Morning Sweep

In case you missed it yesterday, read this very disturbing story about a French teenager who was raped by a group of men in Dubai and has had a horrible time dealing with the country's "third world" legal system. His mother has established this site.

The Washington Post has a story about Log Cabin Republicans and their support of Giuliani but overall disappointment with the state of the Republican Party.

Mitt Romney received some boos by university students in Iowa and Colorado after trumpeting his support for a Federal Marriage Amendment.

Reform Jews are supporting a fully-inclusive federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

According to a recent poll in Vermont, 47% of voters in the Green Mountain State support same-sex marriage while 41% oppose it.

Unsurprisingly, fear of being out at work hurts both the employee and the employer.

Syracuse University is extending its LGBT programming to its study abroad campus in London.

It was only a matter of time before these started appearing.

I think one of the most disturbing bits of news on the "morning sweep" is that Log Cabin Republicans are backing Guilliani. He is a racist, sexist, homophobe (except when he is cross dressing of living with a gay couple. He is more and more appealing to the most conservative part of the Republican party - and he tells untruths about his role after 9/11.

I have often wondered how there could be Stonewall Republicans - and if they are that because they are fiscal conservatives, they should take a look at Guiliani'a real fiscal record as Mayor of NYC>
