Just months after Christian couple in Oregon lost their bakery over their refusal to bake a cake for a gay wedding, a Catholic church is facing a hefty lawsuit for refusing to host an LGBT event on their property.
Holy Rosary Church of Portland, Oregon, is being sued by Ambridge Event Center, who claims their business was damaged by Holy Rosary’s rule against hosting LGBT groups.
Ambridge, who would rent out property owned by Holy Rosary for events, had to refuse service to the PFLAG Portland Black Chapter, an African-American LGBT support group.
They say the move cost them business and damaged their reputation.

“Even businesses and government entities that had previously scheduled events with Ambridge who were not affiliated with the LGBTQ community but had equity-driven internal policies, refused to work with Ambridge after reading or hearing about the discriminatory policy involved in its employment relationship with the church,” the lawsuit claims.
“Ambridge also took issue with the church’s decision to end their contract deal,” The Christian Post explains, “after the company hired an openly gay events coordinator as part of their efforts to ‘restore its image with its clientele and its relationship with the LGBTO community.'”
The lawsuit, filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court in Oregon, alleges that Ambridge was harmed by the church’s rules and their effect on business. They are seeking $2.3 million in damages.
In December, also in Oregon, a judged ruled against Aaron and Melissa Klein, the former owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, who had been sued for $135,000 for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake.
They had appealed for an exemption on the basis of their faith, but the judge saw this as an effort to get “a special license for discrimination.”
“The Kleins seek an exemption based on their sincere religious opposition to same-sex marriage; but those with sincere religious objections to marriage between people of different races, ethnicities, or faiths could just as readily demand the same exemption,” argued the appellate court.
Just south of the Oregon border sits California, a state which will soon decide whether or not to ban faith-based counseling with the purpose of overcoming same-sex attraction.
We certainly live in chilling times.
The Systemic Antisemitism Of the Woke Culture and Modern Leftism
They claim to be fighting against hatred, but truth is there is systemic antisemitism of woke and cancel culture which media doesn’t report.
The far left has been injecting Antisemitism into the American political discourse since the early 1970s when leftist African American leaders such as Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, Louis Farrakhan, and the beloved bigot, Al Sharpton, all went public with their Antisemitism. One would think that in today’s times of wokeism and cancel culture, the Jew-haters of the left would be exposed, shamed, and weeded out of the leftist movements. However, the opposite is happening. antisemitism of woke culture According to Melissa Langsam Braunstein of the National Examiner, fighting Antisemitism can get you canceled. Woke theology teaches that Jews are privileged oppressors. So, when Jews are literally assaulted on the streets by the Left’s political allies, the incidents become Rorschach tests. Many view Jews as victims, but the woke prefer to intimate that Jews must be the aggressors. As a general rule, leftists don’t blame victims unless they’re Jewish. One thing you may have noticed with the rise of Anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. concurrent with the recent Israel-Hamas war is that Antisemitism is that in most cases liberals didn’t criticize anti-Semitic attacks without mentioning Islamophobia despite the fact that there was no actual link between the two. But that’s not totally new. In 2019 when some Democrats wanted to rebuke Rep. Omar for her Antisemitism, the Congressional Black Caucus blocked the resolution because it didn’t mention Islamophobia. Instead, they passed a generic resolution that basically said that being mean to others is bad. Really? I learned that lesson when I was a child watching programs such as Romper Room, Howdy Doody, and Captain Kangaroo. As for the Jew-hating Rep Omar, she not only voted for the measure but celebrated it as a step toward fighting Islamophobia. At the end of June 2021, “April Powers, previously Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer…
How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal
here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.
Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
