Title: The Gay Bullies Are Being Exposed

The Gay Bullies Are Being Exposed

A well-liked, Christian man in England had his salary reduced by 40 percent after posting a comment on his Facebook page in which he stated that the government should not force churches to perform same-sex “marriage” ceremonies. And a Christian couple running a bed and breakfast in their family home in England was fined almost $6,000 for hurting the feelings of a gay couple by refusing to rent a room to them.

The headline to Amanda Platell’s report on the first of these two cases said it all: “The real hate crime is persecuting a decent man for his beliefs.”

According to Platell, “Adrian Smith is a kind and gentle man. Friends say the happily married father is a pillar of the community, a practicing Christian and a tireless worker for charity. Yet this week Mr. Smith was in court, defending accusations that he is a bigot whose personal views are so offensive and outrageous that they are incompatible with his work as a housing officer. His crime? To have put a posting on his personal Facebook page which said he thought civil partnerships ceremonies in church were ‘an equality too far.’”

Smith’s comment, posted on his personal Facebook page, explained, “‘If the State wants to offer civil marriages to the same sex, then that is up to the State; but the State shouldn’t impose its rules on places of faith or conscience.’”

Who could object to such a moderate, fair-minded comment? One of Smith’s co-workers did object, alleging that his post demonstrated that he was “blatantly homophobic.” As a result, “His salary was reduced by 40 percent by the Trafford Housing Trust, which claimed he was guilty of ‘gross misconduct’ because people might mistake his views as trust policy.” Yes, this actually happened in jolly old England.

Platell, who is no rightwing conservative, exclaimed, “What utter nonsense. And what a terrifying insight into the dystopian world we now live in—a world where a man can be penalised for a thought crime, even when that thought is shared by a huge proportion of the population.” And even when the thought is eminently reasonable.

Then there is the case of a devout Christian couple, Susanne and Mike Wilkinson, owners of a bed and breakfast, who refused to rent a room to a gay couple in 2010, just as they had previously refused to rent a room to an unmarried heterosexual couple. They were taken to court by the gay couple and, just last week, found guilty of hurting the feelings of the gay couple, resulting in a fine of nearly $6,000.

After the verdict, Susanne Wilkinson said, “We believe a person should be free to act upon their sincere beliefs about marriage under their own roof without living in fear of the law.” She noted that, “Equality laws have gone too far when they start to intrude into a family home. People’s beliefs about marriage are coming under increasing attack and I am concerned about people’s freedom to speak and act upon these beliefs.”

“I am a Christian,” she said, “not just on a Sunday in church, but in every area of my life—as Jesus expects from His followers. That’s all I was trying to do and I think it’s quite wrong to punish me for that especially after enduring over two years of vile abuse and threats.”

“We find this a strange justice,” she commented, “in a society that aspires to be increasingly tolerant.”

The Wilkinsons actually received hundreds of threatening emails (sometimes hundreds in an hour), with one message arriving “hand-delivered and handwritten in capitals,” saying, “I am coming to burn your house down.” So much for tolerance.

Back here in the States, Angela McCaskill, a deaf black woman serving as the Chief Diversity Officer of Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., was placed on administrative leave after signing a petition calling for a vote on same-sex marriage in Maryland. (See my article, “The Diversity Police Strike Again.” Note that it was two lesbian professors who reported McCaskill to the school administration.)

But instead of backing down, McCaskill held a press conference in which she said: “I’m dismayed that Gallaudet University is still a university of intolerance, a university that manages by intimidation, a university that allows bullying among faculty, staff and students.” Well said, Dr. McCaskill!

Barely 25 years ago, two gay strategists stated that it was essential to “Portray gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers.” They explained that, “In any campaign to win over the public, gays must be cast as victims in need of protection so that straights will be inclined by reflex to assume the role of protector.”

To be sure, there have been more than enough gay men and women who have been victims of hatred and violence, and they deserve society’s protection as much as any other citizens. But today, more and more gays are becoming the victimizers while it is civil-minded, decent straights who are becoming the victims.

The gay bullies are being exposed, and their very own strategy is working against them. It’s time for society to stand up for the victims of gay bullying.

Potential 10-year terms for 'bias' challenged by pastors
Supremes asked to block punishment for 'perceived sexual orientation' of 'victim'


A controversial law long pushed by homosexual activists but decried by one key congressman as an “unprecedented move to regulate and criminalize thoughts” may be headed for the Supreme Court.

The federal “Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009,” signed into law by President Obama, enhances penalties for “hate crimes” deemed to be motivated by “actual or perceived sexual orientation” of a victim.

The American Freedom Law Center announced today it has asked the high court to review a 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling that Michigan pastors who preached the biblical condemnation of homosexual behavior were not protected by the First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

“There is no doubt that this federal criminal statute violates the First Amendment on its face,” said Robert Muise of AFLC. “Thus, the act chills the exercise of free speech, specifically the free speech of our clients, who speak out against homosexuality. This chilling effect is sufficient to confer standing to challenge the act as a matter of law.”

David Yerushalmi, co-founder and senior counsel of AFLC, said “criminalizing religious opposition to homosexuality while elevating those who engage in homosexual acts to a protected class under federal law is a clear violation of the Constitution and a frightening abuse of federal power.”

AFLC said it has filed a petition to the high court asking for the review.

The case contends that the “hate crimes” law violates the plaintiffs’ civil rights, since it opens Christians to becoming the target of federal investigations, grand juries and even criminal charges just for opposing or publicly criticizing the homosexual lifestyle and “gay” activism.

The petition points out that all 50 states already have laws punishing violence, and that, as Attorney General Eric Holder himself has admitted, there is no evidence that “hate crimes” go unpunished at the state level. In 2008, of the 1.38 million violent crimes reported, only 243 dealt with the victim’s sexual orientation.

The Hate Crimes Act was dubbed by its critics the “**** Protection Act” after an amendment to explicitly prohibit pedophiles from being protected by the act was defeated by majority Democrats. During congressional debate, supporters argued that all “philias,” or alternative sexual lifestyles, should be protected.

The case originated with the Thomas More Law Center, with whom Muise previously worked.

It was in 2010 that Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, and Michigan-based pastors Levon Yuille, Rene Ouellette and James Combs filed the action against Holder.

The pastors explained that as Christian leaders with a duty to teach God’s Word on moral issues such as homosexuality, they have “willfully” and actively engaged in expressive conduct regarding the morality of homosexuality – conduct that could subject them to investigation and prosecution under the Hate Crimes Act, which does not limit its prohibitions to physical acts of violence, AFLC said.

But judges to date have said such a threat of investigation, prosecution and jail time doesn’t mean that the pastors have grounds to pursue a challenge.

U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, has supported the challenge, stating in a letter: “I want to commend you for your courage to challenge the constitutionality of the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009. As a Member of the House Committee on the Judiciary, I worked hard to stop this legislation in committee and on the floor of the House of Representatives. … Like you, I believe this ‘Hate Crimes’ Act is unconstitutional and marks an unprecedented move to regulate and criminalize thoughts.”

At the appellate level, the plaintiffs argued: “According to the Bible, which plaintiffs promote through their religious activities, homosexual acts are acts of grave depravity that are intrinsically disordered. The Apostle Paul, writing by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, declares that those who engage in homosexual acts ‘shall not inherit the kingdom of God,’ stating further, ‘And such were some of you … ‘” the appeal explained.

“Plaintiffs believe and profess that homosexuality is an illicit lust forbidden by God, who said to His people Israel, ‘Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is abomination.’ In every place that the Bible refers to homosexuality, the emphasis is upon the perversion of sexuality. The person engaging in homosexual behavior is guilty of ‘leaving the natural use of the woman,’ meaning that his behavior is ‘against nature,’ and thus contrary to God’s will.

“In Old Testament times in Israel, God dealt severely with those who engaged in homosexual behavior. He warned His people through Moses, ‘If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them,” the appeal continued.

Yuille is the pastor of The Bible Church in Michigan and national director of the National Black Pro-Life Congress. He hosts a radio program and “is often warned by his Canadian listeners that he will prosecuted under the new U.S. hate-crimes law for his public ministry.”

Ouellette is pastor of First Baptist in Bridgeport, Mich., with about 7,000 members, and the author of five books.

Combs is lead pastor of Faith Church, The Point Church, The Rock Church and The River Church, with about 10,000 members.

Obama signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act in October 2009 after Democrats strategically attached it to a “must-pass” $680 billion defense-appropriations bill.

The law cracks down on any actions that could be linked to criticism of homosexuality or even the “perception” of homosexuality. As Congress debated it, there were assurances it would not be used to restrict free speech.

Obama boasted about the “hate crimes” bill when he signed it into law.

“After more than a decade, we’ve passed inclusive hate-crimes legislation to help protect our citizens from violence based on what they look like, who they love, how they pray or who they are,” he said.

The bill signed by Obama was opposed by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which called it a “menace” to civil liberties. The commission argued the law allows federal authorities to bring charges against individuals even if they’ve already been cleared in a state court.

New pro-marriage television ads feature victims of bullying by homosexual activists

Two new television ads presented to voters by pro-marriage organizations are featuring victims of bullying by homosexual activists and their allies, whose habitual tactics of slander and intimidation were not widely reported by the mainstream media.

One video sponsored by the Family Research Council and aired in opposition to homosexual “marriage” in Maryland, shows 14-year-old Sarah Crank and her mother describing the viscous attacks against Sarah by homosexuals following the girl’s testimony in favor of traditional marriage in the Maryland state legislature in January.

(Story continues following video.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m737xpQa-Io

The video shows quotes from public comments made on the Internet including “I hope you get raped by your married parents,” and “Stupid ****, I hope you die on your birthday!”

“It never occurred to me in a million years that they would think about publicly attacking a child, publicly bullying a child,” says Crank’s mother, Kathleen. “And all of a sudden there was this outpouring of vile hatred that I simply couldn’t ever believe would be directed against a 14 year old girl.”

“I love my family, and like I said in my testimony, I just want everyone to have a mom and a dad,” Sarah remarks.

A second video aired by the National Organization for Marriage and the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance features an interview with firefighter Sarah Rowe, who defied her pro-gay union to publicly express her support for a traditional marriage amendment in Minnesota.

Rowe objects to her union involving itself in such issues, notes that pressure is put on people by claiming that “if you disagree with the gay marriage movement, you’re not nice, you’re mean-spirited, you’re bigoted,” and adds that “I just want to practice my faith and be allowed to practice my faith.”

Rowe eventually wrote a letter to the editor for her local newspaper detailing her opposition to her union’s position, and blasting the leadership for its “bullying” tactics against defenders of marriage.

“I chose to vote my conscience, resulting in being made to feel uncomfortable and unaccepted….Wouldn’t it also be nice not to feel bullied at a union meeting? Wouldn’t it be nice to be assured by union leadership that workplace rights will be protected?” wrote Rowe.

“Words were said against deeply held beliefs and this nation’s history and law, all a part of who I am. A list was passed around with groups in support of redefining marriage, one of which was false witness of my faith,” she also stated, but said that nonetheless “As a Local 101 member and Duluth firefighter, I’ll vote my conscience and vote ‘yes’ on the marriage amendment.”

Middle School Girls Forced to Ask Classmates for ‘Lesbian Kiss’ During Anti-Bullying Presentation

Imagine 13 and 14-year-old girls being instructed to ask one another for a lesbian kiss in a class exercise.  The girls had no choice. The parents were NOT informed. But hey, if it falls under “anti-bullying,” than who are you to question it, right?

Red Hook, New York – A recent anti-bullying presentation at a middle school in New York that focused on homosexuality and gender identity has angered parents after their daughters have come home to tell them they were forced to ask another girl for a kiss. According to reports, the session occurred last week at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, New York, near Poughkeepsie. A group of students from Bard College led two workshops for the youth, separated by gender. During the workshop for girls, the 13 and 14-year-olds were told to ask one another for a lesbian kiss. They were also taught words such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer.” Parent Mandy Coon told reporters that her daughter was very uncomfortable with the exercise. “She told me, ‘Mom, we all get teased and picked on enough; now I’m going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her,’” she lamented.

Coon stated that she was especially irate over the matter because parents were given no warning about the presentations, nor an opportunity to opt out. She is also dismayed that college students were granted the right to come into the classroom and encourage her daughter to be sexually active. “I am furious,” she declared. “I am her parent. Where does anyone get the right to tell her that it’s okay for her to have sex?” “The school is overstepping its bounds in not notifying parents first and giving us the choice,” another parent remarked. “I thought it was very inappropriate. That kind of instruction is best left up to the parents.”

According to reports, during the workshop for the adolescent boys, the students were counseled to keep a condom in their pocket at all times, and were taught how to identify a woman who is a “****.” “I was absolutely furious – really furious,” an anonymous parent told reporter Todd Starnes. “These are just kids. I’m dumbfounded that they found this class was appropriate.” However, both the school principal and the district superintendent are defending the workshops, and are advising that they will schedule more. Superintendent Paul Finch told the Poughkeepsie Journal that the presentation was “focused on improving culture, relationships, communication and self-perceptions.” “[We] may require more notification to parents” in the future, he said, contending that the sessions are required under the state Dignity for All Students Act, which prohibits harassment and bullying in the classroom.

He advised that Principal Katie Zahedi and guidance counselors at the school worked with the Bard students to plan the workshops. Zahedi asserts that the sessions were rather about saying no to unwanted advances as opposed to encouraging homosexual acts. “In planning the discussion, we made it clear that absolutely no discussion of any sexual acts is appropriate to middle school, and they used the examples of a kiss,” she wrote in an online forum for parents. “It was a separate activity for boys and girls and ultimately about respect and safety.” Mark Primoff, a spokesman for Bard College said that students had volunteered to give the presentation after Zehedi invited the institution of higher learning to participate in the workshops. However, parents remain livid over the matter. A public meeting was held this week for residents to express their concerns. It is not known whether girls actually had to kiss one another, or if the exercise stopped at the request.

That's exactly how they are doing though, with no notice to parents because they don't care what the parents say. They have an agenda and they are bound and determined to carry it out. This is just more proof.

I suspect they used college students in order to distance themselves, so they could blame the college or somehow claim it's the college students own interpretation of the "exercise". And I have little doubt every one of those college students were gay.

No, it was outright conditioning, under a false pretense [that being gay is okay and normal].

Those creatures know exactly what they are up to. I wonder out of the staff involved, how many of them are gay. And what "expertise" did those college students bring to the "workshop"? They are college students, what credentials do they have to counsel anyone on anything?

Pure conditioning by certain gay officials with an agenda.

ESPN APOLOGIZES FOR COMMENTATOR'S CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW ON HOMOSEXUALITY

While the left lectures Americans about the historic breakthrough
made by NBA free agent Jason Collins in announcing his sexuality
and calls for well-deserved tolerance, they are on full-out attack
against ESPN commentator Chris Broussard for expressing his
Christian views. And now ESPN has been forced to apologize.

It all started when Broussard appeared on Outside the Lines to talk about Collins.
Appearing with ESPN senior writer LZ Granderson, who is openly gay, Broussard was
asked by the host, “How ready is the NBA and the locker rooms for having an openly gay
teammate?”

Broussard answered, “The climate in society is very set for this thing to happen …. A lot of
people feel like if you come out and say you don’t agree with homosexuality, you are
viewed as a bigot, you are viewed as intolerant. So I think the climate is right for somebody
to come out and say they are gay. I’ve been texting with players, GMs, coaches, agents
throughout the day … and it’s been overwhelmingly supportive of Jason, from former
teammates to guys who have played against him.” Broussard acknowledged that a few
players said they might be uncomfortable with a gay player in the showers, but that “I
don’t think you’ll see somebody come out and be against this, whether because of their
true feelings or because of political correctness.”

Later in the conversation, Granderson said, “If we really want to move toward progress
and toward full acceptance, we have to have this conversation and this process. Broussard
then seconded that motion, and gave an example of that conversation and how it could be
productive:

I’d like to second what LZ said. “I’m a Christian. I don’t agree with homosexuality. I
think it’s a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is.
[ESPN's] L.Z. [Granderson] knows that. He and I have played on basketball teams
together for several years. We’ve gone out, had lunch together, we’ve had good
conversations, good laughs together. He knows where I stand and I know where he
stands. I don’t criticize him, he doesn’t criticize me, and call me a bigot, call me
ignorant, call me intolerant.

In talking to some people around the league, there’s a lot Christians in the NBA and
just because they disagree with that lifestyle, they don’t want to be called bigoted
and intolerant and things like that. That’s what LZ was getting at. Just like I may
tolerate someone whose lifestyle I disagree with, he can tolerate my beliefs. He
disagrees with my beliefs and my lifestyle but true tolerance and acceptance is being
able to handle that as mature adults and not criticize each other and call each other
names…

Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals, if you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, adultery, fornication, premarital sex between heterosexuals, whatever it may be, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I do not think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian.

This has been the traditional Biblical view for thousands of years. Still, traditionally religious people in the United States, like Broussard, have reached an understanding and tolerance for those with whom they disagree. Mutual tolerance between the traditionally religious and proponents of the morality of homosexuality is what the conversation between Granderson and Broussard was all about. As Granderson said, “Chris and I have had those uncomfortable conversations, the NBA now needs to have those uncomfortable conversations.” Tolerance is the goal. And tolerance requires tolerance on both sides.

But instead of having those uncomfortable conversations, and coming to mutual respect for one another’s positions, the left went after Broussard hammer and tongs. The hashtag #firechrisbroussard quickly skyrocketed on Twitter. The same left that praised Bob Costas to the skies for randomly sounding off on Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and gun control now decided that Broussard was way out of line. The LA Times ran an online poll asking, “Should Broussard have said what he said on TV?”

Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo! Sports wrote, “The last thing [gay youths] need is to see someone like Chris Broussard, who ESPN (and by extension, the NBA) trusts as both its voice both at games and in-studio, to be referring to them as sinners who are in ‘open rebellion to God.’” Deadspin’s John Koblin said that it was “unclear why [Broussard’s opinion was] necessary or even relevant at this hour.” Variety subtly suggested, “In December, ESPN suspended commentator Rob Parker for questionable comments on the race of NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III, then chose not to renew his contract after it expired at year’s end.”

In response to all this leftist tolerance, ESPN dutifully released a statement apologizing for Broussard’s comments: “We regret that a respectful discussion of personal viewpoints became a distraction from today’s news. ESPN is fully committed to diversity and welcomes Jason Collins’ announcement.” Naturally, Buzzfeed’s Kate Arthur ripped ESPN anyway for not sufficiently falling into line: “So no apology from Broussard …. ESPN got itself into this ridiculous, impossible situation here by relying on one of its employee's religious beliefs to inform a discussion about the huge Collins news …. What I would like to know, therefore, is why they put Broussard on the air to discuss his personal feelings about Collins, homosexuality, and Christianity, rather than his area of professional expertise — basketball — in the first place.” Arthur went on a rampage, calling Broussard “punitive, unforgiving,” and lamenting that “Collins’ beautiful announcement” had been tarnished by ESPN’s “outdated, homophobic pit of its own making.”

Broussard’s opinion was verboten according to the left. Granderson’s was not. The right was happy to air both opinions. Yet the left thinks that Broussard was way out of bounds. That’s because the goal of the left in overplaying the Jason Collins coming out party – a presidential call? Really? – is to portray those who disagree on homosexuality as bigots and homophobes who want to deny people like Collins happiness. Broussard never even remotely suggested that Collins should not have come out. He repeatedly stated that the time was ripe for Collins to come out. Virtually everyone on the right agrees with that general perspective. But Broussard violated the most taboo of all standards: he suggested that he had a different moral view than that of the left. And so now his job may be in jeopardy.
When it comes to tyranny and tolerance, the case of Chris Broussard is far more telling
than that of Jason Collins. It is the left that wants tyranny of expression. Tolerance only
extends to those deemed worthy by the left.

Yeah, and when the NFL's Miami Dolphins's Mike Wallace tweeted a criticism against Jason Collins for coming out, not only did he get attacked, but the Miami Dolphins had to do "damage control" by sending out an apology for his comments.

Wait, what? Did I just read that? Let me get this straight. This person is berating ESPN for the moral views of a commentator on a completely non-sport topic; sexual preferences of a person. It's not even remotely related to basketball, yet all these people are talking about being gay, and this clown badmouths ESPN not talking basketball, and really for doing the EXACT same thing the supporters of Collins are doing? Really?  ::)

Their hypocrisy is astounding.

Yeah, that part of the article bewildered me too - Broussard is one of their regular NBA commentators, and was only giving his thoughts when the discussion was about Collins's coming out.

Not an avid ESPN watcher(other than basketball and Monday Night Football), but I believe ESPN has been going on for weeks now discussing imminent professional athletes coming out.

Neither am I. ESPN has a history of not being dedicated to what they broadcast. THey, and FOX, broadcast NASCAR, but ESPN only shows the minimum, while FOX makes a broadcast of it, with extended interviews after the race, some discussions, etc. Oh no, ESPN, on the other hand, no sooner that they get a brief interview with the winning driver, they cut the broadcast to some other show, like lawn bowling or something.  ::)

Department of Justice Forcing Federal Employees to Publicly Affirm Homosexuality

The Obama administration is apparently requiring federal workers to not only tolerate homosexuality, but to "publicly embrace and affirm" it, according to the religious liberty law firm Liberty Counsel, Charisma News reports. Last week, a whistleblower from the Department of Justice sent Liberty Counsel a copy of a brochure sent to all DOJ employees entitled "LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers."
http://www.lc.org/media/9980/images/pr_doj_lgbt_directive_052113.pdf

The directive requires employees to vocally affirm homosexuality: "DON'T judge or remain silent. Silence will be interpreted as disapproval."

The DOJ also instructs managers to "use inclusive words like 'partner,' 'significant other' or 'spouse' rather than gender-specific terms like 'husband' and 'wife'" and to "use a transgender person's chosen name and the pronoun that is consistent with the person's self-identified gender." According to Liberty Counsel, "No longer can Christians quietly dissent or remain neutral to same-sex relationships. Now the DOJ is requiring federal employees to affirm sexual behaviors that every major religion throughout history has deemed immoral."

It seems like when there's conflicts like this that come up, the late Jerry Falwell's Liberty organization is almost always representing the opposite side of the fence.

According to Liberty Counsel, "No longer can Christians quietly dissent or remain neutral to same-sex relationships. Now the DOJ is requiring federal employees to affirm sexual behaviors that every major religion throughout history has deemed immoral."

No longer? Really? The DOJ can take a jump for all I care. Fake Christians can compromise what they claim to believe if they insist on slaving in the world for Caesar, but the truth is that God is trying to show those people what a wicked world they live and work in, by their own choice I might add.

They think they are being backed into a corner now by the world? Just wait, they ain't seen nothing yet!

DOJ on ‘Gays’: ‘Silence Will be Interpreted as Disapproval’

Under President Obama, "justice" is anything but blind. Neither is it deaf. In fact, based on recent revelations, it appears to be watching your every move and listening to your every word. Still, if you happen to be a federal employee, now it's even listening for your silence.

The only thing this Obama White House seems to generate is scandal. Well, here's yet another to add to the growing list. In addition to the Benghazi cover-up, IRS targeting of political dissenters and the illegal seizure of media phone records, whistleblowers within DOJ have contacted Liberty Counsel to express grave concerns over this administration's latest attack on freedom.

Our sources have provided Liberty Counsel an internal DOJ document titled: "LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers." It was emailed to DOJ managers in advance of the left's so-called "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month."

The document is chilling. It's riddled with directives that grossly violate - prima facie -employees' First Amendment liberties.

Following are excerpts from the "DOJ Pride" decree. When it comes to "LGBT" employees, managers are instructed:

"DON'T judge or remain silent. Silence will be interpreted as disapproval." (Italics mine)
That's a threat.

And not even a subtle one.

Got it? For Christians and other morals-minded federal employees, it's no longer enough to just shut up and "stay in the closet" - to live your life in silent recognition of biblical principles (which, by itself, is unlawful constraint). When it comes to mandatory celebration of homosexual and cross-dressing behaviors, "silence will be interpreted as disapproval."

This lawless administration is now bullying federal employees - against their will - to affirm sexual behaviors that every major world religion, thousands of years of history and uncompromising human biology reject.

Somewhere, right now, George Orwell is smiling.

The directive includes a quote from a "gay" federal employee to rationalize justification: "Ideally, I'd love to hear and see support from supervisors, so it's clear that there aren't just policies on paper. Silence seems like disapproval. There's still an atmosphere of LGBT issues not being appropriate for the workplace (particularly for transgender people), or that people who bring it up are trying to rock the boat."

Of course there's "still an atmosphere of LGBT issues not being appropriate for the workplace." When well over half of federal employees, half the country and most of the world still acknowledge objective sexual morality (and immorality), "the workplace," especially the federal workplace, should, at the very least, remain neutral on these highly controversial and behavior-centric issues.

Still, to borrow from self-styled "queer activist," anti-Christian bigot and Obama buddy Dan Savage, "it gets better":

"DO assume that LGBT employees and their allies are listening to what you're saying (whether in a meeting or around the proverbial water cooler) and will read what you're writing (whether in a casual email or in a formal document), and make sure the language you use is inclusive and respectful."
Is this the DOJ or the KGB? "[A]ssume that LGBT employees are listening …"? And what are "LGBT allies"? If you disagree with the homosexual activist political agenda, does that make you the enemy?

Yes, in any workplace, language should remain professional, but who defines what's "inclusive"? Who decides what's "respectful"? If asked about "LGBT issues," for instance, can a Christian employee answer honestly: "I believe the Bible. I believe that God designed sex to be shared between husband and wife within the bonds of marriage"? Or is that grounds for termination?

Here are some more DOs:

DO "Attend LGBT events sponsored by DOJ Pride and/or the Department, and invite (but don't require) others to join you."
DO "Display a symbol in your office (DOJ Pride sticker, copy of this brochure, etc.) indicating that it is a 'safe space.'"
Are you kidding? Does this administration really think it's legal to induce managers to "attend LGBT events," or to "display pride stickers" against their will? That's compulsory expression. That's viewpoint discrimination.

That's unconstitutional.

But there's more:

"DO use inclusive words like 'partner,' 'significant other' or 'spouse' rather than gender-specific terms like 'husband' and 'wife' (for example, in invitations to office parties or when asking a new employee about his/her home life)."
Oh, brother.

Sorry. Oh, gender-neutral sibling.

"DO use a transgender person's chosen name and the pronoun that is consistent with the person's self-identified gender."
In other words, lie. Engage in corporate delusion.

"DO deal with offensive jokes and comments forcefully and swiftly when presented with evidence that they have occurred in the workplace."
"DO communicate a zero-tolerance policy for inappropriate jokes and comments, including those pertaining to a person's sexual orientation and gender identity or expression."
Who gets to decide what's an "inappropriate joke [or] comment"? I thought we had a Constitution for that. It sure ain't Big Brother Barack. Sure, I get it, it's probably better not to start your work day with: "A lesbian, a tranny and two gays walk into a bath house …" but still, "no law … abridging the freedom of speech," means no law. No matter how much Obama wishes it so, we don't leave our constitutional rights at the federal workplace door.

The DOJ edict even addresses cross-dressing man woes:

"As a transgender woman [that's a man in a skirt], I want people to understand that I'm real. I want to be recognized as the gender I really am [again, you're a man in a skirt]. Yes, there was awkwardness with pronouns at first for folks who knew me before the transition. But it hurts when several years later people still use the wrong pronouns. And just imagine if people were constantly debating YOUR bathroom privileges. Imagine how humiliating that would be."

Tell you what, buddy: I won't "debate YOUR bathroom privileges" if you return to this planet. You'd better stay the heck out of the ladies room while my wife or two daughters are in there; otherwise, we have a problem. Women have an absolute right not be sexually harassed in the workplace - a right to privacy when using the facilities. To constantly worry whether a gender-confused, cross-dressing man is going to invade her privacy creates a hostile work environment.

This "DOJ Pride" directive is but the latest example of the "progressive" climate of fear and intimidation this radical Obama regime has created for Christians, conservatives and other values-oriented folks, both within and without the workplace.

I'm just glad the wheels are finally coming off.

Uh, this author needs to learn a touch more about the Constitution. What he describes would not be a 1st Amendment issue, as it involves the workplace in government.

What it does involve is the 5th Amendment, the "Right to Remain Silent". which is a person's right to not exercise their right under the 1st Amendment, with respect to self-incrimination. Just ask IRS officials about how that works!

Transgender bully cause of legal complaint

A California legal group says officials are placing students at risk by allowing students to choose their own sexuality.

Murrieta-based Advocates for Faith & Freedom is defending clients against a trend that California public schools may soon adopt.

One such client is a high school sophomore girl who recently transferred to a charter school in Los Angeles. She felt uncomfortable because she shared a locker area with a male student who identifies himself as a female.

Bob Tyler, general counsel with Advocates, says their client claims the male student would often watch her change, comment on her appearance and touch her hair.

"There's a disturbing trend in California to recognize the identity claimed by students for their gender -- not what they were born with, not what their [biological] makeup can establish, but what they claim themselves to feel like," Tyler reports. "As a result, California public schools are putting so many kids at risk, particularly young women being forced to share locker rooms with young men."

Since the girl felt uncomfortable, she began sharing lockers with another female student. That is when the client started to be bullied by the male student and his friend, who would reportedly harass her verbally and even physically intimidate her.

The California Legislature is currently considering a bill that would allow students to join sex-segregated facilities and sports teams of the sex they choose.

Gay Human Rights Commissioner to Evangelical pastor: you and your family ‘deserve to burn in hell’

An Evangelical pastor in Sioux City is requesting the removal of a newly-appointed member of the city’s Human Rights Commission because of hateful and threatening comments the official posted to the pastor’s Facebook page in 2010.
 
Pastor Cary Gordon of Cornerstone World Outreach says that Human Rights Commissioner Scott Raasch, who is homosexual, wrote on Facebook that because Gordon had encouraged voters to toss out three Supreme Court judges whose court order made same-sex “marriage” legal in Iowa, he was a “hater” and a “bigot” and that he should “burn in hell” along with his entire family.
 
“I advocated for the removal of our state supreme court judges in 2010, because they violated their oaths of office while pretending to be lawmakers, forcing gay ‘marriage’ on our state,” Gordon recounted in a blog post.  “Thankfully, a significant majority of Iowa citizens agreed with my advocacy for the rule of law and the restricted jurisdiction of judges and responded by firing the 3 who were up for the Iowa retention vote.”
 
But Gordon said that while most Iowa voters agreed with Gordon’s stance, “I and my church were continually threatened by parties who disagreed.”

According to Gordon, one such party was Scott Raasch.
 
“You are haters and bigots and you will get what’s coming to you sooner or later,” Raasch wrote on Gordon’s Facebook page. “I hope you rot in hell.”

Gordon said he answered him with "as much decorum as [he] could muster": “I hope you repent of your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. I wouldn’t want you or anyone else to go to hell.”
 
But Raasch wrote back, “I know Christ and don’t need a snake oil salesman like you to tell me about him. I guess that’s the difference between us because I think there are many people that deserve to burn in hell … including you and your entire family. The sooner the better for our community!”
 
Said Gordon, “Scott Raasch … gives blatant death wishes to anyone who disagrees with his political or sexual views. He is obviously unstable and filled with raging hatred.”  He said that Raasch’s remarks caused his family to fear for their lives.
 
“I'm sure you can appreciate that remarks like ‘...you will get what's coming to you sooner or later. I hope you rot in hell...’ in conjunction with death wishes for my wife and children, at Christmas, could be considered an imminent threat to do violence,” said Gordon.
 
He called for Raasch’s immediate removal from the Human Rights Commission.
 
Raasch admits to posting the comments, and says he was angry when he did it.
 
