San Diego Evangelicals Outraged Over Republican
State Assemblyman George Plesica's Endorsement
Of Homosexual City Council Candidate Carl DeMaio

With Virtually No Ties to San Diego City Council District,
DeMaio's Homosexuality & Carpetbagging Antics Make
San Diego Assemblyman Plesica's Endorsement One
Of the Great Acts of Political Prostitution in Recent History

(Political Alert) Numerous Conservative Christian leaders in San Diego County are expressing outrage that a Republican California State Assemblyman has issued a questionable letter of endorsement for a homosexual activist who is campaigning for a seat on the San Diego City Council. The assemblyman, George Plescia, has given a letter of endorsement to Carl DeMaio which is now displayed on DeMaio's campaign website. DeMaio revealed in an April 2007 edition of the San Diego Magazine that he is involved in homosexuality and has announced that he is seeking to replace Brian Maienschein on the San Diego City Council. The district in question, District 5, is clearly the most conservative of all city council districts in San Diego.

Over the last several years Assemblyman George Plescia has used Christian Conservatives to help himself get elected three times to the California State Assembly. From being listed as a supporter of the Faith and Family Broadcast Coalition, as well as an endorser of Protect Marriage, the political initiative to create a state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in California, Plescia has been one of the biggest opportunists in Christian Conservative circles. Yet, like some of the other GOP leaders in California, Assemblyman George Plescia has also become one of the Golden State's great moral hypocrites.

In 2004, Plescia, along with Republican State Senator Mark Wyland, appeared at an event sponsored by the Young Men's Christian Association to pay tribute to Duane Roth, one of San Diego's biggest supporters of embryonic stem cell research. At that event, Plescia and Wyland honored Roth with a resolution for his many "contributions" to the community. The controversy over Plescia honoring Roth pales in comparison to the outrage that his endorsement for DeMaio is now generating.

Assemblyman Plescia is viewed to be so morally weak that even Susan Kennedy, the Democratic lesbian Chief of Staff for Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, recorded one of the most degrading tapes ever made about a Republican leader in Sacramento. This is what Kennedy stated about Plescia in the well-publicized and controversial 2006 tape:

Susan Kennedy, likened the San Diego County lawmaker (Plescia) to a
startled deer and a "Stepford wife."

Priscilla Schreiber, Board President of the Grossmont Union High School District, is one of many San Diego Republican leaders who have noted the increased attacks against conservative GOP family values since Ron Nehring became the San Diego County Republican chairman. When asked about Republicans like George Plescia and Carl DeMaio, who are violating the state's Republican Party platform by promoting homosexual candidates, Schreiber told the James Hartline Report:

"Carl DeMaio is yet another example of priority politics, where money matters
most, even at the risk of loosing any protection of traditional family values.
And it is important to remember that the state party platform has always stood for
protecting the definition of traditional families by banning
the promotion of homosexuality."

Mrs. Schreiber's longtime efforts to protect children in East San Diego County stands in direct contrast to George Plesica and Carl DeMaio. The California Republican Party Platform adamantly opposes the promotion of homosexuality, viewing the radical gay agenda as a threat to the institution of family in the state. Here is what the state GOP platform declares regarding traditional family values:

"Recognizing the traditional model of monogamous heterosexual marriage as the only stable relationship upon which to build a society, we believe that homosexuality should not be presented as an acceptable "alternative" lifestyle in public education and policy."

Priscilla Schreiber was reelected in 2004 to the Grossmont Union High School board in a landslide. In garnering more votes than any candidate had ever gotten for a seat on the board, voters reaffirmed Schreiber's support for traditional family values as they are articulated in the state party platform.

"There has been an ongoing blatant attempt to infiltrate the local Republican Party with supporters of homosexuality, as well as those coming out of the closet, much to the surprise of voters who elect candidates based upon their public positions during their campaigns," declares Mrs. Schreiber. "Families need leaders who are going to protect their values, rather than men coming out of the closet right before an election."

- The Antics of a GOP Carpetbagger -

What makes Carl DeMaio's recent revelations that he is involved in homosexuality even more insulting to the very conservative voters of San Diego's 5th City Council District is the fact that DeMaio just recently moved into their district. According to a February 2006 article in the San Diego Union Tribune, DeMaio was living in District 1 at that time, yet his name was mentioned as a possible candidate running against Donna Frye in the 6th Council District! Some are classifying DeMaio's opportunistic politics as nothing more than political prostitution where the voters are just votes for his own personal agenda.

One thing that voters are demanding in this era of scandals is for political leaders to stop treating them like blind dates. With virtually no ties to District 5 voters, DeMaio's recent move into the district makes Assemblyman George Plesica's endorsement even more suspect.

