Alleged Closet Case GOP Congressman David Dreier Will Retire

Image
Photo credit:  Frederick Maligas Nacino There have been persistent rumors about Congressman Dreier's sexuality for decades.  Perhaps now he can pull a "Ken Mehlman" and try to offer his help without ever acknowledging all the damage he has done by almost always voting against any pro-gay legislation and almost always voting for anti-gay legislation.   Via Joe My God: Rep. David "Closet Case" Dreier (R-CA) will not   seek reelection   to the U.S. House this fall. Veteran Rep. David Dreier, one of California's most influential Republicans in Congress, announced Wednesday that he won't be running for reelection, perhaps the biggest casualty of the state's first-ever citizens-drawn political map, which cast him into a politically inhospitable district. Dreier is the sixth California House member to announce his retirement when his term expires, further shaking up a delegation that has built up clout on Capitol Hill because of its stability ove

Rick Santorum: Separation Of Church And State Makes Me Want To Throw Up

Image
Rick Santorum is the De Facto leader of the American Taliban.  He is a Catholic Extremist and probably believes that the Government should be led by the Pope, for all intents and purposes.   Via Lezgetreal.com: This might explain a lot about Rick Santorum and his beliefs regarding the Constitution. As far as Rick Santorum is concerned, this nation should be a Catholic theocracy. This, of course, means that priests and bishops would be sacrosanct and above reproach even if they molest children. It is also apparent that Santorum is, by and large, ignorant of history. He said on ABC today that: “I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute. The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country. This is the First Amendment. The First Amendment says the free exercise of religion. That means bringing everybody, people of faith and n

3 Lesbians Accused Of Hate Crime Against Gay Man...Huh?

Lydia Sanford A very sad and interesting situation in Boston.  Three woman, who claim to be lesbians have been arraigned for a hate crime...against a gay man.  John Avarosis at AmericaBlog makes a good point. “ Roy Cohn was gay, and the man was a walking hate crime.”   Via EDGE New York: A gay Boston man was allegedly the victim of a hate crime last week when he was attacked by a group of teenage girls at a subway station, Boston’s news station WHDH reported. Felicia Stroud Local authorities say that the man had cuts on his face and a bloody nose and that he told police a group of teenage girls physically and verbally assaulted him at the Forest Hills subway station.

Erika Stroud ...But the case took a strange turn on Saturday, Feb. 25, when Boston police arraigned three black girls who claim that they are lesbians. The Boston Herald reported that a prominent civil rights lawyer claimed t

I Dare You Not To Cry At This Wedding Video!

This is such a wonderful video!  The director is raising funds for a film about anti-gay bullying. I hope anyone who can donates to fund this film!   Via Unicorn Booty: Director/Producer Elliot London’s short film,  The Wedding Dance  has the power to make grown men cry. Or just you. Or Ellen and her army of millions of equality-loving moms – hint hint! Real talk, as a gay man engaged to a total dreamboat I sometimes daydream about our wedding. Between the two of us, we have a pretty stellar constellation of loved ones – my beautiful foster mother and sister and Nick’s incredible parents and siblings. I sometimes wonder how these important people will factor into our special day. Is there an aisle? Does Nick’s dad walk someone down it? Do we share our first dance with our best ladies? Can my sister be my best man? It’s a lovely kind of a anxiety, but sometimes an anxiety nonetheless. So I absolutely appreciate the  Who Gives a $%*#  nature of Jed asking his gay fathers to d

Gay Homeless Youth Thrown Out Like Trash

This is a terrible situation!  There are several organizations that tackle this problem head on.  Do what you can to help these or other programs.  Share others in the comments section. The Al Forney Center Pridelines Miami Bridge The  Hetrick Martin Institute Via Think Progress: here are approximately  1.6 million to 2.8 million homeless young people  in the United States and a disproportionate number — 20 to 40 percent — are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. LGBT youth often run away from home because of family conflict and then “face overt discrimination when seeking alternative housing, which is compounded by institutionalized discrimination in federally funded programs.” Last night,  a local CBS affiliate in Miami , Florida offered an in-depth look into the crisis of LGBT youth homelessness and the children who are put out “like trash” by parents who refuse to accept them: Studies show that 320,000 to 400,000 gay and transgender youth face homelessness each

The  Phoenix New Times  newspaper broke the story  on its website in a piece written by veteran journalist Monica Alonzo. The accusations came complete with text messages said to be between the two men as well as compromising photos purportedly of Babeu that are reminiscent of recent sex scandals that ended the careers of Congressmen Anthony Weiner and Chris Lee. In one photo, Babeu is seen posing in front of a mirror in nothing but his underwear. In another, he has his hand inside the man’s partially unbuttoned

Anti gay radio host and gay bar patron Michael Berry What is an Anti Gay talk radio host and former Houston councilman  Michael Berry  doing in a gay bar?  Did he drink before he backed into a car while leaving the bar?  Why hasn't the Houston D.A. filed charges?  There is an eyewitness/victim who got the license plate.  The SUV belongs to Berry. The bar has reportedly turned over video showing Berry in the bar just before the hit and run.   Once again, this study may very well explain this situation.   Via JoeMyGod: Conservative talk radio host Michael Berry   has been accused   of leaving the scene of a fender bender after departing a drag show he attended at a popular Houston gay bar. Berry is known for ranting against same-sex marriage and related LGBT issues. Local 2 Investigates e-mailed Berry for his response to the hit-and-run allegations and the videotape showing him inside the club during that drag show, and Berry replied, "I don't respond to such th

Girl Scouts Alternative For Homophobic Christians

Image
Saluting Homophobia God forbid these precious Christian snowflakes become involved in a tolerant and inclusive organization.   Via JoeMyGod: Because of the recent furor over the Girl Scouts' inclusive membership policy, an anti-gay alternative called the  American Heritage Girls   is seeing an explosion in membership. The group started with 100 girls in Ohio, and in recent weeks has surpassed 18,000 members in 45 states and six countries. Nine groups with a total of 357 girls meet in the St. Louis area; there were five local groups at this time last year. They are based at private schools and churches in Jefferson, St. Charles and St. Louis counties. Founder Patti Garibay, who had been a longtime Girl Scout leader for her daughters, wanted a choice. "We are faith-based, and they are secular, and that's a change," she said. "We're not for everybody, but we're obviously for a lot of people." Garibay estimates that 90 percent of Heritage membe

Don't you long for the days when kicking a faggot's ass was normal?  Peter LeBarbera and Patrick Wooden sure do! Of course, they claim that they aren't advocating violence.  But, it sure was better when you could! Via Right Wing Watch: On last week’s edition of  Americans For Truth About Homosexuality Radio Hour , a self-described “former homosexual”  called for the arrest of author Dan Savage  for his campaign to end suicide among LGBT youth, and today host Peter LaBarbera and guest Patrick Wooden reminisced about when violence against gay and transgender people was considered “normal.” Wooden, a North Carolina pastor and anti-gay activist with who has claimed that  older gay men have to wear diapers  after a lifetime of shoving a  variety of objects and animals up their anuses , started the program by criticizing NAACP president Ben Jealous for addressing the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s Creating Change conference.
