Wednesday, August 8, 2012
ifi
Before you go back to school, the Illinois Family Institute wants to remind Christian parents everywhere how they can go after those damn teachers who challenge students’ thinking. No joke. Laurie Higgins‘ piece is entitled “Challenge teachers, not books” -- because, as we all know, teachers who discuss banned books [...]

The illusion of the ‘Gay Lifestyle’ — Setting it straight

Sunday, August 5, 2012
gay-lifestyle-300x205
It cannot be beyond comprehension that gay people also have jobs and careers, play and watch sports, socialize, walk our dogs, take exams, celebrate holidays, save for a house, pay the bills, eat, sleep and drink. That gay people live everyday lives too. What is there to misunderstand? Where is [...]

The-Lavender-Scare
Historically, discussions about the decline of morality have almost always been subsumed into fears about national security, and the rise of McCarthyism was no different. Senator Joseph McCarthy charged that both communists and homosexuals had infiltrated the federal government and this, of course, was going to lead to the total [...]

Religious bigotry on display: ‘Fuck you queers,’ say Chick-fil-A patrons

Saturday, August 4, 2012

In an act of ultimate intellectual cowardice, conservatives have decided to equate any and all criticism of Dan Cathy and his homophobic views/actions, as an attack on his right to freedom of speech.

Gay parenting: After the Regnerus debacle, where are the apologies?

Thursday, August 2, 2012
Mark Regnerus
Now that an internal audit at Social Science Research has confirmed that the Mark Regnerus “gay parenting” study was indeed so badly flawed it never should have survived peer review, it’s safe to say that we can move past examining the specifics of how it went wrong, and start looking [...]

Boycotts: A leftist tactic by gays, but a ‘Christian value’ when gays are the target

Wednesday, August 1, 2012
chickfila-sign
It should be apparent where there is a hefty opposition to Chick-fil-A, by the LGBT community and those who value their equality. Unsurprisingly, however, many right wingers, who sympathize with Chick-fil-A’s homophobic views, have labeled this opposition as “bullying,” “leftist intolerance,” “an affront to Christianity,” and “an attack on Chick-fil-A’s [...]

The leftist homosexuals did not bully Donald Perry to death

Sunday, July 29, 2012
Donald Perry
Now, as you can probably guess, there have been some, on the right, who have correlated Chick-fil-A's recent public relations firestorm to Donald Perry’s sudden death. Some have even dubbed him as a victim of “leftist homosexual bullying,” asserting that the stress set upon him by the opposition to Chick-fil-A [...]

Sunday, July 29, 2012

There’s a lot of talk about the biblical definition of marriage and the family; however, I can’t find where those terms are explained anywhere in the bible. Nonetheless, a careful reading of the Good Book provides some basic guidelines that clearly warrant some discussion... [...]

Can my ‘gay community’ please stop whining about Sally Ride?

Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Sally Ride
We sometimes expect our famous gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to carry our banner to every corner of the world, shouting how we deserve and demand equal rights, when the reality is that they are simply trying to live a gay life in a straight world just as you [...]

Should I Come Out on Facebook?

Sunday, July 22, 2012
facebook-rainbow
Coming Out on Facebook depends on why and how you do it, but overall it can be a worthwhile means of coming out. It gives you a sense of control, an ability to present the information in a premeditated way, and a large audience to speak to. So I say, [...]
