BERLIN (AP) – Germany’s representative on the European Union’s executive is facing criticism for appearing to make a derogatory reference to Chinese people and mock same-sex marriage.

Guenther Oettinger, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative party, referred to “slanty eyes” in a speech that surfaced on YouTube over the weekend. He also said “the German agenda doesn’t in any way do justice to my expectations of German responsibility,” listing alongside actual initiatives “obligatory same-sex marriage.”

LGBT State Rep. David Richardson replies to John Stemberger’s fundraising fear-mongering gracefully

DavidRichardsonThanks to our friends at FloridaPolitics.com, we can stick a cup up against the virtual door and hear how a true political hero – in this case, State Rep. David Richardson, D-Miami, who happens to be gay – responds to dishonored Boy Scout (or whatever you want to call him: hate group leader, generally terrible person) John Stemberger of the Florida Family Policy Council and Florida Family Action. Stemberger issued a backhanded compliment to Richardson a few days ago via FloridaPolitics.com. To wit:

Dear Rep. Richardson:

Since your election to the Florida House of Representatives in 2012 until now, I have always known your reputation as a legislator to be one of nothing but respect for the dignity of the institution, for the legislative process and for your fellow colleagues. Even those who firmly disagree with you on matters of public policy speak highly of you, of your talents as a legislator and the unique perspective you bring to the process.

However, after the tragic and despicable acts of evil which took place right down the street from my offices in Orlando June 12, I was both shocked to learn of your repeated statements accusing your fellow legislators of creating an environment that gives rise to such horrible violence when they speak out against any LGBT bills as bad public policy in the Legislature.
