Watch: New Zealand MP on Marriage Equality

Last week, New Zealand became the 13th country to recognize same sex marriage.  Maurice Williamson, Member of Parliament, gave this wonderfully funny and spot on  speech.  Demonstrating how silly the opposition is is much more effective than arguing with them.

The main point of his speech is summed up here:

“So don’t make this into a big deal.  This is fantastic for people this affects,  but for the rest of us, life will go on.”

He also quoted Deuteronomy 1:29.  ”Be ye not afraid”

Boy Scouts Fail

“We’ll tolerate you until you grow up, then we’ll shun you”

Nike Set to Sponsor First Gay Athlete

87680546

Nike wants to sponsor the first openly gay athlete to come out on a professional sports team.  According to Rick Well, the former Phoenix Suns executive who came out as gay in 2011, says the company is ready.  According to a report in Bloomberg,

“…the first openly gay team-sport athlete — provided he’s a recognizable name — would earn millions in endorsements and speaking engagements from companies seeking to capture more of a U.S. lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender adult population whose annual buying power he pegs at almost $800 billion.”

It sounds like the incentives for the first gay athlete are growing.  I could have never imagined how quickly minds have changed.

Imagine, one day soon, gays will be “so 2013″!  Sounds wonderful to me!
