SCOTUS Says 'I Do' To Gay Marriage!

The Supreme Court says 'I Do' to Gay Marriage. June 26, 2015

by Roy Steele

Washington, DC:  Today the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that state gay marriage bans violate the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, which guarantees due process and equal protection under the law, for all Americans. The Supreme Court invalidated state gay marriage bans, and extended same-sex marriage, to all fifty states and territories, of the United States.

In a 5-4 decision, Associate Justices Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, ruled in favor of marriage equality, and Chief Justice John Roberts, and Associate Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito, dissented from the majority.

I know that a big portion of my weekend will be spent binge watching Season 3 of the Netflix original series Orange Is The New Black (OITNB), a funny, thought-provoking and powerful series about a diverse group of inmates serving time in a women's prison.

If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t had a chance to watch OITNB, Orange is the New Black, is the terrific and outrageous, critically-acclaimed and award-winning series from Emmy® Award-winner Jenji Kohan (Weeds).

Does Gay Pride + Gay Marriage = Summer of Love

Will this summer be the summer of love? A picture of the crowd gathered in Dublin, Ireland on May 22 , 2015 waiting to hear news about the gay marriage referendum.

Here we are a week into June of 2015, and like you, I’m wondering whether this will be known as the “gay summer of love.” It’s just a matter of weeks before we find out if the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that marriage is a fundamental right for all Americans. All we can do right now is wait.

On May 22, 2015 the citizens of Ireland voted overwhelmingly to amend their Constitution, and allow gay marriage. Ireland was the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. Does the Irish vote portend good things to come here in the states? I certainly hope so.

It's Memorial Day, and the graphic has a patriotic red and blue theme, with an American flag and a rainbow flag flying, and the inscription says "Let's remember the brave LGBT members of the Armed Forces who lost their lives fighting to defend our liberty and freedom.

by Roy Steele

We resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for equality, liberty, and justice for all.

Memorial Day is our remembrance day, when we honor and remember the brave members of the Armed Services who lost their lives while serving their country.

TV Talk: Morally Bankrupt Huckabee Rushes To Duggar's Defense

Mike 'Holy Horny' Huckabee and reality television star Josh Duggar of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" with the text "two faced" above Huckabee's head, and "Hello my name is Morally Bankrupt" below the image. size= 650px by 650px

Huckabee and the Duggar’s are counting on “praying away” the child predator problems, just like they counsel people to “pray away the gay,” which has been found to be soul destroying and totally ineffective.

by Roy Steele

Right-wing extremists and so-called social conservatives never fail to disappoint.

That psuedo-Christian pack of wolves falsely claim that gay and transgender people should be stripped of our civil rights, because we’re all child predators. Is it a surprise that one of their own, a star of an alleged Christian family reality television show, got away with being an actual child predator?

I think not.

In Touch magazine reports that reality television star Josh Duggar, of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” molested several young girls when he was a teenager.

Gay Marriage: What Does The Bible Really Say

What is marriage? What does the Bible really say about marriage?  Image size=650px by 650px A photograph of a white wedding cake, and text that asks "what is marriage?"

Is religious freedom and bigotry synonymous?

I wrote an article for “Medium” entitled “What does the Bible really say about marriage.”
Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) excitedly told a crowd of evangelical Christians that “There is a liberal fascism that is going after believing Christians who follow the biblical tenets on marriage.” 
The “liberal fascists” in this case is the gay community, and Senator Cruz and his supporters are the “believing Christians” who are under attack. 
Excuse me while I look for my sympathy, and fetch my violin. 
Poor Senator Cruz was feeling victimized.
