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. [...]

More Doubletalk From Obama Administration On Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

Through several outlets today, the Obama White House signals that if anybody’s going to stick their neck out for equality, it’s not going to be Barack Obama. [...]

Buck Up? Fuck You, President Obama.

Barack Obama tells us to buck up, and then he promotes more offshore drilling and defends Don’t Ask Don’t Tell? What kinds of idiots does he think we liberals are? [...]

Religious-Funded National Organization for Marriage Is Dabbling in Elections

Do you recall the National Organization for Marriage? This is the group that spent $1.9 million to make marriage equality illegal in Maine, and spent another $1.9 million to keep same-sex marriage from becoming legal in California.

Through it all, the organization has refused to comply with laws requiring it to disclose its donors. NOM [...]
