Same-Sex Marriage
and Homosexuality in General

The people who believe that children should be raised by a father and a mother are now called "bigots".  The people who believe that homosexuality is a sin are now facing a flood of Hollywood propaganda, and their children are being taught to accept homosexuality as normal in the public schools.

Homosexual activism is one of the main components in any discussion of our rapidly deteriorating American culture.  Until 1973, homosexuality was on the American Psychiatric Association's list of mental disorders.*  (Has psychiatry changed, or it is merely a reflection of the modern political climate?)

Homosexuality is especially repugnant because it is being proudly promoted by militant activists.  Even in Sodom and Gomorrah, they didn't have parades to show off their sin.  And why do you suppose Sodom and Gomorrah were firebombed by God himself?  Throughout 6,000 years of recorded history, homosexuality was universally recognized and condemned as perversion -- until the last half of the 20th century, when it was incrementally popularized by television:  first as a humorous and harmless aberration, then as an "alternative lifestyle," and more recently as a normal and natural way of life.

Laws written to punish "hate crimes" have been put in place to prohibit public denunciation of homosexuality and eliminate reasoned rebuttal.  Canada is way ahead of the United States on this path.  The prosecution of hate crimes will expand to include all dissent and rhetoric opposing homosexual behavior, on the internet, in print, and especially in church pulpits.  In other words, web pages like this one will soon be illegal.

The acceptance of homosexuality as normal behavior is merely a tool in an ongoing campaign to eliminate Christianity.  Surprisingly, those who advocate homosexuality have no quarrel with Islam, which is completely unforgiving of homosexuals.  It's all about outlawing the free exercise of Christianity.

To make this page load more quickly, the information about same-sex marriage, and the proposed Constitutional Amendment to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, excluding all other combinations, has been moved to this page.

Subtopic:  Same-sex marriage activists lash out at Chick-Fil-A.

The Bible clearly condemns all sexual behaviors outside of marriage between one man and one woman.   Homosexual behavior is explicitly condemned in both the Old and New Testaments as an abomination and a violation of God's standards for sexuality. We oppose the normalization of sodomy as well as cross-dressing and other deviant sexual behaviors in our culture.



The Cross Beats The Stolen Rainbow.  The sweet rainbow image has been violated, raped by the deluded and fraudulent, and it now serves too often as a garish signpost for slavery to grave homosexual sin.  It's clear God did not intend for the rainbow to represent rebellion, iniquity and division.  So how did this precious symbol become the banner, with few objections, for human depravity, lust, defiance and heresy?

Narcissus Revises Christianity, Makes It Liberal.  Nowhere in the entire Bible is there any positive reference to same-sex activity, yet there are numerous vilifications of same-sex activity.  Jesus does tell us to engage in sex — with the opposite sex.  Jesus laid down a specific model for marriage in Matthew 19:4-12, referring back to Genesis and the fact that male and female were created for permanent unity as one flesh.  To those raising caveats, Jesus makes clear that if people cannot respect that model, they must live as a "eunuch" (Matthew 19:12) and have no marriage or sexual relations at all.  In addition, Jesus describes two sexual sins (adultery and sexual impurity) as "defilement" even if only spoken (Matthew 15:19).  The other defilements are evil thoughts, murder, theft, slander, and blasphemy.  Given the myriad references outside the four gospels labeling homosexuality defilement, abomination, unnatural, etc. — would you, if you felt same-sex desires, be willing to gamble your salvation on the pro-gay interpretation of Jesus?

Yes, LGBT Activists Want to Punish Christian Conservatives.  Call me paranoid if you like, but I'm simply quoting what Tim Gill, the foremost LGBT political donor says in his own words.  "We're going into the hardest states in the country," he declares.  "We're going to punish the wicked."  That means Christian conservatives.  In short, if you won't comply with LGBT activism, be it as a minister or as a businessperson, you will be punished.  That is Gill's goal, and to deny it is to be in denial.

How the Left Hijacked the American Psychiatric Association and Normalized Personality Disorders.  The evidence is clear — the American Left succeeded in lobbying the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to eliminate some of the sexual identity disorders from their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). [...] With transvestitism finally voted out of the DSM, in June 2015 LGBT rights groups had one urgent agenda item for President Barack Obama:  End the ban on transgender people serving in the military.  It wasn't that transgender people were straining red rope barriers, lining up at recruiting stations to serve in the military in a rush of abject patriotism; no, acceptance into the military allowed transgenders free government-paid sexual reassignment surgery.  No longer was transvestitism considered a mental disorder, it was now considered a medically correctable condition, like a cleft lip and palate.  Medically-correctable conditions like cleft lip and palate correct physical birth defects.  Sexual identity disorders are not physical birth defects but mental defects.

Everyday Snowflakes.  [O]ur demand that incompatible desires be met at the same time imposes strange obligations on others.  I first thought about this during the early years of the AIDS epidemic, when it was demanded of us that we should believe incompatible things simultaneously, for example that it was simply a disease like any other and that it was a disease of unprecedented importance and unique significance; that it could strike anybody but that certain group were martyrs to it; that it must be normalized and yet treated differently.  For example, tests for it alone of all the thousands of ills that flesh was heir to[,] had, by legal prescription, to be preceded by pre-test counseling.  It was a bit like living under a small version of a communist dictatorship, in which the law of noncontradiction had been abrogated in favor of dialectics, under which all contradictions were compatible, but which contradictions had to be accepted was a matter of the official policy of the moment.

Judge Forces Prison To Provide Hormone Therapy To A Transgender Dude Named Sparkles Wilson.  A federal judge has ordered officials at a taxpayer-funded county prison in Pennsylvania to provide — and foot the cost for — hormone therapy treatment for transgender inmate Steven Fritz, a man who longs to become a woman and who prefers to go by the name Sparkles Wilson.  Judge Robert D. Mariani issued the order late Friday [7/14/2017], reports The Scranton Times-Tribune.  Mariani's ruling comes after Fritz had filed a $1 million-plus lawsuit alleging that he will suffer physical harm and mental trauma if he does not continue receiving regular estrogen infusions.

Army Training Tells Soldiers Not to Gossip About Transgender Troops.  The United States Army's training for how to handle transgender issues instructs troops not to gossip about male soldiers who identify as female.  The hour-long mandatory training is being issued in response to the Obama administration's directive to integrate transgender soldiers into the military.  Last week, Secretary of Defense James Mattis delayed the Obama policy by six months.  The Army is still moving forward with its transgender training, which is conducted in the morning in place of physical training, the Federalist reported.

The Left's Breaking Point?  First, it must be understood up front that in the grand scheme of things "transgender" people constitute a statistically insignificant portion of the population.  They're so exceedingly rare as to make almost any public-policy or political argument about their treatment by society a sideshow in a true sense.  We're not talking about 10 percent of the population who suffers from "gender dysphoria," or even one percent.  We're talking about a small fraction of one percent.  There may be more Amish people than transgender people.

How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated the Field of Pediatrics and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse.  Transgender politics have taken Americans by surprise, and caught some lawmakers off guard.  Just a few short years ago, not many could have imagined a high-profile showdown over transgender men and women's access to single-sex bathrooms in North Carolina.  But transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws.  It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us — children — and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community.

Global elites celebrate divorce of birth records from biology.  What is it about "gender issues" that drives the media/political elites mad?  The government of Canada handed gender activists the crucial precedent they need. [...] So serious are the issues of child abuse here that I must put them aside, possibly for another time.  I want to confine myself to the manner in which what has to be called fantasy has permeated the ruling class when it comes to the denial of biology.  Now, it must be kept in mind is that this is an identity card, not a birth certificate.  That struggle is coming.

Taxpayers Have Now Spent $3.5 Million to Find Out Why Lesbians Are Obese.  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has now spent over $3.5 million to determine why the majority of lesbians are obese.  The project, now entering its fifth year, received another grant worth $658,485 this summer.  The total funding for the research is now $3,531,925.  Funding has more than doubled since the study was first revealed in 2013.  Since, the study that is examining why three-quarters of lesbians are obese, but gay men are not, has survived sequester cuts, and continues to produce results such as the discovery that gay men have a "greater desire for toned muscles" than straight men.  Another scientific paper associated with the research concluded that lesbians have lower "athletic-self esteem" that may lead to higher rates of obesity.

Masterpiece Cakeshop Is Fighting for the First Amendment.  For one thing, no matter how many times people repeat it, the case isn't about discrimination or challenging gay marriage.  But when the news first broke, USA Today, for example, tweeted, "The Supreme Court has agreed to reopen the national debate over same-sex marriage."  The headline (and story) on the website was worse; it read, "Supreme Court will hear religious liberty challenge to gay weddings."  Others similarly framed the case.  (And, don't worry, "religious liberty" is almost always solidly ensconced inside quotation marks to indicate that social conservatives are just using it as a facade.)  There is an impulse to frame every issue as a clash between the tolerant and the closed-minded.  But the Masterpiece case doesn't challenge, undermine or relitigate the issue of same-sex marriage in America.  Gay marriage wasn't even legal in Colorado when this incident occurred.

It's okay to decorate a police car with rainbow flags, but not Bible verses.  It's permissible in the United States to decorate police cars with rainbow flags to celebrate gay pride, but it's not permissible to decorate police cars with Bible verses honoring law enforcement officers.  The Houston Police Dept. is debuting a "Pride Car" for the city's gay pride parade, the Houston Chronicle reports.  Police Chief Art Acevedo is downright giddy about the new rainbow cruiser and the parade.

The BBC Thinks Pedophilia Is Just Another "Sexual Orientation".  The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is playing with fire by allowing an anonymous author to publish articles on its platform that aim to minimize the utter depravity of pedophilia.  Similar to what the far left publication Salon tried to do several years back (along with The New York Times), the BBC seems to agree with this author that pedophilia isn't necessarily a disorder to be treated with disdain, but rather a sexual orientation like homosexuality that simply requires "help."  It wouldn't be the first time that the BBC has entered the ring on the wrong side of the issue, having once employed a popular television personality by the name of Jimmy Savile who was reported to have sexually abused at least 500 young boys and girls, as well as engaged in necrophilia, or sex with dead bodies.  The long-haired, odd looking goofball of a man always seemed off to many who knew him, and yet the BBC apparently kept him on its payroll until his death in 2011.

Rights of Conscience Besieged by Sexual Activists.  Mississippi's House Bill 1523 establishes badly needed protections for those Americans whose faith forbids them to participate in same-sex wedding ceremonies or to treat a person's gender as a matter of preference rather than an immutable, God-given characteristic.  The law precludes the state from taking discriminatory actions against those who reject the latest fruits of the sexual revolution — who choose instead to live in light of the knowledge that God created people "male" or "female," and to abide by the timeless moral law reserving sexual intimacy for the permanent, exclusive bond of marriage between a man and a woman.  The statute also creates a legal defense for citizens who refuse to violate these core beliefs.  The plaintiffs who challenged the statute argued that they are "stigmatized" by the very existence of these religious tenets.  I wonder if they've stopped to consider the "stigma" experienced by devout individuals who have, due to a sickening erosion of First Amendment principles, actually been prosecuted for refusing to forfeit their faith to someone else's ideas about human sexuality.

Lawmakers in New York, D.C. Propose Third Sex on Driver's Licenses.  Lawmakers in New York and Washington, D.C., this week introduced two bills proposing a third sex field on local driver's licenses and ID cards.  The moves comes just days after Oregon made history as the first state to expand its own ID cards beyond just male and female — adding an "X" option for people who identify their gender as non-binary, or who want to opt out of gender identification altogether.  New York Assistant Speaker of the House Felix Ortiz introduced his legislation on Monday [6/19/2017], saying it acknowledges those who are "outside the stereotypical gender binary of male or female."

The Editor says...
The "gender binary" is not a stereotype, it's biology.  Every person in the world has male chromosomes or female chromosomes.  Only the most poorly educated do not know that there is no third sex.

Trump to prosecute schools that fail to embrace transgender lie.  The state of Oregon recently made news by becoming the first state to allow residents a third gender option on their driver's license or state identification.  While this decision to allow gender-science deniers the ability to identify as neither male or female is being hailed as evidence of Oregon's aggressive leadership, they may find themselves playing catch-up by the time Trump is through.

Rainbow crosswalk
LGBT Community Now DEMANDING Permanent 'Rainbow Crosswalks' In Cities Across The Country.  LGBTQ Nazis across many cities in the country are calling for city officials to use taxpayer money to fund "rainbow crosswalks" to "honor the LGBTQ community."


Army's transgender policy includes guidelines on male pregnancies.  The Army has begun mandatory transgender sensitivity training for soldiers.  The training covers everything from "transfemale" soldiers to transgender shower etiquette to dealing with a male soldier who becomes pregnant. [...] "That pregnancy scenario is beyond words," Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty executive director Ron Crews told me.  "This is an example of how this social policy can be used simply to promote personal agendas at the expense of taxpayers with no regard for being what the military is all about."

US top court rejects 'gay conversion' therapy ban challenge.  The US Supreme Court on Monday [5/1/2017] left intact California's ban on "gay conversion" therapy aimed at turning youths under age 18 away from homosexuality, rejecting a Christian minister's challenge to the law asserting it violates religious rights.  The justices, turning away a challenge to the 2012 law for the second time in three years, let stand a lower court's ruling that it was constitutional and neither impinged upon free exercise of religion nor impacted the activities of clergy members.

Dems Push to Criminalize Treatment of Psychosexual Illnesses.  The slippery slope couldn't get much steeper.  First, we were told to tolerate sickness.  Soon, we will be forbidden by federal law to treat it: [...] [Senator Patty] Murray yelps about a "hateful, damaging agenda" that will oppress those who suffer from psychosexual derangements "because of who they are or who they love," as if allowing people to seek treatment for disease is somehow oppressing them — even though the very serious disease involved here frequently leads to depression, suicide, self-mutilation, AIDS, et cetera. [...] If tyranny, depravity, and sickness appeal to you, by all means vote Democrat.

Conversion only goes one direction?
Senate Democrats Reintroduce Bill to Ban Conversion Therapy Nationwide.  Democratic lawmakers reintroduced a bill on Tuesday [4/25/2017] that would ban conversion therapy nationwide, a controversial practice that seeks to change a person's sexual orientation or gender identity.  The practice is currently banned in six states and in the District of Columbia.  The Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act, filed by Senators Patty Murray of Washington and Corey Booker of New Jersey, constitutes a renewed effort from Congressional Democrats to ban conversion therapy after a Republican majority let the bill die without a hearing last year.

The Editor says...
If homosexuals are "born that way," as most of them insist, then how is conversion possible at all?

There Are No Homosexuals Or Transgenders.  If you are going to win an argument, you must get down to the operating assumptions of what's being argued.  We first heard that homosexuals were born that way, just like heterosexuals are born with desires for those of the opposite sex.  While numerous scientific studies have been done to find a genetic link, nothing is conclusive.  And even if there were a genetic link, it would not mean that the behavior was either normal or moral.  There are males and females.  People who engage in same-sex sexuality do not become a new sexual category.  There is no third gender.  The same is true of people who identify as transgender.  It's all made up.  These new categories of gender and sexuality are social constructs.

Glamorization of Transsexual Derangement Ruins Young Lives.  Gender confusion is normally temporary; the damage inflicted by hormone blockers is not.  Many chemically deformed children go on to receive horrific sex-change surgery.  Unsurprisingly, the attempted suicide rate among transgenders is not far short of 50% — and no, this is not due to "discrimination," liberal dogma notwithstanding.

Could sodomy be to blame?  Could promiscuity be to blame?
Syphilis surges in Philadelphia.  Could mobile apps be to blame?  Syphilis, on the rise across the United States for more than a decade, surged in Philadelphia last year, a worrisome signal that yet-to-be reported national numbers might reflect a similar pattern.  Infections rose 36 percent in 2016, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health reported Wednesday, driven largely by men who have sex with men.  National numbers lag a year behind, but other big cities are experiencing similar spikes, said Caroline Johnson, acting deputy commissioner, who oversees disease control.  "It's going on all over," she said.

An Atlanta Theater Faces Criticism for Gay Versions of Bible Stories.  The work is an alternate version and comedic sendup of stories from the Old Testament, presented through the eyes of a gay couple named Adam and Steve and a lesbian couple named Jane and Mabel.  It was written by Paul Rudnick and premiered Off Broadway in 1998. [...] The Out Front Theater decided it would do its own rendition of it about a year ago.  However, on March 27, emails, phone calls, letters and Facebook messages blasting the decision started pouring in.

Obergefell's Toxic Judicial Legacy.  The cultural, legal, and political consequences of establishing a right to same-sex marriage have dominated discussions regarding Justice Kennedy's Obergefell decision.  Will religious institutions that oppose same-sex marriage lose their tax-exempt status?  What will happen to vendors whose consciences prohibit them from participating in same-sex weddings?  How and when will schools address same-sex marriage?  Those consequences are important and merit serious discussion.  However, another aspect of the case — Justice Kennedy's instructions regarding judges' authority to create new "rights" — will prove equally important in the long run.  In Obergefell, Justice Kennedy did far more than merely discover a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.  He wrote that judges have an ongoing "duty" to identify and protect new "fundamental rights."  He maintained that judges should institute new rights whenever their "reasoned judgment" suggests that it is appropriate to do so.

Gilbert Baker, inventor of gay rights rainbow flag, dies aged 65.  Gilbert Baker, a San Francisco-based activist and artist best known for creating the rainbow flag representing gay rights, has died at the age of 65. [...] No details were immediately available on the cause of Baker's death or where he died.

Berkeley killing renews debate over gender pronouns.  Pablo Gomez Jr. was a University of California, Berkeley, senior majoring in Latino studies and a prominent campus activist when authorities say he stabbed to death a popular elementary-school teacher.  Soon, the crime that police described as "very brutal and unusual" in a city that reported just two homicides last year was sucked up into the debate over gender identity when it was reported that Gomez preferred to be called "they" rather than "he."

Language Police At Fancypants College Deem The Word 'Homosexual' Offensive Now.  Emerson College, a fancypants school dedicated solely to communication and performing arts, has officially deemed the word "homosexual" to be offensive.  "Use gay or lesbian when describing people who are attracted to members of the same sex," school officials instruct in the guide.  "Avoid the use of homosexual and homosexual relationship."  The guide does not appear to provide any reason for this rule in its 1,440-word "inclusive language" guide.

Transgenderism and Cancer:  Every cell in the human body has a sexual fingerprint in the sex chromosome (allosome) pairs.  The born male has a XY pair.  The born female an XX.  These chromosomes do serve a function beyond mere reproduction. [...] Protein synthesis, so necessary for life, is controlled by these chromosomes.  We would be foolish not to conjecture that Y chromosomes were not designed to act properly in cell floating in a bath of female hormones; neither an XX pair in cell floating under a bath of male hormones.  Since these hormones might conceivably cause cells to go awry in protein production, as well as in cell reproduction, we should not be surprised to see unusual problems of transgenders with cancers.  Add in that transgenders, even after surgery, will retain residue tissue unique to one gender, and noting that those specific tissues will be subjected to hormone levels they were not designed to process, and the possible outcomes become frightening.

How the Media Create the Culture.  In the February 2017 issue of Family Circle, the advertisement right after opening the cover of the magazine shows two interracial men resting together on a couch.  One sports a tattoo on his arm and they are in a home setting with the words "All homes are created equal."  The advertisement comes from IKEA and, clearly, the ad is about much more than the listed $399 price tag for the Hennes glass-door-cabinet.  It involves the acceptance of tattoos, a wholehearted acceptance of gay relationships, the distinct possibility of a same-sex marital status, the importance of saving the environment through sustainability, making dreams come true in all arenas of life, and, ultimately, love and affection.

Coca-Cola serves up gay-friendly ad for all genders, generations.  Soft drinks maker Coca-Cola Co has launched a gay-friendly ad featuring a brother and sister vying for the attention of a handsome pool boy in the campaign that has won praise for diversity and inclusion.  "Sibling rivalry never looked more inclusive," Out Magazine said of the commercial that debuted last week.  Marketing Week also approved.  While gay-themed movies and television shows are commonplace, advertising has been slower to embrace same-sex couples, especially among marquee brands.

If Child Sex Is More Common Among Gay Men, Are We Okay With That?  At some point we are going to have to address two horrifying subtexts from two recent public pseudo-scandals:  one, is there a child sex problem in the gay male community?  Two, is our society essentially tolerant of it?  That seems to be the nauseatingly reasonable conclusion one could reach after the events of the past week involving provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos and actor-activist George Takei.

Our Hawkish 'World War T' Elites.  It never seems to occur to these elites that the Obama administration badly overreached by effectively federalizing bathroom and locker room policy.  Do they really think that it's so obvious that people should agree to let sexually mature teenage males into the bathroom and locker room with their daughters?  Do they really think that this is the proper role for the federal government?

DNC Transgender Spox Turns Into Stuttering Mess When Tucker Asks About Science.  "Let's move from the politics to the science," Carlson said to Zac Petkanas, Democratic National Committee senior advisor, launching into a series of questions about the implications of allowing people to determine their sex.  "There's no biological anchor to sex anymore.  It's all determined by the individual," he said.  "So my obvious question for you is, how do I know if a person's male or female?  Is there some absolute standard people have to meet to be male or female, other than what they say?"  "One's gender identity is enough to show what gender they are," Petkanas replied.

I'm Sorry, But Caitlyn Jenner Is a Man Wearing a Dress.  I do not write these words lightly, and there is not an ounce of mockery or, God forbid, hatred in my heart when I say that Caitlyn Jenner is a man wearing a dress.  I am simply speaking the plain and obvious truth, as politically incorrect as that truth might be right now. [...] So then, to avoid all ambiguity:  No, you do not get to choose your gender; no, gender is not determined by the level of your personal enlightenment; no, your gender does not change simply because you announce that it has changed; and no, it is not good science to allow people to change their sexual identity on their birth certificates.  In fact, there is nothing scientific about that at all.

Why doesn't anyone want to wrestle with a girl who takes male hormones?  A question for my female readers:  if you took male hormones, would you have trouble finding anyone to wrestle with you?  It's not an idle question.  In Texas a young girl wrestler who is taking male hormones is prevented from wrestling with boys, and is forced to wrestle with other girls.  But even the girls don't want to wrestle with the "bearded lady", leaving no one at all to tussle with her hunky masculine feminine body.

Bathroom Humor:  For mainstream media, the transcending issue is transgender people.  There were scores of pressing queries for the White House press corps to put to presidential spokesman Sean Spicer at Wednesday's [2/22/107] daily briefing:  President Trump's new immigration restrictions, relations with Mexico, China and Russia, tax reform, ObamaCare, the fight against Islamic terror.  So what was the first question from the D.C.-based journalists in attendance?  Bathrooms.  As Bellwether noted last week, several state legislatures were dismayed, during the closing year of the Obama administration, to receive a letter from the Departments of Justice and Education instructing them to let students who claim to be transgender use whatever bathrooms, locker rooms and showers they want, based solely on which gender they feel they are.  States that refused to comply were threatened with a cutoff of federal funds.

When Is a Fact Not a Fact?  The alt-left has been hard at work trying to undermine our confidence in the facts.  They want us to ignore the facts, to refuse to let the facts or the results obtained by an experiment or by the market influence our judgment.  This is the first step toward mind control.  Today, they have convinced a large number of people that a human being with XY chromosomes and a male genital apparatus is — if he so believes — a female.  If you accept that, you are on the way to accepting that beliefs supersede reality.

Why are effeminate men attracted to electric cars?  I think, like some ladies, effeminate men want a car that's small and petite.  Electric cars are much smaller than normal gas-powered vehicles in the same price range.  They often have smaller steering wheels, so men with smaller hands can more easily grip them.  Another factor is that effeminate men are used to being cowed by more aggressive, masculine men, and their choice of car also reflects that.  They choose a little lightweight vehicle, which, if it wants to survive, has to wiggle out of the way of larger cars (driven by masculine men) in traffic.  Effeminate men, used to being dominated in person, prefer a car that allows them to also be dominated in traffic.

Judge Who Will Rule on Trump Travel Order Won ACLU 'LGBT Award'.  Judge Michelle T. Friedland, who is on the three-judge panel that will rule on President Donald Trump's executive order aimed at stopping terrorists from traveling to the United States, won the ACLU of Southern California's LGBT Award in 2009, according to the Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont.  "She received the President's Pro Bono Service Award in 2013 from the State Bar of California and the LGBT Award from the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California in 2009," Leahy said in the U.S. Senate on April 10, 2014, stating his approval of Friedland's confirmation to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

DNC boots candidate from chairman's race for criticizing Ellison's Islamic faith.  The Democratic National Committee is kicking a candidate out of the chairmanship race after he told The Hill that Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) should not be the party's next leader because he is a Muslim.  In a Jan. 5 email to The Hill, Vincent Tolliver, a former House candidate in Arkansas, said that Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, should not be chairman because of Islamic positions on homosexuality.  "His being a Muslim is precisely why DNC voters should not vote for him," Tolliver wrote.  "Muslims discriminate against gays.  Islamic law is clear on the subject, and being gay is a direct violation of it.  In some Muslim countries, being gay is a crime punishable by death."

California Lawmakers Want 'Third Gender Option' for Drivers' Licenses.  Legislation introduced in California would create a third gender option on drivers' licenses and expedite the process for individuals to change their sex on their birth certificate without undergoing a sex change.  The "Gender Recognition Act," sponsored by state senators Toni Atkins of San Diego and Scott Weiner of San Francisco, would add "nonbinary" to the list of male and female genders on state identification documents.

LGBT groups want halt to Utah school laws involving homosexuality talk in schools.  A pair of gay rights advocacy groups said Thursday [1/26/2017] a judge should halt Utah state laws that discriminate against LGBT students by restricting talk about homosexuality in schools.

The accused pedophile behind the 'bathroom bills'.  Accused pedophile, "mega-Obama-bundler" and long-time prominent fixture of the radical left, Terry Bean, is responsible for the bathroom bills sweeping America.  If not for Bean's "affluenza," it is quite likely that the 68-year-old would be in prison today for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy in an Oregon hotel room in 2013 with his then-lover Kiah Lawson, who was 25 at the time.  As reported at Oregonlive, Bean "had offered the boy at least $200,000 to settle the case."  Terry Bean is the co-founder of several radical groups posing as civil rights organizations.  One of these organizations, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), created the template for the bathroom bill ordinances sweeping the nation.

Lesbian couple hired to co-pastor D.C. church.  A historic church in the heart of the nation's capital has hired a married lesbian couple as co-pastors.  Calvary Baptist Church in northwest D.C. announced the hiring of Sally Sarratt and Maria Swearingen on Jan. 8 during morning worship, where they were approved by the congregation.  "We have found it so easy to fall in love with Calvary and its longstanding commitment to be a voice of justice and compassion for those who perpetually find the wholeness of their humanity disregarded and maligned," the pastors said in a press release issued by the church.

Jersey City is 'Queerest City in America'.  Step aside New York, San Francisco and Miami:  Jersey City, New Jersey, has been given the title of the "Queerest City in America."  Campaign's municipal equality index, according to "The Advocate," the oldest and largest LGBT publication in the nation.

Radical Queer Activist Arrested In Murder Of Woman At UC-Berkeley.  A radical left-wing activist who attends the University of California, Berkeley is the prime suspect in a fatal stabbing, and all one of his friends cares about is that he's labeled by his preferred pronoun in news articles covering the crime.  Pablo Gomez Jr., 24, is suspected of stabbing one woman to death in Berkeley on Friday [1/6/2017] and injuring another in a separate incident.  He was arrested by police in Burbank on Saturday afternoon [1/7/2017].

IBM unveils rainbow logo in solidarity with LGBT community.  IBM has unveiled a new logo that incorporates the rainbow pride flag as a show of solidarity with the LGBT community.  The logo will be used in conjunction with diversity-focused IBM programs and initiatives, BM's Chief Diversity Officer Lindsay-Rae McIntyre said in a news release Friday [1/6/2017].  She said the new symbol is a demonstration of the company's continued advocacy for nondiscrimination workplace policies.

Researchers splashed out £50,000 of taxpayers' on study into toilet signs that won't offend transgender users.  A £50,000 study into public toilets has recommended scrapping the use of 'ladies' and 'gents' as they might offend transgender users.  Researchers suggested the 'discriminatory' terms could be replaced with 'toilets with urinals' and 'toilets without urinals'.  Meanwhile facilities for disabled people could be described as 'larger toilets with grab bars', according to the Sun.

Transgender man sues Catholic hospital in Paterson for refusing hysterectomy.  A transgender man sued a Roman Catholic hospital in New Jersey on Thursday [1/5/2017] after he says it cited religion in refusing to allow his surgeon to perform a hysterectomy procedure he said was medically necessary as part of his gender transition.

The Editor says...
To prove that such an operation is "medically necessary," one would first have to prove that his/her sex-change was necessary.  Indeed, it is not necessary.  It is a choice that he/she made.  Any controversy resulting from that choice was completely avoidable.  Moreover, there are lots of other hospitals in New Jersey from which he/she can freely choose.

Obama's homosexual bundler arrested for child rape.  A "bundler" is someone who not just donates money to a politician or political campaign, but solicits and "bundles" donations from other donors into a substantial sum.  As such, bundlers perform an important service for politicians.  If a "bundler" for Trump is arrested for pedophilia, it would be all over the MSM, aka the Fake Media.

Christianity 101: Why Transgenderism and Homosexuality Are Incompatible With the Faith.  It is amazing how many people want to selectively quote a Bible they disagree with and use a Lord they don't believe in to decry Christians standing for their faith.  But the reality is that no matter how many times people try to twist the Greek and Hebrew, the truth is that transgenderism and homosexuality are not compatible with Christianity any more than any other sin is.  And it is for a very basic reason:  God does not change.

Psychiatry Professor: 'Transgenderism' Is Mass Hysteria Similar To 1980s-Era Junk Science.  Consider the remarkable phenomenon of transgenderism.  A disorder of gender identity that afflicts a minuscule number of Americans has become a polarizing cultural cause celebre.  Its influence — in capturing public attention and demanding social change — has been extraordinary, out of all proportion to the numbers of the gender-dissatisfied.  While the political left has fully embraced the transgender agenda as a "civil right" opposed by only the bigoted and hateful, many people see the movement as a concerted attack on traditional social mores and customs, an "in your face" assault on conventional standards, practices, and morality.  Clearly, the transgender phenomenon is the tip of the spear of the LGBT movement, greatly energized by the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage that includes in the definition of liberty the right of people to "define and express their identity."

There Are No Homosexuals or Transgenders.  We first heard that homosexuals were born that way, just like heterosexuals are born with desires for those of the opposite sex.  While numerous scientific studies have been done to find a genetic link, nothing is conclusive.  And even if there were a genetic link, it would not mean that the behavior was either normal or moral.  There are males and females.  People who engage in same-sex sexuality do not become a new sexual category.  There is no third gender.  The same is true of people who identify as transgender.  It's all made up.  These new categories of gender and sexuality are social constructs.  How would genetics explain bisexuality?  Where are the genetic markers for men who "identify" as women, and women who "identify" as men?  Again, there are no genetic markers.

All the Queen's Men.  [Scroll down]  What do the leading men in Hillary Clinton's campaign have in common?  Quite a lot: [...] Some of these men see women as sex objects first and foremost, while others support policies that do so.  At the same time, gays tend to value women only as breeders, not human beings.  Gays who seek children to adorn their lives choose to abandon women completely when it comes to the one, central biological truth that requires a wonderful level of intimacy:  conception.  Instead they have found ways through medical and political science to declare themselves independent of the sex that horrifies them so.  Women are objects of scorn and ridicule, not love or relationships.

Gay cops investigated for hosting 'breeding' sex parties for teens.  The arrest of a police sergeant's live-in boyfriend has reportedly launched a multi-agency probe into allegations that gay cops in upstate New York may have hosted or participated in sex parties attended by teens not old enough to drink booze or give consent.  The Times Union reports that Schenectady police Sgt. Jonathan E. Moore, 35, was at an auto dealership last month in Colonie, NY, when his boyfriend, Anthony Aubin, 27, was arrested after trying to use a counterfeit check to buy a 2016 Jaguar coupe for $92,000, according to arrest records.  Aubin's arrest has since triggered a broader investigation into allegations that gay officers may have hosted "breeding parties."  In reference to gay sex, the term "breeding" generally does not refer to propagation of the species.

A Flight Attendant Did Not Bring AIDS to the U.S..  [Scroll down]  It was against this culture war backdrop that the AIDS epidemic's "Patient Zero" was first identified — a French-Canadian flight attendant named Gaetan Dugas, who allegedly carried the HIV virus with him on a flight to the United States.  He was to become known as the first person to transmit the disease to others in the United States.  But, as we learned in a startling study published Wednesday in Nature, this young man was almost certainly not "Patient Zero."  In fact, the Nature study said, there was likely no "Patient Zero" in the AIDS epidemic in America at all.

Forced Transgender Boy Quickly Returns To Normal After Removal From Mother's Care.  A seven-year-old boy has been removed from his mother's care by the high court, after he was found to be suffering "significant emotional harm" due to his mother raising him as a girl.  The judge in the case slammed social services who had simply accepted that the boy should be treated as a girl.  The High Court judge hearing the case, Mr Justice Hayden, told the court that he believed the mother had been "absolutely convinced" that the boy "perceived himself as a girl" and was therefore determined to treat him as a girl, according to reports.

Hey Catholics, This Is What Team Hillary Really Thinks Of You.  [Scroll down]  Had this been conservatives talking about some liberal cause celebre, the media and Planet Clinton would be feasting on it and calling for the heads of all involved.  Imagine for a moment if you replaced the actors with conservatives and Catholicism and the conversation topic with Black Lives Matter, LGTB rights, or women.  The rebukes would come fast and furious, and with wicked vengeance.  Another email shows Podesta discussing the groups he founded to incite rebellion and schism within the Church, when confronted with the suggestion of a "Catholic Spring" against church doctrine and leadership in favor of "gender equality."

The Facts about Transgenderism.  When transgenders can prove to me that they have either gotten rid of the "Y" chromosome (male-to-female) or implanted the "Y" chromosome (female-to-male), then they will truly be "transgendered."  Until then, they are transvestites, pure and simple.  They may dress as they wish, look as they wish, and even be called by others as they wish, but I will not allow them to force me to participate in this charade — to lie and say they are transgendered when they are not.

Up to 20% Have Regret; Sex Changes Are Not Effective, say Researchers.  The review of more than 100 international medical studies of "post-operative" transsexuals finds up to 20% regret transitioning and no conclusive evidence was found that shows gender reassignment surgery improves the lives of transsexuals, with many people remaining severely distressed and even suicidal after the operation, wrote David Batty in the UK Guardian.

Drop The T From LGBT.  Transgender people have high rates of psychological problems that contribute to their identity expression and victimization.  The rest of the LGBT crowd should consider how that reflects on them.

'Gay gene'? No scientific evidence for it.  Two distinguished scholars at Johns Hopkins University have released a lengthy, three-part report concluding that there's not sufficient evidence to prove homosexuals and transgenders are born in that condition — in other words, there is no "gay gene."

Everything You Have Been Told about Gayness and Gender Is Wrong.  We have been told over and over again that gays, lesbians, and transgenders are "born that way."  Science, in fact, makes no such claim.  Never has.  In fact, social science, biological science, and every branch of medical science and psychology contradict this claim.  The New Atlantis, A Journal of Technology and Society, has produced a remarkable, far-reaching landmark study which offers a summary and an up-to-date explanation of research on sexual orientation and gender identity from the biological, psychological, and social sciences, covering nearly 200 peer-reviewed studies.

Church of England Faces Possible Split over Homosexuality.  The Church of England is looking at a possible split over issues including homosexuality and the church moving further away from Bible.  The split may not be immediate, but if the church continues its liberal stance, changes are expected to be made, according to a recent report from The Telegraph.  The creation of a new "shadow synod" would vow to uphold tradition.  Representatives from about a dozen congregations plan to meet in a church hall in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, later this week to develop a possible alternative church in England.  The new alliance is said to be viewed as a "church within a church," but the founders have not ruled out full separation.

DOJ police-training video on transgender interactions highlights public bathroom complaint.  The Justice Department has released a training video meant to be used by law enforcement to demonstrate best practices for interactions with members of the transgender community — including a scenario that involves a complaint about public bathroom use.  The training video emphasizes that, when interacting with transgender individuals, officers should keep their questions relevant to the report or investigation at hand and remain courteous.  When in doubt, the video says, an officer should ask about the person's gender pronoun preference.

Psychiatrist says Puberty Blockers Can Help Young Transgenders 'Fit In'.  According to a Kaiser Health News report, using puberty suppressing drugs not only prevents children from developing secondary sex characteristics, it also can make it far easier for transgender teens to "fit in."

Almost Everything the Media Tell You About Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Is Wrong.  A major new report, published today [8/22/2016] in the journal The New Atlantis, challenges the leading narratives that the media has pushed regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.  Co-authored by two of the nation's leading scholars on mental health and sexuality, the 143-page report discusses over 200 peer-reviewed studies in the biological, psychological, and social sciences, painstakingly documenting what scientific research shows and does not show about sexuality and gender.  The major takeaway, as the editor of the journal explains, is that "some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence."

Meningitis outbreaks among gay men have experts puzzled.  "It is perplexing," said Dr.  Rachel Civen, a medical epidemiologist at L.A. County's Department of Public Health.  Of the 13 cases of meningitis this year in L.A. County — excluding Long Beach, which has its own health department — seven were gay men.  There were only 12 meningitis cases in the county in all of 2015, one of which was a gay or bisexual man.  In Long Beach, there have been six meningitis cases this year, half of which were gay men.  Last year there were no meningitis cases in the city, according to city officials.  Civen, who has tracked the county's meningitis cases for a decade, said it was "pretty striking" that half or more of the cases in both jurisdictions were gay men.

The Perversion of Science and Medicine, Part II.  [Scroll down]  Anyone also vaguely familiar with the politically protected disease AIDS can furnish another overt example of politicized science and medicine.  With AIDS, the government, via its agencies, particularly the CDC and other subsidiary public health departments throughout the nation, have tortured statistics until they have falsely confessed, and have promoted media hype and sensationalism as to force the viewpoint that heterosexuals in the U.S. are as much at risk as homosexuals and illicit drug users for contracting the dreaded HIV virus, and that "we are all at risk of AIDS."  "Why?" you ask.  Because government agencies want to be able to obtain more and more funding from a frightened and more empathetic taxpayer and perpetuate and replicate their bureaucracies faster, not to mention also the desire to change the cultural perspective of this tragic (but social) disease in American society.  All this, mind you, despite the fact research and development monies were (and are) being spent on AIDS more so than with any other disease including breast cancer which AIDS funding surpasses by a margin of nearly 3:1, although breast cancer in the last decade has killed almost three times as many people.

