Friday’s gay-marriage mandate from the Supreme Court is merely the latest “landmark” decision on the slippery slope toward obliterating any definition of consensual deviancy. We haven’t defined deviancy down. We’ve shredded it.

Now, it’s social conservatives who have become the focus of fear, violence, and discrimination for maintaining their deeply held religious views that homosexuality is a sin and that “gay marriage” is an act of cultural deconstruction.

Donald Trump fought back on Tuesday by filing a $500 million lawsuit against Univision. The Spanish-language network replied the suit was “both factually false and legally ridiculous.”

What’s been missed in all this hubbub is that large chunks of the national media have completely ignored Univision executive Alberto Ciurana’s post on Instagram comparing Trump to Dylann Roof, the mass murderer in the Charleston church shooting. ABC, CBS, PBS, and NPR have all avoided the topic.

Comcast-owned NBC announced Monday that they will no longer carry the Donald Trump-produced Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, and would be removed from the reality show “Celebrity Apprentice.” Diversity-uberconscious Comcast must have faced great internal and external pressure after Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants and crime.

At the same time, Univision VP of Corporate Communications Monica Talan has informed Ken Oliver-Mendez of MRC Latino that as of this afternoon the network still has neither made any formal statement denouncing -- or taken any disciplinary action against -- their President of Content and Programming, Alberto Ciurana, who graphically compared Trump on the Internet to the mass murderer in Charleston, Dylann Roof.

CNN’s Reliable Sources was in a celebrating mood about the Supreme Court’s gay marriage mandate on Sunday. Host Brian Stelter began with former ABC weatherman Sam Champion, who spoke to the power of liberal bias on television: “TV always eases the path for change” and “leads the way for acceptance.” 

Stelter noted part of that “leading the way for acceptance” was ABC’s celebratory coverage of Champion’s wedding to artist Rubem Robierb on Good Morning America.

When the Left erupted in outrage over the Supreme Court decision on campaign financing in Citizens United, they never thought their resistance to the result could be described as “treason.” But that’s not the way they’re playing on the new gay-pleasing decisions.

At The Daily Beast, contributor and gay activist Jay Michaelson asked “Did The Four Dissenting Justices In Gay Marriage Case Just Suggest Treason? The conservative justices’ incendiary dissents in Obergefell are a shocking betrayal of judicial responsibility.”

Sen. Mike Lee has seen the threat coming, and introduced a bill to prevent liberals from scrapping the tax exemptions on orthodox churches that oppose gay marriages. The liberal media disagree. On Time magazine’s website, New York Times “Beliefs” columnist Mark Oppenheimer wrote a piece headlined: “Now’s the Time To End Tax Exemptions for Religious Institutions: The Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage makes it clearer than ever that the government shouldn't be subsidizing religion and non-profits.”

Last year, The Washington Post gave a gay activist named Steven Petrow a regular column called “Civilities.” This quickly became a farce, since Petrow was a fan of outing...and Dan Savage.

The original conceit was that this gay Mr. Manners was going to explain to the readers how to negotiate the Brave New World of mangled pronouns and how to address gay newlyweds on your Christmas cards and so on. Instead, Petrow often just pounds the table complaining about the slow pace of the “revolution.” On Saturday, he wrote a trash-talking column about “The Supreme Court’s Sore Losers.”

For Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine, humor columnist Gene Weingarten professes he admires Caitlyn Jenner, but is willing to ask “tough but necessary follow-up questions” unlike other journalists. He starts by questioning the “y” in Kaitlyn, which he finds profoundly annoying.

Coming in second to that was his disgust that this icon of the LGBT agenda would still claim to be Republican.

Stephen Colbert celebrated the Supreme Court decision mandating gay marriage in a YouTube video aimed at his natural audience: secular liberal Democrats. (Forget all that hooey about “devoutly Catholic” Colbert. You can’t be that and be a CBS star....or anywhere else in the media elite.)

"June Is a Lovely Month for a Wedding" was the video's title. “Congratulations, gays!” he declared. “You now have the right to marry in all 50 states. So if you’re a homosexual and living in North Dakota, all your problems are solved!”

Marc Maron is a stand-up comedian and radio host in Los Angeles. Hipsters love his podcast, mostly interviews with other comedians, which he titled "WTF." On his website, the merchandise includes a coffee mug that says "Pow! I [soiled] my pants." You can understand why he was shocked President Obama wanted to grant him an interview.

