It was a week of big losses and big victories for the LGBT movement.

But one big winner? Biting satire calling out the ridiculousness of the anti-equality forces.

First up is the Daily Show's take on the Maine Marriage Vote:

Can't Get Queer From Here
Maine voters want to be tolerant of gays, but they ban same-sex marriage anyway.

The Mormon Church arrested Derek Jones and Matt Aune for criminal trespassing, not for being gay.

Guy-Fawkers

Colbert also pointed out the right-wing's penchant for coining sexually-loaded names for their protests- teabaggers, 2M4M, and now "Guy Fawkers":

Michele Bachmann one-ups the tea party protests by holding a health care reform rally on Guy Fawkes Day.

And just because this is brilliant- Jon Stewart skewers Glenn Beck. Perfection:

There's a war going on in America, and the stakes are nothing less than Glenn Beck's internal organs.
