Franklin Graham's fawning praise of Trump is simply embarrassing

The speed from which Franklin Graham pivoted from "Stop picking on Donald Trump. We never said he was perfect." to "Oh my God! Isn't Donald Trump so dreamy! We need to pray for him!" is embarrassing. Especially when one considers that had not the media pressed him and other evangelicals on the matter, they probably wouldn't have mentioned Trump's many moral lapses. As the investigations into how Russia helped the Trump campaign continues, I have a feeling that Graham will be regretting his kiss-ass behavior in support of Trump.

And I bet that Graham never asked that Obama be prayed while HE was president. Yet more proof that Trump's relationship with Graham and company is merely about acquisition.

(Editor's note - I offer a pre-apology just in case it is proven that Graham did in fact ask for Obama to be prayed for.)

'Anti-LGBTQ group already talking about repealing marriage equality' & other Wed midday news briefs

NOM: Supreme Court Is ‘One Retirement Away’ From Ending Marriage Equality - NOM's pipe dream isn't that much of a pipe dream and it reminds us of the simple fact that besides NOM, there are anti-LGBTQ organizations and hate groups just planning to take away marriage equality, even as you read this. But giving up is not an option. We can fight and defeat this notion. And the first step is in the mid-terms. Y'all need to vote and get as many folks to also vote as you can.

Trump’s State of the Union speech omits mention of LGBTQ rights - Surprise! NOT!

Efforts to help LGBT Puerto Ricans after Maria ‘being forgotten’ - We can't let this happen, y'all.

New York School System Holds Its First Summit For LGBTQ Students - New York is a start but we need this in other places too.

The memes from Trump’s first State of the Union address are in and they’re brutal - Damn right. And you KNOW we don't care, either. We are going THERE.
