Maggie Gallagher Slams “Shamefully Silent” Donald Trump Over Jailing Of Kim Davis

“Kim Davis is showing us what conscience looks like. After all, getting in front of a slavishly approving media à la Ferguson does not confer moral significance on one’s willingness to break the civil law for a higher law. What makes civil disobedience noble is a willingness to sacrifice, if necessary, rather than submit to the civil law. But is ...

Christopher Doyle Has The JONAH Sadz

“Because of the lack of respect by Judge Bariso for JONAH’s spiritual practices, it was practically impossible for the jury to hand down a not-guilty verdict.

Potential jurors who believed homosexuality is a sin were screened out; defense attorney Charles Limandri was ...

Quote Of The Day – Maggie Gallagher

“By some mysterious providence, three things happened in the past few weeks: Rachel Dolezal was outed as a white woman. Bruce Jenner was lauded as a white woman.

HomoQuotable – John Paulk

“It’s funny, for those of us that worked in it, behind closed doors, we knew we hadn’t really changed. Our situations had changed – we had gotten married, and some of us had children, so our roles had changed. I was a husband and father; that was my identity.

Double Talk From Maggie Gallagher

“I don’t back something called ‘conversion therapy.’ I don’t even really know what conversion therapy is, and I’m not qualified to express an opinion on a particular kind of therapy.

Maggie Gallagher Backs “Ex-Gay” Group

“Chuck Limandri, my old friend from the Carrie Prejean, Prop 8 fights, is a heckuva a lawyer and one brave man. He’s taking on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s massive legal machine to defend the right of Jewish gay people to seek help.
