    John Weaver, a veteran Republican operative who co-founded the Lincoln Project, declared in a statement to Axios on Friday that he sent “inappropriate,” sexually charged messages to multiple men. “To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry. They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you,” Weaver said. “The truth is that I'm gay,” he added. “And that I have a wife and two kids who I love. My inability to reconcile those two truths has led...

    In a major win for the LGBTQ community, Switzerland lawmakers approved the legalization of same-sex marriage last week. At the same time, the law also allowed transgender people to alter their legal gender at civil registry offices in the country and allows lesbian couples to conceive children using donated sperm, Reuters reports. Despite passing parliament, the same-sex marriage law may have to pass a national referendum in the coming year. However, activists expect a potential referendum to succeed, after a recent survey found support for marriage exceeding 80% in Switzerland. Campaign group Marriage For All posted a statement on their...

  • Looking for statistics on African-Americans attitudes towards homosexuality.

    So I'm having another one of those debates on homosexuality, this time the issue is the views of African-Americans towards homosexuality. I remember reading some years ago that statically African-Americans hold a more negative view of homosexuality than do whites, a point I decided to raise once the other guy decided to compare the lack of gay "marriage" to slavery or Jim Crow. He pointed out that gallup had stated otherwise, that close to 70% voted to maintain same-sex "marriage" in Nevada recently. I can't remember where I read the original study but I'm just wondering if it is still...

    Biden is making sweeping promises to LGBTQ activists, proposing to carry out virtually every major proposal on their wish lists. Among them: Lifting the Trump administration’s near-total ban on military service for transgender people, barring federal contractors from anti-LGBTQ job discrimination, and creating high-level LGBTQ-rights positions at the State Department, the National Security Council and other federal agencies. Biden says his top legislative priority for LGBTQ issues is the Equality Act, passed by the House of Representatives last year but stalled in the Senate. It would extend to all 50 states the comprehensive anti-bias protections already afforded to LGBTQ people...
  • Anglican Primate Linda Nicholls Urges Government of Canada to Ban Conversion Therapy

    Virtue Online ^ | 11/20/20 | David Virtue
    The Anglican Church of Canada's Primate, Linda Nicholls has written to Canada's Minister of Justice to voice her support for Bill C-6, a bill which would criminalize conversion therapy. If this should pass, a therapist, psychotherapist, counsellor or psychiatrist who agrees to help someone resist unwanted same-sex attraction would be committing a criminal act and face fines and possible jail time. At a deeper level it is a fundamental denial of free speech. So, a person who experiences same-sex attraction has no choice but to accept his or her unwanted attractions. Let me repeat: no choice. The reason for this,...
  • Liberal Norway Has Made it a Crime Punishable with Prison Time to Criticize the LGBTQ+P for Pedophile Movement Even in your Private Conversations

    Norway’s parliament has voted to expand the protections that the LGBTQ+ community has enjoyed in that nation since 1981 by expanding the definition of “hate speech” that can land a person in prison. As you can see, the horrific, dystopian future that George Orwell warned us about is now here, and getting worse with each passing day. Jail time for criticism? Sure, Antichrist brooks no dissent. What’s next, execution? Exactly. The Liberals in the LGBTQ+ lied to you when they said they only want “tolerance and acceptance”, they want nothing of the kind. They want to you rule your life,...

    Constitutional amendment proposed to enshrine defence of so-called ‘Christian values’ Moments before Hungary entered a second coronavirus lockdown on Wednesday, the far-right government signalled its intention to pass a range of new legislation, including to make it harder for opposition political parties to join forces and to change the constitution to enshrine the defence of so-called “Christian values”. Opposition politicians criticised both the substance and timing of the moves. The proposed constitutional amendment, submitted to parliament by the justice minister, Judit Varga, late on Tuesday, is the latest assault on LGBT rights in the country, where legal recognition for gender...

    Proposals follow creation of ‘LGBT-free zones’ in Poland and Hungary’s proposed ban on adoption Brussels has put itself on a collision course with the Polish and Hungarian governments after proposing to criminalise hate speech against LGBTQ+ people under EU law and secure recognition of same-sex partnerships across the bloc’s borders. Věra Jourová, a European commissioner, said the measures followed new “worrying trends”, with the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights reporting that 43% of LGBT people had declared feeling discriminated against in 2019, compared with 37% in 2012. The proposals were announced as part of the commission’s first ever strategy to...

    Norway's parliament outlawed hate speech against transgender and bisexual people on Tuesday, expanding its penal code which has protected gay and lesbian people since 1981. People found guilty of hate speech face a fine or up to a year in jail for private remarks, and maximum of three years in jail for public comments, according to the penal code. "I'm very relieved actually, because (the lack of legal protection) has been an eyesore for trans people for many, many years," said Birna Rorslett, vice president of the Association of Transgender People in Norway. Norway is one of the most liberal...

