Family Research Council — The destruction continues…

Saturday, August 18, 2012
FRC-building-300x205
There is absolutely no doubt that FRC, along with more than a dozen other “Christian” based organizations lie about LGBT people. And this is the root of the escalating tension: the propagation of lies. This does damage. This oppresses fellow humans. Those who continue to do this all use the [...]

Is it Christian to be Anti-Gay?

Thursday, August 16, 2012
FRC President Tony Perkins
Between Chick-fil-A and Wednesday’s shooting at the Family Research Council’s (FRC) offices, there’s been a lot of discussion about something called a “hate group.” Groups such as the FRC, the National Organization for Marriage, Focus on the Family, Public Advocate, American Family Association and many others frequently refer to themselves [...]

If you’re gay – A vote for Romney/Ryan is a vote against yourself

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

I do not understand the concept of being a gay Republican. I don’t know how one goes from saying: I’m gay and then adding: And I’m a Republican. I don’t know how one does this… I’ve asked how it’s done and the answers I usually get are vague [...]

Nature does not care about your homophobia

Monday, August 13, 2012

One of the most frequent tenants regurgitated by those against gay equality is that homosexuality is “against nature and thousands of years of tradition.” I, and many others, have addressed the nearly infinite errors in this line of reasoning. For one, it begs the question that nature is separate from [...]

Is it ever okay to call someone a ‘Pansy?’

Sunday, August 12, 2012

“What are you? A bunch of pansies?” I heard his words, echoing across the grass, and felt like I’d been punched in the gut. All those taunts through the years stay with you, even if you’ve risen above them. I immediately walked over, called my son off the field, and [...]

My being gay is not my opinion – it’s my life

Sunday, August 12, 2012

I’ve been asked numerous times why I write so much about gay issues. Why can’t I just let things go? Why can’t I just let others have their opinions? Why must I protest and tell people not to shop at certain stores? Why do I think my opinion is right? [...]

Illinois Family Institute issues ridiculous back-to-school warnings for parents

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Before you go back to school, the Illinois Family Institute wants to remind Christian parents everywhere how they can go after those damn teachers who challenge students’ thinking. No joke. Laurie Higgins‘ piece is entitled “Challenge teachers, not books” -- because, as we all know, teachers who discuss banned books [...]

The illusion of the ‘Gay Lifestyle’ — Setting it straight

Sunday, August 5, 2012
gay-lifestyle-300x205
It cannot be beyond comprehension that gay people also have jobs and careers, play and watch sports, socialize, walk our dogs, take exams, celebrate holidays, save for a house, pay the bills, eat, sleep and drink. That gay people live everyday lives too. What is there to misunderstand? Where is [...]

LGBT Rights: What have we learned from history?

Sunday, August 5, 2012
The-Lavender-Scare
Historically, discussions about the decline of morality have almost always been subsumed into fears about national security, and the rise of McCarthyism was no different. Senator Joseph McCarthy charged that both communists and homosexuals had infiltrated the federal government and this, of course, was going to lead to the total [...]

Religious bigotry on display: ‘Fuck you queers,’ say Chick-fil-A patrons

Saturday, August 4, 2012
april-christian
In an act of ultimate intellectual cowardice, conservatives have decided to equate any and all criticism of Dan Cathy and his homophobic views/actions, as an attack on his right to freedom of speech. By childishly inciting the false notion that Cathy is a victim of censorship, numerous right wing politicians [...]