“I would like to say that if I caused him or his family any stress, I do apologize for that, as that was not my intention,” Raasch told the Sioux City Journal.  “I feel badly about this,” he added. "I don’t want to get off to a bad start. I think I can do a good job on this commission.”
 
But Gordon disagrees.  “Let me be very clear,” Gordon wrote, “[a] man who gives ‘death wishes’ to a local pastor's wife and children at Christmas guarantees an atmosphere where prosecutorial powers of the HRC are likely to become abusive and threatening to people of faith in Sioux City.”
 
Added Gordon, “Let's hope our City Council will do the right thing and remove Scott Raasch from this unmerited position of authority posthaste.”

Betty's husband is D!ck, FYI.

Wedding Venue Gets Threats, Fears Shut Down After Refusing Gay Couple’s Nuptials
8/9/13

Another business is facing retribution for declining service to a same-sex couple. Betty and Dick Odgaard, owners of Görtz Haus Gallery in Grimes, Iowa, are catching the ire of gay rights advocates after they declined offering their venue to Lee Stafford and his fiance Jared.

Now the owners, who are Christians, are receiving vicious and threatening emails and phone calls -- and they fear that their business could shut down because of the fierce reaction.

It was less than one week ago that the Lee and Jared entered Görtz Haus looking for additional information about holding their wedding there. After Dick realized that it would be a gay ceremony, he told the couple that they would not be able to hold their nuptials at the establishment -- and that's when the controversy erupted.

"It started with emails and we noticed the emails were from a person with a name that looked like a man's name. We're a little suspicious about it and ... two fellows walked in and that's where it all began," Dick told TheBlaze on Friday. "It was obvious what the situation was. I had to confirm it. I asked if this was a gay marriage celebration and I said we can't take your money for this."

From there, news spread that the Odgaards turned the couple away. Before long, phone calls and emails came streaming in. Betty said that some people have promised that the furor won't stop until the business, which is a bistro, flower shop and a wedding destination, shuts down. Detractors have called Betty and Dick "haters."

"I wish all people well. I have love for all people," Betty, who was visibly distraught on the phone, told TheBlaze.

The family shared some of the e-mail responses they've received with TheBlaze. And the contents weren't pretty.

One angry e-mail said that the family is "finished" and "doomed." "You are mean, rude, selfish, mother ****** racist sons of ******* from hell," it read, with the writer later adding, "**** you, **** your God, **** your religion." Another person who goes by the name "Micky" wrote, "Betty, you're very old and almost dead.  How do you both feel, knowing that America, and the world, will be a better place without you?"

Further, someone claiming to be with the Westboro Baptist Church, a virulent anti-gay group, wrote to the owners claiming that members would soon be in the area to support the business. In sum, Betty and Dick report getting between 50 and 60 emails and about 20 to 30 phone calls per day about the incident, although a majority of these are actually positive. But while verbal support has been great, there hasn't been an influx of people coming in, the couple said.

On the legal side of things, Lee and Jared, who believe they were unfairly discriminated against, have apparently filed a complaint with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission. Betty and Dick have consulted with their lawyer, who believes that they are within their religious rights to decline the wedding. On the flip side, Lee and Jared claim that the law is on their side.

Iowa law does prohibit service refusals based on sexual orientation, but religious sentiment often makes these scenarios more complicated.

The business has already experienced the impact of its decision. Betty said that two weddings are canceled for next summer and that some people want their down payments back. Additionally, an artist has pulled out from working with Görtz Haus Gallery.

"We will lose considerable money ... it will impact us though, no doubt," she told TheBlaze.

As far as their reasoning for the refusal, the couple is candid and wants to ensure that people understand their views on the matter -- reasoning that they feel has not been adequately conveyed through media coverage. Betty called it "totally a faith-based issue" that is rooted in the family's Christian religious convictions.

"We believe a marriage is between a man and woman," she said, with Dick adding, "To us, it's a sacrament."

"How do you both feel, knowing that America, and the world, will be a better place without you?"

And Christians won't be around here when this short-lived "New World Order" gets unleashed - Nice knowing you!

Rev 5:1  And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
Rev 5:2  And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Rev 5:3  And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
Rev 5:4  And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
Rev 5:5  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Rev 5:6  And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Rev 5:7  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne
.
Rev 5:8  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
Rev 5:9  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Rev 5:10  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

To me, this whole situation with the reprobates is an act of reverse discrimination by the world. They insist people not discriminate, yet look how people are treated that refuse service at their businesses, and how their religious beliefs are basically trampled on.

The world is saying they could care less what a person believes, so long as they do what the sodomites want. If you look into the wording of the UN charters on human rights, they basically promote the same thing; believe what you want, but do what we tell you.

No question, as I've said before, the gay lobby is intentionally taking on these known Christian businesses, not with the intent to force them to do marriages, but to get them in court so they can add to the rulings on gay marriage by suing people for discrimination. They know full well there are plenty of businesses that oppose gays, so it seems their logic is to go after those businesses directly.

Like I said, if there were no other places to marry, they'd have a case. But I say, that a business retains the right to refuse service, especially when there are other places to hold a wedding. Yet the courts are still ruling in favor of the sodomites. And notice out of all the articles about this, have you seen ONE mention of the fact those people can go elsewhere to other places to hold a wedding? It's never mentioned.

I think we know exactly why that is contrary to all logic.

DC Mayor Disinvites Famed Gospel Singer From Civil Rights Concert Over Stance on Homosexuality

The mayor of Washington, D.C. disinvited a famed Gospel singer last week from headlining a civil rights concert in the nation’s capital, according to reports.

Multiple Grammy and Stellar Award winner Donnie McClurkin, who says that he turned to homosexuality for a time after being sexually abused by men as a child, posted a video statement on SocialCam on Saturday stating that he was “asked not to attend” the event that day. “Reflections on Peace: From Gandhi to King” was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movement in America.

“Last night, on the way to the airport, I received a telephone call from the promoters who had received word from the mayor’s office, as well as the Arts Commission, that I was not welcome and uninvited,” he said. “They waited until the last moment to demand that I be taken off of the concert.”

McClurkin stated that there were only 15-20 people who protested his presence at the event, compared to the thousands who were expected to attend.

“It’s discrimination; it’s bullying; it’s intolerance,” McClurkin continued. “It’s depriving someone of their civil rights when they’re told that they cannot come to an event, and by coming it would cause a disruption.”

However, a spokesperson for Mayor Vincent Gray’s office said that they rather asked McClurkin to withdraw, with the agreement of his management agency.

“The Arts and Humanities Commission and Donnie McClurkin’s management decided that it would be best for him to withdraw because the purpose of the event is to bring people together,” spokesman Doxie McCoy told the Washington Post. “Mayor Gray said the purpose of the event is to promote peace and harmony. That is what King was all about."

McClurkin, who has performed in support of Barack Obama’s election efforts, has stated in times past that he has been “villified” for sharing with the world that “God delivered me from homosexuality.”

“They accuse me of being anti-gay and a bigot,” he stated during a concert in 2007, according to CNN. “We don’t believe in discrimination. We don’t believe in hatred, and if you do you are in the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s the whole premise of God. That’s the whole premise of Christ is love, love, love. But there is a side of Christ that deals in judgment, and all sin is against God.”

“Don’t call me a bigot or anti-gay when I have been touched by the same feelings,” McClurkin continued. “I have suffered with the same feelings. Don’t call me a homophobe when I love everybody. … Don’t tell me that I stand up and I say vile words against the gay community because I don’t. I don’t speak against the homosexual. I tell you that God delivered me from homosexuality.”

According to reports, a number of pastors from the area asked Mayor Gray to keep McClurkin on the roster, but Gray agreed with the homosexual activists in the community who stated that his appearance could be a problem.

“I take no joy that he is not performing,” activist Phil Pannell told the Washington Post. “I really admire Donnie McClurkin’s artistry, but this is a situation where a political polemic obscured his artistry.”

McClurking says that it is ironic that he was disinvited from a civil rights concert.

“These are bully tactics simply because of a stance that I took,” he stated. “This is a civil rights infringement situation. Imagine that, in the 21st century–2013–I, a black man, am asked not to attend because of politics.”

McClurkin has a teenage son that he fathered out of wedlock in 2000. He serves as pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, New York near New York City.

National Organization for Marriage Under Investigation After Homosexual Activist Files Complaint

The Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board voted unanimously last week to investigate the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) for not disclosing the names of donors surrounding its efforts to oust state Supreme Court justices.

The matter surrounds campaigns conducted during the 2010 election, where the organization worked successfully to unseat three justices, including the chief justice, after the court upheld same-sex marriage in the state.

Fred Karger, a homosexual activist and Republican from California who ran for president in 2012, filed a complaint against the organization in Iowa this June. He has done so in the past in Maine and California, but officials were unable to find any legal violations in those states.

“We caught them, and I’m so grateful for the [Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board] for moving forward on this investigation because we’ll find out where this money’s coming from,” Karger told reporters following the vote to proceed with the investigation. “They’ll say and do anything to raise money.”

However, NOM said that Karger’s actions amount to a “witch hunt” and that he has become “serial” in filing frivolous complaints.

“The National Organization for Marriage has violated no campaign finance rules in Iowa, and we decry the decision by the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board to open an investigation,” Brian Brown, President of NOM, said in a statement. “This inquiry is a witch hunt spawned by a delusional homosexual activist who fancies himself becoming the president of the United States and who is a serial filer of frivolous allegations against us whenever we stand up for traditional marriage. The complaint is another attempt to shut down criticism of activist judges and politicians who wish to redefine marriage.”

At issue is whether or not groups are required to make public the names of those who donate during campaign efforts. Karger asserts that it is required by law, and NOM contends otherwise. The organization states that homosexual activists have been wanting to obtain their donor list “in order to harass NOM’s supporters.” It pointed to a website that is already being used to decry the pro-family group’s efforts.

Brown states, however, that what is most unsettling is that way that the organization is being portrayed in light of the investigation.

“We are concerned about media reports quoting officials with the Ethics Board speculating about the allegations against us,” said Brown. “This is reminiscent of the IRS scandal where the government illegally leaked confidential information to our political opponents. We will vigorously contest any suggestion that NOM has violated the law, and we will aggressively demand that our civil rights, including a presumption of innocence, be honored by Iowa government officials.”

The Act Right Legal Foundation is now representing the organization before the board.

“[Karger thinks organizations] must always and everywhere disclose all of its activities and donors. This is not the law in any state or of the United States,” it said in a recent statement.

Karger has also filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission.

And 501c4s don't have to disclose their donors publicly, so he doesn't have a case.

With that being said, the NOM is yet another controlled-opposition group - read about them a month ago. Yes, it was all and good that they campaigned to unseat those Iowa SSC justices for voting to legalize gay marriage, but nonetheless they stayed silent over Vaughn Walker, Anthony Kennedy, John Roberts, and Antonin Scalia. Walker was the judge in CA that voted to strike down Prop 8 in the lower federal courts in 2010(despite the fact that he should have excused himself from the case b/c he's an open homosexual with a gay partner), and Kennedy/Roberts/Scalia all voted to strike down DOMA/Prop 8 recently.

Beware of the enemies from within!

Dartmouth nixes hire of African bishop on past gay rights stance

BOSTON (Reuters) - Dartmouth College has rescinded the appointment of Bishop James Tengatenga of Malawi as dean of a foundation at the Ivy League school in New Hampshire over his past comments about homosexuality.

Reached by e-mail on Thursday, Tengatenga said he was "disappointed" by the decision.

Dartmouth President Philip Hanlon said the school revoked the appointment because "the controversy (Tengatenga's comments) created have compromised his ability to serve effectively."

Tengatenga had been named as dean of the school's William Jewett Tucker Foundation, which seeks to educate Dartmouth students "for lives of purpose and ethical leadership, rooted in service, spirituality and social justice," according to the college's website.

The appointment drew criticism after it was announced last month because of Tengatenga's leadership of an Anglican church in Africa that opposed gay rights. He served as diocesan bishop of Southern Malawi and chair of the Worldwide Anglican Communion's Anglican Consultative Council, a network of 44 churches.

"The issue is that he has championed the church's official position against homosexuality," Dartmouth junior Andrew Longhi wrote in a blog post on The Huffington Post website. "The tendency to discriminate against (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people is so diametrically opposed to how I understand faith and religion that selecting a 'social conservative' to this post baffles me."

Tengatenga said in a statement following the appointment, but before his hiring was blocked, that his views on homosexuality had changed.

"Let me state unequivocally and categorically that I consider all people equal regardless of their sexual orientation," he wrote. "As is the case with many people, my ideas about homosexuality have evolved over time
."

On Thursday, he reacted to Dartmouth's decision.

"I am disappointed," he said by e-mail. "It's a sad for the liberalism they claim. It is what it is. Life goes on."

He noted changing attitudes toward gay rights, particularly in the United States after the consecration of Gene Robinson as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop of New Hampshire in 2003.

Hanlon, the Dartmouth president, said the move came after much reflection and consultation with senior leaders at the college and "in light of concerns - specifically surrounding gay rights - expressed by members of our community."

The college's support of gay rights, he said, was "complete and unwavering."

Has this "conservative" Town Hall site called out Pope Francis yet for his pro-gay comments recently? Come to think of it, can't think of any of these "conservative" news sites that have done so. Even these "conservative" groups and media outlets are playing their part in this Hegelian Dialectic/war of words, as they're controlled opposition as well.

Anyhow - we'll see how everything plays out in the near future - don't be surprised to see most of these 501c3 church buildings cave in, especially when the economy continues to freefall, and they end up getting desperate(ie-501c3 churches get tax benefits for performing weddings). And SBC churches have pretty much gone Emergent to boot.

Legal group warns 'co-existence' not goal of homosexual activists


A legal group is calling attempts to ban counseling for minors struggling with same-sex attractions shows the goal of gay activists for “complete dominance."

With the recent passage of laws that ban gay-to-straight therapy for minors in New Jersey and California, Liberty Counsel is warning those who cherish freedom must understand the motive behind homosexual activism.
 
Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel says the ban on gay-conversion therapy is a threat to the freedoms of both children and parents who have a right to obtain this kind of therapy.
 
"It has nothing to do with real people who are actually benefiting, have benefited from this counseling. This is just a politically motivated agenda,” Staver tells OneNewsNow.
 
He goes onto call the issue a “zero-sum game” in which homosexual rights “trump everything else,” including religious freedom and the First Amendment.
 
“It distorts every other freedom,” he says.
 
Liberty Counsel called the bill an "intrustion into the counselor-client relationship and into the rights of parents."
 
The coalition of homosexual activists is a “threat to our freedom,” Staver claims.
 
“The agenda is ultimately not tolerance, not co-existance, but absolute dominance, and not only dominance, but forcing people to affirm homosexuality as normal,” he says.
 
The California Supreme Court recently upheld the state's ban on gay-conversion therapy. Liberty Counsel plans to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene.

Not only the pro-gay lobby, but pretty much all of these NWO front groups will push "co-existence" to achieve just that...DOMINANCE.

The Emergent Church is another big example - Rick Warren and Bill Hybels push "co-existence" and "church unity" toward their flock so that they can get CONTROL(ie-both have 1000s of member churches around the world that have agreed to yoke up with them, hence making both of these guys Bishops/Popes).

Christian Wedding Venue Turns Tables on Gay Agenda, Files Lawsuit

The owners of an art gallery in Iowa filed a lawsuit against the state’s Civil Rights Commission after being threatened with punitive action for declining a request to plan, facilitate and host a same-sex wedding ceremony.

Betty and Richard Odgaard, a Mennonite couple, own and operate the Görtz Haus Gallery, a 77-year-old building that used to be a church. They filed the suit in Polk County District Court Monday.

“The Odgaards welcome all customers into the Gallery, regardless of their race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion or disability,” the suit states. “The Odgaards cannot, however, host activities or display art that would violate their religious beliefs.”

Betty Odgaard was born and raised a Mennonite. When she and her husband founded the Görtz Haus Gallery (Görtz is Betty’s maiden name), they made sure to keep the old church elements, such as the stained glass windows depicting Biblical images.

With its religious decorations and architectural elements, the gallery has served as a place to express the Odgaards’ faith for over a decade. One of their favorite ways to do that is hosting wedding ceremonies in the old church’s sanctuary. They personally help plan and host every wedding, and are both at the gallery from morning until night for each wedding ceremony.

Lee Stafford told KCCI 8 News in August that he and his fiance, Jared, had toured the Görtz Haus before their planned nuptials. Once the Odgaards realized the event was a same-sex wedding, they declined the couple’s business, saying it was against their beliefs.

“We hire and serve gays and lesbians, and have close friends who are gays and lesbians,” explains Betty Odgaard.  “And we respect that good people disagree with our religious conviction against hosting a ceremony that violates our faith. We simply ask that the government not force us to abandon our faith or punish us for it.”

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is representing the Odgaards. Emily Hardman, the Becket Fund’s communications director, says the case involves “individual freedom.”

“Every Iowan should be concerned that bureaucrats are forcing Betty and Richard to personally host a religious ceremony against their religious convictions,” she says.

The Polk County District Court ruled in favor of six same-sex couples who were denied marriage licenses in 2007. A unanimous Iowa Supreme Court upheld the lower court’s decision in April 2009, making it the third U.S. state to legalize gay marriage.

You can ask all you want, but that is exactly what the world WILL try to do, simply because government's position is that religion is like an elective in school, you can take it, but it's not required. It's treated like it's a personal hobby that people do in their spare time, a social interaction thing. Government takes the stance personal hobbies are secondary to the government's demands, because of their ideology that government/authority knows what's best for a society who can't fend for themselves.

Homosexual movement has PR campaign for its last enemy: the church

A pro-family Christian activist says there's a movement under way to re-define Christianity to fit the lesbian, "gay," bisexual and transgender agenda.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality notes that groups such as Not All Like That, and Truth Wins Out, have campaigns to promote the "gay Christian" message.

Political groups such as the Human Rights Campaign and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force have been engaged in Christian advocacy for a long time.

"This alternative Christianity movement is started by some of the most hateful, secular-minded people, even atheists, who live on the planet,” says LaBarbera. “And yet they are going to redefine Christianity for us?"

Pro-homosexual activist Matthew Vines has a campaign against religious “homophobia” and argues the gay-Christian message in evangelical circles. LaBarbera says that campaign seeks to place an "evangelist" for the homosexual lobby in each state.

LaBarbera, Peter"There's lots of money being spent on this and lots of activism,” says LaBarbera, “and I'm afraid Christians just have no clue that all this is going on.”

On his website, LaBarbera highlights a Youtube video that describes a homosexual sex club near Atlanta that caters to HIV-positive men. The purpose in exposing the video, he says, is to show the depravity of the homosexual lifestyle.

LaBarbera warns that pastors need to "stand by and defend the truth of the Bible on the homosexual issue."

The pro-family activist tells OneNewsNow that the LGBT community knows Christians are the last bulwark - and because of that, it's pushing against Christianity with even greater intensity.

7 Lessons From Rose Parade's Gay Wedding Float

Editor's Note: Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) President Peter LaBarbera offers the following seven lessons from the first-ever homosexual wedding occurring on a float in the annual Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif, on New Year's Day.

1. The Homosexual 'Marriage' Movement Is Evil. Moral-minded Americans need to face the truth of what the homosexual "marriage" movement is: a social evil—anti-Christian to the core—that celebrates what the Bible calls an egregious sexual sin as a moral good.

Homosexual activists are desperate to "normalize" their aberrant lifestyle. Their movement has become the Left's vanguard in undermining and redefining civilized Judeo-Christian principles. The LGBT lobby has become what historian Paul Johnson calls a "Monster in our Midst," trampling over and appropriating society's wholesome traditions and institutions—even Christianity itself—to achieve its godless goals.

2. Platform to Corrupt Children. The homosexual "marriage" movement corrupts impressionable children by teaching them that wrong is right (see Isaiah 5:20) and that erotic "love" between two people of the same sex is "equal" to natural marital love as ordained by God. Jesus Christ had strong words for anyone who promotes sin and corrupts the souls of innocent children.

3. Even 'Conservative Aspects of LGBT Agenda Are Radical. The Rose Parade's live homosexual "wedding" again illustrates that even the supposedly "conservative" side of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) agenda is revolutionary and destructive—primarily because legalized, "domesticated" homosexualism provides a very public platform from which to redefine God's wonderful institutions of marriage and family.

"Gay" activists and their liberal allies co-opt noble institutions like the Rose Parade and use them to indoctrinate children in the Big Lies that homosexuality is just another kind of love and a mere "civil rights" issue. Similarly, schools across America are being used to promote immoral same-sex conduct as an "equality" issue.

4. Symbolic of America's Decline. The "gay wedding" float is symbolic of America's ongoing moral disintegration: In the name of "tolerance," "diversity" and "inclusion," we proudly parade our sin down our streets—defying our Creator and aggressively corrupting the minds and souls of future generations.

As historians have documented, sexual immorality, escalating fornication and the abandonment of fidelity in marriage bring about the collapse of civilizations; the United States will be no exception. No wonder developing nations like Jamaica don't want to emulate us.

5. Folly of Secular (Pro-'Gay') Conservatives. The homosexual "wedding" float clearly demonstrates the folly of secular "conservatives" (like atheist S.E. Cupp) and libertarians who argue that legalized homosexual "marriage" is a conservative proposition. Radically remolding God-given institutions to celebrate sin—and modeling such deviance and confusion as normal to impressionable children—is hardly "conservative." In fact, it is the essence of the Left's destructive Sexual Revolution. Republicans will seal their own demise if they foolishly embrace counterfeit "marriage" and other aspects of homosexualism, replacing their pro-family Platform.

6. Demonizing Christians as 'Haters' and 'Bigots.' As the Phil Robertson/Duck Dynasty controversy shows, homosexual groups like GLAAD regularly smear moral and religious critics with malicious slurs like "Bigots, Haters, and Homophobes." Opposing homosexualism (the ideology of proud homosexuality as a "civil right") in all its forms is not "hate." Rather, it is being faithfully obedient to our loving, holy Creator. True Christians should offer the hope of the life-changing gospel—not counterfeit "marriage"—to homosexuals. Jesus has helped many people like Michael Glatze abandon homosexual sin.

7. Faithful Christians Must Speak Out Now. The unbiblical "progressive evangelical" and liberal Catholic movement to affirm unrepentant homosexuals as "Christians" serves Satan's agenda, not God's. (Substitute another sexual sin for "gay" and see if it makes sense: Would the Rose Parade allow a live incestuous "union" atop one of its floats?)

Bible-believing Christians must speak out against the agenda to normalize homosexuality—especially since children are its target. If Christians will not resist the evil specter of homosexual "marriage," who will?

Yeah, when you think about it - while I'm a pro-2nd amendment person, at the same time, all of these people that are defending through and through gun rights(especially since Obama took office) are also the same ones who have all but been silent on this sodomy issue that is spreading across the country. Yeah, where are Alex Jones, Lindsey Williams, the PPF mods, etc exposing this agenda?

And it starts from the youth - that is where all of the major indoctrination is hitting them. Personally, it was in my Catholic HS in the 80's when they showed us a sodomy-themed movie(which starred "Happy Days" Scott Baio), and initially I remember there was tons of surprise reactions afterwards(I myself thought the movie was some hoax).

"seal their own demise if..."? It's been going on for quite a while now - the "log cabin republicans"(the GOP pro-gay lobby) has been around for a long time. But en yet nigh a word from any of these culture wars/religious right folks. Odd how Churchianity thought big victories were won in that 2004 election with all of those states they voted to ban gay marriage. But the elephant has been in their room for a long time.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A former San Francisco gay rights advocate who was arrested after police said they linked him to an email account that had sent and received images of toddlers engaging in sex acts with men has been convicted of possessing child pornography.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1mqlpec) that Larry Brinkin pleaded guilty to one felony count of distributing child pornography as part of a plea deal with prosecutors that calls for him to serve six months in jail and six months on home detention.

As part of the deal, the 67-year-old also will be required to register as a sex offender and will be barred from working with children or being in contact with minors without parental consent.

Brinkin spent more than two decades monitoring businesses for anti-gay discrimination while working for the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.

ACLU bankrolling gay nuptials in ‘My Big Gay Illegal Wedding’ contest
1/30/14

Brian Jensen and Jeromy Manke, a same-sex engaged couple in Nevada, are in the running to win a free trip to New York City, $5,000, and help from a wedding planner to fund their spring nuptials in California.

Who would bankroll their nuptials? An organization that spends far more time defending civil liberties in court than at wedding receptions.

The American Civil Liberties Union—worried that the public thinks the same-sex marriage battle is “over” after the Supreme Court’s twin decisions expanding gay rights last summer—is paying five same-sex couples who live in states that still outlaw the practice to get married.

Jensen and Manke are one of dozens of gay couples competing in the usually staid ACLU’s tongue-in-cheek online contest called “My Big Gay (Il)legal Wedding.” Same-sex couples that live in the 33 states that ban gay marriage submit their wedding ideas, photos, and love stories, competing against each other for votes to win cash for their weddings. Five of them will be declared the winners after the contest closes Feb. 16, just after Valentine’s Day.

“I’ve got the tickets to the hottest, chicest most fabulous thing this season: Gay weddings!” “Project Runway” star Tim Gunn says in a promotional video for the contest. Gunn, who the ACLU tapped as a spokesman for the contest, explains that many states still don’t recognize same-sex unions. "Ugh…these states need a makeover!,” he exclaims.

The lighthearted project is intended to highlight a serious issue: that 33 states still explicitly ban same-sex marriage, even though the federal government now recognizes the unions.

The ACLU is currently litigating same-sex marriage cases in Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Oregon and Utah, attempting to get the courts to agree with them that there is a fundamental right to marriage that states should not be allowed to infringe upon.

“I think a whole lot of people in the country have thought, ‘Oh well, the Supreme Court decided the gay marriage issue and it’s over,’” said James Esseks, the director of the ACLU’s LGBT Project. “But they haven’t.”

Sixteen states and the District of Columbia recognize same-sex unions. (A seventeenth state, Illinois, will begin to do so this June.) The Supreme Court ruled last June that the federal government must recognize same-sex marriages issued by these states, but declined to interfere in individual states’ power to ban the practice. That means there is still legal confusion about the status of a gay couple that gets married in New York and then moves to Pennsylvania, for example. They could still file their federal taxes jointly, but would not be able to do the same with their state taxes. Health insurance benefits and access to family courts would also be in question.

The Supreme Court decision “made a huge difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people,” Esseks said. “But there are still hundreds of thousands of same sex couples living in many states in the country who can’t get married at home or if they are married in another state, those marriages are not respected at home.”

Richard Socarides, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton on gay rights, said he thinks the campaign is a “clever” and necessary piece of public education during a time of confusion about the state of the gay marriage fight.

“A lot of people think because gay marriage has been in the news so much, it’s a done deal,” Socarides said. “But there are still a lot of places where Americans can’t get married.”

Jensen, 29, and Manke, 26, entered the contest last month in the hopes of getting $5,000 for the spring wedding they’ve planned near Lake Tahoe, Calif. Jensen, a hair stylist, and Manke, a human resources consultant, both live in Reno, Nev., where their marriage will not be recognized when they drive back over the border when the honeymoon is over.

“We really just wanted to not only take advantage of the opportunity to get married and have a cool contest to participate in, but also call attention to the fact that this is an issue,” Manke said.

The two have been engaged since June of 2012.

“It’s super fairy-tale cheesy I guess, but Brian proposed to me in Spain while we were staying in a castle,” Manke said. The couple wants their wedding day to be similarly romantic: They are asking their guests to wear white, black and gray so that the color of the trees stands out in their wedding photos. They also plan to cross over from Reno into California in a covered, horse-drawn wagon, a nod to the pioneers who sought a better life by heading west more than a century ago.

But Manke and Jensen aren’t going anywhere. “I was born and raised here,” Manke said. “Our lives are here. So why should we have to move?”

UN committee blasts Vatican on sex abuse, abortion

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican "systematically" adopted policies that allowed priests to **** and molest tens of thousands of children over decades, a U.N. human rights committee said Wednesday, urging the Holy See to open its files on pedophiles and bishops who concealed their crimes.

In a devastating report hailed by abuse victims, the U.N. committee severely criticized the Holy See for its attitudes toward homosexuality, contraception and abortion and said it should change its own canon law to ensure children's rights and their access to health care are guaranteed.

The Vatican promptly objected and its U.N. ambassador accused the committee of having betrayed the international body's own objectives by allowing itself to be swayed by pro-gay ideologues. He said it appeared the committee simply hadn't listened when the Holy See outlined all the measures it has taken to protect children.

The report, which took the Vatican by surprise in its harsh tone, puts renewed pressure on Pope Francis to move decisively on the abuse front and make good on pledges to create a Vatican commission to study sex abuse and recommend best practices to fight it. The commission was announced in December, but few details have been released since then.

The committee issued its recommendations after subjecting the Holy See to a daylong interrogation last month on its implementation of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, the key U.N. treaty on child protection, which the Holy See ratified in 1990.

Critically, the committee rejected the Vatican's longstanding argument that it doesn't control bishops or their abusive priests, saying the Holy See was responsible for implementing the treaty not just in the Vatican City State but around the world "as the supreme power of the Catholic Church through individuals and institutions placed under its authority."

In its report, the committee blasted the "code of silence" that has long been used to keep victims quiet, saying the Holy See had "systematically placed preservation of the reputation of the church and the alleged offender over the protection of child victims." It called on the Holy See to provide compensation to victims and hold accountable not just the abusers, but also those who covered up their crimes.

"The committee is gravely concerned that the Holy See has not acknowledged the extent of the crimes committed, has not taken the necessary measures to address cases of child sexual abuse and to protect children, and has adopted policies and practices which have led to the continuation of the abuse by, and the impunity of, the perpetrators," the report said.

It called for Francis' nascent abuse commission to conduct an independent investigation of all cases of priestly abuse and the way the Catholic hierarchy has responded over time, and urged the Holy See to establish clear rules for the mandatory reporting of abuse to police and to support laws that allow victims to report crimes even after the statute of limitations has expired.

No Catholic bishop has ever been sanctioned by the Vatican for sheltering an abusive priest, and only in 2010 did the Holy See direct bishops to report abusers to police where law enforcement requires it. Vatican officials have acknowledged that bishop accountability remains a major problem and have suggested that under Francis, things might begin to change.

The committee's recommendations are non-binding and there is no enforcement mechanism. Instead, the U.N. asked the Vatican to implement the recommendations and report back by 2017. The Vatican was 14 years late submitting its most recent report.

The committee is made up of independent experts, not other U.N. member states — the case on the larger and often politicized U.N. Human Rights Council, which also sits in Geneva. The Committee on the Rights of the Child is one of 10 U.N. bodies that monitor implementation of the core U.N. human rights treaties, and its 18 members include academics, sociologists and child development specialists from around the globe.

Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, who headed the Vatican delegation at the Jan. 16 session in Geneva, was clearly taken aback by the scathing tone of the report.

"It seems as if the document was prepared before the committee meeting, where the Vatican gave detailed responses on various points that weren't reported in this concluding document or seem to not have been taken into consideration," he told Vatican Radio.

While most attention has focused on child sex abuse, the committee's recommendations extended far beyond, into issues about discrimination against children and their rights to adequate health care, matters that touch on core church teaching about life and sexual morals.

The committee, for example, urged the Vatican to amend its canon law to identify circumstances where access to abortion can be permitted for children, such as to save the life of a young mother. It urged the Holy See to ensure that sex education, including access to information about contraception and preventing HIV, is mandatory in Catholic schools. It called for the Holy See to use its moral authority to condemn discrimination against homosexual children, or children raised by same-sex couples.

