Recently, a large-scale study on the demographics of marriage equality came out. Some of the data in it was pretty much in line with what other polls are saying. However, with the vast amount of data collected, some things just struck me outright as weird.
The top editors at National Review and Nation debate the economics and morality of a) Arizona 1062, b) modern Pentagon budget and c) Kiev after Sochi. Looking 'into his soul', Lowry and vanden Heuvel agree Putin is dangerously confounding.
And even though Governor Jan Brewer wisely vetoed the bill, it reminds us that for every inch gained in the fight for true freedom and equality in a country that pretends to cherish both, it only takes one act like this to set us back a mile.
Your religious "right" to refuse service to gays and lesbians? Actually, no. ...
SB 1062 in Arizona was vetoed by Governor Jan Brewer! But not everyone is so happy about it. Amidst the hatred, there was actually more entertaining hatred found on Twitter.

Opponents of same-sex marriage in Utah and Michigan maintain that children of same-sex couples do not fare as well as those raised by married heterosexuals. This would be laughable if it did not have the potential to cause even further damage to children like me.
