Is Tolerance Trumping Religious Freedom?

Radical homosexual activists have no qualms about forcing people of faith to violate their religious beliefs

(Scottsdale, AZ) Many Christians don't realize they are capitulating to pro-gay lobbyists and legislators by remaining ambivalent about stealth laws and legislation that are anti-family. These new laws range from diversity training to anti-bias policies in schools, the workplace and in private institutions.

Alan Sears and Craig Osten outline gay community's well-thought out strategy to transform American's perception not only with homosexuality, but of those who oppose homosexual behavior. Sears is President, CEO and general counsel of the Alliance Defense Fund, an organization dedicated to the defense of religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and family values. Osten serves as voce-president for the Alliance Defense Fund. Together, they are the authors of The Homosexual Agenda: Exposing the Principal Threat to Religious Freedom Today (Broadman and Holman).

"The homosexual agenda touches every area of our lives, from the media to education to families to corporate America and to government," say Sears and Osten. "We document how the religious freedoms of all Americans are under attack from radical homosexual activists." The authors describe the strategy gay activists are using to change America's perceptions toward homosexual behavior - offering six specific areas where this approach is playing out in present-day culture.

"Talking about the behavior as often as possible, along with portraying homosexuals as victims, and providing people with 'just cause' related to the movement, is an integral part of their strategy" say Sears and Osten. This includes showing homosexuals in a positive light while making those who do not agree with their behavior look bad. They have also solicited the assistance of corporate America and major foundations to support their cause. "The campaign has been relentless and many of the gains made by the homosexual activists to promote their agenda have come at the expense of religious freedom," argue the authors.