Church teaching holds that life begins at conception. The Vatican, which therefore opposes abortion and artificial contraception, calls for respect for gays, but considers homosexual acts to be "intrinsically disordered." The Vatican has a history of diplomatic confrontation with the United Nations over such issues.

Tomasi said the call to reconsider abortion ran against the U.N. treaty's own objectives to protect the life of children before and after birth, and he accused pro-gay rights and gay marriage advocacy groups of having "reinforced an ideological line" with the committee.

Benyam Mezmur, a committee member and Ethiopian academic on children's legal rights, rejected any such criticism and said the committee report was balanced and was aimed purely at ensuring the treaty was implemented.

"The Committee on the Rights of the Child is not in the business of saying 'Well said.' We are in the business of saying 'Well done.' We want to see concrete measures," he said in a phone interview from Geneva.

Austen Ivereigh, coordinator of Catholic Voices, a church advocacy group, said the report was a "shocking display of ignorance and high-handedness."

He said it failed to acknowledge the progress that has been made in recent years and that the Catholic Church in many places is now considered a leader in safeguarding children. And he noted that the committee seemed unable to grasp the distinction between the responsibilities and jurisdiction of the Holy See, and local churches on the ground.

"It takes no account of the particularities of the Holy See, treating it as if it were the HQ of a multinational corporation," he said in an email.

But victims groups hailed the report as a wake-up call to secular law enforcement officials to investigate abuse and any cover-ups, and prosecute church officials who are still protecting predator priests.

"This report gives hope to the hundreds of thousands of deeply wounded and still suffering clergy sex abuse victims across the world," said Barbara Blaine, president of the main U.S. victim's group SNAP. "Now it's up to secular officials to follow the U.N.'s lead and step in to safeguard the vulnerable because Catholic officials are either incapable or unwilling to do so."

Exclusive: AIDS patients in Obamacare limbo as insurers reject checks

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Hundreds of people with HIV/AIDS in Louisiana trying to obtain coverage under President Barack Obama's healthcare reform are in danger of being thrown out of the insurance plan they selected in a dispute over federal subsidies and the interpretation of federal rules about preventing Obamacare fraud.

Some healthcare advocates see discrimination in the move, but Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana says it is not trying to keep people with HIV/AIDS from enrolling in one of its policies under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

The state's largest carrier is rejecting checks from a federal program designed to help these patients pay for AIDS drugs and insurance premiums, and has begun notifying customers that their enrollment in its Obamacare plans will be discontinued.

The carrier says it no longer will accept third-party payments, such as those under the 1990 Ryan White Act, which many people with HIV/AIDS use to pay their premiums.

"In no event will coverage be provided to any subscribers, as of March 1, 2014, unless the premiums are paid by the subscriber (or a relative) unless otherwise required by law," Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana spokesman John Maginnis told Reuters.

AIDS FUNDS EXEMPT FROM FRAUD CONCERNS

The dispute goes back to a series of statements from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the lead Obamacare agency.

In September, CMS informed insurers that Ryan White funds "may be used to cover the cost of private health insurance premiums, deductibles, and co-payments" for Obamacare plans.

In November, however, it warned "hospitals, other healthcare providers, and other commercial entities" that it has "significant concerns" about their supporting premium payments and helping Obamacare consumers pay deductibles and other costs, citing the risk of fraud
.

The insurers told healthcare advocates that the November guidance requires them to reject payments from the Ryan White program in order to combat fraud, said Robert Greenwald, managing director of the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School, a position Louisiana Blue still maintains.

"As an anti-fraud measure, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana has implemented a policy, across our individual health insurance market, of not accepting premium payments from any third parties who are not related" to the subscriber, Maginnis said.

On Friday, CMS spokeswoman Tasha Bradley told Reuters that, to the contrary, Ryan White grantees "may use funds to pay for premiums on behalf of eligible enrollees in Marketplace plans, when it is cost-effective for the Ryan White program," meaning that having people with HIV/AIDS enroll in insurance under Obamacare could save the government money.

"The third-party payer guidance CMS released (in November) does not apply to" Ryan White programs.

Maginnis did not respond to further requests, sent after business hours, for comment on CMS's Friday statement.

Hundreds of indigent HIV/AIDS patients are dependent on Ryan White payments for Obamacare because they fall into a gap. They are not eligible for Medicaid, the joint federal-state health insurance program for the poor, because Louisiana did not expand the low-income program, and Obamacare federal subsidies don't kick in until people are at 100 percent of the federal poverty level.

Before Obamacare, the 1990 Ryan White Act offered people with HIV/AIDS federal financial help in paying for AIDS drugs and health insurance premiums, especially in state-run, high-risk pools.

Obamacare, which bans insurers from discriminating against people with preexisting conditions, was designed to replace these high-risk pools
.

Starting on October 1, AIDS advocates and others in Louisiana "were enrolling anyone and everyone we could" through the Obamacare exchange, said Lucy Cordts of the New Orleans NO/AIDS Task Force.

Last month, her clients and those of other AIDS groups began to hear from Louisiana Blue that their enrollments were in limbo because the company would not accept the Ryan White checks for premium payments.

The only other carrier that is refusing to accept such payments is Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota, according to a CMS official.

North Dakota Blue "restricts premium payment from third parties including employers, providers, and state agencies," said spokeswoman Andrea Dinneen, but "is currently reviewing its eligibility policies with respect to recipients of Ryan White Program funding."

'SURE LOOKS LIKE DISCRIMINATION'

Healthcare advocates are worried that the refusal to accept Ryan White payments is an effort by insurers to keep AIDS patients from enrolling in their plans and last month began pressing the issue, including with the office of Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu.

In an email reviewed by Reuters, a healthcare expert on Landrieu's staff wrote, "BCBS LA told me their decision was not due to the CMS guidance or any confusion (as we thought before) but was in fact due to adverse selection concerns. I have also recently learned North Dakota's BCBS plan has implemented the same policy."

Jessica Stone, the Landrieu staff member, declined to elaborate on the email further or to discuss her interactions with Louisiana Blue.

Adverse selection refers to the situation where an insurer attracts patients with chronic conditions and expensive care. Louisiana Blue's action "sure looks to us like discrimination against sick people," said John Peller, vice president for policy at the AIDS Foundation of Chicago.

Asked if it were engaging in efforts to avoid adverse selection by refusing to accept Ryan White payments for would-be customers with HIV/AIDS, Louisiana Blue said it was not trying to keep such customers out of its plans. "We welcome all Louisiana residents who chose Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana," said Maginnis.

Feds to LGBT: We'll Protect Your Marriages When States Don't
2/11/14

While 38 percent of Americans live in states that recognize LGBT individuals' right to marry, most must cope with a broad patchwork of laws in states that don't recognize their marriages.

That's why the federal government is working to give married gays across the U.S. the same rights when they're dealing with federal programs and legal proceedings as straight couples.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder issued a memo to Justice Department staff this week explaining the new guidelines to its employees, saying that among other rights, same-sex married couples can apply for federal programs, including the Sept. 11 Victim Compensation Fund. The new policy also extends to married gay couples protection against being forced to testify against a spouse in court and visitation rights in prison, both of which straight couples have long enjoyed.

“This means that, in every courthouse, in every proceeding, and in every place where a member of the Department of Justice stands on behalf of the United States—they will strive to ensure that same-sex marriages receive the same privileges, protections, and rights as opposite-sex marriages under federal law,” Holder said at a Human Rights Campaign gala in New York.

Holder has earned a reputation as a champion of marriage equality, often comparing the fight for gay rights to the civil rights movement’s battle for racial equality.

Same-sex marriage is recognized in 17 states and the District of Columbia. The federal expansion extends certain rights to those in the remaining states, Holder said, so a same-sex couple legally married in one state can now exercise its rights in a state where gay marriage isn’t allowed.

While supporters are calling this a “landmark announcement,” those who support traditional marriage have come out against the policy, deeming it a violation of states' sovereignty.

"The changes being proposed here to a process as universally relevant as the criminal justice system serve as a potent reminder of why it is simply a lie to say that redefining marriage doesn't affect everyone in society,” Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, said in a statement.

The Justice Department’s move will change for the better the lives of many committed gay and lesbian couples, advocates said.

"While the immediate effect of these policy decisions is that all married gay couples will be treated equally under the law, the long-term effects are more profound," said Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign. "Today our nation moves closer toward its ideals of equality and fairness for all.”

So that means, let's see, 50 states, minus 17 states, equals what? 33 (there's that number again!) states that don't approve of same sex marriage.

By my math, that is a majority for all you "democracy" fans. Majority wins in a democracy, right?

I've seen estimates of 5-12% of the population is gay. That means well over 80% conservatively, are not gay, so why should the minority rule over the majority based on a sexual preference of all things?

The whole deal is absurd.

Gun Club for Liberals: The Un-NRA
2/18/14

Gun owner and Second Amendment advocate Marlene Hoeber isn't your typical member of the National Rifle Association. In fact, she isn't a member of the NRA at all.

The Oakland, Calif., laboratory equipment mechanic regularly visits firing ranges, where, along with other members of her gun club, she shoots a variety of weapons. "Guns are fun to play with," she says. She even makes her own ammunition.

She has no use, however, for the NRA's conservative political agenda. By her own description, Hoeber is a feisty, liberal, transgender, tattooed, queer, activist feminist.

She belongs instead to another gun advocacy group entirely--The Liberal Gun Club--whose membership ranges, she says, "from socialists, to anarchists who can quote Marx, to Reagan Democrats."

Its mission, she says, is to provide "a place for gun owners to talk to other owners about neat gun stuff, without having to hear how the president is a Muslim-usurper-socialist running a false-flag operation."

San Jose member Walter Stockwell describes it as the NPR of gun clubs--without the tote bags.

Whereas the NRA has some 3 million members, according to Guidestar, and a budget of some $250 million, The Liberal Gun Club has 1,200 members nationally and a budget of $10,000, according to its head, Ed Gardner.

Although liberal gun owners are presumed not to exist, Gardner says they most certainly do.

By the most recent estimates, he says, about 40 percent of registered Democrats are gun owners (versus 60 percent of Republicans). He thinks 40 percent grossly understates the number of liberal owners. Reason: when some strange pollster calls an owner and asks, "Do you own a gun?" many say no to protect their privacy, according to Gardner.

The Liberal Gun Club is not alone in catering to left-leaning gun advocates. Kindred institutions include the Blue Steel Democrat, Gun Loving Liberal, Pink Pistols and the online publication American Gun Culture Report.

On its website, Pink Pistols (slogan: "Pick On Someone Your Own Caliber") urges "gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or polyamorous persons" to take up arms legally.

"We teach queers to shoot," says the site. "Then we teach others that we have done so. Armed queers don't get bashed. We change the public perception of the sexual minorities, such that those who have in the past perceived them as safe targets for violence and hateful acts will realize that now [they are] armed and effective with those arms."

The site notes that 31 states allow qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons and recommends that gays embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns.

The American Gun Culture Report, in publication since 2006, asks on its website:

"Do you like guns but hate 'gun people'? Are you uncomfortable when political 'progressives' support every Amendment from the Bill of Rights but [not] the 2nd? Does it make you crazy when 'conservatives' swear to uphold the 2nd Amendment but look the opposite way when other rights are trampled on?" If so, it says, then AGCR is for you.

The publication is an outlet for the gun-related writings of "liberals, libertarians, queers, feminists, anarchists and socialists."

To what extent does the gun industry support any of these groups?

Hoeber of The Liberal Gun Club tells ABC News, "We haven't heard a peep. We'd certainly be interested in support from the industry, if the industry was interested in being seen as supporting us. Whether we would take their money would be up to the membership. We're not likely to turn anybody away."

Says Ed Gardner about the gun industry, "It would be great to be recognized by them. We're not your typical gun owners." But, he says, apart from some outreach from makers of gun accessories, the industry hasn't offered any support.

Hoeber says her own romance with guns began in childhood.

Growing up in Philadelphia, she says, she was 6 in 1976, during the Bicentennial. "The whole city was crawling with geeks in tri-corner hats and short pants explaining to small children how a flintlock worked. I was hooked."

Living in San Francisco in her early 20s, she walked into a S.F. gun store and saw a reproduction of an old, black powder rifle. "I could buy that and take that home," she says she said to herself—and she did. "I'm a technical and mechanical person. Tinkering is a major element in my personal involvement with firearms."

Her weapons today include a WWII M1 carbine rifle and a .44-caliber pistol.

We asked if there is any distinction to be made between the kinds of guns a liberal likes and the kinds a far-right conservative might prefer.

Within the gun community, she says, conservatives have a stereotype about the kind of guns liberals like. "Conservatives assume, when they hear of our existence, that we're all into fancy double-barreled shotguns and rifles with wooden stocks." That's not the case, she says. "Our position is that scary black guns are very much okay. We do have members who think a limit on magazine capacity might be worthwhile. I personally don't believe that that kind of restriction makes the world a safer place."

Positions advocated by the Northern California Chapter of The Liberal Gun Club include:

"Additional regulations on lawful gun owners are over-prescribed political placebos that fail to cure the underlying systemic societal problems that are the root causes of violence. Instead of window-dressing 'solutions' like so-called 'assault weapons' bans and magazine capacity restrictions, we support root cause mitigation for violence prevention: stronger mental health care, addressing poverty, homelessness and unemployment."

Arizona Gov. Brewer Vetoes Controversial Bill
http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/02/25/282507942/arizona-gov-brewer-vetoes-controversial-bill?ft=1&f=1001
2/26/14

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she has vetoed controversial legislation that would have allowed business owners in her state to refuse to serve gays and others if those customers somehow offended the proprietors' religious beliefs.

Brewer, a Republican, announced her decision at a news conference held Wednesday afternoon, following a flurry of meetings between the governor and state legislators.

Update at 7:52 p.m. Brewer's Comments

"I call them like I see them," Brewer said of the proposal, "despite the cheers or the boos from the crowd."

She added:

"I have not heard one example in Arizona where a business owner's religious liberty has been violated."

"The bill is broadly worded and could result in unintended and negative consequences. After weighing all of the arguments, I have vetoed Senate Bill 1062, moments ago."

Our original post continues:

As our colleagues at KJZZ in Tempe report, Brewer had been pressed by leaders of Arizona's business community and some of her fellow Republican lawmakers to reject the legislation, known as SB 1062 (or Senate Bill 1062).

According to KJZZ, Republican strategist Jaime Molera said business leaders believed a veto would help buttress Arizona's reputation nationally — and avoid a repeat of the boycotts that followed enactment in 2010 of the controversial immigration legislation known as SB 1070.

"Three Republican state senators have reversed their position on the bill in light of the controversy it's ignited," KJZZ adds. "Sens. Adam Driggs, Steve Pierce and Bob Worsley sent Brewer a letter Monday asking her to veto the bill."

The Arizona Republic adds that:



"Business organizations, including tech giant Apple and American Airlines Group, signed onto the veto bandwagon. The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee, which is overseeing preparations for the 2015 NFL championship game in Glendale, issued a statement on Monday expressing opposition and saying the bill would 'deal a significant blow to the state's economic-growth potential.'

"And religious leaders increasingly said they saw no purpose in what supporters call a 'religious-freedom bill.' "

Apple is in the midst of investing hundreds of millions of dollars for a production facility in Arizona. In addition to creating hundreds of jobs, the massive project has also brought new infrastructure projects to the area, as the company seeks sources of renewable energy.

Announcing that project last November, Brewer said, "Apple will have an incredibly positive economic impact for Arizona, and its decision to locate here speaks volumes about the friendly, pro-business climate we have been creating these past four years."

The Arizona Capitol Times reminds us that the Super Bowl was taken away from Arizona once before, after it revoked Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a state holiday in 1987. As a result, the NFL moved the 1993 Super Bowl to Pasadena, Calif.

Smaller local businesses also weighed in — including, most famously, Rocco's Little Chicago Pizzeria, which posted a sign warning patrons that the Tucson restaurant reserves the right "to refuse service to Arizona legislators."

(http://media.npr.org/assets/img/2014/02/25/reserve_right_custom-fcba82bfe3f757710ef25b10f3d938bd65a62961-s40-c85.jpg)

As the Phoenix New Times reports, several Phoenix businesses used their Facebook pages to post pictures that included a flier designed by the local group ONE Community that states, "Open for Business to Everyone!"

Bloomberg Businessweek notes that "Arizona's bill is similar to measures proposed in Georgia, Idaho, Maine, Mississippi and Kansas in response in large part to the nation's populist gay marriage movement."

Critics say that such legislation seeks to codify bigotry. But as NPR's Alan Greenblatt reported Tuesday, experts also say social conservatives are feeling threatened by what they see as a rapidly shifting U.S. culture under President Obama's leadership.

"There's genuine fear that religious liberty could be severely restricted," John Green, an expert on religion and politics at the University of Akron, told Alan. "Whether we believe those fears are justified or not is a different question."

What I don't understand is, from a strictly secular standpoint, who is really hurt by a law like this?

If a business owner denies service to someone, that person will just go to another business down the street and give their money to them. The person gets the service they wanted while the original owner loses out on the profit (which they voluntarily forfeited for their religious convictions). What's the big deal?

Of course, we know what the big deal is.

No one except homosexuals. The "hurt" is to those who seek gay rights through legislation.

This bill would have helped protect business owners from being forced to do something that goes against their religious beliefs. From a secular stand point, outside of a religious conviction, they have a point that all people should be accepted because secular society doesn't know how to discriminate between what's good or bad seeing they have zero morals.

Ultimately, like you say, we know what the deal is. We know this is just part of the world's hypocrisy, and it won't stop or get better. The world will continue to not make any sense, and go against all logic.

The gay community cheered at Brewers decision. They think it's a victory, so they celebrate and laugh. Not so fast!...

More men speaking in girls' 'dialect', study shows
http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-25232387
12/5/13

More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows.

This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.

But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.

The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California.

"We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of California who led the research.

"We believe that uptalk is becoming more prevalent and systematic in its use for the younger generations in Southern California," she added.

The team recorded and analysed the voices of 23 native Californians aged between 18 and 22. The researchers were therefore not able to infer similar language patters in older Californians.

Sounding ditzy
 
People who speak uptalk are often misunderstood to be insecure, shallow or slightly dim, according to the team, who say this was not necessarily the case.

Speaking to the BBC's Inside Science programme, co-author Amalia Arvanati, from the University of Kent, said it was hard to know how this process started.

"People talk about Frank Zappa's song, Valley Girl. Finding out where it started is very difficult because we don't have good records of how people use pitch.

"One possibility is that this is an extension of a pitch pattern that we actually find in most varieties of English which is used when you're making a statement but you're [also] asking indirectly for the interlocutor to confirm if they are with you," Prof Arvaniti said.

She added that "uptalk" had negative connotations which made men less likely to admit to using it, but what was clear was that it was spreading.

"It grates on people, some people think it sounds really ditzy or insecure. This does not accurately come across like that to the native speakers."

Women leaders
 
Claire Nance, a linguistics lecturer at Lancaster University, commented that the research reinforced the fact that uptalk was "increasingly widespread across all kinds of people".

"Typically, women are trail-blazers in language change and take up innovative features first, then males start using them later.

"No spoken language ever remains stable and constant change is very much the norm. However, change often causes alarm among people who do not use an innovative feature, and uptalk appears to be another example of this trend," Dr Nance added.

She explained that speakers may use uptalk to convey politeness or empathy with the listener, but that this was not always understood by non-uptalkers, perhaps due to its similarity to question intonation.

could it just be that the valley girls of yesteryear are now raising their kids, and their kids are having kids, thus the "dialect" is transferred from generation to generation as the children learn to talk?  ::)

Gay couples find uneven access to health insurance
3/27/14

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Nearly every day for three months, Carl Bechdel had to make calls or send emails to try to get family insurance coverage for his husband and himself under President Barack Obama's landmark health law.

The Harrisburg, Pa., couple had sent an insurer their application and a month's premium in early December but heard nothing. Weeks later, they were told their application was not processed because Pennsylvania doesn't recognize same-sex marriage. So Bechdel pushed back, repeatedly explaining their predicament in phone calls and emails. Finally, they got a call and apology from the president of the insurance company last month, plus a family plan that started in March.

"It was never a matter of price. It was a matter of respect," said Bechdel, a 60-year-old retired attorney who married Dan Miller in 2012 in Washington, D.C.

For gay couples, access to family insurance plans under the law is not guaranteed this year, and their options run the gamut, mirroring in part the patchwork of state laws governing same-sex marriage that have changed rapidly in recent years.S

In Iowa, where gay marriage is legal, insurers selling plans in the marketplace created under the law offer policies to gay couples and families. But the major company in Tennessee's marketplace does not offer coverage at all to same-sex couples. Policies vary by insurer in Florida. And in Ohio, a couple sued for access to family insurance plans.

The federal government has belatedly sought to solve the inconsistencies, telling insurers this month that if they offer spousal coverage to heterosexual couples, they must provide that benefit to legally married, same-sex couples. But that doesn't become a requirement until next year, and doesn't address coverage for couples in civil unions and domestic partnerships.

In the meantime, the administration has encouraged companies to comply with the new policy voluntarily. Federal regulations do not require insurers to offer any family policies. And when companies do, they have some flexibility in how they define family members.

In Aberdeen, N.C., Thomas Hafke, 30, went online in December and bought a family plan for his husband and himself from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.

But the Chapel Hill-based company then canceled family coverage it sold to Hafke and about 20 other same-sex couples through the marketplace because of contract phrasing that defined "spouse" as "opposite sex."

"It felt like legalized discrimination," said Hafke, a server, who married 32-year-old Chad Higby in Washington, D.C., last fall.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield reversed course in January, saying it would offer the coverage to same-sex married couples and domestic partners.

"It was very important for these people to be able to purchase family coverage," said Michelle Douglas, a Blue Cross and Blue Shield spokeswoman. "In recognition of that, the company made the decision to make that coverage available."

Knowing that a partner can get coverage is one of the more effective messages in getting those in the LGBT community to enroll in a plan under the law, said Katie Keith, a researcher at Trimpa Group, a consulting firm that works with gay rights advocates.

"Even though it's not a requirement for 2014, it makes it more of a possibility for people," Keith said.

While it will be months before insurers are obligated to offer such coverage, gay rights groups have praised the administration's move, saying it brings some clarity to the issue and will ease access for gay couples when the requirement takes effect next year.

"Many same-sex married couples and their families are hurting right now because they've been refused access to more affordable family health insurance plans," Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said in a statement.

Bechdel and his husband sought coverage from one of Pennsylvania's biggest insurers, Pittsburgh-based Highmark Inc. The insurer is now reworking its policies there and in West Virginia to let same-sex couples and domestic partners purchase family coverage, a spokesman said. In the meantime, the company has worked with about 15 couples in the two states to get them family policies.

"Originally, the products were developed following the guidelines of recognized marriage of state laws," said Aaron Billger, a Highmark spokesman.

In Delaware, where Highmark also offers plans and same-sex marriage is legal, the insurer already provides such coverage for gay couples.

The company expects to offer family coverage in the early spring in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Other gay couples have found uneven access to family plans.

Al Cowger Jr. and Tony Wesley Jr. of suburban Cleveland sued the state of Ohio and U.S. government after hours-long phone calls and months of trying to get family coverage through the federal insurance marketplace.

The couple, who have been together for 28 years, married in 2012 in upstate New York and have a 7-year-old adopted daughter. They say that because of Ohio's gay marriage ban, they have been denied a family plan under Obama's law in violation of their constitutional rights.

In their lawsuit, Cowger said he talked to help-desk personnel with healthcare.gov who told him that he and Wesley had been approved for family coverage in the marketplace. But a problem surfaced when the representative tried to purchase the policy and couldn't.

Cowger said he was then told he couldn't get family coverage because Ohio does not recognize his marriage. But the insurance company, Medical Mutual of Ohio, says it offers family coverage to same-sex couples both on and off the exchange.

"After 28 years," Cowger said recently, "we're just so sick of having to jump through hoops and get around all these restrictions, all the stuff that comes with these prohibitions, to be treated like a family."

It might as well be, considering how people are cowing down in fear of the gay lobby, so gays are getting stuff done that under normal conditions wouldn't happen, but now there is major fear spreading that people will get sued if they don't accept gays.

Another Glaring Example of Gay Intolerance

We’ve heard it for years now from gay activists: “You need to be tolerant and inclusive. You need to embrace diversity.”

The only problem is that in reality, tolerance, inclusivity and diversity only go one way—and pity the person who dares challenge that narrow and exclusive way.

This is a lesson that Brendan Eich, the CEO of the Internet giant Mozilla, just learned firsthand, with employees calling for his resignation because, in 2008, he made a donation to support Proposition 8 in California, upholding marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Of course, had he supported the redefinition of marriage in 2008, he would be hailed as a hero today.

Just think of Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, who, together with his wife, donated $2.5 million to support the effort to redefine marriage in Washington state in 2012, to the celebration of the media.

Or think of Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks and also an avid supporter of homosexual "marriage."

When a Starbucks shareholder noted at a public meeting in March 2013 that profits were down after a boycott of Starbucks was called for by pro-family organizations, Schultz gave an unequivocal reply, which was widely praised: “If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38 percent you got last year, it’s a free country. You can sell your shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much.”

Ah, the voice of tolerance and diversity!

Other top companies also raised their voices in 2012-2013 in support of redefining marriage, including Microsoft (which released an ad for Outlook featuring two women kissing on the courthouse steps after getting married); Expedia; Budweiser; HBO; Smirnoff; Kenneth Cole; Levi’s; Nordstrom; and Kraft, maker of Oreo Cookies (Kraft released a multistacked rainbow Oreo cookie for Gay Pride Month).

As reported by Laura Stampler in Business Insider on March 28, 2013, “While the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding the legalization of gay marriage this week, some of the biggest companies in the world risked isolating its [sic] conservative consumer base to come out in loud support of marriage equality.”

Yes, all these companies were calling for tolerance and diversity, standing as champions of inclusivity—unless, of course, you happened to disagree with their position. In that case, you were quickly branded an intolerant bigot, a narrow-minded Bible-basher, a disciple of the late Fred Phelps.

Just ask Dan Cathy, now CEO of Chick-fil-A, who has deemed it prudent to withdraw entirely from the culture wars, not wanting his company to be associated with divisive social issues after the controversy that surrounded Chick-fil-A in 2012.

As reported by Forbes.com, which mocked Cathy’s values with the headline “Gay Marriage Still Wrong, But I'll Shut Up About It and Sell Chicken,” Cathy now agrees “that the ‘lingering identity’ of Chick-fil-A with ‘anti-gay groups’ that jumped to its defense in 2012 has meant ‘alienating market segments.’”

And this, of course, underscores the irony of the upside-down world in which we live: If you, as a business leader, say, “I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, in keeping with the definition of marriage throughout our history,” you are now dragging your company into the culture wars, creating undue controversy, mixing business with politics and alienating certain segments of the market.

But if you say, “I believe that we should radically redefine marriage, change our laws and our education system to reflect those changes, and create a new model previously unknown in history,” then you are not dragging your company into the culture wars or alienating certain segments of the market.

As for Brendan Eich, it is now being reported that, “staff at tech company Mozilla are calling for CEO Brendan Eich to resign a week after he took the job, after it emerged that he gave donations to an anti-LGBT campaign.”

Oh, the horror!

And how much did he give? Did Eich’s donation match the extravagant giving toward LGBT causes by executives like Tim Gill, founder of Quark, who gave $10 million in 2006 alone; or the aforementioned $2.5 million donation of Amazon’s Jeff Bezos; or the $1.5 million of Yahoo! investor Daniel Loeb; or the $600,000 and $100,000, respectively, from Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer; or even the $100,000 and $40,000, respectively, from Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin, given in opposition to Proposition 8?

Not a chance. Eich donated $1,000 to support marriage in 2008 (yes, just $1,000), and for this single, relatively tiny act, his employees are in an uproar, with tweets like this being commonplace: “I'm an employee of @mozilla and cannot reconcile having @BrendanEich as CEO.”

Or this one, which includes a classic example of gay activist doublespeak: “To me, @Mozilla is about openness & expression of freedom. I hope to see us have leadership that represents those values in their actions.”

What? Mozilla is “about openness & expression of freedom,” and so, to paraphrase, “I’m calling for the censure of the CEO of the company because his views differ from mine”?

Eich, for his part, was quick to repent of his transgressions, as it is reported, “In a post on his blog entitled Incluseiveness [sic] at Mozilla, Eich responded to the criticism and said: ‘I express my sorrow at having caused pain’ and promised an ‘active commitment to equality’ at the firm.

“'I am committed to ensuring that Mozilla is, and will remain, a place that includes and supports everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, economic status, or religion.'”

Perhaps after serving some time in a tolerance re-education camp, Eich will be deemed fit to lead the company. And perhaps he can explain to us how, in keeping with his profession of “inclusiveness,” he is actually supporting those employees who, for religious or other reasons, supported Proposition 8, as he once did. Or does inclusion go only one way?

As I’ve said on a number of occasions in the last few years, Orwell would be proud.

Mississippi Lawmakers Pass Controversial 'Religious Freedom' Bill

Mississippi lawmakers passed a controversial "religious freedom" bill on Tuesday night, allowing residents to sue over laws they claim go against their religious beliefs, the Washington Post reported.

Supporters of the bill say it protects religious freedoms while critics suggest it's a way to discriminate against gays and lesbians -- similar to the bill infamously proposed in Arizona in February, which ended up being vetoed by Gov. Jan Brewer.

The legislation was introduced last week for a third time. Twice before, lawmakers missed key deadlines, putting the bill at risk.

The most recent version also took out parts that certain civil rights groups opposed, the Post said. The state's House and Senate -- both controlled by the GOP -- passed the bill by wide margins.

The bill also adds "In God We Trust" to the state seal, which Gov. Phil Bryant said he supports.

"This is a victory for the First Amendment and the right to live and work according to one's conscience," Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council, said in a statement. "This commonsense measure was a no-brainer for freedom, and like the federal [Religious Freedom Restoration Act], it simply bars government discrimination against religious exercise. The legislature gave strong approval to a bill that declares that individuals do not have to trade their religious freedom for entrance into public commerce."

The American Civil Liberties Union suggested otherwise.

"We remain hopeful that courts throughout the state will reject any attempts to use religion to justify discrimination," Jennifer Riley-Collins, executive director of Mississippi's ACLU chapter, said in a statement. "Nobody should be refused service because of who they are."

Mozilla Co-Founder Brendan Eich Resigns as CEO, Leaves Foundation Board

Brendan Eich, the well-known techie who has gotten swept up in a controversy about his support of California’s anti-gay marriage law Proposition 8, is resigning as CEO of for-profit Mozilla Corporation and also from the board of the nonprofit foundation which wholly owns it.

Mozilla confirmed the change in a blog post.

“Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves,” read the post, in part. “We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.”

In several interviews this week, Eich had insisted that he would not step down from the job he was only recently appointed to, due to the intense backlash over a $1,000 donation he made in 2008 in support of the ballot measure to ban gay marriage.

“So I don’t want to talk about my personal beliefs because I kept them out of Mozilla all these 15 years we’ve been going,” he said to the Guardian, for example, yesterday. “I don’t believe they’re relevant.”

Not so, of course. In an interview this morning, Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker said that Eich’s ability to lead the company that makes the Firefox Web browser had been badly damaged by the continued scrutiny over the hot-button issue, which had actually been known since 2012 inside the Mozilla community.

“It’s clear that Brendan cannot lead Mozilla in this setting,” said Baker, who added that she would not and could not speak for Eich. “The ability to lead — particularly for the CEO — is fundamental to the role and that is not possible here.”

She said that Eich — who created the JavaScript programming language, among other prominent computing achievements — had not been forced to resign by her or others on its board, which includes prominent Silicon Valley entrepreneur and investor Reid Hoffman.

