Ahead of next month's expected vote on allowing gay troops (but not gay leaders/adults) to serve in the Boy Scouts of America, the Mormon Church has released a statement in support of ending discrimination.
We're absolutely convinced that the television moment of our time has passed us by now that we can assume that no camera was present then Mariah Carey ALLEGEDLY found out that American Idol producers were considering replacing her with Jennifer Lopez midway through the season.
We CAN'T. To say that J.Lo and Mariah had a tense relationship in the past--at least according to the media--is an understatement, so we can only imagine the hellstorm that this must have set off.
Doctoring photos is a time-honored tradition of the anti-gay movement, and one that hate group the Family Research Council celebrated this week in a video encouraging the Boy Scouts to continue discriminating against gays.
It appears members of the Supreme Court aren't above stating outright lies.
Justice Antonin Scalia made the comment during Tuesday's Prop. 8 hearing that “there’s considerable disagreement among sociologists as to what the consequences of raising a child in a single-sex family, whether that is harmful to the child or not.”
Only that's not true. And considering he had an amicus brief submitted by the American Sociological Association (ASA) on that specific subject, he should have known better.
