    All of a sudden it seems that the right wing nuts have been shootin' blanks

    * The Gov of Utah comes around to endorse Gay Civil Unions
    * Rick Warren contradicts himself to get on the right side of a Political train?
    * The National Organization for Marriage becomes synonymous with the makers of Laetrile

    Are the loonies giving up?
    Or are they just regrouping for a bigger fight somewhere else?

    This is what creeps me out. It might be one of the signs of the apocalypse.

    "Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the self-help media star once notorious for portraying homosexuality as “a biological error” and a gateway to pedophilia, told CNN’s Larry King that she now views committed gay relationships as “a beautiful thing and a healthy thing.” "icon_eek.gif

    Seems they are attempting to regroup, but with so much pressure around them their fight will be merely a blip on the screen.

    They may be able to get something put in law, but too much is happening for anti-LGBT laws to stick around for long.

    Well at least Dr. Laura is starting to realize how wrong she previously was about us gays. This alone is probably a bright light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. However, I would still be very careful with many of these right wing groups because they are more unpredictable than the weather.

    Intelligent people are learning that gay marriage is no big deal.
    But, the ignorant lunatic fringe/religious nuts continue believe that it's their duty to stop it.

    "Indeed, Miss Manners has come to believe that the basic political division in this country is not between liberals and conservatives but between those who believe that they should have a say in the love lives of strangers, and those who do not."

    As for Dr. Laura, I just can't believe that she is being honest about her little change of heart. I may be wrong, but something smells a bit fishy about that.

    As for the right wing GOP, the Obama win just has them on the ropes right now and has them questioning the future of their party, but I'm sure they'll be back to their old tricks soon enough.
