Religious Freedom Requires Marriage Equality

The Episcopal bishop of Massachusetts has given his priests permission to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies if they wish, though they’re not required to do so. They won’t just be “blessing” a union — they can now officiate at the ceremony.

Next time someone raises the “religious freedom” objection to marriage equality, make sure they know […]

Two Guys on a Date

Some of our opponents believe gays don’t want to marry. No, we simply want to destroy marriage so that nothing stands in the way of our “particular way of having sex.”

Try and make sense of that, if you can. (I tried writing something to make fun of it, but it transcends parody.)

The real […]

My Eyes! They Burn!

Last week I got on public transportation. Someone slipped me some drugs, burned my eyeball, and took my money.

Okay, I had vision correction surgery.  I can’t do Lasik, where they cut and pull back a flap from the cornea, burn away tissue with a laser, and put the flap back down, leading to a […]

This GayTM is Closed

I got a donation request from the Democratic Party.  It gives me a list of issues and asks me to rank my priorities for the party.  Guess what it leaves off that list.

The closest it comes to LGBT issues is “Equal rights for all.”  But that’s so vague it’s meaningless.  The dumbest right-wing, Bachmannite freeper who […]

For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can […]

The Catholic Church and Second-Class Gays

The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington has declared it will stop running the social service programs it operates for D.C. if the city legalizes gay marriage. It’s kind of like blackmail.

The archdiocese works under a contract to the city, and thus would have to offer the same benefits to its employees’ same-sex spouses as it […]

Rampaging, Hateful, Intolerant Gays

Remember 2008? When gays in CA allegedly persecuted Christian supporters of Prop 8 before the November election? And allegedly went on a rampage against Christians afterward?

The 2008 California hate crime statistics have been released.

Hate crimes against gays, lesbians, and bisexuals? Up from 2007 (from 346 to 442 offenses).
Hate crimes against Catholics and Protestants? Down from […]

If Only

I love this sign from CVS Pharmacy.

It could mean so many things. And dammit, every one of them untrue.
