Planet Fitness has revoked a Michigan woman's gym membership because she filed a complaint with the company after seeing a man walk into the women's locker room. The national franchise said the woman is now banned from the chain on the grounds that she violated the company's "judgement free" conduct policy.
Yvette Cormier, who was a member at the Midland, Michigan, Planet Fitness location, told CBS affiliate WNEM about how she lost her membership after voicing her safety concerns when a man walked into the women's locker room as she was getting undressed.
"I was stunned and shocked. He totally looked like a man. He was not dressed like a woman at all," Cormier recalled. "This is very unprofessional and very scary." more >>
U.S. Senator from Kentucky and possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul said he is "offended" by defining gay relationships with the term "marriage."
The self-described "libertarian conservative" talked with Fox News' Bret Baier in a Sunday interview about the debate over marriage definition in America.
I would love to go a month – or even a week – without having to address this, but the cycle of social madness continues unabated, all centered on the "T" of LGBT, namely, transgender.
To repeat what I have said many times before, I have compassion for those who struggle with their gender identity, and we should do whatever we can to help them find wholeness from the inside out (in other words, working to help them be at home in their bodies without having to undergo radical surgery and be on hormones for life).
At the same time, we cannot impose the struggles of an extremely tiny minority (estimated at 3 per 1,000 people) on society as a whole. more >>
To those of you who continue to engage in a homosexual lifestyle,
We are your fellow sinners and no better than you. We know this. We are saved from eternal torment, self-wrought, by the grace of Christ alone. If you are an unrepentant, "out and proud" homosexual practitioner, then you are not. It is our deepest prayer that you, too, will accept the free gift of eternal salvation, repent and "go and sin no more."
The alternative is a living hell. more >>
As predicted by many, it has happened, the world's first three-way gay marriage. In Thailand, three gay men, known only as Art, Bell and Joke, exchanged marital vows in a wedding sanctioned by the Buddhist church, but not by the government, which officially forbids same sex marriage. While the announcement was just made public, the trio married on Valentine's Day in the country's Uthai Thani Province. According to Bell, "Some people may not agree and are probably amazed by our decision, but we believe many people do understand and accept our choice. Love is love, after all."
Unfortunately, Bell, along with advocates of same sex marriage, has a misguided view of marriage. As noted by Brian Brown, President of the National Association of Marriage, it is "an institution that serves to bind the complementary halves of humanity — male and female — in a publicly declared relationship that is designed to be stable, permanent, exclusive and faithful." Brown believes the main reason why men and women come "together in holiday matrimony" is that this sacred union "offers the potential for children... and children are why the government is interested in marriage in the first place."
Sorry, Bell, the institution of marriage is not just about love. Marriage has throughout human history been the best method to not only unite couples together, but also to propagate our species. Advocates of same sex marriage are making a mockery of this precious institution and opening the door for even more creative interpretations such as three-way unions. more >>
