Meanwhile in the real world, gay folks are DOMINATING

While members of the religious right are patting themselves on the back on a successful Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day (while totally oblivious to how they helped US get the information out on the evil that Chick-Fil-A supports), the following has been happening in the real world:

These are ads which have been unveiled by Amtrak

From Towleroad:

As part of an effort to market its standard discounted family travel program, for the first time, the national passenger rail company included gay families in its materials. In an online ad sent by Instinct magazine to its email subscribers, a photo of same-sex parents with their child is featured.

Two version of the ad, one with a picture of a male couple and another with a female couple, were distributed.  Both versions include the headline: Priceless Family Moments Are Now Affordable.  The ad goes on to promote Amtrak's 50% off campaign for children age 2 to 15 who are traveling with an adult, and directs readers to its gay travel website

Also, Judith Arndt has become the first openly gay athlete to medal at the Olympics in London by winning the silver in Women’s Cycling Time Trials.

From The New Civil Rights Movement:
This is the third Olympic medal for Judith Arndt, who, as a 20-year-old, won silver for the 3000 Meter Pursuit at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. She also won a bronze in Road Race at the Athens Olympics in 2004.
