A 51-year-old Canadian man was arrested and charged with a “hate crime” two years after distributing “anti-gay” pamphlets at the Toronto Pride Parade. The Toronto Police Service charged William Whatcott with, “willful promotion of hatred against an identifiable group, namely the gay community,” a Police statement said. The pamphlets warned that homosexuality is associated with sexually transmitted diseases, including HPV of the rectum, which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control confirms is true, according to The Federalist. The pamphlets were also said to contain negative comments about the Liberal party and left-wing politicians. A Christian message was also included, suggesting “eternal…

Scottish councils have widely backed new guidelines being pushed by LGBTQ activists campaigning for the “rights” of transgender children. The guidelines tell teachers that trans students should be allowed to undress in the change room of their own choosing. The guidelines also go on to suggest, “there is no reason for parents or carers of the other pupils to be informed.” But as if often the case with “trans-rights,” it’s girls who will be impacted most. According to The Herald Scotland, “none of the councils involved, nor the children’s commissioner, nor Education Scotland have carried out an equality impact assessment to…

Canada’s Supreme Court has told a Christian law school they should abandon biblical values if they want accreditation. The Supreme Court ruled 7-2 against Trinity Western University’s (TWU) Law School, after LGBT activists argued the Law School’s Christian values discriminate against LGBT students. “In a pair of 7-2 rulings, the majority of justices found the law societies of British Columbia and Ontario have the power to refuse accreditation based on Trinity Western University’s so-called community covenant,” which requires: …that all students and faculty pursue a holy life ‘characterized by humility, self-sacrifice, mercy and justice, and mutual submission for the good…

An advertisement recently released by Huggies nappies features a baby boy and his two lesbian mothers. Noticeably absent from the scene is the child’s father. But why should that matter? The baby has two mothers, and one with a fairly masculine haircut, so what’s the issue? What LGBTQ propaganda continues to imply is the superfluous nature of fathers and their replaceable role. There is nothing inherent or unique to being a father. There is nothing a father brings to the rearing of a child that a second mother couldn’t imitate. There was always going to be a knock-on effect. You…

A pastor in Cape Town has been sentence to 30 days in prison after disregarding court orders barring him from preaching about homosexuality. After making ‘hateful’ remarks in 2014, Rev Oscar Bougardt reached a settlement with the Human Rights Commission, agreeing not to make any further negative comments about the LGBTQ community. I may enter the court room and not come home to my family – my crime, preaching the Bible. However, last week the Equality Court found Bougardt continued to refer to homosexuality as ‘perverted.’ Bougardt also advocated the criminalisation of homosexual practices, reportedly suggesting a 14-year prison term,…

We told you it was about more than marriage. Christians who claim that homosexuality can be “fixed” could soon find themselves being prosecuted as the Victorian government orders an unprecedented inquiry into gay conversion therapy. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the inquiry will capture registered or unregistered counsellors, as well as faith-based ministries, who treat homosexuality as a disorder, along with anyone purporting to convert LGBTI people through therapeutic means. Health Minister Jill Hennessy, who asked Victoria’s Health Complaints Commissioner to conduct the investigation, told The Age: We have zero tolerance for anyone purporting to ‘convert’ gay people through…

On June 12, 2016, Muslim terrorist Omar Mateen, entered the Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. At about 2am, Mateen opened fire on the patrons, killing 49 people and wounding 53 others. Luis Ruiz was present on the night of the shooting. Two of his close friends were shot dead. Ruiz said, “I should have been number 50.” Ruiz felt he had been given another chance at life, and that led him to reflect on the life he was living. “Going through old pictures of the night of Pulse, I remember my struggles of perversion, heavy drinking to drown…

Children at Parson Street Primary School in Bedminster, Bristol, were entertained by a drag queen on World Book Day. The school’s headmaster, Jamie Barry, reportedly invited the drag entertainer from Drag Queen Story Time in order to promote LGBTQ issues to their students aged from three to 11. Drag Queen Story Time’s stated aim is to, “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of children and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.” One mother was quoted as saying, “Lots of parents at the school are not happy about it but the headmaster [Jamie Barry] says there’s…

The Multicultural Student Services Center (MSSC) at George Washington University is set to host a seminar titled, “Christian Privilege: But Our Founding Fathers Were All Christian, Right?!” During the event, the MSSC Associate Director and LGBTQ Resources Director will discuss how Christians have “easier” lives and get “built-in advantages over non-Christians.” I think it’s safe to assume the seminar is going to be a complete dog’s breakfast. These things are only ever intended to divide people, in order to turn them against the dreaded straight, white, Christian male. But what if I told you there are real advantages to being a…

What’s this? It’s the victim card. What’s that? It’s the fabrication of victimhood to justify one’s own poor behaviour. And it was recently played by the ABC in response to the backlash they received for their racist ‘Privilege Song’ video. “It was just a kid’s show,” they cried. “What sort of grown man gets upset about a children’s program?” Well, on the off chance that anyone out there still buys their garbage, here’s one more glimpse at the “kid’s show” they just can’t comprehend anybody finding objectionable. There are many different sexualities… The word Queer hasn’t always been a positive or…

