    Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, etc. Let’s try an experiment, shall we? Let’s say it’s four years ago, and a Republican nominee for president makes a broad, sweeping statement about Democrat voters - saying they are dependent on government largese and this is the reason it’s so difficult to get them to vote Republican. The statement is secretly recorded and released to the public. What happens? Well, we don’t have to speculate because this isn’t imaginary. It really happened, and Mitt Romney’s well-documented (and also totally accurate) comment about the 47 percent of voters who depend on government was used...

    Struggling to shake Donald Trump in the polls, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton turned her sights instead on her GOP rival’s supporters, who she accused of a litany of offenses against society during a rally Friday evening. “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton told the crowd. “Right?

    On August 2, Pope Francis said a few words about gender identity—words that are not at all new with him. In a meeting with bishops that day, he observed: "In Europe, America, Latin America, Africa, and in some countries of Asia, there are genuine forms of ideological colonization taking place. And one of these—I will call it clearly by its name—is [the ideology of] “gender.” [It is, in fact, an artificial construct, as is evident by the co-opting of a word that, in its normative meaning, refers to grammar.] Today children—children!—are taught in school that everyone can choose his or...

    What Christians Should Do in the Wake of Orlando (in response to what the Left says we must do). Time magazine was quick to employ a homosexual Christian — a contradiction in terms — to tell us "What Christians Must Do in the Wake of Orlando" (, and true to form, it was quick to blame Christians for causing "deep, lasting pain in LGBT people’s lives," even asserting that "Unless you’ve long been a vocal advocate for LGBT people, you’ve likely contributed to that suffering—intentionally or not." (In contrast "gay clubs" were described as providing "a unique place of refuge,...

    Homophobic Everyone knew that the Supremes’ obscene gay marriage decree would lead to churches being sued for not betraying their faith with sacrilegious parodies of wedding ceremonies. But this enterprising homofascist decided to cut to the chase and go right after the Bible: A homosexual man has filed a $70 million lawsuit against Bible publishers Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, alleging that their version of the Bible that refers to homosexuality as a sin violates his constitutional rights and has caused him emotional distress. According to the Christian Post, ex-con turned author Bradley LaShawn Fowler filed the federal suit in the...

    A French court has handed out convictions for anti-gay hate crimes on Twitter for the first time, after three people used the hashtag “let’s burn the gays”. In what a major French LGBT rights group called a “significant victory”, three people were convicted in a Paris court this week after they accompanied tweets with hashtags including “let’s burn the gays on…“ or "#brûlonslesgayssurdu).” During the same period in August 2013, “#Lesgaysdoiventdisparaîtrecar”, or “gays must die because…”, was also trending. French LGBT charity Comité Idaho, which organises the nation’s International Day Against Homophobia, brought the case to court after it filed...

    As told to Joe Hagan. I flew to Hawaii recently to shoot a film, fresh on the heels of being labeled a homophobic bigot by Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice. I wanted to speak with a gay-rights group that I had researched and admired, so I called its local Honolulu branch. The office number turned out to be some guy’s cell phone. I left him a message—I said, “I’m from out of town, I’m visiting Hawaii on business, I’d like to get some information on your group.” After two or three more calls,...

    The Florida jury which acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin believed the 17-year-old initiated the violent confrontation against the neighborhood watchman, and perhaps his underlying reason was a homophobic assumption that Zimmerman was a sexual predator. Last night in an interview on CNN prosecution witness Rachel Jeantel said the following to Piers Morgan: "People need to understand, he didn't want that creepy ass cracka going to his father or girlfriend's house to go get -- mind you, his little brother is there. Mind you I told you, I told Trayvon, [Zimmerman] might have been a rapist."...

"He is rigid and a homophobic. He believes that gays and lesbians, he mentioned in an interview in 2003, about bestiality, and gays and lesbians. I think that's disgusting," said Simpson.

As anybody who follows Penn State knows, Portland doesn't tolerate lesbians in her program. It's a selling point in her recruiting.

    Richard Davis grew up in the black Pentecostal church in the 1960s and '70s that preached homosexuals were doomed not only to eternal damnation but a hotter place in hell than where other sinners might go. Old Testament scripture quoted from the pulpit fostered within Davis a homophobia. By the time Davis was ordained as a Baptist minister in 1982, the overt condemnation of gays in the black church had been tempered into an unspoken acknowledgement that some members of the congregation, and the clergy, might be homosexual. But as long as they did not acknowledge their sexual orientation, they...

    Farewell to the Tea Party. It was fun while it lasted. It certainly got a lot of undue media attention. But it died a premature, yet welcome, death. Ironically, what killed the Tea Party was not opposition from either the Republican or Democratic Party. The Tea Party committed suicide, rendered irrelevant by a succession of current events. The central premise of Tea Party loyalists, after all, was that they were anti-government. You know the drill: All government is bad. Taxes are bad. Government bureaucrats are bad. Then, unfortunately for them, just as they were gaining traction, tea baggers ran into...

Because the Boy Scouts prudently want to keep openly homosexual Scout leaders away from young boys, they are judged "intolerant".

    Those who see no apparent harm in legalizing same-sex marriage in the United States should not be heartened by Tuesday's ruling in Massachusetts, where the state Supreme Court ruled in favor of seven homosexual couples seeking to overturn the traditional definition of marriage. If, through the application of the full faith and credit clause, Arizona and other states are forced to legalize homosexual marriage, the results will be predictable. That's because social science research has already given us an accurate view of homosexual relationships and the instability of those involved, including children. We know that homosexual relationships last, on average,...
