For some time now I've been saying that gay activists will overplay their hand and that the bullying will backfire. I've also said that we can outlast the gay revolution and ultimately, by God's grace, turn the moral tide in America.
Of course, to speak like that is to invite all kinds of scorn and ridicule, not to mention the ugliest death wishes you could imagine. How dare we not roll over and die!
But events from the last 7 days remind us that, even though the cultural battles promise to be long and difficult, many Americans are ready to push back. more >>
Prominent Evangelical and Catholic groups jointly warned that a proposed Department of Health and Human Services rule regarding abortion, gender identity and gay marriage could erode religious liberty.
The National Association of Evangelicals, Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Family Research Council, World Vision and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and other religious groups jointly submitted comments last week expressing concern that religious groups could be required to engage in actions contrary to their beliefs about abortion, gender identity or gay marriage.
Religious organizations could, for instance, be required to provide abortion referrals or coverage, pay for health costs related to gender transition, or hire, or not fire, someone in a same-sex relationship, even if those actions are antithetical to their beliefs. more >>

A commercial property located in Bryan-College Station that once housed a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic is now the home of a healthcare facility, pregnancy center and a pro-life organization.

Speaking to Roda Viva television in Brazil, author and social critic Camille Paglia criticized transgenderism, specifically the availability and popularity of sex-reassignment surgery.
"I think that the transgender propagandists make wildly inflated claims about the multiplicity of gender," Paglia asserted.
Lance Berkman, former Rice University and former Houston Astro star who was among the leaders of the successful efforts to defeat the controversial Houston "Equal Rights" Ordinance, or HERO, talked about personal attacks he received by the city's openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, following the vote.
"I didn't expect the mayor to make a personal attack," Berkman, who is now the head baseball coach at Second Baptist High School in Houston, said on KTRH 740 AM's "The Michael Berry Show." "I didn't expect her to talk about my girls or my family."
After the Tuesday's defeat of the ordinance, which would allow transgendered men to use women's bathrooms, Parker tweeted: "Lance Berkman played in St. Louis. Guess his girls didn't go to his games! SL has a non-discrimination ordinance." more >>
At a campaign town hall event at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire, Sen. Marco Rubio used a question on abortion from a reporter to focus on Hillary Clinton, claiming she is the one with "radical" positions.
Perhaps trying to show Rubio is out of step with voters on abortion, he was asked whether a fertilized egg should have legal protections, the candidate used the question as an opportunity to defend life and vigorously attacked the Democrat frontrunner.
"I don't know what you're talking — I believe all life is worthy of the protection of our laws. That's what I believe," declared Rubio. more >>
