    Planned Parenthood has found a new niche that could prove nearly as controversial as providing abortions: helping transgendered people through the sex-change process. In the wake of last summer’s undercover videos that appeared to show Planned Parenthood officials selling baby body parts for money – which is illegal – legislators in several states have looked for ways to deny funding to the women’s health giant. While Planned Parenthood has denied any wrongdoing, they have stopped accepting reimbursements for providing fetal parts to researchers. However, the gender reassignment process may enable the organization to make up the lost cash by other...

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;(Romans 1:25-27)We live in baffling times.

    Today the Obama Justice Department warned North Carolina state officials that their state stands to lose millions of dollars in federal funds unless they change a measure limiting access to bathrooms for transgender people. In a letter to Gov. Pat McCrory, DOJ contends that they and North Carolina would be in violation of federal civil rights law if the bill passes. According to the Justice Department, the state law violates federal law under Title VII of the U.S. Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. The Obama administration says that with the passage of House Bill...

    The Department of Justice told North Carolina's governor on Wednesday that a new state law limiting restroom access for transgender people violates the U.S. Civil Rights Act. In a letter to Republican Governor Pat McCrory that was seen by Reuters, the Justice Department said the state was "engaging in a pattern or practice of discrimination against transgender state employees," and it had until Monday to address the issue. McCrory's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Less than 24 hours after Boston City Hall raised a flag in solidarity with the transgender community for the first time, a Polish flag was seen flying in its place. At a flag raising ceremony Monday, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said that he was proud to fly the flag for the first time in state history, and that the city would continue to do so until all people were deemed equal under Massachusetts law. Then, on Tuesday morning, Universal Hub’s Adam Gaffin tweeted a photo of the swap, noting the quick turnaround.

Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion...

Yes, there was a third option. Hundreds of parents who signed their children up to attend primary school in the fall were left furious after receiving informational literature from Brighton and Hove City Council which included a request that their four-year-old choose a gender “identity,” reports The Daily Mail UK.

    Almost all counterarguments against allowing transgender individuals into sex-segregated spaces focus on the high likelihood of what harm will be caused to girls and women. However, to my knowledge there have been very few if any well-developed cases regarding the ramifications of allowing female transgender individuals into male sex-segregated spaces and what could happen to boys and men. Furthermore, the vast majority of rebuttals to allowing transgenders into sex-segregated spaces have focused almost solely on private areas such as restrooms and locker-rooms without further emphasis on incidents of privately owned, male-only businesses that have been coerced into accepting transgender individuals....

    With regard to its designs for our nation, debasement has been the name of the game for the political left for a long time. While volumes could be written on the moral debasement alone catalyzed by the left, America’s standing in the world, our economy, our educational system, our worldview and collective self-image, among many other things, have been targets for incremental debasement by the left. When liberals began targeting the sexual attitudes of our population through mass media and junk science such as Alfred Kinsey’s perverted sex studies, suddenly the worst thing one could be was a prude, and...

In North Carolina, Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Pearl Jam and Ani DiFranco have canceled shows in response to a law regulating transgender bathroom access. While the celebrity response is drawing considerable attention, the travel industry in each state is more concerned about lower-profile visitors: the everyday tourists who have already begun canceling trips or planning vacations elsewhere.

Beck asked Cruz how he'd argue that his position isn't aimed at targeting transgender people but rather at "the heterosexual pervert" who would try to flout gender-specific bathroom laws. Cruz pointed to his two daughters, ages 5 and 8, arguing that the younger one "knows...

    The rights of transgender individuals have been in the news in a big way lately and one of the nation's largest retailers is now weighing in. In a post on its website Tuesday, Target reiterated an existing policy: that transgender employees and customers are welcome to use the bathroom or fitting room that corresponds with their gender identity. The post also expressed support for federal legislation protecting the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals. "Inclusivity is a core belief at Target," the post said. "It's something we celebrate. We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make...

    Republican Donald Trump, appearing on Thursday's "Today" show, said transgenders should be allowed to "use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate." "So if Caitlyn Jenner were to walk into Trump Tower and want to use the bathroom, you would be fine with her using any bathroom she chooses?" host Matt Lauer asked Trump. "That is correct," Trump said.

    BOSTON — Former Red Sox pitcher and ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling has been fired from his position as an analyst for ESPN following comments he made on social media earlier this week regarding the bills going through several states to require people to use the bathroom of their assigned gender. The bill impacts the transgender community, because many of those individuals prefer to use the bathroom of the gender with which they identify.

    Why all of a sudden has the Transgender issue in the bathroom become the latest craze of the lib-left? Why is it that there are few, if any, Transgender Bathrooms in the White House, the House of Commons, at Brussels EU headquarters, the UN or in the hallowed halls of any other nation’s ivory towers? Many of the occupants of these edifices, who spent taxpayers’ billions in renovation projects, didn’t see the march of the transgenders coming? It’s because like taxes, bylaws, decrees, ordinances and rules sent down the pike from authorities the world over, the forced use of transgender...

    Donald Trump had waded into one of the most bizarre controversies to have roiled American politics, that being whether or not transgendered people should be allowed to use the public bathroom according to the gender they identify with rather the one that biology has assigned them. North Carolina recently passed a law that mandates that people use the bathroom according to which gender is recorded on their birth certificate. The law has caused an uproar in the LBGT community. Some businesses and performance artists have decided to boycott the state, even those who do business and perform in countries that...

    Donald J. Trump said Thursday that transgender people should be allowed to use whatever bathroom they feel most comfortable with — including at Trump Tower in New York. Dipping into a contentious issue by taking a stand many Republicans oppose, Mr. Trump told a town-hall-style event, hosted by NBC’s “Today” show at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, that when people go to the restroom, they should “use the bathroom they feel is appropriate.” Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner, was responding to a question about a bill that North Carolina’s governor signed into law last month that bars individuals in the...

    Donald Trump says transgender people should be able to "use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate." On NBC's Today show Thursday morning, the GOP front-runner said he opposes North Carolina's "very strong" bathroom bill, which allows businesses to prohibit transgender people from doing just that. "North Carolina did something that was very strong and they're paying a big price. And there's a lot of problems." Trump said.

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Thursday said front-runner Donald Trump had defied “common sense” and embraced political correctness by coming out against North Carolina’s law barring people from using public restrooms of the opposite sex. “He said he thought men should be able to go into the girls bathroom if they want,” scoffed Mr. Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas. “Let me ask you, have we going stark raving mad? This is political correctness. This is nonsense.”

    We are in the midst of a top-down sexual revolution, being forced on the public by the massed power of media, corporations, and governments in thrall to the small but powerful sexual minority intent on redefining sexuality.  Those who dare to oppose them, especially with mockery, can see their livelihoods destroyed.  They cannot handle mockery, because their latest cause is absurd and based on lies. Curt Schilling, a hero to Red Sox Nation and a highly regarded baseball analyst for CNN, dared to protest and mock the forcible intrusion of males on women’s restrooms.  As The New York Times...
