    New HBO documentary depicts parents propagandizing their children in radical gender theory and robbing them of life in their natural bodies.A new HBO documentary, titled “Transhood,” is pushing the limits of what America understands as the transgender rights movement. Following four so-called transgender children, aged 4, 7, 12, and 15, the documentary’s description says it demonstrates “how the kids are challenged and transformed as they experience the complexity of their identities.” While through the lens of leftist LGBT advocacy this might sound empowering, from a rational point of view, it is far from a positive development.In a scene shared by...

    Trans activists keep bullying businesses into removing content through fear tactics rather than by countering the message with their own better one.It seems the battle about the rights and privileges of transgender Americans has come down to what other people are allowed to say about them. The controversy over Abigail Shrier’s book, “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters,” demonstrates how far this battle has come. Shrier’s book, which explores the phenomenon of many teenage girls suddenly and impulsively insisting they are now boys and how this affects their families and futures, has come under fire from transgender activists....

In 2006 Cardinal Re, then Prefect for the Congregation of Bishops, had asked Nuncio Sambi to convey to McCarrick that he was to lead a...

    The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in a religious freedom case on whether the city of Philadelphia acted unlawfully when it stopped placing foster children with a Catholic foster agency because it does not certify same-sex foster parents. The nation’s high court heard arguments on behalf of two Philadelphia area foster mothers who are seeking to reverse the decision by the city government, which no longer places foster children in the homes of parents who partner with Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The city objects to the fact that the organization does not provide foster certification...

    Only the left can turn down the heat in the culture war, because it is the left that has cultural power in America. Our cultural institutions, from higher education to legacy media to the entertainment industry to the tech industry, are run by people whose politics range from left-liberal to socialist. Even sports, business, and finance are increasingly left-wing, especially on cultural issues—Black Lives Matter is brought to you by Wall Street and Big Business waving a rainbow flag on ESPN.Leftists are the culture war aggressors. This is part of their self-image, in which they are fighting for liberation from...

    Pope Francis has named 13 clergymen to be appointed to the college of cardinals, nine of whom are eligible to vote in upcoming papal conclaves. This brings the number of cardinal electors appointed by Francis to 57 percent of total electors, increasing the likelihood that the next elected pope will share Francis’ vision for the Church. Jesuit Father Thomas Reese, writing for Religion News Service, noted that when the appointees “officially become cardinals, there will be 128 cardinal electors, eight more than the canonical limit.” US archbishop who is pro-LGBT Among the named cardinal electors are archbishops known for heterodox...

    Two years ago, Grace McKenzie thought team sports were no longer an option for her. As a transgender woman, McKenzie said she didn’t think she’d be allowed to play after transitioning and was “pretty sad” because she has been a lifelong athlete. McKenzie, 26, said she was surprised when a player invited her to a practice with the Golden Gate Women’s Rugby Club in San Francisco. She went and has “never looked back,” because “the entire team was extremely welcoming and inclusive.” Now her sport is has become less welcoming to elite players. On Oct. 9, World Rugby, the sport's...

    October 24, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A shocking new private poll shared by one of the country’s leading data scientists claims that 30% of American women under 25 identify as homosexual, bisexual, or transgender. Before looking into the reasons for these numbers, Eric Levitz, in a New York Magazine article about the gender gap between Trump and Biden supporters, calls attention to the continuing rise of “singledom” — a preference for non-married life — among young women in the United States: Neither the societal shift away from traditional gender roles nor the downstream cultural consequences of that shift are anywhere near...

    WASHINGTON — Brandon Straka recalls being bullied as a young gay person in the ’80s and ’90s, the homophobic slurs routinely used as taunts in his small Nebraska town. At age 22, Straka left the state for New York. He felt that it would be easier to be himself and fit in with the political leanings of the big East Coast city.

