The former president of the American Psychological Association says political correctness and homosexual ideology rule the organization, and that leaving the homosexual “lifestyle” is indeed a possibility, a position contrary to that of the APA.

U.S. retailer J.C. Penney has raised the ire of pro-family groups for a Father’s Day ad featuring two homosexual men and the children they are raising.

As the global battle over parental rights heats up, Republicans in Congress responded on Tuesday by introducing a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution enshrining the liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children. Activists and lawmakers say the move is needed to permanently and explicitly guarantee what has long been recognized as a fundamental freedom.

Judge Timothy Garcia of the state’s court of appeals upheld a ruling by New Mexico’s Civil Rights Commission that fined the owners of Elane Photography nearly $7,000 when the photographer refused to photograph two lesbians at their “commitment ceremony.”

The city council of Anaheim, California is taking the U.S. House of Representatives up on its admonition that America’s national motto, “In God We Trust,” ought to be proudly displayed in public schools and government buildings across America. On May 29, the southern California community’s governing body voted unanimously to include the motto, set in four-inch brushed-gold letters on a black background, in the City Council Chambers.

The movie For Greater Glory depicts the story of Mexico's Cristero War in the 1920s, when a peasant army fought bravely for their religious freedom against a militantly secular, anti-Catholic regime.

Robert Zubrin's previous books have compelled readers to think "outside the box," and his most recent title, Merchants of Despair, is likely to prove his most challenging work to date.

 

 Death educators are quite aware that they are dealing with a highly charged, taboo subject that many students can’t handle. But they are more concerned with making death education more “effective” than investigating the possibility that death education — effective or ineffective — is a contributing cause of teen suicide.
