Same-sex marriage never will be widely accepted in America for a simple reason: It's based on a lie. But don't take my word on this; leading LGBT scholars and activists say as much.
Take Masha Gessen, acclaimed author and former Russian director of Radio Liberty. "Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there - because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change," Gessen said last year.
Last month, I was part of a debate at NYU Law School at which Judith Stacey, a sociology professor at the university, declared: "Children certainly do not need both a mother and a father." more >>
Facebook's first president, Sean Parker, who was also the co-founder of NAPSTER, recently got married in Big Sur, California. The wedding for 300 guests was estimated to cost $9 million.
That's astounding. I was driving through Big Sur recently on vacation. (We just happened to have a mini-family vacation there.) We stopped for gas, and I was pumping away before I looked at the price. It was more than $6.00 a gallon! That's high even for California. I stopped immediately---when I noticed the cost. At least it was a nice view.
Writing for the Telegraph in the UK (6/3/13), Nick Allen says of the wedding, "The scene did reportedly resemble a Hollywood set with landscapers spending weeks building fake waterfalls, ruins and backdrops, and a $600,000 stone gate." They spent about $1 million in plants/flowers. more >>
An 11-year-old boy who hopes to become a Navy SEAL was suspended from a Maryland school after he used the word 'gun' in a conversation on board a school bus.
The sixth-grader at Northern Middle School in Owings was talking with a group of friends about the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre when the bus driver overheard the conversation.
"He said, 'I wish I had a gun to protect everyone from the bad guys,'' said Bruce Henkelman, the boy's father. "He wanted to be the hero." more >>
In a preemptive strike against women who have reportedly been propositioning her husband, the Christian wife of Republican Alabama State Senator, Shadrack McGill, 38, fired off a warning missive on Facebook on Monday, ordering the women to stay away from her husband or face public shame.
"This may go viral and if so my prayer is that it strengthens marriages and families across this district, our state, and our country! I am very blessed to be the wife of a God fearing, hardworking, ministry minded, loving father and husband and it is not just my right but my duty to lovingly serve him by protecting him!" wrote the senator's wife, Heather McGill, in the missive on her husband's Facebook page.
"I have been silent for long enough!! NO MORE! Multiple times since being in office he has gotten emails from women (who may not even be real) inviting him to explore, also sending pictures of themselves. NO MORE!!! It is a shame that people are so heartless that they would try to split up families. We have children that look at our face books from time to time! Shame on you! You know who you are," she added. more >>
Michelle Obama was heckled by a gay rights activist at a recent Washington, D.C., fundraiser, leading to a face-to-face confrontation between the First Lady and the protester.
Obama was speaking at a Democratic Party fundraiser Tuesday when lesbian activist Ellen Sturtz interrupted her with a demand that President Barack Obama sign an anti-discrimination executive order.

"One of the things I don't do well is this," said Obama, with the audience cheering her in response before she encountered Sturtz. more >>
What does your bride look like? Does anyone have the right to tell you how your bride should look, act, talk, or think?
What does Christ's bride look like? Does anyone have the right to tell Jesus how His bride should look, act, talk, or think? The picture of the bride of Christ and how she should be was given to the apostle Paul via the church at Antioch as the New Testament church image he was to spread.
I believe the original plan is always the best. God's original plan for marriage was Adam & Eve. Do you think there is a better way for marriage than the original? more >>
