JohnRobertsRuling 1NewsIcon Richard Socarides wonders how Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will vote in gay marriage cases: "Fundamentally, we see that Roberts thinks of himself not just as another Justice of the Court but as its Chief Justice and, as such, as the primary keeper of its legacy. He is fifty-seven, and could serve on the Court for another twenty years or more. In the context of public opinion on gay rights and same-sex marriage, twenty years is a very long time."

  5. Bea Arthur had a high sence of dignity. She also had a perfect timing for one liners. What a great lady!

  7. Scarlett? Sorry, my favorite female "Avenger" will always be Diana Rigg as Mrs. Peel--well worth 20 mil, if you ask me! (Not that anybody did...)

  8. Re Victoria Jackson: this talented young lady has been right about so many things I'm sure she's right about the Pentagon, Pride and Armageddon.

  9. "The Newsroom" is yet another dud from HBO, which just seems to have lost its touch. And to think that, at one time, Oz, The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and Six Feet Under were all on at the same time.

    Too bad.

  10. Thank you Bea Arthur for not only speaking out for gay rights but also for giving so much money in you will.

    I get so tired of celebrities SAYING they support us but not actually doing anything for us (Beyonce, Kathy Griffin, Jay-Z, Kanye West etc, etc).

    ACTIONS speak louder than WORDS. Bea Arthur delivered for us. I will miss her.

  13. Does anyone REALLY care about Tom Cruise's life ? He is so boring. His beliefs are crazy, he's just a lazy, spoiled, over paid, over privileged rich guy with too much time on his hands.

    Let's not keep giving him free publicity - especially when he is anti gay !

    Posted by: Icebloo | Jul 9, 2012 7:01:17 PM

  14. Adam Lambert needs to keep away from American Idol. It's a sinking ship.

    Posted by: Icebloo | Jul 9, 2012 7:02:43 PM

  15. Hey UFFDA, if you are reading this thread, see what I mean? The other day I told you that if a woman had done what Bill Gates and his colleague at Microsoft did, they would be slobbering all over her, instead of being critical the way they were of those two men.......and here you have evidence of it.

    Trust me, it is all part of a pattern.

  16. Did anyone else notice that THE NEWSROOM messed up the graphics in their 2010 election coverage episode?

    For FL Senate, they displayed Rubio with an (R) and Crist with a (D).
    Charlie Crist actually ran as an Independent. Kendrick Meek was the Democratic nominee.

    For a show that is critical of cable news networks, they sure aren't worried about their own accuracy.

  17. Who is Jeremy Renner?

    Posted by: anon | Jul 9, 2012 7:34:21 PM

  18. Nowhere in that article did it mention Jeremy Renner. You based your blurb on anonymous comments below the article. Bad jorno, bad.

  19. Bea Arthur...a TRUE pioneer for gay rights and the gay community! THANK YOU BEA!

  20. Bea helped our gay youth. That means so much to me. The gay youth kicked out of their homes left to die by disgusting homophobic hetero parents. Thanks Bea for being a friend

  21. "equality for every American" ?

    From a comment in HuffPo Gay Voice:

    "In the 1990's, Barney Frank’s efforts to deregulate Fannie Mae may have been a serious conflict of interest because his lover, Herb Moses, was an executive for Fannie Mae at the time Frank's was on the House Banking Committee, which had jurisdiction over Fannie Mae.

    Thanks for helping bring about the crash of the economy Barney... you live happily ever after while the rest of the country suffers." Some bankers were laughing all the way while whole world was aflame and other ppl are becoming homeless even as we r talking...

    Yep, with all that kickback, I could find a hubby who could be my son too! Money is abig aphrodisiac!!!

  22. Was Socarides on drugs when he wrote that? Maybe Roberts thinks of himself as Chief Justice instead of another justice because he is Chief Justice.

  25. The article on Renner in the new Esquire constantly refers to his "friend" who shares living quarters with him and seems to be a constant presence in his life. It's easy to draw conclusions.
