  • Some straight people don’t know that they’re straight

    It never ceases to amaze me when I come across reports of problems in our society which I had no idea were even issues. One of these cropped up last night while reading the latest blog entry from Washington Post editor Jonathan Capehart, where he discusses a peculiar aspect of demographic data collection. We’re apparently having a tough time accurately counting the number of gay, lesbian and bisexual people in the United States and it’s not because of too many people being in the closet. (Though I’m sure that’s still an issue as well.) No, the problem currently under examination...
  • The Incredible Intolerance of Ultra-Liberals and Gays

    04/27/2015 9:55:19 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 57 replies ^ | April 27, 2015 | Mark Nuckols
    Gay people in America are among the most self-righteous and intolerant people there are. The most recent gay backlash against two of their own for stepping out of line shows just how deep politically correct intolerance runs in their community, especially in ultra-liberal bastions like New York. Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass are two prominent gay businessmen in NYC and the owners of OUT NYC, a hotel catering primarily to gay people. Reisner is also Jewish and a supporter of Israel, and last week he hosted a small reception for Senator Ted Cruz from Texas. The dozen attendants discussed foreign...
  • The RFRA Battle Exposed A Dangerous Truth

    The opponents of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in Indiana were loud and organized. They received support from media, and from major money players like Salesforce and Apple. Aggressively, and without apology, they moved their narrative on RFRA and forced a "fix" that, in essence, guts the law's original intent. They won the battle, and they are happy. And, in the process, exposed their new view on freedom, equality and acceptance. Jonah Goldberg is right. Liberal Fascism is very real. Words like fascism, in today's America, end conversation before it can really begin (the same is true for words like...
  • Is Being Gay a Choice?

    Last week, Dr. Ben Carson stepped onto a political mine -- really, jumped onto it with both feet -- when he answered a question from CNN's Chris Cuomo about the nature of homosexuality. "You think being gay is a choice?" Cuomo asked Carson, after Carson rightly stated that being black and being gay are two very different phenomena. "Absolutely," replied Carson. He then went on to explain, "A lot of people who go into prison straight go into prison straight -- and when they come out, they're gay." Carson's unstated line of reasoning is perfectly logical. When Cuomo asked Carson...

    If you are reading my column, you are familiar with the claim that campus administrators often seek to deprive young conservatives of the ability to defend their beliefs in the marketplace of ideas. But you may not have heard the claim that campus administrators often deprive young leftists of the ability to defend their beliefs in the marketplace of ideas. The latter contention is the subject of the present column. It begins with a salient example from my own campus, UNC-Wilmington. Here on my campus, a bold Christian organization called Ratio Christi often seeks to open up the marketplace of...
  • Did Gay Men Liberate Benham Brothers?

    Are you a heterosexual man who enjoys dressing stylishly, who likes staying in shape and sometimes wearing tight T-shirts while working out, who has no problem showing brotherly affection to other men? If we are to believe what a leading gay journalist says, it’s all because you have been liberated by gay men.Are you wondering what I’m talking about? Allow me to explain.I have known Jason and David Benham since 2003, and as long as I have known the Benham twins, they have been outgoing, gregarious, positive, complimentary, devoted to the Lord and their families, and in very good shape.As...

    There is so much wrong with the following story that like other great art that imitates life, I think I’ll let the story mostly speak for itself…and many of the ills of society in general. So, stop me if you heard this one…. Two lesbians put up an ad on Craigslist looking for a sperm donor. This is not in dispute. They put up an ad on Craigslist looking for sperm, like sperm are a couch or a T.V. or those old worthless beanie babies your haggard aunt collected. In response to the ad, one William Marotta, who apparently...
  • 7 Reasons Marriage Is Falling Apart in America

    It's no secret that marriage has been in decline in America, but most people don't realize how quickly it has been crumbling. The numbers are staggering and the sea change in attitude that has gone along with them would shock previous generations of Americans. "In 1960, two-thirds (68%) of all twenty-somethings were married. In 2008, just 26% were." "To get a sense of how different attitudes were in the 1960s, perhaps this will do it. (M)arried women were asked, ‘In your opinion, do you think it is all right for a woman to have sexual relations before marriage with a...
  • Rewriting History: New "Gay Friendly" Bible Published

    The King James version of the Bible has been hijacked by gay activists who want to rewrite history. Anonymous editors have published a Bible "friendly to gays," and have edited eight major verses to fit their narrative. The "Queen James Bible" is available on Amazon and is described as, "A Gay Bible. The Queen James Bible is based on The King James Bible, edited to prevent homophobic misinterpretation." The description and reasoning for the changes is below. Why We Chose the King James Version We chose the 1769 form of the King James Bible for our revision for the following...

