January 12th, 2010

This is the inaugural episode of what we hope will be a regular podcast at Box Turtle Bulletin. The format we’ve tentatively agreed upon is a discussion of three topics that are prominent in the news. If our readers can think of topics they’d like to hear about, or have any other suggestions or comments, please let us know.

We are also working on making the podcast available on iTunes so that you can subscribe to the feed and have the episodes downloaded automatically on your mp3 player.

For this installment, you have Timothy, Jim and me (Gabriel) discussing the Prop. 8 trial, the Uganda situation, and the Portugal marriage decision:

My husband/partner asked me to start the podcast over! We have been together 20 years as of yesterday, 01/11/10. We reside in NY so can not yet marry. We really enjoyed this new aspect of BTB. Keep keeping all of us informed!

I am trying my best to not let anger and frustration rule my life, but every day I get more and more discouraged by the American government. I am a product of Exodus and Regeneration and have heard every hate and slanderous phrase spewed by the Focus on the Family and 700 Club groups. Now is the time for a strong, moral, gay role model to speak up and be a leader. How can marriage equality affect heterosexual marriage when we have shows on TV like the Bachelor? This was a great podcast guys!! keep it up. Hi Gabe.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

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.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International. In this series of reports, I talk about what I learned there: the people who go to these conferences, the things that they hear, and what this all means for them, their families and for the rest of us.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing

Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council submitted an Amicus Brief to the Maryland Court of Appeals as that court prepared to consider the issue of gay marriage. We examine just one small section of that brief to reveal the junk science and fraudulent claims of the Family “Research” Council.

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count

Daniel FettyThe FBI’s annual Hate Crime Statistics aren’t as complete as they ought to be, and their report for 2004 was no exception. In fact, their most recent report has quite a few glaring holes. Holes big enough for Daniel Fetty to fall through.
