I'll pass on his concluding line, but except for that it was pretty amazing. Too bad the hypocrisy doesn't become visible to more religionists!
Did you ever wonder when the day would come that a bible-thumper would call his own congregation and organization on their hypocrisy regarding gays and Lesbians? Thought that would be a rare day in May, didn't you?Well, it's late July ... and that day may have arrived! Check THIS out:
Pope Francis' approval ratings dropping. Pink News speculates it has to do with the pope's increasingly visible homophobia, having backed down from his "who am I to judge" stance.
It must suck to think that backing down from his early quick PR campaign leads to loss of credibility.
Louisiana's chief asshole governor, Bobby Jindahl, spent $371,548.63 of his state's taxpayer dollars to fight marriage equality, while cutting education and other benefits in his state. Jindahl is a pathetic piece of crocodahl dung. Not that I would use an ad hominem.

Kind of a treat. I guess we could look at candles as emblematic of the fires of hell.
It's always much easier to find a lover than a true friend, but if a lover isn't at least one of your best friends, what's the point?
From BBC,40 great quotations about marriage.
Note, those are all about heterosexual marriage. Many are about how the sexes have different temperaments, expectations, comforts, excitements, opportunities, etc. However, there is one I particularly found meaningful:
“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages”
German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)
I have known for decades that conservatives of all types need something, or somebody, to hate. It's part of their nature.
I remember watching the Berlin Wall being destroyed and wondering (knowing it was not the end) who was going to be the next target of the religious wrong..(Even though the xians had nothing to do with the collapse of the USSR. That was a foregone conclusion when the old Bolsheviks started dying off.)
If non-undergodders are the next target, I think we'll be in deep doo-doo because the Islamic fanatics will probably join them.... while fighting each other at the same time.
I sincerely hope I'll be dead by then.
Bill Nye on homosexuality and evolution.
What a lame answer. It's nice that he was supportive, but apparently he hasn't read anything on the topic since Desmond Morris' "The Naked Ape" in the 60s. There is so much more information. It's well known that in nature, same sex attraction is common for many species. Has Nye heard of something called "Google"? He could have read this BBC article, or many others.
Much as I like that Nye is a spokesperson for science and rationality, this response was lame. Too bad for that.
No question we will continue to experience discrimination for the rest of our lives. In addition to the overt discrimination, which we often see and read about, many people will continue to discriminate covertly, and lie while doing it.
One thing I will not do is let the assholes get me down. I've lived through too much, worked too hard, seen too much. This is our one life, and I will live it the best I can.
