The Wrap-Up: May 16, 2012

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is not very popular in his home state. We just aren't that into him.

President Obama's announcement supporting marriage equality (yes, we're still talking about this) has had a cascading affect.

The response from many black pastors on the other hand is a little...less than supportive. At least Obama still has the Reverend Al Sharpton on his side.

Shorter University is seeing a huge faculty exodus because of its new "lifestyle statement." Strange how people don't want their employers telling them how to live their lives away from work.

George Zimmerman may face the death penalty for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. I'm not really here or there on capital punishment, but I won't feel bad for Zimmerman either way.

One of Mitt Romney's donors wants his money back. I'm guessing it's actually more than one (or will be eventually).

Major League Soccer is joining the fight against homophobia in sports.

One of Facebook's co-founders is making a big donation to the marriage battle in Maine.

And lastly, there are more holes in the claim that Christianity and marriage equality are mutually exclusive.