“I think there has been pressure from all sides, of course, but this is Brendan’s decision,” Baker said. “Given the circumstances, this is not surprising.”

Indeed, those circumstances included vocal protests on Twitter by Mozilla staffers and a call by the OkCupid dating site to not use Firefox.

The controversy has been a difficult one for Mozilla, which could be described as more of a movement than a tech company and which has a very vocal community around it.

It has also resulted in scrutiny of its governance, in which Baker and also Eich — who have worked together for 15 years since founding Mozilla on deeply held beliefs over the development of an open Internet — played a big part.

In addition, three of Mozilla Corporation’s board members — former Mozilla CEO and current Greylock Partners VC John Lilly, former Mozilla CEO Gary Kovacs and well-known tech exec Ellen Siminoff — have recently resigned.

But each of their departures seems to have been only tangentially related to Eich’s appointment — though none of them supported his selection as CEO, according to numerous sources, for other reasons — and not to the controversy over Prop 8.

Baker said that she had not known about Eich’s views on gay marriage throughout most of their working relationship, until the donation came to light last year.

“That was shocking to me, because I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness,” she said, noting that there was a long and public community process about what to do about it in which Eich, then CTO, participated. “But I overestimated that experience.”

Baker — who became emotional at one point during the interview — noted that she was “doing a fair amount of self-reflection and I am wondering how did I miss it that this would matter more when he was the CEO.”

Preserving Mozilla’s integrity was paramount, she said, especially since “we are heading into a period of global mass surveillance and the role of those fighting against will be more important than ever.”

She added: “This is hard since Brendan is a founder and has contributed so much here. But making sure others continue to join and support Mozilla’s efforts is even more important.”

Baker said there was not another leading candidate for the CEO role as yet, although Mozilla had been conducting an extensive search using Spencer Stuart before the Eich selection, which also included another internal candidate, Jay Sullivan.

“There are certainly very talented people we have talked to, so we are not at ground zero by any means,” she said. “But we are now in the middle of what is clearly a crisis, and this had to happen.”

A crisis indeed, not helped much by a series of Eich interviews this week, in which he declined to apologize and used what can only be described as pretzel logic about how a clearly tolerant community like Mozilla should also support what many now consider intolerant beliefs.

Eich told the Guardian, for example: “So far we’ve been able to bring people together of diverse beliefs including on things like marriage equality. We couldn’t have done this, we couldn’t have done Firefox One. I would’ve been excluded, someone else would’ve been excluded because of me — I wouldn’t have done that personally, they’d have just left. So imagine a world without Firefox: not good.”

He also dragged in a truly bizarre point about people in Indonesia not liking gays marrying to justify his continued leadership. He noted to the newspaper that LGBT marriage was “not considered universal human rights yet, and maybe they will be, but that’s in the future, right now we’re in a world where we have to be global to have effect.”

(Hey Brendan, does that mean we need to just say bygones about some of the virulent anti-women sentiments and laws in some countries, since it’s a Firefox world after all? No, I did not think so.)

“I think I’m the best person for the job and I’m doing the job,” Eich insisted to the Guardian.

Throughout the interviews, it was not hard to get the sense that Eich really wanted to stick strongly by his views about gay marriage, which run counter to much of the tech industry and, increasingly, the general population in the U.S. For example, he repeatedly declined to answer when asked if he would donate to a similar initiative today.

Instead, he tried to unsuccessfully hedge those sentiments and, perhaps more importantly, did not seem to understand that he might have to pay the inevitable price for having them.

Thus, something had to give — and it did.

When asked about worries that the continuing controversy about Eich would have had broader impact, such as negotiations to renew a longtime lucrative contract with Google — which has been a high-profile supporter of gay rights — Baker said that while making this move aligned with that, it was not a factor in Eich’s departure.

“This is more important than business relationships,” she said.

Here is the full Mozilla blog post on the Eich departure:

Bill Maher: "There Is A Gay Mafia -- If You Cross Them, You Do Get Whacked"

In the online-only "Overtime" portion of his HBO show Real Time, host Bill Maher weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and did not react in a way that you would think. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 donation to support a ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in California.

"Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don't think it's very fair," guest panelist fmr. Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA) said.

"Good point," Maher responded.

"I think there is a gay mafia," Maher said. "I think if you cross them, you do get whacked."

Transcript below.

    MAHER: What do you think about the Mozilla CEO having to step down over his donation to a pro-Proposition 8 group.

    The Mozilla -- which I'm wearing right now, by the way. I didn't know what Mozilla was. I saw it on my computer, but -- it's Firefix, right? It's the browser.

    So this guy apparently does not want gay people to get married and he had to step down. What do you think of that, the question asks.

    FMR. REP. TOM DAVIS (R-VA): Because he gave $1,000 eight years ago and it's come back to haunt him.

    CARRIE SHEFFIELD, FORBES: Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don't think it's very fair.

    MAHER: Good point. Also, I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.

If You Do Not Conform, The Thought Nazis WILL Get You

If you do not conform to the new politically correct moral code in America, you cannot be a CEO of a major corporation.  If you think that I am joking, just read on.  I am actually deadly serious.  If you are a young person in America today, what you believe about certain issues is going to determine how high you can climb the ladder in your professional life.  In fact, a day is rapidly approaching when anyone that wants to have any measure of professional success in our society is going to have to conform to the moral code.  If you choose not to conform, the thought Nazis WILL get you.

Just check out what happened to Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich this week.  He was forced out after it was discovered that he had donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 back in 2008…

    Mozilla Chief Executive Brendan Eich has stepped down, the company said on Thursday, after an online dating service urged a boycott of the company’s web browser because of a donation Eich made to opponents of gay marriage.

He broke the politically-correct moral code of the thought Nazis, so he must pay.

It doesn’t matter that 52 percent of the voters in California actually voted in favor of Proposition 8.

It doesn’t matter that this is something that happened six years ago.

It doesn’t even matter that he was really good at his job…

    While gay activists applauded the move, many in the technology community lamented the departure of Eich, who invented the programming language Javascript and co-founded Mozilla.

    “Brendan Eich is a good friend of 20 years, and has made a profound contribution to the Web and to the entire world,” venture capitalist Marc Andreessen tweeted.

He broke the code and so he must pay.

And in case you are wondering, this basically means that anyone who is against gay marriage is now essentially disqualified from being CEO of any major corporation in America.

So if you are a CEO and you are reading this, you better keep your mouth shut if you want to keep your job.

The thought Nazis are monitoring you.

But this isn’t just happening in the private sector.  According to a stunning Buzzfeed report, Barack Obama told the top military officers in this country that they could either support the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell or they could resign…

    In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign, the Commandant of the Coast Guard said.

    In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything he said to us, that’s private communications within the Oval Office, but if we didn’t agree with it — if any of us didn’t agree with it — we all had the opportunity to resign our commissions and go do other things,” he said.

Could this have something to do with the widespread purging of the military that has taken place under Obama?

That is a very good question.

But one thing is crystal clear – if you want to rise to the top of the U.S. military in the future, you better conform to the new moral code.

If not, the thought Nazis will come after you.

We live at a time when political correctness in America has gotten completely and totally out of control.  If you can believe it, there is even a major movement to ban the word “bossy”…

    Sheryl Sandberg, the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook and author of the best-selling book “Lean In,” has recruited a slew of celebrities to launch a national campaign to ban the word “bossy,” claiming it discourages girls from taking on leadership roles.

    “I think the word ‘bossy’ is just a squasher,” “Glee” star Jane Lynch says in a campaign PSA, while Beyonce states: “I’m not bossy… I’m the boss.” Actress Jennifer Garner asserts that “being labeled something matters,” and famed fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg adds the kicker that we “should just ban the word ‘bossy’.”

    Singer Victoria Beckham, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Girl Scouts USA CEO Anna Maria Chavez and CNN foreign correspondent Christiane Amanpour are also involved in the campaign urging the word be silenced.

If we continue down this path, what will this nation look like in a few years?

During a recent interview, Dr. Ben Carson compared the current political environment in the United States to Nazi Germany…

    “[We're] very much like Nazi Germany,” he responded. “And I know you’re not supposed to say ‘Nazi Germany,’ but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population.”

    “We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe,” he continued. “And it’s because of the PC police, it’s because of politicians, it’s because of news. All of these things are combining to stifle people’s conversation.”

And you know what?

He is right.

We are becoming more like Nazi Germany with each passing day.  In fact, if you want to read much more about this, please see my previous article entitled “25 Signs That America Is Rapidly Becoming More Like Nazi Germany“.

In America, we are supposed to be able to believe what we want to believe.

In recent years, about half of the nation has been in favor of gay marriage and about half the nation has been against it.

Are we now going to tell half the country that they are going to be banned from holding any high position in our society unless they conform to the new moral code?

What kind of country will we have if we do that?

That is fear tactics, because that's simply not true. What happened at Mozilla was internal, but yes, it was over his anti-gay marriage stance, and the one who pushed it was one of his co-founders of Mozilla, "Mitchel" Baker (they say she's a female married to some software guy, but looking at her I have my doubts!), who had become CEO of the Mozilla Foundation, which owns Mozilla Firefox.

just what is she trying to say with that strange hairdo?

The country went nuts over this in AZ,yet passes with out so much as a blub in MS

Here's why...

The nation has a new state law that goes both ways, it seems. And the interesting thing about the law is that even its supporters think it doesn’t go all the way.

Last week, Mississippi governor Phil Bryant signed the Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act that lets the state’s citizens and businesses challenge laws they believe substantially conflict with their religious beliefs.

If this sounds familiar, it should. Several states have considered similar bills recently. In February, Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoed a bill  that raised a ruckus across the land because it would have let business owners use their religious beliefs to discriminate against people, specifically homosexuals.

The big difference between the Mississippi law and the vetoed Arizona bill is that in Mississippi people and businesses can now sue in state court, not just in federal court, to prove an existing local ordinance or state law forces them into sin. In Arizona, homosexuality would have been put up there on the sign that reads: “No shirt, no shoes, no service.”

Opponents of the Mississippi law, like the Human Rights Council, say it is now basically open season against gays in the Magnolia State because it could allow people to refuse service to gays and minorities by suing for exemptions to any future anti-discrimination laws. (It should be noted that there is no state law specifically against discrimination in Mississippi.)

Supporters say if the law had been around earlier, it could have helped a pastor fight a city ordinance that prevented setting up a church on the town square. The Holly Springs ordinance said 60 percent of the surrounding property owners had to agree to have a church as a neighbor. The pastor had to take the fight to a federal court before the city would agree to a settlement.
Sound confusing? Well, it is. And, as happens when people start clamoring about who discriminates against whom, the arguments drip with irony.

Let’s write those two previous paragraphs another way:

Opponents of the Mississippi law say it is still possible for people to use their religion as a basis for discrimination, while supporters say the law will help keep people from being the victims of discrimination based on their religion.

The political process is another irony. Opponents to the bill flexed their political muscle from the get-go by raising a red rainbow flag of warning in the national media and through old-fashion statehouse arm twisting by organizations like GLADD  and the Human Rights Council that brought in celebrity big hitters like former ‘N Sync singer Lance Bass. This pushback resulted in several amendments to a bill that undoubtedly would have gone a whole lot farther up the dirt road of discrimination if the state had denied opponents their civil right to lobby and to protest.

History has its own irony to throw in. As pointed out by Mississippi house speaker Philip Gunn, the bill is pretty much like the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act signed by President Clinton. In short, the act said the federal government has to have a really, really good reason to keep a person from exercising religious freedom. In other words, Uncle Sam better have a good excuse to compel a person to sin.

The Supreme Court later said the act does not apply to the states, which is why we’re seeing these restoration to religious freedom acts popping up all around the country
.

Here is one last irony to throw in, just for good measure. At the time, the RFRA had the support of not only the Christian Legal Society, but also the American Civil Liberties Union, proving once again that politics makes for strange bedfellows.

One of the regulars down at Sparky’s Diner said something the other day that folks might want to keep in mind about this and future debates over religion freedom and discrimination. The freedom to have a belief, whether religious or sexual orientation, is not a license to impose that belief on those with different or differing beliefs. Actually, the real comment was “Be careful, ‘cause someday, your ox is gonna be the one to get gored.”

I read a bit about RFRA recently(which was put out under Clinton/Congress in 1993 - yes, it was a BIPARTISAN bill) - I don't understand it completely, but nonetheless it seemed to be designed as just that...INTENSIFY the whole Hegelian Dialectic game over this "religious freedom" agenda. Ultimately, even the courts subsequently have been a MIXED BAG over this since then(POLARIZED is the more appropriate word here).

It's been all by design.

Front-Page Gay Marriage Kiss Proves Unprofitable for Newspaper

A regional newspaper has reportedly lost “thousands of sales” after publishing a picture of two homosexual men kissing on its front page.

The Bristol Post featured the image on March 31 to mark the city’s first same-sex marriage.

Editor Mike Norton says the drop in sales surprises him, as the paper received only nine complaints.

“But, clearly, what people say and what people do are different," he says. "Of course, I knew that. But I didn’t think it would apply in this case.”

He adds, “I’ve decided to ask the Internet. I want to hear from the people who didn’t buy the paper because of that picture. Tell me why. I ask only that you are reasoned and honest. But I want to start a dialogue and genuinely understand why the picture put you off.”

In March, the BBC heard how the government “completely ignored” two-thirds of a million traditional marriage supporters.

An audience member told BBC’s Question Time that “a huge swath of the population” had been sidelined by the government.

She referred to the Coalition for Marriage petition supporting traditional marriage, which has over 668,000 signatures.

Comments on Norton’s blog vary. Some defend the newspaper’s decision to publish the image. Others say the sales dip reflects how those opposed to same-sex marriage are fearful of voicing their opinions in public.

The CEO of Mozilla stepped down last week after coming under fire for backing traditional marriage.

Brendan Eich, who also created the widely used JavaScript computer language, had previously given $1,000 to Proposition 8, supporting marriage between one man and one woman.

Author Andrew Sullivan, who is homosexual, says, however, the backlash “disgusts him” and wonders if Eich will “now be forced to walk through the streets in shame.”

Sullivan adds, “Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me—as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society.”

Christian Speaker Detained at Canadian Border Over Opposition to Homosexuality

American citizen and Christian speaker Peter LaBarbera was detained at the Canadian border and denied entry to the country as a result of his work opposing homosexuality, according to reports.

LaBarbera, who is director of the United States-based group Americans for Truth about Homosexuality and was scheduled to speak at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association this weekend, stated that he spent hours responding to questions from authorities with the Canada Border Services Agency after his flight landed Thursday night in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The agency was allegedly responding to a campaign initiated by a homosexual rights group set to stop LaBarbera from entering the country. LaBarbera’s passport was seized and he was released temporarily to the custody of Bill Whatcott, a prominent activist in Canada who has challenged free speech issues in the country.

LaBarbera, was set to speak on the link between pro-abortion and homosexual activism during the pro-life conference, was then ordered to return today to appear before a board of the Canada Border Services Agency at Regina International Airport for an appeal on whether his message violates Canada’s hate propaganda law.

Americans for Truth About Homosexuality defines itself as a non-partisan, non-profit group “dedicated to exposing the homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist agendas,” and according to his site, LaBarbera believes he “had been flagged as a result of a campaign by the leftist group Intolerance Free Weyburn” as an “alleged purveyer of ‘hate.’”

“After questioning me about the purpose of my scheduled presentation at the SPLA event; rifling through my luggage, which contained numerous books and literature related to homosexuality (pro and con); examining the contents of my laptop and my cell phone; playing a DVD of my speech Wednesday at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio; and critically viewing AFTA’s website – a preliminary decision was made to deny my entrance into Canada on the basis that my speech at the SPLA would violate Canada’s ‘Hate Propaganda’ law (essentially the potential for ‘public incitement of hatred’ against a group of people based on their ‘sexual orientation’),” he stated.

LaBarbera said the “Orwellian experience at customs dragged on for more than three hours as a formal document was issued outlining my denial of entry under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.”

Matt Barber of BarbWire.com, a friend of LaBarbera’s, also outlined in a blog post on Friday that Canadian border agent Darren Bannick told LaBarbera that evidence was found on his website that he was “targeting” a group of people based on their sexual orientation.

LaBarbera has stated that he hates no one, but rather only desires for men to be freed from sin.

“As an evangelical Christian, I believe that all people, including homosexuals, must be treated with respect and the grace of Christ. As a sinner myself, I am no ‘better’ than the man or woman engaged in homosexual sin. We all need the forgiveness of Jesus Christ,” he wrote in a previous blog post.

“I adhere to the universal philosophy shared by so many who follow Christ: ‘Love the sinner. Hate the sin,’” he continued. “In fact, if I truly lacked compassion and hated homosexuals as my detractors falsely and maliciously claim, I would not have been invited to speak by the leaders of the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association.”

Eph 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

University of South Carolina To Teach Your Daughter How To Be A Lesbian

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:” Romans 1:26

Funny thing, if people really are “born gay”, why would they ever have to be taught it? Hmm…

Campus Reform: An upcoming LGBTQ seminar at the University of South Carolina Upstate (USCU) will teach students How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less and will focus on LGBTQ cultural mores. According to the school’s website, theater artist Leigh Hendrix will perform her one-woman show,How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less, to kick off the sixth Bodies of Knowledge Symposium and Conference.

The show is a one-hour performance that follows Butchy McDyke, a motivational speaker and expert lesbian, as she “deftly guides her captive audience in an exploration of self-discovery and first love, coming out, lesbian sex, queer politics, and a really important Reba McEntire song.”

Hendrix encourages her audience to shout “I’m a big ‘ol dyke!” in a show that is “one part instructional seminar, one part personal story, and one part wacky performance art.”

The symposium is funded by outside grants as well as university funds according to Dr. Lisa Johnson, the Director of the Center for Women’s & Gender Studies at USCU. Dr. Johnson declined to discuss what percentage of the funding was coming from the university.

“Until you call and ask how much money has been spent on heterosexual literature, I’m not going to answer that question,” Johnson told Campus Reform.

Earlier this month, the South Carolina House of Representatives voted to cut almost $70,000 in funding for two public universities, including $17,142 from USCU, over literature containing gay themes. source – Campus Reform

Canadian Border Agency Overturns Decision to Bar Biblical Marriage Speaker from Country

The Canadian Border Services Agency has overturned a decision to deny a Christian speaker entry into the country because of his biblically-based work in opposition of homosexual behavior.

As previously reported, Peter LaBarbera, the director of the U.S.-based Christian ministry Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, spent hours responding to questions from authorities with the Canada Border Services Agency after his flight landed Thursday night in Regina, Saskatchewan. He was seeking entrance into the country as he was scheduled to speak on the link between pro-abortion and homosexual activism at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association this weekend.

LaBarbera was told that he was being detained over a possible violation of the Criminal Code of Canada regarding the “public incitement of hatred.”

The Canadian Border Services agency was allegedly responding to a campaign initiated by the homosexual rights group Intolerance Free Weyburn, which was set to stop LaBarbera from crossing the Canadian border. According to a blog post from LaBarbera, the agency seized his passport and searched his belongings before releasing the speaker to the custody of Bill Whatcott, a prominent activist in Canada who has challenged free speech issues in the country.

“After questioning me about the purpose of my scheduled presentation at the SPLA event; rifling through my luggage, which contained numerous books and literature related to homosexuality (pro and con); examining the contents of my laptop and my cell phone; playing a DVD of my speech Wednesday at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio; and critically viewing AFTA’s website – a preliminary decision was made to deny my entrance into Canada on the basis that my speech at the SPLA would violate Canada’s ‘Hate Propaganda’ law,” he stated.

He was scheduled to reappear before the Canadian Border Service on Friday for an appeal, at which time the decision to deny entry was reversed.

“[The guards] said quite simply and immediately that the person in charge did not feel they had grounds to apply the hate propaganda law to my appearance,” LaBarbera told the Leader-Post following the hearing. “That’s gratifying, as always.”

The Christian speaker and writer says that while he finds his initial treatment by the border agency disturbing, he understands that it had been under pressure to bar his entrance, and is thankful that the decision was overturned.

“There was a concerted effort by Intolerance Free Weyburn, ironically named as they are, to specifically lobby a government agency to block speech and I think it’s a good precedent that ultimately their demands were not honored,” he told the Montreal Gazette.

LaBarbera said that free speech—in both America and Canada—should allow for a civil discussion on the matter of homosexuality without punishment by the government.

“You should be able to have a debate on this issue,” LaBarbera said. “There are hateful homosexual activists, there are hateful people on the right, but hopefully we can have a civil debate for people who can be willing to disagree without hating the other side.”

Christians Arrested on Canadian Campus for Distributing Literature Against Homosexual Behavior

Two Christians who focus their ministry efforts on the defense of the biblical family were arrested on a Canadian university campus on Monday after officials asked them to leave when they disagreed with the content of the literature that they sought to distribute.

Peter LaBarbera, the director of the U.S.-based Christian ministry Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, and Canadian activist Bill Whatcott were placed in handcuffs and escorted off the University of Regina campus when they refused to leave.

“We are a diverse campus. We are a welcoming campus,” Vice President Tom Chase told reporters. “We celebrate that diversity, and our staff felt that the material and some of the things they had with them simply contravened that policy and we asked them to leave.”

But Whatcott asserted that the men had a right to be on campus and that they should not be censored for the content of their speech.

“I’m not leaving,” Whatcott told university officials after being barred from distributing the literature, according to reports. “You guys are intolerant and should be ashamed of yourselves for shutting down our message without even considering it.”

When Whatcott and LaBarbera proceeded with their outreach, they were arrested, charged with mischief and later released. However, university officials told CBC News that the Christians would be monitored for any behavior that could promote hatred against homosexuals.

“I’m a Christian. I can’t hate people,” LaBarbera told reporters after the incident. “We all struggle with sin—[homosexuality] just doesn’t happen to be my sin. But the idea that you can’t have an open debate on homosexuality on a college campus and that some speech code is brought in to kick people off because they have a viewpoint that most students probably haven’t heard, seems to me to be pretty undemocratic.”

He was wearing a t-shirt with text regarding “hate crimes against Christians who disagree with homosexuality” when he was escorted away in handcuffs.

As previously reported, LaBarbera spent hours responding to questions from authorities with the Canada Border Services Agency last Thursday night after his flight landed Regina, Saskatchewan. He was stopped as he sought entrance into the country as a scheduled speaker at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association conference, held this past weekend.

According to reports, the Canadian Border Services agency was allegedly responding to a campaign initiated by the homosexual rights group Intolerance Free Weyburn, which was set to stop LaBarbera from crossing the Canadian border. LaBarbera was told that he was being detained over a possible violation of the Criminal Code of Canada regarding the “public incitement of hatred,” and his belongings were searched. He reappeared before the Canadian Border Service on Friday for an appeal, at which time the decision to deny entry was reversed.

“[The guards] said quite simply and immediately that the person in charge did not feel they had grounds to apply the hate propaganda law to my appearance,” LaBarbera told the Leader-Post following the hearing. “That’s gratifying, as always.”

LaBarbera and Whatcott are scheduled to appear in court on May 26. The plan to continue their outreach at the University of Saskatchewan today.

LGBT Activists Target Amazon
Outraged that company allows users to donate to Boy Scouts of America


 A new anti-Amazon campaign has been launched by some in the LGBT community outraged over the company’s charity donation program that gives purchasers the option to donate to Boy Scouts of America.

Amazon’s new program Amazon Smile allows shoppers to pick from a wide range of charities to which to dedicate a portion of the price of purchase items at no cost the buyer. The creative charitable program has earned widespread praise.

But some on the Left are not so enthused. The reason: one of the charities listed is the Boy Scouts of America. In response, a new anti-Amazon petition has been created, and one particular Huffington Post writer is attempting to drum up support for the campaign.

HuffPo’s Pascal Tessier—who calls himself the “First Openly Gay Youth Eagle Scout”—declared the new program “nothing to smile about,” created a Change.org petition, and has published an article decrying Amazon’s failure to discriminate against users’ support of the discriminatory organization (or something).

Here is an excerpt from Tessier’s plea for support of his anti-Amazon petition:

    Amazon is a progressive company, and it's a friend of the LGBT community. Jeff Bezos donated several million dollars to Washington State's marriage equality campaign. And that was exactly why I started a Change.org petition asking Amazon to follow its own polices, and to delist the BSA until they stop discriminating against Scout leaders like Geoff.

    In fact, Amazon Smile's own website specifically states that eligible organizations must agree to a "participation agreement" before they are deemed eligible. And if you actually look at that agreement, it says right there under "Eligible Organizations," plain as day, that those organizations cannot "engage in, support, encourage, or promote: intolerance, discrimination or discriminatory practices based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age."

Iowa Newspaper Editor Fired for Criticizing ‘Queen James Bible’ on Personal Blog

 A newspaper editor in Iowa has been fired for opining on his personal blog that the Queen James Bible is an attempt by homosexuals “to make their sinful nature ‘right with God.’”

Bob Eschliman has worked as the editor of the Newton Daily News since 2012, and has served as the publisher of the Clarinda Herald-Journal. But he found himself out of a job this past week when he spoke his mind about the Queen James Bible on his personal blog.

“It’s pretty easy to brush off a nonsensical contrived version of the Bible, but that’s not the deceivers’ end goal,” Eschliman wrote. “No, they want all Christendom to abandon their faith. They do that by ‘proselytizing’ to church leaders to change their view on homosexuality.”

“[Jesus] said there would be deceivers. He said those deceivers would cause Christians who remain true to His teachings to become reviled. He said false prophets would follow to deceive even more, and that lawlessness will abound,” he continued. “If you ask me, it sounds like the Gaystapo is well on its way. We must fight back against the enemy.”

However, journalist and commentator Jim Romenesko then picked up on Eschliman’s post and wrote about it in an online article entitled Iowa Newspaper Blasts the ‘Enemy Gaystapo’ and the ‘LGBTQXYZ’ Crowd.

Romenesko outlined in his brief report that he emailed Eschliman and inquired if he could write about homosexuality objectively because of his published views. Eschliman ignored Romenesko’s correspondence, but removed the post from his blog.

The Newton Daily News reported on Tuesday that management learned of Eschliman’s comments last week and placed him on suspension. On Monday, Eschliman was officially fired.
Connect with Christian News

Shaw Media President John Rung, who owns the publication, issued a statement about the matter, asserting that Eschliman’s views could have harmed the newspaper’s reputation.

“Last week, Mr. Eschliman expressed an opinion on his personal blog that in no way reflects the opinion of the Newton Daily News or Shaw Media,” he commented. “While Mr. Eschliman is entitled to his opinion, his public airing of it compromised the reputation of this newspaper and his ability to lead it.”

“Mr. Eschliman has a right to voice his opinion. And we have a right to select an editor who we believe best represents our company and best serves the interests of our readers,” he added.

As previously reported, a similar situation occurred last year when FOX Sports Southwest commentator Craig James lost his job when officials discovered that he had spoken against same-sex “marriage” during a political debate.

“Same-sex marriage, if someone chooses to do that, that’s them,” he stated at the debate, which had been held the year prior. “And God’s going to judge each one of us in this room for our actions. And in that case right there, they’re going to have to answer to the Lord for their actions.”

“We just asked ourselves how Craig’s statements would play in our human resources department,” an unnamed FOX representative told the Dallas Morning News. “He couldn’t say those things here.”

FOX officials have since denied that James was fired because of his outspoken beliefs, but he has filed a complaint with the Texas Workforce Commission alleging religious discrimination.

Golden State Warriors Coach Fired for His Faith?

Controversy is swirling around the Golden State Warriors' decision to fire coach Mark Jackson, who is an outspoken Christian.
   
Jackson was let go, despite having coached the Warriors to 51 wins and a second-consecutive NBA playoff appearance this season.
   
Now Ann Killion, a sports reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, is asking if Jackson's faith had anything to do with his release.
   
"Everything about Jackson was under scrutiny, which includes his very public persona as a religious man," Killion notes in a May 6 San Francisco Chronicle blog.
   
Killion also pointed out that team owner Rick Welts is openly gay, while Jackson pastors a Christian church and embraces traditional values.

Jackson pastors some church in the Bay Area in California - I can't remember the name of it, but I DO remember looking it up last year(when they mentioned during one of the games how he was a pastor at some church).

If memory serves, it is a BIG megachurch that's VERY New Age. And besides - how is someone who has a high stress 24/7 job(head coach of a pro sports team) find time to pastor a church?

Don't be fooled - Jackson is also part of the world system(he called NBA games on ABC/ESPN prior to being hired in Golden State in 2011).

Here's Jackson's church's web site...

http://www.trueloveworshipcenter.com/

To sum it up in a nutshell - seeker-sensitive, Emergent, New Age, fleshly, occult symbolism, etc all rolled up into one package.

As for Jackson's firing itself - from day 1, all of it was nothing but ONE SPECULATION AFTER ANOTHER. One story said he clashed with the team's front office too many times. Another said he didn't get along with his assistants too well(fired one for spying on his players). This. And the list goes on.

But aside from this - typical in this profession - they fire coaches all the time regardless of performance. And then these fired coaches find employment elsewhere almost immediately.

New York radio hosts fired for transgender remarks

Two upstate New York radio hosts have been fired over their on-air comments about Rochester's decision to cover gender reassignment surgery for city employees.

Entercom Rochester on Thursday announced the firings of Kimberly Ray and Barry Beck from WBZA, calling their comments "hateful" and saying they don't represent the station.

Ray referred to someone seeking gender reassignment surgery as "a nut job." Beck equated the issue to having the city pay for breast enhancement or liposuction for a mentally ill woman.

The discussion on their "Breakfast Buzz" show Wednesday had generated 4,000 signatures by Thursday on a removal petition.

Phone numbers for the two were unlisted and they couldn't be reached for comment Thursday.

Beginning Jan. 1, Rochester will cover surgeries and counseling related to gender reassignment.

The Irony of the New Tolerance: It Doesn't Tolerate Christians

When it comes to same-sex "marriage," our culture just like our president, has definitely evolved. After all, it was only in 2008 that a strong majority in California-yes, California-passed Proposition 8 which defined marriage as between one man and one woman.

But when our president changed his mind a few months before the 2012 election, the cultural floodgates opened, particularly in the American workplace. Later that summer, Chick-fil-A faced angry boycotts when CEO Dan Cathy's views and donations in favor of traditional marriage became public knowledge.

The workplace pressure has only continued. Christian bakers and photographers who do not want to participate in what they consider to be a sin have been fined and faced being shut down. Attempts to protect their religious liberty, such as Arizona's State Bill 1062, have been crushed through threats of economic boycotts and media shaming.

More high-profile voices have also faced this smash-mouth, brass-knuckle treatment. Just weeks ago Brendan Eich, the accomplished founder and CEO of search-engine company Mozilla, was forced to resign when he was "outed" for donating all of $1,000 to Proposition 8 eight years ago.

We've all heard what A&E tried to do to Duck Dynasty when Phil Robertson indelicately expressed his disapproval of the "gay lifestyle." And more recently, the Home and Garden TV network canned the Benham brothers, David and Jason, for their supposed "anti-gay" and "anti-choice" beliefs. Apparently one cannot even host a home-improvement show if one does not also parrot the new sexual orthodoxy.

And then there's the case of Miami Dolphins football player Don Jones. When the Dolphins selected gay athlete and cause celebre Michael Sam in the seventh round of the NFL draft, the celebratory kiss with his boyfriend was shown repeatedly on television. Jones reacted by tweeting "OMG" and "Horrible." The Dolphins immediately suspended him and ordered him to undergo sensitivity training. Sensitivity training? Re-education? What is this, Communist China?

In every case, the message to those who disagree with all this sexual "tolerance" is clear: If you want to keep your job, shut up.

