Counseling student sues university for right to be a bigot - "A student at Augusta State University has sued the school because it has allegedly asked her to alter her Christian beliefs (i.e., not advocate gay conversion therapy) before allowing her to graduate from its counseling program." more here. I couldn't embed the video. She wants to be able to use her biblical beleifs as a school counselor.

Lovely news report - no mention at all of the effects of what it will mean when a LGBT student goes to their homophobic bigot counselor for help, or when a nontheist student goes to their bible-quoting counselor. I have such faith in news reports now!

I received the following email from Equal Rights Washington, pertaining to WA state election

"On August 17th, we have a tremendous opportunity to unseat intolerant Justices Jim Johnson and Richard Sanders, who, in 2006, wrote devastating opinions that upheld Washington state's Defense of Marriage Act. Today is the anniversary of the decision of Andersen v. King County, and their opinions from the case have created years of setbacks in the struggle to attain marriage equality....

...Equal Rights Washington is an early endorser of two candidates we feel will return the court to a fair and ethical majority, Stan Rumbaugh and Charlie Wiggins.


I edited for brevity. It's hard to know where candidates stand on a variety of issues, so I thought I would pass this information on.

James, isn't it the truth? Christians are very selective in their reading of their reference book and guide, "the bible". Many also pray in public, eat nonkosher foods, work on saturday, wear mixed fabrics, take the lord's name in vain, and other offences.

Actually, I don't think that either Yahweh or Jesus preached compassion for everyone. I could be wrong about that, but I think the main point of the bible is retribution.

Dale - I agree wholeheartedly. We need to open an "ex-straight" ministry. We need to spread the word. "Wake up America!"

Comment I posted at 365Gay.com re: the group that wants same sex people to be executed per Leviticus:

Wait a minute. Am I missing something? The noose sign people quote the Leviticus Cafeteria for the proposition that gays should be executed? Wasn't there some prophet who came along and saved whores from death by stoning? Didn't he preach compassion for everyone, and doesn't the Declaration of Independence state that all were created equal (language not qualified by exclusion of gays). These people are not just homophobic, they are lapsed Christians with an anti-American agenda.

@Dale, Great video. Do you really think there is hope for them?

"Repeal Of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Paves Way For Gay Sex Right On Battlefield, Opponents Fantasize" from america's greatest news source, theonion.com

"WASHINGTON—As Congress prepares to allow gay individuals to serve openly in the military, those against the proposed change voiced their concerns Monday, warning the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" could soon lead to strong, strapping American soldiers engaging in mind-blowing homosexual intercourse right on the battlefield."

This article is correct. When I was a recruit, fresh off the farm, shipped to boot camp at Fort Polk Louisiana, I learned about things that would have scared the animals big-time back on the back 40 acres. And I LIKED what I learned.

""The last thing I need after a 12-hour reconnaissance patrol is to know I'm hitting the showers with some guy who might be checking me out and who might, after seeing what I have to work with, find himself wondering if I too long for the firm yet tender embrace of another man," Army Cpl. Dale Montgomery said."

Excuse me, I have to go now. Read the rest of the article at the link to theonion.com

I posted this song because the Ted Haggard song has already been posted.
