About that pedophile-sexual ‘orientation’ description: Whoops, just a typo

    One News Now: The APA created an uproar when it decided to classify pedophilia as a “sexual orientation” rather than a mental disorder in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM. Now, the APA is saying in effect it was just a mistake – equivalent to a typographical error or omission.

Attractions vs. actions: homosexuality and God’s story

    John Jonestreet at LifeSiteNews: Gay activists make much of allegedly “cured” individuals who relapse into homosexual lifestyles, and use these stories to strengthen their narrative: “We didn’t choose to be gay,” so many insist. “We’re born this way, and no amount of ‘reparative therapy’ can change that.” But it’s the argument within that argument that’s the most problematic: that unchanged dispositions automatically justify acting on those dispositions.

Same-sex Marriage, Religious Liberty Collide In Case Presented To Supreme Court | Ken Klukowski at Breitbart

    Ken Klukowski at Breitbart: On Friday, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), representing Elane Photography, filed a petition for certiorari at the Supreme Court of the United States, asking SCOTUS to reverse the New Mexico court. ADF specifically challenges the New Mexico ruling for violating the Huguenins’ First Amendment right of free speech, since it compels Elane and Jonathan to convey a message approving of gay marriage which is contrary to the Huguenins’ beliefs. The petition begins by quoting a recent U.S. Supreme Court case where the justices wrote, “At the heart of the First Amendment lies the principle that each person should decide for himself or herself the ideas and beliefs deserving of expression.” . . . Jordan Lorence is ADF’s lead counsel on this case. The New Mexico court found that Elane Photography is a “public accommodation,” like a restaurant or restroom that could not turn away a black or Hispanic person. Reacting to that declaration, Lorence told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement, “The First Amendment protects all Americans from government coercion forcing them to promote ideas they don’t support. Those in power should not misuse public-accommodation laws to punish those who decline to affirm the prevailing liberal orthodoxy on marriage.”
