Sexual Orientation is Flexible, Right?

A satire, written to make you think. Every argument used has already been used extensively by those trying to change traditional marriage.
Posted from Alain's Newsletter, January 28, 2006
Conservative - Christian - Politically Active

Marriage – I want to marry three men, six women, four children (ages ranging from seven to ten), two dogs and a mule. And I want insurance and benefits for all of them. You do not like it, hate crime!!! Go to jail, get fined.

Hey everyone, this is my coming out notice. I have decided to CHANGE MY GENDER! We all know from the many great organizations out there that our gender is not fixed! It is FLUID like our constitution. NOW, HRC, ACLU, Planned Parenthood, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and so many more…

Hoorah for me! I am no longer to be considered a monogamous heterosexual male. From this point on, I am to be recognized as a Para-sexual. This is how I perceive my sexual orientation. You will love me and must accept me for whom I truly see myself to be. What, you never heard of a Para-sexual? No, I am not homosexual. No, I am not BI-sexual. Quit trying to limit my freedoms! I want to have a loving, multidirectional, multifaceted marital relationship with the ones I choose to love.

These are:

Male: Steve, Jack and John
Female: Judy, Jane, Elizabeth, Sally, Erica and Hillary
Children: Peter (male age 7), Jonathon (male age 9), Samantha (female age 10) and Jill (female age 9)
Canis familiaris: Spot (male age 3, Doberman) and Fife (female age 1 ½, french poodle)
Mule: Pedro (age 7)

We are planning a big happy wedding ceremony; all my best friends will be invited. Bill, Hillary, Ted, Barbara B. You know the crowd. (Great people. Oh that Ted is a kicker at parties when he starts getting juiced up!)

We deserve to have a happy legal marriage and all the benefits that come with it, such as: We deserve full medical and dental insurance, as well as other normal benefits, from our employers for our entire family. Hospitals must allow me to make decisions and visitations for all my family. We must be allowed jointly to adopt new children, pets and livestock. We must be allowed public housing on universities. My entire family must be considered surviving partners if one of us doesn’t have a will and dies. We deserve Tax Benifits, Filing joint income tax returns with the IRS and state taxing authorities. The right to create a "family partnership" under federal tax laws, which allows you to divide business income among family members. We demand all school children be taught, from preschool through college graduation, that we are a normal loving family. They must be forcibly taught that anyone who disagrees with our family’s lifestyles are terrible, hurtful, hateful bigots who should be locked away from decent people.

We deserve to be protected from bullying and name-calling. We demand that we have equal representation for the Para-sexual on all aspects television, radio, movie and print. This means at least five prime time sitcoms, three to five major motion pictures per season, and daily mention in the news media.

If American Idol does not find one of our very talented Para-sexual's to be THE American Idol, they must be thoroughly chastised in the press, and maybe sued by our great friends over at the ACLU. Para-sexualism must become a protected lifestyle, this is a civil rights issue.

We must not be discriminated against in any way. Laws must be passed protecting us from anyone who disagrees with us. Our liberty is at stake! Our family unit is larger than most, so we will fall well below the government described poverty line. Due to this, we deserve (and demand) equal access to child care, Medicare, welfare, unemployment, food stamps and any other wonderful social program we find out there that will give us what we deserve: free money. Your churches must also accept us. We will not allow intolerance from the pulpit. Any church that does not immediately and wholeheartedly accept us into their congregation will have their leaders arrested for hate crimes against us.

We do not care that God says what we are doing is SIN… we love one another. Is not God all about LOVE??? You best be LOVING us or we will get the government to make you, religious God fearing bigots! Your Church leaders better step up and get ready for some BIG weddings. When we come down the aisle, it is a true parade! So, now I am out of the closet. Are you loving me? Are you respecting me? No? [Screams: Hey ACLU, we got another one we can sue! Send in the litigators and make sure our bank account can handle another couple hundred grand from this bigoted reader!]

What Do You Think?

By Jose Ochoa
Posted by Angelic_Faces

Religion and politics don’t mix? Separation of Church and State? Evangelism and politics? Can someone be a politician and evangelist at the same time? Can one be politically active and a born again Christian? Enquiring minds want to know.

