    BOSTON, Massachusetts, December 21, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A Massachusetts judge sided with a practicing homosexual who sued a Catholic school for acting to uphold its Catholic identity. In a first of its kind case, Norfolk Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins ruled that Fontbonne Academy discriminated against Matthew Barrett for his sexual orientation and gender in violation of State law when it withdrew a job offer in 2013. Barrett had been offered the position of food services director at the all-girls Catholic prep school in Milton, MA, but the offer was later rescinded after Barrett had listed another man as his...
  • If People Vote the Wrong Way, Judges Change It: California's Proposition 8

    We have just seen the umpteenth example of "judicial imperialism, by which unelected judges through their verdicts supersede laws passed by elected representatives of the people". Proposition 8, a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage in California, was passed in November 2008 after the California state elections in which 52.24% of the electorate voted in its favour. So, here we are in the presence of legislation approved not by the elected representatives of the people but, more than that, by the people themselves. Two homosexual couples, Kris Perry and Sandy Stier, and Jeff Katami and Paul Zarrillo, after being...

    Even knowing that there are radicals in all movements, doesnt lessen the startling admission recently by lesbian journalist Masha Gessen. On a radio show she actually admits that homosexual activists are lying about their radical political agenda. She says that they dont want to access the institution of marriage; they want to radically redefine and eventually eliminate it. Here is what she recently said on a radio interview: Its a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that its a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. (F)ighting for gay...

    Supreme Court Decides Whether Of Not To Review Challenge Of California's Prop 8. This week the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on same Californias Prop 8 and a section of the Defense of Marriage Act which deals with benefits for same sex couples. Same sex marriage is front and center once again and Ive heard some interesting arguments on how supporting government involvement in defining marriage is a conservative ideal. During the Sunday morning talk show circuit, former Bush communications adviser took the moderate position emerging within the GOP against American Values Gary Bauer. Nicole Wallace tried to argue...

    Newser) These days, it isn't that weird for a baby to have two mothersbut how about two mothers and a father? One 23-month-old girl now legally has just such a family, after a Miami-Dade judge approved a settlement in which her biological mother, her mother's wife (the two married in Connecticut), and the man whose sperm made it all possible will all sign her birth certificate as parents, the Miami Herald reports. "We're creating entirely new concepts of families," says the dad's lawyer.

    Marriage plays a key role in strengthening civil society and reducing poverty. Families of married couples, for example, are approximately six times less likely to be poor than single-parent families. That suggests marriage is one way to reduce the growing dependence on government welfare programs.It also turns out that married couples think about the world quite differently from their single counterparts. When it comes to their political preferences, married couples tend to back Republicans while single men and women support Democrats. That was the case in 2008 and it's once again shaping up to be a dividing line in 2012.Pollster...

    It passed the House last week and the Senate tonight, and the governor’s signature is a fait accompli: The final vote by the state Senate ended a yearlong drama in Annapolis over the legislation, and marked the first time an East Coast state south of the Mason-Dixon line has supported gay nuptials…Despite one of the largest Democratic majorities in any state legislature, backers of gay marriage in Maryland had to overcome fierce opposition from blocks of African American lawmakers and those with strong Catholic and evangelical views to cobble together coalitions big enough to pass both chambers. The bill didn’t...

    A few years after Mitt Romney graduated from Harvard Business School, he returned to share a simple, timeworn lesson in an unusual way. Invited to give a presentation on balancing work and family, he began by telling students that they were like multinational corporations, recalled Clayton M. Christensen, who organized the event. You have the same question as General Electric, said Mr. Romney, then a young father and a management consultant. Your resources are your time and talent. How are you going to deploy them? He drew a chart called a growth-share matrix with little circles to represent various pursuits:...

On Tuesday Rosenthal posted the provocatively titled Herman Cain and the Liberal Media, where he broadcasts his alarm at how quickly the right wing jumps on an issue almost in unison, blames Republicans for injecting racial fears into modern-day politics with Willie Horton, and even claiming the phrase "community organizer" is racist when applied to Obama.

