    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?

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...

  • Do Gay Men Have a Genetic Advantage Over Straight Men in Building Successful Careers?

    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...

    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...

"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...

    Some people are attracted to women; some are attracted to men. And some, if Sigmund Freud, Dr. Alfred Kinsey and millions of self-described bisexuals are to be believed, are drawn to both sexes. But a new study casts doubt on whether true bisexuality exists, at least in men. The study, by a team of psychologists in Chicago and Toronto, lends support to those who have long been skeptical that bisexuality is a distinct and stable sexual orientation. People who claim bisexuality, according to these critics, are usually homosexual, but are ambivalent about their homosexuality or simply closeted. "You're either gay,...

    Governor James McGreevey was elected on his campaign theme “Straight Talk.” The problem with McGreevey’s “Straight Talk” is that “straight” is a cover-up of what he really is. There is really nothing “straight” about Jim McGreevey. His voting record in the State Legislature and as Mayor of Woodbridge is one of tax-and-spend liberalism. Now, he’s done an about-face and is preaching like a conservative Republican about cutting Big Government. If you believe that then you might want to buy some wetlands in Florida for development. Those who know McGreevey intimately know he is not “straight.” It’s just a word he...

As is well known, those who would preserve the institution between one man and one woman presented what they felt was the most effective way to protect marriage from an out-of-control, activist federal judiciary -- they offered a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the obvious, traditional institution that it is. But liberals just don't get it. Once again, the Washington Post's editorial page was out of touch with the reality of...

    As News Weekly goes to press, the NZ Labour Government has rushed legislation into Parliament which will effectively legislate for gay marriage, through what are called "civil unions". The bill was tabled in Parliament on June 21, and MPs were expected to vote on it on July 23 or July 24. The bill creates a new form of legal relationship - a registered civil union - that would apply to same-sex relationships and heterosexual couples. Running alongside the Civil Union Bill will be the Relationships (Statutory References) Bill that removes discrimination based on marital status. It amends over 1000 provisions...

    Recent findings that gays can go straight radically alters the debate on gay marriage, says David van Gend. The Titanic of Gay Rights, leaving all in its wake, is about to founder on a large and immovable fact. My concern is not for the glamorous first-class passengers - the prominent doctors and judges - or for the Mardi Gras exhibitionists leering and lurching across the deck, but for the unknown homosexuals down in their lonely cabins feeling sick. These are the ones who want to stop the ship and get off. The homosexuals who do not want to be homosexual,...

    About 100 teenagers — armed with ear-splitting screams and hand-lettered signs — rallied Saturday in Westwood in support of marriage for same-sex couples. "It's important for everyone to be able to live the way they want to," said Kate Heller, 16, a student at Winward School in West Los Angeles. Two teens from Winward's new Gay-Straight Alliance, Sarah Freed, 17, and Joe Goldman, 14, organized the Federal Building rally, which drew students, gay and straight, from high schools across Orange, Ventura and Los Angeles counties, along with parents, teachers and a fluffy white poodle. John Duran, mayor of West Hollywood,...

    Bill legalizing gay marriage in Calif. shelved for now LISA LEFF Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO - A bill that would allow same-sex couples to get married in California will die in a legislative committee and then be reintroduced at the end of the year with backing from the Assembly speaker and other prominent Democrats, the measure's author said.

    Protesters urge Calif. lawmakers to oppose same-sex marriage bill LOS ANGELES - About 200 people opposing same-sex marriages held a rally Tuesday, urging state lawmakers to vote against a proposed bill that would allow gay unions in California. The gathering at Pershing Square came one day after Massachusetts became the first U.S. state to legalize same-sex marriages, and rally organizers that included several religious and community groups worried California would be next. "The message we want to send is this - yesterday in Massachusetts same-sex marriages began. However, in California same-sex marriage ends today," said Luis Galdamez, spokesman for the...

At high school, she struggled to remember clothing labels and she could barely suppress her boredom when girlfriends obsessed over gossip magazines. STRAIGHT UP: Jacqui Wyles was 18 when she became a lesbian — now she wants a husband. DAVID WHITE/Sunday Star-Times She had "crushes" on older girls, but she had "normal, puppy love" boyfriends as well. As her relationships with boys became more sexual, though, they became more demeaning. "I had a lot of boys in the...

    U.S. cable network Comedy Central is planning to turn the American make-over hit "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" upside down with a new show called "Straight Plan for the Gay Man."Debuting in February, the new show will parody the Bravo channel's "Queer Eye" series and male stereotypes in general as a team of straight comedians -- the "Flab 4" -- teaches a succession of gay men how to pass as heterosexuals.The make-overs include lessons in such areas as spartan home decorating, oafish manners, less-than-fashionable wardrobes, and an overdeveloped ego to mask all personal failings, production executive Lou Wallach told...

    Religious group from Kansas to protest at Mepham H.S.   Play the video (10/17/03) BELLMORE - There's a bizarre new development in the Mepham High School hazing scandal. A religious group from Kansas is planning a controversial protest at the school on October 27. Members of the Westboro Baptist Church claim Mepham High School encourages homosexuality and that's what caused three football players to allegedly sexually abuse teammates at a Pennsylvania training camp. A few years ago, Mepham High School created the gay-straight alliance and other civil right's groups. Principal John F. Didden says the clubs help foster tolerance...
