A small family owned business is being subjected to a public shaming because they declined to videotape a lesbian wedding.

Next Door Stories is based in Bexley, Ohio. Last month,  a lesbian couple asked them to film their wedding. The owner replied with a brief note stating she did not do same-sex weddings. Instead of finding another videographer – the lesbians decided to go public.

They contacted the local chamber of commerce to file a complaint – and they also posted a story on Facebook.

The small business was inundated with hate mail. Their social networking sites were deluged with disgusting comments.

The chamber of commerce denounced the company’s actions said they plan to revise their rules to put a stop to discrimination.

Yet another example of the intolerance of those who profess to be tolerant.

When the young people honored a student with Down Syndrome. Crowning Daniel Wood their Homecoming King.

Proving that kindness is cool.

Elizabeth Sullivan knows a thing or two about good living. She ought to  seeing how she just turned a hundred and four years old.

Miss Elizabeth is pretty well known around Fort Worth, Texas. A former school teacher who has had a forty year love affair with a doctor.

Dr. Pepper.

She drinks three cans – a day — every day.

The way she sees it,  if you can live to be a 104, you deserve some Dr. Pepper.

Her birthday cake was in the shape of a Dr. Pepper bottle and she even got a gift basket from the company’s head honcho.

Now you’re probably thinking the same thing I am,  all that soda has to bead for your health.

That’s what the doctors tell us and that’s what they told Miss Elizabeth.

But as she pointed out — all those doctors who told her to stop drinking Dr. Pepper are dead.

She’s not.

Students at Pine Bush High School in Pine Bush, New York, knew right away there was something not quite right about the Pledge of Allegiance. That’s because the pledge was being recited in Arabic.

“One nation under Allah,” the student body president announced over the intercom system on Wednesday.

Reaction in the upstate New York high school was swift, and so was the backlash, The Times Herald-Record reports. Furious students tried to shout down the recitation in their classrooms. Other students sat down in protest.

School Superintendent Joan Carbone told the newspaper that the Arabic pledge “divided the school in half” – noting that many complaints came from Jewish parents and those who had lost family members fighting the war on terror.

The outrage among students was so significant that the school issued an apology.

“We sincerely apologize for having the Pledge of Allegiance recited this morning in the high school in a language other than English,” the apology read. “In our school district the Pledge of Allegiance will only be recited in English as recommended by the Commissioner of Education.”

Well, that’s somewhat reassuring.

However, state regulations do not mandate that the pledge be recited in a specific language. It recommends only specific wording.

108.5 Pledge to the flag.

(a) It is recommended that schools use the following pledge to the flag:

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

(b) In giving the pledge to the flag, the procedure is to render the pledge by standing with the right hand over the heart.

The school said the pledge was recited in Arabic as a way to honor National Foreign Language Week “and in an effort to celebrate the many races, cultures and religions that make up this great country.” It said the pledge had been recited in other languages throughout the week.

That explanation didn’t set well with student Alex Krug.

“I think it should be said in English,” he told television station TWCNews.com. “It is foreign language week but we don’t even offer Arabic in Pine Bush High School.”

Andrew Zink, the student body president, defended what he did and said he would do it all over again – telling TWC News he “knew exactly what would happen” because “it’s the right thing to do.”

Zink wrote on his Twitter account: “To everyone who disagrees with my decisions, I respect your right to do so and hope we can have a productive conversation,”

Oh, there’s been no shortage of conversation around the small town.

“Thanks to the illegal invasion and the concept of ‘celebrate diversity,’ English is becoming a foreign language in America,” one critic wrote on the local newspaper’s website.

A writer who claimed to be an American of Arab Christian ancestry said he, too, was offended by what happened.

“The Pledge of Allegiance isn’t a ‘salute’ to America,” he wrote. “It’s a promise to be loyal to it. Part of that loyalty should be to learn English and integrating into our culture.”

Based on the comments made by the student body president, it appears the Arabic recitation was less about celebrating a foreign language and more about stirring up trouble.

In my most recent book, “God Less America,” I illustrate how the nation’s public schools have been turned into indoctrination centers. Teachers are preaching a liberal ideology. Our schoolhouses have become places where Christianity is marginalized and Islam is given accommodation.

The First Lady of these United States is now urging Americans to stop drinking sweet tea.

Yes – friends – you heard correctly. Mrs. Obama has declared war on the House Wine of the South. It’s all part of her anti-obesity campaign — called Let’s Move.

The website Free Beacon was the first to report on her latest culinary atrocities – urging us to wash down our lettuce and bean sprouts with unsweetened tea.

The First Lady also told Americans to stay away from all-you-can-eat buffets — which I’m sure is great news for all those folks employed by all-you-can-eat buffets.

