Arnold Schwarzenegger Blasts Indiana's Anti-Gay Law
3 April 2015 3:20 PM, PDT
Indiana's religious freedom law just got a very powerful new enemy: the "Governator" himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The former California Governor - an outspoken Republican - expressed his anger and disappointment over what he sees as his party's discriminatory agenda in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

Theater Review: Does Jim Parsons, as God, Knock 'Em Dead?
just nowFor all its celebration of personal liberty and countercultural fabulousness, Broadway is actually a fairly God-positive place. Producers are not, after all, in the business of alienating potential audiences with gratuitous sacrilege. The nuns in Sister Act are sassy, not schismatic; Tevye’s a hondler, not an apostate.
