New information provides hard evidence of Joe Straus’ pro-abortion and anti-family-values agenda.

The fight to replace liberal, pro-abortion Joe Straus as Texas Speaker of the House continues. If you have not contacted your state representative, please do so and encourage them to vote for a true conservative for Speaker. You can find who represents you here:

The Peter Morrison Report Newsletter (Subscribe HERE) had an interesting Alert on Multiculturalism in Texas schools:

Recently the conservative website WorldNetDaily featured a shocking report from someone in the process of applying for teaching certification in Texas. As part of the certification process, he was required to read several extremely disturbing online articles.

He chose to remain anonymous for fear of being punished for speaking out, because there are radicals deeply entrenched in the Texas educational system who don’t want this information to be made public.

Some of the materials that this prospective teacher was forced to read if he wanted to be certified to teach in a public school had absolutely nothing to do with education as most people understand it. Instead, their purpose was instilling in future teachers the idea that their role in kids’ lives is to act as agents of “social change” in the classroom, all in the name of “multiculturalism.”

Multiculturalism is one of those liberal buzzwords that are so dangerous precisely because they can mean whatever the speaker or writer wants them to mean. In the past few decades, innocuous sounding terms like “social justice” and “celebrating diversity” have become code words used to sneak a radical left wing agenda past an unsuspecting public. Extreme liberals now want to use teachers to indoctrinate our children in the name of multiculturalism.

On one of the websites that is required reading for future teachers, there’s a discussion of what multiculturalism means. Even this site admits that there’s no fixed meaning; but all the definitions they propose make it clear just what multiculturalism is all about – indoctrinating our kids with a radical left-wing agenda. One of their suggested definitions is “education change as part of a larger societal transformation in which we more closely explore and criticize the oppressive foundations of society and how education serves to maintain the status quo — foundations such as white supremacy, capitalism, global socioeconomic situations, and exploitation.”

This ideological jargon makes it perfectly clear what our kids will be learning if we don’t put a stop to this. They’ll be taught that white people are a bunch of racists; free enterprise is unjust and socialism means fairness for all; and the main reason third world nations are impoverished is because they’ve been exploited by greedy, oppressive Western countries. In other words, instead of being given a real education, our children will be taught the philosophy espoused by Barack Obama and his former pastor Jeremiah Wright, who famously said “white folk’s greed runs a world in need.”

That’s just the beginning. If there’s one trait all left wingers share, it’s their unrelenting hatred of traditional family values. The new “certification standards” that liberals want to impose on Texas teachers are no exception. Future teachers are warned that they must not harbor any feelings of “heterosexism,” and that one of their main functions as a teacher will be to eliminate this same “heterosexism” in their students. This is apparently just as important as teaching reading, writing and arithmetic, if not more so, because schools now serve a higher purpose, which is “the transformation of society” to eliminate all forms of “prejudice” and “oppression.”

Heterosexism is the radical new PC term for the belief that homosexual conduct is immoral, or in any way inferior to heterosexual behavior. It’s now established liberal doctrine that homosexuality and heterosexuality are moral equivalents which should be treated exactly alike, and anyone who disagrees is guilty of “hate.” Of course, traditional Americans don’t view homosexuality as being on an equal plane with opposite sex attraction, and part of the teacher’s job is to eradicate this “privileging” of heterosexuality in the minds of our children. The ultimate goal is the very “transformation of society”, in the words of the radical left wing website future teachers are required to read.

What would a “transformed society” look like to these people? Look no further than a book published in October of last year by Sarah Schulman to see what they have in mind for us. Schulman is a lesbian activist, as well as a professor at City University of New York, College of Staten Island. She’s also a Fellow at New York University, and is considered one of the leaders in the fight against “homophobia” and “heterosexism” in America. Here’s what one reviewer says of her book, Ties That Bind: Familial Homophobia and Its Consequences: “In her book, Schulman offers a strategy for dealing with homophobic trauma: Homophobia should be identified as a sickness, with families court-ordered into treatment programs.” To be clear, Schulman is not talking about people who physically assault homosexuals. She’s talking about people who regard homosexuality as immoral. She says they’re “sick” and they should be forced into “treatment” until they’re “cured.”