Apparently the sexual left cannot tolerate even the slightest dissent. As Kirsten Powers wrote this week in USA Today, "Welcome to the Dark Ages, Part II. We have slipped into an age of un-enlightenment where you fall in line behind the mob or face the consequences."

It amazes me that the media and the homosexual movement, who fought for so hard for equality, apparently don't see the rich irony of putting the economic screws to alternative voices.

As Powers notes, "They claim to be liberal while behaving as anything but. The touchstone of liberalism is tolerance of differing ideas. Yet this mob exists to enforce conformity of thought and to delegitimize any dissent from its sanctioned worldview. Intolerance is its calling card."

Facing such a McCarthy-esque onslaught, what are we Christians to do? Well, let's keep speaking about marriage and God's plan for human flourishing, despite the obvious and growing threats to our livelihoods. We owe it to our neighbors, and to the Lord.

As we do that we'll need to be the Body of Christ, supporting one another in practical ways against the attacks of an increasingly intolerant culture.

But as maddening and frustrating as this growing intolerance is, we need to speak winsomely whenever possible, making the issue about Him, not about us. We may not win in the court of public opinion, but that's okay. As the Apostle Peter said, "Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation."

And then there's the case of Miami Dolphins football player Don Jones. When the Dolphins selected gay athlete and cause celebre Michael Sam in the seventh round of the NFL draft, the celebratory kiss with his boyfriend was shown repeatedly on television. Jones reacted by tweeting "OMG" and "Horrible." The Dolphins immediately suspended him and ordered him to undergo sensitivity training. Sensitivity training? Re-education? What is this, Communist China?
And Michael Sam was only a 7th round draft pick - IOW, he may not even make the team when all is said and done.

With that being said - this is likely CONDITIONING the masses, to start with, to further get them(in particular the sports fan base) to accept sodomy. So ultimately, don't be surprised if months from now, a "star" player like a quarterback or wide receiver "comes out of the closet" - by then, these same non-sodomite sports fan will likely accept them.(after being conditioned for a long, long time)

Pt being that this is probably another crafty way the pro-sodomite lobby is amassing a militant - not only from sodomites, but from among the non-sodomite crowd(like football fans) as well. Personally, I watch these sports game - but at the same time you can't deny sports is entertainment and part of the lusts of the flesh. IOW - don't be surprised if/when more sodomite players start making themselves known, you'll see these same sports fan bases acting defensive when Christians start to expose this wickedness.

Panel: Baker must make cakes for gay weddings
5/30/14

DENVER (AP) — Colorado's Civil Rights Commission on Friday ordered a baker to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding his religious objections to the practice did not trump the state's anti-discrimination statutes.

The unanimous ruling from the seven-member commission upheld an administrative law judge's finding in December that Jack Phillips violated civil rights law when he refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in 2012. The couple sued.

"I can believe anything I want, but if I'm going to do business here, I'd ought to not discriminate against people," Commissioner Raju Jaram said.

Phillips, a devout Christian who owns the Masterpiece Cakeshop in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, said the decision violates his First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise of his religion. "I will stand by my convictions until somebody shuts me down," he told reporters after the ruling.

He added his bakery has been so overwhelmed by supporters eager to buy cookies and brownies that he does not currently make wedding cakes.

The couple who sued Phillips, Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, were pleased that the commission roundly rejected Phillips' arguments. "We're just thrilled by that," Mullins said.

Gay marriage remains illegal in Colorado. Mullins and Craig were married in Massachusetts and wanted a wedding cake for a reception to celebrate their union back home in Colorado.

State law prohibits businesses from refusing to serve customers based on their sexual orientation.

The panel issued its ruling verbally. It ordered Phillips to stop discriminating against gay people and to report quarterly for two years on staff anti-discrimination training and any customers he refuses to serve.

Phillips' attorney said she was considering appealing the ruling to the Colorado Court of Appeals.

Colorado Bakery Opposed To Gay Marriage Gets Out Of The Wedding Cake Business
5/31/14

The Colorado bakery that was ordered to bake a cake for a same-sex ceremony apparently is no longer making cakes for any weddings.

In December, a state judge found that Masterpiece Cakeshop in the Denver area cannot legally refuse service to a customer — in this case, declining to sell a wedding cake — on the basis of sexual orientation. Despite the store owner’s religious objections, his policy violated Colorado’s Anti-Discrimination Act, the judge concluded.

Owner Jack Phillips appealed the judge’s ruling to the seven-member Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which yesterday unanimously upheld the judge’s decision.

Anyone interested in buying a wedding cake from Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Lakewood will be out of luck as a result. “[The ruling] prompted Phillips to decide he would no longer make any wedding cakes. He said he would be fine selling cupcakes for a birthday party for someone who is gay but added, ‘I don’t want to participate in a same-sex wedding.’”

As part of the commission’s decision, the bakery will be required “to change its policy, provide staff training, and report quarterly to confirm that the business does not turn away customers due to sexual orientation.”

Colorado currently does not recognize same-sex marriage.

Phillips, a devout Christian who doesn’t believe in gay marriage, is considering an appeal to a higher court. His attorney, Nicolle Martin, claimed that state officials are violating Phillips’ freedom of religion and of speech under the First Amendment and that “A human rights tribunal has no authority to trump the United States Constitution.” Added Phillips, “I will stand by my convictions until somebody shuts me down.”

The bakery reportedly is making plenty of money selling cakes for other occasions, as well as cupcakes and cookies.

The couple whose experience prompted the case said they were thrilled with the Civil Rights Commission decision, but vowed not to do business with Masterpiece Cakeshop. Said David Mullins, “We’ve already been discriminated against. The whole point of this case … is that the next time a gay couple wanders in and asks for a wedding cake, they won’t have the same experience that we had. They will have a professional experience and will feel they were respected.”

Setting aside your views on same-sex marriage and/or the First Amendment if possible, it’s likely that there are many bakeries in the Denver area. In general, when a consumer is unhappy with store a, the consumer often takes his or her business to store b or store c. As a practical matter, would that approach have been better or worse in this instance, rather than getting the courts involved?



Title: Houston Mayor Forces All to Open Girls Rooms to Men
Post by: Psalm 51:17 on June 02, 2014, 10:31:37 pm
Houston Mayor Forces All to Open Girls Rooms to Men
5/29/14
http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/05/28/Houston-Mayor-Forces-All-to-Open-Girls-Rooms-to-Men

HOUSTON, Texas—Houston’s bathrooms, showers, and dressing facilities will now be open to all, regardless of gender, gender identity, gender expression, or other predilection of gender behavior. By an 11-6 vote of the Houston City Council, Mayor Annise Parker achieved this as the crowning jewel of her tenure as mayor.

Mayor Parker, Houston’s first openly gay mayor, said passing this ordinance was not the most important thing she has done in office, according to an article in the Fairfield Citizen, but it is the “most personally meaningful thing I will ever do as mayor.”

Houston Council Member, At Large Position 3, Michael Kubosh took exception to this. Kubosh told KPRC TV, "It's going to criminalize people that have been found in violation in the ordinance and the fine could be between $500 to $5,000."

In an interview with Breitbart Texas, Kubosh said, “The system is flawed and has little, if any, transparency. I did everything I could do to get the ordinance delayed or defeated, but the mayor controlled the whole process.” Kubosh said he voted against the ordinance along with District A Council Member Brenda Stardig, District D Council Member Dwight Boykins, District E Council Member Dave Martin, District G Council Member Oliver Pennington and At Large Position 5 Council Member Jack Christi.

Stephen Costello, the At Large Position 1 Council Member who supported Mayor Parker on the Proposition 1 “Rain Tax” ordinance, joined ten other council members in standing beside Mayor Parker.

The ordinance was strongly opposed by many black pastors, members of the Houston Area Pastors Council. 150 pastors from the conservative group representing a diverse coalition, ethnically and denominationally, angrily walked out of the council meeting today after two prominent African American pastors who represented the group were snubbed by the council body. According to a press release obtained by Breitbart Texas, Council Member Boykins asked to have two black pastors, Willie Davis and Max Miller, to be allowed to be moved up in the speakers list and speak out against the ordinance.  It is a common practice by council members and one that is rarely opposed by other members.

In fact, Council Member Mike Laster had just previously been allowed the same courtesy to be extended to move up four pro-GLBT speakers in the order to speak before eight members plus Mayor Parker voted against Boykin’s request. One of the black pastors called it the equivalent of being “sent to the back of the bus.” After the public snubbing of the two black pastors by council, the 150 plus pastors present walked out of the meeting in protest. Immediately after this the council allowed another pro-GLBT speaker to be moved up. Council Member Bradford was the member who voiced the objection to Boykins’ request and called for the vote. Standard protocol is usually to allow the courtesy by unanimous consent.

“It was one of the most flagrantly disrespectful actions taken by an elected body toward its own constituency I have witnessed in over thirty years of involvement,” said Rev. Dave Welch on behalf of the pastors’ coalition involving eight major denominational and inter-denominational pastor networks.

Rev. Welch said:

    It was clear that enough council members had decided to vote with Annise Parker’s personal agenda over the clear will of the people and basic decency in this act of thumbing their nose at respected Black clergy who represented all of us. Our only way of showing that we understood what had happened and to respond effectively was to vote with our legs.

Despite this, Council Member Boykin was the only black council member to stand with the black pastors and vote against the ordinance. District B Council Member Jerry Davis and At Large Position 4 Council Member C.O. Bradford voted in favor of the ordinance.

Of the three council members who are presumed to be considering running to replace Parker as mayor when her final term expires, Kubosh and Pennington voted no and Costello voted with Mayor Parker as a yes vote.

“We are very enthused by the massive coming together of pastors and churches in every corner of Houston,” Rev. Welch concluded. “However, we recognize that some council members will choose today to reject good government, common decency, protecting our women and children and ultimately the clear will of over 80% of Houston citizens by voting with Mayor Parker. We were prepared for that contingency and are ready to roll out a referendum to let the people vote. They chose to be against us, not the other way around.  Once we correct this grievous act through the ballot this Fall, we will then remind those members that patronizing a tiny interest group and outgoing mayor instead of serving the people leads to a short political career.”

Breitbart Texas previously reported about prior council meetings about the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). Lana Shadwick wrote in detail about previous testimony before the city council and about the community protest held in regards to defeating the ordinance. Council Member Kubosh sat down for an exclusive interview on the topic with this writer. Because of the controversy surrounding this ordinance and the manner in which Mayor Parker handled the process, many are considering a recall action against the Mayor and/or some supporting council members.

Boston pride parade features anti-Catholic group

A traditional values group is taking aim at corporate sponsors of Saturday's homosexual "pride" parade in Boston.

The grand marshal of this year's parade is the anti-Catholic group called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Brian Camenker of MassResistance is familiar with the group.

"The group is made up of homosexual men who dress up in these gaudy costumes as Catholic nuns and they give themselves obscene names, which I won't repeat," he says. "And they do obscene things, mostly with homosexual themes to them, regarding Jesus and other Catholic imagery and Christian imagery."

Major politicians, including Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, will be in the parade.

"And major corporations are a part of this," Camenker continues. "Bank of America and Blue Cross-Blue Shield, Google, Johnson & Johnson, Macy's, Staples, and others." Walmart, Marriott, and Starbucks are also listed as sponsors.
http://www.bostonpride.org/partners/

Camenker says people who oppose the homosexual lifestyle will stay home from the parade as per usual, but what they can do is contact the sponsors and let them know you don't appreciate it.

Poll: No gay marriage ‘revolt’ coming
6/18/14

The Human Rights Campaign is welcoming the National Organization for Marriage to Washington Thursday with a poll conducted by Mitt Romney’s former data director showing just how far the majority of Americans are now from their anti-gay marriage views.

The poll was conducted to coincide with NOM’s rally near the Capitol and march to the Supreme Court, followed by a gala at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel.

Conducted by Alex Lundry through his firm TargetPoint Consulting and obtained by POLITICO, it singled out the views of one person, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, who predicted in 2012 — before Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act were struck down — that the Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage would cause “a revolution. You will see Americans saying, ‘You know what? Enough of this.’ It could explode and just break this nation apart."

Conducting his poll at the beginning of June, Lundry didn’t find much support for that kind of revolt when the quote was read to respondents, with 59 percent overall disagreeing with Perkins. Of people who said they were opposed to gay marriage, 58 percent said they wouldn’t do anything, despite disagreeing and being disappointed in the decision.

“Only one directly mentions the word ‘revolution,’ five voters threaten to leave the country, and a scant fifteen people (3% of opponents) mention any form of protest,” reads a prepared polling memo. “Clearly, there is no real threat of widespread calamity should we extend the freedom to marry to gays and lesbians.”


Support for gay marriage is at 56 percent, with 37 percent opposed, squaring with public polls. Asked to rate the degree of their support, 44 percent said they “strongly” support legalization, with only 28 percent opposed.

Trying for a different measure, the poll also asked people to ask how much money they’d be willing to put toward the effort of either stopping or increasing legalization. On average, supporters said they’d be willing to pay $8,500 whereas opponents would only pay $2,600.

Those feelings are reflected in some of the other answers to the survey: 74 percent of people said their lives wouldn’t change with legalized gay marriage, and among those who did foresee a change, many rated it as one that would be for the better.

The NOM rally and the release of the HRC poll Thursday come as LGBT advocates head to the White House for a meeting about President Barack Obama’s decision to sign a new executive order banning LGBT workplace discrimination and a Justice Department report about the administration’s efforts to broadly interpret last year’s Windsor decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act is scheduled for release.

9 Things You Should Know About Transgenderism
6/17/14

Transgenderism has been a frequently discussed topic over the past few weeks. On May 30, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services review board ruled that Medicare can pay for the "reassignment" surgery sought by the transgendered. A few days later Time magazine's cover story on the "transgender tipping point" declared the social movement is "poised to challenge deeply held cultural beliefs." And last week the Southern Baptist Convention, America's largest Protestant denomination, overwhelmingly passed a resolution titled “On Transgender Identity.” Since the topic will be coming up for some time to come, here are nine things you should know about transgenderism.

1. Transgenderism is an umbrella term for the state or condition of identifying or expressing a gender identity that does not match a person's physical/genetic sex. Transgender is independent of sexual orientation, and those who self-identify as transgender may consider themselves to be heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, or asexual. Approximately 700,000 individuals in the U.S. identify as transgender.

2. Transgenderism differs from intersex, a variation in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, or genitals that do not allow an individual to be distinctly identified as male or female. Intersex is a physical condition while transgender is a psychological condition. The vast majority of people with intersex conditions identify as male or female rather than transgender or transsexual. (The term "hermaphrodite" is now considered outdated, inaccurate, and offensive as a reference to people who are intersex.)

3. The terms transgender, transsexual, and transvestite are not synonymous. Transsexual is a narrower term used to refer to people who identify as the opposite of their birth gender designation, regardless of whether they have undergone or intend to undergo hormone replacement therapy and/or sex reassignment surgery. A transvestite is a person who cross-dresses, or dresses in clothes of the opposite sex, though they may not identify with, or want to be the opposite gender. All transexuals are transgender, but transvestites do not necessarily fall into either of the other categories.

4. The LGBTQIA community considers gender to be a trait that exists along a continuum. Transgenders can thus be bigender (move between feminine and masculine gender-typed behavior depending on context), trigender (shifting between male, female, and a third gender), pangender (all genders at once), genderqueer (a catchall for people who consider themselves any of the subsets of transgender, such as genderless, pangender, etc.).

5. The term cisgender is used to refer to individuals who have a match between the gender they were assigned at birth, their bodies, and their personal identity. Cisgender is often used within the LGBTQIA community to refer to people who are not transgender.

6. In the 1960s Johns Hopkins University became the first American medical center to offer "sex-reassignment surgery." But they later stopped performing the procedure after a study on transgendered people in the 1970s. The study compared the outcomes of transgendered people who had the surgery with the outcomes of those who did not. Most of the surgically treated patients described themselves as "satisfied" by the results, but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn't have the surgery. As Dr. McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, explains, "at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a "satisfied" but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs."

7. When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London's Portman Clinic, 70-80 percent of them spontaneously lost those feelings. Some 25 percent did have persisting feelings, notes Dr. McHugh, but what differentiates those individuals remains to be discerned. Despite such studies several states—including California, New Jersey and Massachusetts—have passed laws barring psychiatrists, even with parental permission, from striving to restore natural gender feelings to a transgender minor.

8. A 2011 study at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden followed 324 people who had sex-reassignment surgery (191 male-to-females, 133 female-to-males) from 1973 to 2003. The overall rate of death was higher than expected, with suicide being the leading cause. Those who had the sex-change surgery were almost 20 times more likely to take their own lives than the non-transgender population. They were also more likely to seek in-house treatment for psychiatric conditions.

9. At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered, says McHugh. "'Sex change' is biologically impossible," he adds. "People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder."

Gay Men and the Presidents Who Loved Them

Presidents have long had gay advisers. But it’s only recently that the leader of the free world has felt secure enough to let it be known that he’s friends with friends of Dorothy.


Sometimes the significance of an item in the news can sometimes be measured by how little attention it attracts. To see how far the cause of gay rights has progressed in such a remarkably short period of time, consider the following sentence buried in an otherwise banal Associated Press report about Barack and Michelle Obama’s vacation plans over the recent Father’s Day Weekend in Rancho Mirage, California. “They are staying with White House decorator Michael Smith and his partner, U.S. Ambassador to Spain James Costos, at their vacation home.”

Not long ago, the notion of the First Couple spending a long weekend with a gay one, let alone advertising it to the press, would have presented the White House Chief of Staff with a PR headache. Would the public read too much into it? Would it signal support for same-sex marriage? How will it play in Peoria? Now, nobody bats an eye.

American presidents have long had gay friends and advisers, many of whom have occupied positions not so stereotypically swish as White House decorator. One could conceivably start the list with William King, who served as vice president to Franklin Pierce, and is speculated by some historians to have been the lover of President James Buchanan. More often than not, however, their homosexuality was a closely guarded secret, revealed unintentionally or as a result of embarrassing scandal. It is only very recently that the leader of the free world has felt secure enough to let it be known that he’s friends with friends of Dorothy.

Washington has long attracted a disproportionate number of gay people, a phenomenon that really took off with the city’s massive expansion as the seat of federal bureaucracy during World War II. (The Advocate magazine recently lauded Washington as the most gay-friendly city in the country and The New York Times, utilizing census data, has deemed it the “gayest place in America.”) Government service often requires long hours away from home and unquestioning loyalty to one’s boss, job requirements that gay men in particular, generally free from the constraints of traditional family life, have been adept at filling. Here is a (by no means exhaustive) list of presidents and some of their gay consiglieres:

Dwight Eisenhower and Arthur Vandenberg Jr.

Arthur Vandenberg Jr., the son of a Michigan senator, was preparing to start a senior job in the administration of incoming President Dwight Eisenhower when the FBI informed him that his future as a White House staffer was not to be. J. Edgar Hoover, the agency’s director, had come into possession of compromising material about Vandenberg, information he was keeping as part of the Sex Deviates Program that would ruin the careers of thousands of gay men and women (as well as those whose homosexuality was merely presumed) over the course of nearly 25 years. “Arthur wasn’t a fighter,” wrote Dudley Clendinen, Vandenberg’s godson. “He folded. He checked into a hospital, complaining of stomach problems, and resigned the appointment for ‘health reasons’ three months after Eisenhower’s inauguration.”

In a May, 1953 letter to Vandenberg, Eisenhower wrote, “I want to make the personal request that whenever you may come to this city you make it a habit to give my office a ring, so that we may arrange at least a short meeting.” Three years later, the scandal magazine Confidential, likely working in collusion with the FBI, published an expose of Vandenberg’s alleged gay trysts. Despite all his work on Eisenhower’s successful presidential campaign, Vandenberg was relegated to a footnote in Eisenhower’s memoir.

John F. Kennedy and Lem Billings and Joe Alsop

From his schoolboy days at the tony New England prep school Choate until his death by an assassin’s bullet 30 years later in Dallas, John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s best friend was Kirk LeMoyne Billings, also known as “Lem.” According to Jack and Lem, a 2008 book about their friendship, Billings made a pass at the future president while the two were students. “I’m not that kind of boy,” Kennedy told him. Most men in that place and time—it was the early 1930s—would have ended the relationship immediately. But the two remained close, traveling through Europe after graduating from high school (Joe Kennedy Sr. referred to Billings as “a second son.”) Billings worked on Kennedy’s successful 1960 presidential campaign, but declined prestigious job offers including leadership of the newly created Peace Corps. Nonetheless, he was such a frequent visitor to the White House during the Kennedy administration that he had his own room.

Though Billings was discreet about his sexual orientation, it was well known throughout Washington. Kennedy’s unconcern about Billings crashing 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue most weekends might have been due to the fact that, as an infamous lothario himself, he didn’t worry that close friendship with a gay man would generate suspicions of homosexuality.

JFK’s other gay friend was one of the most famous men in Washington at the time, but also one of its most closeted. Joseph Alsop was a distant cousin of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and, with his brother Stewart, penned a thrice-weekly column, “Matter of Fact,” which appeared in some 200 newspapers across the country. A virulent anti-communist and ardent supporter of the Vietnam War, Alsop was the most prominent journalist to push the supposed “missile gap” between the Soviet Union and America, a term skillfully used by Kennedy to paint the incumbent Eisenhower administration and its vice president, presidential contender Richard Nixon, as soft on communism. Alsop’s exterior toughness against the Soviets, which masked a deep secret, has led some historians to conclude that he was compensating for his hidden homosexuality. “During his early career as a congressman, Jack had been a guest at a number of Alsop’s dinner parties, until his flippant remark that there never seemed to be any pretty girls in attendance irritated Alsop, who cut off further invitations,” writes Barbara Lemming, author of a biography of Jackie Kennedy.

On a 1957 trip to Moscow, Alsop was entrapped by a handsome young KGB spy and the incident was caught on camera. Confronted with the evidence, Alsop refused to become a Soviet spy, and immediately told his editors and the CIA about what had happened. Such was the Washington rumor mill at the time and the nature of the capital “E” Establishment, that many powerful people in the capital, including Kennedy, knew about Alsop’s secret but refused to divulge it. When, in 1970, after a particularly bruising series of anti-Soviet columns, the Russians sent envelopes containing photos of the 1957 encounter to Washington journalists—including two of Alsop’s many nemeses—none of the recipients publicized the information. Columnist Art Buchwald, then engaged in a long-running feud with Alsop, tore the photos up.

Lyndon B. Johnson and Walter Jenkins

Decades before Idaho Senator Larry Craig’s political career would end in shame over a foot-tapping scandal in an airport restroom, there was the sad case of Walter Jenkins. Lyndon B. Johnson once referred to Jenkins as “my Vice President in Charge of Everything.” Jenkins joined Johnson’s employ at the age of 21 when the latter was a congressman, and served alongside him for his entire adult life. On October 7, 1964, Jenkins attended a Newsweek magazine party celebrating the opening of its bureau in Washington, D.C. Tipsy, he walked to the YMCA near the White House.

The bathroom, a notorious cruising scene at the time, was under surveillance by D.C. police, who arrested Jenkins and his sex partner almost immediately after the two entered a toilet stall. Hoping the matter would go away (he had been arrested, in the same bathroom, in 1959), Jenkins pleaded guilty to the charge of lewd conduct and didn’t even hire a lawyer. But the story inevitably broke in the press. “There can be no place on the White House staff or in the upper echelons of government for a person of markedly deviant behavior,” remarked the now-stridently pro-gay New York Times editorial board. Jenkins promptly resigned and checked into a hospital for “exhaustion.”

Richard Nixon and… Nobody

Thanks to recently released transcripts of Richard Nixon’s White House conversations, we know for sure what had been long-suspected: that in addition to blacks, Jews and other minority groups, Nixon wasn’t particularly fond of gays. Discussing the popular television program All in the Family, Nixon was incredulous at a positive portrayal of gay characters. “They were glorifying homosexuality!” he exclaimed in a 1971 conversation with advisers John Ehrlichman and Bob Haldeman. “You ever see what happened, you know what happened to the Greeks? Homosexuality destroyed them. Aristotle was a homo. So was Socrates.” After Ehrlichman, ever the obsequious minion, egged on his boss by remarking that the Greek philosopher “never had the influence that television has,” the pseudo-historian president replies indignantly that, “The last six Roman emperors were fags. You see, homosexuality, immorality in general, these are the enemies of strong societies. That’s why the communists and the left-wingers are pushing it. They’re trying to destroy us.”

With these views, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Nixon did not have any known, openly gay friends or advisers. But a 2011 book speculates that Nixon may have had a gay affair. In Nixon’s Darkest Secrets: The Inside Story of America’s Most Troubled President, author Don Fulsom speculates that Nixon had a relationship of a “possibly homosexual nature” with his best friend, Charles “Bebe” Rebozo. Fulsom proffered little evidence to buttress his claim; a former Time magazine reporter who claimed to have seen the men holding hands under a dinner table, another journalist who saw Nixon put his arm around Rebozo “the way you’d cuddle your senior prom date.” Mark Feldstein, author of another book about Nixon and a journalism professor at the University of Maryland, attributed this most improbable of historical outings as the result of gossip refracted through the controversies of our cultural moment, coming as it did amidst a time when “homosexuality has come out of the closet and same-sex marriage has become a prominent part of the legislative agenda in many places.”

Gerald Ford and Oliver Sipple

Gerald Ford and his gay best friend sealed their bond on September 22, 1975. On that day, five-time divorcee Sarah Jane Moore pulled a gun on the president as he exited the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco (it was a bad month for Ford, just three weeks earlier, another disturbed woman, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, tried to assassinate him in San Francisco, but a Secret Service Agent forced the gun from her hand). Had Oliver Sipple not grabbed Moore’s hand as she fired, directing the bullet away from the president, Ford likely would have been gravely injured, if not killed.

Sipple’s homosexuality was revealed by San Francisco Chronicle columnist Herb Caen, who had heard the ex-Marine was a friend of Harvey Milk, an openly gay man then running for a seat on the city’s Board of Supervisors. In the Mayor of Castro Street, his biography of Milk, author Randy Shilts reported that that the budding politician thought the world should know of Sipple’s sexual orientation so that “for once we can show that gays can do heroic things.”

That a gay man would save a president’s life was ironic. Just three years earlier, newspaper columnist Jack Anderson revealed that the Secret Service had compiled a list of 400 organizations that it monitored “to prevent political assassinations.” On the list: the Gay Liberation Front.


Ronald Reagan and Rock Hudson

Ronald and Nancy Reagan became friends with many gay people during their years in Hollywood. One of the most prominent was Rock Hudson, the matinee idol whose public image as a heartthrob disguised his homosexuality. In 1984, Hudson was diagnosed with HIV, a fact that he would not disclose until over a year later. This was at a time when the disease had just begun to ravage the gay community and many were criticizing the Reagan administration for its slow response to the epidemic. The following July, Hudson traveled to Paris for medical treatment and announced, through a publicist, that he had AIDS.

While President Reagan made no official statement about his friend’s illness (his first public reference to the disease was in September 1985, over two years after its existence had been reported on by The New York Times), he called Hudson at the hospital in Paris and his wife phoned then-French President Francois Mitterand to guarantee that her friend was receiving top-notch treatment. A 2003 television docudrama initially planned to air on CBS, The Reagans, portrayed Reagan as a virulent homophobe who tells Nancy, in a conversation about AIDS patients, “They that live in sin shall die in sin.” When the script leaked, Hudson’s former lover Marc Christian wrote an open letter to CBS television President Les Moonves, explaining, “The notion that President Reagan was a homophobe strikes me as silly beyond belief… The point is Reagan could have ignored Rock’s illness and didn’t.”

George H.W. Bush: First President to serve as witness to same-sex marriage

George H.W. Bush effectively became the fourth sitting or former U.S. President to endorse gay marriage (following presidents Carter, Clinton and Obama) when, with his wife, Barbara, he served as an official witness at the wedding of Bonnie Clement and Helen Thorgalsen. (This leaves his son, George W. Bush, as the only living ex-president not to support gay marriage.) His office tried to downplay any attempt at deciphering a political message from the event, with a representative issuing a statement that the Bushes “were private citizens attending a private ceremony for two friends.” The lesbian pair owns a general goods store in Kennebunkport, Maine, where the Bush family has long maintained a vacation residence.

Bill Clinton and David Mixner

David Mixner met Bill Clinton in 1969 when the two men were young activists in the anti-war and civil rights movements, and was immediately entranced. “His extraordinary talent for ‘connecting’ was irresistible,” Mixner wrote in his memoir, Stranger Among Friends. From that moment, Mixner dedicated himself to Clinton’s political career, working on his every election from a 1974 congressional race to his 1992 presidential victory. But Mixner would come to feel betrayal almost immediately once Clinton passed the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” regulation banning openly gay people serving in the military, after having specifically promised to lift such restrictions. Mixner protested the law and was arrested outside the White House. The two later made amends, but Mixner supported Barack Obama over Clinton’s wife, Hillary, in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.

George W. Bush and Charles Francis

Charles Francis came out to his friend, then-Texas Governor George W. Bush, in a letter. His brother had served as Bush’s campaign chairman and Francis figured he could leverage his personal connection to the governor to help further the cause of gay rights among Republicans. “The day he got the letter, he called me,” Francis told Out magazine in 2001. “Our friendship couldn’t be stronger.” Francis famously organized a meeting for Bush with a group of gay Republicans (dubbed “The Austin 12”) during the 2000 presidential campaign, from which Bush emerged saying he had become “a better person.” Francis later founded the Republican Unity Coalition, a group of gay and straight Republicans that claimed Mary Cheney and former Wyoming Senator Alan Simpson as members.

But, like Mixner, Francis’s friendship with a president would be tested once politics entered the fray. In 2004, Bush endorsed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage—leading many of the prominent gay Republicans who met with him four years earlier to renounce their support for his re-election. “The stampede you hear will be 1 million gay voters who voted for President Bush—gone, and their families gone, and their friends gone,” an indignant Francis told the San Francisco Chronicle that year. Francis dropped his GOP registration and has since reconstituted the Washington Mattachine Society, one of the country’s first gay-rights organizations, dedicated to “archive activism” that exposes, through official documentation, the federal government’s historic persecution of gay people.

Biden: Gay rights take precedence over culture
6/24/14

WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking to mobilize a global front against anti-gay violence and discrimination, Vice President Joe Biden declared Tuesday that protecting gay rights is a defining mark of a civilized nation and must trump national cultures and social traditions.

Biden told a gathering of U.S. and international gay rights advocates that President Barack Obama has directed that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women around the world

"I don't care what your culture is," Biden told about 100 guests at the Naval Observatory's vice presidential mansion. "Inhumanity is inhumanity is inhumanity. Prejudice is prejudice is prejudice."

With anti-gay laws taking root in nearly 80 countries, Biden and other top White House officials met with religious, human rights and HIV health care advocates in a forum dedicated to promoting gay rights internationally.

Biden, who has emerged as a leading gay rights advocate within the Obama administration ever since he got ahead of Obama in declaring his support for gay marriage, said that across U.S government agencies officials have been instructed to make the promotion of gay rights abroad a priority.

Where countries fail to move toward protections of LGBT people, he warned, "there is a price to pay for being inhumane." Among those at the evening reception were leading gay rights activists and the ambassadors from Britain, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland.

Earlier Tuesday, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice cast the protection of gays from global discrimination, abuse and even death as one of the most challenging international human rights issue facing the United States. Biden called gay rights "the civil rights issue of our day."

"To achieve lasting global change, we need everyone's shoulder at the wheel," she said. "With more voices to enrich and amplify the message — the message that gay rights are straight-up human rights — we can open more minds."

