Coming Soon to a High School Near You

by Hilary White, www.LifeSiteNews.com

"Distributing condoms in schools "in the context of combating AIDS" "trivializes" sexuality and education and must be fought by concerned parents says a high-level Vatican official. In an official statement released last week, Agostino Cardinal Vallini, the pope's Vicar General of the diocese of Rome, responded to a decision by the civil authorities of the province of Rome to allow the distribution of condoms from vending machines in high schools."

Help Protect Parental Rights

From parentalrights.org:

Dear Friend of Parental Rights,

Monday in a Harlem middle school, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told a group of 120 students that administration officials are actively discussing “when and how it might be possible to join” (that is, ratify) the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). As before, she also communicated what a disgrace it is that the U.S. would stand with only Somalia against such a widely-accepted treaty.

This is the first direct public statement by the Obama administration that it will seek ratification of the UN CRC.

In my 30 years of political involvement, I have learned to recognize this as what is called a “trial balloon.” Like in World War I trench warfare, our opponents have “sent up a balloon” to see if it will draw fire. If things remain quiet, they will proceed with their plans to push for ratification of the CRC in the U.S. Senate.

To discourage them from doing so, we need to make sure that our voices are heard with unmistakable clarity. We must let the Obama administration know that we oppose this anti-family, anti-American treaty.

Here’s what we need you all to do:

1. Call the White House comments line at 202-456-1111. Tell them you heard the administration wants to ratify the CRC, and you strongly oppose this giving away of U.S. sovereignty to the UN. Also keep in mind that this treaty gives the government jurisdiction to override any decision made by any parent if the government thinks that a better decision can be made—even if there is no proof of any harm.

2. Call Ambassador Susan Rice’s office at the United Nations. Tell her that you want her to represent the United States to the world rather than trying to get the United States to go along with international law initiated by the UN. The US Mission at the United Nations can be reached at 212-415-4000 (press 6 to leave your message). This number has been disconnected through our efforts. You can also contact the Public Diplomacy Office at 212-415-4050.

3. Contact your Senators and urge them to oppose ratification of this treaty. (Find your Senators’ contact information by typing your zip code into the box here.) Ask them also to defeat it once and for all by cosponsoring SJRes 16 – the Parental Rights Amendment.

It is very important that we speak up right now. Please call before you close this email!

Sincerely,

Michael Farris

2010 Census: Change You Can Believe Will Happen

Obama White House Seeks Inclusion of Same-Sex Unions in Census

by Kathleen Gilbert, www.LifeSiteNews.com

The Obama administration has directed the Census Bureau to find a way to include homosexual "marriages," partnerships, and unions in the 2010 census, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

"The administration continues to make progress on the president's longstanding commitment to promoting equality for [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] Americans," said White House spokesman Ben LaBolt.

While the census has in the past collected volunteered data on same-sex "marriages," White House officials said that the Obama administration intends to abandon the previous interpretation of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as prohibiting the release of such data.

...

This is the second move by the Obama administration this week to express solidarity with the homosexual lobby. On Wednesday, the President signed a memorandum granting restricted benefits to the homosexual partners of federal employees.

Activists were dissatisfied that the directive did not extend to health or retirement benefits. Obama has assured critics questioning his commitment to the homosexual lobby that he intends to repeal DOMA through the legislative process.

Senate to Approve Hate Crimes Law Via Tourism Bill Today or Tomorrow

by Peter J. Smith, www.LifeSiteNews.com

The United States Senate is poised to approve hate crimes legislation within the next couple days by way of an amendment attached to an unrelated bill on tourism.

According to the Washington Blade, a D.C.-based homosexual news journal, the Senate leadership plans to attach the hate crimes bill, S. 909, also known as the Matthew Shephard Act, to The Travel Promotion Act of 2009 (S 1023). The Blade quoted its source as saying “we're thinking that the vote will happen probably [Tuesday] or Wednesday.”

LifeSiteNews reported last week that Senate officials were looking to smuggle controversial hate crimes legislation into federal law by passing it as an amendment to another major piece of legislation instead of a stand-alone piece of legislation. The US House of Representatives had passed its version, H.R. 1913, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, as a stand-alone bill by a 249-175 margin in April.

Help Protest Appointment of Homosexual Activist Kevin Jennings

From Beetle Blogger:

Kevin Jennings, founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), was appointed by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to be Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools.
  • GLSEN once sponsored a conference at Tufts University that was advertised to "youth only ages 14 to 21."
  • Three homosexual activists employed by the Massachusetts Departments of Health and Education led a youth workshop titled "What They Didn’t Tell You about Queer Sex & Sexuality in Health Class." Among other activities, the activists guided the students on gay sex practices.
  • Jennings has spoken publicly about a high school student he once counseled who was in a sexual relationship with an older man — yet Jennings never reported this abuse to the authorities, the school, or the child’s parents.
What You Can Do:
  1. Call Secretary of Education Arne Duncan at 202-401-3000 (e-mail: arne.duncan@ed.gov) and urge him to withdraw his appointment.
  2. Call President Obama at 202-456-1414 (email: here) and urge him to withdraw this appointment.
