  • LGBT rights vs. religious freedom: top court ruling on Trinity Western case today (Canada)

    The Supreme Court of Canada will deliver a landmark ruling Friday in a closely-watched case that weighs religious freedom against LGBT rights. The judgment effectively could determine whether Trinity Western University (TWU) — a private, evangelical Christian post-secondary institution — can operate a law school at its Langley, B.C. campus. Law societies in B.C., Nova Scotia and Ontario have refused to accredit Trinity's program, arguing that the school's "community covenant" — which requires students to abstain from sex outside heterosexual marriage — discriminates against LGBT people. In B.C. and Nova Scotia, the courts have sided with TWU, ruling the university...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A jury found the mother and her girlfriend guilty of various charges in the beating death of 5-year-old Ta'Naejah McCloud. The girlfriend, Ursula Owens, faces life in prison after a jury convicted her of murder, reckless homicide, felonious assault and other charges. Jurors found Ta'Naejah's mother, Tequila Crump, not guilty of murder, but guilty of a lesser-included reckless homicide and endangering children charges. The jury, made up entirely of women, delivered its verdict to Judge Robert McClelland after deliberating for nearly three full days.

    Gun-control activist David Hogg took to Twitter on Tuesday to spread a conspiracy theory about the end of so-called “net neutrality.” He stated that the companies that provide internet services and “the politicians” will conspire against websites that help register voters. “Just wait till ISPs start collaborating with the politicians to slow down vote registration websites to suppress peoples right to vote. The survival of #NetNeutrality is up to you this November,” he wrote.

    For all those Sony fanboys who at one point argued that Ellie from The Last Us wasn’t actually a lesbian, and that the interracial kiss she shared with her dying friend in The Last of Us: Left Behind was just a moment of intense emotional reactions. However, as revealed during this year’s E3 showcase, it was hammered home that Ellie is indeed a full-on, hardcore, need-no-man lesbian. The video cinematic mixes itself in with what Naughty Dog attempts to portray as in-game play, but it’s pretty obvious that the gameplay won’t be anywhere near as cinematic as it’s portrayed in...
  • Yikes, BACKFIRE! Alyssa Milano SO ENRAGED by Dana Loesch she accidentally proves #NoRA is all FAIL

    Sheesh, Alyssa Milano seems upset with Dana Loesch for sharing a lil ol’ story we wrote about her when she bragged about beating the NRA. It’s not our fault Alyssa doesn’t understand many things she’s advocating for when it comes to gun control are already in place and that it’s a lack of enforcement and a failure of the system that sadly leads to many mass shootings. Which is why we laugh so hard when gun grabbers demand MORE LAWS – maybe they think if they make some things DOUBLY ILLEGAL that will do the trick this time.
  • Swatting hoax targets #NeverAgain activists (You Won't Believe the BIZARRE Reaction!!!)

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel ^ | June 8, 2018 | Erika Pesantes
    They’re bogus 911 calls with real consequences— and public figures or celebrities are often the victims. This week, 18-year-old activist David Hogg in Parkland and fellow #NeverAgain student leader Cameron Kasky in West Delray were targeted by swatting calls, according to authorities in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Named after the response by police SWAT squads who respond to the calls, false 911 callers often describe emergencies involving barricaded gunmen or hostages in an attempt to draw heavily-armed officers. These fake 911 callers often spoof a victim’s phone, making it appear as though the victim is placing the emergency call.
  • Palm Beach Cty Sheriff's Office investigating 'swatting' call in suburban Delray Beach (Hogg's Pal)

    WPTV ^ | June 8, 2018 | Michelle Quesada
    Deputies recently swarmed a suburban Delray Beach neighborhood, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office put its chopper in the air and called out its SWAT team. Then they learned they were responding to a fake 911 call. It's called "swatting" and it happened Wednesday. The 911 caller said there was a stabbing and a hostage situation. It turns out the day before the Broward County Sheriff's Office received a similar call and now the two incidents may be connected. "We had to deploy a lot of resources down there including putting a SWAT team in that direction. Turned out, it...

    New Hampshire’s Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed into law on Friday a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors. Medical and mental health professionals — including the American Medical Association — say the practice to change a minor's sexual orientation or gender identity is proven to be ineffective and can cause psychological harm to LGBTQ youth. “Discrimination — in any form — is unacceptable and runs contrary to New Hampshire’s Live Free or Die Spirit,” Sununu said in a statement, as reported by WMUR. “If we really want to be the ‘Live Free or Die’ state, we must ensure that...