Today, we have a mythology that has been penetrated in our society and even in our church that the church should stay away from political matters. I beg to differ. Just recently, at the Judge Samuel Alito Senate confirmation hearings, a case was brought up when an elementary school student was given an assignment by his teacher during Thanksgiving: ‘To draw something that you are thankful for.’

This young boy decided to draw a picture of Jesus Christ. The high school teacher decided to put all of the students pictures up in the hallway of the school, except for one. Guess who’s? Not only was this student’s religious freedoms obstructed, but his evangelistic opportunity was obstructed as well. This case went one step below the Supreme Court when Judge Alito decided to give the boy back his freedom of religious expression, which is protected by the first amendment! (Free exercise clause).

Yes, politics does affect religion and religion does affect politics. Because of my religious beliefs I am pro-life, pro-Jesus and pro-Bible. Because of my religious beliefs I vote for those who will uphold biblical principles. What I am saying is that God has many callings: to teach, to serve and to lead/govern, etc. (see, Romans 12:4-8).

Then why have we Christians and the church allowed secular humanists to take over our country? Are not Christians called to lead? I believe the proclamation of the Gospel is at stake? If we continue to nominate and elect liberal anti-church, anti-life, anti-truth people to our courts and governing branches, let’s see how fast we lose our religious freedoms.

But then again, maybe that would be a good thing because under persecution the church seems to thrive ...and the Gospel proclaimed.

Force Multipliers


By Mark Noonan at 07:10 PM

Wikipedia: force multiplier-a military term referring to a factor that dramatically increases (hence multiplies) the combat-effectiveness of a given military force.

In Iraq an IED explodes,
An American soldier dies,
But that blast will grow as the media blow
It up before our eyes.

And trumpet to the watching world,
These fifth column falsifiers,
Like sheep they bleat we face defeat,
Our foe’s force multipliers.

Osama and his minions know,
In combat they can’t beat us;
So they hope and pray will come a day,
Our own media will defeat us.

Ignoring all the good we’ve done,
Liberals focus on the gore,
On losses mounting and body counting,
To prove we’ve lost this war.

They disgraced us once in Vietnam,
So now these leftists feel,
That again they’ll win with media spin,
And make America kneel.

But defeatists aren’t the only ones,
Learned lessons from the past;
Back then we swore we’d lose no more,
This time we’re standing fast.

The Internet’s exposed them,
As elitist media liars;
They stand unclothed and widely loathed,
Our foe’s force multipliers.

Some day when all our troops return,
With Iraq on freedom’s path,
The liberal elite who sought defeat,
May face some Righteous wrath.

The Intrisnsic Evil of Evolutionary Humanism

By Linda Kimball


In 1920, Winston Churchill spoke of a group of Enlightenment conspirators who had produced a system of morals and philosophy “as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent, which, if not arrested would shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible.” He observed that this malignant worldview “has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19 th century. This worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality has been steadily growing.” (Zionism versus Bolshevism)

This malevolent system of warped morals and anti-human philosophy entered into the world during the Enlightenment, where it seems as if another Garden of Eden seduction occurred. It appears as though certain Enlightenment thinkers—Darwin, Marx, Hegel, Saint-Simon and Rousseau among others, ate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and each man received certain ideas that when combined with the others, produced a malignancy filled system of philosophy comparable to a grimoire of goetia (black magic) which, like Sauron’s One Ring, holds out for the bearer, a seductive illusion of power, wealth, and glory. The key to the power, according to the grimoire, is through the reversal of human norms, natural law, and the social institutions so necessary for the continuance of mankind. In his book, The Everlasting Man, G. K. Chesterton described the reversal process as the ‘theology of demons’ and said it is sadistically anti-human and anti-childhood. It is intrinsically evil.

In its’ guise as Communism, it unleashed a sadistic anti-human holocaust of planetary dimensions. From Hitler’s ovens to the killing fields of Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedung, Pol Pot, Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-Il, and Fidel Castro there runs interconnecting rivers of human blood. One hundred million lives were consumed in the demonic quest for the creation of a New Man.

