Several days ago, I went looking on the Internet to find out what I could about the so-called gay agenda, and what I found is located below. The following is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
'In 2003 Alan Sears and Craig Osten, president and vice-president of the Alliance Defense Fund, an American anti-gay conservative Christian organization, offered...[this] characterization [of the gay agenda]:
It is an agenda that they basically set in the late 1980s, in a book called After the Ball, where they laid out a six-point plan for how they could transform the beliefs of ordinary Americans with regard to homosexual behavior—in a decade-long time frame.... They admit it privately, but they will not say that publicly. In their private publications, homosexual activists make it very clear that there is an agenda. The six-point agenda that they laid out in 1989 was explicit:
- Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and as often as possible(...)
- Portray gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers(...)
- Give homosexual protectors a just cause(...)
- Make gays look good(...)
- Make the victimizers look bad(...)
- Get funds from corporate America(...)
After the Ball is a book published in 1989 by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen. It argues that after the gay liberation phase of the 1970s and 1980s, gay rights groups should adopt more professional public relations techniques to convey their message. It was published by Doubleday and was generally available.'
'The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is an American non-profit organization "dedicated to promoting and ensuring fair, accurate and inclusive representation of people and events in the media as a means of eliminating homophobia and discrimination"...[against] lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons. GLAAD describes the term as a "rhetorical invention of anti-gay extremists seeking to create a climate of fear by portraying the pursuit of civil rights for LGBT people as sinister," and commentators have remarked on a lack of realism and veracity to the idea of a gay agenda per se. Such campaigns based on a presumed "Gay Agenda" have been described as anti-gay propaganda by researchers and critics.'
Information is power. Since we're supposed to have a gay agenda, don't you think, as gay and lesbian people, we should know what that agenda is?
