  • Why Republicans Could Have A Pro-Gay Marriage Presidential Candidate In 2016 ZOT!

    The Daily Caller ^ | 2014-10-14 | Alex Lundry
    The Supreme Court’s recent decision not to take up challenges to state amendments banning same-sex marriage has had two significant effects – it has expanded marriage to 30 states and reignited the political conversation around marriage equality in the 2014 midterms. Since 2011, I have worked with Project Right Side to help Republican leaders navigate a radically changing electorate on the freedom to marry. While public acceptance of marriage equality has steadily increased, this moment may ultimately be looked upon as the point where Republican opposition to marriage equality began to fall in earnest. According to a recent poll of...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee threatened to leave the GOP and run for the White House in 2016 as an independent if Republicans “capitulate” and support same-sex marriage. “If the Republicans want to lose guys like me, and a whole bunch of still God-fearing, Bible-believing people, go ahead and just abdicate on this issue—and go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either,” Huckabee told Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, on Wildmon’s “Today’s Issues” radio show. “Because at that point, you lose me; I’m gone.” “I’ll become an independent,” he vowed in an interview on Tuesday. “I’ll start...

    So much for that moderate Islam. (via Religion of Peace) South Africa’s controversial first gay-friendly mosque, which also allows Christian worshippers and women to lead prayers, was damaged by a fire overnight, its founder and the police said Saturday. I’m not sure how this even qualifies as a mosque if there are Christians leading prayers. Clearly a lot of Muslims felt the same way. The mosque has faced fierce criticism and threats of violence from Muslims with 14 national and provincial organizations representing the Muslim community across South Africa issuing a joint statement condemning Hargey’s plans.According to an AFP report,...

    I wish Pew had provided older numbers to use as a yardstick here. Can’t tell if this has been fairly constant for a few years now or if opinion is starting to move towards gays on public accommodations as well. The fact that more people support compulsion in the name of antidiscrimination than the right of the business owner to refuse for reasons of conscience is newsy, though. Say, wasn’t there another splashy poll by a famous pollster on this subject last year? Yep, sure was — Rasmussen asked a similar question in June 2013 and found, no typo, that...

    A gay group will be able to march under its own banner in the city's St. Patrick's Day Parade for the first time on March 17, organizers said Wednesday. The nation’s oldest and biggest St. Pat's parade will lift the ban on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups that want to participate while identifying themselves as gay. “Those of us who are Irish and LGBT would watch this city celebrate and know we weren’t welcome,” former City Council speaker Christine Quinn, who boycotted the event for decades, told the Daily News. “To have that end, not only puts all of...

    PRINCETON, NJ -- Americans who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender remain significantly more likely than non-LGBT Americans to identify as Democrats. More than six in 10 LGBT Americans identify as Democrats or are Democratic-leaning independents, while 21% identify with or lean toward the Republican Party. Non-LGBT Americans are more evenly divided in their politics, tilting just slightly more Democratic than Republican. The political orientation of LGBT individuals is virtually unchanged since Gallup's June-September 2012 report, when 21% identified as Republicans, and 65% as Democrats. These results are based on 88,802 Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted between Jan. 2...

Matt Kidd, executive director of Reaching Out MBA, has also charged that a few attendees made comments that he says some gay people did not appreciate, reports Campus Reform. For example, in addition to having the temerity to show up while failing to be gay, one straight attendee allegedly said “Dude, I’m not gay.” Another allegedly said: “There needs to be less focus on gay stuff...

    I have a sensitive, inconvenient, and undoubtedly politically incorrect question: Why aren’t there more gay people? I ask because there’s something confusing about our “culture war.” Given the prominence of the issue, you would expect homosexuality to be rampant in America. When asked to estimate how many gay people there are, most people guess that it’s on the order of 20% to 25% of the population. But yet another study has been released by the CDC giving a more scientific estimate, and it finds that almost 97 percent of Americans describe themselves as straight — the actual number who describes...