    Bravo for your compassionate Feb. 6 editorial A marriage, not a ''civil union' on the injustice that lesbian and gay couples face by being denied the rights that come only with civil marriage. No ''separate and unequal'' solutions will solve this inequity short of full civil-marriage equality for all. As a gay man, my relationship of nine years with my partner is not afforded the same immigration rights as straight married couples. Therefore, we will be forced to leave the United States next year for a nation that respects gay people's civil rights. America needs to wake up. TIM MILLER,...

    While liberal judges strike down law after law after law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman, polls show that most Americans are against legitimizing gay marriage. This fact has led conservative congressmen to draw up a Federal Marriage Amendment to "protect traditional marriage," and rightly so. Activist judges have repeatedly shown themselves to be out of step with the Constitution; apparently, this is not enough. Now, they are proving to be out of step with public opinion--making the Judicial branch of government increasingly resemble a web of Communist dictators. However, the margin of support for...
  • The Case Against Homosexual Marriage

    The question of homosexual marriage presents the American people with an inescapable moral challenge. The words homosexual and marriage are inherently contradictory. The very fact that these terms are in public conflict demonstrates the radical character of the social revolutionaries that now demand the legalization of homosexual marriage. For at least the last one hundred years, America has experienced an unprecedented season of social transformation. Now, this transformation has been extended to experimentation with the most basic institutions and cherished principles of our common life. A conversation about "homosexual marriage" is only possible if the concept of marriage is completely...

    WICHITA FALLS, Texas (BP)--I received an e-mail from a member of our community about a sermon I had preached concerning homosexuality. "Why do you feel you can speak with such authority on this subject when Jesus is quoted not one single time on the topic of homosexuality?" he asked. If you are a connoisseur of the cable news channels, you probably heard the same question posed to those who opposed the election of a homosexual bishop in the Episcopal Church last year or Massachusetts' supreme court declaring that "marriage" rights must be extended to homosexuals. "If Jesus had nothing to...

    BOSTON - A 21st century battle for gay rights is being fought with rhetoric from the civil rights movement of the 1960s - ideals that have echoed through Massachusetts' gay marriage campaign from its outset. Denunciations of "separate but equal" laws have energized a crowd of protesters fighting for new rights. U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, who helped organize the 1963 March on Washington, has weighed in with a brief to the state's highest court, as the legislative phase of the debate began and the courts prepared to revisit the landmark decision. "Let freedom ring. Let freedom ring. My...

    The following email has been flying around the Cleveland area since this weekend. It appears that the Diocesan contact for a recent Cleveland Diocese Gay and Lesbian Retreat is also the contact for the Egg Moon Farm, a lesbian compound described at as "Land Dykes." Here you go: If you thought the Cleveland Diocese Gay and Lesbian group was out of control before, you will not believe this one. The gay group at the diocese, futurechurch, and those who hate the church remain one big incestuous mess. I apologize in advance for the disturbing nature of this e-mail, but...

    The following appeared in "The Wanderer's" from the mail section. (This does not appear on the website, I had to type it in): In Cleveland, which has been racked with the most damaging sex abuse scandals outside of Boston and Los Angeles, diocesan officials, including Bishop Anthony Pilla, maintain a stiff upper lip as some homosexual activists in the chancery and parishes continue to transform parishes into gay-friendly communities. Consider: The Diocese of Cleveland's official web site ( greets the viewer with a rainbow flag, and gay activists at the diocese's Gay and Lesbian Family Ministry (GLFM) office are way...
