    (AP) – Britain’s vote to leave the European Union has reverberated through London’s boisterous LGBT pride festival. The flags of European nations flew at the annual Pride in London parade, which ended with a rally in Trafalgar Square. London Mayor Sadiq Khan told the crowd of thousands that Europeans in London are “our friends, our families and our neighbors.” Khan says “I recognize the huge contribution you make to our city, you are welcome here. I make you this promise as your mayor. That won’t change.” Voters in London overwhelmingly supported staying in the EU, but a majority outside the...

    Roland Emmerich has a problem. A very gay problem. You may know Emmerich as the guy that directs ridiculous summer blockbusters where all sorts of landmarks get all sorts of blowed up. Independency Day, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012. He specializes in wholesale destruction. You might even call it apocalypse-porn. What you might not know is the Emmerich himself is gay, a fact that’s only really been talked about for the last 10 years or so, and even then not so much. He’s made a few donations to gay film organizations, but apart from that the closest thing he’d ever...

    Black Lives Matter Bay Area and other organizations said Friday that they will not participate in this weekend’s San Francisco Pride Parade due to increased policing in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting. Black Lives Matter, which was to be an organizational grand marshal for the parade themed “For Racial and Economic Justice,” cited concerns over the San Francisco Police Department’s “recent track record of racist scandal and killings of people of color” and how first responders can be a source of harm to “queer communities of color.” “The Black Lives Matter network is grateful to the people of...

I urge any FREEPers who use credit responsibly to do the same.

    President Barack Obama created the first national monument to gay rights on Friday, designating the site of the Stonewall riots in Manhattan where the modern gay rights movement took root nearly five decades ago. The Stonewall National Monument will be anchored by Christopher Park, a small park just across from the iconic Stonewall Inn tavern, and covers a 7.7 acre swath of Greenwhich Village where the uprising took place after police raided the gay bar in 1969. Obama said the monument would "tell the story of our struggle for LGBT rights" and of a civil rights movement that became a...

    On June 28, 1969, patrons at a gay bar in New York City's West Village neighborhood decided they had finally had enough after yet another police raid. As the NYPD attempted to enforce a law making it illegal to serve alcohol to "homosexuals," the resistance of the bar patrons turned into an uprising - the Stonewall Uprising - an event now widely credited with sparking the modern LGBTQ rights movement in the U.S. Now, nearly 50 years later, that same location - where members of the community stood up to government injustice - has been designated a new national monument...

Well, does anyone still believe that? I don't think so. But let's talk about what does trickle down - something never talked about by the corporate elite and something that has been missing from most if not all major media and the presidential debates - with a little exception on the part of Bernie Sanders....

    Two professors at the University of Northern Colorado were investigated after students complained that they were forced to hear opposing viewpoints. One professor instructed his students to read an article from the Atlantic written by Foundation for Individual Rights in Education's president Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt titled "The Coddling of the American Mind." The article explains that allowing students to hide from controversial and upsetting ideas (like through the use of "safe spaces" or "trigger warnings") actually harms those students by not allowing them to confront those opinions. After reading the article, the professor asked his students...

    For more than thirty years now I have been an observer and sometime participant in what I will here call the conservative Episcopalian mess. The departure of more orthodox Episcopalians from an apostatizing mainstream headed by weak and clownish English archbishops and astoundingly aggressive heretics in North America, contained no real surprises, for this is the predictable fruit of religious liberalism hatched upon an ignorant, passive, and venal laity, that we have seen in other major Protestant churches, and from which modern Roman Catholicism, especially under a Nice Pope, is unlikely to be much of a refuge.

    After weeks of indecision, ABC announced on May 12 that it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom "The Real O'Neals," which is loosely based on the childhood of zealously gay sex columnist Dan Savage. But then, Noah Galvin, the 22-year-old gay actor who plays the gay son, Kenny, gave an interview to New York Magazine's Vulture blog that was so rude that The Hollywood Reporter said ABC is considering its options, like reducing the number of episodes ordered for season 2. An executive producer who spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take...

