President Barack Obama fist bumped an employee at an Austin barbecue restaurant, after he loudly protested for gay rights.

According to the Austin Chronicle, 32-year-old Daniel Rugg Webb seized the opportunity when Obama made an impromptu stop in Franklin Barbecue, Austin.

As the President approached the till to order, Webb slapped the counter and yelled “equal rights for gay people!”
Undeterred, Obama asked Webb if he was gay, to which he replied “only when I have sex”. Webb said: “That’s when he laughed and said, ‘Bump me’. “That’s my favourite part because it was cool to get a joke in. In all the photos [all over the Internet], I look like a dead fish, but it was cool.”

Leon and Andrew have been together for eight years – more than most married couples that I know. They are truly best friends, genuinely good people and a ton of fun to be around. Their wedding was harvest themed, as they are farmers, and the design was done by Phillip Rice – the most dedicated and creative designer that I’ve had the pleasure of working with thus far. Every detail was absolutely incredible and the overall look of the wedding was a stunning site.

These arguments are not those of serious people. Though it seems almost unnecessary to explain, here are the reasons why.” Even assuming the state has a legitimate interest in promoting procreation, the court fails to see, and defendant never explains, how the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage has any effect whatsoever on procreation among heterosexual spouses. Excluding same-sex couples from marriage does not change the number of heterosexual couples who choose to get married, the number who choose to have children, or the number of children they have.

The state’s attempts to connect the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage to its interest in economic stability and in ‘ensuring humanity’s continued existence’ are at best illogical and even bewildering … The court can think of no other conceivable legitimate reason for Kentucky’s laws excluding same-sex couples from marriage.



[A]s this Court has respectfully explained, in America even sincere and long-held religious views do not trump the constitutional rights of those who happen to have been out-voted.

"You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me”
