Student Suspended for Jesus Talk Sues Wash. School

Michael Leal has been suspended repeatedly and threatened with expulsion from Cascade High School for telling other students about his faith and distributing Christian publications during free time at school, and so the senior student is suing the Everett Public Schools in suburban Seattle for violating his First Amendment religious liberty and free speech in U.S. District Court in Seattle (Judge Thomas Zilly).
"It has been well established by court precedent that students do not leave their free speech rights at the schoolhouse door. Unfortunately certain officials at the school have a disagreement on this matter which is why it has become necessary to file this lawsuit."
-- Conrad Reynoldson, a Seattle attorney who is working with the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) to represent Leal.

-- From "Seattle-area teen sues school after being suspended for 'disruptive' preaching of Christianity" by Matt Bradwell, UPI 11/19/14

Michael Leal does not deny that he repeatedly passed out mass-produced Christian literature at suburban Seattle Cascade High School, and claims he was fully within his rights to do so.

But school officials say Leal was disciplined not for evangelizing, but creating a "substantial disruption," and that distinction was made clear at the time of each suspension.

"At no time was Mr. Leal told that his distribution of material or his statements were inappropriate at school because of their religious content," Michael Patterson, attorney for Everett School, said in a letter to Leal's representation obtained by the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

"Rather, he was informed of District policy ... and told that he needed to comply with it. He was also informed that he could not create a substantial disruption at school or school events."

From "Student punished for preaching sues Everett school district" by Mike Carter, Seattle Times staff reporter 11/19/14

Just after school started in early September, Leal was handing out [the “How to Know God”] pamphlet in the lunchroom and talking to other students about his religious beliefs. He was confronted by a school counselor and taken to the office of Principal Cathy Woods, according to the lawsuit.

Leal claims that Woods told him the tract was “proselytizing” and that he was prohibited from handing it out “because it may offend students and make them upset.”

On Oct. 1, Leal attended the bonfire event on the high-school campus, where the lawsuit said school officials twice interrupted his preaching — first at the bonfire and again at a nearby dance. Leal said he also was handing out religious tracts.

Woods reportedly told him: “You need to stop,” which the lawsuit acknowledges he did, “after 15 or 20 minutes” and after he was told police were on their way. In the interim, Leal claims that he “respectfully began to express his views regarding the claims of the Christian faith” to the administrators, who responded by telling him: “We don’t want you preaching to us!”

Two days later, the lawsuit alleges Leal went to a school volleyball game, where he “walked around the school among the other attendees, and gave tracts to parents and students who wanted one.”

School officials said the activities violate the district’s policies on student conduct and freedom of expression, according to court documents.

From "High schooler suspended after preaching claims religious persecution, sues" By Levi Pulkkinen, Seattle Post-Intelligencer Staff 11/18/14

[After the volleyball incident,] He was back to preaching and passing out tracts the next day, speaking with other students during his lunch break and, according to the district, during class. His attorneys claim he didn’t disrupt the school and did so only during non-instructional time; Patterson said Leal shouted “Praise the Lord” when he and other students were told to get back to work during a senior seminar.

Suspended again – that time for “distribution of religious material and failure to comply with school rules” – Leal was told he would be expelled if he continued. That prompted a Pacific Justice Institute attorney to send a letter to the district on his client’s behalf, claiming district policy makes clear students are allowed to distribute religious tracts.

“Leal has not now, nor has he ever, used preaching or distribution of literature, to harass, intimidate, or bully any students, school employees, or others on campus,” the attorneys said in court papers. “Instead, Leal presents general propositions to his classmates. …

“Leal does not point out or identify any individual in the gathering of students as a sinner.”

From "Christian beliefs put student in danger of expulsion" by Bob Unruh, World Net Daily 11/29/14

According to the complaint, the principal, Woods, “instructed Leal that she must give him permission to hand out tracts, and further that she needed to monitor him.”

