    ZANESVILLE, Ohio, February 20, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says he wants to use his platform to build a worldwide “inclusive community.” However, a Christian ‘vlogger’ found out there appears to be no room in it for her as long as she quotes Bible passages about homosexuality. Elizabeth Johnston, aka the “Activist Mommy,” says there is a big disconnect between Zuckerberg’s recent call for a global “inclusive community” and Facebook’s “censorship of Christians.” “They are muzzling me and my biblical message while Mark Zuckerberg claims that FB is unbiased,” she stated in a news release. She has had...
  • Donald Trump’s Florida Rally: Gay Speaker Slams Obama on Guns, Radical Islam

    Former Orlando mayoral candidate Randy Ross lambasted President Barack Obama’s attempt to blame guns for the Orlando terror attack instead of blaming radical Islam. “While victims were in the hospital, families were grieving, funeral arrangement were being made for the victims, our city mourning, [Obama] turned the conversation into one of gun control” said Ross, a gay speaker who was speaking at Donald Trump’s Aug. 11 rally in Kissimmee, Florida. According to the Advocate, Ross said Obama’s speech wrongly switched the emphasis from the threat of radical Islam to a plea for more gun control for law-abiding citizens.

    The news that Hussein Obama is opening a new Muslim outreach office has probably come as quite a surprise to many Americans who thought he had already done that in January of 2009; an oval one. Not so, they claim. It is only just now coming into existence with a full-time religious and ideological agitator dedicated to American Islamification. Hussein Obama’s choice to follow him in the now non-stealth position is Zaki Barzinji, a former president of the Muslim Youth of North America. The new Muslim preference program is under the oversight, as one might have guessed, of Iranian Muslim...

    Carrie Prejean was on hannity attacking the nyt for running a story in their trump hit piece with her name in it. She said she was contacted by the nyt about an interview, but refused. The nyt ended up taking an excerpt from her book, and portrayed it in a negative way to make trump look bad. She said the nyt was dishonest, and said they should stop. Hannity asked her would she vote for trump, and she said she supported him and would.

    "I told them they weren't gonna get anything negative out of me about Donald Trump, and they weren't really happy about that." In case you had any doubt whatsoever, let’s just lay it out: The New York Times is not just a journalistic institution that leans left in its worldview. It’s a left-wing propaganda arm, and from the moment it sets out to write a story, it is looking not to learn the truth, but to assemble information and/or misinformation (whatever works) that appears to support the Times’s preferred narrative. But the Times seems to have missed the fact that...

    Under openly gay CEO Tim Cook, Apple has done a lot to forward gay rights. A year ago, the company stood up against homophobic legislation going through Arizona and organized a company-wide march in San Francisco’s annual gay pride parade. All in all, Apple’s one of the most gay-friendly companies you can work for. So here’s a shocker for you: When Apple figured out it had accidentally hired someone with a history of anti-gay activities, it quickly severed contact. The hire in question was Jay Love, a former politician Apple hired to lobby on its behalf to the Alabama state...

    The Miss USA pageant will be held tomorrow. I’m praying that Miss Texas – Brittany Booker – wins the crown. Not just because she is a “stunning, 5’11”, green-eyed model,” as her Miss Texas biography describes her. And not because she looks fabulous in both an evening gown and a swimsuit (both of which are required in the competition). I’m backing 21-year-old Brittany because she is a devoted Christian. And while she is beautiful on the outside, she is even more beautiful on the inside. A Houston native, Brittany was raised in a Christian family, by parents who instilled in...

    Let me tell you a fairy tale. Once upon a time, a gorgeous blond California girl -- let's call her "Carrie" -- wanted to be a beauty queen. Asked about gay marriage, "Carrie" blurted out her truth: "I believe all Americans should enjoy equal rights to get married whether it is same-sex or opposite marriage. That's the way I was raised, and that's the way I think marriage should be." Afterward, a judge proclaimed her answer so offensive he voted against her and wanted to rip off her tiara. Instead of rebuking the judge, pageant officials said that "Carrie" needs...

    In on-camera interviews set to be posted on the official Miss USA website, 2011 pageant hopefuls are being asked if they believe evolution should be taught in schools, and if they would ever pose for nude photographs. According to Paula Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization (MUO), which also operates Miss USA, these “topics are very relevant and in the news.” Others wonder if MUO is just trying to stoke a Carrie Prejean-style controversy in the days preceding its June 19 live telecast. “The girls are scared to death. They witnessed with Carrie Prejean how a firestorm can create...

