Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine has elicited a strong response from his bishop for his comments suggesting the Catholic church will eventually recognize same-sex marriage, and a prominent Catholic scholar is also disputing his words.
Giving the keynote address to a group of approximately 3,700 at the 20th Annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington, D.C. Sunday, the U.S. Senator from Virginia expressed his "full, complete, unconditional support for marriage equality." Although he acknowledged his stance "is at odds with the current doctrine of the church that I still attend ... I think that's going to change, too."
Although the press frequently describes Kaine as a "devout" Roman Catholic, Mary Hasson, director of the Catholic Women's Forum at the Washington-based Ethics and Public Policy Center believes that is an adjective the media "particularly likes to attach to Catholic politicians who loudly disagree with the Church on matters of sexual morality." more >>
Churches are "by and large" exempted from the LGBT public accommodation mandates of a new Massachusetts law, according to a state government commission.
In July, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker signed into law Senate Bill 2407, which among other things allows transgender men to use women's restrooms in places of public accommodation and requires employers to use the preferred pronouns of their employees.
The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination emailed The Christian Post some comments about the new law, which has garnered concern from some that it violates the religious liberty of churches who hold events open to the general public. more >>
In defiance of nature and centuries of accepted wisdom, scientists from a leading university in the United Kingdom unveiled new research on Tuesday suggesting that in the distant future two men could come together to make a baby and eliminate the need for eggs from women.
Department of Biology & Biochemistry scientists at the University of Bath announced that they have developed a method of injecting mouse parthenogenotes with sperm that allows them to become healthy baby mice with a success rate of up to 24 percent.

The American Family Association is praising Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for urging Target to re-examine its controversial transgender bathroom policies after a second man was caught recording women undressing in changing rooms.
"After this latest incident, I hope Target finally recognizes the importance of protecting its customers, especially in environments where they can be at their most vulnerable. I am offering them the resources of my office to help assist them in improving their safety procedures," Paxton said in a message to Target last Friday.
Paxton was referring to police reports searching for a man who peered over a changing room wall with a cellphone at a Target store on Northwest Highway at Abrams. It is the second such incident reported, after a similar crime occurred back in May at a Target store in Frisco, Texas. more >>
The Benham brothers say that the National Collegiate Athletic Association is being used by LGBT activists and champions of the sexual revolution to facilitate a moral revolution in America.
After the NCAA announced on Monday that it pulled seven championship events scheduled for this year and next from North Carolina over its opposition to the state's bathroom law that requires transgender individuals to use restrooms and changing areas designated for their birth sex, residents Jason and David Benham spoke with The Christian Post over the phone to give their response to that decision.
The Benham brothers, popular Christian conservative real estate entrepreneurs who had their HGTV show cancelled because of their opposition to gay marriage, said the negative reaction the state has received to H.B. 2 from major national organizations and entertainers like the NCAA, NBA and Bruce Springsteen is all part of the far-left's three-step process to overtake America with a "radical revolution." more >>
Virginia's highest court has agreed to take up a lawsuit against a school board over its decision to add sexual orientation and gender identity to its antidiscrimination policy.
