If Dick Chaney is anything to go by he and every member of his family are nothing more than offensive crap..His daughter may be gay but she is part of one of the most offensive family to ever walk the earth and she will have to show a lot more humanity before I would piss on her if she were on fire. What Dick and Bush have done to our country is unforgivable so let them fester in their own feces. In my opinion that whole bunch who have caused so much death and destruction are right up there with Adolph Hitler and the Nazi regime and they have caused the death of just about as many good people. The men of Scotland wear a skirt or a Kilt. They would be the first to say that the Bush area of the US attitude was just about as screwed up as the Nazi era of Germany.I live in the USA but I am not an American. This is a good country who is brainwashed into letting the idiots that are elected trash what is not the American way. I would love it if they would actually wake up to what they let themselves be dragged unto but they always let others take care of it. I am a transgender person and catch crap for it from those who call themselves Republican. As a US Veteran of both Vietnam and Korea I feel that I have the right to have my say and I will support anyone, weather they wear a skirt or any other form of dress and yes even Black face if you can sort this mess out I am with you.
Maybe Mary Cheney (gag!) should have included other men who wear "dresses"...such as the entire Catholic hierarchy, Muddled Eastern men, and traditional (ceremonial) Greek soldiers. Actually, to be fair, she ought to be just as scathing about women who wear slacks...(I haven't worn a skirt since I went to a memorial service in 2001...because I hate all the other junk that goes with them, like panty-hose.)
>never be an end to the catholic war on humanity.
And [the priests] did not know how to love their God except by crucifying man.

Italy: Rome recognizes civil unions; Catholic Church decries ‘anti-family itinerary’
Rome this week began to register same-sex civil unions. “Today the capital of Italy gives the signal that, in this city, love is the same for everyone,” cheered Marino Sindaco. (Translation courtesy of Google.) No cheers from the Catholic Church, which disparaged the move as an “ideological bluff.” Pink News reports that the editor of the website for the Rome diocese called the civil unions vote “a symbolic stage in an anti-family itinerary that opens up disturbing horizons damaging children.”
France: Anti-gay Catholic group buys neighboring gay bar at auction
An anti-gay Catholic organization, The Missions of Divine Mercy, bought at bankruptcy auction a gay bar in the city of Toulon. The group put out a statement that said in part, “The important of this place for the evangelization of the neighborhood is clear. The bar of Sodom will now become the pub of Mercy.”
Related: new research shows that transgender children as young as 5 years old are nearly indistinguishable on psychological gender-association tests from cisgender children of the same gender identity.
The study, Gender Cognition in Transgender Children, from the University of Washington, says, "Our results support the notion that transgender children are not confused, delayed, showing gender-atypical responding, pretending, or oppositional"; "transgender children do indeed exist and that this identity is a deeply held one."
The tests included an Implicit Association Test, which measures responses that are faster by milliseconds when concepts are unconsciously paired together.
Lead author Kristina Olsen was expecting to find a difference "between the degree to which a transgender girl associated herself with girls — compared to cisgender girls — simply because, for part of that transgender girl’s life, other people called her a boy." "I had this wrong interpretation that it was a switch. But for them, that is who they are and have [always] been."

What an existential dilemma - having to vote for either a non-white person or a non-male. What to do . . . .
Wouldn't it be fun if Carson did get the nomination? Dough-Boy Rove wouldn't work with him, and the rednecks wouldn't vote for him.
(Although there are still a lot of elderly African Americans who still vote Rethuglican because it used to be "The Party of Lincoln." I used to work for one...she also thought OJ Simpson was innocent...we had some yelling matches during that farce of a first trial.)
Mabel was a REGULAR on that TV show, but was always billed as "Guest Star." She worked (coaching) till she was in her 80s...but still remembered every rebuff and insult anyone tossed in her direction....I can't really blame her.
Likely presidential candidate [if by "likely presidential candidate" you mean the likely candidate whose only qualification is he's black and Republican] Ben Carson tells Iowa radio host that Congress should remove federal judges who support marriage equality.
Federal judges had better make sure that their future rulings don’t conflict with the policy preferences of a President Ben Carson. Otherwise, despite a lifetime appointment, they might quickly find themselves out of a job.
During an interview last week with conservative Iowa radio host Steve Deace, Carson, who is considering running for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, discussed the wave of recent rulings by federal courts striking down same-sex marriage bans. He argued that statewide ballot initiative results should be the final word, saying it was “unconstitutional” that judges have ruled in favor of equality despite these votes.
Carson continued that, when federal judges make rulings like this, “our Congress actually has the right to reprimand or remove them.”
