Is Noah's Arc returning to LOGO for a third season?

“All possibilities are open at this point,” says Marc Leonard, Senior Vice President of Multiplatform Programming at MTV Networks / Logo. “Contrary to popular belief, Noah was never ‘canceled’ — it's sometimes expressed in those terms by the media, but I'm not sure why since we've never said that was the case. We made the decision to produce a film before deciding on a third season. Anyway, right now we're considering various possibilities, including another season and/or another movie.”

Jon Stewart had Mike Huckabee on The Daily Show last night and the second half of the appearance focused on marriage equality.

Argued Stewart: "Religion is far more of a choice than homosexuality. We protection religion - and talk about a lifestyle choice - that is absolutely a choice. Gay people don't choose to be gay. At what point did you choose not to be gay? ... I think it's a travesty that people have forced someone who is gay to have to make their case."

Newseek:The Religious Case For Gay Marriage

Opponents of gay marriage often cite Scripture. But what the Bible teaches about love argues for the other side.

Am I the only person who hasn't read this article yet? One thing is for sure many evangelical Christians have and they're not happy. What else is new?

Commission Says New Jersey Should Allow Same-Sex Marriages

The New Jersey Civil Union Commission releases its much-anticipated and long-awaited report. The commission finds the Garden State's civil union law "fails" to adequately protect gay and lesbian couples and the state should waste no time passing a marriage equality bill. The Star-Ledger:

The final report of the New Jersey Civil Union Review Commission says it gathered "overwhelming evidence" that the civil union law not only fails to provide the same protections as marriage, it also has created economic, medical and emotional hardships for gay couples.

Pam Spaulding & Rachel Maddow Go Head-To-Head on Michael Signorile Show

An excerpt from Pam's post that started the controversy:

I'm starting to think that Rachel Maddow has an issue or professional discomfort with taking on publicly anti-gay figures on her show. It's an oddity, given 1) she's out and has a high-profile; and 2) her fellow MSNBC host, Keith Olbermann, has been extremely forceful as an ally on the issue by comparison. She's spoken at length about the debacle of Prop 8, so one would assume that if given the opportunity, Maddow would address the issue with well-known homophobes.

The reticence to take on agents of intolerance surfaced in a recent interview with former GOP clown car occupant, rapist/murderer-releasing Baptist minister-without-a-theology-degree Mike Huckabee.

Thanks for posting that Jon Stewart video...I think it's something everyone should see, especially all gay people. Throughout the entire segment, Stewart articulated our struggle more eloquently than we often do, and it was very inspiring to see a straight ally make such a passionate case for our equality.

I hope Noah's Arc comes back for a third (fourth, fifth, sixth)season. I'm just wondering why wasn't Doug Spearman in the picture. He was the first one to come out (I think). Plus, I always liked his character - he was so professorial and somewhat older (like me).

I hope Noah comes back. There is hardly anything on Logo. I hope a deal can be worked out. Movies are good but they only give u a short fix. On Jon Stewart...Love it!

Regarding Noah's Arc: It's great to watch LOGO about-face the fact that they took Noah's Arc off the schedule because they couldn't verfiy its ratings. I'm glad the film proved that there's an audience and I'm glad that they're considering a third season despite the fact that aren't being honest about their previous decisions.