Rice cautioned that the effort is difficult because laws limiting gay rights in some countries enjoy strong popular support. But she said cultural differences do not excuse human rights violations.

"Governments are responsible for protecting the rights of all citizens, and it is incumbent upon the state, and on each of us, to foster tolerance and to reverse the tide of discrimination," Rice said.

Last week, the U.S. imposed visa bans on Ugandan officials who are involved in corruption and are violating the rights of gay people and others. Uganda passed a law in February that strengthened criminal penalties for gay sex and made life sentences possible for those convicted of breaking the law.

During his trip to Africa last year, Obama, while in Senegal, urged African leaders to extend equal rights to gays and lesbians. Senegal's president, however, pushed back, saying his country "still isn't ready" to decriminalize homosexuality. Seven countries have laws imposing death sentences for gay sex and Brunei is on track to becoming the eighth one.

Tuesday's forum was the latest administrative attempt by Obama to promote gay and lesbian rights both in the United States and abroad. Obama successfully pushed to repeal the ban on gays serving openly in the military and his administration stopped defending the Defense of Marriage Act years before the Supreme Court took it up.

Earlier this month, Obama announced he will sign an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against employees based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Last week, it also granted new benefits to same-sex couples, including those who live in states where gay marriage is against the law.

Oops! Pat Sajak Asks Gay 'Wheel Of Fortune' Contestant About Woman He's Going To Marry

This time it wasn't a contestant committing a big flub on "Wheel of Fortune." Host Pat Sajak did the honors instead.

While introducing player T.K. Klotz during an episode that aired Thursday, the host noted that Klotz was engaged. "Some woman has agreed to marry you," he said to the contestant. "Some gentleman," Klotz corrected.

As you can see in the clip above, things got a little awkward, but Sajak handled the gaffe with aplomb. A commenter who appeared to be Klotz told Deadspin that Sajak apologized during the commercial break.

Some reaction on Facebook wasn't as forgiving of Sajak. "He can't be that dumb," one user wrote.

The mistake took on uncomfortable context. In April, Sajak raised eyebrows by sending out a sarcastic tweet proclaiming his heterosexuality.

"It might be seen as just a likely ribbing at the recent spate of celebrity outings, except that Sajak is a serious right-winger" who has donated to Republican candidates, NewNowNext wrote.

Newly released Nixon tapes reveal nuanced beliefs on gays
Gay men ‘born that way’ and ‘girls don’t swear’

7/11/14

Despite President Richard Nixon's conservative poltical stance, it seems he had a relatively progressive opinion of gays and limited exposure to girls who curse.

On Thursday, Vanity Fair released excerpts from 3,700 hours of audio recordings made during Nixon’s first term in the White House. While past Nixon recordings have focused on Watergate and his eventual resignation, these excerpts reveal a president musing on a number of topics.

The new recordings are just the latest insight into the fractured presidency and life of a man who continues to capture the public’s attention nearly 40 years after he left the White House and 20 years since his death.

Nixon’s thoughts on whether homosexuality is a genetic or learned behavior are surprisingly liberal considering both that time in history and that Nixon had expressed offensive views on race, gender and culture in other recordings.

Of course, the excerpts also contain unusual and unsubstantiated theories on gays from Nixon, including his apparent belief that groups such as the Boy Scouts, the YMCA and teachers “bring them in that direction.”

Here’s Nixon’s full exchange on “the gay thing” with national security adviser Henry Kissinger and chief of staff H.R. Haldeman:

    Nixon: Let me say something before we get off the gay thing. I don’t want my views misunderstood. I am the most tolerant person on that of anybody in this shop. They have a problem. They’re born that way. You know that. That’s all. I think they are. Anyway, my point is, though, when I say they’re born that way, the tendency is there. [But] my point is that Boy Scout leaders, YMCA leaders, and others bring them in that direction, and teachers. And if you look over the history of societies, you will find, of course, that some of the highly intelligent people ... Oscar Wilde, Aristotle, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera, were all homosexuals. Nero, of course, was, in a public way, in with a boy in Rome.

    Haldeman: There’s a whole bunch of Roman emperors...

    Nixon: But the point is, look at that, once a society moves in that direction, the vitality goes out of that society. Now, isn’t that right, Henry?

    Kissinger: Well—

    Nixon: Do you see any other change, anywhere where it doesn’t fit?

    Kissinger: That’s certainly been the case in antiquity. The Romans were notorious—

    Haldeman: The Greeks.

    Kissinger: —homosexuals. . . .

    Nixon: The Greeks. And they had plenty of it. ... By God, I am not going to have a situation where we pass along a law indicating, “Well, now, kids, just go out and be gay.” They can do it. Just leave them alone. That’s a lifestyle I don't want to touch.

The new recordings are being released just two years after an acclaimed documentary, “Our Nixon,” was released, highlighting more than 500 hours of previously unseen Super 8 camera footage captured by Nixon aides.

Vanity Fair contributing editor Douglas Brinkley and historian Luke A. Nichter are compiling the audiotapes, which have been cleaned up and enhanced, into a new book that provides further insight into the strange and often provocative musings captured on tape during Nixon’s abbreviated presidency.

In a later exchange recorded in April 1971, Nixon appears to register some surprise when told that women swear just like their male counterparts:

    Nixon: Why is it that the girls don’t swear? Because a man, when he swears, people can’t tolerate a girl who is a—

    Haldeman: Girls do swear.

    Nixon: Huh?

    Haldeman: They do now.

Nixon: Oh, they do now? But, nevertheless, it removes something from them. They don’t even realize it. A man drunk, and a man who swears, people will tolerate and say that’s a sign of masculinity or some other damn thing. We all do it. We all swear. But you show me a girl that swears and I’ll show you an awful unattractive person. ... I mean, all femininity is gone. And none of the smart girls do swear, incidentally.

Editor Fired for Criticizing ‘Queen James Bible’ on Personal Blog Files Federal Complaint

A newspaper editor who was fired earlier this year for opining on his personal blog that the Queen James Bible is an attempt by homosexuals “to make their sinful nature ‘right with God’” has filed a complaint with the federal government.

As previously reported, Bob Eschliman has worked as the editor of the Newton Daily News since 2012, and has served as the publisher of the Clarinda Herald-Journal. But he found himself out of a job this past May when he spoke his mind about the Queen James Bible on his personal blog.

“It’s pretty easy to brush off a nonsensical contrived version of the Bible, but that’s not the deceivers’ end goal,” Eschliman wrote. “No, they want all Christendom to abandon their faith. They do that by ‘proselytizing’ to church leaders to change their view on homosexuality.”

“[Jesus] said there would be deceivers. He said those deceivers would cause Christians who remain true to His teachings to become reviled. He said false prophets would follow to deceive even more, and that lawlessness will abound,” he continued. “If you ask me, it sounds like the Gaystapo is well on its way. We must fight back against the enemy.”

However, journalist and commentator Jim Romenesko then picked up on Eschliman’s post and wrote about it in an online article entitled Iowa Newspaper Blasts the ‘Enemy Gaystapo’ and the ‘LGBTQXYZ’ Crowd.

Romenesko outlined in his brief report that he emailed Eschliman and inquired if he could report about homosexuality objectively because of his published views. Eschliman ignored Romenesko’s correspondence, but removed the post from his blog.

The Newton Daily News then reported shortly thereafter that management had learned of Eschliman’s comments and placed him on suspension. Days later, Eschliman was officially fired.

Shaw Media President John Rung, who owns the publication, issued a statement about the matter, asserting that Eschliman’s views could have harmed the newspaper’s reputation.

“Last week, Mr. Eschliman expressed an opinion on his personal blog that in no way reflects the opinion of the Newton Daily News or Shaw Media,” he commented. “While Mr. Eschliman is entitled to his opinion, his public airing of it compromised the reputation of this newspaper and his ability to lead it.”

“Mr. Eschliman has a right to voice his opinion. And we have a right to select an editor who we believe best represents our company and best serves the interests of our readers,” he added.

But now, Eschliman has filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, asserting that he was wrongfully discriminated against because of his Christian beliefs.

“To be fired for—basically, on my own time—expressing my personal and deeply-held religious views is shocking,” he told reporters during a press conference on Wednesday.

He was joined by Jeremy Dys of The Liberty Institute, a Christian legal organization in Plano, Texas, as well as former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker, who are providing legal assistance to Eschliman.

“No one should be fired for simply expressing his religious beliefs,” Whitaker stated. “In America, it is against the law to fire an employee for expressing a religious belief in public. This kind of religious intolerance by an employer has no place in today’s welcoming workforce.”

LGBT Activists Issue Death Threats To Children Of Oklahoma State Senator
For introducing a religious liberties bill for private business owners


Oklahoma State Senator Joseph Silk has stirred up a hornet's nest inside the LGBT community after introducing a bill (SB440) in his home state that would ensure business owners to retain the right to serve whomever they please. That is not sitting well for some in the homosexual community, who are now sending death threats to the state senator and his family.

In an interview with TruthRevolt, Silk said that since he was quoted in The New York Times Thursday saying homosexuals "don't have a right to be served in every single store," he has received hundreds of angry e-mails and phone calls from LGBT activists who believe he is sanctioning discrimination. "A couple of them have been death threats against me and my children," Silk said.

But what the NYT failed to do was include the entirety of Silk's statement -- the part where he said he also doesn't have a right to be served in every store. Silk clarified what he told the paper in a statement at his campaign website:

    Yes I did say that homosexuals do not have the right to be served in every store, just as I do not believe that I, my family, or anyone else have the right to be served in every private business.

The threats even targeted a private cabin rental business Silk manages for his father. Silk said that LGBT activists were alerted in order to flood the business with angry messages promising boycotts. But as Silk explained to TR, the business has served homosexual customers before and will continue to do so in the future.

"This bill is about protecting the rights of private business owners to make their own decisions for their business and to ensure their religious beliefs are protected," Silk said. "Business owners should not be forced to serve someone if it violates their beliefs," he added.

Silk indicated that SB 440 is not unique and is based on a similar religious liberties law in nearby Kansas. So far, he said, the bill has yet to be heard in committee and has been dead for weeks. Silk explained that he went as far as reaching out to the executive director of the LGBT group Freedom Oklahoma and invited him into the office while the bill was being written as a show of transparency.

"I had Troy Stevenson to my office to try and let him know this bill was not an attack on the LGBT movement, but rather to protect people's individual religious liberties and right to live that out," Silk said.

Silk said Stevenson expressed his problem with the bill saying that a private business owner does not have the right to refuse services because of religious convictions and the meeting ended. Silk strongly suspects that Stevenson was responsible for leaking the cabin business information shortly after they met in order to encourage activists to send harassing messages. Silk said he is "very certain" it was Stevenson because "he has family ties to that community in our same industry [and] that is the only way people could know that."

The backlash unleashed on Silk and his family is largely based on the missing half of his statement, courtesy of the narrative designed by the NYT. But what the media is failing to  report -- they're too busy mocking -- is the violent threats and vitriolic language employed by LGBT activists. Silk made it clear in the interview that as a person with homosexual friends, he isn't painting his accusations broadly, but pinpointing those radical activists who will stop at nothing short of shutting down anyone who disagrees with homosexuality.

"This incident and the way it exploded into death threats should wake people up to the fact that the LGBT activist are the single most significant threat to religious and personal rights in the United States," Silk said. "They do not want people to have the right to live out their religious conviction if those convictions do not agree with their behavior."

He continued:

    The LGBT activists have shown time and time again that they want to persecute, trample on people's rights, and take people's businesses if for any reason their behavior and choices are not agreed with. My family and I, like many others before, are testimonies to their hate, intolerance, and forceful nature of this movement. The sad thing is, no one is attacking their behavior. They have the right to be gay…but if you disagree with them, they will do everything in their power to ruin your life.

Arkansas follows Indiana into 'religious freedom' fight (+video)

From the NCAA to Wal-Mart and Apple, businesses around the country are objecting to Indiana’s new 'religious freedom' law, which critics say is discriminatory. Arkansas is about to pass a similar law.

Indiana was the focus of harsh news this week when Gov. Mike Pence signed a “religious freedom” act and much of the business and political world erupted in criticism.

Those opposed to the law, which allows businesses to refuse service to potential customers and clients on religious grounds, say it’s a clear shot at the LGBT community – in particular those advocating or wanting to participate in same-sex marriage.

Now, Arkansas is beginning to experience the same response. The state senate passed a similar bill, which already had been passed by the state house of representatives.  (Both chambers are Republican-controlled.) Governor Asa Hutchinson (R) says he’ll sign the law, which declares that "governments should not substantially burden the free exercise of religion without compelling justification."
Recommended: How much do you know about gay rights in America? Take the quiz!

Two major US companies, retailer Wal-Mart (which has its home office in Bentonville, Ark.) and Apple have made it clear where they stand.
 
 “Every day, in our stores, we see firsthand the benefits diversity and inclusion have on our associates, customers and communities we serve. It all starts with the core basic belief of respect for the individual. And that means understanding and respecting differences and being inclusive of all people,” Wal-Mart said in a statement. “We feel this legislation is counter to this core basic belief and sends the wrong message about Arkansas.”
 
 Apple CEO Tim Cook, referring to the measures in the two states, said in a tweet: "Apple is open for everyone. We are deeply disappointed in Indiana's new law and calling on Arkansas Gov. to veto the similar HB1228."

FWIW, I visited the TX state capitol over 3 years ago(and learned some things) - the main job of the governor is just that, bringing in business to the state.

So yes - don't be fooled by all of this dog and pony show going on...who knows the true language in these "religious freedom" bills they are passing.

Stossel: Gay Marriage Movement ‘Has Moved from Tolerance to Totalitarianism’

On Wednesday’s “The O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network anchor John Stossel weighed in on the controversies tied the same-sex marriage issue and how proponents of same-sex marriage have commandeered the debate.

Transcript as follows:

    O’REILLY: “Stossel Matters Segment” tonight. With us now here in New York, John Stossel from the Fox Business Network, you see his program every Friday night.

    OK. I didn’t give you an introduction because I want to just tell this to you, the introduction, just face to face, not reading a stupid teleprompter, ok? It’s right there. All right.

    Now, I believe that gay Americans deserve protections specifically written into the law because of the numbers. Number one, they are very small compared to the big population and children who are homosexual or effeminate if they are boys or different get brutalized. Teenagers brutalized.

    Matthew Shepard, remember the case in Wyoming killed, nailed to a fence post — all right. Only because of their sexual orientation — no other reason.

    So, when you have a situation like that, a situation where we have 325 million people in this country and even if 90 percent of them are good, decent folks, that leaves 32 million people running around that can hurt you. You have got to protect.

    So gay Americans deserve carved out legal protections — you disagree?

    JOHN STOSSEL, FBN HOST: Well, when you say carved out special protections for them.

    O’REILLY: Yes.

    STOSSEL: Not special — yes.

    O’REILLY: But the crime is elevated if you attack someone on the basis —

    STOSSEL: But it’s already a crime if you attack someone.

    O’REILLY: I want it elevated.

    STOSSEL: But we’ve already got all the — race, gender, religion, disability, age — all these specially protected groups. I am two of those. You better be nice to me.

    O’REILLY: Well, I always am.

    But I think you understand where I’m coming from here is that there is a risk in certain areas of this country.

    STOSSEL: Of course. But this is the point.

    O’REILLY: And maybe a local jurisdiction won’t investigate because they don’t — they succumb to the pressure. So the federal government has to get involved. It’s the same thing on the race issue.

    So, I mean I’m going to demand and I think those protections are needed.

    STOSSEL: Fine. No quarrel. Look, I’m for gay marriage, but I think this movement has moved from tolerance to totalitarianism — it’s the totalitarianism of the left.

    O’REILLY: I have no — you are absolutely right on that.

    STOSSEL: No baker should get to stop two people from getting married to anybody they want.

    O’REILLY: They can’t stop it. A baker can’t stop it.

    STOSSEL: But they shouldn’t be forced to bake the cake.

    O’REILLY: I agree with you.

    STOSSEL: I disagree with you and Marco Rubio. This is not about religious rights. It’s about individual freedom.

    O’REILLY: All right. Well, you can carry that over.

    STOSSEL: They don’t have to prove that it’s religious.

    O’REILLY: No, but the baker — there has got to be a reason why. Look if a black couple comes in and the baker says I’m not going to bake the cake because you are black, that’s a crime.

    STOSSEL: Given America’s history, blacks are a special case. But, your point was good about exclusivity. There are lots of places —

    O’REILLY: There’s lots of places to go and if it is a religious thing.

    STOSSEL: All of you, even those who think this is immoral, Hobby Lobby has to go to the Supreme Court to not pay for what it considers murder? That’s wrong.

    O’REILLY: Well, the system actually worked there though.

    STOSSEL: Barely. They had to spend a gazillion dollars to prove they were religious?

    O’REILLY: Let’s get back to this totalitarianism, fascism that’s being imposed by the secular progressive fanatics. That’s got to be, as I told Mr. Rove, confronted. It has to be.

    STOSSEL: We should have freedom of information and the way — I’m sorry freedom of association in America — and the way to fight bigotry. A bigot ought to be allowed to a bigot. The way to fight it is to not patronize that store. I won’t go to the baker —

    O’REILLY: Market place can dictate but a bigot, all right. If you want to be a bigot, you have a right to be a bigot but you don’t have the right to hurt someone in the process.

    STOSSEL: Right. But not selling them a cake isn’t the same thing.

    O’REILLY: Not the same thing. But there has to be legal protections for homosexuals in this country. There has to be.

    STOSSEL: We have those.

    O’REILLY: All right. John Stossel, everybody.

Wal-Mart Demands Arkansas Gov Veto Religious Freedom Bill

Arkansas lawmakers passed a Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Tuesday that critics said would allow businesses to deny service to gays and lesbians, drawing a swift demand from Wal-Mart Stores Inc for the governor to veto the bill.

Arkansas followed Indiana, which passed a similar act last week. They are the first to do so since same-sex marriage became legal in many states last year. Corporations have criticized the measures.

At present 37 of the 50 states and the District of Columbia permit gay marriage.

The world's biggest retailer, Wal-Mart, based in Bentonville, Ark., issued a statement saying the Arkansas bill threatened to undermine "the spirit of inclusion" in the state and "does not reflect the values we proudly uphold."

Signed by Doug McMillon, chief executive officer, the statement asked Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson to veto the legislation.

Indiana's Republican Governor Mike Pence, responding to national outrage over his signing of his state's law last week, vowed earlier on Tuesday to "fix" the act so that businesses could not use the law to deny services to same-sex couples.

Some of the most powerful U.S. companies, including Apple <AAPL.O>, Angie's List, diesel engine-maker Cummins Inc <CMI.N>, Salesforce Marketing Cloud and drug-maker Eli Lilly and Co <LLY.N>, had called on Pence to clarify or repeal the law, which passed with an overwhelming majority in the state's legislature.

Democratic governors, joined by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday, banned official state business travel to Indiana. Auto racing company NASCAR and the Indianapolis-based NCAA, an organization for university athletic programs, voiced concern over the law.

At a news conference Pence said the law protected people of all faiths from being forced by the government to go against their beliefs. The lawyer and one-time radio talk-show host repeatedly denied that the intent of the law was to allow discrimination.

Critics said Indiana's law as it is now written would allow businesses to deny services such as wedding cakes or wedding music for gay marriages on religious grounds.

Pence found support from conservatives including Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz and possible presidential contenders Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, who praised the law.

Supporters have said the acts do not allow for discrimination and are needed to protect religious freedoms.

But critics contend they are part of a broader effort by Republican-dominated statehouses in socially conservative states to push back against a series of U.S. court decisions allowing same-sex marriage.

Pence said the law he signed last week had been unfairly "smeared" and called on the Republican-controlled General Assembly to come up with clarifications this week.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to decide by the end of June whether the U.S. Constitution protects a right to same-sex marriage, and if it does not, whether states that ban it must recognize marriages performed in states permitting such unions.

"What's happened is that with same-sex marriage on the horizon, the individuals and the believers who do not want to support same-sex marriage are looking to a formula in RFRAs to allow them to avoid same-sex marriage in the market place," said Marci Hamilton, law professor at Yeshiva University's Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School and an opponent of RFRAs.

Arkansas' RFRA also allows religious discrimination lawsuits between private parties, and goes a step further in that it would bar employees from invoking religious freedom in suing employers, Hamilton said.

Lori Windham, senior counsel with the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which has brought RFRA cases on behalf of people of different faiths, said the clarification should not be necessary.

"It should already be clear that these laws require courts to balance religious freedom against other interests. They don't mean religion always wins, they mean that religious people have their day in court," she said.

Gay Group Demands Christian Churches Be SHUT DOWN for Opposing Same-Sex Marriage

It has begun. LGBT “activists” have gone full fascist since the passage of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).

Now — right before the holiest days in the Christian calendar — one gay group is attacking Churches who dare to believe that homosexuality is wrong.

The largest gay group in one Western state is demanding that Churches who follow the Bible be shut down by the government.

Jeran Artery, the chairman of Wyoming Equality posted that stunning statement to his Facebook page. When Christians reacted with outrage, the cowardly Artery deleted it. No apology, just hoping it would go down the memory hole. No such luck.

The folks at Conservative Colorado got a screen shot of the post before Artery deleted it.

    Today, in a stunning statement, Jeran Artery, Chairman of Wyoming Equality argued that churches who do not support same sex marriage should lose their tax exempt status.

    “Churches that lobby to have freedoms and rights taken away from ANYONE should absolutely have their 501(c)3 status revoked!!”

    Talk about tolerance, freedom of speech, and religious freedom. Disagree with Artery’s views of same sex marriage and your church will be shut down.

    Gone are the days of pluralism. This is what tyranny looks like.

501c3 gays

This should come as no surprise, as it reflects the vile militancy the LGBT movement is known for. Just as they unleashed threats of violence and arson against a tiny pizzeria in Indiana when they dared to express a very mild opinion against gay marriage, so they want to punish Christians who dare to preach, well, Christianity.

Revocation of exempt status is a financial death penalty for most churches, as an estimated 85% of them barely break even or operate at a loss, with most of their efforts geared toward helping the needy. It makes perfect sense that a far-left gay group would advocate this, as it is how Obama used IRS official Lois Lerner to silence conservative groups.

But notice who he did not mention: mosques. Gays never criticize Islam, even though it is only Muslims who are hanging gays from cranes and throwing them from buildings every sngle week.

Get ready. With weak-knees like Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) already backing down, you can expect the pink mafia to step up their aggressive action against Christians who dare to exercise their 1st Amendment rights.

Did everyone see that video recently where bro Bryan exposed James White and Todd Friel with their Jesuitical double-talk - they defended 501c3 saying how churches in America will be suffering persecution by getting this status stripped from them.

Hello? For one, 501c3 is VOLUNTARY - no church had to file for it. And 2, they did so out of the LOVE OF MONEY. It was THEM, ultimately that put themselves under bondage, and NOT Caesar.

1 Samuel 8:4  Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
1Sa 8:5  And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
1Sa 8:6  But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
1Sa 8:7  And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
1Sa 8:8  According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
1Sa 8:9  Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
1Sa 8:10  And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.
1Sa 8:11  And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.
1Sa 8:12  And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
1Sa 8:13  And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
1Sa 8:14  And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
1Sa 8:15  And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
1Sa 8:16  And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
1Sa 8:17  He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
1Sa 8:18  And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
1Sa 8:19  Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;
1Sa 8:20  That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
1Sa 8:21  And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.
1Sa 8:22  And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

FWIW - I don't mind believers gathering together on Sundays to worship - however, the big problem here is that they get together just one day of the week, and go their separate ways the rest of the week(with the possible exception of Wed nights).

Ultimately, they should be street preaching and doing other things serving the LORD together all throughout the week. For example, James Knox's and Jason Cooley's churches go around their respective areas street preaching through the week(among other things). Both are non-501c3s, BTW.

Doctor Expelled from Boston Hospital for Statements About Health Dangers of Homosexuality

A Massachusetts urologist has been expelled by a Boston hospital for making statements on an internal online portal expressing concern about the health dangers of same-sex sexual activity.

Dr. Paul Church serves as a urology professor at Harvard University and also has admitting privileges at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he has seen patients for nearly the past 30 years. He also has participated in medical missions outreaches in Mexico and Africa.

For over the past decade, Church has expressed concern to his colleagues about the hospital’s promotion of homosexual events. He has commented both via email and on the hospital’s internal portal that it is improper to promote lifestyles that are contrary to the goals of the healthcare community, and has been met with allegations that his comments constitute “discrimination and harassment” and are “offensive to BIDMC staff.”

“The evidence is irrefutable that behaviors common within the homosexual community are unhealthy and high risk for a host of serious medical consequences, including STD’s, HIV and AIDS, anal cancer, hepatitis, parasitic intestinal infections, and psychiatric disorders,” Church wrote on the portal on one occasion, according to reports.

“Life expectancy is significantly decreased as a result of HIV/AIDS, complications from the other health problems, and suicide. This alone should make it reprehensible to the medical community, who has an obligation to promote and model healthy behaviors and lifestyles,” he said.

According to reports, in 2011, after being told that he would be subjected to an investigation if he does not resign, Church received a letter from a peer review committee demanding that discontinue providing his “opinion about sexual orientation, homosexuality, or other protected status.”

Church in turn asked that he discontinue receiving the hospital’s emails promoting homosexual pride events, but when he continued to receive the notices more frequently, he again spoke out. One comment was posted in 2013, and two in 2014.

“Celebrating sexual perversions is highly inappropriate, especially in the context of a medical center that should be aware of the negative health consequences of high risk behaviors,” Church wrote in 2013. “It also ignores and dishonors the religious convictions and moral objections that many members of the hospital community share who are opposed to these behaviors.”

In 2014, he simply responded with a reference to a Bible verse, pointing to Leviticus 18:22 on one occasion and Romans 1:26-28 on another.

In September 2014, a formal investigation was launched against Church, and findings were turned over to a 25-member Medical Executive Committee for consideration. In March, the committee decided to expel Church for his “unsolicited views about homosexuality that were offensive to BIDMC Staff” and for violating the hospital’s discrimination policy.

Church appealed the expulsion, but it was upheld this month by the panel. He is now facing a final ruling from the hospital’s board of directors.

“The hospital is using the serious expulsion procedure against Dr. Church that’s normally used against physicians who abuse patients or commit some kind of malpractice,” the group Mass Resistance, which has been closely following the case, outlined in an update. “Its case is built on a strange dictum that nothing can be posted internally that ‘could offend’ any staff member.”

“But at that same time, the hospital continued to email Dr. Church their pro-LGBT material, even after he asked to be taken off the list, which he (and others) said they found to be offensive,” it continued. “The hospital sees no contradiction at all. This is the brave new world we are entering.”

The legal group Liberty Counsel is representing Church and is considering the doctor’s options.

“This needs to be a wake-up call for America,” attorney Richard Mast told reporters. “What we see being enacted in corporate America is vague terms like labeling something ‘offensive’ is grounds for being fired. We’re seeing deligitimized expressions of religious beliefs. … Rather than disagreeing with ideas, [corporate America] is characterizing the expression of a Christian worldview as offensive, hateful and hurtful, effectively enacting gag orders across corporate America for religious beliefs.”

It's official: 'Homophobia' now a mental disorder!

If you think there might be something wrong with homosexuality, you most likely have a mental disorder, according to a recent study by a team of Italian researchers.

Discussing the study, lead researcher Emmanuele A. Jannini, MD, stated: "After discussing for centuries if homosexuality is to be considered a disease, for the first time we demonstrated that the real disease to be cured is homophobia, associated with potentially severe psychopathologies."

That's right. The research team specifically found that "psychoticism," "immature defense mechanisms" and a "fearful attachment style" were associated with a greater "homophobic" attitude in individuals.

Award-winning journalist and author David Kupelian was not surprised by this new study, because he predicted exactly such developments in his latest book.

"In 'The Snapping of the American Mind,' I predicted that the current obsession of the loony left – which dominates the social sciences – with pathologizing conservatives and Christians as 'disordered' would only accelerate," Kupelian said. "A generation ago, people who engaged in homosexual acts were considered 'disordered' by the psychiatric and psychological professions. Today, simply recognizing homosexuality as disordered makes you disordered!"

Kupelian noted the homosexual activist movement pressured the American Psychiatric Association in the 1970s to remove homosexuality from its official list of disorders. More recently, in 2012, the APA removed "gender identity disorder" from its manual of mental disorders. Gender identity disorder had been the common diagnosis for transgender people.

Meanwhile, those who oppose same-sex marriage or homosexuality in general are often labeled "homophobic," which implies the person has an anxiety disorder (a phobia), notes Kupelian. Other pathologizing labels include "biphobia" for those who don't like to be around bisexuals and "transphobia" for those who don't like to be around transgender people.

Even worse, reveals Kupelian, some researchers have endeavored to prove conservatives' brains are structured differently. A 2010 study in the United Kingdom reported conservatives have brains with larger amygdalas, the part of the brain associated with fear, anxiety, and emotion. In 2012, a University of Arkansas professor released a study linking conservative views to low brainpower, writing, "[W]hen under time pressure or otherwise cognitively impaired, people are more likely to express conservative views."

However, Kupelian revealed that contrary to what liberal social scientists might prefer, solid research has shown that those on the political left are far more likely to suffer from mental illness than those on the right. A 2007 Gallup survey found Republicans reported much better mental health than either Democrats or Independents.

Similarly, a 2013 survey commissioned by BuzzFeed found Democrats were more likely than Republicans to suffer from a whole host of mental illnesses: ADD/ADHD, Asperger's/autism, depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, PTSD, schizophrenia, anorexia, and bulimia.

And yet, the Obama administration seems most concerned about protecting the rest of the country from conservatives, observes Kupelian. They may not have declared conservatives mentally ill, he notes, but the Department of Homeland Security released a report in 2009 warning of a rising domestic terrorist threat from "rightwing extremism." Potential rightwing extremists, according to the report, included returning military veterans, people concerned about illegal immigration, constitutionalists, Second Amendment supporters and pro-lifers, among others.

Kupelian pointed out that the communists of the old Soviet Union also were fond of demonizing and de-legitimizing their ideological opponents– but the Soviets went further than anything seen in the America so far.

"In the Soviet Union, far-left ideology and a powerful impulse to silence dissent led to 'diagnosing' the most normal, clear-thinking and courageous people – 'dissidents' like Natan Sharansky – and incarcerating them in mental hospitals," Kupelian explained.

"We're not there yet in the U.S., but just ask yourself this: How different is it for the crazy left to label conservatives and Christians 'haters,' 'bigots' and 'extremists' – even potential 'domestic terrorists' – as they routinely do today, and labeling the same people as mentally ill? That day may be closer than anybody thinks."

ABC approves gay rights miniseries 'When We Rise,' Gus Van Sant to direct
12/23/15
http://www.upi.com/Entertainment_News/2015/12/23/ABC-approves-gay-rights-miniseries-When-We-Rise-Gus-Van-Sant-to-direct/1571450887318/

NEW YORK, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- ABC has greenlighted the creation of a new miniseries project, When We Rise, following the story of the gay rights movement.

Milk director Gus Van Sant is set to helm the eight-hour series, which has been in development for over two years, Deadline reports. Van Sant will also executive produce alongside Bruce Cohen.

The project presents a new opportunity for the team behind successful LGBT rights film Milk, including writer Dustin Lance Black, to reconvene after the 2008 film.

When We Rise will follow the expanse of personal and public experiences of LGBT men and women in history spanning from the Civil Rights movement and the Stonewall Riots to the present day, Variety reports.

Director Van Sant's most recent project, the Matthew McConaughey-led The Sea of Trees, attracted backlash during this year's Cannes Film Festival in May. Actor McConaughey responded to the negative reaction during a panel discussion saying, "real simply, anyone has as much right to boo as they do to ovate."

