Bad news day for witch-hunters as Regnerus is vindicated
Michael Kirke | 30 August 2012
The official University of Texas - Austin inquiry has found that Mark Regnerus, the author of a research study on the effects of same-sex relationships upon children, “did not commit scientific misconduct” as alleged by a homosexual activist who disagreed with the study’s findings.
Fined $30,000 for defending marriage
Frances Kelly | 29 August 2012
Apparently Vermont courts believe gender segregation in marriage trumps gender diversity. And the right to discriminate against men in marriage is more important than religious liberty.
Why promises about same-sex marriage are empty
Carolyn Moynihan | 22 August 2012
We have all heard how same-sex marriage will not affect "your marriage" or force any religious minister to marry a homosexual couple; how it has nothing to do with polygamy or incestuous relationships or "man-boy love" and so on. But how seriously should we take these assurances? Not very, if New Zealand's experience is anything to go by.
New hate-figure for the homosexual lobby - Robert Oscar Lopez
Frances Kelly | 17 August 2012
Lopez recently defended Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus’s study, which “found that children of gay or bisexual parents had greater difficulties than children of intact biological families with a mother and father.
Just imagine the jackboot on the other foot

Remember Florida 2000
Michael Kirke | 15 August 2012
While calling the action “very significant,” reporters were after the committee meeting that the top issue in the presidential campaign would be the economy, not same-sex marriage. Perhaps he would like to think so, but he should remember Florida in 2000. Who knows what issues were in the minds of the people who put the dimples in those critical chads which made Al Gore yesterday’s man?
The hi-jacking of language and the future of marriage
Frances Kelly | 13 August 2012
A decade ago you could simply say “married” and everybody and his gay brother knew you were talking about a husband and wife. No more. I live in Vermont, which is one of the six states that legalized monogender marriage. When a couple marries, you have no idea what gender they are. It could be one of three distinct compositions: male-male, female-female, or male-female.
A campaign becoming more crazy and intolerant by the day
Michael Kirke | 11 August 2012
It is not a little chilling to remember that a similar wave of ill-thought folly brought down upon America the biggest crime wave of the twentieth century with the passing of the Prohibition Act nearly 100 years ago. The destruction of marriage – and all the rest that the campaign of the gay lobby augurs for the welfare of the family and children – will be more devastating than even that short-lived folly. The damage will be much more difficult to undo.
Vital testimony which anti-gender marriage activists don’t want you to read
Frances Kelly | 10 August 2012
Robert Lopez tells his story about being raised by two moms. It is not just his sexual orientation that was impacted, but he missed out on vital gender cues that a male role model normally provides. Lopez gives a gripping account of what it really is like for children growing up in a same-sex parenting situation.

Will Tasmania legalise same-sex marriage?
Michael Cook | 08 August 2012
Tasmania could legalise same-sex marriage. Premier Lara Giddings announced last Saturday at the state Labor Party conference that she would support a bill making Tasmania the first state in Australia where gay couples can be legally married.
Marriage on the road to nowhere - or worse?
Frances Kelly | 05 August 2012
Pro-gender advocates believe gender-integration is crucial to marriage, the bedrock of culture. This allows children to grow up with both a mother and a father. They believe it makes more sense to base marriage law on gender, which is biological and immutable, rather than sexual orientation, which is fluid and subjective. In contrast, the born-this-way believers have elevated sexual orientation to such an extent that it has become more important than sexual gender.

Regnerus defends his study
Michael Cook | 03 August 2012
Here’s a video interview with the mastermind behind a dark plot to discredit gay parenting, Mark Regnerus, of the University of Texas at Austin. Actually, he doesn’t seem excessively evil. Actually, he sounds rather sensible. Actually, maybe he is not a “disgusting bigot” after all. What do you think?
