RoadNational Journal: Base revolts as some GOP leaders promote an LGBT-inclusive approach. "National Journal’s Political Insiders survey last month found that nearly half of Republicans think the topic should be avoided. Nearly three out of 10 said they support same-sex marriage, while only 11 percent are opposed. That’s a big departure from 2009, when half of the Republican Insiders said the party should oppose gay marriage."

RoadPhotographer Nigel Barker talks about his upcoming film based on the life of David Mixner: "The film will cover his childhood, who he was as a young man, where he comes from in New Jersey -- which seems like it was akin to the Deep South at the time. Then you see his sensibilities grow, his fights for human rights for everybody and anybody he came across -- he dedicated himself to Martin Luther King, the Vietnam War, and Peace. The AIDS epidemic hits and is really the change point where many of his friends start to die and be blamed at the same time. He thought that was an outrage.Then of course the rise of the gay movement and him really being in the forefront of it and being a gay rights activist."

RoadMichelangelo Signorile on the Vatican's gay fear: "The swiftness with which the pope accepted O'Brien's resignation, before the cardinals had even met to elect a new pope, reveals how much the Vatican is deathly afraid of how the gay issue will play out. If the allegations against O'Brien are true, the story would expose to the world the hypocrisy and self-loathing of powerful men who condemn homosexuality -- and blame the ills of the world on it -- while they may be secretly gay themselves."

"On the one hand, it spares Christie — who’s running for reelection in a blue state — the agita of having to make an appearance that Democrats would use against him in 2013. On the other, it underscores that some conservatives still are angry over the post-Sandy performance, as well as his tongue-lashing of House Speaker John Boehner for tabling a bill to provide storm aid."

  1. Wow. A day to acknowledge bullying and suicides among LGBT Youth and a kid shows up in an anti-gay shirt. Here's hoping he gets what he deserves in life.

  2. By "shaving off his beard", I'm guessing you don't mean that Affleck divorced his wife.

  4. And why were those clowns dressed like the KKK at a hockey game?

  5. The student in the no Rainbow shirt provides us with one of those examples of Freedom of Speech which me may abhor, but which we must endure based upon equal protection of all citizens as proposed by the 14th amendment in defense of the 1st amendment. Perhaps we need to see about sending some gay students T-shirts that have a large rainbow and lettering which says There are Rainbows...everywhere! Get Over It!

  6. It is possible that young men, wanting to pull a prank at a school gathering may not have been as vicious as some are trying to make them out to be. This event did take place in North Dakota. I would doubt that the influence of the KKK is as severe in ND and in the states of the old Confederacy. I would like to see what their history book has to say about the KKK and what they have learned about its mission in the south during and following the War Between The States. Being more than 140 years removed from the activities they were trying to emulate, they may not have sufficiently understood the implication of the costumes. It appeared that they removed them as soon as their peers let it be know that they did not consider their costumes to be appropriate. I hope this can be made into a teachable moment and not a situation to justify simply knee-jerk reaction punishment for the adults against the young men.

  9. The problem with the Pope quitting and going into hiding in the Vatican, is that he will probably not be tried for "Acts of Omission" when he had the opportunity to defrock and exspell the Priests And Bishops that molested the hundreds of children we know about and probably as many more that we will never know.
