Last quote about Homosexuality

Jeremy Tedesco
Tolerance is a two-way street. Creative professionals who engage in the expression of ideas shouldn't be threatened with fines and jail simply for having a particular point of view about marriage that the government may not favor.feedback

Jack Phillips

I have no problem serving anybody – gay, straight, Muslim, Hindu. Everybody that comes in my door is welcome here, and any of the products I normally sell I'm glad to sell to anybody.feedback

Jack Phillips

I'll make you birthday cakes, shower cakes, cookies, brownies. I just can't make a cake for a same-sex wedding.feedback

Jack Phillips

I'm being forced to use my creativity, my talents and my art for an event – a significant religious event – that violates my religious faith.feedback

Charlie Craig

It's not about the cake. It is about discrimination. To this day, we still question whether talking about our relationship when we go in somewhere, we could be discriminated against again.feedback

Charlie Craig

We asked for a cake. We didn't ask for a piece of art or for him to make a statement for us. He simply turned us away because of who we are.feedback

Louise Melling - American Civil Liberties Union

This Justice Department has already made its hostility to the rights of LGBT people and so many others crystal clear. But this brief was shocking, even for this administration. What the Trump Administration is advocating for is nothing short of a constitutional right to discriminate.feedback

Moisés Kaufman

You know, I was a gay man coming from Caracas; there were no role models. In it, there were four portrayals of gay people, and I remember having such a cathartic experience. All of a sudden, my life became possible. I bought this book then, and I have kept it all these years. You can see it is yellow. To be directing the play now is incredible.feedback

Lisa Phillips

This show is attempting to identify without codifying something that may be completely alien to 20th-century folks still grappling with feminist issues and gay rights.feedback

Johnny Fratto

What's going on, ladies?' he asked with that mischievous superstar smile that made that f - - --- millions of dollars.feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

Her presence spoke volumes about the importance of whatever activism we were working on. She really was an iconic leader, one that people could see and understand. She was the grande dame of civil rights for gay Americans.feedback

Marc Fliedner

She was extraordinarily engaged in everything politically that was happening in the moment.feedback

Yigal Guetta

I would like to clarify that a handful of people are trying to spread some twisted things in my name, as if I gave legitimacy to forbidden acts. This is a lie and a distortion.feedback

Suzy Ben Zvi

God will repay all the Shas saints for what they did to him. The tradition of family is the holiest tradition in Judaism.feedback

Roi Lachmanovich

The party turned its back on a huge sector of the public that does not at all wish to concede on the importance of family.feedback

Debra Messing

I wanted her to have a noticeable feminist strain. The real world is a scary, divisive place right now, especially for women, whose rights are being attacked and autonomy challenged.feedback

Sarah Kate Ellis

So what. I find Jack's level of gay to be a ridiculous subject to discuss. How can you be too gay?feedback

David Kohan

I would imagine that there will probably be a bit more blowback. But saying the most un-P.C. things has always been part of what makes the show funny, so I'm hoping we get away with it.feedback

Megan Mullally

She's the same but worse. And I can't tell you how fun that is. Some actors spend their lives desperately trying to distance themselves from their sitcom characters. I'll play Karen until I die if they let me.feedback

David Kohan

Jack and Will are dealing with the fact that they're not 30 anymore. There is real emotion there, whether it is anxiety or sadness or fear, which makes it really powerful. And they deal with it, of course, in absurd ways.feedback

Eric McCormack

It's actually something kind of wonderful, and I think it will start a discussion. It's people in midlife saying, Hey, wait. I've tried, but I still haven't found anything better than this.feedback

Debra Messing

Next, we'll be doing a geriatric version. It'll be 'Golden Girls' 2.0 except set in Boca and everyone will have bamboo purses.feedback

Sarah Kate Ellis

We can dissect specific characters until the cows come home. What we know for sure is that this series had a profoundly positive impact on the culture during its original run, and we need its help again. LGBTQ acceptance is slipping in this culture, and hate crimes are on the rise.feedback

Eric McCormack

Nobody is coming back to this show with their tail between their legs. Nobody has been sitting around waiting for someone to employ them – please, please, revive my old show. Not one of us.feedback

Robert Greenblatt

A high-maintenance actor needs a water! In five seconds! Or it's somebody's job!feedback

Megan Mullally

They're leaving it to the character who is best friends with Donnie and Melania to inadvertently be the one delivering the most vicious jabs. Little doses. You can't write anything too specific because – honey! – by the time it airs Trump will have done 10 other horrible things.feedback

