UGANDAN SODOMY FOE WON’T BOW TO U.S. PRESSURE
"KAMPALA, UGANDA – A Ugandan lawmaker refused Friday to withdraw proposed legislation that would impose the death penalty for some gay men and lesbians despite international condemnation and presidential opposition to a measure that some critics said could scare off foreign investors.
"Lawmaker David Bahati said he will not heed a call late Thursday from the government to drop the proposed bill, which has provoked criticism from gay rights groups and protests in London, New York and Washington."
CHILDREN NEED PROTECTION FROM HOMO RECRUITMENT
" ‘We have our children in schools to protect against being recruited into’ homosexuality, Bahati said. ‘The process of legislating a law to protect our children against homosexuality and defending our family values must go on.’ The country’s parliament is expected to debate the measure in late February or early March.
"Although President Yoweri Museveni has told colleagues that he believes the bill is too harsh and has encouraged his ruling National Resistance Movement Party to overturn the death sentence provision, Information Minister Kabakumba Matsiko said the parliament will act independently.
"Several lawmakers and officials from the ruling party said this week that they will push to remove the death penalty statute. They have proposed instead that gays receive counseling to convert them to heterosexuality. …"
SAME SEX RAPE WOULD YIELD DEATH PENALTY
"Current legislation imposes seven years in prison. Under the new law, the death sentence could apply to sexually active gays living with HIV or in cases of same-sex rape. The law would also include Ugandans living abroad, who could be extradited and punished." Source: Associated Press, The Washington Post, 1/9/10, p. A7
SOROS PUSHES SODOMY WITH HILLARY’S HELP
"The State Department may not be able to keep terrorists out of the United States, but Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has enough time on her hands to spend 45 minutes complaining to the President of Uganda about an effort in that country to toughen laws against homosexuality."
UGANDA WANTS TO STOP SEX TRAFFICKERS
"The President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, says that Clinton spoke to him for 45 minutes about the proposed legislation, which hasn’t even been the subject of hearings by the parliament. Museveni, who rules over a conservative East African country that is 85 percent Christian, said that he told Clinton that the bill will be considered by the appropriate authorities and that he had heard that homosexuals come from Europe and recruit young people using money. He said that Mrs. Clinton agreed that such practices constituted sexual exploitation.
"Officially, the State Department opposes human trafficking for sexual purposes. Its Office To Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, led by Ambassador Luis C. de Baca, is supposed to ‘provide the tools to combat trafficking in persons and assists in the coordination of anti-trafficking efforts both worldwide and domestically.’ "
SOROS PROMOTES PROTECTION FOR PERVERTS
"Mrs. Clinton’s preoccupation with Uganda’s opposition to homosexuality may have something to do with the fact that billionaire George Soros, a major financial backer of the Democratic Party and President Obama, has been funding efforts in Africa to promote the interests of ‘sexual minorities.’ Obama has embraced the ‘gay rights’ agenda.
"In February of 2009, the Soros-funded Open Society Initiative for East Africa, in partnership with Media Development in Africa (MEDEVA), boasts that it ‘successfully broadcast the first ever television program featuring sexual minority rights in Uganda.’ "
HOORAY FOR UGANDA
"The Open Society Institute said the program was necessary because ‘Uganda is a country that currently criminalizes homosexuality and commercial sex work, and has repeatedly made efforts to silence sexual rights activists.’ The term ‘sex work’ is another name for prostitution. The Open Society Institute wants Uganda to expand rights for homosexuals and legalize prostitution.
"Before that, the Open Society Institute held a four-day workshop on legal strategies ‘to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights in Africa.’ "
WHY IS JONATHAN CAPEHART ON "THE McLAUGHLIN GROUP"?
"Homosexual media activists in the U.S. such as Rachel Maddow of MSNBC and Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post have falsely depicted the bill in Uganda as an effort to kill homosexuals. In fact, it is designed to save lives by restricting dangerous homosexual practices, including pedophilia, child rape, and the deliberate spreading of the AIDS virus. The controversial death penalty provision, which even some pro-family activists in the U.S. find objectionable, is for crimes of ‘aggravated homosexuality.’
"Capehart has said that Uganda, which is heavily dependent on foreign aid, should be deprived of foreign assistance if the bill becomes law. Capehart and some foreign homosexuals are clamoring for the bill to be withdrawn from the Ugandan Parliament or vetoed if passed. But the Christians in Uganda want to keep these dangerous foreign influences out of their country."
HOMOS RECRUIT SCHOOL KIDS WITH U.N. HELP
"George Oundo, a former homosexual, has confessed that he recruited school children into homosexuality as part of a program funded by foreign interests and operating in Uganda under the cover of a group called Sexual Minorities Uganda. The United Nations has been caught distributing a pamphlet encouraging homosexuality among teenagers."
UGANDA REMEMBERS PEDOPHILE MONARCH
"Interestingly, one of the few mainstream media stories to explore the issue in somewhat objective fashion appeared on National Public Radio. Barbara Bradley Hagerty noted in her story that ‘To understand how this bill came to be, one needs to know the story of King Mwanga. In 1886, Uganda’s king ordered some two dozen male pages to have sex with him, and when they refused because of their Christian faith, he ordered that they be burned to death. Every year on June 3, Ugandans celebrate a national holiday honoring the Christian martyrs and deploring the pedophile king.’ …"
GOVERNMENT ELITES LOBBY FOR THE FAGGOTS
"A pastor’s group in Uganda that represents all of the major religious groups in the country supports the basic thrust of the law and talks about the ‘Unbelievable growth in the power of the homosexual lobby in western countries, clearly seen since this Bill was proposed in Uganda...’ It says that ‘entire governments in Europe and America have used their diplomatic offices’ against Uganda.
"This was confirmed by Museveni, who said, ‘When I was at the Commonwealth meeting, the Prime Minister of Canada came to see me about gays. [British] Prime Minister Gordon Brown came to see me about gays, Carson rang me about Somalia and gays and Mrs. Clinton rang to talk to me about gays.’ Carson is U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Johnnie Carson. …
"Pressure on Uganda to abandon the pro-family legislation is also being applied by open homosexual Democratic Reps. Barney Frank (Mass.), Tammy Baldwin (Wisc.), and Jared Polis (Col.). On the Senate side, Democratic Senator Ron Wyden, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee’s subcommittee on International Trade, Customs and Global Competitiveness, has warned Uganda it could lose favorable trading status if it proceeds with the legislation. Wyden contends that homosexuality is an international human right. …"
USA IS A HORRIBLE PRO-HOMO EXAMPLE
"The pastors group in Uganda wants to avoid happening to Uganda what has already happened in the United States. It condemns the ‘take-over by homosexuals of western institutions that should have remained as defenders and protectors of moral integrity in society, particularly the church, to the extent that even evangelical church leaders in America no longer protest when a practicing homosexual is appointed into pastoral leadership in the church...’
"The group adds, ‘This institutional takeover by homosexuals has been systematic and planned, to the extent that other bodies like the UN, national governments, financial institutions, private companies, NGOs, etc. have become spokespersons of the gay movement and daily use official resources to promote the gay agenda and to arm-twist anyone who opposes this agenda. In a globalized world, this western takeover of institutions by homosexuals has turned into international promotion of homosexuality and of other vices like abortion and pornography in other countries.’ …"
RICK WARREN GIVES AID AND COMFORT TO CHRIST’S ENEMIES
"However, American pastor Rick Warren had his arms twisted and is now urging Ugandan pastors to oppose the bill. Curiously, Warren Throckmorton of Grove City College, a conservative Christian institution, has been working with homosexual bloggers and anti-Christian activists to kill the legislation."

