    Tulsa World ^ | 7/29/15 | Stacy Ryburn
    Fresh off the heels of the Boy Scouts of America’s decision Monday to end its ban on gay adult leaders, Oklahomans for Equality has announced its intention to form a local Cub Scout pack. Operating out of the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center, 621 E. Fourth St., the organization will charter the troop through Tulsa’s Boy Scouts chapter, the Indian Nations Council. The interest is there — both from youth participants and adults taking part in its leadership — and now it’s just a matter of getting all the paperwork in order and approval from the local council, said Andrew...

    Denounce the Synod PopeSynodFamily1 Today, the first official document of the Extraordinary Synod on the Family was released. Suffice it to say that the document doesnt even bother in the least to present Catholic teaching on the family. The whole document is an exercise in modernist tactics of persuasion by means of doctrinal ambiguity and unsettling that which is settled. But the most sinister passages depart clearly from the Catholic Faith. First, the document opens the door explicitly to holy communion for those who are publicly living in objectively adulterous unions: 46. In the same way the situation of the...

    Weekly Standard ^ | Apr 29, 2013 | KENNEALLY
    Every discussion of gay marriage should begin with a recognition of its historical radicalness, its exceptionality. Heterosexual marriage has been the fundamental unit of human sociability for thousands of years, a common thread running through otherwise disjunctive cultures and wide-ranging ethnic diversity. Wherever one lands on the issue of same-sex marriage, there can be no gainsaying its extraordinariness. Its also clear that same-sex marriage is a culmination of a long-brewing development, an unspooling of essential modern premises. The relentless logic of modernity is unrestrained individuality, the lonesome sovereignty of the singular person. The pith of matrimony is natural gregariousness, our...
  • Age of sexual consent in Mexico is 12!

    Examiner ^ | April 4, 2013 | Dave Gibson
    In recent months, there seems to have been an explosion of reported child sexual assaults committed by Mexican nationals, in this country illegally. Examiner The most troubling and telling reason behind the growing epidemic of child molestation at the hands of illegal aliens, may lie in the fact the age of sexual consent throughout the majority of Mexico is 12 years of age. Article 261 of Mexico's Federal Criminal Code states: Whoever, without the purpose of reaching copulation, performs a sexual act on a person under 12 or on a person that has no capacity of understanding the meaning of...

    A Wisconsin school superintendent may be rethinking how he dealt with a student who wrote a school newspaper article condemning homosexuality as sinful. As part of an assignment for his journalism class, which is responsible for producing the school newspaper, 15-year-old Shawano High School student Brandon Wegner contributed half of a pro-con editorial feature on adoption by homosexual couples, using Scripture to buttress his case against same-sex couples adopting children. Wegner, who was raised in a Christian home, pointed out that, according to Leviticus 18:22, it is an abomination for couples of the same sex to be intimately involved. With...

These would be the folks who recently bribed states to retain academically troublesome students whose behavior hindered decent students so as to make America "better educated," i.e., a nation of high school "graduates" barely able to read their diplomas. Well, like all industrious Washington bureaucrats, BED, with Department of Justice support, soldiers...

Jim Webb called for ending government-run diversity programs in a newspaper column Friday, saying they have disadvantaged struggling whites and hurt the cause of racial harmony. Webb wrote an op-ed column in Friday's Wall Street Journal that said a "plethora of government-enforced diversity policies have marginalized many white workers. The time has come to cease the false arguments and allow every American the benefit of a fair chance at the future." Webb's press secretary, Jessica Smith, said Friday that the senator felt the column speaks for itself and that he would not comment further.

    In what has become an annual rite of passage, University of Colorado students are being subjected this month to a round of diversity workshops preaching that all whites are racist. The latest round, hosted by the university's women's resource center last Friday, was titled "White on White Taskforce: Acting to Dismantle Racism." According to organizers, it was "designed to give White people tools to dismantle racism on campus." At the workshop, students received a handout espousing the "underlying assumptions" of its leaders. Most notably, it read "reverse racism is impossible," meaning that non-whites cannot be racist. And also of interest,...

