  • Michigan auto-repair business owner: I won’t serve “openly gay” customers

    Hotair ^ | 04/17/2015 | AllahPundit
    First case I know of since the gay rights/religious liberty debate sharpened up over the last few years where a Christian business owner threatened to refuse all service to gay — or “openly gay,” i.e. affection-displaying — clients rather than service for gay weddings specifically. Although, strictly speaking, this isn’t a “religious liberty” case: There are no state or local laws where this guy lives that require him to serve gays. He can refuse for any reason he likes, religious or not. I wonder if it occurred to him when he was posting to Facebook that what he wrote,...

    GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — The owner of a Grandville auto repair shop says he won’t hesitate “to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons.” Brian Klawiter, the owner of Dieseltec on Ottawa Avenue in Grandville, posted the statement to his company’s Facebook page on Tuesday because he says the voices of those who have Christian, conservative values are often overshadowed by those who do not. “I want to have a voice about this,” Klawiter told 24 Hour News 8 Wednesday. “I want to be heard about this… It’s challenging to decide to say I’m on the opposing side...

    A CBS4 investigation has learned that two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport have been fired after they were discovered manipulating passenger screening systems to allow a male TSA employee to fondle the genital areas of attractive male passengers. It happened roughly a dozen times, according to information gathered by CBS4. According to law enforcement reports obtained during the CBS4 investigation, a male TSA screener told a female colleague in 2014 that he "gropes" male passengers who come through the screening area at DIA. "He related that when a male he finds attractive comes to be screened by...

    "The Pope and the transsexual", is how the media similarly described the Holy Thursday liturgy of Pope Francis in the Roman prison Regina Coeli. On the first day of the Triduum Paschale, the Pope again followed his practice of having deserted the liturgically provided cathedral church of Rome and went to the "margins". This year the Pope visited the Roman prison Regina Coeli. He washed the feet of male and female prisoners and celebrated in the "Lord's Supper" in the prison hall. Vatican Television rendered images all over the world Among the prisoners, whose feet the Pope washed, there was...

    As Cardinal Burke warns that the “gay lobby” within the Catholic Church is plotting for disaster at the Synod, civil society is increasingly dominated by a “homo-Fascism,” aided and abetted by the mass media, that demands absolute conformity on the part of Christians to social acceptance of the sin of sodomy. Witness the debacle in Indiana, where a state version of the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, designed to protect Christians from demands that they accommodate the “gay agenda” in their businesses — as, for example, by selling “gay wedding” cakes with two male figurines on top — came under...

    For the last 5500+ years, wedding ceremonies have been sacred—set apart as holy, and reserved only for those who qualify…one man and one woman. Since the beginning of time, it has been the absolute standard as a foundation of families, of our society, and of civilization as we know it. All civilizations that have violated that standard have eventually fallen, often with nothing left to show for their existence but rubble. As the rest of the world looked on in horror, all they had left were the hard lessons to be learned for their neighbor’s devastating mistakes. There is absolute...

When I retired from my tenured teaching career at a suburban Illinois college just across the border from Indiana, I was hired as a news correspondent for a large daily newspaper, located at the time in Gary, IN. I was hired, I later found out, because a very leftist editor had so alienated readers with his attacks on Republicans, especially in and around Crown Point, that readership figures had plummeted and changes had to be made at all levels. This editorialist took after the beloved mayor of...

Blacks now make up over 18% of the Federal workforce nationwide, although they account for just 12% of the US population. Employee rolls at some federal agencies are over 50% black.

    The governor of Indiana last week signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, modeled on similar federal legislation. The Indiana statute states that a person’s religious beliefs may not be “substantially burden[ed]” by anti-discrimination statutes. In other words, if anti-discrimination laws could be construed as forcing a person to violate his own religious conscience, then the law allows for an exemption in that case to anti-discrimination mandates. The response from the left has been fierce, and multiple CEOs of major firms, including Apple and Salesforce, have come out against the legislation with Salesforce announcing that it will impose a partial boycott...

Earlier this month he signed the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act in a private ceremony. In attendance were prominent opponents of gay marriage. In response, great algae plumes of righteous outrage erupted across the Internet. Gay-rights groups, the Democratic party,...

    Town Hall ^ | 3/30/15 | Patrick Buchanan
    In what has been called the “Catholic moment” in America, in the late 1940s and 1950s, Catholics were admonished from pulpits to “live the faith” and “set an example” for others. Public lives were to reflect moral beliefs. Christians were to avoid those “living in sin.” Christians who operated motels and hotels did not rent rooms to unmarried couples. Fast forward to 21st-century America. Indiana just enacted a law, as have 19 other states, to protect the rights of religious people to practice their beliefs in how they live their lives and conduct their businesses.

Both women were wearing wedding rings and there were visible signs...

    While they always disguise it behind the euphemistic language of “tolerance,” “equality” and “social justice,” on occasion the homofascist left will admit to its designs on fascism. There are some who doubt those of us who have long warned that many homosexualists intend to compel, through any means possible (up to and including physical force), Christians and other dissenters to fully surrender to their radical homosexual activist agenda. Mark Charles Hardie, a Huffington post columnist and 2016 candidate for the California State Senate, is helping to make our point.

    Last week, Dr. Ben Carson stepped onto a political mine -- really, jumped onto it with both feet -- when he answered a question from CNN's Chris Cuomo about the nature of homosexuality. "You think being gay is a choice?" Cuomo asked Carson, after Carson rightly stated that being black and being gay are two very different phenomena. "Absolutely," replied Carson. He then went on to explain, "A lot of people who go into prison straight go into prison straight -- and when they come out, they're gay." Carson's unstated line of reasoning is perfectly logical.

