Girl Accused of Seeking Hit on Father: "A 15-year-old Hagerstown girl suspected of being part of a clique of teens who liked to suck one another's blood approached a friend on a crowded high school bus in October and asked him to kill her father, prosecutors say. ...she told the friend, a male classmate, that he could find her father at 5 a.m., climbing into the work truck he parked in the alley behind their rowhouse. And that was where, on Halloween morning, her father's body was found in a pool of blood. He had been stabbed repeatedly in the head and neck. This week, the girl was ordered held without bond on charges of soliciting murder....
'The only thing he had a problem with was his daughter and her group of friends,' Dunlap said. They were a goth 'crew, sucking each other's blood, cutting each other.' ...On his MySpace page yesterday, the victim's 20-year-old son described himself as 'lost for words': 'I love you dad and miss you, you are the best father anyone could ask for. may God watch over you now.'"

Haggard blames abuse for sex scandal: "Disgraced evangelical pastor Ted Haggard says he was sexually abused as a child. He says the abuse led to the sex scandal that forced him out of his job and leadership role in the evangelical movement." See Moral and Cultural Corruption
Sex and the Olympics: "...The women, too, seemed in thrall to their hormones, throwing around daring glances and dynamite smiles like confetti. No meal or coffee break was complete without a breathless conversation with a lithe long jumper from Cuba or an Amazonian badminton player from Sweden, the mutual longing so evident it was almost comical.... There may have been a fair amount of gay sex going on, too - but given the notorious homophobia in sport it was rather more covert....
"...for most athletes, the village is thousands of miles from home.... There is something deep-seated in humanity that leads us to play by different rules whenever we leave town.... When it comes to sex, it simply means that those in relationships no longer recognise, or at least ignore, the boundaries of fidelity and honesty that underpin human monogamy. Philosophers call it moral relativism; the rest of us call it hypocrisy."

As Latin Nations Treat Gays Better, Asylum Is Elusive: "Quietly over the past 14 years, gay men and lesbians from Mexico have sought -- and received -- political asylum in the United States based on their sexual orientation and the argument that the culture of 'machismo' in their country has sometimes put homosexuals there in danger.... 'But there's been a turning point. The gay rights movement has started to make progress in Mexico, and it's a little harder to show' that asylum is warranted.... Many gays feel they have to have a wife for appearances." See See Spiritual & Corruption
...the center of circus-like atmosphere during international AIDS conference: "...this is like a circus. There's everything here -- free condoms, all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff.' [Wooding] asked Grant: 'What is a respectable Christian ministry doing in the middle of all this?' Grant responded: "I think this is just exactly where we should be -- it's great to be in an environment where there are so many different views.... ...this is a chance for the Church to be changed in terms of our judgmental attitudes and in terms of the stigma that we address towards people with living with HIV..." See Human Nature and Warren's P.E.A.C.E. Plan and UN Goals - Part 3
Signs of the Times. XVII International AIDS Conference in Mexico City: "It is a kind of never-ending street theater of protesters all trying to be more outrageous and louder than the previous group. ... I’ve just seen a group of 'sex workers' chanting for more rights, with some of them women wearing necklaces made of condoms.
"...a group of activists interrupted former president Bill Clinton’s speech as he was saying, 'AIDS is a very big dragon.... [T]his dragon must be slain by millions and millions of foot soldiers.' The former president remained unfazed as a silent crowd of demonstrators holding banners calling for housing for people with HIV walked in front of the podium....
"You could hardly walk a few feet in the Global Village without being handed free condoms and today I witnessed a group of Mexican Indian healers with their smoke and feathers doing their voodoo stuff for the hundreds of attendees lined up to get 'healed'....
"Rick and Kay Warren... are also here and have been deeply involved with the conference and even put on a special event yesterday to address the issue of global partnership ventures to help people living with HIV/AIDS. 'We are at this conference because we think this is where the Church ought to be,' Rick Warren said."
Is it any wonder people are fleeing London? "In a north London suburb last week, a schoolgirl was beaten, gang-raped and then had drain-cleaning fluid poured on her body apparently to destroy DNA evidence. In the eternal cesspit of senseless urban crime, I feel that a dreadful nadir of sorts has been reached, a benchmark of slaked lust and casual, sadistic cruelty. Police sources say the 16-year-old will never fully recover from the injuries. .. her life ruined by these savages, who hunted in a pack like animals....
"...some Muslim enclaves were 'no-go areas' for Christians, it all seems to suggest a country that is becoming increasingly fragmented; a patchwork of rigidly delineated little pockets of race and religion.... This is not a Britain many of us would care to recognise. ... certain sectors of the middle class are fleeing from inner London... desperate to escape the creeping spread of urban decay."

