I can’t think of a single thing to add to this:



February 29th, 2008

Thank you, Ellen.


February 29th, 2008

I am gay! It is OK to be gay. It is NOT okay to hate. Thank you Ellen.

That was one of the most impassioned and insightful calls to action that I’ve seen in a long time.

I LOVE this woman! Even though, had she had a meltdown over Larry, rather than the taking away of a little dog, it’s hard to say if this PSA isn’t a little anti climatic.
But, I believe firmly in the passion of Ellen, her love and understanding of where she’s from and who she speaks for.
Her mom is a friend of mine and Betty, her heart breaks BAD when ever something like this happens to a CHILD.
Betty is the godmother of gay foster children through the GLASS network.
Gay and lesbian adolescent social services.
Ellen has a powerful voice out there.
And more power to her.
Thanks Jim!

I am the mother of a gay son, I believe that parents have the responsibility to teach their children to accept and appreciate people for who they are. The parents in this case were not in tune with their sons hatred and that is SAD! These so called Christian religions that preach that “Gay” is a choice need to reach deep into their souls, they are SO WRONG and for that I am sad.One more thing there is a BIG difference between a pediophile and a gay person.People that are homophobic need to educate them selves before they open their mouths,this comment always makes me sick to hear as a mom of a gay son. PlEASE people STOP the HATRED!

Even as we think we’ve achieved so much, there’s ever a reminder that we also have so far to go. If not for us, for others.

Comfortable adulthood evaporates and our own earlier terrors return, at such times. I’m glad Ellen let those feelings be obvious.

Who would raise a hetrosexual man to be so weak that he could not tolerate, even appreciate at some level, a gay peer saying “I love you”?

The correct reply is “thank you”.

But, murder? A ruin of two lives.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
