Grinning Cat, that quote of yours kicks MAJOR-LEAGUE ASS.  The final two statements:

Pushed out? No. I walked out.

speak to the thought Jeff gave this matter, the conclusion he came to and the choice he made, one that many of us in our own way share with him.

Smokin' stuff, GC, thanks for posting it!

As I am a transwoman I really enjoyed her talents.  The best part of this is that we "Ts" as a group are slowly catching up with the rest of the LGB+T community.  When I was her age in the 40s & 50s you were either in the closet or dead.  I may have enough time left to see us fully intregated as I could make another 20 years.  A lot are making it to 100 these days and we are making progress.  Even us Atheists are gaining ground.  It has been years since people ran in terror if they found you to be one of those scary heathens that were "Non Believers"

She's really a beautiful person, and has a beautiful voice.  I'm a fan:-)

My father was a Catholic deacon, my mother was a lay minister and I thought about becoming a priest. I was in church every Sunday for the first 15 years of my life. Now I spend my Sundays on my bike, on my snowboard or on my husband. I haven’t spent my post-Catholic decades in a sulk, wishing the church would come around on the issue of homosexuality so that I could start attending Mass again. I didn’t abandon my faith. I saw through it. The conflict between my faith and my sexuality set that process in motion, but the conclusions I reached at the end of that process — there are no gods, religion is man-made, faith can be a force for good or evil — improved my life. I’m grateful that my sexuality prompted me to think critically about faith. Pushed out? No. I walked out.

A wonderful new program just started at a Chicago high school:

LGBT Mentor Program Launches at Lincoln Park High School

The dean of the high school is heading a mentor program, which pairs recent university graduates with LGBT teens at the high school to help them deal with issues such as bullying and how and whether to come out to their families while still in their teens.

There are no similar programs in the city, lest the country, Lang said, and he hopes the model could expand city-wide and serve as an example across the country.

The first meeting was held at the school in mid-April and drew an even greater attendance than the organizers anticipated, leaving them in search of more mentors.

And now in Delaware.  I think Rhode Island is expected to be next.

Who after that?  I expect, not, Mississippi.  Also depends on US Supreme Court.

As for countries....  UK maybe?

France passed marriage equality.



from christian science monitor:  In France, there has been blood. Recently there were attacks in gay bars in Lille and Bordeaux. One man who was beaten up in Paris while walking with his partner posted a photo of himself on Facebook afterwards, battered and bruised, declaring it the “Face of Homophobia.”

I was surprised about the size and intensity of the homophobe backlash - egged on by priests?  I don't know.  hard to imagine it has been spontaneous.  

I guess, we can view imams as sources of terrorism, but not feel the same way about priests?

Regardless, I'm happy that the largest country so far has passed marriage equality.

What a GREAT speech!!  I laughed at the "gay rainbow" across his electorate.  "BE NOT AFRAID"!!
