    Illinois Family Institute ^ | Thursday February 24, 2011 | Laura Higgins
    Attacks on religious liberty and freedom of conscience have started -- mere weeks after Governor Pat Quinn (D) signed the 'civil unions' bill into law -- just as we warned. While many conservatives think wisdom and political pragmatism dictate a "truce" on the social issues, liberals, including homosexuals, see this time as ripe for an all-out frontal assault on virtually every issue pertaining to homosexual practice. The most recent assault by those who view our side's cowardly truce as their golden opportunity is taking place in Illinois. Just one month after Governor Patrick Quinn signed the civil union bill into...
  • Don't Ask Don't Tell Repeal a Mistake

    Our 111th congress, in its lame duck session, has given America a Christmas present in the way of repeal of the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” law. Signing the repeal into law, President Obama said he’s “never been prouder.” From my point of view, I’m feeling increasingly like a minority in our country. Not because I’m black, but because I am a Christian. As a Christian, I believe in the truth of traditional morality as transmitted to us through our biblical sources. And I believe, along with George Washington, who stated clearly in his farewell address to the nation, that religion...

    Here's a modest proposal for liberals who say they support job creation: Stop smearing successful, law-abiding private companies whose values don't comport with yours. I'm looking at you, New York Times. Chick-fil-A is an American success story. Founded by Georgian entrepreneur Truett Cathy in 1946, the family-owned chicken-sandwich chain is one of the country's largest fast-food businesses. It employs some 50,000 workers across the country at 1,500 outlets in nearly 40 states and the District of Columbia. The company generates more than $2 billion in revenue and serves millions of happy customers with trademark Southern hospitality. So, what's the problem?...

    Daily Mail columnist Melanie Phillips has defended an article which suggested that gay people were becoming the “new McCarthyites”. Her column, published yesterday, implied that homosexuality would become “mandatory” and accused gay activists of trying to “brainwash” children. The article was written in response to plans to make lessons more inclusive of LGBT people and became a trending topic on Twitter. Ms Phillips told that she would always defend gay people against “true prejudice” but maintained that the gay rights lobby intends to destroy “normal sexual behaviour”. In an email, she wrote: “I’m sorry if what I wrote has...

    Until recently, Canada was considered part of the free world. But then political correctness got completely out of control: The Quebec Human Rights Tribunal has ordered a Montreal man to pay his gay neighbours $12,000 for allegedly subjecting them to "homophobic comments," death threats and invitations to fight, even though he was acquitted of the charges in a court of law nearly five years ago. The tribunal ruled that Gordon Lusk, a married father of two, must pay the "moral and punitive" damages after his neighbours, Theo Wouters and Roger Thibault, accused him of addressing them as "faggots" during a...

    Atlanta, Ga., Jan 17, 2011 / 02:12 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- On the observance of Martin Luther King Day, African-American leaders noted the slain civil rights figure’s Christian position on cultural issues like abortion and sexual ethics. Illinois religious and political leaders also organized to challenge the “hijacking” of the civil rights movement by homosexual political activists. Dr. Alveda King, full-time director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life and King’s niece, cited her uncle’s advice columns written for Ebony magazine in 1957 and 1958.“In advising men and women on questions of personal behavior 50 years ago, Uncle Martin sounded no...

    A Christian attorney and pro-family activist says the controversy surrounding a "transgender" student in Texas is a perfect example of what can be expected when the full weight of the new LGBT law is implemented in the military. Fox News recently reported on the uneasiness among a group of female students at Southwest Texas Junior College when they learned that a 51-year-old man who underwent a supposed sex change wanted to move into their dormitory. The female students said they were afraid because their potential dorm-mate is built like a man and can overpower any of them. On Friday, the...

    PORTLAND — Sen. Susan Collins this morning described for a group of business leaders from across New England her role in repealing the law banning gays in the military. (snip) In a 30-minute presentation, the Republican lawmaker described the 11th-hour maneuvering against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the waning days of 2010, her work to convince key Republican allies to support repeal and the challenge of opposing a close friend, renowned veteran, Sen. John McCain of Arizona. "It was exciting to help lead what I believe to be a historic change for our country, but boy it was not...

