Anne here… The Southern Poverty Law Center alerts us to a new study out of Australia about children growing up in households led by same-sex parents: In the latest blow to anti-gay forces, a major study conducted at the University of Melbourne in Australia has found that children of same-sex parents do as well or [Read More...]
Macklemore (the guy responsible for that god damned thrift store song that only leaves your head a few minutes before you hear it on the radio again) was already a pretty rad supporter of gay rights. Now he’s even more rad. Right on! What a happy story to read first thing in the morning. [Read more...]
College Republican National Committee: the problem with our LGBT image is that not enough people believe a lie.
The College Republican National Committee has made recommendations to the GOP on how to stop getting pummeled so drastically at the polls by young voters. Not surprisingly, the CRNC identified gay marriage as one of the problem areas for the Republican Party: With the culture shifting away from the party’s policies, here’s what they recommend: [Read More...]
No gay marriage, no gay rights groups, and 14 years in prison for violators. Faith in Nigeria at work.
I knew the good news couldn’t last forever. In Nigeria, where about 50% of the population is Christian and about 47% of the population is Muslim, they’ve passed a law that represents some of the vast amount of common ground between the two faiths. Lawmakers in Nigeria passed a bill Thursday banning same-sex marriage and [Read More...]

Christina here… Here is a method one might employ to determine whether some argument you or someone else is making seems reasonable. This is best applied when thinking about your own perspective or when talking to people who tend to scoff at more logical arguments. It’s what I call The Perspective Test, or the What-if-someone-did-that-to-you? [Read More...]
It’s unfortunate the law allows law enforcement officials to indulge a couple of malicious, anti-gay parents.
I want to comment on the story of Kaitlyn Hunt. She was, up until recently, a senior at a high school in Sebastian, FL. She was dating another girl at the high school, a freshman. The two girls are about 3.5 years apart, with Kaitlyn being 18 and her younger girlfriend having just turned 15. [Read More...]
Father saw this letter to the editor in the local paper: After seeing some of a documentary on TV about why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, well, I had to speak up. They said it was destroyed because the people lacked hospitality. Really? Read Genesis 19:1-13. Two angels came to Lot to take him and [Read More...]
