'Religious right attempting to spoil marriage equality in Rhode Island, Minnesota' and other Thursday midday news briefs

Conservatives Hope Marriage Discrimination Persists In Rhode Island And Minnesota - You really don't expect them to let us enjoy our day, do you? They simply have to get over it. They kept saying "let the people vote." The people voted. Marriage equality won. End of story.

Tony Perkins: 'It'd be a lot simpler if we operated on the Ten Commandments' rather than civil law - So Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council is expressing a desire for a theocracy. Why am I not surprised. Well at least I'm with him on the 10th commandment. I would NEVER "covet" Tony Perkins' "ass."  

Bipartisan Campaign Launched to Pass Employment Non-Discrimination Act - I totally support this but I've said it once and I will say it again. Without a plan to combat the lies about ENDA head on, it's going to be an UGLY campaign.  

Bryan Fischer: Post-DADT Military "Emasculated, Neutered, Feminized, And Weakened Beyond Repair" - Bryan Fischer ought to know because he is presently serving in the military, right?

Considering that the 4th and 10th Commandments were used by proslavery antebellum Evangelicals as proof texts that God. at the least, condones slavery and patriarchy (not to mention treating women like property in the 10th), I wonder just what Perkins ideas of "a lot simpler" society might be.
