    Full title: EXCLUSIVE: Virginia killer Vester Lee Flanagan wrote letters to rant about lack of sex and his days as gay escortVester Lee Flanagan lamented shortly before gunning down two journalists on live TV that his glory days as a $2,000-a-night male escort were behind him, stunning new documents reveal. The typed and handwritten letters, as well as photographs, driver’s licenses and student IDs, were shown to the Daily News by one of Flanagan’s close friends, Robert Avent, who says he spoke to the calm and collected killer moments before he committed suicide as cops closed in on him last...

    “Judicial activism occurs when judges write subjective policy preferences into the law rather than apply the law impartially according to its original meaning.” – The Heritage Foundation To vocal opponents of judicial activism, this comes as little surprise. The U.S. Supreme Court has suffered a major credibility blow in the wake of its politically motivated 5-4 Obergefell v. Hodges “gay marriage” opinion. In it, they presumed to do the impossible – both redefine the age-old institution of natural marriage and to give this fictional definition precedence over freedoms actually enumerated in the Bill of Rights. According to Rasmussen, only “36...

    The U.S. Supreme Court this week faces the first religious objection to reach the justices since the decision declaring a constitutional right to same-sex marriage. A county clerk in Kentucky is asking for relief from a lower court order directing her to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. Her lawyers filed an emergency application directed to Justice Elena Kagan, who handles such requests from that part of the country.

    The new ad shows young people in a variety of situations: a boy looking at a figure of two grooms atop a wedding cake, a girl examining herself in a full-length mirror, a boy using social media, a girl starting to lift up her shirt and appearing to take a selfie, and a boy leading a nervous-looking girl inside at a house party. It then shows the kids and teens in those scenarios raise their hands, as a narrator says, “Our kids have questions. The sex-ed and health curriculum can help.”

    The “global human rights education project” is a collective term for a worldwide rights-advocacy campaign through both formal and non-formal education channels. Amnesty International (AI), a major actor in human rights education (HRE), describes HRE on its website ) as  “a deliberate, participatory practice aimed at empowering individuals, groups and communities through fostering knowledge, skills and attitudes consistent with internationally recognized human rights principles.”Sounds innocuous – laudable, even – until one takes a long, hard look at how it defines and applies those ‘principles’.The legal basis for “universal” human rights is fragmented and weak. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights...

    She’s seen paternity battles, struggles for alimony, vicious tugs-of-war over children, but veteran family attorney Susan Bender had never handled a custody fight quite like this. A gay male couple donated sperm from one of the men to a lesbian couple, resulting in a baby. Each couple bought identical New York apartments and decorated them exactly the same. The intention was to split the year into four quarters and rotate the primary parenting duties amongst themselves. The complex plan was intended “so that they could all parent the child or children in some meaningful way,” the attorney said. “They were...

    A Colorado appellate court ruled earlier this month that Jack Phillips, the evangelical owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver, had violated the rights of a gay couple when he declined on religious grounds to design and bake a custom wedding cake for them in 2012 -- two years before same-sex marriage was even legal in the state. (The couple had actually married in Massachusetts.) The court ordered Phillips to “take remedial measures, including comprehensive staff training” on how conscientious objection must give way to anti­discrim­ination law in these situations, and to “file quarterly compliance reports” with the state on...

    After self-described “racist” killer Dylann Roof executed the black members of a church Bible study, people found photos of the killer holding the Confederate battle flag. There were also photos of him burning and stomping on the American flag — per the request of a social media activist. Suddenly, the ‘Southern Cross‘ was removed from the public square all over — state houses, companies, flag poles and college campuses. The murders prompted the call for the digging up the body of Nathan Bedford Forrest, the founder of the Ku Klux Klan. The Virginia murderer had in his possession the ‘gay...

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.

    CALGARY — A Calgary man says he will quit his job if he’s assigned to drive a bus wrapped in a rainbow flag. The annual Calgary Pride Festival kicks off Friday and, as a show of support, a Calgary Transit bus has been wrapped in the symbol of inclusiveness. The rainbow flag bus will operate through Sept. 7, the day of the parade. Jesse Rau, who has worked for Calgary Transit as a driver for about a year, says he’s a Christian and can’t support homosexuality. Rau hopes Calgary Transit and the Amalgamated Transit Union will support drivers who don’t...

    On August 25, Katholisch.de, 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...

The well-oiled LGBT lobbying machine was rebutted by pro-family counselors and experts, many of whom who came to Boston from across America, as well as MassResistance activists. At issue is Bill H97, which is a major goal of the LGBT lobby this year. It would make it illegal for licensed therapists to help children deal with traumatic sexual orientation problems, often the result of...

"This case is about criminalization of consensual relations and there are 21st century cases rather than 19th century cases," said attorney Jonathan Turley in a filing. "It is clear that states can no longer use criminal codes to coerce or punish those who choose to live in consensual but unpopular unions." In a case that was filed in 2011, "Sister Wives" star...

According to a draft timeline recently circulated among top Department of Defense (DoD) personnel, the ban on "openly" transgender soldiers will be lifted on May 27, 2016. The DoD is considering a pilot program to let soldiers take a sabbatical from active service in order to "make their transition" – that is to say, procure hormone drugs or genital reconstruction surgery in...

