“No fewer than eight major studies from around the world have found homosexuality is not a genetic condition.
Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council says that these numerous, rigorous studies of identical twins have now made it impossible to argue that there is a ‘gay gene.’ If homosexuality were inborn and predetermined, then when one identical twin is homosexual, the other should be, as well.
Yet one study from Yale and Columbia Universities found homosexuality common to only 6.7 percent of male identical twins and 5.3 percent of female identical twins.
The low rate of common homosexuality in identical twins – around six percent – is easily explained by nurture, not nature.
Researchers Peter Bearman and Hannah Brueckner concluded that environment was the determining factor. They rejected outright that ‘genetic influence independent of social context’ as the reason for homosexuality. ‘(O)ur results support the hypothesis that less gendered socialization in early childhood and preadolescence shapes subsequent same-sex romantic preferences.’
‘Less gendered socialization’ means, a boy was without a positive father figure, or a girl was without a positive mother figure.
In light of the evidence, Sprigg said simply, ‘No one is born gay.’” — Mark Hodges

Don’t you just despise those comments from the left who say “that’s not who we are?” and Cupp’s “That’s not the America we live in” is equally as bad.
I say “it is the who we should be!” and to Cupp, “it is the America I would like to live in”!

And nothing (but a “sit-down”) happened to the teacher? A clear case that she should have been fired.

Here is my Google Fact Check. April 2015:(CNSNews.com) – The number of Americans 16 years and older who did not participate in the labor force–meaning they neither had a job nor actively sought one in the last four weeks–rose from 92,898,000 in February to 93,175,000 in March, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. So Trump is right! Not the AP “fact checker”.
Plus: In today’s labor market, the unemployment rate drastically understates the weakness of job opportunities. This is due to the existence of a large pool of “missing workers”–potential workers who, because of weak job opportunities, are neither employed nor actively seeking a job. In other words, these are people who would be either working or looking for work if job opportunities were significantly stronger. Because jobless workers are only counted as unemployed if they are actively seeking work, these “missing workers” are not reflected in the unemployment rate.

Something is very wrong! “Officials said the U.S. was already using intelligence to help France identify targets in the flurry of airstrikes France launched against the Islamic State’s stronghold in Syria following the attacks”. If we know of these target why haven’t WE already bombed them? Has Obama forbidden the military to bomb known ISIS targets?

DONE DOWN? (Perhaps this will convince the right to done down their incessant violent rhetoric). Gee, these liberals, it seems, that they could not wait to even correct their misspelling before posting this….

If those quotes of the ‘professor’ are accurate, she should be required to take remedial English.

Seems as if every one of these shootings goes back to the officer pulled him over or went up to the suspects and 1). They run or 2). they resist arrest. I maintain nothing would have happened to any of these people if they would just comply with the officers demands.
Resistance is futile they should just prepare to be assimilated
Running from the cops is a black privilege.

Whatever happened to the ‘good old days’ where a business posted a sign saying something to the effect:
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone? And has the “no shirt no shoes no service” also gone the way of the dinosaur?
If that was the case, then they should have been amending the "no-shirts-no-shoes-no service" law.

Due to his injuries, Mr. K. has never served in the military and therefore probably does not fully understand the Military position. Yes we always want to ‘bring them home’ but someone who actively consorts with the enemy and even got fellow soldiers killed and wounded is not a person to be granted anything but scorn. Mr. K should talk with the wife of a fellow soldier who was wounded (looking for Bergdahl) and is now paralyzed much like Mr. K. Perhaps that would change his mind!
It's just pure speculation that he consorted with the Taliban though.
Wow, that's pretty harsh, scorn?

Another company to add to the list of ones NOT to use. Glad they are going downhill. Time for the ‘gay’ community (yeah you Timmy Cook) to show some tolerance….here are just three examples:Christian bakers lose their shops over same-sex “weddings,” Catholic nuns are forced to sue for the right not to cover birth control, and Mormon policemen are fired for not doing enough to celebrate gay pride.

I think Matt has done Joyce Meyers a disservice. He states she said “she is not a sinner”. So did Paul: Romans 7:20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. Perhaps she was stating that. Here is one our Pastor says: people often say “If God wills it, it will happen”. This is a lie. Explanation: Does God want everyone ‘saved’ and not to go to Hell? Answer: YES! But is everyone saved? Answer: NO!
To be saved or not to be saved is an individual choice. In other words, you believe that Christ is or is not your savior. You put your faith in him or not. Christ is the only path to God. However, I don't think I would put stock in words from someone who is a close friend of Oprah.

6. Garner did not die at the scene of the confrontation. He suffered cardiac arrest in the ambulance taking him to the hospital and was pronounced dead about an hour later.
7. Much has been made of the fact that the use of chokeholds by police is prohibited in New York City. But officers reportedly still use them. Between 2009 and mid-2014, the Civilian Complaint Review Board received 1,128 chokehold allegations.
Patrick Lynch, president of the New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said: “It was clear that the officer’s intention was to do nothing more than take Mr. Garner into custody as instructed, and that he used the takedown technique that he learned in the academy when Mr. Garner refused.”
8. The grand jury began hearing the case on Sept. 29 and did not reach a decision until Wednesday, so there is much testimony that was presented that has not been made public.
9. The 23-member grand jury included nine non-white jurors.
10. In order to find Officer Pantaleo criminally negligent, the grand jury would have had to determine that he knew there was a “substantial risk” that Garner would have died due to the takedown.

The Mainstream Media doesn’t tell these facts:
1. There is no doubt that Garner was resisting an arrest for illegally selling untaxed cigarettes. Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik put it succinctly: “You cannot resist arrest. If Eric Garner did not resist arrest, the outcome of this case would have been very different,” he told Newsmax. “He wouldn’t be dead today.
“Regardless of what the arrest was for, the officers don’t have the ability to say, ‘Well, this is a minor arrest, so we’re just going to ignore you.’”
2. The video of the July 17 incident clearly shows Garner, an African-American, swatting away the arms of a white officer seeking to take him into custody, telling him: “Don’t touch me!”
3. Garner, 43, had history of more than 30 arrests dating back to 1980, on charges including assault and grand larceny.
4. At the time of his death, Garner was out on bail after being charged with illegally selling cigarettes, driving without a license, marijuana possession and false impersonation.
5. The chokehold that Patrolman Daniel Pantaleo put on Garner was reported to have contributed to his death. But Garner, who was 6-foot-3 and weighed 350 pounds, suffered from a number of health problems, including heart disease, severe asthma, diabetes, obesity, and sleep apnea. Pantaleo’s attorney and police union officials argued that Garner’s poor health was the main cause of his death.
6. Garner did not die at the scene of the confrontation.

It is very weird that Oregon was the first U.S. state to make it legal for a doctor to prescribe a life-ending drug to a terminally ill patient of sound mind who makes the request. Yet, a prison warden cannot have access to the drug for using on death row prisoners…..
My understanding is this ‘drug’ puts one to sleep, and death occurs about one hour later.

2 Corinthians 5:8
We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
Jesus actually talked more about Hell than he did about heaven. It is a real place.

I also have this problem. I get Glenn’s email, and then when I go to the Blaze I get a pop-up to sign up for email….seems as if they could check before popping up that ad! Too many ads makes the site less then fun to read!

What ever happened to those old signs that said, “We reserve the right to refuse service to…..”??? What happened to that right?
You are welcome to refuse service for any reason....
....you just cannot refuse service because of your own bigotry.....

I wonder if they were to go ahead and perform the ceremony, but add in all the verses that reject homosexuality? And put those verses on their walls? Such as: 1 Timothy 1:10
for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine….
