Mike the Huckster Huckabee is out there urging resistance at the state level should the supreme court rule in favor of marriage equality, demonstrating Mencken's definition of puritanism as the haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy. Apparently he hasn't got the memo that this issue might no longer serve his electoral ambitions.
Meanwhile, in India,
600 were arrested for gay sex last year.
"As of October, there were 778 registered cases and 587 arrests under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which punishes same-sex relations with up to life imprisonment."
I'm so glad Abrahamic religions aren't the only hate filled homophobic bigots. Hindus can be assholes too.
True, especially now that the Repuglicans have come up with a way to instantly make John Boehner look as good as JFK - replace him with Louie Gohmert.
It could be even worse His father could have been a republican politician.

My Father Is a Dancer
One day a fourth-grade teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living.
All the typical answers came up - fireman, mechanic, businessman, salesman... and so forth..
However, little Phil Jr. was being uncharacteristically quiet, so when the teacher prodded him about his father, he replied, "My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes to music in front of other men and they put money in his underwear. Sometimes, if the offer is really good, he will go home with some guy and stay with him all night for money."
The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some exercises and took little Phil Jr. aside to ask him, "Is that really true about your father?"
"No," the boy said, "He plays football for the Chicago Bears, but it's too embarrassing to say that in front of the other kids."
A visiting priest is holding confession in St. Paul's Catholic church. A penitent confesses he has had gay sex with a neighbor. The visiting priest, not knowing the lay of land, sticks his head out of the confessional. He asks the 12 year old altar boy what Father Tom gives for sodomy. The boys says, "A Pepsi and a Snickers Bar."
I guess you're right. It's another instance of "Don't try this at home."
Maybe it's time to go to confession.
The Sounds of Sodomy, anyone?
"Okay, it probably doesn’t qualify as the world’s most Sophisticated Theology, but this caused a great deal of snickering in Ireland today. The leaflet apparently is the work of a Christian group campaigning against Ireland’s imminent referendum on same-sex marriage. They had virtually no hope of stopping the inevitable even before this page started hitting the streets and then trending on social media, as there is an extremely comfortable margin of support for it. Now they probably have even less.
Such heartfelt pleas immediately launched an appropriately-named, harmless, but possibly NSFW hashtag on Twitter and is getting roundly mocked everywhere.
It is sad that some people still think their religion mandates homophobia, but heartening that the general reaction to religious bigotry in Ireland today is laughter."
