Editorial: Homosexual agenda roadblocks

Radical homosexual groups are going to have a harder time changing American culture with Donald Trump as president.

Barack Obama, who campaigned in 2008 against homosexual marriage, will go down in the history books as the biggest backer of the homosexual agenda in terms of presidential politics. He lied in 2008 and then changed his policy after he was safely re-elected in 2012.

The homosexual left is blasting Trump, even though it isn’t clear what his view will be. They fear he will listen to his advisors and not encourage homosexuality.

The homosexual agenda plans to target state legislatures. These are chiefly controlled by Republican majorities who disagree with the wholesale movement to accept homosexuality – and men dressed as women in public women’s restrooms and locker rooms – and plan to pass statutes to maintain common decency.

Another battleground will be the issue of “religious freedom.” Radical homosexuals want private businesses to be forced to violate their moral conscience and provide services or face civil and criminal charges.

They want bakers to go to jail if they don’t make a wedding cake for a homosexual ceremony. They want to force Christian colleges to offer health care insurance that pays for abortions. The list grows all the time.

In Congress, Republicans now control the House, the Senate and the White House and they plan to pan the First Amendment Defense Act. That would stop any punitive action against people who believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. Trump has promised to sign the bill.

Texas will soon pass a bathroom bill similar to the one in North Carolina. Liberals threaten massive boycotts should that pass but Texas is much bigger than North Carolina and should weather that storm.

America needs to return to its moral roots. The exit of Barack Obama should make the acceptance of homosexuality less of a foregone conclusion.
