A look back at today's top stories

POLITICS

A wild scene unfolded last night in Rhode Island when around 300 people turned out to address the legislative committee that is reviewing a bill that would potentially grant the state marriage equality. Check out video from the statehouse, including an adorable little boy fighting for his two moms. Our series preparing you for the Supreme Court's hearing on Prop 8 and DOMA continues and this time Ari Waldman tells us if we should prepare for a broad or a narrow ruling

In a move sure to piss off the NRA, President Obama held a news conference today in which he unveiled his plan to reduce gun violence

WINGNUTTERY

An anti-gay church in Seattle has decided to move into a very popular gay neighborhood, and say they look forward to helping all those infected with AIDS. Also, the NRA uses the Secret Service protection of Obama's daughters as a way to make a completely inept and embarrassingly stupid point about gun control

    I’ll concede the entire fight if those people can explain what “INMORAL” is. It’s a protest sign, not an iPhone. You can’t damn autocorrect.

  2. Pigs says

    Look at the anti-gay Latinos in that photo who are protesting and can’t even spell correctly. They’re probably illegals who don’t even belong in this country anyway.

    Being a Hispanic – whenever I see a Latino hold up an anti-gay or anti-gay marriage poster I think: You need to go back to Mexico or where ever you came from.

    Your RELIGION does not rule this country – nor yours.

    This is anothe rexample of what wonders that so-called god and that religion does to “village people”. I have disowned many gay Latiunos who follow Catholics or who pretend to be religious. They are gay! What do they do when they are havign gay sex? Turn the pictures of Mary around? HYPOCRITES!

  4. Brian says

    There’s no reason for racism or anti-religious sentiments here. What do they have to do with our struggle? You can’t combat hate with hate, or ignorance with ignorance.

  5. TampaZeke says

    The valid point could be made that it is shameful and disgusting for oppressed minorities to join in the oppression of other minorities but it should be done WITHOUT racism.

  6. says

    I have to point out ALL MARRIAGES ARE UNNECESSARY! Don’t believe me? Just look at any “relationship” outside the human species! No other animal needs the legal validation that they are in a relationship! The only reason to ban any marriage is to make certain people elitists!

    @Grivera: Quite some years ago, an ex-RC friend of mine kept a picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus over his bed. (He liked kitsch.) Whenever he tricked with an active RC – especially a priest – they demanded he turn the picture over.
