Study:Children of gay couples were two to four times as likely to be on public assistance, more than twice as likely to be unemployed and more than twice as likely to have contemplated suicide

Study:Children of gay couples were two to four times as likely to be on public assistance, more than twice as likely to be unemployed and more than twice as likely to have contemplated suicide | Prayer Success Team | Scoop.it
The University of Texas-Austin is backing a sociology professor who came under withering attack for a study that concluded children of same-sex parents are more likely to be depressed or on welfare than kids raised by heterosexual couples.

 

The study asked thousands of adult children of straight, lesbian and homosexual parents dozens of questions and compared the results. While many questions did not produce statistically-significant differences, the study found major differences in a few categories.


Adult children of gay couples were two to four times as likely to be on public assistance, more than twice as likely to be unemployed and more than twice as likely to have contemplated suicide.

Tips to counter the gay agenda in your child's school

Teaching through conversation

These issues are prickly — make no mistake. You'll find, though, that if only your colleagues can be brought to understand the human sexual design, their other confusions will be a little more manageable. The best time to explain this design is in private conversation, before your committee meets to make decisions. Why? Simple: in the meeting itself, there won't be time. Not only that, but you'll be interrupted constantly, and if your colleagues don't have a good understanding of the issue already, your energy will be dissipated in "putting out fires." Another good reason to make the most of private conversation is that tempers are less likely to flare between two people than in a group.

When you converse, be gentle, be patient and listen carefully — but stick to your guns. It's all a matter of getting back to the basics of design. If your conversational partner is open to hearing about the Designer, too, that's great! But if not, don't worry about it — that may happen some other time. Your task at the moment is to resist the gay agenda. 

 


Knowing how to use sound bites

If you've explained the human sexual design in private conversation, then the "sound bites" to which you'll be limited in committee meetings will have a better chance of hitting home.

By "sound bites" I mean just two or three sentences that get your point across fast before you're interrupted. If people don't already know about the subtleties of the human sexual design, of the procreative and unitive purposes, this isn't the time to go into them. Focus on the obvious — on death and disease. Be blunt. Don't be reluctant to repeat yourself. Let your opponents speak, but don't let them change the subject.

If your colleagues say in a meeting, "We're not endorsing homosexuality, we're just presenting it as an alternative lifestyle," then don't even argue about what it means to "endorse" something. Just say something like this:

Okay, you're not endorsing; you're presenting. But we all know that not every lifestyle is "presentable." Homosexual behavior is a ticket to disease and early death. Sexual acts that kill should be no more "presentable" than drug addiction.

If your colleagues say in the meeting, "Morality is just a matter of opinion — don't you believe in being tolerant?" then don't even argue about the meaning of morality. Just say something like this:

We all believe in tolerance, but we all know that tolerance doesn't mean being open to everything. Habitual homosexual acts cut years from one's life span, and despite all of our teaching about "safe sex," those who practice them are thousands of times more likely to get AIDS. As teachers, how can we tell kids not to commit suicide — but to go ahead and commit suicidal forms of sex?

If your colleagues say in the meeting, "Homosexual kids can't help their feelings — haven't you any compassion?" then don't even argue about whether they can help their feelings. Just say something like this:

If I didn't believe in love and compassion for our children, I wouldn't be a teacher. But love and compassion mean doing what's good for them. Condemning them to a life of pain, disease and early death is the most uncompassionate thing we can do.

If your colleagues say in the meeting, "Church and state are separate — leave your faith at the schoolhouse door," then don't even argue about whether expressions of religious belief should be permitted in public schools. Just say something like this:

This isn't about the church, because even atheists oppose needless disease and death. We teach students in health class to avoid sweets so they won't get cavities; why shouldn't we teach them to avoid homosexual acts so they won't get syphilis or AIDS? 

 


Three final tips

There are three more things you can do.

Remember that the best defense is a good offense. Don't just respond to the proposals of gay advocates; get in there with your proposals first. Remember that explicitly religious speakers and programs have no chance of approval. That's all right; your immediate goal isn't conversion, but saving students from deadly propaganda.

Keep parents informed of everything the school is considering. Do this in the open, so that you can't be criticized. Remember, most parents want to protect their children even more strongly than you do! The problem is that they don't know what's going on.

Organize. Get together with like-minded people in your own school as well as others. Be willing to cooperate with anyone who opposes the gay agenda, whether or not he shares your faith. You mustn't compromise your faith, but that doesn't mean you should throw away potential allies.

Laura Lopez can counter the gay agenda in her public school — and you can counter it in yours. You just have to be prepared.

Outrageous:Gay Students Want To Oust Catholic Priest for Following Church Teachings--Time to oust the deviants

Outrageous:Gay Students Want To Oust Catholic Priest for Following Church Teachings--Time to oust the deviants | Prayer Success Team | Scoop.it
Two gay seniors at George Washington University (GWU) have initiated a coordinated campaign to ban Father Greg Schaffer, the Catholic chaplain, from the campus.

 

Two gay seniors at George Washington University (GWU) have initiated a coordinated campaign to ban Father Greg Schaffer, the Catholic chaplain, from the campus. Seniors Damian Legacy and Blake Bergen say they can no longer tolerate what they describe as Schaffer’s anti-homosexual and anti-abortion beliefs. In addition, the students claim that Schaffer’s encouragement that gay students lead a celibate lifestyle upsets them.

Catholic News Agency (CNA) reports that Legacy and Bergen asserted that Schaffer’s statements about homosexuality, consistent with Catholic teaching, are unacceptable and, as a result, have launched a campaign to force him off the campus. The campus newspaper indicates that the two students have filed a formal complaint with the administration and are holding a vigil outside the GWU Newman Center until the priest is removed from the campus.

Legacy, who is now a priest in the schismatic Old Catholic Church, submitted a report to GWU administration regarding the proper vetting of campus religious leaders and plans to request that the Student Association defund the Newman Center.

Students and parishioners of Schaffer’s, however, are rallying around him.

“I have never seen Fr. Greg be less than compassionate to any student on an issue of sexuality,” said Dawn Eden, Catholic author and speaker. “He’s been instrumental in helping them to find healing in Christ.”

Eden added that participation in Catholic life “shot up exponentially” since Schaffer’s arrival at the GWU Newman Center in 2009.

CNA reports that both current and past Newman Center students have voiced their support of Schaffer, and have argued against the attempt of Legacy and Bergen to penalize him for upholding the teachings of the Catholic faith. Bloggers posting on “The Chaplain We Know,” described Schaffer as “self-sacrificing” and “encouraging,” as well as instrumental in their conversions back to the Catholic faith.

One blogger posted, “The kindness and unconditional affection he expressed was what gave me the strength to realize that I was loved despite my mistakes.”

Eden said that if Catholics are looking for “someone to rally behind” in order to tell the culture where they stand, Fr. Schaffer is “a good and holy priest” worthy of such support.

No, if they want to attend a University that offers a Catholic Center that teaches according to Catholic doctrine they are expected to abide by the principles the Church was founded upon and practice Church doctrine, otherwise they need to go elsewhere. There are plenty of secular schools that accept homosexuals. Our Catholic/religious institutions have higher standards and a religious right to practice their beliefs. The students need to go elsewhere. May God bless this priest and keep him where he is.

“It is not without significance that the word disciple occurs in the New Testament 269 times, Christian only 3 times, and believers 2 times. This surely indicates that the task of the church is not so much to make “Christians” or “believers” but “disciples.” 1
