First of all, an apology and more complete explanation.
When I said Messiah and the Tv as an idol, I was speaking metaphorically….not literally.
What I was saying is that the media, shines down their glory on Sen Obama, giving him a halo of approval, and most people are not bothering to check their facts. I wasn’t literally accusing people of worshiping him, nor the tv… Nor did I mean to indicate that people are stupid, merely uniformed. Bear with me, I have a lot of frustration, guilt and problems with this right now, and I did not mean to hurt anyone feelings, or direct this at any particular individual. This is something I need to talk about for ME. If I don’t talk about it, then I may as well advocate it, and I don’t think I can live with myself if I don’t talk about it – strongly. I need to speak up and be active and say what I think about it for my own spiritual well being. That’s it, nothing more. If I convince people to think, or change their ideas, then that’s great – otherwise I did my best and I can forget about it.
On another note, a change of subject that one person indicated wasn’t of importance to anyone. Homosexuality. Now, I know I have people who read who ARE homosexual, and I am not going to bash them, nor homosexuality. However, I do have a problem with Sen Obama on this point as well.
Putting aside traditional marriage which I support, (if nothing else, I am not homosexual so I do not feel the need to vote for their agenda, they can do that themselves , I want to mention Kevin Jennings.
Kevin Jennings, and the organization he founded, GSLEN appears to have a very casual and passive opinion on sexual relations between adults and teens, even children. Why isn’t this on the news???? I found quotes all over the place and the books are for sale, it’s all fairly verifiable -
“One Teacher in Ten, GLSEN founder Kevin Jennings reported the story of a 15-year-old boy named “Brewster” who came to him in 1989 for assistance. Jennings said the boy was having difficulty in school and did not know why. However, during a speech in Iowa five years ago, Jennings stated that “Brewster” had confided to him that he had a sexual encounter with an older man in Boston. Jennings claims he responded to the teen by saying, “I hope you knew to use a condom.” The apparent case of sex abuse was not reported to authorities.“(site here)
Apparently Jennings doesn’t find that to be disturbing in the least, as long as a condom was used. That’s all that matters right? Not that a child was sexually abused by an adult. Who cares right? It was just one of those things that happens and….
“The book “Growing Up Gay/Growing Up Lesbian,” recommended on the GLSEN website for kids in grades seven to 12, describes two 10-year-old boys in a very graphic sexual encounter (pp.99-100). In the same book, an adult man named Eliot reflects on his youth:
“My first experience was with a much older man, a friend of Derek’s [his father]. … When I was 15, he must have been 29, 30 … I seduced him. … It was a wild night. We did everything.”
Hey, look you can buy the book right on their site - although the first one is not presented there at this time.
“Rainbow Boys,” features an episode of homosexual sex between one of the main characters, a 17-year-old boy, and a 29-year-old man he has just met via the Internet ( p. 148). Again, a great influence for kids.
“My sexuality is as fluid, infinite, undefinable, and ever-changing as the north-flowing river. … Sexuality is not black or white … it is gray. … I know that defining myself is not so simple. …” writes a 16-year-old in “Revolutionary Voices : A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology” (p.167). Another girl writes in the same book: “I am a 15-year-old dyke artist and activist. I’ve got flaming pink hair and a passion for genderf–k in both directions” (p. 28).
So, what is up with giving these out to children? I’m sorry, this isn’t homosexual, it’s pedophilia. My moral convictions aside from homosexuality, at least with adults, that is their business. I do not hate them, or wish them any ill will at all. But I DO NOT approve of giving this stuff out to kids in Jr High and High School. Do you?
It is entirely different from promoting a safe place for gay kids. This does not in anyway make anything good happen. This at the very least is just disgusting, talking about children in this way. It is degrading, disrespectful and outright perverse.
Yes children are s e x u a l beings, but they need to grow up, and be protected so that they can grow and be adults. They certainly do not need to be having this sort of trash given to them.
Obama endorses this organization, and has it’s founder in his employment. Do you really think it’s about making school “safe” or about warping our children’s minds? Do you really think it’s about equality, or about making it socially acceptable to abuse teens and children?
Also, some of the contention with the pro glbt bills are presented here. I have to admit that I think that there is some concern in defining s e x u a l orientation. There are two sides to this coin as well….I don’t think most people would condone this sort of thing…
