1. While you weren’t looking: FBI and CIA embrace homosexual movement. Reaching out to “gay and transgender community.” Look for crackdown on pro-family groups.
The US military and State Department aren’t the only branches of the US government to “go gay.” Since the Obama Administration took control, the FBI and CIA, the two main federal law enforcement and surveillance organizations, have fully embraced the homosexual and transgender movements, and appear to be poised to crack down on pro-family groups and citizens who are critical.
FBI’s Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender Program
From the FBI’s “careers” website.
For example, the FBI is actively recruiting homosexual and “transgender” employees and agents. The FBI’s “careers” website now boasts a page advising potential (and current) job applicants.
A sample of the “Questions and Answers for Applicants” are:
Q. Can you be gay and work at the FBI?
A. Yes. The FBI does not discriminate against a person’s sexual orientation with regard to hiring decisions. To be sure, the FBI has open lesbian, gay, bisexual, and possibly transgender employees, as well as an LGBT Advisory Committee. The FBI welcomes and appreciates the contribution of its LGBT employees.
Q. Can you be gay and be an FBI Agent?
A. Yes. In fact, you can be gay in any position within the FBI.
Q. Does the FBI celebrate PRIDE?
A. Yes. The FBI recently held an informal reception at FBI Headquarters and was proud to have Congressman Barney Frank as its speaker. Also, individual field offices are encouraged to have their own celebrations, educational presentations, or participate in LGBT community events.
Q. Does the FBI have an LGBT Advisory Committee?
A. Yes. The FBI recently formed the LGBT Advisory Committee under the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Affairs. The committee is composed of both Special Agents and support employees and is represented by gay, straight, and lesbian employees. The committee’s members are from all over the United States. The purpose of the committee is to listen to the voices of the FBI LGBT employees and communicate concerns, policies, and ways in which the FBI can recognize its LGBT employees. The committee meets telephonically each month to discuss old and new business and meets twice each year at Headquarters.
Q. I’m not out at work, but I want to be. Does the FBI provide assistance with coming out?
A. The LGBT Advisory Committee, as well as the employee assistance programs and counselors, are available to employees who need assistance with coming out or adjusting to being openly gay at work.
The CIA and “gay pride”
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has actually been involved with the homosexual movement for over 15 years, according to its website. The CIA boasts about its internal organization called the Agency Network of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Employees and Allies (ANGLE). ANGLE helps recruit LGBT employees and sets up CIA Pride Month celebrations at various CIA offices around the country.
From the CIA website
In addition, ANGLE involves CIA employees in general “gay pride” activities. (They’ve gone from spying to participating!) For example, the following was on its website:
In further celebration of Pride Month, the CIA participated in Capital Pride’s Festival, the annual LGBT celebration in Washington, D.C. The annual event is the third largest Pride festival in the country, attracting more than 250,000 people. Officers from ANGLE, the Center for Mission Diversity and Inclusion, and the CIA’s Recruitment Center discussed career opportunities at the Agency as well as efforts to create an inclusive and supportive environment for LGBT employees.
FBI’s outrageous partnership with Southern Poverty Law Center
Perhaps the most outwardly frightening aspect of the FBI is its official partnership with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which is itself a hate group desguised as a “tolerance” group. The SPLC has defamed, libeled, and outwardly lied about hundreds of pro-family groups and individuals, in addition to immigration reform groups, religious groups, people in conservative media, and even members of Congress. The SPLC has created and advertizes its bizarre and offensive list of those it labels “hate groups,” “extremists,” and “domestic terrorists” that even includes the Tea Party.
Most recently, pro-life activist Peter D’Attilio, who simply holds signs and leaflets, has been informed by police that he is on an FBI terrorist watch list. The Family Research Council’s offices and a guard were shot by a gunman after the SPLC labeled them a “hate group.”
Going after pro-family groups and citizens?
So when we start to see headlines like these in homosexual publications, we get concerned to say the least.
At the gay pride event, according to the press reports, the person running the CIA booth told people, “The CIA headquarters will soon have two unixex restrooms.”
Department of Justice leading the way
The FBI’s parent agency, the Department of Justice under Eric Holder, has gone to extraordinary lengths to promote the LGBT agenda. This summer Eric Holder personally gave a top DOJ award, with great fanfare, to a “transgender” DOJ attorney – a man who dresses as a woman. In particular, this man is helping sue school districts that don’t sufficiently implement pro-homosexual “anti-bullying” programs.

Will a Romney administration stop this?
There’s no question that Barack Obama is more aggressive at pushing the radical homosexual and transgender agendas than anyone could possibly have imagined. The fact that the mainstream media (and most of the conservative media) is almost completely silent about this gives him even more cover to continue. In a second term, it would unquestionably get even worse.
