WorldNetDaily's Molotov Mitchell: Dan Savage Should Be Shipped To Iraq with Westboro Baptist Church: VIDEO

Molotov Mitchell

The love of Jesus is strong with World Net Daily's wannabe tough guy poseur and self-described "Christian Supremacist" Jason 'Molotov' Mitchell, a man so unhinged that even others on the far right will speak up against him. Now Mitchell is making hateful waves again by piggybacking on comedian Adam Hills' joke that members of Westboro Baptist Church should be sent to Iraq by adding Dan Savage to the flight list. He claims that Savage has done worse things than Westboro, like arguing for gay people being allowed to marry and bragging about trying to infect conservatives with diseases.

Mitchell tops off his little Christian display the Second Commandment by noting that while Dan is arguing for the right to marry, in many countries he and other gay men "don't have the right to breathe." Mitchell, of course, doesn't realize that this is why theocracies are a bad thing. 

Watch the rant, AFTER THE JUMP...

Dan Savage Joins Condemnation Of Jo Becker's Gay Marriage Book, Protest Planned: VIDEO

Savage_becker

Joining the widespread condemnation of Jo Becker’s book Forcing The Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality, writer and activist Dan Savage called the book “a divisive lie,” a theft, a "bullshit-washing of history" and appalling.

Speaking with HuffPo Live, Savage said:

“The book has been universally condemned by people all across the ideological spectrum in the gay community. You know, when you’ve got Andrew Sullivan, Nathaniel Frank, Chris Geidner, Michelangelo Signorile, John Aravosis, me, all these people in unanimous agreement that this book is a travesty… Andrew said recently on his blog that he’s seen episodes of (anti-gay preacher) Pat Robinson’s The 700 Club that were received better in the gay community than this book.

"Jo Becker claims that this book is a history. It says in the book — she’s backpeddling now — that this is a history of the marriage equality movement. And she describes marriage equality as an issue that had languished in obscurity until 2008 when Chad Griffin, Ted Olson and David Boies decided to do something about it in the wake of the Prop 8 case, and that’s just complete and total bullshit. And they’re being called on it."

Savage goes on to slam Becker for disparaging Freedom to Marry founder and long-time marriage equality activist Evan Wolfson’s 50 state, one-state-at-a-time strategy which has proved very successful. Savage points out that people involved in the Prop 8 case had nothing to do with the Edie Windsor DOMA case which has been much more instrumental in winning marriage equality state-by-state across the nation.

A protest is planned for Jo Becker’s May 2 book signing event at the Book Passage in San Francisco.

Dan Savage: Phil Robertson's Racism is Much More Offensive Than His Anti-gay Comments - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-12-24 at 7.20.34 AM

Dan Savage stopped by Anderson Cooper's CNN show last week to weigh in on the Duck Dynasty controversy and his thoughts on why Phil Robertson isn't getting as much blowback for the racist comments he made in the now-infamous GQ interview as he did for the anti-gay remarks.

Said Savage:

I actually thought what he said about African-Americans in the South under Jim Crow was so much more offensive. At a time when an African-American looked funny at a white person they could be lynched, oddly enough he never heard any of them complaining to him about the circumstances...but this is America and sex is [something] we'd rather be talking about than race or anything else. So the fact that he invoked gay people's rear ends means that's going to be the conversation instead of the really patently offensive, absurdly revisionist things he said about African-Americans."

Catholic League's Bill Donohue Wants Bill Maher Axed Because Dan Savage Pointed Out That Priests Rape Children

Savage_maher

Dan Savage's recent appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher was the last straw for Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue, who sent off a strongly-worded letter to the board of directors of Time Warner.

DonohueWrites Donohue:

Maher commented on gay couples who adopt children, alleging that a Hawaiian bishop said these kids had a greater chance of committing suicide. Here is how Savage responded: “That’s total bulls***. He’s confusing children of gay parents with children who are raped by Catholic priests. Sorry, I am just done being lectured about children and their safety by Catholic-f***ing bishops, priests, cardinals.” Shortly thereafter, Savage again remarked about “kiddie-f***ing Catholic priests.”

We are sending to every member of Time Warner’s board of directors a copy of 54 anti-Catholic statements made by Bill Maher on TV [click here to read the report]. Friday’s show concluded the season. The time has come to close this show once and for all.

Tweets Savage:

"Funny thing about this... ...is that I was raised Catholic. And so was @billmaher. Also, too, we're in the right."


Gay British Couple to Have Sex on TV, Then Discuss It

Sex-Box2

Channel 4, a cable network out of England, is sure to receive strong viewership numbers with its new program called "Sex Box." Part of the oft-scandalous channel's Campaign for Real Sex season, "Sex Box" is an interview-style program in which couples have intercourse in an opaque cube on a soundstage, then discuss sexuality with a panel directly afterward. A gay male couple, John and Matt, will be among the show's participating three couples.  

The Guardian reports:

A sound-proofed box in a television studio may not be a dream romantic setting, but then most lovers would probably not leap out of bed for a postcoital interview with Mariella Frostrup. Yet this is the format of a new Channel 4 programme that aims to "reclaim sex from pornography" by delving between the sheets of British people.

...

"I approached it with great trepidation and a degree of scepticism, particularly about why we needed a box, but ultimately I think it was a really really mature – surprisingly for television – look at a subject we've allowed to proliferate in its worst manifestations and refuse to confront," she [Frostrup] said.

The show shys away from the gratuitous sexuality so often employed to unsuccessful character-building effect in film and television, instead aiming for a still-sexy exploration of what sexuality means for the real couples. 

Channel 4's head of factual programming, Ralph Lee, said there was "nothing salacious" about the show and that "strangely it's quite a chaste programme – there's no sex in it".

"The explosion of online pornography is one of the stories of our time and this absolutely intends to be an open, adult, quite deep conversation about sex," he said. "The experts we have are not flippant people. That said, there is a levity to the conversation. It's not a massive furrowed-brow type conversation because there's something mischievous when you watch it. We're confident there's a sincere motive behind it."

Channel 4's other Campaign for Real Sex season programming include kick-off documentary "Porn on the Teenage Brain," airing September 30th, as well as a doc about the female pursuit of better sex, called "The Week the Women Came." Another reality program titled "Date My Porn Star" unites three porn fans with their favorite celebs.
