CDC: 94 to 95 percent of HIV cases among young men linked to gay sex

    LifeSiteNews: With the incidence of HIV among men so closely tied to homosexual sex, shouldn’t the government and all concerned and compassionate adults be urging young men and teenaged boys not to engage in or experiment with dangerous homosexual behavior? And yet, the CDC and other pro-”gay” institutions (including many schools public and private) are doing exactly the opposite, as they focus instead on affirming “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender” youth as a “sexual minority.”

Should Christians Abandon State Marriage?

    WorldNetDaily: Currently, government is heavily involved in marriage. Changing that would require a wrenching overhaul of American law. For example, until recent changes adopted following the U.S. Supreme Court’s skewering of the Defense of Marriage Act, federal law treated married couples differently than single individuals in 1,138 ways, according to a 2003 GAO report. Marital status matters when it comes to taxation, federal civilian and military benefits, Veterans and Social Security benefits, private employer benefits, immigration and more. Uprooting this body of law would launch a social revolution in which marriage is treated no differently than those who prefer the same sex, multiple wives or any other imaginable intimate arrangement.

“Meet The Top 10 Foundations Giving to LGBT Causes”

    South Florida Gay News: Well, looking at the LGBT-focused segment of the report yields some interesting data, like the fact that the top contributor in 2010 is the Arcus Foundation, which, on top of dedicating itself to LGBT issues, its second and equal priority is “to conserve and protect the great apes.” Arcus gave $14.6 million. Second place goes to the Gill Foundation, which came out at an even $10 million. Sixth place goes to the Ford Foundation, which in late July hired openly gay Darren Walker as its new president — it gave $4 million.

“IRS’ gay-marriage decision has many implications in shifting legal landscape”

    Beth Hawkins at MinnPost: Minnesota businesses — and in particular those that employ people throughout the country — are scrambling to figure out how to comply with the Internal Revenue Service’s decision to begin recognizing all legal same-sex marriages starting Sept. 16, regardless of where a couple lives. “The [Obama] administration is sending the message that from a federal law perspective, marriage equality now exists,” said Sarah Riskin, a labor and employment attorney at Nilan Johnson Lewis. “Which is really kind of huge.”
