The event is to take place in Washington Square Park. Just what is this park? It is where thousands of unknown Continental Army soldiers are buried in unmarked graves. These soldiers from George Washington’s army died from wounds and sickness during the War for Independence. The memorial itself bears a quote from President Washington’s 1794 Farewell Address, “The independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint councils and joint efforts – of common dangers, sufferings and success.” An “Eternal Flame” is lit in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier.
At first homosexuals asked to be left alone to live their lives. They continued demanding more and more, until finally they demanded “marriage equality.” Last year the US Supreme Court handed them that demand and still they want more — to force all to accept and celebrate their lifestyle choice. Evidence of this is in the attacks on churches, colleges and organizations which adhere to the Biblical definition of sexuality and marriage. The latest example is the listing of Lancaster Bible College on Campus Pride’s ‘Shame List.’
GLSEN’s Day of Silence is April 15th. Painted as an effort to prevent the bullying of students who identify as “gay,” lesbian, bisexual or transgender, in actuality it is a day that promotes the normalization of perversion. Check with your child’s school to see if they allow students or teachers to remain silent on this day of activism. If they do or don’t give a straightforward answer, keep you kids home that day!

In fact they founded Boy Scout Troop 2 and one of the church’s pastors was the first scoutmaster!! Why did they sever their ties with the Scouts? Because of the National Council of the Boy Scout’s decision to allow boys who identify as homosexual in as members. The BSA change in policy will take effect on January 1st, the same day the long time association the church has had with the Boy Scouts ends.
As yet another municipality in southeastern Pennsylvania is “encouraged” to pass a so-called anti-discrimination ordinance, the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide pro-family group, has contacted each Council Member in the Borough of Conshohocken in Montgomery County warning them of the real world ramifications of the passage of such ordinances in other parts of the country.

Today the Office of the Surgeon General released “How Tobacco Smoke Causes Disease: The Biology and Behavioral Basis for Smoking-Attributable Disease.” However, the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, a statewide family values group, notes that smokers are permitted to donate blood, but a man who has had sex with another man – even once – cannot.
Each year since October 11, 1987 homosexual activists groups encourage individuals, some as young as eleven, to ‘come out’ as homosexual, bisexual or transgender. This is an effort to “prove” that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are “everywhere”.
