    Vladimir Putin: Person of the Year in U.S. Gay Magazine By Julio Severo The Advocate, the oldest homosexual magazine in the U.S., has sarcastically announced that its 2014 Person of the Year is Vladimir Putin, seen by Patheos, an American atheist website, as “the horrifically homophobic president of Russia and a committed opponent of all things pro-LGBT.” The magazine cover even illustrates the Russian president as Adolf Hitler. The Advocate got a lot of attention last year when it made Pope Francis its Person of the Year because of his less conservative comments on homosexual issues. In no way...

    Rorate Caeli + Tempus «p.a.» ante Septuagesimam + Now it’s a Trifecta So the Pope has now appeared on the front cover of three American periodicals:  Time Magazine, The Advocate, and Rolling Stone.  For the first two, the Pope was declared Man of the Year.  The caption on the cover of Rolling Stone was “The times they are a-changing”.  What does it mean when the Pope is the cover guy for a main stream but very secular American weekly, for the most prestigious, in some sense, gay periodical in the United States, and now Rolling Stone, the print symbol of...

    Pope Francis Named “Person of the Year” by World’s Biggest Gay Magazine By Julio Severo Praises keep knocking at the door of Pope Francis, who was named “Person of the Year” by The Advocate, the world’s biggest homosexual magazine. It is the second tribute that the pope has received in a week. On December 11, he was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.” In its headline, The Advocate highlighted Francis’ statement, made during a June interview: “If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?” “Pope Francis’ stark change in rhetoric...

    Washington: A US gay magazine has endorsed President Barack Obama for re-election, marking its first endorsement in decades. The magazine ‘The Advocate’ claimed Obama is “a symbol of the promise of America, of the promise of equality and may be the most prominent man on the planet ever.” “Given the pervasiveness of modern media and his [Obama’s] anomalous and historic nature as the first black American president; he is surely the single most recognisable head of state on the globe. By virtue of his unique position, his endorsement of marriage equality is not merely rhetoric,” Politico quoted the magazine, as...

    Biggest world gay magazine: no compassion and tolerance for a former lesbian and her daughter By Julio Severo The Advocate, the biggest gay magazine in America and, in its own words, “The World’s Leading News Source for LGBT”, has just put its sights on LifeSiteNews and me in its defense of lesbian activist Janet Jenkins. The Advocate: Mockery of Christ The mission of The Advocate, as its name implies, is to advocate — for the gay agenda and its militants. Jenkins wants the daughter of her former lesbian partner Lisa Miller, who renounced homosexuality for Jesus. Regardless of the well-being...
  • Cindy McCain Poses for NOH8 Campaign (Comes Out For Gay Marriage)

    Irony hit the jackpot as Cindy McCain, wife of Senator John McCain, posed for the NOH8 campaign, reports the Advocate. As the mother to vocal marriage equality advocate, Meghan McCain, we are surprised at such unanticipated support. Is this the Cindy we all knew to be that staunch republican with a narrow outlook on equality? On a positive aspect, it could be true that not all republicans are anti-gay marriage. According the NOH8's website, Cindy McCain wanted to participate in the campaign to show people that party doesn't matter and that marriage equality isn't a Republican issue any more than...

  • GLBTs Join Michigan Affirmative-Action Debate (a bug-chasing barfer of an advocate's article)

    Despite claims that affirmative action gives unfair advantages to women and people of color, those who grasp the deeper meaning realize that ultimately, it benefits everyone. That's why gays, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) groups in Michigan are banding together to support the civil rights of all people in the state, despite having had their own freedoms trampled when Michigan voters banned same-sex marriage two years ago. "It was wrong to single out a group of citizens for discrimination in 2004, and it's wrong today," Michelle Brown, a member of the Human Right Campaign's Board of Governors, told Between the...

    In an interview with the nation's largest homosexual magazine just weeks before the election, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry leaves open the possibility that he will change his position on same-sex "marriage" and says he will nominate judges who will fight for homosexual causes. The interview is part of the Oct. 26 edition of The Advocate, which features Kerry on the cover. The Massachusetts senator has drawn praise from activists for his opposition to the Marriage Protection Amendment but consternation from some for his stated opposition to same-sex "marriage." Asked directly by The Advocate if he "would ever change" his...

    Kerry's impassioned defense of ... gay marriageNow that John Kerry is running for president, he wants you to think that while he supports "equal protection" for gay and lesbian couples, he’s opposed to gay marriage. His record says otherwise. In fact, John Kerry has previously made statements showing he’s a radical liberal in favor of the whole homosexual activist agenda. In 1996, Kerry wrote an article for the gay magazine The Advocate in which he called the Defense of Marriage Act “unconstitutional,” “unnecessary,” “mean-spirited,” and “malicious.” Kerry was on record saying that every state in the union should be...

    WILLIAMSBURG -- Although what he did could draw a $1,000 fine, John Callahan stands by his actions. Callahan, 77, frequently goes to the Williamsburg Library to catch up on the news, and he occasionally browses the magazine rack. Last week, the cover of one in particular jumped out. “It was right at eye level,” Callahan said, referring to the national gay and lesbian newsmagazine The Advocate. The cover of the Nov. 11 edition features a young white man and a black man, both bare-chested, engaging in a kiss. Their mouths don't quite touch. It may have been a spoof of...
