  • The Religious Right Is Right to Be Scared: Christianity Is Dying in America (Barf alert)

    Daily Beast ^ | 26 Dec 15 | Jay Michaelson - LGBT Activist
    <p>Among the Christian Right, and most Republican presidential candidates, it’s now an article of faith that the United States is persecuting Christians and Christian-owned businesses—that religion itself is under attack.</p> <p>Why has this bizarre myth that Christianity is under assault in the most religious developed country on Earth been so successful? Because, in a way, it’s true. American Christianity is in decline—not because of a “war on faith” but because of a host of demographic and social trends. The gays and liberals are just scapegoats.</p>

    Less than 24 hours after Arizonas governor vetoed a bill that had been criticized as anti-gay, similar legislation in Georgia and Mississippi are hitting new roadblocks. Georgia state senator Josh McKoon conceded on Thursday that support for his religious-freedom bill is evaporating, 11Alive Atlanta reports. He told the Huffington Post that a committee vote on his legislation, previously scheduled for next Monday, has been taken off the calendar. McKoon said his bill merely protects religious rights of Georgia residents, but critics argued it would allow business owners to refuse services to gays based on religious beliefs. In Mississippi, the state...
  • How Many American Men Are Gay?

    WHAT percent of American men are gay? This question is notoriously difficult to answer. Historical estimates range from about 2 percent to 10 percent. But somewhere in the exabytes of data that human beings create every day are answers to even the most challenging questions. Using surveys, social networks, pornographic searches and dating sites, I recently studied evidence on the number of gay men. The data used in this analysis is available in highly aggregated form only and can be downloaded from publicly accessible sites. While none of these data sources are ideal, they combine to tell a consistent story....

    STEUBENVILLE, Ohio A group of gay university alumni and allies is challenging the Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, over its inclusion of homosexuality in its course on deviant behavior. The group, Gay Alumni and Allies of Catholic Universities, said that Franciscan University, a conservative Catholic institution on the Ohio-West Virginia border, is contributing to a culture of hate and ignorance by teaching ideological falsehoods in the classroom rather than solid, proven research and evidence. But according to the University, the principles of academic freedom apply to the course and that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. At issue is this...

    It was because he was going to retire anyway, lost a favorite port town in redistricting and had a tough race last time. Was this really why Congressman Barney Frank announced today hes retiring from the House of Representatives? Perhaps another reason was hes no longer chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and like a lot of bullies, Mr. Frank found its not easy to be stripped of the power to torment and humiliate others.

    Actress Kristin Chenoweth is a self-identifying Christian who has sparked controversy by speaking out about her support of the gay community in an interview with lesbian and gay publication The Advocate. The LBGT publication asked the TV and theater star: "What would you ask people who cite Christianity as their justification for passing laws that discriminate against people?" Chenoweth replied, "I would ask, 'What would Jesus do?' It sounds so clich and Pollyanna-ish, but I have a feeling if he were on the earth today, he wouldn't be walking around saying, 'Youre going to hell' and 'You're wrong, you're wrong,...

    Since its beginning, West Hollywood has offered the countrys closest approximation of a gay city. It was founded by gay activists over 26 years ago, most of its City Council members are gay, and the community is famous for its concentration of gay residents and nightlife. But an uncommonly bitter election has exposed a growing divide over what West Hollywood should represent, with prosperity and urban development pitted against the citys history as a countercultural haven. The six challengers in Tuesdays City Council election all of them gay men are seeking to oust three incumbents by running on...

    SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (KGO) -- A San Leandro man molested an 8-year-girl at a Bay Area Walmart store Monday, the second such attack in less than two weeks. 29-year-old San Leandro resident Carlyle Villazon was arrested Friday after two good Samaritans jumped in to help. Police are calling those men heroes. They are also reluctant heroes. One of them did not want to do television interviews to talk about what happened. Police say predators know how easy it is for kids to become separated from their parents in large stores and they are warning parents to keep their children close...

    A local woman is behind bars, accused of pretending to be a teenage boy in order to have sex with a teenage girl. 31 year old Patricia Dye faces a number of charges, including importuning, corruption of a minor, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The Warren County Prosecutor tells Local 12 that Dye allegedly cut her hair and used the name "Matt Abrams" when courting the girl, who is between the ages of 13 and 16 years old. The girl went to a motel with Dye in June, but didn't know Dye was really a woman. When...

    School districts, state agency blamed in molestation case Indiana child welfare officials and school districts in two states had a responsibility to protect children in Lee N. Tibbetts classroom, but a series of miscommunications and missteps among those agencies failed to catch a pattern of problematic behavior over three years. That breakdown allowed Tibbetts to remain in the classroom despite multiple accusations, including one that eventually led to the math teacher being arrested on charges alleging he molested a student while teaching for Indianapolis Public Schools. A review by The Indianapolis Star and The Cincinnati Enquirer shows that red flags...

    Ive received a lot of e-mail asking why I havent written about the controversy over Kevin Jennings, Barack Obamas safe schools czar. To be honest, the story is so shocking that I havent quite grasped how to approach it. Jennings ran an outfit called Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) from its inception in 1995 until last year. During that time, as Jim Hoft at Big Government has detailed, GLSEN offered sex education seminars to young teenagers within the framework of public education that went way, way beyond explanations of human biology and disease transmission. According to multiple sources,...

    A few years ago, I attempted to alert America as to what can happen if the radicals became entrenched in your body politic. In our case, the Massachusetts legislature created and funded a super commission that would deal with all things gay, lesbian, trans, bi, and that super commission would have power over just about every legislator in the state. Mass Resistance brought to my attention a publication this commission created and was paid for by both taxpayers and Boston's elite. This Little Black Book was handed out to middle and high schoolers in metro Boston. When I told a...

    Kevin Jennings has been appointed as director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools under Obama. Here's a bit of his bio: In 1997, according to a transcript put together by Brian J. Burt, managing editor of the student-run Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, Jennings said he hoped that promoting homosexuality in schools would be considered fine in the future. The group Jennings founded has also been accused of promoting homosexuality in schools. At a GLSEN conference in 2000, co-sponsored with the Massachusetts Department of Education, the group landed in hot water when it was revealed...

    The New York State Senate held an emotional debate on Wednesday in which there was talk of belief and conscience and eloquent reminders of earlier civil rights struggles. It then took a stand against equality and fairness. By a 38-to-24 vote, lawmakers chose to continue the states discrimination against couples who want to get married and simply happen to be the same sex. Like Gov. David Paterson and advocates who pressed for the vote, we had hoped a sufficient number of senators would do the right thing when required to take a stand. In the end, though, not a single...

    Dressed in a tan cloth coat and crocheted white hat and pulling a wheeled shopping basket behind her, Eve Rojek trudged up and down Castro Street in a sputtering rain the other day. She walked up a stretch of sidewalk between 18th and 19th streets and then down and then back up again. Rojek is an actress, cast as a middle-aged extra in a long-anticipated feature film about the life and death of San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk that began shooting in the city last week. Like everyone and everything in view of the camera, Rojek needed to convey the...
