QUEER QUOTE: Mormon Church Expresses Grudging Support For LGBT Non-Discrimination  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Today's Queer Quote comes from an unlikely source, Elder Dallin Oaks of the Mormon Church, discussing the Church of Latter-Day Saints new position in support of LGBT non-discrimination, with the HUGE caveat that it allow exemptions for "religious beliefs." I have previously blogged about several Utah politicians' willful ignorance of civil rights law (namely Gov. Gary Hebert and Dallin Oaks himself) and this latest move by the Church reflects this misapprehension."We call on local, state and the federal government to serve all of their people by passing legislation that protects vital ...

GODLESS WEDNESDAY: New Greek PM Is Left-Wing And Unabashed Atheist!  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
The new Prime Minister is Alexis Tsipras. In addition to being the youngest Greek Prime Minister in over 150 years at age 40, he is also the very first Prime Minister to be sworn in using a non-religious oath.It's hard to overstate what a rupture this marks with the ceremonial culture of Greece. For as long as anybody can remember, every senior office-holder, from socialists to right-wing dictators, has assumed the post with a ritual involving Bibles, crosses and often holy water, sprinkled about with a sprig of basil. The opening words of the Greek constitution recall the theological formulas of the early church which predate by the Hellenic ...

QUEER QUOTE: Alabama LGBT Politician Threatens Hypocritical Legislators With Outing  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Patricia Todd has for a longtime been the only openly LGBT elected official in the Alabama state legislature. With a federal judge striking down Alabama's state constitutional ban on marriage equality last week (and on Sunday issuing a 14-day stay on her decision from going into effect to allow the state to fruitlessly appeal to the 11th Circuit) a number of conservative politicians in her state have been spouting a lot of nonsense about "family values" and "defending the sanctity of marriage."Representative Todd has had enough hypocrisy from politicians opposing marriage equality in the ...

EYE CANDY: Pierre Abena  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Pierre Abena is beautiful, multiracial model of Italian and Cameroonian descent from Paris who now lives in Los Angeles.

QUEER QUOTE: Obama Hopes Supreme Court Makes "Right Decision" In Marriage Case  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
President Barack Obama gave an interview with YouTube celebrity GloZell Green where he expressed support for a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court that will legalize marriage equality throughout the country.What he actually said is today's Queer Quote:My hope is that they go ahead and recognize what I think the majority of people in America now recognize, which is two people who love each other and are treating each other with respect, and aren’t bothering anybody else, why would the law treat them differently?

Madison Keys has long been touted as the next big thing in women's tennis from America. Keys is a multiracial 19-year-old with a huge serve and big groundstrokes on both sides. She faced 2-time major champion Petra Kvitova in the 3rd round of the 2015 Australian Open and surprised many by eliminating the #4 seed in straight sets, 6-4 7-5, to reach her first second week in a major.It was a very good day for American women, with both Williams sisters coming back to win 3-set matches. The bigger surprise was the 4-6 7-6(3) 6-1 win by Venus Williams over pint-size ...