EEOC TO BE A HAVEN FOR HOMOSEXUALITY
"President Obama’s nomination of Chai Feldblum to be a member of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) represents one of the most serious threats to religious freedom we have seen in a long time. True, we have seen other radical homosexual [activists] nominated to significant posts (see Kevin Jennings, among others), but the current political and cultural climate, the particular position, Feldblum’s reputation among the liberal elites and her extremely radical views are a lethal combination. Lethal for the First Amendment, that is."
RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AT RISK
"Feldblum is a radical homosexual activist whose views on ‘homosexual rights’ are among the most extreme. Although our right to religious freedom is expressly guaranteed by the Constitution, Feldblum argues that the ‘homosexual rights’ judges have read into the Constitution should be held higher. She has said, ‘As a general matter, once a religious person or institution enters the stream of commerce ... I believe the enterprise must adhere to a norm of nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity….’ "
"Under Miss Feldblum’s view, a Christian person running a daycare could not refuse to hire a man who dresses as a woman from a job taking care of your kids. You, as the owner of that business, must suppress your religious beliefs, which are again expressly guaranteed by the Constitution, just because you want to work to take care of your family. …
"She has worked for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the radically pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign (HRC), is a law professor at the Georgetown University Law School, clerked for First Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Frank M. Coffin, and also clerked for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun – the infamous liberal activist who authored the disastrous Roe v. Wade decision. …
"After a lifetime of radical activism for ‘homosexual rights,’ does anybody doubt where her focus will be when working for ‘equal employment?’ The government should not use its power to advocate one group of people over another, especially when that advocacy infringes on fundamental constitutional rights. This week, the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions is set to take up Feldblum’s nomination, and unless we make our voices heard, her nomination will go through unscathed, and we will pay the consequences for years to come."

TO OBAMA "SEXUAL ORIENTATION" IS AN INTEGRAL COMPONENT OF "DIVERSITY"
"Vice President Joe Biden cited the administration’s belief that sexual orientation is an important element of diversity before swearing in last week the first openly gay U.S. ambassador nominated by President Obama.
" ‘I believe and President Obama strongly believes that America projects its best face to the world when it reflects the true diversity of our country – whether it’s race, religion, gender or sexual orientation,’ he said."
A PERVERT AMBASSADOR TO NEW ZEALAND
"Biden made brief remarks before swearing in David Huebner as the U.S. ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa. The U.S. Senate confirmed Huebner for the role last month.
"Standing next to Huebner during the ceremony was Duane McWaine, his partner of 20 years and a psychiatrist. The mothers of Huebner and McWaine also were in the audience, and were escorted by Biden. …"
HUEBNER WAS GENERAL COUNSEL FOR GLAAD
"Most recently head of the Shanghai-based China & International Disputes division for the law firm Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton, Huebner also has a history in LGBT activism. He served as a board member of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and served as the group’s general counsel, according to a GLAAD statement released when Huebner was nominated. …
"The appointment of Hueber makes him the third openly gay ambassador to serve the U.S. President Bill Clinton nominated James Hormel as U.S. ambassador to Luxembourg, and former President George W. Bush nominated Michael Guest as U.S. ambassador to Romania." Source: Chris Johnson, dcagenda.com, 12/11/09, p. 15

SOME OF GWB’S JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ATTORNEYS ARE HOMO ACTIVISTS WHO PROMOTED ARREST OF SODOMY FOES
"Homosexual attorneys from the U.S. Justice Department Civil Rights Division not only attended a large homosexual event in Philadelphia last year, but they advised police on the scene who arrested 11 Christian protesters, says a source within the agency. …
"As WorldNetDaily reported, on Oct. 10, the group was ‘preaching God’s Word’ to a crowd of people attending the Philadelphia event and displaying banners with biblical messages.
"After a confrontation with a group called the Pink Angels, described by protesters as ‘a militant mob of homosexuals,’ the 11 Christians were arrested and spent a night in jail.
"Eight charges were filed: criminal conspiracy, possession of instruments of crime, reckless endangerment of another person, ethnic intimidation, riot, failure to disperse, disorderly conduct and obstructing highways.
"None of the Pink Angels was cited or arrested."
10-11% OF DOJ LAWYERS ALLEGED TO BE ACTIVE SODOMITES
"After a preliminary hearing in December, Judge William Austin Meehan ordered four of the Christians to stand trial on three felony and five misdemeanor charges. If convicted, they could get a maximum of 47 years in prison. One female teenage protester faces charges in the juvenile justice system. …
"The Justice source said he estimated between 10 and 11 percent of the attorneys in the Civil Rights Division are homosexual. He said he believes the protesters were charged with ethnic intimidation ‘at the recommendation of some of our attorneys who were at the march.’ …
"Brian Fahling, senior trial attorney for the American Family Association’s Center for Law & Policy, is representing the Christian defendants. He was not surprised that Department of Justice attorneys may have attended OutFest. …"
PREACHING THE BIBLE CHARGED TO BE AN ACT OF BELLIGERANCE
"Fahling said that at the preliminary hearing in December, the Philadelphia city prosecutor in the case, Charles Ehrlich, attacked the defendants as ‘hateful’ and referred to preaching the Bible as ‘fighting words,’ a characterization, the law group says, with which Judge Meehan agreed. …
"The ethnic intimidation charge stems from Pennsylvania's ‘hate crimes’ law – to which the newest ‘victim’ category of ‘sexual orientation’ was recently added." Source: Ron Strom, www.worldnetdaily.com, 1/5/05

