Right-wing nut Linda Harvey thinks Katy Perry's song "Fireworks" promotes satanism while her Super Bowl halftime show pushed the "homosexual agenda". Said Harvey: "It’s tragic that a former Christian has left the faith she allegedly once knew to become a glamorous huckster of destruction to her millions of followers.

The Atlantic on why the GOP is tied in knots on gay marriage: "…if a major Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of state level bans arrives as expected this spring, it will push the issue further into the foreground, just as GOP hopefuls begin their campaigns in earnest. While some have argued that the Court's decision could offer moderate Republicans cover by neutralizing the debate, it seems unlikely that Iowa conservatives will sit quietly on the sidelines if the high court rules against traditional marriage. Instead, a ruling resolving the issue in favor of gay marriage will likely heighten tensions. Republican candidates who might otherwise be able to remain silent will be forced to answer tough questions from passionate, conservative caucus-goers."
