The best argument against gay marriage ever

Via Dan Savage, I now give you the best argument ever against gay marriage, by David Klinghoffer: Consider this piece from the first century BCE poet Catullus (Carmen 61:134-141), in which the poet addresses himself to a bridegroom on the eve of his nuptials: “You are said to find it…

Ft. Worth police raid gay bar on anniversary of Stonewall

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, and Nancy Goldstein has a good piece up explaining how far gays and lesbians have come since then, and how far they have to go. She cites bans on gay marriage, higher poverty rates, lack of health care, and DADT as…

Your Marriage Will Be Impacted By Marriage

I’m watching Maggie Gallagher on MSNBC arguing that same-sex marriage will impact your marriage because it’s the government defining marriage and that’s bad for marriage. She also wrote this piece on same-sex marriage, beginning with this line: Last week, the Iowa supreme court found a constitutional right to gay marriage,…

National Organization for Marriage’s new tactic: fear-mongering without using the word ‘religion’

These folks have nothing left in the tool box after the Iowa ruling decimated the excuse that religious opposition should govern civil law. So now the folks at the National Organization for Marriage have decided to send out e-blasts and a new video that uses a multi-racial set of actors…

Freepers freak as the Homosexual Agenda scores wins in Vermont and D.C.

Yet another state falls prey to the homosexualists, as the Vermont Legislature voted to override the veto of a marriage equality bill by Gov. Jim Douglas today. Between Iowa, Vermont, and Washington, DC (its Council voted today to recognize same-sex marriages from other states), the Sodomy Squadron is well on…

Iowa Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality

After April 24th, gay and lesbian couples will be able to marry in the heartland. So much for blaming the coastal liberal radical homosexuals for this one. Des Moines Register: The Iowa Supreme Court this morning struck down a 1998 state law that limits marriage to one man and one…

I’d love to put it to bed, but it’s still up and walking around

Pam’s piece below debunking the idea that the anti-gay lobby can be compromised with on gay marriage really got me to thinking, as did Jesse’s post on Lord Saletan trying to find some brilliant compromise on abortion. I’m (shockingly) feeling 90% on Obama, which is much better than I’d hoped…

NYT op-ed on same-sex marriage presents a compromise

Is there any way to compromise on the matter of civil marriage when it comes to the LGBT rights movement and the religious right? David Blankenhorn and Jonathan Rauch think there is and outline it in the op-ed “A Reconciliation on Gay Marriage” in the NYT. They believe we are…

Phantoms battle it out while the real world burns

Nancy Goldstein has a post at Broadsheet about the Obama campaign’s invitation of Gene Robinson—the Episcopal Church’s first gay bishop—to deliver the invocation that starts the festivities, an obvious attempt to signal that Obama really means it when he said that Rick Warren was invited in some spirit of inclusion,…

The Peter’s ‘Ten Reasons to Support Americans For Truth in 2009′

After sharing the hilarious Top Ten Instances of Christian Bashing in America by the "Christian" Anti-Defamation Commission with you earlier in the week, it's only fair that I follow up with friend of your favorite neighborhood “vicious anti-Christian lesbian activist” and “lesbian blog-stremist” Peter LaBarbera's equally unhinged Top 10 list…
