    By Cindy Frazier Updated: Friday, June 12, 2009 12:02 AM PDT There are No comments posted. haron and I went on vacation to the East Coast a couple of weeks ago and came back a married couple. Well, we are married in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Iowa, that is. Not in California — yet. But that’s OK, it’ll come back around in our home state. And if not, then the federal government will make our marriage legal in all 50 states before too many years pass. Or not. Our Connecticut marriage is safe and solid....

    Yesterday - less than three months after Kenneth W. Starr and I appeared in the California Supreme Court on behalf of our ProtectMarriage.com Campaign to defend Prop 8 - the Court finally issued its decision... all 185 pages of it! By a 6 to 1 vote, a nearly-unanimous majority of the Supreme Court upheld the vote of the people by which Prop 8 was passed into law to protect traditional marriage in our State Constitution. You can read the decision here as it appears on the Court's website. While there were no real surprises in the decision, and it looks...

    SAN FRANCISCO - California's attorney general has changed his position on the state's new same-sex marriage ban and is now joining forces with homosexual activists to overturn the results of Proposition 8. In a dramatic reversal, Attorney General Jerry Brown filed a legal brief saying the measure that amended the California Constitution to limit marriage to a man and a woman is itself unconstitutional because it deprives a minority group of a fundamental right. Earlier, Brown had said he would defend the ballot measure against legal challenges from gay marriage supporters. But Brown said he reached a different conclusion "upon...

    Kenneth W. Starr, the former U.S. Solicitor General who led the inquiry into President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica L. Lewinsky, will argue the case in favor of upholding a ban on gay marriage before the California Supreme Court. Starr was today named lead counsel for the official proponents of Proposition 8. This afternoon, the group filed court briefs defending the legality of the proposition, which was approved by 52% of California voters last month throwing into question thousands of marriages performed during the five months the practice was legal in the state. The briefs are in response to a...

    Just a few years ago, I took the opportunity to attend special guest appearances by two high-profile political personalities at Syracuse University whose visits were within a few weeks of each other—Ralph Reed, former leader of the Christian Coalition and a Republican strategist on the right, and Jocelyn Elders, former surgeon general of the United States during the Clinton administration and a Democrat of decidedly left orientation. Although their addresses and responses to questions that followed illustrated vividly their wide differences of opinion on current issues, that was not the most striking contrast between the two mid-week evening events at...

    Intolerant liberals? What mythical creatures do you speak of? A good friend of mine took "YES ON 8" signs, taped them to his truck and drove through West Hollywood today with myself in the passenger seat Essentially, we made a "victory lap" through the most heavily homosexual part of LA (perhaps anywhere; even the SF bay area is intimidated by their sheer gay prowess) Needless to say, the Liberal backlash was slightly less than tolerant. One woman, frothing at the mouth, cursing loudly and (get ready for it) driving a Subaru insisted we were evil and proceeded to spit on...

    Vandals hit two S.J. homes with signs supporting ban on same-sex marriage For the second time in a week, homeowners in South San Jose have been targeted for their support of a proposition that would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Unlike the previous incident where no law was broken, the culprits who spray-painted large "No on 8" messages Sunday night on the garage doors of two homes on a cul-de-sac near Monterey and Bernal roads could face jail time and a fine if arrested and convicted. San Jose police were called to the scene...

    Proposition 8 square-off Opposing groups hold rallies on same-sex marriage ballot One side cast its argument as supporting equal rights and the other as being for traditional family values, bringing them down on opposite sides of the Proposition 8 same-sex marriage ballot measure. The Sunday afternoon setting in Salinas was a raucous "traditional family values" parade down Main Street, whose participants mostly supported a "yes" vote on 8 while those endorsing a "no" vote lined the three-block parade route. The ballot measure in the Nov. 4 General Election, which would change the state Constitution, eliminates the right of same-sex couples...

    For the past three days, Michele and Bob Sundstrom and their five children have been painfully aware of the SUV parked in front of their house with a message painted on the rear windshield that says: "Bigots live here." Their neighborhood near Blossom Hill Road has suddenly become the center of a political tempest over Proposition 8, the ballot measure to ban same-sex marriage. The Sundstroms said they were stunned on Sunday afternoon when two women parked a Chevrolet Suburban in front of their home and began painting slogans on the SUV to counter the family's huge "Protect Marriage Yes...

    (snip) ...about 100 cheering, sign-waving people greeted a "Yes on 8" bus making its only Bay Area stop on a weeklong, statewide tour. Although the rally was in the parking lot of the predominately African-American Foothill Missionary Baptist Church, the crowd was mostly white and Asian/Pacific Islander. "I'm in the business of saving souls," the Rev. Maurice Scott of Oakland's Great St. John Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church told the crowd. "We sit in different congregations, and we stand in different pews, but the word of God has brought us together today. ... Man shall not lie with mankind as he...

Anthony Morley, 36, the first winner of Mr Gay UK, was told he would serve a minimum of 30 years in prison for the murder of 33-year-old Damian Oldfield.

The judge said the murder was "one of the most gruesome" he had encountered. Morley slashed Mr Oldfield's throat before stabbing him several times. Sentencing,...

    HIV-positive men told a Dutch court on Wednesday how a three-member gay gang tried to infect them with the AIDS virus at sex orgies. "I feel fear, anger, sadness and anxiety," one of the alleged victims testified before the district court in Groningen on the third day of the week-long trial. "I have lost a lot of weight," lamented the student, who is infected with HIV. The three accused, all HIV-positive, are charged with drugging gay men at sex orgies, raping them, and injecting them with blood contaminated with HIV. They are aged 39, 49 and 50. The three, including...
