    Most people don’t know that major corporations in America are funding the massive push to introduce homosexuality and transgenderism into the elementary school grades, pass laws across the country to criminalize Christian belief in the workplace, force “gay marriage” through the federal courts, viciously harass pro-family groups, and much more. They're companies you likely buy from. This is what the average parent and citizen is up against. It’s time to say: We’re not taking it any longer. At the center of this effort is the world’s largest and wealthiest LGBT advocacy group, the (Orwellian-named) Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Based in...

    In the immediate aftermath of the multiple explosions that rocked the Copley Square area of Boston during this afternoon’s marathon, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof took to Twitter to say that the tragic events are a “reminder” of how Senate Republicans blocked the appointment of a new director for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). “[E]xplosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment,” he tweeted with a link to a Washington Post article on the Senate GOP’s threats to put a hold on President Obama‘s nomination for a...

    After a woman was struck and killed by a train in Boston’s Downton Crossing station late Thursday, the man captured by surveillance cameras above apparently took advantage of the situation, sliding his foot over the deceased woman’s phone, the Daily Mail reported. According to police, the woman’s phone flew out of her purse as she was struck. “Ninety-nine percent of all of the other people were concerned about what happened, running to the end of the train to see if they could help,” said Lt. Richard Sullivan told Boston Globe. “This gentleman had a different idea.” As surveillance video shows, the man looks...

But that unplanned juxtaposition couldn't have illustrated more vividly the emotional extremes we resort to when it comes to political figures.A newcomer watching the local TV news broadcasts in Boston early Monday morning might reasonably have concluded that the former mayor had been a hero of mythic proportions, a saint and a superstar whose goodness...

Phillipos was accused of lying about being in Tsarnaev’s dorm room three days after the bombing, when two other friends removed a backpack containing fireworks and other potential evidence, including a laptop. Phillipos' lawyers argued he couldn’t clearly remember what happened because he had smoked marijuana heavily that day.

The researchers from Tufts University, Harvard University and Boston Children's Hospital wrote that their plan would surely meet strong opposition from both the food and restaurant industries but that it could help people make meaningful dietary changes and substantially reduce health care costs.

Whereas the pro-Israel supporters were mainly university students, the anti-Israel crowd was largely female, and older, accompanied by a dozen children holding signs and helping chant about “Israeli apartheid” and “war crimes.” Post-rally, the...

    Massachusetts now forced into border spat It’s finally been confirmed what was suspected all along — Massachusetts is feeling the pain of the chaotic border crisis. Forget the denials.

We’ve learned from immigration officials that four planes filled with detainees ... as the U.S. scrambles to cap the immigration crisis. .... This should alarm everybody in the Bay State, because we don’t know how many illegals are passing through or hanging around; what communicable diseases they may carry; if any are sex offenders, drug-runners, gang members...

    The train traveled overnight, carrying him from his roots to his calling. This was not a trip Babe Ruth planned, expected or even hoped to make. He was comfortable in his native Baltimore, still in awe of his surroundings after his exodus from an orphanage and reform school, still content pitching and pounding out home runs for a first-place Orioles team in the International League. But that team was sagging in attendance and bleeding money, and it had shipped three of its better assets -- Ruth, Ben Egan and Ernie Shore -- to the American League, to Boston, to recoup...
  • Somerville Teacher Accused Of Having Sexual Relationship With 13-Year-Old

    SOMERVILLE (CBS) – A Somerville teacher has been arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old child. Alexandra Romanos, 41, of Stoneham, was arraigned Wednesday on two counts of aggravated rape of a child, and three counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. According to the DA’s office, a parent tipped off the school department last month about the teacher’s alleged relationship with a 13-year-old, which had been ongoing since March and had occurred both on and off school grounds. Romanos taught 5th graders at the East Somerville Community School, and has worked there for seven years....

    Boston researchers have successfully regrown human corneal tissue—a feat that could potentially restore vision in the blind. The achievement also marks one of the first times that scientists have constructed tissue using adult-derived human stem cells. In a new study published in the journal Nature, researchers from Massachusetts Eye and Ear Institute, Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the VA Boston Healthcare System detailed their groundbreaking research. According to the paper, the key to the study’s success revolves around a molecule known as ABCB5, which serves as a biomarker for previously elusive limbal stem cells. Residing in the...
  • FRANCISCANS PARTICIPATE IN PRIDE FESTIVAL--- ARCHDIOCESE EVADES RESPONSIBILITY

    06/25/2014 9:21:22 AM PDT · by BlatherNaut · 33 replies
    The Franciscan Friars of Boston's Saint Anthony's Shrine---members of the same religious family as our Capuchin Cardinal Sean O'Malley---manned a so-called information booth at the city's homosexual Pride Festival on City Hall Plaza on Saturday, June 14th. The booth featured banners, buttons and t-shirts emblazoned with the words: "Who am I to judge?" There was nothing evident which suggested traditional Catholic teaching about the mortally sinful, soul endangering character of homosexual relations, which The Catechism of the Catholic Church, promulgated by Pope Saint John Paul II in 1984, described as "grave depravity." When contacted by concerned Catholics, Franciscans assured callers...

    (CNN) -- Dozens of concertgoers were hospitalized during a show by superstar DJ Avicii in Boston on Wednesday night, CNN affiliates reported.

All of the patients are being evaluated, said Kory Zhao, a hospital public affairs officer. Most patients had a problem with dehydration, drugs and alcohol, authorities told CNN affiliate WHDH.
  • "Gay Pride Week" in Boston reveals what the media doesn't tell you about the homosexual movement.

    Most people only see the filtered version of "gayness" that the mainstream media presents, which portrays it as wholesome, joyous, and even healthy. But the public spectacle of a "Gay Pride Week" (June 6-14) in a major city like Boston reveals a great deal about the pathologies, addictions, perversions, and general dysfunction surrounding homosexual behavior that is generally kept hidden. Make no mistake: "Gay Pride" is vastly different than the South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade, or the Puerto Rican Parade -- or anything else you'll see in the public streets. It's not really about "fun" or even politics. It's...

  • (MA)House approves $11 minimum wage bill

    Many Massachusetts workers could see a little more money in their paychecks as early as next year. Last week, the Massachusetts Senate agreed to raise the minimum wage to $11.00 per hour and on Wednesday, the House of Representatives agreed. The vote means that Massachusetts will be one step closer to having the highest statewide minimum wage in the country. Under the bill, the minimum wage would be increased over three years, with no tie to inflation. Although the Senate gave their approval last week, not all House members agree it’s a good idea. “This minimum wage was never intended...
