  • Black Leaders and Gay Advocates March in Step

    NY TImes ^ | 6/9/2012
    For years, gay rights organizations and major civil rights organizations viewed each other warily. African-American leaders often saw the gay rights groups as insensitive to racial concerns, and some resented the movement’s use of civil rights language to make the case for same-sex marriage. Advocates for gay rights, in turn, sometimes blamed socially conservative African-Americans for their defeat in crucial electoral battles. But since the relationship reached something of a crisis with the passage of Proposition 8, California’s ballot initiative against same-sex marriage, in 2008, leaders in both movements have made an effort to bring their groups closer together. Now,...
  • Getting Them While They Are Young

    06/12/2012 11:33:49 AM PDT · by massmike · 13 replies ^ | 06/12/2012 | Dave Blount
    What the hell are children that young doing at an event promoting disgusting forms of lethal disease-spreading depravity? Receiving indoctrination, of course. Original caption: "Alaina Guidice reads ‘Monday’s with Maxim’ to children during the 14th annual VCS Gay Pride Rockland celebration in Nyack June 10, 2012. The event featured speakers, music, dance, and games for children. ‘Monday’s with Maxim’ is part of ‘The Jessica Books,’ a series of seven books about the adventures of a young girl with two mothers." No doubt they are exposed to similar brainwashing on a regular basis in their moonbat-run public schools. Psychotherapists can look...

    Be proud – in uniform: A recent photo posted on the Israeli military's international Facebook page is causing a positive cyber-stir, as it aims to express the army's support for gay soldiers, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Tuesday. The photo, which depicts an Artillery soldier and a Givati soldier holding hands, carries the caption: "It's Pride Month. Did you know that the IDF treats all of its soldiers equally?" The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that the photo was taken as part of Israel's gay and lesbian community's Pride Month events, with the full cooperation of the featured couple.

    American Thinker ^ | 06/12/2012 | J. Robert Smith
    The Washington Times reported on Sunday that two new studies indicate that children raised by gay parents might not benefit from the experience like kids raised by married mother-father parents. "The empirical claim that no notable differences exist must go," University of Texas sociology professor Mark Regnerus said in his study in Social Science Research. Regnerus's study involved 3,000 randomly selected young adults in the U.S. These young adults' lives were measured for "social, emotional, and relationship outcomes." The other new study challenges the widely accepted contention by the American Psychological Association that "[n]ot a single study has found children...

    “Listen…there is this back-and-forth that happens all the time. I will tell you Jeb Bush’s Republican Party is a party of the future.” “I don’t compare myself to Jeb. He is a great man. I am a mere servant of the ‘Jebular.’ But Joe Scarborough’s Republican Party is the future of the Republican Party.” Scarborough continued his rant by expressing his view of what ingredients a successful Republican Party needed, which is not what many tea party activist have been promoting. “I’ve had people come up to me hysterically the past couple of years screaming and yelling.

    Young adults from broken homes in which a parent had had a same-sex relationship reported modestly more psychological and social problems in their current lives than peers from other families that had experienced divorce and other disruptions, a new study has found, stirring bitter debate among partisans on gay marriage. The study counted parents as gay or lesbian by asking participants whether their parents had ever had a same-sex relationship; the parents may not have identified themselves as gay or lesbian. Gay-rights groups attacked the study, financed by conservative foundations, as biased and poorly done even before its publication on...

    Jerry Sandusky's trial in the Penn State scandal opened in graphic fashion Monday with the first witness testifying that the retired coach molested him in the locker-room showers and in hotels while trying to ensure his silence with gifts and trips to bowl games. The man, now 28 and dubbed Victim 4 in court papers, left nothing to the imagination as he told the jury about the abuse he said he endured for five years beginning when he was a teenager in the late 1990s. "I've denied it forever," he testified, looking straight at the prosecutor as Sandusky sat motionless...

    A law to allow same-sex weddings will destroy the institution of marriage for future generations, leaders of the Church of England warned yesterday. They claim it will lead to a constitutional crisis, arguing that human rights legislation will force churches to treat gay couples asking for a wedding in the same way they treat heterosexual couples. The Church of England’s warning comes in response to the Government’s consultation on legalising same-sex marriage, which will close this week. The proposed reforms, formally launched in March, have been described by Church officials as ‘half-baked’, ‘very shallow’, ‘superficial’ and ‘completely irrational’. They claim...