“She attempted to justify her position by stating that if she allowed Leal to ‘hand out tracts and to talk about Jesus she would be breaking the law.’ Attempting to understand the principal’s position clearly, Leal asked to confirm that ‘if you allow me to hand out tracts and to talk about Jesus, then you would be breaking the law?’ Woods’ response was an unqualified ‘yes,’” according to the complaint.

The complaint said the school responded by stating a rule that gives the principal “unbridled discretion” to restrict the student’s speech.

Conrad Reynoldson, who is serving PJI as local counsel on the case, said the policies and procedures challenged in this case would prevent students from handing out not only Gospel tracts but also copies of the Constitution.

Along with the district, the complaint names as defendants Supt. Gary Cohn, Cascade High School principal Cathy Woods and Cascade assistant principals Robert Aguilar and Laura Phillips.

Obama's Cross-dressing Military Fantasy is Reality

A new analysis of a Department of Defense policy issued August 5, 2014, by legal and military experts with the Palm Center (a San Francisco-based Gay Agenda think tank), reveals that transgender personnel no longer must be placed on a path to discharge.
"By this new regulation, the Pentagon has gotten out of the business of deciding when service members are fit or unfit for duty, and that's a big policy change. . . . We're closer to transgender service than we've ever been."

-- From "Report: Loophole could allow transgender troops to serve under new DoD policy" by Patricia Kime, Staff Writer, Military Times 11/26/14

The update — to Defense Department Instruction 1332.18, Disability Evaluation System — provides a loophole for the services to let transgender troops serve instead of requiring administrative separation, the Palm Center says.

The old policy listed transgender identity as a "congenital or developmental defect" that mandated administrative separation.

The instruction issued Aug. 5 drops that provision, which the activists, including three retired flag or general officers, representatives from the ACLU, the Transgender American Veterans Association and others, say means the services now can discharge individuals with perceived defects only if those defects interfere with their performance or duty assignment.

A March 2014 report from the Transgender Military Service Commission estimates that nearly 15,500 transgender individuals serve in uniform across all branches.

[Because] the Department of Defense deleted its list of medically disqualifying and administratively disqualifying conditions in August. Now only conditions that impair fitness for duty or deployment qualify [for discharge].

In a joint statement issued Wednesday, retired Lt. Gen. Claudia Kennedy, Maj. Gen. Vance Coleman, Rear Adm. Jamie Barnett and seven LGBT leaders urged the military to update their noncompliant rules.

“Ultimate authority for ordering the elimination of discriminatory military policy rests with the President of the United States, and if the Services decline to comply with DOD rules, or if DOD declines to eliminate discriminatory policy, the Commander-in-Chief should take executive action to effect the change,” the statement read.

From "Transgender troops say they want to serve openly" by Patricia Kime, Staff Writer, Military Times 10/24/14

[Traditionally,] Transgenders are barred from serving openly in the U.S. military by Defense Department Instruction 6130.03, which prohibits people with "current or history of psychosexual conditions, including but not limited to transexualism, exhibitionism, transvestism, voyeurism and other paraphilias."

But transgender service members who spoke at "Perspectives on Transgender Military Service from Around the Globe," sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Palm Center, a California-based policy think tank, say sexual identity is neither a mental nor physical barrier to serving.

In late 2012, the American Psychiatric Association approved a revision to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual that eliminated the term "gender identity disorder" in favor of "gender dysphoria" to describe men and women whose biological sex conflicts with the gender in which they identify.

The drop of the word "disorder" is seen by many as an acknowledgment that the condition is not pathological, and any distress or anxiety associated with gender identification issues may be related to the angst of living in a body one doesn't believe is gender-correct and outside stressors related to the stigma of falling outside gender norms.

