Thought Control Passes
Despite their best efforts, pro-family forces were not able to overcome the pro-homosexual backroom deal in the Senate, losing the vote on Thought Control 68-29 with 10 Republicans voting in favor of Thought Control.
This vote is indicative of the dramatic turn Congress has taken since the last election.
In past years, Public Advocate was able to force the removal of Thought Control from the Defense Authorization Act.
But with Harry Reid in full control of Congress, there is little pro-family forces can do to stop them without your strong and immediate support.
Not only does this bill create a special class of citizens, it comes attached to a bill designed to equip our soldiers. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) gave a strong speech against the morality of this bill.
Here is an excerpt from Senator Jim DeMint's speech regarding the Thought Control bill: "It is very cynical that this bill that funds our soldiers, who are fighting for our Constitution and our country, actually undermines the very principles that they are fighting for."

"It is an outrage," said Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio, "I can't believe so many Senators -- including 10 Republicans -- bent to the underhanded tactics of the Homosexual Lobby."
Here is the list of Republican Senators who voted for Thought Control:
Sen. Christopher Bond [R - MO]: (202) 224-5721
Sen. Susan Collins [R - ME]: (202) 224-2523
Sen. John Cornyn [R - TX]: (202) 224-2934
Sen. John Ensign [R - NV]: (202) 224-6244
Sen. Judd Gregg [R - NH]: (202) 224-3324
Sen. Kay Hutchison [R - TX]: (202) 224-5922
Sen. Richard Lugar [R - IN]: (202) 224-4814
Sen. John McCain [R - AZ]: (202) 224-2235
Sen. Olympia Snowe [R - ME]: (202) 224-5344
Sen. George Voinovich [R - OH]: (202) 224-3353
"A special class of citizens has just been created in our own nation. Public Advocate and our supporters must redouble our efforts to prevent this from leading to the passage of the rest of the Homosexual Agenda," concluded Mr. Delgaudio.
The Defense Authorization Act will now go to Obama for his signature. Please give the White House a call at 202-456-1111 or 202-456-1414 and leave a message asking President Obama to veto the Defense Authorization Act containing the Thought Control bill (S. 909).
It is important to remember that Thought Control is only the #2 piece of legislation on the Homosexual Lobby's radical agenda.
The Gay Bill of Special Rights is widely regarded as the most important component of their Radical Agenda.
Knowing this, Public Advocate and their pro-family supporters must increase the pressure on Congress and immediately mobilize millions more pro-family activists.
Of course, large-scale mobilization costs a great deal of money -- money Public Advocate does not have.
