People Who Became Nouns
Vidkun Quisling betrayed Norway to Nazi Germany and became leader of occupied Norway’s collaborationist government. He was executed by firing squad by his countrymen after the war. His very name, quisling, has come to mean “traitor.”
Sucked to be a non-collaborating Norwegian Quisling after the war, no doubt.
Santorum restated his position on birth control yesterday: Santorum believes contraception should be illegal, that states should be able to ban it, and, if elected president, Santorum has pledged to “completely defund” federal funding for contraception. Birth control has “dangers,” says Santorum, because “it’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”
"It’s amazing to me that so many Christians have chastised me for advocating people avoid the red kettles by claiming that it will hurt homeless and hungry (straight) people. They overlook the fact that the Salvation Army discriminates against LGBT people and have threatened to close soup kitchens in many cities if required to abide by non-discrimination laws. Who’s willing to hurt homeless people of all sexual orientations over LGBT human rights? The Salvation Army is."
And the money you and your boyfriend refrain from tossing in the SA’s red kettles? Donate that money to charities that don’t discriminate.— Dan Savage
Bill Johnson, a former top state official who made a failed bid for governor in 2010, has been living a secret life in New Zealand as a sperm donor for lesbian couples, a New Zealand newspaper reported today.
Johnson finished fifth among a field of seven candidates for governor in the 2010 GOP primary, capturing less than 2 percent of the vote. He ran as a conservative Christian who opposed gay marriage - but also advocated for the legalization of gambling.
Apparently Gay Parenting is fine…
