    While former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney claims he did everything possible to throttle homosexual marriage in his state – his campaign now saying he took “every conceivable step within the law to defend traditional marriage” – several constitutional experts say that just isn’t so. “What Romney did [was] he exercised illegal legislative authority,” Herb Titus said of the governor’s actions after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court released its opinion in the Goodridge case in 2003. “He was bound by what? There was no order. There wasn’t even any order to the Department of Public Health to do anything.” Titus, a...

    Washington, D.C. - The U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider reinstating a Wisconsin law that banned hormone treatments or sex-change surgeries for transgender prison inmates. The justices Monday rejected the state's appeal of a ruling that the 2006 Wisconsin law, by withholding treatments that prison doctors deem medically necessary, violated the Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishments. Three Wisconsin inmates who are male-to-female transsexuals filed suit after prison doctors, who had diagnosed them as having gender identity disorder, stopped providing hormone treatments because of the law. "Refusing to provide effective treatment for a serious medical condition serves no...

    Weeks after the hullabaloo over contraception coverage, religious freedom and the failed Blunt amendment died out, a new social issue has emerged in the Massachusetts Senate race. And it’s a familiar one. Last week in a Washington Blade interview, Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren urged President Obama to endorse federal gay marriage rights and to require federal contractors to adopt nondiscrimination policies. Warren wasn’t seeking to inject the issue into the race, campaign aides said. “She was asked a question and she answered it,” senior campaign adviser Doug Rubin told me. It was also by pure coincidence, Warren’s camp said, that...

That said, the main thing that bothers me about GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney — no, it's not his affiliation with Mormonism, although you should take a look at president and editor Stephen Stone's new e-book A Mormon Story: Authoritarianism Knows No Bounds (click here) — is his seemingly cozy relationship with the homosexual lobby, as evidenced in the book Mitt Romney's Deception: His Stealth Promotion of 'Gay Rights' and 'Gay Marriage' in Massachusetts, authored by pro-family activist Amy Contrada....

In one of his last homilies, Archbishop Oscar Romero, the martyred Archbishop of San Salvador, said: "A preaching that does not point out sin is not the preaching of the gospel. A preaching that makes sinners feel good so that they become entrenched in their sinful state, betrays the gospel's call.

Chambers, the therapist for one of Sandusky’s alleged victims, was contained in the internal Penn State files of a 1998 police investigation of the former coach for showering and bear hugging her client and another young boy in the school’s athletic locker room.

    The Church of England cannot sign up to a plan aimed at preventing the global Anglican Church from splitting up after half its 44 dioceses voted against it. The Archbishop of Canterbury backed the Anglican Covenant in a bid to ensure divisive issues - such as gay bishops - did not cause the Communion to split. A vote by the diocesan synod of Lincoln meant 22 dioceses had opposed the plan. The covenant had already been rejected by conservative global Church leaders, whom it was intended to placate. Outgoing Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams had said the covenant was about...

St. Olaf College is affiliated with the ELCA.

Governor Mitt Romney publicly re-stated his support for homosexual "rights" in America while campaigning in Iowa last month. This included his agreement with the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" in the military; he said he wouldn't reverse that. He does say that marriage itself should be one man and one woman — but that homosexual relationships should be recognized, respected, and supported. Romney discusses his views on "gay rights" with...

    Polygamy has had very little support in the U.S. since the Republican Party in 1854 declared it, along with slavery, one of the “twin relics of barbarism,” and Congress banned it in 1862. The Mormon church officially abandoned plural marriage in 1890. But when the California Supreme Court ruled in 2010 in favor of homosexual marriage, one dissenting justice warned that it would not be illogical to expect that support for polygamy soon would follow. In fact, a polygamous group in Utah just last month challenged a ban on the practice in court, and now a new WND/Wenzel Poll, conducted...

The Department of Justice and the Bureau of Prisons announced the new plan earlier this month. It's for employees who are willing to devote 20 percent of their workday to promoting lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender issues. The government said LGBT representatives will serve as members of each prison's affirmative action committee. Specifically, they'll "coordinate activities and programs designed to cultivate LGBT cultural awareness both within and outside the institution."

    Time for a thought experiment: Are straight people born that way? When I put the question to a number of sexology colleagues, they thought it a good question -- indeed, a hard question. To answer it, we have to start with a more fundamental question: What do we mean when we say someone is "straight"? At the most basic level, we seem to be imagining female bodies that are specifically sexually aroused by male bodies, and vice versa. Laboratory studies such as those conducted by Michael Bailey of Northwestern University and Meredith Chivers of Queens University suggest that, while such...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The city must pay nearly $900,000 after a failed effort to evict the Boy Scouts of America because of the group's ban on gays, a federal judge ruled Wednesday. The post-trial ruling is just the latest twist in a decade-long legal dispute over the Boy Scout oath, which requires members to be "morally straight." The two sides have sought a compromise that would let the local Boy Scouts chapter keep its rent-free, city-owned headquarters without violating the national Scout policy. However, a tentative deal struck since the city lost a court case last year has fallen apart....

    Same-sex marriages are not a human right, European judges have ruled. Their decision shreds the claim by ministers that gay marriage is a universal human right and that same-sex couples have a right to marry because their mutual commitment is just as strong as that of husbands and wives. The ruling was made by judges of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg following a case involving a lesbian couple in a civil partnership who complained the French courts would not allow them to adopt a child as a couple.

