CHICAGO: Protest Against Anti-GLBT AFTAH Group TONIGHT!

Queers United: Protest Against Anti-GLBT AFTAH Group in Illinois Tonight:
"The Gay Liberation Network will be protesting against Peter LaBarbera's anti-gay hate group 'Americans for Truth About Homosexuality' (AFTAH) which bills itself as an organization that is countering the 'homosexual agenda'.

The organization opposes all rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans people and seeks to vilify and pathologize queer identities in an effort to promote their hetero-supremacy.

Join the protest of AFTAH in Illinois tonight:

6:30 PM – Saturday, Oct. 24
Christian Liberty Academy
502 W Euclid Ave, Arlington Hts
(near the Arlington Hts Metra Station)"

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
