An Atlanta gay man who sued the state after his requests for three separate gay-themed vanity license plates were denied settled his lawsuit on Wednesday.
James Cyrus Gilbert, who goes by Cyrus, filed a federal lawsuit in January against Robert G. Mikell, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Driver Services, after his requests for GAYPWR, GAYGUY and 4GAYLIB license plates were denied. He was told each of them were “unavailable,” said his attorney, Cynthia Counts.
Several churches in Georgia are busily kicking out Boy Scouts after the national organization said it would allow gay boys into its ranks (but still keep out those pesky adults who were at one time gay youth themselves.).
And Georgia, while it now has to accept GAYPWR, is getting some downright dismaying reactions to the pastors of these churches who are not doing what Jesus would do and turning away these young men because, well, being gay is a sin, according to their narrow minds.
