Dissecting Sexual Revolutionary Propaganda

May 29th, 2014 Comments off

As I have said many times in my speeches (available at the Ruth Institute podcast page), the Sexual Revolution is irrational and its goals are impossible.  Therefore, those committed to the Sexual Revolution must also commit themselves to a steady stream of propaganda to over-write the basic facts of reality. This sometimes includes the subtle or not-so-subtle rewriting of history.

Today’s exhibit in understanding Revolutionary Propaganda comes to us from the Religion News Service, which describes itself this way.

The Religion News Service aims to be the largest single source of news about religion, spirituality and ideas. We strive to inform, illuminate and inspire public discourse on matters relating to belief and convictions.

So I find it odd, to say the least, to find an organization with this mission, taking for granted the arguments of Sexual Revolutionaries in an article, described as an “analysis.”

Let me confine myself to one particularly noticeable re-writing of history.

Written by Kevin Eckstrom, the Editor in Chief of the Religion News Service, the article claims in the section called, “A problem of overreach:”

Conservative groups resisted moves to compromise on a half-measure like civil unions; (Tony) Perkins’ organization (Family Research Council) calls civil unions nothing more than “a slow-motion surrender.” And that, said veteran gay marriage proponent Jonathan Rauch, was a critical mistake.

The author provides no context for cultural conservative Perkins’ comment, and he gives pro-gay Jonathan Rauch the last word. By doing this, the author suggests that Perkins’ assessment is incorrect, without actually taking responsibility for proving this, or even stating that his assessment is incorrect. Read more…

Support Prop 8 and the Rule of Law

August 5th, 2013 Comments off

How in the world can more than a dozen states vote on constitutional amendments, and their votes count — while our votes on Proposition 8 do not count in California?!

As you know, our courageous County Clerk Ernie Dronenburg filed a lawsuit seeking guidance and clarification by the California Supreme Court as to whether Proposition 8 is still law – because it has not been overruled by any appellate court, and the federal district court injunction against it only applies to Alameda and Los Angeles Counties. Confusing!! Therefore, Ernie’s lawsuit is intended to clarify and uphold the rule of law. Read more…

Monterey County joins Proposition 8 legal argument

July 23rd, 2013 Comments off

Excellent! The movement is beyond San Diego county borders. Brave souls! You can still sign the petition supporting our local clerk, Ernie Dronenburg, here. (Remember, you don’t have to live anywhere near here to sign the petition–anonymously or otherwise.)

On July 12, Monterey County received documents demanding an immediate halt to issuance of same-sex marriage licenses, associated with a stay request filed in the California Supreme Court by the proponents of Proposition 8, which prohibits same-sex marriage.The stay, which asked that county clerks throughout California be ordered to not issue marriage licenses to same sex couples, was rejected Monday, but the court requested the state to file an opposition brief.

More reasons to sign the petition in support of Ernest Dronenburg

July 23rd, 2013 Comments off

One county clerk out of all the county clerks in the whole country speaks up, and the gay lobby pounces on him with no mercy. Not even the tiniest bit of dissent is tolerated. Is this still America?

Our options regarding the gay lobby are hardly “live and let live,” as we were told; they are turning out to be “celebrate or be crushed.”

Remember, this is simply a petition to show your support for someone who dares to stand up for marriage. It doesn’t matter if you don’t live in California.

Also, you can sign the petition anonymously if you’re worried about consequences

…but really, if you’re worried about consequences, that’s a clear sign that we need to start changing things!

Stand up for those who have no voice–Kids need a mom and a dad!

“All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing.” -Edmund Burke

Sign the petition now. It only takes a few seconds. Send this link to 5 or more of your friends:

You have no confidence in the legal system thanks to the lawless behavior of the political and legal elite.

You expect the Gay Lobby to ostracize him and you are sick of that kind of bullying.

You supported Prop 8 and are upset that the will of the people has been ignored.

The Legal Circus That Killed Proposition 8

July 22nd, 2013 Comments off

by Frank Schubert

July 22nd, 2013

The process that killed Prop 8 in California should concern anyone who cares about democracy and the rule of law. The cheaters won.

When I was a kid, my brother and I would occasionally go to the Memorial Auditorium in downtown Sacramento and watch the spectacle that was then called “Big Time Wrestling.” It featured all kinds of amazing characters with different story lines. The matches always involved someone who represented the “good guy” against an adversary who embodied the “bad guy.” Read more…
