Anti-gay hate speech is the exclusive province of alleged Christian leaders, pastors, priests, reverends, and politicians. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons), Roman Catholics, and the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention, are the ultimate embodiment of hate speech and narrow mindedness. Marco Rubio is clearly out of touch.
GOP presidential hopeful Marco Rubio joined the Christian persecution chorus this week, suggesting that Christianity may soon be considered hate speech due to LGBTQ equality activism. Rubio told the Christian Broadcasting Network Tuesday that the debate over gay marriage has led to increasing intolerance of the religious values of conservative Christians. “If...

"We are a nation and a state of laws," said North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory. And the Governor rightly believes that the law is more important than religious beliefs. Religious bigotry is still bigotry. 
By Marti Maguire RALEIGH, N.C. (Reuters) - North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory said on Thursday he would veto legislation allowing government officials to refuse to perform marriages by citing religious objections. The measure, passed by the state's Republican-led House of Representatives earlier in the day, would protect those who oppose same-sex weddings from losing their jobs. The Republican governor said no public officials who swore to defen...

How can a former HP CEO be so homophobic and transphobic?

Today marks the unofficial beginning of summer, as well as Memorial Day. Today I'm remembering and thinking about the countless LGBT people who made the ultimate sacrifice and died for their country. I resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for equality, liberty, and justice for all. I hope you will join me. Cheers!

It's Memorial Day, when we honor those in the military who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for their country.

TV Talk: Morally Bankrupt Huckabee Rushes To Duggar's Defense
The Duggar’s are counting on “praying away” the child predator problems, just like they counsel people to “pray away the gay,” which has been found to be totally ineffective. Right-wing extremists and so-called social conservatives never fail to disappoint....
Reality television star Josh Duggar, of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” molested young girls when he was a teenager, and campaigns against gay people as an adult. Hypocrisy anyone?.

Republicans don't understand the LGBTQ movement, don't get climate change, do not believe in the theory of evolution, and think that they can legislate their way to owning a woman's reproductive organs. What DO Republicans get right? (no pun intended)
Republicans have ignored the principles of the LGBT movement, confident they could win on other grounds.

Interesting article (actually an answer to a +Quora question) about the perceptions of LGBTQ people in Japan. 
Answer by Erica Friedman, lesbian icon, yuricon: This is a simple question with a very complex (and therefore long) answer. The perspectives held by straight people and gay people on straight people's “reactions” to gay people will be significantly different. Many straight people (not just in Japan) have a reaction that goes...

Right-wing extremists and so-called social conservative dirt bags never fail to disappoint! Those pack of wolves falsely claim that gay and transgender people should be stripped of their civil rights, because we’re
'child predators.' When Mr. Christian himself, Josh Duggar, has been a child predator all along.

Gay Marriage: What Does The Bible Really Say
Is religious freedom and bigotry synonymous? I wrote an article for “Medium” entitled “What does the Bible really say about marriage.” Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) excitedly told a crowd of evangelical Christians that “There is a  liberal fascism  that is ...
With all the rhetoric surrounding marriage, what does the Bible really say, and what relationships does the Bible endorse?

The Duggar's, Mike 'Holy Horny' Huckabee, and the Family Besmirch Council say that transgender and gay people are child predators, and who is the child predator now?

#gay   #lgbt   #politics   #joshduggar  
Josh Duggar, the reality TV star and conservative activist, resigned from his position at the Family Research Council on Thursday after reports surfaced that he had molested underage girls as a teenager. The 27-year-old is the oldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, whose family is the subject of the TLC show “19 Kids and Counting.”...

straight talk in a queer world.
Introduction

Roy is a gay male blogger, writer, queer activist, equality advocate, and anti-bullying evangelist. Jive in the [415]

He has crusaded against the lies and misinformation that right-wing extremists and evangelical Christians use to spread anti-gay propaganda.

He led a successful boycott of American retail stores that were financing anti-gay hate groups through affiliate marketing schemes. The boycott received extensive coverage from major media organizations. Reporter Michelle Goldberg wrote about the boycott for Newsweek/Daily Beast in an article entitled “Christian Group’s New Gay War” (linked here), and The New York Times  documented the campaign in “Retailers get heat for sales that generate anti-gay aid” (linked here).

Former Arkansas governor and noted homophobe Mike Huckabee called Roy “an economic terrorist” because his boycott campaign resulted in over 150 retail organizations severing ties with anti-gay organizations.

Roy blogs to advance equality and gay LGBT civil rights, by examining the socio-political, religious, and cultural challenges confronting the gay community today. 

He is a strong advocate for women’s rights and racial equality, and makes every effort to promote anti-bullying programs when he can, because he believes that every student has a right to be educated in an environment that’s conducive to learning, free of harassment and devoid of bullying.

Roy’s a northern New Jersey native - and went to Rutgers College - and was a Financial Analyst in the private sector for years.

He’s a trained musical theatre actor, and made his professional debut in London's west end - at the Barbican Theatre.  Roy has worked as a voice over artist, singer, political meteorologist, itinerant nag, and urban gadfly throughout his life. And he’s been a world traveler and a Mets and NY Giants fan for as long as he can remember.

Roy writes about contemporary political and social issues, which you can read at Jive in the [415].

Bragging rights
Mike Huckabee told a New York Times reporter that I'm an "economic terrorist" for calling on corporations to stop funding anti-gay hate groups. How thrilling is that?

Golden Gate Endoscopy Center is an outpatient medical facility on Geary and Commonwealth, in San Francisco, CA. The staff is highly professional, and the facility is state of the art. I have to admit that I was shocked to see the previous negative review, which is what compelled me to write about my experience at this facility. I had a very positive experience at Golden Gate Endoscopy Center this week, and would not hesitate to return should the need arise. The Doctors and nurses were professional, and this medical center was spotlessly clean. I was very apprehensive about the procedure and the facility, and my fears and anxiety was for naught. This is an excellent endoscopy center, and should you find yourself scheduled for a procedure here, fear not. You will be well taken care of.