With some of San Diego's most conservative voters and largest churches, the city's 5th Council District is not likely to give away its valuable council seat to a man who engages in sex with other men. Many are then wondering why is Carl DeMaio really in San Diego and why did he mysteriously pop up as a new resident in District 5? And why is DeMaio seeking to represent a district that he has little, if any, historical ties to? Even more frightening for the district's voters is the concern over the kinds of backroom deals that may have been made to get powerful GOP leaders like George Plescia and Tom McClintock to expend so much political capital on a campaign that is doomed to fail? The explanation for this perverse political riddle may be found in the dark political world of California State Republican Party Chairman Ron Nehring.

Ron Nehring: California's Political NightStalker

If hypocrisy could crown a new king in San Diego, Carl DeMaio would be a real contender for it. To obtain that crown of hypocrisy, DeMaio will first have to wrestle it away from GOP pro-homosexual advocate Ron Nehring. Prior to his recent ascendancy to the state chairmanship of the Republican Party, Nehring earned a reputation as one of the most aggressive opponents of Christian Conservatives in San Diego. Under Nehring's watch as the San Diego County GOP Chairman, nearly every Christian leader within the county's GOP central committees were run out of office. Many Christian leaders simply got fed up with Nehring and did not seek reelection.

Added to Nehring's anti-christian bigotry, is his constant advocacy for gay-friendly candidates like Steve Francis and Michael McSweeney. The extermination of Christian influence within the San Diego GOP leadership was only phase one of an effort that now provides little resistance to the slow introduction of homosexuality within the local party's decisionmaking. In 2005, two critical efforts by Nehring gave the party faithful a look into his immoral schemes. The first effort involved Nehring's attempt to elect radical pro-homosexual Republican mayoral candidate Steve Francis. The second effort occurred when Nehring sent local party vice-chairman Michael McSweeney into a monthly meeting of the anti-christian homosexual group, the Log Cabin Republicans. During that disturbing meeting McSweeney promised that the local GOP would promote homosexual candidates.

DeMaio presents himself in the same immoral mold as pro-homosexual liberal Republican Steve Francis. And parents who are trying to keep their kids away from the dark influences of the radical homosexual movement will find little comfort in DeMaio. Take for example two recent statements made by DeMaio and one can see why parents and concerned voters in District 5 should be very disturbed that DeMaio has recently moved into their district.

In her insightful article for My Local News, Elizabeth Marie Himchak provides readers with DeMaio's description of his historical ties to the Catholic Church:

“The Jesuits took me in,” DeMaio said. “(They) paid for my schooling, paid for my room and board for both high school and college. “I’m very grateful. From that they instilled in me a sense of giving back,” DeMaio added.

If DeMaio can't be loyal to the moral teachings of the church he lays claim to, how can the voters of San Diego expect to trust him to bring a sense of morality to a city government that is in dire need of leaders who believe that strong morals are critical to cleaning out the moral corruption that is plaguing their city?

In a second set of remarks by DeMaio, he demonstrates another disturbing side to his persona that further proves he is disloyal to the teachings of the church that he claims benefited him in his younger years. In a recent interview with San Diego Magazine, DeMaio reveals his involvement with homosexuality. He then goes on to punch Christian voters below the belt by saying that he doesn't think his sexual activities are relevant to voters:

"The fact that I’m gay, I suppose. But at the end of the day, I don’t think it’s very relevant when you consider all the things that are really important to voters."

One thing that San Diego voters have learned in the last few years is that sexual immorality has been disasterous for their city. In 2005, three city councilmen were forced out of office for taking bribes from strip clubs. Now, a man who is involved in homosexuality wants to bring further sexually immorality to the scandal-ridden San Diego city council.

With all of the bribery scandals, the pension thievery, and a city council that angers most voters with their gay pride proclamations, it is apparent that the wealthy elites within the San Diego Republican Party just don't get it. Without addressing the lack of basic morality in the lives of the men and women that the political parties are backing, the city will never be able to mend the broken moral compass that gives directions to its leaders.

It is astounding to some that DeMaio thinks that the thousands of Christian voters in the 5th City Council District feel his having sex with other men is irrelevant. The vast majority of District 5 voters who go to church believe that homosexuality is a grave sin and they do not want their children to have as their role model a man who has sex with other men. To think that conservative voters will support a man who shacks up with other men is political and moral insanity for George Plescia, Ron Nehring and especially for Carl DeMaio.

San Diego City Council Declares War On Christianity As July Is Declared Gay Pride Month

City Council Hearing Turns Into 2nd Civil War

Join Gay Pride Leaders To Declare War On Christianity
And Make July 2007 Gay Pride Month:

To Stand Up For Righteousness During Gay Proclamation Hearing

(JHReport) There are growing signs that San Diego, California is fast becoming ground zero for the American culture war. For the past eighteen years the ACLU has been trying to force the removal of a cross that sits atop the San Diego-based Mt. Soledad Veteran's War Memorial. For the last four years, the San Diego City Council has been engulfed in numerous bribery scandals. Three of the councilmembers, all Democrats, were indicted for taking bribes from the notorious Cheetah's strip club. Councilmen Ralph Inzunza and Michael Zucchet resigned after they were convicted on the bribery charges. The third indicted councilman, Charles Lewis, age 37, died before his trial began.

