There are many versions of Christianity. My favorite version is that of hippie Jesus: God is love, pure and simple. I hope that love will continue to win.
Robert Gates is not to blame that the ban on homosexual adult leaders was not addressed years sooner, but he must answer for the current plan that seeks to devolve anti-LGBT discrimination to all of those faith-based chartered organizations that might prefer to exclude LGBT parents. This is wrong and divisive.
If Mockingbird was about the rule of law and justice, about community and equality, Watchman tackles something even more intractable: the prejudice we find in those we love.
I think I'll listen to Taylor Swift each June from here on out to celebrate and commemorate what I saw at the concert -- and to remind myself what Pride is all about.
Some conservative political leaders want you to believe that gay men are a threat to children. They choose to turn away from actual problems facing kids in American schools. In doing so, they are perpetuating the obstacles that LGBT youth must face every day.
Scott Walker thought he was playing a deft game. But this week it blew up in spectacular fashion as Walker stepped on the Ben Carson third rail and blatantly implied gay men are predators who can't be trusted around children. You'd think in 2015 this kind of blatant defamation would be banished from politics.
GOD-IS-LOVE! His love is accepting, without prejudice, without condition, all encompassing, and the only stance you will ever need to take. And it's guaranteed that if you spread his love, then you will not only accomplish all you could ever dream of; you will also help someone else do the same.
The high divorce rate in the United States has long been a source of great frustration to the church. It sees heterosexual marriage as the bedrock of society and exhorts its followers to stay married at any cost, but few seem to listen to the advice.
The Supreme Court's decision affirming marriage equality for same-sex couples honors the memory of F.O. Matthiessen, Russell Cheney and numerous other same-sex couples of the past who -- against the odds -- were determined to express their love for one another and share their lives together.
What happened to Terry Mutchler? In her gripping memoir, Under This Beautiful Dome, the voice I hear is weak, barely audible. This isn't the woman I know as a friend and outspoken human rights advocate.
Sweaty Sexy Hero Scott Walker Announces Campaign; The Fake Planned Parenthood Hidden Video; Alex Jones Goes Nuts and Predicts Gay People are Leading Us to Asexual Humanoids; and much more.
This week I talked with singer/songwriter Jen Foster about launching her Pledge Music Campaign to support her new ambitious double record project entitled The White Room Sessions.
I think of the Big "C" Church as the institution with the rules, regulations, denominations, culture, and the overall organization that may turn people off from the idea of an organized religion such as Christianity.
No matter what occurs, social imbalance will simply not be sustained for long. It is unnatural and it is the reason many civilizations fall: They miss the brink of equality and the state of affairs collapses them. And that is the unequivocal history of humanity.
It's almost too incredible to believe: it took under 50 years for us to go from the Stonewall Riots, the foundation of the modern LGBT equality movement, to national marriage equality. How did that happen -- and who's responsible?
Global business today is about scaling up a niche. That is why firms across the United States are heads over heels about the June 26 ruling that unleashes the critical mass in an attractive market segment that had been locked away in the gay community for so long.
