Rumer Willis to play a lesbian on 90210: "This isn't a fling. We're coming at this [relationship] from a genuine place and not going, 'Let's do a titillating story that will grab some promotion.'

Indiewire looks at this year's gay Oscar hopes: "This year could also find as many as three best pictures helmed by gay
men. In addition to 'A Single Man,' there’s Rob Marshall’s 'Nine,' and
Lee Daniels’ 'Precious: Based on the novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire,' the
latter of which also features a major gay character.  What I think is
really interesting here – and what speaks volumes to social systems in
behind-the-scenes Hollywood – is Lee Daniels’s prospective nomination. 
If he gets nominated for best director, it would be much more
monumental because he is African-American than it would be because he
is openly gay."

They don’t comport with natural law. I happen to think that it
represents (to put it politely; I need my thesaurus to be polite)
behavior that is not healthy to an individual and in aggregate is not
healthy to society."

Esera Tuaolo on Larry Johnson's "faggot" slur: "What is also crippling to an athlete is hearing slurs like that thrown

    Could AG Ken Cuccinelli have his head further up his ass? What does the statement “In a natural law based country” even mean? We live in the United States of America asshole. Is Virginia that backwards that they think this way?

  2. Angela says

    Ken Cuccinelli is not the attorney general of Virginia. He is a state senator running for the AG’s office, which God willing, he will lose. And he is an ass.

  3. Paul R says

    I realize that he’s not AG, but the mere fact that Cuccinelli is the candidate for office reminds why I’m so grateful to have moved away from Virginia…a state that seems to revel in turning back in time despite its moderate northern half. There need to be three Virginias, or the southern half should merge with West VA and they can live happily ever after on their crippled tax base and love of hatred.

    As that article says: “To put it politely, Cuccinelli’s election would bring embarrassment to Virginia, instability to the state’s law firm and untold harm to the long list of people who don’t fit his personal definition of morality.” But that won’t stand in the way of plenty of VA voters.

  4. TANK says

    Natural law’s code for divine dictator theory for these morons. It applies to their conception of god, and its commands– which exists outside of nature (outside of spacetime). It’s political propaganda meant to tie their understanding of divine threat theory to the word ‘nature,’ and reveals their moral relativism and ineptitude. Morons like this are just as quick to say “just because it’s found in nature, doesn’t mean it’s okay,” as they are to say “it’s not found in nature, therefore it’s not okay…” But they don’t have an understanding of “nature” (or right and wrong) to predicate it on…as they usually deny biological evolution, and thereby biology in total, too. They stopped speaking intelligently about nature and specifically, human nature since Darwin. I wouldn’t be surprised if this douchedrizzle’s a birther, too.

  5. Gary says

    Natural Law is the notion (first formulated by the ancient Stoics), that reason alone is sufficient to lead man to do good, and avoid evil, without recourse to superstition or revealed religion. Because of the central role played by Natural Law in the development of Enlightenment ideals like “unalienable Rights” bestowed by “Nature’s God”, as stated in the Declaration of Independence, it is accurate to say that we live in a country founded upon Natural Law.

    The term has been slyly corrupted by ‘culture warriors’ like Cuccinelli to mean moral laws imposed by religion. They achieve this crafty misconstruction by assuming that mention of “Nature’s God” in our founding document proves America is a “Christian country” despite the unequivocal meaning of Article VI, Section 3 of the Constitution, and Article I of the Bill of Rights. The logical leap is, to say the least, unfounded, but repeated ad nauseam to bolster their crusade against reason, justice, and the natural order.

    And, yes, Virginia is just that backward – and perverted.

  6. PiercedStrong says

    The Christwire article on the Golden Girls is clearly, clearly satire. I don’t know gay people don’t get it. It’s sad so many seem to have lost their sense of humor!

  7. David T says

    Could Cuccinelli be more of a dumb ass? People like him spout off shit like this with no support other than that ridiculous book of fables called the Bible. I lead a quite healthy life, thank you very much. We raise kids, dress you and your wives, practice medicine and law, nurse hospital patients, volunteer, organize food drives, write books, and serve in the military to defend your right to be an asshole.

    Now shut the hell up.