ARLEN SPECTER AND 17 OTHER GOP SENATORS ADVANCE THE HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA
On June 15, the following Republican Senators joined the homosexual lobby to vote in favor of so-called "hate crimes" legislation:
|Alexander (Tenn.), Allen (Va.), Bennett (Utah), Campbell (Colo.), Chafee (R.I.), Coleman (Minn.), Collins (Maine), DeWine (Ohio), Ensign (Nev.), Gregg (N.H.), Lugar (Ind.), Murkowski (Alaska), Smith (Ore.), Snowe (Maine), Specter (Penn.), Stevens (Alaska), Voinovich (Ohio), and Warner (Va.)|
The vote to pass this amendment (#3183, to S. 2400, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005) was 65 in favor, 33 opposed, with 2 not voting. No Democrat voted against the proposal, which was heavily pushed by Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, who has been backed by President Bush to be the next Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
HOMO MARRIAGE AMENDMENT WOULD ALTER CORE CONSTITUTIONAL PRINCIPLES
"Marriage and divorce laws have always been crafted by states. In an ideal world, state governments enforce marriage contracts and settle divorces, but otherwise stay out of marriage. The federal government, granted only limited, enumerated powers in the Constitution, has no role whatsoever."
CONGRESS DETERMINES CONSTITUTIONAL MEANING OF "FULL FAITH AND CREDIT" VIA DOMA
"However, many Americans understandably fear that if gay marriage is legalized in one state, all other states will be forced to accept such marriages. They argue that the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution essentially federalizes the issue; hence a constitutional amendment is necessary.
"But the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), passed in 1996, explicitly authorizes states to refuse to recognize gay marriages performed in other states. Furthermore, the Supreme Court repeatedly has interpreted the Full Faith and Credit clause to allow Congress to limit the effect of state laws on other states. In fact, federal courts almost universally apply the clause only to state court judgments, not statutes. So a constitutional amendment is not necessary to address the issue of gay marriage, and will only drive yet another nail into the coffin of federalism."
REGULATION OF FAMILY RELATIONS IS NOT A FEDERAL FUNCTION
"If we turn regulation of even domestic family relations over to the federal government, presumably anything can be federalized.
"The choices are not limited to either banning gay marriage at the federal level, or giving up and accepting it as inevitable.
CONSTITUTION RESTORATION ACT (CRA) WOULD LIMIT JURISDICTION OF FEDERAL COURTS
"A far better approach, rarely discussed, is for Congress to exercise its existing constitutional power to limit the jurisdiction of federal courts. Congress could statutorily remove whole issues like gay marriage from the federal judiciary, striking a blow against judicial tyranny and restoring some degree of states’ rights. We seem to have forgotten that the Supreme Court is supreme only over lower federal courts; it is not supreme over the other branches of government. The judiciary is co-equal under our federal system, but too often it serves as an unelected, unaccountable legislature." Source: Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), Texas Straight Talk, 3/1/04
CHURCHES ABANDON GOD’S LAW AGAINST BUGGERY IN FAVOR OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
"Where is this push to accept sodomites into our society as normal healthy law abiding citizens coming from? Does anyone believe that this could be coming from a well organized 5% of the population? Of course not. There must be a bigger paradigm shift going on somewhere that has empowered sodomites to think this country is ready for such dramatic change. It could be that many are tolerating Hollywood making sodomy pervasive in our entertainment. What about parents who allow the public school systems to teach sodomy to children as a normal ‘lifestyle’? The federal government for years has allowed ‘Gay Pride Celebrations’ during working hours on government property. Years ago [C]ongress signed into law ‘civil union’ benefits for homosexual partners of federal government employees."
HOMO PARTNERS GOT 9/11 DEATH BENEFITS
"Even President Bush signed a bill after 9-11 for the homosexual partners of firemen or ‘safety officers’ who died in the twin towers to receive $250,000 in death benefits. … What about the big corporations requiring mandatory diversity training courses and giving benefits to sodomites? Look at the universities. Here in Alabama where sodomy is still against the law, the University of Alabama allows sodomite clubs, women’s studies and benefits for homosexual employees’ partners. GLSEN is allowed to come into the schools and promote the ‘National Gay Day of Silence.’ All this without outrage from the people. Why not? …"
TOO MANY PRIESTS AND PASTORS HAVE LONG BEEN "SOFT ON SODOMY"
"Mainline denominations must accept full responsibility for this intrusion. You remember the old saying ‘I was country before country was cool.’ The churches were soft on sodomy long before the closet door opened and other institutions accepted this behavior or the government started promoting it. They are responsible for the paradigm shift that brings us to the destruction of marriage today. It has been incremental. Those in the pews would have revolted 50 years ago if their church accepted openly sodomites into the church. The adage ‘What we now tolerate, we will soon embrace’, is proven among these mainline denominations. …
"These churches have for many years allowed sodomites who openly flaunt their lifestyle, or I mean sin, to become members of their church. They soon started performing civil unions plus gay celebrations in these churches. Many were marrying them before it was legal. One great example is Foundry United Methodist Church in Washington D.C., where many of our public officials attend. Folks like Bob Dole and the Clintons. For many years this church had Gay Pride celebrations, with guest speakers who claim that the Lord Jesus Christ was a ‘drag queen’ and Paul was a sodomite.
"All of this was happening in the churches long before the rest of society would allow it. This lifestyle is accepted in the mainline denominations and now male and female sodomites are selected to be leaders, pastors, priests and even bishops. Had the churches been doing their jobs, homosexuals would still be in the closet, afraid to let the light of truth shine on their sin. They might even deal with their sin and live a healthy life. …
"The Word of God tells us that there will come a time when the pew dwellers will not endure sound doctrine. They will heap to themselves teachers who tell them what they want to hear. The pastors will promote lies and the people will love to have it so. This is the real cause of sodomite marriage in this country and the only cure is for God’s people to come back to His Word.

