    (RNS) Lighten up, Ash Wednesday.A New York-based advocacy group called Parity is asking Christians who favor LGBT equality  — “queer positive Christians,” in their parlance — to show their support by wearing “glitter ash” on their foreheads to mark Ash Wednesday (March 1).Ash Wednesday kicks off the six-week somber season called Lent that leads to Easter, and is usually marked in churches with the color purple. Traditionally, plain gray ashes, blessed by a minister or priest, are smeared on the foreheads of Christians to symbolize repentance.“This is a way for queer Christians and queer-positive persons of faith to say ‘We are here,'”...

Hutchinson said he was forced to resign from Cassopolis United Methodist Church after he told the bishop about his gay partner. According to the United Methodist Church's guidelines, that...

    SAN ANTONIO, TX–The most recent James O’Keefe expose released on Breitbart Texas showed a Battleground Texas field organizer engaging in a seemingly illegal data mining operation where confidential information from voter registration forms was being collected in an effort to help elect Wendy Davis as governor of Texas. The video has now triggered a process by which an investigation carried by the State of Texas may occur. In an interview with local San Antonio news, Bexar County Election Administrator Jacquelyn Callanen admitted to submitting a report to Texas Secretary of State.

    The Dutch priest who refused Communion on February 13th to his town's openly homosexual Carnival “prince” is now facing police complaints from homosexual activists.The complaints follow a protest by homosexualists at the Catholic parish in Reusel on Sunday, which was held in response to the decision of the pastor, Fr. Luc Buyens, to withhold Communion from Gijs Vermeulen, 24, at the town's traditional Carnival Mass.Fr. Buyens had alerted Vermeulen in advance, stating that he must refuse him Communion because the young man had made a public display of his active homosexuality leading up to the town's Carnival festivities.Anticipating the protest,...
  • Ayers and Obama crossed paths on boards, records show (CNN: Obama is a liar)

    -snip- But the relationship between Obama and Ayers went deeper, ran longer and was more political than Obama -- and his surrogates -- have revealed, documents and interviews show. A review of board minutes and records by CNN show Obama crossed paths repeatedly with Ayers at board meetings of the Annenberg Challenge Project. The Annenberg Foundation gave the project a $50 million grant to match local private funds to improve schools, and Ayers fought to bring the grant to Chicago, according to participants and project records. The project's organizing committee asked Obama to serve as the board chairman in 1995....
  • Christ and Forgiveness

    One of our colleagues here on FR has asked for an explanation of my comments about sexual preferences. Here's what I said. In the last two thousand years, the most important advance in moral and ethical practice and teaching is forgiveness. Christ embodied that virtue and risked - and lost - his life for it. No other single characteristic has so greatly transformed religion and society. It's the force that says to a criminal: "repent, make amends, and you can return to society." Forgiveness, even more importantly, liberates those who have been trespassed against, allowing them to move past the...

    Neoconservatism is hard to pin down as discrete political theory; Mr. Podhoretz [prefers] "tendency." In any case, as a practical matter, it denotes the mentality of those who moved from somewhere on the political left to somewhere on the right, primarily during the late '70s. It had "two ruling passions," according to Mr. Podhoretz. On the one hand, the neocons were repulsed by the countercultural '60s radicalism that came to dominate the American liberal establishment. On the other, they argued for a more assertive, muscular foreign policy (at the time in response to Soviet expansionism). ... The "war on terror,"...

    The Modesto Bee ^ | November 27, 2005, 08:11:15 AM PST | Michael G. Mooney
    There undoubtedly are many people who consider Stanley "Tookie" Williams a ruthless and cold-blooded killer, fully deserving the sentence of death by lethal injection awaiting him Dec. 13. But those people, say his supporters, only see the wild-eyed young man of the early 1970s — the co-founder of the notorious Los Angeles Crips street gang. They don't see the man he's become today. A small knot of Modesto activists hope to change all that through a teach-in Saturday on Williams and the transformation they say he's undergone while confined to Death Row at San Quentin State Prison. "He's valuable to...

    I have recently got myself in a fair amount of trouble for a DUI. There is no question that I am guilty of the basic offense. I am willing to pay the fines and do the time. That all seems the way it should be. What I would like to do, however, is to go into court (the next time), and express my sentiments to the judge. These would not be real polite. I cannot repeat them here. Think of the worst things you could say to someone and you will be close. My question is: How much more trouble...

    Foul-mouthed and unrepentant: Saddam Hussein at bay By David Usborne in New York 19 December 2003 Iraqis stampeded to news stands yesterday to buy copies of a newspaper showing the humiliation of their captured former leader, Saddam Hussein. The edition of Al-Mutamar was sold out in Baghdad by noon. The photograph shows Saddam with Ahmed Chalabi, one of his oldest foes and now on the Iraqi Governing Council. Four Council members went to meet him on Sunday after he had been cleaned up. They said he was foul-mouthed and unrepentant. "He would not apologise to the Iraqi people," Mr Chalabi...

  • Church's rejection can fuel hatred ("Excluding homosexuals does not reflect God's way")

    07/17/2003 7:54:20 AM PDT · by dead · 137 replies · 374+ views
    Excluding homosexuals does not reflect God's way, that of compassion, writes Dorothy McRae McMahon. The Bible is an amazing testimony to the wonder of the grace and faithfulness of God as people journeyed down the ages. It gives clues to the way we are to live with that God, but only clues. It takes little reading to discover that understandings on many issues, and particularly on human relationships, changed over the centuries, even in biblical times. We do not now have slaves and masters. We do not in our church believe that men are morally superior to women and thus...

    According to the Weekly Standard and later echoed on MSNBC's Joe Scarborough Show, Sen. Tom Daschle — a member of American Life League's Deadly Dozen — has been sent a letter from his home diocese of Sioux Falls informing him he can no longer publicly identify himself as a member of the Catholic Church because of his unrepentant support of abortion and other pro-death legislation. "The recent actions involving Daschle are totally in agreement with the teachings of the Catholic Church and make crystal clear the point of our Deadly Dozen ad: you cannot be Catholic and pro-abortion," said Judie...
