Antigay group offers advice on 'battling the homosexual agenda in 2013'

News release from the antigay group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality:

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 9, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), offers the following resolutions for pro-family advocates opposing the "gay" and transgender agenda in 2013:

  1. Get OFF the defense, and back on offense -- (get rid of that false guilt and incapacitating ambivalence; YOU are defending Truth; homosexual activists are promoting immorality, self-deception and lies).
  2. Follow God and not man (shore up your biblical beliefs) -- do you fear God or the reaction of people?
  3. "Question Authority": Don't trust elites -- even "conservatives" -- on the homosexual issue (e.g., Newt Gingrich's recent capitulation urging a GOP accommodation on "marriage equality"). [See Numbers 9 and 12.]
  4. Get back to the BEHAVIOR and its consequences (try Googling "MSM [men who have sex with men], CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], HIV" or "MSM, CDC, Syphilis").
  5. Get off the opponents' playing field: it starts with restoring honest language in the debate. (e.g, counterfeit homosexual "marriage" is not equal to the real deal, so the "gay" term "Marriage Equality" is spurious).
  6. Recognize, dismiss and counter homosexual activists' lies and propaganda (e.g, defending morality is neither "hate" nor bigotry).
  7. Understand that this debate is really about homosexuality, not just "defending marriage."
  8. [Corollary] Stay principled; take the pledge: I will NEVER say or do anything that affirms homosexual, bisexual or gender-confused ("transgender") behavior as acceptable.
  9. Don't rely on the Republicans or put their agenda before God's -- but instead push them to LEAD and do what's right (and you moral Democrats need to fight evil within your party).
  10. Embrace and rally behind common sense; send political correctness packing (e.g., do transsexual men with fake breasts and real penises really belong in girls' locker rooms?).
  11. STOP assuming "gay" victories are inevitable and irreversible (and don't succumb to the media's intense pro-homosexual bias).
  12. [Related to #3] Think for yourself and don't rely on FOX News to defend the Truth on homosexuality (e.g., did you know that Bill O'Reilly has pretty much switched sides?).
  13. Call out the liberal media and educational establishment on their routine pro-homosexual and anti-Christian bias.
  14. Educate a libertarian -- on the clear and present threat that all pro-LGBT laws (including homosexual "marriage") pose to civil liberties and religious freedom.
  15. Educate a pro-lifer about the threat of the far-reaching homosexual-bisexual-transgender agenda (many pro-lifers are naive or ignorant about the homosexual agenda and its many parallels to their core concern).
  16. Be a thoughtful, truly compassionate Christian (tough, godly love requires that you uphold biblical sexual values and firmly guide your loved one away from embracing sinful, destructive -- and changeable -- behaviors).
  17. Be a Happy Warrior and understand the big picture: defending Truth is VIRTUOUS, and besides: it's not our truth, it's God's (and don't play into our opponent's stereotype of Christians as self-righteous, angry prudes).
  18. Don't be lazy: THINK!...then act (refuting "gay" myths, shibboleths and talking points is not rocket science).
  19. Patiently engage a young person on the "H" issue: are they entitled to reinvent centuries of Judeo-Christian tradition and teaching on love, relationships, family, and marriage? (Answer: no, but we first need to understand the cultural zeitgeist through which they view the world -- and the steady stream of LGBT misinformation they are imbibing -- before we can respond to it).
  20. Reserve your greatest outrage for those who affirm homosexuality in the name of God (the "gay Christianity" movement is a sham and they must be held to a higher standard).

These are excellent recommendations. Thank you for sharing!

*Sigh* If they take the mantle of this being a question of morality and base their objections on biblical beliefs, we have a few more rules to follow. No divorce, no tattoos, no women in a position of authority over men, no cutting of the bangs after marriage, hope you like kosher, death to those who work on Sunday, etc. Somehow, the morality restricting one's own behavior (we call it "accountability") is not quite as trumpeted as the morality of those considered an external threat.
