  • Vatican’s firing of gay priest puts “Who am I to Judge” to the test

    Today, on the eve of the Synod on the Family, a Polish priest who works–or rather, worked–in the Vatican decided to announce that he’s gay and has a partner. In an interview with “Corriere della Sera,” Msgr. Krzystof Charamsa said: I want the Church and my community to know who I am: a gay priest who is happy, and proud of his identity. I’m prepared to pay the consequences, but it’s time the Church opened its eyes, and realised that offering gay believers total abstinence from a life of love is inhuman. Msgr. Krzystof Charamsa Set aside, for a moment,...

    Sir Elton John says he wants to meet Vladimir Putin to discuss what he called the Russian president's "ridiculous" attitude to gay rights. A report by Human Rights Watch last year said Russia was failing to prevent and prosecute homophobic violence amid a rise in attacks against minorities. Speaking to the BBC, Sir Elton said he would welcome talks with Mr Putin even though "he may laugh behind my back... and call me an absolute idiot". The musician is currently in Ukraine. He met Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and called for the country to give stronger support to the lesbian,...

    Shepard Smith, Fox News host, cut into his own press conference coverage of the release of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis from jail to rail against her, as well as those who supported her denial of wedding certificates to same-sex couples, saying such is simply a "religious play" that has no business in government service. He also compared Kim Davis supporters to those who oppose Sharia law, characterizing them as one and the same when it comes to ideology. "They set this up as a religious play again," Smith said, "This is the same crowd that says, 'We don't want Sharia...
  • The word "Matrimony" comes from "Mater". (Mother)

    I suspected that there was something inherent in the roots of the word "Matrimony" which would establish it's meaning as being between a man and a woman. I believe a word can be better understood by looking up how it came to us from older languages, and so I consulted an online etymology dictionary. It said the word "Matrimony" is derived from the word "Mater", which means "Mother" in Latin. This is a clear indication that the intended purpose is to begat children.

    “Please don’t think this is racist but…” That was the disclaimer that an Asian man sent to Rokashi Edwards, 25, a black programmer living in Toronto, before telling him that he would never consider having sex with a black man. Shocked, Edwards tried to push back on the man’s claim that he wasn’t being racist but he ran up against the same obstacle that many gay men of color face in the world of online dating. “It’s just a preference,” he was told. The conversation could go no further.

    A new study suggests that 'gaydar' -- the sixth sense by which many insist they can just tell that someone they meet isn't heterosexual -- is bad in two big ways. For starters, it doesn't work. But more importantly, the concept of gaydar may be pretty harmful. It may -- big surprise here, guys -- just be an excuse to revel in harmful stereotypes about LGBTQ people. In a paper published in the Journal of Sex Research, University of Wisconsin-Madison psychologist William Cox argues that gaydar just isn't really a thing. "Imagine that 100 percent of gay men wear pink...

    As a defiant Kentucky clerk sat in jail Friday, choosing indefinite imprisonment over licensing gay marriages, her lawyers approached the microphones outside and compared her to Dr. Martin Luther King. Around the country, other supporters reached for Biblical heroes, comparing her to Silas and Daniel, imprisoned for their faith and rescued by God. It's precisely the narrative gay rights advocates had hoped to avoid. But as Davis' mug shot rocketed around the Internet, it became clear that the gay rights movement must battle this idea that Christianity is under siege, said Kenneth Upton, senior counsel for Lambda Legal, a law...

    Denver International Airport authorities have released internal videotape of a former Transportation Security Administration screener at DIA allegedly groping male passengers last February. CBS4 obtained the redacted videotape Tuesday after filing a Colorado Open Records Act request for the tape. Authorities had refused to release the tape for months citing an ongoing criminal investigation. But in July the Denver district attorney said there would be no criminal charges in the case clearing the way for the release of the videotape. Although no criminal charges were filed, TSA fired screener Ty Spicha and his coworker Yasmeen Shafi after the alleged groping...

    A federal judge has ordered Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis and her deputies to appear in his courtroom Thursday and explain why Davis should not be held in contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses. Shortly after opening her doors Tuesday, Davis told two same-sex couples who asked for marriage licenses that she would not issue them, despite a federal court injunction ordering her to do so. In a brief but tense encounter between Davis and a couple dozen marriage-equality demonstrators who crowded into her office, the clerk repeatedly refused to comply with the court order. "Under whose...

So when Chick-Fil-A came calling with an interest in taking over the site, it looked like a win-win. Instead, a longstanding ban on drive-thru restaurants in downtown Westchester has Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin opposed to the plan and butting heads with a neighborhood council wanting to make an exception to the rule.

    PJM ^ | August 28, 2015 | J. Christian Adams
    Two days ago, ABC News reported that Vester Flanagan, the murderer of two WDBJ employees, sent a 23-page faxed manifesto to ABC News. ABC reported bits and pieces of the manifesto. Yet we still haven’t seen the full document. ABC hasn’t made it available. Why? John Nolte and others have been busy hammering away at the racial hypocrisy of many in the media after treating Flanagan’s crimes very differently from Dylann Roof’s. Unquestionably, they were both racially motivated. But you’d never know that from reading the headlines in the Washington Post or other mouthpieces that enable the (one way) racial...

Kate Steinle and Alison Parker were not killed by guns. They were killed by goaded men.

    On August 25,, the official website of the German Bishops' Conference, published an interview with the German moral theologian Stephan Goertz concerning his new book, Who Am I to Judge? Homosexuality and the Catholic Church. In the interview, Goertz makes the claim that homosexuality should no longer be condemned because the times have changed. In biblical times, says the theologian, "procreation was the first God-given purpose of sexuality." At that time, "sexuality had as its first purpose to secure the survival of the people"; however, "that is obviously not any more our situation, and that is since the [Second...

