Huckabee's boyfriend must have dumped him. He's in antigay-overload. Or, is he pandering to evangelicals in hope for a presidential bid? He wouldn't be that cynical and manipulative would he? Such a good christian?
"militant gays put pressure on Indiana and Arkansas"
"gay activists won't stop until there are no more churches"
" Huckabee labeled the support of equality and the LGBT community from companies like Apple, Salesforce, and Angie's List as "bizzarre," and their CEOs as "capitulating" to the left. He called the outrage across the nation "a phony crisis."
Of course, Huckleberry Hound earlier claimed "having to accept gay marriage was like telling Jews to serve “bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli”.
Meanwhile, the almost forgotten and ever vile Ann Coulter had to get into it, "The small town owners of pizzeria have more Christian courage than most Christian leaders and certainly the Republican party. The one thing every Christian should have is courage. Go out and fight. You’re afraid of being sneered at by the New York Times? “Most people would rather risk getting Ebola that being called a homophobe or racist.”
Shit. The season of hypocritical bile is upon us.
Good news for LGBT-Americans - Governor Pence will enslave
Christians to serve us! I think I need a good house cleaning christian slave, and maybe one to mow the lawn. And the car really needs washing.
Well, maybe it's not going to go quite that far.
Such a great perspective - It's OK to discriminate against gays here because they hang us in Iran.
First woman bishop in the Church of England, says (I'm paraphrasing), "I got my equality, against BIblical command and tradition so screw you, LGBT people! In the nicest possible mealy mouthed way".
Ah religion, brings out "the best" in people. Especially the insiders, and among those, especially the newest insiders.
It was silly to pit Hitchens and Fry vs. the Archbishop and Widdecombe. It presented a lost opportunity for some stimulating thinking. In this case, it was raw comedy.
Debate: Atheists vs Christians (Hitchens / Fry vs Archbishop / Widd...
Bertold, I have seen our side of that debate multiple times, and the dynamic duo of Hitchens and Fry are positively devastating. By comparison, Widdecombe is shrill and the bishop vacuous ... and they were roundly and thoroughly DRUBBED.
Oh! Bertold, thank you for that information about Susan G. Komen. What a decent and intelligent thing to do. With people such as Susan, we might just have a humane government, after all.
Susan G. Komen speaks out for equality, signs on to amicus brief to POTUS.
. . . it is almost impossible for me to fathom that in 26 percent of this nation, civil marriage is still unavailable for same-sex couples. There is absolutely no reason why loving same-sex couples should be excluded from the fundamental right to marry the person they love.We are at a historical crossroads in America, when disparate political and ideological communities are committed to ensuring that discrimination on any level will not be tolerated. With this in mind, I have added my name to an amicus brief concerning government recognition of the freedom to marry filed with the U.S. Supreme Court by Project Right Side and former Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman. A total of 303 Republican, libertarian, conservative, and center-right high-profile activists and government officials have signed on to the brief. We want the court to know that we support traditional conservative values, including a belief in the importance of stable families, and that those conservative values are consistent with affording civil marriage rights to same-sex couples.
Weekend entertainment, anyone??
There's a Brit TV show called Intelligence Squared that's a debate format, and this is a particularly heartening episode from a few years back. The topic is "Is the Catholic Church a Force for Good in the World? Arguing the pro side of the proposition is a most undynamic duo consisting of a Nigerian archbishop of the Catholic Church and a shrill and irritating former MP who noisily resigned the Church of England because they began ordaining women and became a Catholic. The pair, as the audience votes attest, would have lost a debate to a used prophylactic, and in this case they were absolutely no match for the "against" side which consists of Christopher Hitchens and Stephen Fry.
A memorable moment - while the Hitch is excoriating the Church for condemning his friend Fry for "who he is," he notes that "Homosexuality isn't just a kind of sex, it's a kind of love."
According to Out mag, before he leaves the AG spot Eric Holder is planning to have the DOJ file an amicus brief with SCOTUS denouncing statewide bans on same sex marriage.