In a ceremony at the White House, Mr. Obama noted that in much of the country, companies can fire employees based on their sexual orientation. “That’s wrong,” he said to an audience of supporters. “We’re here to do what we can to make it right — to bend that arc of justice just a little bit in a better direction.” President...

    Since humanity began, children have been raised by mothers and fathers.  Whether that is due to evolutionary pressures or God is irrelevant to the conclusion that children must benefit from having two parents of different genders.Recently the MSM has been trumpeting a study that supposedly says that children of gay couples are better off than children who have a father and a mother. To anyone who has been a parent, or a child in a family with two parents of different genders, that sounds like gays protesting too much.  Experience, and common sense, tells us that women and men bring...

    A major document by the Vatican has said that unjust discrimination against gay people needs to be avoided and that children of same-sex unions must be cared for as any other, but it still maintains opposition to same-sex couples adopting children and has affirmed traditional teachings on marriage. The Instrumentum Laboris is a result of Pope Francis' call in October 2013 for Roman Catholic bishops around the world to convene and discuss matters of family and the Christian faith. "On unions of persons of the same sex, the responses of the bishops' conferences refer to Church teaching. 'There are absolutely...

    Four-legged gardeners will assist with weed mitigation this weekend on San Francisco's Twin Peaks hillside in preparation for Pride Weekend, according to public works officials. A herd of weed-eating goats will chomp their way through the unwieldy vegetation that overtakes the site of the annual Pink Triangle installation. The goats arrived on Thursday and are expected to work throughout the weekend. The 50-or-so goats take the place of machinery and herbicides, and will be supervised day and night by human goat herders, public works officials said. San Francisco city grazing manager Genevieve Church explained that the goats provide benefits beyond...

Supreme Court deputy president Baroness Hale called for a rethink on religious and gay rights six months after she rejected the B&B owners’ arguments in a key test case. Lady Hale said in a speech that the law has done too little to protect the beliefs of Christians. And she cast doubts over her own judgment in the landmark case in which a gay couple sued Christian hoteliers Peter and Hazelmary Bull.

Perry, who ran an unsuccessful bid for the White House in 2012, said Wednesday during an appearance in San Francisco that he believed homosexuality was a "lifestyle" and a condition that could be overcome. "I may have the genetic coding that I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that," Perry said. "And I look at the homosexual issue in the same way."...

    In today’s rapidly disintegrating, “do-your-own-thing” culture, our pundits, professors, and judges are in desperate need of some powerful doses of rationality. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the conflict over the institution of marriage and what its definition is to be. What follows are several insights that hopefully will clear up some egregiously warped notions being bandied about by America’s “intelligentsia.” In a free and ordered society (which is what those of us on the political right maintain as the ideal) the defining of marriage cannot be left up to individual whim. It must be defined by the predominant...

The idea to swap trousers for skirts in a stand against sexism originated from pupils themselves, and was sanctioned by the city's school authorities and therefore by the Ministry of Education, the Local reported. Those who prefer not to bare their legs have the option of wearing a sticker which says, “I am fighting against sexism, are you?” Although the...

    The nation has a new state law that goes both ways, it seems. And the interesting thing about the law is that even its supporters think it doesn’t go all the way. Last week, Mississippi governor Phil Bryant signed the Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act (http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/2014/pdf/history/SB/SB2681.xml) that lets the state’s citizens and businesses challenge laws they believe substantially conflict with their religious beliefs. If this sounds familiar, it should. Several states have considered similar bills recently. In February, Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoed a bill (http://legiscan.com/AZ/text/SB1062/id/912244) that raised a ruckus across the land because it would have let business owners...

They have done this because you don’t need to debate a bigot, their views being seen as inherently unreasonable. This is, of course, not the only case of such delegitimization. Something very similar is taking place in the debate over climate change. There is a growing consensus on the left that there is but one appropriate position to...

Time could be running out on the world’s biggest celebration of all things Irish. Why? Because the parade’s organizers have for two decades steadfastly refused to allow gay and lesbian organizations to march under banners trumpeting their sexual orientation. The city’s self-appointed guardians of human rights long ago declared this policy exclusionary and intolerant. But, unlike in previous decades, the effort to paint the parade and its organizers...

