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.

Posted August 8th, 2011 by Evan Hurst

 

In news sure to make wingnuts squirm, News Corp, the parent company of their beloved Fox News,will be publishing a magazine devoted to the planning of gay weddings:

News Corporation, the parent company of the right-leaning cabler Fox News, will publish a magazine devoted to gay and lesbian weddings.

The inaugural issue of glossy Wedding Pride: The Magazine for Gay and Lesbian Wedding Planning will hit newstands in September.

The magazine is being published by CNG Publications, a unit of New York-based Community Newspaper Group, which is owned by News Corporation…

You see, conservatives, Rupert, Fox and News Corp don’t actually care about or respect you. They respect ca$h.

Nebraska Couple Wins Their Dream Wedding

♡ Way to go Facebook and Tumblr users!!!!!!! 

This post comes from Lincoln, Nebraska couple Ryan Lowry and Mitch Lee

Three weeks ago, my partner Mitch and I entered a contest through our local newspaper in Lincoln, NE to win a wedding package. When we entered, we had no idea the kind of response we would get. What started as a local effort to get our friends and family to vote for us turned into a national (and even international) outpouring of support.

The contest ended on July 18th, and I am thrilled to say that out of nearly 90 couples who entered, we received the highest number of votes and won! We want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who followed our story and showed thier support. As the contest progressed, and the comments came in, we realized it was no longer about us or the prize. Instead it was about standing up for equal rights and that even in some of the most conservative parts of the country, people are willing to show their support for same-sex marriage.

There is no way we could have ever done this without the love from friends and family. They know how truly thankful we are. However, there are a number of people we have never met who voiced their support – many of whom are HRC members. To those individuals we are not able to thank in person, we want you to know how much your words of encouragement mean to us. Our gratitude can only be repaid through continued efforts on our part to spread the message of marriage equality. We also want to thank the HRC, especially Fred Sainz and Charlie Joughin, for sharing our story. We are extremely excited about the future. The Nebraska state motto is “Equality before the law”. To everyone who supported us in this effort, you have brought us one step closer to seeing it put into practice, and for that we say THANK YOU!

-Ryan Lowry and Mitch Lee
