    This past Monday, the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the 303 Creative v. Elenis religious liberty case.This case involves basic and fundamental First Amendment religious freedom and free speech issues. The basic facts of the case are simple, but profound.

    Presumed incoming prime-minister Benjamin Netanyahu says in an interview with a US television network that he will not allow any harm to come to LGBT rights in Israel. "I just won't accept any of that. It's not something I'm saying now--I have a record now and a record in general of having two hands on the wheel," Netanyahu says during the NBC show "Meet The Press," noting that "I ultimately decide policy." "I'm going to safeguard Israeli democracy, I'm going to bring peace, categorically...and I'm going to stop Iran. That's what I'm coming back for...

    The Topeka Capital-Journal ^ | May 16, 2022 | Jason Tidd
    A federal judge is blocking a Kansas public school's policy preventing teachers from outing transgender students to their parents after the teacher raised religious objections. Fort Riley Middle School math teacher Pamela Ricard sued USD 475 Geary County Schools over LGBTQ anti-discrimination policies that conflicted with her Christian beliefs. District Judge Holly Teeter issued a preliminary injunction on Monday blocking the school from disciplining Ricard if she reveals preferred names and pronouns of her transgender students when communicating with their parents. "The Court relies on Plaintiff’s statements that she does not intend to communicate with a parent for the sole...

    A new report argues a yearslong abuse scandal from a prominent former director at Branson-area Kanakuk Kamps was more widespread and systemic than reported before. The report, published Sunday on The Dispatch, includes new documents, interviews and analysis about the years Peter Newman rose from the ranks of counselor to camp director and how he abused young boys along the way. Newman pleaded guilty to seven counts of sexually abusing boys in 2010 and received a sentence that would put him in prison for the rest of his life, but that was just "the tip of a terrible iceberg," the...
  • EQUALITY ACT IS ANTI-CHRISTIAN “Most Comprehensive Attack on Christianity Ever Written Into Law”

    02/23/2021 3:59:56 PM PST · by NKP_Vet · 24 replies
    Catholic League president Bill Donohue explains why the Equality Act is flawed: According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Equality Act is “about ending discrimination”; President Joe Biden agrees. That may be its intent, but its effect is to promote the most comprehensive assault on Christianity ever written into law. This explains why the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has been fighting this proposed law for years. Most recently it said the Equality Act “would discriminate against people of faith.” The Catholic League and many other civil rights and religious organizations have also sounded the alarm. The Equality Act...

    For the last decade or so, those warning of civilizational collapse have been accused of being alarmist. I recently reviewed Rod Dreher's latest book, Live Not By Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents, and noted that many still believe that a "silent majority" of Americans are opposed to the radicalism of the Left--that eventually, progressives will "go too far" and that the pendulum will back. I've heard that case made by people far more educated and intelligent than myself, and I hope they're right. But I'd like to share a few reasons that I think it far more likely that...

    Julea Ward was a master’s student in the counseling program at East­ern Michigan University, a few credits shy of graduating with a 3.9 GPA. One of her final tasks was to counsel real clients under faculty supervision.She counseled her first two clients without incident. But as she re­viewed the file before meeting her third client, she learned he was a gay man seeking counseling for a same-sex relationship. Ward was happy to counsel gay clients about a wide variety of life issues, but her religious be­liefs wouldn’t allow her to affirm a same-sex relationship. So she asked her faculty supervisor...

    Young people are often assumed to be progressive, especially when it comes to gay rights. But a new study reveals that acceptance of the LGBTQ community by adults 18 to 34 is falling.A new Harris Poll commissioned by GLAAD found that 36 percent of respondents in that demographic reported they'd be "very" or "somewhat" uncomfortable learning a family member was LGBTQ. That's up from 29 percent who said the same in 2018.According to the 2019 Accelerating Acceptance Index, 39 percent would be unsettled by their child learning about LGBTQ history in school, compared to just 30 percent in 2018. And finding...

    The Federalist ^ | 2/20/2018 | Jennifer Bilek
    Exceedingly rich, white men (and women) who invest in biomedical companies are funding myriad transgender organizations whose agenda will make them gobs of money. As an environmental activist who was deplatformed from a speaking venue by transactivists, in 2013 I developed curiosity about the power of this group to force this development. A year later, when Time magazine announced a transgender tipping point on its cover, I had already begun to examine the money behind the transgender project. I have watched as all-women’s safe spaces, universities, and sports opened their doors to any man who chose to identify as a...

    Don’t let the left and the Talking Snake Media lie to you. They lie to us all by the words they hope will drive and dominate the narrative. One of those words is “equality.” They have deceived more people by this one word than perhaps by any other. After all, who could be against equality? If they can create a linguistic narrative driven by the notion of “equality,” then if we oppose it they tag us as people who are against fairness and equal rights for all and as people who are nothing more than blackguards and bigots. But the...

    Terry Bean, a Portland power player in national Democratic politics and the gay rights movement, was arrested today on charges of sex abuse in a case involving a 15-year-old boy. Law enforcement sources familiar with the case say Bean will be charged with two counts of sodomy in the third degree, a felony, and sex abuse in the third degree, a misdemeanor. The arrest comes after a six-month investigation that began with allegations Bean secretly made video recordings of men having sex in his bedroom. As WW reported in June, Bean accused a former lover, Kiah Lawson, of attempting to...

    Following their success with the normalization of lesbians and gays, the enforcers of peaceful non-judgmental coexistence decided to expand the franchise. When the L and G became LGBTQIA - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual, Queer, Intersex AND Asexual - is when we all began obsessing over bathrooms.  “Where does it all end?” you might ask. In a normal world that would be a rhetorical question but in Progressive World, where nobody has ever heard of following an idea to its logical conclusion, it’s anything but; consider this claim that we saw yesterday:That’s right; if people can have gender identification issues it...