The three retired generals are Major General Gale S. Pollock, former acting Surgeon General of the US Army; Brigadier General Clara Adams-Ender, former Chief of the US Army Nurse Corps; and Brigadier General Thomas A. Kolditz, a Yale University professor and Professor Emeritus at the US Military Academy at West Point. They note Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel's statements in May that he is open to reviewing the military's ban on transgender service members.

"We spent three months serving on a research commission that investigated administrative aspects of transgender military service, with a view toward maintaining readiness and alignment with core military values of dignity and respect. Today, our commission releases a report, which focuses on how to implement inclusive policy in allowing transgender Americans to serve their country," the three retired generals said in a joint statement. "Our conclusion is that allowing transgender personnel to serve openly is administratively feasible and will not be burdensome or complicated. Three months have passed since Defense Secretary Hagel announced a willingness to review the military's ban on transgender service, an effort the White House indicated it supports. Our new report shows that implementation could proceed immediately and will be successful in its execution.”

Following Hagel's statements on the topic, the administration of President Barack Obama voiced support for such a review.

From "Will the Military Lift Its Ban on Transgender Troops?" by Tierney Sneed, U.S. News & World Report 10/22/14

Many people don’t realize that when Congress and President Barack Obama repealed the military’s ban on openly gay, lesbian and bisexual service members – a policy known as “don’t ask, don’t tell” – its prohibitions on transgender people openly serving remained in place. In fact, even members of the military are at times unaware of the ban, according to some panelists’ accounts of coming out.

But the pressure to change the policy appears poised to grow, as the broader transgender rights movement takes a more prominent societal role. . . .

The military’s transgender policy is embedded in medical regulations dating back to the outdated notion that gender nonconformity equated to mental illness . . .

Concerns have been raised about changes needed to be made to military protocols if the ban is lifted – from the specific health care needs of transgender people to the so-called shower question, or what would happen in scenarios that require non-transgender troops and their transgender colleagues to disrobe together.

Lone Complaint = No Christmas Break at Mass. School

After only one parent objected to the Marshfield, Massachusetts school calendar including the words "Christmas Break," this past September the school board voted 3-2 to rename it "Winter Break" in order to be "inclusive."  Since then, over 4,200 residents petitioned a reversal of that decision, so this week, the board repeated the same vote in front of a large audience of Christmas supporters.
“Christmas is the celebration of the birth of baby, a message of peace. … Does that offend you? Does the birth of a baby offend you? Christmas is significant. It’s what the people of Marshfield want on their calendar.”

The petition calls for the School Committee to reconsider its September decision to change the name of December’s break to Holiday Break from Christmas Vacation.

. . . at the committee’s Oct. 14 meeting, seven residents spoke during public comment asking the committee to return Christmas to the break’s name. Taylor brought forth her initial petition with 443 signatures asking to restore "Christmas Vacation" to the district’s calendar.

Taylor said she was disappointed that the School Committee decided not to vote again on the issue.

Florida High School Facebook Madam: Virgins $100

17-year-old Alexa Nicole De Armas was arrested for operating a Facebook-based prostitution ring using fellow Sarasota County high school female classmates.  Experienced teenage hookers were advertised for as little as $40 plus a bottle of booze, whereas the short supply of virgin girls were priced slightly higher.

A Venice High School student, 15-year-old Julian Luis Mathena, also was arrested and charged with human trafficking, the Venice Police Department announced Tuesday.

The alleged ring first came to light in October after four students at Venice High School told administrators that De Armas and Mathena wanted them to join, according to police. About the same time, police looked into reports of a Riverview High School student's involvement with [a 21-year-old customer, John Michael] Mosher.

The two students are said to have come up with a plan over the summer to prostitute teens for money and alcohol. Police documents indicate that the ringleader arranged for Mosher to have sex with the 15-year-old girl in a community pool shed in August.

[Venice Police Capt. Tom] Mattmuller said an investigation into the prostitution ring is still ongoing, but that his department currently did not expect to make any more arrests.

“This looks like it is isolated between Sarasota High School, Venice High School and Riverview High School,” he said.

