    Prevalence of homosexuality in men is stable throughout time since many carry the genes Around half of all heterosexual men and women potentially carry so-called homosexuality genes that are passed on from one generation to the next. This has helped homosexuality to be present among humans throughout history and in all cultures, even though homosexual men normally do not have many descendants who can directly inherit their genes. According to previous research, sexual orientation is influenced to a degree by genetic factors and is therefore heritable. Chaladze says this poses a problem from an evolutionary perspective, because homosexual men tend...

Is it becoming more and more difficult to make excuses for Donald Trump? Did you know that Scott Walker is a loser because he did not raise taxes to balance his budget?

But I have a few questions: Why does it take so much money to keep FR going? I have numerous sites that cost a couple hundred dollars a year to keep going. Why is there censorship?

    Recently, Tom Scholl, who identified himself as a pastor of churches in Ohio and New York, as well as holding positions in several ecumenical organizations, wrote a 3-part article for my local newspaper, The Macon Telegraph, entitled -What the Koran says about Christianity.- I thought it would be an interesting series to read, but I was greatly disappointed and not a little irked. It could have been an apologia about the goodness of Islam, using selective passages from The Koran and being charitable to some elements of Christianity. But his apologia went further than the usual arguments and Koranic exhortations...

    Senator Ted Cruz is the most interesting candidate in the US presidential race right now. As a darling of the Tea Party, in 2012, he swept into the Senate, representing Texas, having campaigned on deeply conservative principles and policies. At the time, many dismissed him as a rabble-rouser who would wind up as a less successful version of George W Bush. Now, not only is he leading in the polls in Iowa, but he has also beat out senator Marco Rubio as the dark horse of the race thus far. Cruz has been criticised for having some of the most...

    In the conversation with the donor, Cruz was asked if gay marriage was a top-three priority for him and he said it wasn't. In a recording provided to POLITICO, Cruz answers a flat "No" when asked whether fighting gay marriage is a "top-three priority", an answer that pleased his socially moderate hosts but could surprise some of his evangelical backers. By late summer, she said, the River Valley Teenage Republicans were a grassroots advocacy group working to put Cruz over the top.

The battle for Sana'a, which cost thousands of Yemeni lives, was declared a victory for pro-Christmas (PC) troops once soldiers raised a Christmas tree on the nation's highest mountain, Jabal an Nabi Shu'ayb.

But what about "White Women", don't they share the same beliefs as "White Men"? White Women Marry White Men, so why can't the far left/liberals blame the women as well? Maybe it's a "Phony Scandal" to get the "Dumbfounded and Democrats" to vote Democrat in 2016 being all White Men are racists?

Brandon Bostian is the 32-year-old gay man who lawyered up after a deadly derailment in Philadelphia. The train was reportedly going twice the speed limit. ABC 6 previously reported that “Brandon Boshan,” not Brandon Bostian, was to blame for the deadly crash. (They have since taken down the link.) Bostian is a gay activist who previously worked at Target as a cashier before joining Amtrak, according to his LinkedIn.

    Psychology Today ^ | 3/22/10 | Satoshi Kanazawa
    It is difficult to define a whole school of political ideology precisely, but one may reasonably define liberalism (as opposed to conservatism) in the contemporary United States as the genuine concern for the welfare of genetically unrelated others and the willingness to contribute larger proportions of private resources for the welfare of such others. In the modern political and economic context, this willingness usually translates into paying higher proportions of individual incomes in taxes toward the government and its social welfare programs. Liberals usually support such social welfare programs and higher taxes to finance them, and conservatives usually oppose them....

John McCain has called him a wacko bird, which again makes Cruz more likable. Anyone who annoys McCain must be good.

    MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WMBF) - A Lowcountry woman got quite the surprise when her Boston Terrier began nursing orphan kittens. Shannon Williams said her daughter found the litter of kittens in the woods behind their home in Mount Pleasant. After bringing the litter inside, Memory, her 5-year-old Boston Terrier, began nurturing and cuddling with the days-old kittens. “We laid the kittens on a dog bed, and [Memory] cuddled with them,” Williams recalled. Meanwhile, Williams went to the pet supply store for milk replacement. She said she didn't need the supplement long, “One week later, [Memory's] milk came in.” Memory had...

    Consumer doggie DNA testing is old hat at this point, having been around since 2007. But cat-lovers who wish to decipher their pet's breed are out of luck -- no such tests exist for felines. That fact reflects the state of the underlying science. Since the first full dog genome was sequenced ten years ago, geneticists have identified hundreds of genes behind canine diseases and physical traits. By comparison, just a handful of such genes have been identified in cats. But a group of geneticists is working to close this gap by sequencing 99 domestic cats. This week the researchers...

There has been a good amount of coverage regarding Brittany Maynard's assisted suicide, and even more opinions thrown all over news websites and social media.

I understand that most Christians would be opposed to the act purely for religious reasons, but do those who oppose assisted suicide have any valid reasons without appealing to religious doctrine?

That is a fact. It is being reported that he officially renounced his Canadian Citizenship today but what about his Cuban Citizenship inherited from his father Rafael? Why is this being ignored by the media as well as his supporters? Don't get me wrong, I like Ted Cruz but this issue needs to be addressed.

    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 there’s 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 EPPC’s website. They underscore the extent of the anti-gay collapse. The first session, led by papal biographer...

    Less than 24 hours after Arizona’s governor vetoed a bill that had been criticized as anti-gay, similar legislation in Georgia and Mississippi are hitting new roadblocks. Georgia state senator Josh McKoon conceded on Thursday that support for his religious-freedom bill is evaporating, 11Alive Atlanta reports. He told the Huffington Post that a committee vote on his legislation, previously scheduled for next Monday, has been taken off the calendar. McKoon said his bill merely protects religious rights of Georgia residents, but critics argued it would allow business owners to refuse services to gays based on religious beliefs. In Mississippi, the state...

    Rhonda Swan, a Cox Newspaper columnist wrote a column that appeared in the Chattanooga Times Free-Press in which she defended same-sex marriage and attacked the Bible and common sense. The column was riddled with assumptions, speculations, distortions, and mistakes dealing with the Bible and same-sex marriage. You know–the normal thing that passes for journalism today. She is an author and accomplished journalist and received the “reporter of the year” award from the National Association of Black Journalists’ New England chapter. So she is not a novice; however, she is mistaken, misinformed, and malicious. It is a misnomer to characterize same-sex...

    On Thursday, Democrat tool Chad Henderson claimed to have enrolled in ObamaCare while most others' attempts failed. News organizations eagerly lapped up his story. Apparently, though, the story was "too good to check," because when someone finally did, it fell apart, discrediting Big Media, the Democrats, and ObamaCare. Conservative and libertarian websites now are reporting the corrected story, and even some Big Media outlets reluctantly are reporting it. But almost as devastating to the left is Mr. Henderson's confession that he is being paid to post pro-Democrat propaganda on the internet: Secondly, I work for an organization that pays me...

    The B and Q lines in Brooklyn were unexpectedly delayed today, but frustrated commuters might be mollified to know it was because of kitties. A pair of runaway kittens were cavorting on the tracks, and the MTA had to turn off the third rail so officers could chase them down. For once, a listicle of cat photos might actually constitute news coverage! After the two kittens were spotted on the tracks near the Church Avenue station in Brooklyn at 11:06 a.m., the MTA shut off power to the third rail on a section of the subway’s Brighton Line, suspending regular...

    In December 2012, the Red Cross and an affiliated organization known as the Water Reference Center (WRC) performed a medical field test in the African country of Uganda. The test was to determine if a popular “Miracle Cure” had any impact on malaria, a disease that is estimated to kill one child every minute in Africa alone. To the surprise of the Red Cross and their staff, it cured all 154 malaria patients that took part in the test―with no side effects.
