The real, nasty, anti-gay Romney: as governor he rejected new birth certificates for gay parents

By: Thursday October 25, 2012 1:40 pm

With days to go before the election, Mitt Romney is trying to pivot to the moderate middle on LGBT issues and sadly, the Log Cabin Republicans have been desperate to provide that cover. But the problem with Mittens is that he has a significant history — and record — of nasty homophobia that he rolled [...]

Team Romney etch-a-sketches on federal marriage amendment comments within minutes after Buzzfeed report

By: Sunday October 21, 2012 12:57 am

A reminder — Mitt Romney’s (continued) support for a federal marriage amendment signals that President Obama’s “cinderella crumbs” —  “policy changes” or recommendations to agencies to broaden its interpretation of a policy or mission to be inclusive of LGBTs – can, and would likely be reversed in a Romney administration. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised [...]

Anti-Gay Christianity Sure Looks Like Anti-Gay Islam

By: Friday October 5, 2012 10:52 am

“Youths are easily influenced by websites and blogs relating to LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] groups. This can also spread among their friends. We are worried that this happens during schooling time.” Who said that, Archbishop Sartain? Tony Perkins? Scott Lively? Brian Brown? Rick Santorum? No, those words were spoken by the Malaysian deputy [...]

Stay classy, Team Mittens: foreign policy adviser John Bolton calls Obama’s Libya response ‘Limp Wristed’

By: Friday September 28, 2012 3:18 pm

Lacking any imagination (and letting its homobigot slip show), Team Mittens goes there… (Think Progress): Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton employed the term, usually used as a slur against or allusion to gay men, to describe the Obama administration’s response to the attacks in Libya earlier this month: The US is viewed [...]

Catholic bishop – Voting for the Democratic Party could endanger your eternal salvation

By: Thursday September 27, 2012 7:36 am

While it is not my aim to offend anyone of the Catholic faith, I simply have to ask what’s up with the Bishops?

By: Wednesday September 19, 2012 9:00 am

The fast-food chain associated with making donations through its charitable arm to anti-gay hate organizations such as Focus On the Family and the American Family Association has apparently buckled — the dollar means more than supporting its bible beating homophobia.
