Counties should not issue same-sex marriage licenses

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., March 5, 2014 –As a result of last month's irresponsible judicial decision in Cook County which usurps the proper legislative process, county clerks are now issuing same-sex "marriage" licenses across the state of Illinois.

While U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman believes that there "is no reason to delay further" the implementation of Illinois' new same-sex "marriage" law, she evidently fails to recognize that creating, modifying, or implementing state law is outside of the court's purview.

Making and implementing law is strictly a function of the General Assembly. Ignoring the proper roles of the three branches of government sets an extremely dangerous precedent.

When unelected judicial activists like Judge Coleman circumvent the legislative process, they are in essence telling the legislature that they are irrelevant. State lawmakers and county clerks should not be complicit in this gross usurpation of the legislative process.

Vatican asks Catholics for views on sex, marriage, divorce VATICAN CITY, Nov. 3—Catholics across the world are being asked for their views on contraception, same-sex unions and communion for divorced and remarried couples, reports The Tablet and SMH. –Kathleen: This Vatican doesn’t teach, it asks opinions

Art preservation a great responsibility, say Vatican restorers   VATICAN CITY, Nov. 1—Those in charge of the restoration of various types of artwork in the Vatican museums stress that the preservation of such treasures is necessary on both a historical and an educational level. Kathleen: Some art experts say that a restoration failure at the Sistine Chapel was covered up. They say layers of the final details were unintentionally removed during cleaning. History itself could be changed because we cannot restore or examine what has been washed away accidentally –or otherwise.

Francis ranked fourth 'most powerful' person in world  Oct. 31—Pope [sic] Francis is the fourth "most powerful" person in the world according to American business magazine Forbes, which has just released the names of those it ranks as "the 72 most powerful people" on the planet, reports Vatican Insider. Kathleen: Of course he is. Too bad he’s not Catholic, he would excommunicate pro-abort politicians, and more.

THE ROBBER CHURCH

For me the most important part of this book is his "Questioning the Validity of  the Masses Using the New All-English Canon." He called my attention to the risk, nay the certainty, of idolatry. Everyone can profit from his work, even those of us who have read it previously.

PAOLO SESTO BEATO? / PAUL VI BEATIFIED?
by Luigi Villa
The author has fought freemasonry and communism more than half a century, and knows his subject. He documents his work with over three hundred footnotes, which we have mostly omitted because we consider Monsignor Villa sufficient authority on his own specialty. The book was written just over a decade ago, but much of its content was published earlier in his periodical, Chiesa Viva, some of it more than once. So if you find it somewhat repetitious, be assured of his different treatment of each "redundancy."

This important book has never been published in English.

Idaho ruling hardly small potatoes

Tony Perkins: Washington Update

Family Research Council

 

http://www.frc.org/img/item/WU14E11_NORMAL.jpgIf anyone can handle a political hot potato, it's Idaho. Still, that didn't make Tuesday's decision on marriage any easier for its deeply conservative voters, who unwillingly joined the parade of states overruled by the judicial elite. Reporters barely had time to exhale after Friday's Arkansas decision, when U.S. District Magistrate Judge Candy Dale sent them packing for the northwest to write the same story in a different state.

For the 12th time since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last summer, a local judge felt empowered to bulldoze the will of an entire state, declaring a "fundamental right to marry" that even the justices didn't acknowledge. In Boise, the ruling stings a bit more than others, since unlike the courts' other victims, Idaho had overwhelmingly voted for an amendment that wouldn't recognize any form of counterfeit marriage -- including domestic partnerships and civil unions. Making matters worse, Dale inflicted this damage as a magistrate, well exceeding her authority and outraging 63% of voters who never believed it was her decision to begin with.

 

"Marriage," she writes, "is a fundamental right of all citizens, which neither tradition nor the majority may deny." Dale insisted that the amendment's defenders, who argued that natural marriage is in our children's best interest, couldn't justify the "rigid gender roles of the past." Governor C.L. Otter (R) disagrees and, with the help of state attorney general Lawrence Wasden, raced to ask the federal court for a stay. Without it, clerks across the state will be ordered to start issuing same-sex "marriage" licenses as early as Friday morning.

"In 2006, the people of Idaho exercised their fundamental right, reaffirming that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. Today's decision, while disappointing, is a small setback in a long-term battle that will end at the U.S. Supreme Court. I am firmly committed to upholding the will of the people and defending our Constitution." As are our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom, who, in the midst of the Idaho decision, were a dozen states away in Richmond, Virginia trying to stop the Fourth Circuit from overturning a similar amendment. All eyes were on the Commonwealth, which became a rallying cry for liberals when state attorney general Mark Herring refused to defend Virginia's law.

