    There's a misleading debate over accepting Obama's first batch of Syrian migrants, the vast majority of whom are Sunni Muslim economic migrants, not refugees, and unlike the genuinely persecuted Christians and Yazidis whom we are not taking in, face no actual persecution. The media bellows ceaselessly that the Sunni Muslims are just like the Jews during the Holocausts. They're more like the Nazi war criminals fleeing Berlin after losing the war. Like the Nazis, they also hate America and want to kill Jews. Polls show at least 1,300 of Obama's first refugee batch support ISIS. The vast majority of Americans...

    Jim Alcorn/Special to The Record When "Something Rotten!" actor Aaron Kaburick and stage manager Patrick Wetzel aren't at Broadway's St. James Theatre or their Manhattan residence, chances are they're enjoying their log cabin on West Milford's Pinecliff Lake. From the neon lights of Broadway and their work on the new musical "Something Rotten!" to the serenity of West Milford's Pinecliff Lake, where the only illumination comes from the stars, two Manhattan renters couldn't come up with a more different setting for their first home.

    History hasn't looked kindly on the Catholic Church during WW II. The conventional narrative is not the whole storyAt six in the morning on Sunday, 12 March, a procession snaked toward the bronze doors of St. Peters. Swiss Guards led the line, followed by barefoot friars with belts of rope. Pius took his place at the end, borne on a portable throne. Ostrich plumes stirred silently to either side, like quotation marks. Pius entered the basilica to a blare of silver trumpets and a burst of applause. Through pillars of incense he blessed the faces. At the High Altar, attendants...

But as he is compiling data to document this, he is astonished to see that his hospital actively supports fast-food restaurants and even encourages participation in pro-obesity events.When he protests the hospital’s actions and shares his concerns, he is fired for his lack of sensitivity to fat people. He is even accused of holding to prejudicial views and, to prevent this from happening again in the future, the hospital institutes obesity sensitivity training...

    President Obama signed legislation repealing the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in 2011, but servicemen are still keeping silent on a related issue: Male-on-male rape. A new study released by the American Psychological Association says male rape is underreported in the U.S. military. A true approximation of the problem may even be “15 times higher than has been previously reported.” The APA’s conclusions, released Tuesday, were drawn from data spanning the 1980s until present. Its authors found cases of male Military Sexual Trauma, or MST, ranged over the years from .02 percent to 12 percent, with an average...

    Now, we're getting somewhere. The judge that ordered Kim Davis to be jailed for not breaking the law, but opposing his unlawful orders, is the same judge behind re-educating (indoctrinating) Kentucky student who opposed sodomy. That judge, a Bush appointee no less, was none other than US District Judge David Bunning. In 2003, the communist American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued the Boyd County Board of Education. The suit was to bully the Boyd County High School into allowing a "gay-straight" alliance club to meet. Parents overwhelmingly spoke out against the club, but to no avail. (Hint: Parents who love...

    As is now well-known, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis stopped issuing marriage licenses after the Supreme Court ruled in June that states are required to recognize same-sex nuptials. But the fury aimed at Davis has been disproportionate to the actual facts of the situation, and shows galling and revealing inconsistency on the part of her critics. In particular, where was the outcry when Attorney General and later Governor of California, Jerry Brown, refused to mount a defense of gay-marriage ban Proposition 8? Representing the state in court was at the center of his job. Yet he put his personal...

These estimates are many times higher than the 3.8% of the adult population who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in Gallup Daily tracking in the first four months of this year.

    When director Roland Emmerich set out to create his upcoming film Stonewall, he was engaging in a labor of love. He desired to tell the very American story of standing up to power and demanding equal rights. What he could not have expected is that angry backlash and threats of boycotts would come, not from right-wing, religious zealots, but from the LGBT community itself. Now Emmerich stands accused of whitewashing and cis-washing the seminal event in gay-rights history. The allegation is that Emmerich, by choosing a white protagonist from middle America (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) to tell his story, is trying...

Yesterday, BSA’s national office changed its policy to end hiring discrimination within the organization and remove its bar on openly gay volunteer Scout leaders, while allowing church-sponsored troops to make their own leadership choices. Will that end the controversy? Don’t bet on it: The Boy Scouts of America, facing litigation, shrinking membership and sweeping acceptance...

Its merely a window through which they will push for other rights, in housing, education, health care, employment and religious practice.

