Marriage is between a man and a woman for the purpose of building a nuclear family--the place where children historically and statistically fare best. Homosexuality is not just another alternative lifestyle or even a sexual "preference;" it is unhealthy and destructive behavior which negatively impacts individual persons, families, and society....

The bill, passed 141-110, adds sexual orientation as a protected category in Canada's genocide and hate-crimes legislation, which carries a penalty of up to five years in prison. "It's been a good week for equality in Canada," said the bill's sponsor,...

  • Wal-Mart: One Step Closer to Gay 'Family'

    This week Wal-Mart announced that they were expanding their non-discrimination policies to include non-discrimination against homosexuals. Although true discrimination, in any form, is abhorrent, this move represents another major victory for the anti-God crowd as they seek to destroy the biblical definitions of marriage and family. Certainly, Wal-Mart is not yet recognizing gay and lesbian "marriages", but as we've seen many times before, when a company explicitly acknowledges the "rights" of gays and lesbians as a supposed protected class, it is the first step down the slippery slope towards dissolution of the family as defined by God in creation. God...
  • Sexual orientation: a state of being, not just a sex act

    Sexual orientation: a state of being, not just a sex act Joan M. Garry I get uncomfortable talking about sex. As a good Irish-Catholic girl, public discussions of that most private of associations bring out the prude in me. When my school-age kids bring it up, we don't talk about the mechanics, but about love, family, respect, safety, honesty and responsibility. Otherwise, sex is a private matter between my partner and me. So I'm always taken aback when people confuse sexual orientation with what someone does in the bedroom -- as if they could divine what my partner and...

    SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) _ A Methodist conference passed a resolution ``to encourage the study of sexual orientation,'' which a spokesman said passed with little fanfare because it didn't make any changes. ``The key here is we're talking about study,'' said Don Perry, a spokesman for the Wyoming Conference of the United Methodist Church. ``We're not changing church policy.'' The Wyoming Conference, which is holding its annual meeting in Scranton, includes churches from seven northeastern Pennsylvania counties and six counties in southern New York. Perry said they have more than 70,000 members. The Rev. Susan Davis, a pastor at Bethel and...

    Confronting homosexual propaganda I was homosexual, so the media can't fool me into believing it is a healthy alternative lifestyle. Most homosexuals have had so many sexual partners they have lost count. A lot have had hundreds. I should call this article anything but moral and decent. Even though aids is killing people, the homosexual community continues to frequent bath houses disguised as health spa's and have countless sexual encounters in one night. They have sex in public bathrooms and in parks. They have sexual acts that would make a decent person sick. The sexual acts are so perverse, I...

    Cracker Barrel Taken to Task for Pro-Homosexual Policy Change (AgapePress) - A pro-family activist says a major restaurant chain has caved in to political correctness and will now grant special status to employees based on their bedroom behavior. The board of directors of Cracker Barrel has voted to add the term "sexual orientation" to the company's anti-discrimination policy. The unanimous vote occurred late last month following a shareholder meeting. In a report from the American Family Association, Cracker Barrel spokeswoman Julie Davis is quoted as saying she expects no impact on the day-to-day business -- because the company already has...

    Daughters, gay mother face off in court today Teen runaways fight to go to church school By JO ANN ZUNIGA Copyright 2002 Houston Chronicle Two teenage girls who say they ran away from home because they cannot condone their mother's homosexuality will face her in court today in a fight over who should decide where they go to high school. While it may be unusual for such a dispute to reach the courthouse, gay-rights activists say family conflicts over sexuality issues are common.

    SAN FRANCISCO - Don't try to be a judge in San Francisco if you work with the Boy Scouts. Judges in San Francisco are being barred from associating with the Boy Scouts because of the Scouts' opposition to homosexuals being in leadership positions. The new policy, adopted by the city's Superior Court, prohibits the court's judges and commissioners from participating in any organization that excludes members "... on the grounds that their sexual orientation renders them 'unclean,' 'immoral' or 'unfit.' " Bob Knight, director of the Washington, D.C.-based Culture and Family Institute, said the policy is ludicrous and offensive. "In...

    CNSNews.com) - A proposal to add "sexual orientation" to anti-discrimination statutes in local schools is causing dissension in Fairfax County, Va., where some parents claim the measure is unnecessary and could be used to undermine the religious convictions of students who believe that homosexual behavior is wrong. Parents and pro-family groups also complain that Fairfax school libraries contain books that depict homosexuality only in a non-critical light and that the testimony of people who left the homosexual lifestyle is not allowed in school board debates on anti-discrimination. "This is the work of gay activists in the school system," said Peter...

    Those on Capitol Hill still call their branch of government "The Congress," but they refuse to operate the branch as directed by the Constitution. In reality, those on Capitol Hill often act more like they are a combination state legislature and city council. For instance, last week the Senate was arguing about yet another hate crime bill (S. 625). Senate Republicans blocked action on the hate crime bill and Democrats were crying like little kids about it. That bill would make it a federal crime to violently attack someone because of their sexual orientation or other physical disability. The problem...
