California Bans Gay Teen Conversion Therapy

Comments Off on California Bans Gay Teen Conversion Therapy

The government has no right to butt into parental rights, but it does it all the time and it’s getting worse. Government should refrain from interfering in private medical decisions between doctors and patients.

California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill banning mental therapy for minors struggling with gender confusion.

Beginning Jan. 1, therapists are prohibited from telling anyone under the age of 18 that it’s possible to change their sexual orientation.

According to Brown, the therapies “have no basis in science or medicine and they will now be relegated to the dustbin of quackery.”

(Speaking of “no basis in science” , watch the video below)

The move has sparked outrage from those who have undergone that therapy. Some say it helped them overcome same sex attraction sparked by childhood sexual abuse.

Conservative religious groups, like the organization Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays, argue the ban takes away parents’ rights to provide psychological care for confused children.

“As parents of gays and ex-gays, we are ashamed of your willingness to take action against parents, children, and the family in order to support gay activists,” the group wrote in an open letter to Democratic Sen. Ted Lieu, who authored the legislation.

“California is not a socialist state and our children do not belong to the government, subject to the ideology of the state over the objections of their parents,” the group said.

California is the first state to ban conversion therapy for teens.

Boston mayor’s letter to Chick-fil-A: Stay out of Boston!

Comments Off on Boston mayor’s letter to Chick-fil-A: Stay out of Boston!

I’ve got to ask…..just how ridiculous is this same sex, gay rights thing going to get. People have a right to disagree with things as this. The mayor of Boston must be out of his mind to run commerce out of his city. If the gays don’t like what Chick-fil-a is saying, then don’t patronize them, it’s that simple. Don’t demand they go against their concience. It’s obvious the gays aren’t willing to go against theirs, so why expect someone else to give in? Take your business elsewhere, punish them if you must that way. Your only hurting your cause this way.

Chick-Fil-A locator.

On the heels of Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s controversial public comments against same-sex marriage, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino fired off a letter to Cathy, urging him to abandon plans to expand the fast food chain to his city.

“In recent days you said Chick-fil-A opposes same-sex marriage and said the generation that supports it has ‘an arrogant attitude,'” Menino wrote in a letter dated July 20 and published online Wednesday. “Now—incredibly—your company says you are backing out of the same-sex marriage debate. I urge you to back out of your plans to locate in Boston.”

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'” Cathy said in a recent radio interview. “I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”

In an interview with the Baptist Press published last week, Cathy doubled down on his stance against same-sex unions.

“Guilty as charged,” Cathy said. “We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

“We know that it might not be popular with everyone,” he added, “but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

All 1,608 of Chick-fil-A’s restaurants are closed on Sundays, a day of rest for most Christians.

Comments Off on President Obama Ignores the Constitution: Again

Who does this president think he is? I’m losing count at the times he has ignored the Constitution or law. He ignored Judge Vinson with the declaring of Obamacare unconstitutional, the judge that said the moratorium on deep sea drilling was unconstitutional and something elese I can’t remember. Folks we’re in trouble when the commander in chief ignores the Constitution, he’s acting like a dictator that doesn’t have to obey the Constitution.

Obama declares Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional


The president orders the Department of Justice to stop defending Defense of Marriage Act in court

According to National Journal, President Obama has declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. The administration made the announcement a few minutes ago and will alert Congress later today:

“The President believes that DOMA is unconstitutional. They are no longer going to be defending the cases in the 1st and 2nd circuits,” a person briefed on the decision said.

Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed the report in a statement to the press:

After careful consideration, including a review of my recommendation, the President has concluded that given a number of factors, including a documented history of discrimination, classifications based on sexual orientation should be subject to a more heightened standard of scrutiny. The President has also concluded (not a court or judge as the Constitution calls for) that Section 3 of DOMA, as applied to legally married same-sex couples, fails to meet that standard and is therefore unconstitutional. Given that conclusion, the President has instructed the Department not to defend the statute in such cases. I fully concur with the President’s determination.

Iowa Voters Impeach Three Pro Gay Marriage Judges From Bench


All I can say is that it is about time something like this happened.  Not just on the same sex marriage issue, but other many issues as well when the judges go against what the people of that State have done. We have another good example today in Oklahoma where the Citizens voted against ever letting Sharia Law become law in their State. Today a Oklahoma Federal Judge put a stay on that vote becoming effective. If possible the State of Oklahoma should impeach that judge as soon as possible.  In this case it was a judicial retention election. Then the remaining judges will think twice before overturning what the majority of the Citizens voted into law. Chief Justice Marsha Ternus and justices David Baker and Michael Streit were voted off the bench in Tuesday’s election, creating multiple vacancies on the court for the first time since its inception.

Iowa Voters Impeach Three Pro Gay Marriage Judges From Bench

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich told a conference call for conservative Christian pastors Thursday that Iowans voting to oust three state Supreme Court justices over their 2009 ruling legalizing same-sex marriage was an example of voters “taking on the judicial class,” according to a report by People for the American Way.