Kansas lawmakers created the same kind of firestorm earlier this month when the House passed a bill allowing private and public employees to refuse to serve same-sex couples (the state Senate later killed that measure). And this could still be just the beginning. These two high-profile legislative debates are just part...

    PHOENIX — The Arizona Legislature gave final approval Thursday to legislation that allows business owners asserting their religious beliefs to refuse service to gays and others, drawing backlash from Democrats who called the proposal "state-sanctioned discrimination" and an embarrassment.

    State senators in Arizona voted heavily along partisan lines Wednesday in passing a bill that allows business owners to refuse service to homosexuals based on their religious beliefs. With Republicans in the majority, the bill, SB 1062, passed with a 17-13 vote. It defeated attempts to expand existing employment laws which protect against racial and religious discrimination to include sexual orientation, according to the Arizona Daily Star. A companion bill is also expected to pass in the House shortly. Republican Sen. Steve Yarbrough explained that the decision to support the measure is more about protecting people of faith from discrimination...

    Footage of NFL hopeful Michael Sam dancing topless in a Missouri gay bar showing off his best moves has emerged in the week he dramatically came out to the nation ahead of the draft. Sam, 23, was videoed at the SoCo nightclub in Columbia in October - just a few months after he had told all his Mizzou team mates he was gay and received their overwhelming support. In the footage, Sam dances along to Michael Jackson's Rock With You alongside a group of excited looking women, who all seem to be enjoying themselves.

    Sochi has one gay club. It is called Mayak, or “light house,” and it is located behind an unmarked door right off one of the city’s lush parks. You have to buzz to be let in. Once you’re in, though, you’re just as likely to encounter a foreign journalist as a local. As Olympic preparations have ramped up and now that the Games are in full swing, Mayak has been mobbed by foreign journalists eager to capture how the local gays live now that Russia is now internationally known for hating gays. “Too many,” Zhanna the butch cashier says rolling...

    Apparently, all new Chevy ads must include at least one gay couple. And if that bothers you, you’re a homophobe bigot whose religion denied women the vote and backed slavery. And any number of Facebook Crusaders are lurking about waiting to tell you that. The new orthodoxy is on the march and if you don’t clap loud enough you will be handled like a North Korean uncle. The new test of social acceptance in America is how enthusiastically you embrace all things gay. First it was sitcoms, now it’s Chevys, and while anchors gravely wonder if coming out as gay...

    We've had the Gaymmys; we've had Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson suspended for expressing unfavorable comments about anal intercourse; HBO has a new series, Looking about three gay men looking for love. It seems as though just about every television show, whether comedy or drama now has a gay character as a regular. It's not surprising that homosexuality has become mainstream in our culture because nearly everyone has a relative or friend who is gay and we have been deeply influenced by those words of Harvey Fierstein who said, "I just want to be loved. Is that so wrong?"...

    Compares to bus driver who challenged Rosa Parks by John UrbanTop Right News Not content to be left on the sidelines of any controversy, Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. is sticking his nose into the Phil Robertson affair. Jackson, clearly unhappy that only homosexual activists have had the stage thus far, attacked the star of A&E’s reality show “Duck Dynasty,” claiming that Robertson’s comments to GQ reflect “white privilege.” Jackson even absurdly compared Robertson to the bus driver who ordered Rosa Parks to move to the back of the bus in a statement obtained by ABC News: “These statements uttered by Robertson are...

    In a list she’s been keeping since 1993, media personality Barbara Walters named Hillary Clinton the year’s “most fascinating person” of 2013. “When you juxtapose her disastrous stint as secretary of state with polls that show she would easily win the 2016 presidential election, well, that’s fascinating,” Walters contended. “Consider the whole Benghazi thing, there were numerous warnings that our people in Libya working under Clinton’s Department of State supervision needed better protection. She neglected to address these warnings and people died as a result.” “One would think that this blot would be enough to sink anyone’s political future,” Walters...
