All Around the World, Gay Rights Crumble Just In Time For Me To Write About Them
Organisers say they are pleased with the turnout on Friday as more than 1,000 people took to the streets here to protest homosexuality and a proposal to legalize gay marriage in Haiti. The protesters carried anti-gay placards and chanted songs in which they threatened to burn down parliament if its members make same-sex marriage legal. A Haitian gay rights group has said it plans to submit a proposal allowing homosexuals to wed, but a coalition of religious groups said it opposed recent laws in other countries supporting gay marriage.
According to sources in Haiti, within the protest against marriage between persons of the same sex, individuals armed with knives (sticks, blocks and other objects) attacked several people.

A Republicanism Round-Up
House Republicans have been using taxpayer funding to foot the $2.3 million dollar billto defend the Defense of Marriage Act in a number of cases…Now that the Court has overturned DOMA, the House is abandoning its defense in the other cases…Thus, the federal government will no longer be spending taxpayer money to defend discrimination against same-sex couples, though the money already spent — which could have actually helped people — is lost forever.
+ Ken Cuccinelli, candidate for Governor in Virginia and man who shares a last name with a really terrible person I knew once, wants to ban oral and anal sex (FOR THE CHILDREN, OF COURSE) and is a straight-up, unabashed, incredibly douchey, homophobic asshole. I assume for those of us who live in Virginia this election is a no-brainer, right.