    Here’s a fascinating article from New York magazine on the massive gender gap between Trump and Biden supporters. It contains this eye-popping claim, buried deep down: Neither the societal shift away from traditional gender roles nor the downstream cultural consequences of that shift are anywhere near complete. As Rebecca Traister has incisively argued, the growing prevalence of singledom among America’s rising generation of women is one of the most potent forces in contemporary politics. In 2009, for the first time in history, there were more unmarried women in the United States than married ones. And today, young women in the...

    An American businesswoman has admitted to having a years-long affair with British leader Boris Johnson — saying they even talked about starting a new life together in New York, according to a new interview. Jennifer Arcuri, 35, was previously investigated over allegations she received money and perks while Johnson was mayor of London — but always played coy about longstanding rumors of an affair. She finally admitted it in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper, saying it “goes without saying” that they had an affair — and hinted that she is even using it as the plot for a...

    Disaster The gravity of this issue is wildly out of proportion with the small amount of attention it's receiving in the broader conversation about this election. I took a train up to New York City the April after President Trump’s inauguration to cover a “Times Talk” discussion featuring Camille Paglia and Andy Cohen. Early in the event, Paglia said the moment she predicted Trump would win the 2016 election was when the Obama administration pushed transgender bathrooms. “There’s the election, right there,” she remembered thinking. That line stuck with me. It was, Paglia added, the “worst moment to approach a...

    Most Americans were under the impression that this week's presidential debate had been canceled. Then they turned on NBC and realized they were wrong. The only change, it turns out, is that the "Today" show's Savannah Guthrie was taking on the president in what the network hilariously billed as a "townhall." Twenty minutes into Guthrie's interrogation, not one audience member had asked a question. It was a stark contrast to the Joe Biden lovefest happening on ABC, where even softball questions were changed out for Nerfs. Of course, the president predicted the "townhall" would be an ambush, even tweeting beforehand:...

    No country should allow the sale of children or the intentional creation of orphans, which, make no mistake, is exactly what is happening with surrogacy. A British man living in the United States who has recently begun a romantic relationship with his daughter’s ex-boyfriend bought a baby and is being praised by media for it. Barrie Drewitt-Barlow paid about $100,000 for his new daughter, Valentina Willow. He is most proud of the baby girl’s looks.“Every parent thinks their baby is the best-looking baby in the world, but the truth is Valentina Willow is the best-looking baby in the world,” Drewitt-Barlow...

    TORONTO, October 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A Canadian man who has struggled with unwanted same-sex attractions and transgender inclinations is pleading with the Trudeau Liberals not to criminalize therapy that helps minors deal with the same struggles he did. “The reason it took me so long to make this video was because I think I had to adjust to the shock that it would possibly be illegal for my own story to be shared,” Hudson Byblow, an internationally renowned Catholic teacher, speaker and member of Courage International,  says in a video message to Members of Parliament (MPs). “I’m a...
  • Why does Facebook discriminate against gays? Why does it put them in a special class, telling them they must remain gay even if they want to change?

    Why does Facebook treat gays unfairly? Why does it put them in a special class, telling them they must remain gay even if they want to change? Why does Facebook suppress the stories of those who have changed – and are much happier for it – rather than give them the space to choose for themselves? You might say, “Are you crazy? You have this all wrong. Facebook is standing with the gay community, protecting them from hate speech and exposing ‘conversion therapy’ as dangerous. That’s why Facebook has removed the pages of so-called ‘ex-gay’ organizations.” Of course, I’m quite...

    Each chapter of the sexual revolution has featured an updated version of the same myth: “Don’t worry, the kids will be fine.” Sex with anyone anywhere? The kids will be fine. Separate marriage from procreation? The kids will be fine. No-fault divorce? The kids will be fine. Graphic sex education in schools beginning in kindergarten? The kids will be fine. Same-sex marriages eliminating either a mom or a dad from the picture? The kids will be fine. They weren’t.Growing up in families without married parents, their well-being sacrificed for the sake of adult happiness, the kids have been the primary...
