Are Republicans defending nations that want to kill gays?
The Republican party platform is slamming President Obama for his opposition to human rights violations of gays, in developing nations. I guess that would include his opposition to bills, such as in Uganda, that would kill gays for consensual sex. The Oklahoma Republican party platform by the way, supports the imprisonment of gay men for consensual sex, but hey, at least not they don't support executing them.
The Republican national platform includes opposition to the federal minimum wage apply to the North Marianas islands, a territory of the U.S. See, manufacturers can pay sweatshop wages to workers in factories in these islands, but still have the ability to slap a made in the U.S.A. tag on the clothes. Pretty sneaky, I must say. The GOP party platform also opposes Washington, D.C. from becoming a state. They rather have the people of D.C. treated as indentured servents and take orders from Congress, since Congress can overrule any local decisions by the people of Washington D.C. and their government.
Oh, a gay atheist has won a Democratic congressional primary in the Phoenix area. While there are a few gay members of Congress, there is only one non-theist, Pete Starks from California. Unfortunately, current Arizona state senator Krysten Sinema likes to go by the term, non-theist instead of atheist. Atheists are easier to despise, than the non-threatening non-theist. But anyway, great progress.
Finally, sadly but not surprisly the new television show, The New Normal is being censored by a NBC affiliate in Utah. Yes, they have the right to do so, but it is a sad commentary on them. The show seems it will revolve around a male gay couple that want to raise a child. There is a petition on change.org urging this affiliate to not censor this show.
