My side did not start this fight – the other side did. But as long as they keep raining missiles down on me, my family, and my friends, I will fight this with every breath I have. I refer to the ongoing and relentless campaign of aggression against faith, family and freedom by the militant homosexual lobby.
For years now I have been documenting this constant war which is being waged against those who value marriage and family, those who value freedom, and those who are people of faith. All three have been mercilessly hammered by a group of belligerent and antagonistic activists who will not stop until we all submit to their agenda.
And increasingly we find secular left governments which have jumped into bed with the activists, forcing all naysayers to comply with the new world order, or else face the consequences. Mark Steyn has just penned a piece on this, and a few quotes are well worth sharing here. He certainly hits the nail on the head with this one:
“The bigger the Big Government, the smaller everything else: In Sweden, expressing a moral objection to homosexuality is illegal, even on religious grounds, even in church, and a pastor minded to cite the more robust verses of Leviticus would risk four years in jail. In Canada, the courts rule that Catholic schools must allow gay students to take their same-sex dates to the prom. The secular state’s Bureau of Compliance is merciless to apostates to a degree even your fire-breathing imams might marvel at.”
And again: “Liberals take the same view as the proprietors of the Dar al-Islam: Once they hold this land, they hold it forever.” Exactly right. Big governments which have become subservient to radical activist agendas are a danger to all who value freedom and democracy.
And we see both being whittled away time and time again. My new book chronicles many of these cases, but it is already out of date. Plenty of new examples of homosexual intimidation and bullying have occurred since then. It is a full time job just keeping up with all these cases.
Thus a second edition of my book will chronicle even more such examples, but let me here just offer you a few of them. They are only the tip of the iceberg, but they very nicely demonstrate the war we are in, and how the other side will not rest until it has every one of us bowing in obeisance to its demands.
With so many examples to choose from, and so little space here, let me just offer the headline, date, and perhaps the opening paragraph of each recent news item. I will go back just a few months and move up to more recent times:
“MPs vote to stop civil servants refusing to carry out gay weddings”
November 15, 2011
“Dutch MPs voted on Tuesday afternoon for a change in the law to prevent civil servants refusing to conduct gay marriages.”
“Lesbian couple mulls action against Christian wedding cake baker”

December 2, 2011
“After losing at a lower court, a counseling student at a public university in Georgia who was threatened with expulsion because she expressed discomfort with counseling homosexuals, is pleading her case before an Appeals Court this week.”
“Macy’s fires woman for refusing ‘transgender’ man access to women’s fitting room”
December 8, 2011
“A woman has been fired from a Macy’s department store for denying a man dressed as a woman access to the women’s fitting room. ‘I had to either comply with Macy’s or comply with God,’ said Natalie Johnson.”

December 22, 2011
“By 2013 prospective teachers in Ontario will be required to undergo focused training in ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender diversity,’ says a cabinet minister in Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal government.”
“A New Jersey judge ruled against a Christian retreat house that refused to allow a same-sex civil union ceremony to be conducted on its premises, ruling the Constitution allows ‘some intrusion into religious freedom to balance other important societal goals’.”
January 12, 2012
“Amsterdam chief rabbi suspended for gay stance”
January 18, 2012
“The Orthodox Jewish community of Amsterdam suspended its US-born chief rabbi on Tuesday for cosigning a declaration which said homosexuality was a ‘treatable’ inclination.”
“Attorney Says School Threatened, Punished Boy Who Opposed Gay Adoption”
January 24, 2012
“A 15-year-old Wisconsin boy who wrote an op-ed opposing gay adoptions was censored, threatened with suspension and called ignorant by the superintendent of the Shawano School District, according to an attorney representing the child.”
These are just a few examples from overseas which have occurred in the past three months. Many more could be mentioned. And don’t get me started on the battleground here in Australia. We also find plenty of examples to choose from down under.
Many of these recent examples I have already written about, but who can forget as but one amazing case, the war declared on the greatest tennis player in the world, Margaret Court. The activists were foaming at the mouth over her, and demanded that the arena named after her be called something else.
So what was her horrific crime? She simply said what almost everyone but the militants knows: marriage is between a man and a woman. For simply uttering this now un-PC thought, the wrath of the activists was visited upon her big time.
And these are the guys who go on and on about tolerance and acceptance. Yeah right. I am still waiting to see even a skerrick of tolerance and acceptance coming from these gays. But that is not what they are really all about. Like Big Government, they are about power, domination and control.
They want everyone to be subservient to their militant agenda, and anyone who dares to differ will be fined, arrested, jailed, lose their employment, or face other heavy-handed sanctions. No wonder there is such a backlash against this totalitarian bunch.
People have had enough of what has rightly been called the gaystapo. And its Big Government allies are also generating plenty of opposition now. I encourage you to read the rest of Steyn’s article. It has to do with Obama’s heavy-handed war against all those who differ from his pro-death policies.
This seems to be rallying religious groups like nothing else before, and is waking up a sleeping giant. Millions of pro-faith, pro-family, and pro-freedom people are saying ‘enough is enough’. It sure is, and now is the time to stand up and act, before we lose it all.
