Lies, seduction, and criminal activity: pro-family group exposes homosexual ‘Out in Schools’ program

VANCOUVER, BC, September 19, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A national organization located in British Columbia is seeking to expose what they argue are the lies, seduction, and criminal activity at the heart of the homosexual agenda being pushed on students in Canadian schools.

“I believe parents will be shocked and righteously angry when they find out what their children have been subjected to. I hope parents sue their local school boards!” said Kari Simpson, President of Culture Guard, an organization that seeks to safeguard community values such as the natural family, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.

The Lies

Simpson uncovered what she says was only the tip of the iceberg of the strategy to indoctrinate kids into what she calls the “homosexist sex-activism culture” when she came across Out in Schools (OIS). The program targets students aged 13-18 years and aims to bring “queer films” to local schools to “facilitate discussion with youth on bullying, homophobia and stereotypes” and to provide a “safe space to explore these issues.”

Out in Schools touts itself as an “outreach initiative” that “harnesses the powerful medium of film and video to engage youth and educators on issues related to homophobia and violence.” The initiative works towards “the promotion of safer and more diverse communities, free from discrimination and bullying.”

But the truth behind the OIS initiative, said Simpson to LifeSiteNews.com, is far more sinister than one might suspect at first.

Pointing to the pictures of “guys kissing” in an OIS film presentation, Simpson argues that the program is not about making schools safe, but about desensitizing children to the acceptance and ultimately to the practice of the homosexual lifestyle.

“This is moving from desensitization, to acceptance, to practice.”

Simpson told LSN that if this initiative were in fact an anti-bully program, its success would be gauged by a reduction in name-calling and other related problems in the school. Instead, she pointed out, OIS measures the impact of their program by one thing: visibility.

OIS Director of Education Ross Johnstone told The Dependent that the program “measures our impact by the visibility of queer resources and issues at schools.”

“We want teachers to include historically significant LGBT events in their curriculum. Make available to teachers and students useful queer resources to help deal with their problems. Have anti-bullying posters on the walls and create friendly and inclusive spaces.”

Simpson told LSN that OIS is marketed to school boards, parents and students as an “anti-bullying” program, but that this is nothing but a “false representation of the product and the intent of the program.”

The Seduction

Simpson’s major concern about the OIS program is that it lures children into the “life of sex activism” under the guise of promoting health and safety with a Public Service Announcement (PSA) competition. PSAs are short messages for radio or television intended to effect change in public attitudes and behaviours.

OIS makes it clear on their website that the goal of the Annual Anti-Homophobia Youth PSA competition is to change people’s attitudes towards homosexuality. “Submissions should have an anti-homophobia message and promote safer schools, free from bullying and homophobia.” Youths are promised that the winning film will premiere on the big screen at the Annual Vancouver Queer Film Festival (QFF).

“They want the kids to be mini filmmakers,” says Simpson, adding that the promise to win a public screening is a “your-name-up-in-lights kind of psychology.”

The winners of the student competition along with their friends are invited to the under-25 Fierce & Fabulous Party, co-presented by the Vancouver QFF, where the winning Anti-Homophobia PSA films are showcased. The party that took place this past August exhibited sexually provocative art and displayed advertisements for sexual products and services. The youth participated in games such as Lesbian Debauchery—described by its creators as a silly, dirty drinking game—and The Queeriodic Table, a game that explains homosexual slang with graphic pornographic definitions.

Simpson is concerned that once the children are “lured” into making homosexual propaganda films with the promise of a public screening at the QFF, then they will “get curious about the films on that site because their Fierce & Fabulous party information is there.”

“This is a strategic grooming practice of these kids,” said Simpson. “They are lured into these parties to be seduced into the life of sex-activism.”

Criminal Activity

Simpson showed LSN how what she called a “seemingly benign” website for the OIS program has links to the QFF website. But last Tuesday, Simpson filed a complaint with the Vancouver Police Department alleging that the Vancouver School Board, along with OIS and the QFF, exposed individuals, some under the age of 18, to pornographic obscene material that contravened sections of the Criminal Code.

In the complaint, Simpson mentioned the film “The Life and Death of a Porno Gang” that is promoted on the QFF website, which is accessible through a link on the OIS website. Children following the chain of links from the school-approved OIS program to the movie’s preview would be exposed to explicit homosexual sex acts, bestiality, horrific violence, murder, and necrophilia.

“Certainly there is intellectual sexual assault going on here,” said Simpson.

