  • Federal judge orders taxpayer-funded sex change for wife killer

    09/04/2012 10:08:54 AM PDT · by ruralvoter · 53 replies
    A federal judge today ordered state prison officials to provide a taxpayer-funded sex-reassignment surgery to a transgender inmate serving life in prison for murder. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled in the case of Michelle Kosilek, who was born as a man but has received hormone treatments and lives as a woman in an all-male prison. Robert Kosilek was convicted of murder in the killing of his wife in 1990. Wolf is believed to be the first federal judge to order prison officials to provide the surgery for a transgender inmate. Kosilek first sued the Massachusetts Department of Correction 12...

    Austin American Statesman ^ | September 3, 2012 | Chuck Lindell
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — For gay and lesbian delegates to the Democratic National Convention, this week's gathering offers a momentous opportunity to vote, for the first time in history, on a party platform that calls for legalizing same-sex marriage. "This is historic," said Rich Bailey of Austin, a gay man who has been politically active for 26 years. "It's my first national convention, and I'm really excited I get to go to this one, especially one where we have an opportunity to vote on this plank." Delegates Sue Spell and Carol Cappa from Fort Worth, together for 11 years, have discussed...

    WHAT the Republicans painstakingly constructed here was meant to look like the biggest of tents. And still they couldn’t spare so much as a sleeping bag’s worth of space for the likes of me. Women were welcomed. During the prime evening television hours, the convention stage was festooned with them, and when they weren’t at the microphone, they were front and center in men’s remarks. Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney both gushed about their moms in tributes as tactical as they were teary. Latinos were plentiful and flexed their Spanish — “En América, todo es posible,” said Susana Martinez, the...

    What would you do if your son liked wearing dresses? One dad in Germany decided to put on a skirt of his own in support his little dress-loving fellow. When Nils Pikert's now 5-year-old son started wearing dresses, it turned a few heads but was generally not a big deal in their cosmopolitan hometown of Berlin. But when the family picked up and moved to the smaller South German village, all that changed, reports Gawker. Even though he loved wearing dresses, Pickert's son was too shy to put one on in public for fear of being laughed at, especially...

    A notary in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo has sparked controversy by accepting a civil union between three people. Public Notary Claudia do Nascimento Domingues has said the man and two women should be entitled to family rights. She says there is nothing in law to prevent such an arrangement. But the move has angered some religious groups, while one lawyer described it as "absurd and totally illegal". The three individuals, who have declined to speak to the press, have lived in Rio de Janeiro together for three years and share bills and other expenses. Ms Domingues says they...

    Charlie Rogers, former basketball star, now accused of faking hate crimes. LINCOLN, NE, August 22, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Charlie Rogers’ story about crawling at 4 a.m. on a Monday morning – bound, bloodied, and baying – across the street to her neighbor’s house after being brutally attacked by three men seemed too horrific to be true. Yesterday, police in Lincoln, Nebraska, concluded it was just that. The 33-year-old lesbian, a former University of Nebraska women’s basketball star, arrived on the front door of her neighbor Linda Rappl’s house on July 22, with a story out of a horror movie.

Kerry Gauthier, 56, hasn't been charged in the July incident, and authorities said he wouldn't be because the boy was older than 16, the legal age of consent, and no money was exchanged. Police say the teenager responded to the lawmaker's Craigslist ad for "no strings attached" sex. Gauthier admitted to the liaison, according to police reports made public late last week. The teen told police the...

The college, with 4,000 students, is now part of Minnesotans United for All Families, which opposes the proposed constitutional amendment that would limit marriage to one man and one woman. State law already prohibits gay marriage, but supporters of the amendment want it put in the state Constitution, so the Legislature or courts cannot make a change. Pastor Grant Stevensen, Minnesotans United for All Families faith director, said in a statement: "Five of the six Minnesota synods of the ELCA...

    Within hours of the shooting of the security guard at the Family Research Council last Wednesday, more than 20 gay organizations issued a joint statement that they “utterly reject and condemn such violence.” This is highly commendable. Unfortunately, they did not utterly reject, condemn, or even acknowledge their potential role in helping to create the toxic environment that may have contributed to the shooting. Consider how shrill gay activist rhetoric has become. In June, after Southern Baptists reaffirmed marriage as the union of one man and one woman (for conservative Christians who base their faith on the Bible, a no...

Craig is hoping to avoid repaying $217,000 in campaign funds the Federal Election Commission claims he misused to defend himself.

The 1994 comments came as he was running to unseat then-Sen. Edward M. Kennedy in Massachusetts. ... Now Scouts for Equality, a group pushing for the national scouting group to allow gay boys...

    Media Bias: What if they gave a news event and no one came? That's the story of the Chick-fil-A "Kiss-In" called by gay rights activists and copiously covered by the press. The real story is how the media played it up. In a dishonest bid to discredit the authentic display of national unity Aug. 1 over free-speech rights at Chick-fil-A, a fast-food chain whose CEO supports traditional marriage, the mainstream media marshaled their troops to cover what was billed as a "kiss-in" counterdemonstration by gay rights activists at the same outlets last Friday. One problem: The media outnumbered the kissers....