Police reported Monday that they had also arrested John Michael Mosher, 21, on a felony charge of sexual battery on a victim older than 12. In August, he reportedly paid $40 and a bottle of liquor to have sex with a 15-year-old girl that Mathena and De Armas recruited from Riverview High School.

Mattmuller said the girl appeared to have been the only person prostituted by Mathena and De Armas, although at least four more had been solicited by the pair after they were paid by Mosher.

After Mosher paid for the sex, the police reports said, De Armas and an accomplice began trying to recruit other girls to have sex with clients to gain money and alcohol. They planned to use some of the money to buy narcotics, according to witness statements to police.

During a police investigation after a search warrant was issued for De Armas' Facebook account, police said they found conversations between potential business partners, participants and details of how transactions would be made; prices for services included $50 to $70 to perform oral sex and $100 for intercourse with a virgin. They considered a 40 percent profit split for prostitutes.

Atlanta Fires Fire Chief for 'Anti-gay' Bible Study

Kelvin J. Cochran, Fire Chief of Atlanta, Georgia, and former member of the Obama administration, has been (UPDATED) fired because he self-published a compilation of his Christian Bible studies on his own time last year.  The book includes God's definition of marriage and sexual sinfulness, which enraged a city council member who says he's a homosexual.
"[Cochran's Bible study] is inconsistent with the administration's work to make Atlanta a more welcoming city for all citizens . . ." the mayor said, as he denounced the fire chief — who IS a citizen — for stating his religious beliefs.

“I am not going through this because of something I have done,” he said. “I am going through this because of something that (God) is doing in the body of Christ and in my life.”

“That book is not about sexuality,” Cochran said. “But you can’t talk about Christian men overcoming the stronghold of condemnation unless you talk about sex, because men have a challenge in that area. You can’t talk about sex unless you talk about God’s purpose for sex, which was procreation, to multiply.”

“I believe God is going to use my life to demonstrate publicly the kingdom consequences for standing on his word and standing on the values that he has embraced in his holy book, the Holy Bible,” he said.

Maryland’s stormwater remediation fee has been criticized ever since it became law in 2013. One of its main detractors is Gov.-elect Larry Hogan (R), who derisively calls the fee a “rain tax” and has promised to try to repeal it.

The fee applies to public and private properties, commercial and residential, and is assessed according to the size of each property’s impervious surface — solid material that blocks stormwater from being absorbed and filtered by the underlying soil.

In Prince George’s, churches are some of the largest properties in the county, with sprawling parking lots and generous acreage.

Churches, synagogues, mosques and other houses of worship are an “untapped resource” to help inspire the larger community to “do what is right,” Jon Capacasa of the Environmental Protection Agency said.

Part of the lesson plan at a workshop at the Oregon Adolescent Sexuality Conference is an adult website called Virtual Fem. In addition to the content from that website, numerous handouts, such as one that encourages cyber and phone sex, have been passed out to high school and middle school students in attendance.

The pamphlets go on to suggest other ways students can engage in intimate activities without going all the way, including bathing together, shaving each other, wearing each other’s underwear, role playing, buying an extra-large pair of pajama bottoms to sleep in together, lap dances and strip teases.

“All kinds of speakers about Internet porn, using Internet sex toys, using meth as is shown in this book for when you’re engaging in sex. It encourages using meth because it helps your sexual drive and what not in here,” said [educator Lisa] Maloney. “It says in this booklet that was handed out and given out to all young people.”

In the WISE curriculum [the grant behind the conference], sixth grade students are asked, “How do people express their sexual feelings?” The answers they’re given to choose from include anal sex, oral sex and sexual fantasy.

When confronted about the graphic content, the conference’s director, Brad Victor, declined to comment about one session in particular about performing sex acts over Skype and whether those sessions could potentially be recorded and used against a student later.

