U.S. Catholics are to get
guidance from Rome in advance of election day
, according to U.S.
Cardinal-designate Raymond Burke. The guidance will be to vote against
candidates based on their pro-choice, pro-stem cell research, pro-euthanasia, and pro-gay marriage.
Catholics will be told they must do “their civic duty in accord with their
Catholic faith.” That includes:

So, the Catholic Church in teaching
that sexual acts between persons of the same sex are intrinsically evil, are
against nature itself, is simply announcing the truth, helping people to
discriminate right from wrong in terms of their own activities.

Gay down! We’ve lost Sam Adama (Sasha Roiz), because SyFy has pulled the plug on Caprica, just days after greenlighting Battlestar: Blood and Chrome. I’m not surprised, but they owe us
two gays, minimum, on the new series. Plus, they’re pulling it from the
schedule, and we don’t get to see the final five episodes until sometime next
year.

Local NBC affiliate in Texas allowed host Garth Maier to run an entire radio show
based around “Will the Acceptance of Homosexuality In This Society Be the
Downfall of America?” Garth obviously believed it did, and his callers were
mostly on his side. It’s pretty horrific to listen to.

Script pages from the Alien
prequel gay sex scene that we wish we’d written.

Prince Edward Island, a generally accepting place that even
has a gay library, has had an arson attack on the home of an elderly gay
couple. Neighbors believe it was a hate crime.

be able to walk through the movie theater on the weekend.

When I lived in Washington D.C., the annual High Heel Race
was one of the great events for the community. Sometimes the mayor even put on stilettos
and made the effort. The Washington Blade
has great photo coverage of this year’s event.

Need IED-proof underwear? Blast Boxers are for you.

Olympic speed skater Blake
Skjellrup
makes an excellent case that Justin
Bieber
is one of the most bullied teens on the planet, and even
worse, a lot of the bullies are adults. He could become a powerful force for the
anti-bullying cause.

Tony Scott says
the Top Gun sequel is still a few years out, which will put Tom Cruise at retirement age for military
service. The story will center around the pilots remotely operating drones in
combat while being based in Nevada. In other words, it’s a movie about video
games.

I don’t know what Four Loko is, beyond some weak mix of
alcohol combined with caffeine, guarana and taurine in a can. But young
drinkers are dying by binge drinking it, and the FDA is considering
banning it. I’m still not sure how it can be that different from Red Bull and
vodka.

Whipped Lightning,
flavored, alcoholic aerosol whipped crème.

Dave Holmes takes issue
with
Barb Anderson of the
Minnesota Family Council saying “It becomes homosexual advocacy when you allow
this curriculum to come in under the guise of anti-bullying.” And when Dave
Holmes takes up issue with something, it’s a thing of beauty. 

And to end the page on a high note, if you haven’t watched the
young, adorable, and stunningly earnest young man who learned to sign for a
cute deaf boy he met, please click on over and remember what it’s like to be
young and in love. This is the single happiest thing I’ve watch 50 times this
week.
