'Anti-gay pastor denies comments even AFTER they were caught on audio and video' and other Thursday midday news briefs

Editor's note - I am pretty sure that folks have noticed that I haven't blogging as much as I have in the past.  I have been derelict in that department because I have been prepping my booklet, How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America, for a major national award nomination. On Monday, I will mail off the final paperwork. Wish me luck.

I hope you win. You deserve an award for all the work you put into your book. Not just the work but the stomach to read and write so many horrible things these people have said about us over the years. I have passed on your booklet to everyone I know. Many were surprised at the hate and lies our community has had to prove false. Thank you for your dedication to getting the word out.
Good Luck!
