Michael Sam made waves the other year when he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams as the first openly gay NFL player. Today, amid talks that the supreme court will take a closer look at the constitutional grounds for gay marriage, Sam posted this photo on Instagram proposing to his long-time boyfriend Vito Cammisano.
YouTube personalities Austin and Aaron Rhodes (aka “The Rhodes Bros“) decided to finally come out of the closet to their family and friends in 2015.
In this heartwarming video they call up their father, and tell him they are gay for the very first time.
There’s a lot of stalling and a lot of tears before they finally build up the courage to do it, but when it’s all said and done, he is very supportive.
“You know I love you both,” he says. “That’ll never change.”
The brothers said afterwards that they had never been so nervous in their life, but now feel a huge weight has been lifted off of their shoulders.
“We hope by our actions today you can finish watching this video feeling encouraged and inspired,” they write to their viewers.
Forget hurricanes and earthquakes, a gay avalanche is coming and we need to be prepared!
A writer for The Christian Post wrote an op-ed last week called “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?”
In his piece, he criticizes a number of gay celebrities as well as gay-themed TV shows and films including Michael Sam, Anderson Cooper “Glee,” “Modern Family” and “Foxcatcher.”
“The indoctrination and propaganda coming from those advocating a gay lifestyle in our country, classrooms and culture are increasing,” he writes. “We are being bombarded!”
His suggestion is that we only watch shows like “Little House on the Prairie,” and “I Love Lucy” to combat this “tidal wave of unprecedented evil.”
He also targets Ellen in particular saying:
“Ellen DeGeneres” celebrates her lesbianism and “marriage” in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.
So on her show this week, Ellen responded to the online criticism, which she says she usually just ignores.
“If you ask me, Larry’s watching a lot of gay TV,” she joked, proceeding to discuss her real agenda.
“Larry the only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another. That is the message I’m sending out.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry visited the Dartmouth campus this week, where Sophomore Ben Packer handed out this flier to other audience members as well as the campus group hosting the event.
Needless to say, Governor Perry answered zero questions about Jesus and his butt.
