Filed under: Legal Matters

An Italian court has once again found Amanda Knox guilty of killing her roommate Meredith Kercher. The verdict, issued by two judges and six jurors, came after several hours of deliberations.

Knox, who already served 4 years in an Italian prison between 2007 and 2011 before an appeals court threw out her previous conviction, is now being sentenced AGAIN!

This time to 28 years!

Amanda has been back in her hometown of Seattle though ever since she was released by authorities three years ago. But will she soon be brought back to Italy to be locked up a second time?

Not yet.

Just as before, when her original case was retried, the new guilty verdict will go before the Italian Supreme Court. But experts believe that with this second conviction, the high court will uphold the sentence given to Knox!

Italy would then have to fight for extradition of Knox and bring her back to Italy to serve her sentence.

But Amanda

India Reinstates Its Nationwide Ban On Homosexuality! Boo!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

india supreme court ban homosexuality lgbt protests

Oh no!

In a HUGE setback for equality, India's Supreme Court ruled today to reinstate a law making homosexual sex a prisonworthy offense!

This won't just put them on the wrong side of history; it puts them IN history! Section 377 of the Indian penal code was written over 150 years ago when India was still a British colony!

The decision to bring back the law was a shock to the community. Arvind Narayan of the Alternative Law Forum said:

It looks like Raven-Symone is finally setting the record straight! Which is to say, she isn't!

The Cosby Show star became the most recent star to open up about their sexuality in a somewhat roundabout, vague-ish way, apparently celebrating the Supreme Court's same sex marriage decision. She tweeted:

Video Believed To Be Of The United States' First Same-Sex Marriage Is Revealed!

first gay marriages 072411 04

Even though Minnesota will become the 12th state in the nation to legalize same sex marriage later this week, the state and the nation owe a great deal to a marriage that happened 42 years ago towards furthering the cause of marriage equality.

In 1971, Jack Baker and Michael McConnell were wed in Minneapolis in the first recorded, in more ways than one, same sex marriage ceremony.

The couple caused a controversy back then as the video of their marriage landed on WCCO's broadcast two years after, and later their marriage was declared illegal by Minnesota's Supreme Court. However, even though their married status was nullified, the couple back then predicted that equality would eventually happen.

And as of midnight on Wednesday, they'll be proven right.

In a fitting development, Jack and Michael aren't going to get married this week, because, in their words, they already are.

What an example of the perseverance of love and the progress we've made as a country! Congrats to Minnesota, and to Jack and Michael!

Ch-ch-check out the inspiration video of the United States first documented same sex marriage…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Republicans Republican't always have it their way! Especially if the Supreme Court has already ruled otherwise!

House leaders from the Republican party announced in a court filing today that it will not continue to try defending statutes that are similar to those in the recently struck down DOMA, which ban federal recognition of same-sex marriages.

Here's an excerpt of what they wrote:
