Open Letter to Singapore Minister of Law K Shanmugam Re: Foreign Influence and 377A

Mr. K. Shanmugam, the Minister of Law in Singapore, is charged with enforcing legislation, including the expansion of a law which forbids foreign influence in Singapore's politics.



And yet ... the country allowed a lesbian lawyer from India to visit and speak about their efforts to repeal the anti-sodomy law in their country.

And how convenient that this takes place at the same time that Singapore's courts are hearing three cases to determine whether the anti-sodomy law should be struck down as constitutional, as well.

Why would the Singapore government allow her into the country, since it is quite obvious that this woman is trying to push the same agenda in that country?

A number of pro-family groups and activists signalled their outrage, and they even sponsored a petition:


Following this, I posted the following open letter to the Minister:


Mr. Shanmugam, as a foreigner myself, would I now be permitted to speak in favor of #377a in your country? Or would you discriminate against me for defending natural law and public order?

In fact, I would militantly urge you to begin some degree of enforcement of this law, since sexual perversion, acts of gross indecency between men should be discouraged at all costs.

As an American, I can fully attest that the forced decriminalization of sodomy has created more problems in our country. In fact, we in the United States have a growing community of pro-family activists throughout disgusted with the advance of sexual perversion in the name of "Love is Love." From shameful gay "pride" parades to the spread of venereal disease, broken homes, advanced mental illness, the breakdown of civic bonds in many cities--the push to normalize LGBT has simply allowed the abnormal to dictate and demean what is good and right.

Mr. Shanmugam, would you please explain to me why you are so determined to placate a small group of sexual deviants instead of honoring the public good and natural law?

Mr. Shanmugam, why are you so determined to undermine the rule of law and the public good, all in the name of "social justice"?

Why would any nation want to treat mental illness as a civil right?

Your Forefather Lee Kuan Yew intended an orderly society, one in which economic liberty with cultural restraint ensured blessings for the greatest number. Why would you seek to undermine this?

For the love of God and all that is Good, maintain #377A.

Sincerely,

Arthur Scha

MassResistance “Drag Queen” victories continue as parents make a difference!

MassResistance “Drag Queen” victories continue as parents make a difference!

Drag Queen events stopped and their perpetrators pushed back.

Tens of thousands of dollars spent by communities to deal with LGBT attacks on our protests.

November 7, 2019
ALT TEXT Local press report of firing of Leander Library Director after MassResistance community pressure.
When pro-family parents and citizens are organized, equipped, and focused to confront the seemingly overwhelming (and often vicious) LGBT agenda targeting children in their communities, amazing things can happen.
When a “Drag Queen Story Hour” comes to a town, the LGBT activists assume that they’ll be able to steamroll over any pushback from parents and successfully intimidate (and demonize) anyone who speaks out. They are confident that the politicians will stay on board, and they’ll be able keep these events going indefinitely.
But MassResistance is re-writing that script! Here are some recent updates:


1. Leander, Texas: DQSH events stopped and librarian fired.

Leander is a suburb of Austin, TX. Back in August, after being contacted by local parents, MassResistance published a 57-page report exposing the depraved behavior of the “Drag Queen” coming to the Leander Public Library. We also organized a massive citizen outcry and a loud public protest outside the library against the event and the City Council for allowing it.
According to press reports, the police security at the protest cost the city $20,000. This was NOT because the pro-family parents were a problem, but because violent Antifa activists from that region had announced they were coming to harass the parents.
All this really got the City Council’s attention, and things changed quickly. Within days, they drastically changed the library rules regarding room rentals for events and also required background checks for all presenters to children.
There have been no DQSH events in the library since then.
However, after that the librarian insisted on sponsoring other pro-LGBT themed story programs. MassResistance continued rallying local parents to protest against the city and the library. One event slated for July was to feature a man pretending to be a transgendered woman, comic book author Lilah Sturges. The outrage from the public was huge! Two hours before the event was to begin, the city canceled the program.
Then, in October, the Leander Library sponsored a “Pride Reading Hour” to promote LGBT themes to youth. According to local reports, the event was poorly attended, and also endured a significant backlash from the community. The public opposition continued.
Finally, on Oct. 25, it was announced that the Director of the Leander Public Library was being discharged, effective Nov. 1. (She had been in that position since 2007.) According to news reports, the firing was directly connected to the library’s hosting of the Drag Queen Story Hour and the other LGBT pride events.
The City Council had gotten the message. Leander Mayor Troy Hill told a local newspaper:
It was insubordination on their part … Everybody needs to ask themselves, ‘If you had a boss and you went around and didn’t tell them and you created a firestorm --- regardless of whether it’s good, bad or indifferent --- would your boss have a right to fire you?’ I think most bosses would. The library staff 100 percent brought this on our city. I feel bad for our Parks Director … There was a clear procedure, and they didn’t follow it. I hope they will [be held accountable].”
We clearly made the public officials understand that there is no place in any public library for the destructive LGBT agenda targeting children.


