Jane Lynch’s ex-wife seeks spousal support despite the actress’ attempt to avoid payments

Daily Mail: Though Jane Lynch’s split from estranged wife Lara Embry has gone relatively smoothly, not all the loose ends have been secured: Lara still wants spousal support.

The Glee star announced in July she was legally ending her three-year-marriage to the clinical psychologist, whom she  split from in February.

Lara has now filed documents in Los Angeles Superior Court asking for her attorney fees to be paid by Jane, as well as spousal support – which Jane doesn’t seem to want to give.

The 53-year-old actress previously sought to terminate the court’s jurisdiction to award spousal support to her ex-wife, according to People.

Jane was also the one to file the divorce documents on July 12, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the  split.

But the pair have thus far acted rational about the ordeal, and Jane recently insisted their divorce was ‘not a horrible’ thing. ‘It’s not dramatic. It’s not a horrible thing. It’s something that we’re dealing with,’ Jane told Larry King Live in July.  ‘It’s two people who just decided it’s better to go apart than stay together.’

The former couple are determined to maintain  an amicable relationship for Lara’s daughter, Haden. ‘All’s good. We have a little girl – she has a little girl who’s very dear to me,’ Jane added. ‘She’s 10, and she’s doing  great.

‘We have to remain adults, which we have. We  keep everybody’s – especially Haden’s – good in our mind.’

The pair had got engaged in 2010 and married on Memorial Day the same year in an intimate ceremony in Sunderland,  Massachusetts.

Betty Crocker goes Sodom

betty-crockerGeneral Mills, Inc., founded in 1856, is an American Fortune 500 corporation, headquartered in Golden Valley, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. GM’s food products  include baking mixes, breakfast cereals, yogurt, refrigerated dough, soup, pizza, snack foods, ice cream, soy products, vegetables, and flour.

The corporate giant, with revenue of $14.880 billion in 2011, owns more than 100 well-known U.S. food brands, such as Yoplait, Pillsbury, Green Giant, Häagen-Dazs, Betty Crocker, Cheerios, Trix, and Lucky Charms.

Another way to look at General Mills is as a many-headed hydra.

hydraA year ago, General Mills decided to go whole hog for homosexual marriage. As part of its corporate campaign in support of “gay pride,” the hydra corporation’s Kraft Foods posted a pic of a rainbow-colored Oreo cookie on the Oreo fan page on Facebook, along with the caption, “Proudly Support Love.”

gay OreoIn early July of this year, General Mills announced that Lucky Charms – with little rainbow marshmallows – will be the face for a new gay pride campaign, called #LuckyToBe.

Now GM has unleashed one of America’s most beloved icons, Betty Crocker, to promote homosexual marriage.

Dave Tombers reports for WND, Aug. 4, 2013, that at midnight last Thursday, the State of Minnesota legalized homosexual marriage. So Betty Crocker went all out and treated homosexual couples getting married to free wedding cakes.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that General Mills and the Edina, Minn., bakery Queen of Cakes donated cakes to the first three couples to marry at Minneapolis City Hall the moment same-sex marriage became legal.

In a blog post titled “Betty Crocker Toasts Marriage Equality With Wedding Cake Tasting,” the homosexual advocacy organization GLAAD said that three homosexual couples visited the Betty Crocker kitchens in Golden Valley, Minn., to sample wedding cakes on Monday, and that “Betty Crocker is performing this donation as a part of ‘The Families Project’. The company states that it wanted ‘to celebrate with these families and mark this moment in the state’s history’.”

The General Mills website “The Family Project” proclaims: “Families are changing a lot. But they’ve still got one thing in common – the love that makes a home. At Betty Crocker, we believe that a family is a family, no matter how it’s arranged. Marriage & Family have changed more in the last 35 years than in the last 350.”

The maker of Cheerios and Lucky Charms then reminds readers that “less than half of all households in the U.S. include a husband and wife,” but “the number of same-sex couples living together has increased by 800 percent since 2000. [...] And, to many of us, it seems like a homemaker can only be part of a certain kind of family. But these days, a homemaker is anyone who makes a home.” And although 71% of Americans say they have “old-fashioned values about marriage and family,” the GM website quickly points out that “we” don’t really want to be “old-fashioned,” but simply want to be “together.”

That’s when the company says there’s a “new normal” when it comes to families, a “new normal” that “makes us happy,” because the “love that exists between family members is a lot more important than how they’re arranged.”

The brand manager for Betty Crocker, Laura Forero, told Minnesota Public Radio that the image of “Betty” is constantly evolving, but diversity and inclusion are in the brand’s DNA: “Celebrating these three families today, seemed very appropriate as Betty celebrates all families.”

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has a “Dump General Mills” campaign, which seeks to educate the American consumer about how the profit on food sales is spent by the company.

