US REFORM RABBIS APPROVE HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE

GREENSBORO, N.C., Mar 30 (LifeSiteNews.com) – On Wednesday the Central Conference of American Rabbis voted to approve a resolution allowing rabbis to preside at homosexual “marriage” ceremonies.  Due to the contention over the issue the meeting at the annual convention was held privately and only a voice vote was taken. Critics fear that the move will further alienate the Reform Jewish community from the more orthodox branches of Judaism since the Torah clearly condemns homosexual sex. The resolution said the relationship between active homosexual partners deserves affirmation by the Jewish marriage ritual. It called for sample ceremonies to be developed […]

HOMOSEXUAL BILL C-23 TO RESUME DEBATE NEXT WEEK

OTTAWA, Mar 30 (LifeSiteNews.com) – LifeSite has learned that the federal government’s omnibus homosexual legislation, Bill C-23, will likely begin its third and final debate on the bill as early as April 6. The bill has passed through committee with an amendment to include the traditional definition of marriage, which will unfortunately carry little legal weight and is only being used to counter the massive groundswell of opposition to the legislation. Furthermore, it is unlikely that the bill will be amended to allow benefits on the basis of dependency rather than on homosexual sex. An internal memo from the Justice […]
