  • Masterpiece Cakeshop II: If You Can’t Say No, Your Yes Means Nothing

    As an assertiveness trainer, I made up an axiom: "If you can't say no, your yes means nothing." Our belief that we aren't allowed to say no can be a form of self-imposed slavery. We have even bigger problems when our government typifies that belief. Once again, the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD) is targeting Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop. The original drama lasted more than six years and concerned Phillips' refusal to create a custom wedding cake for a gay couple. The finale came in June 2018 with a 7-2 Supreme Court decision in Phillips' favor. The...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Two years after the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that states could not prohibit same-sex marriages, 10.2% of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) adults in the U.S. are married to a same-sex spouse. That is up from 7.9% in the months prior to the Supreme Court decision in 2015, but only marginally higher than the 9.6% measured in the first year after the ruling.

    19 Aug 20181075 Netflix’s Insatiable star Alyssa Milano railed against President Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, declaring that he will “affect everything we know to be true as American citizens.” Speaking alongside far-left pro-abortion activists including Lauren Duca, Cecile Richards, Jessica McIntosh, Jessica Morales Rocketto and Meagan Hatcher-Mays at the Los Angeles stop of the “Rise Up for Roe” tour, Milano described it as “f***ing absurd” that they are fighting to keep abortion legalized and called on people to mobilize against Kavanaugh’s nomination.

    Self-described "ass-kicking, motorcycle-riding, Texas Democrat" MJ Hegar, a candidate for Texas’ deep-red 31st district, has a novel approach to environmental politics: she doesn’t care if her supporters believe in man-made climate change, but says it's hard to deny the corrupting effects of petroleum dependence on American foreign policy. "Our dependence on foreign oil is just so damaging to our country on so many levels," Hegar told ABC News in a June interview. "I respect other people’s freedom to be discerning and to make their own decisions. But they can’t deny that the U.S. military pays the price for our dependence...

    Ted Haggard was once one of the most power evangelical leaders in America. New Life Church leader Ted Haggard was once one of America's most charismatic and powerful evangelical leaders, with an audience of more than 30 million people. Ted began counseling foreign dignitaries and consulting on a weekly basis with President George W. Bush. By 2005, Time magazine named him one of the most influential evangelicals in America. But no one—not even his devoted wife, five children and his Colorado Springs, Colorado-based congregation—suspected that Ted was paying an admitted male escort for crystal meth. In November 2006, Mike Jones...

    August 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Disney is reportedly pushing the homosexual envelope yet again with an upcoming film in which it will feature for the first time an openly gay character. The move is being hailed as a "turning point" for Disney. British comedian Jack Whitehall will play a gay character in Jungle Cruise, which is based on the iconic theme park ride of the same name, the UK’s Sun reports. The film, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, is slated for an October 2019 release. Whitehall’s character is reportedly the brother of Blunt’s, and “a gay...

Wuerl is the current archbishop of Washington, D.C., the successor of now-disgraced ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.As bishop of Pittsburgh, Wuerl knew about predatory priests and shuffled them to different dioceses, putting more children at risk.

    After spending about $100 on lower-bowl tickets and driving 2˝ hours from the Lafayette area, Tracey Hernandez was nervous as she took her seat near midfield of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Friday night. It wasn’t the preseason game the Saints were about to play against Arizona that worried her — the dance instructor hardly watches football. What mattered to her was how her son, Jesse, would fare in his debut as the first-ever male member of the Saintsations, New Orleans’ NFL dance team. The crowd in the stadium was the biggest Jesse had performed in front of since his dancing...

    Willow Creek Community Church in Illinois reportedly paid $3.5 million in lawsuits over the sex abuse of two developmentally disabled boys. The evangelical megachurch, which recently saw its entire elders board resign over unrelated accusations that former lead pastor Bill Hybels sexually abused women, made the payments in the lawsuits over several years, court records obtained by The Chicago Tribune show. One payment of $1.75 million was apparently made in February, while another one of $1.5 million was made last year. Former Willow Creek volunteer Robert Sobczak Jr., now 24, pled guilty in 2014 of abusing an 8-year-old with special...

    Legislation to add a “Gender X” option to driver’s license should have been a straightforward task in the far-left state of Massachusetts, but one Republican lawmaker managed to derail the bill by taking transgender ideology to its furthest extreme. The state Senate voted in June to approve the measure, which would have also extended the option to learner’s permits and state identification cards. No documentation would have been required to prove an applicant is neither male nor female. “It’s a milestone,” bill sponsor Sen. Karen Spilka, a Democrat, said at the time. Despite the state House of Representatives being just...

    The majority of young millennial women reject unrestricted abortion, refuse a “feminist” identity, and indicate trust issues with the media – according to a poll by the media. In anticipation of the upcoming midterm elections, CBS and Refinery29 teamed up for a poll concerning young American women’s voting trends and views on certain issues. They began publicizing it August 13. While some media reports of the findings focused more on the political aspects, such as the Trump Administration, the poll revealed much more. Namely, that many young women don’t fit the mold that the media and politicians often assume. Abortion...

    Mass. School District Pushes Political Correctness in Math Class by Josh Montez, correspondent SUMMARY: Why would any school district force political correctness down the throats of students in math class? Let's hope it's not a trend. The Newton, Mass., public school district is pushing a divisive, politically correct agenda -- in math classes. Brian Camenker, the director of the Parents Rights Coalition in Newton, is not at all pleased. "The way these people play with the kids' minds is really horrible," said Camenker, whose two children were educated in Newton public schools in the Bay State. He's especially not happy...

    A study that shows a huge jump in children who identify as transgender can be traced to a culture pushing the idea. "Children are steeped in this culture, at least through the developed western world," observes Dr. Micelle Cretella, "that is basically marketing this transgender identity to them." A study performed earlier this year shows nearly three percent of 13-to 17-year-olds identify as transgender as compared to less than one percent just a year ago. The study, published by American Academy of Pediatrics, looked at approximately 81,000 ninth and 11th grade students in Minnesota. Experts say those results can be...

    Believe it or not, Jack Phillips is once again being hauled before the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. In June, Jack Phillips won a five-year battle against the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The Supreme Court, by a 7-2 margin, ruled that the Commission had displayed impermissible bias towards his faith. What kind of bias? Well, statements comparing Phillips' unwillingness to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding to the Holocaust. Yes, there was ample evidence, the court ruled, that the Commission was out to get Phillips. It seems like the Commission, which was almost defunded for their shenanigans by the Colorado...

    A new grand jury report says that internal documents from six Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania show that more than 300 "predator priests" have been credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 child victims. "We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands," the grand jury report says. "Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades. Monsignors, auxiliary bishops, bishops, archbishops, cardinals have mostly been protected;...

    Cardinal Raymond Burke has called for “open recognition” of the Catholic church’s homosexual culture in light of recent revelations of sexual abuse. “I believe that there needs to be an open recognition that we have a very grave problem of a homosexual culture in the Church,” Burke said in an interview Thursday, “especially among the clergy and the hierarchy, that needs to be addressed honestly and efficaciously.” he former head of the church’s equivalent of the Supreme Court said it was already “clear after the studies following the 2002 sexual abuse crisis that most of the acts of abuse were...
