Well!! For once the big elephant in the room is a good sign. If it cannot be ignored, hopefully it won’t be. What a turn of events; the GOP shooting at each other – big time!

This trial is turning into a fight for the soul of the GOP, as well as a fight for the dignity of GLTBQ people.

And about time, too, because since the time of Ronald Reagan, the termites have dined long and well. I wish the libertarians well in reclaiming the party from the theocratic wingnuts.

(Frankly the so-called Teabaggers are disgracing the name of the founding fathers, most of whom did not believe in a Christian god. They even claim Thomas Paine to be on their side! He’d be spinning in his grave if his body hadn’t been snatched.)

This is awesome!

Mayor Sanders is a good friend to LGBT’s everywhere and we could have no better ally!

Here’s a video of his news conference back in 2008 where he reversed his stance on marriage equality and the reasons why, which then allowed the city of San Diego to file an amicus brief with the California Supreme Court in favor of marriage equality!
