Opponents of marriage equality are saying loudly that they have been silenced. […]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.

They held […]
Mike Huckabee isn’t just on the wrong side of history. He lacks the basic intelligence to distinguish history from his small-minded fantasies of right wing Christian theocracy. […]
The Supreme Court of the United States has announced this morning a decision that homosexual couples must have the same legal access to marriage as heterosexuals do.
Same-sex marriage is now legal across the United States. The name of the case is Obgerfell et. al v. Hodges, Director, Ohio Department of Health, et al.
In 2015, Rick Santorum is running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
In 2006, Rick Santorum took to the floor of the Senate to argue for S.J. Res. 1, a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would expressly outlaw any definition of marriage other than heterosexual coupling. Then-Senator Santorum asked […]
Dennis Hastert is just the latest in a long line of Republican politicians who use their power to persecute gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender Americans, but then turn out to have pursued homosexuality in their own private lives. […]
Today, Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said, “I am absolutely faithful to the issue of marriage. Not because it’s politically expedient, but because it’s the Biblical position, the historical position and the right position. We must defend, protect and preserve traditional marriage.”
