Marriage up for Re-Election in Ohio in 2014

Fortunately for us, the founding fathers did not give God term limits or make religious liberty stand for re-election every two years. Nevertheless, same-sex marriage advocates in Ohio are campaigning for signatures to put marriage on the ballot once again even though the question was settled decisively in 2004, by a margin of 62% in favor to 38% against the traditional and longstanding definition...

The Supreme Court Chases Rainbows

For all the pomp and protests, the Supreme Court’s decisions today in Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor have not changed anything. The supreme majesty of the Universe and the orbits of the celestial spheres are unmoved from their appointed courses. The sun and the moon still shine. The grass is green and the sea is blue. The laws of physics remain inviolate. God’s covenants w... More

Christ Didn’t Tell the Woman at the Well: “Go and Get Plan B”

After relentless and vociferous criticism from feminist organizations, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius has abandoned her opposition to the over-the-counter sale to minors of the so-called “Plan B” contraception pill which can also be used to cause the abortion of a fertilized egg.

Delaware and Rhode Island Substitute Human Folly for God’s Ageless Wisdom

UPDATE: Columbus Diocese Remains Resolute, Lesbian Teacher Basks in Spotlight

The Columbus Dispatch reports that after meeting with the principal of Bishop Watterson High School, Carla Hale gave a press conference to her fawning supporters in the media vowing to “continue her fight” against the Catholic Church.

In a statement that should come as a shock to exactly nobody who understands the real agenda behind gay marriage, lesbian author, journalist and gay rights activist Masha Gessen lays out the real plan behind the push for “marriage equality” (emphasis added): “It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-bra...
