Is it Politics or is it Prejudice?

Friday, September 14, 2012
Obama-Romney

Marriage: What does gender have to do with it?

Sunday, September 9, 2012
exchanging-rings-275x275
When I was younger, I never dreamed of my wedding day. I don’t know why exactly, thoughts of it just didn’t excite me, they didn’t really come into my mind. It wasn’t something I thought I wanted. It’s not something I want right now, but I will in the future. [...]

No political party will ever regulate love

Saturday, September 8, 2012
gop-democrats
No matter who gets elected in November – no matter who makes the laws – no matter what religious zealots say; there is no one on the face of this earth, or any other earth, who will ever be able to regulate with whom a person falls in love. ... [...]

Family Research Council’s attacks on the SPLC are ‘dishonest’

Wednesday, September 5, 2012
FRC President Tony Perkins
Do words have consequences? For years, we at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) have argued that they do. ... when the religious right spreads false and defamatory propaganda like the completely baseless notion that gay men molest children at rates far higher than their heterosexual counterparts, LGBT people end [...]

Banning reparative therapy: A proper restriction on parental rights

rights-responsibilities-300x205

Self-loathing and lemmings: how voting Republican is just ‘nucking futz’

Sunday, September 2, 2012
gay-gop-300x205
I know this: women and gays who vote Republican are nucking futz to vote Republican; there's something not quite right about their thinking… they are just as crazy as a Jew defending Nazis, a nation determined to exercise pure folly, or those funny little rats marching to the sea… [...]

Hate is easy. Love takes courage.

Friday, August 31, 2012
Love-not-hate
It’s become easy to hate homosexuals in America, and in some instances, it’s become a part of the fabric of the organization. Political parties, churches, social organizations make billions of dollars on their "gay hate.” They can wrap it in any sort of bow they want, but hate [...]
