Other hosts fill a long list of Hollywood glitterati, including the director Rob Reiner, the 'Lost' co-creator J. J. Abrams, the 'Sex and the City' creator Darren Star and the actress Vanessa Williams. The Los Angeles reception follows four fund-raising events in New York in the last seven months that drew heavily on supporters of same-sex marriage."

RoadNYT journalist Ralph Blumenthal remembers the first stories about gay rights marches: "But, oh, I was cautioned, it was not the gay march, it was the homosexual march. The homosexual march? I dreaded to write that. Even then it marked me as woefully out of step with the zeitgeist. There was a leaden quality to the phrase, a sniffy retrograde disapproval. No, I objected, they call themselves gays. Gays? Now it was an editor’s turn at consternation. Gay meant happy. Were they happy? No, they were homosexuals."

  6. Robert, you are correct. UGH!

    Andy, please take this homophobe away, there is no pleasure in looking at that now.

  7. Of all the news you posted today Andy the saddest is "Father of gay teen who took his own life ..."

    We never like to think of such things, especially me. I would have no purpose, no happiness in life and fearful I would never stop crying if I were to lose my son or husband. My sympathy goes out to his wife and daughter.

  8. I live 1 block from Mt. Carmel and while I understand their position they have multiple services a day and can survive ONE day out of the year without a 10am service (they can still hold the afternoon services.)

  9. I'm an atheist homo and went to the church article prepared for outrage when I read the following, quoted directly from the article as said by the Rev. Thomas Srenn:

    "Many of our parishioners will be at the parade and some will be in the parade," he said. "The parish reflects all that diversity. It has nothing to do with the theme of the parade. The change of route and the time brought it right in the heart of our sacred time."


    It seems like they're unhappy that nobody will be able to get to church that morning, and it has nothing to do with anything gay.

  10. Kris Humphries is not gay. He's just another straight guy who has sex with men!

  15. This is what is wrong with the Catholic Church, they try to censor reality for those not of their own faith... be it a parade, abortions or even a movie. The Church thinks they are moral roll models, yet look the other way when it concerns scandals in their own back yard, be it Chicago, elsewhere in America, and especially the Vatican.

    They do not own the streets in front of their churches and are tax exempt on their property. Just this week in Chicago, another Catholic property complained that they are now being charged for water bills that were way over 100,000. a year.If it was up to me, I would stop all religions and tax payers from getting any tax exemptions for donations allowed on Federal taxes.