That’s just one aspect of the “transformation of society” agenda Texas teachers are now expected to take part in. These social engineers want Texas schools to teach this moral insanity to our innocent children, in order to lead the next generation into their brave new world, where free enterprise is oppression, Mom and Dad are racists, America and the rest of the Western World are the cause of third world poverty, and Christianity and traditional moral values are labeled as hate.

It’s imperative that we raise our voices against our schools being used to perpetrate this outrageous radical agenda. This sort of stuff is the last thing our future teachers should be reading, but some of them are being forced to if they want to become teachers. When WorldNetDaily contacted the Texas Education Agency about this, their spokesperson downplayed it, saying these new “standards” aren’t statewide; Texas schools are divided into 20 Education Service Center regions, and so it’s only a regional issue, as if that settled the matter.

That’s not good enough. None of the Education Service Centers should be requiring prospective teacher to read through this radical left wing propaganda in order to become certified to teach. They shouldn’t even be recommending this sort of material in the first place. Our children are our most precious heritage; they’re not pawns to be programmed and used by liberals to accomplish their radical goals of “transforming society.”

Contact Texas Education Commissioner Robert Scott and demand that he put a stop to this practice of forcing prospective teachers to read these materials, no matter where in Texas it’s happening:

UPDATED: See Below

I dunno.  Perhaps a better question might be, “Why does Megan Fox hate herself so much?

  • airhead brainless movie chickShe thinks she’s  “sexy and intelligent”, which is usually a really good indicator that while you’re the former, you’re probably NOT the latter.

You can be sexy and be intelligent and be taken seriously, or you can be sexy and you can be out at clubs every night and not be [taken seriously].”

After a moment of reflection, she adds, “I haven’t gone completely insane — but it might happen soon.”

  • She’s a pretty miserable person who hates where she came from. During an interview for one of the “Transformers” movies, she was quoted as saying :

” . . . if Megatron wanted to kill our planet, she suggested they ‘negotiate’. “Let him have the white trash, redneck, antigay, and bible thumpers . . . “

  • Considering this next quote, you can see why she might.

Fox and friends (her cast members and the director) addressed the audience before the screening.

“I actually was not the shit in high school” Fox told the audience. “I went to a small Christian School. I ate lunch in the bathroom because I was afraid of getting picked on in the cafeteria.” When the audience began to react positively, Fox shot back “it’s ok, yeah, Fuck ‘em!”

Well, Wikipedia says that she’s bisexual and a strong personality. Neither trait is going to win you any friends at a Conservative Christian school; and particularly if you have tattoos all over your arms and back.

I’m just sayin’ here. Plus when you have a teenager with a “strong personality” drawing attention to herself with tattoos, you’re going to get attention. Just don’t be surprised if you don’t like it.

  • Having a prima-donna reputation doesn’t help either. And when your castmates write an “open letter” bashing your stupidity, you’ve REALLY burned some bridges there:

Megan has been late to the sets many times. She goes through the motions that make her exude this sense of misery. We’ve heard the A.D’s piped over the radio that Megan won’t walk from her trailer until John Turturro walks first! John’s done seventy-five movies and she’s made two!

Never expect Megan to attend any of the 15 or so crew parties like all the other actors have. And then there’s the classless night she blew off The Royal Prince of Jordan who made a special dinner for all the actors. She doesn’t know that one of the grips daughters wanted to visit their daddy’s work to meet Megan, but he wouldn’t let them come because he told them “she is not nice.”

The press certainly doesn’t know her most famous line. On our first day in Egypt, the Egyptian government wouldn’t let us shoot because of a permit problem as the actors got ready in make up at the Four Seasons Hotel. Michael tried to make the best of it; he wanted to take the cast and crew on a private tour of the famous Giza pyramids. God hold us witness, Megan said, “I can’t believe Michael is fucking forcing us to go to the fucking pyramids!”

Megan_Fox,_Hope_and_FaithAnd then EOnline  had THIS today on Fox’s new film:

You speak of Jennifer’s Body. And boy did it bomb.

The movie supposedly—supposedly—cost only $16 million to make, a figure that analysts highly doubt, given the rising-star cast and the fact that the screenwriter is Diablo Cody, who won an Oscar for Juno. But Body grossed only about $6.8 million this weekend.

