Anglican Church vote to approve same-sex marriage fails to pass | CBC News
Extremely important to note.

Church rules require motions to be passed by a two-thirds majority from its three groups of delegates: the laity, clergy and bishops. On Friday, the requirement for the motion did not meet the threshold among the bishops. Lay voters and members of the clergy were more than two-thirds in favour of the motion.

"Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson receives support from Sarah Palin, Louisiana governor - CBS News
lol fuck, it figures Palin and Jindal would be lining up to defend this guy's homophobia. but wait, aren't these the same ppl pushing the at-will employment thing? isn't it an employer's God-Given Right to fire their impudent peons whenever they feel like it?

Sarah Palin posted a picture on her Facebook page of her with the reality show clan with the message, "Free Speech is an endangered species." She added: "Those 'intolerants' hatin' and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us."

And Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also lamented the suspension on free speech terms. "It's a messed-up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended," said the governor in a statement Thursday (the show is filmed in his state.)

Italian pasta baron's anti-gay comment prompts boycott call | Reuters

Aurelio Mancuso, head of gay rights group Equality Italia: "We accept the invitation from the Barilla owner to not eat his pasta."

Signor Mancuso is much classier than I; I'm tempted to use some of the little Italian that I know.

"No a famiglie gay negli spot" Bufera sul web contro Barilla - Parma -

"Non faremo pubblicità con omosessuali, perché a noi piace la famiglia tradizionale. Se i gay non sono d'accordo, possono sempre mangiare la pasta di un'altra marca. Tutti sono liberi di fare ciò che vogliono purché non infastidiscano gli altri". Una dichiarazione che farà discutere, rilasciata ieri da Guido Barilla durante la trasmissione La zanzara di Radio24.

Contro l'azienda, che da sempre - anche per il brand della casa Mulino Bianco - si pubblicizza puntando sull'immagine di famiglia perfetta, è scoppiata una campagna di boicottaggio sui social network, in modo particolare su Twitter.

Google psuedotranslation:

"We will not be advertising with homosexuals, because we like the traditional family. If the gays do not agree, they can always eat pasta from another manufacturer. Everyone is free to do whatever they want provided it does not annoy others." A statement that will be discussed, released yesterday by Guido Barilla during transmission Mosquito Radio24.

Against the company, which has always - even for the brand of the house Mulino Bianco - advertises itself by focusing on the image of the perfect family, broke a boycott campaign on social networks, especially on Twitter.


"Raccogliendo l'invito del proprietario della Barilla a non mangiare la sua pasta, rilanciamo con una campagna di boicottaggio di tutti i suoi prodotti. Per intanto è già partito su twitter l'hastag #boicottabarilla". Lo dice in una nota Aurelio Mancuso, presidente dell'associazione omosessuale Equality Italia.

"Accepting the invitation of the owner of Barilla not to eat his pasta, we are launching a boycott campaign of all his products. Right now, there is already a #boycottbarilla hashtag on twitter." Aurelio Mancuso, president of the homosexual association Equality Italy, said in a note.

Pax Dickinson (paxdickinson) on Twitter
CTO of Business Insider...oh wait, what? Formerly CTO? Srsly! O_o

<@paxdickinson> IMO accusing someone of "misogyny" over some low-grade sexism means you owe another apology.

LOL, go for it, rich white dude. You go ahead and lay the smack down and tell all those uppity feminist women how they're supposed to do feminism and how they're doing it wrong.

<@paxdickinson> "misogyny" is "hatred of women". It is not misogyny to tell a sexist joke, or to fail to take a woman seriously, or to enjoy boobies.
<@paxdickinson> by using the word "misogyny" to describe minor slights, you encourage men to disregard all claims of misogyny, including valid ones.

<@paxdickinson> feminism in tech remains the champion topic for my block list. my finger is getting tired.

<@anildash> Wow, didn't realize @businessinsider had hired such an asshole in @paxdickinson. Getting memcache to build made him an expert on misogyny!
<@paxdickinson> @anildash really, dude? You know we work in the same building right? Would you like to come call me an asshole to my face tomorrow?

Some of his other "best" tweets:

...and going back in history:
<@paxdickinson> A man who argues on behalf of feminism is a tragic figure of irony, like a Jewish Nazi.
<@paxdickinson> Women's suffrage and individual freedom are incompatible. How's that for an unpopular truth?
