Newt Gingrich Explains Why Marriage Equality Should Be Legal (without meaning to)

On January 25th, Newt Gingrich held a conference call for some of his religious supporters. During the call, Newt was explaining why the Religious Right should be supporting him for President. Interestingly enough, Newt brought up an idea that I had years ago about marriage equality, but I have neither the money nor the connections to pursue this idea. The following is a quote from that call.

It’s pretty simple: marriage is between a man and a woman. This is a historic doctrine driven deep into the Bible, both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, and it’s a perfect example of what I mean by the rise of paganism. The effort to create alternatives to marriage between a man and a woman are perfectly natural pagan behaviors, but they are a fundamental violation of our civilization.

You may have stopped reading that quote during the first or second sentence. If you did, please go back and read the entire quote. Believe me, it will be worth the bile that forms whenever you think of Newt talking about marriage rights. Go on. Read the whole quote. Continue reading

Saying Goodbye to 365gay | Queer Landia

365gay news

 

This is a very sad day. The gay news site 365gay.com is coming to an end. I am not sure of the reasons for this, as Logo should be able to sustain the blog financially. I have been reading 365gay for years. I love the format of the site. I also love the voices and opinions.

When I heard about Queerty closing, I wasn’t really upset. I had never really read the site. With 365gay closing, I am deeply upset. I go to 365gay.com at least 3 times a day to catch up on news. I like the layout of the blog and the style. I enjoy it when the readers post their comments and the writers reply. I love the simplicity of the older layout (the new one is still nice, but not as simplistic).

I don’t know what I am going to do now to get my recaps of gay news events. I enjoyed being able to get an overview of the events going on in our community with links for further reading. I enjoyed the sometimes snarky way the writers would respond to readers and vice verse.

Can you suggest any sites that offer an easy to find overview of gay events with links to more information (outside of the QueerLandia family of sites)? If so, please leave me a comment so I can check out the site.

For now, I bow my head an offer a few moments of silence for the memory of a wonderful site.

Hi 365gay readers,

Some of you have been reading since 365gay was started as a Canadian publication in the 1990s. Some of you have been reading since Logo took over, in 2006. Some of you are newer – last year, last month, last week.

I myself started with 365gay in April 2007 and it’s been quite a ride.

With the help of James Withers, who’s been freelancing for the site since September 2007 when he began writing for our election blog Visible Vote, and an incredibly dedicated, talented group of freelance writers, reporters, columnists and interns, 365gay has covered almost five years of amazing gay and national news.

Now, it’s coming to an end.

Wedding Wars: Zander Does Movies

This movie came out 5 years ago, but I only recently found the movie on Netflix and added it to my list. I started watching this expecting a cheesy movie about marriage rights and how bigoted the other side was in this debate. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised by a beautiful movie (that was sometimes cheesy) that dealt with both sides of the gay marriage debate. The movie did not have a happy ever after ending, but it did have great moments.

In the movie, Eric Dane plays a speech writer (Ben) for a Republican governor in Maine. His character is also dating the governor’s daughter and proposes to her at the beginning of the movie. John Stamos plays Eric Dane’s sorta-out gay brother (Shel). Once the engagement is official, Ben’s fiance asks him to get his brother to be the wedding planner. From there, the movie gets going on a fun ride that is well worth watching. Continue reading
