Homosexual activists work to silence the church

lesbian relationshipHomosexual activists continue their campaign to silence the church - and there are continuing examples of that taking place.

It's all part of a strategy to force their will on people through government officials, the courts, and breaking down the church. Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute cites an example.

“There is a political event that's organized and promoted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, and last year in California five nuns who worked in a Catholic hospital walked out because these materials from GLSEN had infiltrated a Catholic hospital,” she says.

The literature teaches acceptance of homosexual conduct while the Bible forbids it. Now, a former music director at a Chicago-area Catholic church who was fired after announcing his engagement to his same-gender partner has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the parish and the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Higgins says the pressure is going to advance to limiting what people can publicly say, it's going to come to religious schools and will infiltrate the church as it already has in many cases. 

“What they're really saying is You have to accept our set of subjective assumptions about the nature and morality of homosexuality or, yes, we will crush you,” she tells OneNewsNow.

“You either have to accept them and affirm them or you have to be silent, and they will use the force of the courts to force your silence.”

Activists, she concludes, feel they must silence the church to gain their objectives, or at least minimize the church's influence.
