Via Bil Browning / Belirico: Just when you thought the gay agenda was complicated

Do you ever get frustrated with the seeming lack of planning around LGBT issues? Tired of the gay agenda looking more like a kindergarten drawing than a roadmap for success? 0439358078.jpgWeary of trying to decipher what the hell is really going on and how it all relates?
Author J.K. Rowling charts out the plots for all of her Harry Potter books and a page of the graph for her fifth book, Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix, has been leaked to the public. After taking a peek at this (and trying to decipher her handwriting), you'll realize that the gay agenda has a lot of work to do to be as organized as a children's book about magic.
Maybe what our movement needs is a good Scourgify spell casting.

Via JMG: Feds Denounce Pet Insurance Story

In reference to the post several below this one, the Office Of Personnel Management has issued this statement:
"Stories claiming that the federal government offers pet insurance to federal employees, and juxtaposing that benefit with the fact that the federal government cannot under current law provide health insurance benefits to federal employees' domestic partners are grossly inaccurate. While Aetna is a participating carrier in the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), the pet insurance product offered by Aetna is not a federal benefit, nor has it been listed as a benefit in any OPM prepared or reviewed materials. Aetna, on its own initiative, offers a variety of discount products to its members, including gym memberships, weight loss programs, eyewear, vitamins, etc. Pet insurance is one of these products.

"Aetna has apologized for using the reference to FEHBP in its communication on this discount program. OPM regrets that Aetna's error is being cited by some as evidence that same-sex domestic partner health insurance benefits for federal employees are not a priority by OPM and the Administration. Nothing could be further from the truth.

"The Obama Administration believes in granting equal rights and benefits to gay and lesbian federal employees as demonstrated by the President's strong support of the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act, which will provide full benefits to same-sex partners of federal workers. The Director of OPM has testified in both the Senate and the House in favor of its passage."
