  • A Child of Gay Parents Writes to Justice Kennedy

    Crisis Magazine ^ | February 27 2015 | Katy Faust
    Dear Justice Kennedy, June is nigh, and with it will comes your ruling on the most contentious political issue of our time: marriage. I write because I am one of many children with gay parents who believe we should protect marriage. I believe you were right when, during the Proposition 8 deliberations, you said “the voice of those children [of same-sex parents] is important.” I’d like to explain why I think redefining marriage would actually serve to strip these children of their most fundamental rights. It’s very difficult to speak about this subject, because I love my mom. Most of...

    Openly gay political commentator Sally Kohn says, in a new essay for The Washington Post, that she hopes her daughter is gay too, despite already being attracted to boys. Kohn, a well-known political commentator on networks like CNN and Fox News, says that like all parents who want their children to follow in their footsteps, she also has hoped that her daughter would turn out to be gay. Despite those wishes, however, Kohn says she’s already starting to notice that her six-year-old daughter is most likely straight and that leaves her a bit disappointed. “I live in the liberal bubble...

    The child arrived at a Florida school Friday with bruises all over. But it was the T-shirt the child was wearing that gave it away. “I currently have all F’s in all of my classes. I am not aloud to have a boyfriend no time soon,” the shirt read. “So back off before I get another good woopin like I got last night.” That attempt at public shaming led to the arrest Friday of Melany Joyce Alexander, 31, who was charged with child abuse. She posted a $2,500 bond a day later. “She beat the child with a belt, and...

It analyzed 512 children of same-sex parents, drawn from a pool of over 207,000 respondents who participated in the (US) National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) at some point between 1997 and 2013. Results reveal that, on eight out of twelve psychometric measures, the risk of clinical emotional problems, developmental problems, or use of mental health treatment services is nearly double among those with same-sex parents...

That's the good news. The bad news is that none of the experts is confident he has an answer, and neither is Pearlstein. What is family fragmentation? The facts are easy to state.

Despite the Saudi justice ministry’s failed efforts to date to set 15 as a minimum age to marry a girl in the kingdom, Grand Mufti Abdulaziz declared there is nothing prohibiting Muslim men from marrying girls even younger. As Grand Mufti, Abdulaziz is president of the Supreme Council of Ulema (Islamic scholars) and chairman of...

    The recent surge in abortion laws -- more were enacted between 2011 and 2013 than in the previous decade -- met both success and defeat in court challenges in 2014. That fight over women's access to abortion likely will continue in the months to come, as both houses of U.S. Congress will be Republican-led, as will even more state houses. What issues will be at the battle lines? Ten states have laws in place banning abortion after 20 weeks; Nebraska was the first to pass theirs, in 2010. Proponents argue that 20 weeks is when a fetus can begin to...

    When Planned Parenthood can’t bully its way to what it wants, it can still wish ill upon things that don’t go its way – like the Helms Amendment. In a tweet last week, the group used The Smiths and their song, “Unhappy Birthday,” as a mouthpiece to convey its sentiments toward the Helms Amendment: Since 1973, the Helms Amendment has ensured that abortion stays out of US foreign aid appropriations. The amendment was the first major pro-life victory after Roe v. Wade, setting the tone for pro-life legislative efforts going forward. It ensures that the hard-earned dollars of U.S. taxpayers...

    It stands to reason that if abortion is viewed as morally and legally correct, other immoral acts will become socially acceptable as well. Now, according to a judge in Australia, incest is one of those acts. During the trial of a brother charged with raping his younger sister, Judge Garry Neilson said that incest may no longer be morally unacceptable because the only reason it is criminal is due to the potential for abnormalities in any conceived children. Neilson said that thanks to contraception and abortion, there is no longer that risk. The man on trial had raped his sister...

    Today, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in United States v. June, a case that has received little attention, but will have far-reaching implications. The case boils down to this: Can the federal government actively conceal material evidence in order to escape liability? Common sense says no. The Obama administration says yes. June involves the Federal Torts Claims Act (FTCA) and a doctrine called “equitable tolling.” Prior to 1946, the doctrine of sovereign immunity prohibited citizens from filing suit against the government. That all changed in 1946, when a military plane crashed into the Empire State Building, killing and...

Dr. Ulrich “George” Klopfer failed to report an abortion he performed on a 13-year-old girl in South Bend, Indiana, in 2013. Having sex with a minor 13 or younger in the state of Indiana is prosecuted as a felony, and abortionists must report performing abortions on young girls to the Department of Child Services and the Indiana State Department of Health within three days....

    Back in 2013 most of the nation, other than Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood, were both shocked and horrified when the “pro-choice” atrocities of Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell came to light. Gosnell operated with state complicity. Governor Tom Ridge, a “moderate” Republican, had allowed his clinic to operate without any inspections and to perform partial birth abortions in defiance of Pennsylvania law outlawing that particular form of genocide. Now the stage for the same horror is being set in Virginia. It should not be so but under the maladministration of Clinton bagman and fixer, Terry McAuliffe who is taking a...

