Vermont Gay Marriages Begin and the Weather's Fine

Fundamentalist Christian leaders like John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Stephen Bennett and John Piper have spent years insisting that their God sends tornadoes and hurricanes as divine judgment against gay pride parades, churches that respect gays and lesbians, and governments that let same-sex couples get married.

Audition Call for Actresses Pretending to Be Waitresses Against Gay Marriage

Apparently unable to find any actual waitresses or teachers in the state of Maine who oppose gay marriage, James Stiles of the anti-gay Stand for Marriage Maine will be hiring an actress to pretend to be a waitress who is against same-sex marriage. The pretend waitress will pretend to sound sincere in an actual TV [...]

Standing on the Neck of Truth: Lying to Prevent Maine Equality

You’ve got to hand it to “Stand for Marriage,” the group organizing a media campaign to repeal the legality of same-sex marriage in Maine, just for its pluck.

Sarah Palin explains on October 1, 2008 that she opposes Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to self determination because she thinks states should decide such issues, not the federal government:

Charles Adamczyk writes in a letter to the editor to the Erie Times-News:

Gas prices. CEO salaries. Governments. Politicians. Voting. Democracy. Judicial system. Murder. Polygamy. Rape. Homosexual weddings. Ego. Evolution. Entertainment industry, and so on.

Can anyone describe to me the old Roman Empire?

Well, I just did. Unfortunately for me, it’s now called the [...]

If God Exists, He Celebrates Gay Marriage in Greece

Yesterday, the mayor of the Greek island of Tilos performed the nation’s first same-sex marriage in a civil town hall ceremony.
