Obama Now Has The Right Position, But Won’t DO Anything With It

President Obama now says that he personally supports same-sex marriage, but intends to do nothing to stop states like North Carolina from prohibiting same-sex marriage. Like Abraham Lincoln before him, he is allowing Southern bigots to trample the authority of the national Constitution. We all know how well that strategy worked out. [...]

Barack Obama Still Won’t Support Legalization Of Same-Sex Marriage, Despite Biden.

Vice President Biden simply didn’t want to say Obama’s position on same sex marriage out loud, because to do so would be to remind Democratic voters that Barack Obama is ideologically much more like a Republican than they would like to admit. [...]

The Bigotry That Billy Graham and Barack Obama Share

I suddenly remembered that Barack Obama had met with Billy Graham. How can Barack Obama reconcile Billy Graham’s opposition to equal rights for gays and lesbians when Obama believes… and that’s where the thought fizzled out. Barack Obama, of course, has expressed opposition to equal rights for gays and lesbians himself. [...]

Jill Stein Wins South Carolina and Connecticut Primary Contests

If you support equal rights for gays and lesbians, don’t do what Barack Obama does, privately hoping that someone else will make the change. You have to take your opinion public, and vote for a candidate who isn’t afraid to speak up for what’s right. If you support marriage equality, support the Jill Stein for President campaign. [...]

Obama Campaign Wants Gays and Lesbians To Hush Up

Obama won’t even speak on the issue of marriage equality, but his aides expect GLBT voters to believe that he secretly supports their right to marriage equality, and is merely biding his time before he actually does anything about it because he’s afraid of what people will say. What we know of Obama makes it difficult to trust his aides in this suggestion. [...]

Workplace Equality by Sexual Orientation: Senate Democrats Match American Public

At least in terms of labor issues and gender equality, the Senate is strongly out of balance. While the Republicans in the Senate are promoting a hard right wing position that’s far beyond popular American opinion, the Democrats are not counterbalancing the GOP agenda. The Senate Democrats are occupying a centrist position, not a position that’s to the left of American opinion. [...]

Non-Christians Have Strongest Base Of Support For Marriage Equality In USA

Christianity isn’t a leading voice for marriage equality in the United States. Secular culture and non-Christian religious culture are leading the way in this cultural trend. Being outside the norm may bring atheists, humanists, Pagans, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists a greater appreciation for a diversity of domestic arrangements, rather than the single model of family life that many Christians demand all Americans conform to. [...]

Out Of State Religious Groups Promise To Interfere In New York Elections

An out of state religious organization plans to use its tax exempt status to interfere in New York’s 2012 state elections, attempting to punish state legislators who voted to expand the institution of marriage. [...]

Marriage Equality In New York Fails To Provoke Wrath Of God

I’m trying to find some evidence that the Christian god is punishing New York State for its approval of same-sex marriage, but haven’t had any luck yet. Anyone have some instances of divine retribution? [...]

Archbishop Says Depriving Gays Of Rights Is Not Anti-Gay

I’ve been puzzling over how Archbishop John Nienstedt could seriously assert that depriving gays of freedom and equality is not anti-gay. [...]

Obama Demands Power To Fire Gays and Lesbians Right Away

Pandering to hatred against homosexual Americans, Barack Obama is now on the record: He’s protecting policies that kick gays and lesbians out of work in the middle of this time of high unemployment. [...]
