James Dawson criticises parents who attacked his LGBT guide for children | Books | The Guardian
“In 2015, when you read of people comparing gay people to paedophiles you just despair,” “I always think, as a community, we’ve come so far and achieved so much, but then you read something like that and realise there is still such small-mindedness and hatred left to contend with.” Dawson, who recently came out as transgender, pointed to the young LGBT people of Alaska “and the message they’re receiving from this furore: they must be so terrified to come out if this is the reaction they think they’ll get”. [...] Libraries have always been the natural sanctuary of marginalised young people and long may they remain open

"Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the plaintiffs asked "for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right." // &! - How legal tide turned on same-sex marriage in the US [...] In 1996, the US Congress passed and President Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act, a law that prohibited federal recognition of same-sex marriages. // &!

The Rise Of Europe's Religious Right
For the most part, though, issues dear to social conservatives were a side issue in elections driven heavily by economic frustration. [...] The suddenness with which social conservatives became a force in Brussels has many progressives speculating that they are the creations of American social conservatives seeking to “export the culture wars.” [...] Today, American ties seem much more about a shared vision to build a global conservative movement rather than leaning on stronger and wealthier U.S. partners for support. // || Pro Progressive - the hard things are hard bc they are worth doing it. It's easy to turn ones back. But its hard to hold your face into the storm that is brewing. Holding onto status quo is not worth the struggle, it is a futile short-term view - as the status quo is not sustainable.

Shift In Gay Marriage Support Mirrors A Changing America : NPR
The latest polls indicate 58 percent of Americans support same-sex marriage. In 1977, that number was 13 percent. One researcher says that jump in support isn't the result of a generational gap — it's that many who once opposed gay marriage have changed their minds or softened their opposition. - gay rights movement championed the individual rights. - many high profile people coming out of closet may have contributed to the "normal" image of gay people and gay relationships. plus high profile hetero people have gay friends and turn into a public ally.

Ausschreitungen bei Demonstration gegen Homo-Ehe in Paris - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Einführung der Homo-Ehe samt einem gemeinsamen Adoptionsrecht für gleichgeschlechtliche Paare, ein Wahlversprechen vom sozialistischen Präsidenten François Hollande, spaltet die französische Gesellschaft. In den vergangenen Wochen gab es immer wieder Demonstrationen für oder gegen das Gesetz. Erst im Januar waren Hunderttausende in Paris gegen die "Ehe für alle" in Paris auf die Straße gegangen. Ab 4. April wird sich der Senat mit dem Entwurf beschäftigen. Gegen das Vorhaben stemmen sich vor allem die katholische Kirche und die konservative Opposition. Justizministerin Christine Taubira bezeichnet das Vorhaben als "Wandel der Zivilisation". Die Gleichstellung von Lesben und Schwulen mit heterosexuellen Paaren wird seit langem von der französischen Linken gefordert und war ein wichtiges Wahlkampfversprechen von Hollande.

Mitt Romney should not get into Office as the founding fathers really were for the separation of Church (Religion) and State. And there on record (again, as usual) cites religion and believes for his view how to legislate same-sex marriage.
