Since Friday, at least six counties in Utah have opened their doors, and held late hours to accommodate the long lines of couples seeking marriage certificates.
I support atheists' fight to be viewed in the same light as any religious person. After all, atheists can be just as compassionate, as loving and as giving as anyone else, regardless of whether they believe in God or not, so why should they be treated differently?
In late June, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered historic rulings in the Windsor and Perry cases, overturning the federal denial of recognition to same-sex marriages and restoring marriage equality in California.
Today, learning that a federal judge has declared Utah's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, I wonder where my one-time friend Beverly Evans is and if she regrets the vote that denied me equal rights.
The progressive Christian attempt to counter the conservative perspective, while needed, may also be missing the root issue involved. Christianity is alive and well in the Duck Dynasty, and the root issue is a posture of arrogance and power instead of kingdom humility and healing.
From groundbreaking rulings at the Supreme Court to state victories in nearly every part of the country to historic levels of public support, same-sex couples and their families can share in the freedom to marry more than ever before.
We must consider how Scripture and Christian values would have us live beside our LGBT neighbors. Toward that end, I want to examine three objections raised by the wedding cake lawsuit.
The trajectory of the LGBT movement for equality is accelerating. Typically, this means the opposition will only get shriller and angrier believing that these hysterics will stop the train from running over their indignation and fanatic devotion to chosen verses of their dogma.
Worst politician: There was no shortage of nominees in this category, as usual. Reince Priebus, Anthony Weiner, Trey Radel and crack-smoking mayor of Toronto Rob Ford all did their best to claim the title of Worst Politician, in fact.
This week I talked with Christin Mell, film producer and CEO of tello Films, which focuses on stories for the lesbian community. Christin is proud to be one of the executive producers and the distributor of Nikki & Nora, the first unaired network pilot to be reimagined as a digital Web series.
Since I have long been an advocate of same-gender marriage, I guess my friend believed that this Utah case about polygamy would reveal the lack of consistency in my argument, showing me to be another one of those crazy libertines whose morality is probably made up on the fly.
There has been a lot of controversy over a blog post I wrote on The Huffington Post two weeks ago entitled "Are Gay Men Scared of Monogamy?" Given the response, you'd think I'd written a post called "The Gay Apocalypse Is Coming, and If You Don't Pair Off, You're Going to Die!"
People who have watched "Duck Dynasty" will always watch it, regardless of the comments. The suspension just brings the show more publicity.
The state -- at least the state of New Mexico -- does not privilege marriage as a way to make impulsive young men stick by their kids. It sanctions marriage to help strengthen the commitments of couples and families -- real families. And that includes gay ones.
This is our pick for the top LGBT stories -- both positive and negative -- from the Americas in 2013. Separating the two lists should not give the impression that nothing good ever comes out of adversity.
It's been a good year for us gays, girls. YouTube tells us so! Gay marriage swept the land, and with it came videotaped proposals that rival Broadway productions.
