    DETROIT, June 30, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) - Non-Western countries are getting fed up with the spread of the gay agenda in their countries. This has led one Russian lawmaker to promise that he will have the rainbow flag banned from his country after seeing it plastered all over social media. Following the U.S. Supreme Court's legalization of so-called gay marriage, he says, "[T]he United States must have gone completely mad and now its gay delirium is threatening the entire civilized world." "Billions of U.S. dollars will flood into gay propaganda all over the world, creating the grounds for 'rainbow revolutions,'" he...

    Add another to the list of gay-friendly advertisers — Chobani. The Greek yogurt company has released a romantic, undeniably hot commercial featuring a same-sex couple. Like Wells Fargo’s recent commercial, a lesbian couple is featured, but Chobani has added a lot more sizzle. A beautiful woman sits in bed and licks the yogurt from her spoon. She tickles the foot of her partner, whose back is to the camera, and then hops out of the bed, with only a sheet, loosely draped around her nude body. The beckoning blue sea is just outside the window. Then comes the reveal. The...

Part of their new #HowWeFamily campaign, which supposedly "aims to celebrate the diversity of modern families," the commercial features a lesbian couple posing for a prom photo and two homosexual men posing as fathers while holding a baby. "When did you first fight to be considered a family?" a voiceover asks. "When you fell in love? When you got married? When you had kids? Family isn't defined by who you love, but how."...

Tallywackers says their restaurant is a “bar, restaurant and entertainment destination for everyone. There is eye-candy — for boys and girls — great food and a really good time.” Just as the “Hooters” name is a play on a euphemism for women’s breasts, “Tallywackers” is a not-so-subtle nod to men’s genitals. Owner Rodney Duke told the hosts of the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show last month that “he has pondered for 10 years why there wasn’t a male equivalent of this type of...

It follows a running joke in the show which hints the pair might be closer than friends, especially by landlady Mrs Hudson, played by Una Stubbs, 77, who often makes references to their sexuality.

    When Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones tweeted "horrible" in regards to Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on ESPN after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday, it wasn't a moment the NFL, Sam, the Dolphins or anyone wanted. But make no mistake, it allowed the NFL an opportunity to send a strong message: If you have public and negative comments about Sam and his sexuality, you will be punished and shamed. Jones, a second-year strong safety who had 10 tackles in 16 games last year, tweeted "omg" right after ESPN showed Sam's reaction to being drafted. According to...

    Once Michael Sam is drafted in the NFL, the Missouri defensive end will be judged strictly on whether he can play and whether he can help his team win. Everything else—even that he’s gay—will be trivial. As the first openly homosexual player to enter the draft, Sam could face scrutiny unlike any player before him. But many of the greatest players and coaches in football history don’t believe he’ll be subjected to any hatred, harassment, discrimination or bullying by teammates. “I don’t think he’ll have any problem in the locker room. I don't think he’ll have any problems on the...

Just hours before Collins' coming out statement was published by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday, the NFL - America's most popular sport, with $9 billion a year in revenue - released a ‘workplace conduct statement' regarding sexual orientation.

Whether it’s the Sun Belt Conference’s leading scorer or someone else, the athlete who makes sports history by coming out will likely be sought after by companies that want to appeal to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population, whose annual buying power last year was estimated at...

    Libertarian Internet impresario Matt Drudge, who delights in mischief above all else, is no doubt enjoying the sh*tstorm he created Wednesday by splashing the N-word seven times in bold capital letters (spelled out except for substituting “*” for the “i”) at the top of his Drudgereport.com homepage. DRUDGE REPORT Matt Drudge from The Drudge Report. (Michael Caulfield/AP) Other than going for shock and awe, Drudge’s purpose wasn’t entirely clear, although he linked his repetitively epithetic headline to a film review of Quentin Tarantino’s latest violent mockudrama, Django Unchained, about a mid-19th Century former slave (played by Jamie Foxx) who wreaks...

  • (Video) Disney Exposes Children to Lewd Homosexual Activity on Daytime Broadcast TV

    In a disgraceful breach of fiduciary responsibility to shareholders, Disney Execs allowed their television network to willfully and premeditatedly expose millions of children and families to two men performing homosexual acts with one another. This was in the middle of the afternoon's highly rated college football game coverage on Thanksgiving Weekend. This is a clear example of incompetent executives abusing shareholder assets, undermining the reputation of the brand and the trust that the word Disney used to convey. This was all committed for the selfish desire of advancing their own lascivious agenda...(video)

    A San Francisco couple is waiting to find out if the U.S. Supreme Court will take their case challenging the 1996 law that prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages. Karen Golinski and Amy Cunninghis got married during the brief window in 2008 when gay and lesbian couples could tie the knot in California. Golinski immediately tried to add her wife to her employer-sponsored health care plan. But because she is married to another woman and works for the U.S. government, her otherwise routine request was denied...

    The issue of whether Americans should approve "same-sex" marriage continues to be debated heatedly in the 2012 election cycle. President Obama has "evolved" on the issue to the place where he supports "same-sex" marriage, making no distinction between the time-honored institution of marriage as being between one man and one woman and a relationship between two people of the same sex. The issue emerged recently in a September 20th debate in the U.S. senatorial contest in Virginia between George Allen (R) and Tim Kaine (D). Former Governor Kaine, when asked about the issue, couched his answer in terms of civil...

    Today I went out into the field here in Chicago looking to talk to some of the striking teachers but no one in a red-shirt was anywhere to be found (or, if they were wearing one, they had nothing to do with the teachers’ union strike). A journalist friend of mine asked me to nose around and see if I could uncover anything about slain Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was rumored to be gay. A former “roommate” of Stevens by the name of Austin Tichenor lives and works in Chicago and while making calls to friends of mine in the...

    <p>The show about a gay couple who want a baby and the surrogate they hire is generally sweeter than co-creator Ryan Murphy's other shows.</p> <p>"The New Normal," which premieres Tuesday on NBC, concerns Bryan and David (Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha), a gay couple who want a baby; Goldie (Georgia King), the young woman they hire as a surrogate mother; Goldie's quirky-precocious 8-year-old daughter, Shania (the invaluable Bebe Wood); and her problematic grandmother, Jane (Ellen Barkin).</p>