Those who have a strong religious faith are being denied the right to say “no” based on its teachings and values. This is particularly true these days as homosexuals, barely three percent of the population, demand that they be accommodated when their demand runs counter to thousands of years of what has been deemed moral behavior and, for many, still is.

I'll add that I am shocked how frequently and hard they've been pushing it down reader's throats. It's a war of moral values.

Outsports writer Cyd Zeigler is headed to Arizona today to cover the big game — and he gets a seat in the press box. Unfortunately, Cyd missed yesterday’s Media Day circus and the chance to ask Tom Brady questions like, “Where is Gisele?” (Answer: “Home with the kids.”)

    Among other things, the questionnaire asked how the church can care for families with gay children and discern "positive and negative elements" in heterosexual civil unions. It also asked how the church can better provide sacraments for Catholics who divorce and remarry outside the church. Church teaching holds that without an annulment, or a church decree that the first marriage was null, such Catholics are living in sin and are thus ineligible to receive communion. Francis has sought to end what he calls "de facto excommunication" for these Catholics, and the issue was a source of heated debate during the...

Joseph Scott Pemberton had been detained on board the USS Peleliu at the Subic Bay Freeport, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) northwest of Manila, after he was implicated in the death of 26-year-old Jennifer Laude, whose former name was Jeffrey....

    Whatever rights the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Human Rights Commission is safeguarding, the right to engage in commerce doesn’t seem to be among them — not if you’re a believing Christian, anyway. In a shocking decision, a commission examiner made a recommended ruling last Monday that a Christian businessman violated a local ordinance against sexual-orientation discrimination by refusing to print T-shirts with a pro-homosexual message. As Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported, “The examiner concluded that Blaine Adamson of Hands On Originals broke the law in 2012 by declining to print shirts promoting the Lexington Pride Festival. The Gay and Lesbian Services...

    A number of black Christian pastors and church leaders slammed the United States Supreme Court justices for turning down a case that would once and for all settle the dispute and divisiveness created by the issue of same-sex marriage. The National Coalition of Black Pastors and Christian Leaders characterized the court's decision -- "not to hear the case" and send it back to the lower courts -- as cowardice on the part of the nine members of the nation's highest court. On Monday, Oct. 6, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court simply stated that it would not review cases which overturned...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee threatened to leave the GOP and run for the White House in 2016 as an independent if Republicans “capitulate” and support same-sex marriage. “If the Republicans want to lose guys like me, and a whole bunch of still God-fearing, Bible-believing people, go ahead and just abdicate on this issue—and go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either,” Huckabee told Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, on Wildmon’s “Today’s Issues” radio show. “Because at that point, you lose me; I’m gone.” “I’ll become an independent,” he vowed in an interview on Tuesday. “I’ll start...

    A few weeks ago New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee (SPDC) made a cynical and politically correct decision to allow Gays to march in the parade under a banner proclaiming they are proud sodomites. No one else in the parade is allow to advertise their particular sin; there have been no demands from groups to march under a banner saying “Proud Irish burglars.” But none of this means much to the SPDC. Those of us who have loved this parade and have fond memories of watching it and marching in it held our collective breath and waited for...

    TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Remember when "God" said he wanted to plaster a pro-tolerance message on a billboard in the back yard of the Westboro Baptist Church? Well, thanks to the donations of more than 3,700 funders, God -- or at least the mysterious person running God's Facebook page -- has raised more than $80,0000 in support of a "God Loves Gays" billboard in Topeka, Kan.

    A Franklin student who sexually assaulted two fellow volleyball team members on a school bus after a trip to a game in Northampton County was escorted to jail in tears after she pleaded no contest to two counts of misdemeanor sexual battery. Aerial Darden, who was 17 at the time of the offense and a senior team captain, organized a group that held down a 13-year-old teammate, placed a pillow over her face and touched her inappropriately. The victim was on her first trip with the team. The attack came after Darden and others held the arms and legs of...

    A gay group will be able to march under its own banner in the city's St. Patrick's Day Parade for the first time on March 17, organizers said Wednesday. The nation’s oldest and biggest St. Pat's parade will lift the ban on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups that want to participate while identifying themselves as gay. “Those of us who are Irish and LGBT would watch this city celebrate and know we weren’t welcome,” former City Council speaker Christine Quinn, who boycotted the event for decades, told the Daily News. “To have that end, not only puts all of...

    You may often see articles in the media claiming that "research has shown" that children of same-sex couples are thriving, in fact are physically and psychologically doing just as well as, or even better than, children of couples who are -- let me use this currently underused word -- normal. Are these works reliable? In July such a study, carried out in Australia, was much trumpeted by that pillar of "progressive" thinking, the Washington Post, under the headline "Children of same-sex couples are happier and healthier than peers, research shows". Researcher Simon Crouch and his team at the University of...

    Tuesday's SportsCenter featured an awkward break down of Michael Sam -- Rams defensive lineman and the first openly-gay player in the NFL -- and his shower habits. While Josina Anderson reported Kendall Langford said Sam is "one of the guys and seems to be taking a rookie approach in terms of listening and learning at his own pace" she also reported one unnamed Rams defensive player's position on Sam's showering with teammates. "Another defensive player told me Sam is 'respecting our space' and from his perspective he seems to think Michael Sam is kind of waiting to take a shower...
