    Former Pope Benedict says in his memoirs that no-one pressured him to resign but alleges that a "gay lobby" in the Vatican had tried to influence decisions, a leading Italian newspaper reported on Friday. The book, called "The Last Conversations", is the first time in history that a former pope judges his own pontificate after it is over. It is due to be published on Sept. 9... In the book, Benedict says that he came to know of the presence of a "gay lobby" made up of four or five people who were seeking to influence Vatican decisions. The article...

    This current impasse over the "Bathroom Law" provides North Carolina with a unique opportunity to be a leader not only in standing up to the radical leftist agenda and the bullying of the gay lobby, but also in advancing liberty Recently, the state of North Carolina has found itself squarely in the cross hairs of the radical gay lobby and its social justice warrior (SJW) allies in business. The reason is a new law, passed by wide margins in both houses of the legislature and signed by Governor McCrory, which prevents local governments from passing ordinances allowing, among other things,...

    Governor Mike Pence of Indiana seems to have caved into enormous pressure and will ask the state legislature for new legislation to make it clear that Christian florists and bakers could be forced to participate in weddings that violate their religious beliefs.Last week, Indiana joined 19 other states and the federal government by enacting a law to protect religious believers from governmental encroachment on religious freedom. Such legislation was cited in the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision that determined religious employers could not be forced to supply abortion drugs to employees under ObamaCare.In a packed press conference this morning,...

    Modern liberalism is fundamentally illiberal. The evidences for this can be clearly seen all around us. There are hardly any basic areas of the liberty of the individual which today's progressives – in both parties – haven't trampled in their on-going efforts to destroy America That Was and replace it with a progressive utopian version in which individual rights are completely submerged and washed away in a flood of "social justice." Free speech, to the Left, should only cover saying things they agree with. Nobody needs to be secure in the privacy of their own homes (and indeed, privacy is...
  • Gay lobby scandal brewing in Russia

    01/18/2014 12:49:19 PM PST · by annalex · 34 replies
    This a collection of articles reflecting the developing news from Russia. The short of it is that a popular theologian, professor and thinker Deacon Kurayev decided to publicly condemn homosexuality and possibly pedophilia in his beloved Orthodox Church, to which he has every intention to remain faithful. The accusations take the form of a series of publications in Kuraev's blog; the accounts from the victims are published and the peculiar pattern of careers blocked or promoted based apparently on the intimacy of the candidate to a gay sponsor. The abuse itself is rarely criminal (other than grounds for a harassment...

    Your Holiness, It's difficult to know how or where to begin this Open Letter on the necessity of establishing a Papal Commission of Inquiry into Homosexuality, Pederasty, and the "Gay Lobby" in the Catholic Church. But since I must begin somewhere let me start with Question 21 posed to you by Brazilian journalist, Ilze Scamparini, during your first press conference of July 28, 2013 aboard the papal aircraft on route to Rome from World Youth Day in Rio, Here is the reported dialogue between you and Scamparini which touches upon the key topics of this missive:

    "On flight from Rio de Janeiro to Rome" Journalists fired improvised questions at the Pope for one hour and twenty minutes. The Pope agreed to hold the press conference straight after take-off, despite how tired he was after an eventful World Youth Day week in Brazil. Francis surprised journalists with his willingness to answer all questions put to him, even those which touched on really thorny issues like the reform of the Vatican Bank (IOR), the Ricca case, the gay lobby, Vatileaks and even the content of the black leather bad he carried on to the plane which flew him...

    Pope Francis has said that he does not judge homosexuals, including homosexual priests. “If they accept the Lord and have good will, who am I to judge them?” the Pope said. The Pope added that a homosexual orientation “is not the problem.” He called for charitable treatment of homosexuals, saying that they should not be marginalized. The Pope’s remarks-- made during a long and candid exchange with reporters who accompanied him on his return flight to Rome after a visit to Brazil for World Youth Day—were widely interpreted by reporters as an acceptance of homosexuals in the Catholic priesthood. But...

    An influential Vatican journalist has explicitly charged that the newly installed prelate of the Vatican bank has engaged in homosexual misconduct, and has been protected by other officials at the Vatican. Sandro Magister of L’Espresso reports that Msgr. Battista Ricca provided room and a job for a male companion while he was assigned as a Vatican diplomat in Uruguay between 1999 and 2001. The Italian cleric also frequented gay bars, and was once beaten in an altercation at a bar. Magister goes on to charge that although these incidents were well known, there were not noted on Msgr. Ricca’s personnel...

Asked about Newsweek’s...reference to Obama as the first gay president, [Newt] smiled and said: “Contrary to Newsweek’s clever cover I think from everything we know he’s heterosexual, so I don’t think he’s gay.” Then he got serious: “Look, he adopted the policy of his most powerful constituents. The fact is the gay caucus, the gay millionaires, gay activists are at the heart of the Obama system, and they had finally...

