    LOS ANGELES – A graduate student with alleged connections to a radical environmentalist group was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of firebombing and vandalizing dozens of sport utility vehicles, authorities said Wednesday. Billy Cottrell, 23, a physics student at California Institute of Technology, was indicted in connection with vandalism that damaged or destroyed about 125 vehicles at car dealerships and homes in the San Gabriel Valley last August. The indictment was returned Tuesday and announced Wednesday. Cottrell appeared Wednesday in court where a judge ordered him to remain held without bond. The indictment charged him with one...

    Seeing Rosie O’Donnell condemn President Bush just after she “married” her girlfriend, Kelli Carpenter, was bizarre in a tiresome sort of way. O’Donnell claimed, “We were inspired to come here by the sitting president and the vile and vicious and hateful comments he made.”If O’Donnell had any sense of humor or irony, she would look at herself and say, “Gee, for such a tolerant, open-minded person, I sure do condemn and vituperate an awful lot, especially on what should have been the happiest day of my life.”Maybe I’m some sort of pervert, but I don’t recall bearing anyone in the...

Russian Tatyana Pozdnyakova, 49, defended her title as the elite women's winner of the LA Marathon with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 30 minutes and 16 seconds. Pozdnyakova won the battle of the sexes, besting male winner David Kirui of Kenya by about four minutes. Kirui finished the race with an unofficial time of 2 hours, 13 minutes and 40 seconds.

    Walter Cronkite is doing a lot of talking these days, what with writing a syndicated column and working for several TV networks, and he recently spoke with the San Francisco Chronicle, disseminating some of his "Moses-like rhetoric" on everything from the Christian right to President Bush to Janet Jackson's anatomy. Chronicle interviewers asked Cronkite to what he attributes his 63-year long marriage, and he quipped, "I do think one of the factors was we were of different sexes." As laughter filled the room, he added, "That doesn't mean I wouldn't have been happy to be married to several friends I...

He blames his problems with his filth on the air on the Bush administration and "hopes that Americans realize that Kerry would do just as good a job as president as Bush and we need to clean house so that his "program" can continue to be on...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- President George Bush urged Americans Friday to behave properly in the debate over gay marriage despite the sensitivity of the issue. "This is a sensitive debate and it is important people hold true to their beliefs without condemning anybody else, so therefore I call upon all sides in the debate to conduct themselves with dignity, and honor and respect," Bush said. "But this is a debate the nation must have and the people's voice must be heard." Tuesday, after weeks on the sidelines, Bush declared support for a constitutional amendment to enshrine heterosexual marriage and...

    © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com From his perch at the current ground zero in the battle over traditional marriage, San Francisco-based syndicated talk-show star Michael Savage warns one of America's "last institutions" is under attack from radical homosexuals with an agenda that mirror's revolutionary communists. "Gay marriage is an oxymoron," Savage said in comments e-mailed to WND. "It is a mockery of marriage by radical homosexuals who wish to destroy one of the last cornerstones of our culture. Those who have studied the communist agenda understand very well that Karl Marx himself derided marriage and family." He quoted from Marx's Communist Manifesto, which said,...

    Manchester Union Leader ^ | February 22, 2004 | Bernadette Malone
    ONE QUESTION for the Rev. Gene Robinson, the nation’s first openly gay Episcopal priest (now bishop) who cautions those of us opposed to same-sex marriage: “Don’t waste your time and energy defending marriage from something that doesn’t threaten it.” Doesn’t polygamy threaten marriage? Would the Rev. Robinson rise to defend polygamy, and perform wedding ceremonies for a man and two women, or a woman and two men (polyandry)? Because if same-sex marriage doesn’t threaten real marriage, why should polygamy? There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the two institutions when you study them. This comparison is not intended to...

    Dateline NBC just now running an hour long special, asking "how did Jesus really die". Is anyone watching this? It's an outrageous "hit piece", portraying Jesus as nothing more than a controversial, politically motivated "Jewish preacher" trying to challenge the rule of the day. One "biblical scholar" actually just equated Jesus' statements about "tearing down this temple" to a Terrorist threat!! Apparently failing to stop Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" movie, the liberal elite are now trying to change the story itself. (Not that any outside of the far left will buy into the attempt). NBC (aka "the...

The week's activities, sponsored by Students for a Sexually Aware Campus (read: students for free love), included a series of guest speakers approved by Asst. Dean Edgar Letriz. Among these speakers were porn star Devinn Lane and history professor Naomi Rogers, who lectured on the history of the vibrator.

