    Love was in the air as NJ Governor Chris Christie won his new object of obsession, President Obama, a teddy bear while the lovebirds strolled along the boardwalk in NJ. With his administration mired in scandal, Obama is trying to play his greatest hits – revisiting all the places where he got a bump in the polls. But the media seems to be missing one of the biggest stories from the day, and only Glenn had it. And while many news outlets picked up on Chris Christie stepping in to win a stuffed teddy bear for President Obama, only Glenn...

    Is Obama gay? When I first heard a few days ago that Obama might be gay, my initial reaction was, that's ridiculous. He's married, has two kids, and he's never set off my gaydar. I had read a few years ago about Larry Sinclair, who claimed he had given Obama oral sex when Obama was a state senator. But at the time I just figured that any famous person is bound to attract a few loonies who will say anything to get publicity. But after I read the article linked two posts ago (and directly below), I started reading more...

    LAKE FOREST, CALIFORNIA, February 9, 2012, ( – Rick Warren, perhaps the nation’s most influential evangelical pastor, has tweeted he would “go to jail” rather than cave in to a government mandate that violates God’s commandments. Pastor Rick Warren, pastor of the 20,000-member Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, tweeted his defiance of the Obama administration’s requirements that religious institutions cover all forms of contraception, including abortifacients like Ella and the IUD, as part of their health care plans. On Tuesday, Warren addressed the issue three times on his Twitter feed. “I’d go to jail rather than cave in...

    Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) is considering endorsing Rudy Giuliani for the GOP presidential nomination and will meet with him Thursday in Washington to hear his views on abortion. Brownback, who ended his White House run last week and is a champion of social conservative issues, said he would consider Giuliani because he had heard that the former New York City mayor had changed his position on partial-birth abortion and has pledged to appoint to the courts strict constructionists who would not overturn anti-abortion laws. If Brownback pledged his support, it would be a big boost for Giuliani. It might help...

    Substitute Teacher Sued for Showing 'Brokeback Mountain' in Class Sunday , May 13, 2007 AP CHICAGO — A girl and her grandparents have sued the Chicago Board of Education, alleging that a substitute teacher showed the R-rated film "Brokeback Mountain" in class. The lawsuit claims that Jessica Turner, 12, suffered psychological distress after viewing the movie in her 8th grade class at Ashburn Community Elementary School last year. The film, which won three Oscars, depicts two cowboys who conceal their homosexual affair. Turner and her grandparents, Kenneth and LaVerne Richardson, are seeking around $500,000 in damages.

    Kaitlyn came to visit in early January of this year and Mom-Mom discovers something intriguing and enchanting about the child. She's 3 years old but already a Pinball Wizard, just like me! Is it heredity, environment, what? Because she'd never before laid her little eyeballs on a pinball machine. And a review of "Brokeback Mountain", yes, I watched it and unlike other reviewers, this heterosexual female noticed something not written about in the many reviews of the movie I've read.

    From Seton Hall University Web Site ^ | 07-17-06 | Edward Pennington
    Hollywood movie "Brokeback Mountain" is scheduled to stage at Seton Hall University, a Catholic institution founded in 1865. The film is currently listed on the university’s web site under “Multicultural Program Film & Lecture Series.” Catholics are being called to peacefully protest because the film: >>> Approves same-sex relations, adultery, nudity, profanity and drug use. It is a blow to Catholic education, America’s Christian roots, the institution of the family and very foundations of morality and society. >>> "Brokeback Mountain" is the antithesis of authentic Catholic education. It scrambles human emotions and encourages students to tolerate sin. The U.S. Conference...

    Athletically speaking, Gay Games VII was a joke. Everybody knows true competition shouldn't include hefty figure skaters, any kind of line dancing or games best played with a beer in your hand. More than winning medals and breaking records, Gay Games participants talked of the importance of participating, having fun, being "out and proud," making strides toward a more accepting America and all that jazz. All around Chicagoland, guys kissed guys in the on-deck circle. Girls kissed girls between billiard matches. They didn't feel afraid or scared or judged. And in those eight days of reprieve -- something special happened...
  • 'Shortbus' sex bonanza a slap to Bush, Cannes director says (Art At It's Finest! Barf!)

    A US film featuring actors performing real sex is a "call to arms" against President George W. Bush, the director told journalists at the Cannes film festival. "Shortbus," an explicit, largely improvised arthouse flick that includes a rendition of the American national anthem during a gay sex scene, is a direct provocation, director John Cameron Mitchell admitted. "It's a little bit of a cri de coeur to us, a little bit of a call to arms" against the prevailing conservatism, he told a media conference, adding that his country was living in "the era of Bush, which is about clamping...

    Although the circumstances surrounding the agreement are still cloudy, Randy Quaid has dropped his lawsuit against Brokeback Mountain studio Focus Features. Most of Tinseltown knows by now that Randy Quaid, one of the stars of this year's Oscar-winning pic Brokeback Mountain, brought a lawsuit against the film's studio, Focus Features, claiming he was duped out of a proper salary because the studio was touting it as an indie, arthouse film that would most likely not bring in big bucks at the box office. The actor claimed that Focus knew the film would perform well at the box office, and he...

    BOSTON, Massachusetts (Reuters) -- A Massachusetts correctional officer is being disciplined for showing the gay cowboy movie "Brokeback Mountain" to inmates at the state's largest prison because his boss determined that the film includes content inappropriate for a prison setting. Massachusetts Department of Correction spokeswoman Diane Wiffin said Saturday that the action was not related to the critically acclaimed film's plot involving a gay love affair. "It was not the subject matter. It was the graphic nature of sexually explicit scenes," Wiffin said. She said the officer, whom she declined to identify, failed to follow prison guidelines that require staff...

    A by-the-book warden pulled the plug during a jailhouse showing of the controversial gay-cowboy movie “Brokeback Mountain” yesterday, fearing the film’s steamy scenes violated the facility’s no-movie-sex policy. Faster than you could say “I wish I knew how to quit you,” inmates at MCI-Norfolk found their afternoon matinee ended just 10 minutes before the Academy Award-winning movie’s ending. The cons were assembled in the gym yesterday afternoon to watch the film about a love affair between two gay cowboys and their trysts on an isolated mountainside - that is, until a prison official shut it off. However, the prisoners did...

    NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - A Bahamian government board's decision to ban the movie "Brokeback Mountain" has prompted charges of discrimination and censorship in the island chain. Gay rights groups and others have called on the Plays and Films Control Board to reverse its decision prohibiting theaters from showing the award-winning movie about a troubled love affair between two cowboys. "You have a group of people who are telling grown men and women what they can and cannot watch," said Philip Burrows, a theater director in the island chain. "I cannot understand denying people the right to make their own choices."...
