Obama White House criticizes Minnesota traditional marriage amendment

(LifeSiteNews)  The Obama administration has condemned a traditional marriage amendment proposal in Minnesota in a statement issued Tuesday.

The amendment, passed by the state legislature on Saturday in a 70-62 vote, would allow Minnesotans the opportunity to vote during the 2012 election to enshrine traditional marriage in the state constitution.

When the gay news source Washington Blade asked for comment on the amendment, White House spokesman Shin Inouye issued a statement. It read:

“The President has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same sex couples or to take such rights away. While he believes this is an issue best addressed by the states, he also believes that committed gay couples should have the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple in this country.”

Pro-Life Groups: Boycott Pepsi for Using Aborted Fetal Cell Lines

(LifeNews)  Dozens of pro-life groups are calling on pro-life Americans to boycott PepsiCo because it has contracted with a company that uses fetal cells from babies victimized by abortions to test and produce artificial flavor enhancers.

LifeNews.com reported on the controversy in March when information came to light showing biotech company Senomyx was found to be testing their food additives using fetal cells from abortions. Senomyx ignored a letter from the pro-life group Children of God for Life, which complained about its practices.

The "Welcoming Schools" program from the Human Rights Campaign and the "safe schools" initiatives of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) are two examples.

Parents of genderless baby criticised for parenting methods

(LifeSiteNews)  Parents of 4 month-old Storm decided before the baby was born to keep their child’s gender a secret as a “tribute to freedom and choice in place of limitation”.

“If you really want to get to know someone, you don’t ask what’s between their legs,” Storm’s father, David Stocker told the Toronto Star .

Stoker is a teacher at City View Alternative, a tiny school that bases teaching on social-justice issues like class, race and gender, while Witterick is a stay-at-home mom who “unschools”, an educational idea based on the idea that a child chooses whatever type of schooling they desire.  Their older sons, Jazz, 5, and Kio, 2, choose what clothes, hairstyles, and activities they want and are encouraged to explore and challenge “gender identity” or how they are expected to look and act as boys.

Recruiting Children? You Bet We Are

(Family Research Council) For years, groups like FRC have been making compelling arguments against same-sex "marriage." And this week, a homosexual activist may have made the best one of all. "Recruiting children?" writes Daniel Villarreal. "You bet we are." After accusing voters of overreacting to the dangers of same-sex "marriage," one homosexual confessed that parents are right to be worried. "Can we please just start admitting that we do actually want to indoctrinate kids?" he says on Queerty.

"[Conservatives] accuse us of exploiting children and in response we say, `NOOO! We`re not gonna make kids learn about homosexuality, we swear! It`s not like we`re trying to recruit your children or anything.` But let`s face it--that`s a lie. We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it... Why would we put anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?"

If Americans don`t want to take our word on the real gay agenda, they can take Villarreal`s. Of course, most readers didn`t appreciate being "outed" on their real education strategy. By late yesterday, the article was flooded with angry comments from activists who wanted to keep the goal of perverting children under wraps. Fortunately for parents, that mission took a big step backwards yesterday with the departure of Safe Schools "czar" Kevin Jennings. After two scandal-plagued years, one of the President`s fiercest gay allies has finally resigned from his post to take a job with "Be the Change."

Unfortunately for families, Jennings has already been the change that most parents feared. In his time with the Department of Education, the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) was an outspoken proponent for celebrating homosexuality in the classroom. With his history of drug abuse and religious bigotry, conservatives--including the 53 congressmen who fought to unseat him--won`t shed any tears at his goodbye party. Without Jennings, the homosexual community will lose its grip on a key foothold in the Obama administration. While FRC is relieved to see him go, the push to indoctrinate kids won`t go away when Kevin Jennings does. Make sure you`re prepared to spot the propaganda in your kids` classrooms.

All students deserve to be protected from bullying

(ADF) The Alliance Defense Fund has submitted a model anti-bullying policy to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights for recommendation to school boards and other governing bodies. Unlike other policies, the policy drafted by ADF attorneys would protect all students from bullying rather than only a select few and would be implemented by school boards rather than the federal government.

“All students deserve to be protected from bullying, not just certain ones favored by certain political activist groups,” said ADF Legal Counsel Dale Schowengerdt.  “The constitutionally sound policy we are recommending protects all students, is designed for local school boards where it can be effective instead of involving the federal government, and guards student rights protected by the First Amendment.”

Oakland Elementary School Teaches Pupils That There Are More Than Two Genders

The two days calendared for this are entitled “Gender Spectrum Diversity Training.” In documents released by the school, students will be taught that “gender is not inherently nor solely connected to one’s physical anatomy.” Further, gender is a “complex interrelationship between [physical traits] and one’s internal sense of self as male, female, both or neither as well as one’s outward presentations and behaviors related to that perception.” Another document from the school advises parents: “When you discuss gender with your child, you may hear them [sic] exploring where they [sic] fit on the gender spectrum and why.”

(LifeNews) Trevin Wax, an editor at LifeWay Christian resources and a blogger at Kingdom People, is out with an article that is making the rounds in pro-life circles explaining five reasons why he believes the pro-life movement is winning on the issue of abortion.

Wax says the pro-life movement is moving in the right direction on public opinion, he sees the mainstream media as moving away slightly from the pro-abortion mantra, and he points out the next generation or two of Americans are taking strongly pro-life positions and, like Justin Bieber, going as far as saying they are pro-life in public and not worrying about any backlash.

Two Suits Take ObamaCare to the Cleaners

(Family Research Council)  It looks like the die has been cast in the next phase of the ObamaCare suits. This morning, three judges from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals (all appointed by Democratic Presidents) heard oral arguments in two challenges to the national health care law. The first at bat, Liberty University, used their 40 minutes to challenge ObamaCare`s individual mandate, which requires Americans to buy health insurance whether they want it or not. Liberty was followed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, led by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli--who argued against the mandate on the grounds that it threatens state rights. Regardless of how either suit turns out, the parties both view this as a stepping stone in their march to the U.S. Supreme Court. In the meantime, FRC, whose argument for "severability" was heavily relied upon in a lower court victory, is working on another brief--this time, for the multi-state challenge to ObamaCare that was filed by Florida and will be heard by the 11th Circuit Court later this spring.

"The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" now goes to the Democratic-led Senate, where it is not expected to pass; in addition, the White House this week threatened to veto it if it made it that far.
