Welcome to The Morning Pride, ThinkProgress LGBT’s 8:45 AM round-up of the latest in LGBT policy, politics, and some culture too! Here’s what we’re reading this morning, but let us know what you’re checking out too. Follow us all day on Twitter at @TPEquality.
- The Minnesota Association of Professional Employees (MAPE) voted Friday to oppose the proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on the ballot in 2012.
- It’s sad that it took a scientific study to prove that men can be bisexual. Couldn’t we just have taken them at their word?
- Fox Nation really seems to like raising a raucous any time gender boundaries are challenged.
- Are there any public ex-gays who aren’t using their self-important ex-gay identity for fame and profit? Randy Thomas is definitely not one of them.
- A lawsuit over the Indiana State Fair stage collapse could challenge the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.
- New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan talked to 60 Minutes about opposing marriage equality (because of incest), opposing women in the priesthood (because Jesus said so), and maintaining celibacy in the priesthood (because the Catholic Church does not cater to public opinion).
- Former NBA all-star Tim Hardaway has come a long way from his “I hate gay people” days and is now standing up for LGBT rights.
- The head of the Evangelical Church of Ghana told a Christian National Youth Camp that if they want to “serve God righteously,” they must “despise homosexuality.” Of course, American Christian leaders say that too.
