    SPECIES: The Virgin (Sexus Nontilnuptials) PREDATOR: The Media (Sexus Perpetual Obsessicus) METHOD OF ATTACK: Exploitation and Extinction Peer through a leafy curtain deep in the Amazon and you might just catch a glimpse of an elusive specimen: “the virgin.” Though rare, this foreign species manages to survive in some of the world’s most hostile ecosystems, constantly threatened by its natural enemy, the media. The media preys upon virgins for profit and mere entertainment – to dismiss them as soon as they conform. Seen through the field glasses of Hollywood’s “Very Good Girls,” or MTV’s “Virgin Territory,” the virgin differs from “the human.” Humans “come-of-age”...

    [...]The constitutional right to be free from unlawful search and seizure is based on the psychological need to maintain control over personal information and behavior. The involuntary loss of privacy and dignity regarding sex is a central aspect of the psychopathology of American sex totalitarianism. And it has been inflicting itself on the American mind from the highest offices of government. Sexually oriented feminists can be divided into two generations. The central purpose of the first generation was to legalize abortion and normalize sex outside marriage. Gloria Steinem is still the leader of that generation. She, who is often seen...

    Abortion activists claim pro-lifers are engaging in a war on women: by passing legislation to protect women and unborn children from abortion. But a new expose video catches a Planned Parenthood staffer engaging in her own war on women. The pro-life group Live Action released the third installment today in its SexEd investigative series, showing a Planned Parenthood staffer in Portland, Oregon offering disturbing sex counseling to someone she thinks is a fifteen-year-old girl. The video clearly shows the counselor encouraging the young girl to allow herself to be victimized in violent sexual encounters with her partner. The staffer tells...

    A teen in Alberta, Canada, was forced to sit through a sex education class taught by a Christian group, a class that she says advocated abstinence and included such teachings as condoms dont work and gonorrhea can kill you in three days, among other examples of flagrant misinformation. So Emily Dawson and her mother Kathy filed a human rights complaint against the Edmonton Public School Board. The board has now dumped the Christian group that taught the abstinence education class, the Edmonton Pregnancy Care Center, an anti-abortion activist group. The group says that what it teaches in the class is...

    People who disagree with same-sex marriage and birth-control use have been met with accusations of bigotry. Are some Christians being unfairly shamed out of the public sphere? Is evangelical Christian morality still viable in American public life? This is the question lurking in recent debates over religious-liberty issues, from the Supreme Courts Hobby Lobby decision to the Christian bakers who object to baking cakes for gay weddings. In discussions of these cases, objections to same-sex marriage and contraception are described as a retreat from secular society. And in some cases, evangelicals actually have retreated: Since the Boy Scouts of America...

No, its not the revelation that the gay and lesbian population may be slightly smaller 1.6 percent than many scholars have believed; population-based surveys tend to fluctuate. The results of the report make sense to me, and since others have already described them, I will refrain from repeating them at length here. The good news is that the surveys questions were administered to over 34,000 Americans, randomly sampled, enabling scholars to get quality information about even small communities.

Now a panel of U.S. bishops has released the results of a two-year investigation into Girl Scouts problematic messaging, ties to Planned Parenthood, and continued advocacy of so-called reproductive rights by the organizations international affiliate, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). Their findings indicate that the concerns continue to persist, regarding the problematic connections between the Girl Scouts...

In the second episode of a series entitled SexEd: Planned Parenthoods Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids, a Live Action volunteer went undercover at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado, to see how workers would react to her questions about Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission (BDSM). Unfortunately, this particular employee was all too eager to give the young girl advice about how she and...

According to the study, conducted by Barna, over 88 percent of American homes contain a Bible. In fact, the average is 4.7 copies per household. Now, I should note that a young non-religious friend once came home from school with a bright green Gideons New Testament that she later touted as a reserve of fine rolling papers, which may explain why...

    ALEXANDRIA, La. (BP) -- There are atheists and liberals, some who are both, who believe there is no need for God in order for morality to be maintained in a society. They argue that people can act morally apart from a supreme authority. I agree that people can act morally apart from God's standard. However, the real question is why should they? If there is no supreme authority -- no God -- then why behave morally? If there is no God, there are no objective standards for moral behavior. The logical progression leads to anarchy. Everyone does what is right...

VATICAN – Pope Francis strongly condemned “gender ideology” in a private conversation with Austrian Bishop Andreas Laun earlier this year, the bishop related in a recent essay. In doing so, the pope follows in the footsteps of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI. Nearing the end of his pontificate, the pope emeritus spoke twice about gender ideology as “a negative trend for humankind,” and a “profound falsehood,” which “it is the duty of pastors of the Church” to put the faithful “on guard against.” Bishop Laun, auxiliary bishop of Salzburg, wrote...

