  • Christian Site: John The Baptist Was Killed For Opposing Unnatural Marriage

    Christian Site: John The Baptist Was Killed For Opposing Unnatural Marriage The virulently anti-gay LifeSiteNews attempts to put a contemporary spin on the story of John The Baptist: A Christian man was executed during the night by a high-profile ruler after making an uncompromising defense of real marriage. The Christian, who was renowned for his holiness, had told the ruler in public that his relationship with his partner was “against the law” of God. The Christian’s words enraged the ruler’s partner who successfully plotted to have him permanently silenced. John the Baptist was first imprisoned before he was beheaded. The Catholic Church honors him today, August 29, as a martyr and saint. While John’s death happened a little less than 2,000 years ago, his heroic stance for real marriage is more[…]

  • Transgender People Share Photos Of Themselves For #WhatTransLooksLike

    Even though queer people are gaining more and more visibility in mainstream media and society, that doesn't mean that the images we're presented with are always accurate or fully representative of who we really are and how we live our lives. And sometimes we're still disappointingly absent, especially when it comes to certain subsections of our community.When it comes to transgender people, the past year has been an incredibly historic time for the community. From Laverne Cox on the cover of Time magazine to Janet Mock taking on Piers Morgan, trans people and issues have never received more attention or visibility. However, there is still much work that needs to be done to educate the general public and members of[…]

  • Best Tweets: What Women Said On Twitter This Week

    This week started off with a rather underwhelming Emmys Awards show. "Orange Is The New Black" was royally snubbed and Sofia Vergara was spun around on stage as “something compelling to look at." Kate Spencer weighed in on the sexist schtick, tweeting: "'Work hard,' I whisper to my daughters. 'And one day you too could be honored for your talent by being rotated on a platform on live TV.'" Great life lesson right there. In other news, everything we've ever known is a lie: Hello Kitty is not a cat. Rivka Rossi offered one solution to the Internet's misery: "There should at least be a Hello Kitty emoji now for everyone's loss." Emojis do solve everything. For more great tweets[…]

    AUSTRALIA: Protesters Block Entrance As Hate Conference "Opens In Chaos" Via the Guardian: About 100 protesters blocked the entrance to the Catch the Fire evangelical ministries in the Melbourne suburb of Hallam on Saturday morning, where the controversial World Congress of Families conference was scheduled to begin. Many speakers, including the American campaigner Angela Lanfranchi, who planned to speak on the thoroughly debunked link between breast cancer and abortion, were unable to get through the gates in their cars. Their path was blocked by protesters holding signs with slogans such as “Our bodies are our property” and “Women are not incubators”. More than 30 police officers formed their own barrier on the opposite side of the gate in the quiet street of Star Crescent, located in an industrial area. It[…]

  • Jamaica's Javed Jaghai Drops Legal Challenge To Anti-Gay Sodomy Law

    KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — A young Jamaican gay rights activist who brought an unprecedented legal challenge to the Caribbean island's anti-sodomy law has withdrawn the claim after growing fearful about violent backlashes, advocacy groups and colleagues said Friday.Last year, Javed Jaghai made headlines after initiating a constitutional court challenge to Jamaica's 1864 law that bans sex between men. He argued that the anti-sodomy law fuels homophobia and violates a charter of human rights adopted in 2011 that guarantees people the right to privacy. But in an affidavit, Jaghai said he has been "threatened enough times to know that I am vulnerable." The 25-year-old man believes his "loved ones are under threat" by intolerant people and the drawn-out court challenge is[…]
