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 and preachers have managed to, once again, stir up fear and resentment towards the LGBT community, giving people a gateway in which to wantonly parade their bigotry and spite.

Gay parenting: After the Regnerus debacle, where are the apologies?

Thursday, August 2, 2012
Mark Regnerus
Now that an internal audit at Social Science Research has confirmed that the Mark Regnerus “gay parenting” study was indeed so badly flawed it never should have survived peer review, it’s safe to say that we can move past examining the specifics of how it went wrong, and start looking at the deeper question of why so many in the media and the right wing readily accepted its conclusions with little critical scrutiny while dismissing the valid concerns raised by others.

Boycotts: A leftist tactic by gays, but a ‘Christian value’ when gays are the target

Wednesday, August 1, 2012
chickfila-sign
It should be apparent where there is a hefty opposition to Chick-fil-A, by the LGBT community and those who value their equality. Unsurprisingly, however, many right wingers, who sympathize with Chick-fil-A’s homophobic views, have labeled this opposition as “bullying,” “leftist intolerance,” “an affront to Christianity,” and “an attack on Chick-fil-A’s free speech.” They say this as if boycotts are a new phenomenon, or as if they are an exclusively “leftist” tactic.

The leftist homosexuals did not bully Donald Perry to death

Sunday, July 29, 2012
Donald Perry
Now, as you can probably guess, there have been some, on the right, who have correlated Chick-fil-A's recent public relations firestorm to Donald Perry’s sudden death. Some have even dubbed him as a victim of “leftist homosexual bullying,” asserting that the stress set upon him by the opposition to Chick-fil-A is what lead to his “untimely” demise. Some have even attempted to draw parallels between Perry’s death and those of gay teens, bullied into suicide -- claims which range from absurd to downright repugnant...

What the Bible says — and doesn’t say — about marriage

Sunday, July 29, 2012
marriage-bible
There’s a lot of talk about the biblical definition of marriage and the family; however, I can’t find where those terms are explained anywhere in the bible. Nonetheless, a careful reading of the Good Book provides some basic guidelines that clearly warrant some discussion...

Can my ‘gay community’ please stop whining about Sally Ride?

Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Sally Ride
We sometimes expect our famous gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to carry our banner to every corner of the world, shouting how we deserve and demand equal rights, when the reality is that they are simply trying to live a gay life in a straight world just as you and I are. I don’t believe we have the right to ask or demand that of anyone.

Should I Come Out on Facebook?

Sunday, July 22, 2012
facebook-rainbow
Coming Out on Facebook depends on why and how you do it, but overall it can be a worthwhile means of coming out. It gives you a sense of control, an ability to present the information in a premeditated way, and a large audience to speak to. So I say, if done appropriately, why not?

Hearing ‘Happy Pride’ is like hearing ‘Happy Birthday’

Sunday, July 22, 2012
pride-4
“I love that everyone says Happy Pride, it’s like they’re saying Happy Birthday to us.” I’d never thought of it in those terms, however, for a gay and lesbian your life really does start the day you “come out,” and what is more festive and celebratory than a big gay parade? So Happy Pride now seems even more appropriate!

Mike Huckabee spreads confusion about homosexuality and pedophilia

Saturday, July 21, 2012
mike-huckabee
The reason why the Boy Scouts made such a ridiculous decision regarding keeping gays out is because people like former Governor and now radio talk show host Mike Huckabee. Listen how he and a caller who was molested as a child makes it seem that gays want to be in the Boy Scouts to "go after" children.

This is why Chick-fil-A sucks…

While contributing to organizations that align with your beliefs is indeed the right of any person or corporation, it is also the right of citizens to research the work of the organizations you contribute to and make their shopping choices accordingly. Let’s take a look at how you are supporting anit-gay bigotry around the globe when you buy some waffle fries (or anything else at Chick-fil-A)...