Would Mitt Romney be like Obama in this regard? Or would he put a stop to, or roll back, what Obama has done? When Romney announced to a national audience that he would support “gay rights” and in effect be the most pro-homosexual Republican president ever, that didn’t give us much confidence. Plus, he supports “gays” in the military. We’ll see what happens.
2. Another VICTORY in Australia: Tasmania Parliament rejects “gay marriage”!
It’s been a great month for the pro-family cause “down under.” After the Australian Parliament rejected “gay marriage” last week, it was announced that the state Parliament of the Australian state of Tasmania would immediately be voting on it.
Last month it passed Tasmania’s Lower House by 13 to 11 and it was then awaiting a vote in the Upper House. Since the homosexual groups had been lobbying them heavily, and the Tasmanian Premier was passionately for it, it seemed like a lost cause.
But on Thursday, after two days of debate, it was defeated in the Upper House by 8 to 6. Apparently there was some fear that they were being unduly influenced by the special interests of the homosexual lobby, which didn’t square with the average citizens. Plus, it was recognized that since the Australian national Constitution includes marriage as a national issue, there would surely be a court fight which would likely be lost. And finally, the bill created a separate type of marriage called “gay marriage,” an unusual approach.
You could tell there was uneasiness by tone of the debate. As ABC News in Australia reported:
The final speaker before the vote, Member for Windermere Ivan Dean, had been under enormous pressure but decided to vote against the legislation.
“My basic position is that marriage is between a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life,” he said.
“I do not believe on the evidence I have that a majority of Tasmanians support it.
“Evidence suggests that the majority of my electorate do not support it.
“There’s no mandate for the Government to move in this direction, and the public have been misled, in my opinion.”
The debate in the Upper House on the “gay marriage” bill.
After the vote,the Tasmanian Premier was particularly upset. As the ABC article described:
Premier Lara Giddings said it was a disappointing result but the Government would not give up on the reform.
“We will continue this. It’s not the end. It’s the beginning,” Ms Giddings said.
“It took many times for us to get gay law reform through.
“It took many times and attempts to get anti-discrimination law reform through.”
Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings angrily addresses the media after the vote defeating “gay marriage.”
The other Australian state that is actively pushing this is South Australia. The fight continues there.
3. Commentary: Has the conservative movement given up on the homosexual issue?
We are living at a time when the homosexual (and transgender) agendas are becoming more aggressive and militant than ever, and are taking over more of our government than we could ever have imagined.
Just a few examples:
The FBI, CIA, DOJ issues described above
The repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and its effect on the military
The State Department, and the homosexualization of our embassies and foreign policy
The Obama Administration’s bringing in hundreds of radical “gays” into sensitive federal positions, including federal judgeships
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s “hate group” scam against pro-family organizations and individuals
The “kiss-ins” and other harassment at Chick-fil-A and other companies
The shooting in the lobby of Family Research Council by a pro-homosexual activist
The bitter fights this year in four states over “gay marriage” referendums
The mainstream media’s and entertainment industry’s obsession with homosexual characters and issues
And so much more . . .
But you wouldn’t know it by going to any of the major conservative conferences this year.
At CPAC 2012, the Values Voter Summit, the Eagle Council Leadership Conference, or the upcoming CPAC West in Colorado, there were a lot of speakers and a lot of panels on a wide range of conservative and family issues.
But we couldn’t find a single one with a speaker or topic regarding the radical homosexual agenda and its effects on America. Not one. Not even on the huge GLBT push in our schools. Sure, there was some stuff on “the sanctity of marriage” and “our religious rights,” but nothing that comes close to discussing the real issue. If we’re mistaken or missed something please let us know. But we went over the schedules pretty well.
We have great respect for the organizations that put on these events. But we’re very disappointed that something this overwhelming would be completely ignored.
Sadly we think there’s a bit of fear and trepidation from the obvious fallout that would happen when you talk about these subjects openly and freely. There’s the intimidation from the “gay allies” in the conservative movement (e.g., GoProud, Log Cabin Republicans). or “fiscal only” conservatives. But the homosexual movement itself can be vicious and unrelenting. The shooting at FRC was just one example of what the homosexual movement is capable of. When Scott Lively spoke earlier this year, a brick was thrown through a window with threats written on it. We’ve seen churches terrorized when they held “Love Won Out” conferences inside. Chick-fil-A endured “kiss-ins” and graffiti.
We understand that fear. But we’re still disappointed.
You can count on MassResistance to continue talking about this, reporting on it, and organizing to confront it.
