  • Have Gay Marriage Attacks on Religious Freedom Backfired?

    FrontPage Mag ^ | 09/23/2014 | Daniel Greenfield
    The latest Pew survey for the first time sees a major reversal of support for gay marriage and an increase in religious politics. A growing share of the American public wants religion to play a role in U.S. politics. The share of Americans who say churches and other houses of worship should express their views on social and political issues is up 6 points since the 2010 midterm elections (from 43% to 49%). That’s an interesting shift at a time when we’ve been incessantly lectured by libertarians that social conservatism is dead and the Republican Party needs to climb on...

    Amnesty International says a draft anti-gay bill in Chad represents a backward step for human rights in the country. The rights group said Tuesday that amendments to the penal code proposed by the government would criminalize same-sex conduct in Chad, threatening jail sentences of between 15 and 20 years, and a fine ranging from $100 and $1,000.

    Editor’s Note: The following address by German author and social commentator Gabriele Kuby was delivered earlier this month in Moscow at the International Forum on Large Families and the Future of Humanity. We are witnessing an astonishing historical shift. More than a hundred years ago, Marxism declared the relationship of man and woman in monogamous marriage as “the first class antagonism” in history. This “class-conflict” had to be overcome by destroying marriage and the family. So in 1917, Alexandra Kollontai, the first woman commissar of the Bolshevik Central Committee, set out to put this into practise through the exercise of...

    Justice Elena Kagan has officiated for the first time at a same-sex wedding, a Maryland ceremony for her former law clerk and his husband. Kagan presided on Sunday over the wedding of former clerk Mitchell Reich and Patrick Pearsall in the Washington suburb of Chevy Chase, Maryland. Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Monday that the same-sex ceremony was the first at which Kagan officiated. Retired Justice Sandra Day OConnor and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg have previously officiated at the wedding of gay and lesbian couples, including at the Supreme Court. Ginsburg most recently performed the wedding of Washington theater...

    The jockeying among the titans of the Supreme Court bar for a place at the lectern when the justices hear the next same-sex marriage case is as understated as it is unmistakable. In a half-dozen briefs filed in recent weeks, some of the best lawyers in the nation spent many pages arguing that their case was the right one in which to establish a nationwide right to same-sex marriage. They pointed out the attractive features of their own cases and the shortcomings of others. In legal jargon, streamlined cases without procedural pitfalls are said to be good vehicles. That made...

    but pedophiles can now flourish in this liberal cesspool. State does not require prison for people guilty of creating child porn By Jordan Steffen The Denver Post On the computers in his Aurora apartment, Timothy Robinson collected thousands of images and videos of children being raped and assaulted.

Half (49%) say that wedding-related businesses should be required to provide services to same-sex couples just as they would to all other customers, while 47% say that these businesses should be allowed to refuse services to same-sex couples for religious reasons.

Nero, a depraved first-century emperor, married at least two men. He wed Pythagoras in a formal same-sex wedding by first putting on a bridal veil that made Nero the "bride" and Pythagoras the "groom." Every symbol of a classical marriage was present at this ceremony: a dowry, marriage bed, torches, and witnesses. Tacitus, the great Roman...

    Yet another megachurch has announced that it will spend millions to officially separate itself from Presbyterian Church (USA), a denomination that has, in recent years, experienced turmoil over what critics decry as an increasingly liberal theology. Nearly 89 percent of the congregation at Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas, voted in October 2013 to leave the denomination and to join the more theologically conservative Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians a decision that carries with it a hefty price tag. The church will need to pay $7.8 million in order to officially leave Presbyterian Church (USA) and keep its...

    March may be a bit far off, but a St. Patrick's Day brawl has come early. No one seems happy by the recent decision to include OUT@NBCUniversal, an LGBT activist group to participate in New York's St. Patrick's Day parade. For the sake of clarity: St. Patrick is the patron saint of the archdiocese of New York, and though Catholics have always been a big part of the parade, the parade is not run by the Church. And while the NBC group's position on LGBT issues does not gibe with Catholic teaching, it's somewhat consistent with the parade's history to...

