I usually think about videos, "Maybe I'll watch it later."

Glad I watched Staceyann Chin's powerful speech now!

Here is a moving and stirring speech given by New York poet Staceyann Chin at the LGBT Center On Halsted in Chicago.  It's well worth a listen.  A transcript can be found in this article:  DNAinfo Chicago.

Yeah.

A rough analogy, as much as anything can be a suitable analogy: I don't like rap music. I even question whether it should be called "music". I simply don't listen to it.

If I were spending years of my life crusading against it, condemning listeners and artists to hellfire, protesting at concerts, trying to get it banned from the radio, from YouTube, from iTunes, that would suggest some deeper problem!

GC that is a lot of people's suspicion about Omar Mateen as well.

Someone on NPR the other day was saying that the evidence is mixed as to whether many rabid homophobes are fighting their own homosexual feelings. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if Pastor Manning is actually attracted to men (and is desperately denying it to try to get right with his god).

Manning is an infamous wacko preacher who lost his church due to financial issues. he's the guy who claimed Starbucks adds gay semen to Lattes.

Using his proclamations for anything other than ridicule, is wasted effort.

"Sodomy is more dangerous to America than radical Islam."

What The Actual Fuck?  Dangerous like interracial marriage is, or the right to divorce or equality for women in the workplace?  Why do I get the distinct feeling that this guy is hung up on anal intercourse?

Carl, I agree with your frustration.
This, along with 1000 other reasons, is why we need to elect the Democrat presidential candidate, the Democrat senator and Congressional repressentative candidates, and democrats for local and governor offices. Republicans want to pack the SUpreme court and roll back current progress, re-legalize prior discrimination, create new discrimination, and engage in dangerous, sometimes lethal, scapegoating.

I wish the corporate media would do a better job of highlighting tea-party abuses, and really show comparisons of how states do under liberal vs. conservative legislatures and governments. Which degree of progress and prosperity, health and freedom, do most AMericans want - Albania? Or Massachusetts? Mississippi? Or Washington State?

I'm a pretty upbeat and optimistic person but sometimes I just want to give up on the future of humanity. Overly religious extremists may be a fringe part of our society by the numbers, but they sure are running the show by holding a disproportionate amount of government positions. I guess what annoys me most is that anyone in the same political party who may seemingly have moderate views votes for these measures as to not buck the party label.  Pathetic.

And at the federal level as well.  Case in point...

Lawmakers vote down LGBT rights measure

"Shouts of "Shame, shame, shame," erupted in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday as Republican lawmakers narrowly defeated legislation to protect the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of government contractors."

Good statement revisions, Joan and Grinning Cat.  You two, and the rest of you here, are the best of humanity.!
