Last night, Dan and I were listening to Focus on the Family, and Dr. J. Dobson had two guests on his show speaking about the current legislations in the U.S. courts (Sept. 19/05). I encourage you to listen online if possible on Family.org, or to click on the following links.

Dr. Dobson said he is no longer allowed to broadcast programs in Canada that deal with homosexuality, since he would be sued/penalized under Canada's "Hate Crime" legislation. Wow. I had no idea this was true. At this time, there are several pastors in Canada that are dealing with legal repercussions due to speaking out against the homosexual community. As you now know, gay marriage is legal in Canada and the decision was based on the hate crime legislation.
Dobson warned that there is current legislation being passed in the U.S. courts that follows Canada's actions. The "Hate Crime" initiative is covered under a 'racist' lid but is intended to prohibit the speaking out against the gay community. The evening news is not going to warn Americans of these legal battles so we need to be proactive and keep informed ourselves and write/call our senators and statemen. Family.org has online newsletters that you can receive to be kept abreast of the laws/legal fights, and ways you can support the fights.
***To those in California, Family.org has a link to Schwarzenegger's e-mail address/phone/fax so that you can let him know you want him to veto the current gay marriage bill. You can use the following link: CitizenLink - Extras - Urge Schwarzenegger to Veto Gay-Marriage Bill
I'm not sure how much this blog will help, but at least I hope it makes us all more aware and willing to stand up for what we believe in before it is too late. Abortion is legal and it probably will always be but we still have a chance to stand against 'gay marriage'.
