  • Satanic Cult Pledges Funds to Support Abortion Rights

    Breitbart ^ | July 29, 2015 | By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
    A devil-worshipping group calling itself the Satanic Temple has been working to raise funds to promote abortion-on-demand and to counter legal efforts such as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and 20-week abortion bans. A highly publicized ceremonial unveiling of the satanic figure of Baphomet in Detroit Saturday, an event billed as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” sold $25 and $75 tickets, the proceeds of which will be used to support the reproductive rights legal action fund, according to a Temple spokeswoman. The cult has also set up a donation website with Indiegogo “to challenge arbitrary, insulting abortion...

    US leader stands accused of the same bullying he himself denounced on eve of African trip. President Barack Obama’s cajoling of Kenyan leaders to accept “LGBT rights” has met with a notable backlash from African bishops and other state and religious leaders, with one African bishop drawing attention to the hypocrisy of Obama's LGBT agenda. Obama arrived in Kenya for a two-day visit on Friday, his first visit to his father’s homeland as US president, before heading to Ethiopia on Sunday for a one-day visit. At a joint press conference held with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday, Obama...

    President Obama said that if he could run for a third term he thinks he would win, while calling for African leaders to adhere to term limits during a historic speech before the African Union. “I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t,” Obama said in Ethiopia on Tuesday. ” There’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving, but the law’s the law.”

    When the Supreme Court ruling came down in late June, extending the right to marriage to members of the same sex in all 50 states, some observers felt that the Catholic Church was fairly immune to any requirements that it would have to allow same-sex weddings before her altars. Now, though, calls for the Church to allow such nuptials are bubbling up. How far they will get is another question. The issue was raised Tuesday by a report in the New York Times that featured “gay and transgender Catholics” who are making noises with the approaching visit to these shores...

Halfway through the interview, Michael Smerconish affirms the lesbians’ view that they are the ‘real embodiment’ of Catholic teaching. Cuz that makes a lot of sense. Of course, people who get their understanding of Christian doctrine from making fun of televangelists while smoking pot in college and from snarky criticisms on the Daily Show aren’t the best scholars when...

    OBAMA COMPARES KENYA’S ANTI-GAY LAWS TO JIM CROW President Obama and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta clashed at a joint press conference in the African state during his official visit on Sunday: Obama harshly criticized Kenya’s record on issues related to homosexuality. “When you start treating people differently not because of any harm they are doing to anybody, but because they are different, that’s the path whereby freedoms begin to erode,” he said. “Bad things start to happen.” The President also compared Kenya’s laws to Jim Crow-era segregationist policies.

    “Son of Kenya,” Barack Obama, proved once again that his patience with people, nations, and world leaders that disagree with his view of the world registers a big fat zero on the liberal Tolerance Meter.  When Obama finds out anyone (other than a Muslim) disagrees with his social policy focus, it becomes his personal mission to convince them otherwise. And if the mere awesomeness of his presence fails to change minds, Obama will attempt to humiliate his ideological adversaries into submission by getting in their face. For example, after Barack ‘LGBTQ’ Obama was specifically asked by the Evangelical Alliance...

    President Barack Obama, wrapping up a landmark trip to Kenya, has told Kenyans that there is "no limit to what you can achieve" but said they had to deepen democracy, tackle corruption and end exclusion based on gender or ethnicity. Obama addressed an audience of several thousand packed into an indoor arena in Nairobi on Sunday, before heading to Ethiopia, the second stop on his East Africa tour. The US president, whose father was born and died in Kenya, talked of his own experience and Kenya's in the five decades since independence. "I'm here as president of a country that...

Standing by Obama’s side at a joint press conference here in front of the Kenyan state house, Kenyatta repeated...

    If you can't beat members of the "birther" movement, join 'em. That's the approach President Obama took on Saturday night in Kenya, his father's homeland, when he made a wisecrack about his birthplace — which suspicious critics have harped on for years. "Some of my critics back home might be suggesting I'm here to look for my birth certificate," Obama said while making a toast at a state dinner hosted by President Uhuru Kenyatta. "That's not the case." In 2011, Obama made his birth certificate public after so-called birthers questioned his eligibility to be president, claiming he was not a...

Founder Brian Bennett, an optical engineer by training, invented the first Transcend prototype after his father challenged him to build some LED lights for the family farm in upstate New York. When the lights he designed were successful, Bennett entered a business plan competition at Columbia, won some money to continue developing the idea, and was accepted into Y Combinator’s Spring 2015 class. “Farms today, generally speaking, use high pressure...

