'Tony Perkins angry at Right Wing Watch but fails to refute accusations' & other Friday midday news briefs

Tony Perkins
Tony Perkins is denying he calls for pro-equality judges to be impeached; he's lying and here's empirical proof - "Please proceed, Mr. Perkins." Poor Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. He thinks he has proof that Right Wing Watch distorted his words when it accused him of calling for SCOTUS judges to be impeached. And he continues to figuratively dig his own grave by offering said proof. 

Airbnb Removes Texas Property Listing After Owner Reportedly Rejects Gay Couple - A dimension of the "religious liberty" argument the anti-gay right haven't thought of. They claim that business should have the right to not serve gay couples. Fine, but what if nationwide consortiums and groups designed to steer people to hotels, inns, restaurants, etc decide that they don't want to include you in their guides because of your discriminatory tactics. These things cuts both ways, don't they. Of course businesses shut out of these consortiums and groups can form their own so-called "Christian-friendly" groups. But being widely known as a part of group of businesses coming together because they refuse to serve gays is a stigma sure to backfire. Mercy, I just LOVE AMERICA!!

 Alan Keyes: Gay Marriage Ruling A 'Just Cause For War' - Alan Keyes is easily one of the most pathetic African-American men in the world (yeah, I said it.) He supposedly has all of this intelligence but I wonder if he can point to at least ONE concrete thing he has done with his intelligence to make the world a better place. He depresses the heck out me.  

24 Heartbreaking Struggles From The Transgender Community - This needs to be read and spread. I don't think of the transgender community as victims, but there is nothing wrong with getting REAL about the ignorance one has to deal with.

Video shows anticipation, tension of crowds outside Supreme Court

 As seen by this video, the scene Tuesday outside SCOTUS was a mixture of tension and anticipation, but very peaceful while the justices insides heard oral arguments regarding marriage equality.
