A Satanist group in the United States has announced plans to use so-called anti-discrimination laws to force Christian bakers to bake cakes that glorify Satanism.
It appears that this newest attempt to harass Christians is a reaction to the Masterpiece Cakeshop case soon to be considered by the U.S. Supreme Court, in which a brave baker resists the pressure of fanatical LGBT activists who want him to bake a cake for a same-sex “wedding”. As the group says, “because sexual orientation is not a protected class under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, (whereas race and religion are), there is a good chance that the right to discriminate against gay couples will be affirmed as a constitutional liberty.”
And further: “Because religion is a protected class, a baker may refuse service to LGBTQ people, but they may not refuse service based upon someone’s religion. If they aren’t willing to make a cake for same-sex unions, let’s have them make a cake to honor Satan instead.” Continue reading
by Anthony Esolen, Crisis Magazine, commenting on a book by a notorious Catholic priest
Father James G. Martin, S.J., is either a cruel or a foolish man. It does not seem to be the first. But if it is not that, it must be the second, because that alone can explain how a Catholic priest can live in the midst of massive and unprecedented family breakdown, and the chaos, loneliness, and alienation consequent upon it, and still wave the banner for the latest innovation in sexual confusion.

In 1989, I walked into the world famous Castro District of San Francisco as a disaffected young man of almost nineteen years of age. I had grown up bullied and lonely, and I was looking to finally belong. Almost since I was a child nearing adolescence, the other boys at school instinctively rejected me. While they made the decisive testosterone fueled jump to more masculine pursuits, such as aggressive schoolyard play and sports, I was timid and unsure. While their voices deepened and sounded increasingly confident, mine remained high-pitched but strangely muted. While they grew taller and filled-out, I just became thinner and ganglier. The pre-macho boys were typically the best at playing kick-ball and inevitably turn out to be recess and PE team captains. Focusing on my embarrassing apparent lack of skill, they were always quick to ridicule and loudly point out my utter worthlessness. No one ever wanted me on their team. After even the smaller girls got picked, I was always the default last man standing.
Displaying the same lack of backbone in face of the powerful LGBT lobby as conservative parties across the EU, the Maltese National Party (NP) has signalled its intent to go along with the Labour Government’s planned introduction of same-sex “marriage” in Malta. Continue reading
The third largest political force in the European Parliament – the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) – elected as their new co-chair on 6 July the distinguished Polish professor of philosophy, Ryszard Legutko. LGBT militants are furious, smearing him as a “homophobe” due to his very solid natural law defence of the family and marriage. Continue reading
In stark contrast to the whining of the LGBT-lobby, the influence of openly professed sexual perverts seems to keep increasing in the EU, securing them a share of political power that by far exceeds their numbers. While Berlin and Paris were the first major cities to have openly sodomite politicians as mayors, Germany had a gay foreign minister, the early-deceased Guido Westerwelle, who caused considerable embarassment by taking his “partner” (not “spouse”, as Germany does not provide for sodo-“marriage”) along on his diplomatic missions. Luxembourg was the first country to have a sodo-“married” Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel.
Now it’s Ireland’s turn. Leo Varadkar, the Minister for Social Protection, is clearly the media favourite to take over the Fine Gael (EPP) party leadership from Taoiseach Enda Kenny who announced his resignation Wednesday. Continue reading
Ulrike Lunacek (Greens), openly lesbian EP Vice-President notorious for her abortion-and-sodomy militantism, is going to leave the European Parliament. She will return to her native Austria to be the Green Party’s “lead candidate” (Spitzenkandidat) in the upcoming national elections. Continue reading
