GAY RIGHTS & POLITICS: Arkansas senate passes measure that would prohibit anti-discrimination protections for LGBT.

Jesus fucking Christ, my home state of Arkansas is on a derpy roll lately.  I guess they weren’t content watching Alabama claim the title as most bigoted state and wanted to step up their game.  The Arkansas state senate just passed a measure that would prevent cities and towns from adopting measures that prohibit discrimination [Read More...]

GAY RIGHTS: How Alabama stands this morning.

According to the Washington Post, here’s where we stand this morning: While the map may look demoralizing at first look, remember that those nine counties contain just under half of Alabama’s population: About 40 percent of the state’s residents live in counties that went forward with the same-sex unions, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Couples [Read More...]

FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: What justice in Alabama will look like to me.

“Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.”  ~ Judge Leon M.

GAY RIGHTS: Alabama Governor issues one of the stupidest and most dishonest statements I’ve heard in a while.

I just read that Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley released this statement: “I am disappointed that a single Federal court judge disregarded the vote of the Alabama people to define marriage as between a man and woman… This issue has created confusion with conflicting direction for Probate Judges in Alabama.

GAY RIGHTS: Alabama marriage thread, updating on which counties are issuing licenses.

Sorry, no morning happiness post because I want to get right into this.  Last night Roy Moore ordered probate judges in Alabama to defy the federal courts and the Supreme Court and to not issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples today.  This puts probate judges in the position of deciding who they obey.  If you [Read More...]

BREAKING: Roy Moore orders probate judges in Alabama not to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Same-sex marriage is set to begin tomorrow in Alabama.  After flirting with sedition last week, here, in the eleventh hour, Roy Moore is pulling some extremely underhanded bullshit: Late Sunday night, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore issued an order in which he instructs state probate judges to neither issue nor recognize a marriage license for [Read More...]

GAY RIGHTS: Slovakia’s referendum against LGBT people fails.

The other day I wrote a bit about Pope Happy popping over to Slovakia to support an anti-gay referendum.  Considering the majority of Slovakia’s population is Catholic and with Pope Progressive endorsing discrimination, I figured the referendum would pass. I’m happy to report it did not: Only 21.4% of those eligible voted, the national statistics [Read More...]

FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: Pope travels to Slovakia to support anti-gay legislation.

The Pope recently visited Slovakia in order to promote their new set of anti-gay laws which would cause the government to not even recognize gay couples, and prohibit gay people from adopting children: Pope Francis gave his blessing on Wednesday to a referendum that would ban marriage and adoption rights for same-sex couples in Slovakia, [Read More...]

GAMING & GAY RIGHTS: League of Legends tournament that limited number of trans players reverses decision.

As many of you know I’m a huge proponent of getting women into gaming.  The day a woman breaks into the professional League of Legends scene I will have acquired one of my new favorite teams (unless she plays for Counter Logic Gaming, in which case they’ll just continue to be my favorite team). That’s [Read More...]

GAY RIGHTS & LAW: Roy Moore tells Alabama judges they can ignore federal judge’s ruling.

The roads here are too treacherous for driving, so no voice lessons for me this weeks.  This leaves more time for blogging! After flirting with defying his superiors, Roy Moore has just told all of Alabama’s lower judges they can ignore the federal ruling striking down the state’s gay marriage ban: Alabama’s chief justice is [Read More...]
