The Big Takeover?

I read a couple of alarming news articles today on - no surprise really, but it is still alarming. Neither is very long, so I have posted them here:

"With Brazil's government caving in to homosexual activism, many fear America is not far behind.

Brazilian activists have launched several lawsuits to silence Christian opposition of homosexuality, and a Christian author has been both censored and fined over comments in his book. Mat Barber, with
Liberty Counsel, believes America will likely follow suit. "It's really chilling, and people need to be aware that this is not a threat that is isolated to Brazil or Europe or Canada," he contends. "It's coming to our shores (America) as well." reports the Brazilian Association of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, and Transgender People (ABGLT) filed a criminal complaint against several websites for exposing their societal leader Luiz Mott's promotion of pedophilia and other illegal sexual acts. Barber explains he has witnessed homosexuals seeking to legally silence Christians and notes similar governmental legislation will be reviewed in Washington in January. "Hate crimes legislation, the Employment Non-discrimination act -- legislation that under a President Barack Obama and with liberals in control of the House and the Senate, we can expect to see passed," he says. Barber cites Colorado as an example that some states already have similar laws in place. "Governor Ritter signed into law a bill that says it is essentially illegal to write anything that's homophobic," he adds. "So based on that law in Colorado now, to actually publish the Bible would be considered a violation of the law."

And the second:

President-elect Barack Obama is moving swiftly to appoint homosexual activists to positions within his administration. reports that 10 national homosexual organizations are working with the Obama transition team to get more openly homosexual people appointed to the incoming administration. Obama's transition team has also reportedly named at least seven openly homosexual people to transition panels assigned to review federal departments and agencies. Three of the seven homosexuals on transition panels have held high-level positions in the Clinton administration.

Matt Barber, director of cultural affairs with Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action, says Obama is keeping his promises to the homosexual lobby. Obama throughout the campaign signaled…very quietly, but nonetheless signaled on his web page and elsewhere that he essentially had signed off on every major demand of homosexual pressure groups," he said. "So it's not surprising that he has now allowed some of these radical activists to become part of his administration."

According to the Washington Blade, Obama officials also named President Bush's former ambassador to Romania, Michael Guest, to a transition panel assigned to review issues pertaining to the State Department.
