'Another fake story of anti-Christian persecution revealed to be wrong' and other Wednesday midday news briefs

No, This Air Force Sergeant Was Not Fired For Opposing Marriage Equality - One of the most dangerous attacks on lgbt equality are stories like this - anecdotal claims which are pushed and driven hard by the right-wing media and helped by lgbts eager to demonstrate how objective they are BEFORE the truth comes out. Usually, the truth is totally different from the claims driven by religious right groups. When stories like this come out, please wait to hear the entire incident before commenting. 

Maggie Gallagher issues actual response to Gov. Christie (which is just like the one she says was issued in error) - So Maggie Gallagher issues a statement regarding Gov. Christie signing a ban on "ex-gay" therapy for minors . . . and it's just like the first statement she claimed she didn't make. It's as if she didn't realize that we would be waiting regardless of how long it did take her to make a statement.

I'm still a bit puzzled that Christie signed the ban on de-gaying. I know he's trying to look moderate, but considering that California is the only other state to have legislated a ban it looks like Christie's getting more out in front on an lgbt issue than I'd have expected. He vetoed the equal marriage rights bill and hasn't reneged on that. Doesn't the religious right LOVE that ex-gay stuff? I mean, they use it to prove that they love and want to help gay people - by, you know, loving them into de-gaying. Is he alienating a big part of the Republican base? What am I missing?
