The left and LGBT advocates don’t want real tolerance. They want compliance and they will bully you in order to get it or to make you pay.
The Supreme Court of the United States announced Friday to take up two cases related to same-sex marriage. A mixed result for both sides is likely.
That is basically the meme in the media over the past couple of days in response to liberal group Human Rights Campaign leaking an internal memo from the National Organization for Marriage. One of the memos read… The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks — two key Democratic […]
Yes the robed masters in San Francisco, CA know best, seven million California voters are obviously a bunch of irrational bigots. Oh brother, today’s 2-1 ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court demonstrates that as far as the activist judiciary is concerned democracy is dead; oligarchy reigns. In their arrogance they believe they make the law. […]
Even though Governor Schwarzennegger wanted homosexuals to begin marrying right after Federal District court Judge Vaughn Walker declared California’s Constitutional amendment defining marriage to be between a man and a woman unconstitutional. Yesterday a panel of three judges in the 9th Circuit Court said no licenses can be issued to homosexuals while the decision is […]
Matthew Franck writing at Public Discourse made an excellent point about the bad logic that U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker used in his ruling against California’s Proposition 8. Franck notes: Perhaps the most surprising thing in the judge’s opinion is his declaration that “gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage.” This line, […]
Following up my earlier post on this as I have some additional thoughts. There are a number of frustrating things outside of Judge Vaughn Walker’s arrogance in ruling against California’s Proposition 8 which amended the California State Constitution to state in Article I, Section 7.5 that only marriage between a man and a woman is […]
We have reached a crossroads. Now lone unelected, unaccountable judges think they can overrule the will of the voters. The Los Angeles Times reports that U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled California’s Proposition 8, a ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional: A federal judge declared California’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional Wednesday, saying that no legitimate […]
I can’t say I know much about President Obama’s second nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, but from what I can see so far, it could have been worse. Appointing Solicitor General Elena Kagan as William Saunders in his earlier review of potential nominees said: She was recently dean of the Harvard Law School, where […]
1. “On Victimization as Racism” by Collin Brendemuehl It comes in multiple forms. It comes on all sorts of colors (pun not intended). And sometimes it hides against the wallpaper and is difficult to discern. But it is there and it haunts humanity like the Predator hunted down Arnold. It is racism. Caleb Rosado notes […]
1. “We Call It Religious Freedom” by Chuck Colson It seems one man’s religious freedom is another man’s “ridiculous prejudice.” One government official fumed that Catholic doctors were refusing to perform abortions—abortions that were perfectly legal. He wrote in a memo: “After all, these scruples are in most cases nothing but ridiculous prejudices . . […]
Carrie Prejean’s pastor, Miles McPherson, pastor of The Rock Church in San Diego was on the O’Reilly Factor last night discussing Carrie Prejean’s answer to Perez Hilton and gay marriage. Talking about the gay marriage position being compared to the civil rights struggle. Money quote: “I find it very offensive that somebody would equate […]
I’ve been debating whether or not to post on this, but it really has been bothering me the more I hear about it. I believe in the freedom of speech, and the right to protest. I understand completely why members of the homosexual community and other supporters of same-sex marriage wanted to protest in light […]
Mollie Hemingway made some great points the other day about why changing the legal definition of marriage matters. I thought I’d throw her thoughts in the mix following up on my post yesterday. Marriage — for whatever reason or variety of reasons — has been the means throughout the world for insuring that fathers stick […]
There’s been wide-ranging reaction to California’s proposition 8 being passed with overrules the California Supreme Court by providing state constitutional protections for traditional marriage. Similar measures were passed in Arizona and in Florida, both by a wider margin than California. I think for some in the homosexual community this isn’t just about “civil rights” (one […]