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California will not accept the marriage licenses granted to thousands of same-sex couples in San Francisco because the city created its own form to remove such terms as "bride" and "groom," a state official said on Wednesday. "There is a statewide form that every county has to use for marriage applications. If we receive application forms that are different from the single form used throughout the state, we will not accept them," said Nicole Kasabian Evans, a spokeswoman for the Health and Human Services Agency. Meanwhile, President Bush joined a chorus of those opposing San Francisco's...

    Bernalillo, New Mexico-AP -- A county clerk in New Mexico says it has nothing to do with "politics or morals." Sandoval County Clerk Victoria Dunlap says the county plans to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples. She made the decision after asking for an opinion from the county attorney, who said New Mexico law isn't clear on the issue. He also says refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples could open the county to legal action. State law defines marriage as a civil contract between contracting parties. It doesn't mention gender. The issue of gay marriage has stirred controversy...

    To: Califonia Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco has violated California law by Marrying Same-sex couples in San Francisco. It is patently unlawful to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples. Section 308.5 of the California Family Code plainly defines a valid marriage as being limited to one man and one woman. Furthermore, California Penal Code section 115 prohibits the knowing procurement of any false or forged instrument to be filed or recorded in any public office, making such an act a felony punishable by up to three (3) years in prison. The Mayor of San Francisco is...

    SAN FRANCISCO - After sanctioning more than 2,700 gay marriages in the past week, the city said Thursday it is suing the state of California, challenging its ban on same-sex marriages on constitutional grounds. City Attorney Dennis Herrera planned to file the suit in the afternoon, said his spokesman, Matt Dorsey. Two judges already are considering challenges from conservative groups seeking to halt the marriage spree that began last Thursday. The city's lawsuit asks that those cases be consolidated into one case. The city is asking Superior Court Judge James Warren to declare unconstitutional two sections of the California Family...

    Mayor Daley said Wednesday he would have "no problem" with County Clerk David Orr issuing marriage licenses to gay couples -- and Orr said he's open to a San Francisco-style protest if a consensus can be built. "They're your doctors, your lawyers, your journalists, your politicians," the mayor said. "They're someone's son or daughter. They're someone's mother or father. . . . I've seen people of the same sex adopt children, have families. [They're] great parents. "Some people have a difference of opinion -- that only a man and a woman can get married.

    Since the State of California through the Mayor of San Francisco, city officials, state judges and other state authorities have seen fit to flagrantly violate their own state laws regarding fraudulant marriage licenses, I think it would be prudent if other states passed laws not to recognize ANY California marriage license issued Feb. 12, 2004 or later. San Francisco's fraud does not fall under protection of the full faith and credit clause of the U.S. Constitution, since it is after all, illegal. We'd put some fire under California's feet if other states refused to recognize the legality of their marriage...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) said Wednesday he was "troubled" by gay weddings in San Francisco and by legal decisions in Massachusetts that could clear the way for same-sex marriage. But he declined to say whether he is any closer to backing a constitutional ban on such vows. "I have watched carefully what's happening in San Francisco, where licenses were being issued, even though the law states otherwise," Bush said. "I have consistently stated that I'll support law to protect marriage between a man and a woman. Obviously these events are influencing my decision." "I am watching...

    The New York Times affirmative action diversity scandal demonstrates much more than the folly of the Left’s reverse racism and the top management’s arrogance. It is an example of the Left’s instrumental treatment of truth, which is the inescapable consequence of their worship at the altar of absolute equality of condition. Absolute equality is of course the utopian vision of the Left, which scorns the equality before the law that is the glory of America’s Constitution and of free government. Because the Left’s vision – or, to put it more accurately, obsession and fetish – is contradicted by the reality...

    OTTAWA, April 11, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a shocking official statement, the Catholic Women's League of Canada (CWL) has demanded that the federal government approve of legal homosexual civil unions. The statement flies in the face of repeated directions from Pope John Paul II which have condemned legal recognition of such sexual unions which are considered by the church to be unnatural and harmful. The statements came in a presentation to the House of Commons Justice Committee, which is conducting hearings on same-sex 'marriage'.

    "Gay" activists are pushing an agenda in Canadian schools aimed to have students, teachers and principals "celebrate" homosexual and transgendered people, reports the Vancouver Sun. Two men leading the charge – Murray Warren and Peter Cook – filed a complaint with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal to compel teachers to deliver positive messages about homosexuals and transgendered people in every subject, in every classroom. The complaint alleges discrimination by the education ministry for ignoring calls for homophobia and "heterosexism" to be addressed in the classroom. "People want to see us [teachers] address homophobia across the board," Warren, a Coquitlam...
