    There was a film entitled “Ship of Fools”
    The film dealt with how the targets of a final solution considered such a plan so horrific and unbelievable, they found DENIAL was the most rational response.
    Uganda is a good example of where government goes when fundamental religion becomes the power–a final solution concerning sexual outsiders.
    Most Muslim countries already implement the solution.

    Fat, happy, comfortable, LGB who continue to support current Republicanism, must be filled with internalized homophobia, racism and elitism. I don’t want to be on their ship. It’s one of the reasons I self identify as Queer–i’m an outsider and decline to have any part of the self indulgent aspects of “gay” life or the sour bitterness of current republicanism.

    the Massachusetts Data does not take into effect the Republicans running for Governor and Lt Governor are fairly liberal when it comes to LGBT rights, the Candidate for Lt Governor himself is openly gay and is the Senate Minority leader. Despite their positions on issues close to me, and the great lengths that Senator Tisei went to keep marriage rights off the ballot in 2008, I cant vote republican because I feel it would be saying to the RNC “It’s totally ok to [treat] minorities, gays and immigrants [badly] because it doesn’t matter, [they] will still vote for us!’

    I cant send that message to the rest of the US

    I was not an O’bama fan and had hoped to vote for Hillary Clinton…. alas, things did not work out. I voted for Obama and, to be truthful, I feel betrayed. I feel he is doing everything possible to hold back or stop any civil rights for gay men and women.

    I feel used and will NOT vote for him again. The GOP at least say to our faces that they hate us…. no pretending.

    Ron. The House passed ENDA and DADT; do you think the Republican House is going to do that?

    Yes, Obama has been a huge disappointment. The Republicans, on the other hand, think you have too many rights.

    Miles…. If Obama had wanted the done it would have happened. The man lied to get elected with things that he dangled in front of gays to get financial support…. I doubt he ever had any intention of allowing gays in the military.

    I am tired of words….. action is the only thing I believe in now days…

Legal activists call Hobby Lobby decision ‘radical’ and will require vigilance to protect LGBT equality

Some LGBT legal activists say today’s decision in a U.S. Supreme Court religious exemption case amounts to a “dangerous and radical departure from existing law that creates far more questions than it answers.”

Saying it is not providing a “shield for employers who might cloak illegal discrimination as a religious practice,” a 5 to 4 majority of the U.S. Supreme Court ruled today (June 30) that a federal law may not require a closely held commercial employer to provide health insurance coverage for contraception if that employer claims that to do so violates his or her personal religious beliefs.
