My aunt was on the world’s first women’s traveling basketball team when James Naismith introduced the game to America, and my cousin is one of the most brilliant intellects in our family.

Both also spent their time with members of the same sex. We always enjoyed visits with them, but never knew if they were gay because sex should be a private matter.

But times are changing. Gay rights leaders are using the media and politics to “come out” and declare war on moral principles vital to our nation’s survival.

The Supreme Court will soon decide whether the people can affirm God’s institution of marriage as between man and woman. Our president has already refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act passed by Congress. He has also mandated the military to accept openly gay soldiers.

As freedom and morality crumble, movie producers seem to have a premonition about our future. But history and religion already provide a clear blueprint.