That, children, is what’s known as a bloodbath.

As Dean Wormer said in Animal House, “Drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.” I might paraphrase, “Slutty and stupid is no way to go through life, girl.”

The road to Hollywood is paved with actresses who slept their way to the top (or were asked to) and ended up on the ash-heap of histo Marilu Henner. Linda Fiorentino. Jessica Biel.

Ick. Not the Prom Court you wanted to be queen of, was it?

Grow up. Got to college. Get a life and a degree. Please — before you end a tattooed skank wondering what happened to your career.

And try, just try — to have an open mind to religion. You might find Christians have something you’re looking for; or desperately need.


NOTE: While I was composing this post, I was watching an E! special on the Love Boat, and somehow managed to transpose Ms. Tewes’ name into the list.  That is NOT what I meant to say in any way, shape, or form, and I apologize.

I’m actually something of a fan of Ms. Tewes, and more than a little horrified I put this into the post.  If she’s seen this, I extend my apologies to her as well.

Dang! I used to LIKE this flavor! Something else I won’t be buying again soon:

Ben & Jerry’s Goes “Hubby Hubby” for Vermont Gay Weddings

While activists are still hard at work on repealing Prop 8 and marriage equality, wedding bells clanged for same-sex unions for the first time in Vermont today.

Vermont, home to maple syrup and birthplace of that other magic elixir, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, ignored the “who will change his name” debate, and just went ahead and did it. The artist (ice cream so good it’s art) formerly known as the flavor “Chubby Hubby” has a new married name: “Hubby Hubby,” in support of all the newly married couples.

Don’t expect to see pints in your grocer’s freezer today: like all change, sometimes it’s slow in coming (labels will take up to 18 months to reflect the shift.)

Free cone day more than once a year? Not one of them.

No there Won’t be “twice as many nuts” in the new version; although I there’s a few nuts at the factory.

See, here’s the problem: it’s called “relatability.” People will buy things or support actors they feel they can relate to. Make a rich ice cream that tastes good with a cute name, and lost of people will buy it. Make a rich ice cream that supports a cause less than 20% of the American public believes in, and watch the sales go down the tubes.

Kinda sad.

On “The View” yesterday Barbara Walters and the girls got into their impressions of Sacha Baron Cohen’s new alleged comedy, Bruno.” (For those not aware, “Bruno” is an Austrian TV host who is gay — and that’s quite the understatement.

Watch the whole clip. It’s not every day you get to see Whoopi Goldberg discussing 12-foot penises on broadcast TV:

Okay; a few comments before my own experience here.

A commenter at the Jezebel.com article didn’t care much for it, either. In fact, most of the commenters found it alternately disturbing or annoying — if they weren’t :

I really had high hopes for this movie. (SOME GRAPHIC SPOILERS BELOW)

Within the first ten minutes you get engrossed in a BDSM scene, the penises are blurred and the butt-holes, but it even puts Hentai to shame. Its really graphic, not very funny, and they also ruined my idea of a good time with a machine that has a sex toy attached that makes the basic in-out motion. I am pretty sure they also blurred out a fisting attachment too.

Barbara got it sooooo right, there is a scene where Bruno was going to have a test group to screen for his potential TV show and you see a huge penis flopping up and down and then doing circles akin to what tassels do on boob pasties.

Bruno has this whole thing that he is looking for love, but he considers having a classic BDSM slave love. Then there are even more graphic BDSM scenes, they must have used like 100 pieces of bondage equipment/gear etc.

I have NO problem with homosexuality, but I almost felt that “Love” portrayed in this movie was only Sado-machochistic lust and also mostly superficial that it was an insult to true gay love.

Very Very disappointing follow-up to Borat which I felt revealed a lot of anti-semitism amongst other prejudices.

Twitter commentators were of a similar mind; didn’t care much for it, . . .

i saw 5mins of bruno wasnt really feeling it shit was gay i walked out the movie theaters and went to see another movie anybody like bruno?

. . . or were busy attacking those who didn’t like it:

JJMarino Ukraine banned Bruno because it damages the morals of society.This from the country whose main export is stripers that blow u for an xtra 50

Nice. You kiss your mom with that mouth?