In addition to the bribery scandals, the anti-christian attacks on religious landmarks, the aggressive campaign to evict the Boy Scouts from San Diego's public parks and the marching of an elementary school in last year's pornographic San Diego Gay Pride parade, all point to a catastrophic refutation of San Diego's reputation as a Christian Conservative city. With San Diego on the brink of declaring itself a morally bankrupt city, many are now beginning to undertand why the conditions were so ripe for the financial crisis that is threatening to implode the city's finances. It may be inevitable that the city is doomed to declare itself financially bankrupt. A growing city employees' pension scandal has left San Diego with a gaping $2 billion+ deficit. In 2004, USA Today defined San Diego and the pension scandal as "Enron By The Sea".

San Diego County is home to over 1,700 churches. On any given Sunday, over two million San Diego County residents will attend church services. Without question, there is a severe plague of apathy and biblical impotency among San Diego's religious community. Whether these two million Christians want to face this harsh reality remains to be seen. What is clear, however, is that on their watch, the two million Christians in San Diego County allowed the City of San Diego to become one of the most corrupt and immoral destinations in America.

The great American Civil War began on April 12, 1861 with the bombardment of Fort Sumter. Without question, America is once again on the brink of a second civil war. When historians write of this 2nd Civil War, they may consider the date of July 17, 2007, as the day when this war officially began.

On Tuesday, July 17, 2007, spectators of the weekly San Diego City Council meetings were able to observe the chasm which so desperately divides the two opposing armies in this new civil conflict. The forces for sexual anarchy sent in San Diego's leading homosexual and lesbian generals to advocate for a citywide proclamation which declares July, 2007 as Gay Pride Month in the City of San Diego. Sponsored by Jerry Sanders, the Republican mayor of San Diego, the proclamation encourages all San Diegans to attend the Gay Pride parade and festival. With a multitude of xxx gay porn companies, male escort services, sexualized transvestites and a history of hiring registered sex offenders, many parents were horrified as they watched Mayor Sanders honor the San Diego Gay Pride organization with a month long proclamation.

Nationally recognized Christian activist James Hartline has been opposing the San Diego gay pride proclamations for five years. Hartline, a former homosexual, now warns families to keep their kids away from the gay pride leaders and their events. "In 1997, I was infected with AIDS. Getting AIDS is what I got out of thirty years of being involved in homosexuality," Hartline tells parents and youth leaders in San Diego.

Hartline organized two events this year to oppose the gay pride celebrations. In 2003, he was fighting the San Diego gay pride movement as a lone soldier for Christ. This year, 140 other Christians joined Hartline at his two events. "We had 100 Christian activists show up at Petco Park to oppose the San Diego Padres Gay Pride event. Another 40 showed up at the San Diego City Council on July 17th," says Hartline. News of Hartline and the other Christians making a stand at the July 17th city council hearing is already being reported on national newswires.

The corruption that has destroyed the ethical foundations of the San Diego City Council was out in full force on July 17th. The actions of Council President Scott Peters towards the Christians in attendance was alarming to say the least. Peters allowed each side of the debate on the proclamation to have fifteen minutes of speaking time. Evidence from the July 17th Gay Pride Proclamation hearing clearly demonstrates that Peters lied about the amount of time that James Hartline used on the clock. Peters denied other Christians the right to speak out against the proclamation based upon his own timekeeping.

"If Councilman Peters is willing to deny Christians the right to speak at city hall, what else is he doing to those he doesn't like or agree with?" warns Hartline.

A review of the video from the July 17th City Council meeting shows that Hartline only spoke for five minutes. Hartline's speech began at the 18:55 mark on the video clock and finished at 23:57, a lapsed time of 5 minutes and two seconds. Yet, after Hartline spoke, Peters specifically stated that Hartline had used up ten minutes of the opposition time. As a result of Peters' actions many people who had requested to speak in opposition to the homosexual proclamation were denied their legal right to speak. Peters did allow a multitude of proponents of the gay pride resolution to speak, but he did not call up any other Christians who had put in speaker's request slips after Hartline.

Slide Time Ruler to 18:25

All three of the Republicans on the San Diego City Council joined the gay pride leaders in their attacks on the Christians who had come to the July 17th gay pride hearing. One Republican leader who sat in the audience during the council vote told the James Hartline Report, "I can't remember a more offensive attack on conservative values than this one by the Republicans on this city council." Three of the councilmen, Democrat Tony Young, Republican Kevin Faulconer and Republican Brian Maienschein, have all mentioned their "faith" when they were seeking Christian votes during their campaigns for the city council.

One Christian leader sitting close to Hartline during the hearing said this about the alledged "Christian" councilmen: "They really are a bunch of cowards."

While the three Republican city councilmen showed grave disrespect towards the gay pride opponents, one Republican woman did have the courage to rise up and confront the anti-christian bigotry that permeated the council chambers during the hearing. Priscilla Schreiber, President of Grossmont Unified High School District, demonstrated a courage that is rarely seen in the male-dominated San Diego Republican Party.

