  • Conservatives target Republicans who back gay marriage: 'You could lose your career'

    Brian Brown, executive director of NOM, doesn't shy away from the fact his group is hoping to intimidate wavering lawmakers into opposing gay marriage. “The message is clear, that supporting same-sex marriage is a losing issue, not a winning issue,” Brown told msnbc.com. “You could lose your career over supporting same-sex marriage.” He also doesn't buy the argument that gay marriage is a settled issue in New York, even though a May 2012 poll by Quinnipac University found the state's voters support same-sex marriage 54 to 37 percent. "If we don’t get a vote this year, we’re going to work...

    Vice President Joe Biden speaking out against dating violence during a White House event on Thursday said that dating violence and sexual assault won’t end until attitudes change and the perpetrator is treated like a “pariah.” “But the progress we’ve made so far isn’t enough,” Biden said. Young women still face the highest rates of dating violence, and nearly one in five college women will face sexual assault during her college career, he said. “Guys, these just aren’t statistics. They’re people you know. They’re your sister, the woman you’re in class with that you like, people you grew up with,...

    Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has been placed on suicide watch in jail, his lawyer said on Saturday, day after being found guilty of the serial sexual abuse of vulnerable young people. Speaking on CNN, Sandusky's co-counsel Karl Rominger said his client was in protective custody and being kept away from other inmates as a precautionary measure, adding that there was no "immediate concerns" about Sandusky's wellbeing. Sandusky is currently in jail awaiting sentencing for 45 counts of sexually abusing underage boys over a 15-year period. Sandusky is expected to spend the rest of his life in...

The high-profile began last year when almost a dozen people came out, revealing that Sandusky has molested them, which then resulted in the firing of Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno.

    President Barack Obama's endorsement of gay marriage appears to have made Americans on both sides of the issue even more entrenched in their positions, firing up his young, liberal backers and intensifying opposition from Republicans and conservatives, according to a new poll. Overall, his announcement last month that he supported gay marriage did little to shift the nation's views on the subject, with the country remaining evenly divided on it, the Associated Press-GfK survey found.

    The theory of "American" liberalism can be summed up in three words: socialism, sexual deviancy, and surrender. No, really, I promise. It's that simple. I dare say it's like stating two and two make four. Ever since the first progressiveviks slithered out of the primordial soup of failed European political theories, their focus, when they're not high on some drug or another, has been to promote socialism, sexual deviancy, and surrender. Every program, every speech, and every street agitation ranging from Woodrow Wilson's War Socialism to Chairman Obama's Hopey-Changey crap has had either the redistribution of wealth, the institution of...

    Marriage is how society recognizes and protects this right. Marriage is the planet’s only institution whose core purpose is to unite the biological, social and legal components of parenthood into one lasting bond. Marriage says to a child: The man and the woman whose sexual union made you will also be there to love and raise you. In this sense, marriage is a gift that society bestows on its children. At the level of first principles, gay marriage effaces that gift. No same-sex couple, married or not, can ever under any circumstances combine biological, social and legal parenthood into one...

Rep.

But the request was denied by both St. Joseph’s and its insurance administrator, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, because hospital policy excludes same-sex spouses.

    George Washington must be rolling over in his grave. The Pentagon under Commander-in-Chief Obama is on its way to becoming the world’s largest “gay pride” agency. Behold another tragic “first” for Obama: the first-ever homosexual “pride” celebration at the Department of Defense (Tuesday, June 26, 2012). Note how the organizers of “Pentagon Pride” slipped in “transgender” pride even though transgenders were not part of the law to homosexualize the military. In reality, homosexuality and gender confusion are nothing to be proud of. Now, thanks to Obama and the Democrats (and some Republicans), our young military men and women will be...

    Lutherans Concerned/North America Becomes ReconcilingWorks It's a new day and we have a new name!! For decades we've worked among Lutherans for the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the life of the church. In 2009, a major milestone was achieved when the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America voted to allow ministers in lifelong, same-gender relationships to serve in the church. In 2011, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada established policies that permit the legal marriage or blessing of same-gender couples and that sexual orientation is not an impediment to ordination. But, the work for...

    Irony of Ironies. Known as the chief prophetess for the accelerating gay craze for marital rights, and against the "epidemic" of gay bullying, Lady Gaga has been a prime motivator for the Gaying of America, which seems to have even extended into the U.S Armed Forces under Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who recently had the Pentagon, of all places, celebrate Gay Pride Week. How about a Christian Humility week, Mr. Secretary, where the once staunch man-and-wife matrimony proponent, Barack Obama, can demote anyone in the military who still believes that gayness is against God's law? I'm sure the...

    Parents could tell something was wrong with the children when they came home from school. They were quiet and withdrawn, embarrassed, and didn’t want to talk about what had happened. When Curtis and Jean Pannkuk began questioning their young daughter, they discovered that her elementary school principal had instructed her that day in how to perform oral and anal sex. The traumatizing instruction was delivered as a part of state approved sex education that was orchestrated, developed, pushed, and policed by Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington, SIECUS, and a host of other agencies. Though parents in the small town of...

    J. C. Penney Company, Inc. today ousted its JCPenney brand president, Michael Francis, who oversaw the retailer's merchandising and marketing operations, with a terse statement that "We thank Michael for his hard work at jcpenney and wish him the best in his future endeavors." Francis, who was hired last October "at great expense" (as the New York Times retail reporter tweeted, in light of his whopping $12 million signing bonus) from Target is seen as taking the fall for his boss, company CEO Ron Johnson, the former Apple top retailer who oversaw JCP's new brand strategy in January. Now, of...

    Homosexual couples in Denmark have won the right to get married in any church they choose, even though nearly one third of the country's priests have said they will refuse to carry out the ceremonies.The country's parliament voted through the new law on same-sex marriage by a large majority, making it mandatory for all churches to conduct gay marriages. Denmark's church minister, Manu Sareen, called the vote "historic". "I think it's very important to give all members of the church the possibility to get married. Today, it's only heterosexual couples." Under the law, individual priests can refuse to carry out...

    Pop star Carrie Underwood should take her own advice, which she provided in one of her top hits, and let “Jesus Take the Wheel.” In an interview with the London Independent, Underwood, an “American Idol” winner who professes to be a follower of Jesus, expressed her passionate support for same-sex marriage. Here’s some of what she had to say about that: “I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry. … I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and...
