On March 22, the Obama Administration raised yet another rainbow flag in political concession to the “gay” lobby, calling on the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva to take up the global campaign for homosexual rights. “Human rights are the inalienable right of every person, no matter who they are or who they love,” said Chamberlain Donahoe, U.S. Ambassador to the Human Rights Council, in a statement released with the delivery of the U.S declaration, which has the approval of more than 80 other nations. “The U.S. government is firmly committed to supporting the right of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals to lead productive and dignified lives, free from fear and violence.”
The New York Times reported on March 19 that final approval has been completed to make way for the creation of a new “red light district on the Web“—a “Triple-X” domain reserved exclusively for pornographic websites of all kinds. While some 200,000 dot-xxx domain names have been reserved over the past year in anticipation of the new pornographic Internet suffix, the authorization by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has drawn heavy criticism from both pro-family groups concerned about increased sexual content on the web and entrenched businesses in the pornography industry worried about an influx of new porn sites cutting into their business.
The New Hampshire Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling ordering a home schooled girl to attend public school, overriding the desire of the girl’s mother that she be educated at home. The March 16 decision came following an extended conflict between the divorced parents of the girl, who were at odds over whether she should be taught at home, as her mother wished, or attend public school, which was her father’s desire.
A Minnesota legislator said she was uncomfortable with the invocation offered by a Baptist pastor to open up the state Senate’s legislative session March 14, and wants a stipulation that only non-sectarian prayers be offered in the future. The offending prayer was given by the Rev. Dennis Campbell of Granite City Baptist Church in St. Cloud, Minnesota, who invoked the name of Jesus Christ three times during the prayer and referred to Christianity on several occasions.
“Misery loves company,” the old saying goes, and nowhere is this more evident than in the homosexual community, where an assortment of “gays,” lesbians, “transgendered” folk, and others broken and wounded in their sexuality not only languish in a tormented lifestyle they secretly despise, but mercilessly deride anyone with the courage to break the chains of bondage and step into freedom.
The right to kill yourself became the law of the land in Washington state in 2008. In year two since enactment of the Death With Dignity Act (DWDA), which allows adult residents of the state whom doctors have diagnosed with a terminal illness to take their own lives, a total of 87 people were prescribed “lethal doses” of medication by their physician (“death by doctor” once removed being the only legal method of suicide thus far) and a total a 72 actually died, either by the drugs or by some other means.
It’s a phenomenon many in today’s culture are having a hard time pegging. In a society where sex has become something of an obsession, the latest study from the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) showing that an increasing number of teens and young adults are remaining sexually abstinent, is news indeed.
A new law to which Governor Dennis Daugaard (picture, left) attached his signature on March 7 gives families in South Dakota the freedom to home school their children without undue intrusion from their local school districts.
The family of a critically ill infant in Canada, whose doctors are trying to have him removed from life support, is getting much needed assistance from a group of pro-life organizations that want to fly the infant to the U.S. for care in an American hospital.
Two recent cases, one in the U.S. and one in Europe, demonstrate the extent to which government is aggressively militating to control and regulate children and families.
