San Francisco, California – Rob Bell, author of the best-selling and controversial book Love Wins, which challenges the Christian teaching of Hell, came out in support of homosexual marriage on Sunday and called “narrow” Christians to repentance.
According to reports, Bell was speaking at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco [home of atonement denier, Alan Jones] and delivered a message based on his new book What We Talk About When We Talk About God.
During the question and answer period, Bell was asked about his beliefs regarding same-sex “marriage.”
“I am for marriage. I am for fidelity. I am for love, whether it’s a man and woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man,” he said. “I think the ship has sailed and I think the church needs — I think this is the world we are living in and we need to affirm people wherever they are.” Click here to continue reading.
UK Elementary Teacher Facing Disciplinary Action For Refusal to Read ‘Gay’ Penguins Book to Children
London, England – An elementary school teacher in London is facing disciplinary action after she refused to read a book to her class about gay penguins.
The teacher, who is only going by “Mrs. A” in the media in order to protect her identity and her job, had begun to read And Tango Makes Three to her class when she realized that it was a book meant to promote homosexual “marriage.”
According to reports, the book, written by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson and illustrated by Henry Cole, is a true story about a pair of Chinstrap penguins named Roy and Silo who live in New York’s Central Park Zoo. In the story, Roy and Silo are seen bowing to each other and being friendly, and soon make a nest together as they attempt to hatch a rock that resembles an egg. Click here to continue reading.

After being sued late last year by the American Civil Liberties Union to put the book In Our Mothers’ House back on the library shelves of Utah public elementary schools, the Davis School District caved in to the legal pressure and settled with the homosexual advocacy group to make the book readily available to young students in the school.
District attorneys agreed to put the controversial book back on the shelves despite parents’ objections, not to mention a state statute prohibiting instructional materials containing “advocacy of homosexuality.” Shortly after conceding last month, this agreement was put into action, as Assistant Superintendent Pamela Park sent the order for elementary school librarians to place the controversial book back on the shelves in several district libraries.

A Gresham, Ore., baker is now facing fire and praise from both advocates and opponents of same-sex relationships, and an investigation from the Oregon Attorney General’s Office after he refused to make a cake for a lesbian wedding citing his Christian faith . . .
“I apologized for wasting their time and said we don’t do same-sex marriages,” Klein told KATU in an on-camera interview. “(I)honestly did not mean to hurt anybody, didn’t mean to make anybody upset, (it’s) just something I believe in very strongly,” he said. . . .
The Oregon Equality Act of 2007 prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, which covers businesses such as Klein’s. But the baker told KATU that he also has a right under the First Amendment to practice his faith. Click here to read more.
LTRP Note: Less than a year after the “Boy Scouts reaffirm ban on homosexuals despite relentless protest campaigns,” the organization will be deciding soon on whether to lift that ban. In the video below, the President of the United States says that homosexuals should be able to have access to Boy Scouts and to every walk of life. Today, the pressure is on the Boy Scouts; soon in the future, pressure will be on non-profit 501 (c)3 churches who will be “encouraged” to allow homosexuals access to lead their pulpits (whether the churches want it or not).

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Sunday encouraged the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay members and leaders, days before the group is expected to vote on the controversial and long-standing rule.
In an interview with CBS, anchor Scott Pelley asked the president if he believed scouting should be open to gays.
“Yes,” Obama said simply.
Asked to elaborate, Obama – who last year said he supports the right of same-sex couples to marry – said gays and lesbians should be able to participate in “every institution” that others can.
“My attitude is … that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does, in every institution and walk of life,” he said. Click here to continue reading.
November 2012: UPS Says No to Boy Scouts, Yes to Gay Groups

Toy makers are being pressured by a Swedish advertising watchdog group to produce gender-neutral Christmas toy catalogs.
Sweden might be known for its safe family-friendly Volvo cars, but its Christmas toy ads are anything but family-friendly ─ by conservative standards. One of the most socially liberal nations on the planet now mandates gender confusion in ads geared toward youth.
If you’re a parent looking to audition your son for a toy ad in Sweden, he’ll be more likely to be holding a Barbie or hairdryer than a G.I. Joe or toy gun. And girls will be better off posing with toy assault rifles than Easy-bake Ovens to get a spot.
This politically correct casting is done in the name of gender-neutral advertising.
And who is producing this new role playing? None other than Sweden’s advertising regulatory body. Click here to continue reading.

Pro-Abortion President Barack Obama Defeats Mitt Romney: (LifeNews) — In a disappointing night for pro-life advocates, pro-abortion President Barack Obama defeated pro-life candidate Mitt Romney in the race for president.