NOM’s petition to “Dump General Mills,” signed by tens of thousands of Americans, states:

I never thought that by eating Cheerios for breakfast I would be supporting gay marriage. Your decision to pander to same-sex marriage activists has forced me to choose between your food products and my conscience. As long as food is produced by other companies my conscience is going to win out over the desire for another bowl of Lucky Charms. Until you stop supporting this radical social agenda I must, in good conscience, look for substitutes that I can purchase instead of the following brands. – See more at: http://www.dumpgeneralmills.com/?REF=EB120625NANT#sthash.5bSEIVu1.dpuf

Ken Powell2General Mills’ CEO Ken Powell

General Mills’ chairman and CEO is Kendall J. Powell, 59. Powell joined General Mills in 1979; was named president of the General Mills Big G cereal division in 1997; was elected president and chief operating officer of General Mills in 2006; and elected chief executive officer in September 2007 and chairman in May 2008.

In September 2012, at General Mills’ meeting with its shareholders, a few shareholders took issue with the food company’s decision to advocate against the Minnesota’s proposed constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage. During the question-and-answer session at the end of the meeting, one woman who identified herself as a shareholder from Prior Lake said she was saddened by General Mills’ decision to take a stance on the gay marriage amendment. She said the company’s mission should be focused on selling food, not on political issues. Powell defended General Mills’ stance, which was posted on the company’s blog in June.

Wikipedia‘s brief profile on Powell says nothing about his personal life — whether he has a wife and/or children.

College students call traditional marriage supporters “hideous,” “disgusting,” and flat-world morons

Last Wednesday morning, as America awaited the Supreme Court’s decision on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a group of “liberal” Leftwing college students showed just how “tolerant” and respectful of “diversity” they are.

Katherine Timpf reports for Campus Reform, June 26, 2013, that the pro-homosexual marriage students liberally spewed their intolerance and hatred for supporters of traditional marriage.

This female student (see below) calls us “hideous” and “disgusting” and says that she “feel[s] nothing for them at all. I don’t feel bad that they are upset.”

DOMA hideous

Another female student (below) calls supporters of traditional marriage “a meeting of the flat world society” who should get with the times because “It’s 2013.”

DOMA flat world society

Then there’s this self-satisfied student (below, in red t-shirt) who insists homosexual marriage is all about “love,” whereas supporters of traditional marriage are just mean nasty “haters.” I can’t figure out what gender it is. Whether it is a he or a she, he-she can lose some fat!

DOMA haters

College education is such a mind-broadening experience! [Snark]

If these college students are the future of America, we’re even more doomed than we already are.  :(

Expedia pushing homosexual marriage

I saw this ad on tv last night. I thought my show had been interrupted with another show as this “airing” was lasting a long time (3 minutes and 20 seconds to be exact). Turns out Expedia was running an ad pushing homosexual marriage.

Every trip is unique. On this trip, Artie Goldstein travels across the country to attend his daughter’s same-sex homosexual wedding, a journey that will test him, challenge him, and ultimately change him in unexpected ways.

“You come to terms with it and you say, this is the very natural order of things in your life, and it’s suppose to be this way.”

I’ve never used Expedia in my life. Needless to say, I won’t start any time soon.

Homosexual marriage – “get over it”

indoctrination

Fourth Grader’s Pro-Gay Homosexual Marriage Essay Goes Viral

GMA: What is one fourth grader’s argument for marriage equality redefining marriage?  Essentially, “Get over it.”

When the fourth grader’s teacher posted a photo of the essay on Reddit, a social news site where registered users can post content, Wednesday, it quickly took off.

“One of my fourth grade students chose gay homosexual marriage as his topic for a persuasive essay,” the teacher, Reddit user rafa3l2, wrote. “This is the result.  More sense than some adults.”

The  student wrote:

“Why gay homosexual people should be able to get married is you can’t stop two adult’s from getting married because there grown and it doesn’t matter if it creeps you out just get over it.  And you should be happy for them because it’s a big moment in their life.  When I went to my grandparents wedding it was the happies moment.”

“I am not sharing this because of how perfect the sentences are, but because of how clear his thought process is on this specific issue,” the teacher wrote on Reddit. “It isn’t as simple as pointing out mistakes and spelling errors.”

While the fourth grade writer’s essay might not change any laws,  GLAAD, an organization that supports equality for  lesbian, gay homosexual, bisexual and transgender people, fully endorses the student’s efforts.

This fourth grader is echoing what a majority of Americans of all ages now feel, and perfectly represents the respect for diversity that this student’s generation is learning,” Wilson Cruz, a GLAAD spokesperson, told ABCNews.com. “This student is absolutely correct in saying that marriage is a ‘big moment’ for a couple, and creates a sturdy foundation for the rest of their lives.

