Here's the American Family Association's web site:
And here's a link to their "homosexual agenda" pages:
I love their article titles:
The Deception and Desensitization of America's Youth
"Gay" activists target America's children and seek their help in quest of "tolerance" and "acceptance"
Rather than attempt to comment I'll just quote them:
An Organization with a "Passion" for Children
On Wednesday, April 9, 2003, the daily routine of public schools and colleges across America will once again come to a halt as a minority of administrators and students demand America's approval and acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle.
What should be more appropriately called the "Day of Disruption," the 8th annual "Day of Silence" will be sponsored by GLSEN, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
GLSEN in well known for organizing "Gay/Straight Alliances" (GSAs), better known as "gay" clubs, within public schools. They also establish "Safe Zones" for sexually confused students - rooms marked by an inverted pink triangle.
The "gay" pink icon indicates students can go and openly speak to that teacher or administrator about their same-sex attractions. Rather than sharing the truth that no one is born "gay," that in most cases homosexuality develops in one's childhood and that complete change to "healthy heterosexuality" is completely possible, the students are mislead.
"The "gay" or homo-sympathetic counselor, in many cases following GLSEN guidelines, will usually affirm the questioning youths' 'gay' feelings and encourage them down the homosexual path. These counselors will then often refer the students to outside homosexual organizations and 'gay' clubs - without parental knowledge or consent.
Unfortunately for many of these children, this will be the beginning of the end.
The Sound of Silence
Participants in the "Day of Silence" are instructed to refuse to talk throughout the entire school day. Rather than speaking, the protestors are encouraged to hand out flyers explaining their "silence for sin."
Openly "gay" principals, teachers, students and sympathizers will lead the homosexual offensive by flooding the school hallways with posters and signs demanding the acceptance and tolerance of an immoral, deviant lifestyle.
At many schools, the rainbow flag - a symbol of "gay" and lesbian rebellion - will be hoisted, proudly flying for the entire day underneath America's stars and stripes. Students will also don their graphic and offensive shirts, billboarding the aberrant message, even louder than ever.
Finally at the end of the day's mayhem, students and administrators will be joined by "gay" supporters and guest speakers, converging in a variety of closing ceremonies called "Breaking the Silence," boasting of their message of sin.
Christians have remained silent for far too long. While many godly men, women, churches and organizations continually answer the call to speak out against the promotion of immorality, sin and the murder of the unborn - it's not enough. 43 million murdered babies since Roe vs. Wade proves our failure as the church of Jesus Christ. How many more children need to be sacrificed on the altar of homosexuality?
What Would Jesus Do?
Jesus never "tolerated" or "accepted" sin. While His response to sin was swift and sometimes harsh, His motive was always one of unconditional love.
Jesus didn't "pussy foot" around, fearful He may "offend" someone or worried He may appear "hate-filled," "intolerant" or "bigoted." No, Jesus called it like it was: sin is sin is sin. Many times He openly exhibited a holy, righteous anger and zeal for "His Father's business."
Jesus rebuked and exposed - always offering hope, redemption and reconciliation - "…go and sin no more." It's high time Christians - followers and Ambassadors of Christ - did the same.
The Gospel: the Truth That Sets Us Free
As a former homosexual, my heart's desire is to share the truth about homosexuality with the world - especially the youth. Maybe I can spare a few from what I went through, maybe even save a few lives from the death sentence of AIDS. I've buried too many friends in the ground already.
I was a man once trapped and deceived by the "gay" lifestyle until I was 28 years old. Many of my 100+ partners a dead today from AIDS and it's a miracle that I'm even alive. I know it was the Lord who spared me from infection with HIV.
Thank God for the Christian who came to my door in 1990 with a Bible in her hand. She was not afraid to confront me and my homosexual sin with the only thing that could set me free: the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm eternally grateful to her for not buying into the false gospel of "L-U-V" today called "tolerance and acceptance." I'm sure my wife and two little children today would thank her as well.
The truth is no one is born "gay" - no one. In most all cases one's homosexuality has everything to do with childhood. But most importantly, Jesus Christ offers hope and complete deliverance. Complete change is completely possible!

So right away it's inferred by the article's title that the only "passion" involved is sinful and perverted. The rest of the article speaks for itself.
