  • President Obama Is Ending Black America's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy (Obama is the Messiah!)

    Since President Obama declared his support for marriage equality last week, many politicos (including myself) have speculated about whether black voters, who are divided on the issue, will abandon him. The consensus among gay rights supporters and foes alike is a resounding "no." Sure, some black clergy are outraged, but even they admit this issue is no deal breaker. And the ongoing debate over an unlikely black backlash eclipses what promises to be the most profound impact of the president's "evolution." President Obama has single-handedly dismantled the "don't ask, don't tell" policy within the black church -- that silent disdain...

    When President Obama announced to Robin Roberts of ABC News that his position on marriage equality had finally “evolved” to the point that he now supports it, Obama made history, again. “At a certain point, I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told Roberts making him the first sitting American president to occupy that position. I heard a quote bandied about the day of his somewhat anticlimactic revelation to Roberts attributed to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “The...

Only 24 percent said that Obama did it “mostly because he thinks it is right.” Host Chuck Todd asked Cutter about the poll, admitting that the methodology of the poll was different, because it was a callback poll. "Put those caveats aside thats a lot...

    Whether it was a flip-flop, or an evolution, or a change of view, President Obama is the first sitting president to endorse same-sex marriage. Coincidentally, the same week the president announced this change, Cyndi Lauper, one of the biggest activists for gay and lesbian rights in the entertainment community was in town. Lauper came to D.C. to receive an award for her work to end LGBT -- lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender -- youth homelessness. Hearing the president's support for same-sex marriage, she said, felt extraordinary. "I've never been so proud of a president before, I'm so proud to be...

    If Time is going to feature a woman breastfeeding on its cover to foment attention for its magazine, Newsweek apparently isn’t going to sit still and allow Time to get all the attention. On this week’s issue of Tina Brown’s Newsweek magazine, President Barack Obama is adorned with a rainbow halo, with the headline “The First Gay President,” an obvious play off commentary that former President Bill Clinton was “the first black president.” The cover promotes the story by Andrew Sullivan, who admitted on his Daily Beast blog and on this weekend’s “The Chris Matthews Show” that the announcement was...

    Victoria's deputy chief psychiatrist joined forces with doctors lobbying the Federal Government to ban same-sex marriage. Twenty-two Victorian GPs, anaesthetists, obstetricians, palliative care specialists and psychiatrists, including Prof Kuravilla George, have joined 150 colleagues interstate to argue gay marriage poses a health risk to society. In a letter to the Senate's inquiry into marriage equality, the group wrote that it was "important for the future health of our nation" to retain the definition of marriage as being between a man and woman. "We submit the evidence is clear that children who grow up in a family with a mother and...

A Texas pastor who once led the Southern Baptist Convention in introducing a resolution that recognized Obama’s historic achievement has voiced his displeasure with the president’s support and approval of gays, reports the Associated Baptist Press.

    President Obama announced that his thinking has evolved to the point where he now supports the idea that persons of the same sex are entitled to marry one another. “Look, Jesus spent his career in the company of men,” Obama pointed out. “He never married. I think we have a pretty good indication that it was only the prejudice of the religious and secular authorities that prevented him hooking up with one of the Apostles—perhaps the mysterious ‘beloved apostle.’ I say it’s time that prejudice and repression of gays come to an end.” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) said...

    After Obambi coming out for gay marriage, and Pelosi saying her Catholic Faith allows her to "not discriminate" against the gay/lesbian/bi/trans community, I'm done. Along with TV, movies, print, education institutions, parades, et al, that promote the GLBT life styles, I am fed up. We are way beyond them wanting tolerance. Now we are being indoctrinated to accept such as a normal lifestyle and possibly change our desires to their perverted proclivities.

