'Religious right making ugly war on transgender community' & other Thur. midday news briefs


And Then They Came for Transgender People - My friend Brynn Tannehill breaks it down. What happened in South Dakota is a part of a deliberate plan of anti-gay groups and it's only the beginning of something awful. It's a major reason why I have said for over nine years that the lgbt community AND our allies must do more to focus on these groups and stop letting them dictate the terms of the conversation. No fear, brothers and sisters. This is a war, but of rhetoric and position. If you ain't in the game, go home.

'White-Hot Fury': Anti-Gay Hate Groups on Rise in Wake of Same-Sex Marriage Ruling - The Southern Poverty Law Center just added seven more to its list of anti-gay hate groups. And believe me, they ALL deserve it.  

Texas Conservative Group Makes National Hate Org List - Such as THIS group, and it is a DOOZY!  

Relieved that Scalia can no longer judge us - Respecting the dead and lying about the dead are different things. Scalia had no business on the Supreme Court. And that's solely MY opinion.  

Cruz: 'Disastrous' Marriage Equality Ruling Led To 'Persecution' That's 'Unprecedented' - That howling I keep hearing are the victims of actual persecution. The ones who were tortured, burned at the stake, beaten, and generally executed. And they are all saying, "Is this @!^% kidding?!!" Don't say this man won't be president until AFTER the election is over. Until then, we got work to do.
