This will move you all to tears, I guarantee it.

Obama to gays: "You're a liability in the upcoming election. If people think I like you they might not vote for me. Who needs you?" OK, he didn't say that - just his administration appeals the ruling on gay marriage, supporting DOMA which he was previously against. That previous standing was one of the factors that led at least some gays to support Senator Obama in the first place.here. "The Obama administration filed a notice of appeal with the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts in support of the 1996 Defence of Marriage Act that barred gay marriages, even though President Barack Obama had previously opposed the law."

Ummmm..... exactly what other reason for this action, if not trying to avoid looking too "progay"?

With friends like our current democrat president, who needs homophobes? His so-called leadership regarding LGBT issues has been sort of "I've got a full plate, don't expect everything right away" combined with "Well, at least I'm not as bad as that prior president".

There's only so much of the "You better vote for me - the other side is much, much worse" argument that will work. Maybe it's time for a "draft Hillary" movement. Unless the President can come up with some good arguments for why his "community organizing " skills don't apply to the LGBT community (or to the wars, but that's a different issue).

I'm sure that almost every gay alive was brainwashed to be straight, but that didn't stop all of us from being being gay. I like to imagine all of us gays getting married to people of the opposite sex, like he suggests is the best course of action. What a fucked up mess that would be.

NY candidate for governor not exactly courting the gay vote. "There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual" in his prepared but nonpresented statement. He did state, he didn't want children "to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option," compared to heterosexuality. "It isn't," Paladino said at a stop in Brooklyn, New York.

There's nothing to be proud of in being a shameless bigot, either.

Situation not known, so this stands alone at face value. Another gay teen commits suicide. Raymond Chase in Rhode Island


I know I went through a period of severe depression at the same age, and self destructive behavior. This tears me up.

The phrase "End Human Bankruptcy" really caught my attention. I too have been mulling over this idea recently. It lead me to post on another forum a list of 144 (plus 6 you come up with) ideas to help build a community: http://bettertogether.org/150ways.htm

I see the connection in that maybe if some of these young people had felt they had someone they could turn to and trust--be it a friend, family member, community leader, etc. maybe these deaths could have been prevented. It's certainly worth trying to reach out to others, say hello and lend a hand once in awhile if there is even a chance that you could prevent this sort of thing from happening close to your home.

Continuing prior comment, this article on nj.com suggests Ravi could face up to 5 years. I doubt that he'll serve 5 minutes. My gut tells me he won't. Well, there's some justice - his name is going to be famous for 15 minutes for being a homophobic cyberbully. And poissibly his friend Molly Wei, although Im not clear on her role in this.
