The fight for equality - thoughts on this coming election.


It will be close in WA state.  I'm not going to get emotionally investing in winning any of this fights, including in my state.


In Maine, Catholic front group NOM, plus Knights of Columbus, probably having a big impact.


In Maryland, Catholics church also a major contributor against equality.


AfricanAmerican vote is key in Maryland  - changing views on equality may help.


Looking at how close the votes are, and also the national presidential election (almost seems like there are no other votes happening), and the historic and prevalent disdain for LGBT people, I'm not holding my breath.


Anybody more optimistic?


Anybody working for change?  I've given $$$ for marriage equality and for Obama, but long work hours prevent me from other involvement.  I fear the $$$ are profoundly wasted on robocalls, useless surveys, and meaningless shallow ads, but I don't know what else an individual can do.

Loren...amazing!  I have been saying for years that gay marriage bans are JUST like the anti-miscegenation laws of the past.  And just as useless.

I remember when I left SoCal for the first time in 1957 to tour with an ice show.  We played a lot of towns in the South, and it was almost a physical shock, like walking into a wall, when I first saw things like segregated waiting rooms in railroad stations, side-by-side segregated drinking fountains, city busses with little signs by every seat saying who could sit where, and more.  (Poll Taxes=Voter suppression?)  I'd read about things like that, but actually seeing the labels and hearing the verbal bigotry was something else again.

Oh, yes.  The arenas and auditoriums we played were segregated, too.  The descendants of slaves had to sit in the topmost balcony, or arena section.  Bizarre!

The preacher was right, there IS no difference between segregation and denying LGBT people their civil rights.

I've been wondering WHO'S NEXT?  Atheists?  Hmmmm?

That was worth waiting for.

Thanks, Loren!

Loren - nice video!

Here's a rather interesting speech before a city council, regarding gay marriage.  Be aware - this guy is NOT what he seems at the beginning.  Like the sign says: WAIT FOR IT!

I don't know if freezing grape juice would make Jesus cold-blooded...he already was IMO.  According to the myths, he rudely repudiated his mother in public at least three different times, so...I would say yes.  Even without making any Welch's Grape Pops.

And...New Testicle Testament dogma says that God, Jesus, and the Holey Spook are all one being, so in his persona as the Spook, he knocked up his own mother.  What does THAT make him?  Eh?

OH!  Halloween costume!  Just a torn up, raggedy old sheet...The Holey Ghost!

How's that for "blasphemy"?

Sacraments - Quakers do not practice a ritual baptism but believe that life, when lived in the example of Jesus Christ, is a sacrament. Similarly, to the Quaker, silent meditation, seeking revelation directly from God, is their form of communion.

Dominic, those cookies sound really special!  I want some!  I wish I was artistic!

Sk8eycat, that's making me hungry!  I love oyster crackers!  Except I like them with chili instead of grape juice.  When I was a kid, I used to split them in half and put a chili bean in the middle - tiny little sandwiches.  Grape juice makes grate pops, tho - just freeze them on a pop mold for a few hours.  Would that make Jesus cold-blooded?