2. Austin, Texas: No more DQSH events in city library since MassResistance exposed the Drag Queen

In Austin Texas, David Lee Richardson, aka Miss Kitty Litter, had been reading to children in the Austin city libraries as a Drag Queen for over a year. That needed to stop!
On August 12, 2019, Austin MassResistance members held a public hearing and testified before the Austin City Council about the depraved social media postings by “Miss Kitty Litter.” The LGBT activists there were incensed; one of them spat on our people and was arrested by the police! But the City Council refused to stop the Drag Queen events.
Then a few weeks later our Texas MassResistance group uncovered “Miss Kitty Litter’s” criminal record – he had been convicted of prostitution. This ignited a huge outrage by parents. The story went viral on pro-family and conservative news sites around the world.
Since then, the Austin Library System has not held another Drag Queen Story Hour!
Unbelievably, in October a local elementary school brought in “Miss Kitty Litter” to read to children in another Drag Queen program. This did not go unnoticed, and MassResistance made sure it got in the media. See:
Austin, TX Elementary School Invites Convicted Prostitute Drag Queen to Children’s Storytime


3. Dallas, Texas: No more DQSH events since the MassResistance protest

On June 13, in Dallas, TX, a bizarre pair of “Drag Queens” led a disturbing Drag Queen Story Hour event at the city’s Grauwyler Park Public Library. These events were apparently going to be held monthly. MassResistance jumped into action.
The librarian told us that “background checks” had been done on the Drag Queens. Our Texas MassResistance team researched them and posted the reports: “Cassi Nova” aka James Gary Love and “Jenna Skyy” aka Joel S. Hoselton, So much for “background checks.” It’s hard to believe anyone would invite these two to read to children. (Note the body-colored chest attachments with make-up to make it appear that they have women’s breasts.)
During the event, a few of our people were inside documenting it. The two Drag Queens read books such as “What color is your underwear” to the children. And a much larger group, organized by our new Dallas chapter of MassResistance, held a rousing protest outside.
The powers-that-be got the message, also. Since then, there have been no further DQSH events there.


4. Houston, Texas. No more DQSH events since MassResistance exposed the Drag Queens

In Houston, the Mayor and several City Council members were strong public supporters of Drag Queen Story Time in the city’s main public library. It seemed unstoppable.
Starting in November 2018, Houston MassResistance parents pounded the City Council in meeting after meeting with strong testimony about the Drag Queens. So in February, 2019, the politicians decided to move it to a different venue.
Then in March, and again in April, the bombshells exploded! Our MassResistance activists exposed two of the Drag Queens as convicted child sex offenders! From there, the whole thing fell apart. Within days, the organizers announced they were abandoning the Drag Queen effort. There hasn’t been a Drag Queen Story Hour in Houston since then!


5. Huntington Woods, Michigan: Drag Queen event and LGBT youth event cancelled

Last December, MassResistance members in Michigan contacted us for help to take on and stop the Drag Queen Story Hour program scheduled to take place in Huntington Woods, a very liberal suburb of Detroit.
MassResistance got right to work. We stirred up a veritable firestorm in the Detroit mainstream media over the controversy. When people saw what was happening, our fight against it attracted a lot of energy.
Nevertheless, the liberal Huntington Woods City Council was almost unanimous its support for the Drag Queen Event. But as the media reports continued, more and more non-liberal people in the community began to lose their fear of opposing the LGBT movement. So in mid-December the City Council hosted a special meeting in to defend the story hour program. It had limited success. They even hosted another program in late January. But people kept up their opposition to it.
Since then, the politicians have appeared to be tiring of this controversy. The city of Huntington Woods seems to have backed away from holding Drag Queen programs. They had advertised one in April, but we don’t know if it actually occurred.
Recently the Huntington Woods library announced was going to try again on Nov. 9 and host another Drag Queen Story Hour, along with a “Drop-in GSA” -- an LGBT event for youth. But both them have since been cancelled!

