Pope Francis, in a seismic shift, has broken with the Catholic Church on the subject of homosexuality, supporting same-sex civil unions for the first time.

The Pope made the remarks in a new documentary, Franceso by Evgeny Afineevsky, that premiered Wednesday at the Rome Film Festival. He said:

All The Ginsburg News You Can Handle, or Don't Give Up! — 12-PACK Comments (0)

8afcf571039224f12d57758001830fc6

EXTRATV: RIP Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a truly trailblazing, honorable American.

MEDIUM: President Obama remembers Justice Ginsburg.

NYT: Do NOT give up hope. Ginsburg's death is a catastrophe, but Democrats raised $12.5 million for Senate candidates via ActBlue in the two hours following her death. We must win.

NBC NEWS: Hundreds gathered outside the SCOTUS to mourn the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

TWITTER: Lindsey Graham has made it explicitly clear that he is against confirming a SCOTUS judge in the final year of any presidency. He said this:

I want you to use my words against me: If there is a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say, “Lindsey Graham said, 'Let's let the next president — whoever it might be — make that nomination,'” and you could use my words against me and you'd be absolutely right.

AXIOS: There is 100% chance that Trump will nominate Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ginsburg. He ghoulishly told people privately last year that he was “saving” her among his picks to replace Ginsburg. Barrett is in the mold of Scalia, a so-called originalist, and is adamantly anti-abortion, so Trump correctly intuited how grotesquely satisfying it would be for him to erase Ginsburg's legacy — as he nearly has Obama's — with such a pick.

Sign HERE to Protest Seating of a New Justice Prior to Inauguration Day!

POLITICO: Trump/McConnell could intentionally delay the confirmation of any justice until post-Election Day, but will install one prior to Inauguration Day (if Biden wins). By nominating someone now, Trump will tell his depressed base that he is the guy to trust when it comes to putting anti-abortion justices on the Court, but by forestalling a confirmation, he would dangle that carrot until after November 3, winning him the maximum number of votes possible.

Donate to McConnell's opponent Amy McGrath HERE.

Of course, there are other strategies. Please investigate this thread on Twitter, which suggests more competitive races than McConnell's, and explains why — although it was satisfying for me to give Amy money — the money, if you have limited resources, could be better spent elsewhere.

TPM: Ginsburg's death will be immediately (as in, prior to any replacement) impactful on the Court, and may have just sealed the fate of the entire ACA.

MOTHER JONES: There is a rising appetite among Democrats for a Democratic-controlled (fingers crossed) Senate to add justices to the SCOTUS in order to even out the injustice visited upon the Court by Trump's stolen Kavanaugh seat and now his planned Ginsburg hypocrisy. I'm all in. I wouldn't just add two, either.

DAILY KOS: We slide ever more dangerously toward autocracy: The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, an independent federal board, is shelving its investigation into how to protect minority voting rights after its four conservative members voted to abandon it. Forty-something days before the most important election in U.S. history.

TWITTER: Doug Collins, running for the Senate from Georgia, gloated over Ginsburg's death on Twitter, instead mourning aborted fetuses.

KANSAS CITY: The Senate race in Kansas is far more competitive than it should be, considering the state is deep red. The race is closer than any in almost 50 years there. Democrat Barbara Bollier is behind Republican Roger Marshall — but according to FiveThirtyEight, she is not out of the running. In a blue-wave election, she could prevail:

FiveThirtyEight’s “lite” forecast — which only uses polling data — gives Bollier a 33% chance of winning. Meanwhile, the “classic” version — fundraising and a state’s partisan lean along with polls — puts Bollier’s odds at 28%.

Ex-Ex-Gay: Randy Thomas Speaks About Mike Pence's Conversion Therapy Support, The Drag Queen Who Saved His Life & Marrying A Dude Comments (0)

Randy-thomas-ex-gay-boycultureHe's gay again, and en-gay-ged! (Image via Truth Wins Out)

Randy Thomas, who was once a vice president of Exodus International — the ex-gay group that shuttered in 2013 — is now a proud gay man, but only after years of smearing his fellow queers.

His video story is fascinating in that now that he's completely away from the anti-gay mentality, he freely admits to how drag queens and lesbians saved his life before he decided to become an Evangelical Christian and renounce his homosexuality.

He makes a good case for why we should forgive these people who have caused so much damage (spoiler: it all goes back to religion), citing all the damage he endured that created his former self ...