Connecticut State Government:  Believing There Are Only Two Genders Is 'Genderism'.  According the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), which published an LGBT glossary of more than 250 terms, the belief that there are only two genders — male and female — should be treated as "genderism."  The guide, which was published as part of the DCF's Safe Harbors Project and was last updated July 7, defines "genderism" as:  "The system of belief that there are only two genders (men and women) and that gender is inherently tied to one's sex assigned at birth.  It holds cisgender people as superior to transgender people, and punishes or excludes those who don't conform to society's expectations of gender."

Transgender woman accused of videotaping 18-year-old in Target fitting room.  A transgender woman accused of videotaping an 18-year-old in a Target fitting room admitted to detectives that she had made videos in the past of women undressing, according to court documents obtained by EastIdahoNews.com.  Shauna Smith, a transgender woman, is being charged as Sean Smith with one felony count of video voyeurism after the alleged incident Monday [7/11/2016].

Transgender woman arrested in voyeurism incident at Idaho Target.  An Idaho man who told police he identifies as a woman was arrested Tuesday [7/12/2016] after allegedly taking photos of a woman in a Target fitting room, officials said.  Sean Patrick Smith, 43, was allegedly dressed in women's clothing when he entered the fitting room in the women's section of the store in Ammon on Monday, East Idaho News reported.  Smith, also known as Shauna Patricia Smith, then began taking pictures of a woman in the changing stall next to him, police said.  "The woman was begging for help as she chased the man out the door," a witness told East Idaho News.  "She kept saying she wanted those pictures deleted."

Transgender Person Arrested For Taking Pictures Of Woman In Target Dressing Room.  Idaho police arrested a man — who identifies as a transgender woman — on one count of felony voyeurism Tuesday [7/12/2016] after he took pictures of a woman while she was changing clothes in a Target dressing room, the Post Register reported.  Sheriff's deputies arrested 43-year-old Sean Patrick Smith, who reportedly identifies as Shauna Patricia Smith, the day after he was spotted reaching over the changing room wall with a cell phone taking pictures of a woman who was trying on clothes.  The victim confronted Smith, who then ran out of the store.

D.C. Has Highest Transgender Identification Rate in Nation.  Washington, D.C. has the highest rate of transgender-identifying residents in the country, according to a recently released study by the The Williams Institute, which is associated with the University of California/Los Angeles School of Law.  Of the estimated 1.4 million transgender-identifying individuals in the United States, about 14,550 — or 2.77 percent of the total — reside in D.C., according to the think tank, which specializes in "sexual orientation and gender identity law".  The District of Columbia "had a notably high percentage of transgender-identified adults (2.8%) and is considered an outlier due to its unique geographic (urban) and demographic profile," according to the study findings' endnotes.

Lesbian Couple Adopts Young Boy And Forces Him To Be Homosexual.  A lesbian couple adopted a little boy and they are now forcing him to become homosexual, regardless of the fact that he does not like it.  This is absolute child abuse and should be responded to by the authorities of the state.  Of course, that will not happen because the elites of this nation are amongst the antichrist forces.

Christian Mingle Ordered To Accept Gay Singles.  Dating website ChristianMingle has settled a lawsuit and now will accept same-sex searches.  Previously, the site only allowed women to search for men and men to search for women.  A class-action suit was filed in 2013 by two gay men against Sparks Networks Inc., the owner of ChristianMingle and several other dating sites.  The suit alleged that the sites were in violation of California's anti-discrimination law.

Survey finds excess health problems in lesbians, gays, bisexuals.  For the first time since its launch in 1957, the National Health Interview Survey in 2013 and 2014 included a question about sexual orientation.  With nearly 69,000 participants, the survey revealed that lesbian, gay and bisexual adults "were more likely to report impaired physical and mental health, heavy alcohol consumption, and heavy cigarette use, potentially due to the stressors that (they) experience as a result of interpersonal and structural discrimination," researchers wrote online June 28 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Legal Experts:  Transgender Pronoun Mandates Are Unconstitutional.  Government mandates that force people to use a transgender person's preferred name and pronoun are unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment right to free speech, legal experts say.  As the transgender debate moves further and further to the front of the public consciousness, government agencies are increasingly implementing policies that require people to call transgender persons by their preferred name and pronouns, regardless of their biological sex.  In December, for example, New York City's Commission on Human Rights passed a gender identity policy threatening fines up to $250,000 for intentionally using the wrong name or pronoun to refer to a transgender person, even if they prefer gender-neutral pronouns like "ze."

Sodomy is not love.

How Long Before God Gives America the Sodom and Gomorrah Fate It Is Begging For?  In the biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham was told by God that his town would be destroyed due to the decadence prevalent there.  Abraham bargained with God for the righteous and it finally came down God agreeing He would not destroy the city for the sake of 10 men if Abraham could find them.  When he could not find any righteous men (Gen. 18) Lot took his family and fled to the surrounding hills as God rained fire and brimstone down on the evil residents of the towns.  I am at the point of wondering how many righteous men it will take for God to spare this nation the same fate.  1 Corinthians 6:9 says that homosexuals and sodomites will not enter Heaven.  I don't know how many righteous men it will take for God to spare the USA but we are a nation of more than 330 million so the number will be huge I would imagine.

Oregon judge allows person to change gender from female to 'non-binary'.  An Oregon judge ruled Friday [6/10/2016] that a transgender individual can legally change their sex to "non-binary" rather than male or female in what is believed to be an unprecedented ruling.  The Oregonian reported that Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Amy Holmes Hehn legally changed Jamie Shupe's, 52, sex from female to non-binary. [...] Shupe is an Army veteran who retired in 2000 a sergeant first class.  She began transitioning in 2013 while living in Pittsburg and knew that neither the male or female gender label fit.

Federal judge rules California transgender inmates must get some female items.  A federal judge ruled Thursday [6/9/2016] that California prison officials must let transgender inmates have more female-oriented commissary items including nightgowns, robes, sandals, scarves and necklaces as part of a settlement that will make the stat the first to pay for an inmate's sex reassignment surgery.  California agreed in August to provide some items to transgender inmates who are housed in male prisons, aside from providing surgery to 56-year-old Shiloh Quine.  U.S. Magistrate Judge Nandor Vadas decided that the policy didn't go far enough.  He said transgender inmates housed in men's prisons should have many of the same items provided to female inmates.  Shiloh's attorneys argued that the state was keeping some items from transgender prisoners "based solely upon gender norms" rather than security concerns.

Cowpoke in hot pants stirs transgender uproar at Texas BBQ joint.  When it comes to eating at a barbecue joint there's an unspoken code of conduct.  You don't order salad, you don't use a fork and if you're a cross-dressing cowboy with an affinity for stiletto heels — you don't use the ladies room.  And that brings me to a story from the pages of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about a small-town barbecue joint that inadvertently found itself right smack in the middle of the big debate over transgender bathrooms.

Cross-Dressing Cowboy Told to Stay Out of Ladies' Bathroom at Texas BBQ Joint.  A Texas BBQ restaurant has made their transgender bathroom policy abundantly clear — "No Men Allowed in Women's Bathroom."  A cross-dressing cowboy truck driver has been stirring-up trouble in the Texas BBQ joint.  The trucker likes to come in dressed in a skirt or hot pants and a blouse and six-inch stilettos.  The sign in the small Texas town restaurant now politely warns, "No men allowed in the women's bathroom please."  The restaurant shares the building with a Texaco service station.

A New Transvaluation.  [Scroll down]  Today, the great muddled thought processes of the indoctrinated are presented with a multiplicity of genders before them like some sumptuous buffet: a veritable feast wherein an emancipated humanity might pick and choose their erotic flavor of the day.  Mood and inclination will now trump nature as we become sexual flies of a season, owing no quarter to God or man as our sexual identities spin like a carnival wheel — alighting on a moment's temporal fancy.  The only problem with this elitist idyll is that any man possessing a modicum of good sense knows this is a sham.  Those 31 hypothesized New York City genders are merely homosexuality's obfuscationist window dressing, and it makes little substantial difference whether an aging decathlete parades about in a push-up bra or a pathetic wretch submits his flesh to the horrors of surgical mutilation.

CDC: High Rate of HIV Among Transgender Women.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says HIV infection rates are high among transgender women in the United States, and particularly high among black transgender women, compared to other groups.  On its website page "HIV Among Transgender People," the CDC cites a systematic review of various studies which showed that 28% of all transgender women had HIV.  (A transgender woman is a biological male who identifies as a female.)  Also, "56% of black/African American transgender women had positive HIV test results compared to 17% of white or 16% of Hispanic/Latina transgender women," said the CDC.  Black transgender women "are more likely to have HIV than transgender women of other races/ethnicities," said the health agency.

Black Lives Matter's LGBTQ Agenda.  While the media cover Black Lives Matter's complaints of racism and police brutality, they largely underreport the movement's campaign to normalize all permutations of sexual proclivity.  The "Guiding Principles" on blacklivesmatter.com clearly delineate the group's pro-LGBTQ agenda:  "Black Lives Matter is a radical social intervention," their web site proclaims.  Black Lives Matter is "Queer Affirming:"  "When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking or, rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual unless s/he or they disclose otherwise."  Another principle defines the group as "Transgender Affirming ... We are committed to... doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk..." [...] In addition to harboring an apparent distaste for the family, feminism also pervades the Black Lives Matter movement, with terms including "patriarchy" and "hetero-patriarchy" appearing on the site.

Gay Men Dressing Like Dogs, Creating 'Pup Play Kink'.  A documentary about to air in Great Britain exposes more boundary-pushing by the gay world — men who like to dress up like dogs and be "handled" by their owners in so-called "pup play."  The "Secret Life of Human Pups" is a "sympathetic look at the world of pup play", according to an article in The Guardian.  It is said to be a movement that grew out of the bondage and domination world and, with the internet, "has exploded in the last 15 years."

New York City Lets You Choose From 31 Different Gender Identities.  Individuals living in New York City can choose from a minimum of 31 different gender identities, many of which allow them to fluctuate between some version or combination of male or female identities.  Businesses that don't respect and accommodate an individual's chosen gender identity risk incurring six-figure fines under rules implemented by the city's Commission on Human Rights.

CDC: Southerners' 'Racism' And 'Homophobia' Cause Gay Men's High HIV Rates.  An issue brief published on Tuesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control claimed that that Southerners' "racism," and "homophobia" may be causing high HIV rates in the South that are disproportionately high among African-Americans and homosexuals.  According to the issue brief, Southern states have 37 percent of the U.S. population and 44 percent of all HIV infected people living in America.  HIV rates among gay men and African-Americans account for the lion's share of those infected with HIV.

Hersheypark Announces Commitment to Allowing Men Who Identify as Women to Use Women's Restrooms.  A Pennsylvania amusement park that is a popular attraction for families with children has announced that its internal policies allow visitors and employees to use the restroom that correlates with their "gender identity."  Hersheypark officials released a statement on Friday [5/20/2016] outlining that its restroom accommodations have already been in place and will continue.

Denmark to become first nation to stop recognizing being transgender as a mental illness.  Even in the year 2016, in the same moment the U.S. government and Attorney General Loretta Lynch publicly stand up for and protect the "fairness and inclusion" of all Americans, being transgender is still considered a mental disorder by the World Health Organization (WHO).  Denmark, however, for its part has "run out of patience" with that idea, and has instead opted to forego the WHO's classification, saying that its definition of transgender is "stigmatizing" and "discriminatory," per reports from the Independent and Mic.

Call Me Brucelyn??  The CBS News affiliate in Los Angeles reported yesterday [5/12/2016] that  Bruce  Caitlyn Jenner is having second thoughts about her transition and might possibly switch teams back to being a Bruce.  A Jenner spokesperson ridiculed the report, which was enough for Snopes to declare the report categorically false.  I don't see why Jenner should be forced to choose one or the other.  Why not both?  Why not alternate depending on the circumstances, such as when there's a long line for the Women's restroom at sporting events?  That would he an extremely handy time to be "Bruce" again, for at least five minutes.

A Sad Video Highlights the Contradictions and Tragedy of the Transgender Moment.  Writing in the Gospel Coalition, Trevin Wax asks:  "When a person feels a disjunction between one's sex at birth and one's gender identity, why is the only course of action to bring the body into closer conformity with the person's psychological state, rather than vice versa?"  That's the course of action for the transitioning person.  The course of action for their loved ones is substantially different.  In essence, the Caitlyn Jenners are saying to their spouses or paramours, "I'm now a woman, and that makes you a lesbian."

Feds Spend $35.7 Million on LGBT Anti-Smoking Ads.  The Food and Drug Administration is using young lesbians, drag queens, and transgender individuals in a $36 million advertising campaign to encourage the LGBT community to quit smoking.  The government launched the "This Free Life" campaign Monday [5/2/2016], which encourages young people to "find their own truth" and not smoke cigarettes.  "This Free Life is a campaign that proudly celebrates the lives of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community," the campaign's website states.  "We wave our colors high and seek to improve LGBT people's health by encouraging tobacco-free lifestyles."

5 Times 'Transgender' Men Abused Women And Children In Bathrooms.  The leftist push to force both private and public entities to open their bathrooms and locker-rooms to transgender people has recently exploded in the media.  The governor of North Carolina's decision to reject such an ordinance by signing HB 2 into law has taken over the spotlight.  The left has cast the law as bigoted, along with all those who agree it.  Baseball legend Curt Schilling was even fired from his job at ESPN for expressing opposition to the ordinance and proclaiming that "a man is a man no matter what.  One conservative argument against the leftist push goes as follows:  some men will abuse the bathrooms and locker-rooms open to gender identity rather than biology by falsely proclaiming womanhood in order to gain access to women and children for motives of malice.  Such facilities could become easy-access breading grounds for predators.  Thus, it would be common sense to keep the facilities separated based on biology rather than identity to protect women and children.

The real reason why the North Carolina 'bathroom bill' debate is center stage.  Thursday [4/21/2016], Donald Trump disagreed with North Carolina's "bathroom bill," which makes it illegal for transgender individuals to use bathrooms they feel correspond to their gender, rather than the one corresponding to their genetic gender.  Senator Ted Cruz immediately attacked Trump's position, asking whether America has gone "stark raving nuts" to let men who consider themselves female to use bathrooms also being used by little girls.  The use of bathrooms by transgender individuals has come center stage in the U.S. presidential campaign for a reason:  The bathroom debate is really a debate about the fundamental way we Americans will define any truth — whether as something deeply felt by an individual, or something scientifically demonstrable and verifiable.

Drop The T From LGBT.  The post-marriage culture war is asymmetrical in the group known as LGBT.  Gay, lesbian, and bisexual activists have carried the rainbow banner for transgenders for issues that truly matter, such as employment and housing.  Now the time has come for a genuine sanity check for them to stop enabling kookier parts of the trans agenda.  The current bathroom policy debate illuminates the growing gap between the concerns of the transgender community and of the LGB community.  Perhaps those who favor gay marriage do not want any part of enabling pedophiles in wigs having easier access to kids in bathrooms.

The accused pedophile behind the 'bathroom bills'.  Accused pedophile, "mega-Obama-bundler" and long-time prominent fixture of the radical left, Terry Bean, is responsible for the bathroom bills sweeping America.  If not for Bean's "affluenza," it is quite likely that the 68-year-old would be in prison today for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy in an Oregon hotel room in 2013 with his then-lover Kiah Lawson, who was 25 at the time.  As reported at Oregonlive, Bean "had offered the boy at least $200,000 to settle the case.  Terry Bean is the co-founder of several radical groups posing as civil rights organizations.  One of these organizations, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), created the template for the bathroom bill ordinances sweeping the nation.

Boycott Target underway after superstore declares men can use women's bathrooms.  After Target announced that it would welcome "transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity," the American Family Association is now asking customers to boycott the superstore in a new petition.  "The American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target after the retail giant said it would allow men to use the women's restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores," the petition states.  "This means a man can simply say he "feels like a woman today" and enter the women's restroom... even if young girls or women are already in there."

Over 350,000 sign petition against Target's bathroom policy.  Target's new bathroom policy is causing some customers to boycott the retail giant.  This week, Target announced that transgender people were welcome to use bathrooms and fitting rooms that corresponded with the gender they identified as.  The news came in wake of North Carolina's controversial bathroom law that said transgender people must use the public restroom of their gender of birth.

DC Wants Residents To 'Report' Private Businesses Over Gender-Neutral Bathroom Law.  As the debate intensifies nationally over which bathrooms transgender people should use, the District of Columbia's city government is asking people to report private businesses that have single-occupancy bathrooms that aren't "gender-neutral.  "If you see a public bathroom with one stall that is not gender-neutral, just tweet us the business name and location using #safebathroomsDC, or fill out our five question form," states the website of the District of Columbia.  "It takes just 20 seconds to play a part in making DC a more enjoyable place for transgender and other communities!  A 2006 D.C. law requires businesses and other places with single-occupancy public restrooms to change signs that say "men" and "women" to just "restroom."

Dr. Richard Land:  Gender Activists 'Practicing Psychological Child Abuse' On 'Our Nation's Children'.  In defending North Carolina's new "bathroom" law, author and theologian Dr.  Richard Land said it is psychologically harmful to expose young boys and girls to transgender sexuality, and that "conditioning children" to believe that "chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal" is nothing more than "child abuse.  Dr.  Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary and former five-term member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, added that the LGBT activists and lawmakers who push transgender and transsexual policies are abusing a "whole generation of our nation's children" and it is up to "clear-thinking adults to stop them."

WaPo/Daily Beast:  Transgender People Committing Suicide Over NC's 'Anti-Trans' Law.  Persons afflicted with transgenderism across America are now far more likely to commit suicide, according to left-wing outpost The Daily Beast (TDB), following North Carolina's passing of House Bill 2 (HB2).  HB2 mandates that multiple occupancy bathrooms and changing facilities administered by schools and public agencies restrict access based on biological sex as defined on a person's birth certificate.  Blaming GOP lawmakers for the alleged increase in calls made to Trans Lifeline — described as a crisis hotline for transgender people — TDB's Samantha Allen describes HB2 as "life-threatening" to transgender persons.

The Editor says...
The headline on the article above appears to be grossly deceptive and misleading:  Nobody has committed suicide as a result of the new law.  The article says they are "far more likely to commit suicide" and the LGBTQWERTY activists claim the law is "'life-threatening' to transgender persons," but no names are given.  If there were any such suicides, details surely would have been included in the article.  Between 30 and 45 percent of transgender people report having attempted suicide anyway, law or no law.  It is the deviant lifestyle itself that is life-threatening.

You Will Be Compelled to Agree.  The rules of bigotry according to the left represent a constantly shifting kaleidoscope of nonsense.  This week, we learned that if you don't want your small daughter peeing next to a giant man who thinks he is a woman, you are a bigot; if you are a woman who is uncomfortable with a man who thinks he is a woman whipping out his male genitalia to urinate in front of you, you are a bigot; if you are a religious person who doesn't want to participate in an activity you consider sinful, you are a bigot.

Federal Court:  Schools May Not Provide Separate Bathrooms Based on Biology.  On Tuesday [4/19/2016], the Fourth Circuit Court ruled against a Virginia school district that sought to accommodate a transgender student while also protecting the privacy rights of other students.  The court concluded that Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 — which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex — should be interpreted as prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identity, as a Department of Education letter suggested in 2015.  The ruling allows a lawsuit brought by a transgender student to proceed.

Retailer Target says transgender people can use bathroom of their choice.  Target Corp said on Tuesday [4/19/2016] that transgender employees and customers could use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity, becoming the first big retailer to weigh in on an issue at the center of a heated national debate.  The move came after North Carolina last month became the first U.S. state to require transgender people to use restrooms and changing rooms in schools and other public facilities that match their sex at birth rather than their gender identity.  Lawmakers in some other states have also floated similar laws.

Hoyer Okay with Biological Men Using Women's Restrooms.  House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said on Tuesday [4/19/2016] that people "ought to be able to use the restroom of the gender they identify with.  CNSNews.com asked Hoyer at his weekly meeting with reporters at the U.S. Capitol:  "There has been a great deal of controversy lately about North Carolina's bathroom law.  Do you believe that biological males should be allowed to use the ladies' room in federal facilities and parks around the country?"  Hoyer did not directly answer the yes or no question, but instead stated his "position" on the issue.

Turning American Law Upside Down for the Transgendered.  Our nation's centuries-old commitment to free speech and religious liberty was already under threat.  But it took men wanting to use women's bathrooms and vice versa for the Left to truly show its hand, plainly and unequivocally declaring that American legal traditions should be set ablaze.  Yesterday [4/18/2016], the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights published a "Statement Condemning Recent State Laws and Pending Proposals Targeting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community" — a statement motivated by new Mississippi laws protecting religious freedom and by North Carolina's much-discussed "bathroom law.  The Commission claims that any law requiring men and women to use bathrooms that correspond to their biological sex "jeopardizes not only the dignity, but also the actual physical safety, of transgender people whose appearances may not match societal expectations of the sex specified on their identification documents."

Rep. Mark Walker: Liberals Exploiting Bathroom Bill Controversy For Political Gain.  A bathroom bill, a rock star, and competing claims of privacy have catapulted North Carolina into the center of a national debate over transgender rights.  And Rep.  Mark Walker, R-N.C., says he knows why.  The freshman legislator argues that Democrats are manufacturing outrage over the law for political gain in the Tar Heel state.

God Determines Sex, Not Legislators.  There is no doubt in my mind and I am totally convinced that our society has gone completely mad.  The lack of common sense these days just boggles my mind.  When someone is born they are either a male or a female, God decides what we are, now it seems the politicians are trying to tell us what a persons physical sex actually is.  We now have states around the country trying to pass legislation to allow restrooms to be used by people who say they" identify" with a different biological sex then they were born to.  Which means that your 10 year old daughter or granddaughter will be using the same restroom as a 40 year old man, just because that man feels like a woman that day?  Is there a person out there with half a brain that thinks that is right?

Sexual predators take advantage of transgender laws.  It may not have been intended, but it was predictable.  This video spells out case after case of sexual predators entering women's locker rooms and dressing rooms and other private places that are speedily becoming "unprivate," demanding to shower and change with them.  [Video clip]

Lawmakers want Census Bureau to ask about sexual orientation.  A bipartisan group of lawmakers is calling on the federal government to start counting the number of homosexuals living in the United States.  The group of nearly 80 lawmakers wrote a letter to a House Appropriations subcommittee on Tuesday, asking the U.S. Census Bureau to survey people about their sexual orientation and gender identity.  Specifically, the legislators are asking the committee, which oversees the Census Bureau, to support the additional data collection as part of the fiscal 2017 appropriations bill.

Want to Improve Your State?  Pass an Anti-LGBT Law!  [Scroll down]  The truth is the only people wishing to impose their beliefs on others are leftists.  While a Christian business may choose to deny services for an event, they have no interest in denying service to an individual.  Transgender people have been using public restrooms without issue since the 1960s and there is no reason anyone should expect their personal sense of gender to override the natural inclinations of others to use the correct bathroom in public.  Transgender people are simply not going to be discriminated against and those who feel they will be fall under the 'no shoes, no service' concept of appropriate social behavior and expectations.  No one involved on the right has even proposed criminalizing or limiting transgender freedoms or liberty and certainly no one cares if a gay person buys from their shop.  People simply do not want to be bullied into participating in events or concepts they deeply oppose and no one wants their daughter in the same bathroom with a man who believes wearing a dress and a wig makes him a woman.

When Did It Become Controversial To Keep Men Out Of The Women's Bathroom?  Determining what percentage of the population is actually transgender is very difficult.  For example, would Bruce Jenner have counted before he started dressing in women's clothes or not?  But, the best estimate puts transgenders at about .3% of the population.  However, if you're talking about people who've had hormones and surgery and also dress in the opposite gender's clothes as opposed to simply "feeling like a woman," it's most certainly lower.  On the other hand, roughly 50.4% of Americans really are women.  That means there are 168 women for every transgender person in America.  Even if we accept that a transgender man dressed like a woman would be embarrassed to go into a men's bathroom, doesn't it make more sense for him to be uncomfortable than all those women?

North Carolina AG says he won't defend law overriding local anti-discrimination rules.  North Carolina's attorney general said Tuesday [3/29/2016] that he won't defend in court a newly enacted state law preventing local governments from passing anti-discrimination rules meant to protect gay, lesbian and transgender people.  Roy Cooper made the announcement one day after a day after gay rights advocates sued the state to seek to overturn the law.  The federal lawsuit lists Cooper among the defendants because of his official position.  Cooper, a Democrat who is challenging Republican Gov.  Pat McCrory in the November election, described the law as "a national embarrassment" that conflicted with his own department's anti-discrimination rules and "will set North Carolina's economy back" if it is not repealed.

NY Gov. Cuomo Bans State Travel to North Carolina But Encourages Cuba Visits.  New York's Democratic governor banned state travel to North Carolina this week, citing its residents' supposed lack of equal protection under the law, weeks after he announced efforts to facilitate travel from New York to Cuba, which is ruled by a repressive communist dictatorship that routinely imprisons political dissenters.  "In New York, we believe that all people — regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation — deserve the same rights and protections under the law," said Gov. Andrew Cuomo in announcing a ban on "non-essential" state travel to North Carolina.  The move came in response to a new North Carolina law that restricts gendered restrooms to people of their respective biological sexes.

American College of Pediatricians: 'Transgender' Conditioning Is 'Child Abuse'.  George Orwell famously wrote, "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."  For those tethered to biological reality, the self-evident truth that, prior to birth, people develop either "XY" or "XX" genetic markers and, as such, are objectively, and shall forever remain, either male or female, is as plain as blue is blue or pink is pink.  Indeed, notwithstanding the politically driven "LGBT" agenda that pretends otherwise, those who suffer with "gender dysphoria" disorder will stay, as born, either male or female, whether or not they play dress up, sterilize themselves and destroy healthy reproductive organs.  Hence, it's of little surprise that, tragically, of those who put themselves through this imaginary "transition," 41 percent will subsequently attempt suicide.

The Questions Liberals Never Have to Answer.  [Question #3]  Why do you support legally persecuting millions of Christians who quite correctly believe that they cannot live in accordance with their faith if they participate in a gay wedding?  Who's a worse person, a Christian cake maker who happily serves gay customers, but believes it's wrong for her to cater a gay wedding or a gay couple that deliberately searches out a Christian cake maker who can't participate in their wedding so they can sue her?  Why should little girls be forced to share a bathroom with grown men who claim they "feel like" women?  What about their safety?  What about the fact that many of them don't feel comfortable sharing a bathroom with someone with male genitalia?  Are you helping people or hurting them by falsely telling them they can change their sex and encouraging them to mutilate themselves through surgery instead of encouraging them to get psychiatric treatment?

Transgender woman says she was raped in Stonewall Inn bathroom.  A transgender woman says she was raped in a unisex bathroom at the Stonewall Inn — and police are searching for the suspect who they say regularly frequents the landmark gay bar.  Video surveillance clearly shows the woman entering the single-occupancy bathroom late Saturday [3/26/2016], soon followed by a man believed to be in his 30s, police sources say.

Georgia governor to veto 'religious liberty' bill.  Under increasing pressure from major corporations that do business in Georgia, Gov. Nathan Deal announced Monday [3/28/2016] he will veto a bill that critics say would have curtailed the rights of Georgia's LGBT community.  House Bill 757 would have given faith-based organizations in Georgia the option to deny services and jobs to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.  Supporters said the measure was meant to protect religious freedom, while opponents have described it as "anti-LGBT" and "appalling."

San Francisco mayor bans city workers from traveling to North Carolina.  San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee said in a statement Friday [3/25/2016] he doesn't want any city workers to travel to North Carolina unless necessary in wake of its legislation which blocks anti-discrimination for gay, lesbian and transgender people.  "We are standing united as San Franciscans to condemn North Carolina's new discriminatory law that turns back the clock on protecting the rights of all Americans including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals," Lee said in the statement.

Uproar breaks out in North Carolina over 'anti-LGBTQ' law.  The legislature called a special session Wednesday [3/23/2016] to void a Charlotte ordinance that would have enabled transgender people to legally use restrooms aligned with their gender identity instead of biological sex, and would have provided broad protections against discrimination in public accommodations in the state's largest city.  The controversial House Bill 2 now prevents the state's cities and counties from passing their own anti-discrimination rules and instead imposes a statewide standard that leaves out sexual orientation and gender identity.  The law orders public schools, government agencies and public college campuses to designate use of multiple-occupancy bathrooms and changing facilities, such as locker rooms, by biological sex stated on a person's birth certificate.

Indonesian Psychiatric Association: Gays Have 'Psychiatric Problems,' Trans Have 'Mental Disorders'.  The Indonesian Psychiatric Association (IPA) has officially announced that homosexuals and bisexuals are "people with psychiatric problems," and that transgender people have "mental disorders," conditions that can be treated.  The announcement was reported in several media outlets, including The Jakarta Post, The Guardian, and The Christian Post.  The IPA said that "people with homosexuality and bisexuality can be categorized as people with mental problems," as reported in The Guardian.  The group added that gays suffer from "physical, mental, and social problems, growth and development, and/or life-quality problems, thus giving them risks to experience mental disorders."

Carson: Gay Marriage Is 'Camel's Nose Under Tent To Undermine Christian Foundation of Our Nation'.  Liberals/progressives have infiltrated U.S. schools, the media, the courts, and other institutions over the years to "undermine the principles that made America great," and to "change the thinking of our young people," said Dr. Ben Carson, who added that the Supreme Court's decision to make homosexual marriage legal "is the camel's nose under the tent to undermine the Christian foundation of our nation."  Speaking about the gay marriage decision at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention last week, neurosurgeon Ben Carson said, "We also need to recognize why this is such an important ruling for the advocates of gay marriage.  The Bible, in both the Old and New Testament is pretty firm against their way of thinking."  [Video clip]

San Francisco Public Library hosts drag queen story hour for children.  What do drag queens and children have in common?  They both find joy in wrapping themselves in feather boas and all things shiny and glittery.  A San Francisco nonprofit recognizes this shared interest in dressing up and is joining forces with the San Francisco Public Library to bring drag queens and children together.  Radar Productions, a group giving voice to queer writers and artists, will be hosting Honey Mahogany at the Eureka Valley Harvey Milk Memorial Library, March 12, noon to 2 p.m, in the heart of the Castro District.  Dressed in fabulous drag-queen garb and full makeup, Honey will be reading stories, painting children's faces and passing out cookies.

Nike ends Manny Pacquiao contract after boxer says gays are 'worse than animals'.  The US sportswear giant Nike has canceled its contract with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao, after he described gays as being "worse than animals."  A spokesperson for the firm called his comments "abhorrent." [...] "It's just common sense.  Do you see any animals of the same sex mating?  Animals are better off, they can distinguish between male and female," Pacquiao told TV5 on Monday [2/15/2016].  "Now if men are mating with men and women with women, then they are worse than animals," he said.

Boxing great Manny Pacquiao refuses to back down on gay slurs.  Philippine boxing great Manny Pacquiao refused to back down Friday [2/19/2016] over gay slurs that have tarnished his reputation and cost him millions in sponsorship deals, insisting God is on his side.  The eight-division world champion smiled and joked through a short training session in his hometown of General Santos just after dawn, then told reporters he had no intention of bowing to his critics.  "What I am saying is right.  I mean I am just stating the truth, what the Bible says," Pacquiao said.

The Editor says...
Mr. Pacquiao's comment can hardly be described as a slur.  What did he say that isn't absolutely true?  This case has a lot in common with the silencing of global warming skeptics.

15 Stats That Destroy Liberal Narratives.  [#14] "No fewer than eight major studies from around the world have found homosexuality is not a genetic condition.  Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council says that these numerous, rigorous studies of identical twins have now made it impossible to argue that there is a 'gay gene.'  If homosexuality were inborn and predetermined, then when one identical twin is homosexual, the other should be, as well.  Yet one study from Yale and Columbia Universities found homosexuality common to only 6.7 percent of male identical twins and 5.3 percent of female identical twins. [...]"

The Left's Retreat to Fantasy.  [Scroll down]  Take, for instance, the latest left-wing crusade — transsexuality. [...] [T]hese people are by definition badly disturbed.  They are obsessed with something they cannot have, and insist that the rest of us share in their delusion that they can have it. [...] (It should be pointed out — though it's often overlooked — that there are a lot more men convinced they are women than the other way around.)  Viewed from the Jungian point of view — or that of any other traditional psychological school — it's undeniable [that] transsexuals are extremely disturbed individuals in need of treatment to help them reintegrate their psyches.  The record reinforces this conclusion, from the sad case of the Dutch transsexual who handed himself over to the tender mercies of the state's euthanasists after being transformed into a "monster," to the recent complaints of "Chaz" Bono, who bemoans "his" loneliness due to normal women viewing him as a "freak."  It's no surprise to learn that transsexuals have a 40%+ postoperative suicide rate.

NYC Will Fine You $250,000 For 'Misgendering' A Transsexual.  Did you call a transsexual person "he" or "she" when they preferred to be called "zhe?" According to a newly updated anti-discrimination law in New York City, you could be fined an eye-watering $250,000.  In the latest, astonishing act of draconian political correctness, the NYC Commission on Human Rights have updated a law on "Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Expression" to threaten staggering financial penalties against property owners who "misgender" employees or tenants.

The Gay Agenda and the Real World.  There's just one problem with the gay agenda:  it's based on a lie.  Homosexuals are not like heterosexuals, nor is the practice of homosexuality innocuous.  The single largest problem for the gay agenda is medical science.  In 2014, the CDC found that men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM), about 1 percent of the population, accounted for 83 percent of syphilis cases in the U.S.  Syphilis, a disease that was once on the verge of eradication, is spreading like wildfire.  According to the CDC, syphilis rates "are increasing at an alarming rate."  The statistics for AIDS are similar.  In 2010, MSM were responsible for 63 percent of new AIDS cases in the US.  The rate of anal cancer among MSM is seventeen times higher than among heterosexuals.  It is alarming that the gay community exhibits no restraint and cannot be self-policing.  Even school children know about condoms, yet venereal diseases rage unchecked through the population of gay men.  A recent report in the medical literature found that infection rates for both gonorrhea and chlamydia are increasing among MSM.  The fact that about two-thirds of syphilis and AIDS cases occur amongst one percent of the population tells us something that is immediate and unambiguous:  that homosexuality is not an innocuous choice.  What gay men do behind closed doors is fundamentally different from what heterosexuals usually do in their bedrooms.  It's also more dangerous.

Human Rights Campaign Calls on Christian Colleges to Repent of Their Christianity.  On Friday [12/18/2015], the nation's largest gay-rights organization, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), released a chilling report that investigates a "disturbing trend" of religious colleges' taking legal measures to exercise their religious liberty, using waivers available to them under Title IX.

Debunking 5 Phony Statistics Liberals Love To Toss Around.  [Phony statistic #4:]  Ten percent of the population is gay:  In actuality, the percentage of gay Americans is tiny.  The survey taken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asked a simple question of 34,557 adults nationwide:  "Which of the following best represents how you think of yourself?"  The five possible answers were straight, lesbian/gay, bisexual, "something else" and "I don't know the answer."  Transgenders, the "T" in LGBT, were not included.  The survey found that a mere 1.6 percent of the adult population self-identifies as "lesbian/gay," and an even smaller 0.7 percent told interviewers they were bisexual.  The bisexuals were outnumbered by the 1.1 percent who didn't know, wouldn't answer or said they were "something else."

The tyranny of a very small but very powerful minority.  Some people actually believe that the majority rule.  Nope.  Not in America.  Not anymore.  The Census shows that at present, the United States is 77.7% white and that figure includes white Hispanics.  Without them, it's approximately 62%.  All Hispanics number 17% and blacks around 13%.  Although many Americans polled believe that the gay community is around 20%, the actual number is 1.6% and yet the LGBT community wields enormous influence over our culture and has succeeded in tearing down traditional mores of the nation and the world.  Why?  The answer is that this demographic is extremely wealthy and has influence over many spheres in government, entertainment, the media and industry.

The Rainbow Jihad.  A Kentucky county clerk thrown in jail.  A New York state family fined thousands of dollars.  An Oregon baker fined hundreds of thousands of dollars.  A decorated Iowa newspaper editor loses his job.  A Washington State florist facing the loss of her home and life savings.  Soldiers court-martialed.  These are but a few of the casualties of the Rainbow Jihad in America, and there will be more.  Because the endgame is not "tolerance" or "diversity" but "you will be made to care."

Our Secular Papacy & Gay Rights.  In 1986 the Supreme Court heard the case of Bowers v. Hardwick.  Lawyers representing Michael Hardwick, a practicing homosexual, wanted the Court to declare that Georgia's "sodomy" statute was unconstitutional because, as the Court's majority put it, the statute "violates the fundamental rights of homosexuals."  The Court has long claimed that the "due process clause" of the Fourteenth Amendment empowers it to nullify state laws which at least five justices feel violate "fundamental rights."  The claim is completely fraudulent, but that's another story.  In Bowers v. Hardwick, a bare 5-4 majority opined that the practice of "homosexual sodomy" was not a "fundamental right."  So Georgia's law was upheld.  The majority opinion, written by Byron White, pointed out that "sodomy was a criminal offense at common law and was forbidden by the laws of the original 13 States when they ratified the Bill of Rights."  It went on to observe that "in 1868, when the Fourteenth Amendment was ratified, all but 5 of the 37 States in the Union had criminal sodomy laws.  In fact, until 1961, all 50 States outlawed sodomy."

Liberals Praise Hillary Clinton's New Ad With Same Sex Couples Kissing.  The Hillary Clinton campaign is out with an ad highlighting her record as an advocate for LGBT rights.  The spot includes images of gay couples kissing each other.  The liberal website Slate praises Clinton for including same-sex kissing in her campaign ad, saying, "Given the distressingly puritanical rules that govern gay PDAs, it's both impressive and heartening that Clinton includes gay kisses in her official campaign spots."

Media Bias That Makes You Sick.  A so-called "Media Activism Research Conference" is being held next year in Canada to expand even further the "progressive" causes available to journalists.  The event is described as a "Gathering for Grassroots and Transformative Media" at Lakehead University and "an opportunity to develop collaborations and networks among anti-capitalist, feminist, anti-racist, trans, queer and Indigenous alternative media activists and activist-researchers by sharing knowledge, skills and experiences on grassroots and transformative alternative media."  Brace yourselves for one of the seminars, which concerns "Queer anarchist autonomous zones and publics:  Direct action vomiting against homonormative consumerism."  According to my research, and I may not have gotten to the bottom of this, it seems as if media activists in Canada are exploring vomiting as a form of social protest against capitalism.

The Editor says...
I guess you'd have to be a public school student to understand how terroristic vomiting on random strangers would make the general public sympathetic to a left-wing cause, or to understand how capitalism is a threat to homosexuals.

