"Homosexuality is just one form in which the brokenness of humanity reveals itself, along with
greed, hatred, fear, dishonesty and intemperance."
"All Americans should shudder when homosexual activists routinely use the tactics of threats, intimidation, blackmail
and deception to strangle a free and open exchange on homosexual behavior."
"We believe [the ideas of gay activists]
are dangerous to society at large and to the family in particular. Nevertheless,
their advocates seem to be everywhere at once. The gay lifestyle is aggressively
promoted throughout culture, especially in television sitcoms, Hollywood movies and on
"That agenda includes teaching prohomosexual concepts in the public schools, redefining
the family to represent "any circle of people who love each other," approval of
homosexual adoption, legitimizing same-sex marriage, and securing special rights for
those who identify themselves as gay. Those ideas must be opposed, even though to do
so is to expose oneself to the charge of being 'homophobic'."
"How would you respond if, without notice to you, your
child was required to attend a school assembly where homosexual
and lesbian sex acts were graphically described -- and
your child was not permitted to leave?"
"The battle has moved to California, where homosexual activists are vigorously
seeking to implement their agenda. Once again, their ultimate goal is 'gay marriage'. If it
becomes legal in California, gay activists will have achieved most of their objectives in
one fell swoop. And as our most populous state goes, so goes the nation."
"Studies also show a high degree of destructive behavior among homosexuals, including alcohol, drug abuse and emotional
and physical violence."
"There are in fact only two traits which all homosexuals share in common: erotic attraction to members of the same sex,
and same-gender sexual behavior. Neither of these traits are innate or immutable. Both are subject to rational moral
censure and, therefore, do not constitute a sufficient basis for legal protection."

"We believe that homosexuality is unhealthy, immoral and destructive to
individuals, families and societies."
"Homosexuality is a life-controlling addiction like smoking or drug abuse."
"Homosexual books, magazines, and newspapers are filled with bitter and often
obscene denunciations of religion in general and Christianity in particular."
"Homosexual activists want to promote the flouting of traditional sexual
prohibitions at the earliest possible age. If you can persuade young people to
ignore parental and religious warnings against premarital sex, then you
will have a much easier time convincing them that condemnation of
homosexuality is likewise a rule to be broken. According to overwhelming medical
evidence, homosexuals are typically very promiscuous, with many averaging
several hundred sexual partners over a lifetime. Some even report having
thousands of partners. For this reason, they want to encourage a promiscuous society -- and
the best place to start is with a young and credulous captive audience in
the public schools."
"Once brought into the homosexual fold, these teens are then plugged into a network
of dysfunctional relationships that are, by nature, destructive of
self-esteem. They are furthermore introduced to an array of dangerous
behaviors, including anal intercourse, sado-masochism, sexual
promiscuity, and substance abuse."
"Sodomy laws could be used to prevent the advocacy of homosexuality
among children in schools by setting a legal and social marker teachers could not
transgress. Their absence opens schools to the possibility of introducing the behavior as
acceptable to children."
"Lesbian culture is rife with anti-male sentiment, as evidenced by hostility
toward men in lesbian publications and in public references."
"The purpose of groups such as Exodus International is to reach out to those who desire
freedom from homosexuality and other forms of sexual brokenness such as
cross-dressing, transsexuality, pedophilia, and sex addiction."
taken from the Concerned Women for America site at
"Society has seen fit to withhold its blessing and special protection from other shared behaviors
-- murder, theft and fraud, and "sexual orientations" like necrophilia, bestiality and
pedophilia. When people act out these behaviors, society reacts with revulsion and
punishment. These "orientations" obviously represent a clear and present danger to the
physical, mental, cultural and spiritual health of the citizenry. Protected class status
bestowed on homosexuals as an entire class would represent the first awarding of such
status based solely on behavior -- a frightening precedent."
"It's time to stand up to the onslaught against traditional values in this country. The truth of
the matter is that homosexuality is an immoral behavior that can be changed. Under no
circumstances should it be given society’s stamp of approval."
"Homosexual rights ordinances interfere with the right to
hire men and women with sound moral principles to
teach our children. They threaten the right of schools to to
hire teachers of high moral caliber."
"Homosexual activists are engaged in a campaign of
misinformation and lies. They are demanding special
privilege instead of legitimate rights. The Employment
Non-Discrimination Act is is a wolf in sheep's clothing."
"We have a government that encourages and endorses the
lifestyle at all levels, including schools. Through AIDS
education, the government spent millions of dollars to sensitize
kids to the plight of the homosexual. It's 'tolerance', it's
"Polls among Gen-Xers reveal that so-called homosexual
rights legislation enjoys substantial support among the
young. That is troubling. Those people are going to be
running the country in another 10 or 20 years."
"It appears that the radical homosexual movement is
winning this cultural war. Basically, they have no opposition
except for pro-family moral Americans. If it were not for
the Reggie Whites who are willing to stand up and say, "This
is wrong" -- and take the arrows -- it would have been done
"Since 1973, the homosexual agenda has permeated every
aspect of society, including your workplace and the
education of your children. By using humor and sympathy,
they have carefully manipulated the minds and hearts of
Americans into believing their lifestyle is normal. One has
only to look at the television show, "Ellen" and the many
homosexual characters on other shows to see the
"The values we teach children today will determine how
tomorrow will look. Unfortunately, homosexual activists
know this all too well. Parents must remain vigilant to
efforts in the school that, in the name of "tolerance," promote
a sexual behavior that Scriptures and traditional morality
regard as deviant."
"The National Organization for Women and the sisters who
hail their ideology are not interested in coalescing around
traditional American principles. Their agenda is unabashedly
liberal, anti-family, and anti-God."

"I hear a lot about 'The debate over gay rights...'
Rights. RIGHTS! RIGHTS? For sexual deviant . . . sexual behavior there
are now rights. That's what I'm worried about with the pedophilia and the bestiality and the
sadomasochism and the cross-dressing. Is this all going to be 'rights' too, to deviant sexual behavior? It's
deviant sexual behavior. Why does deviant sexual behavior get rights? Don't understand that to start out with."
"When you're trying to establish a world order that is deviancy becomes the norm and everything is OK and there
should be no judgment, the first thing you have to do is either remove kids from their homes to brainwash them - like
if there were government daycare centers or mandatory pre-schools from the age of 3. Take kids out, have a curriculum which
brainwashes them in any way, or the second thing is dissolve, weaken the relationship between parents and children so
there's a lack of respect and sense of authority, so the teachers are now in collusion with the kids against
"Propagandizing in our school! There's no agenda? 'It's Elementary!' An incredible videotape by two
lesbians which is supposed to be about teaching kids not to breach anybody's civil rights. That was a lie. It's so blatant, it's
obvious. It went around many PBS stations. It was a propagandizing piece to have children approve of
homosexuality as young as in kindergarten, and any expressions of a different, opposing opinion was discounted
