Mutable or immutable?

Homosexuals are born that way, gay activists argue vehemently. How is it that so many have changed?

Science has been enlisted to depathologize homosexuality in so far as it can lend credence to the assertion that homosexuality is an immutable condition. The immutability issue is as irrelevant to the moral nature of homosexual behavior as it is to alcoholic behavior. Alcoholics, by definition, are alcoholics for life. If they wish to remain sober, they may never drink again. Read more…

A warning: Canadian scouts fled after open-door policy

May 29th, 2013 Comments off

by Charlie Butts

Canada voted in 1998 to allow open homosexuals, and participation in the scouting program plummeted, says Rob Schwarzwalder, a spokesman for the Family Research Council.

“Within a space of 10 years participation in Canada’s scouting program had fallen by 50 percent, so we think that actually the fallout [in the United States] could be much greater,” Schwarzwalder says. Read more…

The Boy Scouts cave in

Under enormous pressure, they have voted to welcome openly gay scouts. What message does the change in policy send young people?

The Boy Scouts have fought long and hard against being forced to include avowed homosexuals in its ranks as either Scouts or scoutmasters. In the Boy Scouts of America v. Dale (2000), the Supreme Court upheld the Boy Scouts’ First Amendment right of expressive association in removing an assistant scoutmaster who was “an avowed homosexual and gay rights activist”.

Matt Barber reveals government brochure on how to treat LGBT employees

Excerpt from the article:

…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 pride,” employees are ordered: Read more…

Vater, Vater, Mutter, Mutter, Kind

A German parliamentarian’s homosexual household (and friends) takes the next step in “family diversity”.

The Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (“West German General Newspaper” or WAZ), Germany’s self-professed “largest regional newspaper” covering the Ruhr area from the paper’s headquarters in Essen, reported April 24, 2013, on the unique personal life of one lawmaker in the German Bundestag or parliament. This thoroughly modern homosexual living arrangement of a national politician indicates just what troubling implications a society’s adoption of same-sex “marriage” (SSM) entails. Individuals in the United States and elsewhere considering SSM should take note.  Read more…

Lesbian Activist’s Surprisingly Candid Speech: Gay Marriage Fight Is a ‘Lie’ to Destroy Marriage

May 2nd, 2013 Comments off

Key quote:

“It’s a no-brainer that [homosexuals] should have the right to marry. But I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. [resounding applause]. That causes my brain some trouble. Part of why it causes me trouble is because fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we’re going to do with marriage when we get there. Because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change. And that is a lie. The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change, and again, I don’t think it should exist.” Read more…

Apr 15, 2013, Vol. 18, No. 29 • By WESLEY J. SMITH

“Homophobia?” Archbishop Chaput nails it

March 27th, 2013 Comments off

Submitted by Ginny

This is the best concise summation I have read of how belief in traditional marriage ends up being labeled as homophobia. 

The problem, as law scholar Gerard Bradley points out, is that critics of religious faith tend to reduce all of these moral convictions to an expression of subjective beliefs. And if they’re purely subjective beliefs, then—so the critics argue—they can’t be rationally defended. And because they’re rationally indefensible, they should be treated as a form of prejudice. In effect, two thousand years of moral experience, moral reasoning, and religious conviction become a species of bias. And arguing against same-sex “marriage” thus amounts to religiously blessed homophobia. Read more…