Health campaigners hail New York governor's $200m AIDS fight pledge.  Andrew Cuomo has pledged $200m to help make HIV and Aids a thing of the past in New York, the governor announced on Monday, the eve of World Aids Day. [...] The extra resources will go towards improved housing and healthcare for people living with HIV and Aids and is part of the state's official aim to eradicate the disease by 2020.

The Editor says...
AIDS is one of the most easily-preventable contagious diseases in the world.  It doesn't take $200 million to stop AIDS.  All it takes is abstinence from sex with prostitutes, heroin addicts, and sodomites.

It's official: 'Homophobia' now a mental disorder!  If you think there might be something wrong with homosexuality, you most likely have a mental disorder, according to a recent study by a team of Italian researchers.  Discussing the study, lead researcher Emmanuele A. Jannini, M.D., stated:  "After discussing for centuries if homosexuality is to be considered a disease, for the first time we demonstrated that the real disease to be cured is homophobia, associated with potentially severe psychopathologies."  That's right.  The research team specifically found that "psychoticism," "immature defense mechanisms" and a "fearful attachment style" were associated with a greater "homophobic" attitude in individuals.

GOP Massachusetts Governor Orders Nation's First Statewide LGBT Affirmative Action Program For Contractors.  Massachusetts Gov. Charles Baker (R) is the first state leader to issue an executive order that mandates the commonwealth alter its Supplier Diversity Program (SDP) to include LGBT-owned businesses along with those owned by other minority groups.  The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) said Baker's order is a "precedent-setting opportunity for tens of thousands of LGBT business owners" — one that will allow LGBT-owned businesses to be added to the state's SDP alongside women and minority-owned businesses.

ISIS Is Islamic and Bruce Jenner is a Man.  When Bruce Jenner says he is a woman now, the American left not only applauds him and starts referring to him as a she, but demands that everyone else do so at the risk of their livelihoods.  Only a bigot would think a man with a penis is a man when he says he is a woman.  The left has an ongoing war with reality where, in their quest for utopia, they have decided to shut out truths contrary to their reality.

This Isn't A Culture War, It's A War On Culture.  When liberal Houston — a city with a three-term lesbian mayor — overwhelming rejected an anti-discrimination ordinance for the transgendered (among others), a hysterical New York Times editorial accused voters of being transphobic hate mongers with blood on their hands.  There are, perhaps, some other possibilities.  For example, maybe a majority of voting Houstonians believed they could handle these social interactions without orders from the city council?  Maybe, without any animus, they believe genetically corresponding girls and boys should use girls and boys restrooms?  Maybe they find laws micromanaging the affairs and relationships of business owners intrusive?  I find myself in the last group.

Sex Reassignment Is Latest Company Benefit in Equality Push.  U.S. companies are swiftly adding health insurance benefits for employees who want to transition to another gender, a fairly inexpensive way to show they're serious about a diverse workforce because so few people actually use them.  More than 415 of about 780 firms surveyed for their friendliness toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers now cover related procedures, including hormone therapy and sex-reassignment surgeries, according to the Human Rights Campaign.  That's more than double the number in 2012, and up from just 49 in 2009.

The homosexuals have all but destroyed the Boy Scouts and now they've ruined Doritos.
Doritos' new rainbow colored corn chips are already causing a stir.  Doritos now has a new rainbow-colored corn chip in support of gay and lesbian teens — and they're already causing a stir.  Frito-Lay, the company that makes the snack food, unveiled Doritos Rainbows Thursday [9/17/2015], a limited-edition version of its Cool Ranch-flavored tortilla that come in shades of green, blue, purple, red, and orange inspired by colors of the Gay Pride flag.

Doritos Are Gay.  It gets better, as long as "it" doesn't refer to obesity.  I always figured the first Frito-Lay product to come out of the closet would be Ruffles, but...

Doritos creates rainbow-colored chips in support of LGBT youth.  Doritos today [9/17/2015] announced a new, limited-edition flavor of chips available only to those who donate to the It Gets Better Project, an organization devoted to supporting LGBT youth.  Doritos Rainbows chips are made up of multiple, rainbow-colored Doritos inspired by the Pride flag, the Frito-Lay company stated in a release.

Houston's real Hero, Lance Berkman Discusses Being Attacked by Houston's Real Zero Mayor Annise Parker After Transgender Bathroom Fail.  "Social justice"-minded liberal activists took a beating on Tuesday night as the HERO ordinance (Houston Equal Rights Ordinance) went down in flames at the hands of a majority of liberal voters in dark blue Houston. [...] Yet, no takedown of a fake HERO would be possible without real heroes.  One of those real heroes in Houston, who fought against the certifiable insanity that lesbian Mayor Annise Parker tried to perpetrate on citizens she's charged with protecting, was former Rice University and former Houston Astro star Lance Berkman who was considered by many — rightly or wrongly — to be the "face" of the anti-HERO effort.

NFL Refuses to Move Super Bowl from Houston After 'Bathroom Ordinance' Rejected.  The NFL will not move the 2017 Super Bowl from Houston after the losers in the so-called "bathroom" ordinance demanded on Wednesday that the league cancel or move the annual event a day after Houston voters overwhelmingly rejected the HERO (Houston Equal Rights Ordinance) proposition.

Bullies lose, sanity wins in Houston: There will be no man parts in the ladies room.  The bullies lost.  After a nearly 18-month slugfest, Houston's LGBT nondiscrimination ordinance was crushed in a landslide defeat Tuesday — rejected by 61 percent of voters.

As Transgender Students Make Gains, Schools Hesitate at Bathrooms.  Asked to call a transgender boy by a male name he has chosen for himself, teachers and administrators around the country have leaned toward a simple response:  Sure.  Allow a high school student who was born male but identifies as female to join the volleyball team?  Fine.  But as transgender students assert themselves more, schools have hesitated at the locker room and the bathroom.  Many have developed policies that require transgender students to use private changing and showering facilities, drawing opposition from these students, their parents and advocates who say the rules are discriminatory.

Houston LGBT nondiscrimination ordinance rejected by voters.  An ordinance that would have established nondiscrimination protections for gay and transgender people in Houston failed to win approval from voters on Tuesday [11/3/2015].

Conservatives win on election night as voters elect GOP governors, reject 'bathroom bill,' pot.  With 30 percent of precincts counted, The Associated Press declared that Houston's Proposition 1 had gone down to defeat. [...] The vote capped a pitched 18-month battle between Houston pastors and Mayor Annise Parker, the first openly lesbian mayor of a major city, who had championed the ordinance allowing people to use restrooms, showers and other public accommodations based on their gender identity, not their biological sex.

Feds back transgender teenager in school restroom dispute.  Schools can't prevent transgender students from using the restrooms that correspond with their gender identities without violating federal law, the Obama administration says.

Third option besides male, female on US passport sought in lawsuit by Colorado resident.  A Colorado resident denied a passport for refusing to identify as either male or female on the application form has sued the federal government to try to force the United States to join a handful of other countries that allow people to get travel documents without picking a gender.

Women Cry Foul as Glamour Magazine Names Bruce Jenner 'Woman of the Year'.  The politically correct Glamour Magazine has reportedly waived the one defining requirement of candidates for its "Woman of the Year" honor — a double X chromosome — in conferring the title for 2015 on crossdresser Bruce Jenner, a move many women are finding insulting.  The magazine is expected to formally announce its choice of Jenner as woman of the year, along with actress Reese Witherspoon, on November 3.

"Caitlyn" Jenner Named "Woman of the Year" Despite the Fact He [is a man].  The liberal feminazi media has decided to shove Bruce "Call Me Caitlyn" Jenner down our throats as some kind of noble hero once again.  This time, it's Glamour Magazine, which has decided to appoint him their "Woman of the Year" even though, you know, he's a [man].

Hospital Expels Doctor for Telling Medical Truth About Gay Sex.  We knew this would eventually happen.  Some medical facts are now considered verboten under penalty of career loss.  Dr. Paul Church was fired for telling the truth — really — medical truth.

Nine Signs of the Impending American Collapse.  Gender has come increasingly to be regarded not as a biological fact but as a social construct, and ultimately as an expression of one's "inner feelings" (as if there were any other kind) and affect-laden sense of sexual or personal identity.  A man is a woman is a trans is a tiger is a wolf — in other words, an idiosyncratic caricature of a normal human being. [...] Such aberrations follow from and go hand in hand with a longstanding, aggressive and doctrinaire feminism that has infected every important social and professional institution, leading to the legal and societal deprivileging and even the feminization of men, who must not only endure institutional inequities but must continually apologize for their existence — another recipe for social and cultural catastrophe.

The Humanist Hoax of 'Gender'.  The senseless LGBTQ, etc. gender categories being foisted upon a suckered America are directly equivalent to the dehumanizing racial categories of mulatto and quadroon.  They are cooked up in university "gender studies" departments by godless, power-hungry political minds without scientific or genetic justification.

Welcome to the United States of Alice.  "Sex-change" surgery was pioneered at Johns Hopkins Medical School but then discontinued in the 1970s since it failed to treat gender dysphoria.  "[T]ransgendering is a psychological rather than a biological matter," Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins, wrote recently.  "The treatment should strive to correct the false, problematic nature of the assumption [that one is of the opposite sex and this is a matter of choice] and to resolve the psychosocial conflicts provoking it."  A 30-year study in Sweden showed that after surgery, transgendered patients commit suicide at 20 times the rate of non-transgender people.  Meanwhile in 75 percent of cases without surgical or medical treatment, McHugh noted, transgender feelings spontaneously disappear.

The modern malleability of gender and race.  In the present postmodern world, we are told that there is no such thing as a biologically distinct gender.  Instead, gender is now socially constructed.  It can be defined by the individual in almost any way he or she sees fit.

Gay Crime and the Media.  The legacy media has twisted itself through several dimensions in in its effort to hide the fact that murderer Vester Flanagan/Bryce Williams was gay.  This is typical of the media response to violent crimes by homosexuals in recent years.

Raid of Rentboy, an Escort Website, Angers Gay Activists.  For some gay activists, it had shades of bathhouse raids and gay-bar roundups from decades ago.  On Tuesday [8/25/2015], federal authorities burst into the Union Square office of the gay-escort website Rentboy.com and arrested the chief executive and several employees on prostitution charges.  Rentboy, which federal authorities called the biggest male-escort website, had been around for almost two decades, allowing escorts to pay to advertise themselves.  It was well known in the gay community, hosting pool parties, dances and awards shows throughout the country.

Indy Star Orchestrates Secret Campaign To Promote LGBT Special Protections.  Breitbart News has exclusively obtained an email sent by the President and Publisher of the Indianapolis Star.  It invites "community leaders" to help plan and coordinate an aggressive, highly orchestrated campaign to "persuade" the Indiana state legislature to adopt sweeping special protections for Indiana's gay, lesbian and transgender communities.  The email, sent personally by Karen Ferguson Fuson, President and Publisher of the Star, was sent early this morning to an undisclosed list of business and media elites, together with gay rights activists.  It pulls no punches in its scope or its goals.

The Science Is Settled: Sexual Orientation Is Not Purely Biological.  The argument that sexual orientation is solely a biological phenomenon is extraordinarily weak, and this poll proves it.  Evolution does not favor high prevalence of homosexual attraction.  Homosexuality prevents reproduction, the chief goal of natural selection; while some scientists make the case that homosexuality has been preserved evolutionarily in order to preserve altruism for purposes of "kin selection," a high prevalence of homosexual attraction would threaten population growth.  Furthermore, since homosexual activity is highly linked in the human population to higher rates of disease and lower life expectancy, the notion that evolution would favor higher rates of homosexuality would be a difficult one to support.

This is satire, I hope.
I am royalty born in a commoner's body, and society is discriminating against me.  I was born in the body of a regular person, but in my mind, I feel I am royalty.  I can't help this feeling; it's just the way I am.  And it upsets me when people don't treat me according to my royal identity.  When men talk to me, they do not bend the knee; women do not bow or even curtsy.  And no one calls me "m'lord" or even apologizes for retreating from my royal presence without leave.  I didn't ask to be born this way; it's just the way I am.  And I feel very discriminated against by society, which treats me like a commoner.  When I go into a bathroom, everyone should leave so I can use it, but no one does.  That makes me very uncomfortable.  All I want to do is to go to the bathroom in peace!  I think every business should either make everyone leave when I enter the bathroom or have a bathroom that can be used only by royalty.

California college will now ask students to pick from 6 genders.  Beginning this fall, students at UC Irvine will have the option to self-identify about their sexual orientation on all university admissions forms, reports CBS Los Angeles.  The new form will ask students to pick one gender from six different choices.

The Editor says...
Why must an applicant select only one gender?  That sounds inflexible and exclusionary!

The Failed Missionary.  [Scroll down]  [President Obama] has created a position at the State Department for a roving gay activist, called the nation's "first special envoy for the human rights of L.G.B.T. persons," to meddle abroad.  Obama has dispatched that envoy to Africa but he wouldn't dare send him to an Islamic conference, say, in Riyadh.  Should Hillary Clinton win the presidency, such positions will multiply.  She was the first Secretary of State to declare gay activism abroad to be a "priority of our foreign policy."

Texas Supreme Court suspends Houston's 'bathroom bill,' sets up ballot fight.  The Texas Supreme Court gave Friday [7/24/2015] the Houston city council 30 days either to repeal a civil-rights ordinance allowing opposite-sex bathroom use or place it before the voters on the November ballot.  The 12-page decision says that the council ran afoul of the city charter when it refused to act after the city secretary certified a year ago the signatures submitted by a pastor-led coalition, which had moved to force a vote on the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO).

The Gay Mafia Wants to Stop You From Doing This.  There is an organized movement within the gay rights community that is sometimess referred to as the "gay mafia."  They want to harass those who disagree with their agenda and silence any dissent from their agenda.  They have worked overtime in the past twenty-four hours because an AP poll shows that the number of Americans who now support gay marriage has declined since the Supreme Court's ruling and a majority believe Christian businesses should not be compelled to provide goods and services to gay weddings.  They cannot have that.  They also cannot have books and data that dispute their claims.  One such book is by my friend Ryan Anderson.

Bruce Jenner, Brett Favre, and the cultural totalitarians.  In a truly surreal display, NFL great Brett Favre is being denounced by the left's new cultural commissars for not clapping long and hard enough at ESPN's ESPY awards, as Bruce/"Caitlyn" Jenner received a "Courage" award for his efforts to become a woman.  Oddly, Favre did applaud — not doing so would have been a grave heresy to America's new church of progressive inquisitors.  His sin was not applauding enthusiastically enough.  The New York Post placed a video of Favre's blasphemous insufficient clapping, juxtaposed with Jenner's celebratory ascent to the stage. [...] No, I'm not making this up.  In the New America, not only must we accept transgenderism, but we must literally applaud it — and literally applaud it long, loud, and hard.  And remember, Big Brother is watching you.

Every Day, A New Way to Hate.  Unusually slow on the uptick, the neo-puritan elect have yet to coin a term for those who "hate" or "fear" the "transitioning" among us.  "Trannyphobia" might have worked, but the playful term "tranny," which was acceptable until about a week ago, has joined the n-word and the f-word among the unutterable.  Transgender activists will decide on a label soon enough.  The Islamists did.  In one of the more curious twists in recent progressive history, a media savvy cell in America chose to mimic gay activists who had been successfully using the "phobia" trope to defame opponents of their political agenda.  The Islamists saw the same potential in the concept of "Islamophobia."  With the media's help, they could and did tie their struggle to those of other marginalized groups and, in the words of one former activist, "beat up their critics."

The Queering of America.  The U.S. Supreme Court's decision striking down state laws barring same-sex "marriage" is the culmination of a decades-long corrosive process, one that has been methodically guided by a strategic subversive plan.  All moral people are rightly outraged by this official mockery of the natural law, the moral law, and the divine law.  But we should not be shocked or surprised, as the unmistakable signs that this was coming have been ever more obvious with each and every concession to the "gay" lobby and "gay" culture.  This article originally appeared in the June 8, 1998 issue of The New American, 17 years ago.

Political correctness can easily put you out of a job.
Man fired over anti-gay posting sues Ford, job firm.  A contract engineer is suing his employer, as well as Ford, for discrimination after losing an automotive design job because he posted comments criticizing the automaker's support of the gay community.  Thomas Banks of Ypsilanti filed a federal lawsuit against Rapid Global Business Solutions, an engineering and employment service in Troy, and Ford, where he had been on assignment at a Dearborn plant for more than three years.

The Big Gay Lie.  Before looking at what scientific studies tell us here's some anecdotal evidence that people may already be familiar with:
  •   When AIDS first struck gays fought tooth and nail to keep the bathhouses — where gays go for anonymous sex with strangers — open.  Gays are so addicted to sex that even in the face of a fatal disease they didn't want to curb their promiscuous lifestyle.
  •   AIDS. While we're constantly told that it's not a gay disease the reality is that in the U.S. almost no one but gays get AIDS from sex.  Yet even though condoms don't stop the spread of AIDS gays continue to risk their lives to have sex with strangers.
  •   While everyone condemns crimes by priests and ministers against children, the fact is that 81% of the victims of priests have been young boys; the problem is a gay one.
  •   NAMBLA — which advocates sex with 3 year olds — is an accepted part of the gay community.  The organization marched in the SF Gay Pride parade for years before pressure from straights got the organization booted out due to bad optics.

Christians Must Brace Themselves for the Coming Persecution in Obama's LGBT America.  Rod Dreher, writing in an article in Time Magazine, has this to say about the recent US Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage:  "LGBT activists and their fellow travelers will be coming after social conservatives.  The Supreme Court has now, in constitutional doctrine, said that homosexuality is equivalent to race.  The next goal of activists will be a long-term campaign to remove tax-exempt status from dissenting religious institutions.  The more immediate goal will be the shunning and persecution of dissenters within civil society."

The Gay Lifestyle Fallacy.  The United States is sinking into the moral decay of tribal warfare.  No longer can Christians state their case without a torrent of hatred coming from both atheists and those in the gay rights cabal.  Any opinion that does not toe the progressive line will not be tolerated.  This comes from the party of tolerance.  Your identity, your lifestyle, even you very dignity will be trashed if you do not comply.  This way of thinking will soon be a coercive force in every citizens life.  Much of it starts with those who speak out from within the gay community, or those who have been raised inside the gay community and have felt its corrosive way of thinking first hand.

Gay Man Files $70M Suit Against Bible Publishers Over 'Homosexual' Verses.  A homosexual man filed a $70 million lawsuit against Bible publishers alleging that their version of the Bible that refers to homosexuality as a sin violates his constitutional rights and has caused him emotional distress. [...] In his hand-written suit, 39 year old Fowler makes many claims against Zondervan including malicious negligence, strict liability, malice, libel, and violating his civil rights.  He's seeking $60 million from Zondervan and $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing.

Oregon allowing 15-year-olds to get state-subsidized sex-change operations.  The list of things 15-year-olds are not legally allowed to do in Oregon is long:  Drive, smoke, donate blood, get a tattoo — even go to a tanning bed.  But, under a first-in-the-nation policy quietly enacted in January that many parents are only now finding out about, 15-year-olds are now allowed to get a sex-change operation.  Many residents are stunned to learn they can do it without parental notification — and the state will even pay for it through its Medicaid program, the Oregon Health Plan.  "It is trespassing on the hearts, the minds, the bodies of our children," said Lori Porter of Parents' Rights in Education.  "They're our children.  And for a decision, a life-altering decision like that to be done unbeknownst to a parent or guardian, it's mindboggling."

Jimmy Carter: 'I Believe Jesus Would Approve of Gay Marriage'.  Former President Jimmy Carter argued Tuesday Jesus Christ would "approve" of gay marriage if he were around in an interview with HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill.  Carter offered up his support for the recent Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide, while using Jesus to prop up his reasoning.

Carter: 'I Believe Jesus Would Approve Of Gay Marriage'.  Carter took on the issue from a Biblical perspective and declared that it was his view Jesus would have approved of the gay marriage.  "I believe Jesus would. I don't have any verse in scripture," Carter said.  'I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that's just my own personal belief.  I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else, and I don't see that gay marriage damages anyone else."

The Editor says...
Former Sunday School teacher Jimmy Carter seems to have forgotten the story about the woman at the well, among other things.

Same-sex marriage is only the beginning.  That the majority threw a bone to religious people, their churches and institutions, saying they could continue to preach and teach that homosexual marriage is wrong, will almost certainly be challenged by gay activists and secularists whose goal is to drive religious people, and especially Christians, out of the public square.  What might be a preview of things to come occurred last week when the Fairfax County (Va.) School Board voted 10-2 to approve a "gender identity" curriculum for children starting in seventh grade.  News reports said the crowd that showed up for the vote overwhelmingly opposed the decision, but majorities no longer matter.

Huge crowd for Chicago [Gay] Pride Parade.  Revelers streaming to Boystown for the city's annual Pride Parade today [6/28/2015] have an extra reason to celebrate after the landmark Supreme Court decision making gay marriage legal throughout the country.

Gay Rights Leaders Push for Federal Civil Rights Protections.  Exhilarated by the Supreme Court's endorsement of same-sex marriage, gay rights leaders have turned their sights to what they see as the next big battle:  obtaining federal, state and local legal protections in employment, housing, commerce and other arenas, just like those barring discrimination based on race, religion, sex and national origin.  The proposals pit advocates against many of the same religious conservatives who opposed legalizing same-sex marriage, and who now see the protection of what they call religious liberty as their most urgent task.  These opponents argue that antidiscrimination laws will inevitably be used to force religious people and institutions to violate their beliefs, whether by providing services for same-sex weddings or by employing gay men and lesbians in church-related jobs.

LGBT Leaders: Gay Marriage Is Not Enough.  [Scroll down]  Poverty, contraception, and abortion might not seem like inherently LGBT issues but they are certainly intertwined with them.  According to the Center for American Progress, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women are more likely to live in poverty than their heterosexual and non-transgender counterparts.  They are also at increased risk of sexual assault, as the National Center for Lesbian Rights notes, which makes abortion access essential for lesbians and bisexual women.

Refusing to Bow at the Altar of Homosexuality.  I was a law student when I first learned of the consequences of not being politically correct concerning homosexuality.  A former Miss America's contract as the citrus growers' brand-ambassador was allowed to lapse because she had successfully campaigned for the repeal of a pro-homosexual ordinance in Miami-Dade County.  She was quoted as saying, "What these people really want, hidden behind obscure legal phrases, is the legal right to propose to our children that theirs is an acceptable, alternate way of life."  She was publicly humiliated — "pied" on national television — and her name — Anita Bryant — became synonymous with something called "homophobia" and "hate speech."

Our Nightmare of Reason.  Today an American conservative might well feel like a Kafkaesque protagonist, as the country appears to be drifting increasingly into absurdist territory under the leadership of Barack Obama, the Democratic Party, and leftist elites in the media and entertainment industries.  The lionization of Bruce Jenner's makeover into a pseudo-woman is but a symptom of this slide into mass irrationality. [...] The idea that some men, despite the obvious biological evidence, are in fact women, and vice versa, has become generally accepted by a large percentage of the country, and endorsed by none other than the president himself.  Rather than society sympathetically tolerating Jenner, or offering him mental health treatment, he and other so-called transsexuals (like convicted Army private Bradley Manning) can now medically mutilate themselves at public expense.  They can compel girls to use public bathrooms and showers with biological boys who claim to be female.

Feds: Transgender Bathroom Choice a Matter of 'Health and Safety'.  The Department of Labor (DOL) issued instructions for how private businesses should address a transgender individual who wants to use a different bathroom, arguing that allowing transwomen to use the ladies bathroom is a matter of "health and safety."  "The core belief underlying these policies is that all employees should be permitted to use the facilities that correspond with their gender identity," according to the guidance, issued by the DOL's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).  "For example, a person who identifies as a man should be permitted to use men's restrooms, and a person who identifies as a woman should be permitted to use women's restrooms."  "The employee should determine the most appropriate and safest option for him- or herself," the document said.

Caitlyn Jenner and the War on Facts.  [Scroll down]  Why should anyone care about someone else's personal decisions?  What difference does it make?  These questions, however, are based on the assumption that "live and let live" is a two-way street.  Unfortunately, for most hard-core transgender supporters, that's just not the case:  In their world, we all must agree.  Because of this, many people are simply too scared to say what they really think.

Repentant Transsexual Warns Jenner: The 'Hangover' Is Coming.  Amidst the media euphoria surrounding the former Bruce Jenner's gender reassignment surgery and cover photo on Vanity Fair, a 74-year-old transsexual who deeply regrets his decision has come forward to caution those who think that transgenderism solves people's psychosexual problems.  In a CNN interview on Tuesday [6/2/2015], Walt Heyer warned viewers that the relief accompanying gender reassignment surgery doesn't last.  After Jenner expressed exhilaration over the Vanity Fair cover, Heyer responded that such elation is normal, but transient.

Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner Is Asking Too Much.  To me, this conversation is beginning to feel very 1984.  I have been told that I must refer to a man as a woman.  If I decline to do so, however politely, I am demonized as an oppressor, a bigot and a hater.  I have been told that I must use the female pronouns:  she, her, and hers, not the male pronouns, he, his, and him.  If I decline to do so, however politely, I am excluded from decent society.  I am classed with murderers.  I am very wary of any movement that demands that people change their everyday language and that demonizes those who decline to do so.  If we redefine a woman as a person who poses in a corset and shows substantial cleavage on the cover of Vanity Fair, what does that make a woman who has had a double mastectomy and dresses modestly and hasn't access to Vanity Fair?  My question is not rhetorical, it is not a joke, and it is not trivial.  Definitions get to the scaffolding of society and the essence of things.  If we don't answer this question now, it will become less and less of a joke as we proceed down this slippery slope.

The Editor took the liberty (while he still has it) to alter the headline above.

Calling Bruce Jenner a Woman Is an Insult to Women.  Parents, be aware:  soon the magazine rack in the checkout line at the supermarket will feature this profoundly disturbing image of Bruce Jenner.  The picture is plastered right on the cover of the next Vanity Fair issue, and it shows Bruce dolled up in makeup and hair extensions, posing in a corset, with parts of his face, forehead, and throat shaved off for cosmetic reasons, and his chest enhanced by hormone pills, Photoshop, and silicone.  The idea is to make the 65-year-old grandfather look like a college girl, but the effect is that he looks like a distorted version of neither.  What he most closely resembles is a mentally disordered man who is being manipulated by disingenuous liberals and self-obsessed gay activists.  Far from having the appearance of a genuine woman, he reminds me of someone who is being abandoned to his delusions by a culture of narcissistic imbeciles.

Left's Gifts to Language.  [Scroll down]  Liberal legislators nationwide are casually adopting laws to include this new and exciting language into the public realm because they are pressured.  Pressure by small, vocal and dedicated groups like LGBTQ result in huge societal impacts because once it's law, implementation of it forces this 'inclusionary" language to be considered as common as pencils.  Liberal legislators know they gain additional votes for their next election, and gain a very loyal constituency whose impact far Warren outweighs their numbers.  Because laws don't really attach to any of them personally (legislation is essentially anonymous as to its origins) they don't worry criticism will attach to them; they will even verbally side with critics.  Say one thing, vote another; it happens all the time in politics.

The Dictatorship of Godless Perverts [...] cannot permit anyone to question the regime's absolute authority.  The commissars of the regime will tell you "what it means to be a man, and what it means to be a woman," and you are not permitted to talk back to them.  There can be no discussion or debate.  If you do not endorse the Official Truth, you must be silenced.  You must be punished if you refuse to repudiate your opposition, because everything you "consider natural and normal" — your "basic, deep-rooted ideas" — "will need to change."

Killing the Scouts.  [Scroll down]  For example, it would be wonderful if the Boys Scouts took the opportunity to teach young boys about the "born that way" myth.  In spite of the popular meme perpetuated by the homosexual agenda, no one is "born gay." [...] [I]t would also be nice if Boy Scout leadership told the truth on the tremendous health dangers associated with sexual immorality.  This is especially the case for those involved in a homosexual lifestyle.  There are abundant data that reveal the dangers of a homosexual lifestyle. [...] Men who have sex with men account for 75% of primary and secondary syphilis cases in the U.S. and are 17 times more likely to develop anal cancer than are heterosexual men.  Though homosexuals make up only about 2% of the population, homosexual men account for about two-thirds of all new HIV infections.  The Canadian healthcare system notes that the life expectancy of homosexual men is 20 years less than the average.

You 'Must be Made' to Obey.  [Scroll down]  Of course, if homosexual behavior, something denounced as both "vile affections" and "an abomination" throughout both the Old and New Testaments, is no longer sexual sin, then there can be no sexual sin whatsoever.  To coerce, through the power of the police state, faithful Christians to abandon the millennia-old biblical sexual ethic and embrace the sin of Sodom would likewise require that Christians sign-off on fornication, adultery, incest and bestiality.  Such is the unnatural nature of government-mandated moral relativism.  "But this isn't free speech, it's hate speech!" come the mournful cries of the ill-informed and the ill-prepared, desperately afraid to debate the issues on the merits.

Americans Vastly Overestimate Size of LGBT Population.  Same-sex marriage is one of the fastest-moving social issues in U.S. history, having become legal in state after state as Americans cheer it in ever-growing numbers.  But one thing is slightly off-kilter:  Americans seem to have absolutely no idea just how many of their fellow citizens are lesbians or gay men.  In fact, they think that 23 percent of Americans, or almost one in four, are are gays or lesbians, a Gallup survey released Thursday [5/21/2015] revealed.  That's way off:  The polling organization most recently found that less than 4 percent self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

Mad Max and the Dream-Work of Homosexuality.  A number of conservatives have been puzzled by the left's simultaneous defense of gay men and Islamists.  The cognitive dissonance might belie a deeper coherence:  both Islamists and gay men aspire to separate men from women, albeit in different realms, to the noted benefit of men and to the obvious rejection of women as autonomous beings with dignity and rights.

First They Shut You Up, Then You Will Be Made to Care.  A young man last week pointed out that transgenderism is largely a mental health issue and started receiving threats on twitter and general harassment.  The Fire Chief in Atlanta referred to homosexuality as a sin and lost his job.  Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty quoted scripture and the left tried to drive him from the airwaves.  The Benham Brothers are evangelical Christians and had their TV deal cancelled for offending the gay mafia.  Christians will be made to shut up.

Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is a 'Mental Disorder' — Sex Change is 'Biologically Impossible'.  Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a "mental disorder" that merits treatment, that sex change is "biologically impossible," and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.  Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a "disorder of 'assumption'" — the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.  He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people.

The Missing Word in the Immigration Debate.  [Scroll down]  Note the strident insistence with which liberals demand that we say "reproductive rights" instead of "abortion", "gender" instead of "sex", and "undocumented" instead of "illegal".  Each of these word choices hides some aspect of an issue that liberals want to keep hidden. [...] Similarly, by insisting that homosexuality is a matter of "gender" preference, liberals try to divert attention away from the fact that the primary objection most people have to homosexuality concerns certain grotesque sexual acts.

15 Statistics That Destroy Liberal Narratives.  [#15] The survey taken by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asked a simple question of 34,557 adults nationwide:  "Which of the following best represents how you think of yourself?"  The five possible answers were straight, lesbian/gay, bisexual, "something else" and "I don't know the answer."  Transgenders, the "T" in LGBT, were not included.  The survey found that a mere 1.6 percent of the adult population self-identifies as "lesbian/gay," and an even smaller 0.7 percent told interviewers they were bisexual.  The bisexuals were outnumbered by the 1.1 percent who didn't know, wouldn't answer or said they were "something else."  This result was far from the 10 percent that homosexual rights advocates have claimed since the 1970s.

Nothing but the Truth.  [Scroll down]  If the lie is repeated enough, if outside information or opposing viewpoints are not permitted or tolerated, if those receiving the disinformation are hungry, dehumanized, uneducated, or tortured enough, anyone can become a believer in the inconceivable (that two plus two could really equal five) or the implausible (that global warming is a greater existential threat than radical Islamic terrorists).  This is how we came to believe there are dozens of genders even though thousands of years of science and human history confirm the existence of only two.  This is how we came to believe that homosexuality is not a choice but an alternative physical attribute that cannot be controlled; that gay sex is equivalent to heterosexual sex, even though only the latter results in reproduction; that abortion is a social good and constitutional right that should be encouraged; that a family with two daddies is exactly the same as a family with a mommy and a daddy; that blended and broken families are just as good as traditional families; and, that fathers are superfluous.

You Don't Need a Rainbow Sticker to Let People Know You're Black.  The gay rights movement cannot abide a middle ground and a free exercise of religion for a simple reason — homosexuality is not normal in nature, in historic relationships, or in the sacred texts of almost all religions.  The gay rights movement must therefore censor and subjugate dissent.  Any who point out the lack of historic or religious acceptance or the lack of its ready existence in nature or, for that matter, the lack of scientific evidence showing homosexuality is a birth trait as opposed to a choice or external factors, must be shut up.  Homosexuals and the gay rights movement crave not tolerance, but the veneer of normalcy.

Gay-conversion therapy ban to be introduced in House.  Opponents of sexual orientation change efforts, such as Reps. Ted W. Lieu and Jackie Speier, both California Democrats, say being homosexual is not a disorder or illness, and efforts to change one's sexual orientation are wrong and harmful.  Supporters of such therapy counter that it has helped many people successfully reduce or eliminate their unwanted same-sex attractions, and it's wrong to trample people's rights to seek the counseling of their choice.

The Editor says...
For about 8,000 years, we all agreed that homosexuality was perverse.  Everybody, that is, except the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah, who were wiped out in fireball delivered by God himself.  (What does that tell you?)  It wasn't until about 30 years ago that anyone dared to suggest that homosexuality was a normal and natural way to express your love for the truck driver you just met 20 minutes ago.

Just Murder, Not a 'Hate Crime'.  [Scroll down]  It is important to understand how the media deliberately manipulate perceptions.  The murder of Matthew Shepard was portrayed as a hate crime, despite every evidence to the contrary, because gay activists figured out that depicting homosexuals as victims — and depicting opponents of the gay agenda as motivated by dangerously violent "hate" — was the key to political success.  Both the news media and the entertainment industry have seized on this theme, promoting the Gay Victimhood narrative so relentlessly as to foment paranoia and generate a certain number of fake hate-crime hoaxes.  Meanwhile, public school administrators are twisting themselves into pretzels to be "inclusive" and "tolerant" of homosexuality, implementing "anti-bullying" campaigns based on the belief that our society is pervaded by an irrational homophobia that causes gay kids to commit suicide.

LGBT Undermining of the Constitution, Culture, and Conservatives.  Conservative commentator and legal analyst Matt Barber elaborated that most LGBT individuals are part of a "sexual anarchy ... [a] cultural Marxist movement."  They seek "to burn down the white picket fence," not traditional bourgeois committed relationships.  Kincaid analyzed the Marxist backgrounds of various LGBT movement founders and declared that "Communism is not dead," for Karl Marx called for family abolition, "not just an economic theory."  Kincaid focused on American Communist Party member Harry Hay, whose FBI surveillance file is available at ASI's website.  Hay wore a "NAMBLA walks with me" sign at a San Francisco gay parade and later pursued the occult as a "radical fairie."  Journalist James Simpson explained in his presentation that actually, the "left does not care about gay rights."  As Communist regimes indicate with their criminalization of homosexuality throughout history, the "issue is always the revolution."

It's Not Hateful To Point Out Bruce Jenner Isn't A Woman.  Of all the trends currently working their way through journalism, there is perhaps none so baffling as the media's indulgence in the transgender narrative.  Journalists appear to have acquiesced to this ideology en masse.  No less a formidable source than the "AP Stylebook" declared a few years ago that Associated Press employees are to use "the pronoun preferred by the individuals" in cases where confusion may arise. [...] Journalists should not buy into this.  Simply as a matter of factual accuracy, it is nonsensical:  if tomorrow I declared myself head of the executive branch of the U.S. government, for instance, the AP would not suddenly be required to call me President Payne.

Obama's Lawyer Basically Tells SCOTUS That Religious Schools Are Toast.  During oral arguments made in the same-sex marriage case heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday [4/28/2015] (Obergefell v. Hodges), Justices Roberts and Alito questioned Solicitor General Donald Verrilli about the rights of religious schools if the Court decides to impose same-sex marriage on the states.  Justice Roberts asked if religious schools that provide housing to married students would be required to offer such housing to same-sex couples.  Verrilli demurred, saying there is currently no federal law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation.  "Those issues are going to have to be worked out," he said.

Urgent Action Needed for Indiana HIV Outbreak, CDC Says.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday [4/24/2015] that "urgent action" was needed to control the outbreak in Indiana's Scott County and said it's possible other cities or towns are vulnerable.  A combination of easily available prescription painkillers, a poor economy and a lack of education are fueling the Indiana outbreak.

The Editor says...
Apparently the government wants you to believe this AIDS outbreak has nothing to do with I.V. drugs, prostitutes, promiscuity or sodomy.  I'm surprised the CDC isn't putting the blame on global warming, which seems to be the left's default culprit lately.

This was unthinkable 50 years ago.  Thanks, liberals!
CA ballot initiative would keep boys out of girls' bathrooms.  A group called Privacy for All is trying to get enough signatures to create a ballot initiative in California that would prevent boys from going into girls' bathrooms and locker rooms, even if the boys wiggle when they walk and talk in high-pitched feminine voices.

Obama Warns Parents: Your Kids Are Mine.  President Barack Obama has issued a declaration on human sexuality and what constitutes moral and mental health for the nation.  He is warning Christian parents that the federal government wants their kids.  This is not how the story is being reported, however.  For example, a story in Politico carries the headline, "Barack Obama denounces 'conversion therapies' for gays," with the words "conversion therapies" in quotes, as if to suggest there's some doubt that homosexuals can return to being straight.  This is all too typical of the mentality that grips the major media and is designed to suggest that homosexuality is somehow natural and cannot be changed.  But honest journalism, which is virtually non-existent when covering homosexuality, would take a different approach to the topic.

Transgenderism: A Return to Pagan Mythology.  Declaring one's self to be other than what one is created is an assault on material and human reality — an exercise in magical thinking that is bound to run up against the reality of the created order, including the reality of humankind created as male and female.  Yet a recent article in the Daily Beast contains a complete glossary of gender options.  The glossary is currently comprised of 51 genders, among them an option to be "gender fluid," that is, having the ability to flit from one gender to another according to what the individual would like to be.  The idea is that though biologically one may be born with male or female parts, gender is a choice, not a fixed category.  Instead, gender is determined by how an individual feels about his or her self.

