    This week on The David Rubenstein Show, retired Justice Kennedy finally admitted the real reason behind his Obergefell ruling, the 2015 Supreme Court decision that created a novel definition of marriage to give legal status to same-sex couples. Kennedy said, “It seemed to me just wrong that under the Constitution, over 100,000 adopted children of gay parents could not have their parents married. I just thought this was wrong.” Well, now we know. The justice’s reasoning had nothing to do with Constitutional principles. He had an emotional reaction and in his hubris he imposed his private feelings on the nation....
  • Taiwanese reject legalizing same-sex unions in referendum

    Voters in Taiwan passed a referendum asking that marriage be restricted to one man and one woman, a setback to LGBT couples hoping their island will be the first place in Asia to let same-sex couples share child custody and insurance benefits. The vote on Saturday, organized by Christian groups that make up about 5 percent of Taiwan’s population and advocates of the traditional Chinese family structure, goes against a May 2017 Constitutional Court ruling. Justices told legislators then to make same-sex marriage legal within two years, a first for Asia where religion and conservative governments normally keep the bans...

    A bridal magazine has announced it will close just months after it sparked outrage for refusing to feature same-sex weddings. Founders Luke and Carla Burrell, who are Christians, announced they would close White Magazine on Saturday after advertisers withdrew sponsorship. A farewell note published on White Magazine's website on Saturday said the couple had recently experienced 'a flood of judgement' and lost a number of advertisers. The Burrells became target of an intimidation campaign in which their staff were threatened and one individual warned their house would be burned down. 'We have had to recognise the reality that White Magazine...

    An Episcopal bishop in Albany, New York, has issued a directive banning same-sex marriages in his diocese, saying the church has been “hijacked by the ‘Gay Rights Agenda.’” The Rev. William Love says in a pastoral letter that Scripture describes same-sex relationships as “sinful.” He also says that “Satan is having a heyday bringing division into the church.” His directive Saturday comes three weeks before a resolution allowing same-sex marriages in Episcopal churches nationwide goes into effect. …
  • Belfast bakery did not discriminate in gay cake case, UK's top court rules [Northern Ireland]

    Britain’s highest court on Wednesday said a Northern Irish bakery’s refusal to make a cake bearing a pro-gay slogan was not discriminatory in a ruling condemned by the customer, a gay rights activist, but hailed by the province’s main conservative party. Ashers Baking in Belfast was found guilty of discrimination in 2015 for refusing to make a cake for a customer iced with the words “Support Gay Marriage” because of the owners’ Christian beliefs. It failed in an appeal to the local courts in 2016; but the Supreme Court, the UK’s highest judicial body, overturned that decision on Wednesday, saying...

    The Trump administration discontinued an Obama-era policy this week that granted diplomatic visas to the domestic partners of foreign diplomats to the United States, regardless of whether they are same-sex or opposite-sex. Instead, now that same-sex marriage is legal in the United States, the State Department will require those diplomats to marry in order for their partners to be eligible for diplomatic visas. Democrats, LGBT rights organizations, and the news media immediately framed the decision as an attack on gay people, bandying headlines such as, “Trump Administration Will No Longer Grant Visas to Same-Sex Partners of Diplomats.” The Human Rights...

    A referendum to establish a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in Romania has failed - after only a fifth of voters bothered to turn out. Romanians were being asked whether they wanted the constitution changed to specify that marriage can only be between a man and a woman. But just 20.4% of eligible voters cast ballots - short of the 30% needed. The result may come as a suprise, as a poll on Friday indicated support for the change was as high as 90%. Mihai Gheorghiu, president of the pro-referendum Coalition for Family, told the BBC ahead of the vote...

    Gay bar owner and novelist Alex Andronic fears a referendum this weekend in Romania that aims to prevent same sex couples ever securing the right to marry not only darkens his future, it will also stir an intolerable level of hate and discrimination. Romania does not allow marriage or civil partnerships for same sex couples. Nonetheless, the country will vote on whether to narrow the constitutional definition of marriage from a union of spouses to one between a man and a woman. The referendum, which needs a 30 percent turnout rate was brought by a civil society group called the...

    he United Methodist Church's African bishops have recently reaffirmed their support for the traditional definition of marriage, as well as opposition over possible schism within the denomination. The UMC Africa College of Bishops released a statement Monday stemming from their official meeting held Sept. 3-7 in Freetown, Sierra Leone. According to their statement, the bishops held extensive discussions regarding the denomination's debate over homosexuality, which many believe may lead to the UMC splitting. "... we reaffirm our position as traditionalists and view marriage as union between Man and Woman as clearly defined in scripture and affirmed in our COB 2016...