    Potential presidential candidate Donald Trump had to negotiate a whole lot of blind emotion as a recent guest on The View. Like Carrie Prejean, The Donald was handed a question he didn't ask for. And his answer also left the asker exasperated. Joy Behar brought up Trump's recent words about Obama's mysterious childhood and asked him if he was "a birther." Birther is one of those identity words of the left meant to stigmatize opponents into silent fear. But Trump just spoke the language of common sense. Trump's position essentially is one of "trust but verify," as Reagan used to...

    17-year-old Miss Nebraska, Teresa Scanlan, won the 2011 Miss America Crown(...) Pageant judge Joy Behar asked the contestant whether she would vote for an atheist. "Yes," she answered. She's not old enough to vote yet, but when Scanlan is of age, her vote will be based on political policies, not on religion. Scanlan's response is in keeping with the ongoing results of an online poll at the website God Discussion, a site which deems itself "a place for seekers who do not want to go to church." At the time of this writing, of 323 respondents, 93% agree with...

  • Former Miss California Prejean marries Raiders QB

    Former Miss California Carrie Prejean is now Mrs. Kyle Boller, after marrying the Oakland Raiders quarterback at a San Diego resort. The San Diego Union Tribune says the dethroned beauty queen and the 29-year-old quarterback tied the knot late Friday in a private ceremony at the Grand Del Mar. Among the guests were Gateway computer founder Ted Waitt, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Matt Nordgren. The 23-year-old bride made headlines last year after making controversial remarks during the Miss USA pageant that marriage should be between a man and a woman. Prejean eventually surrendered...

    Beauty queen Carrie Prejean is about to add a veil to her crown. The ex-Miss California will marry NFL quarterback Kyle Boller on Friday at The Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego , TMZ.com reports. The 23-year-old San Diegan’s nuptials come more than a year after she commented on gay marriage at the 2009 Miss USA pageant. In response to pageant judge Perez Hilton’s question about same-sex marriage laws in the United States, she said, “I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a...

    I see that, for the second year in a row, politics has intruded upon the Miss USA contest. After last year's tedious debacle with Carrie Prejean and the gay-marriage question, you'd think they would have learned to steer clear of hot-button social issues. In the final round of this year's contest, the beautiful blonde who came in second was asked what she thought of Arizona's new immigration law. This is a subject that has spurred heated and unpleasant discussions across the land, but Miss Oklahoma was up to the task. She began her answer by saying "I'm a huge believer...

    Many people on the left believe that they are tolerant because they are pro-choice, favor gay marriage and are generally socially liberal. But that is not tolerance. Tolerance is putting up with viewpoints and behavior that you don’t agree with. Liberals and leftists have a very hard time with that. For the second time in two years, agreeing with a majority of Americans is verboten at the Miss USA beauty pageant. In 2009, Carrie Prejean

    Miss Michigan Rima Fakih has become the first Arab-American and Muslim to be crowned Miss America. Fakih, 24, is of Lebanese descent. She won the swimsuit, evening gown and interview competitions. Fakih said during her interview that she believes birth control should be paid for by a national health insurance program, a marked contrast politically from Miss USA runner up Carrie Prejean's controversial comment last year opposing gay marriage. “This is historic,” said Imad Hamad of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. “This shows the greatness of America, how everyone can have a chance to make it," he told the Detroit Free...

    Remember Carrie Prejean? She was the Miss USA contestant last year who was attacked first for her views on gay marriage and then again weeks later for a series of sexy photos that were deemed so racy, they almost cost the reigning Miss California her crown. Well, times sure have changed at Miss USA under the tutelage of its owner, real estate tycoon and media personality Donald Trump. Last week, the 51 Miss USA hopefuls convened in Las Vegas and shot their official contestant photos with photographer Fadil Berisha. Miss Virginia and Miss Kansas are even braless, donning only open...
  • The Carrie Effect (Support for Gay Marriage has Tumbled because of What happened to Carrie Prejean)

    In the spring of 2009, a few states moved to gay marriage and public opinion seemed to shift abruptly in gay marriage's favor. But by May of that year, support for gay marriage just as abruptly tumbled. Why? I believe I was the first person, in the National Review cover story "The Carrie Effect," to publicly credit the impact of Carrie Prejean. Pre-Carrie, even most conservative media outlets avoided gay marriage. Carrie gave Fox News and major radio talk show hosts a vehicle for talking about the issue that they understood and liked. The general public was exposed to the...
