    Christians shouldn't attend same-sex wedding ceremonies, as attending would be to an inherent show of support, according to Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler Jr.In an episode of Mohler’s “The Briefing” podcast that aired Friday, the Evangelical theologian was asked by a listener about what to do if one is invited to a same-sex wedding ceremony.Mohler responded by noting that the “whole context of the wedding as a public event is the public exchange of vows and the public declaration of the rightness of this relationship.”“Remember that the traditional word used of those who are attending a wedding is...

    Former Veterans minister Johnny Mercer has called on Boris Johnson to say sorry to armed forces LGBT+ vets jailed or dismissed for their sexuality. Mr Mercer told the Sunday Mirror: “It’s the least the PM can do for the pain they have suffered. “Our armed forces are now the best in the world for LGBT inclusion but that was not always the case. “A national apology and compensation will go some way to repairing the damage done to so many lives.” Up to 20,000 LGBT armed services personnel were drummed out of careers they loved until the services gay ban...

    Twenty-six years after Israel became the first country to pass a state-supervised surrogacy law that included only married heterosexual couples, the Health Ministry has announced a change allowing same-sex couples, transexuals and single fathers to make arrangements for producing a baby with surrogate in Israel.“This is a historic day for the struggle of the LGBT community in Israel and for Israeli society as a whole. We are putting an end to years of injustice and discrimination – the surrogacy equality revolution is underway,” declared Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz, who himself is openly homosexual. He made the announcement along with ministry...

    oe Biden and Kamala Harris have no clue how to deal with the many crises their administration has created, exacerbated, or failed to get under control, but as of last Friday they now have a 42-page gender strategy. Gender strategy? Yes, the “National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality,” the first-ever such declaration because in the near-quarter millennium of this country’s existence no one ever thought we needed one, lays out a list of goals and aspirations and solutions to alleged problems whose existence keeps being asserted without evidence. “Health care,” for instance, is a strange action item to list...

    A student at Oberlin College in Ohio described being "scared" and "angry" after the school announced a work crew would be installing radiators in a "safe space" dormitory for women and trans students, explaining the crew would likely be "cisgender men." "I was angry, scared, and confused. Why didn’t the College complete the installation over the summer, when the building was empty? Why couldn’t they tell us precisely when the workers would be there? Why were they only notifying us the day before the installation was due to begin?" Oberlin student Peter Fray-Witzer wrote in an op-ed published in the...

    North Carolina’s lieutenant governor is facing mounting calls for his resignation after he was caught on video calling transgender people “filth.” The video, which was first posted Wednesday by Right Wing Watch, showed the first-term Republican making the comments during a speech at Asbury Baptist Church in June. “There’s no reason anybody, anywhere in America should be telling children about transgenderism, homosexuality, any of that filth,” Mark Robinson said in the video, which has gone viral. “Yes, I called it filth.” The comments were condemned by the White House this week. “These words are repugnant and offensive,” said Andrew Bates,...

    FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — Building relationships with the LGBTQ community and enrolling local businesses to act as shelters where bias crime victims can seek immediate help are parts of a new program rolled out Wednesday by a New Jersey prosecutor’s office.

She enlisted the help of three Jersey Shore cities to conduct the pilot program called “Safe Place,” modeled after a similar initiative in Seattle. The program...

    Police are painting rainbows on the side of their squad cars in a bid to beat online hate crimes and 'give confidence' to the LGBT+ community. Critics have said forces should be focusing on 'real' issues such as knife crime and that the colourful cars might seem less intimidating to the public. The cost of painting the cars, described as 'hate crime cars', is 'quite minimal' but are believed to give a 'huge impact' on the community. Deputy chief constable Julie Cooke said: 'Cars are there in the communities on normal policing patrol just to show the community that we...

    In her time as Pennsylvania’s top health official, Dr. Rachel Levine not only led the Commonwealth through the complexities of an opioid epidemic followed by a global viral epidemic, as a transgender woman she fended off the hateful rhetoric from detractors opposed to not only her progressive-leaning policies but her gender identity. At every turn, Levine stayed focused on the duties of her public office. Now, just a little more than 100 days in office as the U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health, Levine is leveraging the same steeliness of character in her official capacity at the national level. Levine pays...

    Nearly two years after he was arrested, Democratic Donor Ed Buck was convicted today of nine felonies which involved the overdose deaths of two men. According to the prosecution, Buck would lure black men into his home and then inject them with meth in exchange for sex. Two of the men died and a third, who testified at the trial, survived because he was able to walk to a nearby gas station to call for help: During the trial, Dane Brown testified that he had overdosed in Buck’s apartment twice in one week in September 2019. He told investigators he...

    Homosexuals do not need a cure, but accompaniment and discernmentVATICAN CITY ( - Rome is rejecting the use of "reparative" or "conversion" therapies by Catholic groups to heal homosexuals of same-sex attraction, a Spanish Catholic weekly is reporting.

The Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy (CC) instructed the Spanish Episcopal Conference (CEE) in June to disavow the Granada-based Truth and Freedom (Verdad y Libertad) apostolate for its practice of reparative therapy, Vida Nueva reported last Thursday.The bishops are...

    LOS ANGELES - In another lifetime, wealthy businessman Ed Buck hobnobbed with elite Democrats such as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Gavin Newsom. But, according to prosecutors, away from the glamour of the dinner parties and fundraisers, Buck had a dangerous dark side. It included preying on gay black men in sexual games and injecting them with fatal levels of GHB and methamphetamine. Tuesday's opening statements in Buck’s nine-count indictment recounted experiences of his drug den where two men died, and several others were injured. Although the 66-year-old businessman has said through his lawyers the activity was consensual, the U.S....
