Martinsburg, WV – Here’s a little quiz for you. Question one, should the government be funding controversial (even dangerous) groups that promote anti-family values in public schools? Questions two, what is one of the most dangerous organizations that the government could fund (with your tax dollars) that will seek to strip traditional gender lines and destroy traditional marriage?

Do you know the answers? Answer number one is no! The government should not fund any private organization. If it does it creates a hypocritical double standard when it decides not to fund other groups; or all groups. Answer number two is GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network).

It seems, according to a recent report, that GLSEN has been awarded a government grant that will last the next five years. So, to be clear, your tax money will now be funding one of the most liberal homosexual activist groups in the nation.

But this is not just an activist group. This group seeks to push, normalize, and indoctrinate school children of all ages in the ways and lifestyle of homosexuality. They seek especially; it would seem, to get into elementary and primary schools. There is no doubt that one of their goals is to “train” children in the “joys” of the homosexual lifestyle from a very young age. Here are some of the things that GLSEN’s “Internal Implementation Team” will include in their program for students:

Same Sex Marriage Advocates Don’t Want You to Know This

by Nathan A. Cherry, 03/30/2011

Martinsburg, WV – I can think of many reasons to oppose same-sex “marriage”. They range from my religious beliefs that God designed marriage to be between one man and one

Shows like "Sister Wives" are helping undermine marriage.

 woman, to simple moral reasons, to what I consider common sense in the fact that the “plumbing doesn’t fit” between people of the same sex is an obvious boundary against same-sex relationships.

Another reason that is not being talked about much in the media is the link between the legalization of same-sex “marriage” and polygamy. But make no mistake about it, polygamy advocates are waiting with bated breath to see what happens in the ssm debate. They have every intention of fighting for the legalization of polygamy should ssm be legalized throughout the United States.

I have previously written about the danger to redefining marriage for reasons like the open door it will present to polygamy and other “forms” of marriage (read polyamory). In past articles I have stated that redefining marriage for homosexuals leaves our society no choice but to redefine it for polygamists, polyamorists, and any other group that wants to marry. (Click here for an excellent article featuring Town Hall writer Allen Hunt)

A recent blog post from Citizenlink.com writes about an article in The Washington Times that shows the link between legalizing same-sex “marriage” and polygamy.

But listen; let’s forget about the legal angle, the religious angle, and all those other things. Let’s just talk for a minute about the sheer common sense of it all. Sure, homosexuals don’t want to talk about the link, and they will deflect attention from polygamists and try to create as much space between them as they can. This is, in reality, very hypocritical of them.

For all the screaming homosexuals do about marriage “rights” and the fact that the government or society should not be telling people who they can and cannot marry homosexuals should be the biggest backer of polygamists. After all, isn’t our government and society the ones telling polygamists they cannot marry more than one person? Where’s Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the others screaming for “equality” and “civil rights?”

There are several options for getting the elections results tonight.  Perhaps you’re having a “watch party,” tuning in to your choice in news providers with a group of friends to see what happens.  Or, maybe you’ll just be sitting at home flipping between whatever is on TV and election results.

But, if you don’t watch TV, or if you want to watch your favorite show AND get election results, consider multi-tasking with the following online resources:

  • www.WVMetroNews.com/Election – MetroNews is the most comprehensive, far-reaching source for news in the State of West Virginia.  We have sponsored their online election results that they will update live.  (Be sure to click on our web ad too.)
  • CitizenLink.com – Formerly Focus on the Family Action, Citizenlink will begin a 3-hour webcast at 9:00 p.m. EST.  During the webcast, CitizenLink staff and election analysts will report on a variety of races and provide commentary on issues affecting your family.
  • FRC Action – One of the more interesting webcasts is that from the Family Research Council.  It features FRC president Tony Perkins interviewing many lawmakers – including some who may be elected/defeated tonight – as the results come in.