6. Chula Vista, California: No more Drag Queen events (so far) since MassResistance jumped in

The Drag Queen Story Hour battle in Chula Vista, CA, a suburb of San Diego, began two months ago and is still going on. Both the Mayor and a "gay" activist City Council member are strong supporters of it. Nevertheless, local MassResistance activists have been putting a full-court press on the City Council to get them to officially put a stop to any more of these depraved events in the local library.
This week it was revealed via a Freedom of Information Act request by MassResistance that the Chula Vista Police Dept. spent approximately $42,000 for security details at the MassResistance protest outside the library on Sept. 10. The need for this was NOT because of any danger from the MassResistance parents - but because of the angry, unhinged mob of LGBT counter-protesters who came there to harass them.
The parent protest and their ongoing vocal opposition have had an effect. Drag Queen events have stopped for the time being – and there are none planned that anyone knows about. But there’s much more battling ahead to make sure it's permanent!

Moving forward

No other pro-family conservative groups that we know of put the in time, effort, organization, and strategy planning – not to mention the confrontational attitude – that MassResistance does to support the local parents and citizens fighting these hideous events and the public officials supporting them. It makes a big difference. And the LGBT movement REALLY despises us for it. But we’re in this to succeed!

Report on Chula Vista Drag Queen Story Hour, From San Diego MassResistance Member Lillie Hebert



$42,312,79 in our taxpayers’ money was spent on September 10, 2019 for security at the drag queen reading program.  It was not discussed, nor voted on.  Steve Padilla brought it to our city on his own.  There was no public discussion at all, too, but they used our taxpayers’ money!   The idea was totally Steve Padilla’s and rubber stamped by Mary Salas, the mayor. The LGBT met in the park and came marching and chanting loudly to the area where the Mass Resistance were.  There were the bomb squad, canine patrol, undercover police with the uniformed police and the swat team. During the protest, the police had their backs facing us as they stood guard looking at the opposite side the entire time! Word had gone out through the social media for the LGBT people to be there and with supporters. They saw the opportunity to berate and call names to the people who had gathered in prayer and in singing to express their disapproval of the Chula Vista Library hosting such a bizarre spectacle.  From this group, the LGBT proved to be the real haters, choosing to persecute the Christians, and holding signs that mocked Jesus with yelling sounds of vulgar.





The Mass Resistance held signs that said “No Drag Queen Reading” or “Stop the DQ Reading” or “Leave the Children Alone” as we prayed or sang.   Steve Padilla broke through the barricade, leading the group calling names trying to provoke us into an antagonistic exchange.  There was no reaction save for one man who took offense of the sign they carried that read, “Jesus is coming on your dad’s back” and the other that read “Jesus is coming on your mother’s face”.  He did yell back for Jesus!




The LGBT group wishing to promote acceptance and differences is not doing a good job by lying to the mayor and city council members when they get up and say we, the religious groups, the Mass Resistance people are the ones who provoke anger!  They make false accusations about everyone of us as we sit there listening to their fake stories.   I showed pictures of the police standing guard during this protest and the police were looking at them, not at the Mass Resistance group of people.
By wasting our taxpayer’s money, the library has had to cut The Stem Club, and other educational programs.  Many more children are suffering for this drag queen reading!
Jill Galvez and Mike Diaz need one more council member to get this problem on the agenda.  John McCann refuses to go along with them but claims the library is the one to stop it.  Our Mass Resistance group went to the Library Commissioners’ meeting and we were told that it belongs to the city council members to stop it!   John McCann needs to change his mind and vote with Mike and Jill.  He is the one who is hurting Chula Vista, because there will be more readings unless a charter is signed stating there will be no more readings!

Any time there are drag queen readings, the Mass Resistance and the church groups will be there to protest the waste of our taxpayers’ money!   We invite you to join us to stop this waste of money.   It will cost the city more than the $42, 312.79.

Reflections on TPUSA “Culture War” Town Hall at The Ohio State University


On October 29th, 2019, Turning Point USA, headed by Charlie Kirk, hosted their 6th “Culture War” panel taking on some harder hitting questions in the brewing fight of moral and cultural issues culture. This sixth forum took place at Ohio State University, and the hard-hitting questions came … hard. Before I get to the events that transpired, I want to provide a little background about Turning Point USA.



Kirk wants to take on the so-called culture war. Ok, but why is he inviting guest hosts who are pretty liberal on some of the cultural issues? For example, Tomi Lahren, one his guests in different TPUSA forums, is a center-right leaning pundit, but she is pro-choice. Abortion is one of the most contentious issues in the culture war.  More disconcerting, Kirk invited a guest panelist/participant named Rob Smith. Smith is black, an Iraq war veteran, and he’s openly gay. Yes, and he is proud of it. On an episode of Tucker Carlson, Smith announced without any reserve or hesitation that he was “married” to a husband.

