‘Gay’ plan to disrupt Olympics revealed

‘We are talking about utilizing diplomatic channels to get things into the country’

(WND) An organization that previously documented how state officials in Massachusetts gave children graphic instructions in bizarre homosexual sex acts and has documented the advance of alternative sexual lifestyles now is reporting on a plan by “gay” activists to disrupt the coming Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

 

Officials with MassResistance.com are reporting that an activist for the pro-LGBT agenda, Patrick Burke, addressed a meeting of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association.

 

It was during the “Out on the Playing Field” seminar that Burke said, “We’re going to have three weeks of sustained media presence there. We are going to have out LGBT athletes there. We are going to have very vocal and visible allies there. We’ve spoken with the Canadian and U.S. hockey teams. We’re going to be doing work with both of those teams.”

CINCINNATI — For the second time this summer, a federal judge has ordered the state of Ohio and local officials to recognize the marriage of two men who went out of state to wed.

The order issued Tuesday involves a man from the Cincinnati suburb of Wyoming, Ohio, who died last month. The ruling allows his husband to be listed as his surviving spouse on his death certificate even though Ohio does not recognize same-sex marriages.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Black issued the temporary restraining order the day before William Herbert Ives is to be cremated. Ives and David Michener, who had been a couple for 18 years and were raising three children together, married July 22 in Delaware.
