Right-Winger: Megyn Kelly’s Ratings Stink Because Liberal Men Are “All Gay”

Patheos

“Real men like beautiful women,” Root said. “Liberal men? You could walk into a room and they wouldn’t even notice. They’re too busy worrying about the poor. They don’t care about beautiful legs, they don’t care about your beautiful face and your blonde hair and your tight skirt. They don’t care!”

. . . He also compared criticism of Trump to the crucifixion of Jesus… which I think says more about his religion than liberals.

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. "

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 

Bastille Day

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!

Gratitude feels good, but those who made today's rights and freedoms possible have to proudly pat their own backs.

Laying the gratitude burden on the young will keep them from pushing for the subtle rights and freedoms that were too well hidden for their elders to see.

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.

Carl, most of you know my oldest grandson is gay and married his husband a year ago. I've reminded him more than once that his generation has had it relatively easy. To be openly gay now, compared to thirty or even twenty years ago, is not the harsh path that it was then. The young ones owe a huge debt of gratitude to the prior generations.

An aside: today I saw a bumper sticker that said, "I'm gay and I vote". Pretty remarkable considering its an especially conservative place even for Texas. On the same bumper, "Come the rapture, can I have your car?" :)

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.

Daniel, I thank you for the Gay Muslim marriage in UK, although I could not hear a word. I tried several different things to get the audio; nothing worked. 

The beautiful garments and flowers looked splendid. I tried to read lips or imagine what they said, but could not.
