The Wrap-Up: November 7, 2011

A series of earthquakes, topping out at about 5.6, rocked Oklahoma over the weekend. Despite the state being home to Sally Kern, I'm sure the big bad gays will still get blamed.

Speaking of earthquakes, cue the obligatory end-is-nigh statement by Pat Robertson.

I have never been a fan of the jock celebratory butt-slap (I'm surprised too), but I think Iran has me beat.

Another rabidly anti-gay pastor has been caught in a compromising situation. I have long ceased to be surprised by these stories.

Some congressional Republicans seem to be breaking ranks from Grover Norquist's anti-tax pledge.

Luke Evans
A new bipartisan group aims to change the debate on marriage equality.

Is actor Luke Evans in or out? That depends on when you ask.

Gloria Allred has become involved in the Herman Cain sexual harassment story, which means I no longer care about it.

The United Kingdom has lifted it's "gay blood ban." Well...sort of...

A trailer has been posted for "Breaking the Silence" which is a student made documentary about the plight of gay youth. There are some disturbing tales, yet also, some very hopeful ones.

A group of Mississippi religious leaders (including a Catholic Bishop) has come out against a proposed Personhood (i.e. anti-abortion bill). So much of that sentence does not compute.

Orly Taitz
Ken Mehlman, former RNC Chair during Goerge W. Bush's reelection campaign, made Out Magazine's "Out 100," which has a lot of people (myself included) enormously pissed. It's unfathomable how this publication could celebrate treachery (i.e. gay people who have fought against gay equality).

The Birther Queen (Orly Taitz) is running to unseat Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

A speech by Governor Walker (R-WI) was, well, OCCUPIED!!!

Again, don't forget that tomorrow is Election Day so get out and vote. In a year where turnout is expected to be low, every vote matters all the more. HERE is a page for Virginia voters to check out.
