    A New Jersey waitress who raked in thousands in donations after claiming a couple didn’t tip her because she’s gay was fired from her job on Saturday. Dayna Morales, 22, was finally canned from Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater — nearly a month after she made national headlines over what’s likely a hoax. (snip) “She exaggerated every story,” former coworker Julie Howat told The Post. “I knew [the receipt] was fake. When the articles came out, everyone at my job laughed.”

    As reported at the Gateway Pundit, moments after the DOMA ruling in the Prop 8 case, Sandy Steir promised "to keep pushing until gay marriage is legal in all states..." "[Steir]: "...we thank the Justices for letting us get married in California. But that's not enough. It's gotta go nationwide. And we can't wait for that day."" Now my take: While the polls may show a shift concerning same-sex marriage, only a few states have legalized same-sex marriage. The questions now are: 1.) How many of the members of Congress still around from the June 7, 2006 Senate vote (concerning...

    There are seven distinct ways the court could rule: If the merits are reached (meaning that the court decides the case meets the constitutional requirements to be adjudicated and a ruling released): The Nationwide Solutions: 1) The court could rule that Proposition 8 is constitutional. This would allow states to confine marriage to a union between a man and a woman. 2) The court could rule that it is a violation of the equal protections act of the 14th amendment to prevent same-sex couples from marrying. This would essentially legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states. The 8 state solution:...

    A gay Los Angeles artist who's admitted to vandalizing a local Chick-fil-A eatery is being investigated by the police. Artist Manny Castro was so perturbed by CEO Dan Cathy's comment about gay marriage, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Castro Thursday scrawled the words "Tastes Like Hate" in huge lettering on the side of the Torrance restaurant. To his credit, the artist came forward to identify himself as the unknown vandal, but he should at least be forced to pay restitution for the cleanup. Why should the owner foot the bill? This week's Chick-fil-A hoopla has shown...

    Is JC Penney trying to become GayC Penney, or is it just a smart marketer? Last year, the company announced that Ellen DeGeneres, who is openly gay, would be its latest spokesperson. On Mother’s Day, it featured a lesbian couple in one of its ads. And now, just in time for Father’s Day, the retail chain has issued another print ad, this one with real-life couple Todd Koch and Cooper Smith, and their two young children. The copy reads: “What makes Dad so cool? He’s the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver — all rolled...

    The Obama administration announced Tuesday that it will support a congressional effort to repeal a federal law that defines marriage as a legal union between a man and woman. White House spokesman Jay Carney denounced the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), saying the administration will back a bill introduced this year by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to remove the law from the books. Feinstein’s bill, called the Respect for Marriage Act, would “uphold the principle that the federal government should not deny gay and lesbian couples” the same rights as others, according to Carney. The Senate is scheduled to...

    12:18 a.m. | Updated Just hours before President Obama planned to sign on Wednesday the repeal of the military’s 17-year ban on gays serving openly in the armed forces, Republicans tried one last legislative maneuver to block the change. Republicans in the Senate filed an amendment to a sweeping defense authorization bill that would have required the four military service chiefs to be part of the certification process called for in the bill that repeals the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. That would have put Marine Corps chief General James Amos, a vocal opponent of the repeal, in line to...

    People who take polls for a living will tell you that, depending on the methodology, the sample, how a question is asked and the understanding of the ones being polled, the outcome can pretty much be predetermined. If you are dependent on a superior for your job and that superior tells you he wants a certain conclusion reached about a policy he wishes to implement, that, too, can affect the outcome. Such is the case with President Barack Obama, who has told gay rights groups he intends to end the "don't ask, don't tell" policy and allow homosexuals to serve...

    More details are emerging about the case of Wikileaker Pvt. Bradley Manning and they are… Gagalicious. Manning's plan to download and leak thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks hinged on lip-syncing to "Telephone". Manning allegedly leaked the Iraq Apache helicopter video, and it's believed he also downloaded over 150,000 diplomatic cables from the military's SPIR-Net and shared them with Wikileaks. How did he do it without arousing suspicion? According to the New York TimesAccording to the New York Times: "He was able to avoid detection not because he kept a poker face, they said, but apparently because he hummed and...

