Here’s The Internal Document The Salvation Army Doesn’t Want You To See / Queerty

Here’s The Internal Document The Salvation Army Doesn’t Want You To See / Queerty: ‘Tis the season. In cities across the country, Salvation Army volunteers wearing red Santa hats and aprons are ringing bells and soliciting donations. But if you were already thinking twice before dropping your hard-earned coins into those little red coffers you may want to think a third time.
Queerty has obtained SA internal documents that give lie to its propaganda campaign to win back LGBT donors and staff and confirm what we’ve suspected all along: The Christian charity discriminates against LGBT people, but it doesn’t want anyone to know about it.

JK Rowling asked if there were LGBT students at Hogwarts, she responds in an amazing way | Gay Star News

JK Rowling asked if there were LGBT students at Hogwarts, she responds in an amazing way | Gay Star News: The British author was asked a question by a Twitter fan who asked if there was a variety of people at Hogwarts, including gay students.

'do you think there are a lot of LGBT students in modern age Hogwarts? I like to imagine they formed an LGBT club,' they said.

'It's safe to assume that Hogwarts had a variety of people and I like to think it's a safe place for LGBT students.'

Rowling said 'Of course', and then linked to a picture which read: 'If Harry Potter taught us anything, it's that no one should live in a closet.'

Addicting Info – Hate-Preacher Wants ‘Army’ of Pastors to Help Him Cure AIDS By Executing ‘F*ggots’ (VIDEO)

Addicting Info – Hate-Preacher Wants ‘Army’ of Pastors to Help Him Cure AIDS By Executing ‘F*ggots’ (VIDEO): On Sunday morning, a crowd gathered outside the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, to protest the awful hate speech of its leader, Pastor Stephen L. Anderson. Last week, Anderson made the “Biblical” case that AIDS can be cured by simply exterminating all the “homos,” about 9 million Americans alone.

Anderson’s plan, which comes from the book of Leviticus, he said, would give us a virtually AIDS-free world “by Christmas” because he views the virus as being restricted to the gay community, except when a LGBT individual infects a ‘normal’ person.



Merry Christmas

Breaking: Michigan House Passes Religious 'License To Discriminate' Bill - The New Civil Rights Movement

Breaking: Michigan House Passes Religious 'License To Discriminate' Bill - The New Civil Rights Movement: Supporters of these bills claim they allow people of faith to exercise their religion without government interference, but in reality, they are trojan horses, allowing rampant discrimination under the guise of religious observance.

For example, under the Religious Freedom law, a pharmacist could refuse to fill a doctor's prescription for birth control, or HIV medication. An emergency room physician or EMT could refuse service to a gay person in need of immediate treatment. A school teacher could refuse to mentor the children of a same-sex couple, and a DMV clerk could refuse to give a driver's license to a person who is divorced.

How not to react when your child tells you that he's gay

Scott Lively says being gay is ‘worse than mass murder’ as trial moves forward | Gay Star News

Scott Lively says being gay is ‘worse than mass murder’ as trial moves forward | Gay Star News: Lively is being sued by the US Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), a Uganda-based coalition of LGBTI rights and advocacy groups.

The groups’ lawsuit alleges that Lively's actions over the past decade in Uganda contributed to depriving LGBTI Ugandans of their fundamental human rights based solely on their identity, which the lawsuits alleges falls under the definition of persecution under international law and is thus a crime against humanity.

If the lawsuit is successful it will be the first court victory of its kind.

The Anti-Homosexuality Law was passed by the Parliament of Uganda on 20 December 2013 with a death penalty proposal dropped in favor of life in prison.

RWW News: Klingenschmitt Says Christians Are Being Forced To Participate...

