Harper Collins out gay marketer Jonathan Burnham hired virulent homophobe Lynn Vincent to ghost write Sarah Palin's new book: "The Palin book, moreover, is clearly being styled as a work of polemic, appealing to the Christianist base, thereby fanning homophobia, and empowering those who would like nothing more than to push gay people back into the closet, out of marriage, out of the military, and out of the workplace. Burnham is now directly party to this effort."

A higher rate would enable clinics to expand operations and care for the growing number of people living with the disease."

  1. "until government education is started in the womb"

    How would that work

  2. "Bishop Raymond Lahey, on the lam for several days after Canadian border guards found child pornography on his laptop, yesterday surrendered to authorities."

    The Vatican released a statement after the arrest announcing that Lahey converted from Roman Catholic to Anyfuckingdenomination Protestant as soon as the child pornography was discovered on his computer. Or was it when he put the photos there in the first place? Or when he got his first chubby from looking at little boys?

  4. Am I the only one who falls into the facile trap of thinking that Sarah Palin LOOKS nuts?

  5. Can more people please write to the AIDS office at the White House (URL above in the story) about concern that the CDC will promote circumcision as a means of trying to stop the AIDS epidemic here at home domestically when in fact circumcision unethically takes away the right of the guy to make his own decision about his important appendage. Not to mention it snips away a lot of erogenous skin. AND the studies in Africa would not apply to the epidemic here--it's totally different among different subgroups. Plus there are flaws in the study.

    What is clear who will benefit is the insurance companies and those "experts" who profit from pushing circumcision. A bad idea all around. And the CDC is considering it when it is the wrong solution totally!

    Please write and join me in writing the Office of AIDS Policy. Thanks everyone!

  7. Once demoralized and defeated, Nevada gays have much to celebrate about this legislative session. Aside from domestic partnerships, less contentious bills were also considered and passed with relatively little fanfare. The state's anti-discrimination laws are now superior to that in neighboring California in some respects. With regards to treatment in hotels and casinos for instance. This is an incredible achievement for a conservative, Mormon founded state.

  8. I have to agree with John. We in Nevada have it good compared to the horror stories I see coming from other states. ALL of our Democratic representatives are fully accesible and welcoming to the LGBT community. They are actually a lot better at supporting the LGBT community than a lot of our Gay "leaders".
