Lithuanian Law: Public Agitation for Homosexual Acts is Detrimental to Minors

Hungarian Court Strikes Down Heterosexual and Same-sex Civil Unions over Damage to the Family

By Ellen M. Rice BUDAPEST, Hungary, December 16, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Yesterday Hungary’s Constitutional Court struck down Parliament’s Domestic Partnership Act, which gave legal recognition to unmarried and same-sex partnerships, because the Act diminished the importance of true marriage.

The Hungarian Court says the […]

Homosexual Couples Can Now List Both Names on New York Birth Certificates

By Kathleen Gilbert NEW YORK, December 16, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Homosexual couples in much of New York who have been “married” out of state can now list both their names on children’s birth certificates.  While New York law does not allow same-sex unions to be called marriages, the new birth certificates follow Gov. David Paterson’s initiative to revamp New York law to extend more privileges to homosexuals.  In May, Paterson issued a directive to state agencies ordering them to respect out-of-state homosexual “marriages.” The state Health Department agreed to the change Friday in compliance with the lawsuit of a Canada-“wed” […]

UNICEF: Daycare is “A high-stakes gamble with today’s children and tomorrow’s world”

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski December 16, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A surprising new document from UNICEF puts the spotlight on the possible fallout of the decreasing role of the family in raising young children, and the proliferation of daycare in affluent western nations. “What we are now witnessing across the industrialized world,” says the UNICEF report, “can fairly be described as a revolution in how the majority of young children are being brought up.” The report observes that “most children in the developed world are spending their earliest years in some form of care outside the home.” According to the organization, […]

Biblical Billboards Near Strip Clubs, Abortuaries, Throw down the Gauntlet to Culture of Death

One billboard silently condemns two strip clubs across the way with the message: “Anyone that looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:28.” “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman: that is detestable. Leviticus 18:12,” proclaims a second billboard near two bars popular among homosexuals. […]
