    If you had told someone in the 1950s that, in about two generations, homosexuality would largely be normalized and faux (same-sex) marriage would be gaining widespread approval, they’d have called you crazy. Never, ever under the stars and stripes. Why, pugnacious pundit Bill O’Reilly himself opined as recently as 10 to 15 years ago that faux marriage would never be accepted in America. Ah, what a difference a decade makes in the (mis?)information age, where ideas can be transmitted worldwide at a button’s touch. I can’t tell you exactly when I knew faux marriage would gain traction — not in...

    Here are excerpts of the remarks Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to deliver this evening in Tampa, Florida: Four years ago, I know that many Americans felt a fresh excitement about the possibilities of a new president. That president was not the choice of our party but Americans always come together after elections. We are a good and generous people who are united by so much more than divides us. When that hard fought election was over, when the yard signs came down and the television commercials finally came off the air, Americans were eager to go back to...

    How exactly has Mitt Romney managed to attract a polling surge in the middle of the attacks from Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry over his Bain Capital days? According to a new Rasmussen poll, it’s because Republicans appear to be ready for a downsizing artist in the White House. And Republicans don’t appear to be alone, either: Voters are closely divided over whether Mitt Romney’s business career is a plus or a minus, but most Republicans see it as a plus. Additionally, a plurality of all voters think he would do a better job than President Obama dealing with the...

    Kobe Bryant and four of his Los Angeles Laker teammates called for understanding, compassion and acceptance in a public service announcement released today. The release of the public service announcement comes six days after Bryant was fined $100,000 by the NBA for using an obscene antigay slur aimed at a referee during a game last Tuesday. The Lakers and the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced on Friday they would work together to eliminate antigay slurs. The announcement begins with Bryant saying, "There are all kinds of different people in the world. That's what makes the world special. So...

    SNIPPET - quote: Obama's Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism speaks out against "Islamophobia" If Hannah Rosenthal really wants to end "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. She can call upon Muslims to: 1. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts. 2. Renounce definitively not just "terrorism," but any intention to replace the U.S. Constitution (or the constitutions of any non-Muslim state) with Sharia even by peaceful means. In line with this, clarify what is meant by their condemnations of the killing of innocent people by...

    The planet gets invaded once again this weekend, in the unsettling form of Keanu Reeves, as a remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" arrives in theaters. A lot has changed since the alien Klaatu first landed on Earth in the 1951 original. The human race has abused the Earth's natural resources to the brink of ecological calamity, while the world's financial markets are on the verge of collapse. We live in a time when Paula Abdul won't go away, and Sidney Poitier can't seem to make a comeback. And the trans fat has been removed from Girl Scout...

I don’t know what Barack Obama and his speechwriters were smoking but this speech is a disaster. The entire Democratic Convention had no theme and did not attack John McCain enough. This speech is boring, angry, whiny, lecturing, and full of very little specifics. I don’t know who told the Obama’s not to smile but Michelle and Barack are not smiling enough. Barack is coming off as an angry, arrogant, and pretentious candidate. Oh and he just brought out the “recruiting an army of teachers, and paying...

    February 16, 2008 More volunteer for bankruptcy as going bust loses its stigma Grainne Gilmore, Economics Correspondent There is increasing evidence that going bankrupt is losing its stigma as consumers struggle with mounting debts. Three quarters of all people who petitioned for bankruptcy last year did so voluntarily, new figures show. While overall bankruptcy petitions fell slightly last year, figures from the Ministry of Justice released yesterday showed more people initiating proceedings. Some 53,114 people petitioned in court to become bankrupt in 2007, up from 52,717 in 2006. Vince Cable, Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesman, said: “These figures are clear evidence...

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials, however, said they'll wait until acceptance testing now set for late October is done before passing judgment. The 28-mile section of fence along the U.S.-Mexico border in southern Arizona is the first of thousands of miles planned on the nation's southern and northern borders.

About 5 p.m. Saturday, officers were called to the Goodwill store on U.S. 221 in Bedford County because a male customer in the store had reportedly fondled two 8-year-old girls. The victims are friends who were visiting the store with relatives. Santos Guzman, 41, was apprehended in the parking lot.

He gave interviews about his new film, "War of the Worlds," as long as he was permitted to talk about his religion. But Scientology not only has a base in Hollywood, it has enjoyed powerful friends in Washington. For years, Scientology fought a battle with the IRS because the government would not recognize its claim to be a religion. The IRS finally granted Scientology its desired status under President Bill Clinton, the recipient of massive donations from Hollywood. Now...

    In our nation's cultural dialogue we frequently hear the words "tolerance" and "acceptance." They are often used as if they mean the same thing, when in fact they are quite different. Tolerance is when you disagree with others on a particular issue but respect their right to have their opinion and to live according to their beliefs. You may feel uncomfortable about their beliefs, but you can live together in a pluralistic society. Acceptance, on the other hand, is when you agree with others and share their position on an issue. While both tolerance and acceptance are good, they are...

We have now entered the fourth stage, where homosexuals are silencing opposing views everywhere. In the Introduction to their book, The Homosexual Agenda, Mr. Sears and Mr. Osten ask the question, “How far down the road have homosexual activists taken us toward their goal of unbridled sexual behavior and silencing of the church?” (p. 14) They then describe the four stages which lead to the moral demise of a culture, stating that the homosexuals, after quickly passing...

    CHICAGO (AP) Americans are not just getting fatter, they are ballooning to extremely obese proportions at an alarming rate. The number of extremely obese American adults - those who are at least 100 pounds overweight - has quadrupled since the 1980s to about 4 million. That works out to about 1 in every 50 adults. Extreme obesity once was thought to be a rare, distinct condition whose prevalence remained relatively steady over time. The new study contradicts that thinking and suggests that it is at least partly due to the same kinds of behavior - overeating and under-activity - that...

On September 17, Canada's House of Commons passed a bill that adds sexual orientation as a protected category in Canada's genocide and hate-crimes legislation. According to many religious believers and free-speech advocates, the bill will criminalize public expression, including Sunday sermons, against homosexual behavior. Those convicted of violating the new law face up to five years in prison. Now, if America were the independent country...

I myself have left my life-long church, the Methodists, because of several doctrinal and political disagreements. I have noticed that the gays are not lobbying in the Southern Baptists, nor in the Church of Christ, nor in the Assemblies of God. Now, one would on its surface think that it is because those churches are less susceptible to the message of "inclusiveness." That may be true, but there...