"How can you betray this city's Christian heritage by voting every year for an event that destroys our youth?" asked Mrs. Schreiber. "How can you honor an organization that has a history of hiring pedophiles?" And then looking directly at Councilman Brian Maienschein, Schreiber stated, "Councilman Maienschein, I stood with you at the foot of the Mt. Soledad Cross. I ask you to search your soul as to what you have become. Why are you betraying your previously professed Christianity for a political agenda that is destroying our kids?"

It was Mrs. Schreiber who stood up and confronted Council President Scott Peters when he did not call up other speakers. Because Schreiber confronted Peters, he was forced to allow some of the other speakers. However, because Peters gave false information on the amount of time that Hartline had used up, he did not allow the full compliment of opposing speakers. You can watch the Schreiber-Peters confrontation by sliding the time ruler to 41:15 on the July 17th video archive.

"I am here to stand in the gap to be a voice of sanity to those who have lost their moral way," Schreiber declared. Schreiber was needed on July 17th to counter the lesbian examples of womanhood that were featured by the leaders of the gay pride organization. Gloria Johnson, an avowed lesbian leader within the San Diego Democratic Party, challenged Christians at the council hearing that she was ready to fight them: "Here I am. I'm five feet tall and 102 pounds and I'm ready to go toe-to-toe with you," declared Johnson.

Following on the heels of Johnson's attack on Christianity, came the voices from a large contingent from Concerned Women for America (CWA). The local chapter of Concerned Women for America, which has 7,000 San Diego members, showed up to demonstrate that gay pride anti-family attacks coming from the council were not going to go unchallenged. Newly appointed Director of CWA's Southern Counties, Cindy Sieger, led a well-coordinated presentation before the council. The difference between Sieger's group and lesbian Councilwoman Toni Atkins could not have been more clear. Atkins, who is the main advocate for the promotion of the gay pride resolutions on the city council over the last several years, is the former manager of a number of abortion clinics.

Of the forty Christians who turned out for the July 17th hearing, only two pastors showed up to stand up against the gay pride proclamation. Leo Giovinetti and Rob Cobb, pastors at Mission Valley Christian Fellowship, have a long-standing reputation of encouraging the 1,500 members of their church to go out and make a positive impact on their communities. Giovinetti and Cobb don't just preach involvement, they lead by example. Although Mission Valley Christian Fellowship is America's largest homeless church, Pastor Giovinetti's congregation accomplishes more for Biblical values in San Diego than any of their wealthier mega-church counterparts.

The gross apathy of some San Diego pastors makes the job of James Hartline and his growing team of fellow Christian activists much harder. For example, last week when Hartline led a team of 100 Christians to protest the promotion of gay pride by the San Diego Padres, Miles McPherson of the 7,000 member Rock Church was still having his church attend another baseball game night at Petco Park. When Hartline spoke with one of the executive pastors at the Rock Church about their continued involvement with the Padres even after the church had found out about the gay pride event at Petco Park, the executive pastor rebuked Hartline.

The executive pastor at the Rock Church told Hartline that they were aware of the gay pride event with the Padres. Unbelievably, he then told Hartline, "We could not come up with a consensus on taking action."

"Consensus! Don't you know what the Bible says?" Hartline retorted.

"You are not going to tell us what to do," the pastor responded and then hung up on Hartline. Not one pastor from the Rock Church showed up to help with the rally at Petco Park. Not one pastor from the Rock Church showed up at the city council to stand up for the protection of kids from the gay pride events. Yet, the Rock Church had plenty of pastors show up at previous council hearings when they were attempting to get permits for the mega property that they now have in their grasps and are building a private school on. This is the kind of gross apathy and hypocrisy among church leaders in San Diego that is allowing the radicalized homosexual movement to prevail on issues like the gay pride resolution.

The same can be said about Mike MacIntosh at Horizon Christian Fellowship. MacIntosh has a number of wealthy Republicans who attend his church. Those same Republican church members endorsed and raised money for Mayor Jerry Sanders in his 2005 mayoral campaign. At that time Sanders marched in his eighth gay pride parade. In 2006, longtime wealthy Horizon Christian Fellowship member Larry Stirling endorsed homosexual activist Ralph Denney for the California State Assembly. Once again, MacIntosh refused to confront this utter hypocrisy and anti-biblical activism on the part of his wealthy church donor. Not one pastor from Horizon Christian Fellowship came to stand with the Christians at Petco Park and not one Horizon pastor spoke out against Sanders for his sponsorship of this year's gay pride resolution. San Diego is being destroyed and influential pastors like Mike MacIntosh remain completely silent on the matter of Jerry Sanders and his partnership with the homosexual movement.

