Gay Star News: LGBT Nativity scene vandalized; Kelly Clarkson supports Ron Paul, Rick Perry clueless and more!

Did someone say it’s a quiet news week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve?

Not over at Gay Star News!

Me and my colleagues have been busy putting out stories all week.

Today, I chatted with Rev. Dan Lewis of Claremont United Methodist Church who woke on Christmas morning to find that an LGBT-inclusive Nativity display in front of the church had been vandalized.

The display featured wooden silhouettes of two same-sex couples holding hands next to a heterosexual couple holding hands. Here is a LINK to the story.

Another piece I wrote today was on Texas Gov. Rick Perry who is one of the most anti-gay candidates vying for the Republican nomination for president. Incredibly, Perry drew a blank during a campaign stop in Iowa earlier today when he was asked about the landmark Lawrence v. Texas case which struck down the state’s anti-sodomy law and similar laws in 13 other states.

“I’m not taking the bar exam…I don’t know what a lot of legal cases involve,” he told reporters at one point. Here is a LINK to that story. It’s a doozy!

And speaking of Republican candidates for president, Ron Paul got an unexpected endorsement today: from Kelly Clarkson. The first-ever American Idol champion immediately got flack from some of her 925,000 followers who pointed out alleged homophobic and racist newsletters from Paul in decades past.

‘I love all people and could care less if you like men or women,; Clarkson wrote. ‘I have never heard that Ron Paul is a racist or homophobe’

Here is a LINK to that story.

And finally, I have a story for the third day running on Chicago’s Archbishop Francis George who insists on standing by his analogy comparing the LGBT community to the Ku Klux Klan. Truth Wins Out wants him to resign and is taking out a full-page ad in Sunday’s Chicago Tribune to drive that point home.

Here is a LINK to that story.
