'NOM distorting Danish study' and other Friday midday news briefs

What NOM Gets Wrong About The New Danish Marriage Study - Before you yawn and proclaim "big deal," remember that the road to lgbt inequality is paved with incidents of the lgbt community being nonchalant when those who oppose us tell lies. 

FRC prays for 'converted' gays - Seems to me that before you pray for someone else's "salvation," you need to first look towards your own.  

Children’s Museum That Discriminated Against Gay Couple Demands Apology For Backlash - I have something to say to you, but it isn't an apology.  

Black Gay Men Positively Out: Many Men, Many Closets (Part 2) - Love, love, LOVE this post!

Marco Rubio's bigotry is the worst kind

Remember the above sound byte from Florida Senator Marco Rubio from a while back? He was whining about being called "bigoted" because he is allegedly "pro- traditional marriage."

 Of course this is how he feels about the ability to fire someone for being gay:

Or adding gays to immigration legislation:

"If this bill has in it something that gives gay couples immigration rights and so forth, it kills the bill. I'm done," Rubio said Thursday during an interview on the Andrea Tantaros Show. "I'm off it, and I've said that repeatedly. I don't think that's going to happen and it shouldn't happen. This is already a difficult enough issue as it is."

Marco Rubio opposes allowing gays to be married. He opposes adding gay couples to comprehensive immigration legislation. And he opposes protecting gays from job discrimination.

My question is just at what point is it okay to entertain the notion that Rubio has a nasty bias against the gay community?

Sen Rubio reminds me of when white racists attempted to push the false narrative that they weren't "anti-black," but "pro-white." 

No matter how noble or unassuming he attempts to make it sound, we are still talking about denying people rights simply because of who they are.

And here I thought that WAS bigotry.