    A number of U.S. multinational companies, including Coca-Cola, IBM, and Citi, have signed onto an open letter that calls on the British Government to legalize homosexual “marriage” in Northern Ireland. The companies claim this is necessary “to attract the best talent to Northern Ireland” and because the multinationals want LGBT employees “to be themselves.” The open letter was created by Amnesty International and it is headlined “Businesses for Love Equality,” and has the Twitter hashtag #Businesses4LoveEquality. […] Some of the U.S.-based multinationals that signed the letter include Coca-Cola, IBM, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Citi, Allstate Northern Ireland, Santander Bank, and Baker...

    Scott Morrison, the Australian treasurer who on Friday became his country's newest prime minister, is reported to be an evangelical Christian who voted against gay marriage. Morrison won an internal ballot, 45-40, in the Liberal party, forcing moderate Malcolm Turnbull out amid political turmoil in the country. He attends Horizon Church, a Pentecostal megachurch in Sutherland, and lists "church" as one of his interests. Nick Bryant, a journalist and expert on Australian politics, told CNN that Morrison met his future wife, Jenny, at church when he was 12 years old. Their current church is said to have close ties to...

    The draft of Cuba’s new constitution opens the path to same-sex marriage, a government official said on Saturday, which would make the country that once persecuted homosexuals an unlikely leader in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. In the early years of Fidel Castro’s 1959 revolution, many homosexuals were sent to correctional labor camps, part of an institutionalized homophobia for which Castro later apologized. Yet Communist-run Cuba has made great strides over the past decade on LGBT rights, approving sex-change operations and banning workplace discrimination, partly thanks to the high-profile advocacy of Castro’s niece Mariela Castro. Proposals to recognize same-sex...

    Speaking of his faith, Mr. Carter said in his career as a politician he never ran across "any really serious conflicts between my political obligations and my religious faith." Asked about gay marriage, he replied that it is "no problem with me. I think everybody should have a right to get married regardless of their sex." Regarding whether he thinks Jesus would approve of gay marriage, Carter replied "I don’t have any verse in Scripture," but added, "I believe that Jesus would approve of gay marriage." "I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere...

    The DC Universe recently was making news headlines because after half of century of costumed foreplay, Bruce Wayne proposed to Selina Kyle and the two were supposed to get married… but you know, it’s Batman, so things didn’t quite turn out as planned. Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe is now making headlines for a proposal and a wedding, but mainly because it’s a lesbian relationship being depicted on a kid’s show. As is standard with most Leftist agendas, the news was made to trend on social media and was quickly picked up by most Left-leaning media outlets. The event unraveled in...

    It’s a floor wax AND a dessert topping!* The Supreme Court left its most anticipated decisions for another day in a brief session today, but the real action came with the orders from the court. After overturning a Colorado action against a Christian baker in Masterpiece Cakeshop, the court declined an opportunity to address the same issue directly with Arlene’s Flowers — but they did overturn the extant ruling against Barronelle Stutzman. The order sends the case back to court, with direction to consider Masterpiece Cakeshop in a new trial: The U.S. Supreme Court Monday granted the appeal of...

    Christian baker Jack Phillips told The Christian Post on Thursday that his Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, has seen three times more customers come into the shop since the Court decision. "We have had so many people coming by to support us as the case has gone on, and there has been an outpouring of love and support since the decision came down. The state's targeting of my beliefs cost me 40 percent of my business and forced me from 10 employees down to four. But we're so happy to be busy doing what we do best at our shop,"...

    DEVON, England, June 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) -- Another royal wedding is about to dominate the media, albeit for a very different reason than Prince Harry and Meagan Markle’s recent nuptials. Lord Ivar Mountbatten, third cousin once removed to Queen Elizabeth, has announced he will be “marrying” James Coyle, marking the first same-sex “wedding” in the extended British royal family. Ivar came out as homosexual in 2016, several years after divorcing his wife Penny Mountbatten. The couple had three daughters, who are currently 15, 20, and 22 years old. But despite their divorce, Penny told the UK Daily Mail she’s so...

    The CEO of Twitter says he was wrong to enjoy a Chick-fil-A meal, telling commenters on social media that he had forgotten about "their background," referring to the Christian beliefs of the company's owners. Jack Dorsey, the CEO of the social media giant tweeted a screenshot from his phone showing that he had bought something at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. Following a backlash, he claimed to have made a mistake on Sunday. Erica Baker, senior engineering manager at Patreon, was perturbed at Dorsey, telling him to either delete his Chick-fil-A tweet "or follow up with how much free advertising...