Five years ago, there was virtually no oppostion to the city council declaring gay pride week in San Diego. Four years ago, James Hartline was a lone warrior for the cause of Christ at the City Council of San Diego. Oftentimes coming to the council by himself, Hartline was determined to be a voice for righteousness in his city. "God told me to go stand in the gap for His people in my city," says Hartline. During those early council meetings, Hartline was mocked and ridiculed. Since that time, Hartline's city council appearances have turned into big events in the Christian community.

With over 140 San Diegans working with Hartline this year to oppose the gay pride organization and their events, it is clear that James is no longer the lone warrior in his city. Many are beginning to see the makings of a citywide revival coming about as a result of the commitment of James Hartline. "Most of the pastors like Mike MacIntosh who make their rich salaries but will not stand with us to clean up the moral rot in the city's government, will just not be a part of the coming revival. God will use those us who are not fearful of the opinions of man," declares Hartline.

"We have many new events being planned for the upcoming year," says Hartline. "We will prevail in our battle to stop the spread of the pornographic gay pride movement. Goliath fell at the hand of King David. And Gay Goliath will fall at the hands of the new King Davids of San Diego!"

Urgent Action Alert: San Diego City Council To Force Gay Pride Month On Christians, Tues. July 17, 2007

Urgent Action Alert!
~This is the biggest attack on Christian values in the history of San Diego~
Over the past twelve years, the San Diego City Council has forced families to celebrate
a gay pride day or a gay pride week in the City of San Diego. This is always done
with your tax dollars. When a proclamation to declare gay pride week in our city is
approved by the city council, then your tax dollars are spent on law enforcement
during the gay parade and festival. Public funds are then spent on rainbow flags and
banners on city street lights. And the proclamation triggers the indoctrination of
all of our youth into accepting and celebrating homosexuality, lesbianism and
transsexuality via gay pride being a city-approved cultural event.

In 2007, Mayor Jerry Sanders, lesbian Councilwoman Toni Atkins and
pro-abortion Councilman Scott Peters are set to strike their most
horrific and immoral blow yet against the families of San Diego.
The San Diego City Council Is Preparing To Declare
Gay Pride MONTH
in the City of San Diego!
In an incredible attack on the values of San Diego families, these two anti-christian,
pro-gay councilpersons and Mayor Jerry Sanders want to force the entire city of
San Diego to celebrate an entire month of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality,
gay entertainment and gender confusion. With the approval of this proclamation,
the city can then spend your tax dollars on police services at the porn-filled gay
pride parade and festival, and the placement of homosexual banners and
rainbow flags on all city street lights and bus stops for an entire month.
Even worse, for an entire month all young kids in San Diego, whether they are
Christians or Jewish, will be exposed to, and forced to celebrate
all forms of homosexuality,
even though they are raised with an opposite moral standard by their parents.
This is simply an outright attack on parental and religious freedoms!

It Gets Worse!
As you will see in the following copy of the resolution created by Sanders, Atkins
and Peters, the city wide proclamation to celebrate gay pride month in San Diego
also encourages all citizens (this means children and churchgoers) to participate in
the San Diego Gay Pride Parade and Festival. This is the last place the city of
San Diego should be encouraging kids to be! Each year, this filthy parade and
festival is full of pornographic businesses like F-Street Book Store, distribution of
condoms and sexual lubricants and an area called "The Leather Realm" where
classes are taught on S & M Sex.

The following is a copy of the Resolution: R-2007-1278, Item 30, scheduled for a vote on Tuesday, July 17, 2007 at 10:00am:
ITEM-30: 2007 San Diego 33rd Annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month.
Adopt the following resolution:
(R-2007-1278 Cor. Copy)
Recognizing the many civic contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community in San Diego County, and encouraging all people to share in the pride of our City’s diverse citizenry by participating in the 33rd Annual San Diego LGBT Pride community celebration, parade, festival, and arts and culture programs;
Proclaiming July 2007, to be "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month" in the City of San Diego.
Will You Make A Stand For Righteousness at the San Diego City Council?
Please: We Need Your Help!
We need hundreds of Christians to come to the San Diego
City Council on Tuesday - July 17, 2007

Our religious freedoms, our moral rights and the future of our
kids has never been more in jeopardy. God gave us everything
when He gave us His precious Son, Jesus Christ. We must
take that eternal, sacrificial gift and honor God with a stand for
Biblical truth in the City of San Diego. Time is running out!
If we do not change the course of this great moral decline in our
city and our state, then within one year, all Christians will be forced
to accept gay marriages, the forced teaching of homosexuality to
our Christian and Jewish kids in elementary schools and criminal
penalties for speaking out against homosexuality.

Mayor Jerry Sanders has participated in eight gay parades. He thinks
the celebration of a lifestyle that leads to AIDS and early death is a
great reason to party, party, party during the porn-filled gay pride
parade and festival.
With the help of lesbian Councilwoman Toni Atkins and Councilman Scott Peters,
the dark and immoral vision of Mayor Jerry Sanders will be implemented if we
do not make a stand and speak out against this immoral onslaught against our
families. Gay activists may want to march down the streets, half-naked, drunk
and making fools of themselves, but it must not be done with our blessings!

