    On Saturday evening, as hundreds of bishops convened in Rome for a major church assembly on family issues, former Vatican priest Krzysztof Charamsa headed a mile across town to a different gathering: the founding meeting of the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics, a group of 13 organizations advocating for inclusion of gays in the church. Charamsa had lost his job just before, when he was fired from his position in the Vatican’s doctrine office after announcing that he was gay and introducing reporters to his boyfriend. “I want the Church and my community to know who I am: a gay...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Kim Davis' lawyer stood onstage in a Washington D.C. hotel and pointed to a photo on the screen. It showed 100,000 people packed into a Peruvian soccer stadium, Mat Staver told the crowd, all there to pray for the Kentucky clerk battling against gay marriage. The crowd erupted. It wasn't true.

    They’re Nigeria’s unlikely saviors – most being white, in their 50s and 60s and combat veterans of the former South African apartheid regime. But, tainted resumes notwithstanding, they’ve been getting the job done in northern Nigeria, hitting the Islamist terror group Boko Haram hard enough to send the jihadists into retreat, liberating dozens of villages and freeing hundreds of women and girls held as slaves and “bush wives” during a six-year-long reign of terror, reported London Telegraph. Boko Haram recently pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. In recent years, Boko Haram has slaughtered entire...

    Moldova. Orthodox Christians are protesting against the law prohibiting all forms of discrimination    The passage of Moldova’s anti-discrimination law was one of the requirements laid down by the European Union for the visa liberalization with the EU (visa-free travel of Moldovan citizens within the EU). From the outset, the discussion of this law in the Moldovan Parliament was marked by members of the public expressing mass, stormy protest, as they associated it with the legalization of same-sex “marriage” and the adoption of children by homosexuals. Nevertheless, on May 25, 2012, the law was passed and on December 26...

    Transgender activist, Caitlyn Jenner, recently shared her views on same-sex marriage during her first ever talk show appearance on the "Ellen DeGeneres" show and her lukewarm stance on the hot button issue surprised the host. Jenner, formerly known as Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, told DeGeneres, who is a fellow member of the LGBT community, that she identifies as a Republican Conservative. She said that while she once opposed same-sex marriage, her views have slowly "changed" although she still appeared to be somewhat unsure on the subject."I have to admit that I remember 15 years ago, 20 years ago, whenever...

Rather, I am talking about the kind of faith that Kim Davis has demonstrated.

For Kim Davis, deciding to take a stand meant that she was thrown into prison....

We have Blacks, Mexicans, Muslims and liberal Whites burning and stomping on our country’s flag and it’s not a problem. But if you burn a gay pride flag it’s a hate crime? What about the hate crimes committed against Whites in the so called ‘knock-out game’ where Blacks target Whites and savagely assault and beat the hell out of them? Those aren’t labeled hate crimes because it would be racist....

    Male homosexuality has stumped evolutionary biologists and psychologists for decades. According to evolutionary theory, the highest goal is to pass on one's genes, yet homosexual males will father no direct offspring without the help of surrogates. Moreover, homosexuality seems to be at least partially heritable and is relatively common in developed societies. Why would such an evolutionarily costly trait be so prevalent?Past studies have suggested that genes related to homosexuality might confer a mating advantage to heterosexuals expressing them, and that female relatives of homosexual males may receive a boost to fecundity. Evidence supporting those notions remains sparse, however. A...

First and Calvary Presbyterian Church, a Springfield congregation with approximately 1,700 members, voted 493 to 185 on Sunday in favor of disaffiliating with PCUSA. The Rev. Andrew Chaney, senior pastor at First and Calvary, told The Christian Post that his congregation voted following months of consideration. "First and Calvary Presbyterian Church voted to disaffiliate from the PCUSA because it felt that the PCUSA has drifted from its Reformed theological moorings," said Chaney.

