A pro-family leader says homosexuals will be celebrating if Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry wins the White House.
Rob Schenck of the National Clergy Council says Kerry has promised the homosexual community that he will champion their cause -- a promise that was relayed to a homosexual rally in Boston, Massachusetts, after the recent Democratic National Convention.
Schenck says members of the homosexual community "know who Senator Kerry is, regardless of what he says about his beliefs on marriage. They know precisely the policies that he will embrace, and it will be full support for the so-called homosexual political agenda."
The National Clergy Council leader says Kerry is committed to his view of social redesign, which includes new status for homosexuals.
However, the pastor warns about the societal impact of electing Kerry to the White House, since homosexual advocates themselves predict that a Kerry White House would be the most pro-homosexual administration in U.S. history.
"Gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans-gendered social agenda -- all of that is very much a part of Senator Kerry's philosophy of government and social restructuring," Schenck says.
A former homosexual who now helps people break free from that lifestyle is also warning that pro-family individuals should be concerned about the political gains and future aims of today's homosexual movement.
Randy Thomas, a spokesman for Exodus International, says the homosexual agenda has changed since 20 or 30 years ago. He contends that homosexual activists, no longer content just to gain tolerance and acceptance, are seeking power over their adversaries. "I see it sort of as a vengeful attack against people they perceive are unenlightened, not progressive, and all these different things," he says.
"They're not seeking tolerance anymore -- they're seeking power," Thomas asserts. He adds that the struggle between the radical homosexual agenda and the pro-family movement is a dangerous battle -- and he fears that if homosexuality wins, religious liberty loses.
