" Swanson and Vaughn referred to posts by Steven D. Greydanus for the National Catholic Register and Gina Luttrell for the liberal PolicyMic -- the former of which critiques "Frozen's" alleged gay message (the commentators agree with this one)

Santa Cruz physician Stanley Monteith plays a prominent role in "The Gay Agenda" videotape. In one segment, the doctor, who once headed the Santa Cruz County chapter of the John Birch Society, recites a list of sex practices--almost all exotic, including one that is sadomasochistic. He graphically describes each one and recites statistics to show that a high percentage of homosexuals engage in each practice.

Jubilant gay marriage supporters turned out in West Hollywood on Wednesday evening for a lively celebration of the Supreme Court's rulings on DOMA and Proposition 8. At the rally at the corner of Santa Monica and San Vicente boulevards, people danced and waved rainbow flags. Some held signs that said, "Ding Dong, Prop 8 is dead!" and "DOMA=DEAD. " Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" and Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" blared over the gathering crowd. Q&A: Key Prop. 8, DOMA questions answered Rick Watts carried his handmade sign with a checklist: "My Gay Agenda.

November 22, 1998 | MEG ROBINSON, Meg Robinson, a teacher in Santa Ana, is secretary of the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network
Election day 1998 has come and gone, and the Orange County gay and lesbian community can breathe a collective sigh of relief. The only attempt to make us a wedge issue came in the form of a Gloria Tuchman mailer trying to denigrate her opponent, Supt. of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin, by emphasizing Eastin's support by gay and lesbian organizations in San Francisco.

May 25, 2008 | Joel Pett, Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.
Most cartoonists blissfully espouse opinions supporting the anti-family, anti-God, anti-American gay agenda. I do. And because nothing is more anti-family than marriage, we marched in wedlock-step with the recent California court decision. Nick Anderson was predisposed to trash the opposition. Jimmy Margulies pictured future attack ads -- and attacked them. And Lisa Benson -- apparently she didn't get the memo. You just can't predict those wacky left-coast Californians!

How can Jeff Horton deny his alleged gay agenda when he advocates the establishment of a Gay and Lesbian Education Commission? As a public school teacher, I am distressed to have homosexual issues added to our schools' responsibilities. Public education was never meant to be the panacea for every social problem, especially in this case since a vast number of citizens consider homosexuality to be primarily a moral/religious issue. Jeff Horton et al. need to realize there is not a consensus, let alone a mandate, for our public schools to in any way endorse homosexuality.

I sometimes think of Canada as one of those science-fiction parallel universes -- a world strikingly similar to but slightly different from our own.  The differences can be illuminating. In Ontario a controversy has been raging, as they say, involving legislation that would require schools to sponsor Gay-Straight Alliances, the anti-bullying clubs that some social conservatives see as Trojan horses for the “gay agenda.” (They're right, if by gay agenda they mean recognition that gay and lesbian students exist and should feel good about themselves and their sexuality.)

Being part of a film franchise is the closest thing to having job security in Hollywood these days, so perhaps that's why so many folks in the creative community are engaging in wishful thinking regarding their upcoming or recent movies' sequel prospects. The current spate of sequel hopefuls started with Anne Hathaway's recent appearance on "Access Hollywood," in which she told her interviewer about her deep connection to the character Selina Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman), who she played in this summer's "The Dark Knight Rises.

President Obama has crossed the Rubicon and come to the defense of same-sex marriage. For him, it was a small step, since his is already the most pro-gay rights presidency in history, but it will have big political ramifications. The war is on. The line is drawn. Mitt Romney -- who, in another incarnation as a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, said he stood to the left of Teddy Kennedy on gay rights issues - now is opposed, not only to gay marriage, but to civil unions.

On a remote ranch more than 70 miles west of Austin, Texas, top evangelical leaders from around the country assembled last weekend for a private two-day retreat. It wasn't a religious revival that drew the group of 200, which included luminaries of the Christian right; it was the chance to hear the personal testimony of one man: Rick Perry. Inside an air-conditioned tent, the Texas governor and Republican presidential contender was grilled about his beliefs and his record in extraordinarily frank sessions.

Airing some beefs Re "As the Rose Bowl nears, players dig in ? for beef," Column One, Dec. 29 I find the spectacle of numerous athletes involved in an (over-) eating contest somewhat disturbing in these times of economic malaise and high unemployment in California. Many families today do not have enough to eat. Any way you slice it, this event is very inappropriate in these times of hardship. I have no beef with anyone enjoying a good cut of prime rib. I simply suggest that this particular New Year's tradition be put out to pasture.

An official proponent of Proposition 8 testified at a federal trial Thursday that he was involved in disseminating claims that same-sex marriage could cause children to become gay and spark legalization of sex with children, incest and polygamy. William Tam, one of five official proponents for the 2008 ballot initiative, also testified about his personal views toward same-sex marriage. "It is very important that our children won't grow up to fantasize or think about, 'Should I marry Jane or John?

The antique being shown on the Movie Channel was "Jungle Manhunt." It was made long ago as part of a kid-targeted series of cheapie Jungle Jim movies starring Johnny Weissmuller as a jungle guide who, despite wearing clothes, was only slightly higher on the food chain than Tarzan, the role he played for 16 years.

The graphic anti-gay video widely distributed in Congress and the Pentagon during the debate over homosexuals in the military was produced at a small, fundamentalist church tucked away in an industrial sector of Lancaster in the High Desert. Antelope Valley Springs of Life Ministries--where security guards patrol the aisles during services and weekday visitors are met by electronically locked doors--has been in the news before.

August 26, 2008 | James Kirchick, James Kirchick is an assistant editor of the New Republic.
Two weeks ago, news emerged that the co-founder of the website Manhunt.net had contributed $2,300 to the presidential campaign of John McCain. Uproar ensued. Haven't heard of Manhunt? Unless you're a gay man, that's to be expected. It's one of the most popular gay websites in the world, with 1 million registered members in the U.S. alone and 400,000 unique visitors a month. As its name implies, it's a site where many gay men go to find casual sexual encounters. Manhunt and sites like it have revolutionized one formative aspect of gay culture, taking what was once a public activity to the privacy of one's home.
