  • Mark Steyn: Queer Theory meets African Studies

    President Obama has wrapped up his tour of Africa. It was notable, insofar as that word can be applied to the trip, for his somewhat condescending and neo-colonial lecture to his hosts on the need to ease up on the old homophobia. Certainly, Africa is not terribly gay-friendly. But nor are other parts of the planet. In his ardent wooing of Iran, for example, he doesn't seem to have been perturbed in the least by his new best friends' executions of homosexuals, anymore than he is by the brutalization of gays elsewhere in the Muslim world. You might deduce in...

    If the Boy Scouts of America approve gay adult leaders, as they are expected to do late Monday (July 27), does that mean troops based at churches may end up in court if they ban gay Scoutmasters? Scout officials predicted that would be ďunlikelyĒ in a document they released earlier this month to BSA members and leaders. ďWe live in a litigious society, and frivolous lawsuits are threatened and filed every day,Ē reads the 14-page memo from the Boys Scoutsí law firm, Hughes Hubbard & Reed. ďHowever, any lawsuit challenging the religious requirements in a Scouting unit chartered by a...

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has said it will be re-evaluating its long-standing participation in the Boy Scouts of America, following the latter's decision to end its blanket ban on openly gay adult leaders. "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is deeply troubled by today's vote by the Boy Scouts of America National Executive Board.

    It took only a moment and it was over. But in that moment, much changed. In a warehouse near the river in downtown Detroit, on the eve of the feast of St. Anne, patroness of Detroit, a statue to the demon Baphomet was unveiled. The event was sponsored by the Satanic Temple and was described as the "largest public satanic ceremony in history." Whether that claim is true or not, hundreds of people turned out for the event by first being directed by e-mail to a decoy location ó a deserted bank in a seedy Detroit neighborhood ó where they...

    Moral decline (or degeneration) refers to the process of declining from a higher to a lower level of morality. The condition of moral decline is seen as preceding or concomitant with the decline in quality of life, as well as the decline of nations.

    The dirty little secret about gay marriage: Most gay couples are not monogamous. We have come to accept lately, partly thanks to Liza Mundyís excellent recent cover story in the Atlantic and partly because we desperately need something to make the drooping institution of heterosexual marriage seem vibrant again, that gay marriage has something to teach us, that gay couples provide a model for marriages that are more egalitarian and less burdened by the old gender roles that are weighing marriage down these days. But the thorny part of the gay marriage experiment is sex, and more precisely, monogamous sex....

  • CELIBACY'S ROOTS AND FRUITS [1 Timothy 4]

    One must understand that mandatory celibacy is not taught in the Bible, nor was it practiced by the apostles. This teaching developed as an integral part of the evolving papal system and gradually became essential to it. The concern was not morality, for celibacy proved to be a veritable cornucopia of evil. In fact, the rule of celibacy was not the prohibition of sex but of marriage. Pope Alexander II (1061-73), for example, refused to discipline a priest who had committed adultery with his father's second wife because he hadn't committed the sin of matrimony. That was the great evil...

    A genetic cause for homosexuality is not scientifically possible. A homosexuality gene, if it existed, would quickly die out. However, it gradually becomes clear that liberals and progressives are poorly-educated about science. They passionately believe in evolution, yet they donít understand it. Public discussion is driven by an assumption that one may be ďborn homosexual.Ē Being Ďborní homosexual is a medical impossibility unless there is a specific gene causing it. That is, heterosexuals would have one genetic DNA sequence while homosexuals have a different DNA sequence in its place. I discovered something debating this topic: One central point simply escapes...

    With a liberal court, we get the rulings we deserve. Or, in other words, elections have consequences. It's safe to say that without the election of Barack Obama, we would not have had to endure liberal Supreme Court justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor sitting in judgement of marriage. (Both appointed by Obama in his first term, and both voting to legally redefine marriage.) Of course, the election of a republican, especially the likes of John McCain, gives no guarantee of conservative appointments to the Supreme Court. However, justices Roberts and Alito, appointed by George W. Bush, both voted against...

Same-sex marriage is the law of the land, as the right of gays and lesbians to marry is right there in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1868. We just didn't see it. Tony Kennedy spotted what no previous court had detected. The absurdity of the decision aside,...

He cited the First Amendment for the proposition that religions and those that adhere to them ďmay continue to advocate with utmost sincere conviction that, by divine precepts,...

    Jesus died so that heterosexual and homosexual sinners might be saved. Jesus created sexuality, and has a clear will for how it is to be experienced in holiness and joy. His will is that a man might leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and that the two become one flesh (Mark 10:6Ė9). In this union, sexuality finds its God-appointed meaning, whether in personal-physical unification, symbolic representation, sensual jubilation, or fruitful procreation. For those who have forsaken Godís path of sexual fulfillment, and walked into homosexual intercourse or heterosexual extramarital fornication or adultery, Jesus offers astonishing mercy....

    The editorial board of PennLive/The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. is taking a hardcore stance against those who disagree with the Supreme Court ruling to legalize gay marriage. ďAs a result of Fridayís ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage,Ē they declared. After receiving strong pushback, the newspaperís editorial board, which is overseen by Editorial Page Editor John Micek, quickly revised its policy. Freedom of speech will be allowed ó but only for a ďlimitedĒ period of time. Micek explained on Twitter: ďClarification: We will not...

    Solving the marriage equation is easy --it resolves itself when you simply use the proper term:holy matrimony. All indications suggest the U.S. Supreme Court is likely to miss this connection in its decision due any day now. Marriage has always essentially been a function of ďthe churchĒ (figuratively speaking). It is not a function of the stateóand in fact the state is specifically precluded from any activity whatsoever hereóby the First Amendment: ďCongress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;Ē Seen from this vantage point, the correct and inalienable vantage point, it...

    Evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham has responded to critics of his decision to discontinue business with Wells Fargo following the company's TV ad featuring a same-sex couple. The head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse had a column published last week arguing that the boycott was not about Wells Fargo being "gay-friendly." "Indeed, the bank we transferred our accounts to ó BB&T based in Winston-Salem, N.C. ó is also widely considered gay-friendly. In fact, it may surprise some to learn that I think every business should be gay-friendly," wrote Graham "By that I mean businesses ó...

Berryís focus, in the interview published in Brazil in June 12, 2015, was on gays as an oppressed class, the classical Marxist and ideological speech. I will focus only on his view that regardless a Democrat or a Republican is the next U.S. president, Berry makes abundantly clear that...

    I was a law student when I first learned of the consequences of not being politically correct concerning homosexuality. A former Miss Americaís contract as the citrus growersí brand-ambassador was allowed to lapse because she had successfully campaigned for the repeal of a pro-homosexual ordinance in Miami-Dade County. She was quoted as saying, ďWhat these people really want, hidden behind obscure legal phrases, is the legal right to propose to our children that theirs is an acceptable, alternate way of life.Ē She was publicly humiliated Ė "pied" on national television Ė and her name Ė Anita Bryant Ė became synonymous...

    On Monday, the Pew Research Center released the results of a new survey on how Americans view homosexuality.One question asked respondents whether homosexuality should be accepted or discouraged by society.

This was the case for men and women, each of the generational cohorts Pew looked...
