    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams released defensive end Michael Sam on Saturday, according to multiple league sources. Sam's efforts to become the first openly gay player in NFL history came up just short in a competition against undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks. Westbrooks is one of nine defensive linemen to land a roster spot. Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have 24 hours to put in a claim for Sam.

    Burke, who came out to team-mates in the 1970s and to the public in 1982, died of AIDS in 1995 aged just 42.More than two decades after Glenn Burke abruptly retired from Major League Baseball, the former LA Dodgers outfielder will be honored at Tuesday night’s all-star game as one of the few professional athletes to have come out. Burke's four-and-a-half year career is remembered for his charismatic attitude and the pressures he faced as a gay athlete in the late 1970s. Burke, who played for the Dodgers and the Oakland A's, was the first professional ball player to come...

    ... Music teacher Flint Dollar has filed a lawsuit claiming Macon, Georgia, Catholic school Mount de Sales Academy discriminated against him based on gender, NPR reports. Dollar can't sue the school for bias against him based on sexual orientation because federal law does not bar such discrimination — and neither does the state of Georgia. Dollar's lawyer, Charles Cox, argues Dollar can use Title VII of the Civil Rights Act — which forbids discrimination based on gender — to sue the school because he was essentially penalized for not conforming to gender stereotypes. ...

Pelosi, who is one of the country's most powerful Catholic politicians, made a passionate appeal to the archbishop not to participate in the National Organization for Marriage's June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington. Cordileone, who is one of the featured speakers at the event, was a leader in the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 California anti-gay-marriage initiative....

    Over the past few days, an online rumor has emerged regarding the question of whether Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is gay. We’ve ignored them, for a couple of reasons. First, it doesn’t matter if he is. Second, he hadn’t personally addressed the rumor. On Tuesday, Rodgers tackled the topic during his weekly appearance on ESPN Milwaukee. We know this because one of the ESPN Milwaukee on-air hosts sent us an email with a partial transcript of Rodgers’ comments. “I’m not gay,” Rodgers said. “I really, really like women. That’s all I can say about that.”

    Not caring about what happens to gay men is like not caring about prison rape. Prisoners are our brothers, too, and so are gay men. We must care deeply about the abuse of our brothers in prison and we must care deeply about the lives led by our gay brothers. Prison rape seems a world away from us, a subject we try not to think about, yet it is rampant, dehumanizing and deadly dangerous. In the same way, we avert our gaze from the lives led by gay men. Certainly ignoring the lives of gay men is what the paladins...

    NBC has decided to send correspondent Thomas Roberts to Moscow this November to co-host the network's coverage of the Miss Universe pageant --an asignment Roberts, who is openly gay, says he took "because it is a huge, visible opportunity for LGBT people." The decision to send Roberts to Russia is a move in opposition of the country's official anti-homosexual stance. Roberts, who is also an MSNBC host, has publicly criticized what he describes as Russia's "homophobic laws," a reference to new laws prohibiting the promotion of nontraditional sexual relationships to minors and the adoption of Russian children by gays.

But if a bill that comes up for a first vote later this month becomes law, such a public kiss could be defined as illegal "homosexual propaganda" and bring a fine of up to $16,000. The legislation being pushed by the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church would make it illegal nationwide to provide minors with information that is defined as "propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and...

Perry, the company’s vice president of Corporate Public Relations.

Perry joined Chic-fil-A in 1983, according to information posted on the website of Hillcrest Church of Christ. He became an elder of the church in...

    If it were not so terribly sad and disgusting, it might be just a bit humorous. But, there is no humor in the radical homosexual movement and its treatment of those who oppose its agenda. That fact was once again illustrated quite clearly recently in the Montgomery County, Maryland School District when the blatant hypocrisy of leftist radicals was on display. What might be ironically humorous if it were not so rotten is that the tables were turned on those who demand fair and unbiased treatment for all sexual deviants, but whose desire for fairness suddenly disappears when they are...

