    The alleged shooter in the Family Research Council shooting may have had a second target, according to the head of the group. Floyd Corkins II allegedly had the address of the Traditional Values Coalition in his possession. The organization, a lobbying group, has similar views to the family research council. “Clearly we need added protection after this. My understanding is we were the next target,” says Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition. Traditional Values Coalition is located in the 100 block of C Street in southeast D.C.

    Senators confirmed the judicial nomination of Marisa Demeo, an openly lesbian candidate, late Tuesday. The 66-32 vote fell largely along partisan lines. Republicans opposed to Demeo have blocked her confirmation to the D.C. Superior Court bench since her March 2009 nomination by President Obama. n a letter by the socially conservative group Traditional Values Coalition, senators were urged to reject Demeo because she's openly gay. The letter, obtained by the progressive website ThinkProgress.org, was published Tuesday. “As an open, radical lesbian, Demeo has openly condemned the effort to amend our Constitution to protect marriage as a one-man, one-woman union,” the...

    A vote is looming this week in Congress on a bill that one conservative activist warns would not only silence Christian opposition to homosexuality, but also would legitimize deviant forms of "sexual orientation." A markup vote is expected Wednesday in the House Judiciary Committee on the Local Law Enforcement and Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009. House Democrats only have to give 24 hours' notice before the vote. The measure (H.R. 1913) sponsored by Representatives John Conyers (D-Michigan) and Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) would add homosexuals and transgender people to the list of classes federally protected from so-called "hate crimes."

    House Committee Holds She-Male Hearing: Why? Unreported in most of the media last week was the first congressional hearing ever held on alleged "transgender discrimination" in the workplace. This hearing was to offset the overwhelming opposition that arose last year from fellow democrats who forced the removal from the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) of language for special rights for she-males, drag queens, cross dressers, and those having sex changes with operations or hormones. This hearing was a charade attempting to show how normal these lifestyles are.

Daniel Webster, a beleaguered Episcopal priest, clearly has issues. And the American Family Association definitely has issues with him. The Tupelo, Miss.-based Christian family advocacy group unleashed an e-mail protest blitz, mobilizing its 3 million members effectively to try to defrock the fictional Webster and get his new "anti-Christian" television series, "The Book of Daniel," excommunicated from the NBC schedule.

    WASHINGTON — Since July 1, when Justice Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement, social conservatives have fretted that President Bush might name a moderate to fill her seat — a betrayal, they warned, of Bush's campaign promises and their unwavering support for his reelection. But those jitters turned to jubilation Tuesday night as leading conservatives praised appellate court Judge John G. Roberts Jr. as an ideological soul mate. "There's no question that President Bush is a promise keeper," said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, which is marshaling support among evangelicals for Bush's judicial nominees.

    MUCH TIME MAY PASS before we fully understand the political ramifications of the Terri Schiavo case. For now, though, it seems that Republicans are taking a fearful beating. Opinion polls consistently show that a large majority of Americans disapproved of the effort--bipartisan, to be sure, but led by Republicans--to keep Mrs. Schiavo alive. To add insult to injury, most poll respondents hold the seemingly-inconsistent belief that the Republicans are not sincere, but are trying to capitalize on the Schiavo tragedy for political advantage. One reason for this perception may be the "GOP talking points memo" that was allegedly distributed on...

    Petition drive seeks to limit sex education By JACKIE BURRELL Contra Costa Times WALNUT CREEK - The same man who led the drive to put Gov. Gray Davis' recall on the state ballot in 2003 now has received state approval to circulate petitions for a proposition to severely restrict sex education in public schools. The petition language released Wednesday by Secretary of State Kevin Shelley's office and written by Attorney General Bill Lockyer's staff is straightforward, calling for a ban on sex ed in kindergarten through sixth grade and for daily parental permission slips for older students. But the actual...

    A team of researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have just published a study that claims to have mapped the human genome and discovered chromosomes related to sexual orientation in males. The study, "A genomewide scan of male sexual orientation," was led by homosexual researcher Dr. Dean Hamer and other pro-homosexual associates. Dr. A. Dean Byrd, a member of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) Scientific Advisory Committee reviewed the study and concluded: "The researchers' attempt to manipulate the data to come up with something meaningful was not realized.

    Washington, DC –Jonathan Turley, a constitutional scholar at George Washington Law School has just penned what is a clear sign that our nation is not on a slippery slope toward sexual degradation and moral decline—rather our country is on a rocket-propelled missile into social chaos. Turley argued in Monday’s issue of USA Today that polygamy is the next logical step in the goal of social activists to overturn any remaining barriers to the redefining of marriage. Turley says he detests the idea of polygamy but he has put forth the legal arguments for its legalization. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia,...

    They say that if you stack the US Tax Code one page upon another, the pile of paper will reach into the heavens. I’m sure that’s true, for two very simple reasons. First, like most laws written in Washington, those seeking special consideration in the code have lobbied for language that addresses their individual concerns, and nearly everyone is seeking special consideration these days. Second, if “we the people” knew exactly what Washington was doing with all of our hard earned money, there would be a lynch mob on the steps of congress before sundown…so keeping the details buried in...

    The Centers for Disease Control's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report for October 29, 2004, describes a rare homosexually-transmitted venereal disease that may soon come to the United States. The disease is called Lymphogranuloma Venereum (LGV), a variant of Chlamydia and it is spreading in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Sweden. The disease rarely occurs in the U.S. or other industrialized nations. The CDC report noted that the Netherlands had only experienced an average of five cases of LGV a year but in 17 months preceding September, 2004, the nation had tracked 92 cases of LGV.

    Country superstar Wynonna Judd is being slammed by fellow Christians for agreeing to perform on a lesbian cruise.

Oliver Kellman, executive director of the group told CNSNews.com, "I think we can make a dent. I think there [are] a lot of folks out there with money who want to hear the message, but as far as catching up with the Democrats, we'll have to wait and see." According to Kellman, "The majority of African-Americans believe in economic opportunity and not handouts...It's a new world, and with that comes new political affiliations."