Why does TPUSA invite speakers and guest hosts who are fighting against conservatives and conservatism on the culture war? Someone please explain to me how anyone fights a culture war when the key partisans in the fight have all but given up fighting the culture war to begin with?
Furthermore, Charlie Kirk took photos with “Lady MAGA” proudly at the 2019 Politicon Convention, which took place in Tennessee this year (probably due to the fact that fewer people every year are attending the convention, in large part because the discussions panels are one-sides and the panelists are repetitive and distinctly anti-Trump). Lady MAGA is a drag queen. Why are conservatives normalizing, promoting sexual deviance?

So, with that background laid down, let’s review the key events of the October 29th, 2019 TPUSA forum.

During the question period, a young man named Dave Reilly came up to the mike and said:
“We understand that sexual liberation is political control. It’s a form of political control. You have advocated multiple times on accepting homosexuality, accepting homosexual acts as normative in the conservative movement. How does anal sex help us win the culture war?”



BAM! I was shocked and greatly pleased that a younger person finally put this question out there. Why are conservatives continuing to cave on the issues of homosexuality, gay marriage, and now transgenderism? Why are conservative pundits running away from taking a stand on the fundamental conservative principle of family? For the last five years, I have been sounding the alarm about the moral decay associated with homosexuality, and the political tyranny which is coming in the wake of the whole LGBT Agenda. It seemed that my outrage was falling on deaf ears. Those fears were dispelled on October 29th at Ohio State University. It was so gratifying to hear someone from the younger generation speak out about this, and call out these so-called conservatives for pandering to the so-called LGBT community in their push for a more “inclusive” conservatism.

The audience erupted with loud cheers and cries of support for the question. It was really stunning! The answers from Kirk and Smith were quite revealing. Smith immediately attacked Reilly: “Can you have the balls to ask the gay man on the stage that question?” Reilly had asked both of them. His question was bold, and he had boldly asked it. There should be no question about the young man’s courage. Smith began to sputter and repeat himself a little bit, as he was clearly caught off guard by this question.

Smith then gave a non-answer:

“This is America. This is the greatest freakin’ nation in the world. We realize that America is great because we have Western values.”

Right—and one of those Western values is the nuclear family and sex as best expressed within the confines of marriage between one man and one woman. So what was the point of that statement Smith continued:

“We realize that gays and lesbians get to contribute to American society in the same way that everybody else is.”

What exactly do they “contribute” in their status as living out sexual perversion? They do not give birth to children, for starters. On top of that, the sexually destructive behaviors lead to mental and emotional problems, as well as the spread of venereal disease. On top of that, LGBT militancy has forced perverse curricula into public schools, without parental knowledge or permission. Individuals who choose not to celebrate LGBT activities and ideas are hounded out of the public square, sued in court, lose their jobs, or even face jail time. How is this contributing anything worthwhile to America?



Smith then added: “When you continue doing that, you realize that we are here, we are able to do everything.” What kind of answer was this? It showed once again that Smith was caught off guard and clearly offended by the question, as though anyone should question his behaviors. Then Smith played the veteran card, as if to silence further debate.

“I served in the military …

Reilly cut through the debate and asked again: “How does homosexual sex help us win the culture war?”

Smith tried spin it back on Reilly, as though he was affirming that homosexuality is helping conservatives win the culture war. Then Smith used the basest response yet: “It’s a BS question. It’s not a good faith question.”

Wrong, Rob! Wrong, Charlie! Wrong, TPUSA! It’s an EXCELLENT question. The loud chorus of boos which followed Rob’s arrogant, dismissive response confirmed that Reilly’s question was well-taken.

I have waited a long time for someone to start asking these tough questions, to start putting the screw to political pundits and elected officials. Why is the conservative movement in general, and Republican officials in particular, caving on the LGBT issues?  At the Republican National Committee Convention in 2016, pro-family and Evangelical forces strived to maintain the pro-life and pro-family planks of the party platform. They not only succeeded, but exceeded expectations. The RNC platform rejects the Obergefell “gay marriage” decision, rejects transgender bathrooms, and even affirms the value of reparative therapy for individuals seeking to leave LGBT behaviors.
And yet, elected officials in Congress put up the weakest arguments to stop the Equality Act, legislation which if passed would pervert the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to treat sexual perversions like homosexual, transgenderism, and even pedophilia as civil rights. The wrecking ball damage of state-sponsored tyranny that would result from the passage of this law is incalculable if she legislation was enacted into law.

Conservative pundits refuse to question the fundamental arguments about homosexuality and transgenderism, such as “Are people really born that way?” Other questions, like “Why are we normalizing mental illness” and “Should we allow drag queens around children” have become more prominent, as well. Sadly, libertarian-leaning pundits like David French have actually DEFENDED Drag Queen Story Hour. Unbelievable. How much more are conservatives going to tolerate on this LGBT front or rather affront?