Even as rivers of blood still flowed from the earthly Hells created by Communists, communism itself began to shape-shift into something innocuous seeming in order that it could slither into and infect Christendom and the very fortress of Christianity, the United States. It disguised itself as progressivism, liberalism, secular humanism, and then later as environmentalism, feminism and a plethora of other social justice causes.

Soon, subversive stealth campaigns were launched. One was for the purpose of perverting our language and to insert the word ‘social’ into every conceivable area. This was in order to plant the thought that ‘social’ infuses everything with a positive content.

Another was for the purpose of instilling a sense of guilt within Americans. Americans found themselves being frequently reminded of both their individual failures and of the evil perpetrated by their culture and nation. A constantly expanding range of ‘victims’ who had been ‘unfairly’ treated and thus deserving of ‘special’ treatment were paraded before Americans to ensure that the conscience of Americans remained troubled.

Phony civil rights and sexual liberation movements which were social justice (communism) agendas in disguise were launched. They served two purposes: they bulldozed our Rule of Law and individual rights aside in order that these could be supplanted with ‘group rights,’ and they worked as dynamite upon human norms and social institutions. They were also insidiously disguised attacks upon childhood and childhood innocence.

Marching in unison with the other campaigns was one whose purpose was the perversion of transcendent natural law and more specifically, the all-important ‘first principle’ articulated in our Declaration of Independence: the inalienable right to life. By the use of what J. Budziszewski (What We Can’t Not Know) termed ‘black magic spells of imposture and unraveling’ (a reversal process); shock troops of evil perverted the foundational principles of right and wrong. Because the new morals they created had an air of plausibility, Americans accepted them. Thus they’ve successfully supplanted the sanctity of life principle with an ever expanding range of ‘new morals’ such as the ‘sanctity of choice’ (who wants a woman to die while giving birth?) and the ‘sanctity of the environment’ (who doesn’t want clean air and water?)

Using the same process of reversal, they began to supplant human norms (traditional marriage for instance) and man’s created condition (fixed gender as either male or female) with perverted ‘new morals’ based in notions of sexual orientation, consent, choice, and privacy. These new morals, like the civil rights and sexual liberation movements, are also disguised attacks upon children and childhood innocence.

The infiltration and infestation was a success. The minds of Western Europeans and Americans had become sufficiently darkened and disordered. Mankind had been successfully conditioned to accept that his new place in the scheme of life was no longer transcendent to the creation as taught by Christianity, but below and in submission to it.

Mankind would henceforth be found guilty of existing, and through his existence, be found guilty of causing hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, global warming, and other natural phenomenon. The intrinsically evil worldview had finally stepped out of the shadows and revealed an appalling goggle-eyed face of neo-paganism.

The stage had been set for the next phase of their plan to redeem the world from the evil of humankind. The campaigns to debase humanity, to destroy social and human norms, and to eliminate the human plague organisms began apace.

Humans As Nonpersons and Plague Species

“Saying homo sapiens are a ‘plague species,’ the London Zoo opened a new exhibit featuring--eight humans. We have set up this exhibit to highlight the spread of man as a plague species and to communicate the importance of man’s place in the planet’s ecosystem.” (Human Beings: Plague Species; WorldNet Daily, 2005)

“Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.” (Earth First! Journal editor John Daily)

“To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem.” (Yale professor Lamont Cole)

“The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States.” (Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund)

“Until such time as homo sapiens decide to rejoin nature, (we) can only hope for the right virus to come along.” (David Graber, research biologist with the National Park Service)

“Nonpersons or potential persons cannot be wronged…because death does not deprive them of something they value.” (John Harris, Sir David Alliance professor of bioethics, University of Manchester, England)
On the Elimination of Human Weeds and Other Schemes

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fill the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention…the real enemy…is humanity itself.” (The First Global Revolution, published by the Club of Rome)

Note: The Club of Rome bills itself as a global think tank. It’s comprised of scientists, economists, businessmen, international high civil servants, university presidents, members of parliament, heads of state, and former heads of state from all five continents. They describe themselves as people “who believe that the future of humankind is not determined once and for all.” This is code for evolutionary humanism.