Gingrich, while touting the massive Republican wins in Congress and state legislatures as profoundly historic, also called attention to the million-dollar Religious Right-led campaign that led to the rejection of three marriage equality-supporting Iowa Supreme Court justices in retention elections.  “Taking on the judicial class,” said Gingrich, and telling judges that “we are not going to tolerate enforced secularization of our country,” is “one of the most important things we can engage in.”

Gingrich, who is once again openly mulling a run for president, will return to Iowa later this month to speak at Iowa State University in Ames. He will discuss his new novel, “Valley Forge: A Story of Endurance and Transformation.” The Republican openly advocated for the judges to be removed from the bench, saying earlier this year that doing so “will send a signal to the whole country that there is a citizens revolt under way.”

Indy bakery could lose lease for turning away gays‎

Comments Off on Indy bakery could lose lease for turning away gays‎

This is getting absolutely ridiculous  when a business can’t decide who it wants to do business with itself instead of the City,county,State or Federal government telling them what to do with their own business. The City of Indianapolis is violating their own law about discriminating against religions.

Indy bakery could lose lease for turning away gays‎

An Indianapolis cookie shop could be evicted from its longtime location for refusing a special order from a college homosexual group.

Gay pride flagThe bakery “Just Cookies” has operated in a city-owned market for over 20 years. The president of the board that oversees the market told the Indianapolis Star that he would “hate to lose them” as a tenant — but that could very well happen because owner David Stockton took a moral stand and did not want to endorse homosexual activity.

Controversy arose this week after the owners of the bakery cited moral objections to a special-order request for rainbow-decorated cookies for next week’s “National Coming Out Day” observance at a nearby university campus. Stockton told the caller he did not feel comfortable in supporting homosexual values, especially because it would not set a good example for his two daughters.

Micah Clark of the American Family Association of Indiana says there are reports the city might evict Stockton, citing a local “anti-discrimination” statute.

“Indianapolis passed a sexual-orientation city ordinance five years ago,” Clark explains. “…We warned [at that time] that this type of thing would happen if they passed an ordinance elevating a sexual behavior to the same moral equivalent of race or skin color.”

Micah Clark (AFA of IN)Had the shop filled the special order, the owner felt he would be providing a microphone for homosexuals to celebrate their lifestyle. But there is another consideration, says Clark.

“If this were a Muslim-owned bakery, what would happen?” he wonders. “I don’t think the city would pursue it the way they’re pursuing it now. I think this is part of the liberal agenda where people must conform to the views that our culture wants in support of homosexuality.” (And Clark is probably correct about this)

In an interview with the Star, the AFA of Indiana spokesman argued for the rights of business owners. “It’s one thing if someone walks into a store and buys a cookie off the shelf, but [the Stocktons] were being asked to become part of the [pro-homosexual] celebration. To make rainbow cookies for a special event with which the company has a disagreement — I think that goes beyond the pale of what we should expect companies to do.”

Meanwhile, homosexual groups are circulating memos encouraging people to stop purchasing at Just Cookies. Clark’s response to that is to ask residents to do business there in support of the owners and their wholesome beliefs.

The Star reports the organizers of the homosexual celebration found another bakery to fill their order — “The Flying Cupcake.”

What a Coincidence: Federal Judge: Military’s ban on gays is unconstitutional

Comments Off on What a Coincidence: Federal Judge: Military’s ban on gays is unconstitutional

Well what do you know….President Obama and anyone else for doing away with “don’t ask, don’t tell” is now off the hook without affecting them politically and they didn’t have to vote on it either. After all these years of “Don’t Ask,Don’t Tell” being legal, all of a sudden now when they were wanting to get rid of it, but we getting a lot of flack about it, even from Military people. How convenient for them all…………...

Judge: Military’s ban on gays is unconstitutional

A federal judge on Thursday declared the U.S. military’s ban on openly gay service members unconstitutional and said she will issue an order to stop the government from enforcing the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy nationwide.

U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips said the ban violates the First and Fifth Amendment rights of gays and lesbians. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” prohibits the military from asking about the sexual orientation of service members but requires discharge of those who acknowledge being gay or are discovered engaging in homosexual activity, even in the privacy of their own homes off base.

In her ruling, Phillips said the policy doesn’t help military readiness and instead has a “direct and deleterious effect” on the armed services.

The Log Cabin Republicans, a 19,000-member group that includes current and former military members, filed a lawsuit in 2004 seeking an injunction to stop the ban’s enforcement. Phillips will draft the injunction with input from the group within a week, and the federal government will have a week to respond.

After-hours e-mails requesting comment from U.S. Department of Justice attorney Paul G. Freeborne and from the Pentagon were not immediately returned Thursday.

The lawsuit was the biggest legal test of the law in recent years and came amid promises by President Barack Obama that he will work to repeal the policy.

The Log Cabin Republicans said more than 13,500 service members have been fired since 1994.

“This decision will change the lives of many individuals who only wanted to serve their country bravely,” said the group’s attorney, Dan Woods.

Woods argued during the nonjury trial that the policy violates gay military members’ rights to free speech, open association and right to due process as guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment.

He said the ban damages the military by forcing it to reject talented people as the country struggles to find recruits in the midst of a war. Lawyers also submitted remarks by Obama stating “don’t ask, don’t tell” weakens national security.
