Man honored by Obama: God 'sinful, homophobic bigot'
'He should seek forgiveness for the pain needlessly inflicted upon gay people'
A man honored by President Obama as a "civil rights pioneer" has told a Christian ministry leader the God of the Bible is a "sinful, homophobic bigot" who needs to repent and "seek forgiveness for the pain and suffering which his sinful homophobia has needlessly inflicted upon gay people for the past 4,000 years."

The comments come from Frank Kameny, a longtime activist for homosexual "rights," who once famously said bestiality is all right "as long as the animal doesn't mind (and the animal rarely does)."

According to Peter LaBarbera, president of the nonprofit Americans for Truth, Kameny sent an e-mail to his Christian organization a few weeks ago.

Kameny, who was dismissed from his federal job as an astronomer in the 1950s because of his homosexuality, told LaBarbera, "You have the whole issue of sin, vis a vis homosexuality, 'on the wrong foot.' It is your homophobic God of Leviticus (and of the Bible as a whole) himself (herself? itself? themselves?) who is the sinner because of that homophobia."

"Bigotry is sinful, whether it be racism, anti-Semitism, or homophobia," Kameny wrote.


Newsweek Column: 'Same-sex Marriage is an American Value'

By Carolyn Plocher Culture and Media Institute January 12, 2010
Time to hit the bunkers. The war over same-sex marriage – which never dies down to begin with – has another battle brewing. This time it’s in California … again.

A suit has been filed in federal court against Proposition 8 (surprise, surprise), the brow-beaten state law that bans same-sex marriage. Co-leading the suit are David Boies and Theodore Olson. If that last name rings a conservative bell, it should.

Olson, a self-professed “lifelong Republican,” was a former Bush administration solicitor general. So it’s not just the court case that’s feeling the heat from pro-traditional advocates; Olson is running for high ground, too. Not surprisingly, Newsweek was kind enough to offer him a mountainous soapbox to preach to his “fellow conservatives” that suffer from “kneejerk hostility toward gay marriage.”

Of course, the liberal-leaning magazine did not require the super-lawyer to provide evidence for his position, nor did it provide a soapbox to the lawyers defending his suit (surprise, surprise).

In his article “The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage,” Olson simply couldn’t fathom why his fellow, bumbling conservatives haven’t welcomed gay marriage with open arms, since, in his mind, “same-sex unions promote the values conservatives prize.”

Newsweek's Fineman: GOP Has "Terrible Record" on Race; "Pretty Much Everybody" Favors Dems
Fineman claimed that, in addition to African-Americans, "everybody else in the society pretty much" would view Democrats more favorably on the issue:

Republicans don’t want to engage in a long, drawn-out discussion of who’s more committed to equality in this society, and who has done more politically for the African-American community in the last, oh, say, 40 years or so, because that’s an argument and a discussion Republicans are going to really look bad in, and they don’t want to continue it. Yes, Harry Reid made a very unfortunate remark, and, yes, it’s troublesome, but if you attempt to put the Republican party next to the Democratic party, it’s not only African-Americans who are going to look with the Democratic party with favor on questions of race relations but everybody else in the society pretty much, too.
He soon described "fair-minded people" as being those who would side with Democrats on race:

If you really want to get into a discussion of race relations and racial sensitivity, then the Republicans are going to lose. They don’t want to fight the battles politically here in Washington over the next few weeks or whenever on that basis, because they’re going to lose. They have a terrible record. Barack Obama got 96 percent of the African-American vote 2008. I was at the Republican convention in St. Paul. There were precious few African-Americans there, certainly not very visible. It’s not a big part of the Republican agenda. And fair-minded people are going to look at it and say, "Well, if you really want to have this discussion, well, then, the Republicans are going to lose whatever Harry Reid might have said to the guys who wrote that book."


What's Going on in Massachusetts? - Human Events, by Newt Gingrich
With one week to go, who will win the special election in Massachusetts to replace the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D) is still anybody’s guess. But before a single vote is counted, we can be sure of this: The Massachusetts race is already telling us a lot about how unhappy Americans are with the liberal, big government agenda in Washington.On Monday, Scott Brown raised an extraordinary $1.3 million from over 16,000 donations averaging less than $80.And a poll released earlier this week by the left-leaning polling firm Public Policy Polling shows the race between little known Republican State Senator Scott Brown and Kennedy’s anointed successor, Democratic Attorney General Martha Coakley, in a dead heat.

Another poll by the Boston Globe released this week has Coakley up by 15 points.There are reasons to trust the first poll more than the second, but the bottom line is that we don’t know what will happen in Massachusetts.We don’t know if Scott Brown can win.But there are some things we do know about what’s going on in Massachusetts -- and they are all bad signs for President Obama and his party.

Even if Brown Doesn’t Win, the Election is a Negative Referendum on Democratic Rule in Washington

First and foremost, we know that a combination of persistent unemployment, taxes, liberal health care reform and national security fears have made this race to fill the seat of the late liberal lion of the Senate, Ted Kennedy -- in a state in which Democrats outnumber Republicans by three to one -- closer than anyone would have dreamed three years ago.

A computer registry is a Windows specific aspect of a computer. It contains information on just about everything a computer does. And cleaning it can certainly be a long and tedious project. Below are some things to consider for how to clean up computer registry with registry cleaner.

The first thing anyone should know about cleaning a registry is to not do it manually. Consider the fact that everything your computer does is on there, from web browsing to installed programs. So if a file gets deleted or replaced without knowing what it does, it could seriously damage the computer.

The alternative option is to use a registry cleaning program. But, before anything is done to the registry, a backup needs to be made (that way, if something is broken, it can be restored). Usually, third-party programs have a way of doing it themselves. For the ones that don't, there's a manual way to do it, using the Windows Registry Editor.

When using a third-party program, it's important to know which ones won't accidentally break the computer. Some programs can delete key registry items and cause more problems than they solve. As such, it's best to check either ZDNet, CNET, PC world, or PC magazine for the latest on helpful (and harmful) programs to use.

By cleaning up the registry, old (and even unused) registry items are removed, giving a little more space and a lot more processing power. Old registries, such as the ones from uninstalled files, usually connect to locations that don't exist or that can't be found, slowing down the computer. By removing them, the computer can focus on the task at hand.
