By David Estlund, June 25, 2014, 9:45am, The Gay Place

Methodists get better, #bornperfect hasn't backfired yet, and Ron Johnson gives us ballsy ethics, as your AggreGAYtor finds a new meat delivery system.

The Good

The Texas UMC pastor who was defrocked for marrying his son (to his son’s husband) has been re-frocked.

There’s a new #BornPerfect campaign to push back against anti-gay quack ‘conversion’ therapy. Your humble AggreGAYtor thinks “perfect” dost oversell the point.

Vice President Joe Biden says protecting LGBTQ citizens is more important than protecting the right to discriminate.

HRC is hosting a Freedom Summer Conference with a focus on LGBT African-American equality. HRC-Austin chimes in with the Texas angle.

Republican senator Ron Johnson (second best name for a public servant ever) pledges to move in the voters’ interests when it comes to marriage rights.

According to a new survey, gay men consider themselves more competent at assembling flat pack furniture, amongst other things.

Every president since Eisenhower (except Nixon of course) has had close gay associates.

The Bad

A Ugandan court has ruled in favor of the nation’s ‘gay propaganda’ law.

The Fugly

Alright Texas homophobes, off to the concentration camps for you.

R. Kelly seems to be bridling at his son’s coming out. Hopefully he’ll take the Cher route eventually.
