    The homosexual movement’s state-by-state crusade to pass laws banning youth with sexual orientation problems from seeking help by therapists, came to a head in the Massachusetts State House at a public hearing on Tuesday, July 28. The well-oiled LGBT lobbying machine was rebutted by pro-family counselors and experts, many of whom who came to Boston from across America, as well as MassResistance activists. At issue is Bill H97, which is a major goal of the LGBT lobby this year. It would make it illegal for licensed therapists to help children deal with traumatic sexual orientation problems, often the result of...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich collected another endorsement from a prominent Southern Republican on Tuesday. Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott pledged his support to the governor, and will serve as a national co-chair on Kasich's campaign. Lott, 73, spent 35 years in Congress from Mississippi's delegation, and rose through the ranks of GOP leadership in the Senate to secure the top spot. His colleagues ousted him from that position after he made comments praising former South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond, who ran as a "Dixiecrat" for president in 1948. Thurmond's states' rights platform challenged the civil rights movement of the...
  • Ten Ways the Iran Deal is Worse Than Munich

    It's 220 miles and 77 years from Munich – which epitomized the appeasement that led to World War II – to Vienna, where Obama's nuclear capitulation to Iran was negotiated. Whenever a grounded-in-reality person (non-Democrat) compares the Iran surrender to peace-for-our-time, liberals get unhinged. In a way, they're right. Vienna is worse than Munich. Hyperventilating in the pathetically predictable Christian Science Monitor, on July 26, staff writer Dan Murphy insisted, "The comparison being tossed around (Iran and Munich) is full of false equivalences, a misunderstanding of European history, and perhaps a deliberate distortion of the Iran deal." Murphy argues that...

    Terry Bean, the real estate investor and gay-rights pioneer who faces sex-crimes charges in Lane County, has been under the microscope for the past year since WW reported on his troubled personal life. As WW has reported, Bean unsuccessfully sought to avoid trial on Lane County charges with a cash offer to his alleged victim, a 17-year-old boy who now is on the run from a subpoena. On Friday, The Oregonian reported that the lawyer for a former boyfriend of Bean, Kiah Lawson, filed documents in a Washington County case attempting to tie Bean to another allegation of sexual abuse...

    Bravo has cast transgender model Amiyah Scott in “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for its upcoming eighth season, Variety has learned. The casting marks the first-ever transgender woman to be featured in the “Real Housewives” franchise, though the capacity in which Scott will appear is undetermined, as discussions have just begun. Scott on “RHOA” will join many transgender figures on reality television, following “Big Brother” casting its first-ever trans contestant this summer; ABC Family’s “Becoming Us” from exec producer Ryan Seacrest, which documents a teenage boy’s life after his father transitions; TLC’s summer series “I Am Jazz,” which follows 14-year-old...

    On Sunday, a 72 year old woman entered the north vestibule of St. Cecilia’s Cathedral on 40th and Burt Street. As she stood at the welcome table reading a copy of the parish newsletter, two black men, approximately 16 years of age, entered behind her. One grabbed her purse from her arm and ran out the door. The second, for no explainable reason, hit the woman squarely on the side of her face, knocking her down . The incident has sparked outrage. Police are now looking for the men responsible for attacking the 72-year-old woman. WOWT 6 News heard from...

    A historic Baptist church in South Carolina that gave rise to the first president of the Southern Baptist Convention has adopted a new non-discrimination policy that will allow its leadership to perform same-sex “marriage” ceremonies and also ordain open homosexuals. First Baptist Church of Greenville, South Carolina, was founded in 1831. Though the church’s organizer, William Bullein Johnson, became the first president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the church parted ways with the Southern Baptist Convention in 1999. Late last year, members of the congregation gathered in small groups to discuss the church’s position on homosexuality. Eventually, the members concluded...

