Yesterday morning my dad called to say he was so, so happy for me and my girlfriend about the DOMA news. I asked him if he was happy for himself too, that he’d be able to see his daughter married. “I am so, so happy for me too.” he said. He was the first person I talked to yesterday - well besides…

Say What Now of the Day: The city of Lincoln, Nebraska, is debating a proposal that would protect the LGBT community from discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations, and one local resident just couldn’t miss the opportunity to rant. Jane Skrovota wins Worst in Show for her hate-filled testimony vitriol in public hearings this week.

The lowlights have been helpfully transcribed (but be sure to watch the video; the horrified guy behind crazy lady is a riot):

  • “P- E- N- I- S goes into the anus to rupture intestines. The more a man does this the more he’ll be a fatality or a homicide…”
  • “A huge percent of gay men in school grounds molest boys, partly because they don’t have AIDS yet…”
  • “Hillary Clinton’s roommate four years in college was a gay woman. To avoid going gay like Clinton did, college students need single rooms and single gender dorms… A college woman is seduced with illegal Rohypnol to go gay.”
  • “Candida fungus grows hugely on a corpse. AIDS is a candida fungus disease…”
  • “Gays can transform to be celibate to live to be 80 years old.”
  • “Jesus was kissed by Judas, a homo, who tried to sabotage Jesus’ kind ideas. Do you choose Jesus, a celibate, or Judas, a homo? You have to choose!”

Santorum Santorum Says of the Day: Gone mostly unnoticed until very recently is a comment made by presidential candidate Rick Santorum during a December 30th NBC News interview, in which he made clear his intention to nullify all legal same-sex marriages currently in existence across the country.
The latest census data, collected in 2010, puts the number of married same-sex couples at 131,000, but that number is likely higher now.
Santorum said he plans to introduce an amendment to the Constitution that would not only make same-sex marriages illegal throughout the nation in perpetuity, but would also invalidate all existing unions.
“We can’t have 50 different marriage laws in this country,” he remarked. “You have to have one marriage law.”
The former Senator has come under fire in the past for comparing same-sex marriages to the matrimony of “man on child” and “man on dog.”
Both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich has expressed their intention to ban same-sex marriage through a Constitutional amendment, but have not gone so far as to demand the retroactive nullification of existing marriages.
Ron Paul, who is personally opposed to same-sex marriage, says the federal government should not be involved in deciding who can and cannot get married.
Asked how he would go about getting such an amendment approved, given growing public support for gay rights, Santorum inadvertently made a powerful appeal to history in favor of marriage equality.
“Just because public opinion says something doesn’t mean it’s right,” he said. “I’m sure there were times in areas of this country when people said blacks were less than human.”
