  • Homosexuals Sue Christian Bed & Breakfast Owner for Refusing 'Civil Union' Ceremony

    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...

    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 PinkNews.co.uk 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...

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...

    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.

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.

    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?

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...

    On Monday, Jan. 11, U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker will put the people of California on trial for voting against gay marriage. The case will be a show trial in a kangaroo court. I don't say that lightly of any federal judge, but Judge Walker's extraordinary bias has already been flagrantly on display. Take the trial itself. The constitutionality of Proposition 8 is not really a matter for a trial of fact. It's a question of law. But Judge Walker ordered one anyway. Why? Ordinarily a trial judge's rulings of fact cannot be questioned by higher courts. So the more...

Without getting into the merits of Proposition 8 or the legal challenges to it, I agree with Whelan that it seems highly unusual for a judge to authorize televised proceedings for this particular case as part of some new “pilot” project to see how televised proceedings work. Surely if there were going to be a test run of a new idea, it should be...

BUT IN THE 1960’S IT WAS THEN CONDITIONED. The condition of homosexuality was redefined as a condition rather than an act. It did not change, it was just redefined. What really happened here was while you can criticize an act and you can even say it is a criminal act, how do you criticize a condition that someone suffers with? How can you criticize the act that one commits who...

    A pro-family leader says it will only be a matter of time before Vermont's homosexual "marriage" law will be challenged in court. Vermont's new law allowing homosexuals to "marry" contains strong religious exemptions. It states that members of the clergy are not required to "solemnize any marriage" and that the refusal to do so "shall not create any civil claim or cause of action." The law also states that any religious organization within the state will be exempt from providing goods, services, and benefits if those items are requested as part of a solemnization or celebration of a marriage that...
