Past Know Your LGBT History Posts:

'Discredited anti-gay professor complains about treatment by bloggers' and other Friday midday news briefs

Mark Regnerus: 'Ne'er-do-well bloggers' harassed me - We didn't harass him.

Family Group Lies To Churchgoers About Children - And this is why even after a victory, the lgbt community and our allies must stay vigilant. 

 Brian Sims, Pennsylvania Lawmaker, Silenced On DOMA By Colleagues Citing 'God's Law' - As you can see, some folks have lost their damn minds.

  LaBarbera Reacts to DOMA Ruling: 'Craven' Kennedy 'Sold out Almighty God for a Place in the Gay Hall of Fame' - Porno Pete is mad at Justice Kennedy for not using religion in his ruling. BTW what is this Gay Hall of Fame and how does one get in?

This week just keep getting worse for FRC.
