  • Exposed: The Myth That Psychiatry Has Proven That Homosexual Behavior Is Normal

    Traditional Values Coalition ^ | Friday, July 16, 2004 11:54:50 AM | Unknown
    In 1973, The American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed homosexuality as a mental disorder from the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-II). This decision was a significant victory for homosexual activists and they have continued to claim that the APA based their decision on new scientific discoveries that proved that homosexual behavior is normal and should be affirmed in our culture. This is false and part of numerous homosexual urban legends that have infiltrated every aspect of our culture. The removal of homosexuality as a mental disorder has given homosexual activists credibility in the culture, and they have...

    Former Dallas Cowboys great Michael Irvin appears shirtless on the cover of this month's gay men's magazine Out and discusses his passion for equality issues. Irvin publicly acknowledges that the impetus for taking a stand comes from his relationship with his gay brother, Vaughn, who died of stomach cancer in 2006. Irvin had not spoken publicly about his brother previously, according to the magazine.

    approved some of the toughest anti-tobacco rules in the nation Thursday, extinguishing cigar bars and hookah bars and ending the sales of tobacco in pharmacies and on college campuses. The Boston Public Health Commission, however, decided to give the bars 10 years before they would have to close, doubling the original proposed grace period for the establishments. Even then, the bars could seek an extension for another 10 years.

    California Catholic Daily ^ | Aug. 7, 2008 | staff
    Campaign for Children and Families (CCF), a leading California organization protecting parents' rights and children's innocence, condemns the passage of AB 2567, which will instruct all California public schools to "conduct suitable commemorative exercises" in support of the anti-religious, sexual-anarchy agenda of the late San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk. Yesterday, the California Assembly passed AB 2567 on a 43 to 26 vote, Democrats for, Republicans silently against. Earlier this week, AB 2567 passed the California State Senate on a 22-13 vote, Democrats for, Republicans against. AB 2567 now goes to Governor Schwarzenegger, whose position is unknown. "If signed into law,...
  • Pedophilia and the Pope

    I can understand why nearly three-quarters of U.S. Catholics say they approve of their new Pope, Benedict XVI. He is a deep thinking Pontiff who, like John Paul II before him, holds fast to refreshingly strong moral convictions. When he said he was ashamed of the existence of pedophile priests and their subsequent abuse of young boys, unlike the scoffers, I believe him. It’s true that many Catholic leaders, to their disgrace, ignored early reports and initiated a cover-up. If financial retribution can ever repay such betrayal, many archdioceses have been bankrupted by the scandal. The church, however slow, has...

    NJ gay group says civil unions are unsatisfactory Home News Tribune Online 02/19/08 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS TRENTON: Gay activists want same-sex marriage rights in New Jersey by year's end. Steven Goldstein, chairman of gay rights group Garden State Equality, said Tuesday a state report that finds civil unions create a second-class status for gay couples boosts their claims that the unions don't work. The report's findings were officially released Tuesday but were first reported Saturday by The Associated Press. The law took effect a year ago and was meant to give same-sex couples marriage equality without the title. The report...

    Ther American Prowler ^ | 12/1/2005 | Patrick O'Hannigan
    Andrew Sullivan is apoplectic. "If the guiding mantra of the last Pope was 'Be Not Afraid!', the lodestar of the current one is, arguably, the opposite," Sullivan asserts. Not one to content himself with smirking when lying presents another opportunity for righteous indignation, Sullivan also accuses Benedict XVI of passing malicious sentence on the life and work of heroic priests like New York's Fr. Mychal Judge, who was killed by falling debris while comforting others in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on 9/11/01. What's giving Sullivan the vapors is the November 29 release by the Vatican's Congregation for Catholic...

    Review by Sandra AlexanderThis book reveals where the homosexual movement is taking us, with its "six stages" agenda and attacks on Christian values. We have now entered the fourth stage, where homosexuals are silencing opposing views everywhere. In the Introduction to their book, The Homosexual Agenda, Mr. Sears and Mr. Osten ask the question, “How far down the road have homosexual activists taken us toward their goal of unbridled sexual behavior and silencing of the church?” (p. 14) They then describe the four stages which lead to the moral demise of a culture, stating that the homosexuals, after quickly passing...

    The Gay and Lesbian Days celebrated in Kraków has aroused heated discussion in the city and somewhat divided local society. The main bone of contention is today's gay and lesbian demonstration in the Old Town, which according to the organizers is to show gays and lesbians that they do have equal rights. Apart from homosexuals, Amnesty International, various feminist organizations and environmentalists will join the march organized as part of ‘the Culture of Tolerance' festival. However, while gay rights has been accepted as a tenet of modern liberal democracy in the EU for many years, Mlodziez Wszechpolska of the Polish...

    GAY BISHOP-ELECT DRAWS CHARLES INTO CHURCH ROW By Jonathan Petre, Religious Affairs Correspondent (Filed: 01/11/2003) On the eve of his consecration as Anglicanism's first openly homosexual bishop - an event which threatens to tear the worldwide Church apart - Bishop-elect Gene Robinson has drawn the Prince of Wales into the controversy. He said he did not relish the argument over his election and that it was his desire that the Anglican Communion would hold together. Gene Robinson will be consecrated as the Bishop of New Hampshire tomorrow But he told The Telegraph that the Church had to modernise its views...

    The Miami Herald ^ | 7/7/03 | Peter Wallsten
    In his quest for a seat in the U.S. Senate, Rep. Mark Foley has rankled a group that is barely covered in most elections: nudists. Foley, of West Palm Beach, has hit the national TV and radio talk-show circuit in recent weeks to bash a Tampa-area summer camp not unlike most camps -- except that the boys and girls, ages 11-18, are naked. Foley, a Republican hoping to replace Sen. Bob Graham, says that letting naked teenagers play together is immoral and potentially dangerous. But ''naturists'' who say the camp exposes their children to a perfectly healthy and wholesome education...

    NOW THAT THE Supreme Court has ruled on the Texas sodomy statute, we need to revisit Rick Santorum's comments about homosexuality in that now-famous interview with the Associated Press. Rick Santorum was right in anticipating a very political decision. Three months ago he said this: "We have laws in states, like the one at the Supreme Court right now, that has sodomy laws and they were there for a purpose. Because, again, I would argue, they undermine the basis tenets of our society and the family. If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within...

    Stockton record ^ | Friday, June 13, 2003 | Will Shuck
    SACRAMENTO -- With fewer than 100 hours before the deadline to adopt a state budget, members of the Assembly on Thursday argued over who should be honored as a father on Father's Day. Republicans either withheld their support or voted against a resolution honoring fathers, specifically "nontraditional" dads. Stockton Assemblyman Greg Aghazarian said Democrats deliberately left dads like him -- married to the mother of his children -- out of the bill. Alan Nakanishi of Lodi went so far as to call it "a homosexual bill," a charge the author said couldn't "be farther from the truth." Nakanishi abstained from...
