From American Thinker:

The Washington Timesreported  on Sunday that two new studies indicate that children raised by gay parents  might not benefit from the experience like kids raised by married mother-father  parents.

“The empirical claim that no  notable differences exist must go,” University  of Texas sociology professor Mark  Regnerus said in his study in Social  Science Research.

Regnerus’s study involved 3,000  randomly selected young adults in the U.S.  These young adults’ lives were  measured for “social, emotional, and relationship  outcomes.”

The other new study challenges the  widely accepted contention by the American  Psychological Association that “[n]ot a single study has found children  of lesbian or gay parents to be disadvantaged in any significant respect  relative to children of heterosexual parents.”

Yet it’s often the same gay  advocates who argue that marriage and family are pliable who are as likely to  advance the case that homosexuality is inborn or  genetic,  without any scientific confirmation (or, perhaps, without any good science  confirming).

If homosexuality is ever  proven to be inborn (perhaps new science will prove something someday), it still  stands as a deviancy (the word isn’t being used pejoratively, but  descriptively).  Again, contrary to popular thinking, gays constitute about  3%  of the U.S. population, making gays a significant “deviation from the  norm.”  That 3% figure is likely true across the  planet.

Did the teacher overreact?

FORT WORTH, Texas – A Fort Worth high school student was sent to the principal’s office earlier this week for telling another classmate he believes homosexuality is wrong.

Fourteen-year-old Dakota Ary spent most of the day Tuesday serving an in-school suspension. It was punishment for discussion in his German class at Fort Worth’s Western Hills High School.

“We were talking about religions in Germany. I said, ‘I’m a Christian. I think being a homosexual is wrong,’” he said. “It wasn’t directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me. I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.”

An assistant principal called Ary’s mother at work to let her know he was in trouble.

“At first I was in disbelief. My son is on the honor roll with great grades. I don’t have any problems out of him,” Holly Pope said.

After hearing Ary’s explanation of what happened, the assistant principal reduced the original suspension from two days to one. But Pope was not satisfied with that.

“He was stating an opinion. He has a right to do that. They punished him for it,” she said.

      Let’s be extremely clear here…. this is not about homosexuality. It is about what is deemed appropriate materials for school age children. Kevin Jennings should NOT be in a position of influence with regard to our children and their education:

Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of an organization called the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN started essentially as Jennings’ personal project and grew to become the culmination of his life’s work. And he was chosen by President Obama to be the nation’s Safe Schools Czar primarily because he had founded and led GLSEN (scroll for bio).

GLSEN’s stated mission is to empower gay youth in the schools and to stop harassment by other students. It encourages the formation of Gay Student Alliances and condemns the use of hateful words. GLSEN also strives to influence the educational curriculum to include materials which the group believes will increase tolerance of gay students and decrease bullying. To that end, GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books that it claims “furthers our mission to ensure safe schools for all students.” In other words, these are the books that GLSEN’s directors think all kids should be reading: gay kids should read them to raise their self-esteem, and straight kids should read them in order to become more aware and tolerant and stop bullying gay kids. Through GLSEN’s online ordering system, called “GLSEN BookLink,” featured prominently on their Web site, teachers can buy the books to use as required classroom assignments, or students can buy them to read on their own.

According to GLSEN’s own press releases from the period during which its recommended reading list was developed, the organization’s three areas of focus were creating “educational resources, public policy agenda, [and] student organizing programs”; in other words, the reading list (chief among its “educational resources”) was of prime importance in GLSEN’s efforts to influence the American educational system.

The list is divided into three main categories: books recommended for grades K-6; books recommended for grades 7-12; and books for teachers. (The books on the list span all genres: fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, even poetry.)

Out of curiosity to see exactly what kind of books Kevin Jennings and his organization think American students should be reading in school, our team chose a handful at random from the over 100 titles on GLSEN’s grades 7-12 list, and began reading through.

What we discovered shocked us. We were flabbergasted. Rendered speechless.

“A longtime Washington, D.C., liberal Internet activist has founded a Web site that he says will collect accounts of homosexuals in the Catholic priesthood–accounts he will use to “encourage” them to change their views on homosexual marriage and other issues.”

