    It never ceases to amaze me when I come across reports of problems in our society which I had no idea were even issues. One of these cropped up last night while reading the latest blog entry from Washington Post editor Jonathan Capehart, where he discusses a peculiar aspect of demographic data collection. We’re apparently having a tough time accurately counting the number of gay, lesbian and bisexual people in the United States and it’s not because of too many people being in the closet. (Though I’m sure that’s still an issue as well.) No, the problem currently under examination...

    Best Full Title: FR Exclusive / Breaking: April 1st Good News!: The Woman Named "Gay" Was Found and Rescued; Her Name Will No Longer Be Used To Promote Sexual Perversion! How many years, how many generations has it been, that the woman named "Gay" was kidnapped? And all of these years that she has been held hostage, and has had her name abused, and used as a euphemism, and as a political and sexual buzzword / codeword for sex perversion. The exact details of her rescue have not yet been released. Gay will naturally need some time for recovery and...

    A married, heterosexual gym teacher at a tony Upper West Side private school was fired because his lesbian supervisor disapproved of his “traditional family status,” the canned teacher claims in a new Manhattan lawsuit. Gregory Kenney, 50, taught gym at the Trinity School on W. 91st St. for 16 years before he was let go in June 2012. Kenney, who lives with his wife and three young children in LI, says he was a well-liked employee at the elite institution that counts Truman Capote, Ivanka Trump and Eric Schneiderman as alumni, until a gay athletic director named Pat Krieger took...

    Sometimes a high school baseball coach gets thrown a few curves too, such as that initiated when one of our players came to the mound as I was pitching a scrimmage for the kids, to ask whether he could talk to me after practice.
  • Do Gay Men Have a Genetic Advantage Over Straight Men in Building Successful Careers?

    07/12/2013 10:31:02 AM PDT · by pinochet · 93 replies
    Gay people make up only 2 percent of the people in society. How did they end up having so much power, that they are able to impose their will on 98 percent of the population in America and other Western nations? I am aware that social conservatives are uncomfortable discussing genetic reasons, because it gives gay radicals an excuse to engage in sin. But acknowledging a genetic factor does not remove moral responsibility from gay people, and they remain under obligation to engage in Biblical sexual behavior. Gays will be put in the same situation as married men who are...

    I went out on the street this morning, and to the first stranger I met I said, “I’m straight.” He looked me up and down, evidently taking note of my slouching posture, and said: “You don’t look straight to me. Try lifting your chin, pulling in your stomach and thrusting your pelvis forward.” “No,” I said, “I mean that I am straight sexually. I am a heterosexual.” “Why do you think I care?” the man said, and hurried on. Having learned a lesson from this first encounter, I changed my line when I approached the next stranger, a woman this...

    Vice President Joe Biden is rallying a defense of his boss, fighting slurs that President Obama is in over his head and lashing out at "Tea Party Republicans." In Oklahoma this week where Obama isn't high in the polls, the veep said the president isn't just smart, he's got strength and character. "People knew Barack was really bright, they knew Barack was straight, they knew Barack was a different kind of politician. What they didn't know was just how strong he was. Republicans spent a lot of time trying to tag him as a follower, not a leader. Well, he's...

    APOPKA, Fla. -- A man attempted to commit suicide at the Shoot Straight gun range in Apopka on Thursday afternoon, Apopka police said. The man survived the self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. The man’s identity was not immediately released. In June, a man walked into the Casselberry Shoot Straight location and took his life, police said. Casselberry police said an Altamonte Springs man walked in and waited until there was only one other customer inside. Tommy McWilliams then sent his mother a goodbye text message and told her he loved her before shooting himself. (Video at link)

    Psychologist Warren Throckmorton, associate professor of psychology at Grove City College, Pennsylvania once met a woman who was in a lifelong lesbian relationship and suddenly, with no prefaced desire to leave her lesbian lifestyle, fell in love with a guy at work. She left her lesbian partner and married the man. The American Psychological Association just published a report on whether therapists can make this change happen. In examining change therapy, which claims that people with homosexual desires can switch to heterosexual desires, the report says there is insufficient evidence that the therapies work. But it also found that while...

    CASSELBERRY, Fla. -- A mother shot and killed her son, and then herself, inside a Casselberry Gun Range Sunday afternoon, according to police. When Casselberry police arrived at the Shoot Straight Gun Range on South U.S. Highway 17-92 (see map) just after 4:00pm, they found two people had been shot in an apparent murder-suicide. Police identified the man as 20-year-old Mitchel Moore. The shooter, his mother, was identified as 44-year-old Marie Moore. Eyewitnesses said the pair was acting strangely and then the woman ran out of the room to get more ammunition. When she returned, eyewitnesses said, she shot her...

    DENVER, Oct. 24, 2007 – Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Navy Adm. Michael G. Mullen yesterday heard some hard truths when he asked hundreds of soldiers about their service. “All I want to do is start a family, buy a house and have some stability,” an Army captain ready to leave the service to better meet the needs of his family said in Fort Sill, Okla. “We need something better. That’s just not good enough,” another captain said of the 12-month home-station time between deployments. Still another young officer said he was planning to end his military service,...

    BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Tuesday the public is yearning to hear the truth from politicians, and he didn't spare his troubled campaign from a critical self-appraisal. "We are doing so poorly I thought maybe I would announce on this show that I'm running for president," McCain told Jay Leno in an appearance taped for broadcast Tuesday night on "The Tonight Show." "We have obviously made mistakes," the Arizona senator said. Lagging in fundraising and national polls, McCain said he was relishing the underdog's role and remained enthusiastic about his chances in 2008. Americans "are...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. - An initiative filed by proponents of same-sex marriage would require heterosexual couples to have kids within three years or else have their marriage annulled. Initiative 957 was filed by the Washington Defense of Marriage Alliance. That group was formed last summer after the state Supreme Court upheld Washington's ban on same-sex marriage. Under the initiative, marriage would be limited to men and women who are able to have children. Couples would be required to prove they can have children in order to get a marriage license, and if they did not have children within three years, their...

    Pop star Moby, known for his political statements as well as his music, says he'd do everything he could to make his future child homosexual should the singer ever have a family. He's also blasting conservatives Tom DeLay, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich as "amoral/immoral" right wingers. In an interview with Planet Out, a publication geared toward homosexuals, the musician, who is not "gay," was lamenting so-called homophobia in society when he suggested his future child should be raised to be a homosexual. "As a matter of fact, I was talking to my friend Laura, who sings on...

    A recent edition of the Hopewell News, a Virginia newspaper reported, “A Richmond attorney…has advised the Prince George County School Board not to block a proposed Gay-Straight Alliance club from forming at Prince George High School. ‘Should the issue be taken to court,’ said attorney D. Pat Lacy, Sr. of Richmond, ‘the school system would lose.’” (Gay-Straight Club Active at PGHS, Hopewell News, Oct. 6, 2006) Common sense, traditional values Americans are outraged that schools are allowing Gay-Straight Alliances (GSA) into schools. They want to know who is behind these clubs and what their true motivations are. The plain truth...
