    School administrators reprimanded a 13-year-old girl for showing up to school wearing an LGBT-positive T-shirt this week, deeming the message "distracting" and "disruptive." The shirt bore the phrase, "Some people are gay. Get over it!" in rainbow-hued letters, and was worn by Ali Chaney of Copperas Cove, Tex. "It's just a shirt, and it's not hurting anybody," Chaney, who is gay, told KCEN-TV. But the SC Lee Junior High School maintains that the shirt violated the dress code, releasing a statement through its Copperas Cove Independent School District that notes, "Our purpose at CCISD is to educate children, first and...

    LOUISVILLE, Kentucky, May 19, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) The homosexual plaintiffs behind the Supreme Court case legalizing gay marriage across the U.S. are claiming discrimination after a Catholic cemetery declined their headstone design because it conflicted with Church teaching. "It's pretty clear when you read the letter that this is a clear case of LGBT discrimination," said Greg Bourke, one-half of the same-sex Louisville, KY, couple named as plaintiffs in Obergefell v. Hodges. Bourke and Michael De Leon held a press conference Wednesday outside St. Michael Cemetery to claim the Archdiocese of Louisville was discriminating against them for its rejection of...

    According to GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), Disney has a big fat “F” for LGBT representation in their movies – meaning, there haven’t been any gay characters in children’s movies in 2015.  However, since Disney announced there will be a Frozen 2 in the works for 2018, a few frustrated lesbian fans are trying to use the movie to feature an alternative romance for Queen Elsa, a gay character – or in this case – a different kind of “queen.” When a movie includes a song about how "love is an open door," the LGBT lobbyists will...

    Last week, one of my recent articles was published on The Gospel Coalition website. I have realized over the years that any time I write about the ever-controversial topic of homosexuality, I should expect a couple truckloads of criticism to come rolling into the comments section. This TGC article was no exception. I scrolled through "the aftermath" on Facebook and Twitter the day following its publishing, trying my best to humbly process the comments of some disgruntled readers. Quite a few people commended my commitment to celibacy but also shared that they believe my ongoing experience of same-sex attraction is...

    Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov.

Asked by Kelly Bryan, a gay 62-year-old man, during an event at the Commonwealth Club of California whether people are "born gay," Kasich first attempted to avoid answering the question. "I'm not gonna get into all the analysis of this or that," Kasich said at the San Francisco town hall. "I'm not gonna do that." But the questioner pressed again: "It's not analysis. Are people born gay?"...

    With regard to its designs for our nation, debasement has been the name of the game for the political left for a long time. While volumes could be written on the moral debasement alone catalyzed by the left, Americas standing in the world, our economy, our educational system, our worldview and collective self-image, among many other things, have been targets for incremental debasement by the left. When liberals began targeting the sexual attitudes of our population through mass media and junk science such as Alfred Kinseys perverted sex studies, suddenly the worst thing one could be was a prude, and...

    Today I want to address a popular argument made by those who try to reconcile homosexuality with Christianity. The argument is that Jesus Himself never said a word about homosexuality. Those who make this argument grant that Paul condemned it as sinful (Rom 1:2627; 1 Cor 6:910; 1 Tim 1:910). But the sentiment behind this objection is that Paul had corrupted the way of life and the ideology that Jesus came to propagate, and that Jesus would have been loving and accepting of homosexuals, just as they are. But is it true that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality? Actually,...

The survey for Channel 4 found there was a chasm between views among the British Muslim community and mainstream opinion in this country. It found 52 per cent of Muslims said homosexuality should not be legal in Britain. Of more than 1,000 British Muslims polled by ICM, 39 per cent agreed wives should always obey their husbands, and 31 per cent said it was acceptable for a man to have more than one wife. The survey also found 23 per cent said they supported...

He urged priests around the world to be more accepting of gays and lesbians, divorced Catholics and other people living in what the church considers "irregular" situations. "A pastor cannot feel that it is enough simply to apply moral laws ... as if they were stones to throw at people's lives," Francis writes in a sweeping paper outlining his stance on family matters.

In a land where acting gay is already illegal, the current punishments for first-time offenders - fines, prison terms and whippings - have proved to be inadequate deterrents. From now on they will be executed. UK Express Saudi law makers could impose the death penalty on gay people who show their sexuality in public and on social media, according to reports.

