During the grand jury proceedings that led to the indictment, the victim testified that a counselor referred him to Big Brothers Big Sisters because he was having trouble with his parents' divorce. "I was seeing a counselor and they said it would be a...

    AgapePress) - One of the nation's largest mentoring organizations is discovering that some of its chapters are having trouble getting liability insurance because they allow homosexuals to be mentors for kids. According to Family News in Focus, several chapters of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) may be forced to shut down because insurance companies are charging higher premiums or even refusing to write policies because of the "gay" mentors. In 2002, BBBSA began requiring its chapters to allow open homosexuals to serve as mentors for children participating in its programs. That policy -- especially in light of the...

    Lesbian bride dolls. Fourth grade "gay" clubs. A king and king at the high school prom. Dating tips for same-sex teens. Bathroom ogling -- and sometimes quick encounters -- in the middle school boys' restroom. These are just the first snapshots of the bizarre new world in store for American children if homosexual marriage is legalized. Most of the major players who mold our youth have already endorsed homosexuality and even cross-dressing. The National Education Association, the nation's largest teachers' union, favors support for "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender" students and teachers, which translates into uncritical acceptance throughout the curriculum...

    You signed the petition Tell Big Brothers, Sisters no on homosexuals. You were joined by 22285 other people who also signed this petition. The fight to shape up Big Brothers Big Sisters of America may soon need to change. In addition to keeping homosexuals and pedophiles out as mentors of young boys, a wider objective should be keeping Christians in that organization. Here's why: A man in Whatcom County, WA, reportedly was turned down as a mentor in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program due to his Christian standards. That's right: Dan Pritchett, who works for a company that makes...

    Family Group Cautions Schools on Homosexual Mentoring A pro-family group has sent letters to public school superintendents across the country warning of increased liability risks for public school officials if homosexuals mentor children through the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) program. "As the recent scandals in the Catholic Church demonstrate, when an adult uses a position of authority and influence to take advantage of a young person, immeasurable harm can be inflicted both to individuals and to institutions," Benjamin Bull, chief counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund, said in a letter to state boards of education and...

    At least a dozen executive directors of local Big Brothers Big Sisters affiliates are defying a new directive from national headquarters requiring them to allow homosexuals to mentor children of the same gender, according to a World magazine report. The dissenting executive directors interviewed by the magazine spoke on condition of anonymity fearing reprisals from national headquarters and their own local directors. Local affiliates of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America are independently funded and managed, paying about $5,500 in annual dues for the privilege of using the organizational name, fund-raising machinery and administrative support. One Midwestern director said he...

    Washington, DC (CNS News.com)--A pro-family group is calling on Congress to require that public schools that sponsor Big Brother, Big Sister programs notify parents if a proposed mentor is homosexual. The Big Brother, Big Sister program recently implemented a policy that bans discrimination against open homosexuals who want to serve as volunteers and mentors to children at 500 affiliates nationwide. In his letter to Congress, Eugene Delgaudio, executive director of Public Advocate of U.S., warned that under the new policy, parents, "will not be told of the adult's sexual preference," a policy that he said "puts children at risk." "Action...

    Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA), founded almost a century ago, is the largest one-on-one mentoring program in the world. With 500 affiliates across America, it’s been widely respected and boasts Microsoft, the NFL, Pillsbury, UPS and others as corporate sponsors. That may be about to change, at least the part about being widely respected. BBBSA turned a corner earlier this month by approving a resolution not to exclude a mentor for various reasons, including "sexual orientation." Yes, we’re talking homosexuals here. This policy has been in effect at the national level for several months, but now it’s mandated...

    It's a brave new world at your local Big Brothers Big Sisters office. As of this month, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) will require that all 500 of its local affiliates include active homosexuals as volunteers and mentors to children. Many parents who support Big Brothers Big Sisters may be surprised to learn that their child could soon be paired with a gay or lesbian mentor. In fact, parents whose children are enrolled in the organization's school-based programs will not even be told when their son or daughter is matched with a gay man or a lesbian woman....
