    Transgender people should be able to change their first name and gender easily without bureaucracy getting in the way, the Swiss government believes. On Thursday, it announced plans to modify the Swiss civil code to make such changes easier to register. It means that anyone who is convinced that the gender they have been assigned in the civil register is not the right one for them should be able to change both gender and first names by means of a simple declaration. No medical examination will be required for changes to the register. Under the plans — which are now...

    Transgender people are being encouraged to become Church of England vicars as bishops launch a diversity drive. Bishops in the diocese of Lichfield have issued new guidance to parishioners and clergy reminding them that LGBT people "can be called to roles of leadership and service in the local church". The guidance, titled "welcoming and honouring LGBT+ people", warns that the church's reputation as being unwelcoming towards gay and transgender people is stopping young people attending. "We very much hope that they, like everyone else, feel encouraged to serve on PCCs, or as churchwardens and worship leaders, for instance, and are...

    Ireland on Saturday voted to erase the stigma and burden of shame from hundreds of thousands of women who secretly had abortions, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said. Speaking after a landslide referendum in favour of repealing the republic's ban on abortions, Varadkar said Ireland had emerged from the shadows and come of age. "Today is an historic day for Ireland. A quiet revolution has taken place," he said in a speech at Dublin Castle, where the referendum result was declared, showing 66 percent had voted to repeal the constitutional ban on abortions. Varadkar, Ireland's first gay prime minister, came to...

    The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) cut relational and financial ties with the D.C. Baptist Convention (DCBC) for refusing to disfellowship a church with two lesbian pastors. The Executive Committee of the SBC issued a warning to the DCBC in February in which the D.C. convention was given 90 days to remove any church in its fellowship that “practice affirming, approving or endorsing homosexual behavior,” according to Baptist Press. The executive committee gave the warning specifically with regard to Calvary Baptist Church, which affirmed a lesbian couple as co-pastors in 2017, according to Juicy Ecumenism. The D.C. Baptist Convention failed to...

    IRELAND: a post-mortem examination - by Roberto de Mattei (Revisited) Almost exactly three years ago, in May 2015, following the "same-sex marriage" referendum in Ireland, Roberto de Mattei made his "post-mortem examination" of the formerly Catholic powerhouse. On this sad Saturday, as vote tallies confirm that an overwhelming majority of Irish voters chose to remove the 8th amendment of the Irish Constitution, we take a moment to revisit his piece. What did the 8th amendment say exactly? These words: The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of...

    A pro-life activist found herself the target of loud, accusatory chants by a group of pro-life protesters last week, who dubbed her a “racist” and “sexist” for not supporting a woman’s right to choose. Intersectional feminist club “The Women’s Collective” gathered at the University of Sydney Thursday, May 17, to protest a talk by Life Choice Australia director Rebecca Gosper titled, “Abortion: The Exploitation of Women,” The Daily Wire reported. Footage of the campus protest shows the band of feminists shouting chants and waving signs in an effort to make their message loud and clear outside the anti-abortion event. Some...

    A drug-fueled sex fad called "chemsex" was linked to increased risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among men who have sex with men (MSM), researchers found. Gay, bisexual or other MSM who disclosed use of chemsex were more likely to be newly diagnosed with HIV infection, acute bacterial and rectal STIs, and hepatitis C, reported Mark Pakianathan, MBChB, of Wandsworth Integrated Sexual Health at The Courtyard Clinic in London, and colleagues.

    In the United States, the percentage of adults identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender has increased to 4.5 percent, according to a year-long survey, which also shows that the biggest increase has been among millennials. Gallup's daily tracking in 2017 has found that more than 11 million adults now identify as LGBT in the country, which is 4.5 percent of the population — up from 4.1 percent in 2016 and 3.5 percent in 2012. The increase is driven primarily by the millennials, meaning those born between 1980 and 1999, as those from this group who identify as LGBT rose...
  • Hatboro extends discrimination protections to LGBTQ community

    HATBORO >> The borough has joined a small but steadily growing list of municipalities across Pennsylvania that has done what the state government, so far, has been unable to do — extend discrimination protections to members of the LGBTQ community. In a 4-3 vote Monday night, borough council approved an ordinance making it unlawful in Hatboro to discriminate against a person in matters of employment, housing, commercial property acquisition and public accommodations on the basis of that person’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. The state’s Human Relations Act, however, does not extend protections to include actual or perceived...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis' reported comments to a gay man that "God made you like this" have been embraced by the LGBT community as another sign of Francis' desire to make gay people feel welcomed and loved in the Catholic Church. Juan Carlos Cruz, the main whistleblower in Chile's clerical sex abuse and cover-up scandal, said Monday he spoke to Francis about his homosexuality during their recent meetings at the Vatican. The pope invited Cruz and other victims of a Chilean predator priest to discuss their cases last month. Cruz said he told Francis how Chile's bishops used...
  • Dolan: Pope’s Reported Remarks to Gay Man, While ‘Beautiful,’ Could Require Clarification

    New York City, N.Y., May 22, 2018 / 08:30 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Archbishop of New York said Tuesday that while some recent comments about homosexuality attributed to Pope Francis are “orthodox teaching,” the pope's reported remarks could require clarification. Cardinal Timothy Dolan affirmed the pope’s recent affirmation of God’s love for a gay man with whom the pontiff visited in Rome, saying: “Jesus would have said that, and so would I. That’s conservative, traditional, Catholic, orthodox teaching. The ‘Catechism’ insists on that.” “While any sexual expression outside of a man and woman in marriage is contrary to God's purpose,...

    Some LGBT advocates say those with same-sex attraction who use "avoidance techniques" are cheating.Martin Luther wrote, "If your head is made of butter, stay away from the fire." Sound advice for anyone seeking freedom from a bad habit or sinful temptation.To listen to gay supporters, one should be able to immerse themselves in all things homosexual and have the will power to abstain from sin.Are avoidance techniques true in the natural realm?Indeed they are. Someone might say the very term "avoidance techniques" sounds unbiblical.Fair skinned persons should avoid the noon day sun; that would include me. I burn easily.Persons allergic...

    Reports that Pope Francis told a sex-abuse victim that God made him gay have drawn headlines this week, with many observers inferring a new level of acceptance of homosexuality, which the catechism of the Catholic Church describes as “objectively disordered.” The Vatican spokesman declined to confirm or deny the statement, citing a policy of not commenting on the pope’s private conversations. But no aspect of Pope Francis’ five-year reign has been better known or more controversial than his conciliatory approach to gay people, most famously expressed in his 2013 words about gay priests: “Who am I to judge?”

    Hillary Clinton had a choice between endorsing incumbent Gov. Mario Cuomo (D-NY) or his upstart rival for the Democrat nomination, Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, who would not only be the first woman governor of the Empire State, but the first gay governor. Hillary chose the old white guy. It was former Secretary of State Madeline Albright who famously said in support of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign, “It’s not done, and you have to help. Hillary Clinton will always be there for you. And just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t...

    The nascent New York gubernatorial bid of Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon hit a rough start in the polls. I wondered initially if she was going to attempt to campaign in the more conservative haunts of upstate and how she might fare that far from her usual digs in Manhattan. This week Nixon set out to answer that question, making campaign stops in Syracuse and Rochester. In the latter appearance, she had a message for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Apparently, he’s not done enough to protect illegal aliens from the long arm of the law and if...
