This is wonderful news. Children are entitled to a relationship with and care from both of the people who brought them into being. Depriving a child of relationships with his or her parents is an injustice to the child.

Kathleen Kennedy has not taken credit for one of her achievements. Being behind the first Star Wars movie to lose money. In place of storytelling, Lucasfilm under her direction has become a platform for political/sexual agendas, and their box office take reflects this.

“...no student of a non-state school should be expelled on the basis of their sexuality,”
What is the word “sexuality “ meant here? Does it refer to students with same-sex attraction who do not act on such attraction? Does it refer to pupils who sometimes engage in same-sex acts but do not identify with the gay lifestyle? Or does it refer to those who do actively live and identify as gay?
Without clear definitions, there cannot be a clear dialogue.

I support marriage equality, which is why I do not support same-sex marriage since it has nothing to do with marriage (one man, one woman, for one lifetime) nor equality (the rights and restrictions of marriage are already shared by all Japanese citizens).
Japan, along with 177 other countries, should continue to support marriage...which supports families...which supports the right of children to be raised in the most diverse household possible, one with the love of a father and a mother.

The American people had a choice of Hillary Clinton between Donald Trump...and were blessed with Trump. Hillary and Barack had been undermining the first right of all people, freedom of religion, by stating that people only had the freedom to worship. In other words, anyone could believe what they want but they should not be allowed to act it out in the public square.
However, freedom of religion is the basis of all the other freedoms. If our inalienable rights were not endowed by our Creator, then a government who can arbitrarily create rights can just as arbitrarily take away those rights,
This is why Barack and Hillary were fundamentally wrong for America and the rest of the world.

Before anyone got upset, should they not have asked what “openly gay” means? Does it mean the film character will have same-sex attraction? Or will it be someone who is homosexual, a person who sometimes acts on same-sex attraction? Or someone who is gay, a person who identifies with, and pursues, the gay lifestyle and community?
If people first defined their terms on both sides, maybe fewer campaigners would be campaigning or feel offended.

Let us face the truth. All can recognize what nature has already dictated: long-term unions of a man and a woman create an intact family, and these two-member families are the basis of society...and as a rule, as a group, and by nature produce the next generation. Therefore, attempting to redefine any pairing to be on par with marriage is futile.
Families, and this politician, are on the right side of history. Let us hope that the people of this great country choose to be as well.

Some people are clearly pushing for same-sex unions to be recognized as the equivalent of marriages. However, nature and reason inform us that marriages are the long-term unions of a complementary pair, a man and a woman. This pairing is the beginning of a family that may later produce children. So...marriage begins a family.
Families are the building blocks of society. Families and marriage are, therefore, logically prior to society. Governments did not create marriage through arbitrary laws but simply created laws to protect that which already existed, marriage. Hence, governments cannot ultimately redefine marriage. They can only damage them by interfering with them. You cannot take axe to the root of civilization, marriage and the family, without their being negative consequences.

A loving and compassionate society never purposely creates fatherless or motherless families. Let us hope that the government and people of Japan remain loving and compassionate…and members of all the other countries that still recognize objective loving marriage.

The Last Jedi was a good film if...
...someone has never seen a Star Wars movie before
...character development is unimportant
...social justice is what someone wants a movie to focus on
...grating humor is a good thing
...unintimidating antagonists is not an issue for the viewer
...fully CGI characters were worth watching
...the director had not known for a year before the movie was released that a main actress, Carrie Fisher, had passed away and so had not killed off a main plot character, Luke
...and so on...
Are there people spewing hate on the Internet? Yes.
Does it then logically follow that TLJ was a good movie? No.
We have to look at the film and its merits/demerits in context. This article seems to miss this point.

To lump same-sex relationships in with opposite-sex relationships is not equality. It is the denial of sexual difference and helps no one in their true needs.
Osaka would do better to show love and compassion by being supportive of every member of society rather than by offering special privileges to a select group.

“It is harmful to teach children that such gender confusion is 'normal', as the American College of Pediatricians states.
Exactly. Schools should be promoting wholeness rather than empowering the gender confused to live a life perpetually separated in mind and body. Harming children by demanding that they ignore the reality they see in front of them is...illogical.
Are there gender confused people? Yes.
Must everyone else then be required to be confused as well? No.

“School officials hope the move will ease the mental anguish of students...”
Gender confused children are already suffering from mental anguish. Enabling their confusion is neither loving nor helpful, nor even professional.

This article did not cover the “Solo Boycott” by all the Star Wars fan who were reacting to the travesty called “The Last Jedi.” TLJ was Star Wars in name only.
Unanswered questions from the previous film went on unanswered or were unsatisfactorily disposed of. The humor was grating. The Luke Skywalker character we got to know through four films was not the Luke Skywalker character in this movie. The other protagonists were not worth caring about, and the antagonists were far from intimidating. The only saving grace of the film was to see Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher working together again.

Men and women are complementary. The lessons learned from both parents are valuable and unique to the strengths of each sex, and children are in desperate need of both.
Children need their heir father and mother, married, throughout their lives. Not two men. Not two women. Not a single man. Not a single woman. Children have a right to a relationship with the two people who brought them into this world.
