'Fox News silent on anti-gay abuses, laws in foreign countries' & other Wednesday midday news briefs

REPORT: Fox News Silent On Anti-Gay Human Rights Crises - It's relatively easy for us to be blase about Fox News' lack of journalistic integrity but something like this goes beyond the pale. Coupled with the fact that Fox News also gives anti-gay group leaders wide berths in unchallenged interviews and is the home of a propaganda artist who constantly spins lies about anti-Christian persecution (Todd Starnes), I take solace in how this network will be remembered by future generations. It won't be a good legacy to have.

New Online Safe Space for Kids with LGBTQ Parents - Excellent idea for a blog meets the needs of a group the anti-gay right will ignore and our groups don't mention enough. 

 Nevada Conservatives To Ninth Circuit: Marriage Equality Is Just Like White Supremacy - You have to admit that this is one hell of a bull@%$! argument against marriage equality.  

Utah Gay Couple Seeking Parenting Rights Joins Lawsuit Against State - Even better. 

 Hiding behind the 'hate' label - A lesson on rhetoric. When anti-gay groups and their supporters say that they don't "hate" lgbts, we need to remind them that we don't care whether they do or don't. It's not about hatred, but their ignorance and their false sense of entitlement in that they feel they are entitled to dictate what makes a family or how they flaunt their deliberate ignorance about lgbt lives and expect not to be called on it.
