Newt Gingrich Fears Rise of Gay Paganism

It's true, most of us are warlocks

Sometimes I wonder if Newt Gingrich is actually even half as ridiculous a person as he's made himself out to be over these past few months. I guess I could wonder the same about all the Republican frontrunners (with the exception, maybe, of Romney, who's more impotent than insane), but Newt stands out again and again as a bastion of unadulterated crazy. You've got stuff like the plans for a moon base (yeah, that's how fiscal conservatism  works), and then you've got stuff like calling gay marriage the hallmark of a pagan civilization.

Love; the good, the bad and the ugly.

Love is a complicated subject that everyone has in one part of their life or another. We spend our lives falling in love, loosing life, hating love and loving love. It is one of the only feelings that cannot be controlled by any means and just hits you like a truck out of nowhere. Even those who say they do not believe in life, could fall into it any minute and be on the road to the ride of their lives.

Cynthia Nixon's Bisexuality

Is claiming that identity more controversial than saying gayness is a choice?

Cynthia Nixon needs to add a word to her currently-lacking vocabulary: bisexual. In a recent interview with the New York Times Magazine, Nixon said “I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay, and gay is better,” adding that for her, being gay was a choice.

Not surprisingly, Nixon’s comments riled gay activists, who feel that proving gayness inherent in a gay person’s genes will hasten the march for full equality. Additionally, most gay people feel that they were born gay, or at least have learned that's what they ought to say; Nixon’s comments were shocking because they are not a part of carefully-crafted linguistic choices of most gay people.

Bunches To Love

I was raised by stoic Wisconsin farmpeople who taught me many important lifeskills: how to hoe beets, use a chainsaw at age ten and (consequently) how one might say “oh it's barely bleeding at all” in both German and English. And while my life experiences include both drinking warm milk directly from the cow and accidentally driving a tractor into a brick wall (“it's barely bleeding at all” once again came in handy) watching tv was not really part of our family togetherness experience.

In fact, because my father believed that the only activities that had value were character building activities, we were not allowed to watch tevee unless we read the equivalent amount of time in a nonfiction book, presented an oral report on what we learned from the book at the dinner table, and explain why/how watching this tv show would help us meet our life goals.

Santorum States that Having Same-sex Parents is Worse Than a Convict

Seriously?

Rick Santorum who is avidly known as being antigay has continued on his string on antigay pronouncements while on the trail in New Hampshire, stating that a man in jail would be a better parent than a same-sex couple.

The Los Angeles Times reported from Manchester, New Hampshire that Santorum claimed to quote an anti-poverty expert while explaining his case.

Santorum went on to state that that he had found that even fathers in ail who had abandoned their kids were better than no father at all to have in the child’s life. To quote Santorum later following this, he stated according to an article in The Advocate, that if a same-sex couple were to raise a child, they would be, “robbing the children of something that they need, they deserve, they have a right to. You may rationalize that this isn’t true, but in your own life and in your own heart, you know it’s true.”