    A New York Yankees minor-league affiliate says it was surprised by the controversy surrounding a “Blue Lives Matter Day” held at its ballpark Sunday. Social-justice activists and left-leaning websites criticized the timing of the event, which took place on the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Mo., but team officials insist it was simply a coincidence. Blue Lives Matter NYC, a charity for the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, hosted the fundraising event during a baseball game between the Staten Island Yankees and the Brooklyn Cyclones at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark.

    At the Republican presidential debate, moderator and FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly tried to ambush Donald Trump. After reminding The Donald that he had "called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals," Kelly asked the candidate a rhetorical question that was supposed to eviscerate him, "How will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who is likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?" For the record, when it comes to insults, Trump is equal opportunity all the way. He's made disparaging remarks about McCain's war record, called Lindsay...

Prosecutors said Elliott doused the bar in alcohol, wrote gay slurs on the wall, then lit it on fire. He was sentenced to two years' probation and has to pay back $107,000 to two insurance companies.

    Like Marxism and fascism, liberalism is a Godless creed. Despite its secular nature, it has many of the attributes of traditional religion, including a dogma, a vision of salvation and damnation and a priesthood – chief among them the mainstream media. It also has ritual incantations to cover any situation. A classic example was Hillary Clinton's response to the videos showing Planned Parenthood officials gloating over how much they could get by selling fetal body parts. On Wednesday, the former Secretary of State confessed: "I have seen the pictures from them (the undercover videos) and obviously find them disturbing," as...

If you are not of African descent please go to the outside of the circle immediately.” That according to a video circulating which shows reporter Brandon Blackwell, who is not of African descent, quickly retreat to the back of the gathering amidst cheers from activists surrounding him, seemingly in support of the banishment.

    Martin O’Malley unveiled a new criminal justice reform plan Friday, in a release timed to coordinate with his appearance at the National Urban League’s annual conference in Fort Lauderdale. O’Malley is calling for a number of initiatives that are sure to please the progressive wing of the Democratic party. Among those is legislation to require racial bias training for police, the establishment of a national use of force standard for police, an expansion of civilian review boards, and the lowering of the standard required to bring civil rights cases. In introducing the plan on Friday, O’Malley highlighted his stint as...

    The current occupant of the White House – Barack, the first of his name – is seriously unhappy with the comments of two contenders for the Republican presidential nomination, Having endured their logic for as long as he could, Obama unburdened himself in Addis Ababa on Monday. While saving some disdain for Donald Trump, POTUS was particularly incensed by the comments of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who said the president's genocide-in-the-making deal with Iran is like marching Israelis "to the ovens." Such rhetoric is "part of a general pattern that you've seen that would be considered ridiculous if it...

    This Wednesday and Thursday, July 29-30, the appeal hearing for Dr. Paul Church will take place. It will include lawyers, “evidence”, and witnesses, as his hospital attempts to seal his firing. On March 30, Dr. Church, a well-respected urologist, was expelled from the medical staff of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a major Harvard-affiliated hospital in Boston. Dr. Church’s crime? He voiced concerns to his colleagues and hospital staff about the unhealthy nature of homosexual behavior and objected to the hospital’s aggressive promotion of “gay pride” activities. As we’ve reported, for years the hospital has been aggressive in its...

    This is not a brief for Donald Trump, whose attacks on his critics are becoming increasingly bizarre. But the GOP establishment was furious with The Donald long before he mocked Sen. McCain's war record. The billionaire's sudden popularity shows just how much the conservative base despises the leadership of the Republican Party and how desperate they are for someone to shout the truth that illegal immigration is destroying America. Not long after Trump made his murderers-and-rapists remark, the RINO Empire struck back. Karl Rove – who thinks Romney was brilliant in 2016 – says Trump has the ability to "tarnish...

    We have rarely seen anything as disgraceful as this. There are just five days to go before the July 21 deadline to file for a re-hearing before the US Supreme Court on its recent 5-4 “same-sex marriage” ruling. But chances are bleak that this crucial filing will be done. The cave-in by the GOP has spread to major pro-family organizations. As we described in our report last week, the US Supreme Court "same-sex marriage” fight is not completely over. According to the Court’s published rules, within 25 days of a ruling, a party can ask the Court for a “rehearing”...

