    The news is stuffed with "studies" in which "experts" tell us how we should behave. One recently found that conservatives have lost their trust in science over the last 40 years. That's probably because the very political academics of science are routinely summoned to prove the right-wingers are not only wrong but dangerously wrong and not just dangerously wrong but evil, too. These studies are laughable. First, there was the study purporting to prove that conservatism appeals to low-intelligence racists "who have trouble grasping the complexity of the world." Then there was the scientific study that parents should be allowed...

    CBS Reports ^ | March 7, 1967 | Mike Wallace
    "The Homosexuals" is a 1967 episode of the documentary television series CBS Reports. The hour-long broadcast featured a discussion of a number of topics related to homosexuality and homosexuals. Mike Wallace anchored the episode, which aired on March 7, 1967. Although this was the first network documentary dealing with the topic of homosexuality, it was not the first televised in the United States. That was The Rejected, produced and aired in 1961 on KQED, a public television station out of San Francisco. Three years in the making, "The Homosexuals" went through two producers and multiple revisions. The episode included interviews...

    The death of the American feminist poet Adrienne Rich (pictured) this week has brought many accolades on account of her literary gifts and contribution to the feminist movement over the past 50 years. In her transformation from conventionally married mother of three sons in the 1950s, to lesbian partner and apologist in the 1970s, she became not only the voice but a living example of the revolutionary character of second wave feminism. Adrienne Rich The chief legacy of that movement has been brought into sharp focus in recent months by the battle royal between Catholic authorities (mainly) and the Obama...

    President Obama crashed "an LGBT fundraiser" today in Florida at a hotel where he is having his own fundraiser this evening. Obama "dropped by an LGBT fundraiser to participate in a photo line," according to the pool reporter. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) and "senior campaign officials" are meeting with about 50 LGBT supporters who paid $2,500-a-piece to hear about Obama's record on LGBT issues. Obama's unwillingness to support gay marriage explicitly has irritated his LGBT supporters, while the White House says that Obama's position is still "evolving."

Others are speaking out against the proposed amendment, charging that it is a ploy to divide the Democratic base and hurt President Obama’s chances for reelection. “Folks, it is a wedge issue that was put in place to divide our community,...

Los Angeles County Lifeguards alerted Manhattan Beach police to unusual activity taking place at a public bathroom located at Marine Avenue at The Beach, authorities said. “The same men were frequently using and returning to the location, and men were loitering in the area as well as inside the restroom for long periods of time,” Stephanie Martin of MBPD said. Lifeguards and maintenance staff also found graffiti that depicted “graphic sexual images as well as holes that were drilled in the...

    President Obama's Minnesota campaign waded into the state's marriage amendment fight on Monday with a statement saying the president opposes the proposal that would define marriage only as the union of a man and woman. Obama for America's Minnesota communications director, Kristin Sosanie, said in a news release that "while the President does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the record is clear that the President has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same-sex couples. That's what the Minnesota ballot initiative would do -- it would single out and...

    A day before Easter, the head of New York's Roman Catholic archdiocese faced a challenge to his stance on gay rights: the resignation of a church charity board member who says he's "had enough" of the cardinal's attitude. Joseph Amodeo told The Associated Press on Saturday that he quit the junior board of the city's Catholic Charities after Cardinal Timothy Dolan failed to respond to a "call for help" for homeless youths who are not heterosexual. "As someone who believes in the message of love enshrined in the teachings of Christ, I find it disheartening that a man of God...

    Voters in Anchorage, Alaska, overwhelmingly voted in favor of the natural family by rejecting Proposition 5, a measure that would have given special rights based on lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual behavior. Proposition 5 would have given special rights to sexual behavior and would have been used as a club to silence dissent of the faith community. Alaska voters sent a loud and clear statement to the rest of the country that forcing people to provide special privileges based on sexual behavior is unwise. The measure was put on the ballot and supported by a consortium of LGBT groups, called...