    A leading cardinal has said the Catholic Church should apologise to the gay community for its scandalous and terrible treatment of them, which had not changed until “very recently”. Speaking in Dublin, Cardinal Reinhard Marx said: “The history of homosexuals in our societies is very bad because we’ve done a lot to marginalise [them].” As church and society “we’ve also to say ‘sorry, sorry’ ”. The German cardinal is a member of the council of nine cardinals chosen by Pope Francis to advise him. Until “very recently”, the church, but also society at large, had been “very negative about gay...

Well, the results are in, and the left isn't looking too great. When this nation was first experiencing the AIDS scare, liberals were adamant that we had to saturate the culture with condoms for teens to prevent the spread of the deadly disease. They ignored warnings that this massive giveaway program would publicly sanction and, thus, encourage teen promiscuity. They rejected reports that condoms are hardly...

    A federal appeals court in Richmond has ruled that a transgender high school student who was born as a female can sue his school board on discrimination grounds because it banned him from the boys’ bathroom. In backing high school junior Gavin Grimm, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit deferred to the U.S. Education Department’s position that transgender students should have access to the bathrooms that match their gender identities rather than being forced to use bathrooms that match their biological sex. The department has said that requiring transgender students to use a bathroom that corresponds with...

    For the past three weeks, Target’s purchase consideration levels have been moving around the three-year low mark, coinciding with its April 19th announcement regarding transgender use of bathrooms and fitting rooms. This may indicate rough sales waters ahead for the retailer. The drop in purchase consideration is not as steep as the one Target took after its late 2013 data breach. The retailer’s new low was likely made easier that according to YouGov BrandIndex’s consumer metrics, it never fully recovered to pre-breach levels in the first place. Looking back to the first month after the late 2013 data breach, Target...

    The Halton Catholic school board voted four to one Tuesday night to adopt a policy update on disciplining students for “homophobia … and harassment on the basis of sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation” which critics say will see students suspended or expelled for stating Catholic teaching on homosexuality and gender theory. The vote itself was a procedural violation since trustees had already voted down the “progressive discipline” policy update last month by a vote of 4 to 3. Trustee Anthony Danko argued vehemently at the June 21 meeting — to no avail — that to reintroduce the policy in...

On the same day President Barack Obama announced his controversial transgender school bathroom policy last month, a somewhat more sinister mandate was finalized by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with consequences for health care providers, insurance companies, and American taxpayers. The rule contains an explicit definition of gender identity that states a person can claim to be male, female, neither, both,...

The criminal proceedings against Cardinal Antonio Cańizares of Valencia were dismissed without further investigation because the magistrate saw no “criminal intent” nor an appeal to “hatred and violence” in the homily delivered by the prelate on May 13. “The family is haunted today, in our culture, by an endless threat of serious difficulties, and this is not...

Ryan labeled a high-profile stunt that undermined the basic institutions of government. Mr. Ryan said he was “not going to allow stunts like this to stop us from carrying out the people’s business.” He added, “This is about a publicity stunt and now a fund-raising scheme.” But on legislative business, it was Mr. Ryan who prevailed. He personally reclaimed control of the House, pounding his gavel and muscling through a major appropriations bill that included funding for combating the Zika virus, without debate.

On Father’s Day the Boston Globe, the major newspaper in New England, featured a lavish front-page article about a father who had “transitioned to a female”. There was an accompanying article by his son – a Boston Globe videographer – who describes that he is now accepting his father’s new “gender” after years of horrible anguish that even caused the son to change his last name. The articles are laden with sentiments of “tolerance” and “acceptance.” But they can’t avoid mentioning the years...

