It's been a little while again. I haven't really had the time or the energy or the strength to compile one for a while. And compiling them takes some time since it's not something I can really do in one sitting
But, I do think they're imporant, so after much wrangling I finally got it together
With the marriage equality consultation in the UK, many religious groups have got together to show their bigotry. The bigoted Archbishop of York, John Sentamu calls our love dictatorial, Lord Carey being his usual bigoted self, the Archbishop of Canterbury joining the bigotry. The Archbigot Vincent Nichols has added the voice of Catholic hatred as well as has grotesque Cardinal Patrrick O’Brien. The Muslim Council of Great Britain doesn’t want to miss out on the hate-fest
Speaking of, Ex-Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, the full blown bigot, is huffing nd puffing about a “therapist” who was suspended for peddling homophobic ex-gay therapy. Of course, lord Carey doesn’t give a damn about the damage it does or how medically unsound it is – he’s more interested in his bigotry. And he’s joined by considerably more of our religious elite. He’s also joined by ex-Tory MP, arch-bigot and defender of all prejudiced religion, Ann Widdecombe
Chief Catholic bigot, the Pope, is still a bigot. He is obeyed, repeatedly. Bisphop Dick Malone is another homophobic Catholic bigot. The Archbishop of Baltimore, Edwin O’Briens continues the Catholic church’s constant bigotry and says human rights for gay people are offensive to black people – yes it’s not meant to make sense, it’s bigotry. Bishop of Rhode Island Thomas Tobin is always willing to fly the bigot flag
A priest presiding over a woman’s funeral walked out when he found out one of the woman’s daughters was a lesbian. A Catholic church in North Carolina has sacked their music director for marrying the man he loves after 23 years together
The Catholic church has also stopped funding a homeless shelter because one of the members of the shelter isn’t a homophobic bigot. Bigotry is more important than charity to the Catholic Church
And Pastor Joe Fuiten joins the long list of moral, religious types lying to attack us. Amazing how much lying is a necessary moral act when it comes to homophobia
In the UK, we also have several MPs and MEPs losing their shit about marriage equality. Tory Robert Gale has decided that marriage equality will require Shakespeare to be rewritten, Tory MEP Giles Chichester adding his bigotry, Tory MP Peter Bone has his own bigotry to add and UKIP MEP Roger Helmer is just vile and always has beenwhole UKIP party is confirming that they’re homophobic arseholes
In France, MP Christian Vanneste has let a whole string of bigotry spill out including some severe history revisionism about the holocaust.
So the US clown car that is the republican nomination continues to show its bigotry. Gingrich lashes out at gay love as undermining civilisation, Mitt Romney will amend the constitution to ban marriage equality and Santorum is his usual frothy self with equally vile supporters
In the US, a lesbian couple is forced apart because of DOMA. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of bi-national couples having their families torn apart because of bigotry. These children are missing one of their mother’s – this is family values?
Also in the US, there is a bill to prevent same-sex ceremonies on military bases. Just in case those gay soldiers start getting uppity now DADT has gone
Kansas decides it really needs to keep it’s unenforceable sodomy law on the books. Kansas is also introducing a law that would allow any kind of discrimination against GBLT people in any context so long as religion is invoked

Also in Canada, one of the groups helping the government in deciding who to award diamond jubilee medals to is an unabashed hate group that dismisses bullying and opposes all equal rights
In Uganda, the homophobic genocide kill the gays bill is coming back AGAIN. And it may pass without being noticed simply because the reporting is so awful about it. Please read the LAW. The Ugandan ethics minister, Simon Lokodo, has also lead a raid against a gay rights meeting and arrested the organiser
Tunisia may have had a revolution – but whatever progress and rights emerge will not apply to gay people as their human rights minister denies gay people having human
The same applies to Libya, with the new authorities declaring that gay people threaten the future of humanity
Liberian president and, horrifyingly, Nobel Peace Prize Winner has made it clear that she supports and endorses homophobic persecution. So peace is valued only when it applies to straight people, then? Oh and it seems Liberia is also looking to increase their acts of genocide against us
Gambian president, Yahya Jammeh has told the UN that gay rights destroy culture. Which is no surprise from a man who is such an utterly vile bigot and have previously threatened to decapitate GBLT people and drive us from our homes

In the US, One Million Moms wants to boycott Macy’s for daring to include gay people in their advertising. I hope that the kids of those million mothers are not gay – because the pain such failed parenting causes is extreme. They’re also against JC Penny’s because it has Ellen as a spokesperson – why? Because she’s a lesbian of course! (And the haters are really out in force on this one) Oh and Toys R Us for selling Archie comics
In New York, Gov Christie says that openly gay supreme court nominee Bruce Harris will recuse himself in any cases involving marriage equality. WHY? Why are only straight people unbiased?

Another reality TV star, Marlo Hampton has decided that anti-gay slurs are fine to use. Nonpology quickly followed when she realised bad press was following her.

Z-list celebrity Connor Cruise has also joined the ranks of those seeking attention through bigotry
