'Drag Race' Alum Mimi Imfurst Gets Raunchy With Adele Parody 'Someone To Screw': VIDEO


Mimi Imfurst, the notoriously funny and controversial queen from RuPaul's Drag Race, has released a hilariously lewd parody of Adele's "Someone Like You." Titled "Someone to Screw," Mimi unleashes a tirade of pent up frustration with her past sexual partner, and wishes him nearly every sexual ill in the world. I would not want to get on this beauty's bad side...

Warning: Large quantities of work-unfriendly language.

Illinois Pastor Compares Same-Sex Parents To 'Five-Year Olds Who Think They Can Drive Cars': VIDEO


An Illinois pastor on his way to an anti-gay marriage protest in Springfield this week opted for offensive comparisons rather than rational thought when questioned by a reporter from Fox 32. He assured the reporter that "Our nation is not built on the strength of its army or its finances, but what goes on in our living rooms, and family always has been and will always be the foundation and bedrock of society. And so we're gonna stand for what God ordained; it's one woman, one man. Every child needs a mom and a dad." Things take an unpredictable turn after that.

Good As You's Jeremy Hooper reports:

...stick around until the 2:00 mark, when a local pastor compares gay parents like me to "five-year-olds who think they can drive cars."

Of course these folks will be rallying alongside one of the most overtly hostile organizations working in any of our states. Being compared to a reckless toddler with road rage might be tame compared to what else we'll hear today in Springfield.

Gay Activists to Picket IL Rep. Greg Harris, Demand Vote on Marriage Equality Bill: VIDEO


Illlinois LGBT activist group Gay Liberation Network is planning to picket Rep. Greg Harris, the lead sponsor of the marriage equality bill pending in the state legislature, on Saturday.

HarrisThe group's demand: "a party-line vote in favor of the bill by the Democratic Caucus, which holds a super-majority in Illinois's House of Representatives.

Writes the group, via press release:

GLN has been unique in publicly targeting the Democratic caucus, and especially House Speaker Mike Madigan (D-Chicago), for the failure of the bill, SB10, during the spring session and its uncertain fate in the current session.

"Because Speaker Madigan is so powerful, controlling access to jobs and contracts, most organizations are afraid to take him on and bluntly place blame where it's due," said GLN co-founder Andy Thayer. "Madigan controls the House as surely as Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel controls the City Council. When Madigan has wanted a party-line vote for far less popular measures, like gifts to the wealthy and well-connected, he's had no problem ramming them through the House. Like it or not, and mostly not, that's the way that politics works in this state."

Unlike pension "reform" and subsidies to already wealthy businesses that pay few, if any taxes, legislation favoring equal marriage rights in Illinois is overwhelmingly popular, with proponents outnumbering opponents by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, according to a February Crain's Chicago Business poll.

The protest is scheduled for 2 PM, Saturday, October 26 in front of Harris's district office, 1967 W. Montrose Avenue, Chicago.

Additionally, the Illinois Unites coalition has launched a three-day petition drive asking for a vote.

On Tuesday, after the March on Springfield, GLN unfurled a banner in the Capitol Building rotunda demanding SB10 be passed.
