  • Gay Confederates: What's the Left to Do?

    7/6/15 | Robert W Hamilton Jr.
    The Supreme Court’s extra-constitutional decision to make same-sex marriage legal across all 50 states is not without its unintended consequences. Take for example this interesting conundrum: There was a rally to be held over the July 4th holiday weekend in the parking lot of a Walmart in a small town in South Carolina, home of the now-nationally-despised Confederate flag, a rally to show support for said item. In a small parade of vehicles carrying the flag, some were hoisting a second. One of these other flags just happened to be Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition flag. You know the one, the...

    The Imaginative Conservative ^ | 6 July 2015 | Joseph Pearce
    The Supreme Court’s bizarre decision to impose same-sex “marriage” on all the States is the making of history by the breaking of history. It is to make something that humanity has never sanctioned and has always shunned not only legal but compulsory. Until a few short years ago, the very thought that marriage was anything other than the union of a man and a woman would have been impossible because the very thought would have been unthinkable. The Supreme Court has, therefore, divorced itself from the collective experience of humanity as manifested in the continuum of moral norms that are...

    During Pride festivities in the United States last weekend, tears flowed as freely as the celebratory libations, and pure joy mixed with utter disbelief following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage across the country – an accomplishment that seemed preposterous only a few years ago. The victory, of course, derives from decades of struggle and strategy, pain and persistence.“As a marriage equality activist since the 1980s, I prayed and worked to see this day,” said Rabbi Denise Eger, the founding rabbi of Congregation Kol Ami in West Hollywood, California, and the newly appointed, first openly gay president of...

    The Week ^ | July 6, 2015 | Michael Brendan Dougherty
    The Supreme Court's landmark decision that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right brought out an avalanche of commentary about the possibility of polygamy. Indeed, a Montana threesome is already suing for the right to marry. This shouldn't be surprising. But what is surprising is just how weak the arguments against legal polygamy are. They rely on class and religious prejudices, as well as on rationales that were deemed illegitimate when launched at same-sex couples. Jonathan Rauch, who did more than almost anyone else to mainstream the cause of same-sex marriage, finds the argument for polygamy an unfortunate distraction. Rauch's main...

    The Supreme Court decision allowing gay “marriage” in the United States has upset all right minded Christians, and rightly so. It is pretty clear that the Supreme Court has rubber stamped a widespread rejection of Christian morality by a large segment of the American people. Not only has the Supreme Court ratified same sex “marriage” but they have overturned majority opinions of the people, set themselves up as arbiters of human morality, trampled on states’ rights, ignored not only historic Christian teaching, but the understanding of marriage held by all people at all times and in all cultures down through...

    Catholic World Report ^ | May 14, 2015 | TYLER BLANSKI
    Why are so many straight people pro gay? Because the normalization of homosexuality is the premier achievement of heterosexual ideology. “Gay” and “straight” are not taxonomies but ideologies. They are not orientations but disorientations: whether bi-, homo-, or hetero-, hyphenated sexuality makes us lose our sense of direction toward the truly sexual, and the victims of such ideology are children.The words “homosexual” and “heterosexual” are nineteenth-century neologisms made to sever romance from responsibility and sex from fecundity. “Heterosexuality was made to serve as this fanciful framework’s regulating ideal,” writes Michael Hannon, summarizing Foucault, “preserving the social prohibitions against sodomy...

Frans Timmermans, the vice president of the European Commission, said it was a "disgrace" that some European countries do not recognise same-sex partnerships formed elsewhere in the union. The Commission, the executive arm of the EU, should lobby for same-sex marriages across the 28-nation bloc, he said. It follows calls from campaigners for same-sex relationships to be enshrined under EU freedom of movement rules. ...

    Like many people at the Supreme Court last month, I was deeply moved by the historic ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges recognizing the constitutional right of same-sex couples to marry. At such a transcendent moment, it is difficult to do anything but celebrate the triumph of what Justice Anthony Kennedy called the “dignity” and “profound hopes and aspirations” of the many loving couples who had been denied the recognition of marriage. But Kennedy’s moving language was more than just aspirational thoughts on dignity. He found a right to marriage based not on the status of the couples as homosexuals but...

    “To learn who rules over you, find out whom you are not allowed to criticize.”— Voltaire If you’re wondering what Americans can do as our ruling class sets about enforcing its redefinition of marriage, start by looking back at what it did to the citizens of Indiana when their legislature raised the possibility that someone might object to joining in celebrations of homosexual marriage. Support for homosexual unions was incidental to the insistence of the likeminded folks atop society’s commanding heights on punishing Indiana. What incurs their ire has less to do with any substantive matter than with the...

    On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which concerned whether same-sex marriage is a right protected by the U.S. Constitution. Although the case did not address the right to bear arms, some pro-gun advocates began debating whether the Court’s reasoning and analysis had application to national concealed carry licensing reciprocity. This is a reasonable question. If states that formerly did not sanction same-sex marriage now have to recognize all marriages from states that do, shouldn’t that also mean restrictive “may issue” concealed carry jurisdictions have to recognize concealed carry...

