  • Baker faces complaint for refusing anti-gay message on cake

    A dispute over a cake in Colorado raises a new question about gay rights and religious freedom: If bakers can be fined for refusing to serve married gay couples, can they also be punished for declining to make a cake with anti-gay statements? A baker in suburban Denver who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding is fighting a legal order requiring him to serve gay couples even though he argued that would violate his religious beliefs. But now a separate case puts a twist in the debate over discrimination in public businesses, and it underscores the tensions...

    Conservative backers of Arizona bill SB 1062 had two choices following Gov. Jan Brewer’s veto of the right-to-discriminate bill. They could defend the bill on its merits. Or, they could distort the contents of the bill and attack anyone who disagreed with them as a legal Luddite and hysteric. Sadly, they chose the latter. Conservatives fanned out to claim that the bill was a big nothingburger. Anyone who was upset about it was exaggerating its potential impact. It’s already legal to discriminate against gays in Arizona, so they don’t even need the law, they claimed. Wait. If there is no...

    As Russian troops roll into Ukraine, President Obama’s feckless and absentee leadership on the global stage is an American embarrassment and as President, his actions increasingly endanger the safety and security of all Americans. Obama is changing the course of American history as he abandons our international friends, yields and compromises with our adversaries, abrogates our foreign responsibilities, slashes our military, unilaterally retreats while engaged in war, and surrenders to Russia the premier dominance of global influence. Like Neville Chamberlin, the pre-WWII English Prime Minister, Obama’s appeasement efforts typifies Chamberlin’s as world tensions escalate and simmer. Obama’s misguided foreign affairs...

    Even as the Obama administration denounced what it called anti-gay legislation in Arizona and the president sat out the Sochi Olympics because of Russia’s crackdown on same-sex couples, the State Department allowed an Islamic preacher who called for the death penalty for homosexuals into the country for a tour of hate. Sheikh Mohammad Rateb al-Nabulsi was issued a visa for a 17-city tour of US mosques to raise money and support for the Syrian uprising. He arrived New Year’s Day. The radical Syrian cleric has made no secret of his virulent anti-gay views. Appearing April 28, 2011, on al Aqsa...

    President Barack Obama warned Sunday that a harsh new anti-gay law in Uganda would “complicate our valued relationship” with the east African country, which receives hundreds of millions of dollars a year in U.S. aid. In a last-ditch effort to derail the measure, national security advisor Susan Rice called Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni over the weekend and urged him not to sign the measure. The law includes a provision of life in prison for “aggravated homosexuality.”

    Arrests have spread across Nigeria as dozens more people perceived to be gay have been rounded up and questioned, activists said Friday, describing another ast few days, more than 30 people have been arrested, with an increasing number coming from the west African country's Christian southern states. Until Goodluck Jonathan signed the law more than a week ago, prosecution of gay people had largely been centered on the predominantly Muslim north, where gays have long been punished under Shariah law. "The arrests are all over. It's no longer just in the north," said Ifeanyi Kelly Orazulike, executive director of the...

    Being gay is “about the worst thing you can be in black culture,” said Don Lemon, a gay, black news anchor at CNN. Sometimes you see can see the antipathy in hip hop videos. Other times at the ballot box. Still other times black hostility towards gay people is expressed in the dozens and dozens of hyper-violent episodes of black mob violence against gay people. Some on video. These crimes are a perfect storm of silence: Predators do not want to get caught. Victims do not want to identify themselves as gay. And newspapers loathe reporting black mob violence. Two...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday said he opposed boycotting the Sochi Olympic Games despite new Russian anti-gay laws, instead urging nations to wave rainbow flags during the opening ceremonies to show support for gay rights. “That'd be pretty embarrassing for [Russian President Vladimir] Putin,” Schumer said on MSNBC's “Morning Joe.” “Let our athletes participate but still make a stand.” In June, Putin signed a law banning gay “propaganda” and imposing fines on those holding gay pride rallies. The law has generated an international backlash ahead of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has called...

