Queerpocalypse

The time? The future. The place? Chicago. The survivors of an apocalyptic mess? One gay man, one lesbian, and a fat, old chihuahua. Welcome to the Queerpocalypse!

The Second City Network had a vision of what the world may look like in the not too distant future, and that vision was decidedly homosexual. "The patriarchy is dead. The human race is extinct. Except for a couple of queers." Join them as they fight for survival amid the ruins!

Anti-Gay Billboard In Tennessee Quotes 'God', Draws Mixed Response From Locals: VIDEO

TennesseeBillboard

A billboard in Portland, Tennessee has been drawing mixed reactions from locals for a few months now. The advertisement depicts an open Bible with a passage from Leviticus 18:22 on one page that reads, "You shall not lie with man as with a woman it is an abomination," and the oft-heard phrase, "Love the sinner, hate the sin" on the other page. The quote is attributed simply to "God." 

Some Portlanders see the billboard as a bullying tactic while others agree with the message and deem it a product of free speech. The backers of the board are unknown, but the bottom corner reads: "paid for by concerned Christians."

Fox 17 Nashville reports:

"I was infuriated. It's pretty cruel to single out one group of sinners," said [Ashley]Alderson...

Glenn Pennington says he sees the billboard as a freedom of speech issue.

"That's how they feel if the opposite side wants to put something up it's their business," said Pennington.

One local, Elna Harman, said she believed that the billboard was a positive promotion of God's word.

"It's a love for people," said Harman.

A mixed bag of responses to be sure, but not one person explicitly supportive of the LGBT community. Interesting that Alderson, though not in favor of the billboard, still deems the idea in question a sin. 

A spokesperson from the Tennessee Equality Project responded to the billboard with particular concern for LGBT teenagers who could be negatively impacted by its message.

They can't hit the high notes, but that's the least of their worries.

In a recent appearance on her show, Ellen informed Kristen Wiig that the two comedians would be striving to create the worst "Let It Go" rendition video of them all. Having somehow never heard the song--Wiig joked "I just know that the words let it go are in there...I assume they're in there!"--the pair proceeded to sing karaoke-style. The results are truly awe-inspiring. When Ellen and Kristen Wiig end up on top of the coffee table, you know you're witnessing greatness.

Fox News Correspondent Todd Starnes Thinks Gay Marriage Will Lead to Man-Dog Marriage: VIDEO

JoniShow

Appearing on the Daystar talk show "Joni" last month, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes felt the need to get some personal woes off his chest and lament the redefinition of marriage at the hands of the gays. 

In one segment, Starnes agreed with another guest in saying that same-sex marriage allows for countless other forms of commitments to be made, including a man wanting to marry his dog--all this from a conversation about the Denver bakery that refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.

And in another segment, Starnes said that he believes "the government is going to have to start coming after pastors in the pulpit," lamenting the probability that stricter hate crime laws (like the ones censoring anti-gay speech on Christian talk radio in Canada) will make their way to the United States. "I think that we're going to see some pastors who, quite frankly, may have to go to jail to protect their religious beliefs." If that weren't enough, he also throws out the old religious freedom argument, saying: "If I wanted to be persecuted for my faith I would go move to China. I like to live in America where we don't get beat up on the way to church." A classy line coming from someone boo-hooing about hate crime laws.
