With The Passion of the Christ being the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time, are audiences interested in a less bloody take on Jesus' life? And does Son of God attempt to tell us anything about Jesus' life that Christians and non-Christians don't already know?
Holder decries a law that is not only morally repugnant, as Johnson did, but also almost certainly unconstitutional. Defending such laws, as the Republican attorneys general claim they must do, may be a principled exercise of discretion, but a foolish and irrational one.
Stopping same-sex couples from ordering cake is not going to slow progress on marriage equality. Cakes are changing because marriage is changing.
I was stuck there and had no way out. But I could write it down. I could tell my story to someone. I had to trust that what I had to say was important. It was and still is.
Let's not forget that in Arizona, it's still legal to refuse to serve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in your bakery or your photo studio for religious or any other reasons, due in no small part to Jan Brewer's hostility to LGBT rights throughout her tenure.
Well Arizona, we've dodged a nasty little squabble. Our governor has dealt a blow to SB 1062, what CNN helpfully dubbed the "Anti-Gay" bill and other...
Although easily lost in the political uproar over the proposed laws in Arizona, Kansas, Georgia and elsewhere, the truth is that most businesses don't need Beau Crow laws to give them legal cover for LGBT discrimination.
The fact that they are gay is just another character element -- like gum-chewing, the tendency to curse or not being a morning person. And really, how refreshing is the normalcy of that?
Global brands better get used to finding themselves in the cross hairs, because human rights and LGBT rights campaigns and campaigners are increasingly as international as they are. And we're not going away anytime soon.

This isn't a matter of "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Dice," it's a matter of constructing a second class of citizens whose choices would be limited because of who they love.
I have to ask myself what the hell is there about my life and my desire to marry the man I love that causes these people to act, well, crazy, for the lack of a better word?
I have never been to Uganda, but I have been to Arizona, and now I am not wanted in either, apparently. It's not because I am white, or because I am American, or because I make darn-good money and could contribute to tourism. Rather, I'm not wanted because I'm gay.
Did you hear the one about how, if you live your whole life absolutely convinced that the world's going to hell because of gay marriage and the terrif...
While it is wonderful to see the U.S. appear rhetorically unified behind gay marriage, convergence theory posits that this will last only insofar as supporting gay rights is at the expense of Russia's public image.
What lies at the root of my anxiety is what I now understand to be a deadly combination of extreme information sharing and ambiguous calls to action.
For those who remained in the military, the ever-present fear kept them firmly entrenched in the closet, unable to speak openly or acknowledge their own families in public. That was just the way it was. Then history shifted.
