The following is Part Two of America’s Survival’s coverage of our press conference Tuesday, June 4, 2013, in front of the D.C. headquarters of Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest and most powerful homosexual activist lobby organization. Speaking first is Linda Harvey, founder and president of Mission America, discussing the homosexualist agenda and youth.

Remarks by Linda Harvey, President, Mission America, www.missionamerica.com , June 4, 2013
Press conference at Human Rights Campaign, Washington, DC:
Is homosexuality a human right? No, it’s not. This sexual preference is not intrinsic to human beings, is far from positive conduct for any person and certainly not for children, but the organization in the building behind me believes it is. And they intend to keep using smoke and mirrors to prevent America from a careful analysis, from a respectful debate, about what they are demanding.
Starting with its deceptive name, the Human Rights Campaign is spreading sweeping lies throughout America. And they are, of course, not alone. From the misnomer of “gay pride” as deviant displays in our major cities, to the ungodly idea of two men or two women as marriage, HRC joins other untrustworthy groups to arm-twist and bully our country into embracing high-risk immorality, behavior that no one ever needs to do in the first place. People aren’t born homosexual, so objecting to this conduct is not a violation of anyone’s “rights.”
But how does HRC deal with challenges? By “agreeing to disagree”? By welcoming a reasonable debate? No, if you disagree, you become the target of smear campaigns, where truth is noticeably absent. If you stand up for man/woman marriage, HRC calls you a hateful bigot.
Mr. & Mrs. America, you’ll get no respect, or genuine human rights, if HRC has its way. Their goal is nothing less than total suppression of all opposing views.
I stand before you today to ask you to please help expose the deception, if for no other reason, to save those few who might see things differently. I believe God will soften the hearts of some, even in this building, to embrace a better and bigger vision for their lives than the bondage of homosexual behavior.
But if we cry foul for no other reason, please speak out to help our children.
One of the recent efforts of the Human Rights Campaign has been to sell homosexuality to the youth of America, beginning at very young ages. They’ve developed an educational program called “Welcoming Schools.” What it attempts to do is create the impression among elementary school-aged children and their families, that two men or two women as the heads of families are no different than any other type of family, and that dissenting views are hateful.
The lessons of ”Welcoming Schools” urge little children to be willing to call their confused fellow students, little boys at 7, 8 or 9 years of age, by girl names if that boy wants. And to allow them to use girl restrooms. And girls should be ushered into boy restrooms and change their names also. Oh, and all this is okay for teachers and parents as well, and it’s all done in the name of “anti-bullying.”
In such truth-free environments, it’s no wonder some children are confused and frightened.
And as far as families of faith who might not agree with this inaccurate and harmful propaganda? They are not “welcome” under the “Welcoming Schools” program. As far as Human Rights Campaign is concerned, such families can go jump off a cliff.
The positioning of tolerance is a sham, friends, and respect for authentic mom/dad headed families as a precious ideal is missing from “Welcoming Schools.” And children will be led into darkness and many into sin as a result.
HRC wants children and teens to embrace and celebrate the stress and anxiety of gender confusion. They have no problem with young teens becoming sexually active in any direction chosen, or becoming young activists trained early in deep resentment and bold misinformation.
America, we need to speak out and let our voices be heard. HRC is not right. Their positions and actions are misleading, deceptive and divisive, and it is truly sad that our culture is being degraded as a result.
Text of speech by Diane Gramley:
News Conference June 4, 2013
One of the definitions that Webster’s Dictionary gives “Pride” is “a reasonable or justifiable self-respect.” Thus the term “gay pride” is oxymoronic. What is there to be proud of when the sexual activity in which one chooses to engage leads to increased health risks and early death? The Centers for Disease Control found that in 2009 men who have sex with men accounted for 61% of all new HIV infections. They also noted that men who have sex with men (MSM) are at increased risk for syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. Those numbers are nothing of which to be proud.
According to the CDC, in 2010 seventy-seven percent of HIV infections among men were male to male sexual contact. Add another four percent to that for male to male sexual contact and intravenous drug use for a whopping total of 81 percent of HIV infections among men were linked to men who have sex with men. Of the nearly 48,000 new HIV cases identified in the United States in 2010, the latest year for which complete data are available, more than 12,000 involved teens and young adults, the Centers for Disease Control found in its latest report. Translation: youth make up one in four new HIV cases. About 72 percent of these new HIV cases in younger adults occurred in young men who are gay or bisexual.
As Matt Foreman, former head of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said a few years back: “AIDS is a gay disease.” Nothing to be proud of. But what else is there?
Homosexual writer Jack Hart, author of Gay Sex: a Manual for Men Who Love Men said, “Many sexually transmitted diseases occur more often among gay men than in the general population. Several factors contribute to this difference: Gay men have the opportunity to engage in sex with more people than do most heterosexual men, and some practices common in the gay community are highly efficient ways of transmitting disease.”
Some 619,000 persons have died of AIDS in the United States since the epidemic began in the early 1980s, according to the CDC. Nothing of which to be proud.
Increases in primary and secondary syphilis among MSM have been increasing since 2000. In 2011, MSM accounted for 72 percent of all syphilis cases in 46 states and the District of Columbia.
Now word from the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association: (May 2012)
1) Men who have sex with men are at an increased risk of sexually transmitted infection with the viruses that cause hepatitis. These infections can be potentially fatal, and can lead to very serious long-term issues such as liver failure and liver cancer. Immunizations are available to prevent two or the three most serious viruses. Universal immunization for Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B Virus is recommended for all men who have sex with men.
2) Problems with body image are more common among gay men, and gay men are much more likely to experience an eating disorder such as bulimia or anorexia.
3) Gay men use substance at a higher rate than the general population, and not just in larger cities. These include a number of substances ranging from “poppers,” to marijuana, Ecstasy, and amphetamines.
4) Sexually transmitted diseases occur in sexually active gay men at a high rate. These include STD infections for which effective treatment is available (syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, pubic lice, and others), and for which not cure is available (HIV, Hepatitis, Human Papilloma Virus, herpes, etc.).
5) Gay men may be at risk for death by prostrate, testicular, or colon cancer (from Detroit’s homosexual newspaper “Between the Lines”: In general, gay men are at a 35 times higher risk for developing anal cancer when compared to the rest of the population, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
6) Gay men use tobacco at much higher rates than straight men, reaching nearly 50 percent in several studies
Again: “Pride” is defined as “a reasonable or justifiable self-respect.” Again: the term “gay pride” is oxymoronic. The Human Rights Campaign, when promoting homosexuality, only push their agenda trying to convince America that “gay” is OK. However, these stats show that “gay” is definitely not OK, as the human body responds to being misused during unnatural homosexual sex.
