the Daily Telegraph, Dutch council officials will permit gay sex in public areas, but fine dog owners who let their pets off the leash in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark. Alderman Paul van Grieken says homosexual sex in public “causes little bother for others and for a certain group actually means much pleasure.” In fact, the Dutch police are encouraging all Dutch parks to follow Amsterdam’s lead.
Four thousand miles away in the heart of the Bible Belt, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission stated that they are “powerless” to address the five-year-old problem of homosexuals engaging in and soliciting for sex in a state park enjoyed by families. Due to “lack of full-time enforcement,” the best the commission can do is to cordon off the existing parking area and create a new parking area, trail and animal observation platform, funded by North Carolina taxpayers and the Audubon society.
Last year, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Mayor Jim Naugle faced demands for his resignation when, according to LifeSiteNews.com, he “committed to cleaning up the problem of male sex taking place in [Fort Lauderdale’s main] children’s park public washrooms.” He’s been accused of “hate-speech” and being “homophobic” and “bigoted.”
These three examples surely beg the question: Do homosexual rights supersede the rights of the public? Is law enforcement helpless as homosexuals shout, “We’re here. We’re queer. Get used to it”?
Perhaps transsexual sex in public parks is next. Lesbian activist and attorney Jennifer Levi recently asserted in the pro-homosexual newspaper Bay Windows that “… the need to end discrimination against the transgender community outweighs discomfort that others might have when sharing facilities with them.”
In other words, if you’re a woman and you feel unsafe when a man walks into a female public restroom, or if you feel repulsed seeing two men having sex while you’re walking with your children through a park, the homosexual message is: Get over it.
Why are locations close to innocent children so favored and fought for by many homosexuals? They want sex in parks near playgrounds and library restrooms, both without threat of arrest. It’s a homosexual’s dream to be an adult in the Boy Scouts. The real joy comes from discussing details of sexual mechanics in public school classrooms.
Is society as a whole being manipulated by the homosexual movement the same way a parent is manipulated when a pedophile is closing in on a child? Pedophiles work to gain the trust of parents, while simultaneously trying to arouse a child’s interest in sex.
Dr. Gene Abel, medical director of the Behavioral Medicine Institute of Atlanta, compared groups of self-confessed homosexual and heterosexual molesters. A sampling of molestation rates indicated that the homosexuals averaged molesting 150 children each, while the heterosexuals molested 19.8 victims each.
To be sure, reaching out to people with sexual addictions, whether they be heterosexual, homosexual, or other variants, is a noble cause. Many Christians extend compassion to those struggling with sexual disorders. Many former homosexuals have finally found peace. These are not people to hate, but people to be concerned for.
But in the midst of all this, the reality is that children are at serious risk as the homosexual agenda proliferates in our nation’s public schools and continues invading our public space. The homosexual movement does not view moral people as friends, but our children are strongly desired, and they represent a hub around which the homosexual movement spins.
A 24-page booklet titled “Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth” is slated for distribution in all 16,000 school districts in the country. Candi Cushman, education analyst for Focus on the Family Action, states that the material “communicates that religious-based viewpoints are harmful, and even dangerous.”
Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly captured the essence of the homosexual movement’s goal when Media Matters for America reported his protesting “the San Diego Padres’ decision to host a gay pride night and a children’s hat giveaway promotion” during a baseball game. O’Reilly said that “thousands of gay adults showed up and commingled with straight families.” He insisted that “clear-thinking people understand it is completely out of context and inappropriate.”
Then O’Reilly solidly hit the ball out of the park when he said it is “insane” to “cluster” homosexuals and lesbians during an event for children under 12.
Are we helpless in protecting our kids? By no means.
We can start by removing our children from the public schools, which stand at the vanguard of teaching and normalizing the homosexual lifestyle. Check your child’s school library and sex-ed curriculum if you doubt that fact.
Cluster your kids around your table throughout the day and inculcate decency and values in their hearts. Home education researcher Dr. Brian Ray has an apt name for this healthy lifestyle: Parent-led home-based discipleship.
Those influenced by the “rulers of the darkness of this world” are doing their best to “call evil good and good evil” by using the public airwaves, public parks and public schools to push deviant sexual practices into the faces of our innocent children.
An entire generation is at risk.
Parents, what are you going to do about it?
