Ruth has written before about the Persecutor-Victim-Rescuer triangle, a pattern in which people see and define themselves exclusively in terms of those three roles. Notably, if you're a victim (in reality or imagination) long enough, you collect "anger stamps" and "self-pity stamps" which you can cash in for "free" attacks and persecution on your (real or imagined) persecutors, all morally OK because "they deserve it!"
Too true, Carl. There's this cheery news too:
Alabama signs law allowing adoption agencies to refuse gay couples
There's nothing like making bigotry great again!
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
~ 1 Philippians 4:13
Just another of the lies preached, taught, and promised to frightened, hurt, and depressed people who feel and think they are helpless. Turning to dependency, or external and supernatural powers does not lead to remedies; rather, submitting to such devices creates victims.
Bertold, during this Grab-em-by-the-pussy administration, I'm not expecting any bold steps forward for LGBT's. Sadly at this point, we need to fight just to keep the status quo so we don't lose what we've fought so hard to achieve.
True, Carl, it is a victory of sorts, but there's no shortage of other assholes where this one came from.
In other news.....
Anti-LGBT TN Senator Mark Green Withdraws Nomination as Army Secretary, Citing Attack on His Christian Beliefs
"Tragically, my life of public service and my Christian beliefs have been mischaracterized and attacked by a few on the other side of the aisle for political gain," Green said in a statement sent to NBC News. "While these false attacks have no bearing on the needs of the Army or my qualifications to serve, I believe it is critical to give the President the ability to move forward with his vision to restore our military to its rightful place in the world."
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement earlier this week,
"A man who was the lead sponsor of legislation to make it easier for businesses to discriminate against the LGBTQ community; opposes gay marriage, which is the law of the land; believes being transgender is a 'disease'; supports constricting access to legal contraception; and makes deeply troubling comments about Muslims is the wrong choice to lead America's Army."
This is a nice victory for our community.
Trump’s Executive Order Spared LGBTQ People. Trumpcare Could Kill T...
The House trumpcare's Planned Parenthood defunding hits twice for queer and transgender Americans, many of whom depend on Medicaid and rely on Planned Parenthood for sensitive care or transition services.
The Johnson Amendment is only as good as its enforcement, and the president* basically told the IRS to not worry about it. Granted, it's never been enforced strongly, with only one church ever losing its tax-exempt status over partisan politicking (the Church at Pierce Creek, Conklin, NY, over newspaper ads telling Christians they could not vote for Bill Clinton).
