My husband and I are not a rare sight. Gay married couples are becoming commonplace. No one is snapping our picture and rushing home to show their family the unusual sight they encountered.
If I had to offer advice to other gay or straight couple's that are considering adoption it would be to simply 'do your homework.'
Pope Francis has inaugurated the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the Family. The three-week gathering of bishops from around will focus on married couples, parents and family.
It would have been one thing if he was suddenly putting himself forward as the poster-child for the dangers of oral sex, which aren't currently part of the health class curriculum. Instead, he did the opposite, minimizing this detail with the horrid summary statement of "it's that easy."
Please, Pope. Just be honest with us. Who are you to judge? You have answered your own question -- You are one to judge. Your definition of freedom is radically different than mine. You have thrown a crumb, but people are still starving.
The news that Pope Francis met with Kim Davis raises a series of questions that must be answered urgently. Let's begin with trying to understand what happened. And so we should ask: Did Pope Francis know who Kim Davis is? Was he aware of the consequences that were sure to follow his meeting with her?
When Paul Lalonde was in his early 20s, he would watch conservative televangelist Charles McVety on TV every Sunday evening. Needless to say, it rubbed him the wrong way.
Our marriage benefits the world in the same ways a straight marriage does: Together, we are more resilient, we are stronger, we have more to give. And I promise you, if you knew us, you'd understand how solid our love is, how worthy of honor and recognition.
Carson's thinking is not just wrong-headed, it is dangerous. Being looked upon as an illness, as a danger, destroys the soul of a person, teaching them to not trust their own thinking, their own feelings and desires, their own spirit -- their spiritual and moral rightness.
There were many milestones in the march to marriage equality, but Kaplan has the right to crow about this one: she picked the right client, litigated the hell out of the case and established the precedent on which dozens of courts relied over the next two years in striking down marriage discrimination.
The skewed rationale behind the FDA's deferral of MSM is a reminder of the double standards inflicted upon LGBTQ individuals in American society. In addition to failing to meet the blood needs of potential transfusion recipients, a policy like this can also take a negative toll on the deferred population.
While I sympathize with those calling for a boycott of Stonewall, I personally don't support a boycott. However, I don't think ANYONE should see Stonewall. Not because of its politics or revisionism, but because Stonewall is a terrible movie. Like really, really terrible.
Aspects of our personal life will inevitably bleed into our professional life as workplace culture is one that is interactive. The fear here is how negative stereotypes and misperceptions of bisexuality will negatively affect the professional progress of someone like me.
President Barack Obama welcomed His Holiness Pope Francis to the U.S. during a White House ceremony, and I was there. The experience was full of emotions. While of course I was excited to just see the pope and the president from a distance, I was also excited and curious to hear what His Holiness would say.
Pope Francis arrives in Washington, D.C. as a conquering hero, with jostling crowds lining the street in rapt adulation. Trumpets, pomp, elaborate ce...
Despite this well-documented need for and benefits of contraception, the Pope opposes any effort to give women the right to control their own reproductive destiny. You cannot claim an affinity for the poor while promoting the very policies that ensure the poor will remain ever so.
