A Christian family-owned and operated bridal shop in Pennsylvania is now facing the wrath of gay rights advocates for refusing to provide service to a lesbian couple seeking to get married because it "would break God's law."
A report from PA homepage said the incident was first publicized in a Facebook post by an unidentified woman who claims the bridal shop, W.W. Bridal Boutique in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, denied her service because she is preparing to marry her lesbian lover.
W. W. Bridal Boutique is currently open by appointments only, according to their website. In her Facebook status, the woman claims that when she tried to make an appointment, an employee at the boutique told her: "Unfortunately, she would not be able to schedule an appointment for them because they currently do not service same-sex couples – it's just not something they do." more >>
A design for a National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Veterans Memorial at the Congressional Cemetery has been recently unveiled.
The memorial's design was revealed earlier this month and is slated to be put in an area of the cemetery known as the "gay corner."
Paul K. Williams, president of the Historic Congressional Cemetery, which operates the cemetery, told The Christian Post about the history of the memorial project and the NLGBTVM project group's purchasing of land for the effort. more >>
In 1964 Bob Dylan wrote the amazing classic tune, "The Times They Are a Changing". Some of the words went like this:
"The line it is drawn The curse it is cast The slow one now Will later be fast… Rapidly fadin' And the first one now Will later be last For the times they are a-changin'."
Fifty years after Dylan's riveting verses, special interest groups' claims about both the nature and dynamics of marriage are changing more dramatically than any of the social phenomenon of the 60's. For years, the argument for deeply altering an ancient institution was framed entirely in terms of individual "rights." We were told homosexuals possessed an inherent right to have their relationships deemed "marriage," end of story. more >>
New survey research shows that Christians who support same-sex marriage are more likely to hold permissive views on other sexual morality issues, such as divorce and pornography, similar to the general population and far different from Christians who support traditional marriage.
The "Relationships in America" survey, conducted by University of Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus, interviewed 15,738 Americans between the ages of 18 and 60. From that sample, Regnerus compared the average views on a range of sexual morality issues of churchgoing Christians who oppose same-sex marriage (2,659 in the sample) and churchgoing Christians who support same-sex marriage (990 in the sample).
A judge has ruled that Tennessee's constitutional amendment banning legal recognition of same-sex marriage is legal, breaking a streak of judicial losses for the traditional marriage side.
Circuit Court Judge Russell E. Simmons Jr. ruled last week against the claim that the state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage violates the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
Over the last few days I've written a couple of columns such as, Parents of Gay Kids, Stop Beating Yourself Up, It's Not Your Fault and Why I Hate The Word Gay, But Still Use It.
I'm not surprised that there are a lot of people out there that have incredibly different views than the ones I express in my columns…. because I used to have incredibly different views than ones I express in these columns. Five years ago I scoffed at the (then to me) laughably ludicrous idea of homosexual behavior being sinful. But now my views have changed. My perceptions of sexuality, ultimate authority (it belongs to God, not me) and reality have changed.
I woke up this morning to some tweets bashing me and my beliefs… again. According to some of the gay bloggers and editors of other gay publishing outlets I'm an "Anti-gay-but-still-gay, self hating, internalizing homophobe that listens to QUEEN." more >>
