GOP Senator Jeff Flake: Republican Presidential Candidate Who Supports Marriage Equality 'Inevitable': Video

GOP Arizona Senator Jeff Flake assured Chuck Todd on Meet The Press today that a Republican presidential candidate who supports marriage equality is "inevitable."

Flake also reiterated that he does not intend to change his personal view on marriage (that it is between one man and one woman) while he is in political office which means that he would clearly not be that accepting candidate if he ever decided to through his hat into the presidential ring.

NYC Cardinal Timothy Dolan On Marriage In Catholic Church: Gays And Lesbians Are 'Entitled To Friendship': Video

CardinalABC’s This Week host George Stephanopoulos asked guest Cardinal Timothy Dolan how he would respond to Catholic gays and lesbians who want to get married in the Catholic Church.

Dolan, who claims the church "is not an anti-anybody," replied:

"Well, the first thing I’d say to them is, 'I love you, too. And God loves you. And you are made in God’s image and likeness. And – and we – we want your happiness. But – and you’re entitled to friendship.' But we also know that God has told us that the way to happiness, that – especially when it comes to sexual love – that is intended only for a man and woman in marriage, where children can come about naturally. We gotta be – we gotta do better to see that our defense of marriage is not reduced to an attack on gay people. And I admit, we haven’t been too good at that."

RNC Official Dave Agema Refuses To Resign Over Anti-Gay Message

Several days ago, Andy posted about a call for the resignation of Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema after he published an appalling anti-gay message on his Facebook page.

AgemaIn that post, he encouraged people to read a hateful propaganda piece titled "Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuals" which includes such abhorrent claims as gays are responsible for “half the murders in large cities.”

Agema was interviewed by Michigcan's WWMT3 and, while he slightly backs away from some parts of the article, he says he very much still believes most of it.

"They quoted as what somebody else said and attributed it to me; I didn't say that," Agema said. "So, do I agree with everything that that guy and the way he said it in the article, no. But he gives a lot of statistics on the results of the health and mental and physical health of the lifestyle and what it causes."

He is refusing to resign form his post.

Watch the interview, AFTER THE JUMP.

Freddie Mercury And Princess Diana Allegedly Partied At Gay Club

And Diana was apparently decked out in drag.

British comedy actress Cleo Rocos describes in her new book how she and Freddie Mercury dressed Princess Diana up as a man one night and brought her, undetected, to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, a well-known gay bar in London. She apparently had a blast.

The AFP reports:

600full-princess-dianaComedian Cleo Rocos describes in her book "The Power of Positive Drinking" how she, Mercury and fellow comedian Kenny Everett dressed Diana in an army jacket, cap and sunglasses for a night out at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, south London, in the late 1980s.

"When we walked in... we felt she was obviously Princess Diana and would be discovered at any minute. But people just seemed to blank her. She sort of disappeared. But she loved it," said Rocos, who co-starred in Everett's television show.

She said she did not know whether Diana was propositioned in the bar in her guise as a male model, but added: "She did look like a beautiful young man." The presence of Mercury, Everett and Rocos diverted revellers' attention and Diana was able to order drinks undetected, Rocos recalled.

Parts of Rocos' book are being printed in The Sunday Times. Read the full entry about Diana's night out here.
