'SC lawmakers continue war on colleges, gay-themed books' and other Monday midday news briefs

Lawmakers to S.C. colleges: Choose freedom or funding - And the drama continues in my state of South Carolina as lawmakers "punish" colleges for getting their students to read gay-theme books. A chilling part of the entire mess which very few are paying attention to is this quote by the author of the legislation, Rep. Garry Smith:
Smith has said the colleges failed to act responsibly in just presenting one side of an issue.
Does this mean that colleges are going to have make a place for discredited ex-gay therapy studies and junk science or legitimate science cherry-picked to demonize lgbts. In MY backyard? I fan myself with anticipation of the multitude of letters to the editor, columns, and posts I can't wait to write should that become a reality. 

'The Death Sentence of AIDS:' Newly minted Wyoming lawmaker stands by controversial book - Would THIS be the junk that Rep. Smith speaks of when he talks about the other side of the issue. Whatever the case may be, it is the MAIN reason why this blog exists and why I wrote the booklet How They See Us: Unmasking the War on Gay America, which you can read about here and download or if you want to skip the preliminaries, you can download it here. It's free, short, and probably the most complete thing you will read about anti-gay propaganda, at least until those with more power in the lgbt community do what they need to do and address the issue head on.

 Photo: NYC church says to 'stone homos' - This just in. Pastor James Manning has lost his damn mind.

 Guinness And Heineken Drop Sponsorships Of Anti-LGBT St. Patrick’s Day Parade - AWFUL situation. By the way, did any of you know that my hometown of Columbia, SC never has that problem of folks attempting to keep lgbts from participating. Heck, the organizers of the parade look forward to our full participation, float and all.

 'Wendy Williams Show' Hosts Transphobic Panel About Transgender Athlete Chloie Jonsson - So much, so much, so much work to do.  

GOP Lawmaker Thinks Businesses Ought To Be Able To Deny Service To Black People - What the "religious liberty" argument can ultimately cause. And this lawmaker's assessment is inaccurate. Someone needs to be schooled on segregation.

Is there anyway to donate to these universities to pick up the funding?