If sexual conservatives could effectively advertise their histories, HIV-conscious suitors would compete to lavish them with attention. But that doesn't happen, because conservatives are hard to identify. Insufficiently rewarded for relaxing their standards, they relax their standards insufficiently.

    Last week I focused on how high school students are being radicalized against "hate" and in favor of "diversity." This radicalism ends up on college campuses like the one I attended nearly 30 years ago. Angry students, often led by the African Studies Department, would allege racism. People, who would have done well wearing brownshirts in Germany around 1930, would harangue about injustices, real or in most cases, very much imagined.

A team will benefit from having people who think differently, have different backgrounds an opinions. While this is obvious, the extent to which it is so is perhaps not. Groups of people who are similar will reinforce each other and produce extreme, and badly wrong, ideas. Groups of people who are different can often be better than even the best individuals within them. For example, if you ask a group of people to estimate the weight of a cow or the number of...

Republican legislators are about to pass a law requiring schools in the state to teach teenagers that sexual abstinence until marriage is the "preferred" behavior in Wisconsin.

    In city halls and public parks across the country, stories-high evergreens are being erected and decked with glowing lights and sparkling ornaments. They look - and smell - like Christmas trees. But not so fast. In places as varied as Chicago, Reno and Prairie Village, Kan., they're "holiday" trees. In other spots, such as Atlanta, they have no name at all. This year, the tree-name game has sparked a backlash, with some Americans crying humbug and Christian groups threatening lawsuits over what they say is religious discrimination. Perhaps the most heated debate is brewing in Boston. The city's Parks and...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president. Her brothers, Hugh and Tony Rodham, say it's true. Friends...

    To hear homosexual agitators tell it, same-sex "marriage" is no threat to the institution that civilized humans have reserved for one man and one woman for thousands of years. They scoff at the notion that vaporizing traditional marriage will break down barriers prohibiting unions involving multiple partners, close relatives or other species. But the facts say otherwise. More than a decade ago, homosexual marriage was legalized in Scandinavia and now dogs are routinely sodomized in Sweden to the point where they need medical treatment. Now the same court that conjured up a same-sex marriage right in Massachusetts has ruled that...

    Many University of Nebraska-Lincoln English students got a break from Shakespeare, Faulkner and Sandoz Thursday. Instead, they filed in and out of the day's special classroom, Andrews Hall's second-floor library, which was festooned with rainbow-colored streamers and a gay pride flag. Their instructors included the Nebraska American Civil Liberties Union, a campus gay-rights group and various UNLprofessors. The assignment was simple:Think about gay rights on UNL's campus. The GLBT Teach-In is designed to educate students and professors about hate crime legislation, same-sex marriage, gay adoption and discrimination by sexual orientation, said Joy Arbor, an English teaching assistant and Teach-In organizer....

    San Diego Union-Tribune Dishonoring Scouts and the taxpayers By Harold Johnson January 15, 2004 In a time of tight budgets for governments up and down California, San Diego recently announced a massive contribution of taxpayer dollars to the American Civil Liberties Union. Bet you didn't know there was extra cash lying around City Hall. The payoff is part of the city's cave-in to the ACLU's lawsuit that aims to kick the Boy Scouts off public parkland in San Diego. By the terms of the city's settlement, the ACLU gets a staggering $950,000 in public money, and the city pledges not...

    [EXCERPT: full article linked above] Finally, I was going to report that Thomas Sowell, in a column, disclosed that he was going to vote for Arnold and that Sowell's word was good enough for me. There is maybe not a person in the country whose judgment I respect more. But then this came in a few minutes ago. Schwarzenegger was questioned about Prop 54, the Ward Connerly-spearheaded measure that would make it illegal for governmental agencies to collect racial statistics on the population, with some prudent exceptions. This is the Racial Privacy Initiative. Schwarzenegger said, "I'm against it....

    You will be deluged with commentary about Bush's speech last night, so I will be brief: It was powerful because it was true. It wasn't powerful because it was particularly well delivered or particularly well written (although it was adequately delivered and quite well written). What power it had and it had a lot sprang from the fact that it was true. Almost self-evidently true. That's my two cents although, succinct as that was, maybe even less than that. The New York Daily News had a screaming headline excoriating George W. for not coming to New York...
