  • Liberal Law Center Demonizes Christian Foes of LGBTQ Agenda as ‘Hate Groups’

    August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — In the vast array of leftist lies, one of the most dangerous is that groups and people defending historic Judeo-Christian sexual morality are somehow guilty of "hate." The main perpetrator of that “big lie” these days is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which has turned smearing and demonizing social conservatives fighting the homosexual-transgender agenda into a very profitable business. The SPLC is attempting to pull off one of the nastiest and most audacious “bait-and-switch” propaganda coups in history — equating the Christian-conservative led effort to defend biblical morality against the aggressive LGBTQ lobby with...

    After advising on social media that his farm wouldn’t host same-sex wedding ceremonies, Steve Tennes was blocked from participating in a farmers’ market in East Lansing, Michigan.CHARLOTTE, Mich. — What happens when a Catholic farmer runs afoul of a city ordinance that bars discrimination based on sexual orientation? Steve Tennes, who owns Country Mill farm and also hosts weddings on his property, found out earlier this year when the city of East Lansing blocked him from participating in a municipal farmers’ market after he refused to allow weddings for same-sex couples at his orchard venue. The East Lansing Farmer’s Market,...

    Grant: Alcohol is 'integral component of bars and clubs'! The National Institutes of Health is spending over $400,000 studying whether gender norms of masculinity and femininity lead LGBTQ individuals to drink too much. Trying to find the "meanings of intoxication" of sexual and gender minorities is the central question of a study that was awarded in late July. The project will "examine the extent to which gendered norms shape risky drinking practices for sexual and gender minority (SGM) young adults," according to the grant for the study. The grant states that alcohol is an "integral component of bars and clubs."...

    If you had argued pre-Obergefell that de-sexing marriage would lead to drag queens leading preschool storytime in public libraries and public schools hounded into hiding their mandatory sex ed curriculum from parents after a settlement requiring trans-friendly “education” starting in kindergarten, you would have been called an unhinged bigot. How could what two consenting adults do privately have any effect on whether five-year-olds are told they should consider cutting off their penises? Preposterous. Fear-mongering. Wild-eyed insanity. Or not. Rod Dreher’s “Law of Merited Impossibility” strikes again: “It will never happen, and when it does, you bigots will deserve it.” As...

    24 Hours Vancouver ^ | July 30, 2017 | Brent Stafford
    This week's question: Should transgender people be allowed to serve in the Canadian military? On Friday former premier Christy Clark resigned as leader of the B.C. Liberal Party and Kelowna MLA. Her downfall at the polls and subsequent departure from politics is largely a result of her abandoning long articulated principles. Many on the Left relished demonizing her and would never have voted for her. Yet, over the course of the 18 months preceding the May election Clark began pandering to the Left. Just before Vancouver’s annual Pride Parade in 2016 Clark suddenly abandoned the government’s principled position, which refused...

    With so many leaders in the Church in open rebellion to Her and Her divinely revealed teachings, it's worth alerting people to the treachery. Currently, in the English-speaking world at any given moment, you will find some combination of the following four priests, spreading error and sowing confusion anywhere they can gain an audience. And because of their influence in Church circles, they gain entrance to many many audiences. First, the big four are Fr. James Martin, Fr. Thomas Rosica, Fr. Bryan Massingale and Fr. Timothy Radcliffe. Combined, they form the leading edge of a public relations campaign to introduce...

    First bursting into the headlines when they shut down far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos in February at the University of California at Berkeley, antifascists again captivated the public imagination by battling the fascists assembled at the “Unite the Right” white power rally in Charlottesville. But what is antifa? Where did it come from? Militant anti-fascist or “antifa” (pronounced ANtifa) is a radical pan-leftist politics of social revolution applied to fighting the far right. Its adherents are predominantly communists, socialists and anarchists who reject turning to the police or the state to halt the advance of white supremacy. Instead they advocate popular...

    The second part of an exclusive interview with a high ranking former Google engineer who wishes to remain anonymous reveals the Google experience for conservative employees, and a surprising approach to gender in company restrooms. The former Google engineer (alias “Arthur”), worked at Google for several years in a relatively prominent position within the company. Breitbart News questioned Arthur about the treatment of conservatives at Google and the companies internal culture, described as an “ideological echo-chamber” by recently-fired employee James Damore. Read part one of the interview here. When asked if he worked alongside many conservatives Arthur stated that there...

