To Tony Perkins, nothing's more dangerous to a child than a queer role model. But imagine what those role models mean to queer kids. I didn't know I was gay when I was a little 7-year-old Boy Scout. Nothing would have been more important to me than to know that I wasn't alone.

The recent Amtrak crash was a tragedy. Why did it happen? American Family Radio host Sandy Rios believes the train engineer's homosexuality could have been a factor. She suggests that the engineer, like all homosexuals, could have been "going through some confusion that has to do with the very core of who they are." This is an interesting angle on the... the... um... um....

I have a strong, healthy dose of self-esteem. This is fortunate because recently there has been a steady stream of damaging messages coming from the media, politicians and religious leaders. There are plenty of voices proclaiming that there is something wrong with me.

Religious Freedom Gives Me the Constitutional Right to Violate Your Constitutional Rights, Right?

Ian Reifowitz | Posted 04.04.2015 | Politics
Ian Reifowitz

Conservatives just love the Constitution -- or at least they say they do. The thing is that they don't seem to have any idea how it works. At least that's a more charitable explanation than saying they don't care how the Constitution works and merely use it as a fig leaf while they undermine the rights it guarantees.

The American Family Association, sponsor of the Republican National Committee's upcoming Israel trip (organized and led by pastor David Lane), is no less extreme and has been venting its virulently hateful anti-LGBT, nativist, religious supremacist, and arguably racist rhetoric across America's airwaves for years.

If you want to know the current state of the Republican Party, look no further than the activities that the party's leading presidential hopefuls have planned for this weekend. They are scrambling to win the support of theocrats, bigots and anti-immigrant extremists. What they don't seem to realize is that that will make it much harder for them to win the respect of the rest of us.

Why Do Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and Other GOP Politicians Continue Bowing to Anti-LGBT Extremists?

J. Richard Cohen | Posted 11.26.2014 | Politics
J. Richard Cohen

Why do politicians like Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal still think it's OK to speak to groups that vilify the LGBT community with outrageous propaganda and demonizing falsehoods? If racism is anathema to the GOP, why isn't overt anti-LGBT bigotry equally repellent?
