The LGBT community desperately needs to confront anti-gay propaganda

Wednesday, September 18, 2013
The LGBT community has deceived itself into thinking that if we just sidestep the lies and distortions and solely focus on “telling our stories” as ordinary people seeking fairness under the American system, our problems with those who oppose our right to equality will dissipate. It’s high time that the LGBT community realize that this belief is a false bill of goods that serves as a pitiful Band-Aid to a problem that requires more than stories designed to yank at the heart strings; indeed, such efforts make it look as if we are begging for “tolerance.” [ Read more → ]

Christian principles not the motivator for the gutless who mask bigotry as ‘religious freedom’

Sunday, September 8, 2013
Standing up for Christian principles in general is obviously not the motivator for denying marriage equality to gays and lesbians ... taking a stance against LGBT people is. Even with the most outlandishly anti-gay interpretation of the Bible, not one Bible verse implies that it is wrong to provide services for two people standing up to articulate their love and promises toward each other. Not one. In fact, there are many references that support doing so: the commandment to love one’s neighbor as one’s self; the commitment and love declared by David and Jonathan; the golden rule...

Imagine…

Friday, March 22, 2013
“Take just 80 seconds of your time to watch this powerful video, which imagines a world without racism, homophobia or anti-Semitism — a world in which the hate violence that took the lives of Martin Luther King Jr., Anne Frank, Daniel Pearl, Matthew Shepard and others did not happen."

Mike Huckabee spreads confusion about homosexuality and pedophilia

Saturday, July 21, 2012
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. [ Read more → ]

This is why Chick-fil-A sucks…

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Boy Scouts’ policy captive to anti-gay religious groups

Wednesday, July 18, 2012
I’m not sure why anyone is surprised that the Boy Scouts of America reaffirmed the group’s bigoted ban on out gay members and leaders. After all, this is a group that is guided by the Southern Baptist Convention, The Roman Catholic Church, and the Mormon Church. Until the influence of these conservative religious groups wane, a new policy is doubtful, if not wishful thinking. [ Read more → ]

Sunday, July 15, 2012
The vilification of gays is not new -- but what is now new here in America is how it is being medicalized in public discussions about public health and safety. Not only are we hearing vitriol about how gays pervert and subvert culture and national security, we’re beginning to hear how homosexuality is a public health menace. Believe me: This kicks the crazy up a notch... [ Read more → ]

An Open Letter to Maggie Gallagher

Thursday, July 12, 2012
I’ve been really understanding of Maggie Gallagher since meeting her. I may vehemently disagree with her on every point, but I did think the rhetoric could become more civil. Less name calling, more substance. But honestly, her latest just ticks me off to no end. “A society that is serious about marriage would gently stand up to gay people and say ‘not this, not now.’ Changes in law are hard to undo, once they are institutionalized. I did not decide to debate gay marriage, gay-marriage advocates did. I responded to the challenge.” [ Read more → ]

National Organization for Marriage to Kirk Cameron: You’re Hired!

Thursday, July 12, 2012
Hey, remember a few months ago, when the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) got caught in court documents blatantly trying to create resentment between the LGBT community and other minority groups? Remember how nestled in those court documents, among all their underhanded race-baiting tactics, was the revelation that they were also seeking out “non-cognitive elites” to be celebrity spokespeople for their anti-LGBT cause? Well they finally got one... [ Read more → ]

A history lesson for Linda Harvey and the ‘religious Reichwing’

Sunday, July 1, 2012
Hey Linda: You’ve been spouting off at the mouth a lot of utter nonsense about how dangerous it is to allow gays in the military. ... Linda, some of the most powerful, victorious, and abundantly brave – breathtakingly heroic actually – armies in history had in their rank and file – and leadership – gay men. ... And now with your ignorance and hate you demean their memory and you scorn those who want to wear a uniform of honor in order to serve this country and risk their very all to do so. How dare you.

Oreo ‘pride’ — It’s not the cookie they hate…

Thursday, June 28, 2012
This whole boycotting Oreo cookies isn’t really about the cookie – You know that, right? This is all about hate and ignorance and for the most part it’s all tied up with the “God Hates Gays” bow ... Don’t blame Nabisco or my beloved Oreo for your hate-filled ignorance. [ Read more → ]

An open letter to the anti-gay Home Depot employee: ‘This is a family’

Friday, June 8, 2012
Dear Randy ... When you said gays were ruining marriage, I wanted to ask you to clarify. HOW are gays ruining YOUR marriage? Does your wife want to leave you for a woman? Are you going to leave her for a gay man? Are you addicted to gay porn or something? I mean, how exactly, is me being in love with my girlfriend, a bother – at all – to your marriage? [ Read more → ]