    Chelsea Manning is making her Vogue debut. The former U.S. Army intelligence analyst, who served time in prison for leaking classified documents, will be featured in the magazine's September issue. She was photographed by the renowned Annie Leibovitz, who has taken pictures of President Barack Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, John Lennon, Michael Jackson and Caitlyn Jenner. Manning was convicted in 2013 for leaking reams of material to WikiLeaks. She was sentenced to 35 years in military prison but was released in May. Obama commuted her sentence days before he left office.
  • California Proposes Jail Time for Using the Wrong Pronoun for Transgenders

    08/17/2017 9:27:38 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 54 replies
    California is on its way to passing a new law that makes it illegal to call transgender senior citizens a pronoun they don't like. For example, if an elderly person who was born male and lives in a long-term care facility wishes to be called "her" or "she," the workers there had better do it or face the consequences. The proposed law would even apply to Christian facilities. SB 219, titled the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident's Bill of Rights," states, "It shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to.... willfully and...

    Waiting staff in the US rely heavily on their tips to make up for their low wages, but one server in Rockford, Illinois, was surprised to find the reason for the lack of a gratuity written on a receipt. "Can't tip someone who doesn't love Jesus! Bad tatoo [sic]" wrote the customer, instead of a tip, for Samantha Heaton, who bears rainbow-coloured equality bars on her arm, and has been serving at Buffalo Wild Wings for a year. "It was shocking. I couldn't help but feel hurt," Samantha told the BBC. "I would've openly discussed my tattoo with them, had...
  • Martin Luther King: Gays should "see a good psychiatrist" (vanity)

    Back in 1958 a gay male wrote Martin Luther King for advice. In his reply, King said that the gale male's orientation was a "problem", and was "culturally acquired". King then advised the young man to "see a good psychiatrist". (The full exchange is in my post #1.) King's remarks would absolutely horrify today's politically correct crowd. So here's my question: Should all statues of MLK be removed from public areas, or should his remarks be judged within the context of his time?

    Civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. once answered a question from a boy who was struggling to cope with his sexuality. The rights hero openly discussed homosexuality while writing an advice column for Ebony Magazine in 1958 – while the government was still openly discriminating against LGBT people. According to a transcript released by Stanford University, the boy asked: “My problem is different from the ones most people have. “I am a boy, but I feel about boys the way I ought to feel about girls. I don’t want my parents to know about me. What can I do?...

    “Does a state violate the First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause or Free Speech Clause when it punishes a judge who has discretionary authority to solemnize marriages because she states that her religious beliefs preclude her from performing a same-sex wedding?” That’s the question Judge Ruth Neely from Pinedale, Wyoming, wants the Supreme Court to answer. On August 4, she filed a petition with the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), asking them to review a March 7, 2017 ruling from the Wyoming Supreme Court. That ruling handed down a public censure and effectively removed her from a circuit court...

    We are now in the midst of yet another battle over real marriage versus fake marriage, and as is always the case, the other side seeks to make its case by copious amounts of falsehoods, misinformation, straw men and red herrings. It seems to simply make things up as it goes along. It will toss out the most reckless of charges, the most baseless of accusations, and the most illogical of claims. I have dealt with them time and time again. Let me look at one common objection thrown our way by the militants as we seek to defend marriage...

    A new report estimates banning transgender service members would set the U.S. back $960 million, challenging President Donald Trump's pro-ban argument about "the tremendous medical costs" associated with permitting transgender people to serve in the military. The report, co-authored by the Palm Center and current and retired professors at the Naval Postgraduate School, estimates the cost to replace transgender service members would be 100 times greater than current estimates for the annual cost of providing them transition-related care. "President Trump said that he wants to fire honorably serving transgender troops in order to save money, but that begs the question,...

    Congratulations to the media on finding the perfect model family to encourage us to emulate. From the land we once called Great Britain: They are raising four-year-old Star Cloud as a ‘person’ and are telling him to ‘not get hung up’ on being a boy. Parents Nikki and Louise Draven say they are ‘just ordinary’ and are being ‘who they want to be’. Star calls Louise, 31, his mummy, but she [sic] is in fact his biological father and is transitioning to become a woman with hormone treatment. His mother Nikki really is a woman. But… Nikki used to work...
