  • Dozens of House Republicans object to gay rights language in NAFTA replacement deal

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/16/2018 | Sean Higgins
    A group of 45 House Republican lawmakers wrote President Trump Friday stating that they were "deeply concerned" by the inclusion of "sexual orientation and and gender identity language" in the U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement on trade. The representatives said the inclusion was "inappropriate and insulting to our national sovereignty" and urged Trump to remove the language. The letter suggests the president may loose some key Republican support when the deal, which would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, comes before before Congress for approval next year. "A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy," the GOP lawmakers wrote,...

    Are the Laws of the Universe Fine-Tuned for Life? By Korey Haynes | November 12, 2018 Humans have often looked at the night sky and wondered if there’s anyone else out there. But stare into that darkness long enough, and many wonder instead: how did we get here? What were the odds, in a universe so enormous and chaotic, that humans should have come to exist at all? Is life, let alone intelligent life, such a wildly improbable occurrence that we’re the only ones here? Or are we an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics?Life exists on Earth (assuming...

    Typhus is on the rise in Los Angeles, with its epicenter in downtown, where the citys sanitation officials are struggling to respond to the nearly two thousand cleanup requests they get from locals every month. Like San Francisco, LA is struggling to clean up city streets of human wastespecifically fecesdue to a lack of public restrooms and a growing homeless population. There was an average of 700 requests in the area in the spring of 2016, but officials now claim they receive about 1,900 cleanup calls per month thanks to the number of growing homeless camps. But the growing homelessness...

    A bridal magazine has announced it will close just months after it sparked outrage for refusing to feature same-sex weddings. Founders Luke and Carla Burrell, who are Christians, announced they would close White Magazine on Saturday after advertisers withdrew sponsorship. A farewell note published on White Magazine's website on Saturday said the couple had recently experienced 'a flood of judgement' and lost a number of advertisers. The Burrells became target of an intimidation campaign in which their staff were threatened and one individual warned their house would be burned down. 'We have had to recognise the reality that White Magazine...

    Democrat J.D. Ford pulled off a big upset Tuesday, unseating state Sen. Mike Delph, a Republican who has served the district since 2005. With two-thirds of precincts reporting, Ford held a 57 percent to 43 percent lead over Delph. I wanted District 29 to be heard and with our win tonight, they will be, Ford told fellow Democratic supporters Tuesday night. Now you have a voice in the Indiana General Assembly. Ford is thought to be Indianas first openly gay state lawmaker. Ladies and gentleman, we just made history and no one can take that from us, Ford said. It...

    The Christian publishers of an Australian bridal magazine are closing the publication after they were targeted over their choice not to feature same-sex weddings. White Magazine was started twelve years ago by Luke and Carla Burrell to celebrate love and commitment in marriage, rather than as a marketplace to sell products. The magazine was targeted by LGBTQ activists after it did not feature any same sex couples following the change in the law last year.

    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A 10-year-old DeKalb County boy says his gym teacher forced him to stand in the cold and rain for more than 30 minutes as a form of punishment. And he didn't have a jacket. The boy's mother is furious and wants answers. She said her sons teacher made him wait up against the wall on a day where it was around 41 degrees and pouring rain outside. Everybody saw me like soaked, the boy said. The boy described pulling his hands up into his shirt and holding his fists under his chin and biting his fingers...

    Persecution of LGBTQ+ people by a Tanzanian governor appears to have resulted in Denmark withdrawing millions of kroner in aid to the developing country. Minister for International Development Ulla Trns said in parliament this week that the government will withhold 65 million kroner which was scheduled to be paid to the east African country this year. I am very concerned over the negative developments in Tanzania, most recently with the completely unacceptable homophobic statements from a commissioner, Trns, who did not name the official in question, said. Respect for human rights is one of the most important priorities in Denmarks...

    An answer has finally arrived. Not the answer vainly expected - from Pope Francis, but a significant one nevertheless, from a journalist who is part of his close entourage. The author is Andrea Tornielli, the Vatican reporter for La Stampa, in charge of the website Vatican Insider. Along with the journalist Gianni Valente, he just published The Day of Judgment, an extensive paper on the Vigan case, with the eloquent subtitle: Conflicts, power struggles, abuses and scandals. What is really happening in the Church (Edizioni Piemme, 255 pp.). Torniellis main thesis is that Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigans testimony on...

    On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal across the U.S., declaring that refusing to do so would violate the Constitution. Shortly after the high courts landmark decision, the Obama administration celebrated by lighting the White House in rainbow colors. Now, more than three years after that historic Obergefell v. Hodges ruling, former first lady Michelle Obama revealed that she and her daughter Malia, then 16, snuck out of the White House that night to join in on the fun happening outside their residence. Obama also recounted the story in her appearance Thursday on The Ellen...

    A group of LGBT migrants arrived in Tijuana this weekend after reportedly breaking off from the larger U.S.-bound caravan due to verbal harassment and poor living conditions. About 76 LGBT members of the caravan, which has about 3,600 members, described inter-caravan persecution and poor planning interfering with the members' ability to eat and bathe on a regular basis, according to Telemundo 20 in San Diego. Even taking a bath was a major problem, a caravan member who is Honduran told Telemundo. When we wanted to shower there was no water for usfor food it was the same thing. An anonymous...

Republican Senate leaders had an election today, and that determined who the new leaders for the Republican majority in the Senate are. Fine and dandy. While that is going on, in Palm Beach County theyre gonna have to start their recount over because the voting machines overheated. The caravan has reached the southern border in Tijuana. I thought that was just an election stunt created by Trump? Remember the media telling us there was...

    Six men filed a class action and racketeering lawsuit Tuesday against the Vatican and Americas Catholic bishops, arguing they were aware of but ignored evidence of rape and sexual abuse within the clergy. The 80-page complaint, filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., asks a judge to order a personal apology from the church hierarchy to abuse victims, to demand a full public accounting of all cases dating back to 1940, and to compensate victims and create a medical monitoring fund to help in recovery. The plaintiffs all say they were abused when they were children attending churches from...

    A Florida school district allowed a self-described transgender female student regular access to the boys locker room, with no advance warning to the boys or their parents. The first time she walked in, she caught boys (literally) with their pants down, causing them embarrassment and concern by the fact that they had been observed changing by an obvious girl, says a complaint letter to Pasco County School District from Liberty Counsel, a pro-bono constitutional law firm. With a gag order, school administrators forbade teachers from talking about the change, and ordered a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed...

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...
