Letter to the Salt Lake Weekly
We have dozens of Utah families living in homeless shelters, and the leadership of the LDS Church has led a $20 million crusade off through the Nevada desert to California. Read below the fold...
Squandering the good will that they have gained through their humanitarian efforts, they claim that the idea of the marriage of Jim and Bob of Arbuckle at the Colusa County Courthouse is an event of cosmic proportions.

In defense of black voters voting at least 2 to 1 for California's Proposition 8 rides Jasmyne A. Cannick. Her argument is that white gays aren't "sufficiently sensitive" to the fact that the word and concept of "rights" was trademarked and copywritten by black churches in the 60's. Therefore, any use of that word by white gays is offensive to the black community, including black lesbians like Cannick. I parachuted in to hearing her laughingly dismiss outraged callers on Talk of the Nation. Read below the fold...

Al Gore isn’t running for President because he wouldn’t be able to tell the truth, and how sad is that? He has now clearly spoken out on another inconvenient truth, that homosexuals are citizens too and are entitled to the same rights as everyone else. (video after the jump) Read below the fold...

Way to go, Judge Hanson. Let's hope he survives his next election; fundies have long memories about this sort of thing. But nonetheless, Iowa has an important opportunity here and we'll see if a Heartland state can truly support the concept behind the 14th and other amendments. 'Equal under the law' is really simple, when you get down to it. Read below the fold...

I'm sorry that the husband in this case is such a lecherous pedophile, and that I have to agree with the logic of the SCOTUS. He's just proving the stereotype of polygamists by being incapable of waiting to get his hands on his sister-in-law before she's 18. I totally grok that "fundamentalist" Mormons like him really just want to keep a harem of teenage girls while sucking off welfare programs to support them, and that abuse and domestic violence runs rampant in communities where this practice occurs.

Via our good pal, and creator of the term 'blogtopia,' The Manly Marsupial Skippy of the Forrest, we discover this exciting blog and a project that seems to be getting a lot of attention. Attention Democratic operatives with the good sense to study history and learn from it: a lot of us out here will do this kind of work for you, for free. I too am sick and tired of bringing squirt guns to a knife fight:

Let's just make it simple. John, here's what you say: I support full and equal rights for all Americans, period. That includes the right to marry, regardless of orientation. That's not hard. As Pam notes, "moral values" handwringing and wishywashy "my daughter is for it before I was against it" really won't help you. Fact: gay-haters will never vote for you anyway. Fact: you can ride a huge wave of mobilized, loyal to the death gays and progressives (see: Dean) if you come out on the right side of this issue. Read below the fold...

While we're on the subject of inconvenient truths, let's face up to this one: it's time for the Democratic Party to stop being chickenshit about gay marriage. Read below the fold...