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.

    The phrase “anti-immigrant” is loose in media land, being used to describe politicians and everyday Americans alike. How can anyone be “anti-immigrant?” Immigrants are hard workers! We are a nation of immigrants! The phrase is used recklessly by the New York Times, U.S. News and of course MSNBC, as well as many others. Never mind that there is a huge difference between immigration and illegal immigration. That’s a difference as profound as renters versus squatters, or even customers versus burglars. To be anti-illegal-immigration is NOT the same as to be anti-immigration. Yet the phrases are being used interchangeably in the...

Commitment. Family.” The one-page memo talks about the protection of religious freedom, the golden rule, family stability, and mutual respect. In the fight for marriage equality, the left borrowed the language of the right, in other words, and used it consistently and explicitly to bring the opposition along. Now...

    As I scan the societal landscape I see that acceptance of homosexual identity and behavior, and same-sex marriage has grown. I now find my biblical point of view is the minority perspective. If a well-known Christian says that homosexual lust and sexual activity is a sin, even if that person urges kindness and respect for all, words like "hater" and "bigot" are tossed around rather freely. And then, in the midst of all this, Jesus calls me to love my neighbor, which includes those who identify as homosexuals. I can offhandedly note to myself and others that God's accepting, forgiving...

    “To learn who rules over you, find out whom you are not allowed to criticize.” — Voltaire If you’re wondering what Americans can do as our ruling class sets about enforcing its redefinition of marriage, start by looking back at what it did to the citizens of Indiana when their legislature raised the possibility that someone might object to joining in celebrations of homosexual marriage. Support for homosexual unions was incidental to the insistence of the likeminded folks atop society’s commanding heights on punishing Indiana. What incurs their ire has less to do with any substantive matter than with the...

    I'm homosexual and I'm afraid about what my future will be and that people won't like me. This Humans of New York photo showing what it says is a distraught young boy crying because he is gay has gone viral, with thousands of people commenting on Facebook offering advice and words of support. “I’m homosexual and I’m afraid about what my future will be and that people won’t like me,” the caption reads. [Snip] “Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing,” [Hillary] wrote. “You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things...
  • Clarence Thomas Defends Human Exceptionalism

    I am not involved in the same sex marriage debate. I want both sides of that contentious issue to agree with me on human exceptionalism–and the best way to be heard by all is to keep my big trap shut on domestic relations jurisprudence. But I was struck by the clarion defense of equal and intrinsic human dignity issued by Justice Clarence Thomas in his Obergefell v Hodges dissent.  The heart of his opinion begins by quoting the immortal “all men are created equal” phrase from the Declaration of Independence. He then proceeds to apply that crucial insight from the American founding.  From...
  • Kennedy Replaces the “Laws of Nature” with His Own

    Same-sex “marriage” advocates will heartily celebrate July 4 this year, thrilled with the possibilities in the New America they’re creating in their own image. They will be especially grateful to Anthony Kennedy and the four liberal justices who gave them gay “marriage” by assuming unto themselves what Thomas Jefferson two-and-a-half centuries ago called “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” That sublime understanding in that Declaration has been superseded by a subversive understanding declared by the likes of Justice Kennedy.Kennedy’s swing vote making gay “marriage” a constitutional right recognized in all 50 states is one of the most...

    There was plenty to marvel at during the New York City Pride March on Sunday, but one precocious 8-year-old boy stood out from the crowd: Desmond Napoles, of Brooklyn, who joyously strutted and vogued his way down Fifth Avenue in a rainbow tutu and gold sequined cap. And when critics reared their heads on social media Monday, suggesting his participation was inappropriate, mom Wendylou Napoles shut them down with grace and pride. “If you are offended, don’t look,” Napoles wrote, in part, in a lengthy post on the Facebook page of LGBT website NewNowNext. That’s where a photo of...
  • ‘Un-Islamic’ to Criminalise Homosexuality, Muslim Group With Malaysian Links Says

    07/01/2015 1:31:36 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 4 replies
    A US-based Muslim group has hit out at those seeking to criminalise homosexuality, arguing that it is “un-Islamic” to punish those of different sexual orientations. Muslims for Progressive Values (MPV), which has a Malaysian chapter, said however that it would be up to Malaysia’s people to decide if they want to legalise same-sex marriages as has been done by the US Supreme Court earlier this week. “Yes, I do believe all forms of penalisation and outright criminalisation of homosexuality needs to be done away with as it has no basis in universal values, compassion for our fellow humankind. Homosexuality is...

    Call it a "Same Sex Sandwich" Now that the Supreme Court of the United States has officially given gays in all 50 states the right to marry, Bible believing Christians and other social Conservatives have not one but two intense moral and political battles to fight in the years ahead. And as the abortion issue has amply demonstrated, language plays a large persuasive role in winning over people's minds to one viewpoint or another. Take for instance the terms "pro-choice" vs. "pro-life". While "pro-choice" quickly sprinted into the lead, the falsehoods and contradictions inherent in the term eventually stopped it's...

  • Yoel Romero Takes out Lyoto Machida and 'Gay Jesus' in 1 Night [What Happened to You, USA?!?]

    UFC middleweight Yoel Romero says he did not refer to same-sex marriage during a controversial postfight victory speech on Saturday, following a knockout win over Lyoto Machida in Hollywood, Florida. Romero, who was born in Cuba, set off a firestorm on social media when he asked in accented English, "What happened to you USA?" His closing comment came under the most scrutiny, as he apparently said, "Go for Jesus, not for gay Jesus," or "Go for Jesus, not forget Jesus." Romero's comments were quickly linked to Friday's Supreme Court ruling in favor of the constitutional right to same-sex marriage...
