    I’m approaching my 82nd birthday, and my daughter will occasionally suggest that modernity is perplexing to me because I’m from prehistoric times. As such, it points to one of the unavoidable problems of youth—namely, the temptation to think that today’s behavioral standards have always been. Let’s look at a few of the differences between yesteryear and today. One of those differences is the treatment of women. There are awesome physical strength differences between men and women. To create and maintain civil relationships between the sexes is to drum into boys, starting from very young ages, that they are not to...
  • U.S. bishop doubles-down on refusing funerals to non-repentant gays

    Catholic Bishop Robert Morlino is defending his diocese's recent guidelines to priests about denying funerals for non-repentant homosexuals, saying it’s the "straightforward teaching of the Church." He clarified in the face of an ugly campaign to have him removed as bishop that such guidelines in no way indicate that "we don’t care about homosexual people"  Morlino, the bishop of the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, has come under fire because his priests received a guidance reminding them of what the Code of Canon Law says about Catholic funerals for unrepentant “manifest public sinners,” such as people who publicly entered a same-sex “marriage.”...
  • Inspectors Stumble on Ghoulish Scene at Abortion Chain

    The Family Research Council ^ | October 31, 2017 | Tony Perkins, et al.
    In the abortion debate, there aren't many areas where the two sides agree. But shouldn't women's safety be one of them? Whole Woman's Health doesn't think so, and its latest inspection report proves it. The company's network of abortion centers is making headlines in Texas for subjecting mothers to third-world conditions that show just how little respect the industry has for the women it claims to protect.Over a six-year period, the Texas Department of State Health Services stumbled on one horrifying scene after another in the group's chain of facilities. Despite raking in millions from its abortion business, Whole Women's...

    A Catholic student group at Georgetown University could be stripped of its funding for its belief in traditional marriage. Love Saxa, a group that advocates for marriage between a man and a woman, is under fire from LGBTQ groups on campus, PRIDE and Queer People of Color, according to The Hoya, Georgetown’s student publication. A pro-choice student senator filed a notice on September 25, arguing Love Saxa’s definition of marriage and relationships violates university standards by fostering hatred or intolerance.The notice, which would identify Love Saxa as a hate group, could strip Love Saxa of its funding and bar it from...
  • What Alfred Kinsey and Hugh Hefner Had in Common

    Townhall ^ | 10/09/2017 | Michael Brown
    If Hugh Hefner was the poster boy of the sexual revolution, Alfred Kinsey was the father of the revolution. But that is not the only thing that joins these men together. Both of them were overt rebels against “puritanical” Christianity, devoting their lives to “liberate” humanity from what they perceived to be the bondage of a sterile, restrictive morality.Kinsey was born in 1894 and died in 1956. His claim to fame was his 1948 volume, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, followed by his 1953 volume, Sexual Behavior in the Human Female. (Is it a coincidence that it was in...

    Sometimes it’s appropriate to speak ill of the dead. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner died Wednesday, aged 91. But his work of mainstreaming porn will likely live on—and continue to hurt men and women—for many years to come. Playboy helped usher in an era of porn addiction, decreased happiness, and strained relationships between men and women. Porn did of course exist before Hefner, and the internet—a technological innovation Hefner had nothing to do with—greatly accelerated the use of porn. But what Hefner did was to bring porn out of the shadows, to make it something that could be discussed openly and...
  • Archbishop of Canterbury Admits 'I Am Copping Out' When Asked 'Is Gay Sex Sinful?'

    In an interview with GQ earlier this week, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby dodged the question of whether gay sex is sinful. He admitted to acting like a politician and to "copping out" on the answer, despite the fact that most Anglicans in the global church agree that gay sex is wrong, as it has been consistently condemned by the Bible and church tradition. GQ's Alastair Campbell asked Welby point-blank: "Is gay sex sinful?" After balking at the question, the archbishop gave a very telling answer. "You know very well that is a question I can't give a straight answer...

    WND ^ | August 28, 2017 | Dinesh D'Souza
    For a generation, progressives have portrayed fascism and Nazism as exemplified by sexual repression and moral conservatism. In this view, the left has an anti-Nazi sensibility because the left is into bohemianism and sexual expression. In my new book, “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of American Left,” I show that the fascists and Nazis, far from being repressed moral conservatives, were themselves sexually and stylistically bohemian. In style as well as in ideology, fascism and Nazism are phenomena of the political left. The whole notion that fascism and Nazism are forms of sexual repression is the invention of...