Transgender Activists' Wrath Falls on Texas Photographer

(http://media.breitbart.com/media/2016/04/Bathroom-protest-poster-640x480.png)

As of the time of publication of this article, the poster has received over 27,000 shares from her post on the Target Facebook page.

Joyce Moore first added the poster to her Facebook page on April 21st.

She told Breitbart Texas that she made the poster and published it on her personal Facebook page, and on Target’s Facebook page, because it was the right thing to do. She had no idea that the backlash against her small photography business would be so quick and so vindictive.

LGBT and activists for transgenders in women’s restrooms have retaliated by going to her Joyce Moore Photography Facebook page and slamming her in reviews. She has received 39 “1 star” ratings as a result and her overall rating has dropped to 2.8 stars from 5 stars.

Moore was warned that a Facebook page called “Entitlement is still a disease” found at www.facebook.com/EIADII/ had shared a link to her business Facebook page. The person warning her called the group a “hate group” and told her “They are on a mission to destroy you.”

The warning says that the post on the “Entitlement is still a Disease” Facebook page says “This lady created an awful meme about attacking trans rights. Be sure to leave her a wonderful review.”

Interesting, the website listed on the “Entitlement is still a disease” Facebook page is www.f**koff.com Clicking on the website link brings you to a graphic of Democrat presidential candidate Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). It says on the page, “FEEL THE BERN.”

Just a few of the “reviews” she has received to date:

Moore has a photography business and she photographs children and families. She goes to schools to take photos of children. She says that one of the reasons she made the poster against the transgender movement, including the recent decision by Target business executives, is that she is concerned for children.

Ms. Moore told Breitbart Texas that she started making posters or “memes” when she saw a photo on a Facebook page that had a “I’ll Go With You” button. Used to promote a transgender bathroom agenda, they are used to say to transgenders, I will go with you to protect you in the bathroom. The website where the button can be found includes a section that tells people how to be “An #IllGoWithYouBuddy.”

Moore also became concerned when openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, was fighting for the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). Although Houstonians defeated the measure by a margin of 61 to 39, the fight to get to that victory was extensive. It involved going up the court system to the highest court in Texas. Breitbart Texas reported extensively about this battle.

Moore is not the only person who has posted on Target’s Facebook page. Another Texan, Michelle Prescott, added this poster on an advertisement for soup on the store’s page.

As reported by Breitbart News, people are using social media to express their disgust and outrage about the decision by Target executives to allow transgenders or men claiming to be transgender, to use any bathroom or fitting room.

#BoycottTarget has topped Facebook’s top 10 trends for three days in a row, as reported by Breitbart News. The boycott petition by the American Family Association has as of the time of publication of this article, reached over 583,000 signatures.

Moore told Breitbart Texas, “It is insanity to allow males into female restrooms. My poster says it all.  I have a right to my privacy.”

As it relates to her business, she says she is “a small conservative business owner who has worked hard to keep high standards for my business and to keep my clients happy.” She says she “was totally appalled when haters came to my website and started giving me one star and hateful comments. It came to the point that I have changed or deleted all of my personal information.”

Moore says that even though all of this has upset her greatly, she has “no regrets.” She is also encouraged that over 30,000 people and “climbing” have shared her poster.  She says she told one distractor, “I will take your one star to protect the children.”

She asks that people continue to share her poster.

NBA Commish Will Pull All-Star Game If North Carolina Won’t Allow Men In The Ladies Room
NBA doesn't believe in protecting woman!!

"We've been, I think, crystal clear that we believe a change in the law is necessary for us to play in the kind of environment that we think is appropriate for a celebratory NBA event, but that we did have some time and that if the view of the people who were allied with us in terms of a change, if their view, the people on the ground in North Carolina, was that the situation would best be served by us not setting a deadline, we would not set a deadline at this time."

Commissioner Adam Silver believes the NBA has been “crystal clear” that the 2017 All-Star Game only stays in Charlotte if a North Carolina law goes

EDITOR’S NOTE: Whether you realize it or not, what happens in North Carolina will set the standard for the other 49 states as well. The united powers of end times darkness are using every threat they have to get North Carolina to reverse it’s Bathroom Bill protecting women and little girls from pedophiles and perverts in the restroom. I can think of no greater illustration of the battle of good versus evil in the last days than this.

Political and business leaders he’s spoken with in the state believe it will, so he’s holding off for now on setting any deadlines for when the NBA might act.

Silver said last week that the law that limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people was “problematic” for the league, but he believed dialogue was more useful than ultimatums at this point, so has continued discussions with North Carolina officials.


“The sense was that if the NBA could give us some time, they in the community of North Carolina were optimistic they would see a change in the law. They weren’t guaranteeing it and I think which was why my response was the event still is 10 months from now, we don’t need to make a decision yet,” Silver said Thursday during a meeting of Associated Press Sports Editors.

“We’ve been, I think, crystal clear that we believe a change in the law is necessary for us to play in the kind of environment that we think is appropriate for a celebratory NBA event, but that we did have some time and that if the view of the people who were allied with us in terms of a change, if their view, the people on the ground in North Carolina, was that the situation would best be served by us not setting a deadline, we would not set a deadline at this time.”

The North Carolina law directs transgender people to use public toilets corresponding to the sex listed on their birth certificate. The law also excludes LGBT people from state anti-discrimination protections, blocks local governments from expanding LGBT protections, and bars all types of workplace discrimination lawsuits from state courts.

You should listen to the old Lester Roloff sermons - he died in 1982 - he was your typical old timey fire and brimstone, preaching against sin, and striving for holiness preacher.

During his time, he thought the sodomite agenda (which wasn't near the level it is now) was at an all-time high abomination - pt being that if he were alive today, his head would LITERALLY EXPLODE!

Back then, although sodomite marriage wasn't legalize, people were still doing it and getting away with it - now? The current wars are in the RESTROOMS! Beastiality and marriage with underage minors are on the horizon!

Sheriff Says Gay YouTuber Faked Hate Crime

Calum McSwiggan, 26, a YouTuber, posted a photo of himself on social media claiming that he was attacked outside a gay bar in West Hollywood Monday, but the police are telling a different story.

In a statement to The Advocate, Holly M. Perez, captain of the West Hollywood Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, said that authorities responded to McSwiggan's report that he was assaulted by three men outside of a gay club. Officers "were unable to substantiate the assault," Perez said. The YouTuber "had no visible injuries" and was arrested when officers went to the scene "after deputies observed him vandalizing a car." The 26-year-old was booked and photographed (photo above) and placed in a cell by himself at the West Hollywood Station. It was there that station personnel say McSwiggan "was then observed injuring himself with the handle and receiver to a payphone inside the cell."

The YouTuber was taken to a local hospital to be treated for his injuries. "Mr. McSwiggan’s booking photo was taken prior to deputies seeing Mr. McSwiggan injuring himself," according to the sheriff's department statement, after providing McSwiggan's booking photo, which shows no visible injuries.

(UPDATE: YouTuber Charged With Filing False Report, Proclaims His Innocence)

McSwiggan claimed on Instagram to have been left with three broken teeth and six stitches in his forehead, and he shared a photo of himself in a hospital bed with a bandage on his forehead. Riyadh Khalif, a fellow YouTuber and friend of McSwiggan, tweeted that he was with the 26-year-old at the bar that night, but the attack came during a moment that McSwiggan was separated from his friends.

Khalif speculated on Twitter that the three attackers took advantage of seeing the YouTuber alone and took the opportunity to attack him. On Twitter, Khalif claims that the attackers “knew where we were going to be because of our posts on social media before we went out and even said our names as they beat him."

Here's how McSwiggan described the attack in West Hollywood that left him looking battered in a selfie.

“Last night was the worst night of my life and I’m really struggling to find the words to talk about it,”he wrote on Instagram and Facebook. “After one of the most wonderful weekends at VidCon we went out to a gay club to celebrate, and towards the end of the evening I was separated from my friends and beaten up by three guys." He reported that authorities treated him like a "second class citizen,” instead of helping or protecting him.

“I’ve never felt so terrified to be a gay man in the public eye,” wrote McSwiggan.

LGBT people are the minority group most likely to be targeted for hate crimes, according to FBI statistics. So there are a lot more real stories than fictional. In his post, McSwiggan said he wasn’t in the right frame of mind to speak fully about the incident and that he would be addressing it in the future. The Advocate has reached out for comment.

The full statement from the sheriff's department is posted below:

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has an affirmative duty to fully investigate all assaults and reports of violence in our community. Deputies from West Hollywood Station responded to and investigated the report by Calum McSwiggan that he was assaulted by three males after leaving a local nightclub early Monday morning. Responding deputies were unable to substantiate the assault. Mr. McSwiggan, who had no visible injuries, was subsequently arrested after deputies observed him vandalizing a car in the 8900 block of Santa Monica Boulevard.  After being booked and photographed, Mr. McSwiggan was placed into a cell by himself at West Hollywood Station. Mr. McSwiggan was then observed injuring himself with the handle and receiver to a payphone inside the cell. Medical personnel were summoned and Mr. McSwiggan was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Mr. McSwiggan’s booking photo was taken prior to deputies seeing Mr. McSwiggan injuring himself.  That booking photo is attached.

Last night was the worst night of my life and I'm really struggling to find the words to talk about it. After one of the most wonderful weekends at VidCon we went out to a gay club to celebrate, and towards the end of the evening I was separated from my friends and beaten up by three guys. The authorities should have been there to help and protect me but instead they treated me like a second class citizen. With three broken teeth and six stitches in my forehead, I've never felt so terrified to be a gay man in the public eye. All I can do is thank my wonderful friends @riyadhk, @melaniiemurphy and @douga_ for being with me the whole way. I'd be lost without them. Right now I don't feel that I'm in the right place to talk about this but I will be addressing this fully in the future.

California Forces LGBT Family Lessons on Second-Graders

The California State Board of Education voted unanimously to include a comprehensive study of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history in public schools, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The curriculum will be taught to elementary, middle, and high-school students in history and social-science classes.

National Review reported that beginning in second grade, students will learn about different family structures. That includes families with LGBT parents.

The framework states the goal is to help students "locate themselves and their own families in history and learn about the lives and historical struggles of their peers."

In fourth grade, students will learn about the history of LGBT people in California and the country's first gay rights organizations in the 1950s.

Fourth graders will also be taught about Harvey Milk, "a New Yorker who was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977 as California's first openly gay public official," National Review reports. The study of Milk is incorporated into learning about immigrants who come to California.

Under the new curriculum, the role of gender in history will be taught to eighth grade students, including a study on how the Western frontier made way for substantial changes in gender norms.

In high school, students will learn about the first time a sex-reassignment surgery was performed, homosexuals in the military, "LGBT-oriented subcultures," and "the pioneering role of gay politicians," National Review reports.

In addition, as part of the LGBT curriculum, high school students will learn about the Supreme Court decision that overturned sodomy laws.

Obama Admin Appeals Nationwide Ban on Policy Allowing Male Students in Girls’ Restrooms

The Obama administration has filed a notice of appeal a judge’s preliminary injunction banning the enforcement of the government’s recent restroom directives for public schools, particularly surrounding those with gender dysphoria.

“Please take notice that Defendants, the United States of America; the United States Department of Education; the United States Department of Justice; the United States Department of Labor; the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; John B. King, Jr., in his official capacity as Secretary of Education,” the two-page filing, submitted on Thursday, reads.

“Loretta E. Lynch, in her official capacity as Attorney General of the United States; Vanita Gupta, in her official capacity as Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General; Thomas E. Perez, in his official capacity as Secretary of Labor; David Michaels, in his official capacity as Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health; and Jenny R. Yang, in her official capacity as Chair of the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, hereby appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit,” it states.

Among the attorneys filing the notice include Benjamin Mizer, the principal deputy assistant attorney general, who the Washington Blade reports is homosexual.

As previously reported, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor determined in August that the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice had not followed the proper channels in issuing the nationwide guidance, and suggested that the departments’ interpretation of federal law was incorrect.

“It cannot be disputed that the plain meaning of the term sex … following passage of Title IX meant the biological and anatomical differences between male and female students as determined at their birth,” he wrote.

“Without question, permitting educational institutions to provide separate housing to male and female students, and separate educational instruction concerning human sexuality, was to protect students’ personal privacy, or discussion of their personal privacy, while in the presence of members of the opposite biological sex,” O’Connor explained.

The U.S. Department of Justice soon requested that the court limit the injunction to only the states involved in the lawsuit, and asked for clarification on the matter. But on Tuesday, O’Connor advised that his August order applied nationwide, and denied the government’s request that the ban only apply to the plaintiffs in the case.

“Should the court only limit the injunction to the plaintiff states who are a party to this cause of action, the court risks a ‘substantial likelihood that a geographically-limited injunction would be ineffective,’” he wrote. “Accordingly, Defendants’ Motion to Clarify is denied as they request that the court limit the injunction to plaintiff states.”

“It is clear from Supreme Court and Fifth Circuit precedent that this Court has the power to issue a nationwide injunction where appropriate,” O’Connor wrote said. “A nationwide injunction is necessary because the alleged violation extends nationwide. Defendants are a group of agencies and administrators capable of enforcing their guidelines nationwide, affecting numerous state and school district facilities across the country.”

As previously reported, over 20 states sued the Obama administration in June and July over its guidelines requiring schools to accommodate students’ “gender identity” or “internal sense of gender” under threat of losing their federal funding.

“A school may provide separate facilities on the basis of sex, but must allow transgender students access to such facilities consistent with their gender identity,” the May directive from the Department of Education and the Department of Justice read. “A school may not require transgender students to use facilities inconsistent with their gender identity or to use individual-user facilities when other students are not required to do so.”

“As a condition of receiving federal funds, a school agrees that it will not exclude, separate, deny benefits to, or otherwise treat differently on the basis of sex any person in its educational programs or activities unless expressly authorized to do so under Title IX or its implementing regulations,” it warned.

Christian Couple Denied Adoption of Foster Children Over Opposition to Homosexual Parenting

A Christian couple in the U.K. has reportedly been denied their request to adopt two foster children in their care after they told social workers that the juveniles needed a mother and a father, and not two daddies.

According to reports, the couple, which has not been identified, has been looking after the children since early 2016 and has sought to adopt the youth themselves. They had initially been turned down because their house was too small.

When they were later told by a social worker that two men had expressed interest, the couple “expressed a degree of shock and asked if this was a ‘joke.'” They also said that it would be hard to explain the concept to one of the children who had said he was “waiting for a new mummy.”

Two days later, the couple moved forward again to adopt the children themselves, stating that they believed it would be too hard on the children to be removed a second time from people that they loved.

“They said immediately, We want to look after them. We want to adopt them; we love them,” Andrea Williams of Christian Concern told Premier. “They’re thriving in our care. They’re thriving with a mum and a dad, and this is not the situation we want for them. We believe the best interest of the child will be served if they stay with us.”

However, the couple was rejected and told that “having heard that the prospective adopters were a same-sex couple, you shared some opinions in relation to this proposed placement which are concerning … as these views could be detrimental to the long-term needs of the children.”

But the husband and wife, who have biological children of their own, don’t believe anything they said was wrong.

“We are Christians and we expressed the view that a child needs a mother and a father. We expressed our views in modest, temperate terms based on our Christian convictions,” the father told the Sunday Times. “We love everyone (regardless of [their attractions]) and we love the children and believe that they would benefit from the foundation offered by a mother and a father.”

The couple has now appealed the denial, stating that they are being treated wrongfully and that what is best for the children is not truly being taken into account.

“The decision … appears discriminatory to us and not related to the children’s needs,” the father said. “The children love us: we love them. All the reports show that we are a loving, caring and stable family. What more could a child need?”

Online star Calum McSwiggan pleads guilty to vandalism after hate crime claim

Online personality Calum McSwiggan, known for his posts and videos, has pleaded guilty to vandalizing a car, after claiming he was the victim of a hate crime, officials said.

McSwiggan, 26, entered the plea Monday to one felony count of vandalism over $400 damage.

He was sentenced to three years felony probation, 52 anger-management counseling sessions and ordered to pay $7,000 in restitution, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

It was during an altercation with three men on June 27 that McSwiggan damaged the car mirror and bumper of the vehicle of one of the men. Prosecutors say he then falsely told police that he had been beaten by the vehicle’s driver and two other men.

As part of the plea, a misdemeanor charge of filing a false police report was dropped, officials said.

The case was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, West Hollywood Station.

McSwiggan posted a series of Twitter messages Tuesday in response to the plea announcement.

Oregon Official Who Took Down Christian Bakery for Declining Same-Sex ‘Wedding’ Loses Election

 The Oregon official who ordered a couple to pay heavy emotional damages to two lesbians for declining to create a cake for a same-sex “wedding,” resulting in the eventual shutdown of their bakery, lost his election bid last Tuesday.

Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) Commissioner Brad Avakian sought to serve as Oregon’s Secretary of State, but was edged out by Republican challenger Dennis Richardson 47 to 43 percent—and in a state that is traditionally blue.

“His losing was a good sign that people don’t agree with somebody who is anti-constitutional to the nth degree,” Aaron Klein of the now former Sweet Cakes by Melissa told reporters. “He never recognized our religious constitutional rights in his office. He just ignored them.”

“He used his office to execute a personal bias and I think people thought he’d do the same with secretary of state,” he opined. “Most people don’t know his son is gay and he’s got a dog in the fight. For him, it’s personal.”

As previously reported, Avakian had fined Klein and his wife Melissa $135,000 in declaring that they had discriminated against two lesbian women for declining to help out with the 2014 event.

The Kleins had served the women, Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman, in other ways, and the women returned because the couple had treated them kindly.

“I have customers come in almost on a weekly basis that are homosexual,” Aaron Klein told reporters. “They can buy my stuff. I sell stuff. I talk with them. That’s fine. … This was not the first time we’ve served these girls.”

But because the Kleins said that they didn’t feel comfortable with fulfilling that particular order because of the event that it involved, the women filed a discrimination complaint against the bakers.

“We were being asked to participate in something that we could not participate in,” Klein’s wife, Melissa, stated, outlining that the wedding cake is one of the most personal and intricate parts of the occasion.

Some Christians believe that being a part of a same-sex event violates the biblical command in 1 Timothy 5:22 not to be “partakers in other men’s sins,” as well as the command in Ephesians 5:7, “Be not ye therefore partakers with them.”

After the Kleins were declared guilty of discrimination, Cryer and Bowman submitted individual lists of just under 100 aspects of suffering in order to receive damages. They included “acute loss of confidence,” “doubt,” “distrust of men,” “distrust of former friends,” “excessive sleep,” “discomfort,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “loss of pride,” “mental ****,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “shock” “stunned,” “surprise,” “uncertainty,” “weight gain” and “worry.”

But the Kleins told the court that they too had suffered because of the attacks that they received over their desire to live out their Christian faith in the workplace. They stated that they endured “mafia tactics” as their car was vandalized and broken into on two occasions, their vendors were harassed by homosexual advocates resulting in some businesses breaking ties with them, and they received threatening emails wishing ****, death and Hell upon the family.

As a result, the Kleins had to close their business and move it into their private home.

In April 2015, Alan McCullough, an administrative judge with the bureau, recommended a payment of $135,000, with one of the women receiving $75,000 and the other $60,000. Prosecutors had sought damages of $75,000 each.

Two months later, Avakian officially accepted McCollough’s recommendation and ordered the Kleins to pay the women $135,000 in light of the damages Cryer and Bowman listed.

The Kleins then asked for a stay of the order, but were denied. As the couple initially refused to pay the damages, believing that they had done no wrong, officials moved to docket the judgment and seek permission to place a property lien against the Kleins or collect the money in other ways.

In December, the state emptied all of the Klein’s personal banking accounts—including money set aside to pay their tithe. The Kleins told reporters following the incident that they had three personal bank accounts: one checking, one savings, and one account marked “God’s money” for their tithe at church. The three accounts contained just under $7,000 total.

Faced with a nine percent interest penalty for not paying the $135,000, the Kleins then opted to submit a check for the amount in full, using money donated by supporters that was not in their personal bank account. They dropped off a check for $136,927.07 after realizing that the government had seized their personal accounts.

The funds are currently in an escrow account pending the final outcome of the case, which is on appeal.

This case “is about the state forcing business owners to publicly facilitate ceremonies, rituals, and other expressive events with which they have fundamental and often, as in this case, religious disagreements,” the appeal brief reads. “In this case, BOLI misinterpreted [the law], mistakenly concluding that declining to facilitate same-sex weddings is legally the same as refusing to sell goods or services to gay people.”

The Kleins have since shut down their business altogether.

LGBT activists defeat African nations in major victory at UN

NEW YORK, November 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – LGBT activists were handed a victory at the United Nations today when an effort to thwart the first special U.N. independent “expert” overseeing LGBT issues failed.

In a lead up to what LGBT activists considered the most important vote by the UN regarding their agenda in years, the UN General Assembly’s human rights committee further paved the way for a controversial new UN post to enforce special new rights based upon the sexual preference and behavior of individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT).

An African Group of 54 nations had challenged the legality of the UN bureaucratic post, and called for suspension of the appointed expert’s activities, pending further consultation on the legal basis of the mandate.

Vitit Muntarbhorn of Thailand was appointed on September 30 and has begun his work investigating alleged violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The UN General Assembly’s human rights committee voted 84-77 with 12 abstentions Monday to adopt an amendment introduced by Latin American and Caribbean nations eliminating an African-proposed resolution calling for the delay and suspension of the LGBT appointment.

The amended resolution, noting the Human Rights Council's report without any mention of suspending the expert, was then approved in a 94-3 vote with 80 abstentions.

It will now go before the 193-member General Assembly for a final vote in December. It is possible for the African Group to try again for a delay, however it is expected the resulting vote would be similar to Monday's.

The mandate passed by the Council in June increased tension within the United Nations over the advancement of the LGBT cause, according to the Center for Family & Human Rights (CFAM).

The African Group said it was “disturbed” by the continuous focus on “sexual interests and behaviors” and asked that these ideas not be tied to binding human rights law, criticizing introduction of the LGBT agenda into international law.

“The African Group is strongly concerned by the attempts to introduce and impose new notions and concepts that are not internationally agreed upon,” the ambassador of Botswana Charles Ntwaagae said November 4 while presenting the position of the African Group.

“We are even more disturbed at the attempt to focus on certain persons on the grounds of their sexual interests and behaviours, while ignoring that intolerance and discrimination regrettably exists in various parts of the world, be it on the basis of colour, race, sex or religion, to mention only a few,” said Ntwaagae.

Such attempts to add special LGBT rights in to human rights law “undermine the intent of the drafters and signatories to various human rights instruments,” he continued, and “also seriously jeopardize the entire international human rights framework as they create divisions.”

The UN Human Rights Council established this first-ever mandate of an “independent expert” on LGBT issues with a resolution that passed narrowly in June of this year.

The Council, made up of just 47 of the 193 UN member states, is subordinate to the General Assembly, with the General Assembly having authority over the Council body.

A number of countries in the Middle East, along with China and Russia, have joined the African Group in opposing the LGBT advance within the UN, some speaking against the amendment on Monday as well.

Christian Business Owners Face Jail Time for Refusing to Create Invitations for Same-Sex Wedding

 Two Christian business owners in Arizona may face up to six months in jail for refusing to create invitations for a gay wedding.

The Blaze reports that Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski are the owners of a Phoenix-based stationery company that produces wedding invitations and other types of cards. Duka and Koski recently refused to create wedding invitations for a same-sex marriage, citing their religious beliefs.

Duka and Koski are now under fire for violating a Phoenix ordinance protecting gay people from discrimination. They are facing a fine of up to $2,500 as well as six months in prison.

The religious-based law firm Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) is representing the business owners.

ADF lawyer Jonathan Scruggs is optimistic about Duka’s and Koski’s case.

“We fully expect to have a hearing in the next few weeks on our motion for preliminary injunction and to have the Arizona superior court grant our motion and vindicate the free speech and religious liberty rights of our clients,” he told Charisma News. “No American, including artists, should have the government force them to create art against their artistic and religious beliefs.”

Kristen Waggoner, another lawyer representing the two women, added that it is un-American to threaten someone with jail time for their commitment to their religious beliefs.

Illinois Commission Panel Says Christian-Owned Bed & Breakfast Must Host Gay Weddings

A decision forcing a Christian-owned bed and breakfast to pay a same-sex couple $30,000 for refusing to host their wedding ceremony will stand.

A 3-member panel of the Illinois Human Rights Commission refused to hear an appeal in a decision compelling TimberCreek Bed & Breakfast to pay a fine for declining to host a gay wedding on their property, although they have hosted opposite-sex weddings in the past.

TimberCreek owner Jim Walder told The Christian Post that they took issue with the panel decision and were planning to appeal to the full state Human Rights Commission.

"Citizens should only decide not to obey a law after much thought and only in extreme circumstances," said Walder.

"In our opinion, forcing a small business with one employee to host gay marriage which violates the owners sincerely-held Biblical belief that marriage is between one man and one woman is an extreme circumstance, especially when marriage has been understood for thousands of years to be a union between one man and one woman."

In 2011, TimberCreek refused to host a same-sex wedding ceremony, with Walder stating at the time that he opposed on religious grounds to holding such ceremonies even if they became legal.

"We will never host same-sex civil unions. We will never host same-sex weddings even if they become legal in Illinois," said Walder in 2011.

"We believe homosexuality is wrong and unnatural based on what the Bible says about it. If that is discrimination, I guess we unfortunately discriminate."

In response to the refusal, the same-sex couple filed a formal complaint with the state's Department of Human Rights arguing that it is a rejection of the Illinois Human Rights Act.

In March, Administrative Law Judge Michael R. Robinson ordered TimberCreek to pay the same-sex couple $30,000 for causing emotional distress, plus over $50,000 in attorney fees.

"Respondent [must] pay each Complainant $15,000, which represents damages for the emotional distress arising out [of] its refusal to host their same-sex, civil union ceremony," ordered Robinson.

"Respondent [must] be directed to cease and desist from violating the Human Rights Act by discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation when denying same-sex couples access to its facilities and services for their civil union ceremonies and/or marriages."

Regarding the Commission's upholding of the previous decision, Walder told a local media outlet that the "fix was in from the get-go," as he said two of the three panel members were involved in LGBT activism or openly gay.

"The public probably assumes that these three commissioners were nonpartisan, fair and neutral when the exact opposite was the case," stated Walder.

"This feels like blatant reverse discrimination against all business owners, Christian or otherwise, by the IHRC, which is supposed to be an unbiased, neutral party in resolving complaints."

Im thinking this is probably a good thing, sodomites cancelling a christmas party. over Trumps win.  :D But it did sound like it would have been a perfect Saturnalia party

Fashion PR Firm LaForce Cancels Christmas Party Because Trump Won

Fashion industry public relations firm LaForce has canceled its annual holiday bash in New York City due to Donald Trump’s stunning victory over Hillary Clinton in this year’s presidential election.
According to the New York Post‘s Page Six, firm chief James LaForce and his husband Stephen Henderson sent out a letter to invitees stating that the annual industry party — originally set for December 19 at Manhattan’s Irving Plaza, with a one thousand-person guest list — would no longer be happening this year.

“We envisioned an extra-cheerful celebration of Hillary Clinton’s presidency,” the letter to invitees read, according to a copy obtained by Women’s Wear Daily. “Alas, Election Day did not go as we’d hoped. So it’s with deep regret that we are canceling this year’s party.”

“As Hillary said in her concession speech: ‘Let us have faith in each other. Let us not grow weary, let us not lose heart, for there are more seasons to come,'” the letter concluded, along with a promise of more parties in the future.

The invitations to the bash, printed up before Election Day on November 8, had featured a caricature of Clinton wearing a red Santa hat and captioned with the words, “Make America Merry Again.” The invitation called for guests to come dressed “patridiotically.”

LaForce — which includes among its clients such big names as Target, Banana Republic, Swarovski and Perry Ellis — had reportedly planned to incorporate **** male models painted with stars-and-stripes body paint at the party.

Now, the firm will instead donate the money meant for the party to progressive groups including Planned Parenthood, Housing Works and the Stonewall Foundation.

“We just decided we couldn’t go through with it,” James LaForce told the Post.

Virginia Governor Signs Order Only Allowing Govt Contracts With Pro-Homosexual Entities

The Democratic governor of Virginia has signed an executive order requiring the state to only enter into government contracts with businesses and organizations that have anti-discrimination policies in place protecting homosexual and transgenders in “its employment practices, subcontracting practices, and delivery of goods or services.”

Some believe the order effectively bans Christian entities and faith-based charities from working with the state, since they do not enact such policies out of their conviction that they retain the religious right to decline orders for “gay weddings” and similar celebrations, as well as to hire and fire in accordance with the religious values of the company or non-profit organization.

“It is hereby ordered as the policy of the Executive Branch that it will only contract with those who abide by the non-discrimination policies set forward in Executive Order 1 (2014), namely that discrimination on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, political affiliation, disability, or veteran status is prohibited,” Executive Order 61, signed by Terry McAuliffe on Jan. 5, reads in part.

The introduction to the order outlines that McAuliffe’s intent is to build a “new Virginia economy—an economy that embraces the diverse world in which we live.”

NFL Warning that Future Super Bowls Won't Come to Texas if State Enacts Bathroom Bill

The Lone Star State has been mulling a law mandating that people can only use bathrooms and changing facilities that match up with their birth gender and barring transgender people from choosing whichever bathroom they feel like using at any given time.

“Legislation to protect women’s privacy and business is essential to assure that sexual predators … will not be able to freely enter women’s restrooms, locker rooms or showers,” Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said in a statement.

But now the NFL is warning Texas against enacting such a law.

“If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law there, that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy said according to the Associated Press.

The NFL was likely emboldened over the fracas in North Carolina’s bathroom law when the NCAA canceled all postseason tournaments from the Tar Heel State. The NBA also punished North Carolina by removing the All-Star Game from Charlotte. Additionally, the ACC also moved its championship game to Florida over the bathroom law. The punishing reactions of the various leagues may have cost the state up to $600 million in revenue, Forbes magazine wrote last year.

The issue became so contentious that in last year’s election North Carolina Governor Pat McCory lost his re-election bid and the law was suspended. Still, the bill has yet to be repealed.

Only last week the NCAA once again warned North Carolina that they may cancel future events over the law.

Up to seven states are currently considering their own bathroom bills, according to FiveThirtyEight.com. Along with Texas and North Carolina, states looking at such laws include Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.

Wyoming Judge Who Refused to Perform Same-Sex Marriage Reprimanded in Court

A municipal judge in a small town in Wyoming has been reprimanded by the state’s Supreme Court for refusing to perform same-sex marriages.

FoxNews.com reports that Judge Ruth Neely refused to perform same-sex marriages on the basis of her religious beliefs.

In a 3-2 decision, the Court ruled that Neely violated judicial conduct code, but that she wouldn’t have to be removed from the bench.

"Judge Neely shall either perform no marriage ceremonies or she shall perform marriage ceremonies regardless of the couple's sexual orientation," wrote Justice Kate Fox in the ruling.

Neely has actually never been asked to perform a same-sex marriage in the 2,000-person town of Pinedale, Wyoming, or in the broader Sublette County, but her primary responsibilities as a judge have been to perform marriage ceremonies.

Justice Fox added that Neely’s case is not about same-sex marriage or religious objection.

“This case is also not about imposing a religious test on judges," wrote Fox. “Rather, it is about maintaining the public's faith in an independent and impartial judiciary that conducts its judicial functions according to the rule of law, independent of outside influences, including religion, and without regard to whether a law is popular or unpopular."

