    Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill requiring foster parents and other care givers to undergo training in "cultural competency and sensitivity" regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth. The bill by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) has been controversial, with some conservative activists saying it will discourage adults from volunteering as foster parents.
  • Buffalo Church Vandal Was Angry With God

    The motive behind a Buffalo man’s church vandalism spree is more clear – it was Wade Murray’s anger with God. Murray is accused of breaking doors and throwing rocks through stained glass windows at six churches in Buffalo last weekend. Police say the 30-year-old also left behind offensive messages and posters about religion and homosexuality. On Sunday, Pastor Rob Jarvis of Hosanna Lutheran in Buffalo, Minn., found a disturbing poster, and on Monday the broken glass was discovered — by Wednesday night the suspect sat in jail. “Now that he’s in custody, we recognize it’s not going to happen anymore,...
  • As 'Vote Yes' Efforts Ramp Up, Signs Go Missing, Vandalized (Gay Marriage Amendment in Minnesota)

    09/28/2012 9:15:36 PM PDT · by MplsSteve · 9 replies
    A spokesperson for the "Vote Yes" campaign run by Minnesota for Marriage says funding and donations have doubled the past couple months. Now, they're making a final push to get marriage amendment supporters to the polls, but some efforts to spread the message have been frustrating. New billboards are up, October TV commercials are prepped and phones are ringing. "We're just working really hard on reaching out to those folks that are with us and making sure they get out to the polls on election day," said Autumn Leva, a spokesperson for Minnesota for Marriage. Supporters are helping to spread...
  • Teaching Kids to Have Sex With Vegetables in Toronto Public Schools

    The moonbats running our government schools had better look alive. Canadian schools are progressing right past them in the race to liberal utopia. For example, the Toronto District School Board’s website encourages children to have sex with vegetables: An adult who repeated this filth to a child on school grounds would be arrested, even at this point in our cultural decline. But linking to it on a website gets around that for now, while enlightened liberal educators wait for repressive laws and backward bitter clingers to catch up.
  • Why same-sex marriage affects my marriage

    Mpls Star Tribune ^ | September 28, 2012 | RILEY BALLING
    In the marriage debate, people frequently argue that how one chooses to define marriage doesn't affect other people's definitions of marriage, and because my definition is as good as yours, it should also be promoted by society. Many times it is stated: "What I choose to do in my marriage doesn't affect your marriage." However, same-sex marriage affects all of our marriages. First, to explain, private actions have public effects. All our actions, both private and public, define our identity. Being human, we are motivated to impart our identity to future generations. As we have seen, and understandably so, people...

    PJ Media ^ | September 28, 2012 | J. Christian Adams
    Ever since PJ Media’s blockbuster Every Single One Series documented the radical partisan lawyers hired as career civil servants in the Obama DOJ, many have asked me how this is accomplished. One way is that only attorneys are hired who have resumes which have obvious ideological histories. The Every Single One series provided the public copies of these resumes. They are filled with cues that were used in the hiring process to exclude some and include others. But Eric Holder is also personally furthering the cause of ideological hiring. One way Holder is accomplishing this goal is by recruiting from...

    The firing of a Montgomery County elementary school teacher for behaving inappropriately with male students was upheld Tuesday by the Maryland school board, which questioned why the teacher was not fired sooner. Daniel Picca was terminated from Silver Spring's Kemp Mill Elementary School in 2010, 17 years after an initial complaint at Rachel Carson Elementary School and 12 years after the county's child protective services found him responsible for child abuse. He received at least seven written warnings over the 17 years from three principals and two superintendents. When former Superintendent Jerry Weast transferred Picca from Rockville's Luxmanor Elementary School...

    On Line Opinion ^ | 27 September, 2012 | Ben-Peter Terpstra
    Last week, two same-sex marriage bills were firmly rejected. As a result, campaigning journalists feel confused, even wounded. Or at least they’re pretending to be upset right now. Why isn’t their atheist prime minister on their side? Left-wing gay activists are fuming too. After all, they believe Gillard should be for “marriage equality” in relation to monogamy (but not polygamy for some outré reason). Why isn’t their progressive prime minister on their side? In response , political editor Ross Peake of The Canberra Times wrote, “Her detractors wonder how this works for an atheist living in a de facto relationship....

    (CNSNews.com) - Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee, told a West Palm Beach, Fla., television station over the weekend that he is now okay with homosexuals in the military and does not want to reverse the repeal of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy. “I talked to a lot of good friends of mine who are combat leaders in the theater, and they just didn’t think the timing of this was right to do this when our troops were in the middle of harm’s way in combat,” Ryan told WPTV Saturday, when asked about the one-year anniversary...

    Earlier this year, a group of University of Notre Dame faculty and staff drafted a letter in support of the “LGBTQ community” at Notre Dame, after the University announced it would not add sexual orientation to its nondiscrimination clause despite pressure from some student groups and faculty. Now, a petition signed by 366 Notre Dame faculty, administration and staff was published yesterday in the campus newspaper as a full page ad urging the university to add sexual orientation to its nondiscrimination clause. The letter said, in part: “We value the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning members of our community...

    With gay marriage on November ballots in several states, gay rights groups have been buying airtime to run ads in favor of marriage equality. But most of the ads feature heterosexual people on-screen — a choice that’s angering some in those states’ gay communities. Gay Minnesotan Alexander Zachary finds it offensive. “The only thing I can think of is they’ve hired a political strategist and they’s said straight people don’t want to see gay people on TV,” said Zachary.

Police said they were called to the garage about 7:40 p.m. and found a man inside a gray 2006 Saturn. Police attempted to perform CPR on the man, but were unsuccessful. Boston EMS declared the patient dead at 8:05 p.m., and the call was referred to the Medical Examiner, police said.

At issue is nearly $100,000 that goes to the Boy Scouts of America Greater Cleveland Council for Scoutreach, a program that brings scouting to about 1,600 inner-city youth with an eye on physical fitness and citizenship.

    MINNEAPOLIS — In one TV ad, a husband and wife talk fondly of a lesbian couple who moved into their neighborhood. In another, a married couple speaks of wanting fair treatment for their lesbian daughter. A third features a pastor talking supportively about gay unions. Each of these ads ran recently in states with gay marriage issues on the November ballot. What’s missing? Gay people speaking for themselves. Gay activists who have worked on the marketing campaigns say that in this battle for public opinion, it’s better for gays to stay in the background.

    Pastors, I'd like to propose some hypotheticals for you. Imagine a scenario in which the president of the United States used his bully pulpit to declare to the country that divorce was a good thing, beneficial to spouses and good for kids who would be saved from contentious households. Certainly some people feel that way. Or, imagine if the president of the United States told the country that monogamy was unnatural and that it was not actually our urges that needed to be overcome but our petty jealousies over sexual exclusivity. I'm certain there are people who share those sentiments....

    Massachusetts will appeal a federal judge's decision to grant a convicted murderer's request for sex reassignment surgery, prison officials announced Wednesday. The state Department of Correction said that it believes the medical care Michelle Kosilek is receiving is adequate and that the court didn't address what it says are legitimate safety concerns of protecting her in prison. U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled this month that the surgery is the only adequate treatment for Kosilek's gender-identity disorder, a condition Wolf said is a "serious medical need." He said denying surgery violated Kosilek's Eighth Amendment rights. It was the first time...
