    LIVE STREAM: Milo Yiannapoulos Holds a Press Conference. In a statement published minutes ago, Yiannopoulos said, ďBreitbart News has stood by me when others caved,Ē continuing, ďI would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleaguesí important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately.Ē After Yiannopoulos was slated to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), a video of him discussing pedophilia made the rounds on Twitter and earned pretty widespread condemnation. Yiannopoulos responded to the outcry insisting that he has an ďutter disgust [for] adults who sexually abuse minorsĒ...

    Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has made an entire career out of saying shocking, deliberately offensive things in response to public controversies. So she did today when she weighed in on the career meltdown of Breitbart Editor and fellow conservative Milo Yiannopoulos in terms calculated for maximum outrage. Coulterís tweet comes after video emerged over the weekend in which Yiannopoulos defended pedophiliac behavior at length, referred to people as young as 13 as ďsexually mature,Ē and joked that his own experience as a victim of molestation made him good at oral sex.

    The other day, I was channel surfing in the evening and came across Madonna's Rebel Heart tour video on Showtime. I always felt that Showtime is one of the most liberal cable channels out there, but this programming really epitomized it. I know Madonna has made her career pushing the envelope with the promiscuous sex, blasphemous uses of the crucifix and Catholic icons, and her liberal antics. This concert showed her strutting around the stage with her ass cheeks hanging out. Her female backup dancers were pole dancing on stripper poles that were crosses, and they were wearing what looked...
  • Minister Prays for Abortion at Supreme Court: ďAbortion is Not a Sin, Itís a Moral DecisionĒ

    Pro-life and abortion activists alike gathered outside the U.S. Supreme Court building today awaiting the hearing on an important abortion case out of Texas. The U.S. Supreme Court case Whole Womanís Health v. Hellerstedt was bought by abortion businesses against a pro-life Texas law responsible for closing abortion clinics that could not guarantee they could protect the health of Texas women. The law has been credited with saving the lives of more than 10,000 unborn children. Among the pro-abortion speakers was the Rev. Debra Haffner, a Jewish Unitarian Universalist who ďpreachedĒ in favor of abortion in front of the Supreme...

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden, February 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) -- Last week the youth wing of Sweden‚Äôs Liberal Party voted to call for the decriminalization of sexual relations between siblings as well as sexual relations with a corpse, on the argument that laws should not be based on ‚Äúmorality‚ÄĚ or on a societal consensus on what is ‚Äúdisgusting.‚ÄĚ‚ÄúWe are a youth organization and one of our tasks is to think one step further,‚ÄĚ said Liberal Youth leader Cecilia Johnsson to¬† Swedish news site Aftonbladet last week.¬†‚ÄúI understand that [incest and necrophilia] can be seen as unusual and disgusting but legislation can not be...

    Given its huge success in describing the natural world for the past 150 years, the theory of evolution is remarkably misunderstood. In a recent episode of the Australian series of "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here", former cricket star Shane Warne questioned the theory - asking "if humans evolved from monkeys, why haven't today's monkeys evolved"? Similarly, a head teacher from a primary school in the UK recently stated that evolution is a theory rather than a fact. This is despite the fact that children in the UK start learning about evolution in Year 6 (ten to 11-year-olds),...

    Take note Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith: Getting political has its risks. After the actress declared Monday that she will be boycotting the Oscars after her husband was snubbed, Alexis Arquette took a major swing at the pair for what she alleges is hypocrisy. The transgender actress and gender-rights activist "outed" the married couple with a Facebook post that argued that Mr. and Mrs. Smith’s comments on race and the Oscars were invalid because they won't ’fess up about their alleged homosexuality. "When Jada comes out as Gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she...

    Today, Salon gave a platform to a self-confessed pedophile to explain his urges in sympathetic terms. ďIím a Pedophile, But Not A MonsterĒ reads the headline. Itís a long, self-pitying screed that ends with a call to be ďunderstanding and supportiveĒ of adults who crave sexual intimacy with children. Forgive me if Iím not first to start the standing ovation. In fact Iím pretty sure most people will find the existence on Salonís website of this post both shocking and distasteful. The timing of Nickersonís post, barely a week after multiple high-profile progressives rallied around progressive activist Sarah Nyberg, couldnít...

