Thousands of Christians flee as ISIS militants burn, loot churches in captured Iraqi city 
Christians in Mosul city in northern Iraq are fleeing en masse with others, as militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, who captured the city last week, are now looting and burning churches and forcing all women to wear the Islamic veil.

Assyrian International News Agency reports that the Sunni group ISIS – also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – has gone on a rampage, looting and burning government buildings, raising its black flag and burning churches throughout Mosul, the capital of the Nineveh Province...

Abortionist who kills babies born alive (like Kermit Gosnell) forced to stop doing abortions  ...Karpen’s horrors were brought to light by three of his clinic workers who walked away from his abortion mill and gave a tell-all interview to pro-life organization Operation Rescue last year. According to these witnesses, Karpen frequently delivered live babies and killed them afterwards, turning abortions into infanticides...

Pelosi Warns SF Bishop Not to March for Traditional Marriage   In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is the attack on marriage."...

...Therein lies the rub for the boy raised by lesbians. You grow up seeing a loving relationship between two women who have defined themselves against what you are, and against the man who gave you life. Father's Day becomes a black hole of time, a day you get through, trying to listen to everyone's stories about their dads without rolling your eyes. The happy ending that concluded my journey through a fatherless life is something I treasure and am grateful for. But I grieve for the many boys raised by lesbians who will never have the fortuitous twists that allowed me to reunite with Dad: the cancer, the empty room in his house, graduate school, my own inexplicable decision to send my brother home and call Dad instead.

If there is any day on which I feel the importance of opposing same-sex parenting, it's Father's Day by far. Lesbian moms should feel deep shame on this day, because they have done something terrible and cruel to their children by forcing them to grow up with a gaping void that their peers never feel. There are children whose fathers die, of course, but most often, these children have a tombstone to visit and their widowed mothers will sit them down and tell them sentimental tales about what their father was like. That's not like having a lesbian mom who can't bear the thought of your dad, the reflection of you as a male, sharing your home and actually being part of your life...
