Matt Barber urges wedding vendors et al. not to quit in face of persecution
“For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him.”
– Philippians 1:29
Defense of God’s design for natural marriage – along with the God-given, constitutional freedom of conscience to decline participation in and, thereby, endorsement of, its unnatural and sin-based counterfeit, so-called “gay marriage” – is now among America’s premier civil-rights struggles. I know from whence I speak, as 10 years ago I was fired from a major fortune 100 company for writing, on my own time and on my home computer, an op-ed acknowledging the requisite binary male-female nature of authentic marriage and human sexuality.

Despite a threatening letter from the ACLU and a recent special meeting hosted by Equality Virginia, the School Board of Gloucester County voted 6 to 1 to keep girls bathrooms for girls and boys bathrooms for boys. Students suffering from gender identity issues will be provided a gender neutral bathroom.
The parking lot for the School Board meeting gave the appearance that a championship game of a sports event was underway. Cars were parked everywhere and people walked briskly from all directions towards the building.
As soon as I entered the auditorium door I could feel the “heat” from the multitude of folks who had shown up for the vote on this hot topic. Immediately, I shed my coat and continued down the aisle by-passing the line of people signing up to speak.
Refuting sexual promiscuity: incest, pedophilia, bestiality, homosexuality, pornography, adultery, and fornication.
Sex has become one of the biggest driving forces in today’s society. In January 2006, Save America Ministries released, “Sexual Seduction of the Union: A Sexual Portrait of American Life,” a study on sexual beliefs and activities in
Furthermore, “52% of American women have sex before 18, but 75% have sex before marriage… 2/3 of teens are sexually active by the end of high school, despite 89% having attended sex education classes... 60-70% of “Christian” men admit seeking out pornography…” The list goes on, and it only gets worse. We live in a society that has turned its back on God and sought sex in place of Him, mistaking sex, lust, and infatuation for love.
PFOX Billboard Makes the News
Identical twins have the same genes or DNA. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions. If homosexuality is caused by genetics or prenatal conditions and one twin is gay, the co-twin should also be gay … because identical twins are always genetically identical, homosexuality cannot be genetically dictated. No-one is born gay.
PFOX’s new billboard in Richmond, VA strives to spread this message as they seek to debunk some of the misconceptions about homosexuality.
Do any of us really need one more lie from the “LGBT” lobby? But that’s what the parents and families of Minnesota got in a recent vote about whether boys can join girls’ sports teams, use their restrooms and spend the night in their hotel rooms.
Never mind the underlying reality that boys are not girls, ever. The truth about the policy just passed in Minnesota is that it is not binding. No school in Minnesota needs to go along with the new guideline (that’s all it is) from the Minnesota State High School League, a board that oversees high school sports.
While the proposal passed 18-1 with one abstention, it was a last-minute version, the ninth draft, pulled out and voted on at the December 4 meeting. All the measure does is provide a set of verifications for boys who are confused about gender to make appeals if denied the option to join a girls’ team.
Letter to the Editoar:The TIMES-DISPATCH INSIGHT
“Transgender service members ‘at great risk’” noted that the military requires the immediate dismissal of any service member found to be transgender. However the article says that about 15,500 transgender people are serving in the military. They are apparently continuing to hide in the closet!
Why doesn’t the military want them serving? The reason is that this condition constitutes a mental disorder- it does not correspond with physical reality and it can lead to devastating psychological outcomes to the person involved. This is a condition that requires understanding and treatment.
There is a current and pressing issue that has been brought to our attention that we need your help with.
Governor McAuliffe has appointed a transgender male-to-female as the Commissioner of Public Health. Dr. Mark or "Marissa" Levine is the highest ranking person in our Commonwealth's health system.
Dr. Levine will be holding a public hearing on December 4, 2014 in an attempt to roll back Virginia's abortion clinic regulations. You can be sure Attorney General Mark Herring and Governor Terry McAuliffe will have their "legal" opinions to back up what Dr. Levine does. Dr. Levine has already issued waivers to clinics and apparently will not be enforcing the law about underage abortion as it had been enforced in the McDonnell/Cuccinelli era.
Girl Changes to Boy-Man Changes to Woman
As a kid I was always excited when the first posters were nailed to the telephone poles announcing the soon coming Carnival. Great expectations would rise up inside of me followed by great hope that money would be there in the family budget to attend.
There was always one section of the Carnival though that was off limits: the Side Shows. Even though my parents would keep me at a distance I was always able to read the signs on the tents: “Featuring Inside - Snake Lady and Alligator Boy”.
Today, there’s a new Side Show in town with leftist liberal groups taking advantage of gender confused individuals pushing sex changes, cross dressing and drugs to block natural hormone development.
Washington, D.C. – Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has been one of the most outspoken proponents in the effort to ban Sexual Orientation Change Effort (SOCE) therapy for minors. They have aided gay activist organizations in California and New Jersey who successfully passed laws to ban SOCE therapy in 2012-2013, and have undoubtedly played a role in the sixteen bills that were introduced in state legislatures across the United States in 2014, fourteen of which already failed this year thanks in part to the #TherapyEquality campaign of Voice of the Voiceless (VoV).
The Richmond TIMES-DISPATCH is so committed to promoting the homosexual agenda they will not publish opposing Letters to the Editor. Virginia Christian Alliance director Greene Hollowell submitted the following letter- not published! You would think the TIMES-DISPATCH was a subsidiary of the WASHINGTON BLADE, here is my letter.
Letter to the Editor:
With our President Obama, VP Biden and our Virginia Governor and Attorney General and the Democrats in the General Assembly all promoting the homosexual agenda it follows that a majority of the Virginia citizens are in solid agreement that the practice of oral sex be accepted as normal and legal. Some might have second thoughts about anal sex, sex with minors, bestiality and same-sex marriage but they will let the Supreme Court make those decisions.
Recently several states have adopted what is euphemistically called “The Bathroom Bill.” The bill was first adopted in California and mandates schools to allow boys and girls to use each other’s restrooms if they identify with the opposite gender. In other words, children can use which bathroom is consistent with which gender they feel they are at any given time! Apparently, the rule does not require permanent identification as male or female, but permits the individual to change his/her mind at whim. Nor is this new law limited to bathroom choice. In California the law specifically states, “A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs, activities, and facilities, including athletic teams and competitions, consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”
Major LGBT group "Human Rights Campaign" targeting pro-family leaders with vicious attacks. Reaction to pro-family successes stopping ‘gay marriage’ and LGBT agenda overseas.

POSTED: September 26, 2014
The so-called “Human Rights Campaign” (HRC), the wealthiest and most powerful homosexual and transgender activist organization in the US, has begun a major effort to demonize and personally attack the pro-family leaders whom they see as the major American impediments to the homosexual-transgender agenda in foreign countries.
Robert Reilly notes that a society can withstand any number of persons who try to advance their own moral disorders as public policy. But society cannot survive once it adopts the justifications for whose moral disorders as its own. This is what is at stake in the culture war.
In The Ethics Aristotle wrote, "men start revolutionary changes for reasons connected with their private lives." This is also true when revolutionary changes are cultural. What might these "private" reasons be, and why do they become public in the form of revolutionary changes? The answer to these questions lies in the intimate psychology of moral failure.
