Dr. Carson was saying that a person can be “conditioned” to accept homosexuality, both personally and for others. Glenn has been conditioned to accept it for others. Men in prison can be conditioned to accept it personally and begin to practice it. It is similar psychologically to the Stockholm Syndrome.
Ripe, if you’re honest with yourself, you can backtrack in your life as to how it came about for you, too. All of us have that capacity to examine our lives and arrive at the truth. It may take some help from others to do that, but it is possible.

He’s the real deal. Within a day or two of the devastating Moore, OK tornado on 5/20/13, KD ponied up $1 million of his own cash money for relief. He didn’t wait. Didn’t stick his finger up to see which way the wind was blowing, to see what others were doing. He led. He acted. We are thankful he is here, and sure hope he’s happy here, and stays here!

Hanging on the wall of the Firsties Club (a bar/grill for senior cadets and their guests with an Army athletics theme) at West Point (the USMA) is a small plaque with these words, as I remember them: “The value of athletics comes not from winning the game but from learning the lesson that life is the greatest of all games. Play it with courage, wisdom, and loyalty.”

Now don’t be too sure about apes. I refer to The Blaze story about the radio interview with Adam Lanza wherein he provides details about Travis the Chimp and Travis’ ability to watch TV and operate a remote, look at pictures on the internet, honk a car horn, and chew a woman’s face off. Sounds like a human to me.

Thanks from me, too, Blaze for introducing this website. It is now on my favorites bar.

Now THAT is a brutal comment! But wicked funny. That said, it does restore my hope for the world that there are heterosexuals in the theatre industry still.

Love is giving someone the Truth, in a loving manner. Not in snarling, condemning fashion, but in a fashion that conveys the sincerity of love that should reside in, and emanate from, the giver’s heart (and soul). And the Truth is, homosexuals are violating Natural Law and are convinced it is okay because they are mostly lying to themselves. Is it any wonder this waitress appears to be caught in another lie?

Yes! I agree! A big “The Blaze” emblazoned across a golf bag would be catchy for sure. Do it, Glenn!

Yeah, right. Modern Man sure has his act together doesn’t he? The Catholic Church has been around for 2,000 years my friend and will last as long as is required. The reason being that it doesn’t deal in left/right, conservative/liberal/progressive; it deals in true/false. People know that homosexuality is disordered because it is written upon our hearts as Truth. Just because modern thinking may endorse or condone something for a time doesn’t make it true. It may take two centuries to correct itself, it has before, and the Catholic Church has seen it do thus. More than once.

Jedi, it’s all about education isn’t it? Our schools aren’t allowed to teach morals, or even “wisdom”, because whose set of morals/wisdom would they be. Alas, we must suffer much more before we can all agree on some kind of set. And the suffering may be great indeed.

I think your statements are on the money. Mr. JamesCrow’s thoughts show a very limited perception of what is transpiring in our culture. A “live and let live” philosophy sounds libertarian and a great way to “live”. But in reality, if we don’t look out for each other, identify what our mutual problems are and what their root causes are, and try to help each other alleviate them, I’m afraid we will find ourselves living a “live and let die” philosophy, as in relationships, marriages, and yes, even lives.

Natural Law, Natural Law, Natural Law. Look into it. No, delve into it deeply. Learn about it. Our nation was founded on it. Basically, it is those truths which existed before man created laws so that we could live together in peace. The truth about what God intended for our bodies to do in the realm of sexuality/procreation/family could be said to be one of truths “that we hold to be self-evident”.
Those that sow seeds of confusion are culpable for the consequences. I grow weary of being blamed for youth suicides for not being appropriately approving. I’m not the one sowing confusion. The fact is they are fighting Natural Law and MUST have our constant approval in an attempt to quiet that nagging voice in their conscience. The one that tells them they are in fact wrong. We all have that gift, that voice, the Voice of God, to help us in our daily determination of right and wrong.

We must be doing some good to make him howl like that. Press on, Constitutionalists everywhere! The tide of the battle may be turning!

I’m typing this through blurry eyes after watching just the trailer. That kind of courage should touch any human soul because ultimately what drives such courage is tremendous love. I read the book in one sitting. That’s how powerful it is.

