AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) — "A Dutch gay group has organized a "Pink Christmas" festival for the first time in Amsterdam, featuring a manger stall with two Josephs and two Marys.
Other attractions in the 10-day festival include parties, an open-air market, gay-themed films, an ice skating rink and religious services on Dec. 25.

I don't think I need to mention where the violent uprising of homosexuals will eventually lead--the following story speaks for itself...
From Worldnetdaily: "Hundreds of homosexual activists rushed out of bars and swarmed a group of Christians who were singing songs in San Francisco's Castro District – and some even threatened to kill the worshippers.
A group of Christians had been singing and praying in the "gay" district for several days, but they never expected an angry mob would run them out. However, that's what happened Friday night.
Here is one woman's account..."People would come stand with us and join us," she said. "We got to pray for some people."
But then angry men began yelling profanities and warning the Read More...
From Lifesite: "On Sunday, November 9, a band of about 30 homosexuals stormed a church in Lansing, Michigan. Some were well dressed and were stationed inside Mount Hope Church, where they pretended to be normal Sunday worshippers; others were outside dressed in pink and black.

The Vatican's request to move the body of Cardinal Newman from his grave in Rednal to the Oratory Church is merely a step on the path to being declared a Blessed and ultimately a Saint. The Newman Cause for sainthood is now far advanced in Rome and it is anticipated that Pope Benedict XVI will issue a Decree declaring Newman as Blessed, sometime during December of this year.
Excerpt from Timesonline: "Peter Tatchell described the Vatican's order as "an act of religious desecration". He said: "Newman repeatedly made it clear that he wanted to be buried next to his life-long partner, Ambrose St John. No one gave the Pope permission to defy Newman's wishes. The re-burial has only one aim in mind: to cover up Newman's homosexuality and to disavow his love for another man. It is an act of shameless Read More...
Excerpts from Yahoo: BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - "Couples must prove they have been living together for at least five years to receive the benefit, Amado Boudo, executive director of the national social security administration, told local television reporters.
The government's national decree will "put the rights of all cohabitants on a level playing field," Boudo said.
Level playing field? I have heard it said that God may soon need to apologize to the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah since our wickedness has surpassed even theirs. By labeling an abomination that cries to heaven for vengeance "marriage" it can't be long before He does indeed take vengeance.
"Gay activists welcomed Monday's announcement as the fruition of years of campaigning the government to grant them the same rights as heterosexual married couples.
Gay civil unions already are legal in five cities, including Buenos Aires.
The measure is "historic" and marks a "step forward" for human rights because it is the first nationwide gay-rights measure approved by the government, gay activist Pedro Paradiso Sottile told The Associated Press."
"Buenos Aires was the first Latin American capital city to legalize gay civil unions in 2002. Since then, the Argentine capital has become one of the hotspots on the international gay-friendly tourist circuit, going head-to-head with Rio de Janeiro.
The soccer-crazed country was host last year to the first international gay world cup as well as the international gay tango festival."
Here is an excerpt --"Mein Camp: Is Modern Gay Life Fascist?"
"Consider the gay-is-good-is-happy mantra that suspends all critical thought, numbing all detraction, the unspoken aspersion that the hurtful oppressive heterosexist majority is, by comparison, ugly of body and soul, now justly banished from the glorious gay life it can only wistfully watch a-tip-toe over the gay ghetto wall, the assertion that any alternative or private 'self-loathing' queers who don’t conform must likewise be mere shadows."
"Surely, coming out means coming home: to a better world of spandex and uniform bliss...Prides bigger each year as gay hits vogue and...[we] have at last broken free of the shackles of mere procreation to devote all our energies to the narcissistic fetishism of our own supreme masculinity and almost mystical, classical quest for botoxed youth."

