Back in 2004 a post-ABC poll measured the public opinion toward marriage equality: Support for same-sex marriage has changed more rapidly than almost any social issue in the past decade. In a Post-ABC poll in March 2004, 38 percent said same-sex marriage should be legal, while 59 percent said it should not, the same percentage now in [Read More...]
A church in Harlem has put up a sign that combines the paranoia of fundamentalist Christianity and Republican politics into a singularity of irrational fear: Yes, because the President saying he’s changed his mind on gay marriage totally changes the amount of gay people in the world and what they do in their spare time.

Catholic school withdraws from a St. Patrick’s Day Parade and complains about how put upon they are.
A Catholic school is making a big stink about how oppressed they are because they elected to not participate in South Boston’s Saint Patty’s Day Parade…because gay people who fought for their rights were being allowed to march as well: A Catholic school has announced they will not be in the South Boston Saint Patrick’s Day [Read More...]
Make no mistake: Uganda President Museveni knew this was going to happen. He even pre-empted it as he signed the bill.

Look, it’s not because President Yoweri Museveni is an Evangelical Christian leading a fundamentalist Christian nation (with some sprinkling of Islam thrown in for the anti-gay cherry on top) that he just signed a bill into law that means life imprisonment for gay people and anybody who doesn’t report them. It’s that science shows us [Read More...]
Al Melvin goes on Anderson Cooper to defend anti-gay bill in Arizona. Rehearsed talking points ensue.
I don’t think Al Melvin is qualified to make french fries, but he’s running for governor of Arizona. The man can’t answer (or won’t answer) Cooper’s questions, lies about the impetus for the bill, embarrasses himself by not getting that his bill would apply to religions other than his, and then sits there with a [Read More...]
Father sent this email to the Arizona Chamber of Commerce this morning. Please pass this along to your governor. We are planning a trip West this fall. If your governor signs the “discriminate against gays” bill currently on her desk, we will drive around Arizona, no matter how many miles it may add to the [Read More...]
