    Pope Francis reportedly used the term “faggotry” (“frociaggine”) again during a meeting with 160 priests where the Pontiff also discussed the issue of homosexual men entering seminaries. According to major Italian news outlets, Francis told the priests present during the closed-door meeting at Salesian Pontifical University on Tuesday that “there is an air of faggotry in the Vatican.”

    In the past couple of years I have noticed there is a complete lake of regard for other posters on this site. Not only that but swearing seems to be tolerated. In the past day I have been called gay, a lair, that I am talking out of my *** and I am full of ****. Do we even have to go into the fighting on any thread about Ukraine or Russia. Even hard facts from multiple sources no longer seem to matter. Instead it is whoever can come up with the snarkiest reply.

According to NBC News, the lawsuit comes as part of a “yearslong effort” by the gay couple to get the Big Apple to amend its health benefits. In the lawsuit, the couple alleges that the current policies in place are discriminatory. The gay couple spearheading the lawsuit reportedly plans to utilize IVF and surrogacy to have kids (via NBC News):Corey Briskin and Nicholas Maggipinto said they have been talking about...

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) is seeking a 40-year prison sentence for David DePape, the man convicted of attacking now-former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) husband in October 2022. Federal prosecutors said Friday that the sentence would “reflect the nature and circumstances of the offense,” USA Today reported on Saturday. When the initial incident happened at the Pelosi residence in San Francisco, California, police were dispatched to the scene and later said DePape attacked Pelosi’s husband, Paul, with a hammer, Breitbart News noted.

    Construction begins on Canada's new LGBTQ2+ National Monument. The large monument will be located on the northeast side of Wellington Street by the Portage Bridge, next to the Ottawa River and close to the capital city’s Judicial Precinct. The design of the monument, named “Thunderhead,” was chosen in 2022 following a design competition that chose a concept by a Winnipeg-based team, comprised of architectural design firm Public City, visual artists Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan, and Albert McLeod, who is an Indigenous and Two-Spirited People subject-matter expert and advisor. According to the federal government’s description, the design draws on the...

    Marvel and Disney are once again courting controversy by casting a female actress to take on the typically male “Fantastic Four” role of the Silver Surfer in the upcoming reboot. Actress Julia Garner has been picked to play a female version of the iconic comic book character and Herald of Galactus, Deadline magazine reported. Sources told the outlet that the Emmy-winning “Ozark” star will play the Shalla-Bal version of the Silver Surfer from the comics. Bounding Into Comics reported that Marvel Studios dived deep into the comic book lore to find justification to not use the Norrin-Radd version of the...

    – Far-left Jesuit Father James Martin is hosting a Vatican Observatory webinar “to celebrate the Great American Eclipse,” a total solar eclipse expected to occur the afternoon of April 8. The webinar will take place at noon. April 8 will be significant to Catholics for at least two reasons in 2024: the feast of the Annunciation was moved to April 8 this year because March 25 fell during Holy Week, and April 8 is when the Vatican’s highly anticipated document on human dignity will be released. The document will come from the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith, formerly...

    Liberals hate, hate, HATE The Parental Rights in Education Act (Florida HB 1557) that was passed by the Florida legislature and enacted by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in 2022. Ever since the law came into force the left has been screaming about it, doing things like rebranding it as the 'Don't Say Gay' bill in the public consciousness and generally being really angry about a bill that has as its primary goal to: prohibit public schools from having 'classroom discussion' or giving 'classroom instruction' about sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten through third grade. Seriously, they're really mad about...

    A teen mob attacked a gay couple as they walked together in Queens last week – repeatedly punching one of them after hurling slurs at the pair, authorities said. The male victims, both 36, were strolling on Broadway near 33rd Street in Astoria around 7:30 p.m. when four young-looking bullies shouted an anti-gay slur then pelted the couple with unspecified“hard objects,” authorities said. Then, a member of the violent group pummeled one of the victims in the face, causing swelling and bruising, cops said. The NYPD released surveillance of three of the attackers – who are all believed to be...