As for Obama's tastes, and his devotion to the decorum of his office, nothing shocks us. He has neither.

The latest in a long line of one-sided stories mocking the title of NPR’s evening newscast – All Things Considered – came in a Thursday night story on gay activism in Poland. “Homophobia” was apparently too ugly to deserve any air time.

NPR reporter Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson was in Poland to promote the “hope and change” on the Left, and only the Left. Activists compared the gay activists to the anti-communist stalwarts of Solidarity:

On Thursday night, Fox News host Megyn Kelly led with a “vicious” stunt pulled on Instagram by an official with the Spanish-language network Univision – a network that plans to host a presidential debate next year. Alberto Ciurana, the network’s president of programming and content posted an image of Donald Trump next to Charleston racist mass murderer Dylann Roof.

Univision has vowed to cancel its airing of the Trump-owned Miss USA pageant over his recent comments on criminal elements among Mexico’s illegal immigrants. Kelly wanted the media as a whole to denounce this stunt, asking how it would be greeted if a Fox News programming executive did something like this with Hillary Clinton:

Wesley Smith at Lifenews.com pointed out that the Associated Press is modifying its Stylebook to show some sensitivity to the “assisted suicide” lobby.

The AP Stylebook account on Twitter issued these instructions: "A new entry [in the Stylebook] covers suicide in news reports –  'committed suicide' should be avoided except in direct quotes from authorities."

Monday’s New York Times hinted at a new golfing controversy for Obama from the Left: Why are you golfing on California courses during this drought? It was buried inside the paper.

On Monday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Charlie Rose just briefly mentioned it. The other networks skipped it.

June 24, 2015, 6:54 AM EDT

In the wake of the Charleston church shooting, Republican candidates canceled events in South Carolina and altered their schedules. President Obama did no such thing, jetting off to four California fundraisers, golfing in Palm Springs, and doing a leftist podcast with former Air America host Marc Maron in a garage.

In Sunday’s Washington Post, White House reporter David Nakamura explored how Obama doesn’t change his schedule (if not noticing he’s rarely punished in the political press for it):

There is a healthy discussion now underway within Catholic circles asking the improbable question: What is the message of Laudato Si, the pope’s new encyclical on the environment? The political left feels not just vindicated but triumphant. Global warming is not just sound science, it is dogma. Conservative skeptics are therefore not just ignorant, they are immorally ignorant.  

There are numerous unnecessary and annoying genuflections to liberal political ideology in the statement. But there are also passages in this encyclical that could be interpreted as endorsements of the social conservative agenda, and you can bet your bottom euro that the national news media will refuse to discuss them.

The least likely congressional candidate to ever interest The Washington Post might be a Democrat thinking they can beat Steny Hoyer, the House minority whip from southern Maryland. This completely quixotic campaign can only be interesting if....the candidate’s a Navy SEAL who thinks he’s a woman.

On the front page of Style is a picture of Christopher “Kristin” Beck, hesitating in the shadows before ringing a doorbell in a suburban neighborhood asking for votes. The headline is “From Navy SEAL to congresswoman?”

The Washington Post is enjoying making Republicans struggle with the new Vatican document on the environment. On Friday’s front page, Post reporter Karen Tumulty highlighted how the new encylical “poses a dilemma for GOP hopefuls” and channeled Rush Limbaugh’s view that Pope Francis is encouraging all Democrats to vote Democrat for a climate change solution.

Are journalists trying to put Limbaugh and other skeptics on their ash heap of history? On Sunday, free-market activists were about to be exiled, since one headline was “For climate-change doubters vs. pope, ‘this was their Waterloo’.”

June 22, 2015, 7:25 AM EDT

Washington Post TV critic Hank Stuever loved the latest HBO documentary on "gun carnage," as the Monday headline has it. Online, the headline was "A deep wallow in gun-related senselessness."

It was "remarkably good" and "notably free of a direct anti-gun harangue," Stuever wrote, but he was still depressed that HBO was only preaching to the liberal choir ("people already horrified by gun violence and gun culture") and the film "won't ever be seen by those who most need to see it."

David Remnick, the former Washington Post correspondent who now runs The New Yorker, is one of the most unctuous Obama boosters still going in the liberal media. The Charleston shooting, for Remnick, was another occasion to attach mass shooter Dylann Roof to people who hurled “epithets” at Obama on Twitter.
