  • Guide to growing up gay accused of suggesting 'pedophile kind of behaviour' by parents

    Author James Dawson has received backlash from parents for his guide to growing up LGBT, This Book Is Gay, claiming they no longer feel comfortable taking their children to the library if his book is on the shelves, reports The Guardian. In Wasilla, Alaska, after a 10-year-old boy picked up the book from the juvenile non-fiction section of the public library, his mother was "shocked to find it contained frank drawings and descriptions of gay sex acts inside". The mother launched an appeal after she was told by the local librarian that it was appropriately shelved, leading to dozens of...
  • Is there anyplace left for Christians to shop?

    11/24/2015 5:23:19 PM PST · by Extremely Extreme Extremist · 32 replies
    Well, it’s that time again – time to get out the Christmas list and start hitting the stores. The problem is – what stores? For any Christian who wants to spend hard-earned dollars with family-friendly, Christian-affirming retailers, restaurants and service providers, the list is growing shorter all the time. I stopped shopping at Macy’s in 2011 after learning about the retailer’s grossly unjust policy against women. Macy’s management said “yes” to a transsexual young man’s demand to change in the women’s dressing room and rejected a Christian employee’s attempt to block his inappropriate access, even firing her because of her...

    Many around me in the coffee shop nodded in agreement in support of welcoming Christian refugees and rejecting those of other faiths. It fits their narrative that they should help persecuted Christians. After all, despite the fact that American Christians are the most entitled and privileged people in the history of the planet, many feel persecuted.One of the more endearing customs of many of our small town Iowa churches on Sunday morning is story time. The pastor welcomes elementary and pre-school aged kids up front, where he or she sits with the children, and shares a parable. Often the pastor...

The photograph was taken at a rally prior to the 2000 Gay Pride Parade in New York City.“A forerunner in the fight against gender identity discrimination, Sylvia Rivera worked the dicey Times Square district as a trans woman sex worker after she was cast out by family as a teenager,” says the description of the...

    An Alabama lesbian mother is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse a ruling by the state’s highest court that it will not recognize her adoption of three children in neighboring Georgia.The Alabama Supreme Court ruled that Georgia courts violated their own state laws in granting the adoptions of the children she shared with her former partner and will not order custody or even visitation with the children. Lawyers for V.L., as the woman is identified in court papers, say the decision violates the Constitution’s Full Faith and Credit Clause, which requires that states respect court judgments, including adoption orders,...

Instead, they were shocked and devastated when a judge in the central Utah city of Price ordered the child be removed from their home within a week and placed with a heterosexual couple, citing a belief that children are worse off when raised by gay couples. There were audible gasps in the courtroom, Hoagland said,...

    Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she's "embarassed" that she grew up in the same state as Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Lawrence, who has been on a crusade on Hollywood's gender pay gap, brought up the subject in an interview with Vogue published Wednesday night. According to interviewer Jonathan Van Meter, the interview took place the day after Davis got out of jail, and Lawrence brought her up because she views Davis as the "lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky." "Don't even say her name...

Lopez’s parents divorced when he was a toddler. His mother formed an intimate relationship with another woman. His father disappeared from his life for a long time.

In remarks shortly after Tuesday’s balloting, Ms. Parker blamed the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance’s lopsided loss on “a very small but determined group of right-wing ideologues and the religionist right” for waging “a campaign of fear-mongering and deliberate lies.” The ordinance, named Proposition 1 on the city ballot, lost by 62 to 38 percent despite the strong support of national gay-rights organizations, who...

    Sometime in the near future, a transgender teenager in Texas will attempt suicide — and maybe succeed — because vilifying people for their gender identity remains politically acceptable in America. The hateful rhetoric of leaders like Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is the latest, ugliest example.

    Lifesite ^ | 10/30/15 | Eric Metaxas
    This summer, the Supreme Court narrowly redefined marriage and handed the gay-rights movement a major victory: full “equality” and recognition by the government. With that box checked, the gay-rights movement can now focus on its ultimate goal: silencing those who disagree. One new and troubling strategy has emerged from the scientific community. Instead of vilifying those who believe in natural marriage, suggest some researchers, we should diagnose them. It’s an ironic reversal. Years ago, homosexuality was listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s manual of disorders. But in 1986 it was removed, followed by a concerted push from Association members to...

And our culture isnt doing anything to stem the tide. In fact, its pulling our teens away from purity and pushing them toward promiscuity.

The bishop of Bombay, India, said the Church's attitude towards LGBT people "must be all-embracing, inclusive," since to "not be welcoming would not be a Catholic attitude. It would not be Christ's attitude, certainly." Gracias supports the idea that the Church should get rid of terms such as "disorder" and "evil" when referring to homosexuality, and expressed hopes the Synod Fathers will "use gentler...

And supporters of traditional marriage are watching Murphys complaint closely. Its a groundbreaking complaint, says Travis Weber, director of the Family Research Councils Center for Religious Liberty. Its significant for several reasons. Among those reasons is that the legal game has changed radically since the diocese fired Murphy in early April, a week after he began his position...

    Esquires Charles Pierce is a graduate of a Jesuit university (Marquette). Its among the many reasons hes been a big fan of Pope Francis, the first-ever Jesuit pontiff, and its probably one factor in his vehement disappointment that Francis met with, and apparently encouraged, gay-marriage objector Kim Davis last week in Washington. Pierce referred to the popes behavior regarding the nutball Davis as a fcking [sic] blunder, a sin against charity, and the dumbest thing [he] ever has done. He concluded, as if addressing Francis, I will pray for you, because, damn, son, you need it. From Pierces post (bolding...

    A federal judge on Wednesday denied Kim Davis a stay of his order requiring her office to issue marriage licenses to all eligible couples who want one, the latest setback for the Kentucky county clerk who went to jail rather than issue licenses to gay couples. Lawyers for couples suing Davis have said that since her return to work, the Rowan County clerk has interfered with the issuance of marriage licenses in violation of orders by U.S. District Judge David Bunning's in Louisville. An attorney for Davis has said she has made a good-faith effort to comply with Bunning's orders....