. . . an FAU spokesperson says Federal Law requires all universities to offer training to students about sexual assault and prevention.

"Nationally, approximately 20 percent of women report being assaulted while in college. To help reduce this percentage, federal law now requires all universities offer training to students about sexual assault and prevention, and the U.S. Department of Education recommends mandatory training for all incoming students. To comply with this federal mandate, universities throughout Florida and the nation are rolling out similar training modules," FAU spokesperson Joshua Glanzer said in a statement released to WPTV.

Glanzer says only one percent of the 8000 students required to take the training have expressed concerns.

From "Here’s Why Colleges Are Suddenly Demanding Students’ Sex Histories" by Tess Barker, MTV News 11/19/14

. . . the chief instructional designer [of the sex survey], Jeremy Beckman, tells MTV News that it’s currently being used at hundreds of U.S. schools.

MTV News: How many schools are using the program? Which are some of the most well-known ones?

Jeremy Beckman: Over 200 schools are using the program, and that number is growing, especially now because we’ve rolled out a program that is for graduate students. … I can’t divulge [which schools], it does include a variety from small schools to large schools, private and state schools. Geographically, it’s very diverse — all over the United States.

MTV: What is the motivation behind the program?

. . . Providing training to your students is going to be required [by the U.S. Department of Education]. . . . To be honest with you, asking these questions isn’t our idea. The [federal] Campus SaVE Act is also going to strongly suggest universities take a campus climate [sex] survey…so the types of questions we’re asking are right in line with what schools are going to ask anyway.

Detectives from the sex crimes unit of the Portland Police Bureau brought Bean, 66, to the Multnomah County Detention Center on Wednesday.

He is expected to be arraigned later in Lane County Circuit Court in connection with a 2013 incident involving a 15-year-old boy. Charges are expected to include two counts of third-degree sodomy, which is a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor.

He also has raised money for President Barack Obama and other Democrats, including Bill Clinton and Al Gore. He is an at-large member of the Democratic National Committee.

From "Lane County grand jury indicts prominent gay rights activist Terrence Bean in 2013 case involving a 15-year-old boy" by Maxine Bernstein, The Oregonian 11/19/14

Bean, 66, a prominent gay rights activist and major Democratic Party fundraiser, was arrested at his home in Southwest Portland and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center at 10:12 a.m.

Bean has been one of the state's biggest Democratic donors and an influential figure in gay rights circles in the state. He helped found two major national political groups, the Human Rights Campaign and the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, and has been a major contributor for several Democratic presidential candidates, including Barack Obama. He's also a close friend of former Gov. Barbara Roberts.

Bean's Flickr account shows him talking with Obama at several events, posing with first lady Michelle Obama and numerous other political figures, including former President Bill Clinton.  A blog post from his sister, Sue Surdam Bean, detailed her brother's work on a July 24, 2012 Obama fundraiser in Portland.  She included three photos of Terry Bean's ride on Air Force One with Obama to a subsequent event in Seattle.

From "Terry Bean Arrested on Charges of Sex Abuse of a Minor" by Nigel Jaquiss, Willamette Week Newspaper (Portland, OR) 11/19/14

The arrest comes after a six-month investigation that began with allegations Bean secretly made video recordings of men having sex in his bedroom. As WW reported in June, Bean accused a former lover, Kiah Lawson [age 25], of attempting to extort him over the discovery of a hidden camera. In the spring, Bean sought to keep the allegations secret and tried to reach a $40,000 settlement with Lawson.

After WW began asking questions, Bean went to the police asking them to investigate his allegations. Bean also handed over to police what he said was evidence of additional illegal activity by Lawson and others.

Lawson told WW that early this year he had discovered a hidden camera in a smoke detector above Bean's bed. Lawson claimed he was in more than one video that was made without his knowledge, and that video recording also captured at least a half dozen men “in a state of nudity engaged in intimate acts with [Bean].”

Bean made millions as a real estate developer and used his wealth to promote political causes, primarily gay rights.