The three-judge panel, which seemed to sharply disagree on whether the amendment was constitutional, listened attentively to both sides' arguments, as more than 500 natural marriage supporters, including FRCA's Josh Duggar, rallied on the grounds out front. In a lighter moment, Circuit Judge Paul Niemeyer joked that the court was just a "way station" as the issue moved up the road to Washington, D.C.

 

Meanwhile, if the courts think they can resolve this issue by forcing a redefinition of marriage on the American people, they're wrong. Forty-one years ago, the far-reaching decision in Roe v. Wade was supposed to end the debate on abortion -- which, four decades later, we know conclusively it did not. The definition of marriage, like the sanctity of life, is a matter of natural and moral law. The courts can ignore the meaning of marriage; they can even try to suppress it. But they'll never eradicate it.

 

Maryland's Sex Ed a Radical Show and Tell

 

http://www.frc.org/img/activedit/Homosexuality_School_R.jpgIf you need proof that same-sex "marriage" is about more than "love," look no further than Montgomery County, Maryland. There, parents are dealing with the fallout of the state's redefinition of marriage with a sweeping new sex education curriculum. Moms and dads, who were already fighting an uphill battle on the content of the lessons, are now coping with the news that homosexuality will be woven throughout -- shattering families' fragile hold on parents' rights.

 

Yesterday, the Montgomery County School Board took up the issue in a debate over the district's health curriculum. Not surprisingly, there were calls for an even greater emphasis on sexual orientation, as well as introducing the topic to students earlier than ever before. In the current curriculum, kids are asked to reflect on things like "the benefits of 'coming out,'" and the harms of "homophobia... which can he shown in mild ways like laughing at a gay joke." "Children are not born hating. They learn to hate and fear from messages they receive while growing up," read one section. One of the proposed videos even includes a positive look at transgenderism. "Your sexual orientation cannot change," the text insists. "If you were attracted to women, and all of the sudden, you're attracted to a man, it's because you just became aware of your true orientation." If liberals get their way, the indoctrination could begin as earlier as this fall with middle schoolers. For the County, the fireworks over sex ed are nothing new. Since 2005, parents have been in a tug-of-war over the content of the lessons, even going so far as to sue the state over the suggestion that homosexuality is innate.

 

In the meantime, curriculum like Montgomery County's is just the tip of the iceberg for the changes same-sex "marriage" will bring to a classroom near you. Like the ripples created when a rock is dropped in a pond, the ripples created by the redefinition of marriage will reach far into society. That's important for every American to understand, but especially libertarians who have yet to recognize that their "live and let live" mentality cannot work if our goal is to preserve liberty. Make sure you know how to spot these agendas in your district. Click here to download a free copy of FRC's booklet, "Homosexuality in Your Child's School."


 

Abortionist who made racist comments arrested for rape
 

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 9 –(Operation Save America) In 2012 a video of Charlotte abortionist Ron Vermani challenging Operation Save America to "adopt one of those ugly black babies" went viral on the web. Vermani is back in the news again. He was arrested early Thursday morning for second degree rape and two counts of second degree sexual offense.
 
The victim told police Vermani invited her to his home Wednesday afternoon to discuss a business deal. Investigators say he then raped her and refused to let her leave.
 
This incident is only one example of the real abuse that surrounds the abortion industry. It is a business dedicated to making money from abusing women and killing unborn babies. We should not be surprised to learn of the racism and sexual perversion that is rampant in the industry that falsely claims to empower women. That's a lie from the pit of hell.

Vermani works in his grizzly trade at "A Preferred Women's Health Clinic" in Charlotte, N.C.

"I have been to Ron's house, at his invitation, and shared the Gospel of Christ with him. He is a very lonely, bitter and angry man. His wife and children left him long ago. His mouth (the words he speaks) provides us with an X-ray into his heart!" Rev. Flip Benham, Operation Save America.

Zoning Violations by Aurora Mega-Abortion Facility Require Shutdown

Thomas More Society Appeal Calls for Planned Parenthood to be Bound by Law

Tom Ciesielka

tc@tcpr.net

AURORA, Ill., May 9 (
Thomas More Society)-- This week, the Thomas More Society, a Chicago-based public interest law firm, appealed the dismissal of the lawsuit it brought in 2008 for "Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood" against Planned Parenthood of Illinois, filing with the Clerk of the Illinois Appellate Court, Second Judicial District, a 50 page brief and also an appendix packed with over 200 pages of evidence detailing Planned Parenthood's massive zoning fraud.

