Where are the alarm bells concerning Black Friday? Why have none of the self-described “family organizations” said that Thanksgiving is “under attack?” ... The organizations who make their living off of attacking the lives and relationships of LGBT people (who also happen to be among the loudest claiming that there’s a “War on Christmas”) have been utterly silent that Thanksgiving, perhaps the most family-oriented holiday on our American calendar, is becoming a holiday dedicated to fighting other shoppers for the lowest deals.

I did not decide to debate gay marriage, gay-marriage advocates did. I responded to the challenge.” [ Read more → ]
