Rep. Denver Riggleman of Virginia appears to be at war with his own party after his Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives decided he’s not homophobic enough for them. It all started when Riggleman agreed to officiate a gay wedding over the weekend.

The Anglican Church of Canada has failed to vote in favour of recognising same-sex marriages. Despite having a lot of support, the motion failed to carry the two-thirds of support from each delegation that it needed. Although the Order of Laity and the Order of Clergy voted heavily in favour, with 80% and 73% in favour respectively, the Order of Bishops failed to reach the necessary two-thirds threshold with only 62% in favour. Had the bill passed, it would have allowed...

A married man has reached out for advice regarding his bisexual past. In a letter to Dear Abby, he wants to know: should he tell his wife he used to hook up with guys on a regular basis? “I have been married 36 years to a woman who has saved my life and soul,” the man, identified only as “Different Person Now” writes. “We are both faithful to God and to our marriage, sharing the love of our family.” “Prior to...
