    Ahead of next month’s special session on sexuality intended to resolve an issue that has dogged the United Methodist Church for decades, a group of affiliated college and university presidents issued a strong call for full inclusion of LGBTQ Christians. The group, which represents presidents of 93 United Methodist-affiliated colleges and universities, urged the denomination to amend its policies and practices to recognize the “sacred worth” of people regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. The three-paragraph statement won unanimous approval in a vote taken Friday (Jan. 4) by the National Association of Schools and Colleges of The United Methodist...

    There’s a lengthy, sordid history of the damage children suffer because of “progressive” values and policies. In 2018, the harm went beyond passive side effects. The left is now brazenly cheering over the corruption, pain and heartbreak of children. And sometimes, their deaths. What can be done? We must work within all lawful means possible to stop this evil. Here are some of the year’s worst examples, although this article could go on and on: 10. Colleges are now recommending 4-year-olds engage in sexual activity. Yes, some UC Santa Barbara academics have advanced the idea that pre-schoolers should engage in...

    CATHOLIC schools will have to teach children about gay, lesbian and transgender relationships – even though it is against their ethos – under plans for the overhaul of sex education. A draft report from the Oireachtas Education Committee, which has been seen by the Irish Independent ,is calling for radical changes in how sex education is taught to children in both primary and secondary schools. Under the new plans, school children would be educated about gay, lesbian and transgender relationships “without distinction as to their heterosexual counterparts”. It also recommends changing legislation to ensure that schools must teach the new...

    BRUSSELS, December 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Poland and Hungary blocked the inclusion of “LGBTIQ” rights in a common European Union statement. Last week representatives from Poland and Hungary annoyed other European Union (EU) member states by vetoing the inclusion of the “LGBTIQ” acronym in a joint statement by employment and social affairs ministers meant to promote “gender equity in the digital era.” LGBTIQ is a reference to people who derive their identity from lesbianism, homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism, intersexuality, or an experimental “questioning” approach to sexuality. The European employment and social affairs ministers collectively form the EU Employment, Social Policy, Health...

    I was born into a family of famous gay pagan authors in the late Sixties. My mother was Marion Zimmer Bradley, and my father was Walter Breen. Between them, they wrote over 100 books: my mother wrote science fiction and fantasy (Mists of Avalon), and my father wrote books on numismatics: he was a coin expert.

    December 5, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A Catholic German ethics professor calls Cardinal Müller's recent remarks on homosexuality “unbearable” and claims that, just as the Church's teaching on the death penalty has changed, the teaching on homosexuality is also open to change. Cardinal Gerhard Müller, the former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), has been under constant sharp criticism since his 21 November interview with LifeSiteNews, in which he had drawn a link between homosexuality and clerical sex abuse. Several prominent Catholics – among them Father Klaus Mertes, Father Ansgar Wucherpfennig, General Vicar Klaus Pfeffer –...

    Full title........................School has SEVENTEEN children changing gender as teacher says vulnerable pupils are being 'tricked' into believing they are the wrong sex................An astonishing 17 pupils at a single British school are in the process of changing gender, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. Most of the youngsters undergoing the transformation are autistic, according to a teacher there, who said vulnerable children with mental health problems were being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex. The whistleblower says few of the transgender children are suffering from gender dysphoria – the medical term for someone who feels they were born in...

    Gone are the days when intimate relationships were shared between two people. And an Australian woman, who identifies herself as polyamorous, has opened up about how she embraces sexual relationships with multiple people. Penny has been in polyamorous relationships for five years - a lifestyle where she enjoys spending time with more than one person on an emotional level. Like any monogamous relationship, the woman goes out with the man or woman she 'loves' on romantic dates, cuddles up with them on the couch and has sex with them.

    About a year ago I saw a feminist program which talked about how virginity wasn't such a big deal and how girls should feel free to experience their sexuality so long as pills, creams, condoms, and legal consent forms were involved. Through the course of the program the act of sex was reduced to little more than a routine biological function akin to going to the bathroom or eating. Ironically, as the program sought to warn girls about being objectified it also managed to reduce men into support systems for penises. And the sole purpose of the penis was clearly...

    How can we help “transgender school children” (i.e., school children with gender dysphoria)? The necessarily frank answer is by keeping them away from the overreaching, uncompromising assertions made by the most vocal — though by no means most representative — trans activists. That’s the conclusion I’ve come to after debating a trans “celebrity” for The Spectator podcast about my cover story last week. You can listen here. In my essay, I examine the situation in schools both in the U.K. and the U.S. I start by sharing how, as a teacher in Scotland, I was trained by a government-funded campaign...

    “Your daughter’s 14, huh?” asked the guy at the wedding reception. “I guess you’re heading for the Grandma Danger Zone.” I wasn’t offended exactly (it was a party, after all, and most of us were drunk and speaking freely), but I was a bit surprised by the casualness with which a relative stranger commented on my child’s theoretical sexual activity. Trying to move the conversation along, I chuckled politely and replied, “Well, if she did get pregnant now, I would help her get an abortion, so that won’t be an issue.” There was a long silence as this man and...

    Pastor of the Shrine of the Immaculate ConceptionATLANTA (ChurchMilitant.com) - The pastor of a pro-homosexual parish is flaunting his attendance at a drag show in August. Monsignor Henry Gracz, the pastor of the heavily pro-homosexual Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Atlanta, posted on his Facebook that he attended a drag performance at "Lips" on Aug. 1. The same month, Abp. Wilton Gregory appointed Gracz "spiritual director" to sex abuse victims despite the fact he is unapologetically pro-homosexual. In June 2017, Gracz allowed Sr. Jeannine Gramick and Francis DeBernardo from the dissident New Ways Ministry to speak at the Shrine...

    The state of New Jersey has a new regulation in its Department of Education: a provision that prevents schools from informing parents of their child's preferred gender and gender pronouns. New Jersey became the eleventh state to have a specific gender provision in its state regulations, per NorthJersey.com. The local newspaper claimed that the rules are "intended to promote a safe and successful learning environment for [children]." The regulation, which was signed into law by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, says that gender identity decisions reside with the student, not the parents, despite the fact that students are children...

    It’s a Wednesday evening in February, and time for the weekly meeting of Pleasure@MIT, an acronym for “peers leading education about sexuality and speaking up for relationship empowerment.” The Pleducators are a wonderful group of people committed to changing the culture at MIT to reduce sexual misconduct by encouraging healthy communication and relationships. Serving as a Pleducator and being part of the VagMo cast have made me believe that change is possible, and that I can be a part of it. And I know now that I can always go back to the learning zone. After all, if I could...

    Controversy is a part of art, and for Texas art teacher Stacey Bailey, that statement is all too true. In September 2017 Bailey was allegedly barred from her classroom at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School in Arlington, Texas after a parent complained she was pushing her "homosexual agenda" on her students. Bailey claims she had shown her students a photo of her and her wife's fish costumes from the Disney movie "Finding Nemo," which elicited the initial complaint from parents. When she taught her students about gay artist Jasper Johns, she said parents complained again, resulting in Bailey being placed on...
