Homosexuality 101

American Leadership Fund

American Leadership Fund is a member of a national network of leaders and scholars that are speaking strongly in favor of Marriage between a man and a woman.

Please take time to watch this powerful address by one of the members of our network, the Dean of Liberty University Law School, Matthew Staver. He defends his premise that legalizing same-sex “marriage” is the beginning of the end of Western Civilization, Marriage and gender.

Then, at the end of this post, I’ve included a powerful and professionally-produced 90-minute video that explains in detail the history of this battle for Marriage. Share these videos with your family and neighbors.

Here is the background:

On December 20, 2013 a single federal judge – Robert Shelby – declared, without a hearing, that Utah’s law protecting Marriage between a man and a woman was “unconstitutional.” Why? Because he wanted to be “on the right side of history.”

The U.S. Supreme Court STAYED that motion while Utah and Oklahoma appealed. On June 25, 2014, a panel of three judges at the 10th Circuit Court declared that Utah’s and Oklahoma’s laws were unconstitutional, and both appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

American Leadership Fund raised the funds to file an amicus brief in the 10th Circuit as well as the 4th, using the Court’s own standard – a rational basis representing 19 historical scholars on the subject.

Utah is now appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court. Meanwhile, we must be very clear on what the battle we are waging is all about, who the enemy is, and how we are to respond as Christians and Orthodox Jews and any other faith that adheres to Biblical truth.

Let’s be very clear on what is really happening here with the gay rights movement.  This is the 1960s sexual revolution on steroids. It has nothing to do with the well-being of children. It is entirely focused on adults’ selfish desires, redefining Marriage based on “love” and sex acts rather than the institution that procreates and protects children.

Let me reiterate:  Throughout time, Marriage has always been defined for the procreation and protection of children. No rational basis exists to justify that we will be on the “right side of history” to declare Marriage to be anything other than what it was and always will be.

If there is any “civil rights” in this debate, it is the fabricated “right” to a sexual revolution without restraint. (I’ll be writing more on that in an upcoming post.)  History shows that civilizations that condescend to legalizing immorality always implode and destroy themselves. That is the course upon which our judges have embarked.

As my friend Janet Boynes, of says, “As Christians, we teach a loving compassion without compromise.”

George Santayana Reason in Common Sense, The Life of Reason, Vol.1, echoed Edmund Burke’s earlier warning when he wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Here’s a bit of the past:

Some History

In the 1960’s during the start of the sexual revolution, eugenics (racist “survival of the fittest” population control) advocates from the United Nations under UNESCO, and specifically under SIECUS in the United States, began advocating mandatory sex education. For the first time in United States history, schools began teaching children and teenagers how to have sex – “safe” sex, simply because “they’re going to do it anyway.”

If these programs have been so effective, why then has the United States gone from single digits to 48% of all children being born out-of-wedlock during that same time frame?

The United States has not only abandoned the protection of children, these reckless, irrational judges are making it even worse for them simply because they selfishly want to be popular. They are saying that it’s not only okay to deliberately render a child either motherless or fatherless, it’s “constitutional” to place them in a home that has the highest statistics for abuse and dissolution of partners, especially lesbian relationships.

I have a message for Judge Bob Shelby:  He and his colleagues in the federal court and at the 10th Circuit Court can’t claim “animus.” They may think their hands are washed of this entire affair, and that they will be seen as heroes in history.  But we will all one day be judged by a Higher Judge and it’s only a matter of time that will tell how “right” they were on this side of history.  The end of this road upon which they have propelled Utah and the rest of the nation is quite predictable, and they will go down in history among the infamous.

The campaign to redefine and “transform” marriage is not about children. It’s not about civil rights.  It’s about legalizing lewdness and depravity and an in-your-face anything-goes environment to retaliate against organized religion, all at the expense of innocent children who simply deserve both a mom and a dad. #shameful

Why did we allow this to happen?

Times have changed for the American family.  Frankly, today’s parents are challenged at every turn.  It used to be that a football practice was once or twice a week.  Now it’s not just every night, it’s most of the summer and late hours after school because today every parent wants their son or daughter to be an Olympic-standard athlete gold medalist or to play in the NFL or to be number one on the latest TV talent show.

Parents are running between giving up their prime time with their kids in schools, pre-schools and daycare centers that keep them away from home and their own parents – before and after hours, from infancy forward. Only time will tell what religious and emotional toll this takes on these little children who lack the nuturing and bonding with their own parents during the most critical, formative years of their lives, and the fallout from faith being in a secular environment rather than under the influence of their own parents.

This is a generation in which the parents are carpooling their school age children between soccer games and dance lessons, and rarely even have time to sit down around the family dinner table together any more, much less watch the news to know what is happening to destroy their future. This is no way to define “family.” It is more like the communal kibbutz where the village raises the child. Parents are abdicating their God-given responsibility.

