Gay Marriage Scaremongering Is The Most Hilarious Campaign Ad Of The 2012 Election

I thought the very intense lady who claims she "survived" an abortion, despite the fact that logic makes no sense, was the most guffaw-inducing campaign ad of the 2012 election. Wrong! It's this anti-gay marriage scaremongering ad about how President Obama is "forcing" gay marriage on Americans, which is seemingly targeted at your…

Hitched: On Love, Politics & Bigotry

The Democratic Party is set to officially incorporate a pro-gay marriage stance into its 2012 convention platform after a 15-member draft committee approved the new pro-marriage equality language over the weekend.

Minnesota Church Ladies Fight For Marriage Equality

The suburbs of Minneapolis are a land of quiet cul-de-sacs, hot dish potlucks, and mostly conservative politics, but in light of a new amendment that seeks to add a gay marriage ban to the Minnesota constitution, these neighborhoods have become something a bit more unexpected: a sea of rainbow flags. And who's leading the charge?

Jay-Z Supports Gay Marriage, Says Obama’s Endorsement Was “The Right Thing”

“I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business.

Unwed Mother Bristol Palin Wags Her Finger At Obama Over Gay Marriage

[It] would’ve been helpful for [President Obama] to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.  Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better…

Kirk Cameron Is Even More Self-Righteous And Bigoted Than We Thought

Color me disgusted. I thought I lost all respect for Kirk Cameron back when the newly born-again sitcom star had a big moral hissy fit about his co-star Julie McCullough's past as a Playboy centerfold and got her fired from "Growing Pains." But after the incredibly offensive, self-righteous comments Cameron made to Piers Morgan, I somehow lost even more respect for…
