    TV producer Ryan Murphy called for stricter hate-crime laws during his Emmy acceptance speech Monday night. Murphy, who won the limited-series directing award for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” dedicated his award to the LGBTQ community. Murphy, the writer and executive behind "Pose" and "American Horror Story" added in his speech that "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" was in part about internalized and externalized homophobia. “One of out of every four LGBTQ people in this country will be the victim of a hate crime," he said, before naming some of the victims of spree killer Andrew Cunanan,...

    It was mid-May, about six weeks after Trump appointee Mari Stull began her new job as senior adviser at the State Department’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs. As senior adviser at the bureau, Stull was in charge of making sure President Trump’s agenda was represented at the many international organizations the U.S. participates in and mostly funds, such as the United Nations and its various agencies. Stull and her boss, Amb. Kevin Moley, had just left for a trip to Geneva for the World Health Assembly. Back at the State Department, Erin Barclay, a senior career diplomat at the IO...

    OK, here’s another one of those occasions when we try to avoid featuring Twitter randos, but some of the things they say just throw so clearly into perspective just how some on the Left actually think and feel that we can’t leave them alone. To jump on this train of thought, you have to go back a day and revisit a tweet from former Secretary of State John Kerry, who for some reason has kept up relations with Iran’s government even though he no longer holds public office. Plus he’s got a book to plug any chance he gets. [snip]...

    LGBT flag once hung over sanctuary of gay parish, displayed at Cdl. Bernardin's MassParishioners of Resurrection Parish in Chicago, Illinois, held a rainbow flag-burning event last week, cutting up and setting on fire an LGBT flag that once hung in the sanctuary at the parish's first Mass. The event was originally scheduled for Sept. 29, the Feast of St. Michael and the Archangels, but the Chicago archdiocese — heeding complaints by gay activists — called the pastor, Fr. Paul John Kalchik, and ordered him not to hold the event. A handful of parishioners took things into their own hands and...

    It's not a matter of if your church and pastor will face these kinds of questions. It's a matter of when. Here's a scenario: a same-sex couple or someone openly living in a same-sex relationship starts to attend your church. Maybe they've got a child from another relationship or a child conceived through IVF. Because your church practices infant baptism, they ask to have their child baptized. What do you do? I recently heard of a church that faced this exact situation. A lesbian couple who'd been attending asked to have their child baptized. The church had theological convictions about...

    MONTCLAIR, NJ — The Montclair Public School District is rolling out a new initiative this year: "all-gender restrooms" in each building. Superintendent Kendra Johnson alerted local parents and guardians about the restroom changes as part of a "Welcome Back" letter sent at the beginning of the school year. According to Johnson, 2018-19 will be the first year that the district has at least one "all-gender" restroom in each school building.

If it’s any consolation to our American readers, Goldsmiths University of London and its LGBTQ+ organization are in England, so the crazy is on the other side of the pond on this one.

    The young school-age puppet named Julia feels in her heart she's a boy and wants to be called Julian. Trans advocates say for many very young children and their families, tackling such gender-related questions are real and can be complicated. Enter Julian, the marionette at the heart of three bilingual videos designed to help provide youngsters and their families with the necessary tools to navigate such questions. Julian (the puppet goes by Julien in French) is the brainchild of the Jasmin Roy Sophie Desmarais Foundation, a Montreal-based organization dedicated to fighting bullying, which unveiled the free video capsules and educational...

According to The Sun, Strictly producers are keen to pave the way for same-sex dance routines - as advocated for by Dr Ranj Singh - after judges and contestants alike backed the idea.

    Two Malaysian Muslim women convicted under Islamic laws of attempting to have sex were caned Monday in a rare public whipping that was slammed by lawmakers and rights activists as a form of torture. Lawyers and activists said the women, aged 22 and 32, were seated on stools facing the judges and given six strokes from a light rattan cane on their backs by female prison officers. More than 100 people witnessed the caning in a Shariah courtroom in northeast Terengganu state, they said. Muslim Lawyers' Association deputy president Abdul Rahim Sinwan said unlike caning under civil laws, the punishment...

    Two more news stories this week highlighted the Maoist PC Revolution that is laying waste to whatever remains of the US military’s fighting spirit and warrior culture. If you think Secretary of Defense James Mattis is going to anything to stop the lunatic social engineering policies from the Obama administration, think again. The Mad Dog’s Pentagon looks a lot like Ash and Trash Carter’s Pentagon. In Mad Eunuch Mattis’ Pentagon, Diversity is Job One… The first story, from the traveling circus on water called the 2018 US Navy and reported so gleefully in the Diversity Gazette, aka the Navy Times,...

    A TRANSGENDER woman has spoken of her joy at becoming the oldest person in Britain to have surgery. Ruth Rose, 85, had a reassignment op four years ago after her doctor told her she could be considered for the full procedure. She has defended the £4,000 cost of the surgery by sitting on an NHS advisory board and volunteering for charities that support old people. Ruth told the BBC: “It is only in the past 15 years that this has become acceptable. Before that people thought it was just for freaks.” Ruth had the surgery after living as a woman...
  • Apple blocks the Gay Pride watch face in Russia

    People have been wondering for some time why they couldn't access the rainbow watch face in Russia, and now iOS developer Guilherme Rambo has revealed why on Twitter: "The Apple Watch pride face is hard coded to not show up if the paired iPhone is using the Russian Locale." ... It's very likely this is a result of Russia's 2013 'gay propaganda' law - a law which has seen all LGBTQ parades, art, speech and general support completely prohibited in the country in the name of protecting young generations from 'propaganda regarding sexual relations'. This particular law violates human rights...

    NEWARK — Recent allegations against former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick include reports that he made sexual advances toward seminarians during his tenure as bishop of Metuchen and archbishop of Newark. CNA recently spoke to six priests of the Archdiocese of Newark, and one priest member of a religious order who was a seminarian in New York in the early 1970s, while McCarrick was a priest of the Archdiocese of New York. Citing archdiocesan policy and concerns about ecclesiastical repercussions for their candor, the priests agreed to speak to CNA only under the condition of anonymity. The priests spoke individually to CNA,...

    Italian newspaper “La Veritá” leading tomorrow’s Sunday edition with former nuncio to the U.S. Carlo Maria Viganó saying that Antipope Bergoglio knew about McCarrick’s sexual abuse and covered it up because Viganó told him of it while he was nunzio to the U.S. and Bergoglio ignored him.  Viganó apparently calls for Bergoglio to “resign”.Viganó was Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S. from October ARSH 2011 until April ARSH 2016.Looks like Pietro Parolin is making his move against Bergoglio.The Italian Trads have screengrabs HERE.That headline translates as:THE POPE KNEW OF THE SEXUAL ABUSES BY THE GAY CARDINAL BUT HE COVERED THEM UPThe...

    Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, who served at the papal nuncio (that is, Vatican ambassador) to the United States from 2011-2016, has dropped an atomic bomb on Francis’s papacy, charging that “corruption has reached the very top of the Church’s hierarchy.”In a lengthy statement, Vigano says that Francis has known for years about Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s sexual abuse, but brought him into the pontifical inner circle anyway, and sent him around the world on papal missions.In fact, says Vigano, the Roman curia has known about McCarrick since the year 2000, but McCarrick was protected by gay supporters honeycombed throughout the Vatican....
