Maggie Gallagher receives 'Anita Bryant' Bigotry Award and other Friday midday news briefs

NOM's Gallagher testifies at House 'Defending Marriage' hearing; given 'Bigotry Award' by GetEQUAL - And personally, I can't think of a more deserving recipient.

Maggie's #DOMA testimony: We got CSPAN Maggie, not Christian radio Maggie
- Now if you want to know WHY Gallagher is deserving, check out this piece from Jeremy Hooper. Compare the ducking and dodging written testimony to the committee to what she has said on "Christian" radio. Don't get me wrong. There are only really two things I dislike about Gallagher - her face.

On Anti-Bullying 'Day of Silence,' the Religious Right Cheers on the Bullies - An excellent piece by People for the American Way President Michael B. Keegan.

"Ex-Gay" Activists Want To Crash The Day Of Silence - And I am happy to report that they have been unsuccessful. Now the Day of Silence, on the other hand, so far has been massively successful today.

Gay ex-NBA player Amaechi: What Kobe said just as bad as ‘the N-word’ - Yes I specifically sidestepped the Kobe Bryant controversy because the entire black vs. gay thing wearies the hell out of me (especially in this situation when it doesn't even need to be pulled out. What Bryant said was ugly, period). I will just let John Amaechi's words speak for themselves

California Senate Passes Bill Requiring Teaching of Gay History in Public Schools
- And what, pray tell, is wrong with this? Our lgbt children need to know their history. And so do heterosexual students. It has NOTHING to do with sexual intercourse.

I just faxed off a short thank you letter to Congressman Nadler:

Dear Congressman Nadler,

I wanted to thank you for your efforts at this morning's Judiciary Committee hearing. I also wanted to inform you that the Southern Poverty Law Center has just named the National Organization for Marriage a bona fide hate group akin to the Ku Klux Klan ( and I wanted you to know this so you can put the information into the Congressional Record with any of your comments on the proceedings.

Thanks again
