Weekly Standard defends military gay ban: "Another way to put this is to say that honor, which is by the testimony of soldiers throughout the ages of the essence of military service, includes the honor of being known for heterosexuality, and that, for most heterosexual males, shame attends a reputation as much for homosexuality as for weakness or cowardice."

Paul Hogarth: Defeating Question 1 in Maine about mobilizing the base. "If every Mainer votes in the upcoming election, Question One will lose – and conservatives who’ve won on 'gay marriage' in every state where it has been on the ballot will suffer a humiliating defeat. But this is an off-year election, and young people who strongly support marriage equality are much less likely to turn out. And while voters in liberal Portland are with us, I have gotten this apathetic shrug from people – saying it shouldn’t even be on the ballot."

Trial starts for Alabama judge accused of sex-for-leniency trades: "The respected circuit judge once was the Democratic Party's choice to be the first black federal judge in south Alabama. Then his career collapsed under allegations that he brought inmates to his office and spanked them with a paddle. Later, an indictment accused him of sexually abusing male inmates in exchange for leniency. The trial on charges of sodomy, kidnapping, sex abuse, extortion, assault and ethics violations is set to start Monday."

  2. A friend of mine who loathes Barrowman with a visceral hatred saw La Cage the other day and came back raving about how brilliant Barrowman was. There was no rain of frogs or blood or anything that night, nor was there a blue moon and I must have missed any flying pigs. So I'm prepared to believe that Barrowman must have been fantastic because my friend doesn't like him to an horrendously bigotted extent.

  3. Barrowman looks great in that photo. He kinda' reminds of a red-headed that one photo.

    Sorry about the Judge doing the kinky stuff with male prisoners in exchange for leniency. He was a Democrat and probably liberal on gay rights issues (federal appointees are different than state offcials...I think). If he wasn't liberal on gay civil rights...well, tough, baby, you're in some deep shit now.

  6. That judge is still innocent until proven guilty, though, to be fair.

  7. Interesting how the police department were observing the eagle for months trying to catch them on sex charges, yet the night they supposedly caught them, they chose to be nice and no arrest anyone. RIIIIIGHT.

    The Sunday Paper article is total BS and doesnt prove anything. Their reasoning is like saying that since the Fort Worth PD hadnt raided gay bars every week for the past two years, thats proof it wasnt targeted. WTF kind of methodology is that? The Atlanta gay bar was raided, targeted, etc. Just because it was the first time doesnt mean it wasnt targeted. I cant believe towleroad posted this BS.

    I have been in many straight bar raids at my college town of Statesboro. Ive seen a lot of bar raids and they never bring the dogs, they dont force everyone to lay face down in broken glass, and they dont harrass everyone and make fun of their cultural attributes. GET IT TOGETHER TR.
