It's seemingly unacceptable to hold views that differ from the gay Thought Police, writes Michael Lucas, expecially if it's an opinion on two gay businessmen who hosted a U.S. Senator.

The country singer opens up about the personal message in the song and her faith.
During the NBC Upfronts in New York City this morning, country music legend and gay icon Dolly Parton made a surprise appearance, looking fabulous, as usual, in a rainbow sequined getup. She was there to announce that the network had just greenlit her project “Coat of Many Colors,” a TV movie based on her Tennessee upbringing.
The movie is titled after Parton’s 1971 song “Coat of Many Colors,” which the singer often describes as being one of her favorites from her catalog. It tells the story of how her mother once sewed together a coat for Dolly out of old rags. The family didn’t have much money, but her mother was determined to make something beautiful for her daughter to have. Dolly loved the coat, but when she wore it to school, she was teased relentlessly by her classmates.
Of course, Parton got the last laugh in the end. The song reached reached #4 on the U.S. country singles chart when it was first released. Not only that, but she became a huge international star, and her story has inspired countless people the world over. We can hardly wait to see it told on the small screen.
“Coat of Many Colors” will be the first in a series of standalone TV movies based on Parton’s songs, stories and life. No word yet on how many cans of Aqua Net the network plans to budget for, or if Parton will be appearing in any of the movies or just serving as executive producer.
Check out this video of Parton performing “Coat of Many Colors” back in 1979.

Age can be an especially touchy subject for anyone, but it seems even more divisive in the gay community. Youth is perceived as attractive but ungrounded, and age is conversely seen as established but unsexy.
Of course, anyone with a good head on their shoulders can attest to the fact that those stereotypes are just as easily shattered as they are fulfilled.
But how do you really feel about age?
Here’s a candid look at guys’ views on the ticking clock. As one interviewee puts it, “I would like that person to bring home for Christmas and Thanksgiving, and I would also like to bang twinks on the side.” Points for honesty if nothing else.
Although a priest from Donegal announced last week that he intends to vote in favor of same-sex marriage, six bishops have made public statements arguing against marriage equality.r
Archbishop Michael Neary of Tuam, the most senior prelate in the west of Ireland, said the bishops were "not disparaging anyone" or being "disrespectful to same-sex relationships".r
In a statement read out to congregations on Sunday, Neary incorrectly told the congregation that the referendum is about the family and not gay marriage.r
The wording of the referendum is clearly stated:r
“Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex.”r
Neary insisted that he is neither being conservative or “mean spirited” in his opposition, arguing - again, incorrectly - that civil partnerships give same-sex couples the same rights as heterosexual couples.r
Neary’s views were echoed by Bishop Brendan Leahy of Limerick, Bishop John Kirby of Clonfert, Bishop Ray Browne of Kerry, Bishop Phonsie Cullinan of Waterford and Lismore and Bishop Leo O'Reilly of Kilmore.r
Groups of ISIS militants have reportedly begun luring gay men into private locations with the promise of dates, only to confront the men and murder them for being homosexual. Hisbah, a conservative, religious police force associated with ISIS, has taken up the practice to continue with the group’s practice of ‘proving’ that people are gay. The militants are justifying their murders under ISIS’s own draconian penal code.r
In the past ISIS has made a point of targeting queer people in the past though it was unclear whether or not the accusations of homosexuality were legitimate or merely an excuse to eliminate dissenting voices. These impromptu sting operations typically result in the immediate execution of queer men by means of being thrown from roofs. According to the Daily Mail, those captured by ISIS under the pretense of meeting up for same-sex dates are sometimes given a chance at freedom in exchange for hefty ransoms.
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO and GOP presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina was asked about the upcoming SCOTUS marriage ruling in an interview over the weekend with the political blog Caffeinated Thoughts.r
Separating herself from some of her rivals like Scott Walker, Fiorina said she does not support a federal marriage amendment.r
“I think the Supreme Court ruling will become the law of the land, and however much I may agree or disagree with it, I wouldn’t support an amendment to reverse it."r
Then she swiveled to the hot conservative topic of "religious liberty".r
"I very much hope that we would come to a place now in this nation where we can support their decision and at the same time support people to have, to hold religious views and to protect their right to exercise those views.I think this is a nation that should be able to accept that government shouldn’t discriminate on how it provides benefits and that people have a right to their religious views and those views need to be protected. We need to protect religious liberty in this country."r
Watch the clip, AFTER THE JUMP...r
On the topic of whether she agrees or disagrees with SCOTUS ruling on the issue, it's the former. Fiorina said in February that "the worst thing the Supreme Court can do" is rule on marriage.r
