    The American media would have you believe there is a concerted effort among Christians in America to discriminate against gay Americans. "No gays allowed," they claim small Christian business owners are saying. It is a fiction created to avoid dealing with the facts. The fact is I am unaware of any Christian business that refuses to serve gay customers, but I am aware of many gay activists targeting Christian small businesses for persecution.The latest issue is also the one where the left has most dramatically overplayed its hand. Jack Phillips, a baker in Denver, CO, has been compared to a...

    Students at Grand County High School in Utah were supposed to attend poetry slam workshops on tolerance and acceptance. Instead, students were subjected to political rhetoric, LGBT propaganda and something called “identity mapping.” Parents told the Todd Starnes Show that one of the workshop leaders announced to the children, “I’m queer and I’m Trump’s worst enemy.” An untold number of students were directed by workshop leaders to separate themselves intro groups based on their sexual identity and their religious preference. Parents told the Todd Starnes Show they are livid over the September event. “I’m sending my daughter to school to...

    There are now so many entrances to the rabbit hole that you may trip and fall into one quite by accident.  And once you do the rabbit warren is like a maze of drug-induced alternate realities. But this…this might give even the most reality-challenged social justice warrior pause: Demonic Clown Drag Queen Does Story Time at Michelle Obama Public Library.The fact this “diversity” event took place at the Long Beach Michelle Obama Library alone qualifies for a Rabbit Hole Report special mention for alternate reality irony. But I sense a shift here, perhaps an indication that the Rabbit Hole brigade...

    The jury trial for a Casper resident charged with sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl began Monday. Miguel Martinez faces one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. If found guilty, Martinez could face up to 70 years in prison. The girl said Martinez, who is a family friend, invited her into the bathroom, touched her breasts and genitalia before penetrating her. Nurses at the Wyoming Medical Center completed a sexual assault exam and found redness and abrasions on the girl’s genitalia.

    The Christian baker in Colorado who was sued for declining to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding reception received a strange request last month: Design and bake a cake celebrating Satan’s birthday. “I would like to get a quote on a birthday cake, for a special event,” the email request to baker Jack Phillips, sent Sept. 30 and exclusively obtained by The Daily Signal, reads. It continues: It is a cake that is religious in theme, and since religion is a protected class, I am hoping that you will gladly bake this cake. As you see, the birthday...

    A Boise State University professor recently learned what happens when you challenge left-wing social narratives on college campuses. Scott Yenor, a tenured professor, has been under siege on campus after publishing articles with The Heritage Foundation and The Daily Signal about feminism and the transgender movement. In those articles, Yenor explained the similarity in philosophy between the early feminists and modern transgender movement and how they aim at undermining traditional family values. He wrote in a Daily Signal article on Aug. 2:

    The Blaze ^ | 10/15/17
    A pediatrician went on a viral rant recently about the dangers of convincing children they are transgender and then prescribing them hormone blockers that prevent them from developing into their born gender. What did she say? At a recent Heritage Foundation forum about the topic, Dr. Michelle Cretella went on a lengthy rant about how it is child abuse to indulge children who are gender-confused by helping them “transition” to the gender they think they are. Cretella said: Chemical castration is what you’re doing when you put any biologically normal child on puberty blockers. It’s treating puberty like a disease,...

    Every patient visiting their family doctor or attending a hospital appointment in England will be asked to declare if they are gay, straight or bisexual under controversial new rules imposed by the NHS. The astonishing diktat – condemned last night as ‘intrusive’ and ‘insulting’ – orders doctors to include details of a patient’s sexuality on their permanent medical record for the first time.

    Many children and families struggling with gender dysphoria are not receiving the facts about the permanent consequences associated with "experimental" puberty-blocking and sex-reassignment treatments, nor are they being told that justification for such treatments are not backed by strong scientific evidence, doctors warned Wednesday. "Much of what is being done here can be considered experimental treatment," Paul Hruz, a St. Louis-based doctor who is a professor of pediatrics, endocrinology, cell biology and physiology at the Washington University School of Medicine, said during a panel discussion on transgender medicine hosted by the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation. "But that is...

