'A mother watches her son become the victim of 'religious liberty' discrimination' & other Wed midday news briefs

How It Feels When Someone Refuses to Make Your Son a Wedding Cake - The mother of the gay couple involved in the "religious liberty" case going to SCOTUS eloquently speaks out on why the case isn't about simply a cake but plain blatant discrimination and how it feels to see her child become a victim of it. One advantage the anti-LGBTQ industry has over us are so-called Christian bakers and florist willing to have their egos stoked and play the martyr. They don't mind doing interviews and appearing on talk shows pretending to be victims because they have allowed themselves to be manipulated by groups who pay the cost of everything for them. The true victims - the people denied services on the basis of sexual orientation - don't have the same luxury. But it does prove that our side aren't willing to exploit folks. After all, these people went in said businesses expecting a service. They didn't ask to be made into nationwide symbols of martyrdom.

Black pastors, conservatives are letting white homophobes exploit them (again) - Speaking of the same situation, my post from last night. It proves that this entire "religious liberty" nonsense is a coordinated campaign by the anti-LGBTQ industry to undermine our equality, again.

GOA to hold its first ever gay pride this month- Sweet! 

The Arizona Senate Race Is About To Be Bonkers - Because of Donald Trump, Arizona senator Jeff Flake will not seek re-election. This puts the LGBTQ community square in the middle of possibly one of the wildest, ugliest Senatorial elections in recent history. To quote the Huffington Post - "The first openly bisexual member of Congress could end up facing off against a Republican whose own party has called her a conspiracy theorist."
