63 Texas Republicans Put It In Writing: Marriage Equality “Could Lead to the Recognition of” Pedophilia & Incest

Last Monday, Texas Republicans proved once again that they have little grasp of reality when it comes to the consequences of marriage equality.

Whoa! National Catholic Reporter Praises Obama’s LGBT Nondiscrimination Order

President Obama took a huge step earlier this month when he signed an executive order barring anti-LGBT discrimination in workplaces that receive federal contracts. In response, the National Catholic Reporter took a surprising stance:

Obama’s exemption was especially contentious among faith groups because it did not expand religious exemptions (though he did respect a Bush-era executive order allowing religious groups “some leeway” in hiring and firing on religious grounds). That’s why it’s so refreshing that in a staff editorial, NCR praised the executive order loudly and proudly, a far cry from the expected (and observed) Catholic response.
