Coming to their senses: In a major reversal by the United Methodist Church, the religious body overturned the defrocking of a pastor, Frank Schaefer, for officiating a same-sex wedding for his son.

We’ve seen the disruption to couples and families throughout the U.S. when courts have first allowed same-sex marriage only to have those marriages subsequently called into question by another court. I anticipate the U.S. Supreme Court will give finality to this issue in their next term.
Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen • In a statement following a court ruling that allowed same-sex marriages to take place in the state. Van Hollen, by the way, was one of the people causing the “disruption,” asking for an emergency order to stop the weddings.

The American Family Association has suggested that people not open letters sent to the organization using the new stamp dedicated to gay-rights icon Harvey Milk, and to instead mark the mail return to sender. So here’s what you do. You send donations to the organization in the mail using this stamp. If they cash the check, call them out on it. (ht Mediaite)

This one political elitist put his own personal views above the will of the people, arrogantly ruling that all 2.7 million voters were ‘irrational’ in their commonsense belief that the ideal environment for every child is having both a mother and a father committed to each other and to their children in marriage.
Gary Glenn, President of the American Family Association of Michigan • Ripping the court decision to overturn the state’s ban on gay marriage. It’s OK, Gary. Your kind is dying out.

In an effort to emphasize the sanctity of marriage in a state where a judge just struck down a ban on same-sex marriage, Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick made this epic typo.

andywarnercomics:

I’m reblogging this because yesterday Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed the anti-gay bill I talked about in this comic into law.

This bill includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for gay sex. It includes LIFE IMPRISONMENT for being in a gay marriage. The directors of any NGOs (including Sexual Minorities Uganda) found guilty of “promotion of homosexuality” face SEVEN YEARS IN JAIL.

This is the real stuff, people. Many of the folks I drew in this comic were just named directly by a tabloid newspaper and are fearing an imminent witch hunt.

A lot of the blame for this falls squarely on the shoulders of one man, Scott Lively, and his global campaign of homophobia. Please go read the full comic I did last month for the Center for Constitutional Rights that explains their legal case against him.

Actual quote from Scott Lively, from this week: “I would rather the Ugandans had followed the Russian anti-propaganda model which reflects my philosophy of preventing the mainstreaming of homosexuality with the minimum limitation on personal liberties.…”

The CS Monitor has more backstory on this terrible situation, and the Americans who helped stoke the fire.

Now that this law has been enacted, we are beginning an internal review of our relationship with the Government of Uganda to ensure that all dimensions of our engagement, including assistance programs, uphold our anti-discrimination policies and principles and reflect our values.
Secretary of State John Kerry • Discussing the possibility of reviewing the U.S. relationship with the Ugandan government, after Uganda enacted a law which imposes harsh penalties against homosexuals. The president of the country, Yoweri Museveni, said this in an interview with CNN: “What sort of people are they? I never knew what they were doing. I’ve just been told recently and what they do is terrible. Disgusting.”
