Mayor Ethan Berkowitz’s employees are using public resources to promote all things LGBTQ. The municipality’s departmental Facebook pages are now being politically mobilized to stir up support for radical LGBTQ ideologies. Last week, a municipal employee got the green light to use the Health Department’s Facebook page to solicit responses to the question: “What does Pride mean to you?” Residents are asked to text their answers to (907) 830-7368, and if you send your address,...

Palmer Police Chief Dwayne Shelton has returned to work following a full review by City Manager John Moosey. Shelton was placed on administrative leave last month after personal Facebook comments from 2018 were widely circulated in which he called the Black Lives Matter organization a “hate group.” Moosey’s decision to retain Shelton was posted June 22 on the city’s Facebook page. “It is a decision that I made after a full and careful review,” Moosey...

Last Monday the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that the language in the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 bans discrimination in the workplace on the basis of sexual orientation. The Bostock v. Clayton County decision has caused considerable uproar among social conservatives because the majority opinion was written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, a Trump appointee. Justice Gorsuch was expected to side with conservative views of constitutional and statutory interpretation, a position hoped for by...

Sen. Lisa Murkowski quickly jumped at the chance to show her support for the LGBTQ political agenda by praising the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to redefine sex to include gender identity and expression and sexual orientation when it comes to enforcing violations of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Conservative and religious groups worry that the court’s June 15 opinion will serve as a tool to roll back religious liberties, free speech and the ability of...

In its ongoing attempt to harness outrage over the death of George Floyd to advance progressive social issues, the Anchorage chapter of the Party for Socialism & Liberation is organizing another march through Anchorage. This time the theme is “Queer Wrath.” LGBT activists regularly designate June as “Pride Month” and hold parades, carnivals and social events to promote gender identity politics and the normalizing of LGBT sexuality in schools, libraries, workplaces and the broader culture....

The U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion on June 15 that redefines “sex” to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” when determining sex discrimination in the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The 6-3 decision redefines the federal law, which was written at a time when everyone accepted that there were only two sexes. Many conservatives believe the Supreme Court’s decision is a classic case of judicial activism which could have dire consequences for faith-based businesses and...

Something very disturbing is unfolding the wake of George Floyd’s death. Protest marches demanding justice broke out across the nation – an understandable response when an unarmed man is degraded as he suffers and dies in the street. But this righteous indignation has been harnessed by opportunistic political activists for purposes that have little to do with racial justice for blacks. Hardened abortion activists, radical gay rights groups and anti-capital socialists are trying to co-opt...

The home of Big Bird, Mr. Rogers Neighborhood and other family favorites is turning its attention to promoting LGBTQ life in the Deep South. “Prideland” is the Public Broadcasting Networks latest offering. The six-episode documentary attacks the traditional Christian faith of a Mississippi minister while championing a baker who asserts his “LGBTQ rights” in heart of the Bible belt. It also features a gay pastor and promotes same-sex adoptions. The documentary, which is part of...

Earlier this month the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District published the final draft of its new policies on transgender students. It was going to be presented officially on March 17, but with the COVID-19 panic the meeting was canceled. It remains to be seen when it will be presented and approved by the board. As I will show below, it reaches a new low for the Fairbanks School District, which says a lot since...

Anchorage Assembly Member Christopher Constant is waiting until the election results are in the bag before introducing a ban on counseling for people who wish to overcome unwanted same-sex attraction. Constant, who is openly gay and running unopposed for his current seat on the Assembly, is being strategic about revealing his scheme out of concern it may hurt the reelection of fellow LGBT activists on the Assembly, according to a report last month by NewNowNext,...
