Kiana Firouz is at risk of being deported from the UK. (http://librarianchick.com/kiana-deported) to Iran, where homosexuality is considered a heinous crime punishable by hanging. Make your voice heard by writing to the British Home Office (public.enquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk) requesting that Kiana receive refugee status.

From the page: “Fearful that they could be forced, among other things, to extend employee benefits to same-sex married couples, church officials said they would have no choice but to abandon their contracts with the city.”

Because you know, best not to do any good at all than to offer help to those gay heatherns.

Why should we be concerned with diversity among the Supreme Court? Why does it matter if Sotomayor will be the sixth Catholic on the nine-member court?

So you don’t have to read the entire article, I’m pulling the following excerpt from Catholic Answers Special Report on Gay Marriage, but feel free to read the whole thing at your leisure. They believe that – “Legalization of same-sex marriage will not bring absolution nor deliver inner peace. Homosexuals will continue to suffer from the problems their “lifestyle” creates, even if every state legislature and both houses of Congress were to pass bills extolling homosexual behavior and privileging their relationships over those of heterosexuals. Active homosexuals will continue seeking something that they will never find through the things they do with strangers. They will still be tragically unhappy people. Such behavior will never offer the basis for marriage nor satisfy their relationship needs as persons. Homosexuals need compassion, but since they will not benefit by homosexual “marriage,” there is no reason for society to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples. In fact, recognition of this intrinsically disordered behavior can have only bad effects on society.”

And in case there were any doubt, here’s another clarifying statement on how Catholics feel about Gay Marriage: “The institution of marriage is precious. It enhances the health, longevity, and well-being of married couples. It increases the health, vocational success, and emotional well-being of children. In providing all these benefits, heterosexual marriage contributes to the happiness and prosperity of society. Marriage must, therefore, remain limited to one man and one woman who strive to keep their marriage exclusive, unconditional, permanent, and life-giving. Nothing less will ever meet the needs of the human person, because nothing less satisfies.”

And if that didn’t clear it up for you, they close with: “Society has a lot to lose from legalizing homosexual marriage. And homosexuals have nothing to gain.”

Why should American citizens be concerned? Because in accordance with the Constitution, the judicial power of the United States is vested in The Supreme Court and because as American citizens, our concerns run much deeper than Roe v. Wade.
This video actually sickens me. The way she says atheist like it’s a dirty word made me pretend to squish her head between my finger and thumb. What’s ironic is Fox’s blatantly incorrect claim of unbiased reporting and the advertisement in the online video I had to sit through was for the Latter Day Saints.

“Things that make you go, hmmmm” for a thousand, Alex.