    -A 24-year-old Massachusetts woman who allegedly masqueraded as a teenage boy is facing federal charges for engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl who was unaware that the boyfriend she met online was actually a female. Carissa Hads was arrested two weeks ago on a U.S. District Court complaint accusing her of coercion or enticement of a minor, a felony carrying a maximum of 30 years in prison. Following Hads’s May 24 arrest, agents searched her front pants pocket and located a “fake, flesh-colored penis” that she apparently used during one of two prior sexual encounters with the...

    Two studies released Sunday may act like brakes on popular social-science assertions that gay parents are the same as — or maybe better than — married mother-father parents. "The empirical claim that no notable differences exist must go," University of Texas sociology professor Mark Regnerus said in his study in Social Science Research. Using a "gold standard" data set of nearly 3,000 randomly selected American young adults, Mr. Regnerus looked at their lives on 40 measures of social, emotional and relationship outcomes. He found that, when compared with adults raised in married, mother-father families, adults raised by lesbian mothers had...

    It may come as a surprise to some of her fans, but Carrie Underwood has announced her support for gay marriage. The devoutly Christian "Jesus, Take the Wheel" country singer spoke out to The Independent on why she believes marriage should be legal for all. "As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, and want to marry," Underwood, 29, explained. "I can't imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love."...

    A Taylor Middle-High School teacher has resigned after a parent complained the title of a video about gay sex was shown to students through a classroom projector as the teacher scrolled through files on his school-issued laptop computer, but he still faces a state investigation. Jose Rosario-Gonzalez, 53, submitted his resignation two weeks ago effective next Tuesday, citing "family/personal reasons." A school district report released this week shows Rosario-Gonzalez, a Volusia history teacher for 12 years, quit after being told he would be recommended for dismissal based on an investigation into a complaint about the classroom display of the...

    National Review ^ | June 10, 2012 6:00 P.M. | By Charles C. W. Cooke
    In his new Social Science Journal study...Mark Regnerus set out to answer the question of whether children who have parents in a same-sex relationship experience disadvantages when compared with children raised by their biological, married parents. The answer, contra the zeitgeist, appears to be a resounding yes. Children with a parent in a same-sex relationship “underperform” in almost every category. Some of these differences may be relatively benign — whether one voted in the last presidential election, for example — but most are decidedly not. One deficit is particularly worrying: Less than 2 percent of children from intact, biological families...

    U.S. Rep. Barney Frank is calling upon Mainers to legalize same-sex marriage so he and his longtime partner can get married next year in Maine. Frank told the crowd that he and his fiance, Jim Ready of Ogunquit, want to get married in Massachusetts this year and do the same next year in Maine. Mainers will vote on a ballot referendum in November on whether to legalize gay marriage. The Bangor Daily News quoted Frank calling for cutting military spending and maintaining the current retirement age. He also lamented what he called the disappearance of moderate Republicans from Congress.

    Christians are finding it increasingly difficult to practice their faith in the public sphere, as a number of recent cases demonstrate. In New Mexico the Court of Appeals ruled that the refusal by a photo studio to photograph a same-sex couple is a breach of the state’s Human Rights Act, the Albuquerque Journal reported, June 5. In 2006 Vanessa Willock asked Elaine Huguenin of Elane Photography if she would take pictures of a “same-gender ceremony.” She was told the studio only handled “traditional weddings.” The studio also lost previous rulings by the New Mexico Human Rights Commission in 2008 and...

    Every year he has been in office President Obama has made it a point to cozy up to America’s tiny homosexual activist minority by officially recognizing June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” This year, of course, was no exception. Having just come out officially in favor of legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the President followed up on June 1 by issuing this year’s proclamation setting aside the entire month to commemorate the valuable contributions that gays, lesbians, transvestites, and an odds-and-ends assortment of sexually- and gender-confused individuals have made to American society. “The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)...

    Who’s calling the shots over at the Girl Scouts? And where’s the organization headed?The questions matter for two reasons. First, it’s cookie season. Any day now some cute little girls wearing green sashes and bright smiles will knock on your door and sweetly seek support for their projects, badges, and activities. Do you write the check or not? (Forget your craving for Thin Mints. Think rationally!) Should you support the Girl Scouts? Second, the Girl Scouts organization (GSUSA) is in trouble again. In recent weeks, they’ve drawn scrutiny for promoting biased resources (the left-wing Media Matters) and pressuring an employee...

    The 14-year-old radio host whose comments about gays ignited a firestorm this week has been dropped from the online radio platform Spreaker. The page that was once the home to “The Caiden Cowger Program” now returns an error message saying the show is no longer available and has been deleted due to “offensive contents.” In Cowger’s now-viral rant against homosexuality, the West Virginia teen called being gay a choice, not the way someone is born.
