FLINT JOURNAL — Pickell to defend arrests in park

Please join us in sending a message of thanks to Sheriff Pickell:



“(Genesee County Sheriff Robert) Pickell got support for his arrests Monday from the American Family Association of Michigan…(which) said the 345-acre county park has become notorious as a meeting place for gay men and is listed on a gay sex Web site. …’Sheriff Pickell needs to hear from the families in Genesee County,’ said AFA-Michigan President Gary Glenn.

…The park’s notoriety frustrated parents involved with Richfield Park BMX, the nonprofit organization that runs a motocross track in the park. ‘How many people are going to want to bring their boys there racing when they hear something like this?’ said Toni Mitts, president of the group. ‘We see a lot of weird stuff,’ said Mitts, who said she’s seen men meet and enter restrooms together, meet and leave in a single car and approach other men. ‘I tell the kids, “Do not go into those woods,”‘ she said.”

Homosexual Pedophiles are Vastly Overrepresented in Child Sex Abuse Cases

Homosexual pedophiles sexually molest children at a far greater rate compared to the percentage of homosexuals in the general population.

  • A study in the Journal of Sex Research found, as we have noted above, that “approximately one-third of [child sex offenders] had victimized boys and two-thirds had victimized girls.â€? The authors then make a prescient observation: “Interestingly, this ratio differs substantially from the ratio of gynephiles (men who erotically prefer physically mature females) to androphiles (men who erotically prefer physically mature males), which is at least 20 to 1.â€?

David vs. Goliath: Family groups challenge Big Labor support for homosexual "marriage"

AFL-CIO urged to rescind resolution at July convention

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A broad coalition of religious and family values organizations this week went toe to toe with Big Labor, demanding in a letter to national AFL-CIO President John Sweeney that union officials rescind an unreported AFL-CIO executive committee resolution opposing federal and state constitutional amendments to define marriage as only between one man and one woman.

PERSECUTION — Limbaugh cites AFA-Michigan stands

How Liberals are Waging War Against Christianity

by David Limbaugh

Chapter Seven: “Muzzling Public
Officials, Employees, and Appointees”
Congressional, State, and Local Chaplains, page 182

In Ferndale, Michigan, a volunteer chaplain, Pastor Tom Hansen, came under attack because he was an outspoken critic of the homosexual lifestyle. He argued against the city’s plans for a downtown gay pride festival, and at council meetings reportedly called homosexuality “an abomination to the Lord.” But Hansen denied that opposing homosexuals was the focus of his ministry…(and) said his opinions on homosexuality never came up in his work with prisoners. …Nevertheless, homosexual groups demanded that the city terminate Hansen, and…charged that Hansen’s views amounted to “spiritual violence” to homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgender persons. Ferndale police captain Tim Collins said that Hansen had not expressed “any discrimination of any type to anyone.” The American Family Association said that it would sue the city in a civil rights action if it dismissed Hansen, and Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, said that being chaplain doesn’t mean you forfeit your constitutional rights. “I can’t help but marvel at the reported sight Monday night when the so-called ‘tolerance’ and ‘non-discrimination’ crowd so clearly demonstrated their intolerance for Pastor Hansen’s sincerely held religious views, and demanded that he be discriminated against and fired for daring to express those views.”

Chapter Nine: “State Endorsement of Non-Christian Values”
Diversity Sticker, page 244

In some cases, local governments affirmatively endorse the homosexual lifestyle and try to impose acceptance of it forcibly on their employees. Traverse City, Michigan, inaugurated a “diversity” sticker campaign in which it placed on city vehicles stickers that were modeled after the rainbow flag homosexuals use to celebrate their lifestyle. Over the rainbow stripes was the message, “We are Traverse City.” The campaign was ostensibly in reaction to a number of race- and sexual orientation-motivated crimes and was aimed at unifying the city. It did the opposite, as citizens bombarded the city with complaints over the campaign. American Family Association (of Michigan) President Gary Glenn said, “Homosexual activists’ allies on the city commission have quickly moved from preaching tolerance of homosexual activity to forcing city police officers to display the official flag of ‘gay pride’ militants.” One Traverse City policeman, David Leach, a thirty-year veteran, registered his strenuous objection to the campaign during an interview with a local Christian radio station. He said he found it “offensive driving a vehicle proclaiming (the homosexual) lifestyle.” He later told the Associated Press, “It is a sign of the homosexual, and it’s on my patrol car.”

Special U-M grad ceremonies irk some

“Gary Glenn, president of the Midland-based American Family Association (of Michigan), criticized the Lavender Graduation, the celebration for gay students, calling it ‘inappropriate.’ Glenn was an active supporter of Proposal 2, which was approved by Michigan voters in November to define marriage in the state Constitution as the union of only a man and a woman. ‘For anyone who is truly concerned about the personal health and well-being of young people, it should be considered extremely inappropriate for the university to take any action that encourages or validates or enables sexual behavior that poses such a dramatic risk to the health and even the lives of college students,’ Glenn said.”

LANSING STATE JOURNAL — Cox's opinion restricts same-sex benefits

“Local governments and the state can’t give benefits to employees’ same-sex partners now that voters have approved a constitutional ban on gay marriage, the state’s attorney general said Wednesday. …Gary Glenn of the American Family Association of Michigan was pleased with (Attorney General Mike) Cox’s opinion. ‘The chief law enforcement officer is now officially on record that a public employer cannot formally recognize and treat homosexual relationships among its employees as being similar or equal to marriage,’ he said.”

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Future of same-sex benefits hinges on six words

“The state attorney general issued a legal opinion last month saying government entities cannot offer same-sex benefits in future contracts because it would violate Michigan’s constitutional gay marriage ban known as Proposal 2. …Proposal 2 backers say the attorney general’s opinion validated what they said both before and after the election. ‘Public employees involved in homosexual relationships can certainly receive benefits if they are part of a broader benefits offering,’ said Gary Glenn, president of the Midland-based American Family Association of Michigan. ‘What public employers cannot do is single out only employees involved in homosexual relationships for special treatment as if their relationship is equal or similar to marriage.'”

NY TIMES — Gays file suit after Michigan denies benefits

“‘Our belief is that it’s only appropriate that marriage between one man and one woman be given special recognition, special incentives and special protection under the law,’ said Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, a spearhead of the (Marriage Protection A)mendment’s passage. …The key issue, before and after the election, was defining marriage, he said. …’The point is recognition of what constitutes marriage,’ Mr. Glenn said, ‘not who gets benefits.'”

KALAMAZOO GAZETTE: City under fire over same-sex benefits plan

“Gary Glenn, (president) of the American Family Association of Michigan, said, ‘We would encourage Kalamazoo city officials to honor the constitution of our state and the vote of the people of Michigan in November. Taxpayers in Kalamazoo should not be compelled to subsidize homosexual relationships as if they are equal or similar to marriage.'”
