We live in a time of plague such as has never been visited on our nation. We can pretend it does not exist, or exists for others, and carry on as if we do not know. But we do. We know that AIDS is spread by several different methods. We also know that a cure is not in sight and may never be. What most people do not know is that the gay agenda is running rampant in the hierarchy of Ventura County government and organizations. It has even spread into the churches. We have the potential to slow down the AIDS epidemic by speaking out against a recent request by the Affirmative Action Commission that our county Board of Supervisors consider same-sex marriages as legal, something that will only cost taxpayers more of their hard-earned money.

Rock music has frequently served as a vehicle for social issues, so Extra Fancy's mission to rock its way out of the closet and into the popular culture spotlight isn't surprising. Yet the rock arena has traditionally been a boys' club that excludes gays. Extra Fancy's strategy is to tackle straight-up rock 'n' roll with an aggressively gay agenda--as the Los Angeles quartet did to the best of its ability at Spaceland on Friday night.

WASHINGTON -- A children's book about two male penguins that hatch and parent a chick was pulled from library shelves in Loudoun County, Va., elementary schools this month after a parent complained that it promoted a gay agenda. The decision by Supt. Edgar B. Hatrick III led many parents and gay rights advocates to rush to the penguins' defense. Many say the school system should not have allowed one complaint to limit children's literary choices.

God was in the eye of the beholder Thursday morning at the San Francisco Civic Center Plaza, where hundreds of spectators gathered to watch the California Supreme Court on a massive outdoor TV screen and wrangle over the sanctity of marriage. The occasion: Attorneys from both sides of the gay-marriage debate were arguing the merits -- or demerits -- of Proposition 8, the November ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage in California.

A study released this week suggests that, contrary to what years of academic research has said, children of gay parents actually fare worse than others. According to the study's author, Mark Regnerus, a professor at University of Texas at Austin, the research "clearly reveals that children appear most apt to succeed well as adults - on multiple counts and across a variety of domains - when they spend their entire childhood with their married mother and father. " Regnerus says that his study shows stark differences between such children and those with gay parents: the latter are more likely to be unemployed, consider suicide, use drugs, have an STD and fall victim to sexual abuse.

The Writers Guild of America might think of “All in the Family” as the second-greatest sitcom of all time , after “Seinfeld,” but were he alive today, Richard Nixon would almost certainly disagree. As “Our Nixon,” a new documentary airing Thursday night on CNN makes clear, the late president was no fan of the Norman Lear sitcom and its gay-friendly agenda. The film, which made the festival rounds earlier this year, is pieced together from over 500 reels of silent, Super 8 footage shot by three of Richard Nixon's closest aides -- H.R. Haldeman, John D. Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin -- and seized by the FBI following the Watergate scandal.

Instead of celebrating National Coming Out Day for just one day as in years past, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Alliance at Cal State Northridge is hosting a week of events to educate students about homosexuality. The organization began the event Monday with a rally outside the university student union. Rain delayed the start of the program, organizers said, but several speakers and a gay stand-up comedian braved the weather to address a small audience.

Questioned by an anti-gay rights publication, Texas Gov. George W. Bush said Tuesday that he opposes gay marriages and that a court erred in striking down a ban on gays in the Boy Scouts. Bush opposed adoptions by gay couples as well. Publishers of the newsletter said Bush's comments were "a good start" but they had more questions about the Republican presidential front-runner's position on gay rights.
