Image
That cape is fabulous!! Yes, because the struggle for civil rights is just like selling ketchup!  In a way, he's right.  Granting gay people who love each other the same rights as straight people is a better pitch than "I don't want them to marry because, eew!!"  Via JSonline: New York's Cardinal Timothy Dolan says the Roman Catholic Church has been "outmarketed" on the issue of gay marriage and has been "caricatured as being anti-gay." Dolan, the former Milwaukee archbishop, discussed the church's positions opposing same-sex marriage and abortion in an interview with "Meet the Press" moderator David Gregory that will air Sunday on NBC.   Gregory noted that Illinois just became the latest U.S. state to legalize gay marriage and asked, "Regardless of the church teachings, do you think this is evolving in such a way that it's ultimately going to be legal everywhere?"   Or, he asked, will there be &quo

Honestly, I thought he was already out.  Gaydar systems, check! He made it official on the show to support one of the contestants struggle with being gay and coming out to his father.  That was sweet of him! Via US Weekly: Bob Harper  had his own revelatory moment on Tuesday's  The Biggest Loser . On the Nov. 26 episode of the NBC reality weight loss competition show, the 48-year-old personal trainer came out as gay in order to encourage contestant  Bobby Saleem .   Saleem came out as gay on the show, but struggled to break the news of his sexuality to his father.

Image
This is not an article from The Onion. This is real.  As you can expect, it's not going over very well.  The Urban League of Greater Atlanta defends its decision on its Facebook page by citing all the money he has given to the community.   So, to the Urban League, money = equality.  They are turning a blind eye to all the money Dan Cathy's foundation has  given to anti gay organizations  around the world. Via Towle Road: Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is receiving an EQUALITY award from the Urban League of Greater Atlanta at its prestigious Equal Opportunity Day Dinner in November,  Fenuxe reports :  This year’s theme is “Celebrating Champions of Justice and Equality.”   Honorees of the prestigious recognition this year include Congressman John Lewis, who is truly a shining beacon of equality, civil rights, and justice for all and Chick-fil-A CEO Dan T.

Hawaii will be the 15th State to grant marriage equality.  This country is becoming SO GAY!!  Via America Blog : Gay marriages will begin in Hawaii on December 2, 2013.   The Hawaii state Senate has just passed legislation legalizing the marriages of gay couples in that state, and Democratic Governor Abercrombie says he will sign the legislation in the morning.   The legislation goes into effect on December 2, so hopefully the marriages will begin on that date.   Man, I’m getting dizzy.

NJ Parents Sue To Put Their Son Through Harmful "Conversion Therapy"

Image
Make no mistake; These parents want to mentally abuse their child.  Conversion therapy has been completely discredited, even by conversion therapists .  This "therapy" has been proven to be harmful as well. If some idiot parent believes that arsenic is an effective drug for their child, should a doctor be allowed to administer it? Via Towle Road : New Jersey's ban on gay conversion therapy--signed into law by New Jersey's Republican anti-marriage equality governor, Chris Christie just a little over two months ago--is facing a new lawsuit filed by a couple arguing that their constitutional rights are being infringed upon since they cannot pursue treatment for their 15-year-old son.    The AP  reports : The suit filed in federal court in Camden on Friday is at least the second to attack the law. A separate suit that names two licensed therapists among its plaintiffs awaits a judge's ruling, said Demetrios Stratis, an attorney involved in both cases. The un

I have confessed my sin to my wife and family, my local church, and the board of Vision Forum Ministries. I engaged in a lengthy, inappropriate relationship with a woman. While we did not “know” each other in a Biblical sense, it was nevertheless inappropriately romantic and affectionate.”   Phillips is the son of late conservative activist Howard Phillips and a leading advocate of  Christian Reconstructionism  and the patriarchal, anti-birth control  Quiverfull .
