Many major companies are tweeting out their support of Friday's Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage across the country. The Italian pasta maker Barilla, which publicly favored traditional marriage until recently, has also reversed its stance on gay marriage.
"Labels are for Products. Not People," tweeted Procter & Gamble, making a rainbow with its many products.
Procter & Gamble is one of 379 employers who were part of an amicus brief filed in March urging the highest court to strike down same-sex marriage bans across the country, according to National Journal. more >>
Theologian John Piper responded to the Supreme Court decision that states cannot ban same-sex marriage, saying it approves and institutionalizes the sin of homosexual intercourse.
"Jesus died so that heterosexual and homosexual sinners might be saved," Piper, chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, wrote on his desiringGod blog, adding that this salvation from sinful sexual acts "was not embraced," as the highest court's ruling shows.
"Instead there was massive institutionalization of sin," Piper said. more >>
Dear Justice Kennedy,
I'm sure you are getting flooded with words of congratulations from your admirers and words of criticism from your detractors, but please allow me to offer my own hearty "thank" you – yet as a staunch critic of your decision, one of the most infamous in the history of our nation.
Why then do I thank you? more >>
The pace of change impacting the United States of America is accelerating at an alarming rate. This week the Supreme Court bolstered Obamacare by rewriting the law and sanctioning the subsidies that are the centerpiece of the program. On Friday, by a 5-4 margin, the justices legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. This sweeping decision rendered meaningless the vote of Americans in states across the nation.
In essence, these Supreme Court justices, a majority appointed by Republicans, have become a leading force in advancing the liberal agenda. According to research from the New York Times, 54% of the rulings in this term have been liberal, making it the most left wing Supreme Court in 46 years.
In Congress, spineless Republicans have refused to withdraw funding from Obamacare or the President's executive order to grant amnesty to five million illegal aliens. With de-facto open borders, illegal immigrants continue to stream into the country. Unlike previous generations, millions of both legal and illegal immigrants are clinging to the customs and culture of their homeland instead of assimilating into the United States of America. more >>
Newly released FBI documents confirm, just like President Obama, hard-core communism runs deep in the family of his most influential and trusted advisor, Valerie Jarrett. Ms. Jarrett, the President's most senior advisor is the one some describe as Mr. Obama's puppet-master, the wind beneath his wings, the real president.
The FBI documents reveal Ms. Jarrett's late father, James E. Bowman, was in contact with a paid Soviet agent wanted for espionage and was also involved with communist front groups in the 1950s. Her mother's father, Robert Rochon Taylor, was in a business relationship with the same Soviet agent linked to her father and also investigated by the FBI for his affiliation in communist groups. The FBI also flagged Ms. Jarrett's late father-in-law, Vernon D. Jarrett, as a domestic security risk, raising money and openly supporting communist candidates. He was assigned by Communist Party USA to a special cultural arts group whose mission was to propagate the Communist Party line through indoctrination using the media of the day, including newspapers and radio. In a nutshell, according to the FBI file, Ms. Jarrett's relatives were heavily involved with a group, Communist Party USA, whose mission was to fundamentally transform the American form of government and way of life.
The FBI report finally gives proof to support what many who've watched this White House with eyes wide open have long suspected: The children of communists are running our country in a way that would make their folks proud. But, to quote Hillary Clinton, using her most-annoying-sound-in-the-world-Benghazi-screech, "What difference does it make?" It makes a world of difference, considering current and past history proves time and again, there is no such thing as good communism, just bad and worse. more >>
The U.S. Episcopal Church made history Saturday by electing its first black presiding bishop at its general conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, where the denomination will also explore the church's directives on issues including gun violence, the Israel-Palestinian conflict and same-sex marriage.
"It really is a blessing and privilege to serve our church and to serve our Lord in this way," Michael Curry said after he was elected to replace outgoing Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, the first woman to lead the denomination.
"I treasure this church, this house, the House of Bishops, all of us. We are God's children," added Curry, who will officially take office on Nov. 1, according to Episcopal News Service, which reported that he was elected by the House of Bishops from a slate of four nominees on the first ballot. more >>
