Today on the Signorile Show

Last week there was quite a bit of discussion on the blogs about a group of Christians who showed up at Chicago Pride "apologizing." It turned out though to be Andrew Marin," whose group, The Marin Foundation, Mike had exposed in an interview on the show and in an Advocate article back 2006 as a group all about building up Marin -- and very much still adhering to the "homosexuality is a sin" line. We'll go further into Marin's deceptive agenda, which is less about building a "bridge" between gays and evangelicals and more about having youth pastors intervene before gays "come out" -- in what seems like an attempt to stop them from being gay. In hour 3 (4 ET0 we'll play clips from a seminar he'd given to youth pastors, which we think you'll agree alarmingly sounds antigay, and we'll take your calls and thoughts.

Over the weekend on the Sunday shows, Republican's had given their reaction to RNC Chairman Michael Steele's comments regarding Afghanistan being a "war of Obama's choosing." Is Steele on his way out?

Arizona's new immigration law, also know as the Breathing While Brown law, is still gaining steam. Recently, Rick Sanchez played excerpts of a training video which is teaching Arizona law officials how to enforce this new law.
