    San Francisco police officer whose good looks earned him the nickname "Hot Cop of Castro" was on medical leave when he allegedly hit two pedestrians with his Dodge Charger, then abandoned his vehicle and ran away, police said. Officer Christopher Kohrs turned himself in to fellow officers at police headquarters Sunday, according to the San Francisco Police Department. He was arrested and later booked on suspicion of two felony counts of hit-and-run. Kohrs, a 7-year San Francisco police veteran, was off-duty at the time of the crash and on medical leave for an unrelated medical condition, police said. If Kohrs...

    ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars will not permit two men to dance as a couple during a special performance. An openly gay singer, Who Is Fancy (yes, that is what he calls himself), is set to perform his new song, “Boys Like You,” with Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor on the reality competition show’s November 23 episode. The song is about a man falling in love with another man, so the singer’s choreographer wanted to have two men dancing with each other in the performance. TMZ reports the network will not allow it.Sources say that that DWTS...

Isaiah 5:20 From the LGBT Out Magazine: This is the first time a sitting president has been photographed for the cover of an LGBT title, a historic moment in itself, and a statement on how much his administration has done to advance a singularly volatile issue that tarnished the reputations of both President Clinton and President Bush. It might have tarnished this president, too, but for his late-hour conversion in 2012, which...

But 'marriage' exists for the purpose of creating families and providing a stable environment for the raising of children- and deep down, everybody knows it...Government needs to step-away from the moral side of this topic -which is really none of it's concern- and issue ANY and all couples 'civil partnership' arrangements, as is done in -of all places- France.

    President Obama signed legislation repealing the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in 2011, but servicemen are still keeping silent on a related issue: Male-on-male rape. A new study released by the American Psychological Association says male rape is underreported in the U.S. military. A true approximation of the problem may even be “15 times higher than has been previously reported.” The APA’s conclusions, released Tuesday, were drawn from data spanning the 1980s until present. Its authors found cases of male Military Sexual Trauma, or MST, ranged over the years from .02 percent to 12 percent, with an average...

    So the Supreme Court has established same-sex marriage, and that will quiet the LGBT crowd, because, after all, they got what they wanted, right? Not even close. How about protections for LGBT people in jobs, jury duty, credit applications, housing, facilities that provide exhibitions, facilities that provide recreation, facilities that provide exercise, facilities that provide amusement and even facilities that provide gatherings? Already, theres a bill in Congress to do all those things and much more. It even would gut the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act so LGBT-based discrimination complaints could be brought against churches that follow the Bible,...

    The Mormon Church staked a deeper claim to middle ground in American society on Tuesday, advocating for compromises between protecting religious liberties and prohibiting discrimination, and criticizing Kentucky clerk Kim Davis for refusing to license gay marriages. The Mormons chose Oaks, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles that guides The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to give the speech. Oaks declared himself devoted to both church doctrine and the laws of a democratic society. But when conflicts between them arise and are decided, citizens of a democracy must follow court rulings, he said.

    Can someone really be “born” gay? Is there a “gay gene”? Does biology equal destiny?Clearly, the controversy over this issue is huge in our culture. While pro-gay activists and their allies want us to believe people are “born gay” and that sexual orientation is an unchangeable characteristic like race or eye color, a closer examination of the scientific evidence reveals that the “nature vs. nurture” debate over homosexuality is far from settled. At best, the evidence for a genetic and/or biological basis to homosexual orientation is inconclusive. In fact, since the early 1990s, numerous studies attempting to establish a genetic...

Michelson outlined these different types of sexualities in an article published yesterday titled, "What's A Skoliosexual?" He then defines "12 terms related to sexual and romantic identities that are beginning to receive more attention in the media but that are still regularly absent or erased from conversations currently taking place in popular culture." Among these terms is "Graysexual," which means "a magical place between asexual and someone who is sexual." There is...

    The German bishops continue their march towards schism. Today, on their own website, they published an apologia for same-sex marriage, crossing a whole new line in their battle to reform the Churchs basic moral teachings. In an essay titled Love Counts on Katholisch.de, theology student Simon Linder argues that since the societal climate in Germany has changed, one does not have to justify oneself anymore when defending the idea of marriage for all. Rather, says Linder, those opposed to same-sex marriages have to defend themselves. And he asks: Where does the Church have the idea that homosexuality is a...

    I suspected that there was something inherent in the roots of the word "Matrimony" which would establish it's meaning as being between a man and a woman. I believe a word can be better understood by looking up how it came to us from older languages, and so I consulted an online etymology dictionary. It said the word "Matrimony" is derived from the word "Mater", which means "Mother" in Latin. This is a clear indication that the intended purpose is to begat children.

Davis, through Staver, has taken the position that all the licenses issued since her refusal are invalid under the law, and that furthermore, she would have been breaking the law if she had issued them absent any direction from state lawmakers in Kentucky:

But more importantly, the concept of gaydar may be pretty harmful. It may -- big surprise here, guys -- just be an excuse to revel in harmful stereotypes about LGBTQ people. In a paper published in the Journal of Sex Research, University of Wisconsin-Madison psychologist William Cox argues that gaydar just isn't really a thing.

    The Kentucky county clerk who made herself a national celebrity by refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses was jailed Thursday for contempt of court. Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was taken into custody by U.S. marshals, according to reporters on the scene. In sending her to jail, U.S. District Judge David Bunning ignored the American Civil Liberties Union's request that Davis be fined to compel compliance with orders that she issue marriage licenses. ACLU attorney Heather Weaver, who is working on the case, said there was testimony about fundraising efforts on Davis' behalf, apparently a factor in the judge's decision...
