    On the heels of Chick-fil-A's president speaking out against gay marriage, a Denver-area cake shop has taken the stance a step further. Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood has refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple's wedding, sparking an outrage among the area's gay community, who have called for a boycott against the bakery. Owner Jack Phillips told sister station KCNC that he has no animosity towards the gay community, and is simply refusing because he doesn't support gay marriage. "If gays come in and want to order birthday cakes or any cakes for any occasion, graduations...

    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...

    First Amendment: The politically incorrect personal beliefs of a food-chain owner provides politicians nationwide an opportunity to rail against nonexistent discrimination. Want fries with that righteous indignation? Chicago Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno announced this week that he will block Chick-fil-A's effort to build a store in his trendy ward after hearing that Chick-fil-A's president, Dan Cathy, had stated in an interview that he believed in marriage as between one man and one woman. Cathy was quoted July 16 in the Baptist Press saying he was "guilty as charged" for supporting "the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a...

    Mayor Thomas M. Menino withdrew his threat to ban Chick-fil-A from Boston over the chicken chain president’s anti-gay marriage stance — but the Hub Democrat remained in the crosshairs of national conservatives, including former GOP presidential hopefuls Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee. “When I heard of the vicious hate speech and economic bullying being directed toward the (CEO Dan) Cathy family and their Chick-fil-A company, it was stunning. In the name of ‘tolerance’ a group was exercising extreme intolerance and trying to censor a citizen by threatening their business,” Huckabee told the Herald last night...

    Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe told The Daily Caller he believes President Barack Obama pressured the military into granting an unprecedented exception to rules that prohibit participation in political activities while in uniform. The Defense Department authorized a waiver to allow uniformed service members to march in last weekend’s San Diego gay pride parade, overriding a Defense Department directive‘s specific rules against uniformed service members’ participation in political events.

    At what point did being right and normal become “controversial”? Oh, we know the cultural tectonic shift from traditional moral values to chaotic debauchery began in earnest in the 1960s, and we have seen our society gradually and steadily slide into moral decay since then. Those of us who stand for biblical values and principles have allowed the public conversation about truth to be hijacked by the radical Left, although that hijacking has been subtle and creeping. Therefore we now have a media storm of “controversy” when a prominent businessman makes a commonplace statement about his belief in traditional family...

To STAND with the Boy Scouts, sign your petition here Two national BSA board members are pressuring the organization to abandon its morally sound membership policy which bars open homosexuals from holding leadership positions.   Groups and advocates who promote “tolerance” have also collected over 300,000 online petitions” — aided by liberal media publicity — to force the Scouts to accept unnatural vice in their ranks.

    The NCAA will fine Penn State at least $30 million and perhaps as much as $60 million for its involvement in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, industry sources told CBSSports.com's Brett McMurphy. The record fine will go toward an endowment for children's causes, sources said. "This is a fine like no fine before," an industry source told CBSSports.com. CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd has reported Penn State will face "significant penalties that could severely damage the football program's ability to compete" when the NCAA announces sanctions against the football program at a 9 a.m. news conference Monday. To put the fine in perspective,...

    Since at least the 1964 election, the agenda-driven media in this country has aggressively promoted the Left’s favored candidates in every election while strategically targeting conservatives for destruction. A copy of the Alinsky Rules for Radicals sits in every newsroom in the country, where “journalists” employ Alinsky Methods to polarize, ostracize, ridicule, and impugn Republicans at every available opportunity. In the zeal to destroy conservative politicians, the agenda-drive media quite often reports rumors and innuendo as concrete fact. Leftist websites like Politico.com rush to be first! in reporting Republican scandals, never much worrying about being “right”. A real double-standard’s in...

    Citing an anti-“same sex marriage” stance by its corporate ownership, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has vowed to block Chick-fil-A restaurants in Beantown, the Boston Herald reported Thursday. “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion,” the Herald quoted the mayor. “It doesn’t send the right message to the country. We’re a leader when it comes to social justice and opportunities for all.” That would be for all except those who disagree with the mayor’s political...

    July 19, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Elton John said in an interview this week that it will be “heartbreaking” for his son to grow up without a mom. Elton and his homosexual partner David Furnish got ‘married’ in 2005, and, after trying unsuccessfully to adopt a child in Ukraine, arranged for a boy child, Zachary, to be born to a surrogate mother in 2010. John admitted to Matt Lauer on NBC Today, “It’s going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn’t got a mummy.” John said he is also worried about when Zachary goes to...

Maciej Zieba, the director of Krakow’s Tertio Millennio Institute, told CNA July 17. “In my opinion, it would be much better if Google with the same zeal will concentrate on violations of human rights...

    Talk about modern family. In a move that's stirring opposition from conservative groups, California lawmakers are considering whether to change the legal definition of family by allowing a child to technically have more than two parents. The proposal, by Democratic state Sen. Mark Leno of San Francisco, would allow for children to benefit from multiple sources of child support, advocates argue, and would legally recognize those families that do not represent traditional parent structure. Proponents say the measure does not change the definition of who qualifies as a parent under current California law -- it only amends the two-parent limit....

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Canadian amateur astronomer who discovered several asteroids has named one after gay rights pioneer Frank Kameny who died last year in Washington. Kameny was a U.S. government astronomer in the 1950s who was fired from his job for being gay. He contested the firing all the way to the Supreme Court and organized the first gay rights protests outside the White House in the 1960s.

William Owens, president of the Memphis-based coalition, said on Friday. The Coalition of African-American Pastors had requested a meeting last month with the administration to discuss the issue, but says it was snubbed by Obama and Attorney General...

    John Roberts didn’t defer to Congress in the ObamaCare case; he just re-wrote the law... This isn’t judicial minimalism; it’s judicial meddling. There is a good reason why not even most liberal commentators are applauding the actual legal reasoning Chief Justice John Roberts used to avoid striking down the ObamaCare law: The “reasoning” is thinner than unleavened bread, and crumbles to dust not just upon gentle handling, but merely under the weight of a piercing gaze. Let us count the inanities, inconsistencies and constitutional/statutory infirmities of the key section of Roberts’ decision, which ruled that the ObamaCare mandate-and-penalty is a...
