Former State Senator Has Questions Regarding Ethics Bill

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 11, 2008

A letter regarding the North Carolina General Assembly’s ability to police itself in ethics investigations has been posted on WNC Citizens Blog.

The letter writer brings up some good points, especially about past unethical behavior, and I provided the links in the letter to provide evidence of the letter writer’s varacity.

The key system has been used by the Democratic Party for over thirty years, and it is still in place.

NC General Assembly Moves To Block State Auditor

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 8, 2008

The NC General Assembly, tired of having a Republican who might expose the unethical activities of legislators, is pushing forward legislation that will limit the state auditor’s investigative authority. I blogged about it on WNC Citizens Blog.

The Homosexual Agenda: Indoctrinating Your Children

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 14, 2007

The Carolina Stompers have recently raised awareness to a piece of legislation in the North Carolina General Assembly with the seemingly innocuous title of “”.

I posted about it yesterday, and one of the bloggers over at Scrutiny Hooligans, Gordon Smith, engaged me in a discussion yesterday. He has even posted about it himself.

Today’s article will pull back the curtain to allow you to see what exactly is going on here, and it most certainly is not an attempt to obtain “equal rights.”

The following is taken from a book review:

Another target of the homosexuals is the public schools. “According to the National Education Association and its allies, children must be taught that sexual orientation is fluid (which is an interesting contradiction since homosexual activists are intent on proving a genetic link to their behavior), that only ‘intolerant religions’ do not affirm homosexual behavior, and that once you are entrapped in homosexual behavior, there is no escape. No dissenting views are permitted. Thus, the gospel is silenced, parental values are undermined, and an impressionable child is doomed to engage in behavior that will often result in his or her eventual self-destruction.” (p. 51) As Newsweek writer, David Gelman, puts it, “At high schools around the country, multiculturalism has begun to embrace multisexualism…more students seem to be coming out, and they’re coming out younger.” (p. 50)

“The indoctrination that takes place in our public schools has definitely had an effect in shaping teens’ attitudes toward homosexual behavior. In 2001, Zogby International released a poll that found that 85 percent of high school seniors thought homosexual men and lesbians should be accepted by society…….two-thirds thought same-sex marriage should be allowed. Even 80 percent of evangelical Christian students supported hate-crimes legislation, which in its many proposed forms, will be used to silence religious speech about homosexual behavior.” (p. 67)

Universities are now actively recruiting homosexuals, in some cases “tailoring their student housing policies to support homosexual behavior and preferences.” (p. 76) At the same time, Steve Hayner, former president of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship reports, “We have had more challenges to our basic right to exist on campus settings during the past two years than in the previous fifty-five combined. It’s not just us—this is hitting Catholics and Muslims and others. What we are seeing is a growing challenge to religious free speech.” (p. 72) “While people of faith find themselves forced to put up with behavior that offends them, those who practice homosexual behavior are catered to, at the expense of everyone else.” (p. 77)

“Lately homosexual behavior on college campuses is taking a dangerous new turn – the promotion of sexual relations between adults and children, known as pedophilia.” (p. 83) U.S. News and World Report columnist John Leo noted that he had “seen a trend toward the promotion of pedophilia among academics as early as 1981.” (p. 85) Professor Harris Mirkin of the University of Missouri-Kansas City published a study (funded with taxpayer money) that compared the ‘moral panic’ about pedophilia to previous ‘panics’ about feminism and homosexuality.” Sheldon Steinbach of the American Council on Education adds his comment, “Today’s heresy often becomes tomorrow’s orthodoxy.” (p. 85) “This statement is extremely chilling but also very true. Just as homosexual behavior has now become accepted orthodoxy on many university campuses and Christians and Orthodox Jews have become the heretics, we are going down the same road with pedophilia. As the homosexual agenda continues to sexualize our culture, other once-forbidden behaviors are exalted as just more alternative lifestyles. The result is that the well-being of millions of children is at risk, along with the right of parents to protect their children from sexual exploitation.” (p. 86)

Taken from an article on The Intellectual Conservative that reviews the book, The Homosexual Agenda: Exposing The Principal Threat To Religious Freedom Today.

