    Moments after ABC revealed that President Obama said during a taped interview with "Good Morning America" that he supports gay marriage, Fox News' Shepard Smith applauded the president, and warned conservatives not to use the evolution of Obama's view on same sex unions as part of its presidential campaign. "The President of the United States, now in the 21st century," Smith said. "What I'm most curious about, in this time of rising debts and medical issues and all the rest, if Republicans would go out on a limb and try to make this a campaign issue while sitting very firmly,...

    Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday he’s “absolutely comfortable” with same-sex marriage, making him the highest Obama administration official to indicate support for the issue. President Barack Obama remains formally opposed to same-sex marriage, though his position has been said to be “evolving.” On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host David Gregory asked Biden about his own views. “And you’re comfortable with same-sex marriage now?” Gregory asked. “I am vice president of the United States of America,” Biden said. “The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men...

    Dr. Ken Hutcherson, the pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Redmond, Wash., posted an announcement earlier this week that many close to him – including his wife – have known for years. Hutcherson revealed that he is the "gayest man I know." "Coming out of the closet is a difficult decision to make, especially when close, personal relationships are at stake," Hutcherson wrote in his column, Hutch Speaks Out, that was published on WorldNetDaily. "Will my family abandon me? Will my friends still look at me the same? Will this announcement be worth the risk? These are indeed valid concerns...

    One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama's 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called 'New York girlfriend.' Obama never referred to her by name, or even by psuedonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail. But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the 'New York girlfriend' was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago. "During an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir...

    A bill currently being amended in the California State Senate would make it harder for doctors who practice conversion therapy to service homosexual clients. If passed, it would be the first bill in the United States to regulate the practice. Senate Bill 1127, which was introduced by State Senator Ted Lieu in February, would ban conversion therapy for anyone under the age of 18 and require adults to sign an informed consent form before entering treatment. "Under no circumstances shall a patient under 18 years of age undergo sexual orientation change efforts, regardless of the willingness of a patient's parent,...

In a statement obtained Tuesday by Jennifer Rubin, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, Grenell said, "While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama's foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign." Grenell also thanked Romney for not making his sexual orientation an issue when...

Barney Frank (D-Mass.) this week gave President Obama high marks on gay issues, but said it's "a problem" that the administration has declined to endorse gay marriage. Obama this week stirred criticism from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community when, during a trip to North Carolina, he declined to weigh in on a pending state bill banning civil unions and domestic partnerships. Frank, the first openly gay member of Congress, said Obama's silence was expected but disappointing. "It's not...

The proposal came about after the Kansas Equality Coalition encouraged the Hutchinson City Council to add gender identity and sexual orientation to the city's human relations code. The law would make it illegal for churches that rent their facilities to the public to prevent anyone from renting their facility based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

    As noted on another thread, political pundits often compare presidential elections to previous ones. In the case of Romney vs. Obama, conservatives should look north to the Dominion of Celine Dion and Maple Syrup. This is a repeat of John Tory vs. Dalton McGuinty, the 2007 election in Ontario during which the two candidates contested governance of Canada's largest province. The only difference, other than citizenship, is that John Tory was not Mormon. He was a nominal Protestant, for the most part indistinguishable from the Kennedy Catholic he was challenging. Nevertheless, religion would cost him the election. As Ontario Liberal...

    We have been watching a prolonged assault on the hearts and minds of our nation’s kids for several decades now. We have seen the standards of education lowered to the point that many kids leave school unable to even write a grammatically correct paragraph, but with a firm grasp of “self esteem.” This is, of course, by design. The communists who have wormed their way into positions of power in all our institutions and government have as a goal the “dumbing-down” of our young people. Why?

So, they undertake to silence anyone who tells the truth about their evil agenda. We have recently seen a highly organized campaign to silence the biggest talker on the radio, Rush Limbaugh, by...

He could even turn it into a full-time job, the commission decided.

On one flank are the forces of the sexual revolution, including gays, feminists, adulterers, the promiscuous, and the pro-abortion folks. On the other flank are the cultural relativists, and multiculturalists. This camp opposes the ideas of truth, beauty, and intrinsic quality.

    I’m not. Gay, I mean. I’m not gay. Nor do I have a personal opinion on your gayness. Or half gayness. Or exploratory gayness. Or lack of gayness altogether. It’s a lifestyle choice–to not spend time dwelling upon who may or may not be operating at varying levels of gay. But this piece isn’t about being gay, or straight. If you are a TrueCon© purist in the mood for a brawl over the virtueless life of the American homosexual, the door is right behind you. If you’re one of those allegedly virtueless American homos looking for a forum to air...