“In Guyana, within 2 years, it (DDT) had almost eliminated malaria…my chief quarrel with DDT…is that it has greatly added to the population problem.” (Alexander King, former president of the Club of Rome)

Note: In the 60’s, a group of depopulation environmentalists conspired to have DDT banned from being used to control mosquitoes and malaria. The subsequent banning of DDT resulted in millions of deaths. One source estimated the death total as 500 million.

“I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing. There are others…If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate…without making the world too full…the state of affairs might be unpleasant but what of it? Really high-minded people are indifferent to suffering, especially that of others.” (Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society)

Note: Although they’ve not managed to spread a Black Death, they have managed to ignite a worldwide conflagration of STDS and AIDS. Keep in mind that it’s progressives, liberals and their international cohorts who have been preaching their gospel of ‘salvation and redemption by sex’ (safe sex). What they don’t want you to know is that it’s the environment (Gaia) that they are trying to save from the human plague. Causing human weeds to become diseased, sterile, psychologically damaged, or to die is part of their scheme to redeem the world.

Ask yourselves why there has been no logical response to this plague. Why, for instance, has there been no call to quarantine the infected? And in the face of mounting death totals (468,000 dead from AIDs since 1981), why do they continue to teach your children to engage in the very behaviors which they know to be the cause of death? The CDC (2002) reports that 16,000 deaths from AIDs occur annually. Another 40,000 new cases of infection occur within the same time frame. There are 1 million cases of HIV, 31-50 million of herpes simplex, 24 million of HPV, and 1 million cases of chronic hepatitis B.

Now connect the dots between the Aids and STDs devastations and the 486,000,000 surgically and chemically induced abortions between 1965-1996 ( It would appear that America is on a slippery-slope to committing demographic suicide.

How Many Should We Allow To Exist?

“The total world population should be no more than 2 billion rather than the current 5.6 billion.” (Cornell University professor David Pimentel, speaking before the American Assoc. for the Advancement of Science)
“The damage people cause is a function of demographics…One American burdens the earth much more than 20 Bangladeshes…In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day.” (Jacques Cousteau, the UNESCO Courier, Nov. 1991)
“Cut the population by 90%” (Dr. Sam Keen, Gorbachev Conference in San Francisco)

In speaking before the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Sept. 15, 2003, Michael Crichton told his audience, “certain human social structures…can’t be eliminated from society. One of those…is religion. Today it is said we live in a secular society in which…the best people, the most enlightened…do not believe in any religion. But…you cannot eliminate religion from the psyche of mankind…suppress it in one form; it…re-emerges in another form. Today, one of the most powerful religions in the Western World is environmentalism.”

Environmentalism (worshipping the creation) in conjunction with social Darwinism (the scientism that validates this lethal brew) and Chesterton’s ‘theology of the demons’—these are the elements that comprise the most intrinsically evil religion ever known to mankind. A religious worldview which Stephane Courtois (The Black Book of Communism) condemned as a criminal ideology that attracts narcissists, diabolical narcissists, and megalomaniac psychopaths such as Stalin. And unless we can arrest it, as Churchill declared, it will “shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible.”

Illegal Immigrants Take Many Reconstruction Jobs in New Orleans

The plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty says:

"Give me your tired, your poor,your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door."

It's time to shut the "golden door" and turn off the lamp.

By Greg Flakus
November 10 , 2005

Some contractors in New Orleans stand accused of taking relief federal funds and using them to hire illegal aliens to rebuild the hurricane-ravaged city.

Recently New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin drew criticism for expressing the fear that his city might be, as he put it, "overrun by Mexican workers." Hispanic groups protested the mayor's statements, but his concerns are being echoed by many people in New Orleans and many more who were driven from the city by Hurricane Katrina two months ago. Illegal immigration is becoming a hot topic in the storm-ravaged city.

They say they are from the state of Tamaulipas, in northern Mexico, and that they came to New Orleans to repair roofs. Some of them say they have also worked in Houston, others say they were drawn over the border by the lure of high-paying jobs in New Orleans.

The work immigrants do in New Orleans is dirty, difficult, and sometimes dangerous, but the pay is good. Roofers can make $300 a day in New Orleans and many construction jobs pay $15 to $17 an hour.

