      We will find our place in the sun. The “uglies” are out in force because they know the gig is up. Hate is so yesterday.

      A. If Mr. Sims is to be taken at his word, Rep. Metcalfe is an asshole.

      B. I wish Rep. Sims every success in his efforts to bring marriage equality to the state of PA.

      C. Gotdayum! He is fine. Reminds me of Chris Salvatore, also. Another very handsome man.

      I grew up in Butler PA and I can tell you that it is filled with people like Rep. Metcalfe who believe that their religion and their Christ gives thematic free pass to spout the most hateful sentiments in the name of The Lord. Their religion is so deeply ingrained that any attempt to get them to see things differently is viewed with suspicion and fear. They believe they must evangelize the Word of The Lord under penalty of hellfire and damnation. It is their duty and obligation. This affords them with a self-righteousness and a superiority that is not only repugnant to the rest of us, but prevents them from bring open to new theological discussions, new translations of the Bible, and having to think for themselves. I am frankly shocked that more gay kids from Butler aren’t overdosing on the plethora of drugs that seem to permeate my old hometown or blowing their brains out with the thousands of huntin’ rifles present in nearly 2 out of every three homes. But I made it out and hope and pray that my LGBT sisters and brothers can continue to do so!

      Rep. Brian Sims is very handsome. I am always proud of lbgt folks in public roles. Way to go Brian!

      Queerbeck is right. PA has been described as Pittsburgh and Philly on the ends and Alabama in the middle.

      Well, let’s say “…SOME Republicans.” We had a Republican (Richard Tisei) gay, pro-choice, pro-gay marriage candidate here in Massachusetts running for a House seat in 2012. He probably would have won had not our awful democrat state machine put up a third(straw) candidate in the race. And, talking about “silencing” people, I am still appalled at how Obamacare was rammed down our throats at the last minute with an attitude of “you have to vote it before you know what’s in it.” Thank you Nancy Pelosi, a despicable politician. Many politicians are vile (and it’s not a partisan characteristic).

      Brian is simply gorgeous and a college football player at that, yummo! Hard to believe he’s single.
