Throwback Thursday - The Electric Company

I now interrupt the regularly scheduled denunciation of religious right lies with clips of songs from that old 1970s series 'The Electric Company.'

The usual scheduled program of religious right refutations will be back tomorrow morning:




'Anti-gay spokesman implies that potential gay parents lust after babies' and other Thursday midday news briefs

Klingenschmitt: Photo Of Gay Couple With A Baby 'Looks To Me A Little Bit Like Lust' - If the above video gets you mad, then GOOD! It's why I do what I do. We cannot be taken in when the religious right groups and personalities make themselves appear to be innocent and credible. Behind every Tony Perkins is a Gordon Klingenschmitt. And behind every innocuous statement about the "gay lifestyle" and "religious liberty" is tripe like this. Don't get so disgusted that you forget that in the fight for lgbt equality, we have to spotlight the hatred of the other side, no matter how nauseating that hatred is.  

FRC priorities: Pray for marriage inequality, discriminatory photographers, and, oh yeah—the typhoon victims too - If you were praying to God, what would dominate your prayer? Concern for the folks caught up in that awful typhoon in the Philippines or a reverse and defeat pro-lgbt laws like ENDA, and marriage equality. What if you were the Family Research Council? 

REPORT: LGBT Workers Of Color Face Many Barriers In The American Workforce - Something you probably won't see or hear about on African-American networks or news programs. And that's a real shame.  

Daily Caller Publishes Racist, Ableist Op-Ed To Attack Protections For Transgender Students - There is something to offend everyone in this piece.

It's official! Hawaii is a marriage equality state

It's official. Hawaii is now a marriage equality state as of yesterday when Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed the bill into law. And as the video below shows, the final vote in the Senate was contentious. But it should inspire the lgbt community.  Things worth having are worth fighting for, no matter how hard the fight to come may be.