    DUP leader Arlene Foster is rejecting pressure to introduce same-sex marriage and abortion in Northern Ireland, saying her support for traditional marriage and the unborn is resolute. Speaking on Monday, Mrs Foster expressed sadness that opponents of redefining marriage are branded ‘homophobic’ and ‘haters’. And following a separate meeting with pro-life supporters, she said the party would do everything in its power to uphold Northern Ireland’s current law on abortion.

    Disney Junior released an episode of a cartoon aimed at preschoolers that depicted two "married" lesbian moms. Doc McStuffins, a show about an aspiring doctor who "fixes" toys with help from friends, featured a family led by two "moms" in its August 5 episode "The Emergency Plan." Although Doc McStuffins has been praised by many cultural critics for its depiction of a young African-American female doctor, it's now under fire for its most recent episode pushing same-sex "marriage." Here are 12 facts about Doc McStuffins. The creator of the show, Chris Nee, is in a same-sex 'marriage.' Michelle Obama...

    Texas is closer than ever to joining 10 other states that bar private insurance plans and those offered through the Affordable Care Act from covering abortions, except through supplemental plans. The Texas House -- over strong objections from Democrats -- gave preliminary approval to House Bill 214, which prohibits health plans from providing coverage for abortion except in the cases where the life of the mother is in danger. The House voted 95-51 to send the bill to a third and final reading. "This isn't about who can get an abortion," state Rep. John Smithee, R-Amarillo, said of his bill....

    July 31, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — This article is intended for anyone contemplating buckling under to the pressure of the radical homosexual agenda by either participating as a vendor (e.g. wedding cake baker, florist, photographer) or as an attendee at a same-sex "marriage" ceremony. From the vantage point of Holy Scripture, this is a no brainer. Multiple books in both the Old and New Testaments condemn homosexual behavior as gravely sinful. Even more to the point, the Bible is very clear that true marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman. This begins with Genesis in which man...

    Colleen Krajewski performs abortions. She's not hiding it -- in fact, she wants you to know. The Pittsburgh physician even has a tattoo of a clothes hanger, a symbol of the danger of illegal abortions, on her forearm for all to see. In July, The Washington Post published a column she wrote about her work and its impact on her personal and dating life. It was widely shared, and Krajewski said she has received messages from around the world in response. The column is unusual. She says many doctors who perform abortions aren't up front about what they do. Some...

    A queer thing happened to the Church of England. In the 500th year of the Reformation it crossed the thin red line from apostolic to apostate. Future seminary students will be grateful for this mnemonic device when mugging up important dates for a Church History exam. Easy peasy! How can one forget? In 1517, the Reformers decided to yank a recalcitrant Church of Rome back to the Bible. In 2017, the Reformers booed the Bible and booted it out of the Church of England. The flashpoint for the Reformation of 1517 was indulgences. The flashpoint for the Reformation of 2017...

    Rob Bell, who once enraged many evangelicals by questioning hell, is back with a new book that could re-ignite their fury. It’s called “What is the Bible?” And in it, Bell calls for the Bible to be read “literately, not literally.” In these polarized times, many Christians who claim to read the Bible are really more interested in cherry-picking verses to support their political or social points of view, Bell said in a phone interview with the Observer. “You can pull a verse out to justify almost anything,” he said. “When you read the Bible fuller and in-depth, suddenly you...

    Teen Vogue, a publication designed for kids, published an article this week about the wonders of anal sex. I won’t provide a link. You can look it up for yourself. But don’t. “A Guide to Anal Sex,” goes the headline. “How to do it the RIGHT way.” I confess that I didn’t read the entire piece, but I can report that it is quite lengthy, and it goes into extremely specific detail. Whether you want to try sodomy with a girl or a boy, the article, written by a sad pervert named Gigi Engle, outlines the procedure and gives some...

    It is perhaps somewhat ironic that the last time Americans were informed this incessantly of the threat Russia posed to the United States, it was called the Soviet Union and the Left was insisting that everything was being overblown. This time, in spite of a glaring lack of evidence, it is the Left that is announcing from its perch in the mainstream media that Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s puppet, and that Russia is the evil puppet-master pulling the strings of American democracy. The sinister Russian bear is growling in the East, we are told, and we should all be...