According to God's law and the natural law--PROCREATION IS THE PRIMARY END OF MARRIAGE. In a culture that esteems and promotes the unbridled exaltation of sex, this notion is more shocking to the modern mind than child pornography. But with the loss of fruitless marital sex as the norm we have lost traditional marriage.
The traditional view of marriage has been mocked, chided and rejected by so many it has transformed the very idea of marriage into nothing more than an antiquated and unfortunate monogamous commitment where it is incumbent upon each spouse to engage in fruitless sex i.e., mutual masturbation, for the sole purpose of igniting the insatiable and ever consuming passions of the flesh. But when sex becomes routine and loses its variety, the so-called marriage dies also.
According to the Catholic church, heterosexuals, who plan from the outset of their marriage to frustrate the procreation of children, are never validly married since they are denying an essential property of marriage. Homosexual sex, by nature, renders one incapable of procreation and thereby incapable of a valid marriage to a member of the same sex. Nevertheless, the State in the name of "human dignity" has permitted a sham, because "there can be no true promotion of man's dignity unless the essential order of human nature is respected". Persona Humana, CDF.
As a culture, we wonder why we are all fat when we engage in constant gluttony. We wonder why we are divorced and unhappy when we selfishly seek constant genital gratification while excluding God's natural designs. Finally, we wonder why homosexual "marriage" has snuck up on us when our sex lives have become fruitless-- just like homosexuality. Fruitless sex that excludes God's plan of creation for man is a roadmap for the acceptance of Read More...
Excerpt from the Vancouver Sun: "The Vancouver board of education says it plans to enforce a ministry policy that prevents parents from pulling students out of classes that deal with alternative sexuality.
"A recent staff recommendation from the Vancouver board of education says parents can pull their children out of sensitive lessons in health classes because of religious or family beliefs, but can't opt their children out of gay-friendly lessons in any other classes."
"The ministry guidelines stem from a contract the government signed with gay activists Murray and Peter Corren. The couple launched a human-rights case against the government, which ended the lawsuit by signing an agreement to add teachings about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered issues to the provincial curriculum."
Iris Robinson, is the chair of the Stormont health committee and is married to Peter Robinson, who took office as the First Minister of Northern Ireland on Thursday.
During a radio interview with the BBC she had the politically incorrect audacity to assert that gay people could be "turned around".
"Homosexuality is not natural. My Christian beliefs tell me that it is an abomination and that is very clear. It is an offence to God, an offensive act and something that God abhors. I am clearly not saying that I want people to thrash the living daylights out of a homosexual man or women, because I don't."
"She said: "I have a very lovely psychiatrist who works with me in my offices and his Christian background is that he tries to help homosexuals - trying to turn them away from what they are engaged in."
From Northern Ireland News: "John O'Doherty, a South Belfast District Policing Partnership member has revealed he has filed a complaint with the police over the comments, saying: "People like Mrs Robinson need to learn that their comments hav Read More...
The coming persecution of the Church will certainly stem in part from the radical homosexual movement. The way is being paved for the son of perdition through the growth of a new psuedo-christianity, or better yet, anti-christianity, which excludes the truths of Jesus Christ. It also diabolically twists the charitable and social aspects of Christianity rendering those who oppose the homosexual lifestyle as intolerant hate-mongers. The tenets of this anti-christian movement are simple: be nice, don't judge, and tolerate everything except the intolerant truth and those who espouse it. The arch-enemy of this movement is of course the Catholic Church which teaches that homosexual sex is a mortal sin. Unfortunately many so-called Christian denominations have fallen prey to this more palatable anti-Christianity. It is becoming easier to see what Christ meant when he said--"Will I find faith when I return?"

Believe it or not the radical gay agenda is moving into elder care and nursing homes. Promoters of sodomy and perversity want to protect those who are ailing and dying from Christians who may attempt to proselytize or discourage the elderly from coming out of the closet. I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that the radical left would attempt to prevent a soul from the opportunity to repent in one's final days since they are in league with the prince of this world.
Excerpts from dailymail: "Care homes for the elderly should discourage Christian workers who do not believe in gay rights, say inspectors."
"State inspectors say they should "support" homosexuals so they feel "able to come out if they wish".
Those applying for jobs should be "assessed" to ensure they have the right attitude to equality, the Commission for Social Care Inspection says.

An employment tribunal has ordered an Anglican bishop to undergo equal opportunities training after losing a discrimination case against a homosexual who sought a position as a youth worker.
The Bishop of Hereford, the Right Rev Anthony Priddis, is alleged to have discriminated against John Reaney, 42, by failing to appoint him as a church youth worker. The tribunal also ordered the Bishop to pay Reaney £47,345 in compensation and stated that the staff in the diocese of Hereford should also receive equal opportunities training.
Ben Summerskill, the chief executive of Stonewall, the radically pro-homosexual organization that funded the claim against the bishop, said that this would involve helping the Bishop to develop an understanding of how to deal with people from minority communities as well as explaining to him that asking intimate questions about people’s private lives is not an appropriate thing to do during a job interview.
Mr Summerskill also said: “Normally training would take half a day or a day but [the Bishop] might need Read More...
"The written law is said to be given for the correction of the natural law, either because it supplies what was wanting in the natural law; or because the natural law was perverted in the hearts of some men, as to certain matters so that they esteemed those things good which are naturally evil, which perversion stood in need of correction." St Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica (13th cent)
How times have changed--t he written law has now become the enabler and even the promoter of man's perversities.
Excerpt from the Telegraph: "Health authorities are considering paying up to £15,000 to surrogate mothers to help homosexual couples have children.
"North Essex Primary Care Trust has been asked to pay toward a surrogate mother. The PCT said it would also have to consider whether to pay toward surrogates for homosexual couples and single people.
"In a report to the PCT, Dr Rebecca Gibbs said: "The majority of applications for surrogacy to be funded on the NHS stem from heterosexual couples, but consideration would need to be taken for any homosexual couple or single person who wished to become a parent through surrogacy."
"The North Essex PCT said no firm decision had been taken on the issue."