Everybody's been under the impression that Zimmerman was a racist, and that's why he went after Trayvon. I went to great lengths yesterday, folks, to break this down and tell you what I think this was really all about. I'm not gonna repeat that but it is at RushLimbaugh.com.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Democratic Party is disavowing the winner of the party's nomination to challenge Republican Sen. Bob Corker in November, saying the little-known candidate belongs to an anti-gay hate group. The winner of the seven-candidate Democratic primary, 35-year-old Mark Clayton, reported raising no money and campaigned little but received more than 48,000 votes. . . .

    Desperate to distract the public from the presidential election season, Democrat politicians grasped at a peculiar straw – an interview in an obscure publication in which the head of a fast food chain acknowledged his support of existing law – to brand that entire fast food chain as being a crowd of bigots deserving of economic destruction. So the Left called for a boycott. It failed, of course; all they succeeded in doing was to remind the majority of what a terrific company Chick-Fil-A is. All over the country, the chain enjoyed record lines all day, with cars frequently backed...

    Public Advocate of the United States, a non-profit “conservative advocacy group” run by Loudoun County Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio, has been added to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) hate map as an anti-gay organization. SPLC listed Public Advocate as an “active hate group” in 2011 based on research compiled through hate group publications and websites, citizen and law enforcement reports, field sources and news reports. According to the SPLC, an internationally recognized civil rights non-profit, “all hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.” Delgaudio (R-Sterling) founded Public...

    NEW YORK — New York City police say a 49-year-old gay man leaving a corner deli near his home was beaten by two men in an apparent hate crime. Jack Price remains in a medically induced coma. He is in serious but stable condition. Police say the two suspects taunted Price and yelled anti-gay slurs while he was in the store early Friday. They attacked him outside, not far from his home in the middle-class Queens neighborhood of College Point. Twenty-six-year-old Daniel Aleman was arrested Sunday and charged with assault and aggravated assault as a hate crime. The name of...

    How safe is this? Obama’s Safe Schools Czar, Kevin Jennings, wrote in September of 1998 that killing someone who called you a name was not aberrant behavior. The clear implication is that if someone calls you a “faggot” … “that being ‘a man’ is the most important thing in life, even if you have to kill someone to prove it.” Apparently since society teaches men that to call someone gay is a crime deserving of the death penalty, parents have no influence in any of this … and the criminals bear no personal responsibility for their own actions. It is...

    This could become even bigger than the recent Van Jones situation. The momentum is starting to get that strong. Maybe the most unbelievable and outrageous Obama appointment -- of the many outrageous Obama appointments -- is Kevin Jennings to become the national "safe schools" czar -- running a multi-million dollar program without Senate confirmation. Jennings is the ultra-homosexual activist teacher who founded and ran the national group Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). As may of you know, GLSEN targets schoolchildren with homosexual propaganda. It's the group that organizes homosexual clubs in high schools and middle schools across the...

    After a huge worldwide success of "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," Sacha Baron Cohen, better known as Ali G, is releasing a new movie in July this year. The new movie is titled "Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male." In the movie, Cohen's character Bruno, a gay reporter working for "Austrian Boys Broadcasting," crashes fashion events and interviews unsuspecting guests about entertainment, fashion, celebrities, and homosexuality. One of those interviewed for the movie by Bruno in early 2008 was Ron Paul, former Republican presidential candidate and US...

    Police suspect that ultra-Orthodox Jews may have planted a bomb near Beit Shemesh to protest this year's planned gay pride parade in Jerusalem. The bomb exploded Friday, lightly wounding a laborer near the West Bank separation fence when his tractor rode over the explosive. Flyers protesting this year's parade and mentioning the one that took place last year were found near the site of the bomb, police said. An uproar over the 2006 gay pride parade in Jerusalem, which was postponed from August to November in part because of security considerations, involved ultra-Orthodox threats of violence.