I haven’t been to see Bruno, and don’t really have any inclination to now. Box Office Mojo has noted that the grosses for the movie have steadily fallen off every day:

Bruno grosses

So, the movie has no legs. As more and more people see the movie and word of mouth (you should pardon the pun) gets around, the grosses will continue to dive for the basement.

sacha baron cohen bruno horseHeh. Now that’s funny.

My personal experience with Borat; while I’m not planning to see the movie anymore (and, yes, I was at one time) aco-worker did — and walked out within the first 20 minutes.  The manager couldn’t give her a refund (first-run first weekend policy of the chain she saw the movie at), but he did give her two passes for every person wanting a refund.

On the Friday she saw Bruno the movie was playing on four screens at the sixteen-plex.  Saturday it was on two screens.  As of this morning — just one. Screens in San Antonio have decreased by about a third.  Strangely, Box Office mojo’s site doesn’t record a loss of screens, but per-screen income has dropped 80% over the weekend.

Don’t waste your time.  Go see Harry Potter instead — or catch a third showing of Star Trek.

Oh, Waaah, Waah, Waaaaah!  If ever there was someone for whom the rhyme “sticks and stones” was intended, <a href=”http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/2009-06-24-perez-hilton-slur_N.htm?csp=34″>HERE he is:</a>

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Perez Hilton isn’t apologizing for using a gay slur.

perez hilton black eyeThe openly gay gossip blogger said in a statement Tuesday that he would continue to say things upsetting to gay and straight people alike. The comments came after the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation called for Hilton to apologize Monday for unleashing the word during an altercation at a nightclub with Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am.

“I wish none of it had happened,” said Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira. “I can’t take it back. I did what I thought was best at the moment to stand up for myself in a nonviolent yet still assertive way. Clearly, I am not homophobic. Also, I am not nor have I ever claimed to be a spokesperson for the gay community.”

Rationalize much, Mario? I think I just burst a blood vessel in my eye reading that; an openly gay man ho has a website that gets hits in the millions ‘is not a spokesman for the gay community”???

Yeah. Riiiiiiight, buddy. However, if he hadn’t just done that, he might have given rise to the “Perez Hilton Defense” during his Hate Speech trial; “I was doing it as a notable member of the Gay community, your honor.”

Hilton said he used the gay slur because he thought it would be the worst thing he could possibly say to will.i.am. after the musician told the blogger not to write about his band on his website. Police charged the band’s tour manager with assault for allegedly punching Hilton during the confrontation at a Toronto nightclub early Monday morning.

“For someone in our own community to use it to attack another person by saying that it is ‘the worst possible thing that thug would ever want to hear’ is incredibly dangerous,” said GLAAD media programs senior director Rashad Robinson. “It legitimizes use of a slur that is often linked to violence against our community.”

And still the Toronto authorities are silent on Hate Speech charges against our boy Mario. Hey, Canada: I you can charge Mark Steyn for simply saying Islam is a religion that teaches violence, what are you waiting for here?

now if you really want to have a laugh, Google his video rants about the incident.  I won’t link here because I don’t want to give him the traffic.  Noteable Quote: “I blog about drama in other people’s lives — I don’t need this drama in mine!!!”

Swear to God, he said that.

This absolutely astonishes me; not for the fact that it happened (some Gays tend to be emotional and volatile), but due to the sheer hypocrisy involved:

Perez-Hilton-King-of-the-Nancy-BoysTORONTO – Police have charged the tour manager of the Black Eyed Peas with assault after he allegedly punched celebrity blogger Perez Hilton outside a Toronto nightclub. Hilton said he got into an argument with band members Fergie and will.i.am at the Cobra nightclub early Monday morning and was punched outside by Polo Molina, the band’s tour manager. They were at the club following a Sunday night video awards show.

Molina turned himself in and has been charged with assaulting Hilton, Toronto Police Constable Tony Vella said. Molina is due in court Aug. 5.

Okay, so far so good. You punch somebody, that’s assault. You should be charged. But wait; there’s more!

Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, complained about the incident on the microblogging site Twitter. He tweeted at 4 a.m.: “I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke.”