Kaukab Siddique, an English professor at Lincoln University outside Philadelphia, asked on Facebook this month whether Bill Cosby’s accusers took so long to come forward because “many women are sluts.” Another recent post on Facebook attributed the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage on “Obama’s homo uprising,” while a third post referred to “dirty Jewish Zionist White Supremacist thugs.” Lincoln University condemned Siddique’s remarks but said it does not plan to...

    No group in the United States today is making a stronger stand for liberty than the Little Sisters of the Poor, an order of Catholic nuns dedicated to running nursing homes for the elderly poor. Every friend of freedom should rally to their cause. The federal government is now seeking to deny these sisters freedom of conscience. It has already taken its case against their liberty all the way through the U.S. Court of Appeal for the 10th Circuit. If the government succeeds, it means Catholic nuns in this country can no longer freely exercise their Catholic faith. They must...

Will Evangelical photographers, Muslim florists, and Catholic bakers be coerced into serving gay weddings, or will they be sued and harassed into dust by the Left’s highly-choreographed pro-“tolerance” enforcement squad? Early indicators are mixed, so expect a lot more litigation on this front in the coming years, including lawsuits against churches and religious charities....

No other U.S. Jewish leader has wielded as much influence with policymakers, faith leaders and U.S. Jews.

Rather than galvanizing Americans into a unified body, the Obergefell decision has left U.S. citizens more divided than ever on the question of gay marriage, after the court itself showed a deep divide on the issue. In an unprecedented move, the four opposing justices each published an independent dissent, leaving a mine of legal reasoning...

Where has the “gay rights” movement come from, and how has it so easily conquered America?

The article is manipulative, but that is to be expected from something called “The Advocate”. You can be sure that the article doesn’t tell us everything.So, keeping in mind that we are flying partially blind… my emphases and comments.

    The Supreme Court's ruling on marriage equality has dominated the headlines since its announcement and it's been an issue Meghan McCain, blogger, GLAAD board member and daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) has been fighting for since 2008. "It was considered quite scandalous," McCain told Mac and Gaydos on 92.3 KTAR of her coming out in support of same sex marriage seven years ago. "It was the type of thing that got a lot of media attention, a lot of people thought I was crazy and completely out of touch with reality and now, people come out for marriage equality...

    Until Donald Trump sucked the air out of the room with an inflammatory comment about U.S. Sen. John McCain, the highlight of Saturday’s Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, was likely going to be U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.The GOP presidential contender from Texas drew a rousing standing ovation when he called on the federal government to defund Planned Parenthood. Cruz was responding to the release of an undercover video earlier this week that captured Planned Parenthood’s top doctor talking about how the abortion provider sells the body parts of aborted babies.A controversy that was swept from the front pages by...

    Sweet Cakes by Melissa owners Aaron and Melissa Klein had the audacity to defend their religious beliefs two years ago, and they suffered mightily. When a lesbian couple, Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer, requested a cake from the Oregon-based Christian bakers for their wedding, the latter politely declined because doing so would violate the religious edicts they so strongly follow. The Kleins’ religiously motivated decision prompted the gay couple to sue, and the Oregon labor commissioner ruled that the Kleins would have to shell out $135,000 in damages. Thanks to Americans who still cherish religious freedom, however, it appears this Christian family...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a Republican presidential candidate, sparred with MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Wednesday over whether the Supreme Court has become too “partisan” following the high court’s recent decisions on Obamacare and gay marriage.Though he’s done so in the past, Cruz said he’s reluctant to advocate for “judicial retention” elections every eight years. However, he also said he’s tired of seeing some of the justices “not honoring their judicial oaths.”Matthews later insinuated hypocrisy, accusing Cruz of “loving” it when the Supreme Court “seized the presidency in 2000” for former President George W. Bush during the infamous Florida recount...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush told Yahoo News today that he was “fine” with transgender people openly serving in the U.S. military so long as the Pentagon determines that doing so would not compromise morale within the armed forces. The Obama administration announced this week that it would start the process of lifting military’s ban on transgender service. Defense Secretary Ash Carter has ordered a 6-month review to develop guidelines for implementation and study the policy implications of the move. He called the ban “outdated.”

    We have rarely seen anything as disgraceful as this. There are just five days to go before the July 21 deadline to file for a re-hearing before the US Supreme Court on its recent 5-4 “same-sex marriage” ruling. But chances are bleak that this crucial filing will be done. The cave-in by the GOP has spread to major pro-family organizations. As we described in our report last week, the US Supreme Court "same-sex marriage” fight is not completely over. According to the Court’s published rules, within 25 days of a ruling, a party can ask the Court for a “rehearing”...
