    HOUSTON - It was a unique offer by the Shiloh Shooting Range in northwest Harris County, just days after the shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Shiloh offered free gun classes to the LGBT community and hundreds of people responded. "We learned gun safety,” said Jared Anthony. “We learned that it's not ... it's a big responsibility. If you do carry, it's something that you do need to take seriously. You are providing ... you're providing a service to the community really."

    It's time for a policy change in the American military. "Don't ask, don't tell" may have seemed like a good compromise in 1993 but makes no sense in a post 9/11 world where the average soldier worries far more about getting fragged by an al Qaeda sympathizer in their platoon than whether their bunkmate is a little light in their government issued boots. This report from ABC news should make your jaw drop: U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials...

    Firefighters and medics will take their first “Trans 101” course on Tuesday, learning the correct way to interact with transgender people — and even getting a lesson in what LGTBQI actually stands for, a city official said. The two-hour sensitivity training was launched in March by the city Commission for Human Rights after Mayor de Blasio signed an executive order allowing people to use any public bathroom or locker room they identified with, regardless of their sexual anatomy.

    On June 28, 1969, patrons at a gay bar in New York City's West Village neighborhood decided they had finally had enough after yet another police raid. As the NYPD attempted to enforce a law making it illegal to serve alcohol to "homosexuals," the resistance of the bar patrons turned into an uprising - the Stonewall Uprising - an event now widely credited with sparking the modern LGBTQ rights movement in the U.S. Now, nearly 50 years later, that same location - where members of the community stood up to government injustice - has been designated a new national monument...

    Market watch recently reported that Wells Fargo stock has plunged into its greatest losing streak in nearly nine years. This comes as little surprise given the fact that the company has experienced a takeover at the hands of radical leftists. Leftists may be experts in certain things like organic gardening, herbal healing, and folk music. But they are not known for their expertise in economics and personal finance. In case you have missed Wells Fargo’s recent radical political shift, here are some of the highlights:-GOP Convention Boycott.

    During homo-slaughtering Islamist gunman Omar Mateen’s rainbow bloodbath at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub on June 12, he reportedly called 911 to pledge his support to ISIS. In appreciation, an “ISIS-affiliated media group” dubbed Mateen a “lion of the caliphate” for slaughtering “infidels” in such spectacular numbers. Still, hours after the shooting, Mateen’s father swore to NBC News that the attack “had nothing to do with religion.” But the day after, he posted on Facebook that “God will punish those involved in homosexuality.” In the media eruption that followed the shooting, a scantly reported fact has been that in March, a British-born...

Omar Mateen shattered the tenuous, hard-fought sense of personal safety that many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans have begun to feel as the movement for equality has made significant gains in recent years. His bullets and the blood he left behind that early morning were a reminder that in many corners of the country, gay and transgender people are still regarded as sinners and second-class citizens who should be...

Simply because she is transparently not presented within the MSM story. In essence she appears as the beard of Omar. The New York Daily News outlines the reality that terrorist Omar Mateen was gay. Remember, the Orlando nightclub, Pulse, is approximately 85 miles from his home with his wife Noor Salman, and their 3-year-old son.

Officials say the shooting, the deadliest such attack in U.S. history, occurred at a gay-themed nightclub and is being investigated as a possible act of domestic terrorism. The alleged shooter, who was killed by police, was a U.S. citizen of Afghan descent, leading to fears of an Islamist extremist connection, though his motive has not yet been established. The attack saw a collision of a number of...

    t is, perhaps, a peculiar fact involving an obscure medical text, but it is one that is now taking on outsized importance: The World Health Organization, in a compendium of conditions and diseases, lists being transgender under the umbrella of mental illness. The WHO publishes a standardized coding system used around the globe to classify medical conditions, for research purposes and health-care billing. In the document, being transgender is currently included in a section with kleptomania (the overwhelming impulse to steal), trichotillomania (the compulsion to pull out one’s own hair), and pedophilia (a preference for having sex with children).

    They've been starring in a series of silly commercials over the past year as part of the brand's The Bud Light Party campaign. But on Wednesday Amy Schumer, 35, and Seth Rogen, 34, appeared in an ad that was about much more than simply promoting beer. The comical, 30-second clip had the stars - and the company - celebrating gay marriage, earning applause from fellow celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Eric Stonestreet, and Josh Hutcherson, who took to Twitter to share their gratitude.
  • Redefining What it Means to Be Human

    We are in the midst of open rebellion against God and the rejection of His created, divine order including the most basic truths in Scripture. Many think Bruce Jenner was the one who catapulted moral relativism into the spotlight; it was actually Oprah Winfrey. In 2008, she promoted "the first pregnant man," but she was actually a woman named Tracey who had a double mastectomy and doses of hormones for facial hair. She did not have genital reconstruction surgery at that time and has had three children. June is LGBT Pride Month and naturally, the President proudly announced his annual...

    (The link is not relevant. This is a "vanity" post of content not available on the web.) One of the DoD military commands promotes this garbage to its employees and contractors on the base internal website: The base commander personally promotes the LGBT celebration. Last year the commander invited a transgendered DoD speaker to a local LGBT celebration day event. This is the fourth year of this garbage.
