    Members of the ex-gay community will be on Capitol Hill Wednesday to lobby their congressional representatives for recognition of former homosexuals and federal protection from discrimination. Christopher Doyle, the president and co-founder of Voice of the Voiceless (VoV), the only anti-defamation league for former homosexuals and people who have unwanted same-sex attraction, told The Christian Post on Tuesday that the organization is demanding that every state recognize former homosexuals as a protected class. Doyle and VoV will also hold a rally and press conference at the Supreme Court Wednesday afternoon. "We want federal protection just as gays are given," Doyle...

    During the same month that U. S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy was issuing his opinion that the Defense of Marriage Act “humiliated tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples,” Russia’s House of Parliament voted unanimously to ban the adoption of Russian children by same-sex couples from abroad. The House also voted to forbid single people who are citizens or permanent residents of countries that allow same sex marriage to become adoptive parents or legal guardians of Russian children.Children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov vowed to do everything possible to “ensure that Russian orphans are only adopted...

Since 2007 Reykjavik and Moscow have been "sister cities".

    Gay people make up only 2 percent of the people in society. How did they end up having so much power, that they are able to impose their will on 98 percent of the population in America and other Western nations? I am aware that social conservatives are uncomfortable discussing genetic reasons, because it gives gay radicals an excuse to engage in sin. But acknowledging a genetic factor does not remove moral responsibility from gay people, and they remain under obligation to engage in Biblical sexual behavior. Gays will be put in the same situation as married men who are...

If he was ever involved in Jewish causes or the Jewish community, it’s not obvious. He worked on gay rights at the Justice Department, under radical extremist Tom Perez and he was a leader of the LGBT Policy Committee for the Obama campaign.

    Homophobic attacks have reached dangerous levels in sub-Saharan Africa and must stop, Amnesty International has said in a report. Governments are increasingly criminalising "homosexual acts" by seeking to impose new laws and draconian penalties, it adds. This sends the "toxic message" that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are criminals, the report says. Some of the continent's leaders say homosexuality is un-African. In 2011, the US and UK hinted that they could withdraw from countries which did not respect homosexual rights on the socially conservative continent. However, Amnesty said US religious groups "actively fund and promote homophobia in Africa", while...

    Homosexuals can try and twist the facts about the homosexual disorder and usher despicable disdain and hatred against religion all they like but that will not change the truth. Sexuality has an intrinsic meaning and direction which is not homosexual. The meaning and direction of sexuality is to bring about the union of man and woman, and in this way give humanity posterity, children, future. This is the determination internal to the essence of sexuality. Everything else is against sexuality's intrinsic meaning and direction. This is a point we need to hold firm, even if it is not pleasing to...

    In the case of the madness of transgenderism parading as civil rights, the entire societal structure is at stake. The eradication of sexual identity in the supposed interest of "equality" produces liminality, a disorientation and ambiguity preceding the collapse of society as new gods replace the God of Judaism and Christianity. The political and cultural changes demanded by the new gods involve the dissolution of social hierarchies, the trashing of tradition, and the complete disjointing of male/female relationships. In addition, they add total uncertainty when contemplating and planning for the future. Of course, the total confusion concerning identity may well...

    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. The policy statement and technical report — which updates a 2004 policy — is nonbinding but recommends that pediatricians create offices that are “teen-friendly and welcoming to all adolescents, regardless of sexual orientation...

    The headlines in the liberal media are gleefully trumpeting the demise of Exodus International, the leading icon of the ex-”gay” movement. “From ‘pray away the gay’ to acceptance,” chortles the L.A. Times. But this is not really a story about an organization, but only its leader, Alan Chambers, and his unfortunate capitulation to the world. I invite you to join me in prayer for him. Those of us “in the know” have over the past few years watched Alan slowly transform Exodus into his own private fiefdom, while at the same time he slowly gravitated inexorably away from recovery. By...

    Exodus International, the 37-year-old ministry devoted to helping people deal with unwanted same-sex attraction, is to be shut down. The Exodus board of directors unanimously voted to shut down the ministry after a year of prayer and dialogue, a press release states. Local groups that were affiliated with the ministry will continue, though they will no longer be under the umbrella of Exodus. "We're not negating the ways God used Exodus to positively affect thousands of people, but a new generation of Christians is looking for change – and they want to be heard," Exodus board member Tony Moore said...

    A notable Christian leader with same-sex attraction says that he holds "mixed feelings" about the recent shutting down of Exodus International and the apology issued to the LGBTQ community by its president. Christopher Yuan, pastor and author of Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son's Journey to God, A Broken Mother's Search for Hope, provided The Christian Post with a statement on Friday regarding the news. "I have never experienced reparative therapy, re-orientation counseling or Exodus support groups. I cannot speak personally about the effectiveness or harm of such methodologies," said Yuan. "However, I do know of Christ's atoning...

    In a first for the Disney Channel, next season an episode of Good Luck Charlie will feature a family with two moms. Producers are currently casting the couple, with production set for next week. The episode will air in early 2014 as part of Good Luck Charlie's final season. Because Good Luck Charlie is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in this one episode. In the storyline, parents Amy and Bob Duncan (Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer) set up a playdate for preschooler Charlie (Mia Talerico) and one of her new friends. When the...

    A new Pew opinion poll shows that a majority of Americans believe the redefinition of marriage is “inevitable.” We’ve heard “inevitable” language before, particularly from statists of all stripes. History is filled with supposedly “inevitable” causes that turned out not to be so. Nothing in life is inevitable except death and taxes—and at The Heritage Foundation we’re doing what we can about taxes. So, too, on marriage. Consider some facts about the polls that matter most: elections. Citizens have gone to the polls to vote about marriage in 35 states. The truth about marriage has prevailed 32 of those 35...
