Kevin And Don Respond To Being Self Loathing

Looking back at their journey from the Stonewall Democratic Club to Log Cabin Republicans, they claim it was one that was actually started by the democrats. After being told that marriage as not a priority on the agenda in 1995, they became disillusioned with the DEMS. For a decade they felt like they did not belong until they met the republicans of the Log Cabin Republican Club and discovered they too shared a dream of marriage equality. This blog is now a digital time capsule of their time as Republicans and moderated by a friend and supporter.

Schwarzenegger One Step Ahead of the SUPREMES

The Los Angeles Times has reported, "In a setback for the Boy Scouts, the Supreme Court turned away today a free speech challenge to a city policy in Berkeley that denied a subsidy to a Scouting group because it excludes gays and atheists.The court's action lets stand rulings in California and elsewhere that have said cities, schools and colleges may deny special benefits to groups that refuse to comply with broad non-discrimination rules involving religion and sex orientation. "
Well I guess California Governor Schwarzenegger by signing SB 1441 (Kuehl-D) into law was one step ahead of the SUPREMES. SB 1441 requires all businesses and organizations receiving funding from the state to condone homosexuality or lose state funding. There is no exception for faith-based organizations or business owners with sincerely held religious convictions.
The governor's position is entirely consistent with the SUPREMES's most recent decision.
Way to go ARNOLD!