Jae Bearhat

At the very least, it resurrects discussions over 'gay genes' and the concept of homosexuality and queerness as physically identifiable traits. Setting it within that sort of strictly biological framework can easily lead to perpetuation of ideas around curing, preventing and natal identification of homosexuality, which can backslide into precedents around it as a physiological deviation or mental illness that needs 'treatment.feedback

Michael Strangelove

If you want to get famous, the first and fastest path is to attach yourself to an event that's bigger than you. Not that that was his strategy, but it proved very successful. It was unusual, it was early on, it was a part of the exploding gay pride culture. It was the right time and the right place and the right type of performance. Attach it to a popular celebrity and all the stars aligned.feedback

John Howard

I believe there is a conflict here between those seeking the right for same-sex marriage and the rights of the child, and I believe the right of the child to have a mother and father should be preserved.feedback

Penny Wong

There are hurtful things being said. They might be said politely, but they are hurtful and inaccurate, about our families, about our children.feedback

Edith Edie Windsor

Because I'm an old lady! I am going to be 83 this month. And we had a nice life, and it was enough, and that was kind of my feeling before the film, and then before the suit. My purpose now is this, and I've kind of fallen in love with the whole gay community, no question. So I want everybody to profit from this.feedback

Alison Gingeras

He invoked all of us to rebel, that it was the inherent quality of human beings to be rebellious, to move society, to be individual.feedback

Anthony D. Romero - American Civil Liberties Union

One simply cannot write the history of the gay rights movement without reserving immense credit and gratitude for Edie Windsor.feedback

Todd Grantham

At the end of the day, we want the ball. So you should've just fallen on that.feedback

Robert Kaplan

Representing Edie Windsor was and will always be the greatest honor of my life. She will go down in the history books as a true American hero. I also know that her memory will be a blessing not only to every LGBT person on this planet, but to all who believe in the concept of b'tzelem elohim, or equal dignity for all.feedback

Judith Kasen-Windsor

I lost my beloved spouse, Edie, and the world lost a tiny but tough as nails fighter for freedom, justice and equality. Edie was the light of my life. She will always be the light for the LGBTQ community which she loved so much and which loved her right back.feedback

Jonathan Lovitz

I learned about her passing while a signed copy of her decision hangs above my desk. My fiancé, Steve, and I owe her and those who fought in the courts with her for the very fact that we can be married this year. We hope to always make her proud and keep fighting in her honor.feedback

David France

Almost single-handedly, Marsha P. Johnson and her best friend, Sylvia Rivera, touched off a revolution in the way we talk about gender today. Their names should be household words. But Marsha's life was cut tragically short and Sylvia died shortly thereafter, the victim of a broken heart.feedback

David France

Getting to know their story through the investigation undertaken by Victoria Cruz, a seminal activist in her own right, has been one of the great honors of my career. Now, with Netflix as our distribution partner, I am confident the legacy of these tremendous women will never be forgotten.feedback

Kelly Dodd

Lizzie and I have been friends for awhile – she was probably one of my first friends. And we went to work out a long time ago and we had a mutual friend that said while we were working out, Oh, Eddie was a spin instructor here. And everyone thought that he was gay.' That was the first time someone told me that.feedback

Ian Ganassi

I was very naïve and didn't realize that he was gay until later on. I remember seeing those photos of him, and it was a very '70s look. But there was something more to it. He was a very beautiful man, and I identify as heterosexual. His eyes just reinforced the feeling that there was something supernatural about his abilities. There was an aura about him.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

We support marriage equality and believe all Australians deserve the freedom to marry the person they love, and to have their relationships recognised with the same dignity and legal protections as their neighbours, friends, and family. So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it's worth the trade-off with my own privacy.feedback

Clayton Jedam

The meeting that I went to had a lot of first timers, people that have never door-knocked or phone-banked before. There was a real sense that people are coming together to show their support.feedback

Clayton Jedam

The mood was energetic and positive. It was in a bar and was very casual. There is a general consensus that we shouldn't be having this postal survey, but if we have to ... we're going to win it.feedback

Andrew Eggins

It's overwhelming to know that so many people believe in equality for all. To be approached by strangers in the streets and told that they hope that one day I can marry the man that I love makes me feel so proud of who I am and what we are fighting for.feedback

Andy Copley

It is frustrating that we have to have a survey on love, a basic human right. Love should be equal and unattested. Now that the decision on marriage equality is so close, it would be empowering to think that this [rally] could cause such a great change for our nation.feedback

