4 responses to “Santorum’s not the worst on gay issues”

  1. Chuck Anziulewicz

    Ever since Massachusetts became the first state to allow Gay couples to legally marry, hundreds of thousands of Gay couples across the United States have either legally married or had their civil unions or domestic partnerships officially registered. But Rick Santorum has expressly stated that those legal contracts will be officially made “null and void” under his administration. He has made it clear that he wants ONE law to define marriage in the United States, a law that will leave Gay couples with NO legal benefits and protections. That make the prospect of a Santorum administration an intensely personal issue for Gay Americans, even though he prefers not to dwell on the issue.

    Terry, of course, is unwilling to own up to the vile history cloaked by his faith-based traditions. He clearly is correct with his no-brainer observation about the evil of slavery, but does not admit how the practice of slavery was condoned and justified by the so-called traditional values he would have us respect.

    Calling Randall Terry a Democrat is absurd. He’s a Right Wing Extremist, of the Theocrat/Fascist kind, the antithesis of what the Democrats stand for. Anybody can register their name with either party, that doesn’t mean they represent them.

    Rick Santorum says he is against terrorists but when you listen to his speech yesterday in South Carolina you can’t tell him from a terrorist. Listen to what he said.

Supreme Court upholds health insurance subsidies critical to people with HIV

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 6 to 3 decision, upheld the right of the federal government to provide health care insurance subsidies to people with low income in states that have chosen not to participate in the Affordable Care Act by setting up insurance “exchanges.”

The decision, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, is a big political victory for the Obama administration and a big relief for people with low incomes, including many people with HIV.

Abercrombie case: LGBT and evangelicals on the same side

It is a rare occasion when LGBT legal activists find themselves on the same side of a case as the conservative Christian Legal Society and the National Association of Evangelicals. It is also rare to find LGBT legal activists on the same side as conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and his fondness for hewing to the original explicit language of a law.

But so it was with EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch June 1, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that an employer cannot escape federal law’s requirement to accommodate a job applicant’s religious practices by claiming the applicant never told the employer about his or her religious practices.
