Lindsay Graham: GOP Should Move On If SCOTUS Rules In Favor Of Marriage Equality

Senator Lindsey Graham with his "Bitch, Please!" face.
Suspected closet case and soon to be Presidential Candidate Lindsey Graham seems to be "moderating" his views on Gay Marriage. At least he is distancing himself from the Mike Huckabees of the world.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is due to join the GOP 2016 clown car, said yesterday that if the Supreme Court rules in favor of same-sex marriage, it will be "time for us to move forward as a society." Graham added that he doesn't see any way for a federal ban on same-sex marriage to be passed.

Two Gay Men Cheered On LA Dodgers' Kiss Cam

My, oh my! How times have changed!

Via Deadspin:

Back in 2000, two women were kicked out of Dodger Stadium for kissing. The team and the world have changed since then. Between innings of Saturday’s game, the stadium’s Kiss Cam team found two men, not as a joke, but a couple. (It’s at the 0:28 mark.)

It’s cool that this wasn’t the still-prevalent homophobic gag of forcing two platonic male friends to awkwardly recoil at the thought of kissing another dude. It’s also cool that the reaction from the crowd was a genuine cheer. Reader Steven, who was in the ballpark (but didn’t film this video), says he was “proud of the loud, enthusiastic response from the crowd. Not one person around me groaned or made derogatory remarks, and seemed genuinely pleased with the moment.”
The Dodgers have held LGBT nights in recent years, and while it’s great to publicly announce that everyone’s welcome, there’s nothing quite like being normalized by dorky in-stadium entertainment to make everyone feel included.

Congress Forcing "Religious Liberty" On Washington DC

Just like Gay Marriage, this is another example of Christian Fundamentalists forcing everyone to practice their religion. Here's a novel concept. If you are against birth control, don't use it. 

Via Raw Story

Late Thursday night, the House of Representatives voted in favor of “H.J.Res. 43: Disapproving the action of the District of Columbia Council in approving the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014.” If enacted, the legislation would make using employer-based health insurance for in vitro fertilization or birth control pills a fireable offense in Washington, D.C.
Planned Parenthood has been mobilizing its network against the bill. “Your boss shouldn’t be able to fire you for using birth control,” the organization states.

Airbnb Removes Listing Of Anti-Gay Property Owner

Airbnb does not tolerate discrimination. Just ask the Texas Homeowner who's Bed And Breakfast was removed from Airbnb's listings. The irony is she is within her legal rights to do so in the state of Texas. There is also no Federal law protecting Gays and Lesbians from discrimination in public accommodations.  
Airbnb has removed a Texas bed and breakfast from its listings after its host reportedly kicked out a gay couple.
Jonathan Wang told KTRK-TV that he and his partner, Brent, booked two nights at the home in Galveston for a friend's wedding. The home's owner, identified in media reports simply as Heather, confronted Wang when he returned after the reception.
"Heather asked me where my wife was," he said. The situation became awkward when Heather asked who Brent was.
"She said, 'I thought you were bringing a wife,'" Wang recalled. "I said, 'I didn't say that specifically ... is that going to be OK? She said, 'It's not.'"