Street preacher quoting from the Bible fined for calling homosexuality an 'abomination'.  A street preacher who quoted from the Bible has been fined for using "threatening" language.  Mike Overd, 50 and a former paratrooper, quoted from Leviticus on Taunton high street to state that homosexuality is an "abomination".  He was fined £200 and ordered to pay £1,200 in costs and compensation by Judge Shamin Qureshi, sitting at Bristol Crown Court.  The judge said Overd "knew full well the power of words to hurt" and claimed he could have used other less offensive parts of the Bible to quote from on the issue of homosexuality.

Gay rights activists to Christians — surrender, or else.  A few years ago I hosted gay activist attorney Andrea Ritchie on my radio program and asked her whether she believed the homosexual lobby could peacefully coexist with traditional Christian morality.  After a very pregnant pause, she responded pointedly:  "Sure, if Christians will give up their resistance to our cause."  Today, in the midst of the inane opposition to the Indiana religious freedom bill, her alarming words prove frighteningly prophetic.

Liberals Ruin Everything: St. Patrick's Day Parade Edition.  While the glories of capitalism may have turned St. Patrick's Day into an opportunity to make some good money, it is still a religious feast day.  I am not at all asserting that a parade is some sort of sacred religious event, but if the local cardinal is your grand marshal, there are still some ties to the Church.

Gay groups still unhappy with NYC St. Patrick's parade.  For the second consecutive year, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council are boycotting the nation's largest and, at 250 years, oldest St. Patrick's Day Parade.  The reason:  After a backlash last year against a ban on gay groups led to de Blasio being the first mayor in 20 years to stay away from the popular event, parade organizers said they would allow only one gay group to march with a banner in this year's parade.

Ben Carson eclipses his own presidential announcement with gay prison comments.  In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo that aired Wednesday, Carson dismissed comparisons between restrictions on gay marriage and slavery.  "People have no control over their race," Carson said, adding that in his view people do have somecontrol over their sexual orientation.  "Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they're gay," the former head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital said.  "So, did something happen while they were in there?  Ask yourself that question."

Blinding cases of syphilis found on West Coast, now potentially in L.A..  On Thursday [3/12/2015], the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued an advisory for primary and eye-care providers to look out for symptoms associated with the disease, which is usually a complication of primary or secondary syphilis infections.  With more than a dozen cases — most of them among gay men — reported between Seattle and San Francisco and now potentially two in Southern California, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation is calling for medical professionals to do more.

Utah officer who objected to role in gay pride parade says he was unfairly labeled a bigot.  A former Salt Lake City police officer who was put on leave and later resigned after he objected to riding in the motorcycle brigade at the front of last year's gay pride parade is speaking out against what he believes was a violation of his religious liberties.

Policeman Claiming he was forced out over LGBT controversy mulls lawsuit.  After his bosses allegedly branded him a bigot and the Salt Lake City Police Department allegedly hounded him out of his job, Eric Moutsos has finally broken his silence to explain his motivations for not wanting to perform motorcycle tricks at a gay pride parade last summer.  He also explains his version of what really happened.

Another Christian Teacher Investigated for Facebook Comments Against 'Gay' Lifestyle.  A New Jersey school teacher has found herself in hot water for using her Facebook page to express her moral outrage over the normalization of homosexuality.  As reported by the New York Times, Viki Knox, a special education teacher at Union High School in Union Township, used Facebook to complain about a school display recognizing October as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History month, writing that "homosexuality is a perverted spirit that has existed from the beginning of creation."

HIV strain that becomes AIDS in 3 years identified in Cuba.  A strain of HIV that could develop into AIDS before patients realize they are infected has been identified in Cuba.  The aggressive variant was seen in patients who developed AIDS within three years of contacting the virus, according to a new study.  It usually takes five to 10 years.

Kansas governor erases protections for LGBT state employees with executive order.  With a swipe of his pen, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback wiped out protections offered to state employees facing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.  Brownback, a Republican, issued the executive order Tuesday [2/10/2015], doing away with an order enacted by his predecessor, former Gov. Kathleen Sibelius.

New York Times Endorses Thought Crimes.  Kelvin Cochran, the Fire Chief of Atlanta, published a book (with permission from the Ethics Office for the City of Atlanta), in which he expressed his Christian faith on sex, marriage, and life. For that, the New York Times says he included "virulent anti-gay views."  Actually, Cochran endorsed orthodox Christian views.  He was fired more than a year after the book came out.  A retiring lesbian fire captain suddenly felt brave enough to complain.  The Mayor, needed urban, white liberals for his next election threw the Fire Chief under the bus. [...] It does not matter that there is no evidence of discrimination.  His thoughts preclude him from his job.

Christians rally to defend fire chief who wrote 'anti-gay' book.  Kelvin Cochran is a decorated firefighter.  He is also a devout Christian.  He's a deacon at a Baptist church and also teaches Sunday school.  By all accounts — he is a decent and honorable man.  And now — he is unemployed.  Cochran, who served seven years as the chief of the Atlanta Fire Departmant [sic] lost his job over a book he wrote about biblical morality titled, "Who Told You That You Were Naked?"  A small portion of the book contained what critics called homophobic language.

Atlanta Fire Chief: I was fired because of my Christian faith.  [Kelvin] Cochran had been suspended in November because of a passage he wrote about homosexuality in a book titled, "Who Told You That You Were Naked?" The book's theme is about biblical morality.  "This is about judgment," Mayor Reed said during a Tuesday [1/6/2015] press conference.  "This is not about religious freedom.  This is not about free speech.  Judgment is the basis of the problem."  Last November the mayor posted a public condemnation of the fire chief on his official Facebook page.  "I profoundly disagree with and am deeply disturbed by the sentiments expressed in the paperback regarding the LGBT community," the mayor wrote.  "I will not tolerate discrimination of any kind within my administration."

LGBT groups protest police abuses, block S.F. streets.  Close to 200 people, many from San Francisco's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, blocked streets in and around the city's Castro district Wednesday morning [12/24/2014], rallying against what they described as systemic police violence toward minorities.

Eric Holder's Transgendered Mutilation of Title VII.  [Eric] Holder's reference to "a different sex" is badly confused and odd.  A man who identifies as a woman — yes, even a man who butchers and drugs himself to appear more like a woman — is still a man.  Indeed, when anyone points out this elementary biological reality, transgender activists insist that gender is fundamentally different from sex.  Holder states that the federal government's "approach to this issue has ... evolved over time."  That's his way of acknowledging that his position is directly contrary to the position that DOJ had previously taken.  As Christian Adams points out, Holder is instead following the dubious lead of the reckless adventurists at the EEOC.  And while Holder states that "courts have reached varying conclusions" on the issue, his citations reveal that he's adopting the position taken by a federal district judge over that taken by a federal court of appeals.

Left-Wing Group Calls for Federal Crackdown on LGBT Discrimination.  A report from the left-wing Center for American Progress says gays, lesbians, and transsexuals will not fully realize the promise of America unless and until the Federal government extends to them widespread protection from all kinds of discrimination.  The 76-page report calls for all levels of government to make every kind of discrimination illegal and to expend taxpayer money to enforce the new laws.  The report also calls for private businesses to reeducate their employees about LGBT persons.

Transgender Bathroom Bill Overturned.  A city ordinance in Fayetteville, Ark, dubbed the transgender bathroom bill because it allows biological males who claim they are females to use restroom facilities for women, was overturned on Tuesday, Dec. 9, largely because of the intense lobbying efforts of Michelle Duggar, the matriarch of the reality-TV show 19 Kids & Counting, carried by The Learning Channel.

Benham Brothers on Anti-Duggar Campaign: 'Truth Is Considered Hate to Those Who Hate The Truth'.  Jason and David Benham, two Christian entrepreneurs who have been targeted by gay activists for their belief in traditional marriage, are speaking out about the campaign by those same activists who are seeking the cancellation of the popular TLC television series "19 Kids and Counting," accusing the Duggar family of "fear mongering."  "Since when is it considered 'fear mongering' to say that God designed a man to be with a woman, or that kids deserve to have a mom and a dad, or that the ladies room should be for biological females?" David Benham told CNSNews.com.  "Saying the Duggars are inciting people to hate is simply propaganda."

Barack Obama: A Companion of Fools.  It seems that Barack Obama has a propensity to surround himself with some questionable friends. [...] Take for example one foolish companion the president walks with:  the prominent gay rights activist Terrence P. Bean, 66, who has been indicted for allegedly sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.  At a 2009 Human Rights Campaign dinner, Mr. Obama called the alleged child molester a "great friend and supporter."  As a matter of fact, Obama's "great friend" Terrence has frequented the White House at least six times in the past couple of years.  An ardent and influential supporter of many prominent Democrats, in addition to visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Bean has also been a guest of the president on Air Force One flying around at $181K an hour.

End the Media Blackout on Gay Rapists.  Liberal politics, not people, matter to our evil media.  That's precisely why they rush to their cameras, microphones and keyboards when news breaks about a pedophile Catholic priest having his way with altar boys.  Not because they care about the altar boys, but because they want to discredit the Catholic Church.  If you doubt that fact, ask yourself why you haven't heard much from the Mainstream Media about the recent arrest of 66 year-old Terrence Bean, charged with raping a 15-year old boy.  The answer is because Terrence isn't a Catholic priest.  Instead, he's the co-founder and on the board of directors of the homosexual organization ironically called the "Human Rights Campaign."

CNN Covers Sex Abuse Case Against Obama 'Friend,' As Big Three Censor Story.  CNN stood out on Sunday and Monday for actually covering the sex abuse charges against Terry Bean, a "major fundraiser for President Obama," as correspondent Erin McPike labeled him.  The cable network devoted three full segments and two news briefs to the criminal charges against Bean, who is also the co-founder of the left-wing homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign.  As of Monday morning [11/24/2014], the Big Three networks have yet to cover the story on their morning and evening newscasts.

Network Silence: Obama Ally, Gay Activist Arrested for Child Sex Abuse.  Here's today's installment of "Imagine if this had been a conservative..."  As Newsbusters reported last week, the founder of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which markets itself as the nation's largest LGBT rights organization, was arrested Nov. 18 for allegedly sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.  Terrence Bean, 66, is a Democratic money man, prominent liberal activist and Obama ally.  Bean's 25-year-old former boyfriend was also charged in the crimes. [...] Since the story broke Wednesday [11/19/2014], local media and conservative media have covered it.  The Washington Post ran a brief AP story on the arrest, but the networks have yet to report on it.

Major Obama fundraiser arrested for sex with minor.  He's a mega bundler for President Obama. He's been on Air Force One.  He's shared a Christmas visit with Michelle Obama at the White House.  And now he's being accused of sex with a minor.  Terry Bean, 66, a gay activist and major Democratic fund-raiser, was arrested Wednesday in Portland, Ore., for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy.  Bean's ex-boyfriend, Kiah Lawson, 25, was arrested Thursday in connection with the same incident.

Top Obama bundler accused of child rape.  Conservatives complain that President Obama gets a free pass from the media, which acts as a de-facto public-relations shop for the Democrat in the White House.  Never has that charge seemed truer than now as an ugly rape scandal unfolds on the West Coast.  On Wednesday [11/19/2014], Portland, Ore. police arrested Terrence Patrick Bean, who has been charged with two felony counts of having sex with a minor last year.  This man is not just any old guy accused of having sex with a 15-year-old — he's a big-money Democratic donor and liberal political activist with connections inside the Obama White House.  Bean raised more than a half-million dollars for Obama's 2012 re-election campaign.

It's Time to Save the American Family; A Joyless Experiment Strained to the Limit.  [Scroll down]  Related to the demise of the father is the astonishing, disfiguring and wholly curious rise of perversion in the arena of personal identity.  Individual identities which could not have been fathomed a generation ago are beginning to flourish across the cultural wasteland.  Societal standards appear, to our children, as a seamless web of truths, metabolized by the young and taken into the mind as natural pillars of the culture, simply accepted as "truth."  So, for example, if polygamy is taught as a principle in a nation, then the members naturally accept and adapt, regardless of any negative impact on individual family members.  Yet, learning false standards often causes lifelong havoc, as seen in the existence of survivors of childhood sexual abuse, who often have no felt understanding of sexual mores, and therefore struggle to adapt to stable relationships.

St. Pete gets perfect LGBT score.  Officials stood on the steps of city hall Wednesday morning [11/12/2014] to herald the city's latest accolade, its recent perfect score on LGBT issues.  The grade comes from the Human Rights Campaign's nationwide Municipal Equality Index, which bases its scores on city policies pertaining to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues.  These include granting benefits to same-sex partners of city employees and barring discrimination based on gender identity citywide.

Trouble In Transtopia: Murmurs Of Sex Change Regret.  Everyone has regrets.  Some of us have big regrets. Most everyone has some place to go to get help dealing with them.  Except for, say, a guy who had sex-change surgery and now would like to have his penis back.  (The one God gave him.)  Our culture seems pretty much "to each his own" when it comes to elective bodily mutilation and the regret thereof.  And there's a lot of regret out there.

What Do Gays Really Want From The Church?  The question that is most puzzling to me is why did the gay couple choose to do business with that particular wedding chapel?  Were there not any other places that they could have gone (such as the Justice of the Peace) to have their wedding performed?  Why did the gay couple in Colorado approach the Christian Bakery?  Were there no other bakeries in their city or town?  It appears that the gay community is targeting Christians and the Christian church.  If that is indeed the case, what do they want from the church?

Fighting Back against LGBT Fascism: What You Can Do.  Since the story broke about the Human Rights Campaign's slanderous persecution of the very people their group was designed to protect — bisexuals and children of same-sex couples — I have received a great deal of support from people.  While it was nerve-wracking to have the truth about the 26 months of harassment by GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign, Scott Rosenzweig, Jeremy Hooper, and a host of other totalitarians circulate at my job, it has been healthy.  My colleagues and students had no idea about the extent of this campaign of suppression, censorship, and harassment.  Now they know the truth behind those equals-sign bumper stickers.

The Special Treatment Homosexuals Demand.  Since the [Catholic] Church has always welcomed [people with same-sex attraction], the issue is not one of accepting "homosexuals."  The activists want the Church to accept homosexuality.  Perhaps this is stating the obvious for many, but framing this properly illustrates its absurdity.  The activists want a special dispensation from Church sexual teaching — and, of course, this can be applied to all of traditionalist Christianity — for their particular behavior.  But consider where this leaves us:  Is the Church supposed to say adultery is a sin, fornication is a sin, self-gratification is a sin, viewing pornography is a sin, but homosexuality is, what?  A lifestyle choice, sort of like living on a houseboat?

Transgender federal employee wins historic discrimination case.  The U.S. Office of Special Counsel on Thursday announced a landmark determination that the Department of the Army engaged in "frequent, pervasive and humiliating," gender-identity discrimination against Tamara Lusardi, a veteran and civilian Army software specialist who transitioned from male to female.  Lusardi was working in the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center ("AMRDEC") in Redstone, Ala., when she transitioned from male to female in 2010.  During that time, the Army improperly restricted her restroom usage, referred to her with male pronouns and by her birth name and stopped giving her work, the OSC said in a report released Thursday [10/23/2014].

The Editor says...
As for the purported victim in this case, his / her troubles were brought upon himself / herself and were all completely avoidable.  By accommodating these complaints, the government will make matters worse in the long run, and by publicizing them, the Washington Post will help to normalize situations like this one.

Transgender Soldiers Meet In DC, Want Ban On Military Service Struck Down.  Transgender military personnel from a number of American allied countries met in Washington, D.C. this week to discuss what they say are the benefits of allowing open transgenders in active military service. [...] Advocates and many in the medical and scientific field believe that people are not born with a specific gender but are assigned one at birth, but that assignment may not match up to the person's "gender identity" such that a man may believe he is really a woman and vice versa.

Federal civil rights official calls Houston pastor subpoenas 'abuse of government power'.  A member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in a letter Wednesday [10/22/2014] called Houston Mayor Annise Parker's subpoena of church pastors "an abuse of government power" and urged the mayor to withdraw the court documents.  Commissioner Peter Kirsanow said that the subpoenas, even after being amended to remove a request for church sermons, still appear to be "a blatant attempt to punish these pastors for expressing their religiously based political views."

Houston's First Amendment Problem.  The recent questionably unconstitutional moves by the Houston city council to subpoena the sermons of five area ministers, as well as internal correspondence dealing with social issues, should have the American Civil Liberties Union and everyone else who believes in free speech and religious freedom up in arms.  We as Americans must guard every aspect of our Constitution and recognize when it is being threatened.  One of the great dangers in America today is extreme intolerance in the name of tolerance.  For example, in this Houston case, it is presupposed that the pastors in question may have said something that was objectionable to the homosexual community.  In order to prove that we are tolerant of the homosexual lifestyle, we as a society allow gays to be intolerant of anyone who disagrees with them in any way.

Twitter blocks petition supporting Houston pastors.  Twitter is in business to boost numbers.  Angering a huge swath of their users wouldn't be good for business.

Sermonizing Pols.  In a time of triumphant secularism, politicians treat the religious with increasing contempt.  It was only a matter of time before headlines about government demanding the sermons of pastors appeared in the United States.  Seeing themselves as superior to the religious, secularists feel entitled to bully pastors who impede their political plans. [...] The openly lesbian Houston mayor Annise Parker clearly adheres to secularist philosophy.  Outraged that pastors would dare challenge her transgender bathrooms ordinance through a referendum drive, she unleashed lawyers on them.

ACLU not happy with Houston Mayor Annise Parker.  Following a brutal battle over a city ordinance which many believed was an egregious encroachment of local government into the territory of religious freedom, Parker, Houston's first openly gay mayor, subpoenaed the full text of sermons mentioning her name or anything having to do with homosexuality.  Right leaning citizens weren't the only ones to shirk from Parker's drastic and seemingly vindictive actions.  The ACLU and other liberal leaning organizations expressed grave concern with Parker's unprecedented overreach.

Idaho pastors opposed to gay marriage sue city over law.  Two pastors in Idaho, who fear they could be penalized for refusing to perform newly legal gay marriages at their private wedding chapel, have filed a lawsuit, saying an Idaho anti-discrimination law violates their right to free speech and religious liberty.

'LGBT': The 'T' is for Tyranny.  Unlike Vegas, what happens in Houston will, most definitely, not stay in Houston — not if Democrats continue to have their way.  Houstonians elected themselves, as mayor, an extremist lesbian Democrat (but I repeat myself).  She quickly, and quite naturally, took to doing what extremist lesbian Democrats do.  Annise Parker is her name, and spreading political Ebola is her game.  That and trampling the U.S. Constitution.  As you've likely heard, Parker's office has illegally subpoenaed the sermons and privileged communications of a number of Christian pastors who vocally opposed the city's ironically branded "Equal Rights Ordinance" (aka, the Houston Bathroom Bill).

Texas Lesbian Democrat Reveals Her Party's Anti-Christian Agenda.  This has legal ramifications far beyond Houston, and is by no means limited to the issue of same-sex marriage.  What you see, if you look at this in a larger legal and cultural context, is that liberals have decided the "equal protection" clause of the Fourteenth Amendment trumps everything else in the Constitution or in Anglo-American common-law tradition, and that there is no protection whatsoever to those who oppose the "emerging awareness" doctrine proclaimed by the Supreme Court in the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas case.

'LGBT': The 'T' is for Tyranny.  Washington state, dateline 2012: Colleen is just like the girl next door.  Well, sort of.  Colleen has a penis.  So, I guess, unless the girl next door has a penis, Coleen really isn't much like her at all.  But that's beside the point.  In Washington you must, under penalty of law, pretend, along with Colleen and Democrats that, in the face of both reality and sanity, Colleen really is like the girl next door.  This includes letting Colleen, who is actually a 47-year-old dude named Clay Scott Francis, lay naked and "sprawled out in a sauna exposing himself" to girls as young as 6 years old.  This really happened in the ladies locker room at Evergreen State College.  It's only fair, you see, because, as Clay, er, "Colleen," complained, and as police agreed, this sick bastard was "discriminated against" when he was asked to leave on behalf of a terrorized 17-year-old girl.

Christians Can't Accept Houston's Intimidation Tactics Without Protest.  Perhaps seeing the totalitarianism of extremist wings of the gay rights movement has soured some people on efforts to change marriage law — or at least given people pause about the tradeoffs involved with redefining marriage or enacting broad legislation around sexual or gender identity.  We've all seen the stories about lawsuits against small business owners.  The boycotts against companies for harboring employees who haven't jumped on the bandwagon and therefore believe marriage is essentially built around sexual complementarity.  The public outrage of enthused mobs believing themselves to be on the right side of history.

Sen. Cruz criticizes Houston over sermon subpoenas.  Houston city attorneys are no longer seeking through subpoenas sermons from five pastors who publicly opposed an ordinance banning discrimination against gay and transgender residents.

Houston Demands Oversight Of Sermons.  Officials with the city of Houston, Texas, who are defending a controversial ordinance that would allow men to use women's restrooms now have demanded to see the sermons preached by several area pastors.  The recent move came in a subpoena from the city to pastors for copies of their sermons and other communications in the city's legal defense of a "non-discrimination" measure that allows "gender-confused" people to use public restrooms designated for the opposite sex.  A lawsuit challenging Houston's move alleges the city violated its own charter in its adoption of the Equal Rights Ordinance, which in May designated homosexuals and transgender persons as a protected class.

Even in Houston, Texas, You Will Be Made to Care.  Houston, TX is not thought of as a bastion of liberalism, but it has gone quite rapidly off the deep end.  Earlier this year, Houston's City Council voted on non-discrimination legislation that provides equal protection to the entire swath of the BLTGCZQDLMAO alphabet silliness.  In short, if a guy decides he's a girl and wants to go hang out in the girl's bathroom, it is a-okay in Houston, or it would be except the law will not be enforced pending a court challenge.

Big Brother in Texas: Houston Demands Pastors Turn Over Sermon Notes, Private Communications.  After decades of warnings on the right about liberal politicians threatening religious liberty, a Democratic mayor in Texas is now subpoenaing pastors to turn over their sermons.  Houston city officials are demanding that city pastors opposed to Houston's "Bathroom Bill" — "a law that allows members of the opposite sex into each other's restrooms" — turn over sermon notes and "communications with church members" to ascertain which pastors have (or haven't) "opposed or criticized the city."

Catholic Bishops in 'Seismic' Opening Toward Gays.  Catholic bishops signaled a radical shift in tone Monday about accepting gays into the church, saying they had gifts to offer and that their partnerships, while morally problematic, provided homosexual couples with "precious" support.

Human Rights Commission Says the Freedom to Practice Religion Is not a Human Right.  The Human Rights Commission of Lexington KY justifies the gay fascist bullying campaign against Christian businesses who don't wish to participate in gay weddings and other events by saying Christians should only be allowed to practice religion within their homes and churches.

Gay Activist Group Changes Name to Include 'Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer'.  The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force announced today [10/8/2014] that it is changing its name and "upping its game to deliver full LGBTQ freedom, justice and equality."  The new name, the National LGBTQ Task Force, "adds bisexual, transgender and queer to lesbian and gay in the form of LGBTQ."

Commission says Christian business owners should leave religion at home.  The Human Rights Commission in Lexington, Kentucky has a chilling message for Christian business owners who refuse service to LGBT organizations:  leave your religion at home.  "It would be safe to do so, yes," Executive Director Raymond Sexton told me.  "Or in this case you can find yourself two years down the road and you're still involved in a legal battle because you did not do so."  On Tuesday [10/7/2014], a Lexington Human Rights Commission hearing examiner issued a recommended ruling that the owner of a T-shirt company violated a local ordinance against sexual-orientation discrimination.

Judge Wants To Force A Printer To Make Pro-Gay T-Shirts.  An administrative law judge has ruled that a Kentucky printer's refusal to print gay pride t-shirts "constitutes unlawful discrimination," and, by extension, that printers cannot refuse to print materials promoting ideas they disagree with.

The Semblance of Normalcy.  It is not just that gay rights activists want "the rights everybody else has."  The strong undercurrent to that is that gay rights activists want all the semblances of normalcy.  To take the long time social stigma out of being gay requires that gay men and women are able to lead their lives exactly as everyone else.  In effect, it is to make being gay just a different version of normal.  Marriage is but one part of it.  The march toward normalcy now must get even more shrill with more people being forced to care because of American views on homosexuality as reflected in a new Pew poll.

CDC: Gay Men Represent 2 Percent Of US Population, 52 Percent Of People With HIV.  Gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) make up 2 percent of the U.S. population but are the group most definitively affected by HIV, with 63 percent of those newly infected by HIV representing this group.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's weekly "Morbidity and Mortality" report shows that among persons newly infected with HIV in 2010, 63 percent were men who have sex with other men.

Explosion Of Sexually Transmitted Infections In London's Gay Community.  Whilst gay and bisexual men represent less than 4 percent of London's population they are responsible for 84 percent of syphilis cases and 65 percent of gonorrhoea cases in the capital.  A new study from Public Health England (PHE), reported on by Pink News, suggested that around a quarter of all reported cases of sexually transmitted infections (STI) are diagnosed in gay men.

The other half attended public schools, and don't know what sin is.
Half of Americans Believe Gay Sex Is a Sin.  This has been a big year for gay rights in America.  In state after state, either judges or voters have affirmed the constitutionality of same-sex marriage, and public support for gay unions reached an all-time high.  But there's still a tension between the acknowledgement of gay rights and the acceptance of gayness itself.  A new Pew poll on religion in public life found that exactly half of respondents said they consider "homosexual behavior" sinful, a five-percentage-point increase since May 2013.  This view is most prominent among white evangelicals and black protestants; more than three-quarters of each group said they see gay sex as a sin.

Is Caring About Climate Change an Essential Part of LGBT Identity?  Since the beginning of the contemporary LGBT movement [...] activists have roughly divided into two camps.  The first is basically liberal and seeks to win incremental victories, gain equal rights, and more or less assimilate into the mainstream of American society. [...] The second group is more radical.  It doesn't want to assimilate into the mainstream, it wants to transform it.

Federal Appeals Court Upholds New Jersey's Ban On Gay Conversion Therapy For Minors.  A federal appeals court ruled Thursday [9/11/2014] to uphold New Jersey's law prohibiting medical professionals in the state from practicing gay conversion therapy, or efforts to turn gay people straight, on people under the age of 18.  The 3rd Circuit Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a November 2013 ruling that found the state's law, called A3371, which prohibits therapists from performing treatment attempting to change sexual orientation or gender identity on minors, as constitutional.

South Carolina teen sues DMV over license photo.  The family of a South Carolina teenager who was ordered to remove his makeup before taking a driver's license photo this year has filed a federal lawsuit against the state Department of Motor Vehicles, according to court records.  Chase Culpepper, a 16-year-old who identifies as male but wears makeup and women's clothing on a regular basis, was ordered to remove his makeup by DMV officials when he tried to obtain his driver's license in March.

Feds Still Studying Why Lesbians Are Obese.  The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million.  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014.  The project seeks to determine why "nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese," and why gay males are not.  In just two years the project's budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

Gay illegal immigrants demand deportation protection.  Gay immigrants are mounting a campaign to demand that they be included in any unilateral moves President Obama makes this year to halt deportations, arguing that they face unusual circumstances that otherwise might leave them on the outside.  The demands pose a tricky test for Mr. Obama, who has made major inroads with gay rights groups during his time in the White House, but who will have to draw lines somewhere as he seeks to craft a more lenient deportation policy without canceling deportations altogether.

D.C.'s Congressional Cemetery to host LGBT veterans memorial in 'gay corner'.  The nation's first-ever memorial to gay military veterans will be placed in the "gay corner" of the historic Congressional Cemetery on Capitol Hill, home to the gravesites of senators, congressmen, Supreme Court justices and vice presidents.  In announcing the new memorial, cemetery President Paul K. Williams said the stone structure will be put close to "the 'gay corner,' thought to be the only LGBT cemetery section in the world."

Gay Leaders Upset by Low CDC Population Numbers: 'Political Influence Matters'.  Gay leaders are expressing alarm at the just-released numbers from the Center for Disease Control that place the percentage of Americans identifying as homosexual at only 1.6% of the adult population.  That would mean the total number of gays in American is roughly 3.8 million, roughly 1.5 million less than the total number of American Methodists.

Health survey gives government its first large-scale data on gay, bisexual population.  Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday [7/15/2014] in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans' sexual orientation.  The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government's premier tool for annually assessing Americans' health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual.

Lesbian, gay, and bisexual Americans more likely to smoke and drink excessively.  Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people may be more likely to smoke and drink excessively, a major new study has found.  The new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also found that 1.6% of Americans identified as gay or lesbian, and 0.7% identified as bisexual.

CDC: Gay Population 2.3%; Thanks to Media, Americans Think Number is 13 Times Higher.  Everyone knows there are gays and lesbians in everybody's family.  And no office would be complete without a sassy gay character.  And just about every other kid in high school is wresting with his sexuality.  I know.  I watch TV.  Except it isn't true, and the Centers for Disease Control just proved it.  A new comprehensive study by the CDC with over 33,000 participants has confirmed earlier estimates; less than 3 percent of the U.S. population self-identifies as gay, lesbian or bisexual.  Earlier, much smaller-scale surveys have put that number at 4 percent.

Housing Dispute Puts Quaker University at Front of Fight Over Transgender Issues.  A growing number of openly transgender students have forced schools around the country to address questions so basic that they were rarely asked just a few years ago, much less answered:  What defines a person's gender, and who gets to decide?  A small Christian college here, George Fox University, has become the latest front in this fight, refusing to recognize as male a student who was born anatomically female.

JAMA opinion piece calls for ending lifetime ban on blood donation by gay men.  Gay marriage laws and court rulings against sexual-orientation discrimination are all signs that it's time for the federal government to change its blood-donor policy for gay and bisexual men, authors said in a commentary released Saturday [7/19/2014].  The lifetime ban for blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) "may be perpetuating outdated homophobic perceptions," wrote Dr. Eli Y. Adashi of Brown University and scholars I. Glenn Cohen and Jeremy Feigenbaum, both of Harvard Law School, in the July 23/30 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Truth Telling and the Abuse of Language.  It was only a couple of years ago that the world sported only two genders of human beings — male and female.  Now Facebook allows folks to self-identify into 50 possibilities, only two of which are truly genders.  I find this particularly perplexing.  Do we have gender designations for gays, lesbians, bisexuals, the transgendered who dress in drag but haven't had surgery, the transgendered who have had surgery but it didn't go well?  Do we differentiate between the men who have become women and the women who have become men?  The 97% of us who are not confused about all of this are now called cisgendered instead of straight.  Governor Brown in California has ruled against the use of the terms husband and wife in public documents.  What will go next, mother and father?

Massachusetts city ends contract with Christian college over gay rights.  Salem, Massachusetts, put an end to a long-time contract with the Christian-based Gordon College after administrators refused to cave to the gay-rights movement and remove a ban on "homosexual behavior" among students and staff.  The contract between the two entities was a "reciprocal arrangement where we provided management of the facility in exchange for using it for educational programs connected to Gordon, and as well as 'curation' experiences for history majors at Gordon," Rick Sweeney, the vice president of marketing and communications at the college, told the Christian Post.  The contract, in place since 2008, was actually due to wrap in August, but Salem officials decided to use the opt-out clause and exit the agreement early, The Blaze reported.

British filmmakers ordered to provide gay, racial diversity on screen.  British filmmakers must now meet new targets for ethnic minority, gay and female characters on- and off-screen if they wish to continue receiving funding from Britain's largest public film fund.  The British Film Institute has revealed its "Three Ticks" scheme, which will be implemented in September to ensure diversity in films and behind the scenes, The Telegraph reported.  Films must "tick" at least two of three criteria: on-screen diversity; off-screen diversity and "creating opportunities and social mobility," the paper reported.

Taking the New Sexual Fascism Seriously.  There is a mass movement aimed at stifling the autonomy of natural relationships — friendships, familial love, romantic love, human reverence for the divine — and subverting such relationships to the punitive power of an intrusive state.  It is as sweeping and menacing as past isms, including fascism, to which it reveals a number of striking resemblances.  It is difficult to comprehend, partly because it operates so often with emotional subterfuge, and partly because it is unprecedented.  It is less nationalistic than past fascisms, though more invasive and consuming because it polices interpersonal relationships and interior thoughts in a way that earlier police states did not.  I have come to realize, though, that it is violent, even though we tend not to think of the movement as violent because many still stereotype gays as delicate, and the violence is usually carried out through the seemingly legitimate auspices of the state.

Burger King in San Francisco releases pro-gay 'Proud Whopper'.  The Proud Whopper is no different in taste, texture or ingredient than the regular Whopper — the message the chain is hoping to convey.  The Proud Whopper wrapper reads, once opened, "We are all the same inside."

Second Employee Alleges Chase Bank Surveyed Staff's LGBT Loyalty.  A second source has confirmed that JP Morgan Chase has asked each of its employees whether they are "an ally of the LGBT community," which employees have taken as a veiled threat.  Each year JP Morgan Chase sends its employees a survey asking questions related to management and other non-controversial issues.  A longtime Chase employee told Professor Robert George of Princeton that the survey this year included the following questions for the first time: [...]

Supreme Court Rejects Challenge To California Ban On Gay Conversion Therapy.  The Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to California's law that bars mental counseling aimed at turning gay minors straight.

Letting the IRS Get Away with It.  Someone at the IRS leaked the donor lists to a man called Matthew Meisel, a gay activist in Boston.  Meisel in turn passed it on to the gay group Human Rights Campaign (whose president was a national co-chair of the Obama re-election campaign), and HRC in turn published the list of donors, which was subsequently re-published by The Huffington Post.  There's no secret about why they'd do such a thing.  As we know, if you disagree with progressive orthodoxy, you have no right to host a cable-TV home-decor show or give a commencement address at an American university or be a beauty-queen contestant.  But that's not enough for these groups.  If you're not a public figure, if you're just a Californian who puts up a yard sign or a bumper sticker on Proposition Eight, your car will be keyed and your house defaced.

Thousands turn out for Trans March in S.F..  Thousands of people descended on Dolores Park on Friday afternoon [6/27/2014] for the nation's biggest transgender pride event, the 11th annual Trans March, before moving the celebration to the site of the Compton's Cafeteria Riot at Turk and Taylor streets in San Francisco.  Once at the site of the one of the most important transgender riots in U.S. history, city officials unveiled a street sign honoring the late Vicki Marlane, one of San Francisco's legendary performers.  The Board of Supervisors in April approved a resolution to recognize the pioneer, who died of an AIDS-related illness in 2011.

Federal Appeals Court Strikes Down Utah's Same-Sex Marriage Ban.  For the first time, a federal appeals court has struck down a state's ban on same-sex marriage.  A three-judge panel of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver voted 2-1 that Utah's ban is unconstitutional.  "We hold that the Fourteenth Amendment protects the fundamental right to marry, establish a family, raise children, and enjoy the full protection of a state's marital laws.  A state may not deny the issuance of a marriage license to two persons, or refuse to recognize their marriage, based solely upon the sex of the persons in the marriage union," the court said.

How The Trans-Agenda Seeks To Redefine Everyone.  In November, the U.S. Senate voted in favor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).  The law is based on the assumption that one's perceived "gender identity" does not always "match" your sex "assigned" or "designated" at birth.  So, the thinking goes, the law should allow a more ambiguous array of gender identities:  male, female, both, neither, or something else entirely.  It's not an overstatement to say that ENDA is a huge step, mostly under the radar, to codify a new definition of humanity.

Sex Change Regrets.  While some might find the story laughable, I personally find it tragic:  Don Ennis, an experienced TV news producer was fired from his job, allegedly for performance-related issues, after reappearing as Dawn Stacey Ennis, marking his third gender change since last year. [...] It would appear that Ennis is quite troubled and in need of serious help, but even to suggest such a thing is to be branded transphobic and hateful.

Former Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender Surgery Isn't the Solution.  A former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital has written an explosive editorial at the Wall Street Journal saying, "Policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention."  Dr. Paul McHugh, the former chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins, challenges the notion that sex-reassignment surgery is good for transgendered persons and provides statistics to back up his assertions.

The 'Transgender Tipping Point' to Censorship.  Now that our cultural elites feel they have sufficiently educated the public on the virtues of gays and lesbians, it's time to drill down to the next level.  Here comes transgenderism.  Time magazine placed "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox (born Charles Cox) on the cover as the face of "The Transgender Tipping Point:  America's Next Civil Rights Frontier."  Cox wrote on Facebook that the Time cover was a wonderful present on her birthday, and "I realize this is way bigger than me and about a tipping point in our nation's history where it is no longer acceptable for trans lives to be stigmatized, ridiculed, criminalized and disregarded."

Gay-rights groups endorse Charlie Crist for governor.  The largest gay-rights groups in Florida and the nation endorsed Democrat Charlie Crist on Thursday, a turnaround for the former Republican governor who once helped enshrine a same-sex marriage ban in the state's Constitution.

Here's a clue about the origins of homosexuality:
Satanic Temple: Gay Marriage is 'a Sacrament'.  The Satanic Temple, which gained international notoriety in May when it tried to hold a Black Mass reenactment at Harvard University, said one of the issues it feels strongly about is "gay rights" and explained that homosexual marriage is "a sacrament," just like heterosexual marriage.  The Satanic Temple (TST) spokesman, Lucien Greaves, who reportedly is a graduate of Harvard University, explained why TST focuses on gay rights in a recent interview with the Detroit Metro Times and expanded on those views in an email to CNSNews.com.

Book: Is Homosexual Acceptance Making America's Institutions Weaker?  In his new book, Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior is Changing Everything, Robert R. Reilly argues that the American public is being forced to think that homosexuality is morally acceptable.  Reilly contends that the gay movement transformed from an initial plea for tolerance into a movement that forcefully demands universal acceptance by all societal institutions.  Reilly told Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon in an interview on Breitbart News Sunday [6/8/2014] [...] that, in government today, the gay agenda is so pervasive that no one can "participate at the cabinet level without participating in a gay pride proclamation or participate in a gay pride parade."

Gay, transgender Americans to get markers in parks.  The announcement Friday that the National Park Service will begin installing markers at places of importance to the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans is a step toward including them in the national narrative — and components of education, supporters said.

Houston Mayor Forces All to Open Girls Rooms to Men.  Houston's bathrooms, showers, and dressing facilities will now be open to all, regardless of gender, gender identity, gender expression, or other predilection of gender behavior.  By an 11-6 vote of the Houston City Council, Mayor Annise Parker achieved this as the crowning jewel of her tenure as mayor.  Mayor Parker, Houston's first openly gay mayor, said passing this ordinance was not the most important thing she has done in office, according to an article in the Fairfield Citizen, but it is the "most personally meaningful thing I will ever do as mayor."

Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman: Facts are not subject to our feelings.  The world is abuzz with news that actor Laverne Cox has become the first transgender person to appear on the cover of Time magazine.  If I understand the current state of the ever-shifting ethic and rhetoric of transgenderism, that is not quite true:  Bradley Manning, whom we are expected now to call Chelsea, beat Cox to the punch by some time.  Manning's announcement of his intention to begin living his life as a woman and to undergo so-called sex-reassignment surgery came after Time's story, but, given that we are expected to defer to all subjective experience in the matter of gender identity, it could not possibly be the case that Manning is a transgendered person today but was not at the time of the Time cover simply because Time was unaware of the fact, unless the issuance of a press release is now a critical step in the evolutionary process.

Laverne Cox heralds 'transgender tipping point' on cover of Time.  Cox has received several awards for her work as the first transgender black woman to have a leading role on a mainstream US television show.  Despite these groundbreaking achievements, Time's annual list of the 100 most influential people failed to include Cox when it was unveiled in April.

Harvey Milk stamp's debut celebrated in S.F., D.C..  U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin looked out at the crowd of politicians, federal officials and gay activists who had been invited to the White House on what would have been Harvey Milk's 84th birthday.  The occasion was the U.S. Postal Service's first day of issue Thursday [5/22/2014] for a stamp honoring the slain San Francisco supervisor and gay rights leader.  But as the venue would suggest, this was about a lot more than a stamp.

D.C. adoption law draws lesbians from Va., other states to give birth here.  Twin daughters were born last week to Desiree Bryan and her wife, Stephanie, but the path they've chosen to motherhood is not yet complete.  The lesbian couple live in Midlothian, Va., near Richmond.  The commonwealth does not recognize either their 2010 marriage in the District or Stephanie's parentage of the girls, who grew from her fertilized eggs implanted in and carried by Desiree.  So the Bryans delivered their girls in the District.  It was a two-hour drive from home, friends and family, but it's a place that offers the surest way for Lily Mae and Mia Lynn to have two mothers in the eyes of the law.

'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson likens homosexuals to thieves, drunks in videotaped sermon.  Phil Robertson included remarks in a sermon in his church West Monroe, Louisiana that harken back to the "Duck Dynasty" star's past anti-gay remarks.  Robertson included homosexuals with other groups, including thieves, drunks and adulterers, as hell-bound sinners in a sermon he gave on Easter that was recorded and put up on the church's website.  "Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolators, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God," Robertson said, paraphrasing a verse from Corinthians in the Bible.  Robertson's rep tells FOX411 that "he was in a church quoting the Bible," but would offer no further comment.

Gay-Marriage Decisions Read Like GLAAD Press Releases Now.  A district judge in Pennsylvania ruled yesterday that the state is obligated to recognize same-sex marriages.  Given the sensitivity of the issue, the judge must have taken extra caution to present a sober, impartial analysis of the relevant case law, right?  Of course not.  His decision reads like a press release from a gay-rights organization, replete with emotional appeals, loaded terminology, and rhetorical flourishes.  While reading the first paragraph of the decision, keep in mind that the author is supposed to be a neutral arbiter of the law: [...]

Rainbow Flag Flies Over U.S. Embassy In Madrid.  The Obama administration seems to have forgotten the International Day of the Family last week that was celebrated at the UN and around the world May 15.  Yet the administration was very enthusiastic about the May 17th celebration of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, issuing proclamations by the Secretary of Defense and a statement by the President.  Moreover, at least one ambassador flew the rainbow flag over his embassy.

LGBT Tyranny Can Take Your First Amendment Rights Away.  We are too apathetic.  We allow a small minority of people to take our freedoms away because we care more about being politically correct than we do about protecting our Bill of Rights.  We are allowing a bank to discriminate against Christians.  While I support the rights of LGBTs, I don't believe Americans can be comfortable with losing their First Amendment rights because not everyone agrees with everything LGBTs do.  We need to start fighting back. [...] LGBTs now have the power to get people fired and ruin their businesses and careers.  Americans should be outraged.

Cultural double standard: Michael Sam, Tim Tebow and free speech.  Once, Social Security was the "third rail" of politics.  Touch it and face political death.  Now it is homosexuality.  Criticize anything gay people do and you risk ostracism, fines, suspension or loss of your livelihood.

Gaslighting America Out of Existence.  [An] excellent example of gaslighting is the top-down normalization of homosexuality, which has been almost universally regarded as a repugnant aberration throughout human history.  Now we are told it is normal, and that it is not perverts who are sick, but you for thinking there is something wrong with perversion.  If you don't enjoy watching football players engage in passionate kisses with their homosexual boyfriends on television, you are a defective person.

Kerry Commemorates 'International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia'.  Secretary of State John Kerry has put out a statement "Commemorating International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia," which is today [5/16/2014].  "Today of all days, we are reminded that the cause of justice can and must triumph over hatred and prejudice.  This is a day of action for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities and their allies all over the world.  It is time to reaffirm our commitment to the equality and dignity of all persons, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity," said Kerry in a statement.

CDC: Syphilis Resurgence Among Gay Men 'Major Public Health Concern'.  The sometimes-deadly disease syphilis is exploding in the United States, with most of the increase since 1995 among men who have sex with men (MSM), according to a new report from the Atlanta-based Center for Disease Control (CDC).  As recently as 2000, researchers believed the total elimination of syphilis was within reach.  The recent dramatic increases in infections, coupled with the observation that syphilis closely tracks with other diseases like AIDS, have the medical and scientific community deeply concerned.

Michael Sam the Sham.  If you Google "Michael Sam just wants to play football," some 67 million results pop up.  He also flatly stated that he "wanted to stop talking about his sexual orientation" and "let (his) work on the field speak for itself" in a radio interview, among other places.  Yeah, right.  Nothing says that quite like licking icing off the mouth of another dude on national TV.  And I'm sure the new Oprah TV series will have nothing to do with sexual orientation either.  In other words, we now know what Michael Sam is a sham.

Liberals' Dark Ages.  The touchstone of liberalism is tolerance of differing ideas.  Yet this mob exists to enforce conformity of thought and to delegitimize any dissent from its sanctioned worldview.  Intolerance is its calling card.  Each week seems to bring another incident.  Last week it was David and Jason Benham, whose pending HGTV show was canceled after the mob unearthed old remarks the brothers made about their Christian beliefs on homosexuality.  People can't have a house-flipping show unless they believe and say the "right" things in their life off the set?

Christian Brotherhood an Impeachable Offense; Gay Incest Celebrated.  Just in the last week, in the latest blitz of gay über alles, at the provocation of groups like GLAAD and Right Wing Watch, a newspaperman was sacked in Iowa and an entire show on HGTV was canceled because of editors and two handsome blond brothers adhering to the millennia-old strictures about chastity.  If you are a pair of gorgeous brothers dedicating your life to building homes for the poor, but you criticize homosexuality, you must be stripped of your life's work and publicly humiliated.  But if you are a pair of gorgeous brothers who decide to have unprotected anal sex with each other in front of the camera, the gay community will shower you with praise.

Claim: Warriors Coach Fired for Christian Views on Homosexuality.  Was Golden State Warriors head coach Mark Jackson fired for his Christian views on gay marriage?  That's what Ann Killion is asking at sfgate.com, noting that Jackson's lukewarm reaction to the coming-out of Jason Collins, last year was something of a mismatch for the Bay Area, which is the global capital of gay politics and culture.

Delaware Deputy Attorney General charged with Grindr rape of underage boy.  A Delaware Deputy Attorney General has been arrested for sexually assaulting an underage boy he met on Grindr.  Daniel Simmons, 34, of Wilmington, met the 16-year-old boy on the popular gay and bisexual dating app earlier this year, authorities said.  He has been charged with four counts of fourth-degree rape for his encounters with the teen, according to the Delaware News Journal.

State lawmaker stands by his condemnation of gay sex.  A state lawmaker from Sioux Falls is being mocked, criticized and praised for an Internet posting in which he accused doctors of covering up the negative health risks associated with anal sex.  "Certainly there are board-certified doctors in our state who will attest to what seems self-evident to so many:  gay sex is not good for the body or mind," Republican Rep. Steve Hickey wrote in an April 28 post on his Facebook page.  Hickey, who also is a pastor at Church of the Gate in Sioux Falls, said he would question the judgment of any doctor who disagrees with his assessment, and he asked whether the medical community isn't speaking out because they "feel silenced and intimidated."

Gay 'conversion therapy bans stall across the nation.  A movement to ban the controversial practice of "conversion therapy" that counsels gay children and teens on how to become straight is meeting with unexpected problems after the easy passage of bills in California and New Jersey.  State lawmakers in New York are planning a public hearing on a bill to ban conversion therapy in the state this month, but similar measures have floundered in as many as nine other state legislatures.  Supporters insist they still have political momentum to pass more bans on sexual orientation change efforts for minors, with one top campaigner saying the delays at the state level are only a temporary setback.

In my opinion, this guy lives in more than one prison.
Judge Orders Resumption of Hormone Treatment for Ohio Transgendered Inmate.  A federal judge in Ohio has ordered the reinstatement of a transgendered inmate's hormone therapy so that he can maintain his status as a female.  Inmate Whitney Lee, 36, housed at the Mansfield Correctional Institution, had been receiving hormone therapy since 1999, but the state of Ohio stopped the therapy in 2012.

Possible Petition Drive To Get Transgender Rights Bill On Ballot.  The bill approved by lawmakers this year would add gender identity to race, sex, religion and sexual orientation to receive protection under the state's anti-discrimination laws in employment, credit, housing and public accommodations.  Republicans who opposed the bill in this year's legislative debate dubbed it the "bathroom bill."  They argued that men would use the protections of the legislation to go into women's bathrooms and attack women and girls.

Meningitis Outbreak in L.A.'s Gay Community, Three Dead.  In what the Los Angeles Times is referring to as a meningitis outbreak in L.A.'s gay community, since January 1 there have been eight occurrences of invasive meningococcal disease in L.A. County.  Four of those cases have been of gay men, and three of those four have died, officials reported Thursday [4/3/2014].  North Hollywood and West Hollywood were identified in the Times report as the areas where the sickened men socialized.

India's Supreme Court creates official third sex for eunuchs and transgenders.  India's Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination.  The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society.

The Editor says...
People who undergo a sex change have no room to complain about discrimination, because they have brought their freakishly unnatural conditions upon themselves.  There was a time in this country, not too long ago, when surgery of this kind was unthinkable, and anyone who shopped for a doctor to perform such an operation was likely to be locked up in the psych ward.

Maryland's bathroom bill benefits few transgenders, puts all girls at risk from pedophiles.  Maryland moms and dads will now have to be more vigilant when their children use public bathrooms.  It will soon be legal for a man who simply says he identifies as a woman to use the ladies' room.  This serious risk for sexual assaults of women and little girls is all in the name of political correctness.  And this is just the latest in a string of successes by the transgender lobby.  On Friday, the Maryland House passed legislation that prohibits discrimination based on "gender identity" in employment, housing, credit and public accommodations — which, most disturbingly, includes restrooms.

Official Policy: Male Federal Workers Can Use Women's Restrooms, Locker Rooms.  When an expectant mother visits her doctor for an ultrasound, the doctor invariably asks:  Do you want to know the sex of your child?  The Obama administration, however, does not believe an unborn child has a sex — even when a doctor sees indisputable physical evidence.  Obama's Office of Personnel Management has published what it calls "Guidance Regarding the Employment of Transgender Individuals in the Workplace."  This document speaks of "sex" as something a person has "assigned" to them only after they make it through the birth canal.

Neither man nor woman: Norrie wins gender appeal.  In a historic decision with far-reaching implications for institutions and individuals across the country, the court on Wednesday formally upheld the right of transgender person Norrie to be registered as neither a man nor a woman with the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.  The decision is recognition by the highest court in the land that "sex" is not binary — it is not only "male" or "female" — and that this should be recognised by the law and in basic legal documents.

Media Matters inexplicably attacks Fox News for using the term 'homosexual'.  Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday [3/24/2014] for using the term "homosexual" in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a "pejorative connotation."  The online "media watchdog" contends that calling gay people "homosexual" is "a practice that's quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term's often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality."  Fox News, they chide, "has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people."

I wonder how they feel about words like sodomite, perversion, and deviant.  Masking the appropriate descriptors — or removing them from the PC dictionary — does not change the facts.

Joe Biden: 'Close to Barbaric' That Businesses Can Fire Gay Employees.  [Scroll down]  He said it was time for Congress to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act — known as ENDA — which would bar employers with 15 or more workers from using a person's sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for making employment decisions, including hiring, firing, compensation or promotion.

5 Big Wins for Militant Gay Pressure Groups.  This has become the raison d'etre of many in the gay rights movement:  destroying the businesses of those who refuse to abide by their standards of conduct, all in the name of tolerance.  And they've been tremendously successful at it.  Here are the top five recent instances of successful gay intimidation of business: [...]

A convoluted insanity defense:
Transgender Woman Claims Former Male Self a Murderer.  Authorities in Washington State believe that a series of murders of prostitutes in 1990 were committed by Washington resident Douglas Perry.  Now Perry has been captured and charged with the murders, but Douglas has become "Donna," a transgender woman who claims that she is not responsible for the murders because Douglas no longer exists.

Enough with the Gay Mania.  It's one thing to be tolerant of what once were known as "alternative lifestyles."  It's another thing to be asked to celebrate them, as the exuberant mythologizers of Michael Sam and Johnny Weir ask us to do.  And it is way beyond the pale to hold forth on any sort of sex life — perhaps apart from self-restraint — as if it's a form of heroism.  Yet the culture of the professional Left, enthusiastically aided by the establishment media, is going bonkers in pushing active homosexuality (or any one of several exotic variants thereof) as an absolute virtue.

Obama calls homosexuality one of our 'fundamental freedoms' in statement slamming Ugandan bill.  President Barack Obama has elevated the right to have sex with a member of the same sex to the level of universal "fundamental freedoms" in a new presidential statement criticizing Uganda.  But critics say his promotion of homosexuality in a continent that overwhelmingly opposes that behavior amounts to a form of liberal "cultural imperialism."

The Gay Attack on American Values.  In America, gays — male and female homosexuals — represent about 3% of the population.  That leaves 97% in a majority and that majority is now under a full assault on their traditional values concerning marriage — intended only for the opposite sexes — and in some cases on their religious faith that deems homosexuality a sin.  In recent years we have seen gays achieve a legal status for same-sex marriage, thus undermining centuries of tradition that understands marriage to be for the purpose of procreation and as the keystone of society.

Why Gays Have So Much Influence on Our Culture.  We do not talk with our neighbors or relatives about their sexual activity, be they homosexual or heterosexual.  It is not polite and we have been programmed to ignore our anxiety about their welfare.  What is abominable is that our youth are being seduced by this campaign and remain totally ignorant of any downside to their choices confusing love and lust.

CDC releases updated STD data; syphilis, gonorrhea cases are up, chlamydia numbers are stable.  Wyoming had the lowest rate, at 7.7 per 100,000 people.  The District of Columbia was the highest at 388.7 per 100,000.  Ohio's rate was 142.9 per 100,000.  The number of cases reported in Ohio in 2012 was 16,493, down slightly from 2011.  More than 15,000 primary and secondary syphilis cases were reported in 2012, a rate of 5 per 100,000 people.  The rate increase was solely among men, especially gay and bisexual men who represent an estimated 75 percent of cases.

Gonorrhea, Syphilis Regain Traction in U.S., CDC Reports.  While all three diseases [gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia] are curable with antibiotics, many people don't get tested as recommended, said Gail Bolan, the director of the CDC's STD prevention division.  That's especially the case for syphilis, where the rise is entirely attributable to men, particularly those who are gay or bisexual.

Rose Parade or "Gay Pride" Parade?  You no longer need to live in California to get a taste of our progressive values.  This week, it's coming to a TV set near you.  After more than 100 years of family-oriented entertainment on New Year's Day, the Tournament of Roses Parade has veered off course.  Organizers are allowing progressives to parade their political agendas around and morph a historic parade into an event more closely resembling a gay pride parade than the Rose Parade we have come to know.

Rose Parade Gay 'Marriage' Float Degrades Family Event, Say Conservative Activists.  Two homosexual men will be married on a float in the 2014 Rose Parade on Wednesday, Jan. 1, in what critics are saying transforms the family-friendly event into a vehicle for promoting the gay rights activists' political agenda.  Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair were chosen by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation by lottery to be married atop a float made to resemble a wedding cake.

Fischer: Why is Magic Johnson healthy as a horse!  While the average heterosexual has somewhere between seven to 14 sexual partners in a lifetime, it is not uncommon for homosexuals to have hundreds, even thousands, of sexual partners.  Anonymous sex in public places like bathhouses, public parks and public restrooms is an all-too frequent occurrence in the gay community, and homosexuals will frequently attempt to have multiple sexual encounters in a single night, often with total strangers.  The only way this is possible is through taking stimulants that heighten sexual pleasure and make multiple sexual experiences possible.

The Straight Dope on Homosexuality.  How promiscuous are homosexuals?  Some people argue that except for about 15% who are wildly promiscuous, homosexuals are no different from heteros.  The anti-sodomites like to quote a 1997 study from the Journal of Sex Research that polled 2,583 older homosexuals and found that the most common number of lifetime partners fell somewhere between 101 and 500, and that 10% to 16% reported having more than 1,000.  A 2009 Australian "Gay Census" that was not restricted to age found that a quarter of homosexuals reported over 100 partners and 10% had so many they had "no idea."  The older the men were, the more likely they were to be in the over 100 or "no idea" categories.

Gay advocacy group: Obamacare ad makes us look like 'sex-crazed lechers'.  The latest sexually charged ad campaign pushing Obamacare has now offended some members of its target audience, namely gay men.  A video advertisement released shortly before Christmas by Out2Enroll, which features four young buff men wearing tight underwear and not much else, drew an angry blast from the gay conservative organization Log Cabin Republicans.

Reality Bites Gays.  Image control has been crucial to gay activists.  In 1980 Hollywood produced, Cruising, a big budget film that showed the seamier side of gay life. [...] Since then, any filmmaker who does not conform his gay characters to a positive and largely asexual template is likely to be criticized.  The arrival of the AIDS pandemic helped reinforce this pressure by offering up a new version of a time honored movie stereotype — the terminally ill secular saint.  Today it is allowable to use a gay drama queen as a comedic foil, but only if he is also shown to have a heart of gold.  Otherwise gay characters have to be positive.  In recent years such gay characters have been everywhere on TV and in movies.

Do You Believe in Magic!  Could there have been any doubt as to how the media would react when, on November 9, [1991,] Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers announced he was HIV-positive? [...] With Magic Johnson, the media and the AIDS activists scored a long-awaited coup.  CNN jumped on the Johnson story to proclaim that now "anyone can get AIDS."  How curious to be told that, if a man who apparently had thousands of sex partners can get AIDS, we are all at risk.

Two gay males to get married on 2014 Rose Parade float.  The 2014 Rose Parade will feature two gay males Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair getting married on one of the floats.  AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is the sponsor of this gay marriage Rose Parade float. [...] You can't even get away from progressive liberal indoctrination at a family event like the Rose Parade anymore.

Get a clue.  It's not "a family event" any more.

Moral Intelligence and Public School Bullying.  On December 4, 2013 Randi Weingarten, president of the 1.5-million member American Federation of Teachers (AFT), spoke on C-Span about bullying, particularly of gay students.  Ms. Weingarten said, with surprise in her voice, that she doesn't understand why gay students are still bullied in public schools, because in 2013, "It's cool to be gay."  She also said she is gay, and now speaks about it openly. [...] As Ms. Weingarten talked about the love that not only dares speak its name but never shuts its yap, I imagined how it would sound if a heterosexual male schoolteacher said, "The way I do sex is cool."

Compare and Contrast.  What this comes down to is that there is a group who mocks God, Jesus and the Bible.  They say it's fiction.  They say they couldn't care less about what Christians say about sin.  Sin is an arbitrary construct decided upon by a certain group of men.  The gays are lying.  They care very much what Christians think and say.  They are not fighting for civil rights.  They are fighting to control thought.  They have a need to legislate how you feel.  They need to eradicate any whisper that what they do is unnatural and a sin, while claiming they don't believe in such things.

Messiah Obama Turns 2014 Winter Olympics into Sexuality Games.  Anyone who thought the Olympics was about sports competition among nations apparently was wrong, at least according to President Barack Obama.  Just like he has tried to reinvent America off her throne of greatness, Obama uses the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia to remake the games into a forum on gay rights.

Out2Enroll video has men in holiday undies promoting subsidized healthcare.  The Obama administration has teamed up with a campaign called #Out2Enroll, the brainchild of the Sellers Dorsey Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that focuses on "improving the health of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community," according to their website.

The Age of Intolerance.  [Scroll down]  First, Bob Hope, touring the world in the year or so after the passage of the 1975 Consenting Adult Sex Bill:  "I've just flown in from California, where they've made homosexuality legal.  I thought I'd get out before they make it compulsory."  For Hope, this was an oddly profound gag, discerning even at the dawn of the Age of Tolerance that there was something inherently coercive about the enterprise.  Soon it would be insufficient merely to be "tolerant" — warily accepting, blithely indifferent, mildly amused, tepidly supportive, according to taste.  The forces of "tolerance" would become intolerant of anything less than full-blown celebratory approval.

The Left's militant, proactive intolerance.  I must admit I've never watched "Duck Dynasty," but this brouhaha over A&E's suspension of the show's star, Phil Robertson, for his remarks on homosexual behavior in an interview with GQ has little to do with "gay" issues and everything to do with thought and speech control — and the left's intolerance.

GLAAD: Lethal Enforcers of the Left's Tolerance Mob.  "Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson is not alone.  He's the latest in a long, long lineup of politically incorrect targets of the left's sensitivity mob.  Founded in 1985, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) gangstas won't stop until both the cultural and legal enforcement of their agenda are the norm.

Polygamy: It's Coming.  In Lawrence v. Texas, the U.S. Supreme Court, reversing its own then-recent holding in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruled that laws against homosexual sodomy are unconstitutional — even though the Constitution says nothing about sex, let alone sodomy — on the ground that the right of privacy (also never mentioned in the Constitution) protects all consensual, private sexual contact between adults.  Lawrence immediately was seen as a milestone in the campaign for gay marriage.  Some conservatives noted that the Court's rationale would protect polygamy, too, but they were denounced as killjoys.  Lawyers noticed, however.  Soon after Lawrence, several lawsuits were commenced in federal courts asserting a constitutional right to polygamy.

Lesbian boss 'fired me for being straight'.  A married, heterosexual gym teacher at a tony Upper West Side private school was fired because his lesbian supervisor disapproved of his "traditional family status," the canned teacher claims in a new Manhattan lawsuit.  Gregory Kenney, 50, taught gym at the Trinity School on W. 91st St. for 16 years before he was let go in June 2012.

Penalizing Those Who Hold Biblical Views of Marriage.  In a series of instances we have seen the gatekeepers of civil society attack those who hold Biblical views about marriage and sexuality — Chick-fil-A, Barilla Pasta, Craig James who was fired from ESPN, and now Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty.  It is even worse, of course, when it is the government that penalizes those who hold Biblical views.  That should be anathema in America.  While A&E exercised its rights, in a growing number of incidents, government has not respected the free-contract and free-speech rights of Americans.

A&E declares war on 'Duck Dynasty's' Christian values.  Duck Dynasty has been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.  By now you probably know that A&E indefinitely suspended Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family, for following the teachings of the Holy Bible.

Homosexuals Get Duck Dy-Nasty.  "Tolerance," as it has been marketed, was always a con. [...] For one thing, tolerance always implies a negative, real or perceived; you wouldn't have to tolerate a beautiful car or a delectable meal — you relish those things.  But you might have to tolerate a cold or bad weather.  Thus, tolerance is only noble in two situations:  One is when dealing with something objectively negative that cannot be eliminated, such as irremediable pain.  The other is when confronted with something you don't happen to like and could avoid, but that is objectively good or neutral; an example would be tolerating a food you detest in order to avoid offending your hosts.

Christianity on trial in Duck Dynasty controversy.  Will cooler heads prevail in the gay community, realizing that Christians ought to be allowed to have their two millennia-old beliefs respected in the public square?  That would be the optimal outcome, but I don't really predict it will happen, as things now stand.

The abhorrence of homosexuality is much older than "two millennia."  Homosexuality has been abnormal since the creation of the earth.  (Genesis 5:2)

What Christmas Means for Traditional Family Advocates.  The LGBT lobby has been ruthless about intruding into all our relationships both personal and professional to indoctrinate people in its sexual ideology.  It doesn't matter that this ideology of biological determinism and sexual abandon destroys gays themselves, as well as the people around them who feel the fallout from their depression, sexually transmitted diseases, eating disorders, anxiety, exploitation, sexual assault, domestic violence, and suicide — all the trademarks of a gay world that has been decaying from within while its self-appointed lobbyist overseers bicker with the outside world about same-sex marriage.  The more resources the LGBT lobby has shifted from reforming gay culture to erecting a façade of suburban marital normalcy that precious few gays can ever really obtain, the gloomier and unhappier gay people have become as individuals.  Yet to bear witness on this topic is relentlessly painful.

Four Decades Eroding the Foundation of Liberty.  In 1986, in Bowers v. Hardwick, the Supreme Court turned back a challenge to the Georgia law that prohibited same-sex sodomy.  In a concurring opinion, Chief Justice Warren Burger made a telling point.  "I join the court's opinion, but I write separately to underscore my view that, in constitutional terms, there is no such thing as a fundamental right to commit homosexual sodomy," said Burger.  "As the court notes, the proscriptions against sodomy have very 'ancient roots,'" he said.  "Decisions of individuals relating to homosexual conduct have been subject to state intervention throughout the history of Western civilization.  Condemnation of those practices is firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian moral and ethical standards."  "To hold that the act of homosexual sodomy is somehow protected as a fundamental right would be to cast aside millennia of moral teaching," said Burger.  Seventeen years later, in the case of Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court did just that.  It reversed Bowers and declared that same-sex sodomy was indeed a right.

Hate Crime Tip-hoaxing.  Two recent incidents have caused many people, including blogger Elizabeth Scalia, to suggest that people stop tipping with cash, in order to prevent being falsely accused of a hate crime. [...] So, if you want to avoid being falsely accused of stiffing on a tip and committing a hate crime, always put the tip on your credit card.  And save your receipts and credit card bills.

Senate approves gay rights bill.  The Senate passed a historic piece of gay rights legislation Thursday [11/7/2013] that would ban workplace discrimination against gay and transgender employees, another milestone victory for a gay rights movement that has been gaining favor in the courts and electoral politics.  The 64 to 32 vote to approve the Employment Non-Discrimination Act marked the first time federal lawmakers had approved legislation to advance gay rights since repealing the military's ban on gay men and lesbians in uniform in late 2010.

ENDA Uses Gays To Saddle Business With New Layer of Bureaucracy.  With everything from health care to immigration a non-starter in Washington, it's no surprise that Democrats are now scraping bottom with a badly designed law intended to end supposed widespread job discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders and others known as "questioning." [...] But ENDA isn't about changing attitudes, or ensuring flourishing businesses.  Everything about it is a chaos agent that's likely to trample first freedoms and trash business efficiency through new bureaucratic and tort nightmares.  For one, ENDA isn't focused on protecting the sexual identities of employees, as the Civil Rights Act is, but on extending to particular behaviors associated with unconventional sexuality new protected privileges, notes the Heritage Foundation and other observers.

We are watching the creation of another protected class of people who will make it even more difficult for small businesses to stay afloat.  The same was true with affirmative action and with the ADA.  And now, every time a man in a dress applies for a job, the small business owner will have to hire the guy, or face a discrimination lawsuit.  New employees of this sort will then be immune from termination for the same reason.  Steadily, gradually and incrementally, the political left is making capitalism infeasible through the use of government red tape.

Ban on Gay Bias Gains Ground in Senate.  Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat of West Virginia, said Wednesday [10/30/2013] that he would vote for a nondiscrimination bill that protects gay men, lesbians and transgender people, putting the measure within one vote of gaining the support it needs to overcome a filibuster.

Sexual Predator Honored With U.S. Postage Stamp.  Harvey Milk's only claim to fame is that he was the first openly homosexual candidate to be elected to public office (San Francisco city commissioner).  His chief cause was to do away with the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic.  In 1978 Milk was murdered over a non-related political dispute by fellow Democrat Dan White.  And a "progressive" martyr was born.  Merriam Webster defines "pederast" as "one who practices anal intercourse especially with a boy."  It defines "statutory rape" as "the crime of having sex with someone who is younger than an age that is specified by law."  Harvey Milk was both a pederast and, by extension, a statutory rapist.

Baltimore's gay community to name Pelosi a 'Hometown Hero'.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a Baltimore native, will next month receive a "lifetime achievement award for her longtime dedication to LGBT rights and her work to fight HIV/AIDS in Congress," gay leaders in Baltimore said Friday [10/25/2013].  The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore is giving Pelosi the award at its inaugural "Hometown Hero Awards & Champagne Brunch" on Nov. 17 in Baltimore, an event it expects some 500 people to attend.

Gay rights supporters wage a quiet campaign to push Republicans to the middle.  [A] powerful group of Republican donors, who see the GOP's staunch opposition to gay rights as a major problem, is trying to push the party toward a more welcoming middle ground — where candidates who oppose marriage rights can do so without seeming hateful.

Reuters asks staff if they are 'intersex,' 'transsexual,' 'genderqueer,' male-to-female.  The 60,000-strong Thomson Reuters media empire, in an effort to determine its diversity success, is asking its staff of reporters, researchers, marketers and others to pick their sex from nine choices, including "genderqueer," a category for identities other than man or woman.  According to the company's annual employee survey, choosing a sexual identity doesn't have to be based on a worker's actual sex, but instead "a person's innate, deeply felt psychological identification."

The International Gay War on Black People.  Crystal Dixon was an African-American administrator in Toledo who authored a rebuttal against someone who'd accused the University of Toledo of economic discrimination against homosexual couples.  Dixon said, "I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are 'civil rights victims.'  Here's why.  I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman."  She went on to clarify the illegitimacy of the economic comparison.

Why aren't we being warned?  We've been hearing about the dangers of tobacco for decades, while, during the same period, tobacco companies have been strictly limited in the forms of marketing they may use to peddle their product. [...] What if I were to tell you about another activity which is also exceptionally dangerous?  This activity leads to:
  •   A twenty-five to thirty-year decrease in life expectancy.
  •   Chronic, potentially fatal, liver disease -- infectious hepatitis, which increases the risk of liver cancer.
  •   Inevitably fatal immune disease including associated cancers.
  •   Frequently fatal rectal cancer.
  •   Multiple bowel and other infectious diseases.
  •   A much higher than usual incidence of suicide.

The AAP attempts to normalize perversion.
Pediatricians have a new mission: Fight 'homophobia'.  In its first sexual-orientation policy update in nearly a decade, the nation's largest pediatricians group said its members should do more to fight "heterosexism" and "homophobia," as well as step up their care of teens with same-sex attractions.  "Sexual-minority youth should not be considered abnormal," the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) said in its new materials on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youths, released Monday [6/24/2013].

Truth about Homosexuality.  Gay marriage, high school gay clubs, gays in the Boy Scouts, gays adopting -- all of these issues have one simple aim in the end:  to legitimize, in as many people's eyes as possible, men having sex with men or women having sex with women.  The Times, with Alma Bowen's May 1 column, contributed to many of the myths about homosexuality.  Mrs. Bowen's use of phrases like "instinctive desires" and "gender identity" give the impression that homosexuality is an "in-born" trait.  In other words, she is implying that there is some "gay gene" that exists in homosexuals.  There is no science which supports this belief.

DOJ on 'Gays': 'Silence Will be Interpreted as Disapproval'.  [Scroll down]  The document is chilling.  It's riddled with directives that grossly violate — prima facie — employees' First Amendment liberties.  Following are excerpts from the "DOJ Pride" decree.  When it comes to "LGBT" employees, managers are instructed:  "DON'T judge or remain silent.  Silence will be interpreted as disapproval."

'I Was Born This Way'.  [Scroll down]  What the researchers found was that lesbians in their sample of women over 35 were more likely than the heterosexual women to have a "previous mental health diagnosis" and to be well-educated, and significantly more likely to be obese (40.2% compared to 30.4%).  Most importantly, lesbians were almost twice as likely as matched heterosexual women to be have been victims of "intrafamilial" child sexual abuse (CSA), and more than twice as likely to be victims of extrafamilial CSA.

25 Reasons To Dislike Liberals.  [#2]  Because the closest thing to Sodom and Gomorrah in the modern world is San Francisco and Berkeley.

Movement to Normalize Pedophilia Finds Its Poster Girl.  In January, Rush Limbaugh warned that there was "an effort under way to normalize pedophilia," and was ridiculed by liberals (including CNN's Soledad O'Brien) for saying so.  But now liberals have joined a crusade that, if successful, would effectively legalize sex with 14-year-olds in Florida.  The case involves Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt, an 18-year-old in Sebastian, Florida, who was arrested in February after admitting that she had a lesbian affair with a 14-year high-school freshman.  It is a felony in Florida to have sex with 14-year-olds.

Is There Such a Thing as a 'Gay Disease'?  The slow-motion meningitis outbreak among gay men in New York City took a possibly frightening turn this weekend when a rapidly fatal case of the disease was seen in a previously healthy young gay lawyer in Los Angeles.

The census does not enumerate homosexuals.  Most assertions about their numbers are speculative.
The Statistics of Gay Men.  [Scroll down]  Two of the most recent such surveys were by Gary Gates of UCLA's Williams Institute, and Gallup.  Gates took several old phone surveys and did his mumbo-jumbo and came up with an astoundingly precise figure of 2,491,034 gay men.  I shall never forget it, for it's so absurd.  There's no logical or mathematical way that phone surveys over a decade can produce such a figure.

AG sues florist who refused flowers to gay wedding.  State Attorney General Bob Ferguson on Tuesday filed a consumer protection lawsuit against Arlene's Flowers & Gifts, a Richland florist that refused to supply flowers to the same-sex marriage of a longtime customer.  Ferguson said he sent a March 28 letter to owner Barronelle Stutzman asking her to reconsider and supply flowers to customer Robert Ingersoll.  Through an attorney, Stutzman declined to change her position.

Low Life Gay Radicals Send Profanity Laced Screeds to Two Girls.  William Bigelow of Breitbart.com is reporting that there have been two targeted attacks of young girls in the past two months by homosexual activists who were upset by the girls' stance in favor of traditional marriage.  The first victim, 11 year-old Grace Evans, received some "rather colorful comments" from activists upset with her bold testimony before the Minnesota House Committee on Civil Law in February.

California tax bill seeks to punish Scouts for gay ban.  California lawmakers are considering taking some tax exemptions away from youth groups that do not accept gay, transgender or atheist members — a move intended to pressure the Boy Scouts of America to lift its ban on gay Scouts and troop leaders.

Thou Shalt Not be Catholic.  It was prescience, not paranoia, that prompted some social commentators to predict that gay activism would become the principle threat to religious freedoms in America.  A recent incident at George Washington University provides the latest confirmation.  In 2010, the University of Illinois fired a Catholic professor who taught courses on Catholicism in the school's religion department after a student accused him of hate speech because the professor affirmed what the Catholic Church taught about homosexual practice.

Phoenix mayor, council open the women's bathroom door for men.  On Feb. 26, the Phoenix City Council passed the so-called "Bathroom Bill," which will allow not only "transgendered" men, but also any man who thinks he is a woman to use many of the same public restrooms that women and young girls use.  The bill, which passed 5-3, is a sterling example of how a mayor and city council can quickly forego their duty to protect women and children in order to win the praise and support of special-interest groups in the community.

How the LGBT Lobby Dominates.  I never knew the extent of a lobby's power until fate called me to speak on behalf of children's rights.  Now, six months after having come forward with a logical, secular argument against same-sex parenting based on experience, broad research, and international law, I have been met with vicious attacks and something far worse than viciousness:  a massive nationwide cold shoulder.  Both left and right are allied in a complete blackout of dissent from LGBT orthodoxy.

An Open Letter to "Gay" Teens.  You are being used.  Adult homosexual activists with a political agenda are using you as a pawn to achieve selfish goals in a dangerous political game.  You're just a means to an end.

LGBT Rights Group Sues School for Banning Transgender 6-Year-Old Boy from Girls' Bathroom.  A six-year-old boy who has been told that he cannot use the girls' restroom at his elementary school is being discriminated against, because he is transgender, an LGBT advocacy group claims in a civil rights complaint, according to a report in a Colorado Springs newspaper, The Gazette.  Coy Mathis' mother said her son has lived as a girl, including dressing in girls' clothing, using the girls' bathroom at school and having teachers refer to her as a girl.

Warning:  This article includes graphic descriptions of what homosexuals do.  Their behavior isn't funny, it isn't cute, and it isn't normal.

A Record of Sexual Abuse of Boy Scouts by Homosexuals.  For many years homosexualists (those who support the homosexual agenda) have tried to get The Boy Scouts to allow homosexual boys and homosexual men leaders into the Scouts.  Vicious pressure has been used.  They brought lawsuits against the Scouts, and took one to the United States Supreme Court, which, fortunately, they lost.  They have gotten cities, civic organizations, and even churches, to deny use of their property to the Scouts.  They have been successful in getting organizations and private corporations to deny contributions to the Scouts.  They are indeed an evil powerful group.

CNN's Piers Morgan: Amend the Bible to Embrace Homosexuality.  CNN host Piers Morgan, who is already facing angry deportation calls from thousands of Americans over his attacks on the Second Amendment, is calling for a gay marriage amendment to the Bible, Townhall.com reports.  During a discussion on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" on Christmas Eve with megachurch pastor Rick Warren, Morgan argued that there needs to be an "amendment to the Bible" for same-sex marriage.

Court Blocks Calif. Ban On Gay Therapy.  A federal appeals court on Friday put the brakes on a first-of-its-kind California law that bans therapy aimed at turning gay minors straight.

Yes, homosexuality is a choice.  According to Peter Schmidt in the Chronicle of Higher Education, yet another individual working in higher education has been demolished for saying the wrong thing about homosexuality.  The basis on which to define people as "anti-gay" has, however, taken a turn to the absurd (and eerie).

Massive study finds only 3.4% of American adults identify as LGBT.  A massive new survey published this morning reveals that only 3.4% of American adults publicly identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, with the highest percentage coming among the younger, less-educated non-whites.  The new Gallup Poll of more than 121,000 adults, the largest of its kind on record, wass [sic] conducted during the past four months.

Proposed Ban on Public Nudity Offends Some in San Francisco.  A city supervisor here proposed a law Tuesday [10/2/2012] that would ban nudity in most public places across the city.  For years, the city has held an "equilibrium" with nudity at public events and occasionally in neighborhoods, said the supervisor, Scott Wiener, but the nudity recently "has just gotten extreme."  At issue is a public plaza that regularly attracts nudists in the historically gay Castro neighborhood, prompting a debate about the limits of civil liberties in this famously tolerant city.

