"Much Needed Wakeup Call To Rouse "A Sleeping America" Agape Press "A group that works to combat the homosexual agenda and other anti-Christian influences in culture is urging concerned citizens to contact Southern Baptist leaders and voice support for a proposed resolution regarding homosexuality in U.S. public schools. A statement from Mission America characterizes the proposed resolution is a much needed wakeup call that has the potential to rouse "a sleeping America to the depth of homosexual activism in our schools." Mission America points out the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) will not vote on the resolution unless its Resolutions Committee brings it to the floor, and when a similar resolution was considered by that committee last year, it died there. The Christian activist group's statement observes that third-graders are being taught the "benefits" of cross-dressing, and middle school students, that objecting to homosexuality is hate. Meanwhile, high school students are "reading as 'literature' some of the most pornographic material available, all touting the benefits and rights of homosexuality." Mission America is asking parents, grandparents, supporters, activists and others to write letters to the members of the SBC Resolutions Committee, urging them to send the Shortt-Baucham resolution to the floor for approval at the SBC's annual meeting. The Committee members' contact information is available to concerned pro-family individuals from [email protected]."
