Liberty Counsel: Anti-Christian bigotry is on the rise!

      Pro-homosexual vandals recently attacked an Illinois 
      Christian academy at which the pro-family group Americans 
      for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) was preparing to 
      hold a banquet to honor an evangelical Christian leader. 

      The pro-homosexual movement is not only getting more 
      aggressive in their physical actions, but also in 
      pushing ultraliberal legislation, bullying in the 
      judicial system, and infiltrating the nation's public 
      school systems. Please read my urgent update below - Mat.

On October 15th, radical pro-homosexual activists threw 
concrete bricks through the door and windows of the Christian 
Liberty Academy in suburban Chicago because it was hosting a 
fundraising banquet for Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

      The bricks were accompanied by a note that threatened, 
      "This is just a sample of what we will do if you don't 
      shut down (pro-family advocate) Scott Lively and AFTAH." 

Matt Barber, Vice President of our affiliate group, Liberty 
Counsel Action, strongly denounced this criminal act in an 
interview shortly after the news broke: 

      "This really amounts to an act of terrorism in that they  
      threatened more violence if Dr. Lively and his speech went  
      forward and if the Christian Liberty Academy did not  
      disassociate from Americans for Truth About Homosexuality."

As I've said many times, it's the radicals who demand tolerance 
who are the most intolerant of opposing viewpoints! They actually 
called AFTAH a "hate" organization after throwing concrete bricks 
inscribed with the message "Shut Down Lively" through the 
Christian academy's windows! 

      I reiterate a comment Matt Barber made in his interview: 

      "We are going to speak God's truth in love without fear 
      of reprisal, or even in this case, without fear of violence. 
      So I have a message to the gay terrorists that perpetrated 
      this crime: Your terrorist tactics have failed, and you will 
      not succeed in silencing God's truth."  

++We will not be silenced!  

Promoting the homosexual agenda while attempting to redefine 
marriage and family by pro-homosexual activists is perhaps the 
greatest "culture war" of our generation.  

One recent example of the growing intensity of this battle is 
seen in the refusal of certain liberal office holders to properly 
enforce pro-marriage laws that have been passed by Congress.  

The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) defines marriage as being 
between one man and one woman for federal purposes. It also 
declares that no state is required to recognize a same-sex 
relationship that has been declared a "marriage" in another 

      Yet, President Obama and his Attorney General, Eric Holder, 
      have acted as both judge and jury in declaring the DOMA 
      law to be "unconstitutional" and "indefensible." 

I am calling on my Liberty Counsel team to rise up against this 
anti-family activism!  DOMA is a law passed by the people's 
representatives in the United States Congress, and it is the 
duty of the Executive Branch to enforce the law!

Further, we must STOP any momentum and traction pro-homosexual 
groups hope to achieve by their attacks going unchallenged! 
      I urge you to take a moment and sign our Statement of 
      Support upholding the federal Defense of Marriage Act. 
We insist that President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder 
and the Department of Justice, congressional leaders, and 
military leaders actively comply with and defend the Defense 
of Marriage Act!

++Liberty Counsel is aggressively fighting back!

Recently, I also told you about a case involving two homosexual 
males living in New York who were demanding that their adopted 
child's birth certificate be "certified" that he was born to two 
"fathers" in Louisiana. Apparently, the homosexual couple thought 
it important to get the birth certificate changed to affirm facts 
which are biologically impossible! They were handed a well-deserved
defeat in federal court.  

      The details of this case illustrate the Pandora's Box of 
      disastrous consequences that emerge when we give legal 
      recognition to unnatural relationships. 

The "two daddies on the birth certificate" case is one of many 
that Liberty Counsel has been involved in over the years defending 
the bedrock institutions of marriage and family - and the ripple 
effects into adoption law. 

But perhaps even more damaging than the foothold radicals are 
gaining in the body of American law is the horrific deception 
and disinformation they are spreading!  

      Their advance is being paved with outright lies about the 
      practice of homosexuality, misleading "facts" about their 
      movement, and fraudulent use of taxpayer funds obtained by 
      cynically presenting their cause as a "civil rights" movement!

We must continue fighting and winning in both the courtroom and the
 court of public opinion, even given the flood 
of new attacks!  

      You can obtain invaluable help in fighting this battle  
      from the pages of Only One Mommy - it is simply one of  
      the best books yet written about the homosexual movement's 
      horrific social impact, written by one of marriage's best  
      friends and most courageous defenders.

This is perhaps the most significant "culture war" of our generation.  
Thank you for standing with me in this battle! 

May God bless you!
