AFA of PA encourages Christians, through education, to become involved in pro-family issues in their community, state and the nation. This is some of what has been going on in the Commonwealth and the nation.
World AIDS Day was first established in 1988 by the World Health Organization to unite communities to fight against HIV/AIDS. The US theme for 2015 is “The Time to Act is Now.” The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide advocate for Biblical morality, abstinence until marriage and faithfulness within marriage, agrees that the time to act is now, but the first step is the need for honesty.
Since the 1950′s Kinsey Report, the homosexual population in the US has been touted at being ten percent. This misleading report was based on faulty data. According to Dr. Judith Reisman, “Eighty-seven percent of his subjects were sex addicts, homosexuals, criminals, rapists, prostitutes, pedophiles and prisoners.” Thanks to an unrelenting pro-gay media campaign, in 2011 Gallup asked people how many Americans were homosexual, most guessed 25%. Now the truth has been exposed in a new Centers for Disease Control National Health Interview Survey which shows less than 3 percent of the US population identifies as gay, lesbian or bisexual and homosexual activists are “distressed” over the news.
Getting “sexual orientation” added to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) was a top priority of homosexual activists for years. Now they are not pleased with the results of that survey and have said they will challenge them. In fact, according to the Washington Post, they are “distressed over the results of the first large-scale federal survey measuring sexual orientation in the United States.” The NHIS has been around for 57 years and is the government’s premier measure of American’s health statuses and behaviors.
Since the 1950’s with the Kinsey Report, the homosexual population in the US has been touted at being ten percent. In 2011 Gallup asked people how many Americans were homosexual, most guessed 25%. Who could blame them with the media, entertainment and school curriculum showcasing homosexual activists, placing ‘gay’ characters in almost every television program or movie and rewriting history. In 2012 Gallup conducted a survey of 121,000 people, the largest study ever aimed at calculating the LGBT population in the US. The results showed 3.4% of the population identified as LGBT. This survey showed that the only place in the country that really has a 10 percent gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender population is Washington, DC. Pennsylvania came in eighth from the bottom, with 2.7% identifying as LGBT; 9,716 interviews were conducted by Gallup for the poll results in PA.
Friday, April 11th has been declared the “Day of Silence” by the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and, according to them, it is a day set aside when “students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT.” However, as noted by the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), the ultimate goal is to normalize homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism.
Last week Diane Gramley, President of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), spoke at a news conference in front of the Washington, DC headquarters of the homosexual lobby group Human Rights Campaign. She focused on the statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) which outline the dangers associated with the homosexual lifestyle and questioned the use of the word ‘pride’ after looking at the multiple health risks. This past Sunday’s Philadelphia Pride Festival proved her point.
