A group of more than 100 pro-LGBT faith leaders sent an eloquently-worded letter to President Obama today urging him not to include broad religious exemptions in his forthcoming executive order on anti-LGBT employment discrimination.
Thor Bulow looks striking in these images by famed photographer Rick Day. With his piercing blue eyes and beautiful blonde locks, we're left wondering where he came from. Did he descend from the heavens on a bolt of lighting to grace us mere mortals with his godly beauty? We can always dream. For more information, go…
"In a lot of ways, I would describe it as a cult," documentary filmmaker Kate Logan (pictured) tells Queerty. "Nobody questions the leadership. You follow authority. It's very isolated. A lot of bad things happen." Logan directed and produced Kidnapped For Christ, which recently won the Audience Award for Best Feature Documentary at the 2014 Slamdance Film…
You know, I hate to harp on the recently dead. I like to pay my respects to those who have passed away, at least for the sake of their family. But, today we are going to have to make an exception. I will try to be as delicate as I can – however, the record must be set straight.
Liberal radio host Stephanie Miller on Sunday explained to former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina that her study of medieval history would “come in handy” after the Supreme Court ruled that corporations like Hobby Lobby could deny birth control coverage to women for religious reasons.
Religious leaders in Kansas view the U.S. Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision last week as an opportunity to revive legislation that would protect their "religious freedom" -- measures that gay rights advocates warn would legitimize discrimination against LGBT people.
The Associated Press reported this weekend that social conservatives believe they have an opening to bring the state's religious freedom bill back in 2015. The legislation failed this spring; it passed the House, but stalled in the Senate after significant backlash from business groups.

Meggan Sommerville, a 16-year employee of the company's store in Aurora, filed a complaint with the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) in April 2011 alleging discrimination in employment and in public accommodation, and her lawsuit is still pending.
A multimillionaire fast-food CEO on Monday cited President Barack Obama’s health care reform law as a reason not to raise the minimum wage, and asserted that increases would only hurt low-wage employees.
Like many of us, Scott Lively spent the Fourth of July weekend reflecting on the “gay agenda,” and on Sunday published a WorldNetDaily column arguing that said agenda very much exists and in fact “reflects an insane and Satanic delusion which breeds chaos.” Lively argues, as he does frequently, that he didn’t mind when the gay rights movement was about...
I don't care what anyone says, I think there is a certain "we are just saying this @!#* just to get paid" mentality amongst some anti-gay leaders. And as of today, the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins and Fox News personality Todd Starnes has entered that club.
First of all, let's get one thing out of the way (and I admit I am doing this to be extremely bitchy even though the words I say are true), Peter Sprigg couldn't analyze himself out of a paper bag. He is a former actor and - judging by the anti-gay hate group he chooses to associate himself with, i.e. the Family Research Council - a presently failed Christian pastor.
In the wake of the devastating explosion in West, Texas, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said on Monday, state Republicans did nothing — except make it harder for the public to know what potentially dangerous chemicals are being stored by industry forces.
