    Four years ago, 14-year-old Lizzie Lowe took her own life because she did not believe she would be accepted as a Christian who was also gay. Since then her church, St James in Didsbury, Manchester, and its sister church Emmanuel, has formally become an inclusive church - embracing everyone, regardless of gender, race, disability or sexuality. Lizzie's parents believe embracing inclusion could help save the lives of other teenagers.

    While the country is celebrating the historic Supreme Court judgement to decriminalise Homosexuality, the Churches in Mizoram have "rejected" https://www.time8.in/mizoram-meghalaya-churches-say-gay-sex-is-immoral/ the apex court's ruling on Article 377. A congregation of 14 major churches in the state, Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitute Committee, on Monday has said https://thenortheasttoday.com/mizoram-state-churches-reject-scs-section-377-ruling/ that it wished the apex court had never scrapped Section 377. The leaders of the Church stated that homosexuality, lesbianism should continue to be criminalised as it was in the past. In Meghalaya, the Church has said, https://nenow.in/north-east-news/meghalaya-shillong-catholic-church-thumbs-gay-sex.html "What is legal is not equal to moral acceptability. The Catholic Church and many others  hold that homosexual...

    The organisation behind Sesame Street has denied co-habiting duo, Bert and Ernie, are gay, following comments by one of the show's writers. Mark Saltzman said his writing about the room-mating couple was based on his relationship with film editor Arnold Glassman. Sesame Workshop then issued a statement saying the pair "do not have a sexual orientation". Bert and Ernie may look human, but the pair "remain puppets", it said. "They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves." It broadly repeats past statements the non-profit organisation has made about...

    LGBT flag once hung over sanctuary of gay parish, displayed at Cdl. Bernardin's MassParishioners of Resurrection Parish in Chicago, Illinois, held a rainbow flag-burning event last week, cutting up and setting on fire an LGBT flag that once hung in the sanctuary at the parish's first Mass.

Paul John Kalchik, and ordered him not to hold the event. A handful of parishioners took things into their own hands and...

    Eminem says he felt uncomfortable with homophobic lyrics he wrote and released on his recent album, Kamikaze. He faced criticism for his language on album track Fall while speaking about Tyler, The Creator. Eminem says he "felt like this might be too far", in a new interview to promote the record on his own YouTube channel. "In my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it," says Eminem. "It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going 'I don't feel right with this'."

    NORTHERN IRELAND, September 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Nearly thirty companies from and outside Northern Ireland have signed a letter calling on the province to recognize same-sex “marriages” within its borders. Organized by the left-wing Amnesty International UK, the letter argues that redefining marriage is an economic necessity. “A diverse, outward-looking and inclusive society is essential to create a vibrant and competitive economy and a prosperous future for Northern Ireland,” it claims. “Equality contributes to an environment of creativity and excellence where our LGBT staff feel able to bring their whole selves to the workplace and where their relationships will be...

    I watched nearly all of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Right away, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley stated clearly that the role of a judge is to rule based on the law regardless of his or her personal view of the outcome. He also stated that since Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s confirmation hearing in 1993, every nominee has agreed to decline to discuss his or her personal opinion of the “correctness” of any given court precedent. He stated firmly that requesting a judge to do so would essentially be asking for a promise...

After screening Moore’s anti-Trump “Fahrenheit 11/9” at the Toronto Film Festival, Hogg and other Parkland, Florida high school students joined the millionaire filmmaker on stage during a Q&A. “I have a question for you guys,” Hogg said after grabbing the mic from Moore. “Who’s ready to save America?” The Canadian audience cheered. “Who’s ready to make America the country we say it is on paper, and make it the actual country that it wants to be?” he asked. Hogg was the critical...

    The National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) issued an apology on Sunday after a host at the group's convention over the weekend referred to some attendees as "things and its."

    More companies are adopting a diversity and inclusion policy. This time the parent company of DC Entertainment, Warner Bros., and HBO, will employ a diversity and inclusion policy for people of color, LGBTQIA+, and other “marginalized” individuals. According to ICV2, the site is reporting that WarnerMedia will utilize the new diversity and inclusion policy for upcoming projects when it comes to hiring, creating stories, and giving a voice to “under-represented” groups. In the press statement it reads… ”[W]e all must ensure there is greater inclusion of women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, those with disabilities and other underrepresented groups...

    On September 5 gun control activist David Hogg suggested AR-15s cannot be used for self-defense because they shoot further than handguns. He made this suggestion via a tweet which he sent in response Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony that AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles are used for “self-defense.” Kavanaugh’s full statement was that “handguns and semi-automatic rifles are weapons used for hunting and for self-defense.” But Hogg isolated the words “self-defense” and tried to make a point: David Hogg ✔ @davidhogg111 The effective range of an AR-15 is 1600 feet for comparison your typical handgun is 75 feet if...

    In a historic decision, India's Supreme Court has ruled that gay sex is no longer a criminal offence. The ruling overturns a 2013 judgement that upheld a colonial-era law, known as section 377, under which gay sex is categorised as an "unnatural offence". The court has now ruled discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a fundamental violation of rights. Campaigners outside the court cheered and some broke down in tears as the ruling was handed down. Although public opinion in India's biggest cities has been in favour of scrapping the law, there remains strong opposition among religious groups...

    Though Adventure Time’s series finale brought Finn and Jake’s televised adventures to an end this week, the event also confirmed one of the most interesting and longstanding theories about the show that astonished and delighted many fans. After multiple seasons of hints, clues, and varying amounts of queer subtext, Adventure Time’s finale confirmed that Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the vampire have romantic feelings for one another and are destined to be together. During a climactic battle against GOLB, a powerful and malevolent being from another dimension hellbent on destroying Ooo, Marceline watches as Bubblegum is apparently crushed, prompting the vampire...

    In his last few months alive, John McCain cemented his legacy as a petty, ego-driven creature of the swamp by banning the sitting President from his funeral. If you think Donald Trump is small-minded, imagine asking Meghan to leave the room while you instruct your chief of staff to wait until you’re dead and then tell Trump, “Sorry, no funeral for you!” But the man being celebrated by liberal journalists as a free-spirited iconoclast took time out of his last days with his family to deliver what he imagined to be an indignity. Try as I might, I can’t imagine...

    The gun-grabbing hate mobs of the left were triggered on Sunday afternoon after a lone shooter opened fire at a video game tournament in Jacksonville. According to reports, the shooter was a Madden veteran who snapped after losing a game and whipped out a handgun which he used to shoot multiple people and ultimately himself. The shooting went down at Jacksonville Landing, an entertainment complex that was a popular destination for bars and restaurants and despite initial concerns that the death toll would be much higher, only three people lost their lives including the lunatic who opened fire. There is...
