Once more President Obama proclaims June to be the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender [don't forget Transgender] Pride Month." Every federal worker and member of the armed forces received a presidential proclamation in their email. It labels all opposition to homosexual behavior as "prejudice," which, in effect, declares all traditional Christians to be bigots and enemies of the state's ideology of sexual "diversity."
"... We celebrate the proud legacy LGBT individuals have woven into the fabric of our Nation, we honor those who have fought to perfect our Union, and we continue our work to build a society where every child grows up knowing that their country supports them, is proud of them, and has a place for them exactly as they are.... I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people."

Is the Obama administration moving to require Christian nonprofits that receive government grants to follow LGBT non-discrimination rules in hiring?
A May 29 blog post by Austin Ruse, president of the Center for Family & Human Rights (C-Fam), claimed that an "unnamed source within the federal government" informed him that "the White House is quietly moving forward" with an LGBT non-discrimination policy for nonprofit organizations receiving government grants.
Since then, however, a White House official has assured another religious freedom organization that no decisions have been made about federal grantees. more >>
Saleem al-Jubouri, the speaker of the Iraqi parliament and the country's highest-ranking Sunni politician, said in a speech on Monday at the Institute of Peace in Washington D.C. that defeating terror group ISIS will not be enough to end radicalization in the region. He said that a "new democracy" must be "built in the minds of people" in order to prevent new forms of oppression.
Jubouri pointed out that some who are fighting ISIS militants in Iraq are being heavily armed by foreign forces, and will still be in possession of such weapons if or when the terror group is driven out of the territory.
He said that "those who have weapons are in a much more powerful situation than others," referring to the various armed groups who have been pushing back against ISIS. more >>
An interfaith group of religious leaders who advocate for abortion has called on the Obama administration to pressure countries that have restrictions on the procedure to lift their bans for women who've been raped and impregnated by members of terrorist groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram. Pro-life activists, however, argue that the proposal is "reprehensible."
On Thursday, the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice — which previously told The Christian Post that the organization opposes any restrictions on abortion, including during the third trimester — and the Center for Health and Gender Equity held a "Faith Leaders' Summit" on the issue, just steps from the White House at St. John's Episcopal Church.
Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders called for changes to be made to the Helms Amendment (named after the-late Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C.), which is a 42-year-old federal law that prevents U.S. foreign aid from being used to fund abortion "as a method of family planning or to motivate or coerce any person to practice abortion." more >>
If I see that creepy Vanity Fair cover of Bruce Jenner come across my Facebook feed just one more time, I'm going to gouge out my eyeballs and bleach the sockets.
Ladies, please, if you ever again struggle with body image, just know that those stupid chick magazines you thumb through every day while nibbling arugula and baby carrots like some bulimic bunny, can, through the simple magic of $200,000 in plastic surgery and enough airbrushing to power a windmill farm, make a 65-year-old mentally ill man look, sort of, like a 35-year-old country club ninny. Brucie baby ain't got nothin' on you, sweetheart, I promise. It's all fake as the rubber grapes on grandma's centerpiece. You are you, he is he, and the cover models on your silly mags don't look a stitch like that.
So, since it's apparently a slow news day when the Islamic State announces its intention to slip nukes across Obama's wide-open southern borders, and since America is singularly focused on one man's sorry stab at genital alchemy, I thought I'd add some more bub to the hubbub. more >>
The International Olympic Committee has no plans to revoke the gold medal of Bruce Jenner despite calls from an online petition to do so following Jenner's gender identity change.
Earlier this week, an individual living in Massachusetts posted a petition on the White House's "We the People" site calling for the revocation of Jenner's 1976 gold medal.
"As we all know, Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) is an Olympic gold medalist," states the petition, which must get 100,000 signatures by July 1 to be guaranteed an official reply from the Obama administration. more >>