    In one short sentence, [Amira Hass] neatly encapsulates the moral rot at the heart of the modern multicultural left: ďWe donít rate suffering.Ē .... No one has the right to compare in any way the suffering of peoples and human beings, or to quantify it, rank it, calculate it Ö We donít quantify. We donít rate suffering. This, in a nutshell, is the moral abdication at the heart of todayís multicultural left: In its ostensibly noble desire to ensure that no suffering goes unnoticed or unattended, it has abandoned the very essence of morality Ė the ability to draw distinctions,...

    On March 22, 2013, Pope Francis addressed the Diplomatic Corps with a warning against the ¬ďtyranny of relativism.¬Ē He then explained his selection of the name Francis as in part stemming from St. Francis¬í battle for peace, a peace which Pope Francis underscored was impossible without Truth. The necessary struggle for truth not only remains part of the context for Francis¬í choice of name, but also for his papacy. In his remarks, Francis explicitly linked his concerns with those of his predecessor Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, whom he named.In the then Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger¬ís homily of April 18, 2005,...

    A national evangelical Christian leader has written that his fellow believers should vote for Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, because she will radically reduce the abortion rate. Hillary, in whose campaign abortion industry lobbyists play a conspicuous role, favors abortion-on-demand throughout pregnancy. Yet Tony Campolo believes a second Clinton presidency will halve the number of abortions nationwide. ďHillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent,Ē Campolo, a sociology professor emeritus at Eastern University, wrote in a debate on Religion News...

    What would you say if you found out that our public schools were teaching children that it is not true that itís wrong to kill people for fun or cheat on tests? Would you be surprised? I was. As a philosopher, I already knew that many college-aged students donít believe in moral facts. While there are no national surveys quantifying this phenomenon, philosophy professors with whom I have spoken suggest that the overwhelming majority of college freshman in their classrooms view moral claims as mere opinions that are not true or are true only relative to a culture.

    After six years in office, there are few things that President Obama does that surprises me. Notwithstanding this, I was still shocked to hear his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast. Using some misguided moral equivalency, President Obama reached back over almost a thousand years to compare a group of Christians then to current day radical Islamists killing innocents in the name of Allah, telling Christians not to get on their ďhigh horseĒ. (Not to mention, he conveniently omitted the context of the Crusades, a response to Islamic conquest). At times during the speech, it appeared the President was taking...

    This year the movie God Is Not Dead preyed on every Christian parentís fear of sending a child off to college only to have their familyís faith and values undermined by an atheist college professor espousing some form of moral relativism. The movie hinges on a certain clichť, but the clichť is a clichť because many of us took a class with ďthat professor.Ē He might not have been so over-the-top, but his prejudices were evident. The American university tends to be fairly hostile to the conservative movement. One of the core tenets of conservatism is the Judeo-Christian teaching that...

    In the 900th issue of Action Comics, Superman decides to go before the United Nations and renounce his U.S. citizenship. " 'Truth, justice and the American way'óit's not enough any more," he despairs. That issue, published in April 2011, is perhaps the most dramatic example of modern comics' descent into political correctness, moral ambiguity and leftist ideology. We are comic-book artists and comics are our passion. But more important they've inspired and shaped many millions of young Americans. Our fear is that today's young comic-book readers are being ill-served by a medium that often presents heroes as morally compromised or...
  • From bad to worse: Dr. Ben Carson cannot be trusted on gun rights

    Dr. Ben Carson, potential contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, has been enjoying near "rock star" status in ostensibly conservative circles. If that continues, "conservatives" had might as well give up trying to cast themselves as representing the "pro-gun" position, because Carson's stance on guns is one that would probably not displease the Brady Campaign. Carson first raised gun owners' hackles in March, 2013, when he blithely told Glenn Beck that the right to own semi-automatic firearms is contingent on where one lives. From Mediate: But when asked whether people should be allowed to own ďsemi-automatic weapons,Ē the...