    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case to determine whether the Constitution requires states to issue same-sex marriage licenses and requires other states to honor same-sex marriages performed in those states. A primary argument by the plaintiffs is that gay marriage is covered under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment and that if straights can marry, then so can gays. The counterargument is that marriage is a privilege and not a right, a union of one man and one woman sanctioned over millennia by virtually every culture and country over time as the stable...

    (Snip) No, the real intent of removing tax-exempt status is to cripple the institutions that continue their dissent from the sexual revolution. When tax exemptions are removed, donors will give far less than they are giving now. Churches will become liable to property taxes. That means that many churches will have to forfeit their property to the government because they wont be able to afford the taxes they have to pay on it. Many of them wouldnt be able to pay them now. If donations went down, they would be that much further from being able to pay them. As...

Paxton said Fridays flawed opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court, which overturned bans against same-sex marriage in Texas and other states, placed religious people in conflict between following their faith and the U.S. Constitution

    ISIS celebrated gay love today by tossing four more gays from top of a highrise. Of course a crowd gathered below to watch the execution. Several Islamists tweeted out #LoveWins – the same hashtag that was used today after the Supreme Court ruling. Of course this wasn’t the first time… A massive crowd assembled to watch ISIS rebels throw another gay man off a building top earlier this month. Hundreds of spectators came out to watch the brutal public execution. It looks like they drove their cars to the execution! They hung the man from his feet and then let...

    Fridays 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court ruling made same-sex marriage officially legal nationwide. Great. Whats next? The Court closed the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, ruling that the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow states to ban same-sex marriage. But other critical issues facing LGBT Americans have been waiting for the same mix of funding and public interest that carried same-sex marriage over the threshold.

    SALT LAKE CITY The Church issued the following statement Friday: "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints acknowledges that following today's ruling by the Supreme Court, same-sex marriages are now legal in the United States. The Court's decision does not alter the Lord's doctrine that marriage is a union between a man and a woman ordained by God. While showing respect for those who think differently, the Church will continue to teach and promote marriage between a man and a woman as a central part of our doctrine and practice." The Church has outlined its doctrine and position...

    Under the banner of what is dishonestly called a gay pride or gay rights flag, hate, fascism, and intolerance has festered for years, specifically against Christians and conservatives. Under the auspices of a rights and equality symbol, Leftists have been on a rampage to take way the rights of others through bullying, lies, and online terrorism. The list of misdeeds and victims resulting from an increasingly emboldened Big Gay Hate Machine continues to grow. Under this banner of hate, people are outed against their will, terrorized out of business merely for being Christian, bullied and harassed for thoughtcrimes; moreover, hate...

  • How Does Gay 'Marriage' Hurt Us? Here's How.

    CNS ^ | June 17, 2014 | Eric Metaxas
    Christians are often asked by gay activists why they oppose same-sex marriage. How does our marriage hurt you? they ask. Well, I can think of one significant way it will hurt us: It will destroy religious freedom and free speech rights. The handwriting is on the wall in Canada, which legalized same-sex marriage in 2005, in effect completely changing its true meaning. Since then, as Michael Coren notes in National Review Online, there have been between 200 and 300 proceedings against critics and opponents of same-sex marriage. Of course he means legal proceedings. For instance, in Saskatchewan, a homosexual...

    You may recall Brendan Eich. The cofounder and CEO of Mozilla was dismissed from his company in 2014 when it was discovered that, six years earlier, he had donated $1,000 to California’s Proposition 8 campaign. That ballot initiative, limiting marriage to one man and one woman, passed with a larger percentage of the vote in California than Barack Obama received nationally in 2012. No one who knew Eich accused him of treating his gay coworkers badly—by all accounts he was kind and generous to his colleagues. Nonetheless, having provided modest financial support to a lawful ballot initiative that passed with a...

    The Federalist ^ | 6-12-15 | Dan McLaughlin
    In parts I, II, III, and IV of this essay, I examined the problem: why Christians face increasing demands to accept same-sex marriage and homosexual sex not as voluntary conduct but as essential components of personal identity, and why the nature of Christian theology would require Christians to renounce their own faith identities to do so. In this final part, I look at the prospects for a solution or, at any rate, an armistice. As I noted at the outset of part I of this series, we do not live in a live-and-let-live society; we live, increasingly, in one in...
