Today on the Signorile Show

The hypocrites rage on: Antigay pastor Tom Brock -- who was revealed to be in a conversion therapy group himself -- is now is back at work, admitting to same-sex attraction but saying he's a "virgin" to gay sex.

We took lots of calls yesterday regarding attempts to stop the mosque at Ground Zero from being built. The prominent Jewish group, Anti-Defamation League, now under criticism for coming out against the project, has offered further defense of its alignment with bigots (and with Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and the GOP mob), while the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission has given the ok to the project. We'll go into it more and take many more calls we're sure.

Republicans are actually talking about repealing the 14th Amendment to keep the children of immigrants from becoming citizens, distorting what Congress intended when the amendment was passed. Time for a history lesson!

Guests / 3:30pm EST - Last week, we talked about whether or not people in the LGBT community should be boycotting Target, and now Best Buy, for their giving money to anti-gay political candidates. Joe Mirabella, a contributor with the Bilerico Project, thinks that the boycott, while well intended, won't work. David Reid, activist and guest blogger on LGBT POV, says there should be direct action against anything standing in the way of LGBT rights, including boycotts. They'll face off on the show in a debate on the issue this afternoon.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - A major, and exhaustive report was released yesterday on the loss of Prop 8 in California. The report shows why we lost during that election and what we can learn from it. Joining us to discuss the report, David Fleischer, author of The Prop 8 Report.

Sharon Angle believes the press should only ask her the questions she wants to answer.

And ABC's "Modern Family" is promising a wedding, and maybe even a kiss -- someday -- for its gay couple. But you'll get Nathan Lane sooner. We'll take your calls on the lack of PDAs and whether it bothers you or you see it as realistic.
