The National Gay
and Lesbian Task Force, the National Organization of Women, and the Democratic Party,
serve to advance the homosexual agenda in American society. And while many of
the people in the media are not personally homosexuals, they do believe that
the cause of homosexuality should be advanced as a civil
right.("Dannemeyer Seeks Christian Values in
Government," Christian American, May/June 1992).
Clinton promised homosexual and lesbian groups support for a
national gay rights law which would make
homosexuality a constitutionally protected civil right. Such a law could give
homosexuals, pedophiles, and sado-masochists the
same preferred standing at law that is now enjoyed by blacks, Hispanics, women,
and the physically handicapped. They want to give a man who marries another man
the same rights as a husband and wife and make it illegal for churches and
other religious groups to "discriminate" against homosexuals in their
Liberals and homosexual
groups have been pushing through Congress so-called "Hate Crimes" legislation that expands the
current definition of hate crimes to include offenses based on sexual
orientation, gender and disability.
The influential homosexual newspaper, the Washington Blade,
reported that Clinton's first priority was to pass laws that will
protect homosexuals from hiring practices. The
Lesbian and Gay Advocacy Project to Reelect Bill Clinton and Al Gore said, "He
is the first President to be personally and publicly committed to the
principles of equality and acceptance for gays and lesbians. He has done so
many things to make our lives better, safer, and more secure."
THE WHITE HOUSE
AND LESBIAN PRIDE CELEBRATION, 1997
Warm greetings to all those participating in the
1997 Gay and Lesbian Pride Celebration.
America's history, we have overcome tremendous challenges by drawing strength
from our great diversity. We must never believe that our diversity is a
weakness. The talents, contributions, and goodwill of people from so many
different back-grounds enriched our national life and have enabled us to
fulfill our common hopes and dreams. As we stand at the dawn of a new century,
we all must rededicate ourselves to reaching the vital goals of acceptance and
inclusion. America's continued success will depend on our ability to
understand, appreciate, and care for one another.
We're not there
yet, and that is why our efforts to end discrimination lesbians and gay men are
so important. Like each of you, I remain dedicated to ending discrimination and
preserving the civil rights of every citizen in our society. We have begun to
wage an all-out campaign against hate crimes in America -- crimes that are
often viciously directed at gay men and lesbians. I have also endorsed and
fought for civil rights legislation that would protect gay and lesbian
Americans from discrimination. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act now being
considered in Congress would put an end to discrimination gay men and lesbians
in the workplace -- discrimination that is currently legal in 39 states. These
efforts reflect our belief in the right of every American to be judged on his
or her merits and abilities, and to be allowed to contribute to society without
facing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. And they reflect our
ongoing fight against bigotry and intolerance in our country and in our hearts.
Administration's record of inclusiveness is a strong one, but it is a record to
build on. I am proud of the many openly gay men and lesbians who serve with
distinction in my Administration, and their impact will continue to be
significant in the years ahead. I pledge to you that I will continue striving
to foster compassion and understanding, working not simply to tolerate our
differences, but to celebrate them.
Best wishes for a memorable
(Signed) Bill Clinton
Undoubtedly a national gay rights law would take precedence over
first amendment religious freedom, as a local gay rights ordinance took
precedence in Washington, D.C., over the deeply held religious views of the
Roman Catholic authorities at Georgetown University, who were forced to give
standing and subsidies to homosexual student groups. Passage of this Act would
bar employers from any job-related action against an employee because of their
sexual preference or conduct, even when that conduct violates state law, an
employer's conscience, company policy, or all three.
Employment Non-Discrimination Act, was introduced into
the US congress in 1994 and reintroduced in 1995 with the support of President
Clinton. It was again reintroduced in 1996 and actually made it to a Senate
vote where it was narrowly defeated 49 to 50. A slightly modified form of the
ENDA bill was again introduced in 1997 where Republican leaders have vowed to
not bring the bill to the house floor for a vote. Bills were again introduced
into both the House and Senate in 1999; none made it into law. Senator Ted
Kennedy re-introduced the
Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in 2002 - the
Senate adjourned before voting on the bill.
In Colorado, the majority of voters
approved a law banning special rights and legal privilges for people based on
their sexual behavior - but six Supreme Court justices overthrew the will of
In California, AB257/S257
sailed-through the legislative processes establishing physically-impossible
quotas for homosexual-behaviorists in California businesses, charity
organizations, schools, and religious institutions. It took a veto by Governor
Pete Wilson to stop it.
The homosexual rights movement wants more than "tolerance."
Its final goal is for homosexuality to be considered
acceptable and normal. These folks will not stop until they have been
granted all the rights and benefits of traditional married couples. They seek
to redefine the family in order to "legitimize" their relationships.
Homosexuals first plan to gain legal rights as married couples through
"domestic partnership" laws, and then to seek state-sanctioned marriages and
the right to adopt children. (Rebecca Hagelin, "The Family
Battleground," Christian American, May/June 1992.)
homosexual activists see themselves as fighting for equal rights, what is at
stake is ''special rights.'' Roy Schmidt, city commissioner of Grand Rapids,
Michigan, voted against an ordinance adding gays to the existing civil rights
code. He insists, ''I have no problem with the gay
community or gay people. My beliefs aren't based on bigotry or ignorance. But
you could take it further and say fat people, prostitutes or left-handed people
deserve their own protections.'' Like many people who regard
themselves as unprejudiced, Schmidt sees gay rights as a threat to traditional
families. ''The core family unit already has enough problems. I don't want
my three sons to think that the gay life-style is acceptable.'' If his children
turned out gay, he adds, ''I would never disown or break away from them. But I
would try to have them mend their ways.''
The "acceptance" demanded is not forgiveness, but approval.
Sodomites and those who plead in their favor constantly call for "acceptance."
Some who have given the homosexual spokespersons the benefit of the doubt think
they are talking about being forgiven of their sin and accepted on the basis on
repentance. This is not what they mean! The "acceptance" they demand is
not that we accept them as penitent, forgiven sinners. It is not forgiveness
they seek, or even compromise. No! What they want is - the acceptance of
approval. They demand churches drop the "sin" label, and adopt the "alternate
life style" description.
- A Mississippi gay man filed suit in federal court against the
Oxford University Press demanding both $45 million in damages and the immediate
deletion of all scripture verses describing homosexuality as sinful. Joel Ford
claims, "This book of hearsay has abused and oppressed me and my people, the
Afro-Americans, and my gay and lesbian sisters and brothers." Ford said, The
Bible abused and oppressed me when it said homosexuality is a sin, because I
was born a homosexual."
- In Minneapolis, the Hennepin County jail will not allow
volunteer religious groups to tell inmates that homosexuality is a sin.
Officials say they are enforcing the county's "diversity" in sexual orientation
The Christian position is clear: Homosexuality is an abomination,
and we do not teach "tolerance" of a
perverse criminal behavior, any more than we would teach "tolerance" of child
abuse, pedophilia, rape, murder, cocaine dealing or embezzlement. While
Christians may hate the sin... they continue to love the sinner and offer a
message of hope for a healthier
