  • Poll Shows Opposition Easing Toward Gay Marriage, Abortion, Legal Pot

    As the abortion and gay marriage debates simmer beneath the national brawl over spending, a new poll shows Americans are becoming much less conservative when it comes to social issues. A Pew Research Center poll released Thursday showed growing support for legal abortion, gay marriage and marijuana legalization. The shifting attitudes on the latter topic were particularly dramatic. Americans opposed legalizing marijuana by an 81-16 split two decades ago. The latest poll showed just 50 percent now oppose the change, while 45 percent support legalizing marijuana. On the abortion question, the survey showed Americans trending toward supporting abortion rights after...

    Until very recently, I was a big Sarah Palin supporter. I don't mean she was my first or second choice to be president. But I really liked the gal. I thought she was a straight shooter. I liked her style. I didn't think she pulled any punches. While sometimes lacking crystal clarity on the issues, she had the right instincts, I thought. But now I wonder. What prompted this change of heart? Some recent comments suggest she really doesn't comprehend how close we are to losing the culture war for the hearts and minds of Americans, particularly on the issue...

    Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy says the company is dropping its support for anti-gay marriage groups. The announcement comes after gay website blogged about the chicken restaurant's sponsorship of a marriage seminar closely associated with the anti-gay marriage group Pennsylvania Family Institute. In a two-minute-twenty-seven-second video message released nearly three weeks ago, Cathy denied that the company's donation was an endorsement of its values. “Let me be clear, Chick-Fil-A serves all people and values all people,” Cathy said. “Providing food to these events, or any event, is not an endorsement of the mission, political stance or motives of this or...

    Daily Mail columnist Melanie Phillips has defended an article which suggested that gay people were becoming the “new McCarthyites”. Her column, published yesterday, implied that homosexuality would become “mandatory” and accused gay activists of trying to “brainwash” children. The article was written in response to plans to make lessons more inclusive of LGBT people and became a trending topic on Twitter. Ms Phillips told that she would always defend gay people against “true prejudice” but maintained that the gay rights lobby intends to destroy “normal sexual behaviour”. In an email, she wrote: “I’m sorry if what I wrote has...

    Devout Christian hotel owners who refused to allow a gay couple to share a double room acted unlawfully, a judge at Bristol county court ruled today. Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy, who are civil partners, won their landmark claim for discrimination in a case funded and supported by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The ruling, one of the first made under the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007, is likely to provide those in partnerships with greater protection from discrimination. The owners of the Chymorvah private hotel in Cornwall, Peter and Hazel Bull, do not allow couples who...

    The colorful attention-grabbing billboards of gay black men in a church and on the basketball court are creating a firestorm of controversy on an issue that continues to drive a wedge in segments of the African-American community. City Councilman Joseph Allen said Friday that he came in for both scorn and support after publicly expressing his displeasure this week that the billboards send the wrong message to impressionable youngsters, particularly those being raised by single mothers who may not have positive male role models. "This kind of billboard is putting the stamp of approval on a gay lifestyle," said Allen,...

Rather amazing they made themselves available. Convening on that bitterly cold morning of Dec. 22 was...

    The repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is a DISGRACE that cannot stand! The Left hoped that by defining homosexuality as an orientation that cannot be changed, rather than a chosen behavior as has been recognized for millenia, they could exploit the goodwill of the civil rights struggle. Civil rights, like feminism, is a positive philosophy when promulgated by persons of integrity with no hidden agendas. However, those of us who were around in those times, or who study real history, know there were many communists and America-haters therein marching with genuine people of good will. It is not the...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Saturday that the failed Democratic effort to pass the DREAM Act in the lame duck session dealt a blow to future talks on a wider immigration bill. “It was an exercise to try and taint Republicans with Hispanic voters, knowing that the DREAM Act under these circumstances could never pass,” Graham told reporters in the Capitol after the bill sputtered on the floor. “What they have done on the DREAM Act is hurt overall comprehensive immigration reform,” he said. The DREAM Act, which would give legal status to illegal immigrants who came to the country...

