'They're about to wreck!'

This is priceless. A parade of yahoos in pickup trucks waving Confederate flags gets into a wreck, while the videographer gleefully narrates.

God don't like ugly!"

What Mother Church needs is not nicer words but change in doctrine

It would be nice if the bishops had the grace to use that text. But what is needed is doctrinal change, and there is no evidence that the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church have any intention of budging. Life is just too short.

Meet Louisiana's first same-sex married couple

I can't get enough of these joyous pictures.

Parents of the week supported their 8-year-old at NYC Pride

He danced down the street in style for a couple of miles.

EHN: 'massive resistance' to SCOTUS marriage ruling won't work

Amen, Congresswoman.

U.S. officials take part in global Pride events

BTW, congrats to Michael Lavers on being named the Blade's new International Editor.

Hermaphrodite fish - quick, alert Bryan Fischer!

Alternatively, you can celebrate the wonders of nature and get on with your day.

Mozambique legalizes gay sex

Some good news from Africa.

Colbert reads from SCOTUS dissents

Worry about this for a second

LGBT Texans carry on the fight

With help from their friends, of course.

A county clerk who needs to lose her public paycheck

Dear Ms. Lang, take a hike.

Justice Scalia, not moving on

Dear Nino, rant away to your heart's content.

SCOTUS allows Texas abortion clinics to remain open

Some good news, if temporary, on the reproductive choice front.

Striking a blow for community-police relations

A playful moment from NYC Pride. Breitbart isn't happy at all.

Charles M. Blow: My murdered cousin had a name

An eloquent piece that reminds us of those who did not live to see this day, and of the disparate impact of hatred.

After marriage ruling, Southern states fall in line

"These are the days of miracle and wonder." (Paul Simon, "The Boy in the Bubble," Graceland)

Bristol Palin, abstinence evangelist, preggers with second baby out-of-wedlock

Inquisitr reports. I would show you a pic of Ms. Palin, but it just seems distasteful.

Our friend Charlie Rounds writes on FB:

This is the face of the gay haters - a woman who has lied over and over again about "abstinence" while having sex with multiple partners and then saying that gay people are disgusting. She is the face of the child-raping, multiple divorce, inter-racial gay hating Republicans and I am tired of all of you! As Margaret would say "Let's feed the poor" Clarence Thomas.

The wishful thinking of David Brooks

I see no evidence that this claim by David Brooks is more than wishful thinking: "Social conservatives are well equipped to repair this fabric, and to serve as messengers of love, dignity, commitment, communion and grace." There is nothing loving, dignified, nor graceful in their anti-gay slanders. Nor do I recognize my community in the description by Brooks.

Billo not feeling the rainbow

Please remind me of what O'Reilly said about the wrong-and-insulting guy waving a big Confederate flag outside the White House a while back.
