Gay Agenda

OPINION
June 13, 2012 | By Nathaniel Frank
A study released this week suggests that, contrary to what years of academic research has said, children of gay parents actually fare worse than others. According to the study's author, Mark Regnerus, a professor at University of Texas at Austin, the research "clearly reveals that children appear most apt to succeed well as adults - on multiple counts and across a variety of domains - when they spend their entire childhood with their married mother and father. " Regnerus says that his study shows stark differences between such children and those with gay parents: the latter are more likely to be unemployed, consider suicide, use drugs, have an STD and fall victim to sexual abuse.

We live in a time of plague such as has never been visited on our nation. We can pretend it does not exist, or exists for others, and carry on as if we do not know. But we do. We know that AIDS is spread by several different methods. We also know that a cure is not in sight and may never be. What most people do not know is that the gay agenda is running rampant in the hierarchy of Ventura County government and organizations. It has even spread into the churches. We have the potential to slow down the AIDS epidemic by speaking out against a recent request by the Affirmative Action Commission that our county Board of Supervisors consider same-sex marriages as legal, something that will only cost taxpayers more of their hard-earned money.

WASHINGTON -- A children's book about two male penguins that hatch and parent a chick was pulled from library shelves in Loudoun County, Va., elementary schools this month after a parent complained that it promoted a gay agenda. The decision by Supt. Edgar B. Hatrick III led many parents and gay rights advocates to rush to the penguins' defense. Many say the school system should not have allowed one complaint to limit children's literary choices.

Rock music has frequently served as a vehicle for social issues, so Extra Fancy's mission to rock its way out of the closet and into the popular culture spotlight isn't surprising. Yet the rock arena has traditionally been a boys' club that excludes gays. Extra Fancy's strategy is to tackle straight-up rock 'n' roll with an aggressively gay agenda--as the Los Angeles quartet did to the best of its ability at Spaceland on Friday night.

God was in the eye of the beholder Thursday morning at the San Francisco Civic Center Plaza, where hundreds of spectators gathered to watch the California Supreme Court on a massive outdoor TV screen and wrangle over the sanctity of marriage. The occasion: Attorneys from both sides of the gay-marriage debate were arguing the merits -- or demerits -- of Proposition 8, the November ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage in California.

Chick-fil-A is “very much supportive of the family,” according to Dan Cathy, president of the popular fast food chain. That is, “the biblical definition of the family unit,” he said. And that doesn't include Adam and Steve, suggests Cathy, whose father S. Truett Cathy founded the Atlanta-based company. In a new interview with Baptist Press , Cathy puts on the record what critics say his company's actions have indicated for years. “Well, guilty as charged,” he said in the interview when asked about Chick-fil-A's backing of families led by a man and a woman.