January 15, 2011 ( - It is illegal in Britain for guesthouse keepers to refuse to allow two homosexual men to share a bed in their homes, according to a ruling by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in a test case sponsored by the country’s leading homosexualist lobby group. Peter and Hazelmary Bull, devout Christians who own a guesthouse in a popular holiday resort in Cornwall, were ordered by the EHRC to pay a fine of £1,800 each to Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy, two men who had booked a room in...

    The 1980s song Money for Nothing by the British rock band Dire Straits has been deemed unacceptable for play on Canadian radio. In a ruling released Wednesday, the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council says the song contravenes the human rights clauses of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Code of Ethics and Equitable Portrayal Code. A listener to radio station CHOZ-FM in St. John's complained last year that the song includes the word “faggot” in its lyrics and is discriminatory to gays.

    At first glance, it appears Target, that Minnesota-based company with the cute white dog and bullseye as marketing ploys (and sales that best any department store) waffles more than the middling Minnesotan, Senator Al Franken. But a closer look proves it's really a greedy, narcissistic, free-market- loving business like any other with half the entrepreneurial spirit and twice the industrial brain. A few weeks ago, Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel surprised locals when he apologized to company leaders for making a $150,000 contribution to a conservative group, Minnesota Forward, which backs the Republican nominee for Governor, Tom Emmer. The apology was...

Click to enlarge. To nobody’s surprise, homosexual activist Evan Hurst of ‘Truth’ Wins Out supported fellow “gay” blogger Joe Jervis’ sophomoric hit-piece against AFTAH – which draws a crude link between this writer and the KKK. Jervis was just “stating fact,” protests Hurst, in writing that since the Klan opposed discrimination against a Christian student at Augusta State, and AFTAH also opposes this injustice, then the...

    Officials in Indianapolis are turning up the heat on a bakery that refused to take an order from a student group seeking rainbow-colored cupcakes for next month's National Coming Out Day. A spokesman for Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said city officials are conducting an inquiry into the bakery, Just Cookies, which declined to take the order last week from a diversity group at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), which ordered the cupcakes for Oct. 11. "The city's position is, it's the city's market, it's a public place," mayoral spokesman Robert Vane told "There is no litmus test for buying...

    Gawker may be the last place you'd expect to see writers expressing righteous indignation over ethical breaches, particularly journalistic ones. But on Wednesday, the site's Hamilton Nolan slammed Lavender Magazinefor outing anti-gay Minneapolis pastor Tom Brock as a gay man. Lavender's sin, according to Nolan, was not about pulling back the curtain on hypocrisy, which has come to be considered justified over the years, but that the reporter went undercover to a 12-step meeting of gay men to get the story.

    This is a troubling story. There are support groups of all kinds. Groups that help you stay sober or drug free. There are groups that support you if you battle gambling addiction or even porn addiction. The one thing that all these groups have in common is a bond of privacy. What gets talked about in the group stays in the group. But what if what you are battling something that others don't want you battling. Does your privacy go out the window? A Lutheran Pastor who is opposed to gay clergy suffers himself from same-sex attraction. But this Pastor...

    Together with my good friend and occasional courtroom adversary David Boies, I am attempting to persuade a federal court to invalidate California's Proposition 8—the voter-approved measure that overturned California's constitutional right to marry a person of the same sex.... Many of my fellow conservatives have an almost knee-jerk hostility toward gay marriage. This does not make sense, because same-sex unions promote the values conservatives prize. Marriage is one of the basic building blocks of our neighborhoods and our nation. At its best, it is a stable bond between two individuals who work to create a loving household and a social...

They strike at the very foundation of human morality, influencing the family and promoting a morally permissive outlook: divorce, free love, abortion, contraconception, the fight against life in its initial phases and in its final phase, the manipulation of life. This program is supported by enormous financial resources, not only in individual countries, but also on a worldwide scale....

Attorneys David Boies and Theodore B. Olsen, however, are contesting this issue in court. Yesterday, the judge allowed Boies and Olsen to submit e-mails they obtained between the director of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the bishops. Allowing such communication in...
