  • OREGON: Judge Denies NOM's Attempt To Delay Marriage Equality Arguments

    OREGON: Judge Denies NOM's Attempt To Delay Marriage Equality Arguments From Oregon United: Moments ago, Judge Michael McShane denied the National Organization for Marriage’s attempt to delay tomorrow’s scheduled oral arguments in federal lawsuit challenging Oregon’s marriage ban. Previously, no party had stepped up to defend the ban. But this morning, the D.C.-based NOM filed a motion requesting to intervene in the case, simultaneously urging the judge to delay Wednesday’s oral arguments as he considers the last-minute motion. With Judge McShane’s ruling today, oral arguments will proceed as scheduled tomorrow afternoon at the Federal Courthouse in Eugene. However, the judge will consider NOM’s motion to intervene in the case and has scheduled oral arguments on that issue for May 14th. If the motion to intervene is accepted, Judge McShane would[…]

  • Fired Lesbian Police Chief Gets Outpouring Of Support From Tiny South Carolina Town

    WASHINGTON -- It's been a rough week for Crystal Moore.

Freedom To Marry shares the handy dandy graphic above to help remember what all is going on.Freedom To Marry's Evan Wolfson recently spoke about the marriage equality cases currently before the various circuit courts of appeal:Presumably, we will soon - meaning, in a matter of months - have rulings from one or more of the federal appellate courts. Then there's the possibility of further procedures as to whether the three-judge panels in those courts that will rule will then go to the broader, full panel of the entire circuit courts [a process called en banc review].[…]

  • A Ridiculous Lie From Rafael Cruz

    A Ridiculous Lie From Rafael Cruz "All we have to do is turn on the news and every day we see more and more encroachment upon pastors from this administration. All they have to do is be aware of what’s happening around us and to be aware, for example, that in the city of San Antonio, if a pastor speaks on Romans 1, he could be even fined $500 a day until he retracts what he said. We’ve stayed at home and we allowed the wicked to elect wicked politicians to rule us. We get what we deserve, Rick. We need to get up the charge that God is giving us and move to the forefront and call this nation to repentance and call this nation[…]

  • Taboo Yardies, a Documentary and a Call to Our Humanity

    Taboo Yardies, a Documentary and a Call to Our Humanity I was born in Nigeria, now called Africa's biggest economy, of an American mother whose parents were from Jamaica and Trinidad, and so, the lives of gay people in the former British colonies that are my heritage are typically not discussed, valued or understood with the lens of humanity, realness and frankness. Similar to how mental illness that is dealt with-in Africa, being gay is a taboo, a secret and seen as shame. In this vain, we avoid their humanity.My life in Nigeria during my growing years had a few lesbians in my high school, they were not open but we all knew who they were. And my college years in the US was really the place to actually spend[…]

    Open this weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival. Executive producer: Alec Baldwin. Variety has the story:When husband-and-wife directing team Sheila Canavan and Michael Chandler approached Barney Frank about making a documentary, their pitch sounded lighthearted. In late 2011, Frank was preparing to retire from his Massachusetts seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, after a 40-year career in public office. “It was going to be a nostalgic look and what it’s like making the transition,” says Frank, 74, on a recent phone call from Maine where he spends a fair portion of his time now.

  • How to cook perfect bacon

    How to cook perfect bacon Ok, who doesn't love bacon?The smell, the taste, the perfect breakfast meat...But we don't all do it great.Some microwave bacon - which is fast but not always great; some fry it - but it can burn easy if the fat cooks slow while the meat cooks fast.Here's a tried and true method from America's Test Kitchens:First spread out your bacon evenly in a pan on high heat. (Two rules of thumb for however you like your bacon are: always start with a hot pan and never overcrowd it), and cover the bacon with water. You want just enough water to cover the bacon. As Bryan Roof, the chef in this video, explains, water keeps the initial cooking temperature low, which[…]

    Russia looks to mandate fingerprinting of HIV+ people A bill has been introduced in the Russian legislature that would require the fingerprinting of HIV+ people.RT reports:Roman Khudyakov[State Duma deputy Roman Khudyakov] explained he came up with the idea because sometimes infected people change their names and disappear from the state system. Khudyakov says fingerprinting would make it impossible. In addition, universal fingerprinting would make it easier to fight crime, reduce the amount of bureaucratic red tape, and solve many social problems where quick identification is often required.The bill on universal fingerprinting was drafted by the Liberal Democratic party in August last year. It orders every Russian resident, regardless of citizenship, to register at their place of permanent residence and undergo fingerprinting. The current bill suggests those who refuse[…]
