Well, I take dickhead as meaning not very smart. If you're pulling down $1M + a year you may not be stupid to be a Republican, but you're still a fuckhead, which I take as meaning an asshole.

@ Daniel - You're right, and I'd extend that to say that any gay guys that even are republicans are total dickheads, unless they have mitigating circumstances like being obscenely rich, in which case being Republican is in their self-interest.

Daniel, that was an excellent video from Ireland. However, when it ended, there were a few other links to other videos. One was entitled "Vote No To The Gay." It is another Irish video which is an absolutely phenomenal and comical satire of those opposed to marriage equality. I laughed out loud watching it. The narrator is a Betty Bowers like Irish woman with a picture of Pope Francis, who explains why marriage equality will lead to nuclear devastation. If you want a good laugh, check it out.

Barney Frank talking to Seth Meyers on the SCOTUS decision

There's only so long myth can sustain itself against reality.

. . . I suspect Scalia will stamp his feet like Rumplestiltskin and go up in a puff of smoke.

Wonderful video, Daniel.  Would any station in the US dare to run such a thing?  Even now??? [sigh]

Hmmmmm - being locked in a closet with Marcus might completely reverse my opinion that conversion therapy doesn't work.

Washington State GOP Blocks Bill to Ban Abusive “Gay Conversion” Th...

Yesterday, Washington state Democrats moved to ban so-called “gay conversion” therapy, focusing on abusive practices like electric shock and ice baths, but were blocked by Republican lawmakers.

The Washington state senate voted 22-27 to refuse to consider the bill. ““I am appalled that the Republican majority killed legislation to protect kids from electric shock, ice baths, and other physical and emotional abuse, simply because they’re gay. We need to end conversion therapy once and for all,” said sponsor Senator Marko Liias(D).

The bill had originally cleared the Senate back in March, but after changes were made in the House version, Republicans now oppose it, and are insisting on their own changes. The GOP reportedly was upset at efforts to ban “talk conversion therapy” – which has no scientific basis, as there is just no proof someone can simply be talked out of a sexual orientation.

The bill is now “likely dead,” according to the local press, as only five days remain in the legislative session. Thanks to the GOP's hangup over one provision in the bill, even the most extreme forms of gay conversion therapy will sadly remain legal in Washington state.

How about Republican conversion therapy?

To Alex with the 18-year-old niece, it's not easy to challenge a religious believer's faith. Since Easter just passed, ask her if she's ever tried the Dan Barker Easter Challenge. This exercise alone may open her eyes to discrepancies in the Gospels. Then show her the Skeptics Annotated Bible website, telling her that the site has collected and tagged bible verses under various categories such as Injustice, Contradictions, Sex, and Homosexuality. Ask her to examine the site, especially the contradictions. Did she know that the Bible contradicted itself in so many places? Ask her how it makes her feel to place all of her faith in the book, knowing what it teaches in such areas as "Family Values." 

In other words, get that girl a notepad, a pen, a bible, and a computer. and ask her to humor you by taking a look at your side of things. Ask her if she can at least see why you do not believe, based on the bible. You don't have to convince her to change her mind, just to understand and accept your position. And if she can understand where you are coming from, perhaps, she'll eventually go to where you are.

(Confetti pack: A Shred of Decency for marriage equality)I was glad to read about a Dublin paper shop's "Shred of Decency" campaign, leading up to next month's referendum on marriage equality in Ireland. They recycle homophobic mailings and leaflets into heart-shaped confetti "made from 100% recycled lies"; proceeds go to Yes Equality.

(They'll even print and make confetti out of homophobic tweets that people flag by replying with #ShredThisTweet.)