    Scientists in mainland China have successfully mass produced high-quality artificial sperm for the first time. "Our man-made sperms cells can be used to generate an army of half-cloned mice with ease and efficiency. These half-cloned mice will fight on the frontline in battles against cancer and other genetic health issues,” said professor Li Jinsong, lead scientist on the project with the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Shanghai Institute for Biological Sciences. Man-made sperm have been produced by scientists in labs around the world for years,but the quality of these sperm was a problem. For instance, only about 2 per cent of...

    In 1995, social scientists Stanley Rothman and Amy Black did a survey of the most influential editors and reporters in America, designated "The Media Elite." Their work was replicated in later studies. Among the findings: • 91% of the media elite voted for Bill Clinton in 1992 – an election in which he won only 43% of the popular vote. • 77% identified as Democrats, versus 5% who considered themselves Republicans. • A staggering 97% believed in a right to abortion, a belief strongly held by 86%. By comparison, according to a 2014 Gallup Poll, the American people are just...

    It’s not completely over yet. But a group of treacherous and cowardly Republican politicians are standing in the way. A new fight is on, and everyone’s help is needed. Prominent pro-family figures, some GOP presidential candidates, and hundreds across the country are pressing Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine to formally file for an appeal hearing on the US Supreme Court’s 5-4 “gay marriage” ruling handed down on June 26. According to the Court’s published rules, within 25 days of a ruling a party can ask the Court for a “rehearing” of a case on pertinent issues that would merit an...

    Much has been written on the unconstitutionality and irrationality of the Supreme Court’s Obergefell “same-sex marriage” opinion. Will Governors and officials around the country kowtow to the Court and allow lawless same-sex marriage in states where it was banned? Will they imitate the disgraceful Massachusetts model? Will citizens allow this to happen? The turning point for the radical effort to impose “same-sex marriage” (SSM) on the country was the 2003 Goodridge case in Massachusetts. There, the homosexual activists pioneered using the courts to circumvent the democratic lawmaking process and took advantage of an ambitious Governor to implement their dream. In...

    More than two dozen Democrats have proposed legislation that would eliminate the words "husband" and "wife" from federal law. Those "gendered terms" would be replaced by "gender-neutral" words like "spouse" or "married couple," according to the bill from Rep. Lois Capps, D-Calif. "The Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act recognizes that the words in our laws have meaning and can continue to reflect prejudice and discrimination even when rendered null by our highest courts," Capps said. "Our values as a country are reflected in our laws. I authored this bill because it is imperative that our federal code reflect...

    Carrie Jean Melvin and her boyfriend were walking through their Hollywood neighborhood on their way to get some food when someone walked up behind them, aimed a shotgun at her head and pulled the trigger. The gunman jumped into a black sedan and drove off. Melvin died at the scene. There was no initial evidence suggesting the shooting was part of a botched robbery, Det. John Skaggs said. And there was no conversation between the couple and the gunman before he opened fire. The shooting happened about 10 p.m. along McCadden Place near Sunset Boulevard, just a few blocks from...

A recent online poll of more than 2,000 adults by TransferWise, a peer-to-peer money transfer service based in the United Kingdom, revealed that 35 percent of American-born residents and emigrants would consider leaving the United States to live in another country. This percentage greatly increases for those age 18 to 34. More than half of millennials, a whopping 55 percent, said that they would consider leaving the U.S. for foreign shores.

    The first same-sex divorce in Louisiana was granted about two hours before the first legally sanctioned same-sex wedding took place. Two New Orleans women, Anna Wellman and Stephanie Baus, who married in Massachusetts in 2009, made bittersweet history by filing for divorce in Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Friday (June 26) -- something they couldn't have done before the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling last week because Louisiana law did not recognize same-sex weddings performed out of state. The divorce was made official Monday in a proceeding that lasted just minutes and concluded before 11 a.m., without the fanfare and...