“Children are wiser than we often give them credit for.”

So two adults can get married? That means a father and his adult daughter can get married? Not a very clear thought process in my opinion.

But that doesn’t matter - the agenda is all that matters. Remember one of the Communist goals for America:

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

Oregon baker under investigation for refusing homosexual couple

Sticking to his beliefs

Sticking to his beliefs

Did Ore. baker break the law when he denied service to same-sex couple?

Komo News:  A Gresham baker is the subject of a state investigation after he refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex homosexual couple.

Did Sweet Cakes owner Aaron Klein violate the law when he told the couple that he couldn’t sell them a cake because “they were abominations to the Lord?”  That’s what Oregon Attorney General’s civil enforcement officers are looking into after one of the brides-to-be filed a complaint on Jan. 28.

The woman who filed the complaint said she had previously bought a cake from Sweet Cakes for her mother’s wedding. It was fine. But when her partner went back for their wedding cake on Jan. 17, the owner refused.

Klein on Friday denied making the harsh statement, but admitted to a KATU reporter on camera that he did deny her service. “I apologized for wasting their time and said we don’t do same-sex homosexual marriages,” he said. I “honestly did not mean to hurt anybody, didn’t mean to make anybody upset, (it’s) just something I believe in very strongly.”

But beliefs aren’t enough to cover him under state law. The Oregon Equality Act of 2007 prohibits discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity. The statute includes public accommodations, such as businesses.

Klein emphasized the importance of his religious beliefs, saying it outweighs his bottom line and the state law. “If I have to be to, I guess, be penalized for my beliefs, then I guess, well, that’ll be what it is,” he said.

The question now: whether his constitutional rights outweigh state statute.  “My First Amendment rights allow me to practice my religion as I see it,” Klein said.

We asked Portland attorney Paula Barran whether this case falls under the 2007 statute. She said it did, but added that she did not know how the owner’s religious beliefs would factor in.

“Statutes don’t get to overcome constitutional protections, so if somebody had a religious-based reason for wanting not to trade with somebody, I think you have a really interesting test case for whether or not a statute like this can apply,” Barran said.

There is no exception under the state’s anti-discrimination law for religious beliefs. Ultimately, the case would be up for a judge to decide.  The woman who filed the complaint declined to comment to KATU until she receives further legal advice.

Of course the comments on the article are calling this man a homophobic. Heaven forbid he have a right to his personal religious beliefs. Being that this is Oregon, there’s no doubt in my mind that the judge will side with the homosexual customer.

Making fun of traditional marriage?

Lesbians threaten to ‘steal your boyfriends’ in hilarious same-sex marriage  spoof

DailyMail: Among the historic Election Night wins  earlier this month were three states that voted in favor of gay  marriage. Maine, Maryland and Washington State joined six others that already approve same-sex unions.

But the women over at The Unsolicited Project  have a message for the 41 states that have not yet opened their arms to such  rights, in a hilarious parody that is sweeping the internet.

The video, a montage of stereotypical  lesbians, opens with one calling the recent vote ‘a great step forward for civil  rights. ‘However, that means there are still 41  states that oppose it.’

For them, the women issue a threat: ‘Whatever  – keep marriage between a man and a woman. And as a response, we will marry your  boyfriends.’

We would be the best wives ever,’ claims  another woman clad in a skull cap and a  Montreal Canadians jersey. ‘For starters,  we love sports. Every single sport.’ ‘While you’re dragging him to the  ballet or  making him sit through another episode of the bachelor, we  just scored NBA  playoff tickets – right behind the bench.’

A lesbian stretching her legs at the gym  claims: ‘He’ll never have to suffer through a five hour trip to the mall  again.’ ‘While you’re deciding between a slutty dress  and another slutty dress, we just bought the same three pairs of the same jeans  because they fit well.’

The group says that they could steal a  boyfriend while his unwitting girlfriend is at the nail salon. Go ahead, get your mani-pedi. We’ll  be at  your boyfriends playing Call of Duty, Skyrim, Halo. We own every  video game  console to date, and we can play all. night. long.’

If that’s not incentive enough, offer their  company and the company of other like-minded women, saying: ‘And hey, did you  know that lesbians know other lesbians?’ A blonde lesbian in a low-cut top and  clutching Nintendo Wii controllers says: ‘Sometimes we hang out, make out, and take our clothes off. Do you  your boyfriend will mind?

The woman also believe that longstanding argument starters like gawking at other women would be a thing of the  past. ‘What? Did he just stare at the waitress’ boobs? So were we.’

They go on: ‘Ladies, no offense, but you just  can’t  make your man as happy as we can. We will take him to the strip club  every year on his birthday – and even some of his un-birthdays, because  it’s a win-win.’ ‘We are like your boyfriend’s best friend – with boobs.’

