The Torah view of Alternative lifestyles, Liberalism, and Progressivism

Which liberal and progressive ideas conflict with the Torah? How should Jewish institutions handle LGBT pressures by a member? How does the secular view of sexuality compare to that of the Torah? Should we educate our children about these issues, or keep silent? Should someone with these beliefs and/or practices be distanced? Not given an Aliya?

Is sticking up for our rights a Kiddush HaShem or Chilul HaShem? Is holding a protest the right way? Do we need to strictly comply with secular law, or is there flexibility? What if the enforcement of the laws is discriminatory against observant Jews? What if we disagree with the laws? What if the laws close down our yeshivos, shuls and weddings?
