Gary Bauer Thinks Martin Luther King, Jr. Would be 'Mortified' by Gay Rights: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 5.48.43 PM

Politician Gary Bauer appeared via Skype on Hagee Hotline saying the Constitution doesn't guarantee civil rights for gay people or abortion and saying the concept of civil rights is being "hijacked." Bauer makes his case using Martin Luther King, Jr. as an example and that he would be "mortified," on the state of civil rights if he was still alive.

Bauer cites that King being a pastor would've meant that he wouldn't have supported abortion, "understood" the biblical message of marriage and he would've been a supporter of a mother and father-led family. It seems like using the dead and tragedies to back up their claims is conservatives modus operandi in making points and winning arguments.

Obama: 'I'm Hopeful the Supreme Court Comes to the Right Decision' on Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Obama

Speaking to internet star GloZell Green at the White House yesterday as part of a series of interviews done by YouTube personalities, President Obama was asked whether he thinks he'll see nationwide marriage equality while still in office.

He replied, in part:

The Supreme Court now is going to be taking on a case, my hope is that they go ahead and recognize what I think the majority of people in America now recognize which is that two people who love each other and are treating each other with respect and aren't bothering anybody else, why would the law treat them differently? There's no good reason for it. So as a consequence, I'm hopeful the Supreme Court comes to the right decision, but I will tell you, peoples' hearts have opened up on this issue. People know that treating folks unfairly, even if you disagree with their lifestyle choice, they're not bothering you. Let them live their lives and under the law they should be treated equally and as far as me personally, just to see all the loving gay and lesbian couples that I know who are great parents and great partners, the idea that we wouldn't treat them like the brothers and sisters that they are, that doesn't make any sense. 

Other topics in the GloZell interview included the Sony hack, police profiling, Cuba, and Obama's legacy. GloZell also had a funny flub towards the end accidentally referring to Michelle Obama as the President's "first wife." Obama humorously responded, "Do you know something I don't know?"

Mike Huckabee to Fight for 'Second-Class Christians,' Against 'Secular Theocracy' Should He Run in 2016: VIDEO

Huckabee

Mike Huckabee is once again airing his groan inducing grievances about the state of freedom of religion in the U.S. in a video segment with Jim Bakker, saying Christians in America are quickly becoming second class citizens. The two also discuss Hobby Lobby’s refusal to cover morning after pills according to the company’s beliefs regarding abortion and how the American Government is overstepping its boundaries in the freedom of religion debate-relating only to Christianity of course.

In another video Huckabee expresses interest in running for President to fight "secular theocracy" and help bring the U.S. back to a "God centered," democracy. Huckabee reiterates the claim that the U.S. was founded on biblical principals and that antagonistic atheistic forces are attempting to take Christianity apart "piece-by-piece."

Both videos are punctuated with conservative verbiage such as "divorcing common sense," "robbing of fundamental rights," and, "religious liberty." If you can handle a double heaping of conservative rhetoric courtesy of Mike Huckabee, you can watch both segments provided by Right Wing Watch, AFTER THE JUMP

Rob Fusari's 'Cary NoKey' Opening For RuPaul's Drag Race's 'Battle Of The Seasons' 2015 Condragulations Tour: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 1.45.34 PM

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 1.46.30 PMRob Fusari, the award winning songwriter behind No. 1 hits with several artists including Destiny's Child, Lady Gaga and Whitney Houston, is joining RuPaul's Drag Race's Battle of the Seasons 2015 Condragulations Tour as the show's opening act. The show is hosted by Michelle Visage and features several notable drag queens including recent winner Bianca Del Rio, Sharon Needles, Courtney Act, Raja, Adore Delano, Manila Luzon, Detox, Pandora Boxx and Darienne Lake among several others. Fusari, who wrote hit songs like Paparazzi, Love That Man, and Beautiful, Dirty, Rich segued out of the music industry machine and decided to start writing songs for himself that led him to develop Cary NoKey.

Said Fusari:

"On the outside it seemed like I had everything but I was never able to understand or accept certain elements that existed within me.

"Cary NoKey was always there inside. I simply needed to embrace my glam American Dream."

