You're making a statement that you can walk away from any time it becomes too difficult.
It is well beyond time that the lgbt community recognize and call out this ridiculous Kim Davis drama for what it is - merely a sideshow to cover up the fact that the overall case against marriage equality was nothing more than a pitiful delusion.
I don't smile any more, however, since my piece is now used in US Courts.
The Mormon Church wants laws on the books that would allow a Mormon apartment building owner who doesn't want to rent a unit to a gay couple, the "religious freedom" not to do so. Or a Mormon business owner the right to fire a lesbian worker simply because of whom she is, not because of the quality of her work.
One of their goals was to encourage the two Christian communities to overcome their historical suspicions and doctrinal differences
No, it's really not been a difficult time for me personally. I went into this fight, in good conscience, because I believed
This year at CPAC there was no panel focused on the evils of gay marriage. NOM did have a small table in the basement of the hotel with the other exhibitors, though nothing as grand as the massive, expensive booths and tents of the gun-rights groups or the anti-tax activists.
I stepped down from NOM's board now two years ago, so you should direct this to NOM. [Ed note: NOM did not respond to request
In saying "I have never been a right-winger" in the same interview in which he's criticizing the church for being too "obsessed" with gay marriage and abortion, Francis is hitting at those Catholic leaders who use gay rights and abortion to wield political power, putting them on notice.
Although the religious right is a determined group, at some point they must show actual human beings who succeeded through "self-determination" at becoming heterosexual. Until then, they might as well be defending the right of a goat to become a unicorn.
In 2007 and 2008, its first two years of existence, NOM never bothered to file any tax returns with the IRS. Each subsequent year, NOM has either been late or filed at least two extensions on its tax returns. This is illegal if you are a 501(c)(3) or a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization like NOM.
It certainly was a significant milestone. I actually think it will help us at the Supreme Court this year, but all in all
The Republican Party used to be the party of civil rights. This is the GOP that we long for, a party that welcomes everyone, grows the economy, balances the budget, leads on civil rights and provides for those who are not able to care for themselves.
With federal court after federal court ruling the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional in recent days, and with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals this week reaffirming its ruling that Prop 8 is unconstitutional, do gay marriage foes see the walls closing in on them?
Gallagher thought the president's announcement yesterday could help marriage equality opponents -- including Mitt Romney
Truth4Time, Secret Religious Right Facebook Group, Included NOM Co-Founder, Fox News Pundit And More
The members he named include: the National Organization for Marriage co-founder, Maggie Gallagher, and the group’s president
The National Organization for Marriage has been steadily attempting to blunt the charges that it is trying to drive a wedge between the black and gay communities on the subject of marriage equality.
Instead of working to bring Americans together, the goal of NOM is to sow the seeds of mistrust and tear different groups apart. Instead of harmony, they promote acrimony. Forget the great American melting pot; NOM simply stirs the pot of bitterness and division.