National Boycott of Fast Food Giant for Promoting Homosexuality: “McDonald’s has wisely chosen to alter its menu to promote healthy eating habits. Now it needs to examine its fiscal priorities and stop rewarding unhealthy lifestyles –– starting with an end to corporate subsidies for homosexual and transsexual behavior,' LaBarbera said. 'Homosexuality is unhealthy... 71 percent of male HIV cases in 2005 involved men who have sex with men.... And syphilis and other STD’s continue to afflict men practicing homosexuality at rates astronomically disproportionate to the rest of society.'...
"Noting that a McDonald’s recently suggested that pro-family critics of the corporation’s homosexuality-friendly policies are guilty of 'hate,' LaBarbera said: 'Christians and... moral-minded Americans... cannot sit back while Corporate America turns them into second-class citizens by equating their traditional beliefs with ‘hate.’ Sadly, ‘diversity’ is becoming a corporate code-word for anti-Christian bigotry – forcing people of faith to imbibe politically correct ideologies that violate their beliefs.”
Christian Hedonism: "Obama recently called abortion a 'difficult issue.' That is a nice way of saying you must ignore all of your moral instincts. Killing an unborn baby is not a 'difficult issue' if your conscience still works.... He called the miraculous creation of a baby 'punishment.' ... When you turn from God-created standards of right and wrong you are sure to end up in a moral swamp laden with 'difficult issues.' When right and wrong become an opinion, rather than truth, the swamp gets muddied. The truth is not difficult to believe, but it is difficult to obey." See Immorality
A radical agenda comes to Massachusetts: "The new GLBT (gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender) coalition is going all out to pass a law which will result in very disturbed people using opposite-sex bathrooms and locker rooms, dressing and behaving as the opposite sex in public and at work, and indoctrinating children in our public schools that this perverted behavior is a 'civil right.'... As we have experienced with the homosexual agenda in the schools... Massachusetts is setting the course for the rest of the country on radical social policies." See Ban Truth - Reap Tyranny and the next two links:
The Coming Nightmare of a “Transsexual Rights and Hate Crimes" Law in Massachusetts. This is an index to the many facets of this atrocious bill. The next link is one of the items:
Transsexual Rights and Hate Crimes" Law - Public Accommodations: “Gender identity or expression' would be added as a category that cannot be discriminated against in 'public accommodations.'... It could include any place outside of private homes -- public sidewalks and streets, 'common halls of buildings' (any buildings), and even churches and schools.... Existing Massachusetts law (Sec. 98 of chapter 272) seems to imply that even speaking publicly against the transgender non-discrimination law, much less leading an effort to overturn it, could result in fines &/or imprisonment....
"Will public accommodations come to include schools, churches and religious institutions? Most churches, after all, advertise and welcome the general public! And what about hospitals, specifically named as a public accommodation in the statute? ...
"If Bill H1722 is passed, not only could hotels not ban such groups or their lewd public behavior, but a complainer such as the grandfather could be subject to a fine of $2,500, a year in prison, plus damages of an undesignated amount for discriminating against this newly protected class of victims for 'inciting' or 'instigating' discrimination in a public accommodation." See Depravity and Why "Hate crime" laws would ban Biblical Christianity
Guarding Our Hearts in a Sexualized Culture: "Illicit sex has quietly permeated virtually every fiber of American culture, while pornography is on the verge of becoming a part of mainstream American life. As men, we face a daily onslaught of sexual images that titillate our senses; yet, the Bible commands us to 'Be pure as He is pure.' I am fully convinced that there has never been a more difficult time for men to guard their eyes and hearts than in modern day America." Prov 4:23-27
How sodomy was sold to America: “'Whoever, therefore wishes to ruin a nation, has only to get this vice introduced; for it is extremely difficult to extirpate it where it has once taken root because it can be propagated with much secrecy….” (John David Michaelis, Commentaries on the Laws of Moses, 1814)...
"The Homosexual Agenda. ... Their strategy was six fold: 1. Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and often as possible. 2. Portray gays as victims, not aggressive challengers. 3. Give homosexual protectors a 'just' cause. 4. Make gays look good. 5. Make the victimizers look bad. 6. Solicit Funds (Get corporate America and major foundations to financially support the homosexual cause.)" See Why "Hate Crime" laws ban Biblical Christianity
The Laramie Project" presented at high school: "Many of you may be aware of the pro-homosexual play 'The Laramie Project' that's being presented in colleges and even high schools across the country. It's an extremely offensive piece of propaganda that uses the murder of the gay college student Matthew Shepard to push acceptance of homosexuality and horribly demonize Christians and others who have moral issues with homosexual behavior. It is also an extremely violent and profane work, meant to be psychologically jarring, with little value beyond that." See Sex Ed and Global Values
Sexed-Up Sex-Ed: "At Princeton, the freshman class must attend 'Sex on a Saturday Night' (SoSN) during its first week.... The play spends much of its time glorifying the hook-up culture, and through crude jokes and jejune stereotypes, drowning out the message about rape. Every one of the play's 10 characters (including one gay couple) is sexually active, save for the token abstainer, who comes off as hokey (and owns a copy of Playboy).... Indeed, the play gives freshmen the false sense that virtually all of their peers are sexually active, with the resulting message that, 'Maybe you should be too.'... The vast majority of students report feelings of exploitation, discomfort, regret and guilt after a hookup, with rates higher among women. ...
"...scathing university-sponsored lectures like 'The Religious Right's Obsession with Gay Sex' demonstrate a pattern of programs...." See Sex-ed and Global Values
Homosexual Male ‘Cruising’: [Should children be alerted to this danger?] "Home Depot stores are on the Ft. Lauderdale 'cruising for sex'listings used by homosexual men to hook-up for anonymous sex with other men. In both, 'cruisy toilets' are cited, meaning that the store’s restrooms are used as a place for men to engage in sodomitic perversions." But any criticism might soon be viewed as "hate crime." See Why "Hate Crime" laws ban Biblical Christianity
How a 'gay rights' leader became straight: "Homosexuality, delivered to young minds, is by its very nature pornographic. It destroys impressionable minds and confuses their developing sexuality; I did not realize this, however, until I was 30 years old.... There was extreme support, by all sides, for YGA [Young Gay America] Magazine; schools, parent groups, libraries, governmental associations, everyone seemed to want it. It tapped right into the zeitgeist of 'accepting and promoting' homosexuality, and I was considered a leader. ... Knowing no one who I could approach with my questions and my doubts, I turned to God; I'd developed a growing relationship with God, thanks to a debilitating bout with intestinal cramps caused by the upset stomach-inducing behaviors I'd been engaged in." See Resisting immorality
