Homosexual Agenda -
Have we the Good Will and Courage to Stop It?

[COMMENT:  Either we find some back bone and some love of fellow man to get us up before the public on this issue, or the issue will have the backbone and hatred of opposition to deal with us.  Take your pick.  Men in the West have become marshmallows, unable to defend their families, their faith, or their legitimate freedom.  For a strategy which could turn the mess around, click here.

Dear Friends,

I am sending you the text (below) of a recent article from LifeSiteNews.com that will help to explain why I have begun to give a lot of time and attention to the international scene. While things are bad in the US, they are worse in the EU, and we know from Lawrence v. Texas (the case that struck down US sodomy laws) that our own Supreme Court is now following Europe’s lead. As you may know, I “minored” in International Human Rights Law in law school, including a summer program in Strasbourg, France, administered by the United Nations. In a couple of weeks I will be speaking at the World Congress of Families IV in Warsaw. I will use the opportunity to offer my assistance in any litigation that may arise in the European Courts.

This is a critical strategic battle because unlike the US situation, it involves treaty law, not the internal constitutional law of a sovereign nation. If pro-family countries can defeat or slow the homosexual agenda in this area of law, it would possibly open the door to litigation through the treaties that the US has signed. Please be in prayer about this.

SECONDLY, since we’re dealing with legal matters, I am still co-counsel on the Good News v. City of Oakland case, which is right now being prepared for appeal to the US Supreme Court. We need donations to help pay the costs of the appeal. Please consider donating to this need at defendthefamily.com/help/donate.php. As you may recall, our clients are African-American Christian women who were threatened with termination from their city jobs for posting a flyer inviting fellow employees to respect “the natural family, marriage and family values” in the workplace. The Federal Ninth Circuit Court ruled that the City had the right to censor this phrase under its anti-discrimination policy. We don’t believe the present Supreme Court will have such low esteem for the First Amendment. Please pray that it will agree to hear our appeal (only a very small percent are accepted for review).

Thanks,

Dr. Scott Lively

European Parliament Passes Resolution Vowing to Take 'Homophobic' Countries to Court
Slams Poland as "Hateful" for Failing to Allow Promotion of Homosexuality in Schools
By John-Henry Westen

BRUSSELS, April 26, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a disgraceful debate in the European Parliament (EP) yesterday, Members of the European Parliament from France, the Netherlands and Italy, among others, vilified Poland as "hateful" and "repulsive" for refusing to allow promotion of homosexuality in schools.

A vote was held today to approve an EP resolution chastising Poland for 'homophobia.' The resolution - adopted by 325 votes to 124, with 150 abstentions - calls for a fact-finding mission to be sent to Poland, for "worldwide de-criminalisation of homosexuality" and for the Commission to take Member States to court if they breach their EU obligations.

At issue was a proposed law in Poland which would forbid "homosexual propaganda" in schools. Explaining the legislation earlier this year, Roman Giertych, Poland's minister of education: "One must limit homosexual propaganda so that children won't have an improper view of family"

Beginning the debate in the EP France's MEP Rour Martine called statements in defense of the traditional family by Polish parliamentarians, "diatribes" and noted that they "must stop", adding that they were "repulsive" and "hateful". "These are not Europe's values," she proclaimed.

The statements from France were supported by Sophia in't Veld of the Netherlands who also accused the Polish government of "hatred" and demanded action rather than words from the EU governing body.

Italy's Giusto Catania joined in the attack on Poland adding an attack on the church as well which he said never stopped in expressing hatred toward homosexuals.

Some of the MEPs from Poland and Northern Ireland walked out of the debate as a protest, however those who remained gave a strong defence of their positions. Poland's Konrad Szymanski said that the debate was evidence that the "European Paliament can be led by the nose by a group of extremist politicians."

But the most powerful response came from Poland's Bogdan Pek. "This was an artificial piece of theatre," he said. "An attempt to carry out an assault on a particular member state that a bunch of liberals and lefties disapprove of." Pek continued, "For God's sake, in the recent histories of your countries there has been persecution - persecution of Jews for example who took refuge in Poland."

"Poland is a tolerant, hospitable country. It is absurd to suggest that Poland is an island of intolerance in Europe. That is an insult and a lie. A cynical manipulation which is designed to pull the wool over the European public's eyes. I protest against that form of manipulation and falsehood," he concluded.

Despite such a spirited defence, comments by the leaders of EU governing body indicated that there was to be no tolerance for ideas which would view homosexual acts as unnatural. European commissioner for equal opportunity, Vladimir Spidla, said of the proposed Polish educational legislation banning promotion of homosexuality: "Such a law, if it were to emerge, would be in contradiction with the European human rights convention and the EU charter on fundamental rights."

In the resolution passed today, MEPs urge the Polish authorities "to refrain from proposing or adopting a law as described by the Vice Prime Minister and Polish Minister of education". They demand a fact-finding mission into Poland regarding 'homophobia', and threaten court action on Poland or any other member nation unwilling to submit to EU rights conventions which they have interpreted to disallow a government from forbidding homosexual promotion in schools.

In Warsaw, Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski commented on the EP resolution saying: "Nobody is limiting gay rights in Poland. However, if we're talking about not having homosexual propaganda in Polish schools, I fully agree with those who feel this way - such propaganda should not be in schools; it definitely doesn't serve youth well."