In response, a coalition of at least twelve homosexual organizations has filed criminal complaints with two government agencies claiming that the cardinal’s words...

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and interim CPS CEO Jesse Ruiz will lay out a plan Wednesday to fully fund the school district's teacher pensions. The announcement came after Tuesday's 11th hour $634 million pension payment. In a statement, CPS confirmed at least part of the money was borrowed and there will be 1,400 layoffs. The district said that not all of those positions are teachers, but some of them are. The Chicago Teachers Union reacted Tuesday night to the announcement. "I can tell you it's...

Our agencies will comply with the court order,” the Republican presidential contender said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” after being asked why his state is the only one that has not yet issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Appearing from the state capital, Baton Rouge, the governor explained his state is waiting on a 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision to reverse a previous ruling upholding traditional marriage and implement the high court’s ruling.

    A report issued Thursday by the Department of State repeatedly refers to sex reassignment surgery in Iran as “gender-confirmation surgery.” Iran has a well-documented record of coercing gay and lesbian people into having the gender reassignment surgery, that is, disrupting rather than “confirming” the gender identity of hundreds per year. Since homosexuality can be punishable by death in Iran, known homosexual men tend to accept the government-subsidized surgery to become women, and vice versa. By referring to the surgeries as “gender confirmation,” rather than the much more widespread and morally neutral “sex reassignment surgery,” the State Department seems to be...

    In France, terrorists left a severed head at the site of an attack on a chemical plant. On Friday, the Supreme Court beheaded its own hostages – the Constitution and Judeo-Christian morality. A Constitutional right for two men or two women to marry lurking in the 14th Amendment is as absurd as it is for a right to abortion to exist in an imaginary penumbra of a mythical right to privacy in the 1st Amendment. It's all a game. It's as if the Court's leftist majority – including Anthony Kennedy and, occasionally, John Roberts – tack the Bill of Rights...

Pressure is building in the state to remove the statues at UT-Austin. A Change.org petition has garnered thousands of signatures, and on Tuesday, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) called on Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) and Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush to take the statues down. The school is debating whether to remove the statues.

And they have not-so-subtly let each employee know not signing up will be noted. Employees are being told “to help create an environment for open and honest dialogue.” The document notes descriptors such as “wife” and “boyfriend” are frowned upon, and “partner” is preferred. Not referring to your wife as your wife “offers up the opportunity for more inclusive conversations.” JP Morgan urges employees...

    In his new autobiography, "The Wright Brothers," David McCullough says of the pioneers of aviation, "Like their father, they were always perfect gentlemen, naturally courteous to all." Of the many adjectives one might choose to describe the youth who rioted in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, "perfect gentlemen" and "courteous to all" don't immediately come to mind. To demonstrate that "black lives matter," the Baltimore mob caused $9 million in damages (mostly to minority businesses), set 144 vehicles on fire and injured 113 police officers.

    HuffPost Gay Voices did their usual happy dance Thursday over a new Tylenol commercial that prominently featured gay and lesbian couples alongside real families and real couples. Part of their new #HowWeFamily campaign, which supposedly "aims to celebrate the diversity of modern families," the commercial features a lesbian couple posing for a prom photo and two homosexual men posing as fathers while holding a baby. "When did you first fight to be considered a family?" a voiceover asks. "When you fell in love? When you got married? When you had kids? Family isn't defined by who you love, but how."...

    As “Gay Pride Week” starts in Boston, the political establishment has a message for religious believers: You're not welcome here. For the second year in a row, prominent Boston politicians honored a virulent anti-Christian group (along with a cast of other bizarre characters) during a “ceremony” at City Hall Plaza to mark the beginning of “Gay Pride Week” in Boston by raising the homosexual rainbow flag over Boston City Hall. Last year, the politicians outraged Catholics by honoring the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” a hateful group of homosexual cross-dressers that mocks the Church. This year, they honored the Russian female...