Why should you believe the Bible? It’s an important question, not only for those who don’t believe, but also for those who already do. It’s an important question because our culture is increasingly rejecting the Bible as the measure of truth and morality. As a result, our freedoms are eroding day by day. Relativism is now widely embraced in place of Christianity. That is, the philosophy that truth and morality are essentially defined by the biggest, noisiest, most vicious mob. It’s time to return to our old paths. It’s time to embrace truth and morality as defined by the Bible,…

Qantas has told their employees to use “gender appropriate” language to avoid offending the LGBTQI community. According to the Daily Telegraph, an information booklet, issued by Quanta’s People and Culture group executive Lesley Grant, asks employees to stop using potentially offensive words such as “honey, darling and love.” Terms such as “partner” are also to be used in place of husband and wife, and “parents” instead of mum and dad. Also frowned upon are gender-inappropriate words such as guys, mankind, or chairman. Language can make groups of people invisible. For example, the use of the term chairman can reinforce the idea that…

Delaware is preparing to pass a rule that would allow students as young as five to ‘choose’ their own race and gender. Under Regulation 225, LGBTQ activists are pushing to make it a requirement for schools to provide students with access to bathrooms and sports facilities in accordance with their preferred gender – and that, without parental consent. The rule doesn’t require schools to inform parents of any change in gender, if they believe that the parents would not support the decision. Transgender activist, Mark Purpura said the rule is made in the “best interest of the child” as it helps…

Let’s be honest. Apple are in the business of selling products. They’re a business, and they’re not going to back a cause that threatens to sink them. So, don’t mistake their latest campaign for bravery. They’ve simply joined the plethora of brands now gayifying just about everything they’re offering, automated teller machines are no exception. In fact, thanks to the official YES Campaign, we’ve now been offered a large list of more than 2,000 organisations that are publicly backing LGBTQI issues. It’s no surprise then to see Apple’s latest virtue-signaling campaign called First Dance. A number of short videos have appeared on social media recently,…

It’s truly remarkable that there is a marketing team out there that thought it would be a good idea for ANZ Australia to take sides in one of the most divisive national debates of our time. Of the 12.7 million Australians who voted in the Same-Sex Marriage survey, 38.4% of votes fell on one side, 61.6% fell on the other. At the risk of offending 4,873,987 potential Australian customers, ANZ Australia has introduced the GAYTM. Yes, they’ve managed to sexualise a bank transaction, although they look more like something from the set of George Clooney’s, Batman and Robin. AGL Energy…

Peter Worland, executive director of Uniting tells us, “everyone is born in the image of God.” What that means, according to Worland, is that “every person is… not born broken, but born perfect. And that means every LGBTI person as well.”  Is that what the Bible says, or is Peter Worland and his friends at the Uniting Church, contradicting the faith they claim to profess? Here’s what the Bible actually says. You be the judge: I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. (Ps. 51:5) The heart is deceitful above all things, and…

The results of the same-sex plebiscite were announced on 15 November 2017, and a few weeks later Australia became the 26th nation in the world to legislate for same-sex marriage. The Prime Minister was beside himself, as he punched the air, like an Aussie batsman who had just scored a century against the old foe, England. ‘Australia has done it,’ he proclaimed, ‘What a day for love, for equality, for respect.’ Step aside Neville Chamberlain who was overjoyed at guaranteeing peace in our time in 1938. Here is Malcolm Turnbull in 2017: ‘This belongs to us all. This is Australia…

“Do not let this one issue, and I know it’s a very powerful, strong issue, but do not let this one issue prevent you from eternity with God.” After 25 years of homosexuality, Becket said: “When I was living that gay life, and for many, many years, I was 100% sure that was my identity. I felt like I was born that way. It was my orientation; it was my identity, and I felt like it was immutable. And one of the things that also happened during that moment of conversion was I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that…

According to the Daily Mail, a 10-year-old from Brooklyn, New York, is launching Haus of Amazing, the “first and only drag club for kids.” Desmond Napoles, whose drag name is, ‘Desmond the Amazing,’ claims to have been “doing drag since [he] was two years old.” In an interview with Out, Desmond revealed: “Ever since day one… ever since I was able to walk, I used to take my mom’s towels and take her heels and clomp around the house. [I’d] put the towel on my head, wrap a towel around my body and walk the runway down my house.” When…

This article was originally posted on The Spectator. The whole same-sex marriage debate involved a lot of talk about right and wrong. Whether someone voted “yes” or “no” depended largely on what that individual considered the most moral choice. We were told that “love says ‘yes’,” and that human rights, justice, and equality were at stake. Almost the entire issue was framed as a wrong that desperately needed to be made right. In other words, the language and arguments used implied the existence of a real moral measure – a standard that would be violated if one were to vote “no”. Either morality is…
