    Thousands of people have gathered at Parnell Square in Dublin city centre for an anti-abortion rally. Organisers say the theme and aim of this year's march, titled 'Rally for Life', is to speak up for babies with a disability. It is being organised by Youth Defence, the Life Institute, and Precious Youth. At 2.30pm demonstrators began making their way down O'Connell Street towards their finishing point outside Leinster House. Gardaí estimated the crowd for today's rally at between 5,000 and 8,000, while organisers said the figure was between 25,000 and 30,000. In a statement following today’s rally, Amnesty Ireland said...
  • What Would Jesus Say About Homosexual Sex?

    This whole perversion of the Word of God began when Luther said each person should interpret the Bible for themselves.  This has led to so called’ christians’ condoning and accepting homosexual sex and ‘marriage’.  Luther is ‘turning in his grave’.  He said that ‘having sex without having children was the sin of sodomy too.’ This slippery slide where christians accepting this perversion began with the condoning of divorce.  It was well brought out when CNN asked Donald Trump what he believed about homosexual ‘marriage’.  Trump responded by saying he is in favor of ‘traditional marriage’.  They then called him on...

    After being fired for writing what’s been described as an “anti-gay” book, former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran says he “absolutely” wants his job back. “In the United States of America, Americans should not have to choose between keeping your job and living out your faith,” Cochran told The Daily Signal in an exclusive interview. “And that’s the position the city of Atlanta actually has taken—that I have to have a choice to live out my faith or to keep my job.” Cochran was fired in January 2015 for publishing a men’s devotional book for a Baptist church group.

    By trying to resolve policy matters, the U.S. Supreme Court "stopped being an umpire," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. Cruz said the justices have become team players: "They put on an Obama jersey, they got out the eraser, they erased terms in the (Obamacare) statute and rewrote it, joining the Obama administration. ... In a period of 24 hours, we had two decisions in the Supreme Court where a majority of the justices violated their judicial oaths," he told NBC's Chuck Todd. "In one, they ignored the text of federal law -- they rewrote...

    Kelly Shackelford’s debate with Evan Wolfson on Fox News Sunday highlights the battle lines for religious liberty in America now that the Supreme Court has grossly overstepped its authority by declaring same sex marriage a constitutional right. The issue is whether religious liberty extends to how you earn your living, get an education, and run a business. For years to come, the fight for many Christians will be on whether their right to the free exercise of religion includes the right to earn a paycheck without violating their conscience. Televised debates need to focus on the fierce debate over whether...

    On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which concerned whether same-sex marriage is a right protected by the U.S. Constitution. Although the case did not address the right to bear arms, some pro-gun advocates began debating whether the Court’s reasoning and analysis had application to national concealed carry licensing reciprocity. This is a reasonable question. If states that formerly did not sanction same-sex marriage now have to recognize all marriages from states that do, shouldn’t that also mean restrictive “may issue” concealed carry jurisdictions have to recognize concealed carry...

    The GOP-controlled Senate is on track this year to confirm the fewest judges since 1969, a dramatic escalation of the long-running partisan feud over the ideological makeup of federal courts. The standoff, if it continues through the 2016 elections as expected, could diminish the stamp that President Barack Obama leaves on the judiciary — a less conspicuous but critical part of his legacy. Practically, the makeup of lower-level courts could directly affect a number of Obama’s policies expected to face legal challenges from conservatives. Republicans appear willing to absorb criticism that they’re interfering with the prerogative of a president to...

    SALT LAKE CITY — The Episcopal Church has completed its embrace of gay rights, changing church law to allow same-sex religious marriages throughout the denomination, just days after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide. The new policy won overwhelming approval from the top Episcopal legislative body Wednesday, following decades of debate and conflict. It came 12 years after the denomination blazed a trail by electing the first openly gay bishop. "To finally get to this day is an incredible moment," said the Rev. Cynthia Black, of Morristown, New Jersey, a lesbian who has been campaigning for gay acceptance...

    Last week, Wisconsin Congressman and recent Vice-Presidential aspirant Paul Ryan appeared on the venerable CBS-TV program “Face the Nation” and stated that the Obamacare battle is temporarily over, and that the other side won. He stated that Obamacare was a bad policy and would “…collapse under its own weight” and that our side needs to settle in and wait for this eventuality to come to pass. Congressman Ryan was not, as some have supposed, counseling surrender in the health care fight. He was advising the conservatives that they must take the long view, and give the Obamacare architects enough time, and...