She now seeks to support her choice claiming the Bible does not condemn homosexuality or gay “marriage.”

    Sexual Orientation Regulations (SORs) (also known as sexual orientation anti-discrimination policies) are the most devious tactic of the LGBT movement for stripping Christians of First Amendment protections and setting the stage for the “gay” takeover of any social, political or cultural entity. These SORs are the seed that contains the entire tree of the homosexual agenda with all of its poisonous fruit. Once implanted, the entire agenda emerges like the trunk and branches of a Manchineel tree, producing what looks deceptively like wholesome fruit but in fact is known in the island paradise in which it grows as the manzanita...

    In a challenging field of competitors, Fox News Channel’s Andrew Napolitano has a strong entry for the most laughable legal analysis of the Indiana religious-freedom law. In an April Fool’s Day op-ed that he evidently means to be taken seriously, Napolitano argues that state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws are unconstitutional. Napolitano’s core claim is that the Supreme Court, in its 1997 ruling in Boerne v. Flores, ruled that the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act is unconstitutional. In Boerne the Court ruled that Congress lacked the constitutional power to apply the federal RFRA against the states. Napolitano accurately summarizes...

What’s truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama – and Democrats will not use the instruments of government to destroy one of their own. Whether that eventually proves true, the sentiment itself reveals a...

Ignatius Kaigama, president of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Nigeria and leader of the Jos archdiocese. He told a recent Catholic assembly in his archdiocese, "The culture of same-sex marriage is alien to our understanding of the family and should not be imposed on Nigerians." These words were met with heavy applause. The archbishop then shifted to Nigeria's Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act, which took effect in 2014. He is an ardent supporter of it, and at the time he lauded Nigeria's president,...

    ROWAN COUNTY, KY, August 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- A federal appeals court has ordered Christian clerk Kim Davis to provide same-sex “marriage” licenses, but she’s refusing to give in. Davis, a Democrat, says that her Christian beliefs will not allow her to issue licenses for same-sex “marriages.” Despite pressure from Democrat Gov. Steve Beshear, a lawsuit from the ACLU, and two federal court rulings, Davis has refused to issue any licenses while the matter is still working its way through the courts. However, the Sixth District Court of Appeals said Davis must issue the licenses. While critics say Davis must follow the law as a...

    DURHAM, NC, August 27, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Christian freshmen at Duke University are refusing to read an assigned graphic novel depicting masturbation and homosexual intercourse. The university says the assignment was optional and won’t discipline the holdouts. Brian Grasso emerged as the spokesperson for the dissenters after he posted his decision on the Class of 2019’s closed Facebook page. Opponents have done their best to mock and deride the holdouts as ignoramuses who don’t belong at Duke, but Grasso has addressed all their jibes, first to Duke’s student paper and then in an op-ed in the Washington Post, intelligently...

    The Denver City Council has stalled a deal to renew the lease of a Chick-fil-A restaurant at Denver International Airport, citing the company's reputation as an opponent of same-sex marriage. The Business Development Committee on Tuesday stalled the seven-year deal with a new franchise of the popular chicken chain for two weeks. "I think the airport also has a question about our reputation," said Robin Kniech, a Denver City Council Member, during Tuesday's meeting. "It has been the corporate philosophy [of Chik-fil-A] to use the dollars they earn to fund discriminatory lawsuits and to fund discriminatory political rhetoric. So that's...

On Thursday morning, a deputy clerk in her office refused to issue a marriage license to William Smith Jr. and James Yates. It was their third attempt to get a license. They said they will not give...

    The St. Mary's Academy board voted Wednesday night to change the school's policy on hiring gay employees after facing backlash over the administration's decision to rescind a job offer to a gay counselor. Students and high-profile donor Tim Boyle, CEO of Columbia Sportswear, had earlier condemned the choice not to employ 27-year-old Lauren Brown. In response, administrators brought the board together and recommended members vote to expand the hiring policy. . . . In July, the Roman Catholic high school reversed its plans to make Brown an academic adviser after learning she was gay, the job applicant said. Friedhoff said...

    For some gay activists, it had shades of bathhouse raids and gay-bar roundups from decades ago. On Tuesday, federal authorities burst into the Union Square office of the gay-escort website Rentboy.com and arrested the chief executive and several employees on prostitution charges. Rentboy, which federal authorities called the biggest male-escort website, had been around for almost two decades, allowing escorts to pay to advertise themselves. It was well known in the gay community, hosting pool parties, dances and awards shows throughout the country. ... Mr. Walls said: “As the investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security, ICE is responsible...

    Dinesh D’Souza, conservative author, movie-maker, columnist and pundit, took to Twitter to do some trolling on left-leaning pages and post some counter-views on the widely reported shooting deaths of two white television crew members by a black man – even suggesting President Obama better stand on the side of blind justice, not race-based politics. In reference to Vester Flanagan, the black former television journalist whose on-air name was Bryce Williams, D’Souza tweeted: “When a black gay guy goes nuts and kills white people, is it safe to call it a DOUBLE hate crime?” Flanagan, prior to killing himself, was believed...