    One of the things we predicted when the infamous crime against nature was dropped as a bar to military service was an inevitable descent into moral and sexual debauchery in our armed forces. And we were right. Homosexual conduct is immoral, unnatural and unhealthy. There are a host of pathologies associated with male homosexual conduct, including random, promiscuous, anonymous sex, a highly elevated risk of HIV/AIDS and a proclivity toward sexual violence. This is not a lifestyle any rational society, let alone its military, should embrace or support. Now we are getting more information about just how twisted and dangerous...

    An anti-gay billboard is stirring a debate over bullying and religion in a rural community about 30 miles north of Nashville. The Tennessean reports that the message reads: "You shall not lie with a man as with a woman. It is an abomination. God." The sign says it was "paid for by concerned Christians." Portland resident Ronny Monday, who helped initiate the placement of the $500-per-month billboard, said the Old Testament message was needed to balance against the message from celebrities and President Barack Obama supporting gay marriage.

Acts of fornication (pre-marital sex) and homosexual acts cannot be considered acceptable by any Catholic, or any person who sincerely accepts the Scripture as the Word of God.

    Eighty legislators from Utah have submitted an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in which the legislators warn the Court that legalizing same-sex marriage would lead to the legalization of incestuous and polygamous marriages. The brief comes following the request for a writ of certiorari from both Utah's Attorney General, Sean Reyes, and the plaintiffs in Kitchen v. Herbert, the case that found both both a district court and the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in favor of marriage equality in Utah. As Joe.My.God points out, "the brief is signed by 22 of the 29 members of the state...

    A Muslim academic is vowing to push ahead with the launch of his woman and gay-friendly mosque in South Africa, despite receiving death threats. Taj Hargey, director of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford, a group of "forward thinking" Muslims, said his Open Mosque will welcome all genders, religions and sexual orientations when it opens in Wynberg, a Cape Town suburb, on Friday. "You enter the mosque, do I ask you the question who did you sleep with last night? No. It's not my business who you slept with," said Mr Hargey, a native of Cape Town. "Women will enter...

    Once upon a time, there was a red crayon that could only draw blue: blue fire engines, blue strawberries, blue heartsall things we know to be red he could only draw in blue. No matter how hard the crayon tried, no matter how critical the remarks of others, the crayon couldn't behave in accordance with the label on his side. "He was red, but he wasn't very good at it," Michael Hall explains in "Red: A Crayon's Story," a forthcoming picture book that reads like a fable of gender identity. "I have a girl brain but a boy body," says...

    On ESPNs SportsCenter earlier this week, espnW columnist Kate Fagan argued that the big picture in the controversy surrounding former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rices domestic violence allegations. According Fagan, the problem needs to be tackled at the so-called grassroots level when men are in their formative years. Well, I think right now we're talking so much about firing Goodell or punishments. You know, should it be a three game, a two game, a six game, a full year ban? But I think that's a little reactive and not proactive. Domestic violence is something that happens in anger, in...

    The last person who thought Rosie ODonnell would ever return to The View was Rosie ODonnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal and went viral. The day it happened, I was definitely crying, ODonnell recalls. I got my stuff and walked out....

    A single mother, people who have been married before and couples who have been living together "in sin" were married by Pope Francis in a taboo-challenging ceremony at the Vatican on Sunday. In another signal of the openness of his papacy, Francis asked to marry 40 people from different social backgrounds who would be a realistic sample of modern couples. It comes three weeks before a major synod of the Catholic Church will discuss the divisive issues of marriage, divorce and conception.

    NATCHEZ, Miss. Just three months ago, Rob Hill was a Methodist pastor with a burning secret. But as a swampy heat took hold one recent morning, he put on a suit, climbed into his car and headed into this river town on a mission that would have been unthinkable not long ago: promoting gay rights in rural Mississippi. Its hardly the most audacious thing hes done this year. In July, after 12 years in the clergy, Hill came out of the closet not at an intimate gathering around his kitchen table, or to friends on Facebook, but at...

    In just four weeks, Missouri has carried out an execution, imposed a 72-hour waiting period on women seeking abortions, expanded gun rights and become the poster child for the militarization of police and racial discord. Its public school system is struggling beneath the weight of an ongoing funding crisis, and an entire local police force is under federal investigation. While the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown by a small-city cop and the fiery protests and heavy-handed police response that followed has drawn national attention and scorn, the incident is but a glimpse into the current social and political...