As Christians and Jews, we cannot allow this proclamation to go
unchallenged. We must fight for the future of our kids. Please,
please, please come to the San Diego City Council and fight for
our kids and the future of our city.

The Bible says: "Contend For The Faith!"

Hatemonger At Petco Park Gives All Christians A Bad Name! Watch This Video!

Here is a link to the Petco Park event where this evil man in the "name" of Christianity
showed up and caused us so much trouble.

He was filled with so much hate and started calling those going to the game "stupid idiots" and mocking those with AIDS and started making sexual comments at the Padres fans. Jesus never, ever acted in such a vile manner as this man did.

God's word says that if you have not love you are just a big loud sounding cymbal. If you have not love, then you do not know God, for God is love. It does not mean that God tolerates sin, but He never, ever instructs us to preach in the name of hate like this man and his group did at Petco Park.

We specifically ordered this man and his group to stay away from Petco Park. We knew that he and his group have no concern with saving souls or helping kids. His group is just like the Fred Phelps hatemongers out of Kansas and we wanted no part of that filth. We knew that his group just wanted to use our rally and the spotlight to get attention for their bankrupt message that no one, in the church, or outside of the church, is listening to. Since the Petco Park rally, this group continues to correspond with me to ask me why I wouldn't accomodate their message. My response: I want no part of their evil.

We were at the rally to educate parents on the history of the gay pride organization of hiring sex offenders and that parents should avoid this dangerous gay pride organization. We were not there to call names or pick fights. All of our people wore red t-shirts and were very calm. We had 100 people and none of them attacked in the evil fashion the man in this video did.

The media attempted to paint all Christians there as hateful because of the satanic performance of this individual. This is why we had such a hard time preaching the gospel at Petco Park because of this wicked indiviudal and his group.

If God had not helped us, this evil person would have destroyed our entire outreach for Christ. I cannot remember another more hateful person than the man in this video except the Phelps clan and a few radical gay activists.

SHOWDOWN AT CITY HALL! International News Wires Reporting On Hartline Stand To Protect Kids In San Diego

The world's biggest international news service for family and pro-life issues is now reporting on its wire service the Big Showdown between James Hartline and the San Diego Gay Pride Organization that will occur on Tuesday, July 17, 2007 at San Diego City Council.

San Diego City Council Gay Pride Month Vote to be Protested by Former Gay Activist
Vote to take place this Tuesday

By Elizabeth O'BrienSAN DIEGO, July 13, 2007 ( - Proposed by Mayor Jerry Sanders, Council President Scott Peters, and lesbian council member Toni Atkins, the San Diego City Council is voting on Tuesday to proclaim July 2007 as the official "gay pride" month in the city.

Some San Diego citizens have promised to protest this unprecedented lengthy time of government supported homosexual promotion in a US city. Buried within a 47-page city document, Item 30 encourages the council to adopt the resolution by "Recognizing the many civic contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community in San Diego County, and encouraging all people to share in the pride of our City's diverse citizenry by participating in the 33rd Annual San Diego LGBT Pride community celebration parade, festival, and arts and culture programs."

The resolution finishes by, "Proclaiming July 2007, to be "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month" in the City of San Diego."

An attached document of back-up material also states that this year's honorees include Bob Lehman and Thomas Felkner. According to James Hartline, the founder of California Christian News, both of these men used to own the Bourbon Street gay bar, an establishment that has a notorious history of gay porn stars coming in to do events and promote pornography.
An additional honoree, Mick Rabin, is an active member of "San Diego Scouting for All," an organization that works to force the Boy Scouts to accept homosexuality.

Hartline is organizing a protest at the City Council on Tuesday when the vote takes place. He told that as a former homosexual activist, "I know what it is doing to people's lives and the culture. This whole event is full of triple-x pornography." Despite this fact, he continued, the city resolution is calling for "all people" to participate in the celebrations.

Two years ago, San Diego "gay pride" organizers received a storm of outrage when it was revealed that a number of registered sex offenders were hired to work in the homosexual celebrations. These workers included "Marty the Clown," who was scheduled to entertain at the San Diego Gay Pride Children's Garden.

Hartline commented, "When they were busted over pedophiles, they had a chance to get rid of the pornography because they're trying to sell themselves as a child friendly group.
It would have lessened the accusations against them. But if they got rid of the pornography they wouldn't have sold any tickets."

Such a large and long-lasting celebration is unheard-off for a minority group. According to Hartline's belief, however, the city is trying to "extend the event as long as possible to desensitize people's opposition to homosexuality, so that when the gay marriage issue comes up before the California Supreme court, there will be less opposition to it."