    Despite the Supreme Court’s repeated attempts to prop it up, Obamacare is collapsing. This is obvious not merely to the majority of Americans who have always disapproved of the law, but also to an increasing number of progressives. Consequently, we are once again hearing calls for single-payer health care. Most advocates of this system, including Hillary Clinton’s main competitor for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination, favor Medicare-for-All. They want, in other words, to put all Americans on the government program that covers the elderly and disabled. An excellent antidote for this simplistic solution is David Hogberg’s new book, Medicare’s Victims:...

    The Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the country is the end of the legal discussion on the topic, at least for now. It isn’t, however, the end of the discussion on marriage. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion rests on four principles, which according to him “demonstrate that the reasons marriage is fundamental under the Constitution apply with equal force to same-sex couples.” His first and third principles raise some intriguing possibilities, and his fourth principle opens the floodgates to a world of fun. The first premise of this Court’s relevant precedents is that the right to personal choice...

To sum up, Justice Thomas wrote in his dissent on Obergefell v. Hodges (the gay marriage case, for those who have hid their heads in a bag for the last two weeks) that the government doesn't bestow dignity and humanity...

    Just because Takei had the ability to memorize such great lines “Aye aye, captain,” does not mean he has any smarts. And, as far as intelligence in actors goes, Takei is no Ronald Reagan. He’s not even a Kim Kardashian As everyone who does not depend on the left wing mainstream media for news knows by now, actor and gay rights spokesman, George Takei, is not too pleased with what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his dissenting opinion in the gay marriage case, Obergefell v. Hodges. Of the only black justice on the Supreme Court of the United...

    CannaCamp couldn't cultivate kush resort after national derision becomes a real downerA planned pot-friendly ranch resort in southwest Colorado has been snuffed before it opened. The 170-acre CannaCamp resort touted weed-friendly activities such as hiking and fishing. But a deal with the landowner fell through, and the marijuana-tourism company promoting CannaCamp announced Thursday that the resort won’t open after all. The MaryJane Group, which runs marijuana-friendly inns in Denver and Silverthorne, announced that it hopes to find a new home for CannaCamp by 2016. Guests who already booked stays starting at $395 per person per night are being offered stays...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), the most conservative presidential candidate for 2016, was recently interviewed by Hispanic TV channel Univision on a variety of subjects including the recent U.S. Supreme court opinion on counterfeit marriage. The interview turned out to be a great opportunity to inform the Hispanic community about the U.S. Constitution and conservative values. The Univision Leftist interviewer Jorge Ramos seemed to think “love wins” (translation: “perverted lust wins”), but Senator Cruz said that (like any patriotic American) he would rather the U.S. Constitution wins. He pointed out that the U.S. Supreme Court opinion on counterfeit marriage was “fundamentally...

    WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum admonished his competitors Thursday for their reactions to the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage, saying as president he would fight to repeal the ruling and implement a law protecting religious freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment. “Many are moving on,” Santorum said of Republican reactions to the court ruling. “Well, not me. This will not stand.” The former Pennsylvania senator gave the keynote speech at a gala for the National Organization for Marriage – a conservative organization that defines marriage as between a man and a woman – Thursday in Washington.

    I owe an apology. On the eve of this Independence Day, I have a renewed sense of what this country stands for, and how I personally could help achieve it. The promise of equality and freedom is one that all of us have to work for, at all times. I know this as a survivor of the Japanese American internment, which each day drives me only to strive harder to help fulfill that promise for future generations. I recently was asked by a reporter about Justice Clarence Thomas’s dissent in the marriage equality cases, in which he wrote words that...

    As the Girl Scouts USA continues to hemorrhage members and money because of its continued support of what many see as extreme ideological ideas, Girl Scout leaders from around the world converged on the Vatican to meet with Pope Francis, only to receive a gentle but firm scolding on gender ideology. The optics were clear. The group, which has staked out positions in opposition to Christian teaching on abortion and human sexuality, met with Francis hoping the thousands of daughters and moms exiting Scouting would have a second thought.

    Sheriff David Clarke Jr. of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin One of America’s most popular sheriffs has issued a “wake-up call” for conservatives following the Supreme Court’s two landmark decisions on same-sex marriage and Obamacare. The way Sheriff David Clarke sees it, the wild horse has broken loose and is halfway out of the barn, threatening to trample the crops. If the court can redefine marriage and force people to buy health care from a private business, there is nothing it can’t do, said Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, and frequent Fox News contributor. “The thing that bothers me...
