The Gay Attack on American Values By Alan Caruba

AA - Gay Pride Parade

In societies around the world, homosexuals encounter not just resistance, but the threat of death for their sexual orientation. In the West we regard this as barbarian and it is. I concluded long ago that gays—using their own term—have no choice over this sexual aberration from the norm of heterosexuality.

In America, gays—male and female homosexuals—represent about 3% of the population. That leaves 97% in a majority and that majority is now under a full assault on their traditional values concerning marriage—intended only for the opposite sexes—and in some cases on their religious faith that deems homosexuality a sin.

In recent years we have seen gays achieve a legal status for same-sex marriage, thus undermining centuries of tradition that understands marriage to be for the purpose of procreation and as the keystone of society. We have a President who changed his mind from his 2008 political campaign and announced that he not only approved of gay marriage but that his administration, the Department of Justice, would not enforce the Defense of Marriage law passed by Congress.

The Obama administration has pressed hard to alter the military that went from “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” under the Clinton administration, to the present status that sees no problem in the close living conditions under which heterosexual and homosexual troops must live and work together. This was always regarded as a problem of unit cohesion in the long years leading up to the 1990s and it likely still is. In a similar fashion, the infusion of women into combat units poses problems that the military understandably avoided for most of the last two hundred and twenty-eight years of the nation’s history.

The passage of Obamacare has posed significant problems for religious groups that oppose abortion and related practices. It has particularly affected Catholic institutions and, most recently, the Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of nuns who do not want to signal any concurrence with the law as it is written. The Supreme Court has granted that some respite, but their issue and others will surely have to be addressed by the Court at some point.

In Massachusetts, a homosexual legal group has filed papers to force a Catholic school to hire a man who is “married” to another man. As reported by MassResistance.org, “Back in July, Matthew Barrett of Dorchester applied for a job as the food service director at Fontbonne Academy, a Roman Catholic girls’ high school in Milton, Mass, and was subsequently offered the job. When he filled out a pre-employment form listing his ‘husband’ as an emergency contact the school told him that ‘the Catholic religion doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage. We cannot hire you.’”

“Barratt claimed to be shocked by the school’s action,” noted MassResistance, “But it appears that he was purposefully dishonest. He told the Boston Globe that he was raised a Catholic and that he was informed by school officials during the interview process that employees are expected to follow Catholic doctrine. However, he did not tell the school that he was openly involved with homosexual behavior and was in a ‘gay marriage.’”

MassResistance regards the case as “the beginning of the homosexual movement’s legal assault on conservative churches, particularly Catholic, that have steadfastly refused to modify their religious convictions and comply with the homosexual movement’s demands on society. Up until now they’ve been largely left alone. But that is about to change.”

As the Boston Globe noted, “Barrett’s complaint, which may be the first of its kind in the country, comes at a time when religion-based schools in the increasing number of states where gay marriage is legal have been scrutinizing hiring and firing practices to ensure they conform with the pillars of their faiths”

“School administrators,” the Globe reported, “have been fired from Catholic schools and universities in Arkansas, California, New York, and Washington, among other states, after marrying their same-sex partners or announcing plans to do so.”

Bennett Klein, the lawyer for the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) filed a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination, asserts that “Our laws carefully balance the important values of religious liberty and non-discrimination. When Fontbonne Academy fired Matt from a job that has nothing to do with religion, they came down on the wrong side of the law.” It has everything to do with the free practice of religion.

“We’re seeing religion-affiliated entities more and more trying to push the line toward discriminating against gay, lesbian, and transgendered people,” said Klein.

No, it is the homosexuals who are pushing the line against religious groups who believe that their belief in God and their faith precludes the destruction of the construct of marriage is a sin against mankind and society.

It is 3% of the population demanding that 97% toss aside their faith and their values to accommodate the aberration called homosexuality. And, yes, it is an aberration because homosexuality cannot be interpreted as “normal” in any species.

MassResistance correctly says “This is madness and should not have any legal leg to stand on.”

If the homosexual assault on values and practices that have existed for centuries in the Catholic Church and in other religious faiths succeeds, the whole of our society will suffer for it. The Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion—murder—has resulted in the deaths of millions of unborn children who had a right to life.

Now, in Massachusetts and other States where same-sex marriage is deemed to be legal, the whole of the nation’s defense of marriage is under assault.

A Smoking Gun Memo And One Sorry Apology From The IRS

Scandal: As a new IRS boss vows that targeting the right will never happen again, a new memo shows the agency knew its acts were illegal but proceeded anyway. Seems there’s more than a “smidgen” of corruption here.

Smoking Gun Memo On The Tea Party And One Sorry Apology From The IRS

Just the apology offered by John Koskinen, the new commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, to reporters after a House Ways and Means hearing belied President Obama’s claim over the weekend that the agency was simon-pure.

Singling out organizations such as the Tea Party was “intolerable,” he intoned, and “to the extent that people suffered accordingly, I apologize for that.”

So if there wasn’t “even a smidgen of corruption,” as our president insisted, why the apology?

The answer can be found in a memo unearthed at the House committee hearing, showing that the IRS targeted the Tea Party, knew the action was illegal and tried to cover it up with new regulations that would silence the conservative group once and for all.

Terrorist Threat To U.S. Power Grid Grows

War On Terror: New information about a sniper assault on Silicon Valley’s phone lines and power grid has raised fears that the nation’s power grid is vulnerable to terrorism.

The prospect that the unsolved attack on an electrical substation near San Jose just hours after the Boston Marathon bombing in April could have been a terrorist act was raised anew last week by Jon Wellinghoff, former chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

“This is the most sophisticated and extensive attack that’s ever occurred on the grid to my knowledge,” he told the Associated Press, contradicting FBI denials that terrorism was involved. “I don’t know what the definition of terrorism is other than when an extremely well-trained group attacks a major piece of infrastructure in an expertly planned attack.”

Wellinghoff also mused recently that the attack might have been a dress rehearsal for a more widespread attack on a national grid vulnerable to disruption. “There are ways that a very few number of actors with very rudimentary equipment could take down large portions of our grid,” he told Foreign Policy. “I don’t think we have the level of physical security we need.”

An attack by intruders with guns and rifles could be just as devastating as any cyberattack, he said.

Who is Trey Gowdy? By the Bear

I had this video online a couple of weeks ago and now it has gone viral on the internet. Gowdy is a member of the House of Representatives from North Carolina (R), first elected in 2011 and I have included his bio below.

Even if you have seen the video before, I ask to watch it again because I think we have the makings here of someone extra special.

Watch his delivery as a speaker, watch his mannerisms and see if he means what he says and his final walk off delivers a message that words cannot express.

Gowdy has already made his mark in Congress and left his footprints on the backside of many in the elite class.

Gowdy is a up and comer, and if he doesn’t trip along the way he should be a factor in the Republican Party.

Breaking News: A Penis Is No Longer A Male Part By Bill Zeiser

In the landmark abortion case Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his opinion, “at the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life…” In other words, life is all about the quest to craft your own distinct identity. This viewpoint nicely sums up the approach of many contemporary liberals. The problem is that this sort of thinking can cause you to paint yourself into some pretty tight corners. A vivid illustration of this danger is the Salon.com piece entitled “The fight over the ‘v’ word.”