Trying to help Rob Smith save face at The Ohio State University forum, Charlie Kirk jumped in:
“Honestly, I don’t care what two consenting adults do …

Reilly shouted back: “You should!”

Yes, we should. Private morality, or the lack thereof, does indeed have public consequences. Nations have criminalized incest, for example, even if it were to take place between two consenting adults. Prostitution is also criminalized, because she rampant sexual perversion undermines the moral fabric of a community as well as endangering public health. Kirk then adopted a similar attitude of derision toward Reilly and retorted: “Your hyper focus on it is kinda weird.” Smith then piled on: “You seem to be really interested in gay sex. If you’re into that, you can go find someone to do it with.”

Of course, the last comments were an example of a staggering left-wing tactic: don’t debate the issue, attack the person. Individuals who rightly oppose homosexuality, including its rampant promotion and pervasiveness, get slammed as “closet homosexuals” in turn. Really bad form, Charlie and Ron. Really bad!  So much for an honest debate. Rob couldn’t leave well enough alone. What he followed up with next was really degrading: “Someone like that has no place in the conservative movement. That is so behind the times.”

Another chorus of boos followed, as was warranted. Wasn’t the whole Culture War forum about debating cultural issues? No one of the panelists is suggesting that that pro-family conservative has no place there. Sounds like a robust form of censorship. And since when has conservatism been about being up with “the times”? Since when has civilization, Biblical morality, or scientific fact had anything to do with fads and passing opinions? The very nature of conservatism is protection of revered institutions with a commitment to deliberate—thoughtful and slow—change if needed. Conservatism is about fighting for eternal values, not going with the flow.

The next questioner didn’t let this disregard from the two panelists pass:



“We don’t want centrists in the conservative movement. We want to retain our core values. We don’t want drag queens … You’ve advocated for homosexuality. You said there is a place for the gay agenda in the conservative movement. You’re also comfortable with transgenders and cross-dressers. So my questions, is there any points where conservatives should take a moral stance on Christian morality or should we abandon it altogether? What is your brand of conservatism doing to conserve Christian morality?”

ANOTHER GREAT QUESTION!

Conservativism, to be robust and effective, must be firmly planted in Judeo-Christian values. Yes, indeed. Islamic values, which in a chronological sense are quite progressive, considering that the Koran was written after the Torah and New Testament, do not bolster conservatism, but rather a large state at the expense of individual liberty, and even freedom of conscience. Hinduism rejects scientific fact in large measure, and even Buddhism and Daoism abandon rugged skepticism for blind mysticism. The fusion of faith and reason is essential to conservatism, and this fusion is best portrayed in the Judeo-Christian ethic.

Using another left-wing tactic, shaming the questioner rather than debating the question, Kirk pointed at Smith and said “So, you’re saying that you don’t want him in the movement?” Then he said, “I want to rationally understand an irrational position.”

What a sham deflection! Once again, instead of responding, Charlie attacks the guy. The second questioner was really clear about defending natural marriage. What is so hard about responding to that? Easy—TPUSA is NOT interesting in conserving the culture, not interested in conserving morality—and those two young men called them out on it.

Rob Smith tried to give a more spirited defense for his homosexuality while also denigrated the more insidious iterations of the LGBT movement in our culture. He talked about the “alphabet soup left.” He then referred the whole movement to allow children to transition into another gender as “garbage.” It’s not just garbage—it’s evil! Then Smith called himself a “gay Christian.”
This is nonsensical. There is no “gay” identity. Homosexuality is a behavior, even an ideology, but not an identity. Charlie Kirk says “I’m a Christian, and I think the Bible is the greatest book ever written.”

OK, well what do Christians find that the Bible says about homosexuality?

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” (Romans 1:26-27)

And

“Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11And such were some of you” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

You cannot be a Christian and walk openly in sin. The grace of God teaches us to deny ungodliness and live godly lives (Titus 2:11-14)—and that includes rejecting homosexual behaviors and embracing a new identity in Christ (1 John 4:17). I submit that there are Christians who struggle with same-sex temptations or gender dysphoria. Life in Christ is a process of growing in grace (2 Peter 3:18), and there are many Christians who may not understand their full standing and the fulfilled promises which they can claim in Christ Jesus.

But the notion of a “Gay Christian” is not sound doctrine and should not be tolerated. The notion of “gay conservative” is also untenable. There may be conservatives who struggle with same-sex temptations, just as there are conservatives who eat too much, drink alcohol to excess, etc.—but in no way should these behaviors be celebrated as identities and welcomed into conservative movements as a part of a broader “inclusive” outreach.