Prosecutors said one of the protesters repeatedly called the woman a "dyke bitch" as another grabbed her wallet, while defense attorneys said the alleged victim had been the aggressor - and had herself used racial slurs.Judge Paul Delucchi said there was probable cause to hold each of the defendants: Michael Davis, 32, Nneka...

    'Up to 11 boys were castrated while in the care of the Dutch Roman Catholic church in the 1950s to rid them of homosexuality, a newspaper investigation has said. A young man was castrated in 1956 after telling police he was being abused by priests, the newspaper reported. The justice minister is investigating the role of the government at the time. Last year, an inquiry found thousands of children had been sexually abused in Dutch Catholic institutions since 1945. Dutch MPs called for an inquiry after the report was published in the NRC Handelsblad newspaper at the weekend.'
  • Congress to Mandate Pro-Homosexual Education?

    Dear Pro-family American, The Radical Homosexuals infiltrating the United States Congress have a plan: Indoctrinate an entire generation of American children with pro-homosexual propaganda and eliminate traditional values from American society. Their ultimate dream is to create a new America based on sexual promiscuity in which the values you and I cherish are long forgotten. I hate to admit it, but if they pass the deceptively named "Student Non-Discrimination Act," (H.R. 998 & S. 555) that's exactly what they'll do. Better named the "Homosexual Classrooms Act," its chief advocate in Congress is Rep. Jared Polis, himself an open homosexual and...

    At least 10 teenage boys or young men under the age of 21 were surgically castrated "to get rid of homosexuality" while in the care of the Dutch Roman Catholic Church in the 1950s. Evidence of the castrations has emerged amid controversy that it was not included in the findings of an official investigation into sexual abuse within the church last year.>>>More →

    The grandson of two-time Golden Globe winning actor Omar Sharif "hesitantly confessed" in an article published Sunday that he is gay and half Jewish, and worried about being welcome in Egypt. Omar Sharif Jr. wrote in The Advocate, "I write this article in fear. Fear for my country, fear for my family, and fear for myself. My parents will be shocked to read it, surely preferring I stay in the shadows and keep silent, at least for the time being. But I can't." Sharif expressed his disappointment at the recent parliamentary elections, writing that the revolution gave him hope for...

    David Cameron’s plan to legalise gay marriage is “unnecessary and unhelpful”, the country’s largest Muslim organisation has said. The leader of Britain’s Sikh community also attacked the proposal to extend the definition of marriage to same-sex couples, describing it as an “assault on religion”. Senior Roman Catholic and Anglican bishops have already warned that the move will undermine social structures dating back thousands of years. Mr Cameron is facing a backlash from his own supporters, with senior Tory MPs, including several ministers, expected to vote against the reforms.

    Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police seized 49 gays during a raid on a rest house where they were staging a party, the local press said on Sunday. Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice stormed the rest house after receiving information about an “indecent” event taking place near a wedding hall in the western town of Taif. Police raided the rest house at 4.00 am and arrested the 49, who included six Yemenis and Sudanese, as well as Saudis. “They were caught dancing and hugging each other indecently and wearing obscene clothes,” the Arabic...
  • I made the list, but I can’t say I’m happy about it

    When I was going through Watergate, my life was threatened repeatedly. And in the early years of my ministry with Prison Fellowship, the authorities had to monitor various individuals who had made threats against me. So I am no stranger to hit lists and threats. But, it seems like I’ve made another list — and frankly, I’m surprised, though, as I’ll explain, I guess I shouldn’t be. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, with the misleading acronym GLAAD, has placed 36 commentators, yours truly among them, on its Commentator Accountability Project list. GLAAD’s press release goes on to say...

    Ann Michelle Tesluk, a lesbian whose children attend a Catholic school, is demanding that the school, which is located in Peterborough, Ontario, remove a Catechism quote from a pamphlet because it refers to the homosexual inclination as "objectively disordered." See here. I wrote a series of posts after the Archdiocese of Boston announced a new policy which says that Catholic schools can partner with homosexual parents. I reminded His Eminence Sean Cardinal O'Malley that, in its Declaration on Christian Education (Gravissimum Educationis), No. 3, the Vatican II Fathers explained that parents "must be recognized as the primary and principal educators"...
  • Gay Marriage: This is a Battle the Churches Will Lose – and it Will be a Messy Business

    Dr Rowan Williams is getting out in the nick of time. Let’s be clear about this: the Churches will lose their fight against gay marriage becoming part of the law of the land – and it’ll be a messy business. This week various bishops have pointed out, quite correctly, that giving heterosexual and same-sex marriages the same legal status means redefining a concept that lies at the heart of religious life. Admittedly, there’s a clause in the Coalition’s “consultation” that bans gay church weddings, but that doesn’t represent any sort of solution. Take the case of the Church of England....

But what right does AllOut, a US-based homosexualist group, have to press Brazil to copy homosexualist legislations from the US and Europe? Months ago, AllOut, which brags of having about 900,000 backers, launched a campaign to press PayPal to shut down my account. The campaign was successful, leading PayPal to close my account — showing that...
  • Indiana cancels three specialty plates, including gay youth group's

    INDIANAPOLIS — After 20 state senators complained about a pro-gay rights group’s specialty license plate, the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles has canceled that plate and two others. The Indiana Youth Group’s plate is out, officials there said Friday. So is the Indiana 4-H Foundation’s plate and the Greenways Foundation’s plate. The reason: They violated the contract organizations that offer specialty plates sign with the state by selling low-numbered plates to the highest bidders. Indiana’s specialty plates program is a fundraising tool for nonprofits. It allows Hoosier motorists to pay $40 for plates — $15 of which goes to the...
