More than 11,000 people were marching against gay marriage in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico on Sept. 10th. Queue our hero, a 12-year-old Mexican boy, who stood against the crowd as a solitary voice of reason against the tide of oppression.
Afterwards, the child said, "I have an uncle who is gay and I hate the hatred."
Same-sex marriage has been legalized in Mexico City and 9 of the nation's 31 states. There are challenges currently underway in the 22 other states.
The Kentucky clerk defiant in her opposition to marry same-sex couples has been jailed for contempt of court.
Kim Davis was taken into federal custody today after a hearing with Judge David L. Bunning, another legal defeat for the clerk who has said issuing same-sex marriage licenses violates her religious convictions.
"The court cannot condone the willful disobedience of its lawfully issued order," the judge said. "If you give people the opportunity to choose which orders they follow, that's what potentially causes problems."
The judge said Davis would be released once she follows his original order to issue marriage licenses.
Until then—we hear that Orange is the New Black, Kim.
"Under God's authority," is the reason Kentucky clerk Kim Davis continued to refuse to issue any marriage licenses today.
Hours after the Supreme Court refused to intervene on her behalf, Davis met with one gay couple and told them she would still not issue marriage licenses because of her religious convictions.
The clerk has not issued any marriage licenses since the marriage equality Supreme Court ruling in June. And her battle through the courts has drawn a national audience.
"I've asked you all to leave. You are interrupting my business," Davis is heard saying before walking back into her office.
After the blood-boiling encounter, lawyers for the same-sex couple who originally sued Davis filed a motion
to find her in contempt of court. The motions seeks fines and not jail time.
Just a reminder: Kim Davis has been married four times. Just let that sink in.
Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns, Jr. recently sent a letter to Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, in an attempt to discourage linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo's support of a state ballot initiative that would legalize gay marriage.

If gay marriage becomes legal, are you worried that all of a sudden you'll start thinking about penis? "Oh sh*t. Gay marriage just passed. Gotta get me some of that hot dong action!" Will all of your friends suddenly turn gay and refuse to come to your Sunday Ticket grill-outs? (Unlikely, since gay people enjoy watching football too.)
DC has revealed that a major character is soon going to come out as gay, while Marvel announced the engagement of superhero Northstar to his boyfriend, Kyle.
These events don't sit will with One Million Moms, whose anti-gay agenda has also led them to protest the wedding of Archie Comics' first gay character, Kevin Keller.
"Children desire to be just like superheroes," said the group in a statement. "Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, 'I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?'"
The statement goes on to accuse the publishers of trying to "indoctrate [sic] impressionable young minds."
Marvel and DC have yet to respond to the homophobic comments.
