Wendy Davis Argues In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage At Final Texas Gubernatorial Debate: VIDEO

WendyDavis

Fierce Texas state senator Wendy Davis met with attorney general Greg Abbott for a final gubernatorial debate last night. The nearly hour-long conversation about hot topics, ranging from abortion (Davis is pro-choice, Abbott pro-life even in the case of rape and incest) to confirmed Ebola cases in Dallas, eventually wound its way to same-sex marriage. 

A viewer named John from Forth Worth, TX posed the question: "If a 10-year-old girl asked you whether her two dads should be allowed to get married, what would you tell her?" The moderator asked whether the candidates would support legislation to overturn the ban currently placed on same-sex marriage in the state. The two candidates played their respective party roles, though Davis's direct approach and commitment to the issue clearly overshadowed Abbott's jovial dedication to preserving "traditional marriage." A 10-year-old might be confused by Davis's political jargon, but at least she wouldn't feel condescended to, Mr. Abbott.

MSNBC reports:

Davis argued in favor of marriage equality and noted Abbott has renewed the fight against same-sex marriage. She also said she’d welcome a bill that would give voters an opportunity to appeal the state’s constitutional ban on gay marriage. Abbott reiterated, “I believe in traditional marriage,” noting he’s been married to his wife for more than three decades and that more than 75% of Texans approved a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages in the state.

After Abbott opted to discuss his own happy marriage and an outdated public vote, the moderator simply asked: "Is that what you would tell to the 10-year-old?" "That's what I just told John," he replied, big grin plastered on his face (see below).

Harlem Pastor Threatens 'Homos' With Hateful Church Sign: 'Jesus Fired And Brim-Stoned Them'

ManningSign

Pastor James David Manning of ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem is back with another offensive, homophobic, and frightening sign. Manning previously warned African-American women that President Obama was responsible for unleashing white gay men on their husbands, and he whole-heartedly believes in the use of the word "faggot." Under a towering cross stating "Jesus is Lord," Manning has once again opted to spout hateful rhetoric and lies.

JdmThe New Civil Rights Movement reports:

"When the homos bullied the poor and needy in Sodom like they do in Harlem, Jesus fire and brim-stoned them," it reads. 

Manning would have you believe that's a quote from the Bible.

It's not.

Manning also believes that Michael Sam may marry a 9-year-old boy and that Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are closeted homosexuals. It seems like someone may be losing touch with reality...

Middle East Broadcasting Center Retracts Inaccurate And Offensive Gay 'List Of Shame'

DanRadHornsThe Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC) recently posted a "list of shame," intended perhaps to raise the general public's awareness about LGBT actors, musicians, etc... It is, of course, a wholly offensive idea to begin with, particularly given the wide berth of the MBC's audience: 150 million people.

But the list was also inaccurate, calling Daniel Radcliffe gay, naming Cameron Diaz as a bisexual, and informing audiences that Elton John wore a dress at his wedding. All these things would be just fine were they not forced into a categorization of "shame." The MBC has now retracted the list and issued an apology.

Pink News reports:

In the apology and retraction, MBC noted that the list was “clearly not related to neither [sic] the presenter of the show.. nor the show itself,” and admitted that the junior editor who published it in the first place had failed to fact-check the story...

It is still unclear why the junior editor felt compelled to publish a “list of shame” naming gay celebrities, whether or not some were incorrectly named.

Other people named in the list included Ricky Martin, Neil Patrick Harris, Jodie Foster, and Lindsay Lohan. They may fall somewhere on the LGBT spectrum (unlike Radcliffe and Diaz), but they certainly should not feel ashamed.
