Electoral wizard Nate Silver recently did an "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit and one user had an interesting question about how Silver's sexuality affects his ability to be "unbiased". With his second Inauguration less than two weeks away, President Obama has selected openly gay Latino poet Richard Blanco to read an original work at the ceremony.
Obama may have gotten a gay poet to recite a poem at his Inauguration but the Pastor who will be doing the actual swearing in is a decided anti-gay bigot.
Gay rights advocate and Vikings punter Chris Kluwe sat down with Stephen Colbert last night to talk about a variety of topics including "lustful cockmonsters" and the gayness of football. Also Crate & Barrel features a gay couple in their latest catalog!
Showing his unending talent for intelligent political discourse, Rush Limbaugh spent a large portion of his show on Monday ruminating on a fabricated link between pedophilia and gay marriage. Along the same line of crazy, Pastor John Hagee recently likened gay marriage to "two disturbed people playing house".