USAIDs PRO-SODOMY, PRO-PROMISCUITY SUBSIDIES CONTINUED BY BUSH ADMINISTRATION
"For the past several years, USAID, run by the U.S. State Department, has awarded multimillion dollar grants to promote homosexuality and promiscuity to teens throughout Central and South America, and Africa.
"In USAID-funded programs throughout Central America, children and teens are targeted with pamphlets and advertisements of colored and flavored condoms which depict the faces of young boys and children as young as seven years of age (cf. Y, Como No se Pasa, Fundacion Fomento en Salud, Honduras)."
AN ASSAULT ON CHRISTIAN MORALITY FUNDED WITH YOUR TAXES
"USAID-funded condom billboards appear in newspapers and on billboards overseas, in violation of local laws which require information about risks. In family planning clinics throughout Central America and Africa, IUDs and Depo-Provera are promoted to teens and women without adequate information about risks, in violation of informed consent provisions of U.S. law. In Honduras, IUDs are provided to anemic women without informed consent, and massive sterilization programs are promoted in government hospitals."
WHY DOES BUSH FUND PRO-HOMO PROPAGANDA?
"In Honduras, a USAID manual titled, Speaking About Sexuality With Young People, is aimed at getting boys and girls to acknowledge the existence of homosexuality in the population.
"According to this USAID manual, promoted in schools throughout Honduras, homosexuality fulfills an important role in the sexual socialization of youngsters. Youngsters today have to recognize the existence of male and female homosexuality. "
TEN-YEAR-OLD CHILDREN ARE MENTALLY SODOMIZED
"In a section of the manual titled Talking About Sexuality With Youngsters, teachers are encouraged to ask ten-year-old children: If you have never had sex with a person of the same sex, how do you know if you would prefer it? Homosexuals such as Oscar Wilde are promoted as heroes, and photos of transvestites are provided to children."
A BIPARTISAN RAPE OF THE INNOCENT
"The manual is part of USAIDs AIDSCAP program, implemented in over 30 developing countries by highly funded population control groups including Family Health International (FHI).
"FHI is one of USAIDs oldest and most highly funded population control NGOs. According to USAID, FHI improves reproductive health among people ten to 24 years old (HIV/AIDS Partnerships, USAID, Global Health Bureau). FHI also promotes programs designed to provide lubricants for men who have sex with other men (HIV/AIDS Interventions With Men Who Have Sex With Men, Family Health International, 2003)."
BUSH AND CONGRESS HAVE FUNDED FHI THEY CAN STOP IT
"Most people would agree that promoting homosexuality and distributing graphic sexual material to children as young as ten years old is wrong. Most taxpayers would be alarmed to know that U.S. funds are paying for these programs. But FHI has been aggressively promoting sexual material, including material on homosexuality, to children for years.
"In 2001, FHI received $85 million from USAID to promote sex education to children and teens (USAID Award to FHI Promotes Youth Reproductive Health, Family Health International, October 2, 2001). FHIs program, titled YouthNet, provides IUDs, contraceptive pills, and Depo-Provera to children as young as ten years old in developing nations. Post-abortion care (a euphemism for manual vacuum abortion) is also available to children."
NEW WORLD ORDER AGENDA IS DERIVED FROM KARL MARXS HATRED OF WESTERN CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION
"USAIDs YouthNet program is designed to destroy genuine faith-based abstinence initiatives, and integrate programs for teens and children into already-existing adult HIV/AIDS/Sexual and Reproductive Health programs throughout the world. Where genuine faith-based groups strive to promote abstinence to teens, FHI seeks to go beyond traditional childrens religious education to address sexual behaviors explicitly (Faith-Based Programs for Youth, Family Health International, 2003)."

"Republican National Committee Chair Marc Racicot spoke before more than 300 gay rights activists in Washington on March 7, marking the first time a sitting GOP chair has addressed a gay audience.
" It was an historic moment for the gay community and the Republican Party, said gay Republican activist Carl Schmid, who worked on President Bushs 2000 election campaign."

MSNBCs SAVAGE IS CRUDE, BLASPHEMOUS, AND ARROGANT
"Conservative" talk show host Michael "Savages San Francisco-based radio program is heard on more than 300 radio stations. The Boston Globe called him arguably the medias hottest commodity. His hour-long MSNBC Saturday afternoon show debuted to high ratings and mixed reviews two weeks ago.
"Savage is under fire not only from GLAAD but from the Human Rights Campaign and from womens rights organizations for what the groups allege are his anti-gay and anti-women comments. "
SAVAGE CLAIMS TO BE HOMOPHILIC
"Savage insists hes not anti-gay and that his show is gay-friendly. He notes that he was one of the few commentators after 9/11 who consistently and repeatedly echoed that the terrorists and the Taliban regime that harbored them were homophobic. Savage said one of his favorite radio show guests was author Camille Paglia, who Savage calls his favorite lesbian. "

"Arguably Savages most inflammatory statement on gays was that the gay and lesbian Mafia wants our children. Savage, a former teacher, said he has no objections to gay teachers.

DR. DOBSON WONDERS WHY GWB NAMES SAFE-SEXER TO HEAD CDC
Dr. James Dobson, President of Focus on the Family, released a press statement (7/2/02) responding to reports citing Dr. Julie Gerberding as the new head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in which he stated that "We are baffled as to why President Bush would appoint someone so out of step with his stated priorities. Dr. Gerberding has been in positions of leadership in the CDC for years, but there is nothing in the record to indicate her opposition to safe-sex ideology. She has no apparent concern about the ineffectiveness of condom usage, nor any stated disagreement with the positions of the homosexual activist movement, or with the provision of free needles to drug users. To the contrary, her writings clearly show that she believes the safe sex lie that has entrapped millions of our teenagers many of whom are now fighting incurable sexually-transmitted diseases."
CLINTONS VIEW OF SODOMY AND SAFE SEX PREVAILS UNDER BUSH JR.
"The president campaigned on a policy of morality and ethics in government, and yet he is now asking us to hope that Dr. Gerberdings policies will be consistent with those promises. We are reminded of the assurances given to conservatives that Justice David Souter would not lean radically to the left. But by the time the truth was disclosed, it was too late to oppose his confirmation for the Supreme Court. [NOTE: It was not too late. Your editor testified against Souters confirmation, documenting Souters anti-Christian "Legal Positivism" and his consistent pro-abortion activism.]
"This new appointment sends a disturbing message that the problems surrounding rampant sexual behavior can be solved with a false promise and a piece of latex. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is already the worlds largest promoter of homosexuality and safe-sex programs, and now the president has appointed someone whose positions indicate that the organization will continue dishing out more of the same."