Kiah Loy Lawson, 25, surrendered to Portland police early Thursday.

Like Bean, Lawson faces charges in Lane County Circuit Court in connection with an incident involving a 15-year-old boy. Pending are two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one court of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor.

A Thursday release by the bureau offered no other details except that the investigation was continuing.

Fla. Judgement-free Health Club Boots Pro-life Man

When Michael Amoroso, 70, wore attire from his collection of pro-life T-shirts into Planet Fitness in Orange City, Florida — Home of the Judgement Free Zone® — he was told to leave because his shirt reading “pray to end abortion” was offensive.

. . . for Amoroso, it's about freedom of speech. He said he has nothing against women who chose abortion, but one day would like to see an end to abortions. He added that he's upset the shirts offended someone, but said at least it's starting a conversation about the topic.

"This doesn't deter you even though people are offended from wearing these?" asked [reporter Shannon] Butler.

"No, I might wear them more," said Amoroso.

Planet Fitness is disclaiming any responsibility — saying its gyms are independently owned and operated.

Bryan Kemper, a pro-life activist with Stand True who is known for his extensive collection of pro-life t-shirts, talked with Amoroso.

“. . . Planet Fitness wants people to think they are a 'judgement free zone' while casting judgement on Michael for a pro-life t-shirt,” Kemper continued. “Michael’s shirt read, 'abortion kills a person' and he thought that if he wore a less abrasive shirt that maybe they would not cast judgement on him. He was wrong. Michael came back the next day wearing a shirt that read, 'pray to end abortion' and he was approached again and asked to leave.”

“. . . Michael is not yelling at people or trying to start debates in the gym, he simply works out and practices free speech with a t-shirt,” Kemper added.

All Abortion Outlawed by Georgia City Council

Abortion advocates say that Roe v. Wade is being challenged by the city council of Rossville, Georgia because it voted unanimously on a first reading in favor of Ordinance #481 to ban all abortion except to save the life of the mother.  Rossville currently has no abortion clinics, but Mayor Teddy Harris said that the council is taking a proactive stance to keep the city peaceful.

-- From "Rossville bans abortion clinics, pill mills" by Hannah Smith, Chattanooga Times Free Press 11/11/14

In a work meeting before they would sign the ordinances, council members asked Rossville Mayor Teddy Harris what had prompted these two ordinances to come up. He said a town resident had come to him asking if the methadone clinic in the city was legal. That clinic is, but Harris said the question got him thinking about other businesses they might wish to keep outside of Rossville.

There is no abortion clinic in Rossville, and the ordinance does allow for abortions to occur within the city if they occur at a hospital by a licensed physician, are deemed by that doctor to be necessary to save the woman's life, and the doctor can certify that the baby would not survive out of the womb.

The same logic was used for why they want to keep pill mills out of the city. Pill mills are clinics that claim to be pain centers many times, but in reality illegally dispense controlled pain medications to those who may be addicted or do not have a prescription.

From "Rossville lawmakers rethink abortion ordinance" by Mike O’Neal, The Catoosa County News 11/16/14

As originally written, Rossville’s ordinance is more restrictive than state or federal law.

Rossville’s ordinance goes beyond state law by stating, in section 2(d):

“It shall not be unlawful for a licensed physician to prescribe that abortion services take place within the limits of the city of Rossville, provided that the physician finds the abortion services are necessary in order to save the life of the mother, the abortion services are per-formed in a hospital and the physician can certify that the unborn child would not be able to live outside of the womb.”

After questions about the legality of the council’s action were raised, mayor Teddy Harris said the ordinance is being reviewed and will be rewritten as necessary to comply with all state and federal statutes.