It's Not Enough to Be 'Wanted': "Illegitimacy has risen despite -- indeed, because of--legal abortion.... The abortion debate usually centers on the morality of the act itself. But liberalizing abortion rules from 1969 to 1973 ignited vast social changes in America.... Roe did substantially increase abortions.... But many other changes occurred at the same time: • A sharp increase in pre-marital sex. • A sharp rise in out-of-wedlock births. • A drop in the number of children placed for adoption. • A decline in marriages that occur after the woman is pregnant....With abortion seen as a backup, women as well as men became ... more likely to have premarital sex...." See Human Nature
The real hate speech: "Just who are the haters? Here are some of the blog postings from homosexual activists following the death of... Dr. Jerry Falwell:
"What an absolutely putrid little excrescence of vomit he was.'
"...after watching Falwell I know know (sic) why the Romans threw the Christians to the lions."
"Oh, thank non-god. One down, 28 percent to go."...
"Homosexuals more than hated Jerry Falwell, whom they attacked, maligned, ridiculed and threatened... even attempted to kill.... As Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth pointed out on my radio program, when homosexuals protested Dr. Falwell, they were surprised to look up and find the reverend hugging his harassers. He overcame hate with love … and truth. Truth was the part they didn't like. As 75-year-old grandmother Arlene Elshinnawy's sign read before they hauled her off to jail for displaying it: 'The Truth is Hate to those who Hate the Truth.'...
"Mary Stachowicz, a 51-year-old wife and mother of four... was murdered by 19-year-old homosexual Nicholas Gutierrez in Chicago for the crime of disagreeing with his lifestyle. According to police reports, Stachowicz asked Gutierrez, who lived in an apartment above her, 'Why do you [have sex with] boys instead of girls?' That was when he 'punched, kicked, stabbed and strangled' her before stuffing her body into a crawl space under the floor of his apartment, where it remained for two days until he confessed to police."
Federal judge dismisses David Parker's civil rights lawsuit: "Ruling is every parent's nightmare. The ruling goes to extraordinary lengths to legitimize and reinforce the 'right' (and even the duty) of schools to normalize homosexual behavior to even the youngest of children. ...normalizing homosexuality to young children is 'reasonably related to the goals of preparing students to become engaged and productive citizens in our democracy.' According to Wolf, this means teaching 'diversity' which includes 'differences in sexual orientation.'" See Human Nature & Why "Hate Crime" laws ban Biblical Christianity
Homosexuals brainwashing our children in elementary schools: "Extremely slick propaganda directed at the youngest of children! The videos below are from It's Elementary... These are actual scenes from elementary schools in Massachusetts and New York. It's Elementary is meant to be a training video for homosexual activist teachers across the country. In addition, the film itself has been shown to schoolchildren in public schools in Massachusetts and elsewhere.... How many more young children are being desensitized to homosexuality in their young years by these sophisticated techniques?" See Sex Ed and Global Values
Embattled AG now accused in sex scandal 'cover-up': "Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, both already under siege for other matters, are now being accused of failing to prosecute officers of the Texas Youth Commission after a Texas Ranger investigation documented that guards and administrators were sexually abusing the institution's minor boy inmates. Among the charges in the Texas Ranger report were that administrators would rouse boys from their sleep for the purpose of conducting all-night sex parties....
"Texas Ranger official Burzynski received a July 28, 2005, letter from Bill Baumann, assistant U.S. attorney in Sutton's office, declining prosecution on the argument that under 18 U.S.C. Section 242, the government would have to demonstrate that the boys subjected to sexual abuse sustained 'bodily injury.' Baumann wrote that, 'As you know, our interviews of the victims revealed that none sustained 'bodily injury.' ... None of the victims have claimed to have felt physical pain during the course of the sexual assaults which they described.'...
"Baumann's letter went so far as to suggest that the victims may have willingly participated in, or even enjoyed, the acts of pedophilia involved: '...Although none of the victims admit that they consented to the sexual contact, none resisted...." See Moral, Spiritual & Cultural corruption
Children and Religious Freedom Lose as “Gay Equality” Wins in Britain: "Prime Minister Tony Blair unwittingly cut to the nub of how 'sexual orientation' laws inevitably destroy religious freedom when he said that Britain’s 'gay'-inclusive nondiscrimination laws should not exempt Catholic adoption agencies that refuse, for reasons of faith, to place children in homosexual households.... Christians are fast becoming second-class citizens in Western nations that have bought into the ideology of homosexuality as a civil right.'” See Ban truth - Reap Tyranny
The Latest Bakker Scandal: “'It sounds so churchy, but I felt like God spoke to my heart and said ‘[homosexuality] is not a sin.' – Jay Bakker, son of disgraced televangelists Jim & Tammy Faye Bakker, and co-founder of 'Revolution Church'....
Peter LaBarbera's response: "A new 'truth'? Sorry, Jay. Thankfully, we have a bit more reliable divine revelation and church tradition upon which to base our moral beliefs than the young Bakker’s alleged private revelation, which would cause us to re-write the Bible...." See Spiritual & Cultural corruption
Call for end to discrimination on basis of race, religion, gender: "Pakistan based Human Rights organization... has condemned discrimination on the basis of race, religion, area and gender across the globe ... The resolution also demanded of the government to set up Human Rights institutions and become signatory to the United Nations conventions on Citizens’ Rights." The UN promises no rights for anyone who doesn't obey UN guidelines and restrictions on Christianity. See Trading U.S. Rights for UN Rules
Rick Warren’s “Global Summit on AIDS and the Church”: Warren's "church in California was asked how he was going to change the perception that people had of him over the invitation to Obama. 'Well I think the Jesus way of change is to always show love even to your critics,' he said. 'Even Gandhi knew that… Martin Luther King knew that also, so we’re not going to worry about our critics.'....
"Warren then added, '... I was publicly tested [for AIDS] last year to say we need to remove the stigma and probably sixty of my pastoral staff were tested last year.”
As Warren has often stressed, a major goal of the AIDS campaign is to remove any stigma attached to homosexual practices -- no matter what the Bible has to say about such practices and their consequences. See Warren's P.E.A.C.E. Plan - Part 3: Whom do we serve?
Elton John, 'Banning Religion,' and Criminalizing Christianity: "If you are banned by the state from acting on your faith and moral beliefs, then you are no longer free."–Peter LaBarbera
"Aging pop star and homosexual Elton John wants to 'ban religion completely' because he says it promotes 'hatred and spite against gays.' People of faith are outraged, but do they understand that the homosexual lobby seeks to accomplish part of Elton’s dream–i.e., 'banning' the outworking of traditional religion that results in speech and actions opposed to homosexuality?"