" One of our nations greatest strengths is the rich diversity of its people. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans form an important part of this national tapestry and have contributed to every facet of our society. All too often, however, these citizens have been marginalized, discriminated against, and even attacked for who they are.
"The memo cited both the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 and Executive Order 13087, which prohibits sexual-orientation discrimination in the federal workplace.
" Preventing discrimination is not enough; diversity should also [be] celebrated. USDA is known as "The Peoples Department." The services we provide touch the lives of every American, and we are proud that our employee population is a microcosm of American society. Thus, it is only fitting that we recognize, respect, and welcome all of our employees and customers within the USDA family, without regard to sexual orientation.

RICK SANTORUM AND TOM DAVIS HOST HOMOS FOR GWB, CHENEY, AND GOP
"The nations largest gay Republican organization met in Washington last week at its annual convention, and took its place as, in the words of a senior Congressional Republican, a very important part of the Republican team, raising over $60,000 in LCR [Log Cabin Republicans] campaign contributions for GOP candidates to kick off its fall 2002 campaign effort, and launching a print ad campaign in the gay press in support of President Bushs leadership."
A WARM WELCOME INTO PRESIDENT BUSHS BIG TENT
"The national and local leadership of Log Cabin Republicans met at key locations around official Washington April 17-21 for its annual convention from the White House to House and Senate buildings to Cabinet offices and top Washington reception halls. In addition to plotting out top national priorities, LCR was hosted at Bush Administration and Congressional briefings on a range of topics, and joined in selecting new grass roots coordinating leaders and welcoming three new national Board members to the team."
SECRETARY ONEILL PROVIDES A PERSONAL BRIEFING
"On April 18, about fifty LCR national leaders, including LCR Board and Trustee members, attended high-level policy and political briefings on Capitol Hill and at the White House with senior GOP leaders. Treasury Secretary Paul ONeill hosted LCRs senior leadership at a briefing in the Treasury Department, reviewing U.S. economic policy and the continued progress of private sector benefits for domestic partners.
"At the White House briefing a first-ever such briefing in a GOP administration for a gay organization LCR leaders heard from Mary Matalin, assistant to the President and Counselor to the Vice President, who gave a political briefing. Lezlee Westine, assistant to the President and Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison, welcomed LCRs leadership to the White House, while former LCR Wisconsin president Scott Evertz, now director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, also welcomed old friends to the White House and discussed the Presidents accomplishments on AIDS policy over the past year."
JUDICIAL NOMINEES DISCUSSED
"White House Associate Counsel Brad Berenson reviewed judicial nominations, thanking LCR for its support on the Pickering nomination and urging continued partnership. James Wilkinson, deputy director of White House communications, discussed message development and his experiences running the war room communications center during the war in Afghanistan. Former Bush campaign political director Maria Cino discussed free trade and the impact on small businesses, such as those in the gay and lesbian community across the nation."
GOP CAMPAIGN CHIEF TOM DAVIS HAILS PERVERSE PACHYDERMS
"Congressman Tom Davis (R-VA), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee headlined a morning Congressional briefing on Capitol Hill, saying that LCR is a very important part of our team in the effort to retain and expand the Republican majority in the U.S. House. Joining Davis were freshmen Republican Representatives Bob Simmons (CT) and Mike Ferguson (NJ), both of whom thanked LCR for its strong support in the 2000 elections as the first gay organization to endorse them. Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ), a founding member of LCRs National Advisory Board, reviewed international HIV/AIDS policy as chairman of the Foreign Operations appropriations subcommittee. Rep. Clay Shaw (R-FL) thanked LCR for its critical financial and grass-roots support in the 2000 election which he called a near-death experience after winning by a few hundred votes."
FRIST, SANTORUM, AND OREGONS GORDON SMITH PROMOTE GROUP RIGHTS FOR SODOMITES
"Senator Gordon Smith (R-OR) hosted a meeting with senior LCR leaders to discuss a range of issues such as anti-discrimination legislation, hate crimes and gay marriage. LCRs leadership also met with Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, to discuss the deadlock over judicial nominations and upcoming votes on legislative issues."
BILL FRIST SAYS GOP NEEDS ANAL SEX PRACTITIONERS TO WIN
"Senator Bill Frist (R-TN), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, headlined an evening reception at the Capital Grille on Pennsylvania Avenue. Frist thanked the overflow crowd of LCR leaders and activists for their support of Republican Senatorial candidates, calling for continued partnership between the NRSC and LCR in the 2002 election campaign, adding that we cannot win without your help.

GOP HOUSE GIVES BUSH $200 MILLION ($980 MILLION TOTAL) MORE OF YOUR MONEY THAN HE ASKS FOR ASSISTANCE TO DISEASED SODOMITES AROUND THE WORLD
"Two decades into the global AIDS epidemic, an unlikely alliance of lawmakers is pressing President Bush to increase spending by hundreds of millions of dollars this year to help foreign nations grapple with the disease.
"The Bush administration has budgeted $780 million for the global AIDS fight this year. On Thursday, however, Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee voted to add $200 million in global AIDS money to an emergency measure for domestic security and military spending. The White House had not asked for the money.
"Next week, the Senate Appropriations Committee is to vote on its version of the emergency spending bill. [W]hen the House and Senate bills are reconciled, [it] would mean nearly $1.3 billion to fight the disease globally. The money is to be allocated by Sept. 30, with more likely next year. "
JESSE HELMS, BONO, AND KOFI ANNAN ARE THE PIED PIPERS
"Some lawmakers, notably [North Carolina Republican Sen. Jesse] Helms, have credited Bono, the Irish rock star who has become something of a cult figure in Washington with his pleas for more aid to fight global poverty and disease. Some credit Kofi Annan, the United Nations secretary general, who last year called for a new global fund to fight AIDS. The fund awarded its first grants last month.
"The White House says the United States is providing nearly half of all international financing to fight the epidemic. A spokesman, Scott McClellan, describes the United States as a world leader in the fight against global AIDS."
U.S. PRESSED TO COUGH UP $2.5 BILLION
"But advocates for people with AIDS say that in light of the staggering tally of H.I.V. infections and AIDS deaths, the administration and Congress are not doing nearly enough. They note that Secretary Annan has called for $10 billion in annual global AIDS spending and say the United States share should be one-quarter of that, or $2.5 billion, delivered immediately."

