It seemed like such a simple request.  She wrote to The Honorable Mike Diven, Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.  Her mission?  To ascertain how Diven would vote on the proposed anti-gay marriage amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution. What Diven offered in response is a testament to why the Democrats should be able […]

GLBT activist Mike Rogers has significantly ramped up the gay response to the culture wars with this latest posting on blogactive.com   I fully support Mike's tactics of outing the closeted hypocrites whose actions harm our community.
