!! OMG, “I don’t accept this”: Elton John on calling David Furnish his ‘husband,’ not ‘partner’ !!

“I know a lot of people, and perhaps especially religious people, will say that David and I should count ourselves lucky for living in a country that allows civil partnerships, and call it quits there. Well, I don’t accept this. I don’t accept it because there is a world of difference between calling someone your ‘partner’ and calling them your ‘husband’. ‘Partner’ is a word that should be preserved for people you play tennis with, or work alongside in business.”

!! OMG, true champion: Pro boxer Orlando Cruz comes out !!

2012-10-03-orlando-cruz-4_3_r560.jpg
I can’t think of any sport more closely associated with the traditional ideas of masculinity than professional boxing. And so it is no small thing for pro boxer Orlando Cruz to come out of the closet with the following statement:

“I’ve been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself. I want to try to be the best role model I can be for kids who might look into boxing as a sport and a professional career. I have and will always be a proud Puerto Rican. I have always been and always will be a proud gay man.”

!! OMG, “going to happen”: Lady Gaga on gay marriage !!

“I think that gay marriage is going to happen. It must. We are not actually equal — humanity — if we are not allowed to freely love one another… What the Pope thinks of being gay does not matter to the world. It matters to the people who like the Pope and follow the Pope… It is not a reflection of all religious people.”

!! OMG, happy one year anniversary: President Obama on the repeal of DADT !!

“A year ago today, we upheld the fundamental American values of fairness and equality by finally and formally repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ Gay and lesbian Americans now no longer need to hide who they love in order to serve the country they love. It is a testament to the professionalism of our men and women in uniform that this change was implemented in an orderly manner, preserving unit cohesion, recruitment, retention and military effectiveness. As Commander in Chief, I’ve seen that our national security has been strengthened because we are no longer denied the skills and talents of those patriotic Americans who happen to be gay or lesbian. The ability of service members to be open and honest about their families and the people they love honors the integrity of the individuals who serve, strengthens the institutions they serve, and is one of the many reasons why our military remains the finest in the world.”

— POTS Barack Obama on the one-year anniversary of the end to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the U.S. military’s policy of discrimination against gay and lesbian service members

!! OMG, Jesus (maybe) had a wife: Says ancient papyrus fragment !!

original-jesus.jpg
No big deal or anything but Karen L. King of Harvard Divinity School has translated Coptic text on a small piece of papyrus from the fourth century as saying, “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife…'” According to King, the document also states “she will be able to be my disciple,” which in combination with the wife reference adds weight to the argument that Mary Magdalene was really Jesus’ spouse. Suddenly, The Da Vinci Code doesn’t seem so far fetched, does it Dan Brown?
