Commentary: "Mic Drop" Obituary Challenges Those Left Behind

Steve Deace, writing at the Conservative Review, highlights a recent obituary which, though comical, also sounds a clarion call to our culture to stand up for what we believe in: Mary Anne Noland went full William Wallace with her last, dying breath earlier this week.

A Promise Kept

You’ll recall that when the New York legislature voted to redefine marriage in 2011, NOM pledged to oust the four Republican turncoats that betrayed their party and their constituents by voting against true marriage.

"Government should respect the rights of all citizens."

In The Daily Signal, Ryan Anderson of Heritage writes: It’s hard to imagine a more bedrock American right than being free to live according to your religious convictions.

Ryan Anderson: "This is an unfortunate setback for sound Constitutional self-government"

Ryan T. Anderson at The Daily Signal comments on today’s move by the Supreme Court to decline hearing appeals to cases overturning the marriage laws in several states.

"Ruthless Misogyny" - A Glimpse at the Radical LGBT Playbook

From Public Discourse comes this hard-hitting piece which everyone should read and share. It reveals the deplorable and unacceptable tenor of “debate” (if you can even call it that) waged by the radical activists promoting same-sex ‘marriage’ – a kind of bullying and harassment that has absolutely no place in the public square and should be condemned […]

Polygamy the Key to Happy Relationships?

Readers of the NOM blog know that the push to redefine marriage has far-reaching consequences.  Redefining marriage renders the institution meaningless.  Once marriage is no longer the lifelong union of one man and one woman, there is no logical conclusion as to why three or four consenting adults can’t “marry.”  After all, if marriage is solely based on adults’ […]

An Opportunity to Protect Conscience Rights

Last week at National Review, our friend Ryan Anderson presented four major problems with President Obama’s new executive order on sexual orientation and gender identity.   The four biggest problems with the executive order, Anderson wrote, are: 1.)