Pope Refutes Homosexualists: Kids Need Mom & Dad

The liberal media has virtually blacked out Pope Francis at this week's “Complementarity of Man and Woman” conference because of his opening statement supporting natural marriage.
"The [natural] family is the foundation of co-existence and a remedy against social fragmentation. Children have a right to grow up in a family with a father and a mother capable of creating a suitable environment for the child’s development and emotional maturity. . . . [Therefore, we place] emphasis on the benefits that marriage can provide to children, the spouses themselves, and to society."
-- Pope Francis 11/17/14

-- From "Pope Reinforces Traditional Family Values" by Nicole Winfield, Associated Press 11/17/14

The three-day conference opened just weeks after Francis presided over a divisive meeting of the world's bishops who split on issues such as gay unions and divorced and remarried Catholics.

During the two-week meeting, progressive bishops sought a much broader, welcoming tone of acceptance and welcome to gays and remarried Catholics, whereas conservatives like [Cardinal Gerhard] Mueller sought to reinforce church teaching on the indissolubility of marriage between man and woman.

Conference organizers and Vatican officials have stressed that the three-day conference was in no way a response to the [above referenced two-week] synod. But the timing couldn't have been better to reinforce the conservative backlash against proposals for the Catholic Church to be more welcoming to gays.

From "Vatican opens conference on traditional marriage" by Michelle Boorstein, Washington Post 11/17/14

The three-day “Complementarity of Man and Woman” conference includes global faith leaders including prominent U.S. evangelical pastors Rick Warren and Russell Moore, former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom Jonathan Sacks and Anglican, Muslim, Pentecostal and Hindu leaders. For the first time, a top Mormon leader – Henry Eyring – is in official attendance at a Vatican conference.

Also attending are Dr. Eugene Rivers, a prominent Pentecostal minister from Boston and his wife, Dr. Jacqueline C. Rivers, who leads a research center on the black church.

In the next few days participants will hear various concepts of male-female “complementarianism” from leaders coming from places including Scotland, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, Nigeria, France and the United States. To some that term that translates into explicit roles for men and women—in society, in the family, in religious institutional life. Francis in his opening remarks used – as has become typical – less specific language.

From "Francis urges de-politicization of family, confirms US visit" by Joshua J. McElwee, National Catholic Reporter 11/17/14

While speakers at the event have shied away from directly addressing or criticizing same-sex unions, most left little doubt about their view of such relationships.

German Cardinal Gerhard Muller, prefect of the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, spoke after the pontiff and focused his remarks on the male and female imagery found in the creation stories of Genesis.

Tying the imagery of the Adam and Eve in the Genesis story to mankind's relationship with God, Muller stated: "When we forget sexual difference, then it becomes difficult to understand the marriage bond between God and his people."

". . . our compassion for those who choose to live differently should not prohibit us from being advocates," said [Rabbi Jonathan] Sacks, referring to traditional marriage as "the best means for which we have discovered for nurturing future generations."

From "Full text: Pope Francis’s opening address to Humanum conference" posted at Catholic Herald 11/17/14

Dear sisters and brothers,

I warmly greet you. I thank Cardinal Muller for his words with which he introduced our meeting. . . .

It is fitting that you have gathered here in this international colloquium to explore the complementarity of man and woman. This complementarity is a root of marriage and family. . . . Complementarity will take many forms as each man and woman brings his or her distinctive contributions to their marriage and to the formation of their children . . .

We know that today marriage and the family are in crisis. We now live in a culture of the temporary, in which more and more people are simply giving up on [natural] marriage as a public commitment. . . .

[I urge you,] Do not fall into the trap of being swayed by political notion. [Natural] Family is an anthropological fact – a socially and culturally related fact. We cannot qualify it based on ideological notions or concepts important only at one time in history. We can’t think of conservative or progressive notions. Family is a family. It can’t be qualified by ideological notions. Family is per se. It is a strength per se.

I pray that your colloquium will be an inspiration to all who seek to support and strengthen the union of man and woman in marriage as a unique, natural, fundamental and beautiful good for persons, communities, and whole societies.