    Homosexuals in Ireland believe that Pope Francis should initiate church blessings for same-sex couples. On October 21, 2020, We Are Church Ireland, a Catholic reform group that supports LGBT values, announced that the pope, who spoke out in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage, should initiate a church blessing for these marriages, according to Novenanews.com. We Are Church Ireland said in a press release that the organization "warmly welcomes the excellent news that Pope Francis is supporting civil unions for couples of the same sex." According to representatives of the organization, this is "a very important step for Pope Francis and...

    Things have gotten “so unusual” when it comes to one of Cyndi Lauper’s biggest hits. The pop music legend is peeved that one of her most heartfelt songs is being peddled by an ardent supporter of President Trump, whose mission is to encourage disenfranchised groups to support the caustic commander-in-chief. “As a gay man in America, I spent most of my life believing that Republicans hated me,” #WalkAway campaign founder Brandon Straka said with the release of his audacious cover of the Lauper staple “True Colors.” “In the past few years, I’ve received more love, support, and respect from Republicans,...

    ROME — In a documentary that premiered Wednesday in Rome, Pope Francis called for the passage of civil union laws for same-sex couples, departing from the position of the Vatican’s doctrinal office and the pope’s predecessors on the issue. The remarks came amid a portion of the documentary that reflected on pastoral care for those who identify as LGBT. “Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it,” Pope Francis said in the film, of...
  • So-called 'Virginia Values Act' undermines religious freedom; Requires Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.

    Christian Post ^ | 10/17/2020 | John Stonestreet and Roberto Rivera
    On July 1, the state of Virginia enacted the “Virginia Values Act,” which bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. A companion law requires employers to include coverage for sex reassignment and “gender affirming” surgeries in their health plans. According to the Alliance Defending Freedom, who has filed a pre-enforcement challenge, the Virginia Values Act requires “churches, religious schools, and Christian ministries to hire employees who do not share their stated beliefs on marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.”Though the Act provides an exemption for religious schools “owned, supported, controlled, or managed” by denominations or churches, that...

    The NFL is set to celebrate the LGBTQ community’s “National Coming Out Day” during its Sunday Night Football broadcast this weekend. The campaign, labeled “It Takes All Of Us,” will feature a 30-second video starring openly gay or bisexual NFL players including Ryan O’Callaghan, Jeff Rohrer, R.K. Russell, and Wade Davis. The ad encourages gays to come out and be proud of their sexual proclivities, according to CNN. The video starts with the aforementioned players saying, “To all current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we.” The ad then segues to other players...

    A homophobic pastor is threatening to sue a public high school in Tennessee after his daughter was sent home for wearing an anti-gay t-shirt. Rich Penkoski, leader of extremist anti-LGBTQ hate group “Warriors for Christ,” told the Christian Post that his daughter’s First Amendment rights were violated after she was told to leave Livingston Academy in Livingston, Tenn. His daughter Brielle, who is 15, wore a t-shirt with “homosexuality is a sin” written on the front, as well as “1 Corinthians 6:9-10,” (snip) “My 15 year old was thrown out of school for the day for wearing this shirt,”...

    The U.S. Navy SEALs and the Navy Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) recently changed their ethos and creed statements to reflect a gender-neutral presentation of the elite Navy outfits, doing away with gendered terms like “brotherhood.” One change to the SEAL ethos was to alter a sentence in the first paragraph of the ethos to say, “Common citizens with uncommon desire to succeed” instead of the original, “A common man with uncommon desire to succeed.” Naval Special Warfare spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Stroup confirmed the changes to the ethos and creed statements in an emailed statement to American Military News....

    Anyone walking past the headquarters of the European Commission in Brussels earlier this week would have seen a dazzling light display above their heads, in all colors of the rainbow. “More than 330,000 people say: EU — Turn your words into action. Stop ‘LGBT-free zones’ in Poland now” the projected message proclaimed, in letters several meters high. The display was organized by LGBT+ rights advocacy group AllOut in collaboration with the Polish Campaign Against Homophobia. The group handed over a petition with over 330,000 signatures to the European Union demanding the bloc take urgent action over homophobic and transphobic policies...

    From the moment he stepped into the White House, President Donald Trump’s record on LGBTQ rights has continued to get worse and worse. It has now been over 3 years, and despite administration officials’ claims that he is a “pro-LGBTQ” president, the attacks from the White House are still coming. From erasing any mentions of LGBTQ rights from federal websites minutes after his inauguration to supporting a school’s right to fire a gay teacher, Trump’s LGBTQ rights record couldn’t be more heinous. ...
