A gay blogger attended NOM's anti-gay student conference and got an earful about that Regnerus study that supposedly, but didn't, show that gay parents are bad for kids. It seems NOM is admitting that we were all correct, the study doesn't...Show More Summary
The article discusses whether this could stop him from getting the archibishop job. Puhleez. These guys don't lose their jobs for pedophilia. They're certainly not going to lose them for driving drunk.

Best part of the story - he's the guy who regularly protests New Orleans' Southern Decadence gay festival as "depraved." Takes one to know one. From the NY Daily News:During his confession, Storms told police he was cutting some grass...Show More Summary
No homophobic GOP vice presidential candidates were harmed in he creation of this artist's rendition (Fetish photo via Shuttertstock) Well this should be fun. And hey, I got nothing about a good fetish party. I do think, however, that...Show More Summary
Per a new Harris/Logo poll, 67% of gays would vote for Obama were the election held today, and 23% would vote for McCain. Keep in mind that 77% of gays voter for John Kerry in 2004, and 70% voted for Barack Obama in 2008. So this would appear low. Show More Summary
One guy walked into a religious right organization with a gun, shot one man in an arm, and now America is no longer safe for bigoted right wingers. The shooting was inexcusable, but give me a break. The latest effort to take political...Show More Summary
Matt Barber of the conservative Liberty Council went off on "homosexual activists" earlier this week, accusing pro-marriage equality folks of gradually leading America onto a road of polygamy and incest, hell-bent on "deconstructing the Judeo-Christian notion of marriage as marriage has always been."

Interesting that Dan went into the evening hoping something good could come of it, while the self-proclaimed messenger of God went into the evening all cynical, and sounding downright mean. NYT: I spoke with [NOM's] Mr. Brown by phone, and he seemed to agree that the setting had made little difference. Show More Summary

Just sayin'. Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) falsely claimed on Thursday that it was nearly impossible for someone to contract AIDS through heterosexual contact. “Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,” he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ.

Thank you. I got beaten up on Twitter by a number of lesbians who called me a woman-hater for not writing about this "hate crime" because the story smelled funny to me. I just didn't believe it. Hard to say why. I read the story, and it just didn't sound right. Show More Summary
A fascinating, and somewhat confusing, article about father's will requiring his son to marry a woman (specifically, the boy's mom) lest the son's child not receive any inheritance from the grandfather. From ABC News:The words "child,"...Show More Summary