Nevertheless, the duplicity recently on display in Georgia belongs in the hypocrisy hall of fame. After the U.S. Supreme Courts infamous Obergefell decision, and after previous efforts at a religious liberty bill failed, and in order to protect its citizens from the militant homosexual agenda, legislators in Georgia felt renewed urgency to join over 30 other U.S. states which have similar religious liberty legislation or provisions.

But his revelation was far from the only story line involving gay, lesbian and transgender characters in the fast-evolving world of comic-book narratives. In October, Alysia Yeoh, a transgender friend of Batgirl, and her girlfriend Jo were married in a simple ceremony unmarred by super-villainy; Peter Parker, perhaps better known as Spider-Man, attended the wedding of Max Modell, his scientific mentor...

    President Obama has spent at least $700 million promoting homosexual tolerance in Africa.  Unfortunately, the initiative seems to have backfired: Since 2012, the American government has put more than $700 million into supporting gay rights groups and causes globally. More than half of that money has focused on sub-Saharan Africa — just one indication of this continent’s importance to the new policy. The U.S. support is making matters worse,” said Mike, 24, a university student studying biology in Minna, a town in centralNigeria who asked that his full name not be used for his safety. “There’s more resistance now.

    In 1975, I took a college course in psychology. The professor invited a gay man to speak to the class. He explained to us, "I'm just like you, only I prefer to have sex with men instead of women." No one objected or protested. What did we know? The thesis seemed plausible then, and today most people regard it as axiomatic. The gay agenda is to convince the heterosexual majority that there are no appreciable differences between homosexuals and heterosexuals. We are to believe that sexual preference is merely a personal choice with no broader ramifications for society. The choice...

Jackson of the National Emergency Coalition (NEC), Senator Cruz said, “You look at the military and one of the things we’ve seen is morale in the military under the Obama administration has...

    Consider this a dangerous post, and a post that will be easily misunderstood. For here I am about to make a point that explores a biblical theme and apply it to today. But in so doing, I am “holding other things equal”—a technique which examines a certain aspect of a problem and focuses on that one thing, while not denying that other factors and issues are also at work. Simply put, part of the explanation is that God is permitting increased violence, and not restraining it, as a kind of chastisement on the increasingly secular West for our unbelief. This...
  • "Combat Effectiveness" Being Degraded by Obama's Military Policies

    "Combat Effectiveness" Being Degraded by Obama's Military Policies By evaluating an overwhelming amount of evidence that has been building for 6 ½ years, the obvious conclusion personnel with extensive military experience will come to, is that Obama’s military policies have been degrading the finest US military fighting force in history. Over the last 6 ½ years, the US Armed Forces has been hollowed out by Obama, his Social Experiment On Diversity has severely fractured unit cohesiveness, his “Politically Correct Policies” have negatively affected unit morale, and the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US military is being degraded. Tip of the spear...
  • Katharine Jefferts Schori: A failed mental state

    Katherine Jefferts Schori has opined that Islam, Judaism and Christianity are "Abrahamic faiths" and are therefore on an equal footing. However, Islam claims that it is not like Judaism and Christianity. Consider this teaching of Islam: "Asserting one's religion does not mean that you simply leave people to worship whatever they please without comment, like the Christians and the Jews do. It means that you must clearly and plainly disapprove of what they worship, and show enmity towards the disbelievers; failing this there is no assertion of Islam." (From Al Wala' wa'l Bara by Muhammad Sa'eed Al Qahtani) Al-wala' wa'l-bara...

    In June this year SCOTUS ruled homosexuals could marry. That night the White House was bathed in the colors of the rainbow signifying solidarity with their homosexual allies. Yesterday America's oldest alli was hit with Islamic terrorism. IMany Americans changed their Facebook profile to reflect the colors of the French flag. Landmarks around the world displayed the French colors. The White House has done nothing. The White House response to the SCOTUS ruling and the Islamic attack on Paris is very revealing.

    crisis magazine ^ | November 11, 2015 | Deacon Jim Russell
    Events of recent memory have left my head spinning in disbelief—“Caitlyn,” same-sex so-called “marriage,” three women “marrying” in South America, and, yes, “gay Catholics” and “chaste gay couples.” With me, you may wonder how all this has emerged in a short few decades of social upheaval. I may have an answer: Society has constructed an unreal cultural landscape in which things that are not sexuality are passed off as sexuality. Even a majority of Catholics are, perhaps unwittingly, swallowing this unreality, hook, line, and sinker.The fabric of this false landscape is language—language that frames everyone and everything in a...

