    MANILA, Philippines - Same-sex marriage is impossible to be legalized in the country, Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. said yesterday. ďFrom the point of view of our culture, itís an impossibility for quite some time,Ē he told reporters. He said he does not see Congress approving a bill allowing same sex marriage because it is against the Filipinosí culture. ďThe law lives within the culture and not the other way around,Ē he said. In the same breath, Belmonte said he does not see efforts to have Congress pass a divorce bill succeeding. ďI donít think we are going into something like...

    Turns out there is a silver lining to five justices on the U.S. Supreme Court committing what amounts to cultural self-immolation last week ó it winnowed the crowded field of 2016 GOP presidential candidates considerably. After analyzing the historical demographics of the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, along with the overall environment on the ground, Iím confident we already know who can win here next February and who cannot.

    Many people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage in terms of whether they think these are good or bad policies. That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them. But there is a deeper and more long-lasting impact of these decisions that raise the question whether we are still living in America, where "we the people" are supposed to decide what kind of society we want, not have our betters impose their notions on us. The Constitution of the United States says that the...

    The U.S. Supreme Courtís decision Friday legalizing same-sex marriage across the country has confronted the Republican Party with a choice: to rally the base by continuing to fight, or take the loss and move on. Gay marriage is an issue where public support has grown with a speed unlike that seen on any other social question in modern history. Opposition remains strong, however, among religious and social conservatives. That segment of voters is crucial to the GOP coalition and a key to victory in some of the early-contest states, including Iowa, South Carolina and much of the rest of the...

    Last week at a LGBT Gay Pride reception in the East Room, Big Guy got a little taste of how many of us feel most of the time when he was repeatedly assaulted by a rude interloper:Itís not clear how Ms. Gutierrez, 29, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico living in Los Angeles, got into the gay pride reception in the East Room of the White House on Wednesday. All visitors to the White House face a background check by the Secret Service, which didnít respond to questions about the incident. Ė Washington TimesImagine the audacity!

    Nearly 60 years have passed since that wintry night in Iowa when three of rock and rollís biggest stars perished in the crash of a small plane, moving songwriter Don McLean to pen words that haunt listeners even now: ďThe day the music died.Ē Perhaps thereís a patriotic lyricist somewhere out there already pouring his or her heart into expressing a similar feeling of forlornness because something surely died yesterday, something of inherent significance in the turbulent history of this country that continues to insist itís ďone nation under God.Ē How can we make that claim while casting aside beliefs...

    Spiking the ball. Itís not Barack Obamaís style to win a victory with any sort of humility, you understand. Thatís not in his makeup. And thereís really little point in mentioning that he was ďopposedĒ to gay marriage as recently as 2012 when he announced his big evolution on the issue, because everyone knows he wasnít really opposed at all. He pretended to be until he sensed correctly that the politics of the country were changing and it was OK to admit he was for it - which he had been all along. Anyway, if youíre a Christian who is...

    Mike Huckabee: Conservatives Can Ignore Gay Marriage Ruling Like Lincoln Ignored Dred Scott By Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times June 27, 2015 DENVER ó Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee suggested Saturday that conservatives treat the Supreme Courtís gay marriage decision like Abraham Lincoln treated the high courtís pro-slavery ruling in Dred Scott: Ignore it. ďThey can do same thing that Abraham Lincoln did about the Dred Scott decision of 1857,Ē Mr. Huckabee said at the Western Conservative Summit. ďThe Dred Scott decision said that African-Americans were not fully human, that they need not be treated as fully human.Ē

    Sometimes, at a most solemn moment, a most irreverent thought shoots through the mind. When I heard that the US Supreme Court legalized gay marriage, my thought was "I wonder what the estate tax lawyers will make of it?" How about advising a terminally ill widowed grandma to marry her much-beloved granddaughter at the deathbed? Won't the estate pass to the surviving spouse intact? I'm not a lawyer, but I think it will -- without IRS getting the bite out of it as would happen now. And it would be very hard to have a sound legal argument against such...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is ready to rain on the parade of Texas citizens celebrating the Supreme Court decision on Friday to legalize same-sex marriage throughout the country. On Saturday, the 2016 Republican presidential candidate said he ďabsolutelyĒ believes that his stateís country clerks should deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples if they have a religious objection, in an interview with The Texas Tribune. ďOurs is a country that was built by men and women fleeing religious oppression,Ē Cruz told the newspaper, ďand you look at the foundation of this countryóit was to seek out a new land where anyone of...

    Have we considered the impact on the Military on this whole gay marriage thing. When will military family housing be open to LGBT couples? Will married LGBT couples be allowed to co-habitate in bachelor dorms or on deployment? Will straight males be forced to co-habitate with homosexual roommates? What if a straight male feels uncomfortable about it?

It is hard to overstate the significance of the Obergefell decision ó and the seriousness of the challenges it presents to orthodox Christians and other social conservatives. Voting Republican and other failed culture war strategies are not going to save us now. Discerning the meaning of the present moment requires sobriety, precisely because its radicalism requires of conservatives...

    Our nation, which was founded on the Laws of Nature and Nature's God has now fully apostatized and our doom is sure with the "Supreme" Court's legalization of sodomy marriage. O godless judges, leaders and nation, will you overthrow the Almighty and His ETERNAL absolutes of RIGHTEOUSNESS and design? O godless dreamers, are not your days but as a smoking flax and at the end of your vanity will you not give an account to the ETERNAL SUPREME JUDGE and CREATOR of the earth and ETERNITY (Acts 17:30-31, Phil 2:9-11, Rev. 20:11-15)! No nation has ever survived the embrace of...