The lawsuit was brought by residents neighboring the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Aurora and by "Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood," a voluntary association formed to oppose Planned Parenthood's new Aurora, Illinois mega-clinic, which contains 12 surgical recovery rooms. The suit alleges that Planned Parenthood misled and lied to Aurora zoning and building officials in 2006 and 2007 to get permits to build its facility. Since then, Planned Parenthood has operated as a non-profit at a site explicitly zoned and reserved for a commercial, for-profit medical office building.

To obtain the permits to build its facility, Planned Parenthood hid behind an entity cynically named Gemini Office Development, LLC, "G.O.D.," which filed an application to build a for-profit, commercial medical office building that would rent space to physicians, dentists, and other medical professionals. But Planned Parenthood had obtained an $8 million loan from the Illinois Finance Authority on condition that its new Aurora facility be operated as a tax-free, not for profit entity.

"Aurora officials and citizens have both the duty and the right to evaluate the lawfulness and desirability of new businesses in the community, including any abortion business," said Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society. "Planned Parenthood, however, deceived the people of Aurora and prevented them from any real evaluation of the facility before it opened. Planned Parenthood compounded its fraud by applying for and receiving (as a non-profit) $8 million from tax-free bonds from the Illinois Finance Authority, to build its facility. Thus, not only did Planned Parenthood slap Aurora citizens in the face with its fraud, but worse, it did so at the citizens' own expense."

Under the Aurora zoning ordinance, Planned Parenthood's proposed non-profit land use would have required special notice to neighbors and then a public hearing, which Planned Parenthood avoided by covering up its real identity. Only when the Chicago Tribune broke the story about Planned Parenthood's involvement in July, 2007, did the truth become widely known. A great public outcry ensued, with over 1,000 demonstrators protesting at the site, and hundreds of opponents lining up to testify at late night City Council meetings.

But Aurora's Mayor intervened before the City Council took any action, calling on supposed "experts" who rendered reports that grossly misstated the applicable zoning and related laws. Based on their flawed reports, the Mayor directed that permits be issued -- despite the clear violations of law. Planned Parenthood opened, and Thomas More Society immediately filed suit.

Despite Planned Parenthood's illegal behavior, DuPage County Judge Paul Fullerton dismissed the lawsuit on August 29, 2013, deferring, he said, to legislative action, although the Mayor, not the City Council, had ordered issuance of the requisite permits. Judicial review in such a case should not have been deferential, but substantial and exhaustive. As Planned Parenthood has been operating in violation of the law, the facility must be dismantled or sold to a legitimate, for-profit medical office facility. Plaintiffs fully anticipate that their appeal will succeed, and that justice will finally prevail.

About the Thomas More Society
Thomas More Society is a national not-for-profit law firm that exists to restore respect in law for life, marriage, and religious liberty. Headquartered in Chicago, the Society fosters support for these causes by providing high quality pro-bono professional legal services from local trial courts all the way to the United States Supreme Court. www.thomasmoresociety.org


Ex-Gays File Sexual Orientation Discrimination Complaint with Department of Justice

ROCKVILLE, Md. –Parents   and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) has filed a sexual orientation discrimination complaint with the Department of Justice and the Department of Education against the Montgomery County, Maryland Board of Education and its School Superintendent, Joshua Starr.

PFOX requests the federal agencies initiate an investigation into the discriminatory practices of Superintendent Starr and the Montgomery County school board and to oversee a remedial program to ensure diversity and non-discrimination against ex-gays.

"Starr misused his official position as school superintendent to gain access to students and indoctrinate them with his prejudicial bias against the ex-gay community," said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX. "The Department of Justice has investigated complaints against schools for discriminating against
transgenders –those  who have changed their gender identity. The ex-gay community –those  who have changed their sexual orientation –asks for equal treatment from our federal government."

After PFOX distributed ex-gay flyers to high school students as part of the schools' flyer distribution program for non-profit organizations, Starr publicly
denigrated PFOX and former homosexuals by calling the actions of PFOX "reprehensible and deplorable" and labeling the flyer's sexual orientation freedom stance as "a really, really disgusting message."

"PFOX's flyers provided information on unwanted same-sex attractions, discouraged student name calling, and urged tolerance for former homosexuals," Griggs said. "Starr does not respect real diversity. As school superintendent, Starr's actions make it impossible for Montgomery County public schools to provide an atmosphere where everyone is treated fairly and with respect, and free from discrimination and abuse, as mandated by its sexual orientation nondiscrimination policy.

"Although PFOX has participated in the MCPS flyer distribution program for five years, Starr and the school board admitted that they closed the entire program in order to keep out ex-gays. Their actions are reminiscent of the 1950s Jim Crow South, when public pools were closed rather than allow the participation of African-Americans."

Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays is the leading ex-gay advocacy organization.