Penguin book stirs Illinois school: "A picture book about two male penguins raising a baby penguin is getting a chilly reception among some parents who worry about the book's availability to children -- and the reluctance of school administrators to restrict access to it. The concerns are the latest involving 'And Tango Makes Three,' the illustrated children's book based on a true story of two male penguins in New York City's Central Park Zoo that adopted a fertilized egg and raised the chick as their own. ...
"Miss Filyaw considers the book 'adorable' and age appropriate, written for children 4 to 8. 'My feeling is that a library is to serve an entire population,' she said. 'It means you represent different families in a society -- different religions, different beliefs.'" See Clinton's War on Hate Bans Christian Values
British youths 'among worst in Europe': "British teenagers are among the worst behaved in Europe, outranking their continental peers in the consumption of alcohol and drugs and levels of violence and sexual promiscuity.... Britain has the highest rates of births to teenagers in Europe... more than four times the rate of Slovenia, Sweden or Denmark.... The IPPR report highlights a growing rift between youths and adults, with 45 per cent of 15-year-old boys in England and 59 per cent in Scotland spending most evenings with friends rather than family."

Students Role-play Sadomasochism in Toronto University’s Sexual Diversity Program: "University of Toronto students in the Sexual Diversity Studies program explore sadomasochism, bondage and domination as part of an 'academic' approach to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues.... Described as 'edgy,' the Sexual Diversity Studies program is one of the largest of its kind in North America....

