Same-sex marriage is legal in 37 states now (and about 10 other states have become bi-curious), but apparently not in Alabama. After two federal court decisions gave gays sashay room to walk down the aisle, elected Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore did his best George Wallace "Jim Crow standing in the schoolhouse door" imitation. He instructed Alabama probate judges to stop issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Chief Justice Moore looks like the mayor in "Dirty Dancing." He has one of those awful, old Southern men, helmet hair haircuts that make a clear statement: "No gay guy has ever touched my hair." It is an image Alabama and the South do not need.
Yet, this is just Alabama is flexing its states' rights muscle trying to delay the inevitable. Gay marriage in Alabama will eventually be like gay marriage in almost any other state, except that somehow a hounds-tooth hat will be incorporated into the ceremony.
It is the position of Chief Justice Moore that homosexuals can marry as long as they don't try to marry each other. Liza Minnelli can't marry them all. He seems like the type of guy who would continue to try to set up Jim Nabors on dates well after "Gomer Pyle" ended. more >>
In my career as a TV producer for D. James Kennedy Ministries, I've had the privilege of interviewing all sorts of movers and shakers within modern Christendom. I've seen them on camera and off camera. One leading example of such is the Hon. Roy S. Moore, Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. From 1995 to 2003, I traveled to that state about ten times with a TV crew for Roy Moore-related cases. Now he's in trouble again---for sticking to his guns. I'll get to that in a moment.
When I first met Roy Moore in 1995 and interviewed him for television, he was a lowly circuit judge in a decrepit building in Gadsden, Alabama---kind of close to Birmingham.
The ACLU was suing him because he supposedly assaulted the First Amendment by having a plaque of the Ten Commandments hanging in his courtroom wall. It was surrounded by the Declaration of Independence and, as I recall, pictures of Washington and Lincoln. more >>
A controversial conservative activist who's known for advocating against homosexuality in East Africa has warned that the United States Supreme Court could bring forth God's judgment by legalizing gay marriage.
Scott Lively, former Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate and head of Scott Lively Ministries, expressed concern about the Supreme Court's decision later this year in a column on his website.
Campus housing specifically for 15 alternative sexualities, including sadomasochists, is acceptable, but fraternities that just allow men are not, at Wesleyan University.
Wesleyan University housing has an option for students who want to live with others identifying with one of 15 categories — LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM. The university's inclusiveness excludes, however, male-only fraternities.
Delta Kappa Epsilon sued Wesleyan University after the liberal arts college ordered all of its fraternities to admit women, charging sexual discrimination and false and deceptive practices. more >>
I just ran across Graham Moore's Oscar acceptance speech from last night, described by The Huffington Post to be the night's most moving speech.
"I tried to commit suicide at 16 and now I'm standing here," he said. "I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she doesn't fit in anywhere. You do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it's your turn and you are standing on this stage please pass the same message along."
But I would add one more point; don't stay in your sinful lifestyle. more >>
If "love is love" and "everyone should have the right to marry the one they love," then why can't any number of people come together in "marriage"?
On Valentine's Day, three men in Thailand were "married," and immediately, they became an Internet sensation.
As reported on GayStarNews.com, when Joke, Bell, and Art posted their "wedding" pictures online, "the internet went crazy," with one Facebook post receiving 50,000 Likes and more than 1,000 comments. more >>