For the last 20 years, conservatives have been bombarded with this harsh talking point—mostly from the media, major corporate interests, and liberal activist groups—that conservatives, that Republicans need to be a Big Tent. What conservatives seem to forget, however, is that a tent has to be grounded in something, cover something, and stand for something. Otherwise, it’s a piece of cloth on the ground, no matter how big, which everyone can walk on, and which does not serve its intended purpose.

And this is precisely why conservatism is not conserving anything. Instead of taking a stand on moral issues, conservative activists and the politicians they elect accommodate and give up. They have continued to cede ground on the complex yet compelling moral issues of our day. The attitude has been “we can’t win on this issue. Let’s just give up and focus on what we can win on.” And it’s not working. The Overton Window has moved so far to the left, that we have Drag Queens in our libraries and pornographic images pushed on our children in public schools as “sex education.”
This stand-and-retreat accommodationism is not acceptable.

Donald Trump didn’t run that kind of campaign when he ran for President. He responded effectively to the border crises and immigration problems that this country faces. He spoke openly about the plight of mothers and fathers who lost their children to illegal aliens, even when the mainstream media and political class refused to talk about them. He recognized the damage done by “free trade” policies—which were not really free trade—and how they eviscerated our country’s manufacturing base. He also responded boldly to the problems of radical Muslims, Islam, Islamic terror, and the coming refugee crisis which had overrun Europe.

The Pro-Life Movement is not that kind of movement, either. Since 1973, when Roe v. Wade was shoved onto the country by judicial fiat, pro-life activists have punched back twice as hard, doubled-down on their demands to make abortion illegal and to make life the best choice for mothers and fathers to make. 40 years later, the pro-life movement has become distinctly militant and effective. A number of states have criminalized abortions after different timetables closer to the actual conception of the child. They continue pressuring lawmakers to take a firm stance on the life issue. In the last ten months, Congressional Republicans have tried to bring up a bill 85 times to spare the lives of babies born alive after a botched abortion. When they were in the majority, Congressional Republicans attempted to repeal Obamacare only  55 times. The pro-life movement has been so driven, that even bluntly pro-choice real estate mogul Donald Trump became the most pro-life Republican President on record—even more than Reagan, and actually fulfilled the promises offered by previous Republican administrations to defund Planned Parenthood and install an unprecedented number of pro-life judges and executive officials.



That kind of robust advocacy and consistency, not leniency, is needed in the culture war. Ironically, TPUSA’s “Culture War” town halls have shown how this and other so-called conservative movements are more like “culture surrenders”. The garbled and perverse responses from Charlie Kirk and Rob Smith on the infiltration of homosexuality into mainstream conservatism really called this out, and called out it quite well.

I am so glad that the young men who lined up to ask questions put the issues out there so succinctly. It’s time to hold political pundits, commentators and gatekeepers to higher standards. We need to be confronting our elected officials and national opinion makers on these issues, especially the integrity of the family and the rampant moral corruption of the LGBT movement. Let’s hope that more young people will ask these hard questions to mainstream conservative leaders and proponents and put a stop to this LGNBT pandering and disregard for faith and family, not just freedom.

TPUSA is a blight on conservatism, and they were finally called out for it. Now it’s time for battle-tested, war-minded conservatives to take up the fight for faith, family, and freedom and call out this insidious LGBT Agenda, which has warped its way among the Christian faithful and within the conservative movement in the United States and around the world. If younger people can ask these bold questions and take conservative thought-leaders to task, what’s holding back the rest of us?

- Theodore Roosevelt
October 31, 2019
We made it!
Outstanding news! As of this afternoon we’ve reached – and surpassed – our $50,000 fundraising goal, which will be matched by a generous donor. To be exact, we raised $53,145.33.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated at this critical time.

Nearly 500 people donated from across the USA and Canada, and as far away as Singapore and the UK.

There was a wonderful last-minute surge! Most of the donations were via credit card. But many, especially at the end, came by US mail. We hadn’t been to our PO Box in a few days due to weather issues and road construction. When we got there today it was overflowing with donations, which easily brought us over the top. A number of those donors took advantage of our $1,000 donation offer of a signed copy of Mitt Romney’s Deception: His Stealth Promotion of “Gay Rights” and “Gay Marriage” in Massachusetts.

We have the best activists and supporters anywhere!

Now .. back to winning the culture war!

