Gay Wed. II – Gay Allies in US Church and Military, Christians won’t Debate Marriage, God Hates Figs

  • Methodist Bishop, Gay Ally, Dies at 93:

    Wheatley was known for his sometimes unpopular stances on issues like gay rights and interfaith tolerance. In 1980, Wheatley publicly refused to support a statement by fellow Methodist bishops calling homosexuality “incompatible with Christian teaching,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

  • West Point grads form gay support group:

    Thirty-eight graduates of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., came out of the closet Monday with an offer to help their alma mater educate future Army leaders on the need to accept and honor the sacrifices of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender troops.

    “Knights Out” wants to serve as a connection between gay troops and Army administrators, particularly at West Point, to provide an “open forum” for communication between gay West Point graduates and their fellow alumni and to serve in an advisory role for West Point leaders in the eventuality — which the group believes is both “imminent and inevitable” — that the law and policy collectively known as “don’t ask, don’t tell” are repealed by Congress.

    Thanks for the Tip-off Joe

  • The Christianists won’t Debate Gay Marriage:

    The University of Pittsburgh invited Andrew Sullivan to debate former senator Rick Santorum on marriage equality. Santorum declined to engage in any public forum, as did Rick Warren.

  • Jesus Condemned Figs, not Fags:

    Jesus didn’t have anything to say about homosexuality—but, as it turns out, he had quite a lot to say about figs. From a flyer handed out at the Westboro Baptist Church’s demonstration at the University of Chicago earlier this week:

    I did not know that. Thanks for the tip-off Dan.
