A New Year; A New Name!
The Supreme Court has agreed to finally resolve the national debate over same-sex marriage. The justices will consider four cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, consolidated and heard together. They will hear 2 1/2 hours of oral arguments in April and and issue a ruling in late June.
What do you think the outcome of this historic ruling will be?
Yesterday twins Aaron and Austin Rhodes came out to their father at the same time and posted the touching video on YouTube. The twins live in a different state from their Dad so they called him on the phone to break the news.
Did you come out to your Dad? What was his reaction?
Father Martin Dolan came out as gay last weekend during a sermon in which he supported equal marriage rights for same-sex couples in the Republic of Ireland, where a vote on the issue is slated for May. “I’m gay myself,” he said. The Dublin archdiocese declined comment on the matter pending discussion with Dolan, who is away on a previously scheduled vacation, reports the Belfast Telegraph. One of the congregants said, “We are all very proud of Father Martin. Because he has admitted that he is gay he doesn't change the person that he was before it.”

How do you feel about this?
Carl Sandler, CEO of Daddyhunt, has strong words for recent critics of the announcement by Stephen Fry, 57, and Elliot Spencer, 27, that they are planning to marry.
“What's all the fuss? There are millions - yes millions - of intergenerational relationships in the gay community and many of these started out on Daddyhunt. It's all about the experience, not the age.
Congrats to Elliott and Stephen for showing us that love knows neither gender nor age. Gay men have spent decades fighting for our right to love one another without judgement. Anyone who would deny that to Elliott and Stephen are dealing with a legacy of homophobia that says gay men are only interested in youth and physical perfection. To even question why a younger man would fall in love with someone as handsome and distinguished as Fry is narrow minded.
When people find out that I’m the CEO of Daddyhunt, one of the first assumptions they make is that younger gay men who date older are just gold diggers. We have hundreds of thousands of younger men who appreciate older men, both physically and mentally. Not everyone chases an image of themselves. Thank God! I say, congrats for Elliot and Stephen!"
Florida ended their statewide ban on same-sex marriage at the stroke of midnight Monday, and court clerks in some Florida counties wasted no time, issuing marriage licenses and performing weddings for same-sex couples overnight.
Are you in a rush to marry that special someone? Or would you rather remain a bachelor for life?
