“I am very happy to see LGBT Ugandans fighting back! We LGBT Americans need to do the same and support LGBT Ugandans. Gay people deserve equality everywhere and certainly should not be murdered for loving their partners.”

Barry, in “Kill The Gays” Bill Supporter Scott Lively Being Tried For Crimes Against Humanity in U.S. Court


“The Times tried this ages ago and they were shocked to realize that just because some of their colomnists were popular didn’t mean people would bother to pay to read them. I could be wrong, but I think that Sullivan is overestimating how interesting people find him.”

Cam, in Andrew Sullivan Leaving The Daily Beast, Turning Blog Into Pay Site


“Why would anyone, whether male or female, enter into a civil union with another person but remain celibate? God declared in Genesis, and so says the church, that it was not good for man to be alone. God proceeded to look for a partner for man. He looked among the animals he had created but could find none that were acceptable. The best helpmate for a man is another human being.”

Al Magnuson, in Church Of England Welcomes Gay Bishops With Partners—So Long As They’re Celibate
“At least he’s being cast. Stop whining—if you have a gig that pays, don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson and Neil Patrick Harrison are not typecast except as “hot seducer,” “hot singer” and “funny twink.”

They are laughing all the way to the bank.

“I agree with Mx. Bond on a few points: Stephen Holden writes that Bond ‘mouths off about everything,’ then repeats a Tea Party crack [Bond made].  Complaining about the Tea Party isn’t exactly “mouth[ing] off about everything”: If he offered an example of  Bond whining about, say, aerosol cheese or Hot Pockets, I might see Holden’s point.

Holden notes that Bond sings several Melanie songs, but mentions some “signature” ones that Bond left out. Iis that intelligent theater critique? Is he also mad that Mx. Bond didn’t do Cagney impressions?

I’m also pretty sure that Holden’s “eager-to-offend” description translates to “tells the truth.”