Thanks again,

Decriminalization of Homosexuality Has Led to the Criminalization of the Natural Order: Time to Fight Back



I cannot tell you how many complaints and criticisms I receive from people because of my work for MassResistance.
"Arthur, why are you so obsessed about LGBT?"
"Arthur, don't you realize that we are not going to win elections if people think that Republicans, that conservatives are 'anti-gay'"?
"Arthur, gay marriage has left the barn. It is too late to stop that horse. Get over it."
"Arthur, the best way going forward when dealing with LGBT is 'Live and Let Live'"
But is "live and let live" the wisest course of action? Is it too harsh for pro-family activists to call out homosexuality, transgenderism, bisexuality, etc. for what they are: destructive behaviors which undermine the natural order? Is it really the proper course of action for us to seek compromise and common ground with homosexuals, whether individuals or the activist lobby groups which represent them? Was it right for conservative leader Margaret Thatcher during her days in the minority Tory government to fight for the decriminalization of sodomy in her own country? Was it right for the United States Supreme Court to weigh in on this matter in 2015 and strike down all lives barring the redefinition of marriage beyond the union of one man and one woman? Is it a good idea for President Donald Trump to appeal to world leaders to decriminalize homosexuality?

Preeminent British historian and scholar Paul Johnson writes (as quoted by Peter LaBarbera) offers some controversial, yet compelling and ultimately correct assessments on this:
"The radical agenda [or the worldly, progressive movements] …with its strong appeal to the idealistic, as well as the materialistic, instincts of mankind, especially among young people, does constitute an alternative religion. Like any other form of humanism, it replaces God by man, and the welfare – or supposed welfare – of man, rather than the worship of God and obedience to his commandments, as the object of human existence and the purpose of society. That, of course, is its defect. The Jesuit theologian Karl Rahner once argued that it is the consciousness of God, the acceptance that there is power outside and above ourselves, to whom we owe allegiance and whose guidance we must follow, which essentially distinguishes mankind from other creatures.
....
"There were many of us, in the 1960s, who felt that there were grave practical and moral objections to the criminalisation of homosexuality, and who therefore supported, as happened in most Western countries, changes in the law which meant that certain forms of homosexual behavior ceased to be unlawful.
...
"We were proved totally mistaken.

"Decriminalisation made it possible for homosexuals to organise openly into a powerful lobby, and it thus became a mere platform from which further demands were launched. Next followed demands for equality, in which homosexuality was officially placed on the same moral level as standard forms of sexuality, and dismissal of identified homosexuals from sensitive positions, for instance in schools, children’s homes, etc., became progressively more difficult. This was followed in turn by demands not merely for equality but privilege: the appointment, for instance, of homosexual quotas in local government, the excision from school textbooks and curricula, and university courses, passages or books or authors they found objectionable, special rights to proselytise, and not least the privilege of special programmes to put forward their views – including the elimination of the remaining legal constraints – on radio and television.
"Thus we began by attempting to right what was felt an ancient injustice and we ended up with a monster in our midst, powerful and clamouring, flexing its muscles, threatening, vengeful and vindictive towards anyone who challenges its outrageous claims, and bent on making fundamental – and to most of us horrifying – changes to civilised patterns of sexual behavior.
"Here indeed we have sexual politics in action. And, as with other alternatives to God, the result is not human happiness, but human misery. The homosexual community, as they now styled themselves, by their reckless promiscuity during the 1970s and 1980s, helped to spread among their members the fearful scourge of AIDS, a killer disease of a peculiarly horrible nature, for which there is no cure, and no immediate likelihood of a cure…." (The Quest for God: A Personal Pilgrimage, by Paul Johnson, pages 28-29)
Long before Johnson detailed the deleterious consequences of decriminalizing LGBT behaviors, thus allowing them full and free reign in the public square, the Bible provides another historical account, one which warns all of us about the militancy of homosexuality and homosexuals when they are permitted to identify with and engage in their perversion openly:
"[T]he men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. 6And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 8Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. 9And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door." (Genesis 19: 4-9)

The homosexuals had so overrun the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, that Lot, the only righteous man in the entire city, pleaded with the two angels who were visiting him, not to spend any time in the public square. He feared for their safety, because they would be preyed upon, sodomized, and very likely murdered. Notice also how Lot tries to placate the rabid homosexuals surrouding his home. He was willing to give up his own daughters to their own perverse sexual dictates. Not only did the sodomites reject Lot's offer, but they determined to "deal worse with" him. Lot tried to appease the homosexuals, and they responded by wanting to do him more harm!
I submit to you that because conservatives in general, and the pro-family movement in particular, has chosen the easier, softer approach of not confronting the whole LGBT agenda in its entirety, we are now facing the unprecedented immoral avalanche of Drag Queen Story Hour, Comprehensive Sexual Education, Homosexual Shame Parades, Satanic occult, and other detestable policy demands. The conservative, pro-family movement has sought to placate homosexuals repeatedly, from decriminalizing their perversion, to granting them civil unions, to allowing them gay marriage (in the United States and Taiwan, this immoral travesty was imposed by judicial fiat, not democratic exercise).
But the demands never ended. They want benefits, they want to adopt children. They want to be celebrated. As one homosexual activist had told me, quite pointedly and without reserve, in Hermosa Beach, CA: "You have to accept me. I will not accept 'tolerance!''"
Johnson his extended remarks in 1996. Fast forward to 2019, and let's consider what we are facing today from the LGBT lobby:

