Perhaps a bit more boldness on our part will go a long way to oppose the unbiblical agenda (see Philippians 1:14).

Pastor Leads Christian Movement Opposing Homosexual Agenda in NC SchoolsWritten by Rev. H.A Bergsma
A coalition of evangelical Christians has successfully fended off a campaign by homosexual activists in one North Carolina school district. Members of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) have been pressuring the Winston-Salem/Forsyth School Board to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" in the district's non-discrimination policy. However, the board recently decided not to revise its policy. Pastor Ron Baity of Berean Baptist Church in Winston-Salem led a coalition of Christians that opposed the pro-homosexual effort. He says for a long time homosexual activists, and especially the GLSEN crowd, have been coming to the school board meetings and pushing their agenda, while not a single church in the area came and spoke out against their movement. But Baity says as a result of the coalition speaking out, things started to change immediately. "It's been a real burst of spiritual energy for our people because they've been encouraged to see that if you do get involved, there is a possibility that you can make a change," the coalition leader notes. The pastor contends that the people pushing the homosexual agenda in America are in the minority. Baity believes Christians today are suffering the consequences of having been silent too long on important societal issues. (From Agape Press)
