Anti-gay Christian radio host Bryan Fischer has tweeted his distaste at the decision to allow gay members into the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), tweeting a bible reference suggesting drowning would be better than inclusion.

A collection of LGBT activists demonstrating solidarity with those calling for freedom of the press in Uganda were arrested when police broke up the peaceful protest.
District Judge John Roach Jr., of Collin County, Texas, ruled last week that a lesbian mother cannot live with her partner of three years and maintain custody of her children.
The judge invoked a “morality clause” when he said that Page Price and Carolyn Compton are not qualified to live in a house with children together. Per his ruling, anyone not related by “blood or marriage” is forbidden to be in Compton’s home after 9pm when the children are home. Because marriage equality is illegal in Texas, Price is essentially kicked out.
“Our children are all happy and well-adjusted,” Price wrote on a Facebook post announcing the decision. “By his enforcement, being that we cannot marry in this state, I have been ordered to move out of my home.”
Compton’s divorce from her ex-husband was finalized in 2011, though the case was reopened in April following a custody dispute, reports theVoice.
Price believes the inclusion of the “morality clause” in Compton’s initial divorce paperwork was prompted by the judge’s disapproval of Compton’s “lifestyle.” Price also notes that Compton’s ex-husband rarely sees his two children, and in 2011 was charged with stalking his ex-wife.
I don’t see much morality in this at all. This couple could very well appeal this decision and win, and I hope they do.

Amber Dee Parker’s picture book God Made Dad & Mom encourages kids to pray for the destruction of families with same-sex parents.
I asked the Boy Scouts of America repeatedly for an explanation for why it would remove the ban on gay scouts but continue the ban on openly gay adults. But there isn’t one. Like “don’t ask, don’t tell,” the Boy Scouts’ policy is a compromise measure—devoid of all principle—that bows to opinion polls, fears, and the yelps of religious conservatives.
The country’s nearly 30-year-old ban will be updated to allow some gay men to give blood by midsummer. However, restrictions will still apply.
Pro-LGBT forces say it doesn’t go far enough, while right-wingers say churches may leave scouting.
TW: heterosexism, misogyny, gay slur

Peter is a gay man I slept with once. When he did come home with me and we were naked in my bed, he kissed my neck, and I moaned, high-pitched and breathy. He stopped, looked me in the eye and said, “Don’t do that. It’s faggy.”

The problem is, the homosexual community is very organized. They got a lot of money behind them. In fact, the average homosexual makes more than the average person does. They have better education. And they’re really good at shutting anybody down and embarrassing them so they will shut up.