Andrew Eggins

I think if we want to stand a chance at winning, we must focus on putting together a strong and respectful fight rather than getting caught up with something that cannot be changed.feedback

Shelley Argent

The decision by the high court was very disappointing, but it doesn't mean we give up.feedback

Sally Rugg

Our secret weapon is one-on-one conversations between ordinary Australians. Connecting with voters and making sure the huge momentum for marriage equality translates into 'yes' votes.feedback

Shelley Argent

I have two sons, one straight and one gay. I want them to both have the same rights, responsibilities and privileges as each other. They are both loved equally, both pay taxes and contribute to society equally with their careers and talents. Fair is fair.feedback

Clayton Jedam

I'm … worried that as this is a non-compulsory and non-binding [vote], that people won't return their votes. Even though we know a majority of people support marriage equality, we have to make sure those people actually send their papers back.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Oh, puh-leez. President Trump is not an “independent,” as right-wing Republicans now would like to believe. (Didn’t they spend the campaign trying to convince fellow Republicans that he was really a conservative?) Trump ran for the GOP nomination, captured the party and now hypes every bad idea that the party’s most extreme elements have espoused — tax cuts for the rich, anti-immigrant hysteria, fear-mongering on crime, know-nothingism on climate change, anti-government animus, and bigotry toward the LGBT community (hence the totally unnecessary ban on transgender recruits to the military). Much as Republicans might like to disown him, they cannot. They remain responsible for nominating the most unfit person ever to hold the office.feedback

Nicholas Rule

It's certainly unsettling. Like any new tool, if it gets into the wrong hands, it can be used for ill purposes. If you can start profiling people based on their appearance, then identifying them and doing horrible things to them, that's really bad.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

Now, I'm voting 'yes' because fundamentally, this is a question of fairness.feedback

Bill Shorten

I'm sorry that the Parliament has not already resolved this matter. I'm sorry for all of the hurtful and stupid things which have been said and are going to be said until we win marriage equality.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

The threat to marriage is not gay couples, it is a lack of loving commitment. Whether it is found in the form of neglect, indifference, cruelty or adultery.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

It's a very difficult question and one I can't answer. I don't know. But I think life is so important that even if the creation of it has taken place in difficult circumstances, that life should not be removed. Similarly, it's very difficult for families to bring up disabled children and one of the tragedies of abortion is that a disabled child who is as full a person as an able child is aborted routinely. And doesn't that lessen society's view of people with disabilities? And isn't it a great sadness?feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

I've never been invited to a gay wedding before, but I can't see why I'd decline. It's not for me to enforce my morals on others. If someone asked me to a drugs rave I'd refuse because it's illegal. The Catholic Church's teachings are authoritative. There is a moral absolute on abortion – that it is wrong. To take a life after a rape is not the answer. Life begins at the point of conception.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

One can only feel compassion for a woman in these situations – which, of course are rare – but it's hard to see how taking a child's life makes them better.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

But gay weddings are legal. I wouldn't get on my moral high horse. If I went, I hope I'd enjoy it.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

No, these are free vote matters as the Prime Minister said. I'm not trying to establish a theocracy [a government led by divine guidance]. These are my beliefs, but before I was born the legislation on abortion was settled. It's not going to be unsettled by me now.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

Rape is a great evil and a terrible crime, but that's not made better by then aborting the unborn child.feedback

Michal Kosinski

Given that companies and governments are increasingly using computer vision algorithms to detect people's intimate traits, our findings expose a threat to the privacy and safety of gay men and women.feedback

Louise Melling - American Civil Liberties Union

Even in an administration that has already made its hostility toward the gay community clear, I find this nothing short of shocking.feedback

Michal Kosinski

I hope that someone will go and fail to replicate this study … I would be the happiest person in the world if I was wrong.feedback

Michal Kosinski

It's a great argument against all of those religious groups and other demagogues who say, Why don't you just change or just conform?' You can't stop, because you're born this way.feedback

Paul Pfleiderer

Publication of research findings in academic journals allows the interpretation of those findings and the research methodologies used to obtain them to be scrutinized by academics in the field and are appropriately a matter for discussion and debate.feedback

Michal Kosinski

One of my obligations as a scientist is that if I know something that can potentially protect people from falling prey to such risks, I should publish it. Rejecting the results because you don't agree with them on an ideological level … you might be harming the very people that you care about.feedback

Michal Kosinski

There is a kind of moral question here. Should we publish it and make people upset and even potentially give some bad guys some ideas, or just not publish it and warn people?feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

