Oklahoma citizens learn that the will of the majority doesn’t usurp inalienable rights.

Judge Terrence Kern just handed down a pretty tough cheese to swallow for the state of Oklahoma: their ban on marriage equality is unconstitutional.  And Kern didn’t do this with language that could be called coddling.  Speaking of the plaintiffs, Kern said: “The Bishop couple has been in a loving, committed relationships for many years,” [Read More...]

Another Catholic school fires a great teacher because he wants to get married.

Brian Panetta was, until recently, the music teacher at Sandusky Central Catholic School in Ohio.  In his five years there he “vastly expanded the entire music program, with the school’s band expanding from 18 to 50 members.”  The school just fired him because he’s in love with a man and not a woman, which apparently [Read More...]

Arkansas Tech needs to disavow comments by homophobic teacher.

A teacher at Arkansas Tech, Wayne Helmer, recently penned an editorial in Prism, the journal of the American Society for Engineering Education.  In the piece Helmer insists that diversity should not include the LGBT.  The kindest thing I can say about it is that it’s factually errant.  Click here to see the excerpt I got [Read More...]

Uganda’s parliament has just voted (Friday) on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill (also [Read More...]

Judge strikes down Utah’s anti gay marriage law. Mormons become sad pandas.

Booyah! A federal judge struck down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban Friday in a decision that brings a nationwide shift toward allowing gay marriage to a conservative state where the Mormon church has long been against it.

Father on Duck Dynasty’s ex-star Phil Robertson’s “freedom of speech.”

So you may have heard that the star of a reality show based around what a down home yokul he is said some very hateful things about gay people.  As a result, he was fired from the show.  Well this has the South up in a tizzy about how persecuted this poor Christian man is.  [Read More...]

Pastor fights to maintain affiliation to a church whose commands he knows to be immoral.

Pastor Frank Schaefer defied the Methodist church last month when he said he would perform a gay wedding and then followed up on it, despite threats from the church to strip him of his credentials.  Well, the church has followed up as well, but Schaefer has refused to part with them willingly.  Good on him, [Read More...]
