Now Here Is a Christian That Supports Queer Equality | ZackFord

Now Here Is a Christian That Supports Queer Equality | ZackFord Blogs:
"Anyone who reads my blog knows I’m not a fan of free rides, so I have a challenge for my readers.

Read Bishop Spong’s full manifesto. It shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes.

Now here is my challenge. If you call yourself a “Christian” of any kind and you think of yourself as being supportive of LGBT issues, you should be able to agree with everything Bishop Spong said in this piece AND be willing to put those ideas into action.

It’s a high bar, but I contend that if you can’t reach it, then you aren’t there yet. If you can’t stand with Bishop Spong, then you are not fully committed to the identity of an “ally.”

Anything less than full equality is inequality. What do you support?"

Zack is an atheist, but he knows a good thing when he sees it. We all need to embrace our allies in the Religious community--regardless of our own beliefs.

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?
