Ricky Skaggs: Gay Country Stars Accepted Because 'We Are All Sinners' - WATCH

Ricky Skaggs
 

Ricky Skaggs has the (reasonably) healthy view that gay country singers are accepted by the industry because “we are all sinners”, reports TMZ.

Religion aside, Skaggs seems genuine when he says that although it's "not what my heart is about," he hopes recently out country singers Ty Herndon and Billy Gilman will be accepted by the industry.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Kansas City Royals Marketing Executive Matt Schulte Comes Out as Gay - VIDEO

Schulte

Matt Schulte, marketing coordinator for Major League Baseball team Kansas City Royals, has come out in an interview with Outsports. 

As the Royals made their unexpected run through the playoffs this year, Schulte began exploring the idea of coming out. Through conversations with other out gay people in sports he saw a side of sports that was inclusive of gay people.

As team victories mounted this year and the elusive World Series drew near, his confidence grew and he began to find inner pride in a way he had never experienced before.

Although coming out to his father and stepmother had been a positive experience, doing so in the macho environment of Major League Baseball was a whole different matter.

"To walk into my boss's office, how do I set it up? Do I give them a warning? Do I spring it on them? I'm still not even totally comfortable with saying the words, 'I'm gay.'"

Still not knowing how to address the topic with co-workers and friends, he decided to share his story publicly via Outsports.

Continuing a positive recent trend, professional strongman Rob Kearney came out earlier this year as did Sky Sports presenter Mark McAdam.

Procter & Gamble Comes Out In Support Of Same-Sex Marriage - VIDEO

P&G_brands

For the first time in its history, Cincinnati-based consumer products group Procter & Gamble (P&G) is openly supporting same-sex marriage, reports Cincinnati.com.

This may not be great news for right wing anti-gay zealots. Tony Perkins, the leader of listed hate group Family Research Council, last week hinted at a possible boycott of Apple after CEO Tim Cook came out.

Procter & Gamble says that it has embraced LGBT employees for more than 20 years and same-sex marriage has become an important enough issue to its workers that it is taking a public stand.

Deborah P. Majoras, P&G's chief legal officer and executive sponsor to GABLE, the company's gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender-allied employee group, said:

"We have always supported our employees and fostered a culture of inclusion and respect – this includes the right to marry whomever they choose and to have that union legally recognized.”

William Gipson, P&G's chief global diversity officer, added that being LGBT-inclusive is “not a political statement, but a statement of support for our employees."

P&G’s announcement of its support for same-sex marriage comes a week after the city of Cincinnati won top score for inclusion by Human Rights Campaign (HRC). P&G also received a perfect score this year from HRC for its inclusion policies.

Terry Kelly, principal and investment adviser at Cincinnati-based investment management firm Bartlett, said that although P&G's latest stand could anger some consumers, the company has already weighed those risks.

Back in 2007, P&G supported the first kiss between two same-sex teenagers on soap As The World Turnswhich you can watch AFTER THE JUMP...

Back in August, advocacy group the Bilerico Project called on people to boycott P&G, the biggest television advertiser in Russia. P&G was also a Worldwide Olympic Partner and a sponsor of the controversial 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

Donnie Swaggart Says Gay Rights Activists Want To Behead Christians - VIDEO

  Donnie swaggart

The war on Christianity continues apace in la-la land.

Donnie Swaggart, the son of disgraced Pentecostal pastor Jimmy Swaggart, has compared LGBT activists with ISIS, according to Right Wing Watch.

Speaking on a “Christian” television panel discussion dedicated to the controversy in Houston, Texas, after Mayor Annise Parker subpoenaed materials from a handful of pastors as part of a lawsuit anti-gay activists had filed in an effort to overturn a local anti discrimination ordinance, Swaggart said that, like ISIS, those seeking equality for gay people in the U.S. would publicly behead Christians if they could get away with it.

"All of this is to shut the Bible up. They want the Bible gone. And I'm going to make a statement: These people that are trying to do this in Houston, the only difference between them and ISIS, those thugs in Iraq, is those here cannot chop our heads off. That's the only difference. The heart is the same. The heart is the same. If they could silence us that way to intimidate others, that's exactly what they would do.”

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d05dd2cf970cOddly, this isn’t the first time an American “Christian” has claimed that gay people are fond of beheading their religious brethren. Back in August, recently elected Colorado Republican wingnut Gordon Klingenschmitt accused Democrats of lacking a sense of humor after he sent an email which said that Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) will “join ISIS in beheading Christians.”

Swaggart’s comments had been highlighted by Right Wing Watch but the preacher’s media outfit SonifeTV have had the clip removed claiming copyright infringement. Right Wing Watch has filed a counterclaim arguing that the clip is protected under fair use.

Right Wing Watch has also made the clip available at another source, which you watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

NEW MUSIC: Cash+David, Never Mind The Baubles, Bent Cousin, Wonderful Humans, Nieves, Draag

  Cash+david ' Bones'

New Music, brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, will generally avoid most mainstream music - unless it's particularly deadly - to give new, emerging and fringe artists a chance. Most tracks are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.

Enjoy!

Cash+David: ‘Bones’

Cash + David is London-based duo Tim Ross (Cash) and Liz Lawrence (David).

Tim and Liz have described their music as like “singing ‘Like A Virgin’ in a desert karaoke booth, with Sleigh Bells on percussion and M83 on guitars”.

Fast carving out a niche for themselves with their dark, downtempo electro pop, the duo are also gaining attention for their striking visuals as much as their gorgeous sad pop music.

Watch the beautiful performance-based video for their latest track ‘Bones.’

Never Mind the Baubles - Small Bear’s 2014 Christmas Album

Never-Mind-The-Baubles-Small-Bears-2014-Christmas-AlbumIt’s Christmas time, there’s no need to be afraid.

Recording one off alternative Christmas songs has become a major thing in recent years and now a lot of independent record companies are getting in on the act with yearly compilations.

Possible best-in-show this year is Isle of Man label Small Bear’s ‘Never Mind the Baubles’ 2014 Christmas Album.

Have a listen to album standout track 'Happy Christmas (Alan McGee Is An Arse)' by The Bordellos, a thing of real beauty that channels Aled Jones with Half Man Half Biscuit and a touch of The Jesus and Mary Chain.