Hilton, who is openly gay, said in interview with The Associated Press that he called will.i.am a “faggot,” a gay slur, inside the club after the musician told the blogger not to write about his band on his Web site.

“He was like ‘You need to respect me.’ He was in my face. He was obviously trying to intimidate me and scare me,” Hilton said. “I was like ‘I don’t need to respect you. I don’t respect you and I did say this, and I knew that it would be the worst thing I could possibly say to him because he was acting the way he was. I said ‘You know what, I don’t respect you and you’re gay and stop being such a faggot.'”

Okay, Full Stop here. Perez Hilton admits — in his own words, that he used a gay slur with will.i.am. They had an argument, and Hilton called him a gay slur.

Will.i.am said in a video posting on dip.dive.com that he came to Hilton with respect and was called a “faggot.”

And will.i.am confirms this. Is will.i.am gay? Who cares — Perez Hilton slurred him, and both parties admit it.

Hilton, who was at the club with Lady Gaga, said he then left the club and was punched from behind. The pop stars and the blogger were among celebrities in Toronto for the MuchMusic Video Awards on Sunday night. A spokeswoman for the Black Eyed Peas declined comment.

angry mountieSo, he doesn’t really KNOW who hit him from behind, because he didn’t see the punch, obviously.  Plus, earlier reports had Hilton stating will.i.am and his bodyguards hitting him from behind.

So he has no idea who did it, really.  But he wants to press charges.  Waah, waah, waaaaah!

But . . . Hilton admits he committed a Hate Crime by calling will.i.am a “faggot”. In oh-so-politically correct Canada this is a very serious thing — a Felony, actually.

I’m wondering when Canada will arrest Perez Hilton for a Hate Crime.  Not that I’m holding my breath . . . but I think it would be a hoot to see this guy banned from the country for be a Hateful Person, or whatever they call them up there.

All together, sing with me — Waah, Waah, Waaaahhhhhhhhh!!!

Some people just hold grudges; or (as my grandmother used to say) “some people have such small, lonely, pitiful lives they have nothing better to do than try to make other people miserable.”

Hence Perez Hilton.

And, apparently, some of the people on the Miss California committee as well:

LOS ANGELES – Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, who stirred up a hornet’s nest of controversy when she said gays shouldn’t be allowed to marry, got the word from pageant poobah Donald Trump on Wednesday: “You’re fired.”

Trump and other pageant leaders said Prejean was being sacked not because of her controversial remarks but because she hadn’t been holding up her end of the agreement she signed when she entered the pageant.

“This was a decision based solely on contract violations, including Ms. Prejean’s unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization,” the California pageant’s executive director, Keith Lewis, said in a statement. Lewis had complained at a news conference last month that Prejean was skipping Miss California USA events while speaking out against gay marriage at unsanctioned appearances.

After the complaints reached Trump, who owns Miss California USA’s parent organization, the mogul decided to give her a second chance and keep her on. On Wednesday he changed his mind and sided with Lewis.

“I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so,” Trump said in a statement. “Unfortunately it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen.”

(Prejean) . . . denied being derelict in her post-pageant duties.

“I’ve tried to reach out to them and I’ve done several appearances and I’m going to be presenting at the Special Olympics this weekend as an honorary guest,” Prejean told the TV show. “I mean, I’ve been cooperating with them. I don’t see why this is happening.”

One source that was quoted in passing on Fox News stated that Carrie had as many as 45 — that’s forty-five — appearance requests for Carrie in May alone. And May is the month most college kids have Final Exams.

Miss USA **IS** supposed to be a freaking “Scholarship Program,” is it not?

And one of those “requests” was for Playboy Magazine to talk to Prejean about a semi-nude pictoral — Ikid you not! Did not the Miss California and Miss USA boards just give her hell about her art photos not a month ago? And then they turn around and try to get her to pose for damned Playboy?

Make no mistake; this was a set-up from the word go. They couldn’t get her before, but they damned sure got her now.

HERE is how you let Donald Trump know how you feel about this:

snail mail:  725 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10022

phone:  212-832-2000

fax:  212-935-0141

Will Carrie Prejean be able to get her crown back?  No, I doubt it.  I doubt she’d want it, really, at this point.  As someone commented on Twitter, “she’s already famous, and for all the right reasons.”  Exactly so.