    Two teens raised by a lesbian couple and attending a Catholic school in Edmonton, Alberta have complained against a religion teacher for allegedly telling the students in class that homosexuals can’t reproduce and that they are not married according to Catholic teaching. The Edmonton Catholic school board has now removed the teacher from the school - temporarily, at least for the time being - and launched an investigation into the allegations. When students Tayler and Tyrus Allen told their mom, Elyssa Allen, and her partner Leigh Sylvester, to whom she is legally married, about the class given by 32-year veteran...

    The NYPD is supporting gay pride with a new rainbow colored patrol vehicle. The SUV was apparently painted for the city’s gay pride parade Sunday in Manhattan and carries a message of support for Orlando in the wake of the country’s largest mass shooting incident earlier this month.

    Missouri has its first openly gay Miss Missouri, and she will represent the state at the Miss America pageant later this year. Erin O’Flaherty, 23, was crowned Miss Missouri on Saturday in Mexico, Missouri, and is the first openly gay woman to be named Miss Missouri, said Ann Jolly, chairman of the board of the Miss Missouri Scholarship Organization. O’Flaherty said Wednesday in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that she came out as gay when she was 18, competed openly and knew going into the Miss Missouri pageant that she’d be making history if she won. …

    PORTLAND, Ore. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A circuit court judge has ruled an Oregon man can legally identify as "gender binary." Following a decision passed down by the Multnomah County judge, 52-year-old Jamie Shupe has become the first individual in the country to attain the legal classification of being neither male nor female. "I have my life back," Shupe stated after the court ruling last week. "I'm not a male. I'm not a female." The decision is being lauded by gay activist organizations, who argue "classic gender markers don't fit everybody," and the court decision will serve to help people "exist without...

    FULL TITLE: Valencia’s Card. Cañizares persecuted for defending nature, common sense against “gender theory”, homosexualist agenda I was in Spain recently, having breakfast – as one does – and, while munching the ubiquitous toast with tomato looked up at the TV only to see a discussion of Card. Canizares Llovera and the trouble he was in for giving what sounded like a really good sermon in Valencia.I shot a photo of the screen… it I can find it… Since then the Cardinal’s problems have multiplied. BTW… he had the nickname “Ratzingerino” for a while and had served as the Prefect...

    On a cool spring day at the Capitol, Toni Atkins delivered a series of blows unlike anything the tobacco industry had ever felt in California. Then speaker of the Assembly, the San Diego Democrat had been a lame duck for the last six months since the house elected Anthony Rendon to replace her. It was a Thursday morning in March and her final session as speaker, a tenure that lasted just shy of a year and 10 months. In a series of quick votes, the Assembly passed six smoking bills, the most significant of which raised the age to buy...
  • Speaking different languages on gun control

    We've all heard former Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan's admonition that "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts." Yet the public debate about guns in America takes Moynihan's warning to the next level: Each side not only has its own facts, it has its own language. For instance, take the rush after the recent Orlando shootings to ban "assault" or "military-style" weapons like the AR-15 rifle. Gun control advocates immediately jumped to regulate sales of "automatic weapons" and "assault rifles" like the AR-15, which they deem too deadly for one individual to need. Scary stories about...

    Transgender: The American “hot button” du jour. Even as I type this article, Dr. Phil is on the TV in the background, interviewing a man who is sobbing over the pain he feels with his adult son transitioning to female. He feels that “someone has got him;” that “something has come over” his son. He absolutely cannot accept his son as anything other than male. He is shaking and seething as Dr. Phil says, “We’re going to soon meet ‘Steph’,” (the man’s trans daughter, who wishes to debut as her “authentic self” on national TV). Earlier today, Kathie Lee &...

    Instead of announcing a program to teach young Muslims why they should reject the understanding of Islam held by the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and other jihad groups, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a press conference Monday to unveil its latest cynical and deceptive report on “Islamophobia” in the U.S. The whole “Islamophobia” enterprise is designed to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with opposing jihad terror, and this new report is no different. A few seconds of thought would expose the deceptiveness of it to anyone, but Hamas-linked CAIR is banking on the fact that...
