FRC's Prayer Of The Day and Comment

Today the Family Research Council is asking its followers to pray that the nation's judges rule against LGBT equality.
Please pray for our judges, especially on the U.S. Supreme Court, that they will rule aright when they hears these cases. Pray for the lawyers who will argue our position on natural marriage. May pastors and believers across America awaken to what is happening and get engaged! May the Lord intervene to stop these efforts to homosexualize our nation – and to indoctrinate our children with evil! (Ex 23:1-2; Lev 9:15; Dt 1:16-17; 25:1; 1 Sam 8:6-7; Jn 7:24; Rom 1:32; 2 Tim 2:1-8; Jude 7)
The Hate Group, FRC, has daily prayers for their followers and I have no problem with that. I think prayer is good. I pray every day. Mine are more along the lines of helping a sick friend, watching over a friends flight, comfort those in need or fear, helping me find peace and understanding, make the world a better place for all human kind sort of stuff.
I do not pray for made up stuff like "Natural Marriage", whatever that is. Biblical marriage is out of the question. I refer you to the lovely Mrs. Betty Bowers for a quick lesson on that.
I am not in the habit of picking out only the passages I think I will follow while ignoring others or the over all point of the whole word but then I am a pagan and we don't have that many rules or passages to make notations from. We mostly follow the first rule which is "Harm none, do as you will." Notice that "Harm none" comes first and includes yourself.

"efforts to homosexualize our nation" is interesting and I am not sure just what that means.
I am guessing it means to make being gay seem normal/natural, a part of the human condition. I always thought it was and lots of professional people and orgs. say it is. How come when they say it it sounds like a bad thing?

"and to indoctrinate our children with evil!" From Wikipedia, Indoctrination is the process of inculcating ideas, attitudes, cognitive strategies or a professional methodology (see doctrine).[1] It is often distinguished from education by the fact that the indoctrinated person is expected not to question or critically examine the doctrine they have learned.[

Education is not indoctrination according to this definition so teaching children that gay people exist, are the same as everyone else, contribute to the community and history as well as ask questions and come to their own conclusions is not an evil thing.
The indoctrinated person is NOT encouraged to ask questions or think outside the doctrine much like the folks at FRC. They are all told being gay is evil and not to think otherwise.

So who wants to "indoctrinate" who?
Have a great day and Blessed Be.
