I would rather walk a mile barefoot on broken glass than endure aconfrontation with homosexual zealots.
However, that less painful path cannot be responsibly taken. Whatchoice is there but to stand in opposition to homosexual activists withtheir in-your-face arrogance, their malicious attacks on religion,family values and moral standards, and, in essence, their demand thatAmerican society be turned upside down and inside out to accommodatetheir sexual disorientations?

It is unconscionable that homosexual invectives and threats haveeffectively shut down most attempts to expose bogus research or addressthe cultural implications of the homosexual agenda. It should be, butapparently is not, a matter of serious concern, even shame, that so manyof our politicians, our journalists and commentators, our scientists,our government schools teachers, our university professors and ourclergy have either been seduced to advance the homosexual agenda,intimidated into passive assent, or cowed into silence.
It is one of the great ironies of modern-day America that it isliberals who are not only enabling, but spearheading a vicious versionof McCarthyism at its worse. Rarely in the history of our republic hasthere been such a successful effort to keep lies alive, suppress thetruth, censor speech, and engage in blatant character assassination.
It is successful because huge organizations like Procter and Gambleand AT&T have been bullied into withdrawing advertisements from aforthcoming television show featuring Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Dr.Laura’s mortal sin is in telling the clear truth about homosexuals, notas part of a crusade, but in response to call-in questions andinquiries. She tells the straight truth about homosexuals, and it soundslike hate speech to those who hate the truth and do not have the courageto deal with it.
It is successful because, even now, a significant majority ofAmericans believe homosexuals are born that way and that a full 10percent of the population is homosexual, even though the data andscientific evidence to support such beliefs simply do not exist. Whilethe homosexual lobbyists and radical activists are attacking on multiplefronts, one of the more underreported campaigns is taking place ingovernment schools, the target being young children. In a scantilyreported news event, two employees of the Massachusetts Department ofEducation and a paid consultant conducted a “Teach Out” at TuftsUniversity. The event was sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and StraightEducation Network (GLSEN). Children were delivered to the conference inschool buses, and government school teachers who attended earned statedevelopment credits. The workshop was entitled, “What They Didn’t TellYou About Queer Sex & Sexuality in the Health Class,” and it lived up toits name. The message delivered to teenagers as young as 14, a “how-to”in oral sex, anal sex and “fisting,” a hideous violation of the humanbody which is too vile and perverted to describe in a family newspaper.

The attempted cover up by the Massachusetts Department of Educationbroke down when it was revealed that several of the workshops weresecretly taped by Scott Whitman of the Parents Rights Coalition. As aresult of full coverage given by the Massachusetts news and a failure oflegal efforts to suppress the tapes, the State Commissioner ofEducation, David Driscoll, was forced to apologize, and the two stateinstructors were fired.
In the meanwhile, a 12-page booklet entitled, “Just the Facts aboutSexual Orientation & Youth,” has been mailed to the heads of all 14,700public school districts in America. Its message has been endorsed by anumber of mental health organizations, and has the blessings of theNational Education Association, the largest teachers’ union in America.
This booklet of facts has many kind words to say about homosexuality,but leaves out facts about its high risks and dangers. It also leavesout the fact that all the major religions of the world considerhomosexuality wrong, sinful and immoral.
This is a convenient omission, in that the booklet discourages anydiscussion of “reparative therapy” for unhappy homosexuals. The reasongiven for censoring out information on homosexuals who have successfullychanged their lives is that these changes often involve religion — andany discussion of religion in government schools, as the booklet warns,raises “constitutional problems.” It also raises solemn concerns aboutwhether “sex education” should occur in a school environment where theteachings of major religions are outlawed, the spiritual wisdom of theages is not allowed, and moral discernment is forbidden.
