Those darn fundies! What's happening to good old fashioned conservative morality? First there's Vitter and his prostitutes, then the Florida state senator offers a cop $20 and a blowjob, and now here comes former NC legislator Coy Privette - busted for patronizing prostitutes and paying with stolen checks. Best part? After leaving the legislature, Privette became the president of the Christian Action League where he lobbied the legislature on morality issues...

In a new CNN poll, Bill Richardson has overtaken John Edwards in New Hampshire, rising to 3rd place among Democratic presidential contenders.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has agreed to pay more than 100 sex abuse victims $660,000,000 in compensation. And yet, Catholics still believe that homosexuality is a worse sin than child molestation as they continue to condemn gays and lesbians while tacitly condoning and covering up for pedophile priests.

GLAAD takes the New York Post to task for yet another homophobic cartoon by Sean Delonas. Delonas is known for anti-gay cartoons that focus on stereotypes.

Former gay porn actors Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes continue to maintain that they are innocent of killing porn producer Bryan Kocis. Cuadra has continued his blog from his jail cell by mailing and phoning in posts to someone "on the outside." (If you visit the blog, you'll want to turn off the sound or you'll get audio of Cuadra referring to himself as "your studwonder.")

While I was going to do a post on Akron Ohio's decision to market themselves to LGBT tourists, now I find myself putting them in a roundup for changing their minds instead. Oh well, we all know Cleveland Rocks.

As a North Carolinian I'm a little surprised I hadn't heard this little gem of news.. Of Course the organization he represents will likely not do anything to punish him... Its do as I say, not do as I do..
