Thank You, Clint Eastwood

Here is what Clint Eastwood thinks about anti-gay marriage bigots, colorful language and all:

“These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage?” Eastwood opined. “I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of.”

“They go on and on with all this bullshit about ’sanctity’ — don’t give me that sanctity crap! Just give everybody the chance to have the life they want.”

Thank You, Clint Eastwood

Sounds good to me.

American Psychological Association gets it right

American Psychological Association Governing Body Unanimously Endorses Marriage Equality

Posted August 4th, 2011 by Evan Hurst

Great news:

The American Psychological Association (APA) has endorsed gay marriage ahead of its annual convention in Washington.
With a unanimous 157-0 vote, the APA’s policymaking body approved the resolution on Wednesday.

“Now as the country has really begun to have experience with gay marriage, our position is much clearer and more straightforward – that marriage equity is the policy that the country should be moving toward,” Clinton Anderson, director of APA’s Office on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Concerns, told USA Today.

Dear wingnuts: those are the experts. Not you.

The adults have spoken.

From Press Release — very funny and original:

Today a horde of gay barbarians descended upon Michele and Marcus Bachmann’s “pray away the gay” clinic and demanded that Marcus come out and discipline them for their “deviant” behavior.

Marcus Bachmann, who conducts “reparative therapy” at the clinic intended to convert homosexuals, has said that gays are “barbarians who need to be disciplined.” The horde requested to speak directly with Bachmann and experience some “discipline” for themselves.

When Marcus was no where to be found, the barbarians glittered the empty waiting room and reception area while chanting, “You can’t pray away the gay — baby, I was born this way!”

The action was organized by the same young man who threw glitter on Newt Gingrich, starting a national trend in political protest of anti-LGBT sentiments from political candidates and campaigns.

“Michele and Marcus Bachmann think gay people are barbarians?” asked LGBT activist Nick Espinosa. “I think its clear to everyone who the real barbarians are, based on the Bachmanns’ archaic views on LGBT equality.”

Campus Crusade for Christ Changes Its Name
Posted July 21st, 2011 by Wayne Besen

From BeliefNet:

Campus Crusade for Christ has decided to make a major change — its name.

In early 2012, reports the Internet website The Blaze, the multi-faceted para-church group will officially drop the name it has held for 60 years, replacing it with a three-letter word — “Cru.”

The reason for the change is that “crusade” has negative connotations. However, isn’t “Cru” pretty close to crusade? And, doesn’t it sound like a gang name — Bloods, Crips, Cru! This heinous organization can change its label and logo, but it still remains one of the most anti-gay outfits around. College students — beware of this slippery bunch that will try to re-CRU-t you. (Yeah I misspelled the word so it would fit my purposes.)If you have had an experience with Campus Crusade — please share it in the comments section. Propagandists be warned, we will delete your nonsense.Tags: Bill BrightCampus Crusade for ChristCru

Tim Pawlenty Not Sure How He Feels About Lyrics to His Favorite Gaga SongPosted July 11th, 2011 by Evan Hurst

Okay so, of course, the science is not in dispute. Tim Pawlenty presumably either knows this and is pandering to bigots, or he needs to spend a little time with Google and learn about these things. Or he could just read what Zack Ford said on the subject yesterday:

In fact, there is no dispute among health professionals. All major medical professionalorganizations agree that sexual orientation is not a choice and cannot be changed, from gay to straight or otherwise. The American Psychological Association, the world’s largest association of psychological professionals, describes sexual orientation as “a complex interaction of environmental, cognitive and biological factors.” There is considerable evidence to suggest that biology, “including genetic or inborn hormonal factors,” plays a significant role in a person’s sexuality.

So there you go.  If you’re going to “defer to the scientists,” Tim, that’s what they say.  When the Religious Right talks about how they haven’t found a “gay gene,” they are either being scientifically ignorant or willfully deceptive, or both.
