This Week's Quote

Gays aren't threatening the sanctity of marriage, DIVORCE is. If you want to keep marriage holy and pure and traditional, ban divorce. Sure, the murder rates will go up . . .

Blanchett and the Record

So actress Cate Blanchett told Variety she's had "many" relationships with women.

For the record, not one of them was with me.

Sigh.

I think God is a callous bitch not making me a lesbian. I'm deeply disappointed by my sexual interest in men.

Driskell v. Homosexuals

In case you missed it, you've been sued.

Sylvia Ann Driskell recently filed suit against homosexuals.  All of us.  In a seven-page, handwritten petition submitted to the U.S. District Court of Omaha, the 66-year-old Nebraskan identified herself as the ambassador for the plaintiffs, God and Jesus Christ.

You'd think they could afford better representation.

Citing Webster's Dictionary and the Bible, Driskell argued "that homosexuality is a sin and that they the homosexuals know it is a sin to live a life of homosexuality.  Why else would they have been hiding in a closet."

A quick reminder that I'm not making any of this up.  I'm not that good.

U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard dismissed Driskell's lawsuit a few days ago.  So every homo in the land doesn't have to troop to Nebraska to offer evidence.  A shame, really--would've been a heck of a party.

You know, let me set the record straight. I tease Joe Biden, but you know he has been in my side for seven years. I love that man. He’s not just a great Vice President, he is a great friend. We’ve gotten so close in some places in Indiana, they won’t serve us pizza anymore.

No Woman, No Cry

Jamaica is known for sun, beaches, reggae--and homophobia that's stronger than Jamaican rum and ganja combined.

Last week President Obama visited the island nation.  He could've confined himself to state business.  Or to visiting the the Bob Marley museum.  Or to drinking a Red Stripe on the beach in a Speedo.

But he didn't.  At the University of the West Indies in the Jamaican capital of Kingston, Obama  conducted a town hall with young people.  In his opening remarks, he praised a woman in the audience named Angeline Jackson, executive director for Quality of Citizenship Jamaica, a lesbian rights group. Obama said:

"Several years ago, when Angeline was 19, she and a friend were kidnapped, held at gunpoint and sexually assaulted. And as a woman, and as a lesbian, justice and society were not always on her side.  But instead of remaining silent, she chose to speak out and started her own organization to advocate for women like her, and get them treatment and get them justice, and push back against stereotypes, and give them some sense of their own power. And she became a global activist.  But more than anything, she cares about her Jamaica, and making it a place where everybody, no matter their color, or their class, or their sexual orientation, can live in equality and opportunity.  That’s the power of one person, what they can do."

Bob Marley probably wouldn't agree with me, but I'd say Obama's effort to call out anti-LGBT violence in Jamaica was a fine example of Positive Vibration.
