Misguided Gay Marriage Arguments?

March 27, 2013

Perhaps gay rights activists in this country are aiming too high.  Rather than create massive grassroots campaigns impacting local and state law, they’ve gone right to the top.  Listening to Andrew Wilkow this afternoon, he made an interesting argument about the gay marriage debate:  that the typical arguments in support of gay marriage don’t really [...]

SCOTUS to Hear Arguments on Gay Marriage

March 26, 2013

Today the Supreme Court will hear the first of two cases dealing with gay marriage — the first being about California’s Proposition 8, the second about the constitutionality of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Mayor Menino’s Chick-Fil-A Hypocrisy

July 29, 2012

Mark Steyn pointed out a glaring inconsistency with Boston Mayor Menino’s position on groups supporting gay marriage in his town. Stepping back for a moment, remember that Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said, “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.  We are a family-owned business, a family-led [...]

Gay Superhero to Wed Next Month

May 22, 2012

DC Comics’ Northstar is going to marry his long-time boyfriend in New York City in the June 20th release of “Astonishing X-Men.”  Northstar’s alter-ego happens to be Canadian, if that means anything. The comic universe has often been in the biz of latching onto identity politics and going with stories of tragically misunderstood people with [...]

Obama Endorses Gay Marriage

May 9, 2012

One day after the people of North Carolina adopted a ban on gay marriage, President Obama goes on the record supporting it (by the way, Charlotte happens to be where the Democratic National Convention is being held this summer… oops, slight oversight). Of course, this is ultimately where Obama wanted to go on the issue [...]

Christie to Veto Gay Marriage Bill

February 16, 2012

The NJ State legislature has passed a bill today which would legalize gay marriage in the Garden State.  However, Governor Christie has vowed to veto the measure on two grounds:  first, he’s opposed to the idea since NJ already has a civil union law which is effectively the same thing;  and also that Christie wants [...]

Proposition 8 Struck Down by Judge

August 5, 2010

Proposition 8 in California was a ballot initiative in 2008 which defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman.  It passed with 52% of the vote and got about 7 million Californians to vote for it.  Yesterday, in a 136-page decision, a District Judge Vaughn Walker believed that the proposition violated both [...]

Rick Warren Saddling-Up to Pray at Inaugural

December 18, 2008

From time to time Obama will try to mess with the political scene to grow his base.  He knows that part of this will entail treading on conservative grounds once in a while — remember that The One is going to probably ask for some crazy “executive powers” in order to meet the “economic crisis” so it’s good for him [...]

A Gay Wedding Between Two Priests

June 16, 2008

The Anglican Church is in crisis.  Britons are moving away from it in droves, many of whom are dropping religion altogether or becoming Roman Catholics, like former British Prime Minister Tony Blair (I bet he has private health insurance too!). The recent dilemma wreaking havoc over the Anglican Church is what to do about homosexuals.  Many [...]

Gay Marriage in California

May 15, 2008

In a blatant example of judicial activism, the California Supreme Court today voted 4-3 to overturn the will of the people in order to impose gay marriage on the Golden State.  If McCain nor Congressional Republicans won’t jazz up the conservative base, this should!  Marriage issues, cultural issues, judicial activism, court appointments, etc. are all [...]