    Maryland's highest court is poised to hear arguments in a precedent-setting case involving two women who married in California but were denied a divorce in Maryland, which does not currently allow same-sex weddings. The Court of Appeals of Maryland in Annapolis was set to hear arguments Friday from lawyers for the lesbian couple who are seeking to end their marriage. A Maryland judge declined to grant their divorce in 2010, basing his decision on the conclusion that the women's marriage is not valid under Maryland law. But lawyers for the women disagree, saying the state should recognize gay marriages performed...

    You know about the complaint many African Americans have about gay men and lesbians equating — in any way — their shared struggle for equal rights with the civil rights movement. Well, going hand-in-hand with that is an annoyance with the seeming one-way nature of the gay appropriation. In other words, the gays want everyone to understand their plight, but they do nothing to lend their voice and support when the blacks could use it. That changed with the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. On Monday, 23 groups representing the varied concerns of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender...

    As Mitt Romney prepares for his second presidential campaign and gay marriage threatens to undermine America’s Judeo-Christian culture, there’s a raging debate about the role he played in instituting gay marriage in Massachusetts during his gubernatorial term. This is important because Governor Romney has positioned himself as a champion of traditional values and claims to have been an opponent of homosexual marriage his entire career. When the Massachusetts Supreme Court issued a decision in favor of homosexual marriage, — the Goodridge case — Romney unilaterally ordered his state agencies to implement homosexual marriage in Massachusetts. The court did not order...

    Russian lawmakers have submitted a bill that would impose fines for spreading gay "propaganda" among minors, setting up a tolerance test for the Kremlin-controlled parliament ahead of Vladimir Putin's inauguration as president. The bill echoes local laws whose adoption in cities including St. Petersburg has drawn an outcry from human rights and gay activists, who say they could be used to clamp down on the gay community. It would impose fines of up to 5,000 roubles ($170) on individuals and up to 500,000 roubles ($17,000) on companies for spreading "propaganda of homosexualism" among minors. Critics say that while ostensibly targeting...

    Every since Mitt Romney first tossed his hat into the presidential sweepstakes in 2007, he has repeatedly maintained that he opposes same-sex marriages and has always portrayed himself as a champion of traditional marriage. However, in an incident that has gone mostly unreported, Romney, as Governor of Massachusetts, personally issued at least 189 one-day special marriage licenses to same-sex couples in 2005. He likely issued a similar number of licenses in both 2004 and 2006 but the state records for these years are not easily available. One-day marriage licenses are in effect permits issued to a couple allowing them...

    As the nation faces a crucial election in a little over six months, the Republican Party appears to be caving in on a social issue that many conservatives consider of major import: same-sex marriage. What the GOP felt strongly enough about some 16 years ago to lead the fight for passage of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), many members are beginning to consider an issue open to compromise. Not only do many Republican House and Senate members consider “gay” marriage a “dead issue,” according to Politico.com, but Republican leadership has “evolved” to the point that it has quietly...

    A judge has stopped a Christian from using human rights arguments in his legal case against his employer who demoted him because of his moderate comments about gay weddings in churches. The ruling was handed down last week by District Judge Charles Khan at Manchester County Court. Adrian Smith will continue his legal action, claiming breach of contract, but the judge’s ruling will fuel concerns that the rights of Christians are being relegated. The ruling also comes amid deep national controversy surrounding the government’s plans to redefine marriage. Smith was a housing manager at Trafford Housing Trust (THT) when, on...

    Undercover detectives in Nashville, Tenn. responded to an advertisement in the adult section of Backpage.com, a website owned and operated by Village Voice Media. They posed as customers and arranged a hook-up at a local hotel. They arrived at a room where two under-age girls were awaiting, ready to perform sex acts for money. The girls weren’t turning tricks on their own. Their pimp, who recruited them from out of state, was waiting for them in the hotel parking lot, where the detectives arrested him on charges of trafficking for sexual servitude. The arrest in the Volunteer State was no...

