140 years of Black Male Couples. Really moving article. To assume that all, or any of these are actual "couples", or gay, may well be stretching it, but at least in the photos these men are clearly enjoying one another's company. It's a beautiful collection of photos.
Richard! Such colorful commentary! Well, Bachmann WAS overwhelmed by Santorum!
Meanwhile, this is why gay marriage must be stopped at all costs!
Santorum "welcomed" to New Hampshire. Who knows what will happen - we can only hope that his antigay obsession and theocratic attitudes don't inspire too many of his own ilk.
Ian, all of the states have both sides of the equality coin. This will probably play on for at least a generation. The ad plays to stupidity - "we should keep things unequal because they have always been unequal". Oh, that makes sense! Actually, marriage has not "always" meant one man and one woman, and the bible has many variations on marriage, including those of the bible-god's favorites like David, and Abraham. The christians are the biggest liars on this issue, because they just want to promote bigotry.
As a Minnesotan, I am completely embarrassed. Sure, marriage has always been used to refer to the union of man and woman. So what? Meanings of words change all the time. Even if marriage had previously meant "hot dog," it wouldn't in any way constitute an argument against the gay marriage movement.
I love Neil deGrasse Tyson. His shows on NOVA are absolutely awesome. Some of the supposed fans of the show The Next Big Thing not so much. An episode had an interview with a scientist and mentioned that he was gay. People felt so motivated by a 30 second spot about a scientist being gay that they had to find the website and make a point of complaining about the gay guy on the show. I don't understand the amount of effort into promoting hate. If you don't like what the show presents don't watch it.
The Next Big Thing Cosmic Perspective
Evidently some of the comments were so bad that they had to be censored.
I, for one, am getting really tired of these people.
Make sure you have a barf bag before viewing this. Sometimes I still feel amazed at the inanity and banality of hate.
Nerd, I voted for #1. Apparently I'm in the monority, as usual.
I haven't linked to them, but there have been multiple editorials commenting that (1) Iowa is not representative of the nation and (2) the republican caucuses are not representative of Iowa and (3) few primary winners in Iowa go on to win the nomination, let alone the presidency. It's more an issue of weaning out some of the least effective candidates. Even so, it's frustrating that a group of candidates has been vying for "who hates gays the most", in order to garner votes.
What a group of, apparently, older, very christian, white, midwestern farmers with time on their hands (I come from a long line of older, very christian, white midwestern farmers with time on their hands, by the way) think of a candidate probably isn't representative of much of anything but that demographic.
That being said, I don't relish the thought of seeing Santorum all over my computer screen for the next (how many?) months.