GWB OKS FAMILIES "IN VARIOUS FORMS"
"The Bush administration has joined European delegates to an upcoming U.N. summit on children in moving to recognize families in various forms, including unmarried cohabiting couples and homosexual partners."
U.S. ON THE WRONG SIDE OF SAME-SEX "MARRIAGES" DEBATE AT U.N.
"A coalition of Catholic and Muslim countries has formed to block the change to the traditional U.N. definition of the family married heterosexual parents and children at the General Assemblys Special Session on Children from May 8 to May 10.
"Customarily, U.N. members are obliged to conform their national laws to the bodys declarations, and critics have said that the European-backed changes would make such proposals as homosexual marriage and domestic-partner benefits an internationally recognized right."
IT MAY AFFECT POLICY THROUGHOUT U.S.
"A U.N. publication following up the 1994 U.N. population conference in Copenhagen indicated that many radical participants believed altering U.N. language in this way would grant international legitimacy to such arrangements.
" I dont know what the United States is doing, said Monsignor James Reinert, negotiator for the Vaticans delegation at the United Nations.
"The world communitys traditional definition of family has remained unchanged since the 1994 Copenhagen conference, Monsignor Reinert said, despite efforts of feminist and pro-homosexual forces to achieve a permissive definition to give global legitimacy to nonmarital lifestyles.
"Maria Sophia Aguirre, a population and development expert at Catholic University of America who follows U.N. programs and issues, disagreed.
"She said the United Nations compilation of Copenhagen papers, published in 1996 and titled Family Challenges for the Future, listed three groups of families: nuclear, extended and reorganized.
" "Nuclear" includes biological, social, one-parent, adoptive or in vitro families, she said.
"Extended" includes three-generation, kinship, tribal and polygamous. "Reorganized" includes remarried, community living, same-gender, terms that she said would collectively encompass cohabitation and homosexual couples." Source: George Archibald, The Washington Times, 4/22/02, pp. 1, 12
"ALL IN THE 'FAMILY'"
Delegates from Europe and Canada, with support from the United States, want to modify the United Nations long-standing definition of the family at the U.N. child summit in New York, scheduled to take place May 8 to 10. Informal negations on a final document for the summit resume today at the world body. Here is the present language, adopted in Copenhagen in 1994, with various proposed changes in bold:
"The family is the fundamental unit of society and holds the primary responsibility for the protection, upbringing and development of children. All institutions of society should respect childrens rights and well-being and render appropriate assistance to parents, families, legal guardians and other caregivers so that children can grow and develop in a safe and stable environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding."
|Proposal by the European Union and Switzerland|
|"The family, in its various forms, is the fundamental unit of society and [continuing with rest of Copenhagen language]." (Benin, Egypt, the Holy See, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Mali, the Rio Group of Latin American nations, and a group of Muslim nations object.)|
|Proposal by Canada and Switzerland|
|"The family, in its various forms, is the fundamental group of society and [continuing with rest of Copenhagen language]." (The same parties object.)|
|Proposal by Canada, European Union, New Zealand and Switzerland|
"The family, in its various forms, is the fundamental group of society and holds the primary responsibility for the protection, upbringing and development of children. In different cultural, political and social systems, various forms of the family exist and the rights, capabilities and responsibilities of family members must be respected. All institutions [continuing with rest of Copenhagen language]." (The same parties object.)
|Proposal by South Korea|
"The family is the fundamental group of society and holds the primary responsibility for the protection, upbringing and development of children. Bearing in mind different social and political systems, various forms of the family exist. All institutions [continuing with rest of Copenhagen language]."

GOPS TOM DAVIS URGES RECRUITMENT OF "ASPs"
"Virginia Congressman Tom Davis, wearing his hat as chair [sic] of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, called on members of the Log Cabin Republicans of the District of Columbia last week to help the party broaden its base of support in the 2002 elections."
REPUBLICAN HOMOS HONOR GOP CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN
"Davis spoke at the Log Cabin groups annual Lincoln Day Dinner, which was held Feb. 28 in a banquet hall at the Republican National Committee headquarters on Capitol Hill. The D.C. gay GOP group, which recently became the national gay Log Cabin organizations largest chapter, presented Davis with its 2002 Walt Whitman Award.
" As we go into the midterm election, we have an opportunity to expand our base, Davis told the gathering. You can help us expand that base. Youve been a very important part of our coalition. Youre growing here in DC. Youre growing in Northern Virginia. Believe me, that is recognized by people who are higher up in the party ranks.
" You are going to be a very important part of this party in the years to come, Davis said." WHITE HOUSE ALLIES CHIME IN
"Among those who joined Davis in speaking roles at the Log Cabin gathering were Scott Evertz, the gay director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy; gay D.C. Councilmember David Catania (R-At-Large); and gay author and former New Republic magazine editor Andrew Sullivan. Gay U.S. Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) and gay-friendly U.S. Rep. Connie Morella (R-Md.) attended the dinner, along with members of the D.C. Republican Party Committee." Source: Lou Chibbaro Jr., Washington Blade, 3/8/02, p. 5