California becomes first state in nation to ban 'gay cure' therapy for children.  California has become the first state in the nation to ban therapy that tries to turn gay teens straight.  Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday [9/30/2012] that he has signed Senate Bill 1172, which prohibits children under age 18 from undergoing "sexual orientation change efforts."  The law, which goes into effect Jan. 1, prohibits state-licensed therapists from engaging in these practices with minors.

The Editor says...
If there is such a therapy, and it works, that proves that homosexuality is a choice, not a genetic condition, as so many homosexuals claim.  If this therapy doesn't work, why is it so vigorously opposed?

Suppressing Reparative Therapy Is Suppressing Freedom.  Reparative therapy is not unjust, but California's law proscribing it is.  It's oppressive, not progressive; it's restrictive of freedom.  It's censorship.  In the government banning reparative therapy, basic freedom is at stake.  In the name of liberty, this oppressive and restrictive California law must be fought before it spreads.

Improper theft of a movement.  Gay activists have long sought to make Americans believe gays, lesbians, et al, have suffered the same myriad miseries throughout their lives as blacks have since this land's colonization.  It's true enough that homosexuals and lesbians have been abused and stigmatized; however, the argument that they mirror the fight for equal rights blacks have experienced is weaker than water flowing down the Rio Grande.

The 'Gay'-Activist Science Deniers.  Woe to any scientist with an interest in objectively researching and reporting on "LGBT"-related issues.  If your findings fail the left's socio-political "butterflies-and-rainbows" litmus test, the "progressive" establishment will try to destroy you — guaranteed.

California law barring parents from 'curing' gay children moves through legislature.  A first-of-its-kind state law that would restrict parents from trying to "cure" their minor children's same-sex attractions seems headed to the governor's desk.  If both state houses can agree on the final language, the legislation, which would ban all sexual orientation change effort (SOCE) treatment for minors, will be sent to Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature sometime in September.  But, so far, there has been no indication from his office on whether he will sign the bill into law.

The Dumbest Word in the English Language.  I submit to you that there is no dumber word in the English language than "homophobe" (and its derivatives).  The word was coined by psychologist and gay activist George Weinberg in his 1972 book Society and the Healthy Homosexual.  The book was published one year prior to when the American Psychiatric Association, with a vote of 5,834 to 3,810, removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.  The word became an important tool for homosexual activists and their allies.  Weinberg gave them a "medical" phobia with which to attack their opponents.

School Wants to Oust Church Over Anti-Gay Sermons.  The head of Miami-Dade County Public Schools wants to evict a Southern Baptist church that rents space in one of their buildings because of the congregation's opposition to homosexuality.  Supt. Alberto Carvalho released a statement to a local television station alleging that Impact Miami's opposition to homosexuality "appears to be contrary to school board policy as well as the basic principles of humanity."

AIDS risk higher for gay, bisexual black men.  Black men who are gay or bisexual are "at the center" of the U.S. HIV/AIDS epidemic and should be a primary focus of testing, service and treatment efforts, a federal official and advocates said Wednesday [7/18/2012].  Black men who have sex with men account for one in four new HIV infections, even though they represent only one in 500 Americans, the Black AIDS Institute said in its new report, "Back of the Line: The State of AIDS Among Black Gay Men in America 2012."

Homosexuals have special rights and privileges no one else has.
Married Olympians: We Can't Live Together During Games, But Gay Couples Can.  An Australian Olympic married couple claims they have been prohibited from sharing a room in the London Olympic Village, even though gay couples are reportedly allowed to do so.  Olympic shooters Russell and Lauryn Mark told news.com.au that they are being discriminated against by officials.

Well, the Episcopalians Did It Again.  Episcopalian leaders continue to guide their denomination into the abyss — and no doubt, the Presbyterians (PCUSA) will soon follow.  As reported in the Huffington Post, the Episcopal denomination's General Convention voted this week to make it illegal to "discriminate against anyone."  Specifically, that means it is now illegal to "...bar from the priesthood people who were born into one gender and live as another or who do not identify themselves as male or female."

Google Launches Campaign to Force Global Tolerance of Homosexuality.  One of the most powerful and ubiquitous online entities in the world is using its influence to try to force tolerance of homosexuality on the entire world.  Google, which in June banned guns and ammunition from its online shopping site as unsafe for families, announced the launch of its "Legalize Love" campaign July 7 to pressure countries that either do not recognize "gay rights" or outlaw homosexual behavior altogether to change their laws.  In its rollout of the project, the Fortune 500 company attempted to frame its crusade as an attempt to promote safer conditions for homosexuals in countries where Google has offices.

New NBC Show Claims Gay Parents Are 'The New Normal'.  From the twisted imagination that spawned the pro-gay high school show "Glee" comes another new sitcom that is poised to take the gay agenda even further.  Aptly-named "The New Normal," the show depicts a gay couple's quest to have a child via a surrogate mother and the awful conservative grandmother who dares oppose them.

Pathetic Dan Savage.  June is Gay Pride Month, which immediately begs two questions:  1. Says who?  2. How is it that we have become a nation of such compliant sheep that we accept this rubbish?  The Viacom corporation, on the other hand, thinks it's the perfect opportunity for its MTV and gay Logo channels to announce they're creating a second "It Gets Better," anti-bullying special starring their favorite gay bully, Dan Savage.

S.F. gay rights advocate arrested over child porn.  San Francisco police have arrested veteran gay rights advocate Larry Brinkin in connection with felony possession of child pornography.  Brinkin, 66, who worked for the San Francisco Human Rights Commission before his retirement in 2010, was taken into custody Friday night [6/22/2012].

Gay Rights Icon Arrested on Child Porn Charges.  Larry Brinkin, the gay activist who led the fight to get San Francisco to recognize domestic partnerships, was arrested for child pornography today [6/26/2012].  Items seized from his home included computers, videos, tapes, and discs.  He had been a long-time employee of the Human Rights Commission, and a central figure in the gay rights movement.

Rethinking Gay Marriage.  Anyone who is active in the political world knows that the most obnoxious, profane, hateful partisans, the ones most likely to engage in harassment, are the left-wing gay activists.  So I was not at all surprised to see the latest misbehavior from that source:  gay activists invited to the White House for a "gay pride" event by President Obama photographed each other making obscene gestures toward Ronald Reagan's portrait.

Americans Have No Idea How Few Gay People There Are.  In recent years, as homosexuality has become less stigmatized, pro-gay rights groups have come around to acknowledging that a smaller percent of people identify themselves as gay than some of the early gay rights rhetoric claimed, based on Alfred Kinsey's 1948 report, "Sexuality in the Human Male."

Homosexuality is Not Normal.  Gay marriage is an oxymoron.  Nothing about it fits or works or makes sense in any way.  When we stop defining issues Biblically and through common sense and began interpreting everything emotionally, the truth becomes irrelevant and insanity reigns.  However, rather than focusing on gay marriage specifically, consider the irrationality of homosexuality.  Homosexuals do not match physically.  There is no point in elaborating with a description of male and female anatomy.  Besides, my writings are always G rated.  Homosexuals, and especially men, are more susceptible to health problems, infections and a shorter life span than heterosexuals.  There is conclusive proof available in studies for those who will search the internet and in libraries.  People of the same sex do not fit one another physically.  Have you ever noticed among homosexual men, one tends to be more masculine and the other feminine and among lesbian couples, one tends toward masculinity and the other is more feminine?  This unintentional tendency to define two genders validates heterosexuality.

California Senate Approves Bill Banning Therapy Aimed at Stopping Minors from Becoming Homosexual.  The California state Senate voted Wednesday [5/30/2012] to prohibit parents from seeking professional counseling for their children with the goal of preventing them from becoming homosexuals.  SB 1172 would prohibit psychotherapists from performing sexual orientation change efforts "in the absence of informed consent of the patient."

The Editor says...
Homosexuals often claim that they were "born that way", so why would they even acknowledge that there are those who are contemplating becoming homosexuals?  Apparently the cocern here is that if a person can decide to become a homosexual, then obviously one can decide not to be a homosexual.  Just as in the Biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah, you have to wonder:  Why is homosexuality so important to these people (the politicians and the activists), as if it is some sacred tradition or God-given right that must be preserved?  Exactly the opposite is true.

Sebelius touts health law's work for LGBT community.  Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius touted the impact of the 2010 healthcare law on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans in a statement celebrating LGBT Pride Month.  "All Americans, no less LGBT individuals, deserve the right to accessible, affordable, quality healthcare," Sebelius said Friday.

The Editor says...
Health care is not a right, and the people who engage in perverse, disease-spreading behavior deserve medical care less than anyone because they bring their health problems upon themselves.

On Love, Homosexuality, and Sin.  Biblical teaching on human sexuality is clear:  As a group of orthodox Anglican pastors put it some years ago, Heterosexual marriage is upheld in Scripture and Christian tradition to be the only appropriate context for acts of physical sexual intimacy."  This is the instruction of the Bible from its opening through its closing pages.  Scripture offers us no latitude on this subject.  Its teaching is clear and definitive. [...] Informing much of this discussion is the insistence of activists that homosexual conduct be recognized as normal and moral.  Not just by society, but by the believing church.

UMC Affirms That Homosexuality Is "Incompatible With Christian Teaching".  Following some some intense debate and emotional appeals from homosexual factions within its numbers, the United Methodist Church (UMC) affirmed May 2 that homosexual activity is "incompatible with Christian teaching."  The decision, which came at the UMC's General Conference in Tampa, Florida, is certain to prompt backlash from the homosexual activist community, which for years has been pushing the denomination to abamdon its scriptural position on sexuality and officially allow the oridnation of "gay" clergy and the "marriages" of same-sex partners.

The Truth About Homosexuality:  When discussing same-sex attraction's cause, the first thing usually mentioned is the much touted "homosexual gene" theory.  In fact, the idea has been repeated so often that many today accept it as fact.  But the reality is this:  Neither the groundbreaking Genome Project nor any other research endeavor has found any such gene.  Moreover, it makes no sense from an evolutionary (or selective breeding, if you prefer) standpoint.  After all, such a gene would greatly reduce the chances of its bearer procreating, would be unlikely to be passed on, and thus would be a dead-end mutation unable to survive many generations.  And, I must say, it's a testimonial to the emotion-oriented decision-making of secular modernists — who are generally staunch evolutionists — that they would glom on to a theory so contrary to Evolution 101.

For Obama, Gay Is Green.  Mr. Obama is pandering to gays with his marriage switcheroo for two reasons:  1) money; 2) onground support.  Gays aren't a large cohort in the U.S., despite misconceptions and propaganda.  For years, it was in wide circulation that gays constituted 10% of the U.S. population.  A May 2011 Gallup poll claims that Americans, on the whole, perceive that gays are about 1 in 4 Americans.  Not so.  Gays are more like 3.5% of the nation's citizenry.  Yet gays have a disproportionate influence in politics.

Hollywood: Driving the Homosexual Agenda for 40 Years.  Hollywood celebrities exuberantly celebrated President Obama's recent declaration of support for gay marriage.  But Hollywood did not have to come out of the closet and support homosexuality — it has long used its influence to purposely swing public opinion in favor of homosexuality.  For several decades, Hollywood has shown its overt support for homosexuality.  Brokeback Mountain was nominated for Best Picture for its unabashedly sympathetic portrayal of a doomed gay relationship.  Newt Gingrich's half-sister officiated at a gay wedding on "Friends" in the 1990s.  More recently, late night talk show host Conan O'Brian officiated at an actual gay wedding.

Creepy-crawlies for the evolved Obama.  The moral imprimatur that homosexuals seek is the endorsement from the larger culture, of the straight, sober society that lives beyond gay-pride parades with their outlandish prancing and eight-foot papier-mache penises meant to taunt those whose approval they secretly want most.  Such approval is beyond the power of presidents, whether Barack Obama or Bill Clinton, to confer.  The landslide of disdain for same-sex marriage in North Carolina, the 30th state in a row to give such rebuke, demonstrates just how far the gays still have to go to overturn centuries of rejection and scorn of homosexual behavior.

Democrats Run Fundraiser Celebrating Barney Frank's Coming Out Anniversary.  The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is holding a very special campaign event for Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) on May 30.  It's an important 25th anniversary that deserves celebration, according to the DCCC.  What happened 25 years ago?  He came out of the closet as gay.  "Barney is an inspiration to all of us as one of the first openly gay Congressmen to serve in the House," writes Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), another openly gay Congressman.  "This event will be particularly moving for me as it will be one of our last events with him before he retires this year."

Did anyone ask Sonia Sotomayor or Elena Kagan?
California judges asked to say if they are gay.  It used to be considered bad form to out gay public figures — but now California judges are being asked to reveal their sexual identities in the name of diversity.  The Judicial Applicant and Appointment Demographics Inclusion Act, which took effect Jan. 1, requires the state to ask its 1,600 judges whether they are homosexual.  The goal is to "promote and increase the representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the state's judicial branch," according to Equality California, which pushed for the bill.

UN Calls for 'Gay Spring' in Africa.  The United Nations may soon impose economic sanctions and halt aid to Africa if countries on the continent continue to oppose the legalization of gay marriage.

Hillary Clinton: 'Religious Beliefs' Are 'Standing in the Way of Protecting Human Rights of LGBT People'.  Religious beliefs and cultural values do not justify the failure to uphold the human rights of homosexuals, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the United Nations in Geneva on Tuesday [12/6/2011].  "Now, raising this issue, I know, is sensitive for many people and that the obstacles standing in the way of protecting the human rights of LGBT people rest on deeply held personal, political, cultural, and religious beliefs," Clinton said.

A Global Gay-Rights Crusade.  There is some that is commendable and much that is pernicious in Secretary Clinton's speech Tuesday [12/6/2011] announcing that the United States will be making "LGBT rights" — that is, the rights of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgendered persons — "a priority of our foreign policy" and a factor in determining the uses of "foreign assistance."

New Bill Would Extend Federal Employment Benefits to Homosexual Partners.  In a deep bow to the homosexual lobby, a small army of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced legislation that would extend employee benefits to the same-sex partners of federal workers.  Under H.R. 3485, homosexual partners of federal employees would be eligible for such benefits as retirement, life insurance, health insurance, workers compensation, and death benefits.  "The federal government must set an example as an equal opportunity employer," the bill's sponsor, lesbian Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) was quoted by The Hill as saying.

Homosexuals Aggressively Push Agenda in Federal Government.  While [John] Berry may be one of the most high-profile homosexuals serving in the Obama administration, he is by no means the only one.  According to the Washington Post, no less than 200 "LGBT presidential appointees serve under President Obama, among them the first two who are openly transgender."  Additionally, thanks to Obama's aggressive efforts on their behalf, "gay men and lesbians can serve openly in the armed forces. Intrusive questions about sex lives have been purged from security-clearance vettings."

The Homosexual Movement and the Decline of Morality in America.  [Scroll down to page 437]  The term "homosexual agenda" is used to describe the goals and purposes of the activist homosexual movement. ... The primary goal is the complete acceptance by society of sodomy as a wholesome exemplary way of life.  A further purpose is to recruit others into participating in their destructive lifestyle.  Since their sexual acts are not designed for reproduction of the species, as is normal sexual behavior of people and animals, this is the only way that they can get new bodies into their group for participation in their perversions.  Their attack has been well planned and well executed.  In the 1970s they began having amazing success in their lobbying efforts to get state sodomy laws repealed.  Where they could not get them repealed they attacked them in court.  But they did not have much success in their court attacks, at least until recent years.

The Gay Playbook, And How It's 'Overhauling' America.  Consider yourself "overhauled," America.  You've been played, in favor of a behavior that was once criminalized; one that most world religions — which have been around for far longer than this country — still condemn.

Participation in July Fourth celebrations is America's real divide.  [Scroll down]  Indeed, the "gay pride" parade, perhaps more than any other, best encapsulates the values embraced by today's secular-progressive left.  Think about it.  It's got it all:
  •   Obscenely expensive, taxpayer-funded actions-without-consequences gaiety.
  •   Celebration of a caution-to-the-wind, enjoy-now-pay-later lifestyle.
  •   Men who act like women and women who look like men.
  •   Flamboyant narcissism, moral relativism and plenty of gyrating nude bodies.
  •   Colorful public sex displays to forever confuse, desensitize and sexualize the kiddos.
  •   Lots of anti-Americanism.
  •   And a total absence of God.

CDC: Homosexual men account for 61% of new HIV infections but only 2% of population.  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has estimated that homosexual men account for 61% of the new HIV infections in the United States while they only amount to about 2% of the country's population.  Earlier this month, the CDC released estimates for HIV infections from 2006-2009 showing that new infections remained stable at around 50,000 for each of the four years.

Senate confirms first openly gay man to federal bench.  J. Paul Oetken on Monday [7/18/2011] became the first openly gay man confirmed to the federal bench.  The Senate approved his nomination 80 to 13.  Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who recommended Oetken to President Obama for the nomination to the District Court for the Southern District of New York, offered a ringing endorsement from the Senate floor prior to the roll-call vote.

California's Book Ban.  The California state legislature has passed a book-banning law.  Nobody is calling the book ban a book ban because the books the book ban bans offend homosexuals.  If the legislature had extended legislative protection to the hurt feelings of, say, Mormons or evangelical Christians, then everyone would have agreed that it's a book ban.  But it doesn't, so don't call the book ban a book ban.  You just might get banned, too.

Gay Men: The Democrats' Reserve Army of Histrionics.  Gay leaders don't care about people whose stories don't match their talking points.  If you're good-looking, registered to vote, and willing to campaign for Barack Obama, you matter!  But if you just got beat up down range and decide the Army isn't for you, don't ask gay liberals for help.  If you're thirty and coming to grips with your religion and decide you do not want to remain in the gay lifestyle, be damned.  If you got AIDS in a bathhouse in a moment of desperation, get lost — your story makes for bad ratings.

Is Obama Stacking The West Point Board With Activists?  President Obama on Tuesday [7/5/2011] appointed an openly gay former Army officer to the U.S. Military Academy's Board of Visitors.  Former Capt. Brenda S. "Sue" Fulton, a founding board member of OutServe, an association of actively serving gay military personnel, is also co-founder and executive director of Knights Out, an organization of gay West Point graduates.  She graduated in 1980 with the first West Point class to include women.

Education Secretary Advises School Districts on Homosexual Clubs for Students.  Education Secretary Arne Duncan issued a "Dear Colleagues" letter on June 14 advising federally funded schools about establishing clubs on campuses, specifically Gay-Straight Alliance clubs for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.  The letter was issued from the department's Office of Civil Rights for elementary and secondary schools and was sent to all school districts in the United States, according to Jo Ann Webb, spokesperson for the Department of Education (DOE).

Obama Praises Homosexual 'Spouses' in Gay Gathering at White House.  At the urging of homosexuals gathered at the White House on Wednesday [6/29/2011], President Barack Obama praised gay "spouses" in his speech marking lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender "Pride Month."

ATF Hosts Its First Gay Pride' Observance.  The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), under fire for allowing U.S.-purchased guns to flow to Mexican criminals, celebrated its first gay pride event on Wednesday [6/22/2011].  The celebration at ATF's Washington headquarters was intended to recognize the "accomplishments and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans to ATF and the nation, and to promote awareness of the LGBT culture," ATF said in a news release.  "ATF works to ensure sexual orientation discrimination and prejudice are not tolerated in our workplace," said Acting Director Kenneth Melson.

Gay donors fuel President Obama's 2012 campaign.  President Barack Obama's reelection campaign is banking on gay donors to make up the cash it's losing from other groups of wealthy supporters who have been alienated and disappointed by elements of Obama's first term.  Pleased by an all-out White House push to repeal "don't ask, don't tell," gay donors have surprised campaign officials with the extent of their support.

HHS Official Tells Youth Summit: We're Recruiting LGBTs to Adopt Kids.  David Hansell, who runs the federal government's Administration for Children and Families, told a group of high school students at the U.S. Department of Education's "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT)" youth summit on Tuesday [6/7/2011] that the Obama administration is recruiting "LGBT parents" to adopt children.

Gov't 'Has Finally Come Out of the Closet'.  Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius spoke at the first "Federal LGBT Youth Summit" on Monday [6/6/2011] after being introduced by a homosexual on her staff, who said the secretary "gets us" and is "tireless" in her support of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender youth.  "Your federal government has finally come out of the closet in support of LGBT youth," said Pam Hyde, HHS administrator for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services.

California Bill Could Protect Cross-Dressing in the Work Force.  A California bill working its way through the state legislature providing more protection for transgender individuals in the workplace could allow for cross-dressing employees to wear whatever they want to work, despite workplace dress codes.

The Editor says...
Apparently the government's position is that employers do not have the freedom to associate -- or refrain from associating -- with whomever they choose.

Presbyterians set to drop celibacy rule for gay clergy.  The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is poised to abolish a celibacy requirement for its gay and lesbian clergy, after decades of debate that have divided the denomination and split Protestants worldwide.

The Make-Believe World of Homosexualists.  In the current make-believe world of the activist homosexuals, and homosexualists such as Apple, the fact that sexual orientation can be changed must be kept hidden to the extent possible.  The truth is contrary to their current false propaganda that homosexuality is an inherited condition that cannot be changed.

NBA's gay gag order:  Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant was socked with a $100,000 fine by the NBA last week for calling a referee what the NBA thinks is a derogatory, ugly and vile name.  To be exact, Mr. Bryant committed this egregious verbal foul because he used a word demeaning to homosexuals, the most protected class of people in America.

Comedian, Vancouver restaurant ordered to pay for insults against lesbian.  A Toronto comedian and Vancouver restaurant owner were ordered to pay $22,500 by a B.C. Human Rights Tribunal on Thursday [4/21/2011] after the standup comic hurled a torrent of sexual insults at a woman and her same-sex partner during a comedy show three years ago.

Modern Use of the Term, "Latent Homosexuality".  A part of the propaganda of the homosexualists was trying to make the public believe that homosexuality was widespread, using the often repeated, but false statement that 10% of the people were homosexual; when many valid studies indicated less that 2%.  They tried to make the public falsely believe that many famous and well respected people were homosexual.  Specific examples, are Jesus Christ, his Apostles, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and innumerable others.  They have also used the term, "latent homosexuality," to try to increase the number further.

A Branded Man.  In recent years, there has been an effort to equate the current homosexual rights movement with the black civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s.  But the analogy fails for two principal reasons:  1) The homosexual movement can't find a reverend named Martin Luther Queen, and 2) unlike blacks, homosexuals generally have to invent their own victimization stories so they will have some "social ill" to eradicate.  Of course, such stories are never a manifestation of the illnesses of "society."  They are simply evidence of widespread mental illness in the LGBT "civil rights" movement.

Another Hoax College 'Hate Crime' Charge in North Carolina.  Jumping at the chance to prove their politically correct bona fides, Chapel Hill is up in arms over what is quite obviously a faked attack on a gay student.

Marching in lockstep with homosexual agenda.  "We used to conform behavior to the military.  Now we're conforming the military to behavior."  Rep. Allen B. West, Florida Republican, belled the cat neatly during a hearing last Friday on the military's breakneck pace in implementing the new lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) law.  Mr. West, whose 20-plus years in the U.S. Army included combat commands, noted that he and others at Fort Bragg had to endure "sensitivity training" in the 1990s.  It didn't enhance the "warrior ethos," he recalled.

The Pentagon prepares to welcome recruits to the New Gay Army.
Obama's new 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy:  Soldiers offended by the sight of two male Marines kissing in public better not mention that fact to their superiors.  Under President Obama, the new "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" rules turn the Clinton-era policy on its head.  Now those who embrace traditional moral values are the ones being told to stay in the closet.

Apple's censorship: Rotten to the core.  There was a time in the history of the homosexual movement when their demand was for "tolerance."  That time has passed.  Now, homosexual activists have completely reversed themselves, and routinely demand an aggressive intolerance — for any viewpoints that disagree with theirs, that is.  And what's shocking is that in many cases, large organizations are bowing to such demands.

Judge who struck down Prop 8 confirms he's gay.  The federal judge who struck down California's gay marriage ban has confirmed longtime rumors that he's gay, but said his sexuality was irrelevant in deciding the landmark case.

Military indoctrinated on gays kissing, behavior.  Four branches of the military have begun sending training material to 2.2 million active and reserve troops as a prelude to opening the ranks to gays, with instructions on, for example, what to do if an officer sees two male Marines kissing in a shopping mall.  Key themes are that sexual orientation will no longer be a bar to service, that all service members must respect each other, and that the partners of gay troops will not receive the benefits of heterosexual spouses.

Clash for America's soul.  Despite no promised certification that lifting the military's ban on homosexuality will harm readiness, recruiting or retention, President Obama's Pentagon already has produced materials hatched in a theater of the absurd.  As Washington Times correspondent Rowan Scarborough reports, Marine commanders will have to ponder, for example, what to do if two male Marines are seen kissing in a shopping mall.  Now there's a scenario for building respect for the military among the nation's youngsters.

US demanding gay rights support at UN body.  The Obama administration will introduce its first statement calling for the United Nations' top human rights body to combat discrimination against gays and lesbians around the world, completing a U.S. reversal from years of ambiguity on the subject during the presidency of George W. Bush.

There's No Such Thing as a Pro-Gay-Agenda Conservative.  By definition, conservatives are against the gay agenda because the gay agenda ultimately seeks to overturn the moral order that makes freedom possible.  Fidelity to the natural law — including in the laws of our land — is at the very core of what conservatives seek to conserve.

Can Christianity and the Homosexual AGENDA Co-exist?  For those who subscribe to the Bible's infallible nature — meaning, it is flawless, contains no errors, and have no need of revisions — cannot co-sign those things that are called according to the Bible "indecent acts", "shameful lusts", "unnatural and abnormal relations", "an abomination", and a "wicked thing".  Allow me to ask you to decide, if such a targeted group can peacefully co-exist with an ideology that calls them all of the above?  Can they?  The answer:  no, they cannot.

The Art of War and DADT.  Hollywood is allowed to discriminate based on anything.  "Sorry, but you're too black."  "You're good, but you're too fat."  "I like you, but you aren't pretty enough."  Hollywood can pick whomever they want, for whatever reason and with no repercussions.  Discrimination for the sake of art.  But the military, the people who protect the nation, can't choose whom they want now that gays got their win with the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

Court: San Diego wronged firefighters.  A court says San Diego firefighters cannot be forced to participate in homosexual "pride" parades — and that the city's forcing four of them to do so three years ago subjected them to "sexual harassment."  Four San Diego firefighters filed suit against the city in 2009 and won in the case surrounding their forced participation in a 2007 "gay pride" parade.

Paladino says kids shouldn't be 'brainwashed' into thinking homosexuality is OK.  GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino yesterday went well beyond his opposition to same-sex marriage, telling a Brooklyn Hasidic congregation that children should not be "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option.  It isn't."  He told about 50 worshippers at the K'hal Adas Kashau synagogue in Williamsburg that kids "would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family."

Carl Paladino Spoke the Truth.  For modern American liberals, there is no greater sin than to publicly express the view that there may be something wrong with homosexual activity and that children should not be taught to consider homosexual behavior morally equal to chastity and marriage.  No prominent politician who questions the wholesomeness of same-sex sex can escape a vicious beating by the liberal elite — because these beatings serve a strategic purpose.  They are designed to intimidate good people out of seeking political office and sticking up for the truth.  They are designed to uproot the laws and norms of our society from the immutable natural law that is the true foundation of our freedom.  They are designed to destroy truth and promote a lie.

The 'Gay' Deathstyle.  Millions of self-styled "gay" men have — as a direct result of homosexual conduct — died from AIDS, syphilis, hepatitis and all other forms of homosexually transmitted disease.  Romans 1:26-27, which Obama once comically called an "obscure passage in Romans," addresses the homosexual deathstyle:  "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.  Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.  Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

Science Does Not Support the Claim That Homosexuality Is Genetic.  Americans for too long have been pummeled with the idea that people are "born gay."  The people who most need to hear the truth are those who mistakenly believe they have no chance themselves for change.  It is both more compassionate and truthful to give them hope than to serve them up politically motivated, unproven creations like the "gay gene."

The Corporate Curtain.  America's corporations are under increasing pressure not only to accommodate homosexuality but to celebrate it and to punish employees who object.  Over the past two decades, hundreds of companies have adopted varying degrees of homosexual activism in their official policies.  As a result, a growing number of Christians have been disciplined or fired for resisting the trend.

Google Raises Eyebrows With New Gay-Only Employee Benefit.  A new Google policy is raising some eyebrows after the company revealed it will be compensating employees for taxes paid on domestic partners' health benefits — but only if they're gay.

Augusta State University to student:  Accept homosexuality or leave school.  An Augusta State University counseling student has filed a lawsuit against her school claiming it violated her First Amendment rights when it told her to change her traditionalist Christian views on homosexuality or get out.

Court:  Student Can be Expelled for Christian Beliefs.  A federal judge ruled in favor of a public university who removed a Christian student over her belief that homosexuality is morally wrong.  The decision, according to Julea Ward's attorneys, could result in Christian students across the country being expelled from public university for similar views.

Court Upholds Expulsion of Counseling Student Who Opposes Homosexuality.  A federal judge has ruled in favor of a public university that removed a Christian student from its graduate program in school counseling over her belief that homosexuality is morally wrong.  Monday's [7/26/2010] ruling, according to Julea Ward's attorneys, could result in Christian students across the country being expelled from public university for similar views.

Military Homosexual Scandal Tied to WikiLeaks Treason.  In the scandal involving the theft and release of classified military information that could cost the lives of U.S. military personnel, the British Telegraph newspaper is reporting that the American soldier at the center of the scandal was "openly homosexual" and apparently held a grudge against the U.S. because of the military's anti-gay policy.

The fragmenting of American society.  The divergence in opinion about the Employment Nondiscrimination Act being considered by Congress, illustrates a deep and widening divide in the beliefs of the American public.  Homosexual rights advocates promote the act as necessary to protect homosexual and transgender persons from employment discrimination.  The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and other religious groups state that it would jeopardize religious freedom, have an adverse effect on the privacy and associational rights of others and lead to the redefinition of marriage.  Such polar differences, which occur on many national issues, threaten the social compact underlying America.

The 'Bring Back the Draft' Act.  As early as this week, the United States Senate may turn to the annual legislation known as "The National Defense Authorization Act" (NDAA) that is supposed to provide the Pentagon what it needs to defend our nation.  Unfortunately, thanks to an amendment added in the Senate Armed Services Committee that would impose the radical homosexual agenda on the U.S. military, a more appropriate title for this bill would be "The Bring Back the Draft Act."

Obama Administration to Expand Family Medical Leave Act to Gay and Lesbian Employees.  The Labor Department is poised to announce new regulations this week that order U.S. employers to give gay employees equal treatment under the law, allowing those workers unpaid time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act.  Critics say the Obama administration is going too far.  "They're trying to redefine marriage and family by these arbitrary policies with no debate by congress, no public discussion about it," says Carrie Gordon Earll of Focus on the Family.

Hillary Clinton Urges State Department Employees to Let Teens Know It's Okay to Be Homosexual.  At an event celebrating Gay Pride Month on Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton encouraged State Department employees to let teenagers know homosexuality is okay. ... Clinton's remarks are part of a high-profile campaign by the Obama administration to mark Gay Pride Month with gatherings at various federal agencies, including the State Department on Tuesday.  The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have held similar events.

Lesbian Mothers Think Their Children Are All Above Average.  The National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study (NLLFS), just published in the online edition of the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and funded by the Gill Foundation and the Lesbian Health Fund of the Gay Lesbian Medical Association, claims that children of lesbian mothers do better than children from a married-mom-and-dad family. ... The "study" is neither objective nor comprehensive. ... The "research" consists of the mothers' opinions about their own children...

State Dept. Changes Passport Policy to Accomodate People Who Change Gender.  The U.S. State Department is marking lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender "Pride Month" by changing its policy concerning gender change on passports and consular reports of birth abroad.  As of June 10, the State Department no longer requires that individuals provide proof that they have had sex reassignment surgery, but only requires certification from an "attending physician" that the individual received "appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition," which may or may not include surgery.

Hmmm...  The State Department.  Who's running the State Department these days?  Oh, yes.  I remember now.

University of Illinois Instructor Fired Over Catholic Beliefs.  The University of Illinois has fired an adjunct professor who taught courses on Catholicism after a student accused the instructor of engaging in hate speech by saying he agrees with the church's teaching that homosexual sex is immoral.

The Potential Dangers of Repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Cannot Be Ignored.  Leftists routinely lament America's lack of frank conversation about contentious cultural issues, but whenever the opportunity to begin such discussions arise, conservative views are not engaged, but lazily dismissed as "desperate attempts to distract the public" and "ugly political shouting match[es]."

Obama, Proclaiming LGBT Pride Month, Pushes Repeal of DOMA.  Citing his commitment to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), President Obama on Friday [5/28/2010] issued a proclamation declaring June 2010 "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."  The president also emphasized his intention to secure "adoption rights" for same-sex couples and end both employment discrimination against LGBT individuals as well as the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) compromise that bars homosexuals from serving openly in the military.

A charade with consequences.  The supposed compromise to allow open homosexuality in the military, struck by President Barack Obama, gay rights lobby groups and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is less of an honest meeting in the middle than a political charade to mask a foreordained conclusion.  First, the politics:  It is designed to placate a demanding special interest group.  Its timing is also obvious:  Get the measure passed and signed into law now, far enough away from the November election that it will be lost in the larger cacophony of issues at election time.

Saving Soldiers from Gay Death.  There is a simple reason why the gay rights lobby is trying to rush through repeal of the Pentagon's homosexual exclusion policy.  They know that a comprehensive review of a proposed change would disclose the substantial evidence that admission of open and active homosexuals would put our troops in further danger through exposure to tainted blood. In fact, evidence to this effect is already in the hands of top military commanders and Pentagon officers.

Obama:  June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.  As he did last year, Obama today [5/28/2010] declared June "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month."  But this year the announcement comes as Congress began moving to repeal the controversial "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy used by the US military when dealing LGBT service members.

ENDA:  End it, don't mend it.  President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are ramping up to force the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) down the throats of all American employers, trampling your right to freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of association.  ENDA prohibits workplace "discrimination" on the basis of "sexual orientation or gender identity."  Values-driven employers who happen to be Christians will be forced to hire male employees who want to wear dresses to work and use the women's restroom or face crippling lawsuits.  Employees who express reservations about homosexual conduct will find themselves out of a job.

Conservative Group Says
ENDA Could Open 'Every Classroom in America' to Cross-Dressing Teachers.  Homosexual activists are pressuring the House to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).  They want a vote on the bill as early as this week.  But a conservative group warns that the bill is being rushed to a vote, even though many members of the House — including Democrats — don't support it because it could ban employers from firing transsexuals, cross-dressers or men who think of themselves as women.

Discrimination is necessary.  First-graders should not be forced into the classrooms of teachers undergoing sex changes.  Religious broadcasters and faith-based summer camps should not be forced to hire cross-dressers.  Women should not be forced to share bathrooms with people with male body parts who say they want to be females.  Yet those are some of the likely results if Congress passes H.R. 3017, the so-called Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which is due for a vote this week by the House Education and Labor Committee.

Pedophilia is a homosexual problem.  Homosexuals comprise less than three percent of the population, yet are responsible for one-third of all child sex abuse cases.  There is an overwhelming correlation between homosexual preference and pedophilia.  This is further evidence that homosexuality is in fact sexual deviancy.

Maine Commission Moves to Ban Gender Specific Bathrooms, Sports Teams in Schools.  The Maine Human Rights Commissions taking heat over a proposal to ban schools from enforcing gender divisions in sports teams, school organizations, bathrooms and locker rooms, saying forcing a student into a particular room or group because of their biological gender amounts to discrimination.

Maine Commission Shelves Move to Ban Gender Specific Bathrooms.  After FoxNews.com reported last week on the commission's draft guidelines for how schools should accommodate transgender students, members decided Monday to cancel a public hearing on the issue and indefinitely postpone its work on the brochure entitled "Sexual Orientation in Schools and Colleges."

Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin.  Dale McAlpine was charged with causing "harassment, alarm or distress" after a homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) overheard him reciting a number of "sins" referred to in the Bible, including blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships.  The 42-year-old Baptist, who has preached Christianity in Wokington, Cumbria for years, said he did not mention homosexuality while delivering a sermon from the top of a stepladder, but admitted telling a passing shopper that he believed it went against the word of God.

The Cut-and-Paste Doctrines of the Left:  This semester, the gay activist group SoulForce will make its second visit in four years to the campus of the Christian university where I teach.  We are one of sixteen stops the group will make at campuses deemed to have policies which discriminate against gays.  Their annual tour is called the Equality Ride, an event which reflects the activists' desire for the gay rights movement to be the civil rights movement of our generation.

12 Policies that Undermine Civil Society.  [#2]  A Big Step toward National Same-Sex Marriage.  The House of Representatives is on a trajectory to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2009 (ENDA), just as it did in 2007.  This legislation would disallow discrimination in hiring decisions based on "actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity."  ENDA would give special protected class status to sexual orientation and gender identity — just as is given to race, color, sex and religion.  Legislation like ENDA is a major precursor to legalizing same-sex marriage, as the history of the issue in several states shows.

NAMBLA-Gate:  The Case of Kevin Jennings.  Harry Hay, who "inspired" Obama-appointed Education Department official Kevin Jennings to lead a life of homosexual activism, was not only a supporter of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) but a prominent member of the Communist Party USA and "Radical Faerie" who believed in the power of the occult.  As disclosed by Peter LaBarbera's Americans for Truth organization, Jennings said in 1997 that Hay should serve as an inspiration.  "One of the people that's always inspired me is Harry Hay, who started the first ongoing gay rights group in America," Jennings said.

The Strange Case of Kevin Jennings, Part Two.  [Harry] Hay was summoned to appear before the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1954 to testify about his CPUSA membership.  But because he was officially out of the party by then, he refused to talk about it.  His real contribution to communism in America was developing the idea that homosexuals, like the "workers" under capitalism, were being oppressed and had to assert their "rights."  Although some CPUSA officials disapproved of the homosexual lifestyle, the Hay approach was seen as a means by which American society could be subverted and undermined.

Big city mayors pushing homosexual agenda.  On Monday [6/15/2009] at its annual meeting, the U.S. Conference of Mayors passed a resolution supporting what it calls "marriage equality for same-sex couples."  The resolution also included support for federal bills such as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and the Matthew Shepard Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, as well as repealing the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

My Idea and Your Consequence.  One really bad idea that is thriving in higher education is the so-called trans-gendered rights movement.  It is thriving not because of the work of trans-gendered persons but because of feminists who are willing to use them to advance their own ideas about gender and equality.  Feminists have been increasingly enamored with the idea that there are no innate differences between men and women.  In recent years, they have been arguing with greater and greater frequency that all male/female differences come from the "culture" or that they are "socially constructed."

