Digital Network Army — “Truthfilled. Respectful. Relentless.”

Beetle Blogger Joins the DNA!

“It is clear that the social networks online are powerful tools for whichever side can utilize them best.  It’s a digital war, and to win we need to tap into our digital resources. Currently, our views are woefully outnumbered and squelched online.  No one can even see proponent posts without digging because our opponents have squashed then through their sheer numbers and vocal (if not abrasive) comments and reactions.  We need to enter the fray en masse to allow the truth to be heard.  My goal is to prepare our digital volunteers to be honest, respectful, loving, relentless, and pro-traditional marriage rather than anti-gay. “
—DNA Team Captain

Welcome to the Digital Network Army!

Together we can make a crucial difference in how the public views marriage and family issues. We have the potential to become what may be the difference between winning and losing the marriage battle in our country.

Here’s how our system works: Each participant pledges to spend at least 20 to 30 minutes each day working for the DNA. An assignment will be issued from your Team Captain each day via email. A portion of your time will be spent visiting and promoting the assigned posts and videos that support our cause en masse.  As we join together, these key posts will rise to the top where the public will readily see them. The rest of your time will be reserved for visiting your own choice of blogs/networks and making a positive difference.

Why is this important? Because currently our opponents are far more active, numerous, and outspoken online. Their sheer numbers are squashing our viewpoints, removing any ally opinions to forgotten regions where no one will ever discover them unless they dig for them.

We must collectively be relentless. We will be successful, but only if we first educate ourselves on the issues and remain honest, respectful, loving, and pro-traditional marriage rather than anti-gay.

These are not easy goals amidst the fury of the online debate — but please demand nothing less of yourself. There is no reason to let our opponents lower our standards for us. Ignore expletive tangents, respond only to the issues, and retain a tough layer of skin.

As you begin, please secure your personal information online. You may want to take off any reference to your phone number or address (or other personal information – maybe your name or business name) from your own blog and other blogs/social sites. It is up to you how secure you want to be.

Lastly, take courage! We are taking off on an adventure together! We are not alone. This really is a war. Let’s make some serious dents in our opponents’ effectiveness online and have tales of courage, stamina, and strength to share with our progeny.

Truthfilled. Respectful. Relentless. We can make the difference.

Thank you for joining our team.

Sincerely,

DNA Team Captain

    I went to their site, I love the ant theme, it’s so applicable. The media is so arrogant in their dismissal of traditional family values and the reasoning behind it, I think there’s a real need for us to band together. Good idea!

    Yes, I did an interview with the DNA Captain….(Which I’d be happy to do again any time BTW…..!) here’s the link if you want more information on their group: https://beetlebabee.wordpress.com/2008/11/28/dna/

    I really like their new site, it’s grown up a bit since they’ve gone national. The more people participate, the more effective it is. It’s really a great idea.

    Welcome to the army, soldier – one that wages non-violent, but non-complacent war. I have thoroughly enjoyed my membership in the DNA. It is easy to follow through with the simple, daily assignments and very fulfilling to fight side-by-side with others for the defense of traditional family values.

    Yeah, I’ve decided it’s time.

    Does DNA also try to push for a divorce ban? If not, why not? That is probably the number one destroyer of traditional marriage right now.

    Nice try at a straw man redirect dracil, but I’m not biting. Democracy demands that both sides of an issue be told so that educated votes can be made. There is one entire side of this argument that has been largely ignored by the mainstream media.

    The watchdogs are asleep at the wheel by thoughtlessness or design. Either way, the other side must be represented.

    Really? So you don’t think that divorce has become so accepted by the liberal left controlling our society that it requires an equal voice? When’s the last time the mainstream media has reported on the issue of divorce? I find that kinda saddening.

    I’d personally rather push for pro family issues rather than anti divorce ones, though I agree that divorce is a tragedy in the life of children and is destructive to families, I don’t think a ban is the best approach, do you?

    I’m not sure actually. But I do think there should be some sort of penalty for divorce. Maybe require some sort of evaluation for future marriages if you have a divorce. Either people either need to divorce less or stop committing to marriages unless they’re really sure.

    It’s one thing for non-Christians to divorce, but it really makes “till death do you part” rather meaningless as part of sacred vows of a sacred institution doesn’t it? And I think divorce rates are about the same regardless of your religious demographic.

    Have at it my friend. Knock yourself out.