    Okay, so I’m a sucker for show tunes and glam rock. Yes, I enjoy the amazing talent of Idina Menzel in the Broadway hit “Wicked.” Absolutely, I am left awestruck after hearing the wonderful scores of Claude-Michel Schönberg in “Les Mis.” And let’s not even dispute the fact that Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, along with the rest of the folks in Fleetwood Mac are actually seraphim sent from the very throne of God to give us the eleventh commandment, which is “don’t stop thinking about tomorrow.” If all of that makes me less of a man, then men need...
  • Gay Cops Come Out for Romney

    Pinal County (Arizona) Sheriff Paul Babeu is a staunch supporter of deportation, a co-chair for the Arizona’s Romney campaign and a candidate for Congress. He’s also gay, which is something that just came out. Apparently he had a secret relationship for three years with a Mexican immigrant. This guy who’s been having gay sex with a Mexican immigrant has about as much chance of being elected to Congress in Arizona, as a guy who’s been having gay sex with a Mexican immigrant being elected to Congress in Arizona.

    An Arizona sheriff running for Congress as a Republican denied accusations Saturday that he had threatened to deport an alleged ex-lover, a Mexican national. In the process, he also resigned from a volunteer position with Mitt Romney's Arizona campaign and came out as gay. After a report published Thursday by the weekly Phoenix New Times, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu acknowledged that he had a "personal relationship" with a man identified only as Jose.

  • New Jersey Governor Christie Vetoes Gay Marriage Bill

    (AP) TRENTON, N.J. - Gov. Chris Christie has followed through on his promise to reject a bill allowing same-sex marriage in New Jersey by quickly vetoing the measure Friday. The veto came a day after the state Assembly passed the bill. The state Senate had passed it on Monday. Christie, a Republican who opposes same-sex marriage, had vowed "very swift action" once the bill reached his desk. In returning the bill to the Legislature, Christie reaffirmed his view that voters should decide whether to change the definition of marriage in New Jersey. His veto also proposed creating an ombudsman to...

    Sharonda Cheeves and Jesslyn Williams got into trouble because they were drunk and disorderly, got ejected from a North Philadelphia nightclub, and just wouldn't go home. On Thursday, they couldn't go home. Cheeves, 24, and Williams, 23, were each sentenced to multiyear prison terms for hitting six people - killing one - as they circled Club Motivation four times in their Chevrolet Monte Carlo on Sept. 4, 2010, picking off patrons on the sidewalk. "I know you don't know me, so you don't know that's not who I am," a weeping Williams told Kadella Davis, who as "Mama Breakfast" hosted...

    The Department of Health and Human Services has states spooked. At least, legislators in Kansas cited the administration's contraception mandate as a reason to expedite passage of a bill to protect religious freedoms: Supporters of a proposal in Kansas that’s described as an attempt to protect religious freedoms told state legislators Tuesday that President Obama’s ill-fated mandate for insurance coverage of birth control is a compelling example of why the measure is needed. …The state House Judiciary Committee had a hearing on the proposed Preservation of Religious Freedom Act and is expected to vote on it by Monday. State Rep....

    1) Gay marriage is incompatible with Christianity (and for that matter, Islam & Judaism). If someone asks you why you oppose gay marriage, the only thing you really have to say to explain it is, "I'm a Christian." God doesn't condemn anyone for who he is; so if you're attracted to the same sex, that absolutely, unconditionally doesn't make you bad, evil or "un-Christian." On the other hand, let me note that I do consider hating, tormenting, or bullying people because of their sexual orientation to be distinctively "un-Christian" behavior. As Billy Graham has said, “God will not judge a...

    If it were not so terribly sad and disgusting, it might be just a bit humorous. But, there is no humor in the radical homosexual movement and its treatment of those who oppose its agenda. That fact was once again illustrated quite clearly recently in the Montgomery County, Maryland School District when the blatant hypocrisy of leftist radicals was on display. What might be ironically humorous if it were not so rotten is that the tables were turned on those who demand fair and unbiased treatment for all sexual deviants, but whose desire for fairness suddenly disappears when they are...

    For years we have been told that homosexuality is something people are born with - like the color of one's skin - and that it can't be changed. Gay-rights activists insist this is so, because, they say, if people don't choose to be gay, it would be wrong to discriminate against them in things like marriage, adoption, and legal benefits. And heaven help those who disagree. Just ask actress Cynthia Nixon, who in a recent New York Times Magazine article, had the gall to admit that she chose to be gay. Nixon, who played one of the characters on the...