But Donald Trump will know how I feel about his decision to dismiss her.  And he will know I don’t intend to get into his ground-level MLM opportunity, either.

And I’ll be praying for Carrie Prejean.  She would appreciate that, I’m sure.  Join me in that.

The Jawa Report has this excellent little article about how Perez Hilton has changed his mind about gay men:

Perez Hilton Has Convinced Me…

gay-pride-indexfrontpage_thumbnail…that it’s just wrong to try to hold a moderate position on homosexual issues.

The continued vicious persecution of Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean clearly demonstrates that most gay men are too mentally unstable and utterly self-absorbed to function in society.

Heretofore I’ve followed a “live and let live” philosophy regarding homosexuality. It’s not for me, but I don’t want to see people persecuted for their sexuality, though I’ve never been comfortable with the 1970s political decision on the part of the American Psychiatric Association to pretend that homosexuality is a “lifestyle preference” rather than a mental illness. I viewed the resulting pretense that homosexuality could not be treated as similar to the controversy over whether or not the deaf should receive cochlear implants – misguided, but up to the individuals involved.

In fact, homosexuality is treatable; though the extent that treatment helps and the incidence of recidivism is open to debate.

Miss USANote for record: I’ve got a Bachlerors in Psychology and a year of post-grad work. I can’t disagree with a thing he’s said about homosexuality and psychology. I’ve been receiving a few (very few, thanks) e-mails from gay men about my previous articles on this subject. They agree as well.

This is NOT about Carrie Prejean. It’s entirely about a very, very small, very vocal, very self-aggrandizing group of gay men who can’t wait to self-promote themselves into impossible positions, and who cry like spoiled little girls when they don’t get their way.

Well worth your time to read. Take the time to read all the way down to click through and also read “this truly horrifying link” that will leave you shaking your head.

As a nurse who watches people die of AIDS every week in the hospital, it sure did me.

One of the best posts summarizing the Carrie Prejean controversy I’ve seen yet, written by Gay Patriot Blog:

To see just how far discourse on controversial social issues has declined in our culture, all you need do is watch a few liberals take on Carrie Prejean, the Miss California who likely lost the Miss USA pageant last month because she said she believed “marriage should be between a man and a woman.”

She did not attack those who believe otherwise. She did not insult them. She did not call them names. She merely offered her opinion.

Yet, for offering a view of marriage nearly identical to that of the Democratic President of the United States, she has been repeatedly ridiculed on the left. Do those who mocked her know how nasty they sound? Do they have any sense how people outside the liberal enclaves where they reside will react to such bile?

Do they realize that most people who heard Miss Prejean speak, even the great majority of those who disagree with her, would appreciate the civility with which she expressed her opinion?

Here, we have feminist Gloria Feldt engaging in the most juvenile of insults to mock and belittle this politically incorrect beauty queen. Just imagine how the media would react if a social conservative had said an advocate of abortion rights needed a “heart transplant”:

There’s a great deal more; including the despicable, despicable video of Keith Olbermann and Village Voice columnist Micheal Musto attempting to shred Ms. Prejean’s credibility and failing utterly.

You really need to read this. The Gay community is by no means a monolithic one-mindset mass.Gay Patriot Blog: get reading!

From Catholic Online (www.catholic.org)

Christian College Student Sues California College for Violation of Free Speech Rights

By Randy Sly; 2/17/2009, posted atCatholic Online (www.catholic.org)

WASHINGTON (Catholic Online) – In November, 2008 California voters again defended marriage as between one man and one woman and opposed attempts to grant legal equivalency to homosexual ‘marriage’.

A few weeks later, Jonathan Lopez did the same thing during a classroom presentation in his public speaking class at Los Angeles City College. He defended his opposition to homosexual “marriage” and gave reasons for his support of marriage as only properly between one man and one woman.

Reportedly, Lopez’s Professor abruptly stopped him, calling him a “fascist bastard” in front of the class and then prohibited him from finishing his speech.

ask-god-what-your-grade-isLater, the student approached the Professor, John Matteson, to inquire as to his grade. The faculty member then allegedly told him to “ask God what your grade is.” Lopez also reported that Matteson threatened to have him expelled when he complained about the incident with school officials.

