    Depriving a transgender inmate with severe gender dysphoria of sex reassignment surgery is a form of cruel and unusual punishment, a federal appeals court ruled Friday, affirming a lower court ruling. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the state of Idaho to provide the surgery for trans inmate Adree Edmo. The ruling is the first time an appeals court has ordered a state to provide gender-affirming surgery to a prisoner, and the decision is at odds with a ruling issued earlier this year by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Idaho's Republican governor, Brad Little, vowed to...

    If you ask my detractors, they would tell you that the reason I do not celebrate gay pride is that Im a bigot. A hater. A homophobe. A transphobe. And I understand their perspective. After all, no matter how Christian I claim to be, if I tell a gay couple I do not believe they are truly married in Gods sight, that feels like hatred to them If I tell a woman who identifies as a man that I still believe she is a woman, that feels like hatred to her. From their perspective, I can understand how unchristian my...

    To begin, I want to make crystal clear that I'm opposed to the burning of flags as a means of making a statement. It's childish, not to mention pointless. I'm even less of a fan of burning flags that don't belong to you. That's beyond pointlessit actually harms your cause and it is a crime. I support property rights, after all. That being said, charging someone with a hate crime for burning a flag is a bit much. But that's exactly what may happen to idiot arsonist Tyresse Singleton.The New York City Police Department broke the news on Twitter...
