The Ever Diabolical Harry R. Jackson, Jr. : Marriage At Risk In D.C.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. : Marriage At Risk In D.C. -
"The lesson pro-family activists should learn from this DC City Council drama is that we can change a state or nation’s policies on important issues by simply playing local politics with a vengeance."

No No, Harry Jackson--friend, we already LEARNED it from you. From watching James Dobson and Jerry Falwell all these years, by watching the Conservative money/political machine hoover up dollars from the sick and poor in blue-collar America by using scare tactics: "Your America will come crashing down around you! They'll force you to see and do things that frighten and disgust you! Give all of your posessions now, and we'll look out for you!" And you lined the pockets of lobbying groups that used money given to fight the 'anti-family (as if we don't have families)' homosexual menace to do so, but to also push bigger goals of destroying government infrastructure and programs and deregulate so that big rich companies could get even richer.

Yes, sir, we learned it from watching you.

Now we understand how to play the game. We understand that you have to get Corporate America on board. You have to mix your issues up with other issues. You have to throw intellectual debate out of the window and go for people's guts, and you have to work. Hard.

Because hate is a strong and powerful nemesis, Bishop. Your hatred especially. Your hatred for me and my family--for us and OUR families. Hatred and greed and power. It is strong and nimble and calculating.

And we have to stay focused and stay diligent to finally send hate back to hell where it belongs. However, we've got it now. We know what it will take. We understand that it takes persistence, perseverance, nerve, and a big mouth. We know that we've got to try to get through to the people any way we can in order to counter the millions and millions of dollars you spend in every market spreading lies and distorting truth (so much for the 8th Commandment, Bishop Jackson). We know it will take every ounce of what we have. And we're willing to put it in now. And to build a proper strategy to make that effort worthwhile.

Because we learned it from watching you.

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."


-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…

WHAT. THE. HELL? NEW HAMPSHIRE??? (and a prop 8 update)

Okay, first let me just say CALIFORNIA can breathe easy for a few more days as San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsome convinced the Supreme Court to hold of on releasing their decision on Prop 8 a few more days until the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots is passed.  We're probably going to see it Tuesday, the following Thursday or THAT following Monday.  
NOW:  WHAT THE HELL, NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!????!
The NEW HAMPSHIRE House, which on May 6 APPROVED Marriage Equality by a vote of 178-167, has now stalled the REWRITTEN BY GOVERNOR JOHN LYNCH bill 188-186--That's right, folks, two votes.  25 members did not vote at all, and opponents of the bill failed to kill it in a 173-202 vote, but this STILL means we're waiting on NEW HAMPSHIRE to GET ITS SHIT TOGETHER!  The House passed a resolution to continue negotiating with the Senate by a vote of 207-168.  If that same number votes for the 're-re-renegotiated' bill in the next two weeks it will pass, but …
