I'd like to take a look at the article, but when I click on the link in the iPhone app it constantly redirects me to some "Twitter Widget Log Helper" thing and I can't stop it from doing it

Here's the quote from the column: "In his song 'Mercy,' Bono stated that love is 'charity and brings with it a clarity.'"

And here's a link to the Right Wing Watch article about the column: Pastor Claims Ellen DeGeneres' Marriage Is Destroying America | Right Wing Watch

lol, nicely misquoted. Love is justice, NOT charity is the original lyric.

Quote:
Tomczak writes in his column today that he was merely trying to create a respectful and civil dialogue regarding homosexuality, before insisting that Ellen and her “partner” (scare quotes his) are harming children and their caregivers.
Yeaaaa, something's not right here..

Quote:
The true Christian Church must stand as a "sign of contradiction" amidst ever-changing cultural trends. With kindness and courage we must remain faithful to the truth, whether it is popular or not.
Yes... you should remain faithful to the truth. First start seeing it perhaps???

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Memphis and I are now, officially, married.

It was emotionally overwhelming. I am so grateful.

We've only met once (St Pats 2007 NYC), but I remember how great of a couple you guys both seemed at the time, glad it has worked out so well for you both. All the best!

Congrats, Irvine. Good luck to you and Memphis. Prove all of the "homosexuality will desecrate the sanctity of marriage" types wrong by having a long, fulfilling relationship (which, from what I can tell, you already have).
