“‘Activist judges’ is a code word for gay. The judges being verbally tarred and feathered are those who have decriminalized gay sex, as they once did abortion, and who countenance marriage rights for same-sex couples. This is the animus that dares not speak its name tonight. To paraphrase the ‘Justice Sunday’ flier, now it’s the anti-filibuster campaign that is being abused to protect bias, this time against gay people.”
– Bill Maher speaking to Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show,” April 19, 2005.

“Just like the vice president, the new pope is a Jurassic archconservative who disdains the ‘if it feels good do it’ culture and the revolutionary trends toward diversity and cultural openness since the 60s. The two leaders are a match – absolutists who view the world in stark terms of good and evil, eager to prolong a patriarchal society that prohibits gay marriage and slices up pro-choice U.S. Democratic candidates.”
– Maureen Dowd in the April 23, 2005 New York Times.

“I don’t believe in the Christianity that says one thing and then goes and kills innocent people and tries to rob women of their fundamental human right to control their reproductive lives, or deny people of the same sex their right to be married and have relationships and is judgmental and narrow-minded, and angry and vengeful. That is not the Jesus Christ that I believe in.”
– Jane Fonda on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” April 22, 2005.

“Gays can’t have kids – other than going to the abandoned kids store and getting one or two, or borrowing sperm from someone with more sperm than brains Ñ so by definition they’re out of the marriage game.”
– contributor John Gibson in his March 16, 2005 column.

“I feel like if people want to be committed to each other, I don’t think there should be any problem with that. I don’t judge people on what they do. I just know that love is free, and anybody can feel it, whether it be with someone of the same sex or the opposite sex.”