    There are ten premises in this debate that most conservatives, opponents and supporters of gay marriage alike, probably share: (1) Marriage benefits society, and so anything that harms marriage harms all of us, whether married or not. (2) Marriage directly benefits the individuals married. (3) It is on average better for children to be raised by two married parents than to be raised by single parents or by unwed cohabiting partners. (4) Because of the benefits identified in Premises 1-3 above, marriage should be encouraged by public policy and specifically should retain its privileged position in the law. (5) It...

A few months ago the CEO of Chick Fil A would have done nothing worse than echo a consensus so mainstream that it was adopted as a campaign position by the leftiest Democrat to sit in the White House. A few months later that same position is so outrageous that it leads to mass boycotts, threats of violence and mayors...

Friday's statement, which builds on comments Homeland Security officials made last summer, came three days after 84 lawmakers demanded the agency put its position in writing to help protect same-sex couples from deportation. "It is significant to me because it is expressly inclusive of LGBT families," said Lavi Soloway, an immigration attorney who represents a number of same-sex couples in deportation proceedings.

And there was a similar lack of necking in Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and San Francisco.

Colella, who is gay, made his decision in response to an announcement this month by The Boy Scouts of America affirming its policy of "not granting membership to open or avowed homosexuals." “I have no place in that organization. I knew it was the right thing to do for me,” Colella said. Colella, who has spent 18 years in the Scouts, sent a letter to...

    Did the Cathy family ever hide their beliefs? Did anyone who has ever visited a mall on a Sunday afternoon not know that Chik-Fil-A was always closed? I didn’t think so. The one thing about liberal ideas of free speech is that they believe in free speech as long as you agree with them. The second you disagree with them is when your right to free speech ends.

    During lunchtime today, I ventured to the closest Chick-fil-A to grab lunch and to show my support. It became evident pretty quickly that everyone else in the state of North Carolina decided to do the same. It took me nearly 45 minutes to even get close enough to the restaurant to park, and then another 30 minutes to get my food. I don’t regret a single minute of it, though. As I was standing around waiting for my lunch, an elderly lady standing near me began to strike up a conversation. She asked me how old I was, where I...

    The debate over Gay Marriage has come front and center in political debates lately, and with all of the electrons that have been spilled writing about it there is one detail that should not get lost in the shuffle. I am of course, referring to the bigotry, intolerance, and hatred of... the left. For starters, in its most basic form the debate is over how people on one side feel that marriage is between one man and one woman, while the other side feels that marriage between two adults should be recognized regardless of gender. This is one issue where...

    The chairman of Wikipedia’s U.K. fund-raising arm was banned from the service “for numerous violations of Wikipedia’s norms and policies,” after reports linked him to kinky bondage pornography and inappropriate editing. Ashley Van Haeften -- the head of the independent Wikimedia U.K. group -- was banned by an arbitration board on July 20, according to a story on The Daily Telegraph. The action was taken following a series of clashes over pornography on the popular online encyclopedia, and a series of edits to that material in violation of policy.
  • Chick-Fil-A Question: Can businesses kick out patrons improperly dressed or engaged in lewd conduct

    The above picture is what some gays/lesbians are calling on for dress on Fridays when going to Chick Fil-A My question is whether businesses have the right to require a dress code, and also be allowed to expel patrons for lewd behavior. There are Gay/Lesbian groups calling for boycotting/protests at Chick-Fil-A restaurants every Friday. What rights do businesses have today? Does this vary depending on the state? Can very skimpy dress (bikinis, etc) be grounds for expelling people from the business? What about behavior by adults that would be bad examples and considered lewd behavior in front of children....

    Rahm Emanuel put on a display of pomposity and indignation a few days ago when he suggested that Chik-Fil-A, whose President opposes gay marriage on the basis of his religion, was not welcome in Chicago because Chik-Fil-A allegedly does not share "Chicago values." The anti-gay views openly espoused by the president of a fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches have run afoul of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a local alderman, who are determined to block Chick-fil-A from expanding in Chicago. “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And...

    PORTLAND, Oregon, July 30, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - During a campaign fundraiser in Oregon last weekend, President Obama thanked and named as event organizer a man whom the New York Post pegged four years ago as the person who once controlled America’s largest producer of hardcore gay pornography. “I want to thank somebody who put so much work into this event Terry Bean. Give Terry a big round of applause,” said the president July 24. Bean, a longtime advocate for gay rights, became sole trustee of the Charles M. Holmes Foundation after its namesake and Bean’s friend, Chuck Holmes, died of...

    "Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. " There will be many antichrists before the world bears witness to the lawless one. The Church teaches us that " Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on...

    Forget about Bert and Ernie. I always thought Kermit the Frog was a little “light in the flippers,” if you know what I mean. Miss Piggy? Probably just cover (wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more). And how about that perennial bachelor, Fozzie Bear? Wocka Wocka, indeed. Or not. I don’t know. Still, a recent move by The Jim Henson Company makes you wonder. In a distinctly knee-jerk, anti-family development, the Muppet mogul has severed promotional ties with Chick-fil-A – the booming fast-food chain and American Cinderella story. The multi-billion dollar company has stirred the ire of left-wing extremists in...
