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

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.

Sodomy has been watered down tremendously in these false perverted versions. It's no surprise they don't know what's going on.

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.

Noted SF activist pleads guilty to child ****

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.

Like I've said in the past, I have ZERO doubt the gay lobby has people looking for lawsuit situations. I bet they sit around and strategize what business to go after next.

http://news.yahoo.com/aclu-bankrolling-gay-weddings-in--my-big-gay-illegal-wedding--contest-220820654.html;_ylt=A0LEVxa2yOtSXSEA.VRXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEzYmgwY3VhBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkA1ZJUDMyMl8x
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."

Looks like Obama and the NWO minions are double-crossing their sodomite supporters too.

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.

Oh, they will cover pre-existing alright, but you WILL pay for it. Insurers are making sure of that.

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.”

Same-sex marriage is recognized in 17 states and the District of Columbia.

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.

Be ye not deceived...the enemy strikes from WITHIN!

http://gma.yahoo.com/gun-club-liberals-un-nra-010923198.html
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."

And just where are the articles supporting the bill? Looks like the media isn't allowing any opposition.

What we have, AGAIN, is a bunch of gay lobby friendly companies and people who are selfishly using threats of retaliation if they don't get their way.

I'm really starting to hate this whole situation.

I'm sick of hearing about gays, and having people tell me how I'm suppose to live.

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."



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.

This can't and won't go on much longer...

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!...
