  • No man’s land: Women-only city planned for Saudi Arabia

    08/11/2012 10:21:16 AM PDT · by bayouranger · 38 replies ^ | Not Listed
    Saudi Arabia is to build a new city exclusively for women. The Gulf kingdom is working on the narrow junction between strict Sharia law and the aspirations of active females who wish to pursue their own careers. ­The new plan is to combine women’s desire to work in the modern age and provide a job environment that would go hand-in-hand with the country’s Sharia law. The Saudi Industrial Property Authority (Modon) has been charged to lead the country into a new era. The ambitious mono-city is now being designed with construction to begin next year. The municipality in the Eastern...

    (Arlington, VA) Army Brigadier General Tammy Smith has become the first openly gay flag officer to come out while currently serving in the U.S. military. She was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General in a private ceremony which took place today at the Women’s Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery. BG Smith received her stars from her wife, Tracey Hepner. “For years, gay and lesbian generals and admirals were forced to hide their families in order to protect their careers. It is a great day for our military and for our nation when this courageous leader is finally able to...

    A Turkish newspaper columnist has been heavily criticised after writing an article which said the Olympic Games is destroying the female figure. The piece - called "Womanhood is Dying at the Olympics"... soon spread around the world by saying the Games was distorting women's bodies .... 'Their breasts – the symbol of womanhood, motherhood – flattened into stubs as they were seen as mere hindrances to speed. 'I am not even talking about female javelin throwers, shot-put athletes, weightlifters, wrestlers and boxers.' He added that the appearance of many female Olympians was 'pathetic'. Following the publication of the article, Mr...

    The Chick-fil-A staff member who was verbally abused by a customer for the fast-food firms anti-gay marriage stance has said she has forgiven him and is willing to meet him. The girl, who would only identify herself as Rachel, told Fox News that she bares no ill-feeling towards Adam Smith, whose anti-Chick-fil-A video stunt backfired on him last week causing him to lose his job. 'I do forgive him. I think he realizes how bad it was to make that tape,' said Elizabeth after hearing a snippet of Smith’s subsequent apology video. 'I feel sorry for him and his family,...

    It is probably one of the hardest things a gay man will ever have to do and one has decided to share his heartbreaking experience with the world. 'James', 33, from Pennsylvania, uploaded a letter sent to him by his father five years ago on internet messaging board Reddit, shortly after he worked up the courage to come out to him. James reveals he called his father to tell him the news in August 2007: 'I finally built up the courage to tell my father I was gay.

    The 10th Annual Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade took place on Thursday in the biblical holy city, and attracted plenty of controversy, with protesters rallying against the event's purported harm to Jerusalem's "sanctity." More than 5,000 gays and lesbians and their supporters gathered in Jerusalem for the parade, the Times of Israel reported. They assembled in the downtown Independence Park before starting their march through the city. "We must work together to strengthen Jerusalem as a modern, open capital and to foster welcoming, inclusive communities across the Jewish world," said American philanthropist Lynn Schusterman, who made the opening remarks. "It is...

    [check link for the video] These are the people the mainstream media are rooting for. The man reading the Bible, I am sure, relates to Dan Cathy. Via Ann Sorock at Legal Insurrection A good question for these times, are these homosexuals racist? Speaking truth to power? Note the "accusation" written in chalk on the sidewalk telling us he's really gay; are they saying that there's something wrong with that? If I were into conspiracy theories I would suspect that Chick-fil-A hired a bunch of actors to stage this little play as a way of discrediting the same sex marriage...

    Picture this: an eleven-year-old child attends a public school. One day at school, her teacher overhears her talking to a friend. The child is telling her friend that her mom believes marriage should be between a man and a woman. Because of laws now in place, the teacher must get the principal, and the child is taken to the office. The mother is tracked down at her job and arrested. The child’s father is away on business and cannot get back immediately; there is no one around to take care of the young girl, so the child is put in...

