Kim Davis Vs the Modern Left, Compare and Contrast

As I've been watching the left continue its violent push to make the rest of us comply with their demands and the craziness of their Kavanaugh stuff to the point where we actually had a Democrat editor justifying the shooting of Steve Scalise as the natural consequence of his votes. When a politician opposes all reasonable … Continue reading Kim Davis Vs the Modern Left, Compare and Contrast

The #Unexpectedly Chronicles Media/Left Suddenly Not Quoting Pope Francis

If there has been one constant in the last few years it has been the media/left rushing to quote Pope Francis on the subject of migration, on wealth and, out of context, on our duties to our fellow man who happens to be gay.

It’s Not About the Cake

In Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court, relying on little more than the majority’s “reasoned judgement” that “liberty” as mentioned in the Fourteenth Amendment somehow encompasses the dignity of same-sex couples, created a right to same-sex marriage. As the case was being deliberated, traditional marriage supporters, including me, were concerned that creating such a right … Continue reading It’s Not About the Cake

For Islamists in the West On Gay Marriage Silence is Golden for Now

One of the things I've written about in the past is the willingness of the left to ignore Islam's positions on Homosexuality and Gay Marriage, apparently a big part of it, at least in Australia is tactical: Last night on ABC's The Drum, Ali Kadri, spokesman for the Islamic Council of Queensland and the Australian … Continue reading For Islamists in the West On Gay Marriage Silence is Golden for Now

A Quick Reminder of How We got to Transgender Toddlers Stories

Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Gay Marriage and Top 3 Issues

Mike Huckabee is trying to make hay of Ted Cruz's statement that Gay Marriage is not a top three issue for him.  He's pretending that Cruz doesn't think the issue is important even though Ted Cruz was the only other GOP candidate who was there for the Rally for Kim Davis and it was only a … Continue reading Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Gay Marriage and Top 3 Issues

A Christmas gift for Kim Davis in Kentucky

Gay marriage: Another reason Muslims may want to reconsider emigrating to America

By John Ruberry Like it or not, same-sex marriage is the law of the land. As a conservative with libertarian leanings, I favored civil unions for gays for years, in essence, marriage in all but name. What is now called traditional marriage reaches back into pre-history--social norms should not be thrown overboard so quickly. As … Continue reading Gay marriage: Another reason Muslims may want to reconsider emigrating to America