    Secular fundamentalists, it turns out, have their own version of Sharia law. It is just as unbending, rigid and dangerous to liberty as the Muslim kind. And secular Sharia has ten commandments, just like the Judeo-Christian tradition does. The Ten Commandments of the Judeo-Christian tradition supplied the foundation for the American political experiment. As George Washington said, "Of all the disposition and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports." By "Religion," Washington meant Christianity, and by "morality," he meant the Ten Commandments. In other words, according to the Father of our country, it is impossible...

    Answer: The wedge was already there. Same-sex marriage activists are disturbed that the National Organization for Marriage reached out to enlist the help of minorities to defend pro-gender marriage. A recently released memo by NOM states, "The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks — two key Democratic constituencies." Gender-segregationist Evan Wolfson of Freedom to Marry asserts that NOM "will stop at nothing to push its agenda, pitting American against American, minority against minority, family members against family members." The elephant in the room is the big fat wedge that existed long before...

    PAXTON, MASSACHUSETTS, March 30, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Members of the Kennedy clan may be shoo-ins for every office in the state of Massachusetts, but they are not guaranteed access to young Catholic minds. Anna Maria College in Paxton uninvited Victoria Reggie Kennedy, the widow of Sen. Ted Kennedy, after Bishop Robert J. McManus said her positions on abortion, homosexuality, and the Obama administration’s mandate on insurance coverage for abortifacient contraception and sterilization were incompatible with Catholic teaching. The college said in a press release that it obeyed the bishop “with great regret,” saying that “as a small, Catholic college that...

    NEW YORK, March 30 (C-FAM) The UN Commission on Population and Development is considering “sexual and reproductive health and rights” for children as young as ten. Even the Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon agrees. In a statement recently released he said, “Young people, as much as all people, share the human right to health, including sexual and reproductive health.” The United Nations buildingsCurrently international law does not recognize a “right” to sexual and reproductive health and certainly does not recognize this right in the case of minors. But just last year, the UN Special Rapporteur for Health, Anand Grover, stirred up...

    The Obama administration has announced that it is taking the unbelievable role of pushing the homosexual agenda around the world and punishing countries that don't comply. Back in July, MassResistance reported how the Pakistanis angrily denounced the US Embassy's open homosexual parties as "cultural terrorism." Well, that was just the beginning. Now, foreign countries which seek to protect their citizens against homosexuality and the homosexual movement will be actively confronted by America's State Department, foreign service, and other federal departments, according to a Presidential Memorandum released by the Obama Administration announced on Dec. 6. Unless countries around the world subordinate...
  • Did Romney PAC violate California law by failing to report $10,000 donation to pro-Prop. 8 effort?

    Did GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s political action committee violate state law by failing to report a $10,000 donation to the National Organization for Marriage just three weeks before the election to decide California’s Prop. 8? That’s the charge from the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender civil rights organization, which Friday released previously undisclosed IRS documents from the National Organization for Marriage documenting the donation from the Romney PAC. NOM, a group which – like Romney, believes “marriage is an institution between a man and a woman” – was a key player in backing...

    Is it a stretch to imagine activists might someday push for affirmative action programs for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students? For now, administrators are just weighing whether to include a question about sexual orientation on application forms to determine whether California's state colleges are presently adequately serving the LGBT community: California’s state colleges and universities are laying plans to ask students about their sexual orientation next year on application or enrollment forms, becoming the largest group of schools in the country to do so. The move has raised the hopes of gay activists for recognition but the concerns of...

    LONDON — Americans watching the latest push for social change in Britain might feel as if they had stepped into an alternate political universe: Here, the Conservatives are leading the charge for same-sex marriage. Gay couples in Britain won the right to civil partnerships in 2004, which granted them nearly the same legal status as married heterosexual couples while avoiding the controversial use of the word “marriage.” But Prime Minister David Cameron and his Conservative-led coalition have launched a historic drive to grant gay men and lesbians the option of also entering into civil marriages, touching off a surprisingly fierce...