THE ACCEPTANCE AND NORMALIZATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF HOMOSEXUALS
The increasing acceptance of homosexuality is not only indicative of our moral decline but it also has the potential to "convert" many to full or part time homosexuality. Our children are now exposed to a vast amount of pro-homosexual indoctrination by the sex-obsessed media, by public schools and by peers. All of this exposure is capable of spreading the sin of sodomy like wildfire throughout our culture. This is clearly substantiated by recent census related statistics:
In the state of Utah alone: "According to U.S. Census figures, only 401 gay and lesbian couples declared themselves in 1990. In 2000, that number jumped dramatically to 3,370. The latest findings...reveal 6,503 out gay couples, an increase of over 1,600 percent since 1990.
"Overall, the study showed an increase of 437 percent nation-wide from 1990 to 2006."
"Census Bureau figures showing continuing increases in the number of same-sex couples track with other surveys showing that more Americans than ever before are identifying as lesbian, gay and bisexual." from Qsaltlake
Acceptance of homosexuality clearly emboldens those who are on the fence or simply curious to take the plunge into the abyss.
If the statistics aren't convincing how about biblical proof that homosexuality has the potential of spreading among the populace? Recall the story of the destruction of Sodom. Before God destroyed the city, Abraham approached God and pleaded with Him not to destroy the good with the wicked. God relented and stated that He would not destroy Sodom if 50 good men could be found. But Abraham, knowing that this might be an impossible task, convinced God to reduce the number of men to a mere 10.
As the story goes- 10 good men could not be found in Sodom. However, before God destroyed the city He sent His angels to assess the level of depravity. As Lot fed God's angels his home was surrounded by Sodomites:
"they had not yet retired when the townsmen...all of the people Read More...

SACRAMENTO, Oct. 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed into law two bills requiring all public school instruction and activities to positively portray transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten. He has also signed bills undermining marriage and infringing upon the moral conscience of business owners, churches, and nonprofit organizations.
Late Friday, Schwarzenegger signed SB 777 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of schoolchildren by requiring changes to all instruction and activities) and AB 394 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of students, parents, and teachers via "anti-harassment" training). Signing the bills was a switch for Schwarzenegger, who vetoed nearly the same bills last year, in the midst of his reelection campaign.
"Arnold Schwarzenegger has delivered young children into the hands of those who will introduce them to alternative sexual lifestyles," said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF), which helped lead the statewide charge against these bills. "This means children as young as five years old Read More...

On Wednesday Jerusalem authorities issued a permit for a gay pride parade sponsored by the homosexual-lesbian Open House organization. The parade is to take place in the heart of Jerusalem on Thursday, and is expected to go forward with 7,000 police officers assigned to keep order. Both the organizers and the police fear violence during the march, after an Orthodox man stabbed and wounded three marchers during the 2005 parade.
A poll conducted last week by Geocartography Knowledge Group found that 64 percent of Jewish Israelis oppose holding the Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem. The 64% either voiced complete opposition to the parade or agreed with the following statement:
"Even if authorities permit the homo-lesbian pride parade in Tel Aviv or in other cities, it should be banned in Jerusalem due to the sanctity of the city in the eyes of many in Israel and in the world, and because of the sensitivity of more than half of Jerusalem's population who are religious."
Jerusalem Open House Director Noa Satat said the survey reflected a marked rise in support for the parade, which would go ahead on Thursday as planned.
"The Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem is not a provocation and not a party," Satat said. Holding it in Jerusalem, with its heavily religious population, "expresses a [special] message of both pride and tolerance.
Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, the honorary president of a revived version of the Sanhedrin, issued a press release calling on Jews to protest the parade. He stated: "The previous parade brought upon us the Second Lebanon War, with Read More...

Northern Ireland's largest Protestant church yesterday adopted guidelines to help clergy deal sensitively with gay church members.
The Presbyterian General Assembly in Belfast adopted the pastoral guidelines by 159 votes to 120.
It calls on the church to repent for times when gay people have been treated in ways that lack "grace."
They ask for the church to create a "PCI Safe Space" which can be phoned or visited anonymously by people who wish to discuss their sexuality.
Church members are also told to modify their language and avoid phrases such as "Love the sinner, hate the sin," or "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve."
The report also dispels the myth that gay people are paedophiles.
Former moderator Rev Dr Ken Newell said it was his hope that the whole church would apologise to gay people "for any hurt that you have experienced."
He said: "To put it simply, Read More...

