    As anyone who’s read my abstinence column here at Fox News Opinion could guess, my wedding is something that I’ve looked forward to for quite some time. After having tied the knot at the end of August, I can now say beyond all shadow of a doubt, that it was everything I’d hoped and prayed that it would be since childhood. (I’d also prayed to be bitten by a radioactive spider and develop sticky hands, but… I was an idiot.) Let me preface this column by saying this: my wife (I have to get used to saying that) and I...

    Three U.S. congressmen and a top-level government official attended the opening of the Church of Scientology’s National Office in Washington, D.C., Thursday. Their attendance marked a significant endorsement from members of a government that was once partially at war with the organization. Lawmakers in attendance were Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Indiana Republican Rep. Dan Burton and Illinois Democratic Rep. Danny Davis. Liz Gibson, Senior Program Manager at the Federal Emergency Management Agency was also in attendance. Jackson Lee applauded the organization. “I want to thank L. Ron Hubbard for recognizing that courage is not rewarded but it is...

    On September 6 Yahoo News reported on, “‘Sluts vote’: the unlikeliest DNC flair”: A member of the Illinois delegation has sold out of a batch of pins she made that say “Sluts vote.” The pins, which cost 2 for $5, reference radio host Rush Limbaugh’s attack on women’s activist Sandra Fluke (he called her a “slut” for advocating that insurance plans fully cover contraceptives). We spotted several delegates on Thursday sporting the pins…. “I think ‘slut’ is offensive, that’s why we’re trying to own it and make it ours,” said Debra Shore, an Illinois delegate from Chicago. Makes total sense....

    Five of the six Rhode Island Senate candidates who support same-sex marriage lost during the state’s Democratic primaries Wednesday, despite massive backing from special-interest groups.“The Rhode Island Senate looks like it will again be safe for defending marriage as the union of one man and one woman,” National Organization for Marriage Northeast Director Chris Plante told CitizenLink.Incumbent Sen. Mike McCaffrey, who supports marriage and the right to life, beat Laura Pisaturo, who supports same-sex marriage.In addition to Pisaturo, the other same-sex marriage supporters challenging incumbents or vying for open seats who lost Wednesday are David Gorman, Gene Dyszlewski, Lewis Pryeor,...

    A leading pro-life group has obtained a copy of Tonya Reaves’ autopsy report that it says shows beyond a doubt that the 24-year old woman died from three major complications during a botched second-trimester abortion suffered at a Chicago area Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on July 20, 2012. Operation Rescue, which obtained the full autopsy results late yesterday, says it indicates that Reaves’ injuries were survivable if she had received proper emergency care in a timely manner. The autopsy report is seven pages in length but it took two months for it to be released publicly, despite requests from OR...

    September 12, 2012|6:13 pmThe U.S. Department of Justice filed two petitions Tuesday as part of their challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act, asking the Supreme Court to review cases that could ultimately lead to the court overturning the law that defines marriage as between and man and a woman. The specific part of the law that attorneys for the Justice Department want the court to focus on is Section 3, which they say violate the rights of legally married same-sex couples, arguing that it treats them differently than married heterosexual couples.In 2007, New York resident Edie Windsor married her...

    How little does Obama care about religious liberty? This little: A few minutes ago, in Oklahoma, The Becket Fund filed a lawsuit on behalf of a multi-billion dollar private business, Hobby Lobby. As you may know, Hobby Lobby is a privately owned company with 500 stores in 42 states, 22,000 employees, and $1.3 + billion in sales. If this private family owned business refuses to comply with the HHS mandate, the government will fine them $1.3 million per day. [The Becket Fund] It may be only a little to him. But this fine is a lot to us. Steven Ertelt...

    The relentless campaign to promote and normalize homosexuality -- and now cross-dressing and transgenderism -- for children is gaining speed in the media. These are things that are really happening. They are at the same time frightening and heartbreaking to watch and read about. On Sunday, Sept. 2, the Boston Globe featured a front-page article about a "groundbreaking" summer camp in Connecticut for "transgender" and cross-dressing children. According to the article, several of these children are being given drugs to delay their puberty so that they can have "successful" sex-change surgery. Some girls have already had their breasts surgically removed,...

    The Venice Film Festival awarded a special jury prize Saturday to “Paradise: Faith.” The film is part of a trilogy; Strand Releasing has acquired the U.S. rights and plans to release it early next year. Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows: One of the hallmarks of cultural charlatans is the propensity to insult Christians, especially Catholics, and then declare their offense creative. If anyone wants to know why a special jury prize was given to “Paradise: Faith,” let me spare you the need to read about it: it won because it shows a devout Catholic woman masturbating with...

