  • Is the GOP Caving in on Same-Sex Marriage?

    The New American ^ | 02 April 2012 | Dave Bohon
    As the nation faces a crucial election in a little over six months, the Republican Party appears to be caving in on a social issue that many conservatives consider of major import: same-sex marriage. What the GOP felt strongly enough about some 16 years ago to lead the fight for passage of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), many members are beginning to consider an issue open to compromise. Not only do many Republican House and Senate members consider “gay” marriage a “dead issue,” according to, but Republican leadership has “evolved” to the point that it has quietly...

    Originally published in the August 1999 issue of AFA Journal. In 1973 the Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies. Since then, we have killed more than the entire population of Canada. And it continues. A woman's choice? Half of those who have died in their mothers' wombs have been women. They didn't have a choice. It is called abortion. Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now. First it was in dingy, dirty theaters. Then, convenience stores. Then, grocery stores. Then on television. Now it is in the...

    An International Man lives and does business wherever he finds conditions most advantageous, regardless of arbitrary borders. He's diversified globally, with passports from multiple countries, assets in several jurisdictions and his residence in yet another. He doesn't depend absolutely on any country and regards all of them as competitors for his capital and expertise. Living as an international man used to be just an interesting possibility. But few Americans opted for it, since the US used to reward those who settled in and put down roots. In fact, it rewarded them better than any other country in the world, so...

    Recently, our Failed Messiah, Barack Hussein Obama had this to say about the Trayvon Martin fiasco: (Don't worry. This column is NOT about the Creepy Left's new Horst Wessel. Enough electrons have died needless deaths on him.) *********************************** "All of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out how does something like this happen. And that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened as well as the specifics of the incident." *********************************** Really, Barry ? I mean, really ?

    As we go about our lives, there is something happening around us that is not deemed “newsworthy” or “important” by many people. It’s toxic, troubling, and traumatic. It’s happening on college campuses. It’s happening next door to you. It’s the white elephant in the room that everybody notices, but does not want to address for countless reasons. It’s what our generation praises and feels empowered by, but refuses to let their parents know about. And shockingly enough, it’s happening at conservative conferences thanks to people who do not practice what they preach. So what is it? It’s the hookup culture....

    On this forum there have been some interesting conversations about the current youth being unable to think morally and critically. I constructed this survey to see how the oldest living generations think about morals and certain subjects in comparison to the younger generations. if you could please take this, and share it around with your liberal and conservative friends, that'd be appreciated. if posting this link is against forum rules, I apologize profusely.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 03/05/2012 | Timothy Carney
    For one brief moment, Rick Santorum was the ideal Republican candidate for 2012, the perfect consonance of Don't-Tread-On-Me libertarianism and traditional cultural conservatism. When asked about contraception, which Santorum and the Catholic Church hold to be destructive of marriage and family, Santorum replied, "You know, here's the difference between me and the Left, and they don't get this. Just because I'm talking about it doesn't mean I want a government program to fix it. That's what they do. That's not what we do." This helped explain why so many liberal politicians and journalists were misunderstanding or lying about what Santorum...

The article failed to question the decision by this Mayor, a lawyer, to cease paying his mortgage "because its underwater" even after he was provided significant loan modifications, which included a reduced principal by over $125,000! Has the Government or anyone ever given you $125k and allowed you to live rent free? Read the whole article here:

    GAITHERSBURG, MD, March 1, 2012 ( - In the wake of international press coverage of a priest’s decision to deny a lesbian communion, and the woman’s subsequent demands that he be removed from the parish, a source close to the incident contacted LifeSiteNews with new information that he says will set the record straight. Among other things, the new information indicates that the woman did actually receive Communion at the Mass – but from an Extraordinary minister rather than the priest. Fr. Marcel Guarnizo of St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Gaithersburg, Maryland, was reprimanded by the Archdiocese of Washington...

    Man abused his creation in the beginning at the behest of the tempter. Mankind lost out on a good deal, original justice, in which we had full reign over our bodies, innocence, complete satisfaction of our material needs, and life in the garden of eden. The evil one was able to persuade us to turn our backs on it all. Paradoxically, we were able to sin because we were created in the image and likeness of God: free. Sin demonstrates our likeness to God as it demonstrates our freedom to choose good or evil. Ironically, this likeness to God--free choice,...

Just as we’ve seen from a lot of other things that are vices on the Internet, they end to grow exponentially as a result of that. It’s one thing to come to Las Vegas and do gaming and participate in the shows and that kind of thing as entertainment, it’s another thing to sit in your home and have access to that it.

    Coach is Right ^ | 2/12/2012 | Jerry Todd
    With the broad and deep attack on our values and Constitution by the Administration and its handlers, we must restore our armor against the snares of the evil that swirls through our halls of government. Oaths to uphold and protect the Constitution are laughed at and Judeo-Christian values vilified. More than politics, it’s spiritual warfare! Here are a few simple observations that a few of us might grasp and try to understand: 1. The Declaration of Independence sets the spiritual, moral and philosophical base of the Constitution. It also warns of “pretended legislation” and the “sending out of agents to...

    If Matt Damon is disillusioned with The One, Harry Belafonte is downright dismayed with President Barack Obama’s first term. The Calypso crooner didn’t hold back during a recent radio chat on “Smiley & West,” co-hosted by Tavis Smiley and Cornel West, even if a rebroadcast of the program snipped out Belafonte’s most punishing comments, according to The Radio Equalizer. My question is, what legacy will he leave, having the opportunity to serve under such hugely dramatic circumstances and had such a huge impact on the universal state of things … how could he have had such a splendid opportunity to...