While detractors have accused Simpson of homophobia and gay-bashing, she says that they are missing the point by a mile.

“Politics, fraud, and child endangerment are the problems here,” said Simpson, who had RCMP officers in her home this weekend due to death threats she received from homosexual activists.

Simpson says she would like to see OIS go back to the drawing board, and that she would like to see parental involvement in determining appropriate programs in schools to address bullying.

“Schools need effective anti-bullying programs, but not those that exclude all but one special interest group and have built-in political agendas.”

Simpson is still waiting for the RCMP to address her formal complaint that was submitted last Tuesday. In the meantime, she and her organization have put together two videos that expose what she calls the “homosexist and pornographic” nature of the OIS program. (Warning: extremely graphic content, including violence and nudity. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.)

OIS is funded in part by Telus, Toronto Dominion bank, Out On Screen, and other private and public corporation and foundations.

Blogs,

Please, enough with the cult of pop stars. Our kids need real heroes.

Jonathon van Maren Jonathon van Maren Follow Jonathon

April 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Two things happen each time a significant pop culture figure dies: Christians attempt to dredge up some moderately conservative or traditional thing that figure said at some point during his long career, and mainstream media attempts to convince a society thoroughly bored with such things that the person in question was a ground-breaking radical. The two most recent examples are the androgynous David Bowie—a cringe-worthy and possibly blasphemous video of him dropping to his knees during a rock performance and uttering the Lord’s Prayer circulated just following his death--and the pop star Prince.

I’ve had to suppress my gag reflexes many times as I saw my Facebook newsfeed fill up with memes sporting quotes from Prince about his faith and articles announcing that the musician who “embraced gender fluidity before his time,” according to Slate and “will always be a gay icon” according to The Atlantic, was against gay marriage. Sure, maybe he was. But only a Christian community so shell-shocked by the rapid spread of the rainbow blitzkrieg and the catastrophic erosion of religious liberty would find this remarkable. After all, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton said the same thing barely one election cycle ago. As one obituary celebrating Prince’s paradigm-smashing sexual performances written by Dodai Stewart put it:

Dig, if you will, a picture: The year is 1980. Many states still have sodomy laws. The radio is playing feel-good ear candy like Captain and Tennille and KC and the Sunshine Band. TV hits include the sunny, toothy blond shows Three’s Company and Happy Days. There’s no real word for “gender non-conforming.” But here’s what you see: A man. Clearly a man. Hairy, mostly naked body…a satiny bikini bottom. But those eyes. Rimmed in black, like a fantasy belly dancer. The full, pouty lips of a pin-up girl. Long hair. A tiny, svelte thing. Ethnically ambiguous, radiating lust. What is this? A man. Clearly a man. No. Not just a man. A Prince.

Right. So let’s not get too carried away, shall we? I know Christians are desperate to justify their addictions to the pop culture trash that did so much to sweep away Christian values in the first place and I know that latching on to the occasional stray conservative belief that may manifest itself in pop culture figures makes many feel as if perhaps we are not so weird and countercultural, but this bad habit we have of claiming these figures upon their passing is downright damaging.

After all, parents should be teaching their children about real heroes, titans of the faith who changed the world. Heroes of the early church who stood down tyrants, halted gladiatorial combat, and crusaded against injustice in a world where death was all the rage. These men and women were real rebels who stood for real values. If we want to point our children to people they should emulate, we should be handing them books like Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness by the brilliant writer Eric Metaxas rather than the pop albums Purple Rain or Lovesexy by Prince. If parents spend their time glorifying the predecessors of Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus instead of highlighting heroes like William Wilberforce, they can hardly be surprised when their children choose to emulate the former rather than the latter.

The mainstream media’s adulation of these pop stars is equally irritating. The unspoken truth of these obituaries is that the flamboyant antics of Prince and the rest of the so-called rebellious drag queens populating the rock n’ roll scene have been mainstream for a long time already. Want to see dozens of bizarre body piercings? Weird hairdos? Purple mohawks? Dudes with nail polish? Strange tattoos? Easy. Just go onto any university campus, or any public high school without a dress code. With headphones wedged firmly in their ear canals, they can pump the cleverly commercialized “counterculture” straight into their skulls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

More than that, some of these courageous rebels have actually sued their employers to ensure that they can let their establishment-smashing freak flag fly at work, too. An Edmonton woman with 22 visible body piercings complained that her employer was unfair because apparently she was being discriminated against “based on body modifications.” Yeah! The Man must be told, after all. And if he doesn’t agree, we will lawyer up. I wonder what the shrieking rebels of the early days would think about the snivelling children of the current grievance culture.

