She looks so stupid that she would not/could not recognize "gay" if it was in bed with her. 

I have used this quote before, but I believe it's true: "Anger/rage is fear in disguise."  WHAT did these two dimwits have to be afraid of? 

For that matter what do DOMA supporters and TP members have to be afraid of?  I'll never understand certain types of people.

Jessica Dutro sentenced for the murder of her 4 year old son who she thought acted gay.

 

dailymail.com although also on lots of sites.

 

It looks like this young woman is mentally ill or on drugs.  She assaulted all 3 of her children, but seems to have given the worst to Zacchary.

Neither the mom nor her boyfriend look like they are playing with a full deck.  I was trying to decide if they have the appearance of people born with fetal alcohol syndrome, especially the boyfriend.  Maybe my imagination.

 

Regardless, I don't think she should ever be allowed to have, or be near, children again.

David Pakman interviews one of the most evil influences on society today.  I don't know why I torture myself with this stuff....

  • it has been my experience through living in North and South Sudan, Egypt, Morocco and Nigeria that most African Dictators remain in power by initiating hatred of one group or another which keeps the people busy and thus keeping the spotlight off of their corruption.  To have a group of so called Missionary's come on the scene is a boon to these power hungry Dictators.  Of course they can think up enough on their own going all the way back to the Mau-Mau.  In some areas they search out so called Witches and the way to get rid of anyone who is decided to be a Witch is to throw them alive into a fire. Lovely people.
  • The people stirring this crap up about Gay people are American Evangelist loonie clubs who profess to be such wonderful devoted Christians.  By having the word Christian associated with these hate groups makes them fireproof as far as the US Government is concerned.  The International House Of Prayer in Kansas City "IHOP" is one of the main offenders but of course as they profess to be such good Christians it would be more likely to make pigs fly than to get anyone in our government to initiate any action to curtail their offensive action in Africa.
  • I have no idea of where to start.  Throwing petitions to our politicians would be about as useful as throwing pebbles in the ocean.  We think we have come so far since the middle ages but we have truly hardly moved, there is a good reason that Africa was called "The Dark Continent" I hate the situation there but there just seems no way to rain it in.

Thinking more about what tangible thing can be done to help African LGBT people.

I think most congresspeople will either ignore a letter (conservatives) or might be inspired to shine light on the topic (Liberals).  So maybe writing letters, or inspiring others to do so, to liberal politicians.  Such as those in my state, WA.

Here is y search on the White House petition website.  I don't see anything on Africa related to LGBT people.    Also, there is only one topic on LGBT people, which relates to ENDA.  There is no mention of this in immigration topics.

So I think there is no White House petition regarding the plight of LGBT people in either SubSaharan Africa or Muslim countries.

I think it would be good to start a White House petition. Some of the petitions are by crack pots, and some are serious.   I will ponder this a bit.  Any thoughts or comments?

What can an ordinary person do to help people trapped in these terrible places? I have been asking myself this because we have at least one LGBT member on Nexus who lives in Uganda, but I ask myself this anyway.

We support our president in his criticism of these terrible regimes. I'm glad for that.

We can spread the word to anyone who is willing to listen. I do that myself when I have opportunity.

We can continue to criticize and expose the christian colonialists who proselytize antigay hate.

We can support our politicians in creation of asylum.

How could we do that? Is there a white house petition process we could use? I think that might be a good idea....

Any thoughts about tangible ways to support LGBT people in Africa and Muslim countries?

Abuse from the Egyptian government as well. 

Egypt Court Sentences Four Gays to Prison

A court in Egypt sentenced four men to up to eight years in prison on Monday for practicing homosexuality, a judicial official said.

Prosecutors had accused the men of holding "deviant parties" and dressing in women's clothes. Three were sentenced to eight years and the fourth to three years in prison.

Prosecutors have used a law banning "debauchery" to try homosexuals in the past.

Those accused of homosexuality are often forced to undergo medical tests to establish they are "habitual" gays, a practice rights groups have decried as abusive.

Homosexuality is not tolerated across the Middle East and much of Africa.

Interesting take on the right of anyone to marry:

I mean, why can't a supposed christian.....

Chrissie I wonder that about some, but Lively is so vile, so obsessed, so full of hate and lies, I think his psychopathology must go deeper. Maybe he was sexually abused. Pure speculation on my part of course. Or maybe horribly bullied. Regardless, that is no excuse to instigate vilification, murder, scapegoating, discrimination, ruined lives. I've know a couple of Cambodians who went through more than Lively could have in one lifetime, and a Bosnian who lost family in the war there. A once knew a man who was in a Germsn concentration camp. They may have never gotten over it, but they did move on, and were not hate filled animals. And I saw some abuse myself. I suppose I got over it too, except the rare moments. but I can forgive too. Why can a supposed christian like Lively?
