Teacher suspended for views on gay marriage: Not Really!

Personal religious views are just that- personal. If same-sex marriage is opposed to a person’t religious views then, they shouldn’t have one. Salvation, which is the ultimate reason why Christians have faith and follow some doctrine, is an individual thing. What two men do in New York doesn’t harm this teacher’s salvation. He’ll still end up in heaven no matter what others are or are not doing. These personal religious views are what are protected in the First Amendment.

Perry’s 10th Amendment Problem

I’ve heard the reports that most GOP pundits get wet thinking that Rick Perry will enter the presidential race for 2012. On one level, I get it. Who is a bigger symbol of smaller and less powerful federal government than the guy who talked of succession and states rights. Perry loves him some of that 10th amendment! But really, who is being kidded by this talk? Conservatives don’t want more power in the states when[Read More…]

The language of same-sex marriage

Marriage Equality is a concept worth fighting for, but a part of that battle is to name our relationships, our marriages and our weddings for what they are: same-sex where they are as valid and meaningful, and legal as anyone else’s.

NY Companies to Gay Couples: Must Marry to Get Health Benefits

Until we look at the issue of Marriage Equality as a civil issue, and stop thinking of it as a religious/moral issue, we will continue to propagate unfairness and complexity for employers and employees.

Queer Rising Focus on the President Could Kill Marriage Equality in New York

To truly help same-sex couples everywhere, we need to assure that New York passes Marriage Equality. This will weaken NOM’s credibility, and encourage many other states to fight for Equality too.

Gay Marriage vs Marriage Equality: Gays as bargaining chips

The AP has a short article, linked here in the Wall Street Journal, about the current state on the NY Marriage Equality bill. It is way to close to call if it will pass the Senate or not, and either way it goes will be seen as a major win for that side of the battle over marriage. But here the problem: The senators, speaking on condition of anonymity, say gay marriage is tied up[Read More…]

NOM’s Changing Strategy

NOM must care about the Federal DOMA because once it falls, their attempt to maintain discrimination against same-sex couples will be essentially over. Even now, their battle is futile at best. Enough states support same-sex relationships, but as long as there is no Federal recognition of those relationships, these couples are still second class citizens.

Democracy Is More Than Having the Right to Vote

The Good As You blog, is one of my favorite reads, and Jeremy is a wonderful blogger. I agree in general with his post that is summarized in this line (emphasis mine): If gay rights opponents have the nerve to turn our shared governing documents into weaponry and to so crudely deny a rich and vibrant population sect of deserved fairness, then they at least need to have enough fortitude to own their truths. “Let[Read More…]

Ten Years Of Marriage Equality In Netherlands

Perhaps the single most important work of activists and advocates for Full Equality is to counter the lies and misinformation with truth about what real gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans persons are like. The more we are out and proud- the more people see us and our lives as they are, the harder it will be for the general public to see us as different.