    After a three-day manhunt, the South Jersey man charged with stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death was found dead Saturday, police said. Camden County prosecutors said Michael Eitel, 45, had hanged himself in the West Berlin home of a different ex-girlfriend, who "had been out of the home for her own safety." His body was found about 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Eitel had been charged with first-degree murder after Carol Bowne, 39, was found with multiple stab wounds in her Berlin Township driveway Wednesday night. She died later that night at a hospital. Bowne had an active restraining order against Eitel at...

    Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson's already complicated love story has now devolved into a series of competing accusations of betrayal and coercion. On Friday, less than a month after saying 'I do' and just one day after the newlywed couple announced they were expecting their first baby together, Ms Griner filed papers to have their marriage annulled. Griner released a statement saying: 'Last Wednesday, Glory and I agreed to either legally separate, get divorced, or annul our marriage. 'I can confirm that today I filed for an annulment. In the week prior to the wedding, I attempted to postpone the...

    Scene: You're a woman, sitting on a bench reading a book. Your male friend sees you on the quad and comes over to say hello and talk. You put down your book, lean back against the bench and smile. He doesn't sit next to you; instead, he puts his foot on the bench and leans over his knee. So sexist, right? That scene is depicted in a statue at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, and despite no sign of distress or physical assertion, some women have decided it is a statue of "mansplaining" — a...

    The National Institutes of Health through its National Institute of Mental Health has awarded $52,293 in taxpayer funding to the Toronto-based Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to study how to reduce discrimination of lesbian, gay and transgender people with schizophrenia by members of the community they are in frequent contact with, like the “convenience store clerk.” “Inquiry will extend from individuals with schizophrenia to include family members and service providers of participants as well as community members with whom they are in frequent contact (e.g., convenience store clerk),” the grant, titled “Defining Community for LGBT People with Schizophrenia,” stated....

    Sometimes conservatives seem to be misery junkies. It's like we get a psychic thrill from telling each other that the end of the world is at hand. Admittedly, everything isn't coming up roses. That scent in the air isn't from flowers. But there's still more cause for comfort than despair. "Let not your heart be troubled." Here are seven reasons to hope for America. 1. There's an explosion of conservative activism – According to the latest Gallup poll, 38% of Americans are self-identified conservatives, against only 24% who call themselves liberals, and 34% moderates. Even after six and a half...

    A same-sex couple from St. John's is upset after discovering the jewelry store that sold them their engagement rings has posted a sign that seems to oppose same-sex marriage — but one of the store's owners says he's allowed to post his religious beliefs. When Nicole White and Pam Renouf went looking for engagement rings a few months ago, the pair couldn't find anything they liked. The couple was eventually referred to Today's Jewellers in the Mount Pearl area because the store offers custom-made rings. White and Renouf visited the store and later gave specifications and a price range for...

    Canada’s largest union of elementary teachers is hosting an event next week aimed at training teachers on how to push homosexuality in kindergarten through grade 8 by creating Gay-Straight-Alliance (GSAs) clubs in schools. “Attend this symposium to find out what others are doing and how you might begin or continue your own school’s GSA journey,” states the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) in its brochure about the May 22-23 event. Teachers attending the event will learn about “LGBTQ community resources and how to use them” in the classroom as well as how to “raise awareness” among children from the...

    MA Congressman Joe Kennedy announced last night that he is going to lead the charge in our Commonwealth for… the Bathroom Bill. Transgender activists have apparently enlisted the young and famously-named congressman as the spokesman for their demands to get into all public bathrooms, locker rooms, and otherwise “lawfully sex-segregated facilities.” They are hoping to strong-arm the legislature into passing HB 1577, a new Bathroom Bill, which would essentially make all ‘public accommodations’ gender (and gender identity) neutral! Beyond the obvious threat to safety, modesty and privacy, in 2010, a Boston man who ‘identifies’ as a woman, was arrested for...
