Three cases highlighted that not everyone is comfortable with the gays.

For whatever reason, there has been a backlash against the gays in public.

First up, according to the Daily Telegraph, a loophole (ha?) was exposed in the Greece's law outlawing gay marriage. So, the enterprising mayor of Tilos, a tiny island in the Aegean, decided to marry some gay couples. Now, Justice Minister on the nearby island of Rhodes (not to be confused with R is charging Mayor Tasos Aliferis with something akin to dereliction of duty, which has a jail time up to 5 years. So why did Aliferis go forward with these weddings? Did he want to make drum up tourism business on his island? Is he just into the gay cause? Or is he a patsy in a vast gay conspiracy? Our guess is a combo of the first 2. Greece have been touchy about gay stuff lately. The island of Lesbos has had it with its naming being co-opted by homosexual women, sorry by gayelle still sounds lame. 300 Spartans may be called into service, so stay tuned.

There are some people in New York that are less than thrilled with Governor David Patterson's recognition of gay unions from other states. Per News Channel 13, a Christian group finds the governor's decision to be near-sighted. The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) does not agree with David Paterson's vision on the subject. Per the ADF, some Republican state senators are signing their names to the suit and are looking for a new perspective. We'll keep a close watch on this case.

And 2 Seattle Mariners fans are upset with their treatment by the organization. MSN reports that Sirbrina Guerrero and her date were tossed out of a game in late May because they were making out, possibly with petting. The game resulted in a 3-5 loss to the lame Boston Red Sox and could possible result in a lawsuit for the M's for discrimination against the lesbian kiss. The official line is that no one is really supposed to be getting their swerve on at a ball game (unless they're in a luxury box, there you can do coke off a strippers hip while burning American flags in bald eagle nests while having sex with al Qaeda). But the usher told them that a woman complained for the sake of the children. Isn't watching two gals make out America's favorite past time (more people probably watch Girls Gone Wild than the All Star Games combined)? That's usually a way to get the biggest cheer almost anywhere there's a bunch of dudes (like at a sporting event). Haven't hardcore fans in Seattle suffered enough with the Seahawks Super Bowl loss and the Sonics skipping town and A-Rod, Griffey, and Randy Johnson leaving for greener pastures?
