    In early December, Netflix dropped its highly anticipated musical comedy “The Prom,” starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells and James Corden asfading Broadway stars who set out to help a lesbian teen take her girlfriend to the prom. The film, helmed by out director Ryan Murphy, got mixed reviews, but some lambasted it as “homophobic” and “offensive” because of the casting of Corden, a straight actor, in what they saw as an “aggressively flamboyant” caricature of a gay man. Erik Anderson, who runs the film site Awards Watch, called “The Prom” a “gorgeous and vibrant production” but tweeted that...

    When I saw news articles come out that the BBC was going to produce a new version of "War of the Worlds" that takes place during the Edwardian period I was quite excited. To get technical, HG Wells' book was published as a serial in 1898 when Queen Victoria was still alive. As a cherry on top the gorgeous Eleanor Tomlinson was cast as the main female lead. I was so excited to see Miss Tomlinson in Edwardian finery. Well I caught the mini-series via someone a pirated copy on YouTube and what a bitter disappointment it was. The story...

    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...
  • Men in lipstick: RITZ Crackers redefines family as two men

    One man putting on lipstick like a woman and effeminately clinging to another man. RITZ Crackers is attempting to normalize the transgender lifestyle by airing a commercial that has absolutely nothing to do with selling crackers. The company's most recent ad features a man putting on lipstick like a woman and effeminately clinging to another man, to brainwash children and adults alike by desensitizing audiences. The ad campaign titled "Where's there's love, there's family" has been airing on HGTV and is featured on RITZ's YouTube page. The company's goal is to redefine family as something other than God's biblical design...

    NEW YORK, November 27 (C-Fam) The European Commission intends to unleash a barrage of policies to impose LGBT uniformity across the European Union, including through the threat of sanctions. The powerful European Commission announced that it wants to make “hate speech” and “hate crimes” EU crimes by 2021 and to impose mutual recognition of “rainbow families” across the European Union by 2022. The EU Commission made the announcement in its first-ever EU-wide strategy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) equality on November 12. Alongside the pledge to legislate “hate crimes” and “rainbow families” the strategy sets...
  • Liberal Media Slobbers Over Nasdaq’s WOKE Board Diversity Rule

    The woke “capitalists” at the Nasdaq stock exchange are pushing to force its listed companies to adopt leftist identity politics. And the liberal media is salivating all over it. Nasdaq recently filed a proposal with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) pushing for mandatory racial and sexual diversity rules for its listed companies’ boards of directors. The new rules, if adopted, “would require all companies listed on Nasdaq’s U.S. exchange to publicly disclose consistent, transparent diversity statistics regarding their board of directors,” according to Nasdaq. Additionally, the rules would require the companies to “have, or explain why they do...

    Prominent stock exchange plans to require “token” women, minorities, and LGBTQ people in listed companies’ leadership. When I walk into my local supermarket, I see products from big companies like Kellogg’s and Campbell’s, from smaller companies like Dave’s Killer Bread and Edward & Sons, and occasionally from local companies just getting started in the business of providing food to the world, or at least to the neighborhood. What I don’t see is Safeway or Kroger issuing edicts to those companies telling them how to run their businesses. And why would they? After all, it’s literally none of their business. Just...

    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...

    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,...
  • Dutch Police Urge an End to ‘Pedo-Hunting’ After Retired Teacher, 73, Dies in Teen Mob Attack

    At the end of October, a 73-year-old man was beaten so badly by a group of teenagers in the Dutch city of Arnhem that he later died of his injuries. Dutch police say it’s the latest and most serious example of “pedophile hunting,” which is sweeping the country. According to local police, the man, who was a retired teacher, was in an online chatroom where he agreed to meet a 15-year-old boy for sex. The man knew the boy was a minor, authorities say, but there was no evidence that he’d had past sexual contact with underage boys. The man...

    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...

    Church Militant ^ | March 12, 2019 | Chris Caldwell
    Theodore McCarrick has had longtime ties to Pope Francis stretching back decades, with both involved in a controversial seminary in Argentina. Evidence reveals McCarrick took multiple trips to Argentina, and a reliable source confirms that on at least one of those trips McCarrick personally visited Bergoglio in the apostolic nunciature. Public reports reveal that decades ago, McCarrick became heavily involved with the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE), founded in Argentina by Fr. Carlos Miguel Buela, a now known homosexual predator who, like McCarrick, sexually assaulted seminarians under his authority. The Vatican confirmed in 2016 that Buela had been credibly...

    HOW MUCH DOES AN ANTICHURCH COST? $2 Billion per year, apparently. HIV antiretroviral scrips, cocaine, rent boys and child sex slaves ain’t cheap, folks. IF the $2 Billion per year figure is accurate, it is some of the most “effective” tactical money ever deployed. Now do we fully understand why Antipope Bergoglio and the whole wretched cabal are so aggressively evil? Why they openly preach Marxism and hatred of God and His Holy Church? Why Antipope Begoglio and his cabal are all 100% on board with the fake CoronaCold crime against humanity? Remember who brokered the destruction of the Catholic...

    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 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...
