Dudes who feel the need to say No Homo after everything even vaguely suggestive often find their sexuality in Dire Straights.
M is for RIOT
Really cool short animation done by Rexis Liwanag. Nice, fluid animation, and I am always a fan of homophobic douchebags getting pimpsmacked. I just love that victory pose.
(You should totally check out this dude’s blog too. I love his art style. It’s so sleek and vibrant.)
Reasons I am going to hell #375: I just named my Corphish “CorbnPhisher”
John Barrowman taught me everything I need to know about being gay… Well, except for the loving dudes part. I came by that naturally.
So back in Pearl I had a male Mismagius in my main line-up. This was the gen that had the stickers you could add to pokeballs and make them do flashy stuff when they were summoned. So I named my Mismagius Bishamon and loaded it’s ball down with as many pink bubbles and glitter stickers as I could physically put on there so every time I summoned it, it would explode onto the scene in an explosion of pink bubbles and bishie sparkles…
… and somehow my friends were still amazed when I came out.
I am going to take over the world in the name of gay, science, logic, and gay science logic.
Who’s with me?
I am OK with this.
Clergy Rebukes Media for Asking Wrong Questions About Amendment One
May 6th, 2012 - In a press conference held in Greensboro, North Carolina, Clergy from around the state gathered together to pray for the wisdom of it’s citizens regarding the May 8th vote on Amendment One. In that conference, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber took the time to rebuke the media for asking the wrong questions regarding the amendment.
I have watched this thing like six times now. Seeing religious leaders step up and call for marriage equality gives me hope. I love how he emphasizes that this is not a matter of how people feel on the issue. It comes down to should one group have the power to limit the rights of another. Seeing as this man is a reverend, I have reason to believe he is a very religious person, and yet he sees the danger in allowing people to use the government to enforce ones religious views.
In the United States we have freedom of and from religion. I’ll have the remember that line. It is a powerful one, and it is a truth about the founding of this country that has been sorely forgotten by the general public.
Here is how freedom of religion works. Not being able to force others to live by the tenets of your religion does not limit or harm your religion. Forcing other people to live by the tenets of your religion limits and harms their religious freedom. This argument that marriage is dictated by god directly affects others’ religious freedoms.
Why are atheists now beholden to the a rules of marriage as dictated by a limited reading of an ancient text? An interpretation that is not even completely accepted within the ranks of the Christian community. I know of several Christian churches and communities who support gay rights, who support marriage equality, and who oppose all laws like this to limit religious freedom.
Do you know how many sects of Christianity there are? How many sub-sects of Christianity? There was recently a major split among the Presbyterian churches over allowing openly gay people to serve as leaders in their churches. Splits like this happen all the time. They are normal. The congregations are allowed to decide how they wish to observe their religion. You don’t like that brand of Christianity? Go find a congregation you agree with. What you do not do is go to the government and get them to strip the rights of everyone who does not agree with your particular blend of religion.
There are congregations that do not allow the playing of instruments in a service. They have specific scripture passages to back up their decision, and it is their decision. They can choose to have the entire service done a cappella. They are free to do so. It is their right to do so. The problem arises when a group of churches who have this same idea bands together to petition the government to stop all other churches from playing the organs, and guitars, and violins during their hymns. The church down the road having their happy, clappy, modern worship service does not in any way demean or diminish their churches solemn hymns.
If you go to a Church of Christ service and ask a random elder there and ask then “Why do we not use organs like the church down the road?” They would most likely quote the bible passage that they choose to adhere to in not having instrumentation in their hymns. If you were to then to ask “Well then why do we not petition the government to make these other churches adhere to the correct version of the gospel?” the same elders would look at you like you are insane, and yet there is a huge fervor in this country over forcing all people, regardless of religious affiliation, to adhere to a narrow reading of one particular religious group’s religious scripture.
People consider same sex couples kissing as porn. What the fuck. Like seriously? If that’s porn then there is A LOT of porn on tv in regards to hetero couples.
Ser diferente es lo mejor… no es saludable estar adaptados a una sociedad profundamente enferma.
in case you didn’t see it yesterday (:
