    Catholic Stand ^ | October 16, 2016 | Pete Socks
    Imagine for a moment that an innocent inquiry throws you into what amounts to a political firestorm. Your only purpose was to defend your Catholic faith. You meant no malice towards anyone. There was no personal agenda. The intent behind your inquiry and concern was merely to ensure that the teachings of the Church were being respected and upheld, not only for your child but for future children, as well. Then imagine that the very entity that you approach in this matter identifies themselves as Catholic and persecuted you for daring to question their authority. Concerned About SexEd Content This...
  • White House: Obama Finds Religious Freedom Laws ‘Unthinkable’

    President Barack Obama finds Indiana’s religious freedom law and others like it “unthinkable,” the White House said Wednesday. “I do think in the mind of the president, the thought that we would have state legislatures in the 21st century in the United States of America passing laws that would use religion to try to justify discriminating against people for who they love is unthinkable,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said. Critics say Indiana’s law now allows for businesses to discriminate against gays and lesbians.
  • LGBT adults better adjusted if they were ‘out’ in school

    Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have better self esteem and less depression as young adults if they were open about their sexual orientations as adolescents, a new study suggests. Attempts to hide sexual orientation are generally unsuccessful, and the result is more abuse and more depression, the authors say in the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry. What's needed, said Stephen Russell, the study’s lead author, are "supporting environments so that all kids can figure out and be as true to themselves as they can be.”
  • Kentucky proposal: Encounter a transgender person in the wrong restroom, sue for up to $2,500

    A proposal in the Kentucky legislature would require that transgender students avoid school restrooms, locker rooms and showers that don’t correspond with their sex assigned at birth. The Kentucky Student Privacy Act, sponsored by Republican state Sen. C.B. Embry, is also designed to punish school administrators who give transgender students access to school facilities designated for the opposite sex. “Parents have a reasonable expectation that schools will not allow minor children to be viewed in various states of undress by members of the opposite biological sex, nor allow minor children to view members of the opposite sex in various states...

    The National Review ^ | September 8, 2014 | John O’Sullivan
    German infantry at the Vistula River, 1916We are accustomed to thinking that such real-world physical experiences as war, defeat, and economic ruin produce such psychological, cultural, artistic, and social responses as disillusionment, frenzy (including frenzied enjoyments), and despair in the collective mind. The First World War — which, exactly 100 years later, we are now remembering, and whose lessons we are still pondering — seems to confirm and illustrate this belief. It was an event whose magnitude and impact we find hard to grasp even today. Though it began in the Balkans, it spread across the world to all continents...
  • "I'm with Putin" anti-gay posters put up by the National Front (Italian right, translation)

    "I'm with Putin." This is the manifesto signed by the National Front, with which the movement led by Adriano Tilgher underlines its full support to the Russian leader on three important topics: the "no" to military intervention in Syria, the homosexual propaganda and adoptions by of gay and "no" to the European Union, which does not consider a priority pipeline 'South Stream'. "Putin - supports Tilgher - has taken courageous positions against the gay lobby, which, by capillary action, tip almost to blame those who are not homosexual, and against the world's financial centers, they want the war in Syria....

    A group of Tennessee lawmakers is preparing to issue an ultimatum to the University of Tennessee-Knoxville – either defund the first-ever “Sex Week” or they will defund the university. Lawmakers, alumni, and taxpayers are furious that the university allocated nearly $20,000 to fund a week-long salute to sex that included a poetry-reading lesbian bondage expert, a campus-wide condom scavenger hunt and seminars on—among other things – oral sex and lesbian erotica. “We should be teaching these children what is important to learn so they can get jobs,” state Sen. Stacey Campfield told Fox News. “I don’t know what jobs they...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/12/2012 | J. Robert Smith
    The Washington Times reported on Sunday that two new studies indicate that children raised by gay parents might not benefit from the experience like kids raised by married mother-father parents. "The empirical claim that no notable differences exist must go," University of Texas sociology professor Mark Regnerus said in his study in Social Science Research. Regnerus's study involved 3,000 randomly selected young adults in the U.S. These young adults' lives were measured for "social, emotional, and relationship outcomes." The other new study challenges the widely accepted contention by the American Psychological Association that "[n]ot a single study has found children...

    Roland Martin’s call to attack men that liked a David Beckham ad has prompted the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation to demand that CNN fire the commentator. It all started with a tweet Martin sent after Beckham’s commercial aired during the Super Bowl : “If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him!”

    The Ninth Circuit has selected the panel that will hear the appeal of the ruling striking down California's Proposition 8, which provides that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California." The panel consists of Judges Stephen Reinhardt, Michael Hawkins, and N. Randy Smith. Judge Reinhardt is perhaps the most notoriously activist left-wing federal appeals court judge in the land. And, according to Ed Whelan, Judge Hawkins isn't too far behind. Judge Smith was appointed by President George W. Bush and has been on the Court since 2007.

    Ann Coulter doesn't mince words. And even when speaking to a gay conservative organization, GOProud, at their inaugural Homocon party on Saturday night, she apparently wasn't willing to start. After a series of jokes about conservative that sounded -- and were received -- more like a stand-up act then a political speech, Coulter told the assembled (and predominantly wealthy) conservative gay crowd why they should oppose same sex marriage, adding, "I should warn you: I've never failed to talk gays out of gay marriage." And then she did. First, she ran down the stereotypical stand-up comedian's list of reasons, including...

    he face of a young man in a baseball cap fills the screen at the center of a circle of 30 or so children. "It's Johnny!" they yell, meaning Johnny Weir, the "flamboyant," figure-skating Olympian.* The kids are part of an annual gathering of gender-variant and transgender kids—kids born boys who look and act like girls. Outside of this camp weekend, it's rare for them to hear "how great I think you all are … being true to yourselves," as Weir tells them. He says he loves the electric-blue spandex suit with the lime-green lightning bolt designed by one boy....

    San Francisco health officials reported an alarming increase in new syphilis cases last year after years of declines. New syphilis cases rose 55.8 percent in 2008 over the previous year, San Francisco public health officials reported. The increase was significantly lower than the dramatic spikes reported early in the decade, when new infections increased 167 percent from 2001 to 2002. But last year's rise would seem to indicate an increase in unsafe sexual practices, which could lead to a rise in HIV infection rates.

    SALT LAKE CITY — Gay rights activists are organizing a nationwide string of kissing demonstrations in response to the treatment of gay couples in Utah and Texas who tangled with security guards or police after kissing in public. The Great Nationwide Kiss-In is scheduled for Aug. 15. Events are planned for at least seven cities, including Boston, New York, Houston, Portland, Ore., and three California cities — Irvine, San Diego and San Francisco. A Web page and Facebook page promoting the demonstrations says more events are in the works. A pair of bloggers, David Badash, of New York, and David...

    A mass-kissing protest near the Mormon church temple Sunday drew a shouting match between gay activists and a group of faithful Mormons. For the second consecutive weekend, about 100 people gathered to stage a "kiss-in" to protest the treatment of two gay men cited for trespassing July 9 after they shared a kiss on the plaza owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Both gay and straight couples exchanged kisses during the protest. Demonstrators were greeted at the south entrance by a group of faithful Mormons carrying large signs that denounced homosexuality, prompting a heated verbal exchange....

Actress Marina Anderson, 56, said Carradine, who was found dead in his Bangkok hotel room after engaging in what is thought to be a botched sex game, routinely displayed ‘deviant sexual behaviour which was potentially deadly’. In papers from their 2003 divorce posted on an American website, Ms Anderson, says her refusal to engage in the games...

    by Gina L. DiorioThis really should come as no surprise. Just as gay marriage advocates argue that any two people who love each other should be allowed to marry, now a group in Maui, Hawaii is saying, hey, why stop at two? The World Polyamory Association, headed by the husband-wife team of Janet Kira Lessin and Sasha Lessin, is pushing for legal recognition of “triad” marriages. Of course, Janet and Sasha lead by example, having, uh, joined, with another “husband” – Shivaya, (see Threesome Marriages). Some might say this is crazy and argue it will never be accepted, but I’d...

    Opponents of gay marriage are celebrating an amendment to Connecticut’s gay marriage legislation that allows religious organizations to opt out of same-sex ceremonies. The provision is not unique, but goes further than those in Vermont and a handful of other states that recognize institutions that object to gay marriage. “It’s a gesture of respect,” National Organization for Marriage president Maggie Gallagher told POLITICO. “Even people who want same-sex marriage see that groups that want marriage to remain between husband and wife have a point.” On Wednesday, the Connecticut General Assembly became the fourth state legislature to legalize gay marriage. Gov....
