transformation are more finely shaded than simple blue-state, red-state
color coding, according to analysts. The distinctive thinking of
religious New Englander… their view of religion as
private and personal, and their separation of their own beliefs from
politics – has enabled change, said Mark Silk, a professor of religion
in public life at Trinity College in Hartford."

    The Roman Catholic bishop of Maine thinks same-sex marriage is a “dangerous sociological experiment.” Check it out, Rev: Same sex marriage has never killed anyone. The Roman Catholic church has killed and tortured thousands over its history and turned a blind eye to sexual assault against minors by clergy. So which sociological experiment is more dangerous?

    The writer of the “Same-Sex Marriage Debate Fades …” AP article accepted without question Mineau’s contention that the exit of Catholic Charities from the adoption business had something to do with gay marriage. It did not. Even before gay marriage, state law required Catholic Charities to consider gay couples as well as state couples. Indeed, Catholic Charities facilitated adoptions for 13 such gay couples. It was only when the Globe reported these adoptions, that Cardinal Sean O’Malley decided that it was better for these kids to have no parents at all than to have gay parents, and thus ordered Catholic Charities to cease doing adoptions rather than continuing to comply with state law. Gay marriage had nothing to do with this decision; the state anti-discrimination law was in place a decade before gay marriage. Reporters should be more skeptical before repeating this canard as if it were true. Unfortunately, this article ran all over the country and Canada without a correction.

    The 2010 Winter Olympics are in Vancouver-Whistler, in one of the most gay friendly regions in the world. What’s with the gay athlete safe house? In the Olympic Village that has to mean the worry is other athletes.

    Rather than sequestering gay athletes, they should ID and ship out the backwater closet cases and rednecks that they seem worried about. And I mean ship them to all that space we have in the Arctic zone.

    Sad about Steve Gideon. I saw that production of “Marry Me a Little”–it completely worked as a gay piece. Funny, I was just thinking about it a couple weeks ago when the weddings started in Iowa. Given how much the marriage landscape has changed in just a decade, it would be great to see another production authorized and mounted.

    I’ve been thinking this for some time, but now I’m sure: Cher is possessed by the spirit of Mae West – the voice, the stage moves, the delusional refusal to let go of the sex-bomb identity.. I’m not shittin’ you… it’s scary-tastic.

    Gay athletes don’t need a “safe” place.

    The homophobes of the world need to meet and live with Gays and see that they train and work the same way they do. The Olympics are about people from all the cultures of the world meeting and learning about each other. Right?

    Since there are FAR fewer Black athletes at the Winter Olympics than Gays maybe they should be put in a “safe” place aka “cage” where the can be on display for the world’s media to go for “human interest” stories during the games.

    Who thought this shit up, California Equality?
