Received this email:

What is tolerance exactly? Merriam-Webster's defines it as "sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting with one's own."

When an Equality California board member, Ben Patrick Johnson, wrote to CRI last week after our appearance on Fox News, and threatened that their group would "BURY" CRI if we "continue our efforts," Equality California's true colors were shown.

CRI was also the subject of attack in several other e-mails sent out by the Equality California group: "The right wing is attacking lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth" and "In another assault this week, the Capitol Resource Institute launched an aggressive campaign against EQCA-sponsored legislation [SB 777] to protect youth in schools."

"CRI is going after LGBT youth by trying to stop the Student Civil Rights Act, which would ensure that all students have a safe place to grow and learn," continued the attack.

SB 777 requires textbooks to be rewritten so they do not "reflect adversely" on homosexuality. This could very well mean that textbooks will be barred from stating things like "mom and dad" or "husband and wife" unless homosexual couples are also included in a positive light. The legislation is broad and sweeping and you can read about more of its effects on CRI's website.

To be clear, CRI believes that all students be protected from incidents of violence on campus. SB 777 is not about student safety or else it would center on the enforcement of existing safety codes and school discipline for all children. Rather, it is yet another piece of legislation-probably the most extreme we have seen thus far-to force the acceptance of homosexuality on all students and teachers.

Pushing the homosexual agenda-requiring textbooks to be radically altered, creating special-crime victim status for homosexuals, and changing the institution of marriage-is not about promoting tolerance. What it's really about is normalizing homosexuality.

If homosexual-lifestyle proponents were truly concerned about leveling the playing field so that all points of view are equally tolerated, it wouldn't be working overtime to squelch the Judeo-Christian point of view.

For Equality California, the definition of tolerance is one sided-Christians must accept and embrace homosexuality without being given a public forum to express our own views on the matter.

Why are groups like Equality California so eager to silence Christians and organizations like CRI that are promoting a Judeo-Christian point of view? In short, it's because our message is truthful. Equality California knows that it ultimately cannot fight and win against the truth. So, rather than allow the free-flow of ideas, the homosexual lobby wants the truth to be silenced altogether.

Examples of how Christians messages are being silenced while homosexual messages are allowed is evidenced in "hate crimes" legislation-which could potentially be used to silence pastors and other Christians for their thoughts and words-and school administrative policies that prohibit students from wearing t-shirts promoting biblical messages about homosexuality even though other students are permitted to wear pro-homosexual t-shirts.

CRI exists to promote truthful messages in California's capitol, throughout our state, and throughout the nation. We advocate for and defend traditional Judeo-Christian values. We stand behind churches, pastors, students, parents, teachers, medical professionals, and all citizens who simply want to live-out their religious beliefs and convictions.

Will you stand with us by giving a contribution to CRI's work today?

When you stand with CRI, you stand with an entire network of citizens who believe in pro-family values and religious freedom.

CRI has been singled out from numerous other policy groups to be attacked by the most prominent homosexual-advocacy group in California, Equality California. Because of this alone, we know that our work is effective.

Will you help us expand our message so that we can be stronger and more effective than ever before?

We need your help!

Every dollar you send to CRI is used to fight for family values. CRI uses your contributions to fight against the homosexual lobby's attempts to silence Christianity, indoctrinate young school children, and undermine parental authority.

Your generous donation ensures that you will continue to have a strong and effective voice in Sacramento!

Millions will hear the debate!

Dear Christine:

God is making you and your work more and more a big blessing to the one Church body (spiritual Israel). As a former practicing lesbian (for more than 20 years) and a drunk (for more than 30 years) I read your Talkwisdom posts with gratitude in my heart. Jesus Christ has set me free.

My job in Israel as a Christian volunteer with Bridges for Peace is coming to a close after 5 years and I look forward to the future wherever the Lord leads me. Much love to you on the West Coast from Jerusalem. (ss)
