I’ll add California wine and ANYTHING owned by the Mormons. Andrew Adam Caldwell said on Facebook: If we are serious about marriage equality, all “domestic partners” should figure out exactly what dollar-amount of benefits they are losing out on in federal benefits (and in non-gay-marriage/DP states–state benefits) and then REFUSE TO PAY exactly that amount in federal (and state/local) taxes. Don’t refuse to pay ALL taxes, simply deduct the amount we are denied. Call it out as taxation without representation.

Died Together – Remembered Separately – Hikind: Holocaust memorial should only honor Jews

ADAMANT: Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind yesterday argues against the inclusion of non-Jewish victims.- NY Post

ADAMANT: Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind yesterday argues against the inclusion of non-Jewish victims.- NY Post

HIKIND: “These people are not in the same category as Jewish people with regards to the Holocaust,” Hikind said following a press conference at the memorial. “It is so vastly different. You cannot compare political prisoners with Jewish victims.”

“The Holocaust is a uniquely Jewish event,” said Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), whose mother is a Holocaust survivor and only Jews persecuted during the Nazi reign should be honored at a Holocaust memorial in Brooklyn.

The Last Pariah: Prayers for Bobby; the Pope; Gays in Iran & Ethiopia; & Our Troops Here & Overseas

Lifetime

Lifetime

pa⋅ri⋅ah /pəˈraɪə/ [puh-rahy-uh] –noun

  1. an outcast.
  2. any person or animal that is generally despised or avoided.
  3. (initial capital letter) a member of a low caste in southern India and Burma.

Origin:
1605–15; < Tamil paraiyar, pl. of paraiyan lit., drummer (from a hereditary duty of the caste), deriv. of parai a festival drum

We are the last pariah.

All over the world gays and lesbians are facing the cruel reality that they will never be accepted by their societies in their lifetimes.

  • Gay men and lesbians in Islamic countries face torture and death. Two young gay men were hanged in Iran in 2005.

The Christmas angel tells us: ”Fear not, for I bring you good news of great joy for all people.” The Pope, on the other hand, has been using this Christmas season to spread entirely the opposite message, a message of fear and exclusion that seems more bad news than good.

For, apparently, gay people threaten the planet in a comparable way to the destruction of the rainforest. I guess the idea is that if we all were gay, then we wouldn’t be making any babies. Yes, it’s a bit like saying that if we all were to become celibate priests we wouldn’t be making any babies either. Except that would mean the Catholic church has itself become a threat to the planet. OK, that’s a cheap shot. – Fraser

Ethiopian Flag

Ethiopian Flag

ADDIS ABABA (AFP) — Religious leaders in Ethiopia on Monday urged lawmakers to amend the country’s constitution to ban homosexuality in a move they argue could further strengthen existing codes.At a meeting in the Ethiopian capital, nearly a dozen religious figures, including heads of Ethiopia’s Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestant churches, adopted a resolution against homosexuality, which they termed as “the pinnacle of immorality.”

With the Prop 8 and similar measures passing in other parts of America, many suffered from anti-gay violence in 2008 & statistics show rise in reported hate-based crimes.

Tonight, Prayers for Bobby airs on Lifetime and portrays the true story of Bobby Griffith a young gay man who struggles with his homosexuality and his ultra-religious mother – and ultimately commits suicide. But that’s not how the story ends. I was excited to see my old ACT-UP friend Dan Butler (Friends) play a sympathetic priest who directs Bobby’s mother Mary Griffith (played by Sigourney Weaver) to a P-FLAG group in this TV movie.

Young gays & lesbians are four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. If you are a young person who is struggling with their sexuality, you are not alone. If you are a parent of a young LGBT child – love them, don’t shun them. If you are having trouble dealing with your child, seek help. Call P-FLAG. Then once you have “picked yourself up and dusted yourself off” call your local Congressperson or Representative to support LGBT causes. In what our President calls “The New Era of Responsibility,” it is up to us to make homophobia a thing of the past.

Now I need to run to find and scan my pictures of my mother and I marching with P-FLAG from 1979 – 2006. My mom has taken a break from marching since many of her old friends in the organization are now gone or too old to march. I’ll be posting these pics and more ACT-UP pics over the next few days.

Gay Cousin Teddy on Equality Matters – A Facebook LGBTQ Political Action

Facebook Political Action

Facebook Political Action

Gay Cousin Teddy reports about the Facebook political action of which many (including myself) have been part.

During this historic week, thousands will be changing their picture and status on Facebook and other social networking sites in order to draw attention to marriage equality. The hope is to draw attention to the marriage debate and the reasons why marriage equality is important to the LGBT community. The goal is to raise awareness to the 1138 rights and privileges afforded to married couples. The hope of course is that more people will recognize this as a civil rights issue and not that of an argument of forcibly changing religious doctrine. – Gay Cousin Teddy

Obama Tells Gay Community to Respect Choice of Warren at Inauguration

FAT CHANCE!

Hey Obama! How is this CHANGE? Remember Anita Bryant? She stirred up the fury and wrath of the LGBTQ Community which became the touchstone of the late 70’s movement. After Campaigning With Your ‘Ex-Gay’ McClurkin, this is the first post-election disappointment of which I was expecting.

Perhaps it’s time to take our anger to DC and rain on the Inauguration. Let’s move the Day Without a Gay Day to January 20, 2009!

Substantial Lobbying Activity: In general, no organization, including a church, may qualify for IRC section 501(c)(3) status if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation (commonly known as lobbying). An IRC section 501(c)(3) organization may engage in some lobbying, but too much lobbying activity risks loss of tax-exempt status.