    The GOP-controlled Senate is on track this year to confirm the fewest judges since 1969, a dramatic escalation of the long-running partisan feud over the ideological makeup of federal courts. The standoff, if it continues through the 2016 elections as expected, could diminish the stamp that President Barack Obama leaves on the judiciary — a less conspicuous but critical part of his legacy. Practically, the makeup of lower-level courts could directly affect a number of Obama’s policies expected to face legal challenges from conservatives. Republicans appear willing to absorb criticism that they’re interfering with the prerogative of a president to...

The new policy won overwhelming approval from the top Episcopal legislative body Wednesday, following decades of debate and conflict. It came 12 years after the denomination blazed a trail by electing the first openly gay bishop. "To finally get to this day is an incredible moment," said the Rev. Cynthia Black, of Morristown, New Jersey, a lesbian who has been campaigning for gay acceptance...

    Despite the Supreme Court’s repeated attempts to prop it up, Obamacare is collapsing. This is obvious not merely to the majority of Americans who have always disapproved of the law, but also to an increasing number of progressives. Consequently, we are once again hearing calls for single-payer health care. Most advocates of this system, including Hillary Clinton’s main competitor for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination, favor Medicare-for-All. They want, in other words, to put all Americans on the government program that covers the elderly and disabled. An excellent antidote for this simplistic solution is David Hogberg’s new book, Medicare’s Victims:...

    Radio host Mark Levin’s new book warns America about the impending crisis that will doom the next generation: ... Levin’s sixth book is a “fire bell in the night” to our nation, especially its young people, about the attack on liberty and prosperity and the coming crisis, manufactured by a Leviathan-like government, that threatens to swallow future generations. The power of Levin’s book is in his taking virtually every major problem facing the country — the debt, entitlements, open immigration, radical environmentalism, education, minimum wage, national security, the Constitution, and others — and compellingly laying out the case against big...

    It wasn’t like we didn’t see this coming but it’s certainly arriving faster and harder than even some of the more conservative estimates would have predicted. Now that gay marriage (or just any old marriage if you prefer) is a “constitutionally assured right” in the United States, Left side proponents are taking their victory laps. But at the same time they’re going to stick to the established talking points of telling everyone not to worry… nothing bad is going to happen to anyone else. You’re just not adjusted to the New and Improved Post-Homophobic Christianity. (From the Daily Beast) The...

    The speaker of the US House of Representatives, John Boehner, has told a Dublin audience of his determination to overcome Republican resistance to immigration reform. Mr. Boehner also told how Taoiseach Enda Kenny has harangued him on the matter, telling him how the lack of reform has left some Irish immigrants listening to a parent’s funeral by phone. His remarks indicate he may yet move to confront opponents of reform within his own Republican party, which is in the vanguard of resistance to it and has a majority in the House. […] Imitating Mr. Kenny, Mr. Boehner said he was...

    One measure of the decline of mainline social justice activism can be found in a recent Facebook exchange between the Methodist civil rights leader Maxie Dunnam and the Methodist civil rights official Bill Mefford. Dunnam was a heroic opponent of Jim Crow as a young pastor in Mississippi and went on to become the president of Asbury Theological Seminary. He also happens to believe in the historic Christian understanding of marriage, so in response to Obergefell v. Hodges, he made the following post on his Facebook wall:To which Mefford, the “Director of Civil and Human Rights” for the United...

    The Affordable Care Act has weathered its share of punches in recent weeks, including a Supreme Court challenge that could have led to its unraveling. Its next bout could hit consumers in the pocketbook. In Florida, several big-name insurance providers — including Aetna, Cigna, Coventry and United Healthcare — have already proposed double-digit rate increases for individual health insurance plans, federal records show. The figures are not final, and they represent only a slice of the plans available on the individual insurance market. (Companies requesting single-digit hikes don't have to publish their rates until later in the year.) But experts...

    “To learn who rules over you, find out whom you are not allowed to criticize.” — Voltaire If you’re wondering what Americans can do as our ruling class sets about enforcing its redefinition of marriage, start by looking back at what it did to the citizens of Indiana when their legislature raised the possibility that someone might object to joining in celebrations of homosexual marriage. Support for homosexual unions was incidental to the insistence of the likeminded folks atop society’s commanding heights on punishing Indiana. What incurs their ire has less to do with any substantive matter than with the...

    The Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the country is the end of the legal discussion on the topic, at least for now. It isn’t, however, the end of the discussion on marriage. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion rests on four principles, which according to him “demonstrate that the reasons marriage is fundamental under the Constitution apply with equal force to same-sex couples.” His first and third principles raise some intriguing possibilities, and his fourth principle opens the floodgates to a world of fun. The first premise of this Court’s relevant precedents is that the right to personal choice...

    Imagine that, another phony hate crime. A Utah man who alleged assailants carved homophobic slurs into his arms, robbed his pizza restaurant and firebombed his house has admitted faking the attacks, authorities said. Now the question is whether Rick Jones, 22, of Delta will be prosecuted for reporting false crimes, Millard County Sheriff Robert Dekker told CNN affiliate KSL. “The investigation has come to an end today with the admission of Richard (Rick) L. Jones Jr. to having staged all of the incidents,” the Sheriff’s Office and County Attorney’s office said in a Tuesday statement. Dekker said he didn’t know...