This entire sequence of events has resulted in the filing of a Federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court pitting this flagrant violation of the Christian students rights to Free Speech under the US Constitution against the school code on so called “offensive speech”.

Studying toward his Associate of Arts degree, Lopez describes himself as a committed Christian who must speak out openly on issues as they relate to his deeply held faith.

The Los Angeles Times reported that they had contacted the Alliance Defense Fund of Scottsdale, AZ, the group representing the student. Alliance staff counsel David J. Hacker told the paper that Lopez was a victim of religious discrimination.

“He was expressing his faith during an open-ended assignment, but when the professor disagreed with some minor things he mentioned, the professor shut him down,” Hacker said. “Basically, colleges and universities should give Christian students the same rights to free expression as other students.”

Hacker reported that they had received a letter from the Dean, Allison Jones, stating that two students had been “deeply offended” by Lopez’s address, one of whom stated that “this student should have to pay some price for preaching hate in the classroom.”

The district, however, said it deemed Lopez’s complaint “extremely serious in nature” and had launched a private disciplinary process. Hacker indicated that the district’s response was insufficient. He is hoping for a jury trial.

Is this what it’s coming down to? Kids in college– supposedly institutions of higher learning, which should be encouraging the free expression of ideas — called “fascist bastards” by their professors and threatened with expulsion for expressing their religious viewpoints?

Is this not suppression of this student’s rights to worship as they choose?

Want to wager a guess as to this professor’s sexual orientation?

Talk about your Political Correctness gone terribly wrong:

Christian Nursing Home Funding Restored after “Sexual Orientation” Flap

By Hilary White

BRIGHTON, UK, February 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A UK Christian nursing care home that had been threatened with loss of funding for having the wrong opinions about homosexuality, has had its grant restored. The Brighton & Hove city council backed down as Pilgrim Homes, the 200-year-old Christian charity that runs the home in question, as well as nine others, was preparing for legal action for religious discrimination.

Good for them. Sue their politically correct butts.

In early January, it was revealed that the city council had revoked a £13,000 (Cn. $23,652.96) grant to Pilgrim Home in Egremont Place, Brighton, after elderly residents, some of whom are retired Christian missionaries, had refused to answer questions about their “sexual orientation,” saying the questions were “intrusive.” The residents were branded as being “closed to the gay community” by the council, and the home was accused of being guilty of “institutionalised homophobia.”

Now the gy who coined that quote – the “institutionalised homophobia” crap — him they should sue anyway.

The council claimed that it had been acting according to the requirements of the Labour government’s Equality legislation and Sexual Orientation Regulations.

And then blame it on the government. Sue this guy. I’m quite serious. He’s a weasel.


I think there's something "intrusive" going on here, as well.

The questionnaire that led to the controversy, which is issued to residents four times a year, asked them to reveal whether they were “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or unsure” of their sexuality. The council also had plans to invite the homosexualist activist organisation Stonewall to make a presentation at the home and had instructed the charity to include depictions of homosexuals in its promotional literature.

And forcing elderly epole to reveal their sexual orientation — and thhen forcing a gay activist organization into their homes — that’s not an “institutionalized pro-gay agenda”?

The Christian Institute’s Mike Judge said, “Elderly Christians shouldn’t be penalised just because of their religious beliefs. Christians pay their taxes too and they should have equal access to public grants without being required to drop their Christian ethos. I hope other councils take note.” He added, “There have been a number of recent cases where Christians are being treated less favourably than others. Nurses, grandparents, firemen, registrars, adoption agencies, care homes are all finding themselves in the firing line for nothing more than hold (sic) the same harmless beliefs that Christians have had for 2,000 years.” An editorial in the Daily Telegraph said that this was a case in which the concept of “respect” for homosexuality was being used to suppress the expression of religious, particularly Christian, ideas.

Don’t get me started on the threats, smears, and attempts at extortion I received last week with that “Obama and the Unicorn – Porn” stuff. I had no idea Unicorns are gay symbology.

“Religious toleration is the cornerstone of every free society, and of course it is right that faiths other than Christianity should be treated respectfully. But toleration must not become an excuse for the persecution of Christianity – which, it should not be forgotten, is still the official state religion of this country.”

