Banning gay marriage == banning love

There’s no secret that I am a huge Keith Olbermann fan. His Special Comments are always insightful, even though they are also kinda pompous and arrogant. But this is one of the first (that I can remember) where he is emotional instead of angry. Olbermann speaks with feeling and humility directly to those who oppose gay marriage. It is a poignant point he makes, asking why anyone would/could choose to ban love. How anyone couldLearn More

No one was stepping off ofLearn More

Homosexuality, self-loathing and church leaders

I still don’t know whether I should feel sorry for church leaders who get busted for homosexual tendencies, or whether I should chalk it up karmic justice.

The married pastorLearn More

Not surprisingly, Colorado voters are split on gay marriage/civil unions

So now I probably should’ve expected this: Colorado voters are of two minds regarding marriage equality (via 9news.com): A new poll shows Colorado voters want to define marriage and, at the same time, allow same-sex couples to become domestic partners.Amendment 43 wants to change the Colorado Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman.

Ugh ugh ugh…. you know that the Catholic church is doing something wrong when members of its own organizations (in this case Catholic charities) resign in protest of the Church’s new medeival views on gay adoption: The state’s four Catholic bishops said this month that the law threatens the church’s religious freedom by forcing it to do something it considers immoral.

Homophobes trying to ban gay adoptions

Never under-estimate the vileness of a homophobe: Drives to ban gay adoption heat up in 16 states.
