Gay news, Supreme Court rules bigots be made public, European countries can decide on gay marriage themselves, Woman sues baptist church

25 06 2010

The highest court in the U.S, the Supreme Court, has ruled that the names of petition signers in Washington State Referendum 71 have to be made public. That means that people who signed an attempt to overturn a “pro gay” domestic partnerships law will be for all known as bigots. Conservatives tried to block the release of signatures fearing retributions, but all members of the court except for Clarence Thomas voted against them. Good news.

A High Court in Europe has ruled against 2 gays from Austria that wanted to get married. The court thinks the decision about marriage should be left up to the individual countries themselves and since there is a registered partnership in Austria that should be enough. As long the poor countries in Europe get their money from the Netherlands, Belgium and Scandinavia, they wanna have as little to do with our morals as possible and stay back in the Middle Ages.

An African-American woman sued her Covenant Baptist Church because they include gays and welcome same-sex unions. She says she gave$ 250.000 in past donations and wanted that back. She went to a gay wedding at the church just to see if it was real and she said it was disgusting. Now she dropped the lawsuit (because she had no chance in hell) and found herself a new bigot church.That from a woman who in her youth also was discriminated for being black. Unbelievable.





Gay news, Lady Elton/Rush, Cali IRS to recognize gay couples, straight men more accepting of gays, fake gay weddings in NY

6 06 2010

Anti-gay conservative Rush Limbaugh is marrying for the 4th time(Viva Viagra) and none-other-then Elton John is performing at his wedding in Palm Beach. Elton gets a million bucks for it, but still. I thought he had better morals, he does not need that money.

The IRS in California will start to recognize gay couples as a pair for tax purposes. This means that income earned by registered domestic partners will be treated as community property income for federal income taxes. Suppose that 1 partner makes 100K and the other 60K, they used to each file their own. Now they can each report 80K and this new law could reduce federal taxes for some domestic partners. Back in 2006 the IRS was against this law. A small step in the right direction.

Fo the first time in history the percentage of straight people morally accepting gay relationships has gone over 50%. The biggest change is in straight men 18-40 where is has gone up almost 20% in 2 years. Quite stunning. The NY times has 3 theories for this. 1 they know more and more out gay men so it is harder to discriminate. 2 men got more and more at ease with things that are “different” and see it is not a disaster like previously thought.3 Virulent homophobes are being exposed as gay a lot lately and men do not wanna be associated with this. Anti-gay is the old gay. Not cool. I think 1 is the most important.There is still a long way to go though because accepting of gays as an idea is a lot easier than accepting the act of being gay. So it is fine as long as they do not have to think about gay sex.

NY is hoping to get extra money by offering fake gay wedding ceremonies for partners that want to “dignify their partners status with a ceremony similar to real weddings.” Only 2 people showed up friday on the first day. Not a surprise, how can it be with dignity if it does not mean anything. It is almost an insult and copy-catting Las Vegas.





Gay news, soccer for gays?? Ellen ruined Idol, U.N blocked gay rights, anti-gay violence in Amsterdam

5 06 2010

Football.co.uk had an article on why America hates soccer. Reasons are the sport is too multi-cultural, not enough points are scored and it is too “gay”. This last part is because in the U.S the sport is mostly for girls, the fake diving to get a free ball is not manly and the screaming noises made by some players are emasculation. WTF?? I think soccer is not gay at all. There is not even an out top player. But some soccer players do come out in favor of gay men, like Beckham and Ronaldo recently. Maybe that is it??

According to the Christian Newswire Director American Idol was a bit of a flop this year because of good’ old gay Ellen. According to them you cannot make family oriented entertainment with gay people. Parents with good morals will not let their children watch gays. Ok that is why “Finding Nemo” with Ellen was a huge children’s hit. The show just sucked this year and apparently Ellen is not a great judge. But not because she is a lesbian.

The UN proved once more what a useless organization they are by having a Gay Human Rights Commission officially blocked from accreditation. The group was in limbo for years because conservative countries like Egypt, Qatar and Sudan blocked it because other gay groups criticised their anti-gay laws. Apparently the Middle-East and Africa is more important the U.S  and Europe.

Once again there was anti-gay violence against a gay man in Amsterdam last thursday. A man was spit on by 3 foreign(of course!!) teens and when he said something about it, he was called a dirty queer and got punched in the face. Anti-gay violence in Amsterdam got up with 23% in 2009. That is why Geert Wilders’ Party is popular by gays in the Netherlands.
