A boycott and pressure campaign was launched against Brendan Eich, recently named CEO of Mozilla (which owns the Firefox browser), because in 2008 he contributed to a pro-Proposition 8 group. Eich resigned after a revolt against him at his own company due to his contribution.

This Wednesday, I reported that the media were falsely reporting that Chick-fil-A had decided to cease donations to “anti-gay” groups. Scores of so-called reputable news outlets like the Los Angeles Times and ABC News ran headlines declaring that Chick-fil-A had changed its policy toward giving to anti-gay groups. Yesterday, Chick-fil-A set the...

As long-time readers surely know, I have examined the pernicious methodology of the Southern Poverty Law Center in moving from fighting Klan and neo-Nazi groups to fighting for the Democratic Party agenda against conservatives and the Tea Party.

I’m not sure on whom this reflects more poorly, Alcee Hastings (D-FL, ex-Judge, 1 of 8 fed officials ever successfully impeached, now sometimes spokesman for your Democratic Party), or HuffPo for actually reporting this nonsense.

But it’s out there, and has been picked up many places, so here you go from HuffPo’s...

I am now willing to classify Anne’s video of the taunting of the street preacher in Chicago as “viral’ now that it has reached over 186,000 views on YouTube.

Barack Obama was for gay marriage (pre-presidential campaign), before he was against it (1st presidential campaign), before he was for it (urgent cash call during 2nd presidential campaign).

I attended Friday night’s “Kiss-in” protest outside the only Chick-fil-A location in Chicago. The small group of between twenty to thirty protesters gathered outside the restaurant around 7pm. A few same-sex couples took the opportunity to kiss in public, as the protest organizers encouraged attendees to do on their facebook page.