Meet Colorado's 'Dr. Chaps' | MSNBC

Meet Colorado's 'Dr. Chaps' | MSNBC: Klingenschmitt, who wrote a book about how President Obama is possessed by demons and once performed an exorcism of Obama, ran an utterly embarrassing campaign yet nonetheless managed to defeat his Democratic opponent by nearly 40 points.
It’s probably worth emphasizing, in case anyone isn’t sure, that this is entirely serious. Klingenschmitt really believes in exorcisms for gay people and that the president is demon-possessed. And 17,000 voters in Colorado really did choose, on purpose, to make Klingenschmitt a state lawmaker. That said, one might be forgiven for thinking Right Wing Watch’s profile of the newly elected legislator is some kind of joke. Klingenschmitt believes “only people who are going to heaven are entitled to equal treatment by the government.” He’s said “teaching kids about gay marriage is mental rape.” He’s argued that the Affordable Care Act “causes cancer.” He’s described Islamic State militants as a sign of the Biblical End Times. But again, this is not a joke. After Klingenschmitt won his primary, state Republican Party Chairman Ryan Call said, “Gordon does not speak on behalf of the Republican Party. To suggest otherwise is inaccurate and dishonest.” That said, it is accurate and honest to note Klingenschmitt has shared truly nutty ideas in public and now the Republican is, in fact, an elected state lawmaker in Colorado.

Addicting Info – Gay Community Comes To The Aid Of Anti-Gay Bakery Owners

Addicting Info – Gay Community Comes To The Aid Of Anti-Gay Bakery Owners: A year ago, the Kleins drew national attention for their refusal to take an order for a wedding cake which was to be served at a same sex marriage ceremony. The couple who ordered the cake, Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowman, say that Aaron Klein said they were “an abomination to the Lord.” They filed a complaint against the bakery with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry, who recently ruled that there was “serious evidence that the couple broke the law by refusing to bake the cake.” The state ordered them to pay a fine that totals more than $150,000.

The Kleins, who originally said they would rather close down their business than be forced to bake cakes for gay people, blamed everyone else when their business did close. In addition to stating that they’d prefer to close their business than have to follow the state’s anti-discrimination laws...

Pope Francis the loser as hardline bishops veto gay-friendly statements | World news | The Observer

Pope Francis the loser as hardline bishops veto gay-friendly statements | World news | The Observer: Pope Francis appeared on Saturday night to have lost out to powerful conservatives in the Roman Catholic church after bishops scrapped language that had been hailed as a historic warming of attitudes towards gay people.

In the final report of an extraordinary synod on the family which has exposed deep divides in the church hierarchy, there is no mention – as there had been in a draft version – of the “gifts and qualities” gay people can offer. Nor is there any recognition of the “precious support” same-sex partners can give each other.

Courts knock down gay marriage bans in Arizona, Alaska, Wyoming - Yahoo News: PHOENIX (Reuters) - Barriers to gay marriage fell in Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming on Friday following a series of federal court actions in the latest in a series of legal victories for supporters of same-sex matrimony in America.

In Arizona, U.S. District Judge John Sedwick wrote in a ruling made public on Friday that the state's curbs on gay marriage were "unconstitutional by virtue of the fact that they deny same-sex couples the equal protection of the law."

Huckabee Threatens to Leave Republican Party Over Gay Marriage | Video | RealClearPolitics: MIKE HUCKABEE: I am utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have abdicated on this issue when, if they continue this direction they guarantee they’re gonna lose every election in the future....

If the Republicans wanna lose guys like me, and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people, go ahead and just abdicate on this issue, and go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either. Because at that point, you lose me, I’m gone. I’ll become an independent, I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand, I’m tired of this.



We're tired of you, too.

BBC News - How the Supreme Court non-decided gay marriage

BBC News - How the Supreme Court non-decided gay marriage: The Supreme Court decision not to consider any of the seven pending gay marriage cases on Monday morning came as an unexpected jolt to supporters on both sides of the issue.

After the initial surprise had worn off, however, the perceived logic behind the court's decision emerged.

The court justices didn't get involved because they didn't have to. All of the lower court decisions so far have pointed in one direction - towards endorsing constitutionally protected right for same-sex couples to marry.
