Your early-ish choice to step up and be counted is both noted and appreciated, Senator. As as is your reluctance, every other GOP Senator.
Anti-LGBT pundits hate nothing more than own words, example #532,123
Thanks for the GLAAD CAP shout out, Brent Bozell:
The official gay censorship lobbies — from the Orwellian-named "GLAAD" to the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association — define "fairness and accuracy" as being stories that try to scrape "fairness" away, treating opposition like used gum on someone's shoe. GLAAD created what they call the "Commentator Accountability Project" designed to discourage reporters and TV bookers from booking "hate" guests.
To quote GLAAD censor Aaron McQuade, "Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from the consequences of speech." If they prevail, the "consequences" of speaking in opposition to the gay lobby equals zero bookings. In their dreamland, every "news" segment looks like the usual MSNBC "Lean Forward" gay segment where everyone embraces the equality and fluidity of "sexual preference."

As you hopefully know, GLAAD CAP is the project that does nothing more—literally, nothing more—than round up the anti-LGBT comments that the anti-LGBT commentators themselves put on the record. And that, my friends, is what the other side hates most: the mirror that we hold up to their movement.

Well if CBN says it, it must be true

AG Holder: Whichever way SCOTUS goes, work continues
Attorney General Eric Holder:
"There are, as we all know, two important decisions the Supreme Court must render in the coming days. Through our capable Solicitor General, and backed by the President, we have made our positions clear. Though we hope that the results of these cases are consistent with the core values that serve as the foundation of our great nation, the work that lies before us today will not be completed by favorable opinions.
Especially this morning, we must recommit ourselves to the work that – however the cases are decided – will remain undone. We have traveled far together on the road to true equality and non-discrimination. But we are not yet at the end of our journey. There are still miles to go, children to be treasured, people to be protected, and rights to be ensured. Important, life-changing work remains."
Full remarks, as prepared:
Video: Powerful 'Families Are Forever' trailer (watch and share!)
The full film will premiere this weekend (6/22) at San Francisco's Frameline film festival. Here's hoping it makes its way to the private film festivals that play out in the living rooms across this great (but still too non-accepting) nation.
Republican does what all GOP candidates will eventually do (i.e. accept gays); feels MassResistance's wrath (i.e. tsk-tsking blog post)
Anti-gay group MassResistance is coming out against Republican U.S Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez for showing up and campaigning at Boston's Gay Pride Festival:
It's interesting how these groups are starting to realize the future that's playing out before them. The stranglehold is slowly lessening and their awareness is setting in. While the GOP is still far from a pro-LGBT party, more and more candidates are looking to demography, the future, and some basic inevitabilities, moving them away from discriminatory "culture wars" and into places where pro-equality people congregate. Groups like MassResistance just don't know what to do with themselves!
So what are they doing? Well, since they won't support progressive Democrat Ed Markey either, these social conservatives are vowing to just leave their ballots blank in the upcoming special election to fill Secretary of State John Kerry's vacated seat. They forfeit; the future wins.