    BURLINGTON, Mass. - "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" on Wednesday, with supporters flooding the chain's franchises around the country, was countered with "kiss-ins" by same-sex couples at assorted locations Friday, At the Burlington Mall, heavy security was ready. But only about a dozen protesters gathered to kiss and tell. They said Chick-fil-A customers they may want to take a closer look at where they're spending their money. "Over the past 10 years, Chick-fil-A has donated almost $5 million to organizations that work actively against gay people's rights -- some of them certified hate groups -- and that's the real reason we're out...

    SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: Answering the Toughest Questions Strong majorities of Americans oppose gay marriage. Supporters of SSM therefore seek to change the subject to just about anything: discrimination, benefits, homosexuality, gay rights, federalism, our sacred constitution. Our goal is simple: Shift the conversation rapidly back to marriage. Don’t get sidetracked. Marriage is the issue. Marriage is what we care about. Marriage really matters. It’s just common sense. I. THE MOST EFFECTIVE SINGLE SENTENCE: Extensive and repeated polling agrees that the single most effective message is: "Gays and Lesbians have a right to live as they choose, they don’t have the right...

    National Review ^ | 07/27/2012 | Betsy Woodruff
    When the story about the president of Chick-fil-A’s opposition to gay marriage broke, most responses were predictable. Eliot Spitzer went on Slate to call for a boycott, Mike Huckabee announced a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on Facebook, and the sun rose the next morning. But two people made disturbingly out-of-the-ordinary responses to the controversy: the mayor of Boston and a Chicago alderman, both of whom vowed to try to keep the fried-chicken chain from opening restaurants in the areas they oversee. As Alderman Proco Moreno put it to the Chicago Tribune, “If you are discriminating against a segment of the community,...

    The Chick-fil-A saga continues. It all started when president and COO Dan Cathy made statements against gay marriage. and now, things have ramped up into a national debate. Rev. Billy Graham, the legendary evangelical minister, has now entered the fray, coming to the aid of Chick-fil-A. The polarizing 93-year-old is against gay marriage, and earlier this year, he publicly endorsed a constitutional amendment to ban it in North Carolina. Graham has traditionally stayed away from "thorny social issues" for years, according to CNN, so this should raise some eyebrows. Here's the statement from Graham: “I want to express my support...

    The guy's a moron. End of story. “I can’t do that. That would be interference to his rights to go there,” Menino said, referring to company president Dan Cathy, who drew the mayor’s wrath by going public with his views against same-sex marriage.The mayor added: “I make mistakes all the time. That’s a Menino-ism.”The Herald first reported last week that Menino warned “it will be very difficult” for Chick-fil-A to obtain licenses for a restaurant in Boston...“I sent (the landlord) a letter, but that’s all. There’s no pressure by me to allow this place to be rented,” he said. The...

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor Thursday urged his party, and the nation, to guard against intolerance on issues ranging from gay marriage to the role of Muslims in the government, arguing the country’s diversity of opinion and acceptance are part of America’s basic fabric. “There can’t be some kind of monolithic opinion handed down from the government or a political party. I don’t think we’re monolithic beings,” Cantor, a Virginia Republican, said in an interview with BuzzFeed.

    Alan Chambers, president of Exodus International, which up until now had supported the so-called gay "cure," isn't fazed by a call from an evangelical scholar for his resignation. In fact, he's heard it many times before. "Someone's always calling for my resignation. It's nothing new," he told The Christian Post on Thursday. "So he can add his voice to the chorus of others whether it's gay activists or now a New Testament professor." But this time, the concern isn't centered so much on the practice of reparative therapy – which aims to change a person's sexual orientation from gay to...

    Deep-seated homosexual tendencies, which are found in a number of men and women, are also objectively disordered and, for those same people, often constitute a trial. Such persons must be accepted with respect and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. They are called to fulfil God's will in their lives and to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter[8]. In the light of such teaching, this Dicastery, in accord with the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, believes it necessary to state clearly that...
