LITTLE ROCK, September 22, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a case which was voted one of the most spiked stories of 1999, Arkansas Supreme Court has upheld the 25-year sentence against a homosexual man who with his male partner raped and killed a young boy.  Joshua Macabe Brown, then 22, and Davis Don Carpenter, then 38, were convicted in 1999 of the brutal rape and murder of 13-year-old Jesse Derkhising.  The story did not gain national prominence until featured in a column by WorldNetDaily founder and editor-in-chief Joseph Farah.  Rather than give prominent coverage to the Derkhising case, most media focused […]

TORONTO, September 18, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Senior judges involved in some of the most high-profile judicial rulings concerning homosexuality have apparently cozy ties to homosexual activists, says a report from REAL Women of Canada.  “If there is anyone left in Canada who still believes that our judges are fair and impartial on the homosexual issue,” the group says, they need only review the guest list of parties on June 26, 2003 connected with this summer’s Gay Pride Week.  On a guest list was Ontario Superior Court Justice Harry LaForme, who wrote the majority decision in support of same-sex marriage. “He […]
