FRC faults Dems for broken, obstructionist Congress while advocating for broken, obstructionist Congress  »  Good As You
A bipartisan majority in the US Senate passed the Employment NonDiscrimination Act. All credible polling suggests the American public wants Congress to pass this law. Sadly, the obstructionist GOP House, which has made stopping President Obama and Democrats from passing anything, has blocked ENDA and even a vote on the bill. But now check this. In a post where the viciously anti-LGBT Family Research Council encourages John Boehner's House to keep blocking this reasonable law from moving forward, FRC has the nerve to fault Democrats for a "poor policy record": [FRC] Egregious. It's one thing to be both proudly ...

Video: In inclusive ad, AZ Sec. of State hopeful makes discrimination his rival  »  Good As You
It's fascinating to witness the shift in the way Democratic candidates for both state and federal office use their LGBT rights record. In the past, even our strongest allies would maybe give a slight nod to their pro-equality stances, but rarely were they the basis of an ad. And until a few short years ago, you could count on one hand the number of prominent candidates who went after their GOP rivals specifically because of their anti-equality positions. But times have, indeed, changed. And nowadays, Democratic candidates in even purplish red states are going after their GOP rivals for standing ...

Robert Oscar Lopez confirms belief that gay parents are like slave owners  »  Good As You
Just last week, this man was on the bill at a big marriage conference and rally in Utah alongside NOM and other mainstream groups. Here is his guiding belief: If there is one charge that GLAAD and the HRC throw at me tirelessly, again and again, it’s the charge that I compared gay parents to slave owners. Which I did. In many languages. In places where people get it. Based on landmark texts that are sitting there for anybody to reference. So my dear friends at HRC, there is no need to put me on notice. I am guilty of ...

That discriminatory OR baker is really overthinking reason why she's national news  »  Good As You
Fresh from her appearance at the uber anti-gay Values Voter Summit, the Oregon baker who famously violated local nondiscrimination laws when she refused service to a lesbian customer writes the following: [Sweet Cakes] Standard pablum of the anti-gay movement. Whatever. But what Melissa doesn't seem to understand is that none of this applies to the situation that landed her in the news and could leave her with a hefty fine. And in fact, her deep analysis of whether or not she "hates" or simply "disagrees" speaks to the problem itself. As a business owner who set up ...

Video: Values Voter Summit marriage panel was particularly boring, bad, ineffective this year  »  Good As You
It has taken me three days to even post the video, which should tell you something. From the clumsy moderating of a man who has openly called for gay people to be "exported" to the self-victimization of business owners who believe fair nondiscrimination laws should not apply to them, this year's big Values Voter Summit marriage panel was particularly terrible. And I don't mean "terrible" in terms of nasty rhetoric or demonizing talking points. I mean it was just a waste of everyone's time. But here's the clip for anyone who wishes to waster their own: ...

Conservative Catholic professor: Gay activists like segregationists in 'single-minded heedlessness'  »  Good As You
In a far-less-intellectual-than-he-thinks-it-is essay for the very anti-gay Public Discourse (edited by the very anti-gay Ryan Anderson), Providence College professor Anthony Esolen (a Catholic conservative, of course) makes a long-winded case that arguments in favor of slavery and segregation do not apply to opponents of marriage equality but do "characterize some of our opponents in the debate." While he does allow that there is difference in terms of odium, he insists that those of us who believe our tax-paying dollars entitle us to equal marriage rights under civil law are just like those who sought separate ...

Stop claiming Biden, Obama, Clinton, et al. supported marriage amendments—they did not.  »  Good As You
This comes from an Op-Ed that anti-gay activists Ryan Anderson and Edwin Meese managed to place in the Washington Post: This month, in a widely celebrated opinion written by Judge Richard Posner, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit declared that it had “no reason to think [the governments of Indiana and Wisconsin] have a ‘reasonable basis’ for forbidding same-sex marriage.” This is remarkable. According to this court, the millions of citizens who passed marriage amendments in more than 30 states were all bigots acting on no reasonable basis when they supported marriage as the union of a man and ...

Audio: Peter LaBarbera attempts to deny 'hate' by repeating his extremely hateful quote  »  Good As You
When the professional anti-LGBT activists attempt to argue against a "hate" charge, they typically focus on milder parts of their work life so that they can distract the casual observer with more loving acts and phrases rather than some of their worst hits. But this attempt by longtime activist Peter LaBarbera is just plain funny in its attempt to sidestep the "hate" claim by citing one of the most hateful dismissals of gay-headed families imaginable: In this quote, Peter is saying that people like me and families like mine are damaging our beloved children. He is suggesting that my ...

AFA's Fischer links 'raping puppy' headline to sexual orientation, 'born this way' arguments  »  Good As You
The link within his tweet points to this headline: [shar.es/1ayXEe] The tweet itself, which is a clear attempt by the rabidly anti-gay American Family Association senior analyst to like bestiality to homosexuality, reads like so: [AFA's Fischer] Because that's what people like Fischer do, and increasingly so. They are on a quest to diminish the "born this way" argument and the very idea of homosexuality as a sexual orientation by positioning it as a mantle onto which any and everyone could theoretically cling. The more ludicrous the example, the better, in their eyes. They want you to believe that ...

Duggars promote discriminatory bakers, improper pluralization  »  Good As You
Aaron and Melissa Klein are the proprietors of the now-closed Sweet Cakes by Melissa, the Oregon bakery that caught national attention for unlawfully denying a lesbian couple who sought their business. The Kleins have admitted that they discriminated because they believe homosexuality is a sin, and they have owned up to the fact that they turned away other gay customers before they were finally called out for doing so. They also recently baked cakes for a very fringe "ex-gay" organization, adding even more insight into their deeper agenda (hint: it's not just about marriage). But they are apparently ...

Photos: Scientifically-discredited, deeply offensive junk science presented as truth as #VVS14  »  Good As You
The Family Research Council's Values Voter Summit is probably the most anti-LGBT political conference on the calendar. That is not news. Everyone who knows politics knows how exceedingly hostile this annual conference is; anyone who suggests otherwise is being willfully disingenuous. Despite its ability to keep pulling in mainstream conservative figures, VVS is an event that considers the mission of happy, accepted, protected gay people to be its antithesis. This is why, year after year, you will find all kinds of "ex-gay" propaganda on hand, right alongside the Republican politicians who hope to be your next president: [PRA] [Elise ...

E.W. Jackson will never accept truth of marriage equality; reality remains blissfully independent of his blessing  »  Good As You
Speaking at the annual event that most ably drains moderate support from the Republican party, the Family Research Council's Values Voter Summit, one E.W. Jackson, the GOP's most recent nominee for Lieutenant Governor of the state of Virginia and man who has proudly insisted there's a direct connection between pedophilia and homosexuality, rallied the crowd by demanding that marriages between two men or two women will never be true. Here's the pertinent part, via RightWingWatch: "The fact of the matter is they can call a union other than one man and one woman by any name they choose," ...