    It started out with a joke between them, as they were looking at wedding venues: “Can you imagine a wedding a Mar-a-Lago?” The National Log Cabin Republicans, a pro-gay rights group, had hosted two galas at Mar-a-Lago before, once in 2020 and again in 2022, so they decided to see if it a wedding there would be “in the realm of possibility.” The couple, John Sullivan and Dan Medora, reached out to good friends Bill White and Bryan Eure, who then reached out to former President Donald Trump and ran it by him. The next day, they got a call...

Upon further review, the Emerald found that in 1984 at age 19, Barr was involved in a self-described hate crime — referred to as “gay bashing” by the prosecution. Barr and three other men were charged of the...

In the post, Penner claimed that her son, who is currently in grade 10, had been provided with a “gay porn graphic flip book at school as a method of learning how to use condoms and in addition,...

    A Pennsylvania man decapitated his 68 year-old federal government employee dad - then held up the victim's head for a YouTube video blasting the Biden administration. Justin Mohn, 32, beheaded his father Michael at their $390,000 home in Middleton Township, Pennsylvania then displayed the head during a rant blaming the federal government for 'woke mobs' and migrants he claims are destroying the United States. The appalling 14 minute clip - which remained on YouTube for six hours after it was posted - sees Mohn hold up his father's head in a bloodied plastic bag. He says: 'This is the head...

    Harvard University’s chief diversity and inclusion officer has been hit with dozens of plagiarism allegations tied to her academic work — including one claim she failed to properly cite her own husband’s study. The Ivy League school was handed an anonymous complaint on Monday listing at least 40 examples of alleged plagiarism by Sherri Ann Charleston dating back to 2009 — a decade before she joined Harvard, the Washington Free Beacon reported. The allegations, which include failing to properly cite other scholars’ work and not referencing them in footnotes, come just weeks after Harvard University president Claudine Gay resigned from...

    CV NEWS FEED // An enormously popular video game whose user base includes children has been revealed to contain widespread and overt LGBTQ content. VICE magazine co-founder Gavin McInnes took to X (formerly Twitter) Thursday to post images his young son encountered while playing the online survival game Fortnite. “My ten-year-old boy is playing [Fortnite] when this option appears,” McInnes wrote. “Rewards include going from straight to pansexual. WTF!?” McInnes showed four pictures of what appeared during his son’s gameplay. One screen advertised an “LGBT Box PVP.” On it were several flags representing certain so-called “identities” under the LGBTQ umbrella,...

    Now that the Claudine Gay story has died down in the news cycle, let's look at how much bigger this story can end up being. Where most of the pixels spilled over this story ended with the pushback that got gay "fired" to only getting paid $900K per year, that turned out to be only the beginning. Billionaire Bill Ackman decided to stop donating to his alma mater, and led the charge to have Gay removed. But then The Empire Struck Back, via a Business Insider hit piece that tried to smear his wife with with plagiarism charges. One might...

    Gabriel Attal is the new Prime Minister of France, who at 34 years old is the youngest and the first openly gay Prime Minister in the Republic, as President Macron attempts to breathe fresh life into his trouble-stricken government.

Gabriel Attal, who is in a civil union with the leader of Emmanuel Macron’s governing Renaissance party, the MEP Stéphane Séjourné, had been education minister for just six months...

    For a long time, people (including me) have been calling for major changes in higher education. Now someone is doing something about it. Hedge-fund tycoon Bill Ackman is waging war to make universities accountable. Ackman started his campaign by demanding the resignations of University of Pennsylvania President Liz Magill, Harvard President Claudine Gay and Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Sally Kornbluth after the trio’s shambolic performance before Congress on antisemitic harassment on their campuses. Magill and Gay are now gone, and Kornbluth is worried. Penn’s board of trustees pushed Magill out pretty quickly. Gay, being a diversity hire, was harder...

    Plagiarism and Collaboration The College recognizes that the open exchange of ideas plays a vital role in the academic endeavor, as often it is only through discussion with others that one is fully able to process information or to crystallize an elusive concept. Therefore, students generally are encouraged to engage in conversations with their teachers and classmates about their courses, their research, and even their assignments. These kinds of discussions and debates in some ways represent the essence of life in an academic community. And yet, it is important for all scholars to acknowledge clearly when they have relied upon...