We should all be alarmed.  With three stair-step boys in school and two pre-schoolers, I remember being on this same tread mill.  I finally said, “Enough.”  We taught the kids at home.  Each child chose one sport, and we turned off the TV.  We ate dinner together every night.  The home was peaceful and happy and calm, so much so that when the plumber arrived one day to fix a leak, he noticed the quiet classical music playing in the background and each of the children sitting quietly studying, and he said, “What is going on here?”

We had tuned out the world and its stresses just to spend time – quality and PRIME time – with our children.  It was a moment in time I will always cherish.

Back to the World – and the Present: A Must-See Video on Homosexuality

Today, at every turn, our children and grandchildren are bombarded with the views of the world, especially with regard to the sexual revolution, the normalization of homosexuality being paramount. For those who are still confused about the debates surrounding homosexuality and gay “marriage,” this is an excellent, very professionally edited 90-minute video.  It will help you and your family better understand the campaign to normalize an entire sexual revolution.

In addition I suggest an excellent book written by Michael Brown, PhD – Can You Be Gay and Christian?  Responding with LOVE & TRUTH to Questions About HOMOSEXUALITY.

Can you be gay and christian

Utah is now on its way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and American Leadership Fund has a goal to raise another $10,000 by the end of August.  We are launching a radio show and also developing a media campaign to win in the Court of Public Opinion, and we need your help – today.  While large corporations such as gave $50,000 or more to support “gay pride” in Salt Lake City, those of us who fight this controversial battle depend on the contributions of people such as you.  Please support American Leadership Fund today with a generous donation of $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more.

Remember who this is really about.  It’s not the adults.

Gay Rights Strategy: Take Utah By Anti-Discrimination Town By Town

A Preface to My Holladay Friends and Neighbors:

I ask for your patience in how often I hammer your inboxes with news and urgent alerts. These are the times we’re in, and I’m trying to be helpful and to keep you informed. I do not typically send my usual updates on a variety of topics. Instead, I keep your email alerts focused on the religious liberty issues, unless you inform me that you wish to receive updates on other moral and family issues.

So I appreciate your being open to new information because while the matter of gay marriage may be clear to most, thetopic of anti-discrimination ordinances is very much misunderstood, especially how it relates to the marriage issue and the negative consequences of passing such laws.

For those of you that have not been involved in the debates taking place in the public square surrounding the definition of marriage and gay rights, it is not always as you may hear on the radio, read in the paper or watch on TV. Sometimes it is difficult to get our message out because most newsrooms today have pro-gay biases.

This topic is definitely the most difficult of all the debates we ever undertake in the public square. That’s because no matter how kind and civil we are in this discussion, we will always be called “bigots” and “hatemongers.”

For my own disclaimer, I do not hate, but I do consider homosexuality (the behavior) a sin, based on my religious beliefs and self-evident truth.

In 1997-2001 I owned a performing arts business in New York City in which 50% of my staff was gay. I have observed that discrimination in the work place is rather overblown and because of anti-discrimination laws already in place, I’m also aware that they are widely abused and can cause havoc in the workplace.

So overblown are they, I learned that not only does the City of Holladay not have an anti-discrimination ordinance that includes sexual orientation and gender identity, it also has never had ANY anti-discrimination ordinance at all! In spite of that, it has never had a single discrimination claim.

Through all the angst, one needs to keep a sense of humor. That says something about Holladay now, doesn’t it? We must be a fairly civil bunch over on the east bench to never have needed any form of anti-discrimination ordinances all these years.

But then, that also begs the question: Why does Holladay now need an entire overhaul that – from experience elsewhere – will only adversely impact business and the community’s “prosperity,” its “safety,” “comfort” and “convenience?” Those are key words in the text of the proposed ordinance and should be noted in this discussion.

In fact, only three complaints have been brought forward out of all 18 anti-discrimination jurisdictions in Utah, and all three have been dismissed.

That also says a lot about the state of Utah.

However, Utah has taken a dramatic turn, forced on its residents by one judge’s federal ruling on December 20, 2013, even though the U.S. Supreme Court had previously ruled that the matter not a federal concern but was up to the various states.

A Rumor and Some Facts About Anti-Discrimination

I’m told that the LDS Church supports this anti-discrimination ordinance. Yet, I’m not aware of any anti-discrimination law that the LDS Church has supported beyond that original Salt Lake ordinance.

The LDS Church has also not supported any anti-discrimination bill at the state legislature during the sessions since that Salt Lake ordinance, even though some religious exemptions are included, as was the case with the Salt Lake ordinance.