The women then conclude: ‘So please, support  gay marriage, or we will marry your boyfriend.’  Another  adds: ‘Every. Last. One.’

This so-called “parody” is full of stereotypes. What makes you think all women take their husbands to the mall? What makes you think that all women don’t like sports? What makes you think all men want to go to a strip joint?

What an insult to married men and women who work hard at their marriages.

Arizona judge isn’t convinced the pregnant man is a man, delaying divorce

Arizona does not recognize gay marriage, which is what a judge considers the union of Thomas and Nancy Beatie, so the couple isn’t even sure they can get a divorce just yet.

NY Daily News: For some people, the difficult is simple and the simple is difficult. The “pregnant man” now faces challenges in getting a divorce, just as he she had in getting married. At least, getting pregnant came easily for him her.

An Arizona judge isn’t convinced he can divorce the pregnant man Thomas Beatie from his her wife because he doesn’t consider the transgender man, well, a man. Since Arizona doesn’t recognize gay marriage, the judge argues that he doesn’t have the authority to divorce a couple that – in his estimation – was never married in the first place, reports TMZ.

Beatie underwent a country and state-recognized sex change operation in 1998 but retained his her female reproductive organs. Beatie’s U.S. passport and Hawaii birth certificate were altered to identify Beatie as man. In 2003, he she and Nancy wed as man and woman. But because Beatie had a vagina at the time of their marriage and has given birth to three children, the judge isn’t entirely convinced by the paperwork.

The pregnant man is seeking a divorce from his her wife Nancy because she allegedly abused him while inebriated. Beatie said, “She hit me in the crotch.”

The judge is still deliberating as to whether he has the authority to grant the divorce.

Dude, if you have a vagina you are a woman. Just imagine the mess these “transgender” divorces are going to cause in a courtroom.

Boston Mayor wants to ban Chick-fil-A

Support Chick-fil-A

Mayor Menino on Chick-fil-A: Stuff it

Vows to block eatery over anti-gay traditional marriage attitude

Boston Herald:  Mayor Thomas Menino is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from bringing its Southern-fried fast-food empire to Boston — possibly to a popular tourist spot just steps from the Freedom Trail — after the family-owned firm’s president suggested gay homosexual marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion,” Menino told the Herald yesterday.

“That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”

Chick-fil-A has been swept up in a growing national controversy over company president Dan Cathy’s remarks questioning gay homosexual marriage and lauding the traditional family.

Chick-fil-A did not respond to multiple requests for comment. But the company released a statement yesterday saying it has a history of applying “biblically-based principles” to managing its business, such as closing on Sundays, and it insisted it does not discriminate.

“The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect — regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender,” the statement read. “Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”

But that isn’t cutting the mustard with Menino. He said he plans to fire off a letter to the company’s Atlanta headquarters “telling them my feelings on the matter. If they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult — unless they open up their policies,” he warned.

In February, Northeastern University balked at Chick-fil-A’s plans for an on-campus eatery after students squawked about reports the chain’s charitable arm donated millions of dollars to anti-gay homosexual groups.  Undeterred, Chick-fil-A — which boasts 1,600 eateries, including two in the Bay State — has been scouting the Hub for new locations and is reportedly eyeing a lease at 1 Union St., across the street from City Hall, the Holocaust Memorial and historic Faneuil Hall.

“It doesn’t send the right message to the country,” Menino said. “We’re a leader when it comes to social justice and opportunities for all.”

Ah, social justice?  So that’s more important than how a private business donates their money?  Apparently that is more important than how a private business owner wants to live his life.  And heaven forbid one have a right to have a different opinion.

So Menino, when are you going champion social justice for those that support plural marriages, bestiality, and NAMBLA? Wouldn’t want to limit their opportunities now, would you?

Bwaney’s a Bride!

Romance is not dead even at age 72.

The Daily Mail reports, July 8, 2012, that in a private Saturday evening ceremony at the Boston Marriot hotel, openly gay 72-year-old U.S. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass) wed his “long-time” (FIVE years is “long time”!) partner James Ready, thereby becoming the first sitting congressman to enter into a homosexual marriage.

Frank, who is retiring after more than three decades in office, represents the 4th Congressional District in southeastern Massachusetts.

Frank’s bride is 30 years younger. Ready owns a small business doing custom awnings, carpentry, painting, welding and other general handyman services. He’s also a photographer. He and Frank met at a political fundraiser in Maine, and the two have been in a relationship since 2007.

The wedding ceremony was officiated by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, and attended by many of Frank’s colleagues on the Hill, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi; Congressman John F. Tierney, a Salem Democrat; Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, a Connecticut Democrat; and Congressman Al Green, a Texas Democrat.

And now, here’s a pic of the bride and bride!