Cary NoKey's opening setlist includes cover songs and eight original songs from Cary NoKey's full-length debut album, Journal 8, set to release in early March. NoKey is set to debut his new single Do Ya? in the opening act and perform his recent single American Dream live. NoKey's American Dream, which has a music video on YouTube featuring trans actresses Trace Lysette, Dina Marie, Victoria Beltran and Bailey Jay, details the fall of the American dream and how trans people are becoming the true face of the American dream in a recent press release.

Said Fusari:

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.48.50 PM"The Pollyanna ideas of work hard, follow the rules, pay your taxes and ask not what your country has done for you but what you can do for your country have fallen into the abyss.

"Today's American Dream isn't about achieving goals. It's about doing what you got to do to get by. No one wants to earn anything anymore. We expect everything to be handed to us. The new American dream is a lottery ticket.

"Transsexuals (sic) represent the larger idea that the American dream is something within. Like when Glinda the Good Witch says to Dorothy after she clicks her ruby slippers, 'You've always had the power'. Pre-transitional transsexuals (sic) know they have to fight to release the truth that hides beneath the uniform the world forces them to wear. The moment we each find our own personal 'I have to' is when life really begins."

The Condragulations Tour officially starts in Las Vegas on Feb. 1, touring throughout North America and ending in Europe with its last show on April 16 in London. The lineup of participating drag queens varies by city and dates. You can watch Cary NoKey's vision of the American Dream, in the music video for the single AFTER THE JUMP...

Bryan Fischer: 'Muslim' Barack Obama Cannot Be Christian And Pro-Gay - VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d0aab9e8970c-800wi

Wingnut Bryan Fischer, the head of rabidly anti-gay listed hate group the American Family Association, has bad news for Barack Obama because the president can’t be Christian and support LGBT rights, reports Right Wing Watch.

Fischer is no stranger to such ridiculous attacks, having recently claimed that equality for gay people “represents the greatest single threat” to liberty the United States has ever faced.

Speaking on hate-fest radio show “Focal Point” last Friday, Fischer claimed that Obama is not a Christian because "nobody can support and promote and celebrate homosexual behavior who is a sincerely devoted follower of Christ."

Taking advantage of his direct line to god, Fischer added "I do not know what goes on inside Barack Obama's heart, but I do know that he is not a sincerely devoted follower of Jesus Christ. So, in my mind, that means he's not a Christian."

Just on the off-chance his listeners had forgotten, batshit Fischer reminded his brainwashed readers that Obama “walks like a Muslim...talks like a Muslim...sounds like a Muslim...acts like a Muslim.”

Irish Students Union Launches 'Vote For Love' Marriage Equality Campaign: VIDEO

USI vote for love

With a referendum on same-sex marriage due in May, the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) yesterday launched a campaign for a “yes” vote.

The USI has had a unanimous mandate to campaign for marriage equality since 2012.

Reland gay marriage pollThe student group’s Vote For Love campaign notes that over 90% of students are in favor of marriage equality - compared with 79% of the Irish population as a whole.

It also points out that there are 169 points of difference between civil marriage and Ireland’s civil partnership legislation.

USI President, Laura Harmon, said:

“Students have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make Ireland more equal in the upcoming referendum on marriage equality.

"It is clear that students want to live in a more inclusive and egalitarian society. Access to marriage equality is a crucial part of this. USI has registered over 20,000 students to vote, and we plan to add to this number over the coming months. We know students are excited by the referendum and anxious to have their voices heard on the issue of marriage equality in Ireland.”

6a00d8341c730253ef01bb07d2bbfc970d-200wiHowever, the USI also warns that a vote for marriage equality is not “just going to happen” and recommends that students register to vote and campaign for a yes vote.

The Irish government - including Prime Minister Enda Kenny (right) supports the referendum but has recently voiced concerns over complacency amongst voters.

As expected, the Catholic Church in Ireland has thus far been particularly vocal in its opposition to equality.

Earlier this week, Colin Farrell spoke on prime time Irish TV about his passionate support for same-sex marriage. On Sunday, Ireland's health minister Leo Varadkar came out as gay.