However, the LDS Church does support its statement, The Proclamation on the Family, that clearly defines “gender identity” as an eternal sex assignment, contrary to the language of proposed anti-discrimination ordinances now being proposed.

The times have changed, and experience has taught us what the real purpose of this anti-discrimination campaign is: to overturn Utah’s Marriage Law – Amendment 3.

A long-planned strategy to take down Utah’s constitutional marriage law has included a town-by-town strategy: to pass as many “anti-discrimination ordinances” as possible during the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals challenge.

No state has legalized gay marriage without passing anti-discrimination laws, especially at the state level.

Utah has 18 cities or towns that have passed “anti-discrimination” in employment and housing ordinances. That title is as misleading as is President Obama’s “Affordable Care Act.” The only thing “universal” about that health care law is that it is not affordable.

Likewise, the anti-discrimination measures actually prove to be the opposite of their title: In practice, they are the precise vehicles to legalize discrimination and persecution – against churches, synagogues, mosques and especially their adherents that still believe homosexual relationships are a sin against their God’s laws.

Watch this video to get a glimpse of the Massachusetts experience.

Utah’s leadership team in the State legislature has agreed not to introduce any gay-related legislation during the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals challenge in which the Attorney General’s office is defending that Constitutional Amendment 3 so as not to negatively impact the outcome. We hope that will continue to be the case throughout the 45-day session now underway.

The Holladay Story

Not so in the towns. On February 6, 2014, the City of Holladay, an upper-crust bedroom community, proposed its non-discrimination proposal with the intent to pass it on February 20, 2014. Although he is a successful businessman and a likeable man, the new Holladay Mayor Rob Dahle is not a conservative nor a Republican. (Democrats in Utah typically call themselves “independent” to get elected in Republican communities).

The citizens did not take notice when prominent Republicans were backing his opponent Blaine Anderson – names such as Josh Romney and the former Mayor Dennis Webb, Anne-Marie Lampropoulos, Salt Lake County Republican Chairman Chad Bennion, and another Republican contender who did not make the cut, attorney Helen Redd.

To his credit, Rob Dahle did a few things right to get elected.  He served as the Cottonwood Club’s president, and we love that club. So do many Holladay families – their children participate in the tennis and swim activities throughout the summer months and it’s a center of networking. Dahle also created a massive yard sign campaign, which can win local races.

But he was not the conservative choice in the November election, and he has since endorsed this gay rights proposal. His “independent” friends must have known that. He garnered a mix of liberal Republican/Democrat endorsements.  Red Flag.

Those of us who are actively engaged in the political process knew that those endorsements would be bad news because no Democrat is going to support a pro-family, pro-Life, pro-marriage candidate, especially when they are names such as Rep. Carol Spackman Moss – one of the most liberal women in the Utah State Legislature, but also one of the most well-liked teachers Holladay natives had in school.

The other Democrat endorsement Dahle got, the new Salt Lake County Mayor, Democrat Ben McAdams, should have been a dead give-away. He won on a strong gay rights platform but also got the endorsement of a few out-there “Republicans.” It’s a pattern to watch out for.

Now Dahle is advocatingthis measure with the assistance of several of the six Council members – the majority of whom are also among those “independents.”

In addition, the United Church of Christ, a local liberal denomination that has departed from its Christian Biblical teachings in support of gay marriage, showed up in large numbers to support the ordinance.

Not much notice was given, and only two people rose to oppose it, unrepresentative of the true demographics of this community. Rather it speaks to the long-standing trust that good people have been elected to represent their values and principles because they are their friends and neighbors.

Watch Fox 13’s clip of the short debate here:

This is where we separate the men from the boys. Religious adherents from Holladay that believe in the universal and global standard that God’s law does not recognize gay marriage or the gay lifestyle must come together, organize and take action if they hope to live in a community that will protect their religious liberty in the future.

That may mean that Holladay citizens might need to do something outside of their comfort zone, such as to disagree with a friend or neighbor on the City Council – or the Mayor himself – because some have known them in business or in the neighborhood, at church or at the Club.

And they’re good people. Of course, they are. And it’s not easy to stand against a friend. Of course it’s not.  But, my friends, they may be about to vote wrong – knowingly or unknowingly – in a way that will be harmful to your children, your business or your safety, and we do need to speak up.

Your voice could – and will – make a difference in the outcome.  I’ve seen it happen all too many times.

Here are six steps to take today if we are to make a difference:

Step #1:  Sign the petition to the right NOW – before the working meeting Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 4:30 PM. Your name will be given to the Mayor and City Council Members.

Step #2: Contact the Mayor and City Council Members today and tell them to vote NO on this proposal.

Here are the concerns surrounding anti-discrimination ordinances.

