Morning Sweep

...And we're back!

The New York Times has a Q&A with the new head of the NAACP and includes questions on the organization's stance on marriage equality.

The logic in this column against marriage equality in the Wall Street Journal is simply maddening.

The Boston Globe editorializes eloquently in favor of MA’s equivalent of our GENDA bill to ban discrimination based on gender identity and expression.

Leaders of an anti-gay group in Maine say they have submitted enough signatures to force a referendum on the state’s same-sex marriage law, which passed in May.

The United Methodists have defeated amendments that would have made church membership open to all Christians regardless of sexual orientation.

The L.A. Times praises the Episcopal Church, however, for its recent progress toward more inclusion of the LGBT community.

LGBT advocates rallied yesterday in Tel Aviv, Israel, to protest the killing of two people and the wounding of 11 others after a masked gunman opened fire at a center for gay youth on Saturday night.

Activists also protested in Australia over the weekend as the party in charged voted against changing its current ban on marriage for same-sex couples.
