After initially canceling his upcoming speech on leadership, a Michigan high school has reversed its decision and has announced that it will allow former Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) to speak to students on campus on April 24.
"After pressure from students, parents, and local community leaders, the Grosse Pointe Public School System has decided to reverse their decision and allow Senator Rick Santorum to speak to the students of Grosse Pointe South High School," the Young America's Foundation, the umbrella group which oversees the Young Americans for Freedom group, a conservative, student-run group at Grosse Point South Public High School in Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., said in a statement.
The high school's Young Americans for Freedom group was the first to organize Santorum's upcoming speech at the school. more >>
If this summer's actions by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) reclassify same sex marriage as a civil right, the homosexual lifestyle will have become the norm for American civilization, in spite of the fact that for thousands of years marriage has traditionally been only between a man and a woman.
This reclassification may work for a small minority of people, but it won't work for society in general. If it were such a good idea, America's citizens would be able to freely participate in the gay life style without doing harm to themselves and to society. Evil is more than ignorance; when a court is most convinced that it is doing well is when it is most susceptible to doing harm. Someone who prefers to live the same sex lifestyle is not just an American who wants to be treated like everyone else. Homosexuals want to fundamentally change American society and the heterosexual way of life.
If every American adopted this kind of lifestyle, a hundred years from now America would cease to exist, because during that period no children would be born. Should SCOTUS actually declare homosexuality a civil right, it logically follows that polygamy, pedophilia and bestiality would one day also be declared a civil right by the Court. In spite of society's thirst for more modernism, inclusiveness and diversity, who would want to live in the midst of such moral depravity? more >>
Following the recent decisions of two GOP senators to change their position in support of same-sex marriage, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) said in recent interview that it would be "suicidal" for the Republican Party to change its platform regarding same-sex marriage.
Santorum argued in a recent interview that this is not the first time the media and the public have hinted at the Republican Party changing positions on some social issues, and that ultimately the fervor around same-sex marriage will die out.
The former senator, who also ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, said that although he recognizes an "increasing mood" for the support of same-sex marriage, he believes the sentiment "is not a well thought-out position by the American public." more >>
NEW YORK – David Blankenhorn, who testified as an expert witness on marriage during California's Proposition 8 case (Perry v. Schwarzenegger), surprised supporters when he revealed in a New York Times op-ed last year his radical shift to affirming homosexuality and advocating for same-sex marriage. Blankenhorn discussed Monday evening at The King's College in New York City some of the factors that contributed to his change positioned.
"I said that I changed my position on the issue, and I think that it's very hard to know why one does something of that nature. You'd think it would be simple for you to know how it all came about," Blankenhorn said of his about-face on homosexuality and same-sex marriage. "I still think an awful lot about it and I'm still working through [it]."
He added, "If I had to put it simply, I would say there were two reasons. One was the question of fairness. There are … we have this relatively small number of fellow citizens who are homosexuals, they may be 4 percent of the population. What they are essentially doing, I came to see, is saying they want to be accepted into the mainstream of American life without the stigma and in some respects the criminalization that they have endured historically. They want to be accepted into the mainstream, and I believe they should be accepted because I believe homosexual conduct is benign and I don't believe criminalizing it or stigmatizing it is the right thing to do." more >>
Jewish and Christian students of the Bible have been given a detailed historical timeline in Scripture. We know that God created Adam and Eve about 6000 years ago. The biblical timeline reveals that Noah was born roughly 1000 years later. Abraham was born close to 1000 years after Noah. David was born around 1000 years after Abraham. And Jesus was born close to 1000 years after David. Christ's miraculous birth took place roughly 2000 years ago, which was about 4000 years after God created Adam and Eve. Do the math. It is laid out clearly in God's Word.
When God created man and woman, He made them equal. He created them to be incredibly satisfied with one another. He created them to produce children. That's why a man and a woman can "make a baby." Two men can't do that, and neither can two women. Two men are not equal. They are simply homogeneous. Two women are not equal. They too are simply homogeneous. Marriage equality is defined by God as a man and a woman who are equal before Him and with one another. It really is a beautiful thing the way these two beings complement each other.
When Adam and Eve chose to sin, it brought all sorts of wrong desires into the heart of man. Some of these impure desires fall in the realm of sexuality, such as tendencies toward fornication, adultery, and homosexuality. We are all sinners. In that sense, we all have a "sinner equality." We all far short of God's standard. Some people struggle with a short temper. Others struggle with jealousy. Still others struggle with greed. And some struggle with fornication or some other sexual temptation. But we all are guilty. We all need God's forgiveness. more >>
Dr. Ben Carson, director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md., maintained his opposition to same-sex marriage this past Friday, but also apologized for previous comments he made on the subject, which Carson argues were misinterpreted by many as comparing same-sex marriage to bestiality or pedophilia.
Carson offered a "sincere and heartfelt" apology for his previous comments in a Friday email reportedly addressed to the Johns Hopkins community.