    The controversy that has erupted this week over President Obama's stance on same-sex marriage has cast a spotlight on the importance of the gay community to his re-election fundraising efforts. Many of Obama’s key financial supporters are gay, including finance director Rufus Gifford and Democratic National Committe treasurer Andrew Tobias, and the campaign has held a steady series of fundraisers focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender donors. A review of Obama’s top bundlers--those who have brought in $500,000 or more for the campaign--shows that about one in six publicly identify themselves as gay. His overall list of bundlers also...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's campaign says he's "disappointed" with North Carolina's constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Obama campaign spokesman Cameron French said in a Tuesday statement that the ban on same-sex unions is "divisive and discriminatory." French says same-sex couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples. North Carolinians overwhelming voted Tuesday to amend their state constitution, strengthening a state law that already outlawed same-sex unions.

    There was no single blow, stomp or strike to Robert Champion's bruised and battered body that killed him as he was pummeled by fellow Florida A&M University marching band members during a hazing ritual aboard a charter bus last fall. Instead, his death was caused by multiple blows from many individuals. That inability to pinpoint which blow ultimately caused the 26-year-old drum major's death led authorities to charge 13 defendants Wednesday with hazing rather than more serious counts like manslaughter or second-degree murder.

    ST. PETERSBURG—The anti-Western rhetoric that dominated Russia’s recent elections has a new focus, with gays targeted as symbols of Western permissiveness in a wave of laws being adopted across the country. Here in St. Petersburg, a city that prides itself as the most European in Russia, the lawmaker behind a new local ban on gay “propaganda” has said that he is defending traditional Russian values against an onslaught from the West. Gay activists — two of whom were the first to go on trial this week on charges of violating the new law — counter that the rules will legitimize...

    WASHINGTON (BP) -- Perhaps trying to send a message to gay activists who want him to do more, President Obama's re-election website has posted a timeline of 40 specific accomplishments his administration has made for the gay community -- a timeline that no doubt will be referenced both by his supporters and opponents in the coming months. The rainbow-colored timeline begins in June 2009, when he ordered the federal government to extend some benefits to the partners of gay federal employees, and ends in March of this year, when he announced his opposition to a North Carolina constitutional amendment that...

    United States: between Gayland and Mohammedland Largest Protestant nation in the world doesn’t know if it wants to be Sodom or Saudi Arabia By Julio Severo In American schools, Islam is becoming compulsory subject in many places. In Colorado, students were forced to sing the song “Zikr”, written by A. R. Rahman, one passage of which says: “There is no other truth but Allah.” In 1963, the Supreme Court ruled that Bible reading in schools was unconstitutional, banning the Christian sacred book in classrooms where most students were from Christian homes. Today American students are forced to sing that Allah...

    Russian lawmakers have submitted a bill that would impose fines for spreading gay "propaganda" among minors, setting up a tolerance test for the Kremlin-controlled parliament ahead of Vladimir Putin's inauguration as president. The bill echoes local laws whose adoption in cities including St. Petersburg has drawn an outcry from human rights and gay activists, who say they could be used to clamp down on the gay community. It would impose fines of up to 5,000 roubles ($170) on individuals and up to 500,000 roubles ($17,000) on companies for spreading "propaganda of homosexualism" among minors. Critics say that while ostensibly targeting...

    On St. Patrick's Day I had the pleasure of speaking to about 350 Catholics who gathered together to attend a conference put on by New Ways Ministry, which is an effort to support the LGBT community in the Catholic Church. The women and men I spoke to included nuns and priests, children who had come out and parents who wanted to be supportive. Two female priests gave me special blessing and I left the meeting inspired by the devotion of those who attended. New Ways Ministry has a critical mission, since changing the Church will help those who suffer from...

Suddenly someone comes up, asks to play, but demands to be allowed to carry the ball like an American footballer. What should the coach do? Why would the player not simply find a football team to play for? Now imagine the superintendent of that soccer league. Suddenly, one team has a new coach -- a former football coach. The superintendent decrees that the team be expelled from...
  • Urban Meyer apologizes to LGBT community for slight

    Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer sent an apology letter to a lesbian and gay advocacy group on campus for his plans to use lavender football jerseys as a form of punishment to players in practice according to 10TV.com and the OSU campus newspaper, The Lantern. The lavender jersey would be given to a player caught "loafing" - or a moment of deceleration - for the second time during a conditioning drill. The concept was created by Ohio State strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti. The school will now use a different color.