    Efforts to repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act are in full swing, as a major lawsuit advances, another lawsuit is filed, and a Senate panel meets soon to consider legislation to overturn the law. We are working hard to strike the blow that will end DOMA, said Mary Bonuato, civil rights project director at Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) and lead attorney in Gill v. Office of Personnel Management. Gill is one of several lawsuits filed by gay spouses who say their lives have been injured by DOMA, which defines marriage, for federal purposes, as the union...

    LEDYARD, NY, September 29, 2011 ( - Another town clerk in New York may lose her job for refusing to sign marriage licenses for same sex couples, the New York Times reports. Fifty-seven-year-old Rose Marie Belforti has been the town clerk in the small rural town of Ledyard, New York for ten years. When the state of New York legalized homosexual marriage this past summer, Belforti decided that she could not reconcile signing same-sex marriage licenses with her Christian faith. Instead, she decided to delegate the task to a deputy, who would issue such licenses by appointment. Now, a lesbian...

    When the New York state legislature rammed through a law legalizing same-sex marriage this last summer, countless New Yorkers disagreed with the decision. Among them were Christian town clerks who could not in good conscience sign marriage licenses for a union they consider sinful. Clauses were written in the law that supposedly protect clergy from being forced to act against their faith. However, such clauses do not apply to town clerks or any other government official. Clerks are told point blank, either accept the law, or resign. Town clerk Rose Marie Belforti of Ledyard, New York found out the hard...
  • Same-Sex Marriage Moving Toward the Mainstream

    One of the few issues on which opinion has moved left over the last few years is same-sex marriage. In 1996, Gallup found that Americans opposed it by a 68 percent to 27 percent margin. Last May, Gallup found Americans in favor by 53 percent to 45 percent. That's a huge change in 15 years. Other polls have shown similar movement. Pew Research reported last week that 45 percent favored same-sex marriage and 46 percent were opposed -- a dead heat. Pew polls in 2008 and 2009 found only 35 percent to 40 percent in favor. This is an issue...
  • Mitt Romney's Deception:His Stealth Promotion of Gay Rights and Gay Marriage

    Contrada details how Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney supported the homosexual and transgender agenda on same-sex marriage, sexual-radical indoctrination in the schools, and societal transformation while posing as a defender of the Constitution and traditional family values. Mitt Romney is no conservative, despite his attempts to appeal to that element in the Republican Party. He is an establishment fixer a preserver of the status quo at best, or a promoter of social liberal causes and institutions at worst. In Massachusetts, the establishment protected and advanced by Romney was uniquely committed to the radical homosexual and transgender agenda....
  • Newly appointed lesbian Mass. Supreme Court Judge speaks at fundraiser for radical gay group

    Two days after being formally confirmed to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, Judge Barbara Lenk (an "out" lesbian activist) was a featured speaker at a fundraiser for the radical Massachusetts LGBTQ ("Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer") Bar Association. The Massachusetts Code of Judicial Conduct forbids judges from being a speaker at an organization's fundraising event. Lenk's participation that evening was a clear -- and arrogant -- public violation of that Code. (A similar situation occurred when Justice Margaret Marshall was keynote speaker at the group's 1999 dinner. MassResistance--then Article 8 Alliance--Massachusetts News, and others brought this up as a...

    When President Obamas guests arrive at the White House on Wednesday for a Gay Pride reception just days after New York became the largest state in the country to make same-sex marriage legal they will no doubt be in a mood to celebrate. But for their host, who does not endorse same-sex marriage, it could be somewhat awkward. I think they are trying to share the joy, which is genuine on their part, without changing his position, Hilary Rosen, a prominent Democratic strategist, said of the White House. I dont think he can have it both ways here....

I am a proponent of marriage equality, and Im working very hard to make that a reality in New York, Mr. Cuomo told reporters on Friday as lawmakers prepared to go home for the weekend. I am also a proponent of religious freedom, and separation of church and state, so these...
