“I looooooove me some Thomas Roberts!!!!!!! He is right about Michele Bachman who is truly terrifying to the LGBT community!!!!!”

lmcnop on Jul 23, 2011 at 09:55:26

“I agree with you but i'd add that she's terrifying to anyone with an IQ above 90 who think critically.”

“Uh .....straight men out there.......Ryan Reynolds is Frickin' hot, has a great sense of humor and is self deprecating!!!!!! Pretty much everything straight women and gay men look for!!!!! Smarmy? Ryan Reynolds is SMARMY!!!!!! Good grief....He has such a huge fan base and is a decent actor............would totally have his baby if I had a uterus!!!!!! He was NOT comparing himself to Harrison Ford. He was comparing the Green Lantern Role to Hans Solo.”

“I love Rachel!!!!! She is absolutely right.....if you are living in the closet...if you are a gay man that takes a female friend to the company party....if you are a lesbian who hides your partner from your family, then when you feel comfortable and ready you owe it not only to yourself but to all the young members of the LGBT community and the world to express who you truly are. We evolve together in this world......those who live in fear are hurting the world as much as themselves........I never felt the need to come out in a big way, other than to tell my family what they already strongly suspected.”

me109glen on Apr 25, 2011 at 23:56:45

“If that is good for you great but what gives u and Rachel the right to bully someone else. Lets stop the bullying. You want to stand on the tallest building and screem LGBT than do it. That's your call. LGBT loves to relate to the black community and civil rights but not every black person went to salma to get their head beaten in. They still supported the cause but had to do it in their own way. Call Obama up and get him to stand up make good on his promise to the LGBT. .That's change you can believe in...respectfully yours”

Renewed Fight For Gay Marriage In NY Hits Suburbs

“I live in Louisville, Kentucky which is like many liberal urban areas in a blue state. A church here in our fair city ,"Douglas Boulevard Disciples of Christ" issued a statement this past week that they will no longer be providing civil marriage licenses to heterosexual couples until the gays and lesbians have the right to a civil marriage!!!!! We had a Unitarian Minister last year that refused to perform anymore straight marriages until the LGBT community has equal rights!!!If it can happen in Kentucky it must be changing everywhere!!!!”

“I really believe that should Jesus come back to earth...he would be soooooo apalled at the horrible, awful things many have done in his name. God made gays and lesbians....and loves them just the way they are......God has no limits!!!!!!!!! It is the fundamentalists of all religions that set limits on their love of their fellow men..........If Jesus in his infinite wisdom knew that in the future there would be a world where people could be open and honest about their sexuality, don't you think he would come up with some great quote for the new testament?”

No, but she will and there is no justice in this world. Criminal bankers are still walking scott free and Lindsay is going to jail? What a country!!!!!”

“Good point! I believe that we need to speed up the trials for all accused. I was speaking directly to the Manning issue. Much of our justice system is plagued with racism and excessive penalties for minorities. I know that military trials are handled differently. I just can't help believing that we should not hold people that long without a trial and letting them defend themselves..........”

“It is not ethically right for this country to hold someone in prison that long, whether it is Manning or people at Guantana. That is so horrible. If Manning is guilty, try him on the evidence and if he has violated laws he should pay the price. One could argue that what he did actually helped the country....our government violates the principles in our constitution on a daily basis. We just are unaware of how underhanded our government is...I get a sense they have nothing with which to charge him....yet they still hold him!!!!!!”

mallah on Apr 21, 2011 at 22:13:27

“Um, what about civilian prisoners held in jail either on remand or excessively high bails? There are plenty who have spent years in jails before coming to trial, why does this accused traitor rate special treatment?”

“Oh don't worry. They have PLENTY of things to charge him with. But until the full ramification of what he did is known it's difficult to determine the severity of the crime until the dust has completely settled. That will take time.

This isn't rocket science you know.”

kay360 on Apr 21, 2011 at 22:10:57

“He hasn't been held without trial for over a year. That is usually the standard for "speedy trial."

They likely have the CD Manning used to download the information. I remember that's how he got caught.”

Tyler Perry To Spike Lee: 'Go Straight To Hell'

Commented Apr 20, 2011 at 17:17:44 in Entertainment

“Here is a question for everyone.....is not Tyler Perry sort of the "Black" Adam Sandler? His movies can be funny and light and they make a ton of money. I think Adam Sandler movies show really ignorant white guys but I don't take them as the only portrayal of white guys. Maybe if there were as many black directors/producers as successful financially as Perry and Lee this feud would be moot.......When a minority has less power in an industry, the ones that do have the power are watched more closely.........I think they are both talented and I enjoy both of their movies.....”

“Should be...It instead of I in my last sentance.”

texasems on Apr 20, 2011 at 17:56:08

“You sound spot on. I watch Adam Sandler movies. There are a couple of decent ones, but most are brain candy. If everyone was making the same type of movies it would get boring and people would eventually stop going. I think both Spike and Tyler have their niche and rather than complain about it, embrace it. Not every movie has to be thought provoking, makes-you-think fare. Some people just want to be entertained. I say good for both of them. I does sound like jealousy on Spike's part though.”

“Seriously!!!!!! I don't know most of the evidence in this appeal, but how many times are they going to court over this? I guess any attorney would take an appeal on contingency with the hope of some sort of settlement and a percentage. My guess is that Zuckerberg enjoys winning and can afford much better lawyers..............American greed lives on!!!!!!! Stay tuned for the next 10 years of appeals.................the geek won boys......you lost.”

“They say history is written by those in power.....I believe that is true. A half an hour in a history class about famous gays and lesbians in history such as Alexander the Great, Michaelangelo,Leonardo Davinci, Abraham Lincoln, Gertrude Stein, Alan Turing (created first computer that broke German WW II code!!!) and many others would show students that the LGBT community has always been here and does as much as any other group in helping our world. THAT would go a long way in curbing bigotry.”

FaceTheTruth00 on Apr 15, 2011 at 03:42:01

“But there is a HUGE difference.

Michaelangelo, Alexander the Great etc., their sexual preference had NOTHING to do with who they were or why they are notable in history.

Whereas, Martin Luther King, for example, his skin color was a HUGE part of his activities in life (civil rights) and part of his historical identity.

If MLK was white, he wouldn't be remembered, honored and revered; and he wouldn't have had the trials and tribulations he faced.

Whereas, Michaelangelo, Alexander the Great, et al, their sexuality had NOTHING to do with their careers and contributions to history.”

She lost her job with the company due to downsizing and now there is a real risk that she may have to leave the country.....AND they have a baby girl together. This is just wrong!!!!!!!!!

“I saw the show here in Louisville Kentucky from the front row. It was amazing!!!!! She really can sing and I didn't notice ANY Lip-synching. I am a fan but to be honest I paid the high price of tickets because the Scissor Sisters were the opening act (my favorite band!!!!). I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of the performance and I am a tough critic!!!! What was most interesting to me was the wide range of ages in the crowd. Of course it was heavily gay (all age groups) and there were 10 year old kids there as well as seniors. I have never seen such a wide range of ages. That should certainly tell you something about her appeal. Since Madonna has been a superstar, the media has been looking for the next Madonna...she is finally here!!!!!”
