    July 19, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Elton John said in an interview this week that it will be “heartbreaking” for his son to grow up without a mom. Elton and his homosexual partner David Furnish got ‘married’ in 2005, and, after trying unsuccessfully to adopt a child in Ukraine, arranged for a boy child, Zachary, to be born to a surrogate mother in 2010. John admitted to Matt Lauer on NBC Today, “It’s going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn’t got a mummy.” John said he is also worried about when Zachary goes to...

    Once again CNN is cheerleading the fight for gay rights, this time within the Boy Scouts. An effusive Starting Point panel welcomed gay activist Zach Wahls on Wednesday and celebrated his cause of pushing the Boy Scouts towards acceptance of openly-gay scouts and leaders. Wahls is no stranger to CNN, as back in May he was lauded as a "very powerful" activist during a soft interview. On Wednesday, the CNN panel oozed admiration for him. "I'm a big fan. I've followed you for a little while," Starting Point regular Margaret Hoover told him. "You're a wonderful spokesman for the effort...

    The European Commission has said in a written note that respect for gay rights is a legal criterion for EU accession. It cited the 1993 so-called Copenhagen criteria for EU eligibility and article 2 of the EU Treaty, which prohibit discrimination against "minorities." It also cited articles 10 and 19 of the EU Treaty and article 21 of the European Charter on Fundamental Rights, which explicitly forbid discrimination on grounds of "sexual orientation." "Rights of LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] people thus form an integral part of both the Copenhagen political criteria for accession and the EU legal framework...

    From the moment the push to redefine marriage began, the most militant of the would-be redefiners deployed a “scorched earth policy” toward marriage to achieve their goals. In other words, they proved willing not just to alter, but also to destroy marriage and the family in order to establish conditions where they could reconstruct marriage – and all of society – according to their own designs. And part of this scorched earth policy, as we’re now seeing it in California, is the effort to recognize more than two parents for children. That’s right—SB 1476, a bill that gives judges the...

In a letter penned for her local newspaper, Jane urged Christian voters not to be put off by candidate Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith, as he still maintains conservative views in line with Christian beliefs despite his differing religion — including his posture on gay marriage and abortion. “I think any Christian should spend much time in...

    A lesbian student has been kicked out of college and arrested after it emerged she was behind a string of anti-gay messages slipped under her dorm room door, police said. After the notes were found in Alexandra Pennell's room at Central Connecticut State University in March, hundreds came out in support of the student at a campus rally against hate crimes. But when police hid a camera along the hallway outside her room, they allegedly caught her leaving the notes herself - and she admitted she had written them to get the attention of her roommate.

Proponents said the law would allow transgender residents to live more openly. "This a tremendously historic and life-changing day for transgender people across the state,...

Having just come out officially in favor of legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the President followed up on June 1 by issuing this year’s proclamation setting aside the entire month to commemorate the valuable contributions that gays, lesbians, transvestites, and an odds-and-ends assortment of sexually- and gender-confused individuals have made to American society. “The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)...

Actually, the headline sums it up: "Team Obama panics, and it's only May." That's right. President Barack Obama -- that Everest of integrity -- and his paid hacks are in full panic mode. As Curl observes, it's mid-May, and the president is focusing on shoring up what should be a base constituency -- gays. Previously, Mr. Obama was trying to drive wedges between the GOP and women, Hispanics, and young voters to shore up support from these cohorts. A president up...

    RICHMOND Va. -- In a testy interview today with CNN's Brooke Baldwin on the Virginia legislature's recent refusal to appoint openly gay Richmond prosecutor Tracy Thorne-Begland to a judgeship, Del. Robert G. Marshall, R-Prince William, declared that "sodomy is not a civil right." . . Marshall, a U.S. Senate candidate and one of the General Assembly's most conservative members, denied that he had lobbied against Thorne-Begland because he is gay, but instead termed him an "activist." . . "He can be a prosecutor if he wants to," Marshall said, "but we don't want advocates as judges." . . Marshall rejected...

    WE love the person but we hate the sin. The comment was made yesterday by the Methodist Church as it maintained its stand against the promotion of the activities of sexual minority groups. Church acting general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said the church was adamant that a union between a man and a woman alone was sacred and the scriptures abhorred any other kind. "It (the promotion of sexual minority rights) is against the moralsandthe teachings of the church, we do not condone any such activities."

    The Obama administration “strongly objects” to provisions in a House defense authorization bill that would prohibit the use of military property for same-sex “marriage or marriage-like” ceremonies, and protect military chaplains from negative repercussions for refusing to act against their consciences, as, for example, in being ordered to perform a same-sex marriage ceremony. In a policy statement released Wednesday, the White House Office of Management and Budget outlined numerous objections to aspects of the fiscal year 2013 National Defense Authorization Bill (H.R. 4310). The bill was reported out of the House Armed Services Committee last week and is set to...

    President Obama's affirmation of gay marriage threatens to undermine the near-monolithic black support Obama enjoyed in 2008. Several members of the black clergy now say they intend to sit out the presidential election. One poll from last November found black opposition to gay marriage at 58 percent, higher than the rest of the country, which is about evenly split. The real question is this: What took black church leaders so long to reconsider their near blind support for the Democratic Party? The historical strength of black churches has been that of a moral and spiritual refuge in a once-hostile country...

    Last October, news broke that Shorter University, a Christian college in Rome, Georgia, had decided to ask its employees to sign a controversial pledge that affirms that they are not engaging in homosexuality, among other forbidden activities. Now, after scores of employees refused to sign the document, the college, which is affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention, has reportedly received a massive number of resignations

    The Culture War rages all around us. One side in this war supports abortion and promotes homosexual marriage. They would lower the age of consent and make divorce as easy as changing your clothes. In fact, they have already succeeded in advancing their agenda in Europe and America...

    People have asked what Obama could possibly have been thinking to announce the final step in his "evolution" in favor of same-sex marriage right after another state resoundingly rejected the notion and despite the fact that most Americans oppose it. Whether or not Joe Biden forced Obama's hand on the issue, which I doubt, there is little question that Obama was going to make the announcement. The only question was when. Many assume he decided to do it before the election to increase his fundraising among Hollywood liberals and other leftists. But all the funds in the world might not...

    African-American Church Leaders Condemn Obama For Gay Marriage Support BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Just days after President Barack Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage, pastors and priests around Maryland took to their own pulpits with their reaction– and in some cases– condemnation of the president. Derek Valcourt explains the president’s comments have folks on both sides of the issue fired up. Both sides hope the president’s position helps sway votes in their favor when the issue hits Maryland’s ballot this November. “I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama said. When Obama announced that his position on same-sex...

    “I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual men and women marrying one another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties.” -- Vice President Joe Biden on “Meet the Press.” The economy is faltering and Mitt Romney scores better with voters on his ability to turn it around than does President Obama. If that dynamic remains the main force behind the 2012 election, Obama will lose. But, if Obama can find enough wedge issues with which to pry away potential Romney voters, he might...

    North Carolina voters decide today whether their state should have a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. This, as a new Gallup poll shows half of Americans think same-sex marriages should be legal. Meanwhile, President Obama hasn't said anything yet about comments from Vice President Biden and a member of his cabinet supporting same-sex marriage. Six months before Election Day, the White House and the president's campaign spent Monday dealing with an issue they'd rather be left out of the political discussion because, no matter what the president may feel, it's risky politically. The White House played defense Monday, insisting nothing...