Philadelphia Schools Declare Gay History Month: "The special recognition was granted at the request of a group of gay students and parents, whom school officials apparently meet with on a regular basis. Alberta Wilson, founder of Faith First Educational Assistance Corp., said even elementary-level phonics cards have been rendered politically correct. 'They're teaching three syllable words —the word 'fam-i-ly.'...And on those phonics cards they have a mom and a dad, an elderly grandparent and grandfather raising children, and then they have two men and two women. They are teaching our young children that this is acceptable and that they should tolerate it....
"Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth, warned that the organizations pushing the normalization of homosexuality in schools have a 'give an inch, take a mile' mentality. 'The homosexual agenda always advances incrementally, and so they start out by putting it on the calendar,' he explained. 'And then there'll be pressure to say, 'Hey, we have to teach gay history just like we teach African-American history.'' See Moral, Spiritual & Cultural corruption
Michigan Bill Would Require Cancer Vaccine: "Michigan girls entering the sixth grade next year would have to be vaccinated against cervical cancer under legislation backed Tuesday by a bipartisan group of female lawmakers. ... The vaccine was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in June for use in girls and women.... It prevents infections from some strains of the sexually transmitted human papilloma virus, which can cause cervical cancer and genital warts. A government advisory panel said that ideally the vaccine should be given before girls become sexually active." See Total transformation
45% of Hoosier college students binge drink: "'Indiana college students are binge drinking at a rate slightly under the national average of 47 percent. Binge drinking is defined as five or more drinks for a male and four or more drinks for a female in a two-hour period. Sixty-five percent of students under age 21 and 71 percent of all students admitted consuming alcohol during the previous 30 days. Among those who drink or use drugs, 35 percent report some type of public misconduct while partaking, such as fighting or trouble with police. One in 10 students responded that their drinking led to them becoming victims of a sexual assault. Twelve percent report using marijuana in the past 30 days.