Millions of Americans Are Standing With James Hartline To Boycott the San Diego Padres

Two of the largest family organizations in the United States are asking their millions of supporters to stand with James Hartline in his battle against the gay pride promotion of the San Diego Padres. American Family Association with 4 million supporters and the Thomas More Law Center, the legal group that successfully saved the Mt. Soledad Cross from being torn down by the evil ACLU, have both sent out national alerts today asking their members to boycott the Padres on July 8th to stop the harming of our children by the pornographic San Diego Gay Pride party at Petco Park:
Shame at Petco Park; The Thomas More Law Center Urges Families to Boycott This Sunday’s Padres Game Fri, Jul 6, 2007 ANN ARBOR, MI – On the same evening, the San Diego Padres are enticing families to bring their children to the Padre’s game against the Atlanta Braves with a family day giveaway of “floppy hats;” the Padres are also advertising a homosexual event, “Pride Night at PETCO Park.” As a result, the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan today urged families with children and fans of the San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves to stay away from the game and avoid watching, or even listening to this Sunday’s game involving the two clubs.
On the San Diego Padres official website, the Padres are advertising for an official “San Diego Pride event (sponsored by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community).”
The Padres’ website states, “Pride Night at PETCO Park. ‘Enjoy an evening of Padres baseball at a discounted price… . San Diego Pride supporters and volunteers will be recognized for organizing the group event with a scoreboard welcome and the Gay Men’s Chorus of San Diego will sing the National Anthem.’”
On that same evening, the San Diego Padres are advertising a family day giveaway. Floppy hats with the “Swingin’ Friar” embossed will be given away to all children 14 and younger. This event is sponsored by the Union Bank of California and radio station Magic 92.5 FM. Sunday games are also an attraction for families with children because the Padres typically allow children to run the bases after Sunday games.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center commented, “In my opinion, this confluence of events is not a mistake. The Padres are playing the part of the Pied Pieper leading unsuspecting children into accepting the homosexual lifestyle as normal. Children should not be subjected to the ‘in-your-face’ antics of these radical groups. The Thomas More Law Center wants unsuspecting parents that hope to get their children a free hat and maybe allow their children to run the bases at PETCO to know that they are also walking into a modern day scene of Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Brian Rooney, Director of Communications at the Law Center stated, “These so-called ‘gay pride’ events are often debauched affairs of gross and inappropriate displays of public affection. San Diego’s gay pride event, from all documented accounts, is no different. Families would most assuredly not want to subject their children to this ‘alternate lifestyle’—especially at a baseball game.”
The Thomas More Law Center defends and promotes the religious freedom of Christians, time-honored family values, and the sanctity of human life through education, litigation, and related activities. It does not charge for its services. The Law Center is supported by contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations, and is recognized by the IRS as a section 501(c)(3) organization. You may reach the Thomas More Law Center at (734) 827-2001 or visit our website at

I Am Making My Stand! Are You?

And it should be noted:
Advocates for the gay movement are crying, "What's the big deal? We're just baseball fans and gays and lesbians attending the game!"
That isn't the main problem. There is a big disconnect with gay community leaders. They just don't get it. Why don't they see how offensive their gay pride parades and festivals are to the rest of America? They are so far removed from the rest of America, they actually think that all Americans have no problem with their celebrating pornography around kids!

The San Diego Gay Pride event is full of xxx pornography. In this year's festival they are even having an F-Street porn booth with a porn store to greet festival attendees. This is the gay pride organization that is putting on the event with the Padres at Petco Park with all of the children present.

They just don't get it. Parents do not want their kids exposed to this kind of organization. Why doesn't the Gay Pride organization get rid of the pornography? You know why...because if they got rid of pornography there would hardly be any festival or parade at all. If they got rid of the pornography, no one would come.

In the meantime we will be battling this group until they stop trying to pollute our youth. We will not relent. We will not stop. We will not go away. San Diego Gay Pride: Get your hands off of our kids and their minds!

Citizen's Alert: Elementary School Participating In San Diego Gay Parade - Christians Need To Stand Up At Youth Rally!

How Much Is A Child Worth?
One Man's Battle To Save The Children Of His City.

San Diego Christian Activist James Hartline Leading The Charge
In The Battle To Save Thousands Of Young Kids From The
Immorality Of The San Diego Gay Pride Events.

Battle Includes New Revelations That San Diego Elementary School
Will Once Again Bring Young Kids To 2007 Gay Pride Parade!

(JHReport) Have much is a child's life worth? For the millions of Christians in America, the Bible states that believers are to place a great premium on children. In fact, in the 17th chapter of the Book of Luke, Christ tells his disciples that there is no greater evil than the sin of harming children. For nationally recognized Christian activist James Hartline, protecting the youth of San Diego is the highest priority in his life. That is why Hartline broke down and began to cry yesterday when he found out that the San Diego Cooperative Charter School, a K-8 grade elementary school, has announced that it would once again be participating in the San Diego Gay Pride Parade.

Last year, the school created a national firestorm of controversy when it was reported that they had marched numerous small children in the San Diego Gay Pride parade, thus exposing those minors to xxx gay pornographers, nearly nude male strippers and males escort services. When James Hartline saw that this same charter school had once again marked their school calendar with this July 21, 2007 pornographic gay parade, his heart broke over the abuse of these young kids.

