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!

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).

"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?

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.!

Grinning Cat, I love it!

Bertold and Joan, those Texas Republicans would surely love this version:

"Christianity is a chosen lifestyle that is contrary to the fundamental truths that have been revealed in nature, recognized by our nation's founders, and shared by many rational people. Christianity must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle in public policy, nor should family be redefined to include couples united in Christian ceremonies. We oppose the granting of special tax exemptions or legal entitlements or creation of special status for Christian behavior, regardless of state of origin. We oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose Christianity out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values."

Only in election years do we have such nonsense floating in the air. Not.