So these days, the media’s eulogizing about aging culture warriors who went mainstream a long time ago rings a bit hollow. After all, most rock n’ roll stars these days look tame compared to what shows up in the children’s section at Pride Week. Freaky is normal now. Normal is radical. Welcome to 2016.

When Christians are posting nostalgic tributes to the rebels who helped inoculate their children against the radical views of Christianity in the first place, you know that the victories of the counterculture are complete and Stockholm syndrome has set in.

Target boycott climbs to over 1 million

Claire Chretien Claire Chretien

April 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Over 1 million people have signed a pledge to boycott Target over its new policy allowing men to access women’s bathrooms. 

The American Family Association’s Boycott Target petition gained traction immediately, reaching the one million mark in only nine days.

“Corporate America must stop bullying people who disagree with the radical left agenda to remake society into their progressive image,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “#BoycottTarget has resonated with Americans.  Target’s harmful policy poses a danger to women and children; nearly everyone has a mother, wife, daughter or friend who is put in jeopardy by this policy.  Predators and voyeurs would take advantage of the policy to prey on those who are vulnerable.  And it’s clear now that over one million customers agree.”

Target defended its policy in a statement saying that it believes everyone “deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally” and earlier this week, a Target spokeswoman defended the policy as “inclusive.” 

The AFA said that unisex bathrooms are a common-sense alternative to allowing men unfettered access to women’s bathrooms.

“Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex option should be provided,” the petition says. 

The AFA warned that Target’s new policy benefits sexual predators and poses a danger to women and children. 

“With Target publicly boasting that men can enter women's bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?” the petition asked. 

There have been numerous instances of predatory men accessing women’s bathrooms and intimate facilities in the wake of “transgender” bathroom policies allowing them to do so. 

“We want to make it very clear that AFA does not believe the transgender community poses this danger to the wider public,” said Wildmon. “Rather, this misguided and reckless policy provides a possible gateway for predators who are out there.”

Amazing new video captures the flash of light the moment life begins

Ben Johnson Ben Johnson Follow Ben

CHICAGO, April 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Life begins with a spark – literally.

Researchers at Northwestern University have documented the striking event in a new video that accompanies a study published this week.

At the moment of conception, the egg releases massive amounts of zinc, which creates a spark that can be seen with the aid of a microscope.

“It was remarkable,” said Teresa Woodruff, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University's medical school. “To see the zinc radiate out in a burst from each human egg was breathtaking.”

The research team had noted the zinc sparks before in mice eggs but had never observed the process in human beings.

“All of biology starts at the time of fertilization,” Woodruff said, “yet we know next to nothing about the events that occur in the human.”

One of the researchers, Northwestern chemistry professor Thomas O'Halloran, explained the science behind the process in 2014.

“The egg first has to stockpile zinc and then must release some of the zinc to successfully navigate maturation, fertilization and the start of embryogenesis,” he said. “On cue, at the time of fertilization, we see the egg release thousands of packages, each dumping a million zinc atoms, and then it's quiet.”

“Each egg has four or five of these periodic sparks,” O'Halloran said. “It is beautiful to see, orchestrated much like a symphony.”

Since the amount of zinc in an egg correlates with successful implantation and birth, the Northwestern researchers are highlighting that their research may be used to assist in vitro fertilization.

But that raises concerns given the grave moral issues with IVF, which involves creating numerous embryos that are either killed or frozen. Moral theologians also emphasize that IVF is an injustice even for the children who are born as a result, as they are created in a lab rather than in the union of man and woman.

The study may have far-reaching consequences the research team did not intend, such as strengthening public belief in the longstanding scientific consensus that life begins at the moment of conception/fertilization.

Many of those who saw the Northwestern video said it testifies to the beauty of life and the shallow lies that buttress the argument of abortion-on-demand.

“I saw this, and I was blown away by it,” said Rush Limbaugh on his nationally syndicated radio program Thursday afternoon. “For anybody in the mainstream media to openly admit that life begins at conception” defies arguments that an unborn child is only “tissue mass.”

Researchers released a separate video of the zinc spark taking place in a mammalian egg more than a year ago:

The paper, which is entitled “The Zinc Spark is an Inorganic Signature of Human Egg Activation,” was published by Scientific Reports on April 26.