Consider purchasing the book to arm yourself with information that you can use to combat these attempts to indoctrinate your children in public schools.

The reviewers end their article with the very eloquent following statement:

The authors state, “Many Christians are unaware of the threats posed to their religious freedoms. Because of this, either because of ignorance or laziness, sadly, many Christians will come to realize the famous lament of the German pastor, Martin Niemoeller, is true for them as well: ‘First they came for the Jews, but I did nothing because I am not a Jew. Then they came for the socialists, but I did nothing because I am not a socialist. Then they came for the Catholics, but I did nothing because I am not a Catholic. Finally, they came for me, but by then there was no one left to help me.” (p. 204) This book is an excellent read if you want to see clearly the chilling path where the homosexual movement is really taking us.

Carolina Stompers Take On Sexual Discrimination Bill

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 12, 2007

Fasten your seat belts people, this one could get a little rough!

From the Carolina Stompers website:

What people do in the privacy of their own bedroom is their business.
But to push your sex life on others is wrong. Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender groups like Equality NC and Faith in America are doing just that. Their sales pitch is civil rights. Slavery, segregation, and denying women the right to vote was wrong and Americans have come
a long way since those days. But is the way you have sex a civil right?

Six months ago my wife and I sent an e-mail to my step father,
Democrat NC Senator Martin Nesbitt. We asked why he is sponsoring
Senate Bill 1534: Non-Discrimination in State Employment
This bill would protect state workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.

“Gender identity or expression.” What does that mean? That means Martin Nesbitt is sponsoring a bill that would allow transsexuals or transvestites to teach his grandchildren and your children in drag in the public school classrooms. Teachers are state employees and in an area where weird homosexual castrations and the gay lifestyle is on the rise, this will happen if this bill is passed and there is nothing you or there employer can do about it.

You’ve read what the Stompers have had to say, now what does the other side say?

From the Equality North Carolina Website:

This bill would protect state employees from discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation, broadly defined to include gender identity or expression. It amends the State Personnel Act by adding sexual orientation to the list of protected classes for discrimination in hiring; denial of promotion, transfer or training; retaliatory demotion, reduction in force or termination; and harassment. Equality NC secured introduction of this bill by Sen. Charlie Albertson (D-Duplin) and 19 co-sponsors. This is the largest list of senators sponsoring pro-LGBT legislation in North Carolina history.

Commentary

Like the Carolina Stompers, I have a problem with the phrase “This bill would protect state employees from discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation, broadly defined to include gender identity or expression.

So, this bill, if passed, could result in your children being taught by someone in in drag because of the “civil right” of sexual expression. Tell me this isn’t so.

The U.S. Supreme Court has laid down three requirements for a group to receive protected status:

  1. a shared immutable characteristic;
  2. economic deprivation; and
  3. a history of political powerlessness.

I think we can all agree that the subjects of this legislation do not share these characteristics.

More details: Special Rights for Homosexuals

This is all part of a Progressive Agenda that includes dividing people based upon a Group Identity Politics, that threatens to undermine the very things America was founded upon.

Don’t let this happen. Call your state representative and ask that they not support the creation of a new special class of separate, but equal people.

Democrat Leaders in NC House Force Irresponsible"Sexuality"-Education Bill Through Health Committee!

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 6, 2007

In a stunning and very public abuse of power during Tuesday’s committee meeting, the Democrat leadership (Ray Rapp, Madison Co. and Bob England, Rutherford Co.) not only refused to hear testimony from anyone who opposed the Sex-Ed bill (H879), they didn’t even allow a formal vote to be taken! “Why not?” you ask? Read what the bills author, Rep. Susan Fisher (D) of Buncombe County told the Charlotte Observer after the fiasco took place:


Fisher acknowledged after the hearing that the bill may not have had the votes to pass the committee, and moving it ahead may give time for support to grow.
“I am not a gambler,” she said. “We want to give people a chance to think about what they heard and see if it makes any difference down the road.” (you can read the article here)
