A $10K PAC donation is exposed in never-before-seen National Organization for Marriage financial documents. The Human Rights Campaign was exclusively able to obtain the private 2008 IRS filing from NOM via a whistleblower. It shows a contribution from an obscure Alabama PAC belonging to Romney, rather than from Mittens himself.

Newt Wife #2: He Asked Me for an Open Marriage so He Could Continue Boinking Callista

By: Thursday January 19, 2012 9:35 am

I wonder what Calista thinks about this? And Newt wants to ensure gays and lesbians don’t have access to civil marriage. The hypocrisy meter just shattered.

By: Thursday January 12, 2012 11:45 am

Talk about a body-blow to all of the Americans — including me and my wife Kate — who flocked to Canada to get married. Stephen Harper’s conservative government has declared all marriages from any countries where there is not marriage equality null-and-void.

Tennis Legend and Ace Bigot Margaret Court Wants a Pass for Her Homophobia

By: Thursday January 5, 2012 7:40 am

The problem bigots have in 2012 is that they don’t like being labeled bigots, so they engage in public contortions to make it look like they are being victimized for opening their pieholes and saying racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic garbage that is ludicrous.

2011 NC Pride: Lonely, Pathetic Fundie Spouts Idiocy, Junk Science

By: Sunday September 25, 2011 1:00 pm

2011 Pride, held in Durham, NC on 9/24/2011, was a festive, albeit rainy affair (toward the end). Given the recent act by the NC state legislature to put a marriage amendment on the ballot, I expected a healthy fundie turnout. I saw only about 10 people tops, however.

NC: Debate Between Reps. Glazier and Stam Exposes Bigotry, Irrationality Behind Marriage Amendment

By: Wednesday September 21, 2011 6:20 pm

Paul “Skip” Stam (R-Apex) passed out two documents to the attendees at UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Law today. In his opening remarks he gleefully referred to the “Act Concerning Marriages (1669)” handout (below) as if it were some holy text representing law in North Carolina. He seems to have forgotten that in 1669, blacks were slaves and they couldn’t even marry one another. That’s a real tradition to uphold.
