More On The Race Card.

“Ironically, Allen was the Police Union’s 2007 Lawmaker of the Year. In the last session of the Florida legislature he sponsored a failed bill that would have tightened the state’s prohibition on public sex.

Is This Really A Win For Gay Rights?

I like Deb Price, but her current commentary entitled, “Pentagon thaws on banning open gays,” strikes me as her, and so many other LGBT people and allies, as rejoicing for winning a tragic “victory.”  By repealing DADT, it is viewed that Congress, and the American people in general, are becoming

Another Example of Religious-Based Hate

Over the years, many Christians, including me, have written on how the Bible in no way condemns LGBT people, despite many others’ views to the contrary.  Indeed, when people read the Bible they frequently see what they want to see; that seeing, that paradigm, is largely circumscribed by their prejudices

The Death Throes of the “Ex-Gay” Industry