1. They demand that they can promote their deviant lifestyles in public libraries, at taxpayer expense, i.e. Drag Queen Story Hour
2. They demand the right to teach these perverse behaviors to children, with the parents' knowledge or consent, in government-run, taxpayer-funded schools.
3. Every time an individual in bondage to these perversions is held accountable for criminal or unethical conduct, they cry "victim" and expect to be exonerated. Consider the latest example of this with the exposure of now-resigning Congresswoman Katie Hill (D-Santa Clarita), whose numerous dalliances with men and women, all at taxpayer expense, were exposed to the public, and thus forced her resignation. In a final video statement informing the public of her resignation, she blames everyone but herself for the sad predicament she faces. No accountability whatsoever!
4. Not only are the LGBT ideologues lobbying other countries to repeal their anti-sodomy laws, but they want to sanction, fine, and imprison those who speak out against their destructive behaviors and deviant lifestyles. In their view, anyone, whether priest, parent, or professional, who condemns these unnatural acts should be driven from the public square, drained of all their resources, and deprived of their liberty.
5. The LGBT lobby has even gone to such lengths that they want their perverse behaviors recognized as civil rights, deserving of complete protection and government oversight at the expense of the rights of all. The Equality Act, HR 5, is full proof of this immoral tyranny, of this political madness all being forced on us under the guise of "tolerance, acceptance, and diversity."
The fight against the LGBT Agenda is real, and it's time to take it seriously. It is time for men and women of common sense and courage to stop treating this agenda with platitudes and niceties, and it's time to start calling out LGBT behaviors and the agenda as a whole. It's a tyrannical, unnatural perversion which should not be permitted in the public square. LGBT behaviors and ideas should not be celebrated, but denigrated, denounced, and dismissed from public welcome.
MassResistance, the pro-family organization that I serve as Organization Director, has been making the case for this hard-core, uncompromising approach since its inception in 1993. In order to fight against the LGBT Agenda, accommodation and compromise cannot be allowed. Homosexuality, transgenderism, and like sexual perversions are not identities, nor are they genetic behaviors. They are mental disorders, moral failings, "monsters in our midst" (to quote Paul Johnson) which must be rejected and treated with justice and sanction. It is not enough to say:
"You can have your sexual preferences, but let us have our individual liberty."

That approach has not worked, and it will never work. The LGBT agenda, the homosexual lobby is not interested in compromise and accommodation, or "live and let live." The whole agenda was never based on any concept of tolerance, but rather forced acceptance, i.e. tyranny. In fact, from the outset homosexual activists had announced that they wanted their behaviors to be regarded on par, in parity with normal and healthy sexual relations, i.e. singlehood or marriage of one man and one woman.

Based on history, based on biology, based on Biblical revelation and scientific truth, such demands cannot, should not be realized.
It's time to oppose with full conviction this whole LGBT agenda. It's time to stand for truth. To respond to my critics who declare that I should not be focused to intently on stopping the LGBT agenda, I retort: "On the contrary, it's time for us to start fighting, and fighting to win! We cannot afford to give one more inch. We cannot afford to lose any more ground."
In other words: It's time for MassResistance!


 It’s time for us to make a clear stance against homosexuality and for natural marriage, life, and family. It’s time to declare to a minuscule subset of the population that the vast majority of are not going to be content with being bullied into accepting, accommodation this perverse LGBT agenda.
We need to push homosexuality, transgenderism, and the like back into the proverbial closet. There is nothing wrong with sanction and recrimination, to the degree that these efforts serve to instructive the general public that such behaviors are wrong and should be discouraged. In no wise should the natural rights of anyone be abridged or abolished. But let us be clear: homosexuality, transgenderism, and other sexual paraphilias are not rights. They are behaviors, and our governments, our cultures, our moral expectations have every right to prohibit and sanction those behaviors.

We have no time to lose. It’s time for us to shake off our sense of shame-induced silence from the LGBT lobby and tell it like it is. LGBT is not OK, and we should have every right to see these behaviors, this agenda pushed out of the public square and sequestered from harming our children, our communities, our culture, and our country.
Decriminalization of homosexuality is leading to a criminalization of the natural order in our country and in nations around the world, and it's time for us to fight back.
