The Wrap-Up: February 2, 2012

Does anyone really even pay attention to Groundhog Day? Anyway, moving on...

Virginia joins a growing course of states attempting to disenfranchise the poor, elderly, and racial minorities pass a voter ID bill.

The Church of Latter-Day Saints does NOT have a good track record when it comes to race relations.How might this affect Mitt Romney?

Attendees of the Super Bow this weekend are in for a bit of a surprise (unless they read this article I guess).

Hudson Taylor
Newt Gingrich is set to get an endorsement today he really should not want.

Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) offers a non-apology for his remarks on civil rights. There's a "half-assed/fat" joke in there begging to be made, but I'm feeling a bit magnanimous.

"Mayors for the Freedom to Marry" is gaining more support.

Athlete Ally, which fights homophobia in sports, has found a partner: the NCAA. Also, this gives me a reason to post a picture of Athlete Ally's founder, Hudson Taylor. You're welcome.

And lastly, at least one North Carolina pastor is standing against the marriage equality ban and theocracy.