    "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20 From the LGBT Out Magazine: This is the first time a sitting president has been photographed for the cover of an LGBT title, a historic moment in itself, and a statement on how much his administration has done to advance a singularly volatile issue that tarnished the reputations of both President Clinton and President Bush. It might have tarnished this president, too, but for his late-hour conversion in 2012, which...
  • Catholic Mass Lectionary Omits Anti-Homosexualism Verses from Romans 1

    Why do Catholics in America support homosexuality proportionately more than the general population? Two reasons: lack of authentic Catholic teaching regarding homosexuality, and the Church omitted one of the clearest Bible verses on homosexuality from the lectionary. One of the very unfortunate results of the New Lectionary is that verses that might be deemed offensive have been omitted from our liturgical celebrations. (I've written about how three "offensive" Psalms were removed from the Liturgy of the Hours after 1971 here.) Verses against Homosexuality Omitted from Current LectionaryAn example of the silence of offensive passages is from the readings of last...

    The truth of the Catholic Church regarding homosexuality is so far removed from the mainstream media’s debates over same-sex “marriage” it is nearly impossible to achieve an accurate reading of the Synod’s final document (Relazione Finale) without an in depth understanding of the Church’s teaching in this regard... ...However, all of that language is missing from the Synod’s final document. The war over language in the Synod hall was all about getting rid of clear language condemning homosexuality and other sins, and the liberals have achieved their goal in the final document. Gone are references to even the sinfulness of...

    http://townhall.com/columnists/michaelbrown/2015/10/23/why-cant-two-gay-brothers-marry-n2070299/page/full One of the strongest arguments against consensual adult incest is that incestuous unions could result in children with genetic defects, but since that concern wouldnt apply to same-sex couples, an Irish political leader has argued that gay cousins should be allowed to marry. And that only begs the next obvious question: Why not gay brothers or gay sisters? As reported in the Irish Times, Independent Senator David Norris, himself gay, has said that gay cousins should be allowed to marry each other following the same-sex marriage referendum. It would not take a feather out of me if two cousins...

    http://www.gopusa.com/freshink/2015/10/23/a-few-transgender-students-tie-school-districts-in-knots-over-locker-rooms/?subscriber=1 Across America, public schools are faced with a challenge almost unheard of a generation ago: dealing with a student population that isn't sorted neatly into boys and girls. A small but growing number of students and their families are demanding that schools make accommodations for transgender youths, who were born with the body parts of one gender but identify with the other. Which bathrooms should they use? Should they play for the boys sports teams or the girls? Where should they change clothes and shower after gym class or athletic events? Palatine-based Township High School District 211 is prepared...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. Asking for accommodations for religious freedom on marriage is not enough and is likely to fail, says Southern Evangelical Seminary professor Frank Turek. At the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics, Turek hosted a panel discussion on marriage titled "What Do We Do Now?" in which he asserted that Christians and supporters of traditional marriage have to make broader arguments about its benefits to society and family. "We can't let it all just be about religious liberty, because if we don't make the arguments that we are arguing for the good of all society...

    Citizen Link ^ | 6/14/2010
    Can someone really be “born” gay? Is there a “gay gene”? Does biology equal destiny?Clearly, the controversy over this issue is huge in our culture. While pro-gay activists and their allies want us to believe people are “born gay” and that sexual orientation is an unchangeable characteristic like race or eye color, a closer examination of the scientific evidence reveals that the “nature vs. nurture” debate over homosexuality is far from settled. At best, the evidence for a genetic and/or biological basis to homosexual orientation is inconclusive. In fact, since the early 1990s, numerous studies attempting to establish a genetic...

    A century ago these times were imagined and they are now here. How do we live as Christians in such times? My mother-in-law is ninety-five years old. She has lived through several wars and numerous other cataclysmic events in her life. Nothing has her more perplexed, shocked, and almost emotionally stunned as the culture wars that have been waged and have changed our world. I see her sitting in church when I am visiting her, obviously wondering why all of her past memories have been lost in the present format of worship. She is not at home either in...
