  • Jesuits at Australian prep schools urge students, parents to support ‘gay marriage’ [Cath Cauc]

    Leaders from two prominent Jesuit schools in Australia have tacitly endorsed gay “marriage” before the country’s vote on the issue in communications to parents, staff and students. Leadership for St. Ignatius College in Sydney and Xavier College in Melbourne used Pope Francis' emphasis on love as the “primary Gospel value” and the primacy of individual conscience to give a positive portrayal of homosexual relationships. Their statements also directly defied Catholic teaching and recent statements by Australian prelates about upholding Catholic identity in Church institutions. The Jesuit schools are alma maters for generations of Australian politicians, The Sydney Morning Herald reported....

    U.S. Senate candidate and former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore invokes President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan with and added twist. Moore said, “I support President Trump’s agenda of making America great again. But I submit to you that we can only make America great again if we make America good,” Moore’s campaign announcement spelled out what he believes isn’t good: divorce, abortion and same-sex marriage. Moore made the statement in his downtown Montgomery office a day after announcing his bid for the Senate seat previously held by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I am definitely not establishment,” Moore said with...

    Caffeinated Thoughts ^ | January 2, 2016 | Adam Graham
    In the debate over Ted Cruz's stand that the issue of the sanctity of marriage should be strictly left up to the states, those who favor a Federal Marriage Amendment such as Governor Mike Huckabee and Senator Rick Santorum are accused of wanting to trample on states rights. The truth is neither of these gentlemen is opposed to federalism. Federalism is a great heritage of our nation. It allows different states to operate according to the dictates of each state's citizenry. Take the issue of gambling. My home state of Idaho forbids casinos but allows the lottery while our neighboring...

    How to Discuss Same-Sex “Marriage” With Dissenting Family Members Msgr. Charles Pope • November 15, 2015 • I was out on the preaching circuit this past week and spoke at five parishes (including my own) on the biblical vision of Holy Matrimony (marriage) as set forth by God and the Church. The talks were sponsored by the pro-life group Defend Life.While I cannot succinctly reproduce the talk in today's blog, I spoke from notes that are available here and here. A video of one of the talks will be posted soon.I heard a consistent concern voiced by those in attendance...

    Fourth District U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler on Friday became the only member of Missouri’s congressional delegation to issue a public statement in support of Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed because of her defiant stance against same-sex marriage. There are six Republicans and two Democrats in the House delegation, while the Senate seats are held by Republican Roy Blunt and Democrat Claire McCaskill.

    Gay couple plantiffs in the federal lawsuit against Rowan County, Kentucky Chief Clerk Kim Davis will walk into her office in a few hours and get their marriage licenses. News media have been reporting their plans overnight. My estimation of the unfolding of events goes like this. Judge David Bunning found out that five of Davis's clerks would obey his order yesterday so Bunning jailed Chief Clerk Kim Davis temporarily so the marriage licenses can be issued today. Then I expect Bunning to spring Davis from jail so she won't end up having some martyr status. I'm reminded of the...

  • Brittney Griner accused wife of cheating on her with men

    Brittney Griner filed to have her marriage to fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson annulled last month, claiming that the union was based on “fraud and duress” and that Johnson pressured her into it. Griner also suspected that Johnson was cheating on her. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Griner says she discovered in April that Johnson had been texting with her ex-boyfriend. She says she never would have married Johnson if she suspected something was still going on between Johnson and the man.

    Baptist Press ^ | June 26, 2015 | David Roach
    Legal opinions vary widely on what the U.S. Supreme Court's mandate of nationwide same-sex marriage will mean for pastors and government officials authorized to perform weddings. Some legal experts say government officials charged with performing weddings could lose their jobs for refusing to marry gay couples. But others believe both ministers and government officials likely will have freedom not to perform same-sex marriages that violate their religious convictions. And some experts believe pastors who refuse to solemnize same-sex marriages could face government repercussions. The court's majority opinion, written by Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, states that "religions" and "those who adhere...

    If you are a member of a Bible-believing church that considers homosexuality to be sin, last week's SCOTUS decision making gay marriage a federal right has to be disturbing. Soon, as they have with wedding bakers, florists and photographers, gays are likely to show up to be test cases asking to get married in your church. If you are a church elder, what is your response going to be when it is your church they want to marry in? There's a good chance your answer is going to be like this: "The Bible declares in Deuteronomy and Romans and elsewhere...

    I've always been struck, even though I didn't always agree, with the fierceness with which the Judge presented her weekly diatribe against her cause of the week. She was to the point, sarcastic when necessary, and absolutely brutal with her honesty, taking no prisoners. So, I was really surprised when her entire hour, unless I missed it on a 'necessary run', did not mention the Scotus decision on homosexual marriage. Ignoring one of the most momentous decisions by the court that seeks to transform our nation and human history, Janine was silent as a lamb. We heard about the bogus...

    On Friday, shortly after the Gaypocolypse began raining down on the media landscape like an ELE comet strike, I had already begun musing on Twitter about the no longer hypothetical slippery slope which had just opened up. To be sure, we’ve had more than a few discussions of slippery slope items in years past which were little more than hyperbole in the real world. But then, the “real world” has been changing rather rapidly in the past few years and I’ve had to take a fresh look at some items which I’d previously written off as straw men, but have...

    This week’s Supreme Court decision in regard to legitimacy of homosexual marriage just well may be illegitimate itself whatever way the Court decides. And because of this very fact, 2016 and its crucial election must include initiatives to institute TERM LIMITS for SCOTUS along with a swift and very definitive process for removal of any member of the U.S. Supreme Court! Just consider the fact that their rabid feminism pushed both Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Elena Kagan to “marry” two same-sex couples though they knew full well they were being called upon to give definitive judgment in the...

    Continuing his critique of the Supreme Court’s recent decisions on Obamacare and same-sex marriage, Sen. Ted Cruz said Friday that the rulings mark “some of the darkest 24 hours in our nations history.” Cruz made the comments in an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show Friday afternoon. “Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history,” Cruz said. “I couldn’t say it more eloquently,” Hannity responded. “Yesterday and today were both naked and shameless judicial activism,” Cruz said. “Neither decision — the decision yesterday rewriting Obamacare for the second time. Six justices joined the Obama administration. You...
