    The Daily Targum-student newspaper at Rutgers University,New Brunswick,NJ carried this report of a "silent protest" by members of the Lesbian,Gay,Bisexual,and Transgendered Community, and their "straight allies". It appears the LGBT members have committed themselves to a "vow of silence"-symbolic of how LGBT members are silenced-some of the members placing duct tape over their mouths to demonstrate their commitment to this vow. A bit later on,some of the demonstrators must have removed their duct tape,because-according to the report-a "kiss-in" began. (Link to the story for further details. I'm outa here !)

    Man Charged With Murder for Silicone Injection Death Mar 25, 2004 By C.G. Wallace/ Associated Press Writer/ ATLANTA (AP) - A man accused of injecting industrial-grade silicone into men who were living as women and wanted to look more feminine was charged with murder after one of them died. In an indictment unsealed Wednesday, Stephen Oneal Thomas, 31, was also charged with practicing medicine without a license. Thomas, who is living as a woman, had been working Dougherty County for at least a year, holding "pumping parties" where he would inject silicone into cheeks, lips, breasts and buttocks, said prosecutor...

SPARKS 末末末末People flocked by the hundreds to Cathedral of Hope to hear the sermons of senior pastor Michael Piazza. 末末末末 Preparation for Sunday-morning services at the Cathedral of Hope resembles backstage on opening night of a Broadway production. The halls bustle with activity as volunteer coordinators and staff tick off their to-do lists. Everything must be perfect, from preparing urns of coffee to ushering in latecomers to ordering multimedia presentations that flash headlines, film clips and still...

    Think back: How long ago would you have scoffed at the idea of two men getting married? Or the Supreme Court endorsing sodomy? Or "domestic partners" enjoying the same rights and benefits as married couples? Or network television featuring shows with gays and lesbians? Or companies such as Avis announcing, "Domestic partners are automatically included as additional drivers. No extra fees charged. No questions asked." Or even that you would take the term "sexual rights" seriously? It wasn't that long ago. The forces for perversion have subjected us to a propaganda campaign of such intensity that most Americans have surrendered...

    Bias-crime law a hard sell in Wyoming By Juliette Rule Published in the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle CHEYENNE - Not so long ago, the U.S. Constitution that protected everyone failed to allow women at the polls. A law changed that, just as it did for blacks who sought equal protection under the stewardship of leaders like the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Such is the argument some make to bring a bias-crime law to the Wyoming Legislature. This state is one of just four that haven't passed a single piece of hate-crime legislation. The Equality State joins Arkansas, Indiana and South...

    Here she is again, strolling K Street, her black skirt very short, her black top very tight. It's Wednesday, 11:35 p.m. "Too early to be out here," Tanekea says. Still, she stands on a corner of Third and K streets NW, just as she did Monday night, hoping to turn a trick: maybe $40 or $50 for oral sex, she says, and "more" for "something more." With long hair, long legs and freshly shaved skin, Tanekea, 21, heads to Fifth Street, then back to Third. The sidewalks are dimly lighted. Two patrons from the nearby Louis' Rogue Go Go Lounge...

    ".....about two lesbians getting "married" in Canada who are former editors for the Post. A "gay-marriage announcement" for them ran on the "Weddings" page of the Post. They are Deb Price, a columnist for the Detroit News, and Joyce Murdoch, a managing editor for politics at the influential National Journal magazine who had served as an editor and reporter at the Post for 10 years. This background may help explain why the Post accommodated them by abandoning its traditional requirement that the "Weddings" page only feature announcements relating to legal marriages, engagements to be legally married, or wedding anniversaries. "It...
  • Columnist Farah Warns of "Pushy Homosexuality"

    Pushy homosexuality Posted: July 30, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern ゥ 2003 A new USA Today /CNN /Gallup Survey suggests there is a backlash of public opinion against homosexuality after the U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning Texas' sodomy law. It's not surprising. The decision was widely seen as a judicial push for the agenda of homosexual political activists eager to see their lifestyle not only accepted nationwide but promoted by government and major cultural institutions. Defenders of the Texas law had contended the ultimate goal of the case was not to end sodomy laws, but to advance the "ambitious agenda"...

    The 1st homosexual school -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: July 29, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern ゥ 2003 New York City has done what many of us would have considered unthinkable just a few months ago announced plans for the first taxpayer-funded, all-homosexual high school. I don't believe this would be happening now without the U.S. Supreme Court decision invalidating the anti-sodomy law in Texas. Now the homosexual activists are working at a fever pitch to transform Western civilization. Indoctrinating the next generation is an important step in that process. Welcome to the brave new world of the Harvey Milk High School,...

Well - I TOLD YOU SO! Remember how one of the big key elements in arguing it Justice Kennedy wrote about the way it would impact the way we do art? He was talking primarily about movies - BUT I STILL TOLD YOU SO! Now that I've got that out of my system a bit... Hey, have you been to the mall recently? I'm...
