I can relate to that sense of being in a “strange” country as this crap goes down in our nation. Makes you want to run away to somewhere where it is safe and sound. But there’s no place to run anymore....we were once that place and the final place sought.

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever." -- Thomas Jefferson

Thank you...worthy of repeating.

The real reasons sex pervert pushers want same sex marriage, and it’s not about lifelong monogamy and happy “families”.

From LA Times of March 12: ...
“Divided over gay marriage” by Roy Rivenburg Paula Ettelbrick, a law professor who runs the International Gay & Lesbian Human Rights Commission, recommends legalizing a wide variety of marriage alternatives, including polyamory, or group wedlock. An example could include a lesbian couple living with a sperm-donor father, or a network of men and women who share sexual relations.
One aim, she says, is to break the stranglehold that married heterosexual couples have on health benefits and legal rights. The other goal is to “push the parameters of sex, sexuality and family, and in the process transform the very fabric of society.” ... [snip]

An excerpt from: In Their Own Words: The Homosexual Agenda:
“Homosexual activist Michelangelo Signorile, who writes periodically for The New York Times, summarizes the agenda in OUT magazine (Dec/Jan 1994):

“A middle ground might be to fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completely, to demand the right to marry not as a way of adhering to society’s moral codes, but rather to debunk a myth and radically alter an archaic institution... The most subversive action lesbian and gay men can undertake —and one that would perhaps benefit all of society—is to transform the notion of family entirely.”

“Its the final tool with which to dismantle all sodomy statues, get education about homosexuality and AIDS into the public schools and in short to usher in a sea change in how society views and treats us.”

Chris Crain, the editor of the Washington Blade has stated that all homosexual activists should fight for the legalization of same-sex marriage as a way of gaining passage of federal anti-discrimination laws that will provide homosexuals with federal protection for their chosen lifestyle.

Crain writes: “...any leader of any gay rights organization who is not prepared to throw the bulk of their efforts right now into the fight for marriage is squandering resources and doesn’t deserve the position.” (Washington Blade, August, 2003).

Andrew Sullivan, a homosexual activist writing in his book, Virtually Normal, says that once same-sex marriage is legalized, heterosexuals will have to develop a greater “understanding of the need for extramarital outlets between two men than between a man and a woman.”

He notes: “The truth is, homosexuals are not entirely normal; and to flatten their varied and complicated lives into a single, moralistic model is to miss what is essential and exhilarating about their otherness.” (Sullivan, Virtually Normal, pp. 202-203)

Paula Ettelbrick, a law professor and homosexual activist has said:
“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 goals of providing true alternatives to marriage and of radically reordering society’s view of reality.” (partially quoted in “Beyond Gay Marriage,”

Stanley Kurtz, The Weekly Standard, August 4, 2003)
Evan Wolfson has stated:

“Isn’t having the law pretend that there is only one family model that works (let alone exists) a lie? . marriage is not just about procreation-indeed is not necessarily about procreation at all. “(quoted in “What Marriage Is For,” by Maggie Gallagher, The Weekly Standard, August 11, 2003)

Mitchel Raphael, editor of the Canadian homosexual magazine Fab, says:

“Ambiguity is a good word for the feeling among gays about marriage. I’d be for marriage if I thought gay people would challenge and change the institution and not buy into the traditional meaning of ‘till death do us part’ and monogamy forever. We should be Oscar Wildes and not like everyone else watching the play.” (quoted in “Now Free To Marry, Canada’s Gays Say, ‘Do I?’” by Clifford Krauss, The New York Times, August 31, 2003)

1972 Gay Rights Platform Demands: “Repeal of all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or number of persons entering into a marriage unit.”

[Also among the demands was the elimination of all age of consent laws.]

And we call ourselves “civilized”???????

As said..I fear so much for our nation...with leaders determining these things... which fly in the very face of God.... This is not going to go well for us.

“The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom”.......not fearing Him is the beginning stupidity...”It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living GOd.”

It’s really beyond a shame mojo....these things just keep on reflecting the twisted and empty minds and hearts of the leadership in our nation states. We are so moving at breakneck speed down the corridor of self-destruction.

No nation has survived who has turned their back on God and followed the path we are on....Rome is burning and our leaders are fueling the flames.

The bottom line is even the homosexual movement and agenda is about destroying our country..though their activists use the wording “changing” the fabric of our society...just as Obama did. It’s not about’s about destruction.

Anymore when I hear someone use the word “change” it’s a huge heads up for me to expect trouble and destruction.

I wonder how soon it will be these wonderful monuments also will be “changed” or destroyed. I think my heart is on top of my shoes...once again this night. Tomorrow will be a new day and we’ll be up and fighting once again.

Well said. It is only love that casts out the fear; but the fear is the cold bucket of water/wakeup call. It's the medicine that is the only cure.

The Pope should just ex communicate these Non Catholics, they don’t believe in the tenants of the religion. Why do you want them in your church!

God won't be grieving alone. The conditions in the world today are exactly as they were during Noah's time. We are on borrowed time. I believe that, for America, one day it will just be over. I believe that once the Church in America is taken out, the total absence of God will descend on this nation and those who are here will know what it really means to be rid of the Person they so despise. They will know what is really means to have the One Who keeps everything going gone.

This present dispensation of grace is ending like all the others have - with man's failure and God's judgment.

Yes indeed....and its all moving at a rapid pace currently. Alarming how Russia, China and Iran are truly emboldened and moving fast across the International stage without any fear anyone will stand in their way...because nobody is.
