    A Christian-run bakery in the U.K. could be facing a court case after it refused a request from a customer to make a cake featuring the "Sesame Street" characters Bert and Ernie with a slogan to "support gay marriage." Ashers Baking Company in Belfast declined the order from the customer, a gay rights activist, but now mat face legal action from watchdog group Equality Commission, BBC News reported on Tuesday. In a statement, the 24-year-old general manager of the Christian bakery said that the order, featuring portraits of the two puppets side by side alongside the logo of gay rights...

    Well get 'em next time. Sadness mixed with pride engulfed the nation as the United States men's soccer team was defeated 2-1 in the World Cup Round of 16 by Belgium on Tuesday in Salvador, Brazil moving the "Red Devils" into the World Cup Quarter-Finals and sending the Yanks home. After a closely contested 90 minutes that ended level at 0-0, the dream run for America in the 2014 World Cup ended on the foot of winger Kevin De Bruyne in the opening minutes of overtime. Belgium's Romelu Lukaku then scored again in the 104th minute of overtime, putting...

    WaPo had this story a few days ago but Byron York has a smart post today about its deeper significance, as an expose of the White House’s latest lie about illegal immigration. Why are illegals from Central America, many of them kids, now streaming across the southwest border at a rate of 35,000 per month? Ask an Obama spin doctor like Josh Earnest that question and he’ll tell you there’s a simple explanation: Violence. They’re fleeing into Mexico to get away from gang wars, then continuing north to the United States. Ask the illegals themselves, though, and you get a...

    Pro-life group Life Action released an undercover video Tuesday titled, "Sexed: Planned Parenthood's Dangerous Advice for Kids," which exposes counselors talking to a 15-year-old girl about bondage and sadism, circumventing statutory rape laws, and recommending a clinic that will perform illegal abortions on sex trafficked girls age 14 and younger. "As viewers can see in our preview, Planned Parenthood has an institutional policy of endorsing and recommending dangerous sexual behaviors to underage girls. These include whipping, beating, breaking the skin, and asphyxiation. Remember, the counselors in these videos believe that they are talking to a 15-year-old girl," Drew Belsky of...

According to Buck McKeon, the chairman of the House Armed Services committee, the Obama administration's briefers told he gathered House members that the person responsible for the decision to make the deal was not President Obama but Chuck Hagel, the secretary of defense.

    A U.S. federal judge struck down Idaho's ban on gay marriage on Tuesday, saying it relegated same-sex couples to a second-class status in violation of constitutional guarantees of equal protection under the law. The ruling by U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale was the latest in a string of decisions by federal judges against state bans on same-sex matrimony that, if upheld by higher courts, would sharply broaden access to marriage for U.S. gay couples. Dale said her decision would go into effect on Friday at 9 a.m. local time, unless put on hold by a higher court. Marriage rights have...

Over the past few weeks there have been two good examples of this. At Harvard, we had senior Sandra Korn (“a joint history of science and studies of women, gender and sexuality concentrator”, whatever that might be) declare that academic freedom is an outdated concept and that “academic justice” is a much better concept: In its oft-cited Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure, the American Association of University Professors declares that “Teachers...

According to CNN, China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense announced the find. The satellite images were taken on Sunday, March 9. CNN Senior Producer Vaughn Sterling reports that the images show three objects, sized 13x18 meters, 14x19 meters, and 24x22 meteres. The Boeing 777 took off from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Friday, and was headed for Beijing, with 239 people on board. So far, a massive search including dozens of ships and...

    The Congressional Budget Offices warning that the Affordable Care Act will cause employment to fall by the equivalent of 2.5 million full-time workers is just the latest of Obamacares negative surprises. Unfortunately, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosis statement that we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it is proving to be depressingly accurate. The laws defenders legitimately argue that it is not sufficient merely to criticize the Affordable Care Act; responsible action requires proposing an alternative. Fortunately, Republicans have a good one, and its been hiding in plain sight for the past...

    Brussels (AP) - Prince Charles lashed out Wednesday at climate change skeptics, saying they are playing "a reckless game of roulette" with the planet's future. Skeptics are having a "corrosive effect" on public opinion, the British heir to the throne added. "Their suggestion, that hundreds of scientists around the world ... are somehow unconsciously biased, creates the implication that many of us are secretly conspiring to undermine and deliberately destroy the entire market-based capitalist system," he said. Many doubters -- particularly in the United States -- have dismissed scientific evidence supporting warming of the earth due to human activity, arguing...

Some respondents assumed that my article reflected a negative attitude toward guns, but nothing could be further from the Truth. I not only believe that every good man in America should own at least one firearm, I think that every time gun manufacturers are targeted by Bloombergettes with lawsuits or legislation, we should buy another firearm to support...

    Carol Browner is leaving her position as White House "energy czar," and a staff shake-up is likely to eliminate her post altogether, according to Democrats familiar with events. The czar position, and Ms. Browner herself, have been lightning rods for critics of the president's environmental-policy agenda and a reassurance to its supporters, who liked having a top official in the White House devoted to their priorities. The White House health czar position may also be eliminated, said people familiar with the process. Ms. Browner led the administration's effort to gather votes in Congress for legislation to limit emissions of greenhouse...

But the rush on the left to affix some of the blame on her for the assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has suddenly turned...

Researchers at Canadas Simon Fraser University (SFU) studied the psychological effect that Christmas displays have by asking test participants to work in a room that either contained a Christmas tree or did not. The results showed that for those participants who did not celebrate the holiday, being in a room with a Christmas tree made them feel less sure of themselves. The result was the opposite for those who...

    Apparently, no one told Harry Reid to check Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution before passing S510, the food-safety bill that Democrats hailed as a major lame-duck session achievement earlier this week — and which ran afoul of their own party in the House. Section 107 of the bill raises taxes, and as any Constitutional scholar can attest — or anyone else who has actually read the document that Senators swore to uphold when taking office — only the House of Representatives has that power: A food safety bill that has burned up precious days of the Senate’s lame-duck...

    WASHINGTON -- The Senate Tuesday rejected a GOP bid to ban the practice of larding spending bills with earmarks - those pet projects that lawmakers love to send home to their states. Most Democrats and a handful of Republicans combined to defeat the effort, which would have effectively forbidden the Senate from considering legislation containing earmarks like road and bridge projects, community development funding, grants to local police departments and special-interest tax breaks. The 39-56 tally, however, was a better showing for earmark opponents, who lost a 29-68 vote earlier this year. Any votes next year should be closer because...

Earlier on Friday it announced he should also be found not guilty of inciting hatred. Prosecutors Birgit van Roessel and Paul Velleman reached their conclusions after a careful reading of interviews with and articles by the anti-Islam politician and a viewing of his anti-Koran film Fitna. They said comments about banning the Koran can be discriminatory, but because Wilders wants to pursue a ban on democratic lines, there is no question of incitement to discrimination as laid down in...

His comments ratcheted up the pressure on once-obscure pastor Terry Jones to call off the event.