HYDE, HATCH, AND FRIST LEAD GOP OUTREACH TO HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVISTS
Lou Chibbaro writes (Washington Blade, 5/11/01, p. 1) that "Three senior GOP leaders in Congress who have kept their distance on Gay issues in the past pledged during meetings last week with Log Cabin Republicans to work with the Gay community on domestic and international AIDS programs while taking a more cautious stand on Gay civil rights issues.
"Officials with Log Cabin, a national Gay group, said the decision by Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Ill.) to attend publicly announced meetings with about 50 members of the Log Cabin board and staff was yet another signal that prominent Republicans including President George W. Bush are breaking from their partys longstanding reluctance to become involved in Gay-related matters. The three lawmakers are considered to be among the most influential conservatives in Congress. ..."
HYDE PROMISES TO AUTHORIZE HIRING OF HOMOS
"Hyde, a leading figure in the nations anti-abortion movement, signed a statement in March pledging not to discriminate against members of his congressional staff on the basis of sexual orientation. For more than a decade, Hyde had declined to sign the statement, which is distributed to all members of Congress by the Human Rights Campaign, the nations largest Gay political group.
" This is a sign that the Congress, like the country as a whole, is becoming more understanding and more tolerant on our issues, said Winnie Stachelberg, HRCs political director.
"Hyde and Frist met May 3 with the Log Cabin officials during the groups seventh annual congressional briefing, which it holds each May during the week of the groups board of directors meeting. Hyde and Frist, along with six other GOP House members, met publicly with the Log Cabin officials in a room in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill. Hatch, who could not attend the public meeting due to a scheduling conflict, met privately in his Senate office with about two dozen Log Cabin board and staff members that same day, according [to] Log Cabin spokesperson Kevin Ivers.
"The other lawmakers attending the meeting at the Rayburn Building were openly Gay Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) and Reps. Connie Morella (R-Md.), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Mark Foley (R-Fla.), Kay Granger (R-Texas), John Shimkus (R-Ill.), and Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) [sic]."

BUSH HOMOSEXUALIZES HIS ADMINISTRATION
"Scott Evertz, President Bushs appointment to head the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, has voiced opposition to the conservative moral positions of President Bush and the Republican Party, including legislation prohibiting the recognition of same-sex marriage."
DUBYA PROFESSES OPPOSITION TO "SAME SEX MARRIAGE" BUT HIRES AN ADVOCATE
"Evertz, an open homosexual, is a founding member and president of the Wisconsin chapter of the homosexual advocacy organization Log Cabin Republicans. He has been associated with various other homosexual advocacy organizations as well, including the Log Cabin Society and Amnesty International Members for Lesbian and Gay Concerns.
"[W]hen Evertz was head of the Log Cabin Society, he opposed efforts by Wisconsin State Rep. Dean Kaufert to introduce a bill barring Wisconsin officials from recognizing counterfeit marriages that are legally recognized in other states. As reported in the Capital Times (Madison, Wis.), Evertz and other homosexual groups blast[ed] the proposal, calling it a waste of taxpayer time and money. Evertz lamented that [t]he last time I checked, gay men and lesbians couldnt even get married in this state. "
EVERTZ OPPOSES RIGHT OF CHRISTIANS TO DISASSOCIATE THEMSELVES FROM PERVERSION
"That same year, Evertz also led a session at the Amnesty International Regional Conference in Madison, in which he represented Amnesty International Members for Lesbian and Gay Concerns. According to the Capital Times, Evertz advised the audience to use Wisconsin as a model in promoting gay rights around the world. In 1982, Wisconsin became the first state to enact statewide homosexual rights legislation that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. "
SPECIAL STATUS FOR ANAL SEX PRACTITIONERS IN EXECUTIVE BRANCH
"The Log Cabin Republicans officially supports former President Clintons Executive Order 13087, which grants special status to government employees on the basis of their sexual orientation. This places sexual behavior on a par with immutable characteristics such as race and national origin, as well as constitutionally protected freedoms such as religious belief. "
USE OF FEDERAL EDUCATION DOLLARS FOR SAFE SODOMY SEX ED IS NOW BUSH AGENDA
"Evertz also opposes abstinence-only sex education to curb the spread of AIDS among teens. Evertz supports safe sex instruction in public schools, which includes counseling teens to use condoms if they choose to reject their parents [sic] advice. Public school safe sex instruction has been criticized for exposing children to explicit and graphic discussion about sexuality issues such as homosexuality, which are often presented outside of a framework of moral and religious values."
CHRISTIAN LEADERS PROTEST IN VAIN TO THEIR MAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE
"Dr. James Dobson, President of Focus on the Family, criticized the appointment of an open homosexual to the White House AIDS office: For the administration to appoint Mr. Evertz to this position is to advance a fundamental misunderstanding of what causes AIDS in this country. AIDS is primarily spread by promiscuous sexual behavior, and such behavior is rampant among male homosexuals. This appointment sends a disturbing message that the problem of AIDS can be resolved without dealing with the promiscuity of many in the homosexual life. " (Source: Family Research Councils Culturefacts, 4/13/01)
BUSH WANTS SODOMITES IN HIS COALITION
Jill Lawrence writes (USA Today, 4/17/01, p. 8A) that "President Bushs choice of a gay man to head the White House AIDS office is the latest sign of a warming trend between gays and the GOP."
CLINTONS PRO-HOMO EXECUTIVE ORDER KEPT
"Bush named four openly gay people to help with his transition, and aides are interviewing more than a dozen for key jobs. Bush has moved to reverse some of former president Bill Clintons policies on abortion, labor and the environment, but he has left in place a 1998 order banning discrimination against gays in 1.7 million federal civil service jobs. ..."
"GAY" ACTIVISTS COMFORTABLE WITH BUSH CABINET
"The AIDS office amounts to an advocacy post, and even Bill Clinton did not name a prominent gay activist to head it, says Richard Lessner of American Renewal, a lobbying group. Increasingly, were seeing gestures from the president that are strikingly inconsistent with his repeated assertions that he stands for marriage and the family. ...
"[G]ay people ... are encouraged by other appointments, including Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, Labor Secretary Elaine Chao and Education Secretary Rod Paige. All have worked with gay activists. ...
"Bush directed Thompson, his platform chairman, to eliminate planks opposing gay marriage, gays in the military and civil rights protections for gays and lesbians. When the platform committee outvoted Thompson, he protested on TV. ...
"Mary Cheney, a lesbian, was her fathers chief campaign travel aide. She and her partner, Heather Poe, sat with other relatives on the VIP stand at the Inauguration."

