Anderson Cooper last night chatted with a woman who attends the congregation of Charles Worley, the shockingly anti-gay reverend who thinks the government should create concentration camps for LGBT people.
The woman, Stacey Pritchard, is all about Worley's plan, but she can't quite explain why other alleged sinners don't deserve to be detained, nor does she seem to have a complete understanding of where gay babies come from... Biology is hard, and Anderson is confused

New York-based filmmaker Adam Goldman recently unveiled the first installment of The Outs, a six-part web series about a gay man and his friends trying to find work, happiness and, yes, sex here in the Big Apple.
I just checked out the first episode of the Kickstarter-funded series per a friend's recommendation and am already hooked. I think you will be, too. I've included the first episode AFTER THE JUMP. You can learn more about Mr. G and the series at The Outs' website.

We knew it was only a matter of time: One Million Moms, the right wing group who boycotted J.C. Penney for hiring Ellen DeGeneres, is now trying to rally its anti-gay army against Marvel and DC Comics for including gay characters in their fictional universes.
With regard to Marvel and the upcoming gay nuptials of Northstar, OMM gripes claims that gay men are using superheroes as a proxy to "brainwash" impressionable youth:
Children desire to be just like superheroes. Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, "I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?"
This is ridiculous! Why do adult gay men need comic superheroes as role models?
They don't, but do want to indoctrate [sic] impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light. These companies are heavily influencing our youth by using children's superheroes to desensitize and brainwash them in thinking that a gay lifestyle choice is normal and desirable.
And as for DC, which announced this week that one of their major characters will soon come out, OMM also says that the company is "using superheroes to confuse them on this topic to raise questions and awareness of an alternative lifestyle choice."
Naturally the group is calling on its followers to flood Marvel and DC with hate mail. Something tells me that the companies, both of which are receiving heaps of publicity and praise for their new stories, are going to throw OMM's screeds directly in the trash.

Greg Sargent on news that more African-Americans support gay marriage following President Obama's endorsement: "It’s not exactly that Obama influenced black opinions...

Anti-gay rabble-rouser Bryan Fischer does not appreciate Richard Grenell and others claiming that LGBT equality is a conservative value: "[Homosexuality] It is a libertarian value, and a liberal value, but it is not a conservative one... Conservatism encourages moral restraint and self-control. Libertarianism, on the other hand, encourages the 'If it feels good, do it' lunacy of the 70s. These are conflicting and incompatible views of moral responsibility."
