Pope tells Catholics after his plans to soften church’s attitude towards homosexuals were rejected by Synod
Dozens of same-sex couples wed in the country’s capital territory but the new law could face a challenge in the courts next week. ‘Regardless of what happens on Thursday, we still get five days of legally being together,’ said one bride.
‘We are talking about utilizing diplomatic channels to get things into the country’
(WND) An organization that previously documented how state officials in Massachusetts gave children graphic instructions in bizarre homosexual sex acts and has documented the advance of alternative sexual lifestyles now is reporting on a plan by “gay” activists to disrupt the coming Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Officials with MassResistance.com are reporting that an activist for the pro-LGBT agenda, Patrick Burke, addressed a meeting of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association.
It was during the “Out on the Playing Field” seminar that Burke said, “We’re going to have three weeks of sustained media presence there. We are going to have out LGBT athletes there. We are going to have very vocal and visible allies there. We’ve spoken with the Canadian and U.S. hockey teams. We’re going to be doing work with both of those teams.”
He said the “frustrating part” is that he cannot talk publicly about his strategies yet, “because if you talk about it publicly, the Russians don’t let you in the country.”
Ohio has a constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage.
CINCINNATI — For the second time this summer, a federal judge has ordered the state of Ohio and local officials to recognize the marriage of two men who went out of state to wed.
The order issued Tuesday involves a man from the Cincinnati suburb of Wyoming, Ohio, who died last month. The ruling allows his husband to be listed as his surviving spouse on his death certificate even though Ohio does not recognize same-sex marriages.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Black issued the temporary restraining order the day before William Herbert Ives is to be cremated. Ives and David Michener, who had been a couple for 18 years and were raising three children together, married July 22 in Delaware.
Court rules photographers must violate religious faith
The New Mexico Supreme Court has ruled that the First Amendment does not protect the owners a photography company who refused to serve a Lesbian couple because of their Christian beliefs.
Jon and Elaine Hugunin of Albuquerque, the court said, “can no more turn away customers on the basis of sexual orientation – photographing a same-sex marriage ceremony – than they could refuse to photograph African-Americans or Muslims.”
