NOM's Roback Morse warns about the evil, pro-LGBT TV
The telly is trying to trick you into supporting LGBT people. This according to the latest from the National Organization For Marriage's Jennifer Roback Morse:
Careful there, Jen. The grass has been known to host a few gay wedding ceremonies, the trees hold the tree houses of some lesbian mothers' children, and the bugs have been known to buzz around a few pride parades.
Guess you're going to just have to teach your kids that we exist among you. Crazy as that sounds.
Liberty Counsel attempts to turn anyone–can–opt-in email blast into sinister, insular act
The White House's "LGBT Update" is available to anyone. It is basically an email version of the LGBT-centered content that the White House posts on its blog. All you have to do to receive the email digest is click the following link and enter your details:
Sign Up for Updates on Issues Impacting the LGBT Community [WhiteHouse.gov]
But leave it to the exceedingly anti-LGBT Liberty Counsel to take this simple outreach effort and turn it into some sort of secret email that is being sent around to federal employees. In its partisan-driven attempt to turn anything into a "scandal," this anti-gay legal group is accusing the administration of using this publicly available email blast to "force" federal workers to support its "LGBT affirmative action" program:
Boy, you sure caught 'em that time, LC! What next, going to ding Groupon for the militant save-a-buck agenda its forcing on its email subscribers?

Congressman with 0% HRC rating inadvertently attends pro-gay reception
This is not an Onion story. This actually happened:
Rep. Ralph Hall, who, at 90, is both the oldest serving member of Congress and the oldest person ever to serve in the House of Representatives, was supposed to attend a Capitol Hill reception hosted by a fellow lawmaker, but accidentally walked into the wrong room and found himself in the midst of some very confused members of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.

No word if Rep. Hall is currently being treated for any gay cooties he may have acquired. My calls to the Capitol clinic have not been returned.
Gang violence, rape, drug abuse, molestation, racism, and—my committed marriage?!
Fred Luter, the president of the largest Protestant denomination in this country (with over 16 million members), used his key speaking slot at the 2013 Southern Baptist Convention to equate gay people and our marriages with actual social ills like violence, drug abuse, and rape. As Jesus would, of course:
Everyone sing: ♫ "And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love, yes they'll know we are Christians by our love." ♫
FRC prays for 'converted' gays
The Family Research Council rounds out this week's "prayer targets" with eight targeted issues. The sixth one tells FRC supporters to pray for our "conversion," linking out to the testimony of an "ex-lesbian":
NOM's Roback Morse: Married gay men are like mothers with strings of boyfriends
On this day, as I celebrate my four years of being legally married to the only man I have slept with in ten years (and the only man I will sleep with for the rest of my life), I can't help but find this extra insulting:
Oh please, Jennifer. You refuse to "accept the category of gayness": that is the real problem. You don't even believe gay men like me should be gay, and you don't want others to believe it either. You refuse to accept my marriage because you refuse to accept that people like me exist among you. You have admitted, on multiple occasions, that you want gays to be celibate.
And you know what, Madame Ruth Institute? I don't give a flying flip-flop whether or not you accept me, my husband, our marriage, or our soon-to-grow family. But you will not—you. will. not.—stand in the way of my happiness. That is a promise. Your meddling will not undermine my worth, rights, or happiness.
Today in 'We couldn't win against him so we'll just make sh*t up': POTUS joined Rev. Wright's church b/c of its 'DownLow Club'; Jesse Jackson arranged Obamas marriage
As you can see from the screenshots that illustrate this video, Jerome Corsi still appears with some frequency on various Fox News programs. Now listen in as this man who is prominent enough to remain on the conservative punditry circuit repeats his claims about President Obama being gay, about Michele Obama having a "nasty disposition" that makes her "not the kind of woman that most heterosexual men are going to be immediately attracted to," about Jesse Jackson arranging the Obamas marriage (with assists from Valerie Jarrett and Rev. Wright), and about President Obama's mom "not caring about this kid all that much" so she probably let him experience sex as a child (since "once you go past traditional marriage it's a pretty slippery slope down to homosexual relationships to threesomes to pedophilia to you name it").
But more than that, listen how Mr. Corsi sells these crazy fictions as if he actually believes them to be true:
You may now resume your regularly scheduled reality.
Illinois' leading marriage equality opponent promotes 'overcoming same-sex attraction disorder'
The Illinois Family Institute continues to be the top group standing in the way of equality in the Land of Lincoln. The IFI also continues to show that its true agenda goes far beyond our ring fingers:
Hey, Illinois lawmakers: They want to "cure" us! This is the extreme, outrageous, and scientifically-discredited viewpoint with which some of you chose to side rather than to support basic civil freedoms for your tax-paying constituents.
By standing with the IFI rather than with civil marriage rights, feet-dragging lawmakers are sending the truly dangerous message that LGBT people have "disorders" that can and should be "fixed." That is what they believe, and that is what they want Illinoisans to believe—and neither cause can be detached from their advocacy on marriage!
It's time for the legislators to fix their mistake.
Bill Donohue: Catholic Church's gay lobby 'needs to be rooted out'
The Pope says there is one. Bill Donohue says it needs to go:
"To the extent that there still is a gay lobby—there's no doubt that there still is one in the Catholic Church—it needs to be rooted out"
—Catholic League head Bill Donohue, speaking to NewsMax
Well actually, Bill, polling suggests Catholics support equality more than the national average. Perhaps this gay lobby needs to be rooted on, not out.
