‘Alarming’ rise in STIs strongly linked to gay sex

NYC Pride Parade

“The increases in syphilis infections that we see across Europe, as well as other countries around the world, are a result of several factors such as people having sex without condoms and multiple sexual partners, combined with a reduced fear of acquiring HIV.”

(The Christian Institute)  The number of people in the UK with sexually transmitted diseases has risen rapidly in the last 10 years.

Cases of gonorrhea tripled between 2007 and 2017, while syphilis cases more than doubled over the same period of time.

The UK has the second highest rate of syphilis among men in Europe, and experts believe the rise is connected to homosexual sex. Continue reading

Klein v. Oregon: Religious Liberty & Freedom of Speech vs. Gay Rights

“The first basis for relief from the reach of the anti-discrimination laws is the claim that such laws violate the freedom of speech of the providers. At first blush, it may seem a stretch to regard baking a cake or arranging flowers as “speech.” However, federal Constitutional cases have long recognized that protecting speech is not limited to “the spoken or written word.” Engaging in conduct that expresses a point of view or idea is speech, and that expressive conduct is protected by the First Amendment.”  

(John A. Sparks – The Aquila Report)  Among recent actions by the U.S. Supreme Court, a four-sentence order may set the stage for the court to eventually address the collision between free speech and religious freedom on one hand and gay rights on the other…. Continue reading

Ben Carson Tells Tucker Carlson He Would Never Work for a Racist: ‘I Would Be Out of There in Two Seconds’

“I certainly have had an opportunity to see what racism is, you know, growing up in Detroit and the ’60s…this is a magnificent country, you know, where someone like me could grow up in poverty, become a brain surgeon [and then] a Cabinet member [for the president of the United States]. You know, why would anybody knock a place like that? And if it was such a bad place, people wouldn’t be forming caravans to come here.”

(Maureen Mackey – LifeZette)   Speaking on Wednesday evening to Fox News host Tucker Carlson on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Ben Carson, the secretary of Housing and Urban Development, said of President Donald Trump, “I’ve never seen any evidence of that [racism] whatsoever. Our conversations have frequently centered around disadvantaged people in our country and what we can do to elevate them.” Continue reading

LGBT asylum-seekers exempt from ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy and can stay in US

“A senior border official said there was no known written proof of the exemption and suggested it was intentionally withheld from documents so that the public did not learn about it. The official said the U.S. implemented the policy not because Mexico did not want to accept LGBT people but because that population would be at greater risk of personal harm if forced to remain in the country.”

(Anna Giaritelli – Washington Times)   Asylum-seekers who arrive at the southern border and claim to be LGBT are exempt from the U.S.-Mexico “Remain in Mexico” policy and will not be returned to Mexico to await decisions by U.S. immigration judges, several U.S. border officials told the Washington Examiner.

Newest target of Left is biggest one of all: your marriage

“Such a liberal view of sex and relationships didn’t happen overnight: the American Psychological Association was on board in the 1970s when the similarly named American Psychiatric Association, bowing to pressure, dropped homosexuality from its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. It had been included as a mental disorder in the very first DSM published in 1952.”

(Charlie Butts & Billy Davis – OneNews Now)  The professional association that bowed to pressure from homosexual activists during the 1970s is now advocating adultery among married couples. Continue reading

Petition Launched After Amazon Pulls a Number of Books About Leaving Homosexuality

Author Joe Dallas told The Christian Post that he believes the removals are a precursor of what is to come. “Amazon’s decision is no surprise since today’s culture is caving to the goals of the LGBTQ political movement, which have always included the silencing [of] any disapproval of homosexuality,” he said.

(Heather Clark – Christian News Network)  A petition has been launched after the popular marketplace site Amazon pulled a number of books on leaving homosexuality — some that could be considered “conversion therapy” books and others that were simply writings from those who were delivered from homosexuality by the power of Jesus Christ.

Drag Queen Story Hour is ‘Indoctrination’ of Children Into LGBTQ Culture

The left is willingly now putting these children in harm’s way. They are not telling them the health risks, the immense health risks of homosexual behavior. So many issues on just health alone, not to mention morality and where the souls of these children are headed, if they’re promoted into this sinful lifestyle.”