Workers are in demand in New Orleans because about 140,000 residences were destroyed or severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Many people displaced by the disaster have no home to which they can return.

But some evacuees say contractors who accept funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other federal agencies should give preference to former residents when it comes to hiring workers. Contractors can pay immigrant workers less and not worry about housing, leaving them to live for weeks at a time in tents or trailers.

Among those watching the situation is Chris Simcox, co-founder of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, which advocates stricter enforcement of immigration laws. In a VOA phone interview, he says the Minutemen may soon go to New Orleans.

"We have been in contact with some officials of the New Orleans city government about starting a Minuteman watch group there," said Mr. Simcox. "Let us expose how the federal government is aiding and abetting illegal activity in this country."

The agency that investigates contractor hiring practices is Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which along with FEMA, is part of the Department of Homeland Security.

ICE spokesman Dean Boyd, speaking by phone from his office in Washington, says agents are pursuing cases in New Orleans.

"I have no say about which companies have been contracted or hired and how those companies hired their employees," he said. "What I can tell you, as a law enforcement agency, we are and have been conducting operations in the Gulf coast area specifically to investigate the hiring practices of some of these companies that have been provided contracts."

Mr. Boyd says ICE agents arrested several illegal aliens who were working at a Navy facility in New Orleans recently. This came after Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu heard complaints from citizens who had been fired from jobs at the facility and replaced by lower-paid illegal workers.

Senator Landrieu has complained that policies that favor the hiring of illegal workers exacerbate the unemployment situation in Louisiana, which she says is almost as bad as it was during the Great Depression. Academics examining the situation say New Orleans may be undergoing a population swap, losing blacks who had lived there for generations, and gaining Hispanics, who counted for only three percent of the population before Katrina.

Minuteman leader Chris Simcox accuses the federal government of encouraging the influx of illegal immigrants and neglecting the needs of displaced citizens, both black and white.

"These are American citizens who are being displaced, who cannot pull themselves up by their bootstraps because the federal government is promoting illegal activity, promoting the hiring of people who are in this country illegally," added Mr. Simcox.

ICE spokesman Dean Boyd denies the federal government is turning a blind eye to the violation of immigration laws. But he says his agency cannot bring charges against a company without a thorough investigation.

"We have to establish by law, by laws enacted by Congress, that the company knowingly hired illegal aliens," he noted. "It is a difficult standard to prove, but nevertheless we are investigating and there are a number of investigations underway."

Contractors in New Orleans argue that they are taking on difficult, messy work using the workers who are available. They say that identifying illegal workers is not always easy. Many contractors say the priority should be getting New Orleans back on its feet as soon as possible and that the immigration debate should be left for another day.

“While We Slept, The Children Were Stolen”

by Georgiana Preskar
President, Eagle Forum of Sacramento

Optimism can deceive us. Voter turn out and results is such an example. Though there was question as to a few Props passing, most people were optimistic that 73 would pass.

My thoughts, as I voted, brought me back to when I wrote my book. The reality of the Nation's APATHY was never more vivid. I tried to erase those thoughts staying focused on the success of Prop 73, as well as the others.

I was not surprised when I woke to the bad news. My sadness was deep. Many of you called with similar feelings. We are after all only human!

Many people chose to make excuses for the voter turn out and the choice of those who did vote. Others were completely silent such as CA and national newsrooms. Individual and parental authority was ignored!

The last century has waited patiently for this moment in time. Each victory for the Marxists and Communists is a thrust to move forward with their agendas.

Look around! First Amendment rights are disappearing fast for Judeo-Christians; God is silenced; crosses removed. The Second Amendment rights are gone in San Francisco. On November 8th, voters banned handguns and the ability to protect family, land and life. Our property is confiscated through eminent domain for the common good.

The Supreme Court decision that parents' have the ultimate authority in their children's educational upbringing is ignored. The state now controls the children. Soon 3 year-olds will be required to attend pre-school.

Chips will be inserted into our children and they will be tracked for the supposed excuse of safety. Family privacy is outdated for surveys now divulge family affairs that are not the business of the school or state.

