    NEW YORK (AP) -- For the combatants in America's long-running culture wars, the triumph of Donald Trump and congressional Republicans was stunning - sparking elation on one side, deep dismay on the other. Advocates of LGBT rights and abortion rights now fear setbacks instead of further gains. But the outcome emboldened the anti-abortion movement and breathed new life into the religious right's campaign for broad exemptions from same-sex marriage and other laws. Kelly Shackelford, head of First Liberty Institute, a legal group that specializes in religious freedom cases, said that, for his cause, the environment will transform from "brutal" under...

    NEW YORK, September 25 (C-Fam) World leaders broke out into applause 27 times during the Pope’s address to the UN General Assembly today, including when he called for the defense of the “right to life,” and called the family the “primary cell of any social development.” Pro-life and pro-family advocates welcomed the speech as an improvement upon the more subtle references to their causes during the Pope’s address to the U.S. Congress. Culture of Life President Robert Royal called the UN talk a powerful and explicit defense of human life and natural marriage even though the words “abortion” and “homosexuality”...

    Ames claimed that on the morning she returned from a two-month maternity leave in July 2010, the company refused to let her use its lactation rooms because its policy required mothers to complete paperwork seeking security access and wait three days for processing. She had been unaware of that requirement. A company nurse suggested she use a wellness room that was occupied at the time, but also cautioned that doing so might expose her milk to germs. Ames said she was in pain while waiting for that room to be vacated, when her supervisor informed her that she would be...
  • Arkansas Supreme Court halts same-sex marriages in state

    (Reuters) - The Arkansas Supreme Court on Friday halted the issuing of marriage licenses to same-sex couples in the first and only state in the U.S. South to allow gay marriage. About 500 gay and lesbian couples have married since a state judge last week overturned the Arkansas ban on same-sex unions. The state attorney general's office had requested the stay to stop counties from issuing licenses and also appealed the decision that struck down the state's gay marriage ban. The Supreme Court issued the stay in a brief, unsigned order, without elaborating on its reasoning. Pulaski County Circuit Judge...

    OTTAWA, May 12, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – “How do you sell an abortion? In the US it’s very simple: You do it through sex education,” former abortion clinic owner Carol Everett told participants at the Rose Dinner following the National March for Life on Thursday in Ottawa. Everett, who ran a chain of four abortion clinics in Texas from 1977-1983 — where an estimated 35,000 unborn children were aborted before her dramatic conversion and departure from the industry — told about 430 participants at the dinner that she had a goal of becoming a millionaire by selling abortions to teenage girls....

    HOLLYWOOD, CA, May 9, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The media and entertainment industry must end its intolerance of Christians who believe in the sanctity of life and marriage or risk alienating an enormous part of the viewing public, according to a certified brand specialist. Chris Stone, the founder of Faith Driven Consumer, has launched a new online campaign encouraging HGTV to #FlipThisDecision, after the home improvement network chose to cancel a new reality show after a left-wing website “exposed” its hosts' pro-life, pro-family views.

    GRANDVILLE, MI, May 12, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A woman peacefully holding a sign outside a Michigan church on Mother's Day was attacked by a pro-gay activist, who threw an ice slushie drink in her face. On Sunday afternoon, Christine Weick stood at an intersection in the city of Grandville with a sign that read, “Thank your mom today for not being gay.” Her message was that Mother's Day is a celebration of children and the natural family, something incompatible with homosexuality. A man later stood by her side and held up a sign supporting homosexuality. As a camera crew from...

    Former Alabama Sen. Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., a prisoner of war for more than seven years in North Vietnam, died on Friday in Virginia Beach. Mr. Denton was 89 years old. His son, Jim Denton, told The Washington Post, which first reported the news, that his father died of a heart ailment. Mr. Denton, a retired U.S. Rear Admiral, was shot down over the city of Thanh Hoa in Vietnam in 1965 and captured while leading a bombing mission. He later wrote a book about his experiences. Mr. Denton grabbed national attention in 1966 when he was forced to give...

    These days there aren't too many big pro-family victories to celebrate. But Sunday's St. Patrick's Day Parade in South Boston was one of them! It went wonderfully. The organizers stood up to the politicians and the rabid media who tried relentlessly to force them to include overt homosexual activist groups in their traditional Catholic, pro-family parade. And in the end many others stood with them. Labor unions, small businesses, several politicians, and an almost endless procession of military, religious, school, and other groups proudly marched before huge, cheering crowds.

    In Hungary, Croatia, and elsewhere in Eastern Europe, a pro-family, pro-life revolution and a rediscovery of Christian roots is occurring. While few in the American media have noticed, this trend should challenge those who simply lament Europe’s moral malaise. Unnoticed in the shadow of a secularized west, religion’s public role has been growing in the east since the collapse of communism. Since taking power in 2010, Prime Minister Viktor Orban—a charismatic veteran of Hungary’s anti-Communist underground—has victoriously stood at the forefront of what Americans call the culture wars. In 2011, Orban’s government ratified a new constitution that defines marriage as...

    At the end of a second week of--what can only be described as--an abysmal public relations failure, Arts & Entertainment Television revealed something very intriguing to the watching world. Their foolish action in the non-issue of Phil Robertson, exposed three rather profound lessons that voters and candidates would be very advised to pay attention to. 1. Economics still defeats activism -- Let's face it, the minute the spokespeople from GLAAD began screaming on the other end of the phone, A&E executives got nervous. A lot of A&E programming is aimed at rather promiscuous audiences. GLAAD surely threw around threats of...

    I'm on a rant at the moment, so I thought this would be as good a time as any to go on the record with my humble opinions about Obama's efforts to destroy America morally, culturally, financially, socially, politically, militarily, economically, etc. (My, my, Obama's a busy little dictator wannabe, isn't he?) I have been saying for several months that the gays in the military agenda is not the final objective, but just another link in the chain that will ultimately weaken and enslave America's citizens and destroy our country and way of life as we once knew it.

    VATICAN, December 20, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) - Fr. Federico Lombardi, Director of the Vatican Press Office published an editorial Saturday responding to mainstream media denunciations of Pope Benedict’s message for World Day of Peace. In the message, released December 14, the pope noted that “serious harm to justice and peace” comes from denying the true principles of respect for life and promotion of the “natural structure of marriage as the union of a man and a woman.” Lombardi noted that the media storm resulted specifically from the pope’s comments on traditional marriage. “This has happened,” he said, “because the pope, in...

    The Washington Times ^ | 10/1/12 | E.W. Jackson
    For more than 50 years, the black community has been the wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party. That may be changing. In spite of the overwhelmingly liberal voting patterns of black voters, they are an essentially conservative community. Americans of African descent are more pro-life and pro-family than the average white voter and as conservative on social issues as any white evangelical. Democrats have managed to monopolize the black vote in spite of the vast chasm between the two on social issues. This philosophical difference has become more pronounced in the past 20 years, as liberals have embraced far-left...

  • Great Family Foundation OP ED: Lawmakers should protect family values

    When the General Assembly returns to town all eyes focus on the state budget. Despite media-driven perceptions that the legislature obsesses over "controversial" social issues, economic issues dominate every legislative session, and 2012 will be no exception. Given the new Senate configuration, however, members will be expected to multitask and address other issues that were on the minds of many Virginians when they voted in November. Representing tens of thousands of those voters, The Family Foundation will have several legislative priorities we hope will find success. The first indicator of whether change has come to the state Senate will occur...
