Kathy, I wonder if they know the stories of those who have been harassed, tortured and murdered in the U.S. because the victim was gay?
I wonder if your grandson and his husband know the struggles to get such crimes listed as "Hate" crimes?
The Southern Povery Law Center was an important part of our team in Spokane when charges were ready to be filed and argued in court.
I read their newsletters and here is one that your and your grandson and his partner need to know and understand.
ALLIANCE DEFENDING FREEDOM
"Founded by some 30 leaders of the Christian Right, the Alliance Defending Freedom is a legal advocacy and training group that specializes in supporting the recriminalization of homosexuality abroad, ending same-sex marriage, and generally making life as difficult as possible for LGBT communities in the U.S. and internationally. "
Andrew, I LOVE your bumperstickers!
Iyour bumper stickers!
Daniel, Sadly, I can't understand the audio in "muslim gay marriage in UK".
It is extremely difficult for so many of us to break away from toxic families, religions, attitudes, traditions, and values. We fail to see that we are part of a magnificent universe and we receive so many very valuable senses as part of our makeup. Each element of our being contains the energy to open up into a fully functioning human being, just as a rose opens up to be a fully functioning flower. Families and religions too often get in the way of human development. They try to mold others to be something different.
I hereby declare by the authority vested in me by the universe, this is
I declare this day, __________, as a turning point in my life and a celebration of discovering who I am, what I feel, what I want, and what I need to make me productive, healthy and happy. I feel like a parade and party marking this day as the first day of the rest of MY life!
About all I can stack being gay and religious up to, Daniel, is a combination of indoctrination, cultural pressure, and ignorance of their holy books. When I look at the vehemence with which some fundamentalists go after the LGBTQ community, I can't imagine supporting ANY branch of religion, no matter how liberal they might be.
For the life of me, I can't understand why gay people stay with their religions, when it's clear that they are picking and choosing what their gods like, even with the knowledge that their gods most like to see them reviled, tortured, and killed. However, if their visibility and continued community in their religions, bring about more acceptance, then I suppose it's a good thing.
Kathy, I agree with you about the gift that prior generations of LGBT people have given to future generations. Unfortunately, ageism is as present in LGBT populations, as it is in the straight world. Not universal, but common.
Trying again on video regarding a muslim gay marriage in UK.
We can though in some Hindu - Lutheran influence at a wedding in California.
I love the interview, Carl! And it is important to remember - LGBT-friendly shops here are marked with a sticker that bears the name of the last gay who was executed in this town in the 19th century. Gruesome to think of.
The Gay Muslim Marriage video, doesn't work here.