Snickers promotes LGBT with new rainbow wrapper

Snickers will depict its chocolate bars in rainbow wrappers as part of a pro-LGBT ad campaign.

(https://lifesite-cache.s3.amazonaws.com/images/made/images/remote/https_s3.amazonaws.com/lifesite/GSN_Snickers_283_464_55.jpg)

In a piece for Gay Star News, Mitch Oliver, the UK vice president of marketing for Mars candy company, announced the initiative. It "push[es] the message" to "be who you are," she wrote.

Snickers is sponsoring a new section of the pro-gay website that "will tell stories of LGBTI people and provide resources to help you be yourself even at the toughest times."

"We love the idea we can support LGBTI people to be themselves," according to Oliver. "It matters to our Snickers brand, our business and to me personally."

"We need to do everything we can to encourage people to 'be who you are'" because it's difficult to be "mentally healthy if you are hiding an element of yourself," Oliver continued. An example of this would be "you’re out at home and not at work."

Will those with same-sex attraction who choose chastity be encouraged to "be who they are" as well? What about people who believe we are more than the sum of our sexual attractions?

UK National Union Of Teachers Says LGBTQ Lifestyle Be Promoted To Children Starting At Age 2
Delegates at the union’s national conference in Cardiff on Monday voted for its members to teach about ‘LGBT+’ issues and lifestyles to toddlers starting from nursery school. Teachers bemoaned a “lack of policies which promote LGBT+ within schools”, which they allege has a “significant negative impact” on the well-being of students and teachers who are homosexual or transgender.

4/18/17

Transgender lifestyles and same-sex relationships should be ‘promoted’ to children as young as two to reduce hate crime, the National Union of Teachers (NUT) has said.

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Romans 1:26,27 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: For starters, it is very appropriate that the acronym for the National Union of Teachers is NUT, these people are out of their mind. But it reveals the global agenda of recruiting children to bolster the ranks of the LGBTQ seeing as recruitment is their only avenue for growth.

Delegates at the union’s national conference in Cardiff on Monday voted for its members to teach about ‘LGBT+’ issues and lifestyles to toddlers starting from nursery school. Teachers bemoaned a “lack of policies which promote LGBT+ within schools”, which they allege has a “significant negative impact” on the well-being of students and teachers who are homosexual or transgender.

It was revealed last month that primary schools will likely be legally obliged to teach pupils about same-sex couples as part of the mandatory relationships curriculum that is due to begin from 2019.

But the NUT says the amendment to the Children and Social Work Bill doesn’t go far enough, calling for “age-appropriate content” on the subject at an even younger age, and for secondary school pupils to be taught more about safe sex in gay relationships.

NUT executive committee member Annette Pryce slammed a “right wing, religious lobby”, which she blamed for having prevented ministers from proposing a more “inclusive” agenda for sex education.

“Generations of young LGBTQ people who have been failed by the system are still not told explicitly in the law that their lives are important too,” Pryce said.

They urged ministers to make proposed sex and relationship education (SRE) “inclusive” to so that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students “are told explicitly in the law that their lives are important too”.

Woman Who Identifies as Man Sues Catholic Hospital for Disallowing Uterus Removal at Facility

A California woman who identifies as a man has filed a lawsuit against a Catholic hospital and its parent company for prohibiting her surgeon from performing a sex change-related hysterectomy at the facility because of the organization’s religious convictions.

The 35-year-old woman, who goes by the name Evan Minton, had been scheduled to undergo a complete hysterectomy at Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Carmichael last August. She believed the procedure was necessary to comport with her preferred identity.

However, the day before her appointment, after she noted to a nurse that she identifies as “transgender,” the surgery was canceled.

“In general, it is our practice not to provide sterilization services at Dignity Health’s Catholic facilities,” said spokeswoman Melissa Jue in a statement at the time.

Mercy San Juan President Brian Ivie informed Minton’s surgeon, Lindsey Dawson—who regularly performs hysterectomies at the facility—that perhaps she could instead obtain admitting privileges at nearby Methodist Hospital, which is still a part of the network, but non-Catholic.

Dawson was able to perform the operation at Methodist Hospital within a week, but because Mercy San Juan and Dignity Health would not permit the surgery at the Catholic hospital, Minton filed suit, alleging discrimination.

“I don’t blame the staff,” said Dawson. “I don’t blame the administrators. I blame the [Roman Catholic] doctrines.”

The ACLU asserts in its lawsuit that the denial is a violation of the state’s Unruh Act, which prohibits business establishments from discriminating against patrons on the basis of one’s gender. It is seeking a court order that would force the hospital to allow the procedures in the future.

“The refusal of Dignity Health to allow a doctor to perform this common procedure simply because the patient is transgender is discriminatory,” Elizabeth Gill, a senior staff attorney at the ACLU of Northern California, said in a statement. “This is a hospital that is open to the general public so it’s illegal for them to turn away someone based on gender identity.”

Mercy Health has reiterated its position, but says that it was “happy” to help Minton obtain the operation at one of its non-Catholic facilities.

“We do not provide elective sterilizations at Dignity Health’s Catholic facilities in accordance with the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services (ERDs) and the medical staff bylaws,” it said. “We understand how important this surgery is for transgender individuals, and were happy to provide Mr. Minton and his surgeon the use of another Dignity Health hospital for his surgery within a few days.”

Minton has also obtained a mastectomy and a phalloplasty.

As previously reported, last summer, the Obama administration released guidelines prohibiting sex discrimination in federally-funded hospitals under the threat of losing funding. The rules pertain to language in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, and affects all hospitals that accept Medicare or Medicaid, as well as those directly funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). (Read in full here.)

HHS asserted at the time of issuance that the rules build upon the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Education Amendments of 1972, which the Obama administration interpreted as applying to “gender identity.”

“[A] covered entity may not deny, based on an individual’s identification as a transgender male, treatment for ovarian cancer where the treatment is medically indicated” and if “an issuer or state Medicaid agency denies a claim for coverage for a hysterectomy that a patient’s provider says is medically necessary to treat gender dysphoria,” the case will be investigated, it outlined.

Five states, as well as the Christian Medical and Dental Association and the Roman Catholic Franciscan Alliance, quickly filed suit out of their belief that the government was wrongly forcing them to perform sex change-related procedures violative of the tenets of their faith.

Judge Reed O’Connor sided with the plaintiffs in the case, citing the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and concluding that “[p]laintiffs will be forced to either violate their religious beliefs or maintain their current policies which seem to be in direct conflict with the rule and risk the severe consequences of enforcement.”

Google promotes same-sex ‘marriage,’ gay adoption in new ad

 Google is continuing its attempts to mainstream  the homosexual lifestyle with a 30-second video showing a male couple getting their photogenic children off to grade school.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZNqSy-zFXo

“It’s just more propaganda,” said Gwen Landolt, the head of REAL Women of Canada. “It’s an attempt to normalize same-sex relationships using children as props. But it is not normal and what they are not telling you is that it is not good for children.”

The ad for Google Home, the company’s personal assistant software, promotes the device’s upgrade to be able to recognize more than one voice. In it, two adult men, Alex and Ross, each ask, “Google, tell me about my day.” A male and a female child offer a cheerful “Hi Daddy” between mouthfuls of cereal. Then the two men negotiate who will take the children to school. The girl throws out a parting “a bientot Papa,” leaving a puzzled Alex to ask, “Hey, Google, what does ‘a bientot’ mean?” “It means ‘see you soon’” comes the robotic response.

REAL Women’s Landolt believes Google is currying favor with left-liberal lobby groups such as the Human Rights Campaign.

“They are part of its kennel of mad dogs,” she told LifeSite. Whenever someone or organization offends against the LGBT cause, said Landolt, “HRC opens the kennel and lets the dogs out.”

Landolt pointed to the corporate assault on the state of North Carolina when it passed legislation protecting the privacy and safety of women in public washrooms.

“By doing what the Human Rights Campaign wants, they can be sure they are safe from attack themselves,” she added.

However, the problem with the ad normalizing same-sex couples is that the social sciences indicates that “Children require a mother and a father. The ad is an abuse of children. Google is supporting an abnormality,” said Landolt.

Landolt cited research by Douglas Allen of Simon Fraser University based on a large and random sample of same-sex and heterosexual couples taken from the Canadian census. Titled “High school graduation rates among children of same-sex couples” and published in 2013, it found children living in same-sex  parented households graduated at two-thirds the rate of children in heterosexual families.

A year earlier, Dr. Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas-Austin released a controversial study finding a wider range of negative outcomes for children raised in same-sex families compared with heterosexual families.

Christian Bakery under Fire for again Refusing to Bake Cake for Gay Couple

 A Christian couple who owns a bakery has again refused to bake a cake for an event celebrating gay marriage.

Christian Today reports that the McArthurs own Ashers Baking Co. in Northern Ireland. The couple previously refused to bake a wedding cake for Gareth Lee who was marrying his partner.

Now, the McArthurs have declined to bake a cake for Joe Palmer and his partner Andy Wong for their engagement ceremony.

A friend of the couple, Grainne McCann, ordered the cake online and requested that the words “Gay marriage rocks! Happy engagement, Andy and Joe! Lots of love xxx” be printed on the cake.

Although the order was initially accepted, McCann says she later received a notice that it had been declined, along with a refund.

“My gut instinct told me the cake was refused because it celebrated gay marriage,” she said.

Palmer and Wong ended up ordering a cake from a different bakery. “Thank God I live in London, where I can't imagine something like this happening. I'm staggered that Ashers wouldn't make the cake, but I'm glad that Londoncakes.com supplied it – the cake was delicious and made with love,” Palmer stated.

McCann, Palmer, and Wong say they won’t be filing charges against the McArthurs, but the original case brought against them by Gareth Lee may still reach the Supreme Court.

On Ashers Baking Co. website, the McArthurs say they chose the name because the Tribe of Asher in the Bible was a tribe of skilled bakers.

LGBTQ Doesn’t Allow For Diversity Of Thought Or Show Tolerance Even Among Fellow LGBTQ’ers
"For a group of people to claim to want tolerance, acceptance, and give it to every single person you can imagine to give it to, for them to sit back and judge me for exercising my right as an American to choose my leader without judgment is hypocritical," Talbert said.

6/9/17

An LGBTQ group says ‘Charlotte Pride’ is pushing them out of the Gay Pride Parade because they support President Trump.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The LGBTQ has a socio-political agenda, and if you don’t follow it, even if you are a professing LGBTQ’er, you are kicked to the curb because you dared to hold an opposing point of view. Such is the case with Brian Talbert, a gay Trump supporter. The LGBTQ is not tolerant, is not diverse, and will ostracize anyone and everyone who does not walk in lockstep with their agenda. Even if you’re gay. They truly are a mafia, the LGBTQ mafia.

“I’m very proud of my country, proud of my president, and was once proud of my community,” said Brian Talbert, who said he’s proud to be gay and proud to be a Trump supporter. His truck has a Trump-Pence bumper sticker and ‘Not a liberal’ sign on the back window.

“I’m very proud of my vote. I don’t regret my vote. I will vote for Donald Trump again. I’m proud of my president. I don’t think I should be vilified because I’m proud of a U.S. president as an American.”

Talbert said he and a fellow gay Trump supporter sent in an application to Charlotte Pride so they could have a float in this year’s Charlotte Pride Parade.

“It was going to be fun. We wanted to be energetic. We wanted to show that we weren’t the racist, bigot, misogynistic…We wanted to show that we are Americans, love our country and our president. We wanted to be there to celebrate gay pride. Everything fell into place except being able to celebrate who I am,” he said.
Talbert said Charlotte Pride sent him an email denying his application for a float.

“For a group of people to claim to want tolerance, acceptance, and give it to every single person you can imagine to give it to, for them to sit back and judge me for exercising my right as an American to choose my leader without judgment is hypocritical,” Talbert said.

A spokesperson for the organization said in written statement, “Charlotte Pride reserves the right to decline participation at our events to groups or organizations which do not reflect the mission, vision and values of our organization, as is acknowledged in our parade rules and regulations by all groups at the time of their parade application. In the past, we have made similar decisions to decline participation from other organizations espousing anti-LGBTQ religious or public policy stances.

Charlotte Pride envisions a world in which LGBTQ people are affirmed, respected and included in the full social and civic life of their local communities, free from fear of any discrimination, rejection, and prejudice.

Charlotte Pride invites all individuals, groups, organizations and causes which share our values to join our community’s celebration of the LGBTQ community, history, arts and culture during the Charlotte Pride Festival and Parade, Aug. 26-27, 2017.”

Talbert said, “I don’t judge them for how they vote. I believe men and women died to give us that right to choose our own leader. They don’t extend the same courtesy to me being a gay Republican.”

Talbert said he plans to file a lawsuit against Charlotte Pride for discrimination. Here’s the link to his ‘Deplorable Pride’ website: deplorablepride.org where he’s raising money for lawyer’s fees. source

LGBTQ petition demands permanent ‘rainbow crosswalks’ in cities across the country – TheBlaze


LGBTQ activists in cities across the country are calling for city officials to create “rainbow crosswalks” to “honor the LGBTQ community.”

“Rainbow crosswalks” are public crosswalks that have been repainted in rainbow colors, which have been adopted by the LGBTQ community as a symbol of greater acceptance and rights for LGBTQ causes and beliefs.

Activists are urging local lawmakers to create the crosswalks through the use of petitions. Currently, one of the cities targeted is Chicago. A petition is now circulating there that has garnered more than 4,000 signatures. According to the petition’s text, “Some cities, like San Francisco, have made LGBTQ people feel more at home by creating permanent rainbow crosswalks to honor the LGBTQ community. … This is one small thing that could be done to signal to one of the most marginalized communities in the country that we are here for them, we see them, and we support them.”

Washington, D.C., already installed temporary rainbow crosswalks honoring transgender persons earlier this year, and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed announced this week the city will make its rainbow crosswalks permanent following the circulation of a petition that amassed more than 22,000 signatures. Reed said the crosswalks would be featured year-round in part to honor those who lost their lives in the 2016 Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando.

“On June 12, 2016, amidst the celebration of Pride Month, 49 individuals lost their lives in an unspeakable tragedy in Orlando, Florida,” Reed said in a press release. “Today, on the anniversary of this horrific event, we remember those whose lives were lost and those that were forever changed. Our thoughts and prayers were with you then, and they remain with you today.”

Philadelphia and San Francisco already have permanent rainbow crosswalks of their own, and petitions are now also circulating in and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Milwaukee and New York City to install similar crosswalks, all of which would presumably be paid for by taxpayers.

St. Louis Cardinals Refuse to Bow to LGBT Demands to Punish Christians

The St. Louis Cardinals have sponsored “Christian Day” for 30 years, but recently gay activists have begun to pressure the Major League Baseball team to cancel the special day, or at the very least to remove former Cardinals star Lance Berkman as the event’s spokesman. To it’s credit the team has rejected the demands. Gay activists are upset that the Cardinals have allowed Berkman to be the spokesman of “Christian Day” because he recently spoke out against transgender boys posing as girls in school locker rooms.

Twitter Censorship: Pastor's Ad for Book on Traditional Marriage is Labeled 'Hate Content'

 Twitter has reportedly denied the request of a pastor to use the social media network to advertise his new book which promotes a traditional view of marriage.

The Christian Post reports that Pastor Craig Stellpflug paid for Twitter ads to promote his recently-published book titled One Man One Woman: God’s Original Design for Marriage.

Stellpflug, who is a pastor at Sunrise Baptist Church in Custer, Washington, said that Twitter sent him an email denying his request to advertise his book on the platform.

Stellpflug had wanted to post this tweet: “One Man One Woman is about God's original design for marriage carried from Adam and Eve in the garden through today." The tweet also included an image of the book and a link to WestBow Press’s online bookstore where the book can be purchased.

Twitter told Stellpflug that they do not allow tweet’s that contain “hate content, sensitive topics, and violence globally.” They further stated that Stellpflug’s ad contained “hate.”

 "They started promoting it, they took my money," Stellpflug told The Christian Post. "Then, I get that email that tweet was not approved and that it was determined to be hate."

Stellpflug says his book is not about gay-bashing and actually addresses other topics than homosexuality.

"In fact, I address different issues — homosexuality, adultery, divorce, pornography and other like issues," he said. "I don't give any special weight to homosexuality. I do give tremendous weight to God's forgiveness, God's judgment versus our judgment."

Disney selling gay-themed Mickey Mouse ears

Disney has stirred controversy in recent years with its depictions of homosexuality in animated features for children, and now the iconic Mickey Mouse ears are available in a gay theme.

Exclusive to Disney World and Disneyland shops, “Mickey Mouse Rainbow Love,” selling for $17.99, can be customized with the wearer’s name in rainbow embroidery at an additional cost, according to the website Hornet, reported Christian News.

A social-media post with a photo of the Mickey Mouse ears said: “Disney World got gay ears and I need to get them just to [vulgarity] off old religious people.”

A Disney representative told the Huffington Post the company offers “a wide range of merchandise items that appeal to guests of diverse backgrounds.”

Last October, the Disney Channel teen series “Andi Mack” featured a “coming out scene” for one of its main male characters, noted Christian News.

WND reported in August the Disney Junior channel show “Doc McStuffins” featured a family headed by two lesbian “moms.” The show targets preschoolers and young children, and its website features child-friendly video games and print-out coloring pages.

Disney also announced last year that its new “Beauty and the Beast” movie would feature a gay character.

In March, a Planned Parenthood affiliate tweeted that what the world needs is “a disney princess who’s had an abortion” and is “pro-choice.”

Hawaii Governor Signs Bill Banning Help for Homosexual Youth, Claims 'Sexual Orientation Is Not an Illness'

 The Democratic governor of Hawaii has signed a bill banning professional counselors from helping struggling youth resist homosexual feelings.

“Sexual orientation is not an illness to be cured,” Gov. David Ige claimed during the signing at the state capitol building on Friday. “We accept you and love you just the way you are.”

He asserted that efforts to change homosexual youth “absolutely [have] no place in our beautiful islands.” how is that lava working out for you?

Senate Bill 270, which passed the House earlier this month and the Senate in March, specifically prohibits professional counselors from providing “sexual orientation change efforts” to homosexual youth under 18. It contends that the services place homosexuals at risk of harm, “including depression, suicidality, loss of sexual feeling, anxiety, shame, negative self-image, and other negative feelings and behaviors.”

“No person who is licensed to provide professional counseling shall: (1) Engage in or attempt to engage in sexual orientation change efforts on a person under eighteen years of age; or (2) Advertise the offering of sexual orientation change efforts on a person under eighteen years of age,” the bill reads.

“Any person who is licensed to provide professional counseling who engages in or attempts to engage in the offering of sexual orientation change efforts on a person under eighteen years of age shall be subject to disciplinary action by the appropriate professional licensing authority,” it warns.

While counselors are prohibited from helping youth turn away from homosexuality, the legislation notes that the ban does not apply to any counselor who conversely “provides acceptance, support, and understanding of a person” who has homosexual feelings, or “facilitates a person’s coping, social support, and identity exploration and development…”

Mathew Shurka, a strategist with the “Born Perfect” campaign, which seeks to end “conversion therapy” in states nationwide, cheered the signing of the bill, stating, “As a survivor, I know how harmful conversion therapy can be, and I could not be happier that Hawaii has taken this important step to protect the health and safety of its LGBTQ youth from this terrible practice.”

As previously reported, the Scriptures teach that all men are born with the Adamic sin nature, and have inherent inclinations that are contrary to the law of God, being utterly incapable of helping themselves. It is why Jesus outlined in John 3:5-7 that men must be regenerated by the second birth, or they cannot see the Kingdom of Heaven.

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God,” he declared. “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

2 Corinthians 5:15-17 also teaches, “He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again. … Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Tell that to the young boys that were forcefully raped by older perverted men - often authority figures. The old pervs know exactly what “turning” is. They know that deep shame will keep the boys quiet. And they know that the boys will become future abusers.

U.S. Supreme Court backs Christian baker who spurned gay

* Court says state panel violated baker's religious rights

* Ruling was 7-2, with 2 liberals joining 5 conservatives (Adds details on 2012 incident that triggered the case, Kennedy quote)

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed a victory on narrow grounds to a Colorado Christian baker who refused for religious reasons to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, stopping short of setting a major precedent allowing people to claim exemptions from anti-discrimination laws based on religious beliefs.

The justices, in a 7-2 decision, said the Colorado Civil Rights Commission showed an impermissible hostility toward religion when it found that baker Jack Phillips violated the state's anti-discrimination law by rebuffing gay couple David Mullins and Charlie Craig in 2012. The state law bars businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation.

The ruling concluded that the commission violated Phillips' religious rights under the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment.

But the justices did not issue a definitive ruling on the circumstances under which people can seek exemptions from anti-discrimination laws based on their religious views. The decision also did not address important claims raised in the case including whether baking a cake is a kind of expressive act protected by the Constitution's free speech guarantee.

Two of the court's four liberals, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, joined the five conservative justices in the ruling authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who also was the author of the landmark 2015 decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide.

"The commission's hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment's guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion," Kennedy wrote.

But Kennedy also stressed the importance of gay rights while noting that litigation on similar issues is likely to continue in lower courts.

"Our society has come to the recognition that gay persons and gay couples cannot be treated as social outcasts or as inferior in dignity and worth," Kennedy wrote.

"The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts, all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market," Kennedy added.

The case marked a test for Kennedy, who has authored significant rulings that advanced gay rights but also is a strong advocate for free speech rights and religious freedom.

Of the 50 states, 21 including Colorado have anti-discrimination laws protecting gay people.

The case pitted gay rights against religious liberty. President Donald Trump's administration intervened in the case in support of Phillips.

Mullins and Craig were planning their wedding in Massachusetts in 2012 and wanted the cake for a reception in Colorado, where gay marriage was not yet legal. During a brief encounter at Phillips' Masterpiece Cakeshop in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, the baker politely but firmly refused, leaving the couple distraught.

They filed a successful complaint with the state commission, the first step in the six-year-old legal battle. State courts sided with the couple, prompting Phillips to appeal to the top U.S. court. Phillips has said a backlash against his business has left him struggling to keep the shop afloat.

The case's outcome hinged on the actions of the Colorado commission. In one exchange at a 2014 hearing cited by Kennedy, former commissioner Diann Rice said that "freedom of religion, and religion, has been used to justify all kinds of discrimination throughout history, whether it be slavery, whether it be the Holocaust."

'OPENLY ANTAGONISTIC'

Kennedy noted that the commission had ruled the opposite way in three cases brought against bakers in which the business owners refused to bake cakes containing messages that demeaned gay people or same-sex marriage.

"Government hostility toward people of faith has no place in our society, yet the state of Colorado was openly antagonistic toward Jack's religious beliefs about marriage. The court was right to condemn that," said lawyer Kristen Waggoner of the conservative Christian group Alliance Defending Freedom, which represents Phillips.

Waggoner said the decision "makes clear that the government must respect Jack's beliefs about marriage."

American Civil Liberties Union lawyer Louise Melling, who represents Mullins and Craig, said the high court made it clear that businesses open to the public must serve everyone.

"The court reversed the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision based on concerns unique to the case but reaffirmed its longstanding rule that states can prevent the harms of discrimination in the marketplace, including against LGBT people," Melling added.

The case became a cultural flashpoint in the United States, underscoring the tensions between gay rights proponents and conservative Christians.

Mullins and Craig said Phillips was using his Christian faith as pretext for unlawful discrimination based on sexual orientation. Phillips' lawyers said his cakes are an art form - a "temporary sculpture" - and being forced to create one to commemorate a gay wedding would violate his constitutional rights to free speech and expression and free exercise of religion.

The litigation, along with similar cases around the country, is part of a conservative Christian backlash to the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling. Phillips and others like him who believe that gay marriage is not consistent with their Christian beliefs have said they should not be required to effectively endorse the practice.

Gay rights advocates said the case is just one part of a bigger struggle seeking greater legal protections for gay, bisexual and transgender people, including in the workplace, even as they fight efforts by conservatives to undermine gains secured in recent years.

As Pride Month Progresses, LGBTQ Bullies Force Pusillanimous Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey To Apologize For Eating At Chick-Fil-A • Now The End Begins

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday came under fire for tweeting about spending money at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Los Angeles over the owner’s views on gay marriage.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Just imagine for a moment that you are the CEO of one of the world’s most valuable social media companies, Twitter, with untold millions in your ever-expanding bank account. Now imagine that you stop for lunch to have America’s best chicken sandwich, Chick-fil-a. You enjoy a delish chicken sandwich, and even save money while doing it. You’re so excited that you tweet about it. Then, because it’s LGBTQ Pride Month, the LGBTQ bullies demand you now “apologize for eating at Chick-fil-a” because it’s a Christian company that stands for Biblical beliefs. So what do you, super rich and powerful Twitter man, decide to do? Why you cave in to the LGBTQ bullies, of course, and immedialty apologize for eating at Chick-fil-a, that’s what you do. Pathetic and disgusting. Chick-fil-a doesn’t discriminate against anyone, and employs thousands of LGBTQ workers. You didn’t apologize because you were wrong for eating there, you apologized because you’re a coward who gave in to mob justice. Time to put a skirt on the bird, Jack, and maybe even start wearing one yourself.

Jack Dorsey tweeted a screenshot of his purchases and savings made by using the fast-food restaurant’s mobile app, prompting a backlash from LGBTQ community and the media.

The fast-food chain has been criticized over CEO Dan Cathy’s views concerning gay marriage. In 2012, he came out in defense of the traditional definition of marriage and expressed views critical of gay marriage stemming from his Christian faith.

    “This is an interesting company to boost during Pride month, Jack,” wrote former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, who pointed out that June is dedicated to celebrating LGBT community.
    Others quickly joined in condemning Dorsey, with one saying “On behalf of the whole LGBTQ community, Jack, kindly boost your head out of your a–.”
    “Please delete this or follow up with how much free advertising you’re going to give GLAAD,” wrote another user, referring to the LGBTQ organization.

Dorsey issued an apology for the purchase at the restaurant, telling O’Brien: “You’re right. Completely forgot about their background.”

But the latest remark sparked another round of backlash, this time from more conservative social media users, who questioned what the CEO of Twitter meant by “their background.”

    You’re right. Completely forgot about their background

    — jack (@jack) June 10, 2018

    “’Background’ meaning they employ 41,000 people, many of whom are the most pleasant fast food employees in the country, serve delicious food at good prices, and at amazing speed? That background?” wrote journalist Jeryl Bier.
    “You mean their late CEO being a Christian? Apparently that is something bad/terrible, having faith, running a decent business, never discriminated against anyone, for the ‘tolerance, acceptance, and inclusivity’ crowd,” wrote another user. source

US Supreme Court Asks Washington Supreme Court to Revisit Florist Judgment in Light of Masterpiece Cakeshop Ruling

The U.S. Supreme Court has asked the Washington State Supreme Court to revisit a ruling against a florist who was found guilty of discrimination for providing referrals to a regular customer who wanted her to furnish his same-sex ceremony, directing the court to review the matter in light of the high court’s Masterpiece Cakeshop decision, which found that hostility toward religion unfairly influenced the legal judgment.

The Washington Supreme Court will now need to examine whether or not Barronelle Stutzman of Arlene’s Flowers received a fair trial by the state courts. The U.S. Supreme Court had ruled earlier this month in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case that decision-makers must be neutral toward religion in contemplating whether or not a violation of the law was committed, not being prejudiced against it.

“As the record shows, some of the commissioners at the Commission’s formal, public hearings endorsed the view that religious beliefs cannot legitimately be carried into the public sphere or commercial domain, disparaged Phillips’ faith as despicable and characterized it as merely rhetorical, and compared his invocation of his sincerely held religious beliefs to defenses of slavery and the Holocaust,” wrote Justice Anthony Kennedy on behalf of the 7-2 majority on June 4.

“The Commission’s hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment’s guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion. Phillips was entitled to a neutral decision-maker who would give full and fair consideration to his religious objection as he sought to assert it in all of the circumstances in which this case was presented, considered, and decided,” he said.

The court did not reach, however, whether or not business owners may decline to fulfill orders surrounding same-sex events, but said, “The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts, all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market.”

The ruling was therefore characterized as “narrow,” which confused some Americans who thought the outcome was a great victory, being 7-2. “Narrow” referred to the scope of the ruling—that the justices did not provide answers to a number of questions surrounding the matter—but only remarked that hostility toward religion can’t cloud legal decisions, and that the issue would have to play out more in the courts.

As previously reported, the Arlene’s Florist case began in 2012 when Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson leveled Stutzman with a lawsuit as he claimed that she violated the law by not fulfilling an order for a same-sex event.

Stutzman had been approached by one of her faithful customers, Robert Ingersoll, a homosexual, as he wanted her to supply the floral arrangements for his upcoming ceremony with his partner, Curt Freed.

“We had gone to Arlene’s for many years and enjoyed her service. She did a great job for us, so it was just natural for us to go there to have her do our flowers,” Freed told KUOW radio.

Stutzman stated that she politely explained that she would not be able to help in regard to the event, but referred him to three other florists that could be of assistance.

“I just took his hands and said, ‘I’m sorry. I cannot do your wedding because of my relationship with Jesus Christ,’” Stutzman told reporters.

But after Ingersoll decided to post on Facebook about the matter, controversy arose on both sides of the issue—both for and against Stutzman. The florist said that she received a number of threatening and angry comments.

“It blew way out of proportion,” Stutzman explained. “I’ve had hate mail. I’ve had people that want to burn my building. I’ve had people that will never shop here again and [vow to] tell all their friends.”

Weeks later, Attorney General Bob Ferguson issued Stutzman a letter advising that she must accommodate homosexual ceremonies or be subject to a lawsuit and heavy fines. He included with his letter a form that offered Stutzman the opportunity to recant and agree to comply with the law. She refused, and was subsequently met with a discrimination suit.

But the Christian legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) contended that Ferguson’s actions were inappropriate since he never received a complaint, but rather filed on his own volition. It also filed a motion asking that Ferguson and the ACLU—which filed a separate suit—be prohibited from attacking Stutzman on a personal level.

In January 2015, Benton County Superior Court Judge Alex Eckstrom—while throwing out a charge that accused Stutzman of directing her business to violate the state’s anti-discrimination laws—ruled that the florist may be held personally responsible for the incident.

A month later, Eckstrom granted summary judgment to Stutzman’s opponents, agreeing that she had committed an act of discrimination. The court also ordered Stutzman to provide full service to same-sex ceremonies, which includes not only accepting the order, but also delivering to the homosexual celebration, and assisting with the specific arrangements and decoration on-site.

She appealed to the Washington Supreme Court, which unanimously upheld the lower court ruling in February 2017. Stutzman consequently appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has rightfully asked the Washington Supreme Court to reconsider Barronelle’s case in light of the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision,” Kristen Waggoner with ADF remarked in a statement on Monday. “In that ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court denounced government hostility toward the religious beliefs about marriage held by creative professionals like Jack and Barronelle. The state of Washington, acting through its attorney general, has shown similar hostility here.”

“Barronelle, like Jack, serves all customers but declines to create custom art that expresses messages or celebrates events in conflict with her deeply held religious beliefs. The Washington attorney general’s efforts to punish her because he dislikes her beliefs about marriage are as impermissible as Colorado’s attempt to punish Jack,” she said.

Stutzman also reiterated both in a statement and in video form that Ingersoll was her friend, and she has served him many times—including on Valentine’s Day—and would serve him again.

“Rob was my customer and friend for over nine years,” she said. “I knew he was gay, and it was never an issue. I serve everyone. He enjoyed my custom floral designs, and I loved creating them for him. I would gladly serve Rob if he were to come back to my shop today. The attorney general has always ignored that part of my case, choosing to vilify me and my faith instead of respecting my religious beliefs about marriage.”
