  • “Tranny” gets college “Deplorable Radio” DJs yanked from live radio

    Student deejays of the “Deplorable Radio” show at University of Minnesota-Morris were shut down in mid programming this month after one said the word “tranny” on-air – a word the student program manager called a “hate slur” and a violation of FCC rules when barging into the studio with campus police to pull them off the air. The weekly radio show is now facing cancellation; however, school administrators are hard at work searching for a crime to blame for permanently pulling the show off the airwaves. As it turns out, the word “tranny” is not in violation of FCC rules...

    A U.K. Cardinal appointed by Pope Francis has given his blessing for a pro-homosexual organization to once again work in his archdiocese after his predecessor banned it because of its overt promotion of homosexual behavior contrary to Catholic teaching.  In a communication a little over a week ago to priests in the Archdiocese of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols recommended that they make use of the organization Quest to minister to “those who live with a same-sex attraction and are often very anxious about their journey to God and their relationship with the Church.” The letter was leaked to LifeSiteNews.  “Quest,...
  • ‘Proud’ [British PM] May Calls for Australia to Rush Through Same-Sex Marriage

    Prime Minister Theresa May has urged the Australian Government to introduce same-sex marriage “very soon”. Earlier this week the country voted to abandon the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman following a campaign of sustained abuse and threats of violence against ‘no’ voters. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has said he intends to make same-sex marriage “the law of the land by Christmas”. VoteA non-binding postal vote saw 61.6 per cent vote in favour of legalising same-sex marriage, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. More than 12.7 million people took part in answering the question:...

    A new report says the New York Police Department has not done enough to roll out protocols that govern interactions with the LGBTQ community. […] The revisions to the Patrol Guide were done in 2012 and made changes like requiring officers to address people who are arrested by their preferred name to prohibiting strip searches to determine gender. The report says the department does not currently track all LGBTQ-related complaints alleging bias by police officers. This makes it difficult to detect violations, and assess possible bias issues against the community. …

    BALTIMORE — Another federal judge has halted a proposed transgender military ban, expanding on an initial ruling issued last month against the plan by President Donald Trump's administration. In a preliminary injunction issued Tuesday in Baltimore, U.S. District Judge Marvin Garbis ruled that transgender service members have "demonstrated that they are already suffering harmful consequences" due to the proposed ban including threat of discharge, stigma and the cancellation or delay of surgeries related to their gender transitions. The six plaintiffs in the lawsuit he reviewed have all been receiving hormone therapy. In a strongly-worded passage from his 53-page decision, Garbis...

    A progressive evangelical pastor whose 2015 pro-gay marriage announcement led to a steep decline in his church's membership now says that he believes he should have given his church more input on the announcement than he did. Pastor Stan Mitchell, founder and head of the Nashville area-based GracePointe Church, garnered national headlines in early 2015 when he said that his church would support and recognize gay marriages. Since the announcement, GracePointe has seen a steep decline in worship attendance, membership and financial giving. In an interview with The Christian Post on Thursday, Mitchell explained that he felt his position of...

    Felix Ngole was thrown off his social work course because of his beliefs on marriage. The message for Christians is starkFelix Ngole is a Christian who was thrown off a social work course at Sheffield University because he wrote on Facebook in 2015 that he supported the Kentucky registrar who had refused to handle gay marriages and provided a link to a biblical quotation. He lost an appeal that his rights to freedom of speech and thought had been breached. University bosses told the court that the issue was his “fitness to practise”. That should worry us, for it implies...

    A federal jury has awarded a transgender woman more than $1 million after finding Southeastern Oklahoma State University discriminated against her and wrongfully denied her tenure. Jurors sided with former English professor Rachel Tudor on Monday, The Oklahoman newspaper reported. Her lawsuit alleged the university treated her differently than non-transgender professors, including by subjecting her to unfair rules about bathroom use and what she could wear on campus. “I tried not to make a big deal of it. I just wanted to do my job,” Tudor testified during the trial. Tudor also alleged the school’s tenure committee voted in favor...

    A federal judge in Maryland became the second to block the Trump administration’s proposal to oust transgender service members from the military — but went a step further than the prior ruling and halted a directive for the Pentagon to stop paying for gender-reassignment treatments. The preliminary injunction issued Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis comes after the prior ruling out of D.C. found that the policy banning transgender troops creates an “inherent inequality” that likely violates the Constitution. Judge Garbis wrote in his 53-page order that transgender military members who filed suit over the proposal had established...

    A group of prominent U.S. senators is coming to the defense of a highly decorated Air Force colonel who could be booted out of the military over his religious views on same-sex marriage. Col. Leland Bohannon, an experienced combat pilot, was suspended from command and orders were handed down recommending he not be promoted after he refused to publicly affirm the same-sex spouse of a retiring subordinate. Bohannon, who was on the verge of being promoted to a one-star general, was punished after the subordinate filed a formal Equal Opportunity complaint which was later substantiated by investigators. “His career is...

What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago. I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea...

    Militant snowflakes at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia did their part to combat what they called “violence” by shredding other people’s signs at a free speech event: The signs contained messages such as, “Abortion is murder #DefundPlannedParenthood,” “There are only two genders,” and “The gender wage gap, Harry Potter, Both Fantasy.” Javid Ona, president of the College Libertarians at KSU, told Campus Reform that the signs were posted by individuals as part of a free speech event and did not necessarily represent the views of all the groups involved, noting that there were “groups from across the political spectrum.”...