    My friends the world abounds with liars in all classes of politics and life in general but particularly here in America for the last six years (2006 elections) the Progressive Democratic Left has faithfully lied about everything under the sun to promote, preserve and protect their lawless Marxist agenda and their chosen chief chosen one. From Health Care to Medicare, from Republicans to the Tea Party, from the economy to tax increases, from the Fast and the Furious to the Stimulus, from the war on terror to Guantanamo, from drilling to green energy, from Limbaugh to Bush to Palin, from...

    Folk rock legend Bob Dylan has some strong words about America that many of his compatriots may not want to hear: He says the stigma of slavery ruined America and he doubts whether the country can get rid of the shame because it was “founded on the backs of slaves.” Dylan spoke to Rolling Stone for a cover story that coincides with the release of his 35th studio album, “Tempest.” Dylan has long been an outspoken critic of American culture and its inherent inequalities, particularly during the 1960s when his songs “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are...

    This past week, “2016: The Movie” about President Barack Obama opened in the Chicago area, and I chose to get more of an education about Obama by seeing the movie. After the inundation of canned hype for the movie on conservative talk shows across the Chicago radio dial that sounded more like commercials than honest endorsements of the movie, I was skeptical of what I was going to see. While some talk show hosts sounded like they were genuinely impressed with the documentary and honestly endorsing the film, there were those who were obviously reading a commercial script which was...
  • I'm Barack Obama, and I approve this abortion

    09/11/2012 2:43:02 PM PDT · by rhema · 13 replies
    While the media would like to portray conservative politicians as obsessed with abortion, the Democratic Convention last week told a different story. President Obama had over two dozen prime time speakers, including the heads of the largest pro-abortion organizations, praising unrestricted abortions at taxpayer expense. Abortion giant Planned Parenthood, which gets at least one million dollars a day from taxpayers, is repaying the President's gratitude by launching a $3.2 million television ad buy in Ohio and Virginia on Monday as part of its biggest-ever campaign effort. The newest ad, called "Turn Back the Clock," is set to run on cable...

    We should not be surprised at the evil idiocy that comes from godless people, although their vile words and twisted ideas can sometimes still be stunning. We saw some of this last week at the Democrat convention. We saw those godless fools scream, wail and shake their fists against God and Jerusalem—three times, in fact. We saw them applaud taxpayer funding for killing pre-born babies. We saw them cheer for sodomy and the destruction of the meaning of marriage. We saw them glorify the lawless illegal alien invasion of our nation. We saw their ugly face in prime time high-definition....

    "We should strive to have it legalized" Is polygamy becoming the new “gay” movement in America? [Cast of "Sister Wives"] With television shows such as HBO’s “Big Love” and TLC’s “Sister Wives,” polygamy is the once-taboo lifestyle that appears to be gaining wider acceptance – especially on the heels of homosexual marriage victories across the nation. ... the website Pro-Polygamy.com declared Aug. 19 the 12th annual Polygamy Day. According to the site, since it began, “the annual celebration grew into a widespread and religiously-neutral individual celebration around the country among all forms of consenting-adult pro-polygamists.” Historically, polygamy has had little...

We had heard a few stories where brothers and sisters were completely, absolutely in love with one another. You know what? This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want. Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want?...
  • UK Government Lawyer to European High Court: Christians Should Leave Faith at Home or Resign

    From UK Christian Institute: "Christians in Britain should leave their faith at home or accept that they might have to get another job, a Government lawyer has told the European Court of Human Rights. The comment came as the Court heard the cases of four Christians, including that of registrar Lillian Ladele who was disciplined for her stance on civil partnerships. All four say the UK Government failed to protect their religious liberty. Dinah Rose QC, representing Miss Ladele, told the Court that her client had been used as “an instrument” of social change by her former employer Islington Borough...

    Maybe Democrats have some slick salesmen, like Bill Clinton and our current president, who can sell you swampland and have you convinced that you’ve bought choice beachfront property. But the omission of any mention of God and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from the Democratic Party platform, which were in it in 2008, and then the almost failed attempt to add them after the fact, showed the clear truth about the 2012 Democratic Party. It took three boisterous floor votes to add these principles to the platform and listening to the ayes and nays in the third vote, it...
