Last week, an amendment passed in North Carolina banning marriage for same-sex couples. Some people decry this as short-sighted at best, and completely bigoted, hateful, stupid, dumb, and unfair in general. I am one of those people.
When President Obama publicly announced his support of gay marriage on May 9, there seemed to be little question: Obama has the gay vote locked down. Though, of course, not all gays care about gay marriage, nor will all gays be voting Democrat come November. Yes, gay Republicans do exist. Even in the blue states.
Reportedly, Bristol Palin received death wishes for her recent blog post about Obama's support for gay marriage. The 21-year-old plastic-surgery fiend took to her blog after the prez's announcement last week, accusing him of deferring to Sasha and Malia when making policy decisions.
Well, well, well — how the mighty have fallen! Or at least the semi-mighty. Just one day after President Obama voiced his support of same-sex marriage, Mitt Romney's dark past has come back to haunt him. Could this be a little karmic retaliation for opposing gay marriage, Mitt?
"I could never be a politician. But as uncomfortable as I would be doing so, I have no problem with Obama's long-planned 'change of heart.' This dude's made huge, measurable strides for gay rights, and if being coy about his plans for gay marriage for a few years was needed to get him elected, then so be it. LGBT persons will be better off, and federal same-sex marriage recognition will come sooner because of it."
President Obama stunned the nation yesterday by announcing that he supports gay marriage. This is the first time in history that a U.S. President has come out in support of the controversial topic. Celebrities immediately took to Twitter to react to the groundbreaking news.
We all knew that President Barack Obama backed gay marriage in philosophy a long time ago. But in a historic announcement today, he finally came out and said he thinks same-sex marriage "should be legal," one day after North Carolina disappointingly passed Amendment 1, which says the state only recognizes marriage between a man and a woman.

Kirk Cameron on CNN's Piers Morgan's show discussing his beliefs that homosexuality is "unnatural" "detrimental" and "ultimately destructive" is just that, ultimately destructive to our GLBT youth. This rejection by the parents and other adult caregivers of our children has a similar effect on a child as the bullying in school that these same kids suffer at the hands of other youth.
Kirk Cameron, Growing Pains actor and born-again evangelist, recently appeared on Piers Morgan, where he said he believes "homosexuality is unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive to foundations of civilization."
Quite frankly after watching this video of Kirk Cameron on Piers Morgan last night, I was disgusted. The Born Again Christian was asked by Piers what his stance was on gay marriage and homosexuality and he replied by saying it was "unnatural, detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."
What does your favorite Oscar movie say about you? How do you land an honest-to-goodness prince? She's gonna let him hook up with other chicks. What does faithfulness really mean? Are you dating the opposite of your type? Maybe you should. Gay weddings have different etiquette than straight ones. Online dating may not be as efficient as we once thought. What you need to know about "peacocking." Don't over-text him, for real. What about missed connections is so fascinating?
A federal appeals court has ruled that California's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, setting up a showdown in the Supreme Court. The state instituted the ban after voters narrowly passed Proposition 8 in 2008. But Tuesday's panel affirmed by a 2–1 vote that a lower-court judge was correct when he said the referendum violated the U.S. Constitution.
Are Angie and Brad changing their tune about marriage? Seems like this might actually be the case for one of Hollywood's hottest couples who, for a long time, have scoffed at the idea of getting married when it's not legal for everyone, and have said they wanted to wait until marriage equality passed for all.
A number of Episcopalians have been unhappy with the denomination's recent liberal changes, things like a shift toward pro-choice views and acceptance of gay marriage, even ordaining openly homosexual bishops. In response, the Catholic Church is opening up a nationwide diocese to ex-Episcopalians who would like to join Catholicism as a group; a priest and congregation, so church leaders and members who are already comfortable with one another will have a chance to stick together. They will be expected to abide by the Catholic Church's governance, support their conservative views and acknowledge the pope. But since priests in the Episcopal Church have never had to practice celibacy, and many are already married with children, the Catholic Church is granting an exemption to their long-practiced celibacy code... but is it fair? And should it even be allowed in the faith?
After tying the knot five years ago in London, actor Alan Cumming and his husband, commercial illustrator Grant Shaffer, decided to not just renew their vows, but to get married all over again! The couple had a second wedding in New York recently, where gay marriage became legal last year.
