Obama Puts Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in the Closet

In a sad and twisted moment, the Obama Administration has decided to delay the repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy until 2010. The policy, implemented during the Clinton Administration, prevents gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military. Should it become known that they are homosexual, they loose their jobs.

Inauguration Declares Equality for All – Except Gays

My hope for enjoying the inauguration as an American and citizen of the world was lost when, openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson’s invocation was not aired due to a “misunderstanding” between HBO and the Obama administration.

Gay Mob Runs Christians out of Castro

Recently, a group of “Christians” were run out of San Francisco’s Castro District by a “Gay Mob”. I love the elevation this story has received in calling it a “gay mob.” Video footage of the incident shows a group of people being escorted by police while a group of homosexuals (and/or those supporting homosexual rights) are chanting things such as “stay out of our neighborhoods if you don’t like us.” Christian right-wing organizations are appalled and outraged that they were not allowed by this mob to express their religious freedom. Well, there’s a taste of your own medicine for you. This incident has inspired this issue of “Stupid Things People Say About Gays”…