Mrs. Obama also wants us to consider rustling up some tasty eats from the Department of Agriculture’s Pinterest page. Among her personal favorites are entrees like bean-kale burgers  and curried pumpkin with peas.

I just got a little throw up in my mouth, America.

How about Benjamin Netanyahu re-elected prime minister in a landslide victory in spite of massive opposition from the Mainstream Media and the White House.

There’s no word on whether President Obama called to concede the race.

Over the past few years – congregations and members have been leaving the denomination in droves — in part due to the LGBT issue and liberal theology.

The Presbyterian Church USA now the nation’s largest Protestant denomination to affirm same sex marriage.

Some frightening moments on board a United Airlines flight from DC to Denver.

A man tried to storm the cockpit — yelling jihad. He was overpowered and subdued by a group of passengers – the suspect now in the hospital.

Meanwhile, the TSA is busy manhandling grandmothers.

Starbucks’ national conversation on race has frothed the nation’s lattes.

The coffee chain has ordered its Baristas to wade into discussions about racism while customers wait for their Caramel Macchiatos.

 

Here’s how it’s supposed works – the barista hand you a cup. if that cup has the words “Race Together” on it – then brace yourself for a “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” commentary on the state of racial affairs in America. As if I need to explain to a sixteen year old why I take my coffee black.

Starbucks say they just want to bring us all together. And based on the reaction from Twitter- mission accomplished. Check out some of these tweets:

@Cameron_gray: “Mmm, this Starbucks mug of hot steaming guilt is delicious.”

@MichelleMalkin: “Adding white sugar to my non-Starbucks coffee with my brown hand. Diversity! #racetogether @shutupandsellcoffee.

Starbucks is standing firm. They say they could not be silent bystanders. But silence is golden — especially BEFORE we’ve had our first cup of coffee of the day.

It’s bad enough they charge me four bucks for a cuppa joe. It’s bad enough they can’t even spell my correctly. It’s two d’s.

But now I’m going get a lecture on white privilege because I ordered the blonde roast instead of the dark.

Thanks, but no thanks.

If you work in the IT industry – you might want to pay close attention to what i’m about to say — you could be replaced by a foreign worker.

The Economic Policy Institute says the federal government is admitting more foreign IT workers than there are jobs to fill.

And that could be bad news for American workers.

A Southern California Edison IT professional learned that lesson the hard way.

A loyal employee for more than 20 years — and she was replaced by a foreign worker.

Breitbart News reports — in the ultimate act of humiliation – Southern California Edison made her train the foreigner who took her job.

The H-1B visa program needs to be reformed – so says Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions.

After this commentary is broadcast – you need to pick up the phone and call your representative in Congress.

Find out if they support the American working man — or cheap foreign labor.

And then urge vote accordingly.

The folks in Beantown have national bragging rights. The National Weather Service confirming Boston has had it’s snowiest Winter since 1872.

The official total stands at one hundred eight point six inches. That’s a whole lot of global warming to shovel, folks.

The Bible tells us to fly on the wings of eagles.But Pastor Creflo Dollar prefers a more exotic form of transportation. Reverend dollar runs a megachurch in Atlanta, e’s asking people to fork over money so he can buy a 65 million dollar luxury jet.

The reverend’s ministry says their current plane is no longer safe and apparently this man of the cloth doesn’t fly coach. It reminds me of the age old question — What Would Jesus Do? I suspect He would fly Southwest.

Say what you will  but Reverend Dollar seems to be living up to his name.

The dollar part. Not so much the reverend.

Parents in Orange County, Virginia got quite a surprise at the annual Black History Month Celebration last week.

 
It was supposed to be a school district wide salute to black history. But it turned out to be an anti-police propaganda forum. That’s according to the Facebook page “Stop the Cop Haters.”

A deputy sheriff who attended the production sent detailed notes.

According to the law enforcement officer, students wore black t-shirts that read: “I Can’t Breathe” and #blacklivesmatter.

And get a load of the special readings for the show:

“VOICES: THE EXHAUSTING TASK OF BEING BLACK IN AMERICA.”

“DON’T SHOOT”

“THEY DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT US”

In the spirit of academic diversity, I’ve decided to suggest a few special readings for next year’s presentation:

“THE EXHAUSTING TASK OF BEING POLITICALLY CORRECT IN AMERICA.”

“STOP PLAYING THE RACE CARD”

“IF I HAD PUT MY HANDS UP – I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SHOT”

I reached out to the school district – they tell me it was not their intent to produce an anti-cop event but in reality — that’s exactly what they did — propagating lies to advance an agenda.
