This McDonalds commercial about coming out is EVERYTHING!

This McDonalds commercial from Taiwan featuring a young man coming out to his father nails it completely. In spite of nonsense thrown at lgbts, we are not freaks nor people embroiled in some ridiculous plot. We are just ordinary folks who, in the long run, would love the support of our family because coming out is no joke, so to speak:

This commercial is so good that naturally some folks in Taiwan are complaining about a supposed "sexual agenda."   It's always about sex with these anti-gay types. Geez!

The caliber of homophobia in a Ted Cruz supporter - Reposting this from morning. The big joke of the 2016 presidential election may be that Republicans are fighting so hard against Donald Trump that they are hooking themselves on to an equal or bigger disaster with Ted Cruz. This post is a 2010 conversation I had with Gary Glenn, the present chair of Cruz's Michigan campaign when he defends his call to "outlaw" homosexuality.

The caliber of homophobia in a Ted Cruz supporter

It has been reported that Ted Cruz has made alliances with several religious right and anti-gay figures during his presidential campaign. The latest should be a real attention-getter:

From Right Wing Watch:
As we have noted before, people who hate gays sure do seem to love Ted Cruz, and that trend continues as his presidential campaign continues to rack up support and endorsements from a variety of extremist anti-gay activists. To this ever-growing list we can now add Michigan state lawmaker Gary Glenn, who has been tapped to serve as one of the campaign's state legislative co-chairs. Prior to winning his seat in the state legislature, Glenn served as president of the American Family Association of Michigan, the state arm of the anti-gay hate group the American Family Association, where he promoted a variety of anti-gay positions and even called for the criminalization of homosexuality:

 Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, has added his voice to a growing chorus of American leaders calling for the re-criminalization of homosexuality in the U.S. In an e-mail to Michigan Messenger, here’s how Glenn responded when asked if he supported the criminalization move proposed by the Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg’s comments last week on Hardball: “The short answer to your question is yes, we believe that states should be free to regulate and prohibit behavior that’s a violation of community standards and a proven threat to public health and safety — including, as most of the United States did throughout its history, homosexual behavior.”

Glenn made the statement  in 2010. I know this well because Glenn and I had a "discussion" on my blog - which he initiated - after I posted a story about his statement.  The following is a repost of that discussion and it should give you clue regarding the mentality of religious right supporters of Ted Cruz:
