An Uncomfortable Religion

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the controversy surrounding Indiana’s “religious freedom” law. Debates on this issue ultimately boil down to a question of liberty v. justice. Christian business owners invoke their First Amendment right to exercise their conscience when it comes to whose patronage they […]

When the Slippery Slope is Real

by

Many people lump together all of the social changes that have taken place in American history as part of one broad march of “progress” toward a more just society. If this view is correct, does the march of progress ever reach completion? There is a classic debate between progressives and traditionalists on social issues. It […]

The Travesty of Two Daddies

by

Every once in a while, I come across a story that stops me in my tracks. Like the Italian high court’s decision to overturn a pedophile’s conviction because his 11-year-old victim says she’s “in love.” Or the Australian judge who pointed out that easy access to abortion and contraception may lead to the legal sanction of incest, as it […]

Catholic Romance Novel Shows Sacrifice at the Heart of Love

by

Just as the movie Brokeback Mountain paved the way for widespread acceptance of homosexual love affairs, the novel The Lion’s Heart is poised to do the same for the Catholic view of homosexuality. Almost certainly the first of its kind, this gay Catholic romance novel was written by Dena Hunt (also author of Treason) and published by Full […]

UN Elects Ugandan as President, Pushing Back on US LGBT Pressure

Western pressure on African countries to liberalize policies on homosexuality has had a boomerang effect, uniting Africans against it and resulting in what some see as a new non-aligned movement of countries. Last week the United Nations elected a Ugandan as president of the General Assembly over  last-ditch efforts by activists who, along with the […]

Consensus on LGBT Rights Eroding at Organization of American States

by

The seemingly inevitable march of gay rights in the Americas was slowed last week when an inter-American gathering in Paraguay refused to impose same-sex marriage.

Why HIV, Syphilis, and Gonorrhea are Rising Among Homosexuals

by

This week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its annual report,Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance 2012, to whining among journalists that the reason for the documented continued rise in syphilis (primarily affecting homosexuals) has more to do with homophobia than anything else. Consider the following from Bloomberg News: Gonorrhea and syphilis are on the […]

U.S. Supreme Court Halts Same-Sex “Marriages” in Utah

by

In a shock to homosexual activists, the Supreme Court halted all same-sex “marriages” in Utah on Monday morning. The state began handing out marriage licenses to same-sex couples last month after Judge Robert Shelby’s ruling that Utah’s voter-approved constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman violates the U.S. Constitution. However, last week, […]

Why I Love the Sinner and Hate the Sin

by

I recently read an article on Huffington Post entitled “Why I Can’t Say ‘Love the Sinner/Hate the Sin’ Anymore.” The author, Micah Murray, is obviously a very caring individual, and I understand where he is coming from. He hates the idea that we would see gays – or anyone – as someone substandard, someone who is “other” […]

Mom and Teen Disagree About Pope’s Message

by

Q. Pope Francis’ recent comments about gays — meant to be loving and conciliatory — have unfortunately created tension in my home. My teenager believes his comment, “Who am I to judge?” means that we should accept homosexuality as a normal occurrence and, therefore, something we shouldn’t reject. I’m certain that’s not what the pope meant — […]

When Gay “Marriage” Affects Your Family

On June 26, 2013, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was struck down in a five- to- four decision by the United States Supreme Court. Gay activists south of the border were overjoyed.

UN Delegates Grow Weary of Abortion Agenda

Late-night fatigue dogged UN delegates last Friday as abortion advocates had overstayed their welcome. A resolution on migration stalled all week and no one even cheered when it finally passed. Proponents of abortion and sexual rights stifled debate at this year’s Commission on Population and Development, known as CPD46. While the commission addressed something as […]

Marriage Is What It Is

“It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is,” said the smooth-talking, skirt-chasing, totally busted philanderer. “Well, no, Bill,” replied Congress. “Actually, things just ‘is’ what they is.” Here’s what marriage is: The God-ordained, lifelong, covenantal union between man and wife, designed to provide men, women and children optimal stability and overall well-being.

In his inaugural address on Monday, January 21, Barack Obama called for Americans to embrace same-sex marriage, saying: Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law–for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal […]

From Their Own Mouths: LGBT Lobby Plans to ‘Wholly Transform the Definition of Family’

by

“Transforming the very fabric of society;” and “radically reordering society’s view of reality”: these are what “being queer” means to the ideologues behind the homosexual political movement that is currently sweeping through legislatures around the world. Is this the insane ranting of a right-wing Christian conspiracy theorist? Is it yet another “attack” by wicked Pope […]

The Supreme Court Looks at Marriage and Gender

Defenders of traditional marriage may not believe it, but the Supreme Court’s apparent intention to decide two important same-sex marriage cases by midyear may be a stroke of good fortune for their side. This timing means the Supreme Court’s first head-on tangle with this issue almost certainly will come before President Obama gets an opportunity […]