(Michael W. Chapman – CNSNews)  The spreading practice of men dressed in drag reading to very young children in public libraries — and in some Barnes & Noble book stores — is a way to “indoctrinate” kids into the LGBTQ world and imprint “perversion” in their young minds, said Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. He added that the entire experience is “like mental rape.” Continue reading

Fleeting Depiction of Lesbian Mothers in ‘Toy Story 4’ Characterized as Being ‘Subtle to Desensitize Children’

“Here was a major family-friendly film, one of the biggest Disney Pixar releases, and they included a lesbian couple with their son. It’s a small moment of normalization, even if it’s minor”

The Plan

“Led by Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, this plan has now been embraced by the Democratic Party.  Joe Biden gives lip service to parts of the plan but really doesn’t buy it.  Therefore, Biden must be destroyed by the cadres who endorse the plan.”  

(Bill O’Reilly)  You should know that some powerful people like radical leftwing billionaire George Soros, and others who believe as he does, have a plan for your life.

Of course, they would never state that plan, because many Americans would recoil from it…. Continue reading

Hispanic Pastors Tour Border Facility, Say They’re ‘Totally Baffled’ by Misinformation in News

Rodriguez is not the first Christian leader to push back against the media’s characterization of the situation along the U.S.-Mexico border.

(Tré Goins-Phillips – Faith Wire)   A delegation of Hispanic pastors, led by the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, toured a detention facility in El Paso, Texas, last week, and what they saw was “drastically different” from the media’s portrayal of the situation along the country’s southern border.

Gender Transition Clinic Sees Huge Spike in Children Under 14 Seeking Sex Change

“We know that compared to only 1% of the general population, around a third of young people treated at the Tavistock has an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis. A condition that is characterized by difficulties of social interaction. Vulnerable girls are being used by the transgender movement to destigmatize what is essentially a male sexual fetish.”

(Faith Wire – Will Maule)  A British gender clinic has reported a massive increase in the number of children seeking to transition from one sex to the other. The most significant surge in demand has come from young girls who are determined to transition to becoming males. Continue reading

Holocaust Survivor Nominates AOC for ‘Nobel Prize in Stupidity’

Mosberg, who lost his entire family during the Holocaust and himself survived both the Plaszów and Mauthausen camps, said: “Her statement is evil. It hurts a lot of people.

Progressive Sweetheart J.K. Rowling Attacked By SJWs Over Her ‘Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminism’

Social justice warriors were able to pull back the mask this week, though, after a Twitter account called “Trans Advocate” demonstrated that Rowling followed a number of “TERFs” on Twitter — or “trans-exclusionary radical feminists.”

(Emily Zanotti – Daily Wire)  It doesn’t matter how “woke” you are, you may never be woke enough for some progressives — a lesson “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling is apparently learning the hard way. Continue reading

NBC News analysis declares Donald Trump the winner of first Democratic debate

New York Post columnist John Podhoretz saw things similarly, taking particular issue with the candidates’ far-left push on immigration. He said the candidates “spent far more time talking about how they would help illegal immigrants than about how they would help the voters they most need to win over” and that will benefit Trump.

(Fox News) An NBC News analyst declared President Trump the winner of the first Democratic presidential debate of the 2020 election cycle.

Author and reporter Jonathan Allen expressed surprise that Trump emerged “largely unscathed” as the field of 10 candidates mostly avoided direct attacks on him. Continue reading

Hillsong ‘Worship’ Concert Includes Women on Stage, Writhing in Towels

“This is a video from Hillsong NYC (pastored by Carl Lentz) singing, “Praise the name of the Lord our God.” Hillsong NYC is the church whose worship team was lead by two famous celebrity gay boyfriends, which was at first denied by Lentz until Pulpit & Pen found a video of Hillsong guru Brian Houston admitting the NYC campus had homosexual worship leaders.”  

(Pulpit & Pen)  Video and freeze-frames from a recent Hillsong music conference reveal a dance number that includes women writhing about sexily in the near-nude, only covered by bath towels. This isn’t the first time that Hillsong has confused worship with flesh-peddling. Continue reading
