LGBT Groups Mull Standstill at UN During Auschwitz Anniversary

Feb 13, 2015 by

by Stafano Gennarini JD, C-Fam: Introduction from Austin Ruse, President, C-Fam:  The LGBT agenda has had a very hard time gaining traction at the UN. Their wish is that the nebulous phrase “sexual orientation and gender identity” become a new category of nondiscrimination in international law. From this would flow the demand for gay marriage, adoption, and the closing down of religious freedom. They have gotten absolutely nowhere in the many years they have been trying, even though they are...

Feb 2, 2015 by

By Christopher Booker, Telegraph: My article on January 3, headlined “The most sinister court in Britain strikes yet again”, has for the past month been the “Most Viewed” Comment item on the Telegraph website.

‘Human rights’ have fallen into the hands of the Euro-tollahs

Nov 1, 2014 by

By Charles Moore, Telegraph: The rule of law, yes, but what about the rule of lawyers? In a democracy, the first is good; the second is bad.
