    20 year old prediction... you be the judge

    "All churches who condemn us will be closed." That was what Michael Swift, a "gay revolutionary," declared in a February 1987 issue of the Gay Community News.

    The "dream" was filled with a nightmare scenario that seemed like something out of a fascist coup d'etat: "All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked .... [W]e shall make films about the love between heroic men .... The family unit -- spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence -- will be abolished .... All churches who condemn us will be closed."

    "We shall sodomize your sons .... We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all-male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together."

    While they claim to want only equal protection under law, the real agenda of homosexual activists is simple: the complete alteration of American society to fit the homosexual view of human sexuality, marriage and family.

    This is not an overexaggeration. Paula Ettelbrick is former legal director of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund and now executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. Ettelbrick stated,
    "Being queer is more than setting up house, sleeping with a person of the same gender, and seeking state approval for doing so ....
    Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex, sexuality, and family, and in the process, transforming the very fabric of society ....
    We must keep our eyes on the goal ... of radically reordering society's views of reality."

    In 1987 Steve Warren, a spokesman for the controversial homosexual group ACT UP, wrote an article for The Advocate, a magazine for the gay community. Titled "Warning to the Homophobes," Warren spoke of "the mean-spirited nature of Judeo-Christian morality."

    Even in 1987, Warren felt that the homosexual movement could not be stopped. And as activists continued to find success, he promised that "we are going to force you [Christians] to recant everything you have believed or said about sexuality."

    Warren said the Bible, especially, would require a face-lift. "Finally, we will in all likelihood want to expunge a number of passages from your Scriptures and rewrite others," he said, "eliminating preferential treatment of marriage and using words that will allow for homosexual interpretations of passages." far back as 1985, when in their article for Christopher Street, a gay magazine, Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen caused a sensation with their blueprint to "persuade straight America" to accept homosexuality. Their article was expanded into a book on the subject, the national number-one best seller After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the '90s.

    Kirk and Madsen focused the heart of their strategy on using the media as a propaganda tool in persuading the majority of Americans that gay is OK. But they also addressed the question of what to do with the hardened opposition -- that is, at least in institutional terms, those following the "religious authority" of the Church. Gay activists, the authors said, should take a two-pronged approach to neutralizing the threat of a vigorous Christian-led opposition.

    First, to "confound" what Kirk and Madsen called "the homophobia of true believers," they suggested that gays "muddy the moral waters." This would be accomplished in part by "publicizing support for gays by more moderate churches" and "raising theological objections of our own about conservative interpretations of biblical teachings."

    For those churches which resist the siren call to complete moral relativism, Kirk and Madsen submitted a secondary strategy. They suggested that gays "undermine the moral authority of homophobic churches by portraying them as antiquated backwaters, badly out of step with the times ...."

    In his article, Warren's final warning should cause wise Christians to accurately discern the times in which we live: "We have captured the liberal establishment and the press. We have already beaten you on a number of battlefields. And we have the spirit of the age on our side. You have neither the faith nor the strength to fight us, so you might as well surrender now."

    How fast 20 years has passed.

    You do realize that that essay was satire, right? You do understand satire, don't you?

    Further, the author of that essay does not speak for gays, anymore than the "Gad Hates Fags" guy who protests fallen soldiers funerals speaks for Christians. My advice is to actually get to know someone who is gay, and see for yourself how 'evil' we really are.

    Hello Andy.

    Which article was satire? I did look up the book mentioned.. "After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the '90s". It didn't seem like satire.

    There are nice quiet gays that do not bring their sex acts to be their public identity. I know they are persons, and have all the dignity anyone else has. As persons, they are us.. there is no difference.

    In actions, they are different.

    Even though as you say, the author does not speak for gays, he is the type of homosexual I do not trust with children for the usual reasons.

    As Catholics we have this to consider:

    Homosexual acts are intrinsically evil.

    Ourside of marriage, everyone is to be celibate.

    If you are not Catholic, then these things may not seem important to you.

    Getting to know someone who is gay would not change the nature of evil nor my opinion of it. I have my own battles with evil, gays have theirs.

    See that little girl in the picture? That little person, sandwiched between two buck gays is what I am talking about.

    That picture tells almost a perfect story, except that the little one being a boy, would be more alligned with my worry.

    Thanks for the comment.
