Hollywood Now Opening Arms to Gay Characters, Families - USA Today
When it comes to gay marriage and gay families, politicians are still bickering and courts are still deliberating. But in entertainment, it's all over but the shouting. Hollywood, which once routinely depicted gay people as miserable, dysfunctional or tragic, now produces movies and TV shows - such as this summer's film The Kids Are All Right, ABC's Modern Family and Fox's Glee - in which gay relationships and gay families are portrayed as just like other families - normal, unremarkable, no big deal.
Such movies and TV shows "desensitize the public to the raft of problems associated with homosexual behavior," says Bryan Fischer, director of issue analysis for the American Family Association. It's a distortion of reality.

Liberal Radio Host Asks Christian Conservative: 'How Many More Children Will Have to Die Before You Guys Back Off?'
Focus on the Family has a new "True Tolerance" campaign focused on stopping school bullying—against everyone—but without programs that promote moral acceptance of homosexuality. FOTF's Candi Cushman appeared on CNN this week to debate this, but Anderson Cooper wasn't half as rough as Hartmann on Thursday afternoon. He mentioned that gay teens are much more likely to attempt suicide than straight teens and then just asked Cushman, point blank: "How many more children will have to die before you guys back off?" This, in itself, is a form of bullying. You must accept left-wing lesson plans formulated by Obama "safe schools" czar Kevin Jennings and his group GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) or you favor gay teen suicide.
Homosexuality: A Special Call to the Love of God and Man by Dr. Jeff Mirus
Homosexual persons, by the very nature of their particular cross, must raise chastity to a special height, dealing not only with physical temptation but with the broad range of their own human affectivity. It follows that those who must suffer this disorder throughout their lives have been chosen by God to give a particular and exalted witness to the virtue of chastity. This is vocation as beautiful as it is arduous, and it is doubtful that its importance to our sex-saturated age can be overestimated. The homosexual is called to be a special and extraordinary witness to the triumph of love over feeling.

New gay Army - Top general calls Christian soldiers 'bigots'
"Unfortunately, we have a minority of service members who are still racists and bigoted and you will never be able to get rid of all of them," Lt. Gen. Bostick said. "But these people opposing this new policy will need to get with the program, and if they can't, they need to get out. No matter how much training and education of those in opposition, you're always going to have those that oppose this on moral and religious grounds just like you still have racists today."

GOP mole undermining defense of marriage - Maggie Gallagher
A traditional marriage advocacy organization is concerned about what former Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Ken Mehlman is doing to undermine traditional marriage, now that he has admitted he is a homosexual. Says Mehlman is part of a larger group of elitist Republicans who want to support efforts to make homosexual "marriage" legal throughout the land. "We're going to have to fight him, and we're going to win because 80 percent of Republicans support marriage as a union of husband and wife,"

"If it gets out that they downgraded GOProud, the homosexual activists will chastise them. If they continue to accept GOProud, the pro-family activists will be angry. They just want the issue to go away; they want to be as neutral as possible. But we're not going to let them."
