    Moments after ABC revealed that President Obama said during a taped interview with "Good Morning America" that he supports gay marriage, Fox News' Shepard Smith applauded the president, and warned conservatives not to use the evolution of Obama's view on same sex unions as part of its presidential campaign. "The President of the United States, now in the 21st century," Smith said. "What I'm most curious about, in this time of rising debts and medical issues and all the rest, if Republicans would go out on a limb and try to make this a campaign issue while sitting very firmly,...

    Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday he’s “absolutely comfortable” with same-sex marriage, making him the highest Obama administration official to indicate support for the issue. President Barack Obama remains formally opposed to same-sex marriage, though his position has been said to be “evolving.” On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host David Gregory asked Biden about his own views. “And you’re comfortable with same-sex marriage now?” Gregory asked. “I am vice president of the United States of America,” Biden said. “The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men...

    Dr. Ken Hutcherson, the pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Redmond, Wash., posted an announcement earlier this week that many close to him – including his wife – have known for years. Hutcherson revealed that he is the "gayest man I know." "Coming out of the closet is a difficult decision to make, especially when close, personal relationships are at stake," Hutcherson wrote in his column, Hutch Speaks Out, that was published on WorldNetDaily. "Will my family abandon me? Will my friends still look at me the same? Will this announcement be worth the risk? These are indeed valid concerns...

    The conservative group One Million Moms has launched an attack on JCPenney for featuring a lesbian couple in its new Mother's Day promotion. The group released a statement urging its members to take action against the brand's store managers, in the hope their complaints will be passed on to head office. According to its website, One Million Moms (OMM) is angry JCPenney is 'taking sides' in the 'cultural war' on gay rights. The statement says: 'On pages ten and eleven, under the title “Freedom of Expression,” you’ll find “Wendi and her partner Maggie and daughters”. In the picture both women...

    We do not subscribe to our local newspaper, but I occasionally read one of the copies that comes to the radio station where I work. This past Monday, I read the advice columns that used to be written by identical twin sisters, Pauline Phillips and Esther “Eppie” Lederer, known to us by their pen names as Abigail VanBuren—“Dear Abby”—and Ann Landers. The columns are no longer written by these ladies. Eppie Lederer—Ann Landers—passed away in 2002, and her column, now called “Annie’s Mailbox,” is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar who were two former editors of her column. Pauline...

    Future prez had so much ‘sexual warmth’ – but was ‘out of reach’ She talked about how Obama walked around his bedroom bare-chested, dressed in a blue and white sarong while working on a New York Times crossword puzzle. “I open the door that Barack keeps closed to his room and enter in a warm, private space pervaded by a mixture of smells that so strongly speak of his presence, his liveliness, his habits — running sweat, Brut spray deodorant, smoking, eating raisins, sleeping, breathing,” Cook wrote. Obama and Cook would date for a year. He was 22 and she...
  • Obama: 'New York girlfriend' was composite

    05/02/2012 10:03:08 AM PDT · by tired&retired · 12 replies
    One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama's 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called 'New York girlfriend.' Obama never referred to her by name, or even by psuedonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail. But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the 'New York girlfriend' was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago. "During an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir...

    A bill currently being amended in the California State Senate would make it harder for doctors who practice conversion therapy to service homosexual clients. If passed, it would be the first bill in the United States to regulate the practice. Senate Bill 1127, which was introduced by State Senator Ted Lieu in February, would ban conversion therapy for anyone under the age of 18 and require adults to sign an informed consent form before entering treatment. "Under no circumstances shall a patient under 18 years of age undergo sexual orientation change efforts, regardless of the willingness of a patient's parent,...

    Richard Grenell, an openly gay foreign policy expert hired by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, has resigned after only two weeks on the job. In a statement obtained Tuesday by Jennifer Rubin, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, Grenell said, "While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama's foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign." Grenell also thanked Romney for not making his sexual orientation an issue when...

    Frank gives Obama high marks on gay issues, rips marriage stanceBy Mike Lillis - 04/27/12 05:50 PM ET Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) this week gave President Obama high marks on gay issues, but said it's "a problem" that the administration has declined to endorse gay marriage. Obama this week stirred criticism from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community when, during a trip to North Carolina, he declined to weigh in on a pending state bill banning civil unions and domestic partnerships. Frank, the first openly gay member of Congress, said Obama's silence was expected but disappointing. "It's not...

    The new issue [of Playboy] features an interview with [current Batman comics writer] Grant Morrison, talking superheroes. This is the kind of thing he says… "Gayness is built into Batman. I’m not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There’s just no denying it. Obviously as a fictional character he’s intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay. I think that’s why people like it. All these women fancy him and they all wear fetish clothes and jump around rooftops to get to him. He doesn’t care—he’s more interested...

    The city of Hutchinson, Kan., is mulling over a proposed law that would force some churches in the community, regardless of their religious convictions, to rent their church halls to gay couples for events. The proposal came about after the Kansas Equality Coalition encouraged the Hutchinson City Council to add gender identity and sexual orientation to the city's human relations code. The law would make it illegal for churches that rent their facilities to the public to prevent anyone from renting their facility based on sexual orientation or gender identity. "If a church has a parish hall that they rent...

    The Word of God has warned us, so we are not surprised when people inspired by the forces of darkness screech and wail against God’s Truth. Some of the most vicious, anti-Christian, anti-truth people in the world are the radical, homosexual activists, and among them, not many are as vile as Dan Savage. Savage is a twisted, sex columnist who started the “It Gets Better Project,” a propaganda tool targeting kids, which pushes the homosexual lifestyle on them under the guise of an “anti-bullying” campaign. From their website is this description, “The It Gets Better Project was created to show...

    Mitt Romney's campaign tonight announced that it has hired Richard Grenell, an out gay former George W. Bush administration official, to serve as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's "national security and foreign policy spokesman," according to a report from The Washington Post that did not mention Grenell's sexual orientation. Grenell served through September 2008 in the Bush administration as a spokesman to the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations -- and told The Advocate's Kerry Eleveld as he left the administration that it was his hope that New York would have marriage equality soon and that he would one day...

    As noted on another thread, political pundits often compare presidential elections to previous ones. In the case of Romney vs. Obama, conservatives should look north to the Dominion of Celine Dion and Maple Syrup. This is a repeat of John Tory vs. Dalton McGuinty, the 2007 election in Ontario during which the two candidates contested governance of Canada's largest province. The only difference, other than citizenship, is that John Tory was not Mormon. He was a nominal Protestant, for the most part indistinguishable from the Kennedy Catholic he was challenging. Nevertheless, religion would cost him the election. As Ontario Liberal...
