Joyce Meyer FINALLY takes stand against Uganda's Kill the Gays Bill

She might be late out of the gate, but what counts is her finish.

Evangelical Minister Joyce Meyer Condemns Uganda's Kill the Gays Bill | Gay Rights | Change.org:
"Joyce Meyer is one of the world's most prominent evangelical leaders, selling out basketball arenas and filling book stores to dispense advice on God, charity, and self-esteem. She's an evangelical powerhouse, certainly in the same league with Rick Warren and Joel Osteen, with ministry offices around the globe, from Missouri to Australia to Uganda.

That's right, Uganda, the country that is currently debating a piece of legislation that would sentence many LGBT people to death, and sentence many more to prison. The bill would even jail straight people who support gay rights.

Joyce Meyer, despite her work in Uganda, had been silent on this piece of legislation, officially known as the Anti-Homosexuality Bill. That is, she was silent, up until now, thanks to the emails of hundreds of Change.org members who pressured her to condemn the legislation (and a huge hat tip to Box Turtle Bulletin, for their stellar work covering all things Uganda-related).

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?