  • Utah towns must first educate themselves about what non-discrimination ordinances have done in other states. 
    Tell your City Council members to please watch this video produced by Brian Camenker of Massachusetts’s foremost pro-family organization before voting on this ordinance
  • Not only is this a bad ordinance, but this is the wrong time.
    If Utah cities pass anti-discrimination ordinances while taxpayers are funding the appeals process through the Court to defend Utah’s Amendment 3, it could backfire and send a negative message to those judges.  In fact, it could put Utah’s entire case – and our tax dollars funding it – in jeopardy.
  • This proposed ordinance will legalize the LGBT’s intended consequences that cause fear, confusion, an invasion of privacy and loss of safety.

    Because of the “gender identity” language of the proposed ordinance, which is similar to that used in Massachusetts, experience has shown in that state that such an ordinance would allow people of either sex to have access to any bathroom, locker room or shower facility because citizens can simply say that they “identify” with that “gender.”  This means that boys could not be prevented – by ordinance – from using girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, etc.

    Although this may sound absurd or unthinkable, this is actually happening in other cities where anti-discrimination ordinances have passed. In fact, one of the more recent examples is a 5th grade Massachusetts boy who “identifies” with the female gender who is being allowed to use the girls’ bathroom by state law and local non-discrimination laws. 

    This is unsafe for the protection of women in public restrooms, not to mention an invasion of privacy at all ages. Some large companies and public facilities such as airports are attempting to accommodate these ordinances by providing a costly third option, a transgender bathroom/locker room.  But that has not satisfied the transgendered.  They simply threaten to file lawsuits against the town for singling them out when they really “identify” with either the male or female gender.  This is a costly and unnecessary measure.

  • This ordinance is not needed.
    In Utah, 18 cities have already passed anti-discrimination ordinances.  Only three complaints were issued in 2013, and all three were dismissed.
  • Holladay has never had any anti-discrimination ordinance protecting anything, and it has never had a single complaint.

  • Experience also shows that discrimination is not the goal, rather unalienable rights are at stake.
    We now have evidence that the goal is to eliminate a citizen’s Constitutional right to freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, the right to make a living and own private property, the right to privacy, freedom of speech, and freedom of association.
  • This ordinance is dangerous because it protects religious entities, but it does not protect their adherents that own property and businesses.
    During the passage of the Salt Lake City ordinance, the LDS Church said it would not agree to the ordinance unless religious entities were exempted.  However, that then left their own religious adherents in harm’s way, and it had a serious backlash at the state legislature during the next session. 

    The LDS Church has not publicly endorsed any anti-discrimination proposal since. However, its Proclamation on the Family clearly states that gender is an eternal assignment, not one “sincerely held” or “perceived.” Examples exist to show how business owners who have religious beliefs have been harmed in other states where non-discrimination ordinances and laws have passed.

  • This kind of policy discriminates against the many to protect the few.
    Where these ordinances have passed around the country, the stage has been set to protect only a small group of people. Evidence now exists to prove that gay rights activists are given special rights and protections to persecute others.  In this sense, it might best be named the “reverse discrimination ordinance.”

Step #3:  Attend the Holladay City Council working meeting to listen to the discussion and take notes. This agenda item is #7 and last on the agenda. No public comment is allowed in this meeting.

Disney Goes Gay – Taylor Has Two Moms

One can only speculate what Walt is doing today. Roll over Disney. His family-friendly station has turned another corner and featured its first gay couple in the history of every parent’s favorite family media brand. Disney’s TV series “Good Luck Charlie” featured this scene late January 2014.

Not even Disney is kid-safe these days. This is also just one in a long line of examples of child-recruitment for the gay lifestyle influencing the next generation on sit-com TV. Complete with the laugh track.

For a man that would never even smoke in public because he wanted to protect his wholesome image, I’m wondering what Disney would think about this anything-goes image being projected today in his name?

Two thumbs down for Disney. RIP.

California’s Referendum on Insanity: Stop Co-Ed Bathrooms

In 1977 I attended the International Womens Year Conference in Normal, Illinois as a delegate. The feminists in attendance laughed at us when we suggested that their logic on equality, defined in the Yale Law Journal, would lead to “unisex” bathrooms. Today it’s a reality. And California is NOT laughing.

A referendum is now in the works to repeal its insane “co-ed” bathroom law, in which students of either sex may enter the opposite sex bathroom just because they “believe.” It’s based on the otherwise innocuous, but really very dangerous, “gender identity” language which includes phrases and terms such as “sincerely-held belief,” “deeply-held belief,” “internal sense” or “perceived orientation” that a person is of another gender than the DNA (the chromosomes, biology, science, medicine) and all logic indicates. Here’s how the 2013 Utah bill read: Continue reading California’s Referendum on Insanity: Stop Co-Ed Bathrooms
