A group of polygamists and a “machinist” have filed a lawsuit against the State of Mississippi for allegedly violating the U.S. Constitution.

It seems like ages ago now when supporters of same-sex marriage were trotting out the argument: “How will someone else’s marriage affect you?” In the time since Obergefell, however, we have unfortunately learned the answer. While Colorado baker Jack Phillips awaits his day in court — the Supreme Court, to be specific — after being sued […]


We are “on the very verge of the second dark ages,” according to Harper’s Bazaar writer Jennifer Wright, in her recent article entitled “If You Are Married to a Trump Supporter, Divorce Them.” With a headline like that, one would hope to find a strictly satirical piece, but instead, Wright leads us on a guided tour of the madness […]


In the same way that shows like Modern Family, Glee, and The New Normal played a role in swaying public opinion towards supporting same-sex marriage, the TLC show Sister Wives may be partially responsible for Americans’ increasing acceptance of polygamy. A new Gallup poll conducted from May 3-7 found that moral acceptance of polygamy rose […]


Victoria and Tom Miller, owners of a bridal shop in Pennsylvania, have become two of the latest victims of the LGBT movement’s war on traditional beliefs about marriage and sexuality.

Planned Parenthood has devised its latest tactic aimed at brainwashing children as young as preschool-age with their gender and sexual ideology. The organization’s new guidelines provide sexually explicit talking points for parents to use to infiltrate their children’s minds with Planned Parenthood’s views on topics such as “gender identity” and masturbation. While Planned Parenthood’s old […]


Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case of Jack Phillips: Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

[…]


Recent speculation has mounted regarding the potential retirement of Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy.

On Monday, the Supreme Court announced it would hear arguments next term in a landmark religious freedom case: Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights.

If you think that the legalization of polyamorous marriage in the US is a distant reality, think again. In Colombia, where same-sex marriage was legalized just over one year ago, the first three-person single-sex marriage has already been legally recognized. Hugo Prada, John Alejandro Rodriguez, and Manuel Jose Bermudez, the newly married “throuple,” say they […]


Stephen Tennes, a Michigan orchard and farm owner, has filed a lawsuit against the city of East Lansing for refusing to permit him to sell his fruits and vegetables at a city-sponsored farm market.

Married people live healthier, happier, and longer lives, on average. They are better off financially and even have sex more often. But skeptics persistently wonder whether it is marriage itself that makes people healthier or whether it is just an illusion, a marker for something else. That debate will continue as long as liberals believe […]


A Kentucky appeals court has just delivered a stunning blow to the ongoing effort to redefine opposition to same-sex marriage as a form of discrimination against gay people.

The mixed reviews of President Trump’s religious liberty executive order reflect two simple facts. First, by itself the order doesn’t do or change much. The ACLU tweeted that it had expected to be in court today over the executive order but instead concluded the order did little or nothing to change the status quo: Trump’s assertion […]


Last week, DNC Chairman Tom Perez made headlines for a statement suggesting pro-life Democrats ought to be ousted from the party, so that Democrats could maintain a single message.

Students in Duquesne University’s Student Government Association are urging the school’s administration to reconsider bringing popular food chain Chick-fil-A to their campus due to the views of the company’s owner on same-sex marriage.

Breaking the logjam on conscience protection at the state level, South Dakota passed a law protecting adoption agencies from being shut out because they do not place children in all kinds of families, including gay families, on an equal basis. Nothing in the law prevents gay adoptions or foster care. It merely permits adoption agencies […]
