The American Family Association [a group which I’ve always thought to be misleadingly named] is at it again, this time declaring that those that support gay rights and equality are not Christians.
After my last post describing my adventures in downtown San Antonio while attempting to gather signatures to the Open Letter to Obama, I took to the streets again. It was about 10:30 p.m. when I, along with three others, pulled into the parking lot near a local gay bar. The crowds were coming at full force and we could have used several more people to try to obtain everyone’s signatures. It was windy and cold, but our reception was warm and tender… for the most part.

Nathan Runkle (age 24), founder of Mercy for Animals, was brutally beaten outside of a gay nightclub in Ohio on Saturday, December 27, 2008. Nathan, best know for his work as an animal rights activist was also voted as one of VegNews Magazine’s “25 Most Fascinating Vegetarians”.
While surfing the net I stumbled across a rather obnoxious quiz titled, “Is Your Man Gay?” Of course, I had to take this quiz to find out once and for all whether my man was indeed gay. I do sometimes find him exhibiting heterosexual characteristics like reading vintage Playboys “for the articles.” So I geared up and answered every question as honestly as possible to finally determine once and for all whether my man was indeed a homosexual.
