    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Massachusetts hospital police official linked to the so-called cannibal cop case pleaded guilty on Thursday in Manhattan federal court to conspiring to kidnap and kill women. New Hampshire man Richard Meltz, 65, faces up to five years in prison on each of two conspiracy counts when he is sentenced later this year. The plea deal came just weeks before Meltz and two co-defendants were scheduled to go to trial on charges that they hatched a kidnap plot online. The case stems from an investigation into New York police officer Gilberto Valle, whose trial and conviction...

    A gay Web site’s praise of bawdy bathroom behavior in Malden City Hall has sparked a tempest over the toilet. The mayor is ordering the first-floor men’s room to remain open while city councilors want it locked up or a security plan put in place. “The public needs these kinds of facilities and I don’t see the need of closing it,” said Malden Mayor Richard Howard, adding others are “overreacting” to the gay site. An anonymous letter sent to the City Council alerted them to a five-star ranking on the Gay Universe site for male-on-male sexual encounters in the stalls.The...

    Man, it's getting hard to keep up with all the developments at DePaul. From NPR last week: DePaul University in Chicago -- the largest Catholic university in the United States -- is launching a "queer studies" program that looks at issues of homosexuality. DePaul will be the first Catholic university to offer a minor in the topic, and could face the wrath of the Vatican. Jason DeRose of Chicago Public Radio reports. Will DePaul offer a minor in "conservative studies?" Or even "libertarian studies?"

    WINONA, Minn. - Winona Senior High School has prohibited students from wearing a certain style of baggy pants because of safety concerns. Although the straps haven‘t caused any injuries at the school, Sampson said they could possibly hook students onto something or someone and would be especially dangerous around shop class equipment. Students said the new prohibition is aimed at groups who some label as "Goth" or "freak." They said teachers have been less stringent enforcing the dress code among students in other groups who wear skimpy blouses, T-shirts promoting alcohol or pants that show underwear.

    SHOP AT TARGET -- THEY SUPPORT LGBTQ FAMILIES Rainbow Law is calling for the LGBTQ community to support and shop at Target stores this holiday season. After Target refused to allow the Salvation Army to place bell-ringers and kettles at their stores (because they discriminate against the LGBTQ community), the anti-gay equality crusaders began their usual lies and propaganda campaign. There is no reason to let this attack go unchallenged. We have the power to counter the far right's relentless assault on our civil rights and liberties. And one of the most effective methods for defeating unfair practices is by...

    The Mass. homosexual movement 2005: Plans, quotes, and photos from the Nov. 18 statewide homosexual activist strategy session. === If you think the homosexual movement is satisfied with their progress this past year, think again. They've got big plans for 2005 to do even more. To solidify what they've got, and to push the envelope even further. If you think you can just stop worrying because things can't get any worse, you're quite wrong. They've only just begun. On Thursday, November 18, the homosexual activists had a gala "public forum" at the fancy Colonnade Hotel in downtown Boston to celebrate...

    Canada's largest bank has canceled its promotion of homosexuality with its employees after a pro-family organization sponsored a national boycott of the institution. As WorldNetDaily reported, the Royal Bank of Canada directed its employees to "be supportive" of "gay, lesbian and bisexual issues" and to show that support by displaying the homosexual movement's rainbow triangle symbol in the workplace. The statements were made in the first edition of a new newsletter called "Rainbow Space." "Voluntarily displaying this sticker shows gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered co-workers that they can feel safe with you, and shows unsupportive co-workers that you won't tolerate...

    Despite being kicked out of last year's inaugural event, Christian activists plan to protest today's "Gay Community Day" hosted by the Philadelphia Phillies Major League Baseball team. Monday's game in Philadelphia against the Colorado Rockies will feature the Phillies' twelve-game winner Eric Roberts on the mound. It will also feature special recognition of members of the local "lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered" (LBGT) community. The second annual "Gay Community day" at the Phillies' stadium is being promoted by the Gay & Lesbian Lawyers of Philadelphia (GALLOP) and the Philadelphia chapter of the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA).

    A Home for a Gay Channel By BILL CARTER Published: May 30, 2004 EXECUTIVES of MTV Networks seemed to be caught a bit off guard by the hostile reaction to their announcement last week that they intend to create the first cable entertainment channel devoted to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender viewers, called Logo. Religious groups, including the Traditional Values Coalition, denounced the idea as amounting to "moral anarchy" and promised to organize a boycott of companies that advertise on the channel. But the executives behind the project remain convinced that MTV Networks will be able to overcome any impediments....

