Since some people go into prison straight and come out gay, homosexuality must be a choice, neurosurgeon and potential presidential candidate Ben Carson told CNN Wednesday.
"New Day" host Chris Cuomo agreed that prison makes some people gay, but disgreed that that fact supports Carson's view that gay is a choice.
Carson was responding to a line of questioning about gay marriage. Cuomo was implicitly making the argument, often heard by same-sex marriage supporters, that denying same-sex couples a marriage license is akin to racism, and that the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, written to give former slaves equal rights, requires the redefinition of marriage. more >>
Alabama's highest court ordered probate judges in the state to cease issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, defying a federal court decision.
In a 7 to 1 ruling made Tuesday, Alabama's supreme court concluded that the a recent ruling by a federal judge and the refusal of the Supreme Court to grant a stay in said ruling were not to be honored.
Two Supreme Court justices who officiated gay weddings don't need to recuse themselves from an upcoming case where they'll be ruling on the legality of state level gay marriage bans, despite demands from social conservative groups that they "disqualify" themselves, according to legal experts.
In April, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in an appeal from the Sixth Circuit regarding the constitutionality of state constitutional bans on same-sex marriage.
Calls have been made by some conservative groups for Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg to recuse themselves from the case because they've officiated gay weddings. more >>
An Indiana bakery, 111 Cakery, that drew protests last year after the business' Christian owners declined a request from a gay man to make a cake for his same-sex wedding, has decided to close shop for good.
"We have decided not to renew our lease so we are now closed. We want to thank everyone for your patronage, support and friendship. It has been a true pleasure to serve you. Eph 2:8," notes a message on the bakery's website.
Randy McGath, 48, who co-own's the bakery, told USA Today that the business was still profitable but his wife, Trish, 45, who did most of the baking, wanted to spend more time with their four grandchildren. more >>
National Harbor, Md. — Two marriage experts argued that feminism and gay rights are contributing to the problem of fatherlessness at a Conservative Political Action Conference panel.
Father's Day may one day be considered hate speech because saying that children need fathers has become offensive to the gay rights agenda, Heather Mac Donald, the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal, argued on the Friday panel, "The Future of Marriage in America."
The panel was moderated by Kate Bryan of the American Principles Project. Mac Donald was joined by Wade Horn, former assistant secretary for Children and Families, and Jennifer Marshall, vice president of the Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity at The Heritage Foundation. more >>
In 2007, and with that same nauseating arrogance that has come to define him, then presidential candidate Barack Obama duplicitously quipped, "I am absolutely convinced that culture wars are just so '90s. Their days are growing dark."
Dark, indeed. America's soon-to-be cultural-Marxist-in-chief would then spend the greater part of a decade waging war against our nation's Judeo-Christian culture and heritage at levels, and in ways, unseen in our storied history. Today, his anti-Christian crusade continues unabated. In fact, and with less than two years left to complete his baleful conspiracy, this neo-pagan extremist has begun to rapidly accelerate his unravelings.
Chief among his targets for destruction are conservative and Christian organizations and individuals who pose a threat to his envisaged "fundamental transformation" of our once-Judeo-Christian nation. What do I believe the Obama vision look like? A godless, Euro-socialist dystopia crafted in his own secular-humanist self-image. more >>
