WND's Welch Likens Gay Rights to Church Demolition
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily's Dave Welch has long been a gay-hater, and that tendency surfaces yet again in his Nov. 27 column, in which he warns about the danger of gays invading the small towns of America and demanding to be treated like (gasp!) everyone else:

Bowling Green, Ohio, is just the latest American city where the definitions of morality, family and marriage have fallen prey to the GLBT "anti-discrimination" offensive.

As the American Family Association revealed in their documentary ("They're Coming To Your Town") several years ago, GLBTQIA (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered, Questioning, Intersexed and Allies) activists have been quietly moving into small to midsize towns across the country and taking advantage of those who thought the sexual diversity battle is only in the "big cities."

Certainly, as "big city" Houston (population 2.25 million) was just reminded again, the battle certainly exists there as well. Lesbian Mayor Annise Parker has in her first year appointed a lesbian as judge who even by the media's standards was utterly unqualified, issued an executive order opening up city restrooms to the gender-confused and finally, to cap the year, just appointed a radical transgender activist as a city municipal judge.

However, small towns like Eureka Springs, Ark., (population 2,350 and featured in the AFA documentary) and midsize towns like Bowling Green (population 27,775) are increasingly in the crosshairs of the Human Rights Campaign, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and their cronies like the ACLU.

We have no idea what Welch is talking about when he says the "lesbian judge" appointed by Parker -- whom Welch despises for her gayness -- is "utterly unqualified." The only person we could find who fits Welch's description is Barbara Hartle, an "out lesbian" whom Parker nominated to head Houston's municipal courts. She was formerly an associate municipal judge, and she holds a law degree. How much more experience does Welch think she needs?

Welch went on to be offended that anti-discrimination ordinances that covered sexual orientation passed in those small towns, screeching that "non-discrimination is now the hammer used to bludgeon communities into submission by the Purveyors of Perversion."

Welch then goes in full-tilt scaremongering mode by referencing a controlled demolition of church buildings:

While we've argued that "sexual orientation" is a preference and not determined at birth, they blew right past us to add gender identity, gender expression and now … genetic information. While we get all worked up about our jobs, the economy and national security, the enemy has successfully destroyed our foundations.

Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas described the mechanics of their recently completed destruction of some old church buildings and how explosive charges were placed at strategic locations in the buildings' support beams at the foundation level.

When the button was pushed, explosions were heard, but nothing happened. At least, not for a few seconds. Then, the buildings simply collapsed on themselves in a pile of rubble.

I strongly urge you to watch the video and see these church buildings become nothing more than dust and wreckage. Then think of America following the same course.

As these GLBTQIA operatives run for city councils, become mayors, sponsor referendums and carry out an effective takeover of your town, will they take you by surprise since it always happens "somewhere else"?

When the dynamite explodes and the "institutions" collapse, will you find you were too busy just living your own life and doing church to have seen what was coming? 

Finally, after complaining that one pastor "made no formal endorsement of either side" on an anti-discrimination ordinance, Welch added: "It sounds like his gender identity may be up for question. If that sounds harsh, so be it."

Perhaps Welch's organization, the U.S. Pastor Council, needs to be put on that SPLC list of anti-gay groups.