    Calif. lesbian mom gets deportation reprieve By LISA LEFF Associated Press Writer Apr. 23, 2009 SAN FRANCISCO -- A Philippines-born lesbian mother who was ordered to leave the country next month for overstaying her visa will likely be allowed to stay through next year due to Sen. Dianne Feinstein's intervention in the case. Feinstein introduced an emergency immigration bill late Wednesday on behalf of Shirley Tan, who lives in Pacifica with her 12-year-old twin sons and partner of 23 years. Feinstein spokeswoman Clare Bowyer says Tan can't be deported unless Congress votes down the legislation or it is allowed to...

Rio Linda High School students who were suspended last week for wearing offensive T-shirts to school can put them back on -- as long as they cover the word "sodomy" with duct tape. Several students were suspended last week for wearing T-shirts that said "Sodomy is sin." The shirts were a response to the national Day of Silence, a day of activism when some students take a daylong vow of silence in support of...

    The three federally funded agencies most responsible for turning Canada from a stolid conservative backwater into a raving feminist-gay backwater were cut off at the knees this week in a budget brought down by the Harper government. Reducing federal spending for the first time in nine years, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty also reported a $13-billion surplus in last year's operations. The surplus, he said, would be directed to debt reduction. Liberal governments had been increasing spending by an average 8.2 percent annually, peaking in their final year with a whopping 14.4-percent increase. That had been done in a desperate attempt...

    A Lesson In Bias Joseph Farah It's unusual for me to devote an entire column to an otherwise obscure assistant professor with a less-than distinguished writing career – let alone a second column. But Mel Seesholtz of Penn State University, the subject of my musings Wednesday, has responded in a letter to the editor suggesting I ignored the substance of his argument in favor of "bias free" education and dwelled only on his thinly veiled call for my death, along with James Dobson's. Somehow, it had never occurred to me that I should concern myself with the substance of an...

    Here are the dominant liberal reactions to President Bush and the Republicans' call for a vote on the Federal Marriage Amendment, which would amend the Constitution to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman: 1. Virtually every news report about President George W. Bush's support for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman describes it as "pandering" to the "far Right," the "radical Right" or, less pejoratively, "social conservatives" of the Republican Party. 2. Democrats regularly describe the amendment as enshrining "discrimination in the Constitution." In the words of...

Swoopes, a three-time Olympic gold medallist and four-time WNBA champion, currently plays for the Houston Comets.

    MONTREAL -- Despite his stance on same-sex marriage, Paul Martin will always be welcome to receive the sacrament of communion in his home riding, the prime minister's local parish priest said Saturday. "We can't use the eucharist as a time . . . to judge a person's conscience by refusing them communion," Rev. John Walsh told CJAD radio. Roman Catholic bishops meeting at the Vatican this weekend at the first synod led by newly anointed Pope Benedict may consider denying communion to politicians who pass laws that go against their faith. But Walsh, who also hosts a weekly show on...

Scouting For All, which recently participated in San Diego Gay Pride, was also involved in the same festival that featured pedophile Martin Ramirez, better known as Marty the Clown, who worked in the Gay Pride's Children's Garden. Scouting For All exists for the purpose of forcing the Boy Scouts of America to change its current policies and allow homosexuality into the organization. Additionally, it...

    Now that the gay lobby has successfully persuaded the Parliament of Canada to legalize same-sex marriage, the question arises: What will it do next? Will it retreat for a time into inactivity and wait for the public to bestow semi-respectability on the new condition? Or will it brazenly push the government to silence Christian churches that carry the gay-marriage conflict into the next federal election by removing their tax deductibility status? Or will it open a new campaign to prohibit all criticism of homosexual practice on moral grounds by deeming it an exercise in "hate"? Last week, eight days after...

    Pampa lawmaker seeks to put gay marriage ban in constitution ASSOCIATED PRESS AUSTIN (AP) - A proposed constitutional ban of same-sex marriages in Texas could also prevent gays and lesbians from private contract privileges, including end-of-life decisions and children's guardianship issues, gay-rights activists told lawmakers Monday. Gay marriage and civil unions already are illegal in Texas, but some private arrangements are recognized under Texas law. Republican Rep. Warren Chisum of Pampa has filed a proposed change to the constitution that would define marriage as "only a union of one man and one woman" in Texas. He said it wasn't his...

    <p>Washington, D.C.) All of the contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination support gay issues but former Vermont governor Howard Dean was the first to recognize the full clout of the gay vote and the economic power of the community. And, by seizing the moment he catapulted himself into the lead. Dean first began to realize the strength of the largely untapped gay vote when the Vermont Supreme Court ordered the state to recognize same-sex relationships. Shepherding the Civil Union legislation through the legislature he began to sense a groundswell of LGBT support throughout the nation.</p>