A Community of Vampires: San Diego Gay Activists Demand That
The City's Children Be Handed Over For Indoctrination

Why is it that gay and lesbian activists want to involve so many young kids in their various parades and festivals? The answers to this question are always different depending upon what side of the moral fence the responders are on. One thing is very clear: gay activists can't reproduce, so they must recruit to increase their agenda's numbers. There is always graphic sexuality at every gay pride event. That is a certainty that can always be guaranteed. And the 2007 San Diego Gay Pride Parade and Festival will be no different. On the list of sponsors for the 2007 San Diego Gay Pride events are some of the raunchiest gay porn companies, sexual lubricants and magazines that advertise gay pornography. Thus, the idea that this is the group which is holding a gay pride event at Petco Park during a children's free floppy cap giveaway, makes the stadium an extremely dangerous place for minors on July 8th. With gay pride sponsors like the gay porn company Colt Studios, it is incredibly evil that the San Diego Cooperative Charter School will once again bring children to the 2007 San Diego Gay Pride Parade.

Gay leaders have done everything possible to silence James Hartline so that he cannot warn parents to keep their kids away from Petco Park. San Diego's gay leaders want those kids and they do not want Hartline to get in their way. James Hartline is determined to make sure that the San Diego Gay Pride organization will have to fight through him to get to the kids of his city.

From the time that he was born until he turned fourteen years of age, James Hartline was physically abused by his mother. He knows what it is like to be at the mercy of abusive adults. Last year, when James learned that the San Diego Cooperative Charter School had marched all of those young kids in the gay parade, he vowed to battle those who were harming so many young kids at the charter school. To think that any adult would allow the images of gay pornography, male transvestites, and nearly nude male dancers to be presented to school children, is such an injustice to Hartline that he is willing risk his own life to sound the alarm throughout America.

What started out as one man's clarion call to save the children of his city from an influential group of homosexual activists has turned into a national tidal wave of support. Just three weeks ago, Hartline began to plead with local Christians to help him prevent thousands of pre-teen youth from being exposed to the gay pride celebration during the San Diego Padres baseball game. Hartline's pleas have resulted in thousands of emails and phone calls being made to the San Diego Padres to demand that the team stop the event. World Net Daily and AFA's One News Now are just two of the dozens of major news services who have been reporting on Hartline's efforts. Concerned citizens can listen to Mary Rettig's news report on the protest against the Padres Gay Pride event at One News Now.

In just three short weeks, Hartline's stand for the youth of his city has become frontpage news in San Diego, California, as well as nearly every major Christian and conservative news service in America. This past Sunday, the biggest internet news service in America, World Net Daily, made Hartline's rally on July 8th their number one story. However, not every San Diegan who claims to be a Christian is on the side of protecting children from the predators of the San Diego Gay Pride Parade. Unbelievably, the Pacific Beach United Methodist Church is actually going to be a community partner in the porn-filled gay pride festival. Last year, the Pacific Beach church won top honors for having the best float in the parade, outdoing parade participants RentBoy, a male escort service, and Deja Vu Strip Club.

In this entire battle, there is only one thing that really causes Hartline to fear. It is the fear that no one will show up to stand with him to save the kids during a July 8th rally at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. "If we don't fight to save our kids, than they will have their minds hijacked by leaders of the San Diego gay pride movement," says Hartline. So far, Hartline has not gotten any pastors to agree to come to the rally to stand up for the kids at Petco Park. "The greatest pain in my Christian walk is the refusal by San Diego pastors to join with me at any of my events when I am fighting for our kids. I have sent out dozens and dozens of requests to San Diego pastors and so far, none have agreed to come and join the rally," Hartline pointed out.

On July 8, 2007, either homosexuality or Christian values will prevail on thousands of kids being lured into Petco Park for the free children's floppy cap giveaway. In the last two months the San Diego Padres began to announce their promotion of Gay Pride Day at the stadium after they had already scheduled the children's promotion. It was that terrible conflicting onslaught against the kids by the Padres that forced Hartline to cry out against the injustice being done by the National League's top baseball team.

James Hartline contends that within two or three years, the children of San Diego will be so indoctrinated by the radical homosexual movement that it will be nearly impossible to bring them back to a place of psychological wholeness. "We are in a race against time," says Hartline. "I am begging and pleading with the Christians, the pastors, the evangelists, and the prayer warriors to come to our rally on July 8th to reach out to the parents and kids coming to Petco Park," Hartline states. "Please don't make any excuses for not saving our youth....please, I am begging Christians to give up three short hours of their time to come to Petco Park on July 8th."

Brief Update: Our rally and efforts to inform families about the gay pride event at Petco Park is the Number 1 story on World Net Daily this morning. This is an incredible miracle from God as the Number 1 headline stories on World Net Daily are usually reserved for things like interviews with the president, terrorist attacks and major election results, etc. This is clearly the hand of God and His favor!