    Among the feats many Michael Brown protesters pulled off as they stormed Seattle’s Westlake Mall on Black Friday was targeting a children’s choir set to sing Christmas carols, KING-TV reported as part of a video segment. A journalist with KING, Mark Wright, wrote this on his Facebook page: Some of you may know that tonight’s tree lighting at Westlake Center was cut short by protesters. I feel really bad for a group of children from the 5th Avenue Theater. They came tonight, excited to sing. When the protesters overtook the balcony, the children were absolutely terrified. I helped usher them...

    The New Republic magazine celebrates its 100th anniversary with a special section called “100 Years, 100 Thinkers.”Unfortunately, the categories into which these “minds who’ve defined our century” are helpfully slotted are almost parodically First World, elite-uptown-liberal:“Architecture.” “Environmentalism.” “Songwriting.” “Diplomacy.”And of course, “American Civil Rights.” (Zzzzzzzz….)Unless you count “Medicine,” no hard sciences were deemed worthy of consideration.An alien browsing this section would be forgiven for assuming that man never set foot on the moon.But who cares when someone named Alice Waters “made (local) lettuce sexy!”(And besides, The New Republic assures us that “Martians need only watch one of [Richard Pryor's] concert...

    Abortionist Curtis Boyd, who has been committing abortions since before they were legalized in 1973, was featured Friday by UK-based publication The Guardian in a piece on American abortionists. The tone of the piece is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life, rather than more accepting of the tenets of Roe v. Wade, since 1973. To drive this point home, the piece includes this startling infographic from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute displaying the radical pro-life shift in opinion as evidenced by legislative restrictions on abortion. For The Guardian and for abortionists like Boyd America’s lack of...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business has frequently employed a clergy council to attempt to justify abortion to Christians and the religious community. In June, LifeNews exposed how the abortion giant issued a pastoral letter claiming the Bible justifies abortions. Planned Parenthood issued a “pastoral letter” through one of its political lobbying arms—the Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board—saying that “many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion,” that “abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures,” that “there are clergy…from all religions who support women making this complex decision,” and that Planned Parenthood “will refer you to someone...

    New York, NY (CFAM) — There are more young people in the world now than ever before. According to the United Nations Population Fund’s latest report, this represents an unprecedented opportunity for progress, but only if future generations are smaller. UNFPA’s prescription to ensure a “demographic dividend” includes freely available abortion for adolescents, removing age of consent, drug and prostitution laws, and reduced parental involvement in the sexual formation of their children. “[Y]oung people require a wide range of sexual and reproductive health services, including . . . safe abortion care,” says the 2014 State of World Population, released Tuesday....

    You won't see the news in the mainstream media. After all, this is not a priest. 44-year-old Stefan Johansson, former President of the RFSL (Riksförbundet för homosexuellas, bisexuellas och transpersoners rättigheter), or the National Association for the Rights of Homosexuals, Bisexuals and Transsexuals, was sentenced on 24 October to five years in prison and ordered to pay 60,000 euros for pain and suffering caused by rape, pimping and paedophilia.

    In a killing described as "an American horror story," a man and his girlfriend were charged with murder for beating her 3-year-old son to death in their West Caln mobile home, Chester County District Attorney Thomas Hogan said Thursday. Hogan said his office would seek the death penalty against Gary Fellenbaum, 23, and Jillian Tait, 31, for torturing Tait's son Scott McMillan to death over three days with a homemade whip, a curtain rod, a piece of aluminum siding, and their fists, at one point while he was taped to a chair. The boy was discovered Tuesday after he died,...

    FULL TITLE: Father charged with sodomizing and abusing his nine-year-old son is found hanged in his jail cell A man that had been accused of committing numerous sex crimes against his nine-year-old son allegedly killed himself this week. Defense attorney Adam Bollaert told Al.com that on Monday evening his client Carl Herold was found hanged inside a cell at Clay County jail. At the time of his death, Herold had been in the middle of an extradition for federal child pornography charges in New York state, the website reported. Last year, authorities arrested Bollaert and his partner Charles Dunnavant in...

    Schools found ‘indoctrinating pupils about gay people’ will face being closed down under new rules designed to promote ‘British values’, the Government confirmed today. The Department for Education insisted it was ‘nonsense’ to suggest teachers would have to give lessons on gay rights. But a spokesman insisted Ofsted, which has introduced the new rules the wake of the Islamist Trojan Horse plot to radicalise pupils in Birmingham, was right to ensure schools were not breeding grounds for homophobia. A spokesman said: ‘Ofsted are rightly ensuring that schools do not indoctrinate pupils about gay people - or any other people -...