    <p>An AT&T Broadband employee who was fired after refusing to abide by company rules that he said violated his religious beliefs about homosexuality has won a federal court case. Judge Marcia S. Krieger of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado awarded Albert Buonanno of Denver $146,269 for lost salary, loss of 401(k) matching contributions and compensation for emotional distress in a Friday ruling released this week. The judge found that although there was no direct religious discrimination against Mr. Buonanno, AT&T Broadband failed to show it could not have accommodated Mr. Buonanno's beliefs "without undue hardship" to the company he had been with for nearly two years. Mr. Buonanno objected to language in a new employee handbook issued in January 2001 that said "each person at AT&T Broadband is charged with the responsibility to fully recognize, respect and value the differences among all of us," including sexual orientation. He was fired after refusing to sign a "certificate of understanding" acknowledging that he agreed to the policy. The Civil Rights Act requires employers to reasonably accommodate the religious beliefs of employees unless the employer can show it will create an undue hardship on the company to do so. Mr. Buonanno felt his Christian beliefs prevented him from valuing or agreeing with homosexuality, which he views as a sin, but he pledged not to discriminate against or harass anyone, said John W. Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, the group that represented Mr. Buonanno. "This issue is about more than an objection to homosexuality," Mr. Whitehead said. "It concerns the freedom of conscience — the right of individuals to object to something they believe is wrong, especially when it contradicts their religious beliefs, whether it is war, abortion, homosexuality or a number of other issues." A spokesman for Comcast, which owns AT&T Broadband, said, the company "is disappointed in the court's ruling," which they said appears to ignore attempts by companies "to foster diversity and nondiscrimination in the workplace." The spokesman, who asked not to be named, said the company is reviewing the case and might appeal the ruling. Mr. Buonanno did not ask the court to reinstate him as a quota specialist, instead seeking monetary compensation. He now works for Mental Health Corporation of Denver as a counselor. The ruling could embolden other Christians or religious people to challenge similar policies, said Mr. Whitehead, who expects court challenges to the "sensitivity training" companies sometimes require, which he said often aims at training workers to accept and value diversity, including homosexuality. "I think Buonanno is just the tip of the iceberg," Mr. Whitehead said. Mr. Buonanno wasn't asking anything that would unduly burden the company — such as granting him every Wednesday off for religious purposes, Mr. Whitehead said. "All he was saying that he couldn't agree that he would value the homosexual lifestyle ... which as a fundamentalist Christian he sees as a sinful lifestyle," said Mr. Whitehead. But AT&T made "no attempt to even reasonably accommodate him," and they couldn't show undue hardship would occur if they did. In the ruling, the judge listed several things the company could have done to avoid the situation, such as communicating better, getting more details about Mr. Buonanno's concerns, clarifying what the company intended by the language in question, accepting his pledge not to discriminate, or even rewriting the language to make it less ambiguous.</p>

    LAW OF THE LANDSupreme Court rejects Boy Scouts' appealState can exclude group due to policy against homosexual leaders Posted: March 8, 20044:45 p.m. Eastern © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com The U.S. Supreme Court today allowed Connecticut to exclude the Boy Scouts of America from a state charitable program because of the Scouts' policy barring avowed homosexuals from leadership. Critics said the high court's refusal to revisit the ruling by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals threatens not only the First Amendment right to expressive association but also the right to free exercise of religion. The decision has "far reaching implications that could threaten the...

    How legalizing gay marriage undermines society's morals By Alan Charles Raul WASHINGTON - The promotion of gay marriage is not the most devastating aspect of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's recent decision. The more destructive impact of the decision for society is the court's insidious denial of morality itself as a rational basis for legislation. This observation is not hyperbole or a mere rhetorical characterization of the Goodridge vs. Department of Public Health decision. The Massachusetts justices actually quoted two opinions of the US Supreme Court (the recent anti-anti-sodomy ruling in Lawrence vs. Texas and an older anti-antiabortion ruling, Planned...

    My husband and I married at the Denver County courthouse in 1999. The judge's secretary, a black woman, didn't hide her surprise that I was black and the groom was white. Even on the cusp of the 21st century in the progressive West, I guess it was still shocking for a black woman and a white man to marry. But at least it was technically legal, unlike in Alabama at the time. It wasn't until 2000 that Alabama residents voted to remove a provision from that state's constitution that declared that "the legislature shall never pass any law to authorize...

    The Constitution of the United States of America is one of the most brilliant documents humanity has ever produced. It allows for an orderly and open process of governance by the people while balancing the majority's authority with the protection of individual rights. Consequently, the prejudices of even a significant majority of our citizens are not sufficient to abridge the constitutional rights of individuals or marginalized groups. In the early days of our nation, our interpretation of the Constitution was not nearly so inclusive. Women and slaves were denied full participation in the process that created the laws that governed...

    American companies continue to lead the world in politically correct foolishness. Perhaps General Motors should be the poster child for this stupidity disease. The company's "diversity" initiative includes spending company money to support "affinity groups" that celebrate the "collective mixture of similarities and differences" that make up GM's workforce. However, the company has refused to recognize groups of employees that share a common religious background, while openly supporting at least one affinity group of gay and lesbian employees. The "logic" behind this discrimination is bewildering. One employee won't stand for it any longer and has filed a discrimination complaint against...
