This must be pissing off a passel of religionists:

White House: Trump will enforce LGBTQ workplace protections
BY KYLE BALLUCK - 01/31/17

[The Hill]

The White House said early Tuesday that President Trump will continue to enforce an Obama-era executive order protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community in the workplace.

“President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” said a statement from his press secretary’s office. “President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”

The administration said Trump is proud to have been the first GOP presidential nominee to mention the LGBTQ community in his acceptance speech, “pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.”

Thanks for posting that, Carl. Clearly the Christo-NAZIs are on the rise. Make American straight again.

If this is true, it's very troubling to say the least.

If you recall, the Indian law against gay sex was repealed in 2009 but then reinstated by the Supreme Court in 2013 after pressure from religious groups.

I have to say that I'm VERY encouraged to see a public expression of LGBT support in an environment that hostile.  Damned good sign.

Carl, wow that's quite a march.

Some nice video footage of a gay pride parade in Mumbai, India, where gay sex is illegal.  (From Towleroad.)

BB, looks like we are heading back a generation on some issues.  I don't know if they can reverse the Obergefell but you can bet they'll try.

NYTimes article about gangs in Australia that murdered gay men as sport, and got away with it, back in the 80s and 90s.  Police didn't help.  88 deaths are now being reviewed, with 30 currently unsolved.

When I lived in Indiana, there were rumors of disappearances and murders.  Herb Baumeister was a suburban Indianapolis man who murdered somewhere between 11 and 16 men and boys during that era.  I don't know if his victims were gay, however. Police at the time were more interested in entrapping gay men and giving their names to the newspapers to be published.   The Indiana antigay and highly religious atmosphere was a big factor in me leaving the midwest, I hated life there.  On the other hand, if every progressive leaves, that leads to a more regressive atmosphere for those left behind.

Meet Anti-LGBTQ Extremism’s Insidious New Leader
Blog ››› January 25, 2017 4:56 PM EST ››› RACHEL PERCELAY

[Media Matters]

The extremist Christian legal giant Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) -- known for spearheading the anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ fight in state legislatures, nationally, and abroad -- just named a new president. Here’s what you need to know about ADF’s new leader, Michael Farris -- an experienced fearmongerer and fundamentalist lawyer who will lead the group's assault on LGBTQ rights.

. . . Fearmongering was an integral part of HSLDA’s success in cultivating an active and involved membership base. Under Farris’ leadership, ADF will likely ramp up its campaign to convince supporters that any gains in LGBTQ equality will lead to widespread persecution of Christians or an influx of “bathroom predators.”

Fitting with ADF’s vision of an American legal system rooted in 3rd century Christian theology, Farris has long advocated for a cultural change to shape American politics towards the far religious right. Farris also founded another organization, Generation Joshua, a 7,500 member organization that seeks to train teens to be the “next generation of Christian leaders and citizens.” While ADF already has a vast domestic and international training program to recruit lawyers and law students to provide pro-bono hours for anti-LGBTQ legal work, Farris’ work with K-12 and undergraduate students could lay the groundwork for ADF expanding its training to younger ages.

Kind of a nice story about a cute gay Iraqi couple who overcame adversity and are now married and living in Seattle.  It's a reminder of how relatively good we have it here in the West and the US, compared to so many other places.