    (VNRN) - Any new U.S. Ambassador will always attract the attention of Vietnamese everywhere, but when President Barack Obama nominated Asia pro Ted Osius, it generated a little more than the usual high interest. You see, Osius is openly gay. Regardless of whether the nominee’s sexual orientation was a factor, the nomination hopefully will usher in more LGBT rights in Vietnam. Certainly Osius is qualified to be ambassador. He has served as Deputy Chief of Mission before, in Indonesia from 2009 to 2012. For the past year, he has been an Associate Professor at the National War College. Osius had...

Negative national publicity forced them to shut down their bakery, Sweet Cakes by Melissa.

    President Obama has wrapped up his tour of Africa.

Certainly, Africa is not terribly gay-friendly. But nor are other parts of the planet. In his ardent wooing of Iran, for example, he doesn't seem to have been perturbed in the least by his new best friends' executions of homosexuals, anymore than he is by the brutalization of gays elsewhere in the Muslim world.

And if the mere awesomeness of his presence fails to change minds, Obama will attempt to humiliate his ideological adversaries into submission by getting in their face. For example, after Barack ‘LGBTQ’ Obama was specifically asked by the Evangelical Alliance...

The condition of moral decline is seen as preceding or concomitant with the decline in quality of life, as well as the decline of nations. In the words of British lawyer and jurist Judge Devlin (1905 -1992), "an established morality is as necessary as good government to the welfare of society. Societies disintegrate from within more frequently than they are broken up by external pressures."[1] Contents[] 1 Moral standards2 Causality 2.1 Biblical theology2.2 Secular ideology 3 Examples of development and decline...

The policy was uncovered by Liberty Counsel, which has sent a letter to Bob Hayter, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice, demanding that the state religious test be dropped and that a dismissed counselor be reinstated.“Liberty Counsel writes regarding the blatantly unconstitutional revocation of volunteer prison minister status of ordained Christian minister David Wells, who has provided voluntary...

But let me suggest to you this: The two greatest attacks of terror on America were perpetrated by the Supreme Court. Not by any Muslim, but by the Supreme Court of the United States. The first one was the legalizing of abortion. Subsequent to that, there have been millions of babies slaughtered in the wombs of their mothers. It’s incalculable to even comprehend that. The...

Are humans the only ones who practice homosexuality? And if this is so, does this mean that homosexuality is the product of humans personal whim as opposed to instinct?”Bill Nye basically answered this...

    President Vladimir Putin, former KGB agent of a once-atheist nation, rebukes America, a once-Christian nation by saying that by forsaking traditional Christian values and putting same-sex marriage on the same level as traditional marriage with a man, woman, and children, the nation is forsaking God and believing in Satan and will be led into degradation and chaotic darkness. At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.” More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian...

    It’s by design. As I, and others, have repeatedly warned, the establishment of so-called “gay marriage” as a newfangled federal “right,” and the free exercise of religion as guaranteed by the First Amendment simply cannot coexist in harmony. Things diametrically at odds cannot possibly occupy, with any coherence, the same time and space. The secular left is tripping over itself right now to prove my point. In the wake of last month’s Obergefell v. Hodges opinion – an opinion that somehow divined a top secret “constitutional right” for Patrick Henry to “marry” Henry Patrick – liberals are now demanding, as...

    The dirty little secret about gay marriage: Most gay couples are not monogamous. We have come to accept lately, partly thanks to Liza Mundy’s excellent recent cover story in the Atlantic and partly because we desperately need something to make the drooping institution of heterosexual marriage seem vibrant again, that gay marriage has something to teach us, that gay couples provide a model for marriages that are more egalitarian and less burdened by the old gender roles that are weighing marriage down these days. But the thorny part of the gay marriage experiment is sex, and more precisely, monogamous sex....
  • The Big Gay Lie: Few people understand how harmful the promiscuous gay lifestyle is