Life is sacrosanct and begins at the point of conception. I am a Catholic and I take the teachings of the Catholic Church seriously. Marriage is a sacrament and the decision of what is a sacrament lies with the Church not with Parliament.feedback

Brian Brackeen

AI can tell you anything about anyone with enough data. The question is as a society, do we want to know?feedback

Owen Jones

Giving a TV platform to a ‘gay cure’ quack highlights a trend. The idea that free speech guarantees the right to incite hatred of minorities must be resisted. So-called “gay cure therapy” isn’t medicine, science, or indeed therapy: it’s abuse. Medical professionals regard the practice, which sees homosexuality as a fixable “condition”, as scientifically discredited, unethical and harmful. When my first boyfriend came out, aged 15, his parents drove him to a pseudo-scientist to be cured of his homosexuality: consider this against a context of being bullied at school for being gay. Today, he is recovering from crystal meth addiction.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

I'm completely opposed to abortion. With same-sex marriage, that is something that people are doing for themselves, with abortion it's something that's done to someone else. Yes, I'm afraid so. Life is sacrosanct and begins at the point of conception.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

I'm a Catholic; I take the teaching of the Catholic Church seriously. Marriage is a sacrament and the view of what marriage is is taken by the Church, not Parliament. I am completely opposed to abortion; life begins at the point of conception. With same-sex marriage, that is something that people are doing for themselves. With abortion, that is what people are doing to the unborn child.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

You are significantly overstating it. This is all good silly season stuff, it was fun in August when there wasn't much news about. I fully support Mrs May, I want her to remain leader of the Tory party, there isn't a leadership election and if there were I would not be a candidate. The circumstances in which someone in my position would become leader of the party would not exist.feedback

Jacob Rees-Mogg

I am a backbench MP, in the history of the Prime Ministership [the job] has never gone to a backbench MP. The circumstances in which someone in my position would become leader of the party would not exist.feedback

Taryn Manning - Orange

I'm not gay, meaning I love men. I love gay people. I've experimented. It's good. I just prefer men.feedback

Martina Navratilova

I was at a club with some friends, a gay bar in Paris. We're sitting here, we're dancing and then we sit down and then there's this gorgeous woman standing at the bar and she's like … looking at me.feedback

Abraham Lincoln

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.feedback

Justin Trudeau

In Canada and around the world, we must continue to fight against homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia, and to defend gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation rights. We deplore the recent, reprehensible reports of violations of the human rights of gay and bisexual men in Chechnya. We call for the protection of all people in Chechnya whose sexual orientation makes them a target for persecution. Human rights have no borders.feedback

Robert McChesney

They are overwhelming Washington with money and lobbyists on both sides of the aisle. The Silicon Valley billionaires and CEOs are libertarian, low-tax deregulation buddies of the Koch brothers when it comes to talking to Republicans, and dope-smoking, gay rights activist hipsters when they mix with the Democrats.feedback

Elijah Daniel - YouTube

I was looking for a town willing to make me mayor. They'll do it in Hell for $100, so I caught a redeye to Michigan and got sworn in. I am establishing new vetting measures to keep radical heterosexuals out of our town. We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our town the very heterosexual threats we are fighting against. The straights coming into our town procreating, having more straight children to take our rightfully gay jobs. We only want to admit those into our town who will support our town and love deeply our people.feedback

Kezia Dugdale

I have a female partner. I don't talk about it much because I don't feel I need to.feedback

Cardinal Robert Sarah

It’s possible to stay faithful to the church’s teachings without turning away millions.feedback

Henry Amador-Batten

I'm a 52-year-old man who has never had to fight because I'm gay. I've never been accused of anything, never been fired from a job, or lost a home. You hear all these stories, but I'd never experienced any of that.feedback

Henry Amador-Batten

I was nearly always targeted by security both in the U.S. and in the countries I was entering. I'm assuming, that a well-dressed Hispanic man flying out of Miami was easily suspected of being in the drug business. I missed flights, had luggage basically torn apart. I had tubes of toothpaste squeezed out and even hems on my jacket and pants ripped open.feedback

Skye Jethani

It's difficult to imagine what the authors of the statement hoped to accomplish given the cultural climate and social media realities. If their goal was to … open minds to biblical teaching, they miscalculated spectacularly.feedback

Wendy Horger Alsup

Trump has exacerbated real issues of immorality and injustice concerning immigration, sexual assault and white supremacy – Scripture isn't gray about these issues.feedback