“How many other cases of such stupid, blinkered and pointless ‘regulation’ are there? No one knows, but the anecdotal evidence from homes and individuals that have faced aggressively punitive action from the authorities merely for demonstrating their Christian convictions suggests that the number is far from small.”

Far from small, indeed. Very, very far.

So, here’s the Deal: Last month there was a referendum in California called “Proposition 8.” The Proposition was to amend the California Constitution to define “marriage” as being between one man and one woman. It’s something so basic it’s never really been written into law before, because it was such an accepted and assumed “given” in common law.

However, Gay Activists are assuming nothing; and are hellbent on getting their way, no matter who gets trampled in the rush. Here in the L.A. Times is a story about a popular Los Angeles eatery that’s being destroyed by Gay Activists protests:

A life thrown into turmoil by a donation for Proposition 8

lopezSteve Lopez – December 14, 2008

Margie Christoffersen didn’t make it very far into our conversation before she cracked. Chest heaving, tears streaming, she reached for her husband Wayne’s hand and then mine, squeezing as if she’d never let go. “I’ve almost had a nervous breakdown. It’s been the worst thing that’s ever happened to me,” she sobbed as curious patrons at a Farmers Market coffee shop looked on, wondering what calamity had visited this poor woman who’s an honest 6 feet tall, with hair as blond as the sun.

Well, Christoffersen was a manager at El Coyote, the Beverly Boulevard landmark restaurant that’s always had throngs of customers waiting to get inside. Many of them were gay, and Christoffersen, a devout Mormon, donated $100 in support of Proposition 8.  Last month her donation showed up on lists of “for” and “against” donors. And El Coyote became a target.

hateful-bastardsA boycott was organized on the Internet, with activists trashing El Coyote on restaurant review sites. Then came throngs of protesters, some of them shouting “shame on you” at customers. The police arrived in riot gear one night to quell the angry mob.

The mob left, but so did the customers.

Sections of the restaurant have been closed, a manager told me Friday during a very quiet lunch hour. Some of the 89 employees, many of them gay, have had their hours cut, and layoffs are looming. And Christoffersen, who has taken a voluntary leave of absence, is wondering whether she’ll ever again be able to work at the restaurant, which opened in 1931 (at 1st and La Brea) and is owned by her 92-year-old mother.

A lot of customers saw Christoffersen as the face of the restaurant. She was the hostess who roamed from table to table with a pitcher of water, refilling glasses and schmoozing with friends.

Christoffersen, raised Mormon by her late father, told me she has no problem with gay people.  “I love them like everybody else.”

Fred Karger said on his Californians Against Hate website, Karger has been outing Prop. 8 supporters, but he thinks Christoffersen’s small personal donation didn’t warrant such a backlash against El Coyote. Karger also spoke out against the resignation of a Sacramento theater director who gave $1,000 to Yes on 8 and happens to be Mormon.

The focus should be on the Mormon Church, Karger said, and on people and businesses that gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to Yes on 8.   Now business is off about 30%, Wayne said. Margie tried to smooth things over last month by inviting gay clients to a free lunch to talk it over, but she left in tears when asked if she would write a check to the group challenging Prop. 8.

I sat on the patio with Wayne and two other El Coyote managers — Arnoldo Archila and Bill Schoeppner — who happen to be gay.  “We always joked around with Margie,” said Schoeppner, who’s been on the job 26 years. “I’m a Democrat and voted for Obama; she probably voted for McCain — so what? If she were a bigot or a homophobe, you wouldn’t have had all these gay people” working at the restaurant or eating at it. “She didn’t cut a check from the restaurant,” added Archila, a 28-year employee. “The restaurant didn’t have anything to do with it.”

I agree; Margie had a tiny little part in it. And as any American citizen, she should have the right of free speech. In fact, singling her out for retribution is bordering on destroying her right to a secret ballot.

I hope these activists aren’t hoping to win any converts to their cause by driving nice restaurant managers to nervous breakdowns and throwing people out of work in a recession.  Or attacking organized religion, for that matter.  Odd that the article didn’t mention that black churches were equally prominent, if not more so, than Mormons.

But that doesn’t fit the Agenda, does it?