    Gay Rights: The purpose of our military is to kill people and break things when necessary. It's not a tool for social engineering. Wartime is not the time to repeal "don't ask, don't tell." Repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy begun under President Clinton in 1993 is neither a legislative nor a military priority while we are engaged militarily in Iraq and Afghanistan and knee-deep in a jobless recovery where the issues of national debt and tax cuts should be paramount. Yet liberals drowning in political correctness consider it a priority, as does Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who...

    The White House attack on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce isn't about "disclosure." It's about disarmament. While posing as campaign finance champions, the ultimate goal of the Democratic offensive is to intimidate conservative donors, chill political free speech and drain Republican coffers. Chamber of Commerce official Bruce Josten tried to educate the public. "(W)e know what the purpose here is," he told ABC News. "It's to harass and intimidate." Josten cited protests and threats against chamber members as retribution for ads the organization ran opposing the federal health care takeover. But this isn't the first time liberal bullyboys have targeted...

    Iowa for Freedom (founded by former governor candidate, Bob Vander Plaats) wants Iowans to vote no on the retention of three Supreme Court Justices who voted in Varnum v Brien to strike down Iowa’s version of the Defensive of Marriage Act. They are Marsha Ternus, Michael Streit, and David A Baker. Governor Chet Culver then ordered marriage licenses issued to same sex couples, just like Mitt Romney of Massachusetts did after a similar ruling in his state. Neither had the courage to stand against the overreaching actions of courts. This will likely end up at the United States Supreme Court...

Key points of information are being ignored in the mad rush to point to anti-gay bullying and to the school's alleged failure to address it.

Monday after the retailer ended talks related to its $150,000 donation to a group backing Republican Tom Emmer for governor. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), based in Washington, D.C., said after "two weeks of good-faith discussions, and two tentative agreements," Target decided not to contribute to groups supporting gay-rights candidates in Minnesota, as the HRC had sought. "All fair-minded Americans will now rightly question Target's commitment to equality," said HRC president Joe Solmonese in a statement.

    CNN has an interesting roundtable on the case of Jennifer Keeton, who has sued Augusta State University to keep from getting expelled for not repudiating her statements about homosexuality. Keeton expressed her biblical perspective on the subject in and out of class while working toward a degree in counseling, and the school mandated a “remediation plan” that appears to have required her to renounce her Christian doctrine in order to gain a diploma from the school. The school has responded that a bias against homosexuality would disqualify Keeton from certification, a position that would put most Christians in Keeton’s position.Does...

    Before he joined Democratic Rep. Barney Frank in calling for almost $1 trillion in cuts to the national defense budget, Ron Paul was one of only five Republicans in the House of Representatives voting to force open and active homosexuals into the military forces. It was another indication that President Obama’s radical “progressive” agenda is moving forward, this time with the support of America’s leading libertarian Republican. Paul won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington this year. In addition to gays in the military, the agenda includes sanctioning gay marriage across the land, forcing...

Proponents of "gay" rights have said many times what others do in their bedroom doesn't affect anyone else and is no one's business.

Last week, Argentina became the first country in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage, and to provide gay couples with all the benefits pertaining thereto. The new law, passed by the Argentine legislature in a close vote, was supported and encouraged by President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.

In "controversial" remarks, Sorba said homosexuality was unnatural and that he welcomed more debate and discussion about the subject from his political adversaries. But what many people don't realize is that Sorba's "outburst" was provoked by a speaker who preceded him, Alexander McCobin of Students For Liberty (SFL).

Harry Hay, who "inspired" Obama-appointed Education Department official Kevin Jennings to lead a life of homosexual activism, was not only a supporter of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) but a prominent member of the Communist Party USA and "Radical Faerie" who believed in the power of the occult. Hay's influence is relevant not only because Jennings is a top Education Department official, but because...

By a 38-to-24 vote, lawmakers chose to continue the state’s discrimination against couples who want to get married and simply happen to be the same sex. Like Gov.

On this day, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, was born. As was Sir Laurence Oliver, arguably the world’s greatest artist. Richard Wagner, the great composer, was born on May 22 but his music will not be played for the students in commemoration of his works. Nor will Tommy Franks, the Yankee pitcher, be honored on this day, let alone St. Rita of Cascia, the patron of desperate causes....