41 PRO-HOMO GOP HOUSE MEMBERS BACK "HATE CRIMES" LAW
Juliet Eilperin reports (Washington Post, 9/14/00, p. A2) that "The House voted by a surprisingly wide margin yesterday to signal its support of hate-crime legislation that would protect gays as well as other targeted groups.
"The vote means that solid majorities in both chambers have advocated expanding federal jurisdiction to include violent crimes committed on the basis of race, religion, color, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity or disability. Forty-one Republicans joined 190 Democrats and an independent in supporting the motion, which instructed House negotiators to accept language attached to the annual Defense Department authorization bill."
The forty-one Republicans who voted "aye" (House Roll Call No. 471, 232-192, 9/13/00) were:
Bass (N.H.), Biggert (Ill.), Bilbray (Calif.), Boehlert (N.Y.), Bono (Calif.), Castle (Del.), Diaz-Balart (Fla.), English (Pa.), Foley (Fla.), Frelinghuysen (N.J.), Gallegly (Calif.), Gibbons (Nev.), Gillmor (Ohio), Gilman (N.Y.), Greenwood (Pa.), Horn (Calif.), Houghton (N.Y.), Johnson (Conn.), Kelly (N.Y.), Kolbe (Ariz.), Kuykendall (Calif.), LaHood (Ill.), LaTourette (Ohio), Leach (Iowa), LoBiondo (N.J.), McCollum (Fla.), McCrery (La.), Morella (Md.), Porter (Ill.), Quinn (N.Y.), Regula (Ohio), Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.), Roukema (N.J.), Saxton (N.J.), Shaw (Fla.), Shays (Conn.), Shimkus (Ill.), Smith (N.J.), Upton (Mich.), Walsh (N.Y.), and Weller (Ill.).

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST BOY SCOUTS BY POLITICIANS AND BUSINESS EXECUTIVES (HOMOFEARIES) INTIMIDATED BY HOMOSEXUAL PRESSURE
Kate Zernike reports (New York Times, 8/29/00, p. 1) that "Chicago, San Francisco and San Jose, Calif., have told local Scout troops that they can no longer use parks, schools and other municipal sites. Companies like Chase Manhattan Bank and Textron Inc., have withdrawn hundreds of thousands of dollars in support to local and national scouting groups nationwide. Dozens of United Ways from Massachusetts to San Francisco have cut off money amounting to millions of dollars each year.
"And Connecticut, in what may become a test case, has banned contributions to the Scouts by state employee through a state-run charity. The state is also considering whether to block the Scouts from using public campgrounds or buildings. ..."
CONNECTICUT BANS CONTRIBUTIONS BY STATE EMPLOYEES
"Gregg Shields, a national spokesman for the Scouts, said the organization respected the right of private companies to donate only to groups of their choice. But the organization is suing the State of Connecticut to restore state employees' ability to donate to the Scouts, and Mr. Shields said his group would fight to maintain access to public schools and public places in other states as well.
"'The Boy Scouts of America since 1910 have taught traditional family values,' Mr. Shields said. 'We feel that an avowed homosexual isn't a role model for those values.' ..."
IS IT "UNAMERICAN" TO OBEY GOD?
"The trim uniform of the Boy Scouts has become almost a cherished national symbol. But at a time when same-sex benefits, diversity training and nondiscrimination policies have become routine, some companies and organizations say the Scouts' refusal to admit gays has come to seem almost un-American.
"'Their position is, on the face of it, in conflict with our commitment and our values on diversity,' said Jim Finn, a spokesman for Chase, which had contributed about $200,000 annually to the Boy Scouts until stopping it last month.
"The Supreme Court ruled in June by a 5-to-4 vote that the organization had a constitutional right to exclude gays because opposition to homosexuality is part of the organization's 'expressive message.' ...
"The Scouts, whose membership has grown to 6.2 million, said that the group's charter since 1910 had promoted 'family values,' and that its oath pledged a 'morally straight' life. A homosexual, the organization said, is not the proper role model for those values. ..."
ACLU CHALLENGES SCOUT USE OF PUBLIC PARK
"The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the city of San Diego on Monday asking a federal court to revoke a 50-year-old agreement that lets the Scouts lease 18 acres of parkland for $1 a year. The lease is set to expire in 2007."
FLORIDA GOP CONGRESSMAN BILL McCOLLUM, SAVIOR OF THE LSC, PUSHES PRO-HOMO AGENDA FOR CONSERVATIVE FLORIDIANS
Lou Chibbaro Jr. reports (Washington Blade, 9/1/00, p. 1) that "U.S. Rep. Bill McCollum (R-Fla.), an influential House conservative with a history of voting for anti-Gay amendments, announced this week that he will seek to persuade House Republican leaders to end their opposition to a hate crimes bill that the Senate passed earlier this year."
McCOLLUM HELPS BARNEY FRANK ON "HATE CRIMES"
"Democratic Party supporters of the hate crimes measure, including openly Gay Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), said they welcome McCollum's effort, saying that, until now, House GOP leaders have been the main obstacle to final approval of the hate crimes legislation. President Clinton has expressed strong support for the measure and has promised to sign the legislation as soon as Congress passes it. ..."
"ASP"s (ANAL SEX PRACTITIONERS) NEED REPUBLICAN HELP TO WIN
"Prior to his press conference, McCollum met with Rich Tafel, executive director of Log Cabin Republicans, a national Gay GOP group; members of Log Cabin chapters in Florida; and Jorge Mursuli, chairperson of SAVE Dade, a non-partisan Gay advocacy group in South Florida.
"Tafel and Mursuli said McCollum told them he hopes to obtain support for the hate crimes measure from Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.).
"John Feehery, Hastert's press secretary, said Wednesday that Hastert had yet to hear from McCollum on the matter but that Hastert will be happy to consider McCollum's position on the hate crimes legislation. ..."
McCOLLUM WAS ALSO THE LEFT'S "TROJAN HORSE" IN RESCUING LEGAL SERVICES CORPORATION
"McCollum's announcement this week that he will become an advocate for the hate crimes legislation comes at a time when he is trailing in public opinion polls in his heated race for a seat in the U.S. Senate against Democrat Bill Nelson, Florida's state insurance commissioner. McCollum and Nelson are competing for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Connie Mack (R-Fla.), who is retiring. ...
"[O]fficials with the Human Rights Campaign, a national Gay political group, and SAVE Dade joined Log Cabin Republicans this week in praising McCollum for what they called a last ditch effort to save the hate crimes bill from the clutches of defeat."
Editor's Note: In the U.S. Senate, left-wing GOP New Hampshire Senator Warren Rudman did more than any other to preserve and strengthen the radical left-wing Legal Services Corporation. His counterpart in the House of Representatives was GOP Congressman Bill McCollum. Through his key position on the Judiciary Committee, McCollum was more influential than any Democrat in sending, during the course of his House tenure, billions of dollars to advance the pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, pro-welfare rights agenda of left-wing Legal Services activists. Now "Benedict Arnold" McCollum is trying to persuade conservative Floridians to elect him to the U.S. Senate.
