    President François Hollande has allowed a French woman to marry her dead fiancé, under a little-known law dating back 55 years. Pascale Liéard, 48, was given permission for a posthumous marriage to groom Michael, who died two years ago from a heart attack. Liéard wrote to the president four times before he granted her wedding request. She plans to wear a white top and a black skirt for the occasion. She said, “There are tears in normal weddings, so I can’t imagine what will happen at ours.” “It will be like any other wedding ceremony except that there will be...

    An 18-year-old woman with a necrophilia fetish had three-way sex on the corpses of two men who she and her sexual partners strangled, it was claimed today. Joshua Miner, 24, piled the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins, both 22, together and placed a beige sheet across them so he and his longtime girlfriend, Alisa Massaro, could lie together on top of them at Massaro's home in Joliet, Illinois, according to police reports. Adam Landerman, the 19-year-old son of a police sergeant, may have joined Massaro and Miner's sexual romp, as well, the report says. After killing the men,...

    Broomfield Township, Mich. -- As police frantically worked to figure out how his fiancée's 24-year-old daughter had vanished, a Michigan pastor who had turned to God to shed his violent past went to his flock with a request to pray for her. But all along, authorities say, he knew the sordid truth about where the young mother was. The pastor, ex-convict John D. White, later confessed to killing the woman to fulfill a fantasy of necrophilia, police said Friday. White drank four or five beers before going to the woman's mobile home and repeatedly striking her head with a mallet...

    Commentators at the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times may decry the Episcopal Church as a place offering pet funerals but nothing for the faithful or failing to provide anything one cannot get from purely secular liberalism. These traditionalists appear to bemoan the loss of a 1950s-era church that promoted an Eisenhower-era civil religion replete with the cross draped in the American flag. While they wax nostalgia over a past that largely existed only in TV Land,.the Episcopal Church made history at its 77th triennial General Convention by passing two gender nondiscrimination resolutions. Led by a grassroots coalition...

The LBGT publication asked the TV and theater star: "What would you ask people who cite Christianity as their justification for passing laws that discriminate against people?" Chenoweth replied, "I would ask, 'What would Jesus do?' It sounds so cliché and Pollyanna-ish, but I have a feeling if he were on the earth today, he wouldn't be walking around saying, 'You’re going to hell' and 'You're wrong, you're wrong,...

    A former morgue worker in prison for having sex with a corpse awaiting autopsy has been sentenced on two more counts of sexually assaulting corpses. Common Pleas Court Judge Nadine Allen on Tuesday sentenced 56-year-old Kenneth Douglas to three years in prison. Douglas pleaded guilty in October to the two counts of gross abuse of a corpse for violating the bodies of two 1991 female homicide victims. The sentence is to run after a three-year prison sentence Douglas is serving for having sex with the body of a 1982 female murder victim. Douglas was a night attendant at the Hamilton...

    The stolen body and coffin of a German billionaire, Friedrich Karl Flick, have been found in Hungary. The coffin and remains were handed over to Austrian authorities at the weekend, Austrian police say. Thieves stole the coffin in November 2008, after moving a slab of granite at the mausoleum in southern Austria where the industrialist was buried. Flick inherited German factories that employed slave labour during World War II. He died in 2006 at the age of 79. In December 2008 his widow Ingrid offered a 100,000-euro (£91,000) reward in an effort to recover the body. No ransom demand was...

    The Hate Crime law, HR-1913, will make 30 sexual orientations federally-protected. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has published 30 such sexual orientations that, because of Congress's refusal to define "sexual orientation," will be protected under this legislation. These 30 orientations are listed in the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), which is used by physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and psychiatrists throughout the U.S. It is considered the dictionary of mental disorders. Those 30 sexual orientations include behaviors that are felonies or misdemeanors in most states. Among those sexual orientations being protected by HR-1913 are these: Apotemnophilia...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) ― The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Wednesday reinstated sexual assault charges against three young men accused of digging up a corpse so one of them could have sex with it.

The charges carry a punishment of up to 10 years in prison. A circuit court judge and an appeals court had dismissed those charges, saying Wisconsin law does not ban sex...

    Adding sexual orientation to hate crimes will destroy America as we know it. First it would put homosexuality above religious freedoms, a violation of the first amendment. Second it would be giving special rights to a class of people, recognized only by there deviant behavior. It would be similar to saying that it will be a hate crime to call someone a criminal when they steal your car. Third. The phrase "sexual orientation" is made up by homosexuals to try to make themselves look less filthy than they really are. The purpose of the phrase is to take the spotlight...

They afford a telling glimpse into the secret world of Dutch Islamists who used fundamentalism as a veil to mask their sexual perversions. Bouyeri’s parents were first-generation immigrants. He completed secondary school in Amsterdam, then attended college for five years, but quit before receiving a degree. Shortly after the death of his mother, he turned to Islamic...

Parental warning: This article refers to infanticide and some abnormal sexual activities. Don't expect Peter Singer to be quoted heavily on the issue that roiled the Nov. 2 election, same-sex marriage. That for him is intellectual child's play, already logically decided, and it's time to move on to polyamory. While politicians debate the definition of marriage between two people, Mr. Singer argues that any kind of "fully consensual" sexual behavior involving two people or 200 is ethically fine.
