The Wrap-Up: May 21, 2012

Athletes from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill have posted a video for the "It Gets Better" campaign. I guess someone had to make the state look tolerant in the wake of Amendment One.

Mitt Romney wants to blame President Barack Obama alone for the massive cuts to military spending despite the facts that A) military insiders are on board with much of the cuts and B) the GOP definitely had a hand in $500 in cuts. What a classy fella...

Over the weekend, the NAACP officially announced its support for marriage equality.

The Pan-American Health Organization has officially denounced ex-gay "therapy."

In Minnesota, where there will be an anti- marriage quality amendment on the ballot come November, the debate has had new life breathed into it on both sides.

Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI) thinks that adding $10 trillion to the national debt will prevent a debt crisis. I believe this is what "W" meant by fuzzy math.

Remember that New Jersey teacher who wrote homophobic comments on her Facebook page a while back? The bad news is that she's avoiding penalties. The good news is that she is doing so by retiring. So long as she isn't in a position of power over kids (undoubtedly some of whom are gay).

And lastly, Evangelicals are on the wrong side of history...again.