Law & Culture. New California gay anti-bias law assailed: "California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger this week made it illegal for state-funded service providers, such as police and fire departments and universities, to discriminate against homosexuals, bisexuals and transgendered persons. Senate Bill 1441, signed into law Monday by Mr. Schwarzenegger, 'closes a crucial gap' in state civil rights law, said lead sponsor state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, who was backed by Equality California, a homosexual rights group. ... Numerous Christian colleges... asked Mr. Schwarzenegger to veto the bill.... Day care centers, businesses and nonprofits that contract with the state or take state vouchers will be forced to choose between promoting homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality within their operations and work forces, including hiring practices, or forfeiting state funding....

Pop music's sex education: "A couple of years ago, researchers at the RAND Corp. released a study that found heavy exposure to sexual content on television shows relates strongly to teenagers' initiation of intercourse or their progression to more advanced sexual activities.... Now the RAND Corp. has a new study, published in the August issue of the journal Pediatrics, taking on another major teenage influence: their music. The same alarming results jump off the page. According to the study, based on interviews with nearly 1,500 teens, those who said they listened to sexually explicit music were almost twice as likely to start having sex within the following two years than those who listen to little or none of that music."

Tough love: "According to a March survey of 13- to 18-year-olds, nearly one in three teenage girls in dating relationships say they have feared being physically hurt by a partner. Almost one in five admit being hit, slapped or shoved by a boyfriend. Nevertheless, in the same online poll conducted by Teenage Research Unlimited marketing firm, many young people not only accept such behaviors but consider them normal and exciting: Nearly half admitted doing something that conflicted with their personal values or beliefs to please a boyfriend or girlfriend. Some said they would 'do almost anything' to hold onto a relationship." See Ban truth - Reap Tyranny

Doctors put girls aged 10 on the pill: "Doctors have prescribed the contraceptive pill to girls as young as 10, according to research that will reignite the debate over the spread of under-age sex in Britain.... Walling said that when he questioned a 12-year-old about her sexual relationships with three boys aged under 16, she persuaded him she knew what she was doing. 'I asked her if she understood the emotional involvement and the risks to her body and she said, ‘Yes, I do. If you do not prescribe the contraceptive pill, I am still going to have sex’.'” See Moral corruptionShock rock guru Alice Cooper a Christian?

Parents Protest American Library Association's 'Censorship': "Unbeknownst to most people, a new wave of literature called 'authentic literature' hit our public school libraries over the last few years. The ALA claims such books portray American life and culture in a more realistic fashion. But they don't. These books feature druggies, sex addicts, pedophiles, gang members and others on the fringes of society. Increasingly, this literature is replacing the traditional literature classics, which, in general, promoted mainstream American values or at least didn't undermine them."

Generation P: "Sticking with the most important theme of the book -- the sexualization of children -- Shapiro correctly observes that TV portrayals of casual sex itself are not the problem.

Religion is Morally Neutral’: "[Anglican archbishop] Desmond Tutu Tutu, [Anglican archbishop] winner of the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize, wants to move out of the public eye. 'I'm striving to cut down and have a much more contemplative lifestyle.'..
"...religion in and of itself is morally neutral. Religion is like a knife. When you use a knife for cutting up bread to prepare sandwiches, a knife is good. If you use the same knife to stick into somebody’s guts, a knife is bad. Religion in and of itself is not good or bad—it is what it makes you do… Frequently, fundamentalists will say this person is the anointed of God if the particular person is supporting their own positions on for instance, homosexuality, or abortion."
Does this Anglican archbishop -- like the Archbishop of Canterbury -- reject God's moral guidelines and re-imagine truth according to his own personal feelings and politically correct standards?