    Sadly, Harvey Weinstein's act isn't the darkest in Hollywood's repertoire – at least that we know of. As has been reported, the women Harvey sexually abused were adults. But did Harvey rape or sexually abuse any minors? Corey Feldman? Corey Haim? Drew Barrymore? The Olsen twins? In 2011 interview with ABC News, Corey Feldman stated: "I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That's the biggest problem for children in this industry. ... It's the big secret[.] ... I was surrounded by [pedophiles] when I was 14 years old....

    Scathing accusations at the funeral for a bishop, many believe to have been brutally murdered, have sparked criminal charges and an assassination attempt against the homilist. Monsignor Joseph Akonga Essomba, a lifelong friend of Bp. Jean Marie Benoit Bala, accused government officials and high ranking clergy, attending the funeral, of killing the bishop for rejecting homosexuality, saying "those who actually killed the bishop were people in positions of power, but it was homosexual priests who betrayed him." Shortly after the funeral, the Cameroon government opened an investigation against Essomba, accusing him of making "inappropriate accusations" and wanting to "destabilize Cameroon."...

    Hotair ^ | 10/10/2017 | Jazz Shaw
    We actually discussed this proposal when it first arose in California a while back, but much of the general consensus seemed to be that it wouldn’t actually happen so there was no sense spinning our wheels over it. This issue at hand was a bill which would criminalize the use of the “wrong pronoun” when speaking with transgender persons. It was only supposed to apply to health care workers in nursing homes and other specific care facilities, but opponents worried that it could readily be expanded to every aspect of life. As I said… not gonna happen, right?Well, never...

    Long ago we warned anyone who would listen what would happen if liberals were allowed to liken whatever their cause was to the Civil Rights movement. Whether we're talking gays or illegal immigrants of Muslims, there is NO comparison to their situations today with what blacks in the United States endured from slavery through the end of segregation. But in many cases, liberals act exactly like the racist Democrat segregationists of the not-too-recent past....

    A gay coffee shop owner in Seattle decided to kick out a group of Christian anti-abortion protesters, going on an expletive-laden, extremely offensive rant that was recorded and posted on Facebook. The group, Abolish Human Abortion, appeared not to be bothering anyone.  They weren't in the shop to proselytize or hand out literature.  They just wanted a cup of coffee. What they got was an obscene, even blasphemous rant from an unbalanced store owner. Daily Caller: The owner heatedly tells the Christians to leave his shop immediately in a video posted to Facebook by Abolish Human Abortion, Christian group...

    Even as Democrats publicly and loudly decry corporatist political “dark money,” billionaire Democrats and other donors funnel hundreds of millions to radical and violent causes.   Barely a week had passed after Donald Trump’s historic upset in the November 8 presidential election, but some of the world’s richest individuals were already launching a counteroffensive. George Soros and his fellow deep-pocket funders of the Democratic Party and left-wing causes gathered with a lineup of party activists and luminaries from Hollywood, K Street, and Wall Street for a three-day “investment conference” (November 15-17) at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C....

    California can now start jailing people that refuse to use the preferred gender pronouns of nursing home residents after Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill Thursday. The law’s effect is limited to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, but mandates that those who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” can be slapped with a $1,000 fine and up to one year in prison, according to the California Heath and Safety code. Known as the “LGBT Senior Bill Of Rights,” the legislation also requires nursing homes and care facilities to allow residents...

    New York City, N.Y., Dec 10, 2013 / 12:37 pm (CNA).- An atheist movie reviewer has criticized the new film “Philomena” as “another hateful and boring attack on Catholics,” saying that it unfairly shows the Church as exploitative and coercive. “Anyone who is honest understands that it lambastes the way Irish Catholicism played out in 1950s Ireland, using falsehoods whenever necessary to underscore the point,” said Kyle Smith, a movie critic for the New York Post. “Some like ‘Philomena’ for that reason. Some think there should be a little more art than diatribe to a film,” he continued. The...

    Our family received shocking news. Our niece- a beautiful 13YO identical twin girl- Natalia, has decided that she wants to be a BOY. However, her family is celebrating the news. Natalia is now to be called 'Nace' and she dresses as a boy. We have been warned (threatened) we must use the pronouns--him or he. And it's so much worse because she has an identical lovely twin sister, Olivia. Olivia is a very feminine, modestly dressed, normal appearing happy-go lucky, girly-girl. Natalie and Olivia are naturally life-long best friends. This is being culturally normalized and may strike a family near...