Sixteen other House Democrats have announced their retirements, along with six Republicans (who are all seeking higher office). The mass exodus of Democrats leaves political observers wondering if 2012 will be a bad year for President Obama’s party. But Frank, a liberal icon, blames Massachusetts redistricting rather than any national trend for hastening his departure. “I would have had to work very hard,” explained the congressman, who mustered just 54 percent of the 2010 vote. “I think I would have won, but I...

These texts should not be used by the church because they contradict the loving character and message of Jesus. It should...

The country superstar tells "CMT Insider" airing Saturday on CMT that he doesn't see the reason behind getting into people's personal lives. He says refusing a marriage license to people because they are gay won't stop them from living together, so it accomplishes nothing.

    It may be only a matter of hours before a higher court intervenes, but after hearing arguments, Judge Vaughn Walker has ordered the state to issue same-sex "marriage" licenses as early as next week. The decision to shove Proposition 8 aside so quickly only heaps more outrage on a judge who should have never been allowed to consider the case in the first place. By lifting the "stay" on marriage licenses, he's attempting to plunge the state- and, by extension, the country--into deeper legal chaos just to satisfy his own radical agenda. Even supporters of counterfeit marriage like John Yoo...

    If you’d like to know what hours of fingernail scraping on a chalkboard feels like, simple give the recent California marriage decision a close read. It’s so blatantly biased as to border on comical. And because it is so over-the-top, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will find it hard to uphold it without employing some creative legal gymnastics to minimize the damage created. The man responsible for the opinion is United States District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker, whose conduct at trial and tone in the opinion resembles Perez Hilton at the Miss America pageant. Who can forget Hilton...

    When a federal judge last week struck down California's Proposition 8 as unconstitutional, proponents of same-sex marriage cheered the decision at rallies in West Hollywood and San Francisco. Public displays of displeasure at U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker's ruling were far and few between. But Walker's decision struck an angry chord with many who voted for Proposition 8 in 2008. On Thursday, he extended a temporary hold on his order until Wednesday to give sponsors of the measure time to appeal the ruling. What was once a moral argument has morphed into a debate over the democratic process...

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker, chief of the court in San Francisco, ruled last week that Proposition 8, adopted by California voters in 2008, is unconstitutional. The court said he plans to issue his decision on a stay Thursday morning. Walker issued a temporary stay last week. If he decides to keep his ruling from taking effect pending appeal, same-sex couples might be barred from marriage in California for several years, the Los Angeles Times said....

    U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker's Aug. 4 ruling striking down California's Proposition 8 asserted far more than was necessary to redefine marriage as being between any two persons. Judge Walker's decision included controversial "findings of fact" that amounted to a massive new salvo in the culture wars over sexuality. Drawing up his judicial robes, Judge Walker rejected "stereotypes and misinformation" that "have resulted in social and legal disadvantages for gays and lesbians." He denied that there is "any rational basis" for distinguishing the marriage of man and woman from same-sex relationships. For example, Judge Walker found no reason why...

    Despite the landmark ruling striking down California's ban on same sex marriage, nothing has really changed. Gay and lesbian couples still can't get married, because Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker issued a temporary stay on his decision. Prop. 8 is still in effect while he considers whether his order should be suspended pending an appeal. Lawyers on both sides are presenting arguments either in favor of, or opposed to, allowing gay weddings to resume. Tomorrow, Walker is expected to to rule on this very critical question of if, and when, the state will stop enforcing the 2008 voter-approved ban...

    The Republican mayor of San Diego, who defied elements in his party by declaring in 2007 that he supports same-sex marriage, said he is "absolutely thrilled" by the court ruling striking down Proposition 8, the voter-approved measure that banned same-sex marriages. "I think Judge Walker did a great job of listening to the arguments and making the right decision," said Mayor Jerry Sanders, just minutes before attending a celebratory rally at San Diego's Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual-Transsexual Community Center. Sanders said he would like San Diego County to resume issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples but he understands the need to...