Churches are told they have no rights to preach the word against homosexuality. Hate crime law is specific for those who do. We are called names if we do not adhere to the new political correctness, diversity and multiculturalism. We are racists if we want closed borders for our Nation's security or a common language spoken.

Family structure is disintegrating. Pornography is everywhere. Patriarchal heads of families are trained to be feminist oriented; we see principles of schools, business and government leaders, firemen and policemen falling prey to the whims of feminists and homosexuals who want the family to cave to their agenda. The military now allow women in active duty. Childbirth is decreasing. Gender neutral is good. All forms of sexuality are normal and natural.

History is being rewritten and truth erased. A different picture is painted for our children; America is ruthless and dishonorable in worldly affairs and thus needs change.

The New World is not far away. We watch Highways built that will connect our southern and northern neighbors with us. Silently we acknowledge the new North American Continent that will erase a middle class in favor of a false utopia that will give us a few elite at the top with the majority of poor at the bottom. Good-bye America!

Where is everyone? They are exactly where they have been for over 50 years, sleeping. The enemy is happy for now he can strike and be assured of success with his agenda.

The enemy is proud of the willingness of Church leaders to sleep through it all. Many leaders are afraid or perhaps too lazy to learn or preach a hard lined message that will smack the souls of those listening. Of course some are too busy building mega-churches. This effort keeps one from the true purpose of our life that is very simple, “To love, honor and obey God.” Not too difficult, but somehow the busy world keeps us from the simplicity that God gave us.

Worldly priorities kept church leaders from issues of abortion and parental authority; it was not preached strongly enough to wake up the people of California to vote. Our children will suffer, lost to the secular world and the APATHY that has taken over a once free America.

Long ago we opened the doors to those who planted seeds of destruction. Our Nation is split, not one Nation. With seeds of deception successfully grown, America now accepts socialist humanism refusing to discipline through Judeo-Christian ethics.

Though we are saddened by the results of November 8th, deep within we knew the truth. The APATHY has gone too far; how do we come back?

As we ponder this question, let us ask God to forgive this Nation for its sinful nature. Let us ask God to move us individually and collectively forward in His Name.

People ask, “Where to now, can we save our children and can America survive?”

“While we slept the last 50 years, the United States was stolen.” California had a second chance. It chose to sleep; children were stolen. It is a sad time! Can we save America? We must wake up first!

What’s All The Fuss Over The High School Exit Exam?

Our government-run school officials are running scared because in order for a high school student to graduate, he/she must pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE). The exit exam is a two-part test, with math and English sections, which students must pass for a high school diploma starting with the class of 2006. According to San Diego County figures roughly 3,631 high school seniors still have not passed the exit exam, and that roughly 10 percent of students still need to pass the exam compared with more than 50 percent two years ago.

Could it possibly be that those same school officials see the CAHSEE as a performance test of how well they are teaching our children? There is research that linked performance on the California Standards Test, given to students in grades two through 11, to how a student will fare on the exit exam. Students who have trouble with basic middle school math will likely perform poorly in high school, that could lead to failing the exit exam. So why isn’t our government-run education system addressing the problem earlier?

The CAHSEE will provide a means by which school districts will not only be able to gauge the success of the students, but to gauge the success of the teachers. Granted teachers can’t do the job alone; parents have a responsibility to do their part as well. However, taxpaying parents have every right to demand quality education and educators. Our government-run school system is graduating children who cannot read or write; those children will be destined to become fast food workers or stuck in low paying jobs. Is it any wonder high tech job are outsourced? Statistics don’t lie.

Vote YES on Proposition 74!

The First Casualty of Our Nation's Cultural War … The Innocence of Our Youth

Note from Angelic_Faces: The following articles were written by Mrs. Orlean Koehle, State President of Eagle Forum of California. Orlean is a substitute teacher and often shares her experiences with her fellow Eagles. What is happening on your child's or grandchild's government-run school campus? You may be surprised ... or, maybe not. But it's stuff like this that is causing the dangerous moral decay of our culture ... and the minds of our children and grandchildren.


