By: Saturday May 11, 2013 7:52 pm

In a glass houses moment, National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown chucked stones at the gays last week after the Minnesota House passed the bipartisan marriage equality bill.  Mr. Brown wrote: The recent actions in Minnesota should serve as a wakeup call to other states that have not yet passed Marriage Protection Amendments: if you [...]

MN Homophobe Parades Lack of Basic Science Ed with Laughable Testimony Against Marriage Equality

By: Wednesday March 13, 2013 7:21 am

As one of my Facebook commenters said, “OMFg!! My 8 year old comes home with more accurate sh*t from the playground than this!” And to think, this guy, Mike Frey, a “concerned father and husband,” shared his mind-blowing ignorance with the world as he shared his deep thoughts about why gays and lesbians getting married [...]

By: Monday April 9, 2012 2:30 pm

Glad to see this; the President recently came out against North Carolina’s Amendment One.

By: Monday March 26, 2012 3:45 pm

When you have to deny the existence of real families to make your argument, you’ve got no argument.

Shall we vote on alleged adulterer, hypocrite and anti-gay MN lawmaker Amy Koch’s marriage?

By: Tuesday December 20, 2011 3:43 pm

Why not? The state of Minnesota, like North Carolina, faces a marriage discrimination amendment at the polls in 2012. Minnesota Senate Majority Leader (er, former) Amy Koch (R, no surprise) had no trouble supporting legislation that would bar same-sex couples from civil marriage. It looks like she was “pulling a Newt” regarding own domestic legal [...]

By: Thursday November 3, 2011 8:18 pm

Does NOM know the high-powered attorney and GOP bigwig was married to a gay man? It might explain a lot about her rabid homophobia.
