Bill Nelson reverses opposition to marriage equality

Florida Sen. Bill Nelson reversed his opposition to gay marriage on Thursday, joining a swell of moderate Democrats to do so recently as public support for gay marriage has grown.

In a statement to the Tampa Bay Times editorial board, Nelson wrote:

"It is generally accepted in American law and U.S. society today '... that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.' I believe that. The civil rights and responsibilities for one must pertain to all.

3 ways for Cardinal Dolan to show his 'love' for gay people

LGBT people are rightly getting tired of merely hearing of this so-called “love” from the Roman Catholic hierarchy, among other places. Especially when this “love” is followed by rejected calls for conversation, and no attempt at understanding, as it always has been.

So does Cardinal Dolan actually love LGBT people? Or does he “love” LGBT people, as long as he doesn’t actually have to listen to any, or learn about their relationships, or speak with their children?
