    . . . The risk-reward equation for corporate advocacy has changed over time, says Bob Witeck, president of the District-based Witeck Communications, which specializes in the gay and lesbian consumer markets. What’s the worst thing that could happen to Kraft? A denouncement from a special-interest group like One Million Moms…. What’s the best thing? An army of people sends your product around the Internet, and your century-old brand suddenly seems cutting-edge. Indeed, Oreo’s “gay cookie” stunt got a lot of people who might not ordinarily be inclined to shill for one of the largest food corporations in the world to...

    After reports arose that former PLO leader Yasser Arafat’s body will be exhumed for further testing, under the assumption that perhaps he was killed by Israel via radioactive poisoning, the New York Times has picked up right where their pro-Arafat slant left off seven and half years years ago. Writing the Times’ article explaining the poisoning theory, Rick Gladstone described Arafat as “the father figure of Palestinian nationalism.” A father figure? Really? Yet as Newsbusters has shown, this language is not far removed from the praise the Times was heaping on Arafat shortly after his death. In January 2005, the...

    Robert Maurius Reno, one of former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno’s two younger brothers, died Saturday morning, according to their sister, Maggy Hurchalla, of Stuart. The Miami native was born Dec. 11, 1939, at Jackson Memorial Hospital and succumbed to Alzheimer’s disease at the Miami Veterans Administration Medical Center, where he’d been living for about four years. He was 74 and, said Hurchalla “a proud liberal Democrat.’’ Reno became a journalist, like his parents, the late Henry and Jane Reno, and spent most of his career at Newsday, the New York daily, starting as a reporter in 1968. As a...

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Brad Pitt has long been an advocate for gay rights (initially vowing to hold off on marrying longtime love Angelina Jolie until gay marriage became legal nationwide), but his mother, Jane Pitt, apparently takes a different stance on the issue. In a letter penned for her local newspaper, Jane urged Christian voters not to be put off by candidate Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith, as he still maintains conservative views in line with Christian beliefs despite his differing religion — including his posture on gay marriage and abortion. “I think any Christian should spend much time in...

This is just the beginning of more legislation that needs to pass but a great beginning. In . . . 2011, a report found that 76 % of transgender people in Massachusetts have been harassed on the...

    The Penn State horror story has taken a twist for the sicker. And Joe Paterno's legacy is now more clearly defined. E-mails have been uncovered by NBC. Three scared sheep - Penn State's president, vice president and athletic director - were going to alert the real authorities to the possible misdeeds of Jerry Sandusky, until the athletic director spoke with Paterno and persuaded the other two Sheep not to be so rash. Subsequently, at least four more young boys were molested by Sandusky. Paterno apparently persuaded the group to go easy on old Jerry. The athletic director, Tim Curley, e-mailed...

    San Francisco police have arrested veteran gay rights advocate Larry Brinkin in connection with felony possession of child pornography. Brinkin, 66, who worked for the San Francisco Human Rights Commission before his retirement in 2010, was taken into custody Friday night. He spent the night in jail before he was released on bail, according to a spokeswoman for the sheriff's department. The district attorney's office will decide Tuesday whether to file charges. "We're still reviewing the case," district attorney's spokeswoman Stephanie Ong Stillman said Monday. Police say that Brinkin had pornographic images, some that appear to show children as young...

Scout (whose name is legally just the one word), had been planning to propose at this event at the White House for more than a year. He only had to figure out where to do it when he got there. So right after President Obama addressed the crowd and everyone was standing around...

    The Boy Scouts of America is considering a newly-proposed resolution that calls for ending a 102-year-old policy they’ve grappled with in recent years: banning gay scouts and scout leaders, gay advocates told msnbc.com on Wednesday. Though the organization said it would review the proposal, a spokesman insisted there were no plans to change the policy. The new policy would throw out the national ban and allow local chartering organizations to decide whether or not they would accept gay youth and leaders, said Zach Wahls, an Eagle Scout who has advocated for the change, citing unidentified people he spoke to within...

    The Australian Medical Association has distanced itself from a statement made by a group of doctors who say heterosexual marriage is better for children.

Doctors for the Family's convener Lachlan Dunjey has told ABC News Radio the group is concerned about the health consequences for children of gay marriages. "It's well proven that children who grow up with a mother and a father in...

    What are parents to do when their child comes home from school with stories about "this creepy guy in my class" – and it turns out to be the teacher? That’s a very real concern for parents with children in New York City public schools, where 14 teachers of highly dubious character have been reinstated to the classroom – and two others have been given "desk duty" – thanks to appeals by their powerful teachers union, the United Federation of Teachers. NYDailyNews.com reports that 16 teachers "kept their jobs after being brought up on egregious charges, some sexual, some involving...
