bullet John C. Okeefe has: "... come to the conclusion that God Hates Sodomites." This web site attempts to reveal the real perversion of the city of Sodom, that God hates.This perversion has nothing to do with same-gender sexual behavior, or of homosexual orientation. It has everything to do with pride and inhospitality towards the oppressed." See: http://johncokeefe.com/
 
bullet GodLovesFags.com is a helpful source of current news. See: http://godlovesfags.com The webmaster registered the URL "out of disgust for Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church's website" at www.godhatesfags.com

On Being is a radio program on National Pubic Radio. A 53 minute episode discusses: "Gay Marriage: Broken or Blessed? Two Evangelical Views." See: http://www.onbeing.org/

Since the program was originally aired during 2004-MAY, there have been many developments in same-sex marriage. By 2016, same-sex couples are able to marry anywhere in the U.S. except for American Samoa and some Native American jurisdictions. Over 60% of U.S. adults now favor SSM. Support for SSM is increasing, and opposition is decreasing by 1 to 2 percentage points a year.

Total Mortgage Services® publishes "The Total Guide: Home Buying for Same Sex Couples" The guide's introduction states:

"Purchasing a home is a major undertaking for any couple, but same-sex couples must be especially diligent to make sure their investment and their interests are protected.  This is due in part to inconsistent marriage laws in America and because of varying laws handling the disposition of a property with multiple owners.  Purchasing a home with your partner is an exciting time in both of your lives, but it is absolutely imperative that you plan ahead so that you can avoid potentially serious financial and emotional stress in the future."
