    The ink on the Supreme Court’s lawless decree that God’s law aganst sodomy is null and void is scarcely dry but the Gaystopo has not taken a day off. They are pressing the fight and will continue to do so until either they or the Catholic Church in America have been defeated. Emboldened by the realization that they own the Supreme Court, the Gaystopo, as predicted here, are turning every screw they can to mock Catholic doctrine and press their attack. Now they have a new partner, the National Broadcasting Network (NBC) which has slithered out of the closet. In...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron has called on the BBC not to use the term "Islamic State" for the extremist group in Iraq and Syria, according to the Daily Mail, arguing that the reference to Islam perpetuates a "perversion of a great religion." "I wish the BBC would stop calling it Islamic State because it's not an Islamic State; what it is is an appalling, barbarous regime," Cameron said, during an interview on a BBC morning show. "It is a perversion of the religion of Islam and many Muslims listening to this program will recoil every time they hear the...

    Supreme Court cases, former cover boys for Wheaties’ cereal boxes, faux ethnic origins—have you noticed? We live in the day of the unreal. The misdirected. The re-channelled. We do it all based on emotion. As most of the social media denunciations of Christians this weekend chastised them for ignoring (in their words) the command of God to “love” people, the very same youthful, ignorant, and misinformed forgot all about the portions of the Bible that call us to sacrifice, obedience, and trust. The new hashtag that is being championed around the twitterverse, cybersphere, and interwebs is #LoveWins. The uninformed—including...

    Full title: 'Civil War' And 'Endless Trauma': What Opponents Predict Will Happen If Marriage Equality Is Legalized The Supreme Court will issue its decision this month in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that could affirm that same-sex couples around the country have the constitutional right to marry. Same-sex marriage is already legal in 37 states and the District of Columbia. But in the remaining states, gay couples are prohibited from marrying, and couples who were legally married in other states are barred from having their unions recognized in these non-marriage equality states. If the Supreme Court affirms that same-sex couples...

Billed as a “national Day of Silence” the stunt was concocted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network a New York organization which has been pushing the “Day” scheme since 2000.

The report from the group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently reveals that usually ultra-conservative Islamic extremists spend part of their salary on “kinky underwear” for their wives and for hundreds of young women and children that are kidnapped and sold as sex slaves. Anonymous doctors told the website that a “large section of ISIS members suffer from sexual anomalies and brutal instinctive desire...

    Peeling back all kinds of sexual taboos may not have the best results. Bestiality, anyone? So are you ready to set aside “Fifty Shades of Grey” and talk about the normalization of sexual relations between humans and animals? Seriously, in November New York Magazine ran an exhaustive interview with a 42-year-old man from Canada who described in graphic detail his love affairs with horses. (Oh, by the way, he says he’s “lucky” to have his human wife because that way “nobody would ever guess.”) He argues that bestiality—or, in politically correct parlance, “zoophilia”—should be legal and socially de-stigmatized. Meanwhile, in...

For Pennsylvania, a state where in most municipalities a person can still be fired from his job or denied housing because of his or her sexual orientation, Wolf said the extended anti-discrimination bills fit the state's heritage perfectly. "Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn on the basis of tolerance. On the basis of religious freedom," Wolf noted. U.S. District Judge John Jones gave the LGBT movement a push with...

    Yes! Unfortunately pornography has a foothold in both the Islamic and non-islamic worlds. Western society is well known for its blatant promotion of the pornographical industry, and it has never hidden the rampant pornography consumption that is prevalent within its developed countries. But the consumption of pornography in Islamic countries has seemingly flown under the radar, with the Islamic community leaders either unaware of, or turning a blind eye to the issue. Many experts are of the opinion that the pornography addiction topic is well known by the Imams in western countries, but it is an area they dare not...

Out-of-town same sex couples were once shunned by the state's 2008, voter-approved anti-gay marriage amendment. Now they're being coveted by businesses and tourism leaders.

    Attorney General Eric Holder announced expanded protection for transgender government employees Thursday, allowing the Justice Department to file claims against employers accused of discriminating based on gender identity. The expanded protections come from Holder's clarified interpretation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits workplace discrimination due to racial, gender or religious bias. Holder will no longer maintain the previously established position that "Title VII's prohibition against discrimination based on sex does not encompass gender identity per se." "This important shift will ensure that the protections of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are extended to...

    Barbra Streisand sent out an email Saturday asking Democrats to donate money immediately to candidates facing stiff opposition in the November midterm elections... "Whether you know it or not, in the past six years we have seen huge progress under President Obama. Unemployment is at the lowest level since before President Obama took office, before the Great Recession started. The deficit is rapidly dropping and is just 2.8% of GDP -- the lowest since 2007," she wrote. "And thank God for President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, which has helped millions of people around the country gain access to health care....

    Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is asking the Florida Supreme Court to rule on same-sex marriage in the Sunshine State. On Monday, Bondi filed an appeal with the 3rd District Court of Appeal asking them to consider ruling on allowing gay couples to marry in Florida.... "Until recently, the issue was squarely before the United States Supreme Court, and it appeared that a definitive answer was coming," wrote Bondi. "Several certi-orari petitions from several states asked that court to take up the issue and rule. Even those who had prevailed below sought Supreme Court review. The United States Supreme Court...

    Alaska will begin accepting marriage applications from same-sex couples Monday after a federal judge struck down the state's ban on gay marriage — the nation's first such prohibition approved by voters. The decision late Sunday afternoon caught many people off guard. No rallies were immediately planned, but some plaintiffs celebrated over drinks at an Anchorage bar. Matthew Hamby, who with his husband, Christopher Shelden, was one of five couples to sue, was "just having drinks with friends, enjoying it."

    U.S. District Court Judge Tim Burgess issued a summary judgment in favor of plaintiffs arguing that Alaska's same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional, days after their case began to be heard in court. In his decision for Matthew Hamby and Christopher Shelden, Burgess found that previous Supreme Court decisions have shown that “rights not explicitly mentioned in the Bill of Rights can be protected by substantive due process.” He likened his decision to a ruling by the high court allowing interracial marriage, in which justices relied on inherent characteristics of marriage to allow interracial unions instead of decreeing them to be...

    The United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has struck down the marriage laws of Idaho and Nevada, paving the way for same-sex marriage in the states. Responding to the October 7 decision, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, chairman of the US bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, said that “authentic marriage as the union of one man and one woman is the only institution that unites a man and a woman with each other and with any child who comes from their union. It is rather remarkable that the Court of Appeals was so contemptuous of...

    .....Las Vegas, the land of wedding chapels, is ready for gay weddings. On Tuesday, Nevada and Idaho joined the growing number of states where same-sex marriage is legal when the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that gay couples' equal protection rights were violated by the gay marriage bans in both states. .....Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapels, which is gay-owned and operated, already hosts about 500 same-sex commitment ceremonies each year, said General Manager Brian Mills, who doubles as an officiant, often times in costume. In October, one of the chapel's busiest months, he could be Dracula for one...

    To see how the politics of gay marriage has changed in this country in 11 years, revisit this Nov. 19, 2003 New York Times piece after the Massachusetts Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in the state: House Majority Leader Tom DeLay denounced what he said was a “runaway judiciary”; the Republican National Committee said the decision “could be an issue” in the upcoming presidential contest; and an aide to a Democratic presidential candidate predicted the subject “is going to come up again and again.” And, well, in 2004, a strong argument can be made....