 “Outing” the priests–publicly revealing their homosexuality–is “not off the table,” Phil Attey, founder of the Web site ChurchOuting.com, told CNSNews.com. The site will also collect information on straight priests who have broken their vow of celibacy, using the information to “encourage” those priests to go against their Church’s teachings on homosexuality as well.

“This is a campaign to collect information about closeted gay Catholic priests, as well as heterosexual Catholic priests who secretly engage in romantic or sexual affairs, yet are unwilling to speak out against the church leadership’s anti-gay political campaigns,” the Web site says.”

     President Barack Obama has appointed Kevin Jennings to be the “Safe-School” czar. As a prt of the goals of Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, one would assume that he has a complete section of staff dedictaed to the development and implementation of porgrams that would keep our children safe at school. Consider the rash of guns confiscated at schools in Miami Dade county, as well as the recent stabbing at one of their schools, the white high school student attacked by a group of black students on a bus (and it is not deemed a hate crime), and the number of recent revelations of female teachers having sex with their male students.

      But, alas, Obama feels that Duncan’s staff cannot do enough, so he appointed a “Safe School” czar, who, like most of the other special advisors, is not subject to the Senate’s confirmation process.

    If the safe School czar was subject to the confirmation process, one would hope that the Senators would be outraged at the behavior of Kevin Jennings as a teacher.  Jennings has a pro-gay agenda, and believes in promoting homosexuality acceptance in the schools. What hasn’t seen as much press is a violation of the law in his promotion of that agenda. A male teen student confided in Jennings that he was involved with an “older man” in a homosexual relationship, which at the least amounted to statutory rape. By law, Jennings was required to report this to the authorities, yet he chose not to do so.

From the Washington Times:

According to Mr. Jennings’ own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the “older man” in a “bus station bathroom” and was taken to the older man’s home that night. When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape “unethical.” Mr. Jennings’ defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was aware the student had sex with the older man.

However, the new audiotape contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure “to use a condom” when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings’ own description in his 1994 book, “One Teacher in 10.” In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student’s concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old “left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated.”

     Is this appointment another example of how the vetting process in the Obama administration is incompetent, at the least, or completely arrogant to the role these appointments are playing in the establishment of policy in today’s society?  If Mr. Jennings could not comply with the laws in place to protect our youth from sexual predators, even encouraging an illegal and immoral relationship, how then can we PAY him and fund a staff for him to advise the President on programs to make our schools a safer place.

    Ok, don’t start with the line that “Obama is a Christian”!! Yes, I get it. Yes, he says that he was converted by his spiritual mentor the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. These are Obama’s words… just words…. and we know what value (or lack thereof) there is in his Just Words.

    So, our good neighbors to the North see his recent actions a sign of not just his ineptness for his new job, but that he lacks theollogical conviction. The example is that he has agreed to allow the United States to sign onto the United Nations Decrinalization of Homosexuality agreement.

     Canada Free Press writes:

The President has announced to the Congress his intentions to sign the UN declaration that calls for the decriminalization of homosexuality. The declaration that George W. Bush shunned has now been OK’d by all 27 member nations of the European Union.

Ignoring the moral sensibilities of over half of the American public Barack Obama has proven that the hallmarks of his presidency will be to further amorality, prurient interests and the gay agenda regardless of America’s Christian heritage or the basic sentiments of the population. He has hit the ground running on pro-abortion and gay agenda causes that are causing disgust all the way from little independent fundamental churches to the Vatican.

The Bible does hold that homosexuality is a crime against nature but Barack Obama has assured the doubtful that they needn’t take the Apostle Paul’s warning in the first chapter of the book of Romans too seriously because it is after all “obscure” according to Obama in the Christian Post Mar 04, 2008.

Nature doesn’t have any courts so for the moment the gays are on relatively safe ground but according to scripture natures God does have a final session coming up.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that the Presidents ineptness at politics is second only to his weakness in theological treatise. Putting the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ over against or above the warnings against homosexuality made by Paul shows that Obama thinks the scripture is only inspired in spots and he sees himself as perfectly qualified to spot the spots!
