As to that profoundly stupid woman who blathered on, she is a menace to society because good, decent, kind persons, such as myself would like to murder her in cold blood. I suppose I could settle for a vibrant tongue lashing; she will never stop her diseased thinking, nor will she value differences or recognize not all homo sapiens are created as she was. This is one time I wish there were a god and burning in an eternal fire. Surely she qualifies.

I am sure being patient and trying to educate people about LGBT is a noble cause, but if it is anything like family violence, it is a useless endeavor. A culture that holds values of seeing homosexuality as a sin, whatever that is, many think that way because they may have learned it from childhood, with heavy, emotional sermons and bible study lessons. Misinformation goes into the brain, supported by strong emotion, and one has the formula for concrete boxes around the brain.

In China it was believed footbinding  was a good thing for women and both men and women endoresed it and did what they could to make it happen. Their minds were bound.

Sex roles exist for the same reason; never mind an individual's native talent, sex determines options. Women will be the caregivers and men the providers. Both men and women suffered under such attitudes.

Race is another one that locks people into boxes from which they cannot escape.

Giving a woman control over her own body goes on the list of control over people, and for what reasons? 

So, homosexuality, family violence, footbinding, sex roles, race and women's sexuality are just a few of the issues facing an individual in a culture. 

I speak anecdotally now, but my experience is that I can not reform the church to help with family violence and I had to leave the church to find physical, mental and emotional safety.

Family was not able to recognize harm caused by brutal, thuggish behavior and I had to leave a husband and parents and family members in order to accomplish what I wanted to do, live in my own home unafraid.

I don't have homosexual or race issues with which to deal, but I assume people who do have these issues often find leaving family, religion, work, social structures that enable oppression and even death is necessary. I had it easy compared to what others have to tolerate, but the issue is, to me, don't tolerate brutes and thugs, whatever they wrap those behaviors into. Life is too short, and it is so much better to just shed off the foolish, uninformed, uncaring, and unloving people and build real community with mutual care.

if people want the rss changed I'm happy to do that.  I want it as inclusive of  L+G+B+T as possible.  Any suggestions other than pink pages?

In the battle between morality and faith, morality is winning

 

Via a tweet by Jamelle Bouie comes this piece from Rachel Held Evans that surprised even me.

 

When asked by The Barna Group what words or phrases best describe Christianity, the top response among Americans ages 16-29 was “antihomosexual.” For a staggering 91 percent of non-Christians, this was the first word that came to their mind when asked about the Christian faith. The same was true for 80 percent of young churchgoers. (The next most common negative images? : “judgmental,” “hypocritical,” and “too involved in politics.”)

 

What makes this all the more fascinating is that the Barna Group is a pro-Christian research firm. They exist to provide data with an eye towards growing and strengthening Christianity. These aren't a bunch of rowdy atheists saying, "So there." Neither are, I would add, Jamelle or Rachel. Both are Christians and both are deeply disturbed this information, and by the results: [continue]

SB, can you change the feed from topix.com (which is too spammy) to some other site? Perhaps Pink News or any other suggestion others may have.

Comment by A Former Member on May 11, 2012 at 10:00pm

No, I have a feeling she was the genuine article. I've listened to it five time already, I find it so funny. What I can't believe is that that guy behind her was the ONLY ONE cracking up. Everyone else was just so unflabberghasted.

 

I think the next date I go on I'm gonna try the line "P-E-N-I-S goes into anus," and see how he reacts.

Holy jesus, oh god, oh god! That lady is a riot!  I wonder if she was a plant.  Not as in, begonia, but a fake homophobe planted to make antigay people look looney tunes.  She did say one true thing - I do always curse after coupling.  And before.  And during.  As for the rest, just hilarious!  Judas the homo!  Kids getting S + Ds.  Man, we gotta find out who she is and have her give a speech at the next homo convention.  And that guy sitting behind her - he was about to split with laughter.  So funny!

Yeah, I'd love to toss a little salad right now.

Yeah, dr Kellie!!  It's the weekend!  Go a little crazy and toss the salad!!

Comment by dr kellie on May 11, 2012 at 5:06pm

Well, I'm 43, so I guess it's time to die.  I'm not feeling sick, so I guess I'll lick someones asshole and die of sepsis in about an hour.