    A major new report confirms the worst fears of many: Health care reform will raise the costs for most Americans—by about 18% on average. That is on top of existing inflation of health coverage. Once the plan is fully phased-in (by 2019), a typical family of four would pay an extra $4,000 each year. When combined with existing inflation, costs would rise from today’s $12,300 annual average to $25,900. Of that 111% increase, $9,600 is due to existing factors uncorrected by the legislation, and $4,000 due to additional costs created by the legislation. For single persons, the differential is projected...

    Unto the Breach ^ | 12 Oct 2009 | Chris Carter
    Just when you thought things couldn't possibly get any worse (from The Times)... The Obama administration is considering outbidding the Taliban to persuade Afghan villagers to lay down arms as it struggles to find a new approach to a war that is fast losing public and congressional support. Didn't we send troops to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban? Now the Obama administration is wanting to legitimize yet another terrorist group: Apart from training more Afghan troops, the focus has shifted to accepting a political role for the Taliban, while also trying to weaken them by winning some over. Once again,...

    I've always believed in the existence of monsters. During my 20 years as a cop in NYC, I met quite a few of them, many of whom may still be doing time in prisons around the country. However, they were the garden-variety type of monsters; murderers, rapists, armed robbers and other assorted thugs. But there's another, even lower, level of criminal that exists in communities all across America, even in some of our churches. The creature I'm referring to is the pedophile. A few years ago, I received a 6-page letter in the mail from a woman in East Cambridge,...

    This sounds safe... Obama's Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings wrote that killing someone who called you a name was not aberrant behavior. Oh really? Verum Serum discovered this article by Obama's Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings in 1998: We need to own up to the fact that our culture teaches boys that being “a man” is the most important thing in life, even if you have to kill someone to prove it. Killing someone who calls you a faggot is not aberrant behavior but merely the most extreme expression of a belief that is beaten (sometimes literally) into boys at...

    WASHINGTON — Thousands of gay rights supporters marched Sunday from the White House to the Capitol, demanding that President Barack Obama keep his promises to allow gays to serve openly in the military and work to end discrimination against gays. Rainbow flags and homemade signs dotted the crowds filling Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House as people chanted "Hey, Obama, let mama marry mama" and "We're out, we're proud, we won't back down." Many children were also among the protesters. A few counter-protesters had also joined the crowd, which stretched several blocks by the afternoon. Jason Yanowitz, a...

    Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) is ready to re-start a debate over domestic benefits to gay federal employees and their spouses. Lieberman told The Hill he hopes to push a bill onto the Senate floor by the end of the year that would grant the same benefits to gay federal employees and their spouses as given any married federal employee and their spouse. Benefits include federal health insurance, enhanced dental and vision care, retirement and disability provisions and life insurance and benefits in cases of death or disability. Members of the military would be excluded. Lieberman said he expects to hold...

    Talk about Cheating. John Boehner announced today that after the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee passed their version of the Obamacare bill, the the Democrats added 70 substantive amendments to the bill without voting on it, and without telling the minority members. WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today expressed outrage after learning that Senate Democratic leaders quietly made more than 70 substantive changes to the text of a health care bill after the legislation was voted on and passed by the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee. The changes were made without...

    Two days ago, British newspaper The Independent reported that a secret cabal of oil-producing Arab states, Russia, and China had conspired to dump the dollar for oil trading, a move which would have seriously weakened our currency and influence abroad. Many publications picked up on this report, written by the notoriously unreliable Robert Fisk, and a round of denials promptly appeared from the named states. Left unexplained by Fisk and the Independent was how these same states, with massive holdings in the dollar (especially China), would benefit in the short or long term by attacking it. However, it once again...

    ACORN wants people to register to vote – as long as they’re Democrats. Republican registrations go into the trash. Here is a first-hand account of how it happens. In February 2008, Fathiyyah Muhammad of Jacksonville, Florida, heard that ACORN was paying people three dollars for each voter they could register. ACORN paid her three dollars for each voter she registered, but Fatiyyah Muhammad says that the group threw out her votes and fired her when she brought them registrations of Republican voters. Fathiyyah Muhammad voted for Obama. “I’m a Republican,” she says, “and this was the first time that I...
