Wealthy Gay Activist: "Undermine credibility, choke finances, re-educate their children."
A wealthy, multimillionaire, homosexual activist, gave some straight talk to an audience in Los Angles, explaining who their real enemy is and what homosexuals must do to defeat them.
You and I are them.
He praised The New York Times Magazine for an article about young people "coming out" as homosexuals in middle school.
And he said, "It's time we raise our children to be independent thinkers and deeply suspicious of bible [sic] beating organized religion."
He argued that, "Children taught that the Bible condemns homosexuality may become "school bullies" and later become adults who vote "to deny marriage equality."
He laid out a specific plan as to how to defeat the Catholics, Mormons and Evangelicals who oppose the homosexual agenda.
David Bohnett, who founded Geocities then sold it to Yahoo, now gives millions of dollars to help homosexual organizations such as the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network. Bohnett was receiving an award from GLSEN on the occasion of his comments.
He said, "We must treat the 'causes' of intolerance and bullying as well as the 'symptoms' of them."
The "symptoms," of course, would be the effort to defend the redefinition of marriage and related actions.
The "causes," however, is a person's belief or biblical worldview. This is very troubling because he said, "It is the evangelical and fundamentalist groups that teach homosexuality is a sin, who stand in the way of fairness and equality."
He and most all homosexual activists advocate every effort to not only redefine marriage, but to also redefine biblical teaching and "sin".
He even defines the activities of GLSEN in our public schools as an "outreach." Indeed it is.
Interestingly, Senator Ed Murray and Representative Jamie Pederson, both sponsors of SB 5688, say the continuous expansion of domestic partnerships is, "a bridge until they can legally marry," and an "incremental approach---a strategic plan."
David Bohnett is probably one of the two most influential homosexual activists and donors in the country. They have a plan that is being advanced both nationally and locally.
He told the audience, "The bible [sic] is all too often used as a weapon against us..."
He was clear in outlining the plan to remedy the "symptoms" and cure the "causes" of resistance to the homosexual agenda. He calls it "faith based discrimination," meaning if you believe anything other than what they believe and are advancing in our culture, you are discriminating against them. There is no room for diversity of thought or belief. And certainly not for tolerance from them.
He says it is the "obligation" of homosexuals to take "active measures."
The following is the "active measures" he is suggesting:
*Confront lies with facts.
*Implement a pre-emptive campaign that anticipates the arguments of our opponents.
*Undermine their credibility.
*Condemn their intolerance.
*Expose their hypocrisy.
*Choke off their financial support.
*Shine the bright light of shame and humiliation on their cowardly prejudices.
With a complicit press and a liberal left Congress and President; and a liberal left majority in the State Legislature and Governor's office, Washington has become fertile ground for the advancement of this agenda.
Except---after several successive losses to this agenda in recent years, you and others like you, have now taken a stand and said, "this is enough"---"no more". You are telling the state and the country that you will and do stand for truth, will not be intimidated or bullied and will not allow marriage to be redefined and homosexuality taught as normal in the class room.
You are making a statement that you will defend the Bible's credibility, it's teaching on sin and morality and that of those who believe and strive to live by the Judeo-Christian values the Bible teaches.
For this moment you have stood in the face of harassment and attempted intimidation. You have written your name on a petition putting this issue before the people and the press has called it a miracle. And some in the Christian community said it was "stupid"--- destined to fail and even if it got on the ballot, it would lose by 30 points. You are taking your message to the public and the polls say it is too close to call.
These people are a very small percentage of the population, yet they have co-opted the press, many legislators and the public school system to carry their message and their agenda---until now.
Those caught in this lifestyle need a savior and deliverer, not another legislative session or classroom in which to advance their deceptive agenda.
Things are changing in Washington State. New alliances are being formed and I believe a new day is dawning. Something that transcends R-71 has already happened.
I sincerely believe we have a good chance to win in defeating SB 5688 if we stay on course over the next couple of weeks.
One thing is already certain. We will greet the 2010 Legislative session with a new and energized unity and commitment to turn the tide, with God's help. That has already happened. We will not turn back.
Stand strong. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of a sound mind. Stand for truth. Do not be ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God unto salvation. It is also the power that can restore a culture.
Thank you for standing with us in your financial support and in prayer.
