It's going to be a tense Thanksgiving at the McCain manse. Please pass the thinly veiled contempt? The NOH8 Campaign, a photo project that collected images of people with duct tape over their mouths to protest Prop 8, released a video yesterday about bullying and suicides among gay youth. The video features celebrities like Denise Richards, Gene Simmons, Dave Navarro — and Cindy McCain, whose husband led the GOP filibuster that prevented Congress from voting on a Don't Ask, Don't Tell repeal and whose presidential campaign ran on a platform that opposed gay marriage. After sharing statistics like the fact that a gay teen commits suicide in America every seventeen minutes, the video says, "You might be asking yourself, how can these statistics be so high? What's convincing these kids that things won't get better?"
At which point, we see Cindy McCain for the first time, saying, "Our political and religious leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future ... They can't serve our country openly ... Our government treats the LGBT community like second-class citizens, why shouldn't [the bullies]?"

Gay marriage -> Restoring "Hope of Love"
To Children In Early Childhood -> Marriage Equality
March 23, 2010 – by Fr. Marty Kurylowicz
Marriage Equality, like Galileo, is the truth about the facts of growing up gay. Marriage Equality will not become a reality until people learn that its most vital purpose is that it restores the “hope of love” to children in early childhood – essential to their development and well-being for life. Without Marriage Equality we teach children how to hate love and how to be mean and indifferent to people as adults. With all due respect, without Marriage Equality we would teach them in much the same way as has been shown by Benedict XVI and the hierarchy, especially in their lack of care and protection of children for decades.
