Lawrence O’Donnell throwing down a much needed history lesson on “traditional marriage” and absolutely destroying Tony Perkins and his ilk who selectively pull quotes from the Bible to defend their homophobia.
Video from The Rachel Maddow Show where she documents the President’s endorsement of marriage equality, his Administration’s historic record on LGBT rights, and Republicans’ ever increasing and endlessly horrifying homophobia.
She is serving some educated perspective realness right here.
An absolute must watch for supporters and cynics alike.
In today’s report on Old Celibate White Men Who Wear Dresses And Live In Gilded Palaces Trying To Tell Everyone How To Live Their Lives:
Gay marriage: Pope representative calls for Catholic alliance with Muslim and Jewish groups.
Archbishop Antonio Mennini, the Apostolic Nuncio, called for closer co-operation with other faiths as well as Christian denominations to put pressure on the Government over its plans to allow same-sex couples to marry.
In an address to Catholic bishops from England and Wales, he echoed the recent comments of Pope Benedict who said the Church faced “powerful political and cultural currents” in favour of redefining marriage.
So, it seems, THE GAYS are bringing groups together that have been trying to kill each other for centuries. Does that mean we all get a Nobel Peace Prize?
Unsurprisingly, openly gay representative Mike Colona (who, also unsurprisingly is a Democrat), is pissed:
“I can be fired because of my sexual orientation, my constituents can be fired because of their sexual orientation,” Colona said. “What this body has done is put protecting gun ownership above discriminating against somebody because of their sexual orientation, and I just don’t think that’s right.”
