Every week, the Family Research Council issues a list of “prayer targets” which usually consist of political issues in the news that members of its “prayer team” should focus on for that week.
Homosexual Agenda — Tuesday, President Obama proclaimed June “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” In the Proclamation, he boasts of his administration’s achievements to advance the homosexual agenda: opening the Armed Forces to openly practicing homosexuals “for the first time in our Nation’s history;” adding rules to eliminate discrimination against LGBT’s in federal housing programs; giving federal rights to LGBT’s to visit partners in the hospital; appointing homosexuals to top federal executive and judicial positions; targeting foreign laws that discriminate against LGBT’s; leading a campaign to put “sexual orientation” in a U.N. resolution — the first, ever, to specifically mention LGBT people. He further touted implementing and enforcing the Hate Crimes Prevention Act; efforts to reduce bullying and discrimination in schools; promoting the “It Gets Better” video; and his recommitment to increase funding for AIDS awareness and prevention.
Also Tuesday, homosexual activist Joe Salmonese of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) announced his organization’s “Call it Out” Campaign, a nationwide “effort to expose hatred — not just on national TV, but in communities.” HRC is creating a website where activists can register their accusations and complaints to silence any American who makes a public statement perceived as being “hostile” toward homosexuals or their agenda.
Meanwhile, U.S. efforts to promote homosexuality worldwide march on. FRCAction Senior V.P. Tom McClusky writes, “we are spending tax dollars on a Gay Bulgarian Film Festival (flyer here) [and] an “after show party… [W]hile the Administration is slow to defend oppressed Christians in Muslim and communist countries that are being killed for their beliefs, they took less then one day to condemn the Russian government for barring a homosexual pride parade in Moscow… [N]ew guidelines issued on Saturday…for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) program… tax dollars will now be available to force acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle in [recipient] countries, with little regard for the beliefs in the targeted countries… [recipients are required to] endorse the behavior that leads to AIDS. When President Bush started PEPFAR it was probably one of the most effective international outreach programs in decades, largely due to the effort to work with the targeted countries on the best way to solve AIDS crisis. President Obama’s colonialist approach is likely to lead to more countries rejecting U.S. aid…” (Proclamation; “Call it Out,” International Gay Outreach).
* Pray that God will protect America from the spiritual effects of this evil Presidential Proclamation. May Christians — who will be targeted by HRC’s smear campaign — enjoy God’s protection. And may this administration’s efforts to promote homosexuality overseas be resisted and defeated at home and abroad!
