    Tulsa police have arrested two women for first-degree murder after finding a dead 19-m0nth-old baby in a vehicle they occupied during a traffic stop. Court records show Mica Shoate, 22 and Jazmin Williams, 22, each face one complaint of first-degree murder in connection with the death of the child identified as Zemontay Green. Police say the other occupant of the vehicle in which the baby was found, Jazmin Williams, remains in custody but no information has been released about possible charges against her at this hour. Police tell KRMG an officer spotted a car driving erratically on South Lewis Avenue...

    Moscow, March 27, Interfax - The Russian Orthodox community is determined to prevent rallies by gay and lesbian activists in reaction to the adoption of a law in St. Petersburg banning "homosexual propaganda". "According to our sources, gay and lesbian activists plan to organize rallies near children's establishments in Moscow and St. Petersburg. We will offer robust resistance. It looks like they need more than gay clubs and propaganda in the media and on the Internet. They are targeting our children now," Yury Ageshchev, the coordinator of the Union of Orthodox Brotherhoods, told Interfax-Religion on Tuesday. "Russia differs from unbridled...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- The Obama administration asked a federal appeals court Monday to speed up its review of a San Francisco gay-rights case and consider tough scrutiny for laws that discriminate based on sexual orientation - a standard that could legalize same-sex marriage. The Justice Department made the unusual request to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, which is considering the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act, the 1996 law that denies federal benefits to same-sex spouses. U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White declared the law unconstitutional Feb. 22, calling it an irrational act of discrimination....

    Miss Universe Canada officials have banned 23-year-old transsexual Jenna Talackova from participating in the pageant finals to be held in Toronto in May, 2012. The Vancouver contestant was one of sixty-five women chosen to compete in the national contest (which is owned by Donald Trump). The Daily Mail Reports that Denis Davila, national director of Miss Universe Canada, asserts that every contestant must be a "naturally born female." Critics of the decision claim that the rules do not specifically address sex change or plastic surgery.

    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...

    Military service is mandatory for all Turkish men - they can only escape it if they are ill, disabled or homosexual. But proving homosexuality is a humiliating ordeal. ''They asked me when I first had anal intercourse, oral sex, what sort of toys I played with as a child..." Ahmet, a young man in his 20s, told officials he was gay at the first opportunity after he was called up, as he and other conscripts underwent a health check. "They asked me if I liked football, whether I wore woman's clothes or used woman's perfume," he says. ''I had a...

    I know, I know — no politician is perfect. Heck, none of us is perfect, obviously. Far from it. 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 RenewAmerica.com 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....

    Sunday, March 25, 2012Blog comment: "...you are making a lot of potentially very powerful people very, very angry." 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. A preaching that does not discomfit sinners but lulls them in their sin leaves Zebulun and Naphtali in the shadow of death. A preaching that awakens, a preaching that enlightens --...

    More than a decade before former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky was charged with more than 50 counts of child sex abuse, a psychologist warned university police that his actions fit that of a “likely pedophile’s pattern.” The finding by State College, Pa., psychologist Dr. Alycia A. 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.

    When Mitt Romney first entered the political scene in 1994, running for the U.S. Senate against Teddy Kennedy, he told an LGBT-focused publication in Massachusetts that he would be a more effective advocate for the interests of the “gay community” than Kennedy had been and that gays should support him because “the gay community needs more support from the Republican Party.” “Why should the gay community support your campaign when Ted Kennedy has been a strong supporter of civil rights issues and the gay community?” asked a reporter from Bay Windows. “Well, I think you're partially right in characterizing Ted...

    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...

    We really need to start a series called, “Are ELCA colleges Christian?” I say that because it seems to me, more and more, worldly values and morals are taking precedent within ELCA colleges. St. Olaf College is affiliated with the ELCA. On St. Olaf's official website we learn of an event called the “Wellness Olympics” and are told this, “Back by popular demand, the Wellness Center is hosting a team-based competition that tests students’ knowledge of sexual health, reproductive anatomy, and STI statistics. It all culminates in an intense relay race to properly put on a condom while wearing ‘beer...

    The Opera House in Seattle was the setting for Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz and the annual board meeting of his church of Starbucks. That's what it felt like -- what with the heart-stirring videos, the soulful songs of Grammy award-winning Esperanza Spalding, and a real Baptist preacher (Rev. Calvin Butts), not to mention free coffee and doughnuts. Jonathan Baker, head of the National Organization for Marriage's Corporate Fairness Project was there to ask if the board really approved the statement that gay marriage is "core to the Starbucks brand." Yes, Schultz said. Most of the room there applauded, but what...

    Calls from national media, state activists, and more POSTED: Jan. 8, 2012 Calls and emails have been coming in from across the country. As we've recently reported, former Mass. 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...
