    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Filed at 8:06 p.m. ET NEW YORK (AP) -- New York's first diagnosed case of highly drug-resistant HIV in a person never before treated for the virus is ``a wake up call'' to anyone who has unprotected sex, the city's health commissioner said Friday. The patient, a man in his mid-40s who had unprotected sex with other men, contracted a strain of HIV that is ``difficult or impossible to treat and which appears to progress rapidly to AIDS,'' said the Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Frieden. The diagnosis ``is a wake up call to men who have...

CNS reports on the clarification: In a Jan. 26 statement, Archbishop Flynn said he met in mid-December with Cardinal Francis Arinze, head of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, to discuss "the difficult pastoral situation" of Rainbow Sash. Cardinal Arinze "did not in fact suggest an immediate change to the policy in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis," Archbishop Flynn said in his statement. "However, he did clearly...

    Disabled vet claims gay bias in tax bill NEWARK - A gay, disabled veteran of two wars claims he is being denied a property tax break afforded straight veterans because he owns his home with his longtime partner, not a wife. Louis Paul Hennefeld and his companion contend they are being treated unfairly by their hometown of Montclair because they received half the tax break that would be granted to a similarly disabled straight man and his wife.The case, which appears to be the first of its kind in New Jersey, is an example of marriage-based discrimination, according to one...

    Dropping 'Gay Bomb' on Our Own ChildrenWASHINGTON, January 17, 2005 ( - In 1994, under the Clinton administration, officials of the Pentagon rejected a proposal to introduce chemical agents that would encourage homosexual activity in enemy troops. Declassified documents recently released under Freedom of Information requests, have revealed a proposal from a laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio for funding of non-lethal chemical weapons research to adversely affect “discipline and morale in enemy units.” “One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior,” said the document. Ironically, since...

But this event’s sponsors reveal the agenda behind banning it. “There is a special place in hell for people like you!” These words were directed at me by a teacher during this past summer’s National Education Association (NEA) convention in Washington, D.C. This delegate to the NEA convention made his prediction in response to my presence at the NEA’s Ex-Gay Educators’ Caucus booth in the convention exhibit hall. His cheery salutation caught me off-guard given the message of tolerance and acceptance I had been hearing around the exhibit hall....

    UPDATE: Homosexual Attorneys from Justice Department Advise Philadelphia Police On Arresting Christians One Internet news service says not to expect an investigation because of the involvement of the Justice Department homosexual attorneys A few days ago I wrote you about the situation in Philadelphia in which four Christians were arrested. They are charged with eight crimes, including three felonies: possession of instruments of crime (a bullhorn), ethnic intimidation (saying that homosexuality is a sin), and inciting a riot (reading from the Bible some passages relating to homosexuality) despite the fact that no riot occurred. They face a possible 47 years...

    Homosexual attorneys from the U.S. Justice Department Civil Rights Division not only attended a large homosexual event in Philadelphia last year, but they advised police on the scene who arrested 11 Christian protesters, says a source within the agency. According to the Justice Department employee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, a number of agency attorneys from Washington, D.C., attended the October "OutFest" event, and, he says, they therefore are not likely to take up the cause of the five criminally charged Christians who believe Philadelphia officials violated their civil rights. As WorldNetDaily reported, on Oct. 10, the group...

    In a clash that pits Catholic teachings against shifting values of American society, a group of parishioners and parents has accused Orange County church leaders of defying Pope John Paul II by allowing a gay couple to enroll their two boys in a diocese school. Eighteen people signed a letter last month demanding that St. John the Baptist School in Costa Mesa accept only families that sign a pledge to live by Catholic doctrine — a move that effectively would kick the boys out of school. The church regards homosexual acts as sinful, and in 2003 the pontiff condemned marriage...

    In a recent letter to a parishioner addressing the scandal over former Merced pastor Father Jean Lastiri (St. Patrick's), Fresno Bishop John Steinbock writes: "I have stated publicly that what is important of any priest, whether he has a heterosexual or homosexual orientation, is that he is living a celibate life style, faithful to the Lord Jesus and the teaching of the church, and then indeed he can be a good priest." Last summer, Bishop Steinbock removed Father Lastiri from St. Patrick's after it was discovered the priest was allegedly soliciting genital favors on a homosexual website. [See "Baca and...

    COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Some parents and parishioners have accused the Roman Catholic diocese in Orange County of violating church doctrine by allowing a gay couple to enroll their children in a church school. The group demanded that St. John the Baptist School in Costa Mesa accept only families that pledge to abide by Catholic teachings, the Los Angeles Times reported in Sunday's editions. Church doctrine opposes gay relationships and adoption by same-sex couples. "The teachings of the church seem to have been abandoned," John R. Nixon told the Times.

    Homosexuality is taking the world by storm. Open a paper, turn on the tube or take in a movie and homosexuality is where it's at. And this immense homosexual tsunami threatens to engulf countless lives, yet hardly a whisper signals the impending damage and loss that hides behind its swell. "It's 'in' to be 'out' these days," trumpets USA-Today (June 4, 2003). Actor Richard Chamberlain just announced what we already knew: He's "gay." "All My Children," hosted daytime television's first lesbian kiss while the wildly clever "Will and Grace" remains an evening favorite. A new dating show "Boy Meets Boy"...

    Chemical castration of a man with AIDS convicted of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old boy at Lake Tahoe has been upheld by a state court. Rudolph Christopher Steele, 43, of South Lake Tahoe had appealed the El Dorado County Superior Court sentence for his 2003 conviction by a jury on sodomy and oral copulation charges. He contended the hormone suppression therapy - dubbed "chemical castration" - that the court ordered he undergo when paroled was improper. The state Board of Prison Terms is the agency to impose such conditions, Steele argued. Steele also said the hormone suppression might interfere with his...