NASA employee speaks out on 'Pride Month'.  A NASA employee is voicing concern over a recent email and memo from her supervisors.  The controversial memo was sent out by NASA officials to employees and encouraged them to celebrate "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month," in accordance with a presidential proclamation.  NASA officials not only encouraged employees to celebrate the pro-homosexual observance, but also encouraged them to participate in pride events in their communities.  If there was no such event in their community, employees were encouraged to start one.

Schism 'inevitable' after US bishops approve gay ordination.  A worldwide Anglican schism now seems inevitable after Episcopal bishops in the United States today backed the consecration of gay bishops.  Episcopal bishops approved a resolution passed earlier this week by the laity and clergy that allows "partnered gays" full access to ordination.

Homosexual Agenda Illustrates: There Can Be No Compromise With Evil.  Dr. Scott Lively recently wrote a handbook called "Redeeming the Rainbow" on how the homosexual agenda can be defeated.  As Dr. Lively points out, the homosexual agenda is built on lies from start to finish:  lies about the nature of homosexuality, lies about the morality of homosexual behavior, lies about the health risks of homosexual behavior, lies about "tolerance," lies about those who oppose their agenda, and lies about the ultimate aims of the homosexual agenda.  Lively has a law degree and has a Certificate in Human Rights from the International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France.  He has been involved in the pro-family movement for a long time.

Justices decline 'don't ask, don't tell' case.  In refusing to hear a challenge to the military's restriction on gay troops, the Supreme Court has put the issue back into President Obama's lap — and gay rights advocates are starting to get angry over his slow pace in terminating "don't ask, don't tell."  Mr. Obama promised during the campaign to eliminate the policy, though he says he needs to act with Congress.  But advocates say he could end the ban unilaterally or at the very least use his power as commander in chief to stop the dismissal of troops found in violation.

Supreme Court rejects challenge to 'don't ask, don't tell' policy on gays in the military.  The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to the Pentagon policy forbidding gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military, granting a request by the Obama administration.  The court said it will not hear an appeal from former Army Capt. James Pietrangelo II, who was dismissed under the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.  The federal appeals court in Boston earlier threw out a lawsuit filed by Pietrangelo and 11 other veterans.

Manufacturing Consent for the Gay Agenda.  Gay marriage is in.  The Vermont legislature has deemed it a constitutional right.  Nearly every cable and network television show features stereotypical homosexual characters.  Hollywood and Television films on gay martyrs win awards even if the factual data is slightly skewered to invoke sympathy.  Calling attention to this successful propaganda format, however, is unwelcome and hazardous to the whistleblower.

Heterosexual Pride Month.  Obama came through on his campaign theme of 'equality' Monday [6/1/2009] by proclaiming June as "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month".

POTUS to LGBT: "Welcome to Your White House".  ABBA's "Dancing Queen" filled the East Room, as more than 200 prominent gays and lesbians gathered for the first ever celebration of Pride month at the White House.  The President and First Lady entered to thunderous applause.  President Obama told the group he is committed to equality for their community.

Obama holds gay pride reception, vows to overturn 'unjust laws'.  President Obama honored Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month with a White House reception Monday [6/29/2009] where he likened the struggle for gay rights with the struggle of African-Americans for civil rights.

Obama tells gay activists:  Trust me.  President Barack Obama's unprecedented White House celebration of the four-decades-long struggle of gay Americans for full equality hit all the right notes, including the host's acknowledgement that politicians' pretty words are no substitute for getting rid of discriminatory laws.  Standing beside a beaming first lady in the ornate East Room on Monday, Obama warmly welcomed more 250 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans "to your White House."

We show tolerance to 'gays' and get tyranny in return.  If I never again had to read or write a word about homosexuals, I would be very happy.  I really don't want to know what other people do in their bedrooms.  But these days they really, really want us all to know.  And, more important, they insist that we approve. No longer are we allowed to keep our thoughts to ourselves, while being polite and kind.  We are forced to say that we think homosexuality is a good thing, that homosexual couples are equal in all ways to heterosexual married couples.  Most emphatically, we are compelled to agree that homosexual couples are just as good at bringing up children as the children's own grandparents.  Better, in fact.

Gay Adoption:  The Real Agenda.  On Nov. 4, Arkansas voters approved a ban on adoption by unmarried couples.  The purpose of the ballot measure, according to the Family Council Action Committee, was "to blunt a homosexual agenda that's at work in other states and that will be at work in Arkansas unless we are proactive about doing something about it."  On Nov. 25, a court in Florida pointed out something that the FCAC and other anti-gay groups somehow manage to overlook:  Allowing gay couples to adopt is much less about protecting gays than protecting children.

How 25 Years of Gay Activism in Hollywood Has Paid Off:  If you're noticing your TV screen turning pink, it's not just your imagination.  The new broadcast TV season includes 22 series featuring a total of 35 openly gay characters, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).  GLAAD, which rides herd over all Hollywood scripts dealing with homosexuality, says the number of series with homosexual characters is a record.  These series are on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and the CW networks.  The total figure does not include shows on cable... .

Homosexuality and the Laws of Moral Physics.  It makes front page news when conservative elected officials are accused of selling-out to monolithic corporate lobbies like "Big Oil" or "Big Tobacco."  Yet the media rarely take notice when liberal politicians toe the line for extreme ideological special interests.  Case in point:  Within minutes after swearing in, President Obama had the White House web site updated to declare his unconditional support for every demand of the politically powerful and very well-funded homosexual lobby.

Same-sex adoption is an assault on the family.  When homosexuality was legalised back in 1967 did anyone dream that some four decades on a British grandmother and grandfather wanting to adopt their own grandchildren would be refused permission and the children adopted instead by two gay men?  The case in Edinburgh reported today, where precisely this grotesque development has occurred, illustrates the sickening way in which what started out as a decent attempt to be tolerant towards a minority lifestyle has turned into a totalitarian assault upon family life and human rights.

The Editor states the obvious...
That's why it is called a "slippery slope."

Episcopal diocese warms to gay unions.  The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia inched closer to blessing same-sex unions Saturday [1/24/2009] when delegates approved a resolution affirming "the inherent integrity and blessedness of committed Christian relationships between two adult persons." ... "I think we're going to open some doors we do not wish to open," said delegate Ann Davis from Louisa.  "A 30-something woman told me her understanding of monogamy means 'one at a time.'  There is nothing here about these relationships being 'lifelong.'"

The Bible, The Church, and Homosexuality.  Although the leading Christian churches in the United States continue to view homosexual behavior as outside the realm of appropriate Christian conduct, revisionist scholars within their respective communions continue a campaign to re-interpret or ignore biblical teaching regarding homosexuality.  Exposing the faulty reasoning behind the gay hermeneutic, this booklet demonstrates how homosexuality is unambiguously found wanting by Scripture and tradition.

Trans-gender rights bill passes House by one vote.  By a single vote, the New Hampshire House today [4/8/2009] reversed itself and passed a bill that bars discrimination on the basis of gender identity.  The proposal was dubbed the "bathroom bill" by its opponents.  The bill, House Bill 415, allows individuals to bring actions at the Human Rights Commission when they feel they have been discriminated against on the basis of their sexual identity, or the way they express it, such as with their clothing or makeup.

Obama:  Building a Monument to Tolerance on the Rubble of Religious Freedom.  No sooner had he finished speaking of his fellow Americans in his inaugural address as a people who "have chosen hope over fear [and] unity of purpose over conflict and discord" than his staff posted, on the White House Web site, a virtual declaration of war against those who oppose the demands for special rights and privileges by those who engage in homosexual behavior.

'Change' We Never Imagined.  On issues involving marriage, family and sexual morality, Obama's been even more brazen than some of his most ardent detractors could have expected.  Literally within minutes after he took the oath of office, the official White House webpage was updated — under the heading of "The Agenda: Civil Rights" — to detail his wholesale "support for the LGBT (homosexual activist) community."  His stated plans include the following:  Defeating all state and federal constitutional efforts to defend the millennia-old definition of natural marriage from attacks by "gay marriage" activists.

Homosexual Men Account for 65 Percent of Syphilis Cases, CDC Study Finds.  The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says homosexual men accounted for 65 percent of the nearly 12,000 cases of syphilis in the United States in 2007, making them the "primary driver" of increased syphilis rates overall.

Gays and Atheists Joined at the Lip.  It just seems to me that it's high time we began setting the record straight.  To begin with, there is no such thing as homophobia.  A phobia is defined as a fear or anxiety that exceeds normal proportions.  Concocting the word was simply a rather sly way of suggesting that it is heterosexuals who are deviant.  The other lie that is parroted with some frequency is that those who don't fully support the gay agenda are most likely latent homosexuals, which is supposed to suggest, I assume, that lurking inside every heterosexual man is an interior decorator screaming to get out and do something about those curtains.  Odd, isn't it, that you never hear about latent heterosexuals?

NJ rules against church group in gay rights case.  A church group that owns beachfront property discriminated against a lesbian couple by not allowing them to rent the locale for their civil union ceremony, a New Jersey department ruled Monday in a case that has become a flash point in the nation's gay rights battle.

Gay Rights, Gay Rage.  Before he was purged from the bench, former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore made a remarkable and lamentably unappreciated contribution to American jurisprudence.  Concurring in the 2002 case of Ex Parte H.H., a custody dispute involving a lesbian mother, Moore demonstrated that homosexuality had no protected status in the Anglo-American common-law tradition, that indeed such behavior had been proscribed for centuries as "a crime against nature," and that Alabama courts had consistently condemned homosexual acts as "illegal under the laws of this state and immoral in the eyes of most of its citizens."

Under the radar:  Gay-rights groups are quietly but aggressively advancing their agenda.  While the news media focused on immigration last week, California Democrats focused on completing the transmutation of public-school social science curricula into a punctuated series of pro-homosexuality tracts.

How 25 Years of Gay Activism in Hollywood Has Paid Off:  The new broadcast TV season includes 22 series featuring a total of 35 openly gay characters, according to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).  GLAAD, which rides herd over all Hollywood scripts dealing with homosexuality, says the number of series with homosexual characters is a record.  These series are on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and the CW networks.  The total figure does not include shows on cable, like The L Word on Showtime, or MTV's all-gay LOGO network.

Legislating Immorality.  Freedom of conscience, or diversity of belief, is the last thing the homosexual lobby will tolerate:  In New Mexico, a state civil-rights commission fined an evangelical wedding photographer $6,637 for politely declining to photograph a gay commitment ceremony.  In California, the state Supreme Court ruled unanimously against two San Diego fertility doctors who refused to give in-vitro fertilization to a lesbian owing to their religious beliefs, even though they had referred her to another doctor.  And just this week, evangelical dating site eHarmony, which hadn't previously provided same-sex matchmaking services, announced it had been browbeaten into doing so by New Jersey's Division on Civil Rights and the threat of litigation.

Mistrial declared in firefighters' gay-pride parade suit.  A judge declared a mistrial Monday in the case of four firefighters who claimed they were sexually harassed by their required appearance in last years's gay pride parade.  The jury of six men and six women was hopelessly deadlocked over the sexual harassment claim, the judge in the case said.

The Editor states the obvious...
First we we told to "tolerate" homosexuals, then we were expected to "accept" them, and now we are apparently required to endorse their deviant behavior and participate in its celebration.

Obama Sees Presidency As 'Bully Pulpit' for Full 'LGBT Equality'.  In an open letter posted on his presidential campaign Web site Thursday [2/28/2008], Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) expounds on the "promise of equality for all — a promise that extends to our gay brothers and sisters."  He said he'd use the "bully pulpit" of the presidency to press for a number of laws and policy changes backed by the homosexual community.

Three Dangerous Bills Threaten Religious Freedom.  The Employment Non-Discrimination Act is … designed to create special rights protections for those with sexual orientations different than heterosexuality.  The original bill contained language that included "gender identity," which is code for cross-dressers, transvestites and transsexuals (known as "transgenders" by radical sex activists).

Why Does Obama Hate Marriage?  Specifically Barack Obama wishes to pass "ENDA" the employment non-discrimination act.  Or so it's called.  What it really consists of is the most diabolical way ever conceived to punish every voice in America, who under present law, have every right, to speak to their houses of worship, family, and spouse as to the scientific, mental health, and diseased ridden drawbacks of engaging in homosexual behavior. ... ENDA would directly challenge and seek to limit religious expression, doctrine, theology, and practice.  Senator Barack Obama knows this, and supports it with all his might.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Even Think It.  Marine Gen. Peter Pace has violated a cardinal rule of our politically correct culture:  stating his opinion that homosexual behavior is immoral.  While some of his critics say they are upset he uttered his remarks in his official capacity, that's a mere sidebar.  Their real beef is with the content of his remarks, not in what capacity — official or personal — he made them.

Our Founding Fathers would applaud Gen. Pace.  Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, should be commended for speaking out against allowing homosexuals to serve in the military.  His views may have scandalized gay-rights activists and the media elite, but they reflect the convictions of those in the armed forces and a majority of the American public.  The Military Times reports that 59 percent of active-duty military subscriber respondents oppose allowing open homosexuals to serve in the military and less than a year ago a Gallup poll indicated that over 50 percent of Americans thought homosexuality was immoral.

The Secret Gay Network.  In a major new development confirming our theory that radical gay activists were behind the Mark Foley scandal, the mysterious source responsible for exposing Foley's behavior has been identified as an employee of the Human Rights Campaign.  This is the radical homosexual organization that functions as an adjunct of the national Democratic Party.

America's Culture War:  It is amazing that some schools are celebrating "Gay Awareness Week" each year.  It is amazing that many schools are establishing Homosexual/Lesbian Clubs. … It is amazing to see that saying anything negative about homosexuality is considered to be politically incorrect.  It is amazing to see the possibility of future laws that would prevent preachers from condemning homosexuality from the church pulpit, even though the Bible calls it an abomination.

Biblical message now criminalized.  A new Colorado law is helping homosexual activists achieve their goal of forcing Christians to teach biblical condemnation of homosexuality only behind the closed doors of their sanctuaries.  The as-yet untested state law promotes sexual identity "perception" to the level of skin color under state discrimination laws.

Guv strikes state's gender-specific restrooms.  With today's signature on SB200, Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, a Democrat, has eliminated gender-specific restrooms and locker rooms statewide, giving woman and girls reason to fear being confronted by predators, cross-dressers "or even a homosexual or heterosexual male," according to a critic.  The state's new "transgender nondiscrimination" bill makes it illegal to deny a person access to public accommodations, including restrooms and locker rooms, based on gender identity or the "perception" of gender identity.

New Transgender Policy Takes Effect at N.Y. Juvenile Jails.  Transgender youth in New York's juvenile detention centers are now allowed to wear whatever uniform they choose, be called by whatever name they want and ask for special housing under a new anti-discrimination policy drawing praise from advocacy groups.  "New York is way ahead of the curve," said Roberta Sklar, a spokeswoman for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.

Presbyterian leaders OK gay clergy.  Leaders of the Presbyterian Church (USA) overturned a long-standing ban on the ordination of gays and lesbians Friday [6/27/2008], providing yet the latest example of a religious denomination struggling with how, and whether, to incorporate homosexuality into church life.

The Editor asks...
Why didn't they do this 100 years ago?  What part of the Bible has changed in the last 100 years?

California Bill Would Force Public Schools to Honor 'Gay Hero'.  A conservative group is warning parents about a bill under consideration in the California Legislature that requires public schools to have an official "Gay Day."  AB 2567 requires Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to proclaim May 22 of each year as Harvey Milk Day, putting it on par with President's Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Pink arches?  McDonald's buys into homosexual agenda.  The founder of the American Family Association says the restaurant chain has turned its attention away from inexpensive food and toward a potentially costly political agenda.

Little by little:  Ted Kennedy continues to push for homosexual cause.  Senator Ted Kennedy tells Associated Press he expects an uphill battle in his quest to get 60 Senate votes in favor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, otherwise known as ENDA.  The bill, which passed the House last November, would ban alleged "workplace discrimination" against individuals based on their sexual orientation.  Oddly, the liberal senator has drawn fire from transsexuals and cross-dressers for not including additional special protections in the bill for people based on their "gender identity and expression."

When I Was a Boy, America Was a Better Place.  All employers in California are now prohibited by law from firing a man who has decided to cross-dress at work.  And needless to say, no fellow worker can say to that man, "Hey, Jack, why not wear the dress at home and men's clothes to work?"  An employer interviewing a prospective employee is not free to ask the most natural human questions:  Are you married?  Do you have a child?  How old are you?  Soon "How are you?" will be banned lest one discriminate on the basis of health.

House Passes Ban on Job Discrimination Against Gays.  The House on Wednesday [11/7/2007] approved the first federal ban on job discrimination against gays, lesbians and bisexuals.  Passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act came despite protests from some gay rights supporters that the bill does not protect transgender workers.  That term covers transsexuals, cross-dressers and others whose outward appearance does not match their gender at birth.

No Transgender Males Allowed in Girls' Bathrooms, Group Says.  Council lawmakers in Maryland's Montgomery County are considering a proposal to give transgendered people protected status under law, and a local citizen's group is pledging to try to stop it, contending that, among other things, it would allow transgender men to use showers, lockers, and restrooms used by women and girls.  Bill 23-07 would add "gender identity" to the county's existing non-discrimination laws, if passed by the Montgomery County Council….

Colorado Governor Signs She-Male Restroom Bill.  This bill makes all public accommodations — including public restrooms and locker rooms in the state — "gender free."  This law now means that anyone who identifies as the opposite sex, can freely access public facilities formerly reserved for a single sex.  Sexual predators can now enter women's restrooms and claim they have a sexual identity different from their birth sex.  It makes it legal for drag queens, cross-dressers and anyone else with a serious Gender Identity Disorder to use opposite sex restrooms and locker rooms.  But it goes further.  It defines "public accommodations" as including malls, restaurants, schools, and small businesses.

Gay Rights vs. Free Speech Rights?  U.C.L.A. Law professor Eugene Volokh discusses a free speech controversy over a ruling imposed under New Mexico's gay-rights law, which has been cited by ENDA supporters as an example of a growing consensus in favor of banning sexual orientation discrimination.  A photographer was ordered to pay $6,600 by the New Mexico Human Rights Commission for refusing to take pictures of a civil-commitment ceremony planned by a lesbian couple.

NM Human Rights Commission:  photographer discriminated.  The New Mexico Human Rights Commission says an Albuquerque photographer discriminated against a gay couple by refusing to photograph their commitment ceremony.  The photographer contends the ruling violates her right to freedom of religion.  Vanessa Willock filed a complaint with the commission in 2006, saying photographer Elaine Huguenin told her she photographed only traditional marriages.

So-called Hate Crimes Legislation Moving in the Senate Threatens Religious Freedom.  This bill strikes at the heart of free speech and freedom of religious expression.  Why?  Because statements critical concerning sexual orientation or sexual identity can be prosecuted — if those statements were part of the motivation of a person committing a crime against a homosexual, bisexual, cross-dresser or transsexual.  If a pastor speaks out against homosexuality and a church member commits a violent crime against a homosexual or transgender, the pastor's sermon can be considered as an inducement to the crime!  A pastor's sermon could be considered hate speech under this bill, punishable by imprisonment.

Three Dangerous Bills Threaten Religious Freedom.  [For example] The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act will create federally-protected minority status for individuals with a variety of sexual orientations, including cross-dressers, homosexuals and other sexually confused individuals.  It supposedly is meant to help local law enforcement officials deal with an alleged epidemic of hate crimes committed against sexual radicals, but FBI statistics show that there is no such epidemic.  In addition, this legislation begins to lay the legal foundation and framework to investigate, prosecute and persecute pastors, business owners, and anyone else whose actions are based upon and reflect the truths found in the Bible.

Minneapolis Police Suspend Christian Psychologist.  Pro-family groups are defending a psychologist who screens potential officers for the Minneapolis Police Department after he was suspended because of his past affiliation with an Illinois group that opposes special legal recognition for homosexuals.

The Minneapolis Thought Police:  If you're a Christian working for the City of Minneapolis, watch your step — your job may already be in jeopardy.  In what may be one of the most blatant acts of anti-Christian bigotry and discrimination by an American government agency, the Minneapolis Police Department has suspended a Police Psychologist, Dr. Michael Campion … at the behest of leftist activists.

Barney and Friends:  Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) introduced the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) yesterday [4/25/2007], which would make it illegal to fire, refuse to hire, or refuse to promote an employee based on his sexual orientation or "gender identity."

Democratic Candidates Say They're OK With Second-Grade Teacher Reading Gay Prince Fairy Tale.  A fairy tale about two princes falling in love sparked a backlash — and a lawsuit — against a teacher and a school last year when it was read to a second-grade class in Massachusetts.  But the three frontrunners in the Democratic presidential race suggested Wednesday night at their debate in New Hampshire that they'd support reading the controversial book to children as part of a school curriculum.

Metro Transit driver allowed to avoid buses with gay-themed ads.  A Metro Transit bus driver who objects on religious grounds is being allowed to abstain from driving buses that carry gay-themed ads.  Officials with the public transit system said they've made a reasonable accommodation to her beliefs.  But a union leader said the bus company is condoning intolerance, and that drivers were never before exempted from buses carrying other ads they found objectionable.

How Britain is turning Christianity into a crime:  How long will it be before Christianity becomes illegal in Britain?  This is no longer the utterly absurd and offensive question that on first blush it would appear to be.  An evangelical Christian campaigner, Stephen Green was arrested and charged last weekend with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.  So what was this behaviour?  Merely trying peacefully to hand out leaflets at a gay rally in Cardiff.  So what was printed on those leaflets that was so threatening, abusive or insulting that it attracted the full force of the law?  Why, none other than the majestic words of the 1611 King James Bible.

Ban on 'mom' and 'dad' considered — again.  A plan that has been launched in the California state Assembly — again — could be used to ban references to "mom" and "dad" in public schools statewide by prohibiting anything that would "reflect adversely" on the homosexual lifestyle choice.

'Mom,' 'Dad,' targeted by California bias ban.  A new plan approved by the California Legislature could be used to ban the words "dad" or "mom" in all public schools as being discriminatory against "partner 1" and "partner 2" in same-sex relationships, according to critics.

Taxpayers, Tourists Help Fund Homosexual Event in San Francisco.  If you pay taxes or stay at a hotel in the city/county of San Francisco, Calif., some of your money is going toward the homosexual "leather" event being held in the area this weekend.  That fact led a conservative activist to state that the festival's government and corporate sponsors have gotten into the "perversion business."

The Corporate Curtain.  America's corporations are under increasing pressure not only to accommodate homosexuality but to celebrate it and to punish employees who object.  Over the past two decades, hundreds of companies have adopted varying degrees of homosexual activism in their official policies.  As a result, a growing number of Christians have been disciplined or fired for resisting the trend.  Elizabeth Birch, former president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the largest homosexual pressure group, said in 2004 that she was happily surprised that corporations have become "the driving engine" of "gay" activism.

Ehrlich appointee fired over remark.  Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. fired one of his appointees to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority yesterday [6/15/2006] after the board member asserted on a local cable talk show that homosexuals lived a life of "sexual deviancy."

[Yes, these are the same people who insist on free speech and a "diversity of ideas" when promoting homosexuality.]

Gays have emerged as the new protected class in America.  The governor of Maryland fired one of his appointees to the Washington Metro transit authority board for stating a negative opinion of homosexuality on a cable TV talk show. … The governor, a Republican who is up for re-election and is trying to move from the right to the center, clearly hasn't thought the issue through.  He certainly seems to be banishing [Robert] Smith for a thought crime.

Deviant Speech Defined.  "The real issue here is the right of government employees to voice their religious convictions with impunity," William Donahue of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights says.  "Moreover, Robert Smith's remark is so innocuous that, up until recently, every sociology textbook on social problems listed homosexuality as deviant behavior."

Update:
Ehrlich Appoints Openly Gay Judge.  Gov. Robert Ehrlich has named an openly gay judge to serve on the Baltimore District Court. … The governor's appointment comes more than a week after he fired one of his appointees to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, Robert J. Smith, for saying on a talk show that homosexuals lived a life of "sexual deviancy."

Maryland's Thought Police:  It is not without irony that Robert J. Smith, a Catholic citizen of Maryland — the Catholic colony of the original 13 — has been punished by that state's Republican governor for exercising his right to freedom of speech and religion.

A law that turns sexual tolerance into tyranny.  Would anyone ever have imagined that one day it would become illegal in Britain to teach children to follow precepts laid down in the Bible? … That appears to be precisely what may happen as a result of new regulations soon to be introduced by the Government — and all under the rubric, would you believe, of producing a more tolerant and free society.

The Editor says...
We know now that mere tolerance is not enough.  Acceptance, endorsement and normalization of homosexuality is the goal.  Incrementalism only goes one direction.

The Ten Big Myths of Pro-'Gay' Beliefs:  Myth #3:  It's been proven that homosexuality is genetic… in fact, about 10% of the population is homosexual.  The reality is that no such evidence exists.  It's true that some groups have officially accepted homosexuality, but the fine print reveals that no studies or verification is ever cited to back this up.  It's more a popular trend and wishful thinking than a proven fact — kind of like believing the earth is flat.

Why Gays Can Not Be 'Pro-Choice':  There is a big "no-no" in America today — under no circumstances is a person who engages in homosexuality allowed to be 'pro-choice.'  It is of the utmost threat to the elite radicals that are guiding the homosexual agenda, and it is the fundamental issue on which the rest of the entire house of cards is built.

Gay Rights Advances Likely in Congress.  Wary conservative leaders, as well as gay-rights advocates, share a belief that at least two measures will win approval this year:  a hate-crimes bill that would cover offenses motivated by anti-gay bias, and a measure that would outlaw workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Gay condo controversy:  Developers across the country are drawing up plans for condo projects — and sometimes even whole communities — targeted at gay and lesbian buyers.  And Massachusetts is proving to be a fertile laboratory for this experiment.

New Hampshire inns prepare for civil union guests.  If the rainbow-painted deck chairs, fluttering rainbow flag and purple shutters don't make it clear, the Highlands Inn's toll-free number, 877-LES-B-INN, leaves no doubt as to whom this White Mountains resort caters to.

Gay demands shift from equality to special endorsement.  As the national argument continues to rage regarding the proper social and governmental response to homosexuality, some of the advocates for radical change have unobtrusively but unmistakably shifted their campaign from a request for equal treatment to an assertion of innate superiority.  They demand for gay impulses not the same treatment accorded to heterosexual desires, but far greater latitude and acceptance, along with uniquely privileged social sanction and legal endorsement.

Pentagon Changes Listing of Homosexuality as Mental Illness.  Pentagon guidelines that classified homosexuality as a mental disorder now put it among a list of conditions or "circumstances" that range from bed-wetting to fear of flying. … The revision came in response to criticism this year when it was discovered that the guidelines listed homosexuality alongside mental retardation and personality disorders.

Impressionable Kids and Homosexuality.  Can a society create more homosexuals?  The answer quite clearly is yes.  That is how current homosexuals, in fact, came to be.  There is no evidence — none — for a genetic origin for homosexuality.  That may come as a surprise to many people, but it's true.

Fifteen Frank Issues to Raise in Homosexual Diversity Training:  As a teacher or student, if you are forced to participate in "diversity" or "sensitivity" training, don't just sit there and let them spoonfeed twisted concepts through manipulative exercises and false information.  Raise your hand, bring up the following issues and expose the real nature of what is taking place:  they want to force people to accept homosexual behavior, even if some don't like it and the responsible facts don't support it.

New US church leader says homosexuality no sin.  Newly elected leader of the U.S. Episcopal Church Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said on Monday [6/19/2006] she believed homosexuality was no sin and homosexuals were created by God to love people of the same gender.

Pentagon Revises Homosexuality Document.  The Pentagon is revising a document that calls homosexuality a mental disorder, officials said Wednesday [6/28/2006].

Gays accused of discrimination in resort village.  Provincetown, New England's summer gay capital, is facing a rise in harassment and discrimination.  But this time it's straight people who say they are being ridiculed as "breeders" and "baby makers."

Gay community prepares for post-Katrina 'Decadence'.  The gay community plans to paint the town pink and green this weekend, just days after the ceremonies that marked the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Homosexuals Target State Races To Gain Political Power.  Homosexual activists are running for office at the state level in order to gain more political clout in imposing the homosexual agenda upon all Americans. USA Today reports that these efforts are being made to undercut efforts to pass laws banning same-sex marriage.  More than 353 homosexuals are already in office, including 61 state legislators and three members of the U.S. Congress.  This is up from 49 in 1991.

Macy's Removes Gay Pride Display.  Macy's department store has removed a window display marking Boston's gay pride week after a group that opposes gay marriage complained it was offensive.

CBS Runs GLAAD PSA On Soap Opera.  In spite of receiving more than 3,000 emails from TVC supporters … CBS ignored their concerns and ran its Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) public service announcement on "As The World Turns" on May 9 [2006].

Rev. Sheldon Speaks Out Against "Brokeback Mountain".  The homosexual/bisexual-themed film "Brokeback Mountain" is being showered with awards and has already earned eight Oscar nominations.  The politically-correct film is simply one more example of Hollywood's efforts to normalize homosexual behaviors and to vilify any one who criticizes homosexual behaviors.

Pick Your Nose, Not Your Gender.  Under a proposed [New York City] Board of Health rule, "people born in the city would be able to change the documented sex on their birth certificates." … The proposed rule isn't aimed at people who have had "sex-change surgery."  They are already permitted to do this.  Instead, it's directed at people who "had lived in their adopted gender for at least two years…."  Read those words carefully:  adopted and especially gender, instead of sex.

Entertainment as indoctrination.  So, why Brokeback Mountain?  For Hollywood's fashionable elite, promoting heterosexual promiscuity and marital infidelity is passé — those subjects are already prevalent in theater and TV entertainment.  Instead, for the past decade, the glitterati have been advocating for the normalization of gender disorientation pathology — the promotion of homosexual relationships as equivalent to those ordained by the laws of nature (not to mention every religion of the world).

Multiple partners fueling AIDS.  Instead of casual sexual encounters with multiple partners, established partnerships outside of marriage are fuelling a generalised epidemic in southern African countries.

Why is AIDS so special?  AIDS is one of the few diseases where personal behavior rather than medical research could save millions of lives.  At its most simple, stop fornicating.

AIDS:  The Questions They Won't Ask.  What have American taxpayers gotten for the $20 billion per year (and rising) government spending on HIV/AIDS?  What has happened to the more than half a billion condoms that the United States taxpayers have distributed to Third World countries during the past seven years…? Why do billions of dollars continue to flow to organizations and programs that have been a colossal failure by any yardstick?

The Myth of Heterosexual AIDS:  In this lucid and informative book, Michael Fumento explains the facts about the transmission of AIDS and exposes the tragedy of the campaign of misinformation which has surrounded this disease for decades.  Systematically debunking the myths about transmission and the travesty of the misuse of AIDS information, Michael Fumento demonstrates the harm that has come from keeping the American public from the truth about AIDS.

Goodbye AIDS.  Celebrities Move on to New Causes.  The red ribbons gave way to the pink ribbons, which were overtaken by the yellow wristbands — until light blue ribbons came along.  And they've all been shoved aside by the latest color to wash over Hollywood:  green. … As AIDS enters its 25th year, it is no longer The Cause among celebrities.

Board has plan to oust ROTC from S.F. schools.  The San Francisco Board of Education appears poised to kick the military's Junior ROTC programs out of the city's public schools, saying the Pentagon's refusal to allow openly gay service members is deplorable and not in line with the school district's anti-discrimination policy.

What's Up (or Down) with AIDS?  It's a testament to something – well – not good, that 19 years after I first started debunking the "we're all at risk" theory of HIV/AIDS there are still those who insist that contagious diseases must follow political ideologies.  And they're not shy about fabricating numbers to shoehorn them into the politically correct fit.

Talking with Liberals on Homosexuality:  Living in Massachusetts, I've had more than my share of opportunity to converse with liberals on issues of the day.  And I can confirm that quite a few liberals are complete blockheads with respect to issues surrounding homosexuality, steadfastly refusing to adhere to anything resembling logic.

Uninvited guests:  How hospitable should Christian campuses be to visitors who oppose their beliefs?

The Corporate Curtain.  America's corporations are under increasing pressure not only to accommodate homosexuality but to celebrate it and to punish employees who object.  Over the past two decades, hundreds of companies have adopted varying degrees of homosexual activism in their official policies.  As a result, a growing number of Christians have been disciplined or fired for resisting the trend.

"King And King" Promotes Perversion.  America's parents need to realize that homosexual activists are very serious about taking over our schools and brainwashing our children.  They want to indoctrinate our kids with the lie that homosexuality is normal and healthy, and that anyone (including their parents) who believes differently is a homophobic bigot.  If you want to get scared into action, check out the website of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network.  They conduct seminars promoting the teaching of homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten age.

There is more information about Homosexual indoctrination in schools on another page.

Extreme Bias Makeover:  In short, several psychiatrists are now pushing for racists and people who suffer from "homophobia" to be labeled mentally ill. … It may sound extreme, but this is the beginning of a process that has long been popular with tyrants.  In the Soviet Union, Christians were sent by the hundreds of thousands to mental institutions.  The state was officially atheist, so if you believe that there was a God, you were insane.  And it's still a wonderful tool for oppressors in places like China and North Korea.

Psychiatrists Ponder If 'Extreme Bias' Against Homosexuals Is Mental Illness.  In early December, 2005, the Washington Post published an article describing a number of psychiatrists and psychologists who believe that "extreme bias" against other races or homosexuals should be considered a mental illness and added to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders published by the American Psychiatric Association.

Homosexual Urban Legend:  One of the most persistent homosexual urban legends is the false claim that from 6 to 14 million children in the U.S. are being reared in homosexual households.

Proposed Gay Games Event Divides Town.  Among the items on the City Council's agenda seems a simple matter:  whether to give rowers a permit to have a boat race this summer on a small man-made lake.

Homosexuals Terrorize "Love Won Out" Conference In Boston.  Without a parade permit, activists yelled at conference attendees and used a sound truck to blare hateful messages to those attending.  Police stood by and did nothing to stop the illegal protest.

Vatican Reiterates Stance Against Homosexuals in the Priesthood.  The Vatican is toughening its stand against gay candidates for the priesthood, specifying in a new document that even men with "transitory homosexual tendencies must overcome their urges for at least three years before entering the clergy.

Episcopal Feud Over Gay Bishops Widens.  A Pennsylvania diocese that is the epicenter of conservative Episcopal dissent over gay bishops rejected the authority of the incoming head of the denomination Wednesday [6/28/2006] but stopped short of a full break with the Episcopal Church.

The Knock on the Door.  As a writer, I can't imagine anything more chilling than for the police to come to my door and tell me I'd better stop writing about certain issues.  As an American, I can't imagine a worse insult to my First Amendment rights.  But Robert Jason is a Canadian citizen, and he doesn't have to imagine a thing like that, because it really happened — to him.

Pastor Calls for a Boycott of Microsoft and HP.  A pastor on Monday [1/16/2006] called for a national boycott of Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and other companies that support a gay civil rights bill, saying the corporations have underestimated the power of religious consumers.

Why homosexuals should not adopt or teach children.  Today, I offer an answer to questions about why I am opposed to the idea of gays adopting or teaching children.  Several years ago, I began writing columns questioning the so-called gay rights movement.  I prefer to call it the "gay privileges" movement because gays are not presently deprived of anything that is rightfully theirs.

Martin Luther Queen, Jr.  Homosexuals on the campus of UNC-Wilmington cannot be said to be involved in a civil rights struggle comparable to what blacks faced in the sixties because these homosexuals are, quite simply, not involved in a civil rights struggle at all.  In fact, at my university, they enjoy special privileges that place their opponents in a position of struggling for civil rights.

Homosexuality is a choice, group contends.  An evangelical Christian pro-family group held a conference on homosexuality yesterday ]6/10/2006] in Silver Spring, emphasizing that homosexuals can choose to change their sexual preference and live as heterosexuals.

A Gay Easter?  Gay-rights groups make covert plans to crash the annual White House Easter egg roll.  For over a hundred years children have gathered on the South Lawn of the White House on the Monday after Easter to roll Easter eggs across the yard and meet the Easter Bunny.  Seemingly few (if any) Washingtonians have ever tried to exploit the annual White House Easter Egg Roll for political purposes.  Until now.  A church-based homosexual rights group is planning to crash the event with a "family visibility action" to spotlight their non-traditional families.

Languishing in foster care?  Catholic Charities in Boston just shut down its adoptions program rather than capitulate on the issue.  But the question is poorly posed.  Instead of asking whether gays should be foster parents, we should ask, what would be most helpful for foster children?

Arkansas Governor Seeks Gay-Foster-Parent Ban.  Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Friday [6/30/2006] he hopes the Legislature considers reimposing a ban on gay foster parents, struck down a day earlier by the state Supreme Court.  "I'm very disappointed that the court seems more interested in what's good for gay couples than what's good for children needing foster care," Huckabee said through his spokeswoman Alice Stewart.

Gay foster couple to be sentenced for abusing boys.  A gay couple found guilty of sexually abusing boys placed in their foster care have been sentenced to a total of 11 years in jail.

Excellent!
No such thing as "sexual orientation"?  The new issue of World includes an interview with Dr. Jeffrey Satinover, who has argued, against today's conventional wisdom, that the whole idea of a permanent "sexual orientation" is a fiction.  He also explains how homosexuality moved from mental disorder to civil-rights cause.  Overall, his work adds credibility to groups that help "homosexuals" to become heterosexual.

Gay Rights and Religious Liberty:  The true aim of this movement is, having accomplished the liberation of the homosexuals from any civil or legal harassment, is to compel the general society to accept homosexuality as a viable, acceptable, alternate lifestyle.  They will not rest until they have accomplished this goal.  They will accept nothing less than the utter annihilation of all cultural and social opposition to their perversions.  They are not content to carry out their abominations in the privacy of their bedchambers.  They insist on their right to flaunt them in our faces and compel us to acquiesce and say that it is good.

Homogenizing Homosexuality (Excerpt):  Using techniques that allow a tiny minority to gain power over a complacent majority, homosexual activists are leading Massachusetts (and America) down into a moral abyss.

Parting ways with the AIDS community:  If AIDS activists had their way, HIV-positive people who deliberately have unprotected sex with unwitting partners would never have to face criminal justice.  Jail would stigmatize those who are infected with the virus and discourage others from getting tested, they argue.

GLAAD's cast of characters:  The fall TV season is approaching, and predictably, the powerful lobbyists at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) are already demanding that Hollywood develop more positive gay characters.

The Gay Propaganda Machine:  In a blatant violation of journalistic ethics, Time magazine assigned a homosexual reporter, John Cloud, to write the recent Time cover story on homosexual teenagers but did not disclose his conflict of interest to its readers.