    Bradley Manning, 22, had just gone through a breakup. He had been demoted a rank in the Army after striking a fellow soldier. He felt he had no future, and yet he thought that by sharing classified information about his government's foreign policy, he might "actually change something." A series of instant messages from Manning to a stranger open a window into the anguished state of the former Army intelligence analyst, who was detained late last month for allegedly leaking classified video and documents to Wikileaks.org.

The group of self-described homosexual anarchists, Bash Back!, claims the evangelical church is guilty of “transphobia and homophobia.” The protesters outside the church were beating on buckets, shouting “Jesus was a homo” on a megaphone and carrying an upside-down pink cross. Fire alarms went off inside the church, protesters stormed the pulpit and a huge rainbow-colored flag was unfurled with the inscription, “IT’S OKAY TO...

    San Francisco (AP) -- The words "bride" and "groom" will reappear on all marriage license applications issued in California starting next month, state health officials said. In a notice posted on its Web site, the California Department of Public Health says it is making the change because many couples still wanted the option of identifying themselves in traditional terms. When same-sex marriage became legal in the state on June 16, the health department issued new gender-neutral marriage forms with the words "Party A" and "Party B" where "bride" and "groom" used to be.

    It's one thing to be respectful of gays and gay parents. It's quite another to engineer a deceptive study and use it to assert that lesbian families are a better environment in which to raise boys than heterosexual families. That's what former Stanford University gender scholar Peggy F. Drexler, Ph.D. does in her new book, "Raising Boys Without Men: How Maverick Moms Are Creating the Next Generation of Exceptional Men." Not surprisingly, a friendly mainstream media is helping her promote her claims. In the book's opening pages, Drexler's message is one of tolerance for various family forms, as she notes...

    Many gay activists compare their current “civil rights” struggles with those faced by blacks in the segregated South in the 1950s. The comparison is deemed offensive by many blacks, given that the average black income is still much lower than the average white income in America. Blacks’ educational attainment still falls well below that of white Americans, even fifty years after the landmark Brown decision. By contrast, gay Americans are wealthier and more educated than their straight counterparts. Nonetheless, lesbian millionaire (and North Carolina Senator) Julia Boseman thinks they need a helping hand. That’s why her family started a special...

    The Gay and Lesbian Days celebrated in Kraków has aroused heated discussion in the city and somewhat divided local society. The main bone of contention is today's gay and lesbian demonstration in the Old Town, which according to the organizers is to show gays and lesbians that they do have equal rights. Apart from homosexuals, Amnesty International, various feminist organizations and environmentalists will join the march organized as part of ‘the Culture of Tolerance' festival. However, while gay rights has been accepted as a tenet of modern liberal democracy in the EU for many years, Mlodziez Wszechpolska of the Polish...

    Five years after Matthew Shepard's murder, Wyoming is confronting homosexuality with surprising candor. A report from the gay frontier It's tempting to think there are two gay Americas, one frightened and one fabulous, a merely gay America and a fully Queer America. An America where the gay bars darken their windows to hide ashamed patrons, and an America where straight people stand in line to get into gay clubs. An America where the June 26 Supreme Court decision legalizing sodomy had more than symbolic consequences, since gay sex was still a crime in 13 states. And an America where instead...

    Reverend says people misinterpret Bible's view on gays Jennifer Ross | Staff Reporter October 27, 2003 People read the Bible as the absolute truth, but they pick and choose words, phrases and sentences for support, a speaker said Sunday night at the Student Center.

Gorman, professor of religious studies at Bethany College, discussed what the Bible says about homosexuality. He discussed possible interpretations and misinterpretations.

    "There's a myth of progress in Oakland County that must be looked into," said Jeffrey Montgomery, executive of the Triangle Foundation, a gay rights organization in the Detroit area. "As far as I am concerned, this is a cynical vote in favor of intolerance." American Civil Liberties Union attorney Jay Kaplan also was "terribly disappointed" with the vote. "It was a mean-spirited action that sends a message to the rest of Michigan about Oakland County favoring intolerance," Kaplan said. "You could tell from the body language of many of the commissioners that they had already made up their minds." "As...

    It's not a contradiction. Neither are you. I like that. If I had the money I'd put it up on billboards across America and if I ever win the lottery maybe I'll do just that. I suppose I need to actually play the lottery to raise my odds on winning but that's neither here or there. When I wrote that short little phrase, and as I write this essay I'm thinking of you who fervently believe there's no such thing as a "Christian lesbian." You consider the term to be an oxymoron but more than that, you regard it an...