    Political Insider ^ | June 6, 2018 | Ann
    “Swatting,” the act of making a false report to emergency services in an attempt to dispatch law enforcement to a targeted address, is illegal and dangerous; in December 2017, a man in Kansas was shot and killed in a swatting incident. So it’s rather peculiar that vehement anti-gun activist David Hogg all but brushed off the swatting call made against his family on Tuesday. Hogg told ABC News, “The swatting incident was just a silly prank.” ...Really? Hogg calls for boycotts against any company that donates as much as a penny to gun manufacturers, but an illegal swatting call against...

    Parents, only YOU can set your children free from classroom indoctrination When little school kids talk about what they are learning in class, it’s no longer about anything to do concerning the ‘Three Rs’, it’s about the Politics of Inclusion, which they learn through indoctrination. Self-acclaimed Patron Saint of Tolerance and Diversity Jessi Cruickshank leads children in this CBC video in a “rah!” “rah!” for Happy Pride Month, which according to Cruickshank, viewers “loved”.

    FULL TITLE: Parkland survivor David Hogg's home is swatted: Cops swarm gun safety advocate's family house after they got a hoax call saying someone had been taken hostage A heavily armed SWAT team from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office this morning descended on the home of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg in response to a hoax call reporting a hostage situation. A news helicopter from Local10 was over the scene in Coral Springs as multiple officers and sheriff's deputies surrounded the home. The unidentified caller who sparked the 'swatting' claimed that a stabbing had occurred and that someone was barricaded...

    The European Court of Justice has ruled that a gay Romanian-American couple is entitled to the same residency rights as other married couples in the European Union. Romanian Adrian Coman and his American husband Claibourn Robert Hamilton, have fought a six-year legal battle to get their marriage in Belgium legally recognized in Romania. "I am so excited, that we are one step closer to being recognized as a family," Claibourn Robert Hamilton said. And his husband Adrian also said he wants their marriage to be recognised. "We cannot be something else than married, and we hope that it is only...

    Publix was on the receiving end of Hogg’s latest stab at fascist activism thanks to the company’s previous financial support for Adam Putnam, Florida’s agriculture commissioner and a candidate for the GOP nomination for governor who is proud of the support he gets from the National Rifle Association. In a Twitter post published a week before Friday’s demonstrations, Hogg demanded a payment of $1 million from the supermarket chain to make up for its support of Putnam — and tried to extort a humiliating promise from Publix to make its politics conform to a teenage liberal’s demands. I call on...

    With Parkland high school graduate David Hogg expected to announce a 60-day, 20-state, 75-stop summer bus tour Monday to push for more stringent gun control laws and to register young people to vote, the 18-year-old found himself facing another daunting challenge that could break the internet if he accepts. Kaitlin Bennett, the Kent State grad who took the internet by storm recently when she posed on campus with an AR-10 strapped across her back, took to social media to challenge Hogg to an arm wrestling contest.

    On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. While the decision ends an almost six-year legal battle, a new journey begins. This nation stands at the proverbial fork in the road. One path will lead us closer to a society controlled by hostility — one in which those who hold the dominant view in society will use government as a weapon to punish individuals who fail to adopt the prevailing orthodoxy. The other path will move us toward a truly tolerant society — one with room for individuals who believe,...
  • More Say 'Nature' Than 'Nurture' Explains Sexual Orientation

    Gallup ^ | May 24nd 2018 | Lydia Saad
    Half of Americans in Gallup's 2018 Values and Beliefs poll say that being gay or lesbian is a trait from birth, easily eclipsing the 30% who believe it is a product of upbringing and environment. This is consistent with findings over the past few years. Another 10% say both explanations play a role, while 4% attribute being gay to something else and 6% are unsure. When Gallup first asked this "nature vs. nurture" question in 1977, a majority of U.S. adults (56%) said being gay or lesbian was due to people's upbringing and environment, and only 13% saw it as...

    In reality, of course, it shouldn’t matter what other people think. But as a measure of social change, the Gallup organization has once again uncovered another shift in Americans’ thinking. It’s intriguing despite that unbelievably boring sociology professor I had quite a few years ago.Back in 1977 when Gallup first asked why people thought gays were gay and lesbians were lesbians — otherwise known as “nature vs nurture” — a substantial majority of Americans knew it was their upbringing and environment. Back then, 56 percent said that and only 13 percent said it was a birth trait.That thinking didn’t...

    Western culture is in the midst of a full-bore campaign to promote the full acceptance – indeed, the “celebration” of non-marital sexual behavior, including homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism. Hollywood is certainly playing its part in this indoctrination process. There has been a concerted effort by the film industry to present a positive portrayal of the LGBTQ lifestyle. According to industry analysis site BoxOfficeMojo.com, out of over 200 film genres and sub-genres, gay and Lesbian-themed films rank an astounding #6 in terms of sheer quantity. Since 2007, some 342 gay/lesbian movies have been produced – more than double the number of...
