    New York’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade capitulates in a two-decade-long dispute with gay groups. One of New York City’s longest-running civic and political battles came to an end this week, not with a bang but a whimper. The organizers of the New York City Saint Patrick’s Day Parade announced that they would allow the Lavender and Green Alliance—a group composed of gay, lesbian, and transgender people of Irish descent— to participate in the annual march up Fifth Avenue. The group’s application to join the parade had been denied every year since 1994 due, parade organizers said, to its advocacy of...

    Melissa and Aaron Klein of Oregon, who were ordered by a state agency to pay two women $135,000 after they refused to take part in their same-sex wedding plans, may now face seizure of their assets. An administrative judge fined the couple after they declined to bake a cake for the lesbian couple, citing their religious objections. The fine was ordered by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, which had accused the Klein couple of violating the Oregon Equality Act of 2007. According to reports, the agency is docketing the judgement and is exploring various options for collection.Docketing the...

    Big news this week as “progressives” worldwide learned, to their utter shock and mournful consternation, that the pope is Catholic. Rumors are they will next examine wild bears, the woods and certain mysteries therein. On Wednesday the Vatican confirmed what a handful of us knew days before. Pope Francis secretly (and privately) met with Kim Davis at Washington’s Vatican Embassy to personally offer his broad support for her bold stand against that insidious and “intrinsically disordered” counterfeit called “gay marriage.” Does Pope Francis really support Kim Davis? While specifics of Davis’ legal case were not discussed during the private meeting,...

    Liberty Counsel, a law firm representing Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, has been termed as hate group for spreading false information by a nonprofit legal advocacy group, the Associated Press reported Sunday. The Southern Poverty Law Center’s senior official Mark Potok said that people at the firm "are way, way over the line" according to AP. The law firm is representing Davis’ stance for not issuing marriage licenses to homosexuals on religious grounds. Davis also spent five days in prison last month after being found in contempt of court for denying the licenses. The Liberty Counsel is reportedly of the opinion...

    Pope Francis told a Roman Catholic meeting on family issues on Monday that the Church should not be a stuffy "museum of memories" but have the courage to change if that was what God wanted. Francis urged bishops at the start of a three-week gathering, known as a synod, to humbly empty themselves of conventions and prejudices. They should not "point fingers at the others to judge them" or feel superior to those with different ideas. In a passage that appeared to be directed at unbending traditionalists, the pope said bishops should beware the "hardening of some hearts, which despite...

They are us," Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC) intoned, speaking before the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the leading group supporting homosexual men, lesbians, bisexuals, "gender fluids," transvestites, and probably more.

The dossier of three hundred pages handed over by Benedict XVI to Jorge Bergoglio gathers dust but the truth will come out along with coming out of these sodomite moles into the light where they can no longer hide. „Jestem gejem. Dumnym i szczęśliwym księdzem gejem”. Coming out księdza...

    A week after Pope Francis met Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk jailed for her refusal to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples, the Vatican on Friday suggested that she exploited the meeting to promote her views, denied that the pope fully supports her and cast doubt on her account of the encounter. The Vatican later noted that the only “audience” Francis had at the gathering in Washington was with a former student of the pope, Yayo Grassi, an openly gay Argentine who along with his longtime partner and some friends met with Francis. Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi said...
  • Vatican: ‘Pope Francis’ meeting with Kim Davis not a show of support

    The Vatican says Pope Francis’ meeting with Kim Davis “should not be considered a form of support of her position.” Kim Davis, the Rowan County clerk who became a grassroots conservative hero after refusing to issue gay marriage licenses, was one of “several dozen” individuals invited by the Vatican ambassador to meet with Francis at the embassy in Washington last week, said spokesman Federico Lombardi. “The Pope did not enter into the details of the situation of Mrs. Davis and his meeting with her should not be considered a form of support of her position in all of its particular...

    Pope Francis' meeting last week with an American woman at the center of a row over gay marriage was not something he had sought and should not be seen as an endorsement of her views, the Vatican said on Friday. One Vatican official said there was "a sense of regret" that the pope had ever seen Kim Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who went to jail in September for refusing to honor a U.S. Supreme Court ruling and issue same-sex marriage licenses. The encounter in Washington was originally kept secret and has sparked widespread debate since it became public this...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 2, 20015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Hours after the Vatican distanced itself from embattled Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, CNN has reported Pope Francis met privately with a gay couple and their friends while in the U.S. "Three weeks before the trip, he called me on the phone and said he would love to give me a hug," Yayo Grassi told CNN. Grassi was a student of Pope Francis' in the 1960s in Argentina. In its statement this morning about the pope’s meeting with Kim Davis, the Vatican press office had said that Davis was just one of a large...

    Poland has witnessed a heated discussion on the “huge homosexual underground in the Church”, provoked by the most recent book by F. Tadeusz Isakowicz-Zaleski…Along the road, members of the homo-clique can achieve such positions and influence that they come to believe they have extraordinary powers and will go unpunished forever. Their life often becomes a diabolic caricature of priesthood, just like homosexual relationships are a caricature of marriage. As can be learned from the media, for instance, they act like homosexual addicts, becoming more and more unbridled, resorting to violence. They start to molest and abuse even minors. A grievous...

    Did you know that describing the state of pregnancy as being solely applicable to women is considered offensive?  No, dear reader, neither did I, until I read this earnestly written column, stating that transphobia is rampant in the midwifery world.Up until 2014, the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) had, sensibly and reasonably enough, referred to their clients as women and mothers. Then at some point last year, presumably having imbibed the gender theory Kool-Aid at some diversity conference or other, they changed most of the language in their core competency documents to reflect the notion that some transgender, gender queer...

    Vice President Biden would have immediate, strong support within the LGBT community should he decide to run for president. Several top Democrats believe Biden could pull support away from front-runner Hillary Clinton in large part due to his early support for same-sex marriage, a claim Clinton supporters strongly dispute. Biden on Saturday will have a prime opportunity to appeal to LGBT voters when he delivers the keynote speech at the annual gala of the Human Rights Campaign, the most influential gay rights group in the country. Before that, Clinton is scheduled to have breakfast with the group’s leaders but she...

    As Donald Trump has stated, without rebuttal, Obama is conducting a War On Christians. Did Obama's Christian-hating words and deeds motivate this killer to strike against Obama's enemies, the Christians? Perhaps you should resign immediately, Mr. "president".

    RUSH: What do we get from the White House? "The White House is reaching out to the transgender community for a list of things that its members want as they follow their lifestyle choices." Well, it's obvious here, ladies and gentlemen, this White House has their priorities in order. "The initiative was launched with the help of White House Chief Data Scientist DJ Patil, who expressed concern that there is very little data of what the transgender community needs from the government." Why does the transgender community need anything from the government? I mean, why does anybody need -- I...