Is sexual identity malleable?  You see them at night in big cities:  men dressed up as women, complete with makeup, jewelry, and high heels.  Despite their best efforts, it's not a pretty sight.

Ex-homosexual threatened with death.  A homosexual activist website in San Diego has published a threatening message directed specifically at a prominent ex-homosexual and more generally against other Christians activists.

Lavender Revenge?  Ever since U.S. Special Counsel Scott Bloch tried last year to uphold the law regarding federal employees' civil rights by omitting a category never approved by Congress, the homosexual lobby has been working to discredit him.

Family advocates to Ford:  Stop funding 'gay' agenda.  Leaders of 42 pro-family groups have signed a letter asking Ford to honor what the activists see as a previous commitment to stop supporting homosexual advocacy efforts.

Indiana Governor's Memo Paves Way for Quotas for Homosexuals, Transvestites.  Indiana may soon begin hiring men in dresses in order to satisfy the governor's affirmative action plan.  That's a possibility because of an April 26, 2005, policy statement issued by Republican Gov. Mitchell E. Daniels Jr. … The practical effect may be that state agency executives cannot take into account anything regarding sexuality, including whether men wear dresses, makeup, high heels or other feminine garb, or act in an outrageously unorthodox manner. … It makes such behavior the problem of other employees, not the person flaunting his or her "lifestyle."

Judge Halts Pro-Homosexual Sex-Ed Class.  A group of parents took their opposition to the sex-ed courses to court last week, arguing that they depicted homosexuality as a natural and morally correct lifestyle and did not offer any contrary opinion.

Churches unite against gay laws.  Churches were on a collision course with the Government last night after the Archbishops of Canterbury and York backed their Roman Catholic counterpart by criticising new gay rights laws.  Dr. Rowan Williams and Dr John Sentamu, the two most senior figures in the Church of England, said in a joint letter to the Prime Minister that the consciences of Christians must not be trampled over.

No exemption from gay rights law.  Downing Street has said there will be no exemption from anti-discrimination laws for Catholic adoption agencies.  But Tony Blair said they would get 21 months to prepare for change, calling this a "sensible compromise".  Adoption agencies had warned they would close rather than place children with gay couples, saying that went against their beliefs.  The Catholic Church in England and Wales said it was "deeply disappointed" that no exemption had been offered.

Bill That Criminalizes Speaking Against Homosexuality Passes California State Assembly.  SB 1234, an expansion of California's "hate crimes" laws, has just passed the California State Assembly and now moves to the governor for his signature or veto.  SB 1234 could be interpreted by courts to make religious speech a crime if the "victim" considers it a threat.

Is Telling Lawyer Jokes a Hate Crime?  A few decades ago, the "gay rights" movement arose and demanded the right to practice the homosexual lifestyle.  "We do not ask you to approve or agree with us," they would say, "we only ask that you recognize our right to our practices."  But that isn't enough anymore.  Today, the "gay rights" movement demands that we not only accept their right to practice homosexual conduct, but also approve and affirm it as an acceptable lifestyle.  What's next?  Will their next step be to silence their critics by making criticism of homosexual conduct illegal?

In England:
Homophobia spies in the classroom.  Schools that fail to show enthusiasm in rooting out prejudice against homosexuals should be reported to the police by pupils and parents, a Home Office report recommended yesterday [12/27/2006].  It called for parents and children to identify schools that ignore "homophobic" language in the playground and teachers who produce "homophobic" lessons.

Police tell Christian couple their view on gays are 'close to a hate crime'.  Police questioned a retired couple for 80 minutes about their "homophobic" views after they asked their local council if they could display their Christian literature next to gay rights leaflets, it was reported last night [12/22/2005].  Joe and Helen Roberts said that police officers warned them that their actions "were close to a hate crime" after they complained to Wyre Borough Council about its gay rights policies.  The couple claimed that the police told them they were "walking on eggshells".

Billboard About Ex-Gays Generates News and Hate Mail.  The placement of a billboard in Rockville, Maryland, advocating that homosexuals can change has generated nationwide media interest as well as "lots of hate mail," said Regina Griggs, executive director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays, which placed the ad. … "I've been cussed out in every way possible from Colorado to San Diego," Griggs said.

Homosexual Orientation and the "Ten Percent" Myth.  The psychology behind the advancement of the myth of inherent vs. acquired sexual orientation is quite simple.  If a person is born homosexual, then he can claim that he has no choice in being created homosexual; in other words, he was, as the sodomites so shrilly claim, "born that way."  This allegation fails to explain why homosexuals commonly use the terms "alternative lifestyle" and "sexual preference," which both imply that sexual perverts choose their particular lifestyle.

The Media's Pro-Sodomite Bias:  You will never see a homosexual "bad guy" in the media.  This is because homosexuals have a very heavy influence in the media, and they know that it is absolutely vital to their cause to convince the public that their condition is genetic and not acquired.  It is also absolutely essential to ensure that no homosexual is ever depicted as having any character flaw or undesirable characteristic, so that the public will be lulled into believing, perhaps subliminally, that all homosexuals are sweet-natured, basically harmless folks who should be fully integrated into society without delay.

An Investigation of the Biblical Evidence Against Homosexuality.  Nothing less than "complete and total acceptance!"  This often is the answer given when homosexual activists are asked what they are seeking from the public in general.  Such activists equate acceptance with civil liberties and equality.  They believe that those individuals who do not accept the homosexual "lifestyle" are committing the unpardonable sin — the sin of intolerance.

Microsoft to Support Gay-Rights Bill.  In a turnaround Friday [5/6/2005], Microsoft Corp. chief executive Steve Ballmer said the company will support gay rights legislation.  Ballmer made the announcement in an e-mail to employees two weeks after gay rights activists accused the company of withdrawing its support for an anti-discrimination bill in its home state after an evangelical pastor threatened to launch a national boycott.

Cookie Company Refuses to Crumble Before Homosexual Agenda.  An Indiana bakery has pulled a large ad campaign from a trade magazine in response to the publication's decision to run a pro-homosexual editorial.

P&G Chairman Gives Thousands to Promote Homosexual Agenda.  A.G. Lafley, CEO of Procter & Gamble, recently gave $5,163 in P&G stock to help the homosexual community repeal a law in Cincinnati that prohibited giving special rights to homosexuals.  In addition to Lafley's personal contribution, P&G gave $30,000 corporate funds to help push the homosexual political agenda.

The Gay/PC Speech Police Strike Again.  A UNLV professor under fire for comments he made about homosexuals during a class lecture last year demanded Friday [2/4/2005] that the university stop threatening to punish him.  "I have done absolutely nothing wrong," said the professor, Hans Hoppe, a conservative libertarian economist with almost 20 years teaching experience at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Some see Red over Sox pitch for "Queer".  Kicking off the city's Gay Pride Week with a famous TV "Queer" tossing out the first ball at "family-friendly" Fenway Park has some accusing the team of unfairly pushing a social agenda on children.



"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"

Psychiatry falters, America sleeps.  Homosexuality cannot create a society or keep one going for very long.  It operates against the cohesive elements of society.  The sexes are driven in opposite directions, and no society can long endure when either the child is neglected or the sexes war with each other.  Those who reinforce the disintegrating elements in our society will get no thanks from future generations.

"Gay" Activists Target Salvation Army Bell Ringers.  A legal battle pitting homosexual activists against the Salvation Army has been churning in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area at the same time that Minneapolis-based Target Corporation's decision to ban Salvation Army bell ringers is making headlines.

It's Not Gay Video Attracting New Attention.  Christians want to get the message out about the destructive homosexual lifestyle.

Homosexual Urban Legends.  This informational service is designed to provide reporters, editors, and other opinion leaders with accurate information on the relationship between homosexuality and the molestation of children.  It will also expose and debunk dozens of factually inaccurate urban legends created by homosexual activist groups to promote their political and social agenda.

Homosexuals Molest Children at a Far Higher Rate than Heterosexuals.  Homosexuals account for only 1-2% of our population based on current surveys. ... In other words, at least 98-99% of our population is heterosexual in orientation.  Homosexual activists routinely claim that most child molesters are "heterosexual" males, thus shifting the focus away from their own very high rates of molestation.  Since 98-99% of the population is heterosexual, it is technically correct to say that most molestations are done by heterosexuals.  However, statistics indicate that homosexuals pose a far more serious threat to children than do heterosexuals.

The "Born Gay" Urban Legend:  One of the most persistent and culturally damaging Homosexual Urban Legends is the erroneous claim by homosexual activists that they are "born gay" or that their sexual orientation emerges in early adolescence and is fixed and unchangeable. ... Homosexuals have used this particular urban legend to fight for anti-discrimination laws and for "hate crime" laws that provide special legal protections for homosexuals not accorded to heterosexuals.

Exposed:  The fraudulent claim that homosexuals are victimized by an epidemic of hate crimes.  This Homosexual Urban Legend is used by homosexuals to lobby for state and federal hate crime laws that provide enhanced penalties for crimes committed against homosexuals.  These laws, in effect, make heterosexuals second class citizens under the law because they are not a protected class.  A person who assaults a homosexual will receive a stiffer penalty than a person who assaults a heterosexual for the same crime.

Author Calls Kinsey Film Propaganda for a Pervert.  A movie about controversial sex researcher Alfred Kinsey is opening this weekend [11/20/2004] across the United States.  Meanwhile, his leading critic claims the cover-up of the truth about Kinsey continues.  Dr. Judith Reisman is a researcher and author who been working for more than 20 years to debunk what she terms Dr. Alfred Kinsey's "junk science."  She has written a number of books that expose the facts about the doctor's so-called research and says the new film, Kinsey, is just the latest attempt to conceal the facts about the man who has been undeservedly touted and lionized as a pioneer in the exploration of human sexuality.

Promoting Kinsey, Censoring Grandma.  It isn't the acting, the directing, or the "production values" that are creating all the media buzz about this supposedly must-see "biopic."  No, the major media have been hyping this movie to the skies because of its subjects:  Kinsey himself and the "sexual revolution" that Kinsey was so instrumental in spawning.  Kinsey has become a sort of god for the sex cult that dominates the higher circles of our major cultural and educational institutions:  the media/entertainment cartel and academia.

The re-whitewashing of Alfred Kinsey.  It could not accurately be said that Kinsey's scientific methods were flawed, because such a characterization holds that his methods were in fact scientific.  Truth be known, they were so fraudulent that Kinsey could correctly be called one of the most successful snake oil salesmen in American history.

The Real "Hate Crime":  A "hate crime" amendment was inserted as an amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations Act 2004 (S.1382).  This bill would censor any discussion or debate about same-sex marriage or special rights, even teaching children the homosexual lifestyle is wrong and sinful would put you at risk of prosecution.  This amendment would even designate comments supporting traditional values and even parts of the Bible as "hate speech" — a crime punishable by fines and even jail!

Era of thought police has arrived.  I speak of the ever-growing scope of Canada's Human Rights Commissions and the damage they are doing to our fundamental right to freedom of expression. … The commissions have also been at work in censoring religious institutions.  The conservative Catholic magazine Catholic Digest and its editor, Father Alphonse de Valk, have been denounced to the commission for publishing official Catholic teaching regarding homosexuality.  These cases are still pending, but their outcome is predictable.  Unlike in a court of law, there is no presumption of innocence for the defendant, and the commissions have returned a verdict of guilty in virtually every hate speech case they have ever heard.

Free speech under attack.  Award-winning editorial cartoonist Bruce MacKinnon and his employer, the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, are as mainstream as Canadian journalism can get.  They are now the subject of a complaint filed with the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission.  Make no mistake, we are indeed crossing the Rubicon here.

Government to pastor:  Renounce your faith!  A Canadian human rights tribunal ordered a Christian pastor to renounce his faith and never again express moral opposition to homosexuality, according to a new report.  In a decision dated May 30 in the penalty phase of the quasi-judicial proceedings run by the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal, evangelical pastor Stephen Boisson was banned from expressing his biblical perspective of homosexuality and ordered to pay $5,000 for "damages for pain and suffering" as well as apologize to the activist who complained of being hurt.

Did God Make Me Gay?  People are not born gay.  Many people think there is a so-called gay gene.  Research has been done to find a genetic link to homosexuality, but actually some research has proved just the opposite — that homosexuality is not inborn.  Its causes are varied but often include childhood trauma such as sexual or emotional abuse, early exposure to pornography, unmet emotional needs, and a breakdown in the relationship with the same sex parent.

Philadelphia Chooses "Gays" Over God.  On October 10 Philadelphia police arrested 11 Christians for committing the "hate crime" and "riot" of singing hymns near a homosexual "Outfest."  The Christians have been charged with a laundry list of felonies, some of which carry prison penalties.  Described by Philadelphia authorities as members of a "criminal conspiracy," the Christians sang the hymns to protest — peacefully, nonviolently — a city-sanctioned "Coming Out Day" for homosexuals.

California Governor Signs Drag Queen/Hate Crime Law.  This new hate crime law will further imbed cross-dressing in California law, violate religious freedom, and punish those who criticize homosexuality.

Speak Now or Forever Face Criminal Charges.  As Americans are fighting the battle over the definition of marriage, the culture war is also raging on another homosexual front.  At stake is the religious freedom to proclaim Biblical truth about homosexual conduct — a freedom which legislative measures and court rulings are threatening to extinguish.  As a result of homosexual activists seeking to receive special treatment as a protected class, the United States is beginning to consider including "sexual orientation" for protection from hate crimes.  These "hate crime" bills could lead to criminalizing Biblical teachings that condemn homosexual conduct as a sin.

Much-Needed Honesty about Africa and AIDS:  The evidence is there for everyone to see:  We've tried awareness, condom distribution, economic development, and much more.  But the problem persists.  That's because the spread of AIDS is inevitably linked to the question of fallen human nature.  Things like fear, weakness, and temptation do not respond to technical expertise or incentives.  They only respond to "transcendent ideals and faiths" and the moral language they produce.

"Peeping" Is a "Sexual Orientation" in Canada, Judge Finds.  Pro-family leader worries that "hate crime" jurisdiction is being expanded.  In a decision unnoticed at the time in the United States, a Canadian judge declared in December [2003] that voyeurism, or being a "peeping tom," is a bona fide "sexual lifestyle" covered under Canada's "sexual orientation" portion of its "hate crime" law.

Hate Crimes:  Beyond Virtual Reality.  The author observes that (1) Hate crimes reached an eight-year low in the last reporting period (2002), (2) numerous factors contribute to an inaccurate impression of the prevalence of hate crimes against homosexuals, and (3) hate crimes against religious people are underreported.

Homosexuality:  Current Thinking & Biblical Guidelines.  Despite the fact that virtually all societies throughout history have condemned homosexuality, gay activists continue to make remarkable progress in convincing Americans, even Christians, to abandon efforts to resist their demands.  Recent incidents — including the popular claim that Christians who oppose homosexuality have fueled an atmosphere of hate against gays — suggest that even the most reasonable discussion of the issue may now be deemed bigoted by gay activists and their supporters.

The Bible, The Church, and Homosexuality:  Although the leading Christian churches in the United States continue to view homosexual behavior as outside the realm of appropriate Christian conduct, revisionist scholars within their respective communions continue a campaign to re-interpret or ignore biblical teaching regarding homosexuality.  Exposing the faulty reasoning behind the gay hermeneutic, this booklet demonstrates how homosexuality is unambiguously found wanting by Scripture and tradition.

There's nothing "gay" about gender-disorientation pathology.  This week, hordes of extroverted homosexuals congregated in Orlando at Disney's Pleasure Island for the annual exercise in societal entropy they call "Gay Days at Disney."  Fortunately, the gaudy and lurid displays of sexual deviance at Disney are not typical of the public etiquette maintained by most homosexuals.

Not Exactly What Walt Intended.  Regularly, AFA receives e-mails and letters asking why we continue the Disney boycott.  Besides Disney's production of movies with anti-family themes and publication of books that promote the homosexual lifestyle, one of the primary reasons is Disney's open-armed welcome of the annual "Gay Days" celebration, held each June.

Homosexual GOP group won't back Bush.  The nation's largest organization of homosexual Republicans has voted not to endorse President Bush, saying his push for a constitutional marriage amendment has led to "anger" and "disappointment" among its members.

The Log Cabin Just Burned Down.  If there was any doubt about whether the Log Cabin Republicans belong in the GOP's "big tent," it was resolved this week.  They don't.

Margaret Sanger:  Intellectual moron.  For months, readers have been asking me to do a profile of the life of Margaret Sanger, in order to expose the truth about an evil woman who has been protected for decades by the likes of Planned Parenthood, radical feminists, and various media elites.

Swedish "Hate Crimes" Law Could Target Christians; Senate Vote Raises U.S. Concern.  Pro-family advocates, noting the recent passage in the U.S. Senate of a bill that would include "sexual orientation" in hate-crime laws, fear that the criminalization of public opposition to homosexuality will also become a reality here in America.

It has already begun.
Swedish Pastor Sentenced to Month in Jail for Offending Homosexuals.  A Swedish court has sentenced Ake Green, a pastor belonging to the Pentecostal movement, to a month in prison, under a law against incitement, after he was found guilty of having offended homosexuals in a sermon.

CWA Commentary: Born That Way?  A woman who overcame homosexuality traces the beginnings of the lie to sex researcher Alfred Kinsey.

I Do Exist! — New Video Focuses on Ex-Homosexuals' Stories.  While organizations like the American Psychological Association are throwing their considerable weight behind the homosexual movement, a handful of notable members of the mental health field are countering with the truth about sexual orientation.

Philadelphia Phillies Hosting Another Pro-Homosexual Event:  Repent America director Michael Marcavage says "Gay Day" at the ballpark is just another example of how the homosexual agenda has infiltrated the country and gained more acceptance.  At last year's inaugural event, Phillies executives had Marcavage and his friends escorted from Veterans Stadium for holding up a banner proclaiming homosexuality as sinful and offering freedom through Christ.

Homosexuality:  Fact and Fiction.  "If homosexuality is neither a normal nor a healthy lifestyle — as I believe this article demonstrates — then the most loving thing we can do is to help homosexuals realize this and offer them our help and encouragement."

Thought Crime Becomes a Reality in Canada.  A number of aspects of the new law are profoundly disturbing.  For one thing, there already exists in Canadian law abundant protection of human rights, including protection against discrimination on grounds of "sexual orientation."  What is distinctive about the new law is the criminalization of negative criticism of homosexuality as such.

Survey Says Only 1% homosexual, not 10%.  Activists in Canada are disputing statistics from the government in Ottawa released yesterday [6/15/2004] that show just 1 percent of the nation's population identify themselves as homosexual.  The figures from the Canadian Community Health Survey also indicate 0.7 percent of Canadians said they were bisexual, the Canadian Press news service reported.

In-Depth Analysis of the Homosexual Lifestyle:  As the homosexual agenda grows increasingly hostile toward mainstream traditional values, it becomes imperative that we understand why homosexuality should not be encouraged or validated by the public policies of America.

It really is elementary:  Ex-gays exist.  This video is extremely informative, but therein lies its biggest problem.  The video simply tries to do too much.  Its primary point is simply that ex-gays exist — that change is possible for those who wish to do so — and it does present this effectively.  Despite these disappointments, however, this documentary is the best of its kind, simply by virtue of the fact that it's the only one of its kind.

Are We "Singling Out" Homosexuals?  [Former President] Carter said he believes homosexuality is a sin, although not as "serious" a sin as adultery.  It would seem Mr. Carter believes the best way to deal with sin in the church is to decide the level or severity of sin.  After establishing the sin quotient, you then tolerate or encourage the lesser sin.

MTV to Launch New Homosexual-Themed Channel.  On May 25, [2004,] MTV Networks announced the launching of a 24-hour cable television channel which will be specifically geared toward gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender viewers.  You may recall that MTV Networks, owned by Viacom, was responsible for producing the Janet Jackson Super Bowl halftime fiasco.

NYC to change ID rules for transgendered.  The city wants to make it easier for transgender New Yorkers to switch the sex listed on their birth certificate (sic) even without undergoing sex-change surgery, putting the city at the forefront of efforts to redefine gender.  Under present city rules, only people who can show proof of surgery qualify for getting a revised birth certificate.  Even then, the only change made is the elimination of any reference to gender on the document.

Senate Passes Homosexual "Hate Crimes" Bill.  One month after Canada passed a law potentially criminalizing biblical texts that denounce homosexuality, the United States Senate has passed a "hate crimes" bill, which may eventually be construed to criminalize biblical texts that denounce homosexuality.  Senators Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and Gordon Smith (R-OR) introduced this as an amendment to the Defense Authorization Act, making it more difficult for politicians to oppose.

 Follow-up   NOW: Transgendered People Need "Hate Crimes" Law.  Only days after the U.S. Senate passed "hate crimes" legislation offering special protections to homosexuals, the National Organization for Women is apparently appalled that the legislation did not also include transgendered people in the language of the legislation.

Is Ted Kennedy more interested in defending the U.S. or the gay rights agenda?  Knowing that President Bush would veto it as a stand-alone bill, Sen. Kennedy attached to the recently passed bill authorizing $150 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan an amendment he calls the Mathew Shepard Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007.

"Hate Speech" is Now Called "Harassment by Communication".  We've heard of laws in the Netherlands and Canada that penalize preachers for using the Bible to condemn homosexuality.  Now it's happening in America.  The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has added an amendment to its "hate-crimes" law that covers something called "harassment by communication."  Anthony Picarello, chief counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, said, "The wording is broad enough that it could be applied (to religious speakers), and that's something… that the people who crafted the language had in mind."

Homosexuality and Children:  There is much more to what is sometimes called "the homosexual agenda" than simply demands for anti-discrimination laws and health insurance benefits.  The Family Research Council believes that the pro-homosexual movement does have a significant impact on children — and that the impact is clearly harmful.

Lambda Defends Public Sodomy in Virginia.  The case involves a man who solicited sex in a store bathroom.

Do Homosexuals Have a "Right" to Others' Silence?  In the Bahamas, a crowd of Christians, led by their ministers, recently gathered to protest the arrival of a "gay cruise ship."  The crowd carried banners and chanted, "Gay ways are not God's ways."  One protester held her nose to show her disapproval.  Whether you agree with the type of protest, it is frightening to see how the U.S. Embassy reacted.

Do Christians "Obsess" about Homosexuality?  It's true that Christians may be disproportionately bothered by homosexuality.  But there are good reasons for that.  Homosexuality may be no more vile in God's eyes than pornography, adultery or any other sexual sin.  But as evil as those other sins are, their practitioners don't pose the overt threat to our society that the homosexual agenda does.

The Gay Gene:  Going, Going… Gone!  Many misconceptions exist about the supposedly inborn nature of complex behaviors such as homosexuality.  Most of these are due to media reports that present scientific studies in selective sound bites.  In reality, no scientific studies show an inborn cause for any such complex behaviors.

Activist Targets Children and Teens In New Book.  In a recently-released book that publisher Penguin Putnam says is for "children and teenagers," homosexual author Eric Marcus endlessly spouts homosexual propaganda, trashes religion and attempts to isolate children from parental authority.

Judge Allows Pro-Homosexual Children's Books In Library.  A storm of controversy over children's access to pro-homosexual materials led to the passage of a simple law in Wichita Falls, Texas, which would allow citizens to ask for such books to be shifted to an adult section of the public library.  A federal judge, however, who found that approach unreasonable, overturned the statute.

Temple Junior Dragged to Psych Ward After Dispute Over Blasphemous Play.  Officials at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, allegedly had student Michael A. Marcavage involuntarily committed to a state mental hospital after he initiated a Christian response to a blasphemous play performed on campus.

Compassionate Society Should Discourage Deadly Homosexual Behavior.  As with smoking, homosexual behavior's "second hand" effects threaten public health.

Protests Lead to Removal of "Diversity" Bumper Stickers.  What began with letters of protest from concerned citizens, and culminated with a protest by a veteran police officer, has resulted in a Michigan city reversing its decision to display its new logo on city vehicles.  The logo features a six-color rainbow — an exact reproduction of the official "gay pride" flag.

Mainstream Media Applaud Showtime's Perversion.  America Family Association is troubled by many of the nation's top print media outlets, after they issued glowing reviews for cable channel Showtime's "Queer As Folk," a new series about sex-obsessed homosexual men.

Principles Which Guide AFA's Opposition to the Homosexual Agenda:  [#4] We oppose the homosexual movement's efforts to convince our society that their behavior is normal because we fear the judgement of God on our nation.  [#5] The homosexual movement is a progressive outgrowth of the sexual revolution of the past 40 years and will lead to the normalization of even more deviant behavior.

Media recruiting less credibility.  Following the Pew Research Center's latest survey, which shows the public's continued distrust of the American media, one might think the press giants would be more careful about their public associations and agendas.  One would be wrong.

Hawaii Log Cabin Chapter Folds.  The Hawaiian chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans, a national homosexual political group, has disbanded because they don't think marriage rights should be given to homosexuals.

Dark Days at Disney World:  When the company fell on hard times in the 1980s, Roy Disney — Walt Disney's nephew — turned over leadership of the company to entertainment executive Michael Eisner, who brought Disney out of its doldrums and is now the company's largest individual stockholder.  Mr. Eisner incorporated his own agenda — one that is distinctly at odds with the family values image carefully nurtured by founder Walt Disney.

Four U.S. Companies Named Most Pro-Homosexual.  Four corporations - AT&T, IBM, Kodak and Avis - have been named as the most pro-homosexual companies in America, according to this month's OUT magazine.  The companies are among those rated highest in the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Corporate Equality Index, 2003 edition.  HRC is the largest homosexual pressure group in America.

Born or Bred?  Science does not support the claim that homosexuality is genetic.  Homosexual activists love to insist that "science" proves they're born that way … but they're not.

"Jesus Never Said Anything About Homosexuality, Did He?"  Scriptures reveal Jesus' clear intention for human sexuality.

Christians Fear Effects of Canada's New Hate Crimes Law.  Signed into law, the bill punishes speech critical of any "sexual orientation."

The Red-Blue Divide:  Powerful elites of the nation's mainline denominations — the bishops and clergy, as well as the denominational seminary faculty, headquarters and media staff — have engaged in a theological tug-of-war against the vast and significantly more conservative and orthodox members who fill church pews.  The main contentious issues?  Primarily homosexuality, with abortion and the war against terror running closely behind.

Homosexual Orwellian Newspeak:  Activist homosexuals have done an effective job of destroying the real meaning of "discrimination."  Every day you see the word "discrimination" in your local newspapers, mainstream magazines, and on television.  And every time this word is used in association with homosexual activism, it is used in a negative context.  We are being repeatedly told that it is wrong to "discriminate" against homosexuals who are typically compared to blacks as a persecuted minority.  Anyone who attempts to criticize homosexuals for their deviant sexual practices is compared to a member of the KKK, or a Neo-Nazi group.

Official says the Bible "exposes homosexuals to hatred".  Canadian tribunal rules paper can't run ad with critical scriptures.

Homosexual Parenting:  Placing Children at Risk.  The evidence demonstrates incontrovertibly that the homosexual lifestyle is inconsistent with the proper raising of children.  Homosexual relationships are characteristically unstable and are fundamentally incapable of providing children the security they need.  Bell and Weinberg, in their classic study of male and female homosexuality, found that 43 percent of white male homosexuals had sex with five hundred or more partners, with 28 percent having 1,000 or more sex partners.

They Want Your Children.  Young people are being encouraged to adopt the "gay" lifestyle, even as they are warned against the evils of smoking.

The Lavender Revolution:  In contemporary popular culture, any expression of opposition to homosexuality, no matter how temperate and intellectually sound, is immediately free-associated with violent bigotry.  Having defined the rules of engagement in America's Culture War, the homosexual "rights" movement is proceeding with its assault upon what remains of America's sexual morality.

Emasculating the Military:  The Legalized Homosexuality Edict.  President Clinton's decision to lift the ban on homosexuals in the military defies common sense.

Why Ask Presidential Candidates About Gays In The Military?  For some reason, the "gays in the military" issue seems to come up only in presidential elections.  However, the law that keeps gays out of the military comes from Congress, not the President or the military itself.

Unmentionable Vice Goes Mainstream:  Homosexuality's rapid rise from unmentionable vice to celebrated minority status is part of a campaign to subvert Judeo-Christian culture.

Rosie O'Donnell Becomes Poster Child For Homosexual Adoptions:  O'Donnell confesses that she deliberately kept her homosexuality a secret so she could then use her children to promote the homosexual adoption of children.

Science Does Not Support the Claim That Homosexuality Is Genetic.  Homosexual activists love to insist that "science" proves they're born that way… but they're not.  The debate over homosexual "marriage" often becomes focused on whether homosexuality is a learned behavior or a genetic trait.

Virginia Voters Outraged At George Allen's Support of Pro-Homosexual Legislation.  On June 15 [2004], Sen. George Allen (R-Virginia) horrified his constituents when he cast a vote against family values by adding "sexual orientation" to the Federal Hate Crimes Act.  Sen. Allen's support of the homosexual lobby directly contradicts his promise during his campaign for U.S. Senate in 2000 to oppose pro-homosexual legislation.



"We ought to be disturbed when judges circumvent the lawmaking process and assume the powers of legislating.  We also should be troubled by the ease with which these judges are willing to discard clear laws and legislative intent because it fails their perception of rationality.  Constitutional government is threatened when judges alter the definition of things and reinterpret duly approved laws in order to achieve their own policy preferences."

Homosexual Parenting Studies Are Flawed, Report Says:  Dozens of studies about kids raised by gay parents were mischaracterized for political reasons so as not to draw the ire of homosexual activists or encourage anti-gay rhetoric, a new report suggests.

The Bible and Homosexuality:  Until the Culture War began in earnest in the late 1960's, homosexuality was clearly seen as contrary to America's Christian culture.  Homosexual acts were illegal in all 50 states.  Churches were virtually unanimous in their condemnation of homosexuality as sin.  The medical and psychiatric communities debated whether homosexuality was a "mental" or "emotional" illness, but no one was openly promoting homosexuality as positive.

The Degrading of America:  What is happening to our cities?  The family structure is in a nose dive.  Living together has replaced the sanctity of marriage.  Illegitimacy has almost become the rule.  Sex has become a national pastime.  And, homosexuality is establishing its own distorted version of the family.

How Christians Can Talk to Homosexuals:  A former lesbian explains how to reach out to homosexual friends and family members.

11 Ways You Can Fight the Homosexual Agenda:  Stay involved. Resist the "gay" activist agenda and bring hope and healing to America's ailing culture.

11th Circuit Affirms Florida Law Forbidding Homosexual Adoptions:  The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says it "[does not] sit as a super legislature to award by judicial decree what was not achievable by political consensus."

Dance Mary, Dance.  The homosexual activists aren't so much concerned with respecting an individual's right to privacy, as they are with forcing social change.  If that means harassing the Vice President's daughter, so be it.  If it means undermining the standards and norms of a culture they never felt a part of, even better.

Just Say No to Sodomy.  The media frenzy in reporting the vents surrounding the Gianni Versace and Andrew Cunanan tragedy provide a grim reminder to us all that lurking behind the fairyland hype and propaganda promoting the homosexual agenda is a real world of pain, suffering, sexual exploitation, personal abuse, hatred, diseases and gruesome deaths.



The homosexual community has as its goals:
• The implementation of homosexual, bi-sexual, and transgendered curriculum at all levels of education.

• The lowering of the age of consent for homosexual and heterosexual sex.

• The legalization of homosexual marriages.

• Custody, adoption and foster care rights for homosexuals, lesbians, and transgendered people.

• The redefinition of family to include the full diversity of all family structures.

• Access to all programs of the Boy Scouts of America.

• Affirmative action for homosexuals.

• The inclusion of sex-change operations under a universal health care plan.*


SCOTUS Ruling in Sodomy Case:  A "Declaration of Secular Supremacy".  Both critics and supporters of Thursday's [6/26/2003] Supreme Court ruling legalizing homosexual sex appear to agree on one thing:  the decision holds the potential for far-reaching effects on the nation's culture.

Sodomy ruling, part II:  a liberal goldmine.  The Supreme Court's ruling in Lawrence v. Texas (the sodomy case) is a veritable gold mine for liberals and the shifting values they hold dear.

Trying to outrun Lawrence.  Dissenting in Lawrence, Justice Antonin Scalia warned that the decision "effectively decrees the end of all morals legislation."  It was a prediction the majority made no effort to refute.

Saw This One Coming.  Anyone who claims to be surprised by this case has not been paying attention to American law.  In Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court found that "consenting" adults had a right to privacy when it comes to sexual relations — any kind of sexual relations.  As Justice Scalia pointed out in his stinging dissent, the logic employed by the majority of the court could be applied to laws against "bigamy, same-sex marriage [and] adult incest."

Sodomy Decision is a "Battering Ram" in the Hands of Homosexual Activists.  Family values activist Gary Bauer calls the ruling a "disaster for the pro-family side of America's culture war."  He believes homosexual activists will use this decision to promote same-sex marriages — and that, he says, "will open the floodgates." … "I've argued repeatedly that if we have same-sex marriage, you cannot then constitutionally stop a man who wants to marry three women," he says.  "People say that's nuts — but legally, one follows the other."

The Three Stooges:  In the sodomy case, Kennedy and O'Connor proved themselves virtuosos of the non sequitur.  They agreed that sodomy laws "discriminate" against homosexuals as a "class" or "group."

The Twin Sisters of Hell freed by Supreme Court:  Abortion and sodomy are now unchained; the U.S. judicial system's assault on America is complete.

Supreme Sodomy:  Look how far this country has come.

Sons of Thunder:  "The nature of AIDS is to feast on promiscuity…. Southern Africa has no other means available to break the vicious cycle, except to change everyone's sexual behavior — and that isn't happening." (Time, February 12, 2001)

Sodomy ruling damages freedom:  President John Adams famously said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people."  In light of Adams' admonition, how should we view the Supreme Court's decision to strike down Texas's sodomy law?

Homosexual Lobbyist in White House?  If So, Who Is It?  Thanks to the controversy surrounding recent actions in the Republican Party, the issue of homosexuality appears to have moved to the front of the conservative, pro-family debate.  Long-time supporters of the GOP are asking:  Does my party really believe in traditional values? Or is it just lip service?

"Homosexuals-Can-Change" Research Published by APA:  While the American Psychological Association still officially rejects the possibility that homosexuals can change their sexual orientation, it surprisingly published a recent article presenting the opposite view.  Dr. Warren Throckmorton's article, "Initial Empirical and Clinical Findings Concerning the Change Process for Ex-Gays," examined previous studies of individuals who tried to leave the homosexual lifestyle and found that, for some homosexuals, change is certainly possible.  The article was published in the APA's Professional Psychology:  Research and Practice.

Homosexuality Is Key to Some College Scholarships:  Need money for college tuition?  A group of employees from telecommunications giant AT&T will help pay the bills of students who identify themselves as homosexuals.  Grades and extra-curricular activities don't count as much as sexual orientation for this type of financial help.

Would the feds arrest Mom & Pop America for hate crimes?:  Have we awakened to a different planet?  Does the new secretary of education, Rod Paige, know how serious this is?  Does John Ashcroft?  Or do all Americans now agree that homosexuality is just like heterosexuality?  Are critics of homosexuality all criminals?

Motorola seen promoting homosexuality:  "Homophobia" workshops and other activism are creating tension in the workplace, according to a Motorola engineer, who prefers not to be named.  He told WorldNetDaily there is a "quiet anger" among many non-homosexual employees who support the traditional definition of the family over the homosexual activism supported by corporate management "under the guise of ... diversity."

Homosexual Researchers Debunk "Born Gay" Urban Legend:  The "Born Gay" urban legend is actually being exposed as false by homosexual researchers themselves.  Homosexual researcher Dean Hamer, for example, notes that homosexuality is not "purely genetic…environmental factors play a role.

Zero Tolerance:  Tolerance has its limits.  Just ask Ron Greer — firefighter, pastor, and community activist.  When Mr. Greer criticized homosexuality, City Hall suspended him.  He couldn't even conduct a church event without being shouted down.  Today, he's engaged in a struggle for his own religious freedom and freedom of speech — a liberty that increasingly is coming under assault from the forces of "tolerance" nationwide.

"Gay Pride" Celebration at Justice Draws Fire:  The celebration of a homosexual pride event at the Justice Department on Wednesday [6/19/2002] is drawing fire from family groups, who oppose what they call "the use of taxpayer funds to sponsor an event that promotes sexual behavior."

Homosexual Propaganda Campaign By linking their opponents to Nazis and the KKK, militant homosexual activists plan on overhauling straight America.

California Lawmakers Advance Homosexual Rights Measure

Robert Knight:  Getting to the Truth About Moral Relativism.  "I don't just oppose the gay rights movement," he said simply, but with the conviction that makes his opponents increasingly reluctant to debate him.  "I oppose the whole destruction of the Judeo-Christian ethic in American society."

"[In Canada] if you read biblical verses about homosexuality on the air, you may be 'sowing the seeds for a climate of violence that could lead to a hate crime.'  That's the reasoning.  That's why hate crimes laws are geared to ultimately shutting down freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly.  They're not about enhancing criminal law because any criminal actions committed against either minorities or homosexuals are already illegal."

- Robert H. Knight, Culture and Family Institute. 

Cabinets Defy White House, Host "Gay Pride" Programs:  When President Bush refused to formally recognize Gay Pride Month earlier in June, Cabinet members and executive offices didn't take the hint and fall in step with the White House.  Instead of dropping their offices' homosexual-rights celebrations, they picked up where they left off last year, when then-President Bill Clinton openly endorsed Gay Pride Month.

Groundbreaking "gay-rights" bill stalled:  Critics say the law would require private religious employers to hire homosexuals.  The bill amends New York State's human rights law by adding "sexual orientation" to various non-discrimination statutes, including those that prevent "any employer" from discriminating against applicants based on sex, race, creed, nationality and other traditional criteria.  Neither current law nor the legislative proposal make an exception for faith-based employers.  Only private, religious schools are mentioned as having some form of exemption, but only in the admittance of students — not the hiring of teachers.

New Jersey Court rules transsexuals are handicapped:  In what may be a precedent-setting decision, a state appeals court ruled that discrimination against transsexuals is not allowed under state law and that transsexualism can be considered a handicap.

Salvation and homosexuality rock Presbyterian confab:  Pastor says, 'This is the end of the church as we know it'.

Mother's Day banned Private institution ditches holiday to avoid offending homosexuals.

Would 'Gay Rights' Bill Lead to Mother's Day Ban?  A family values group is challenging proposed "gay rights" legislation in Michigan, saying it may eventually be interpreted as grounds for banning Mother's Day celebrations.  Under the law, conservatives fear, Mother's Day might be construed as discriminatory against homosexual relationships.

"Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor [the] covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
