Gay Marriage Arguments Divide Supreme Court Justices

WEB Notes: Kennedy stated this would be a hard decision for him, but he see’s the other side as well. He will most likely be the deciding vote and if you read this whole article you get the feeling he will vote to allow homosexual marriage. It will take about two months to deliberate.

(Source: NY Times) – The Supreme Court on Tuesday seemed deeply divided about one of the great civil rights issues of the age: whether the Constitution guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry.

WEB Notes: This is going to be very interesting and while we have different beliefs then these men they are our Christian brothers and they so far appear to be making a stand and for that they should be commended. Now they need to hold firm and stand by their word.

First transgender kids club in Missouri

WEB Notes: Some of the children aged 5-12 do not know their “gender”? It is very simple, what you are born with identifies what you are period. I cannot believe this was published. I do not believe for one minute these kids do not know if they are a boy or a girl. If so they are lacking an education, they do not need to be confused further by telling them it is okay to be the opposite of what they are. Confusion.

(Source: Fox) – Bruce Jenner’s decision to transition from a man into a woman has the entire country talking about what it means to be transgender.  There are lots of support groups for transgender teenagers and adults, but until now, none for children.  Children’s Hospital in St. Louis is hosting the first ever kids club for transgender children ages 5 to 12.  Children’s is the #6 hospital in the country.

Huckabee: ‘We Are Moving Rapidly Toward the Criminalization of Christianity’

WEB Notes: A lot of people talk about Christian persecution in this country which is overblown in many cases. Look at other parts of the world and Christians are killed for their belief. However, this country is rapidly changing and a vote by the Supreme Court to allow homosexual marriage will have far-reaching implications including demands for pastors to marry homosexuals. Now that is persecution and a good shot for many of us to show God how Christian we really are…

(Source: CNS News) – The persecution of Christians because of their moral opposition to homosexual behavior and so-called gay marriage is on the rise in America, to the point where “Christian convictions are under attack as never before” and “we are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity,” said former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is also an ordained Southern Baptist minister.
