Obama Administration Files Pro Gay Marriage Brief In Prop 8 Case

Image
More welcome support from the Obama administration on gay marriage. Via USA Today: WASHINGTON — The Obama administration came out forcefully Thursday against California's ban on same-sex marriage and, by extension, implicated similar bans in 37 other states. In a brief to the Supreme Court, which will hear two landmark same-sex marriage cases in late March, the Justice Department argued that gay and lesbian couples should have the same right to marry as heterosexuals. "The government seeks to vindicate the defining constitutional ideal of equal treatment under the law," Attorney General Eric Holder said. "Throughout history, we have seen the unjust consequences of decisions and policies rooted in discrimination." The brief marks the first time the administration has weighed in on the constitutionality of any state ban on gay marriage. Although it was aimed at the voter initiative passed in California in 2008, it put the administration squarely aga

Matt Barber Brings Homophobic Evil To A New Level

Image
Matt Barber This brings homophobia to a whole new level!  He and his kind demonize homosexuality.  They tell young gays and lesbians that they are evil and going to hell.  Then, he has the balls to tell them that they feel depressed BECAUSE they are gay.  Wow!  This guy is evil! Via ThinkProgress: The Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber has  penned a letter to gay teens  — which he condescendingly qualifies as “gay” teens — that confirms the clear animus he and his fellow conservatives have for LGBT people. His outright condemnation that homosexuals are sinner going directly to Hell is offensive enough, but worse yet, he suggests that gay teens are not depressed because of the homophobia they experience, but merely because they’re sinners: God’s word also says that when we sin sexually, it’s particularly egregious because our bodies are the temple of Christ. This separation from God – a natural result of sexual sin – can lead to depression and even despair. If you feel such de

Obama Administration Files Supreme Court Brief Supporting Gay Marriage

Image
Via Huffington Post: The Obama administration on Friday urged the Supreme Court to strike down the Defense Of Marriage Act in a brief that calls the law unconstitutional because it violates "the fundamental guarantee of equal protection." Solicitor General Donald Verrilli argues in the brief that Section 3 of the 1996 federal law prohibits the marriage of same-sex couples and should get the court's close scrutiny. "The law denies to tens of thousands of same-sex couples who are legally married under state law an array of important federal benefits that are available to legally married opposite-sex couples. Because this discrimination cannot be justified as substantially furthering any important governmental interest, Section 3 is unconstitutional."

Proud Gay Man Shouts Down Anti Gay Preacher In NYC Subway

Image
Everyone has the right to free speech.  That means the government can not arrest you for voicing unpopular ideas.  This includes the idiot evangelical nut job AND the gay man that shouts him down to the applause of the subway car.    I can’t believe I teared up watching this video.  Apparently New York has been plagued by nutjob evangelical preachers on their subway trains.  They corner people, like little religious hostages, in subway cars, and yell at them about how they’re all going to hell.  Well, one gay New Yorker wasn’t going to take the anti-gay diatribe from the anti-gay bigot evangelical accosting his subway car.  He stood up and shouted the man down, and then something wonderful happened. The entire car of NYC commuters applauded the gay man. “What the hell are you teaching our children?” the evangelical bigot is yelling at the car-full of commuters, in the middle of an anti-gay diatribe. This goes on for almost two minutes – the preacher screaming, and the gay man tal

Anti Gay Pope Benedict Is Resigning

Image
Pope Benedict (left) During his 8 year reign of terror, Pope Benedict has been an outspoken enemy of gays and lesbians around the world.  He really hates gay marriage !  He has said it again , and again ...and again .  He also likes to bless people who have advocated for the execution of gays .  It would be fair to say that people who value the rights of gays and lesbians should have no problem with this man retiring.   Via New York Times: VATICAN CITY — Citing advanced years and infirmity, but showing characteristic tough-mindedness and unpredictability,  Pope Benedict XVI  shocked Roman Catholics on Monday by saying that he would resign on Feb. 28, becoming the first pope to do so in six centuries. The statement, soon translated into seven languages, ricocheted around the globe. A shy, tough-minded theologian who seemed to relish writing books more than greeting stadium crowds, Benedict, 85, was elected by fellow cardinals in 2005 after the death of John Paul II. An of

Pro Footballer Darnell Dockett Turns Drama Queen After Gay Speculation

Image
Darnell Dockett Note to Darnell Dockett:  Speculating if someone is gay is NOT an insult. The way you reacted is.  Via The Advocate: Fox Sports commentator Chris Rix has apologized for implying his college football teammate Darnell Dockett was gay after his statements became the subject of several enraged tweets by Dockett.   On Jay Mohr’s radio show Wednesday, Rix said that when he and Dockett (now a pro with the Arizona Cardinals) were on the Florida State University football team, “there was always jokes about Darnell and what his preference was,”  Deadspin  reports. He went on to say, “There were a few stories of ‘Why is Darnell hanging out at this guy’s house or this guy’s dorm room?’”   In a series of Thursday tweets that have since been deleted from Twitter, Dockett called Rix a liar, threatened him, and said no one on the FSU team liked him, according to Deadspin, which published screen grabs. “I swear I my dead mother @coachrix when I see you that’s your ass!”

President Obama Advocates For Ending The Boy Scouts' Gay Ban

Image
President Obama: Boy Scouts should end gay ban More words from the bully pulpit!  And, yes, the President's words really do affect public opinion!  Thank you, Mr. President! Via NBC News: WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Sunday encouraged the Boy Scouts of America to end its ban on gay members and leaders, days before the group is expected to vote on the controversial and long-standing rule. In an interview with CBS, anchor Scott Pelley asked the president if he believed scouting should be open to gays. "Yes," Obama said simply. Asked to elaborate, Obama – who last year said he supports the right of same-sex couples to marry – said gays and lesbians should be able to participate in "every institution" that others can. "My attitude is ... that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does, in every institution and walk of life," he said.
