'Anti-gay right angry at T.D. Jakes' & other Tue. midday news briefs

T.D. Jakes
Editor's note - Tomorrow morning, I will be posting some exciting news about my booklet, How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America.  Because of the new fight over lgbt equality vs. so-called religious liberty, there has been a huge spike in readership. Look for the press release!

Religious Right Freaks Out About TD Jakes Comments on Gay Rights, Church-State Separation - This is rich! Bishop T.D. Jakes says that it is possible that the black church and the lgbt community can co-exist as well as other comments on the separation of church and state and the self-appointed right-wing Christian moral squad has come after him screaming "apostasy!" It could be worse. At any other time in world history, these folks would have been screaming "heresy" and already had Jakes fitted for the stake they would use to burn him.  This is not to defend Jakes, but rather to point out the hypocrisy of those who claim that we lgbts are attempting to force "our way of life" on other Americans.

 Michael Sam, the First Openly Gay NFL Player, Leaves Football - Only good thoughts flowing from me to Michael Sam. We owe him a debt of gratitude for his bravery because it's not easy being a pioneer. I hope he gets his stuff together and returns to the sport he loves.

 Republican National Committee Endorses Anti-Gay Discrimination - And we are surprised because . . .? A fight is on and it's going to take more than shouting in the streets and calling people vulgar names on Facebook. AND I just LOVE a good fight!  

Church Kicks Out LGBT Catholic Groups During Papal Visit - Ain't that a . . .
What It Is Like Having an LGBT Parent: Let's Get the Facts Straight - Wonderful blog post by a young lady defending her father!