"The First Casualty of War is Innocence." These words I saw written on several posters at Piner High School in Santa Rosa, CA, October 3, 2005, where I was asked to substitute teach in English and journalism. I wondered what war these posters were referring to? Could it be the culture war that American is now in - where our Christian heritage and beliefs are constantly under attack, and where our youth are the victims and do lose their innocence, purity, and even their faith.

The words on the poster were a little puzzling since the posters were put out by the Gay Straight Alliance network whose agenda and presence on our high school campuses is certainly not about promoting the "innocence" of our youth.

The poster goes on to read, "Know who you are and where you come from so you can make the right choices about what's right and what's just stay true to yourself."

At the bottom is written, "To order copies of this and other posters contact the Gay Straight Alliance.

I though to myself, what a dichotomy the words on this poster are. When I have heard presentations from the pro-gay groups that come onto our high school campuses, they tell our youth that there is no absolute truth, nor any absolute right or wrong. Now they are telling the young people to stay true to yourself so they can make the "right" choices about what is "right, " and who are they to talk about innocence?

Part of their poster is very true. If our young people truly know who they are - that they are children of God - and where they come from - from a loving Heavenly Father, then they can make right decisions about what is right and what is wrong. But they need to stay true to not just themselves. They need to stay true to the written commandments of God which are much better guides for them than just their inner feelings at the time.

Without a set of firm guidelines that come from God's Holy word, it would be very hard for young people today to have any idea who they are or where they come from or to be true to themselves. With the mixed messages they are receiving at public school today, they are as Paul describes in Ephesians 4:14, "tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive."

The Gay, Straight Alliance Club is alive and well on just about every high school campus deceiving many of our young people and bringing them into a very dangerous and deadly lifestyle under the guise of "tolerance and acceptance and being true to yourself."

Along with the GSA Club, I discovered another club "lying in wait to deceive" at the same Piner High School.

Witches Alive and Well … And Not Just at Halloween

by Orlean Koehle, President
Eagle Forum of California

In the journalism classroom during the lunch period I took time to browse through some of the former year books that the class was responsible for putting out. As I was looking at last year's book called "Kaleidoscope," (2004-2005), under the Activities Section, I was shocked to come upon a picture of girls all dressed in black, with gothic clothes and makeup, calling themselves "witches" under the title of "Celtic Club." Here are the words that were written describing their clubs activities:

“The Celtic Club is made up of a group of students at Piner who follow the religion of Wicca. The people in this club come together and celebrate their beliefs. Wicca is basically about herbal healing and protection and they practice these things by casting spells.

“One holiday that they come together and celebrate is Yule, Dec. 21st . Yule celebrates the rebirth of their god, the moon goddess' son and husband, the son God.

“The president of the club is sophomore Edith Rigger and the vice-president is junior Michell Bercut.

“They do all different kinds of spells and are all there for each other. “We all brought in objects that we always have with us to bless them with a protection spell,” said Junior Michelle Bercut.

“Even though they have only been together for a year, they are well on their way to being a very successful well-known club."

Is it not amazing that such clubs are condoned and recognized by the school administration? What ever happened to "Separation of Church and State? The Celtic Club is allowed to get together to perform their religious ritual on campus - casting spells. Is that not a little bit like a Christian saying a prayer on campus? The Celtic Club gets to celebrate their "Yule" festivity Dec. 21, in honor of their moon and sun gods. But the great Christian holiday, Christmas, in honor of the birth of Christ, the Son of God, doesn't even get to be put on the school calendar. It is now just listed as "winter holiday."

There is a Christian Club on campus at Piner High school that meets during the noon hour once a week like the other clubs. I wonder if they would be allowed to bring in "objects" like Bibles, crosses, statues of Christ, even nativity scenes, "to bless them with a protective prayer" like the Celtic Club gets to do with their objects? If that were the case, I bet the ACLU would be all over Piner High School.

If anyone is unaware that our nation is involved in a culture war, where Christian morals and principles passed down to us by our founding fathers are turned upside down, and the innocence of our youth is being destroyed on a grand scale, please go visit our public schools. Then start attending school board meetings and speak out against these attacks on our culture. You might even consider running for school board yourself. We must do our part to make a difference before our Christian culture is no longer recognizable.
