The Wrap-Up: December 29, 2011

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
I'm really glad that I don't live in Iowa with less than a week to go until the state's caucuses.

I have to wonder why Michele Bachmann is squirming away (to a degree) from the anti-gay stances that have made her a darling of the Republican base.

A Tennessee Christian school is going to some extreme lengths to purge itself of all things gay. Even saying the word could get you in trouble.

One would think that after what happened to Congresswoman Gabby Giffords this year, people would think twice about using this type of imagery for political gains. Apparently not.

Cardinal Francis George
The North Carolina Psychological Association lays out, in no uncertain terms, the damage that would be done if the state's propose anti-marriage equality amendment were to pass.

In other North Carolinian homophobia, a Gay-Straight Alliance (though not the kind associated with schools) faced a protest last month. Here is what some of those "kind-hearted" protestors had to say.

Bank of America is paying up big because of allegations of racial discrimination. 

A Catholic Cardinal offers a poor explanation of his comparison of pride parades and the Ku Klux Klan.

A gay Ugandan man is facing deportation back to his homeland. In case you haven't heard, they don't handle homosexuality very well over there.

Former Spanish PM Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
It's nice to see how much these multi-millionaires/billionaires care about their fellow Americans. Have mentioned that I'm big on sarcasm? Seriously though, the title of this article is pretty epic (and accurate).

The former Prime Minister of Spain reflects proudly on his nations' recognition of marriage equality.

The Huffington Post runs down the top LGBT viral videos of 2011.

And lastly, Rick Santorum continues to be a joke. Seriously, the color was just unfortunate for him.
