Huff Love

One of my favorite places to get my healthy “news intake” for the day is The Huffington Post. It combines video, pictures, articles and blogs from media such as ABC, BBC, Bloomberg, CNN, E! Online, MSNBC, Reuters and TIME, while also adding some of its own, original pieces.

One of the topics that’s been popping up a lot in the news lately is the “great gay marriage debate” following President Obama’s gay marriage endorsement. I have been following it on Huff and can summarize it up with this: What do Baptist ministers have in common with gays? Apparently nothing, according to two ministers.


The most recent story is of a Maryland Baptist minister, Dennis Leatherman, who admitted, “My flesh kind of likes the idea of killing gays.” And this man is allowed

to stand in front of a congregation of men, women and children? Scary.

Read and listen to his entire sermon here.

A video of a North Carolina Baptist minister’s sermon went viral once people heard his message: “We should put gays and lesbians in an electrified pen.” Really?

Huff had extensive coverage on this minister, Charles Worley, and his sermon on its site thanks to CNN videos and articles. Five days ago, thousands protested his actions, waving signs and screaming for justice. One of my favorite signs read, “Don’t Fence Me In.”

“Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals. Have that fence electrified so they can’t get out. You know what, in a few years, they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce,” Worley said.

Watch the viral video:

Society allows people to voice their own, negative opinions but when some do in such a hurtful way, it’s abusing the right.

Huff had extensive coverage on this thanks to the way it operates. It pulled video, pictures, audio and blog posts from multiple websites and compiled them into a comprehensive, timely report on the “great gay marriage debate.”