    If you want to teach at a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, regardless of your religion, you must be willing to sign a detailed morality clause that critics say focuses on "pelvic issues." The revised contracts forbid teachers from -- among other things -- living together or having sex outside of marriage, using in-vitro fertilization, a gay "lifestyle," or publicly supporting any of those things. The system's 2,200 current teachers must sign the agreement to stay on the job. "It is an embarrassment and a scandal, and will drive even more Catholics away from an institution so out...

    ST. CHARLES, MO, May 8, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) Parents in Missouri are outraged at school district officials for allowing an e-book with images of people engaging in sexual intercourse in school libraries. Francis Howell School District is facing a backlash for placing "It's Perfectly Normal," a book that includes images of naked people, intercourse, and other pornographic material, in its libraries. One parent told a local reporter that most parents "were shocked" when he "showed this to" them, and that "their next reaction was outrage."

    In truth, the most salient fact of contemporary Catholic life in the West is the way it is pervaded by the pattern of saying things and then acting as if something else were true. (Im learning, slowly. Everything below that is sarcasm or the voice of a liar, heretic or apostate is in GREEN.) Indeed. This sentence, penned earlier this week by a secular columnist almost sums up what pretty much everyone is too cowardly to say. In fact, it is the base premise underlying the derivative statement above that is the real 800 pound gorilla sitting squarely in the...

    State District Judge Jeanine Howard of Dallas has removed herself from a controversial rape case after questioning the victim's innocence and sentencing the admitted rapist to community service at a rape crisis center. Yes, really. Howard voluntary recused herself following an interview with the Dallas Morning News last week, in which she said the girl, 14 at the time, "wasn't the victim she claimed to be," and the attacker, then 18, "is not your typical sex offender." The judge, a Democrat running unopposed for reelection in the fall, cited medical records that showed the girl's past sexual activity and that...

    Throughout history, religion has sanctioned and fueled the persecution of homosexuality. That dynamic may be drawing to an end. Polls, clerics, and denominations are shifting. Theology is adapting. Resistance to same-sex marriage is dwindling, and theres no end in sight. For 15 years, the Ethics and Public Policy Center has hosted the Faith Angle Forum, a regular conference on religion and public life. Several weeks ago, the group met again to discuss current issues. Transcripts of the conference have just been posted on EPPCs website. They underscore the extent of the anti-gay collapse. The first session, led by papal biographer...

    Writing for TFP, Peter Miller reports: Officials at the University of Notre Dame revoke permission for pro-marriage table, tell young Catholics to cease and desist promoting natural marriage on campus.

But that permission was revoked for some odd reason. Police officers arrived soon after...

    A pamphlet, intended for use in schools, has been called homosexual pornography and indoctrination by some concerned parents in the region of Reggio Emilia. Earlier this month, the national homosexual lobby group Arcigay distributed a leaflet at the Istituto Superiore Cattaneo-Dall'Aglio, a high school in Castelnuovo Monti, that included highly explicit language giving information on the best method for homosexuals to have sex without risk. The leaflet was aimed at children up to 15 years and includes instructions on oral and anal sex and the advice to get a gay doctor, and be vaccinated against Hepatitis B. It also details...

    “It just comes down to love. I mean, if you love your child then you should do anything in the world for your child. And it’s as simple and as pure as that.” This is not parental love. This is misguided, tragic indulgence. It’s as simple and pure as that. Parental love prepares a child for adulthood–momentary happiness has little to do with it.Parental love sees beyond what a child currently wants, or thinks he wants, and gives him what he needs. What this child needs is unconditional love and a chance for his brain to mature and his...

    BOSTON, MA, April 24, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) Three married lesbians in Massachusetts have announced they are expecting the first of several children intended for their polygamous union. But marriage advocates say the story confirms their warnings about the slippery slope created by redefining marriage and granting legal privileges based on a self-identified characteristic like sexual orientation. The three women Doll, 30; Brynn, 32; and Kitten, 27 are not legally married to all the members of the polyamorous coupling, something not permitted under state or federal law. Brynn and Doll have been together since 2009. However, it is Brynn...

    Two Boys Kissing will stay in Fauquier High Schools library. FHS parent Jessica Wilson made an official complaint to remove the book from the school library on Feb. 7, because she believed that the cover of the book condoned public displays of affection, which are against school policy. Marie Miller, a teacher at FHS and the advisor for the school publication The Falconer said that she believes that those opposing the book were doing so not because of its lack of appropriateness for the students, but because it is a story about gay teens. If the focus of this book...