    Republican Sen. Paul Koering's primary campaign for re-election in Senate District 12 on Wednesday was beset with reports he had dinner at Iven's on the Bay with a gay porn star. The Minnesota Independent, a website, cited a twitter from Brandon Wilde and an interview in a separate gay porn news website, The Sword. In the Minnesota Independent story Koering was quoted as saying "I don't see anything wrong with going out with him. Do I think that being a porn star is the best thing? No. But that's his choice. I think he's a nice guy." (...) The report...

    We knew this was coming, but some Republicans chose to keep their heads in the sand. As we reported over the weekend, Mike Rogers of wrote on Saturday that Mark Kirk is definitely gay, and promised to follow up with more details. Rogers has now done just that. His follow-up story is here: Truth or Consequences. We find Rogers’ reporting very credible and frankly it just confirms what’s been widely rumored for years. From Rogers’ article: In an effort to move the base in Illinois Senate race, Kirk decided to tack right and that means throwing the gays (like...

    Just days before Christians worldwide commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus, a college student's production of a play depicting a Christ-like character as a homosexual is infuriating local residents who plan to protest this weekend's event. "Corpus Christi," written by Terrence McNally, is the Tarleton State University project for student director John Jordan Otte, a 26-year-old homosexual who also says he's Christian.

    Did anyone punch anyone? Was there any actual blood? I think I might've missed it. Did Pelosi kick John Boehner in the testicles and then run away laughing before a screeching Virginia Foxx grabbed her by the hair, pulled her to the floor and punched her in the kidneys? Did just about everyone on the House floor bitch-slap Bart Stupak--who should right now vanish of the face of the earth forevermore, you simpering mealworm--while Rahm Emmanuel head-butted Harry Reid, even as both burned a sneering Newt Gingrich doll in effigy? I might've been dreaming. Did Obama finally strut in like...

    Vatican chorister sacked for allegedly procuring male prostitutes for papal gentleman-in-waiting. The Vatican was today rocked by a sex scandal reaching into Pope Benedict's household after a chorister was sacked for allegedly procuring male prostitutes for a papal gentleman-in-waiting. Angelo Balducci, a Gentleman of His Holiness, was caught by police on a wiretap allegedly negotiating with Thomas Chinedu Ehiem, a 29-year-old Vatican chorister, over the specific physical details of men he wanted brought to him. Transcripts in the possession of the Guardian suggest that numerous men may have been procured for Balducci, at least one of whom was studying for...

    The Dutch priest who refused Communion on February 13th to his town's openly homosexual Carnival “prince” is now facing police complaints from homosexual activists.The complaints follow a protest by homosexualists at the Catholic parish in Reusel on Sunday, which was held in response to the decision of the pastor, Fr. Luc Buyens, to withhold Communion from Gijs Vermeulen, 24, at the town's traditional Carnival Mass.Fr. Buyens had alerted Vermeulen in advance, stating that he must refuse him Communion because the young man had made a public display of his active homosexuality leading up to the town's Carnival festivities.Anticipating the protest,...

    In a story last Sunday the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Proposition 8 judge Vaughn Walker is gay and called his orientation, "The biggest open secret in the landmark trial over same-sex marriage." We have no idea whether the report is true or not. But we do know one really big important fact about Judge Walker: He's been an amazingly biased and one-sided force throughout this trial, far more akin to an activist than a neutral referee. That's no secret at all. Protect Marriage, the defendants in this case, are effectively being held hostage by Judge Walker and cannot really...
  • Prop. 8 trial stirs questions, emotions (judge exposed as sodomite)

    The trial on the federal constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, the same-sex marriage ban, has been in many respects a tale of two trials. The question is, which trial was U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker watching? To many observers, the anti-Proposition 8 side appears to have scored all the points. Attorneys David Boies and Theodore Olson spent two weeks attempting to discredit the law, calling dozens of witnesses who gave dramatic and emotional testimony that banning same-sex marriage harms gay couples, their children and even society. But defenders of Proposition 8 say they're missing the point. California voters made...
