The Wake-Up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Welcome to Sodom U.S.A.
by Robert McCurry
A cultural revolution began in America in the 1960’s that confronted and challenged the Christian morals and morality of the nation; marriage, divorce, divorce/remarriage, family, sexuality, modesty/apparel, music, entertainment/amusement; the revolution continues to this day.
Culture n 1.the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group, place, or time; 2. A way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization; 3. Artistic activities such as music, theater, painting, etc.
Revolution n. a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something: a change of paradigm.
Morality n. pl. 1. Traditional customs. 2. The quality of being in accord with standards of right or good conduct; 3.Virtuous conduct; 4. Traditional customs right and wrong conduct: religious morality; Christian morality; 5. Synonyms: attitude, codes, established ways, etiquette, formalities, manners, morals, policies, practices, principles, protocol, rites, rituals, routines, rules, social conduct, standards, way of life. Antonyms: corruption, immorality.
Although not everyone in America was a ‘Christian’ in the 1960’s, all but a few non-Christians accepted Christianity’s teaching of the above referenced subjects as the norm.
No one expected, were prepared for, or even identified the ‘1960’s revolution’ as a ‘revolution’ when it began. Thus there were no ‘counter-revolution’ measures in place to substantively defy and resist the rapid introduction of the heretofore unimaginable new culture. Sadly, it was learned too late that the “Ignore it, it’s just a passing fad” mentality was a fatal delusion. The ‘1960’s cultural revolution’ was carved in stone in the 1970’s and is now irreversible, apart from a divine providential act of the sovereign, holy, Jehovah God.
It is interesting that every facet of the ‘1960’s revolution’ was predicated on ‘sexuality.’ The subject is too exhaustive to discuss here, but here are two examples. 1. The sexual revolution of the 1960's gave the American population the free will to live their life without feeling ashamed. 2. Women began to take control of their sexuality and trade in long skirts for short mini's and revealing necklines; ‘unisex’ apparel soon became the norm; a) Designed for or suitable to both sexes; b) Not distinguished or distinguishable on the basis of sex; androgynous in appearance: c) Elimination or absence of sexual distinctions, especially in dress. Interestingly, the apparel industry is owned primarily by ‘sodomites.’ It is not a coincidence that the ‘homosexual agenda’ and the sodomite controlled apparel industry have evolved simultaneously.
Of course, the sexual revolution of the 1960's encompassed more than provocative and unisex clothing. Sodomites who lived in secret came out of the closet in 1969, known as the Stonewall riots in New York's Greenwich Village; ‘homosexuality’ became a mainstream and front page buzz word media subject. The Homosexual in America was the featured article in the October 31, 1969 issue of Time. Media is the primary advocate and promoter of the ‘homosexual agenda’; its avid co partner is government—public—schools beginning with kindergarten.
Blackboard Jungle Blackout: When California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed two bills on Oct. 12, 2007, which essentially turned the state’s public schools over to homosexual and transgender activists, there was virtually no media coverage outside California. There still isn't.
Beginning in January 2008, California public schools must teach children as young as 3 to 5 years old that homosexuality is a normal, healthy lifestyle and that kids can choose their "gender." This means banning the terms "husband" and "wife" for the more progressively inclusive term "partner." "Moms" and "dads" will morph into sexually neutral "parents." Textbooks will be rewritten to blot out any reminder of married-couple-led families as a social norm. Gender-confused kids will get to use the restrooms of their choice. Any expression of negativity toward deviant sexuality will be punished as "bigotry." The coming changes are so radical that they produce gasps or professions of disbelief from people who hear about it from sources outside the mainstream media.
Bruce Shortt, an advocate of private schooling who writes a periodic report called "the Continuing Collapse" about problems in government schools, provides this analysis:
So far, the media have maintained a near total news blackout on this development.
A recent article [at Medill Reports online] on homosexual gains in the schools reflects how the advocates of legislation to mainstream deviant lifestyles plan to respond to queries from naive or fellow travelling reporters:
With the October signing of Senate Bill 777, California is the most recent state to have seen a battle between the two sides. Its sponsor, state Rep. Sheila Kuehl of Los Angeles, said the bill did little more than make language in the education code consistent with language in the state's other anti-discrimination laws. Discrimination based on sexual identity, she said, had been illegal in California for eight years.
So, the official story line is that SB 777 just makes technical changes that bring the Education Code into conformity with other laws that have been on the books for a long time. In other words, "nothing to see here folks, just move along."
Of course, Kuehl is right in a sense. After all, we could pass legislation requiring Jack Daniel's to be served in school cafeterias, and then claim that we are just making the Education Code consistent with other laws that have been on the books for years (the Volkstead Amendment was repealed over 70 years ago, and drinking alcohol is legal in California).
Leaving aside the question of any prior California legislation regarding deviant lifestyles and adults, the relevant question is whether Zelda's "advanced thoughts" on this subject should be inflicted on children. The reporter, as you will note, didn't really get to this, and she entirely missed the importance of California's brave new definition of "gender."

Remember. California yesterday; my state tomorrow.
Behind the incessant discussions about homosexuality at school is a purpose that reaches beyond tolerance. The real goal is forced enthusiastic acceptance of homosexual acts and frankly, of the elimination of distinctions between the genders. This includes acceptance of cross-dressing and cross-gender identification among students and teachers (“transgender” people).
Material from the influential school activist group, GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) defines “hate,” “homophobia” and “discrimination” as including even simple statements expressing personal disapproval of homosexuality for moral or religious reasons. As schools pass non-discrimination policies covering “sexual orientation,” these policies are being used to silence the voices of people who believe homosexuality is wrong.
Unjust stereotyping and references linking traditional views with “hatred” and even with violent acts are now a normal part of public school teaching in multi-culturalism and “anti-bias” lessons. In such an environment, children quickly learn to self-censor. No one wants to be one of "those" hateful bigots, right? They remain silent if they have been taught homosexuality is wrong at home. Over time, this silence will change to acceptance, and the enemy will become the parents, grandparents and churches that don’t support the brainwashing and propaganda. There will remain no obstacle to young teenagers’ total acceptance of, and in some cases, experimentation with morally and physically dangerous practices. TruthatSchool.org
The root cause of this abysmal homosexual catastrophe? Silent, passive, inert pastors and churches!
