Meme: Stephen Amell Considers "Fifty Shades of Grey," Dave Franco and Zac Efron Are Frat Brothers, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson Is "Hot In…
Seriously? Please take time to meet Jack Andraka , who is 16, out, and a cancer researcher at John's Hopkins when he's not going to high school or dating boys. And that's really just the half of it.
The Croods is expected to win the box office this weekend with $42 million, followed by Olympus Has Fallen with $26 million. In West Virginia, the Lincoln Journal is under fire after publishing an anonymous voicemail left to the paper about a lesbian teacher allegedly fired for being gay. "We were really glad to hear that School Board is getting rid of them queers. The next thing is we need to get rid of all the n****rs, the spics, the kikes and the wops.
You know even them Catholics, they are wrong as baby eaters. We need to clear them people out and have good, white, God fearing Christians and everybody else needs to be put to death for their abominations. We'll keep Lincoln County white and right.
Thank you." A couple things: This is a really rural county, and I'm not surprised, these people exist, I hear them every day. But they are a tiny, shrinking minority. And Fairness WV thinks it can get HB 2856 passed this year, which would have prevented workers from being fired or evicted on the basis of their sexual orientation.
Finally, my local paper, The Register-Herald , only slightly less rural, ran a half page, above the fold in Section C today about American Academy of Pediatrics endorsing marriage equality. Jesse Tyler Ferguson is set to guest star in the Mary Tyler Moore reunion show of Hot In Cleveland . He'll play a "eccentric, esoteric character who speaks in intellectual terms about obscure movies." As the arguments for Prop 8 and DOMA approach, we're going to see a lot of news outlets trying to present "both sides" of civil rights, and failing miserably.
NPR committed journalistic malpractice with their profiles of my old friend Maggie Gallagher , saying It s easier to feel empathetic, Rauch says, knowing that Gallagher is not motivated by animus. They followed that up with NOM Chairman John Eastman , who says of marriage equality "It would forever sever the connection of marriage to procreation forever sever love from diapers. Love and diapers?
Isn't that Senator David Vitter's thing? USA Today joined in the "fair and balanced" thing with an article on the greatest opponents of civil rights, like drunk driving Cardinal Salvatore Cordileone , who says he has gay friends, and his position doesn't bother them. "It's a lot harder to be hateful or prejudiced against a person, or group of people, that one knows personally. When there is personal knowledge and human interaction, the barriers of prejudice and preconceived ideas come down." Do they?
Do they really, Cardinal? But in an expected piece of good news, Democratic Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear has vetoed the bill that would have allowed anyone to discriminate against, well, just about anybody, as long as they claimed it was because of a sincerely held religious belief. In a brilliant bit of political cover, he says he only did it because the law would have led to a fortune in lawsuits.
Do conservatives or liberals have better gaydar? After outrage with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie saying he was skeptical of a bill to ban reparative therapy, his office clarified his remarks. "Gov. Christie does not believe in conversion therapy.
There is no mistaking his point of view on this when you look at his own prior statements where he makes clear that people s sexual orientation is determined at birth. Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse have joined Townies , with Seth Rogen and Zac Efron , with Efron starring as a fraternity president and Franco as his best friend. I'm hoping for toga parties.
