Ecuador is a conservative thinking country
If so, why is the LGBT movement making an impact on this small and conservative country?
News like this continue to shake up our country “Same sex couple, registered their sons in Ecuador with their last names”
The majority of Ecuador is extremely conservative. Ecuador, also has small percentage of liberal thinking younger people. However, in general, the majority of Ecuadorians, (74%) oppose same sex marriages and only 11% of adults over 35 years old support it.
While some international publications attempt to show Ecuador as a very liberal thinking country, only 22% of the 18-34 age group in Ecuador support same sex unions and marriages.
The fact is that majority of Ecuadorians are not in agreement with the homosexual agenda as presented from the USA and world point of view (Pew Research Center, 2014) http://www.pewforum.org/2014/11/13/chapter-5-social-attitudes/
“Beyond Today”, a Christian based magazine recently published an article which started with a quote from Kirk and Madsen:
“ In any campaign to win over the public, gays must be cast as victims in need of protection,” (Kirk and Madsen). Furthermore, Kirk and Madsen added:
“The startling shift in American attitudes toward gays and same-sex marriage is not the result of chance or random events. More than a quarter century ago, gay strategists laid out a plan to transform the nation—with astounding success.”
” Of course this does not address the issue of whether the gay lifestyle is right or wrong. It is an attempt to emotionally manipulate others with the motive of getting them to accept values they otherwise wouldn’t agree with.”
Kirk and Madsen added:
” If gays are presented, instead, as a strong and prideful tribe promoting a rigidly nonconformist and deviant lifestyle, they are more likely to be seen as a public menace that justifies resistance and oppression. For that reason, we must forego the temptation to strut our ‘gay pride’ publicly when it conflicts with the Gay Victim image.
Then, continue, “It almost goes without saying that groups on the farthest margin of acceptability such as NAMBLA [the North American Man-Boy Love Association, which as its name suggests promotes adult-child homosexual sex] must play no part at all in such a campaign: suspected child-molesters will never look like victims …
“At a later stage of the media campaign for gay rights … it will be time to get tough with remaining opponents. To be blunt, they must be vilified … Our goal here is twofold. First, we seek to replace the mainstream’s self-righteous pride about its homophobia with shame and guilt. Second,we intend to make the anti-gays look so nasty that average Americans will want to dissociate themselves from such types”
Kirk and Madsen additionally, said:
“The public should be shown images of ranting homophobes whose secondary traits and beliefs disgust middle America,” Kirk and Madsen wrote. To this end, they then suggested that those who oppose the homosexual agenda be linked with images such as the Ku Klux Klan, “bigoted southern ministers drooling with hysterical hatred,” thugs and convicts, and Nazi concentration camps.”
Beyond Today magazine concludes with the following comments:
“It should be obvious that we are beyond this strategy today. The gay community should no longer be considered victims in the United States—and in reality those in the gay movement have become aggressive challengers of traditional values and biblical beliefs on many fronts.”
“This strategy—aided and abetted by sympathetic news media and government agencies—has led to us entering a stage of aggressive attacks by some in the gay community against those who sincerely believe that homosexual behavior violates the laws, instructions and principles of God. Bible-believing Christians are indeed “vilified” and branded as bigots and homophobes.”
” Do rights of freedom of speech, freedom of religious beliefs and freedom of association work both ways? We’re seeing a time in which constitutionally guaranteed citizens’ rights are being stripped away to accommodate new supposed rights invented by various court rulings and government policy.”
Who funds the LGBT campaings ?
Beyond Today, revealed the true source of these funding:
“If you’ve ever wondered why so many American businesses cater to a gay clientele, donate money to support homosexual causes and celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage, it’s because they recognize this simple fact: Homosexual couples, who typically don’t have children, have substantially more discretionary income than families who do.”
Beyond Today added:
“A gay person should not be afraid of a Christian as some hate-monger. True followers of Jesus Christ are to always show love toward others (Matthew 5:44), recognizing that all have sinned and need God’s mercy and forgiveness (Romans 3:23). But this does not mean excusing and accepting sin.
Recall that Jesus didn’t condemn a woman who was caught in adultery and brought before Him (John 8:2-11). But He didn’t say that what she was doing was acceptable either. He told her to “go and sin no more” (John 8:11). Moreover, He had to die to pay the penalty of her sin—and ours.” (Melear, 2015).

“Rick Warren, a Christian Pastor observed that our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do.” https://www.ucg.org/the-good-news/the-gay-agenda-blueprint-a-plan-to-transform-america
