California Bans Gay Conversion Therapy for Minors – 10/1/12
          Therapy aimed at changing the sexual orientation of minors who say they are gay has been outlawed in California, the first state to adopt such legislation. California Gov. Jerry Brown announced he had signed the bill on Sunday.
          The bill’s sponsor, Calif. State Sen. Ted Lieu, said the so-called “conversion therapy,” “sexual orientation therapy,” “reparative therapy,” or “sexual orientation change efforts” — amounts to “psychological child abuse.”
          “No one should stand idly by while children are being psychological abused, and anyone who forces a child to try to change their sexual orientation must understand this is unacceptable,” Lieu said in a statement released Sunday…  Photo

          …support, strong support has come from Illinois, where Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel gave a decided and unexpected push to the effort when he mentioned it as the third item on his list of legislative priorities in the state capitol of Springfield last Tuesday, when he was questioned by reporters whether he would circumvent Gov. Pat Quinn with deals, now that there is a veto-proof Democratic majority in both houses of the state legislature.
          After prioritizing “retirement security and pension reform”, Emanuel noted: “I will continue to advocate that we also pass marriage equality and end the discrimination on the books.”…

For Gay Catholics, an Alternative to the Collection Plate – 11/20/12
          …Indeed, gift cards, which cannot be redeemed for cash, allow us to reaffirm our commitment to the clergy. Over the past several years, Catholic priests have had their image sullied in the public square, largely because of misguided bishops who chose to protect the church's reputation instead of removing child abusers from the ranks. The entire profession suffered as a result…
          …This non-cash tithing could result in an economic revival for Catholic parishes all over the country. It need not preclude cash gifts for specific Catholic charities and causes, like the St. Vincent de Paul Society or foreign missions. It would simply keep the anti-marriage equality movement from using faithful congregants as a major source of revenue. In this way, mainstream Catholics -the majority of whom support marriage equality for same-sex couples - can send an unmistakable message to Catholic bishops: We support our congregations and the clergy who serve them, but we also believe that love, happiness, and equal rights for everyone are part of God's plan.