    While gays are our siblings in Christ, the gay lifestyle is nothing like the straight lifestyle. That’s why we have to condemn the gay lifestyle because we love gays as people, just as we condemn smoking out of love for smokers. One of the key reasons that gay “marriage” has won as much public support as it has is that few people understand how harmful the massively promiscuous gay lifestyle is.  The Big Gay Lie (BGL) is that the gay lifestyle is the same as the straight lifestyle. The BGL has a number of facets including: Lots of people are...
  • Boy Scouts Executive Committee Unanimously Votes To End Gay Leadership Ban

    WASHINGTON — A key leadership panel of the Boy Scouts of America voted unanimously last week to end the ban on gay leaders in scouting, the organization told local leaders on Monday. The move — raised as a necessary step by the organization’s head in May — came from the executive committee of the Boy Scouts on July 10. A vote of the full executive board is scheduled for July 27, at which point the change is immediately effective. The resolution passed by the committee does not require councils or troops to allow out gay leaders, but lifts the prior...

    For those unfamiliar with the NEA, it is the nation’s largest labor union – not just the largest teacher’s union, mind you. But the largest labor union in the country. Period. It has over three million members. Its mission is “to advocate for education professionals” blah, blah, blah. In other words, they are an organization of teachers who unite to demand more money, benefits, better work environments and whatever else they can get their hands on. They also advocate for just about any left-wing liberal cause that enrages conservatives, even if it has nothing to do with teaching. One of...

    One must understand that mandatory celibacy is not taught in the Bible, nor was it practiced by the apostles. This teaching developed as an integral part of the evolving papal system and gradually became essential to it. The concern was not morality, for celibacy proved to be a veritable cornucopia of evil. In fact, the rule of celibacy was not the prohibition of sex but of marriage. Pope Alexander II (1061-73), for example, refused to discipline a priest who had committed adultery with his father's second wife because he hadn't committed the sin of matrimony. That was the great evil...

     When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. -Luke 11:24-26

    If you consider yourself a Bible-believing Christian, a follower of Jesus whose chief aim is to glorify God and enjoy him forever, there are important questions I hope you will consider before picking up your flag and cheering on the sexual revolution. These questions aren’t meant to be snarky or merely rhetorical. They are sincere, if pointed, questions that I hope will cause my brothers and sisters with the new rainbow themed avatars to slow down and think about the flag you’re flying.
  • Homosexual Rapists and Murderers

    (Original title too long: Homosexuals In New Orleans Kidnap Young Boys, Bring Them Into A Gay Neighborhood, Horrifically Torture Them And Sodomize Them, And Then Murder Them) Homosexuals in New Orleans kidnapped young boys, brought them into their homosexual areas, tortured, sodomized them, and murdered them. I received this information from a colleague of ours, Jeremy Santos, who is one of the most fervent fighters against the sodomite agenda in America. While he was in Southern Decadence (one of the biggest rallies in the US), he met with a number of local Christians in the French Quarter, and they informed...
  • Homosexuality Has No Genetic Cause

    A genetic cause for homosexuality is not scientifically possible. A homosexuality gene, if it existed, would quickly die out. However, it gradually becomes clear that liberals and progressives are poorly-educated about science. They passionately believe in evolution, yet they don’t understand it. Public discussion is driven by an assumption that one may be “born homosexual.” Being ‘born’ homosexual is a medical impossibility unless there is a specific gene causing it. That is, heterosexuals would have one genetic DNA sequence while homosexuals have a different DNA sequence in its place. I discovered something debating this topic: One central point simply escapes...

    Almost before the ink was dry on the Supreme Court’s highly controversial decision concerning same-sex marriage, Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Ya’alon tweeted [1] his support for a similar outcome in the Holy Land. To be sure, Mr. Ya’alon’s predilection for this issue has been known for some time now, at least since 2012 [2], and in the run-up to the most recent Knesset elections, he showed that he had not changed his mind [3].This, of course, brings to mind the question: Will Israel follow the tide in Europe and the U.S.?If Israel were Tel Aviv [4], there might...