This is the first I’ve heard of the website St. Sebastian’s Angels and I’ve just concluded some quick research on it. As a cradle Catholic I’m shocked! Even reeling a little bit. I was around priests as an altar boy growing up and I never ever even suspected something like that. All I can say is the Church has been in really bad shape previously in its history. There have been multiple episodes of weakness in the Church’s history from a holiness perspective. I’m taking a Church history class right now and apparently it got pretty bad in the 9th century. Always the Holy Spirit raised up some great man or woman to be that Great Reformer that the Church so desperately needed.
Remember that the laity share in the mission of the Church, too. That mission is to take the Gospel into every corner of the world. Right now we have pockets of sinful hierarchy that are giving scandal. It is up to the laity to hold their feet to the fire and shine the light of Truth on their behavior/speech.
COME HOLY SPIRIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve always maintained that all scientific discovery simply reveals the Face of God a little more.

Where does intelligence come from? The universe is infused with it, especially in living organisms we see on the Earth. The intelligence found at the microbiological level is astounding! Why is there a drive towards greater and greater intelligence? Are we drawn to The Intelligence? Could it be that The Intelligence is what we stupid, stupid people commonly call “God”.
Truth, beauty, and goodness. Do those things exist? Where do they come from? They aren’t measurable, quantifiable, but every person alive knows they exist. But not in a beaker in a lab or in some digital meter. Rather in the “hearts” of mankind. You atheists will say it’s all in our brains. That is most likely true and isn’t it amazing that the drive towards intelligence, stored in our brains, enabled us to know Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.

After having had surgery for a detached retina, I have been dealing with dry eye syndrome. That was really therapeutic for my eye! Thanks!
Don’t you just love “love”.

The thing is, Charles, her faith should be informing her politics, not the other way around. Faith is a higher realm than politics. The more we have politicians perceiving politics as a “faith-free zone” the more we will spiral into chaos. As a Catholic in the public arena, she is actually held to a higher standard regarding her public pronouncements. If she misrepresents Catholic teaching on morals or on matters of faith, that is called “giving scandal” and it is a sin. She does this proudly while still proclaiming herself to be a devout Catholic (goes to Mass don’t cha know?). She should be denied Holy Communion until she makes a good confession and repents. Don’t mean to harsh anyone’s mellow, but that, too, is Catholic teaching. Again, she is held to a higher standard because of her visibility. Abortion isn’t just any issue, it is the most fundamental of issues. A Catholic has to get that one right.
The Catholic Church is in the mess it’s in because of mushy teaching from the pulpit. I’m afraid our clergy have been afraid of losing parishioners (and $) and don’t want to run anyone off. I think that is starting to change a little with the Church standing up to that particularly untenable aspect of Obamacare. Now, believe me, the pews are only occupied by sinners and we are all in need of atonement, but most of us aren’t leading people astray on purpose, as Pelosi is. Fr. Pavone is right, either live your faith correctly (as best you can), or re

Not many are aware that, in 2012, maybe 2011, the APA removed pedophilia as a disorder from the DSM. Now it’s simply a preference. I’ve written on the Blaze about this before. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see the trajectory of that decision. We’ve seen what happened when they removed homosexuality. I may not live to see this, but I predict the result of that decision will be the lowering of the age of consent to something that would blow our minds today (age 12? age 10?) but will be seriously argued for by supposedly serious people. Sitcoms with likeable, loveable, funny, and kind pedophiles that really love children. These sitcoms will eventually move to featuring adult-child sexual relationships. Ditto for movies. The child will be portrayed as happy and emotionally well-balanced. I give it thirty years, tops. Things progress much faster these days so it won’t take the forty years that the mainstreaming of homosexuality took.
Before you come down on me, I am not a hater as much as you’d like to think I am. The fact is that, on its face, homosexuality is a disorder. It is not at all in harmony with nature, much less nature’s creator, God. When a culture embraces disorder, chaos is bound to ensue. Always has, always will.
You'll get no argument from me =) The APA can remove every mental disorder from their DSM-II...pedophilia is, and will always be a serious mental disorder. There is NO love involved when an adult molests/assaults an innocent CHILD. It IS evil, and those who prey on the innocents, as well as those who condone their actions WILL face God's wrath.
Psalm 14:1 'Fools say to themselves 'There is no God.' They are corrupt and commit evil deeds, not one of them practices what is good.'