New radical legislation, mandating that schoolchildren as young as kindergarten learn about transsexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality, has passed the California State Senate.
SB 777 requires textbooks, instructional materials, and school-sponsored activities to positively portray cross-dressing, sex-change operations, same-sex marriages, all aspects of homosexuality and bisexuality, and so-called "gay history." Silence on these sexual lifestyles will not be allowed.

The courageous leadership in Poland makes me wish I was Polish--but at least my children are. Poland seems to have found the recipe to avoid the Death of the West.
From Worldnet Daily: WARSAW – Nearly 70 years after the invasion of Poland marked the beginning of a major global cataclysm, the Central European nation once again finds itself confronting a foe it sees as a threat to Western civilization.
While the rest of Europe largely accommodates a rising tide of secularism, many Polish leaders are prepared to fight back with a bold, traditional social agenda they envision not only for their own country but for the continent and the world.
Poland's vice premier and minister of education, Roman Giertych told the World Congress of Families here his multi-pronged plan – including a proposal issued last month to ban "homosexual propaganda" in schools – is "something I have to do."
"The family is the hope for Poland, the hope for Europe, the hope for the entire world," the 36-year-old leader told the global gathering of more than 3,200 from 75 nations. "... Without the family, there is no nation, there is no continent, there is no civilization, there is Read More...
Shall we label this a convenient conversion?
From the Washington Times:
Former New Jersey Gov. James E. McGreevey, who resigned and divorced his second wife after announcing he was "a gay American" in 2004, has begun the process of becoming an Episcopal priest.
Mr. McGreevey, who was raised Roman Catholic and often described himself as devout during his political campaigns, became an Episcopalian on Sunday at St. Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan, said the Rev. Kevin Bean, the church's vicar. Mr. Bean told the Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., that Mr. McGreevey has entered the "discernment" phase, which involves examining whether one has a calling to the ministry and usually precedes seminary work.
"This process that he's in right now is not going to be some Read More...
Lately I have become increasingly disappointed in our culture and where we are headed. The radical homosexual agenda has so effectively spread its message, and continues to do so at an alarming rate, not only among adults, but more importantly among our children. Man is no longer concerned with "sin" which offends God, instead he is concerned with offending his fellow man's feelings about himself.
A culture that immerses itself in the pursuit of mortal sin cannot grasp the things of God. We have become a culture that is impervious to God's grace. The depth of the blindness and disregard to spiritual realities is unsurpassed historically and unsurpassed in depravity. Satan knows that the corruption of youth is the key to the future, and apparently so do his cohorts. This world is his dominion and he seals his citizens with a deadly mark on the soul. No wonder souls are said to be falling like snowflakes into hell.
These are a must watch couple of videos--click here. We cannot turn a blind eye to the methods used to corrupt our youth--no matter how disturbing. We must expose the darkness so that we can effectively do battle for souls.
But amidst the darkness of our wholehearted acceptance of homosexuality as equal to heterosexuality, is a nation that seems to be hanging on by a thread to the truths of God and His church. It is a nation that is clearly like a lamb in the midst Read More...
St. John Chrysostom said "There is nothing worse than blasphemy". The truth of his statement is evident in the following story.
From Indystar.com: "Two local billboards that are part of a broad ad campaign aimed at showing Biblical support for homosexuality were hit over the weekend by spray-paint-wielding vandals.
"Starting last week, the national gay advocacy group Faith in America leased space on 22 billboards around Indianapolis to spread messages like “Jesus affirmed a gay couple” and “Jesus said some people are born gay.” It corresponds with 1,000 yard signs carrying similar messages that were sponsored by the Jesus Metropolitan Community Church, an Indianapolis church that teaches God’s acceptance of homosexuality.

VATICAN CITY: The Vatican's second-highest ranking doctrinal official has forcefully branded homosexual marriage an evil and denounced abortion and euthanasia as forms of "terrorism with a human face".
The attack by Archbishop Angelo Amato, secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, was the latest in a string of speeches made by either Pope Benedict or other Vatican officials as Italy considers giving more rights to gays.
In an address to chaplains, Amato said newspapers and television bulletins often seemed like "a perverse film about evil".
He denounced "evils that remain almost invisible" because the media presented them as "expression of human progress".
He listed these as abortion clinics, which he called "slaughterhouses of human Read More...
It was very refreshing to recently see Poland take a counter-cultural stand against the radical homosexual agenda and protect its school children from pro-homosexual indoctrination and propaganda. The EU however is culling its many laws on discrimination in order to find a basis to punish Poland's unpopular position.
