I feel guilty

Filed under: Family, My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 18:37

Sorry everyone.  Ron had asked me to make a spaghetti sauce for him and so today mid morning I did so.  I made a spaghetti lunch for him with two kinds of Texas toast ( do not put it in the toaster, it is not really toast.  Yes I did that many years ago. ) He volunteered to clean it all up for me while I spent time on line.  

Well feeling fat and fine I followed him to the bedroom where he felt the need for a nap.  I was reading my Ipad when the next thing I knew it was almost 6 PM.  So I am not going to post too much more today if anything.  I will start going to other grand blogs to see what others have posted.   Thanks.  Hugs

Franklin Garham doesn’t want kids watching cartoons to know same sex marriages exist and are no big deal

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Family, Fascism, Gender, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 13:55

Days of freak outs by major religious figures are getting more and more silly.   The cartoon did not glorify sin, claim all kids need to be gay, or force kids to be godless and marry their same gender.   It is a secular show in a secular country that showed a normal legal activity.   Grow up already.   I am more worried these same cartoon kids have been in the third grade for 20 or 30 years.  What kind of message is that sending?   Please read the short article at the web page as I am tired of posting dumb shit for today.     Hugs

Remember this humanitarian crisis is caused by tRump administration refusing to release people for hearings and for cutting down on judges and hearing officers.  Their intent is for none of these brown people to be able to stay in the US.   The administration hopes to be so cruel these people simply give up and go back to death.   Hugs

CNN has obtained exclusive photos from the McAllen Border Patrol station which show young children sleeping outside on rocks over the weekend.
A baby bottle filled with milk can be seen in one photo next to a child sleeping outside on dirt, and in another, a woman is seen sitting on rocks leaning against a wall clutching a child.
Additional photos show the chaos and overcrowding at the station’s outdoor temporary holding area. According to a CBP official, when indoor holding facilities are full, they are forced to keep people outside to await processing.

Trump Laughs At Rally Call To Shoot Migrants

Trump Laughs At Rally Call To Shoot Migrants [VIDEO]

New York Magazine reports:

“Shoot them,” he yelled, which caused the president, and much of the televised backdrop of crowd members, to laugh. “Only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement,” Trump said, interpreting the call to violence as a joke.

The Washington Post reports:

The fans seated directly behind Trump wore serious, perturbed frowns, which were quickly replaced by broad grins after the shouted suggestion that the solution involved firearms. Uproarious laughter rippled across the room as audience members whistled and offered a round of applause.

To critics, Trump’s failure to outright condemn the idea of shooting migrants amounted to a “tacit endorsement” of the sentiment.

Many pointed out that such rhetoric was especially concerning in light of the fact that an armed militia group, the United Constitutional Patriots, had been searching the borderlands for undocumented migrants and detaining them against their will.

Texas GOP State Rep: Vaccines Are Communist Sorcery

Are these people home schooled?   Is this the educated people religion values?   Religion treating kids like property and denying them proven medical treatment in favor of “god’s will”.   Our society is screwed!!!!  Hugs

Texas GOP State Rep: Vaccines Are Communist Sorcery

NBC News reports:

A Republican state legislator from Texas went on an extended Twitter rant on Tuesday, dismissing concerns over an ongoing measles outbreak in his state and calling vaccines “sorcery,” “dangerous,” and “self-enriching ‘science.’”

State Department Appeals Federal Ruling Granting Birthright Citizenship To Child Of Bi-National Gay Dads

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Family, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 14:41

When will these bigoted assholes just get over it and stop trying to tear families apart?  The administration just cannot get over skin color and same sex marriages.   Bastards.   They may have to let the gays get married but they do not have to let them have the rights of marriage.  They are chipping away what it means to be married for same sex couples to make it so our marriage mean nothing.   Hugs

State Department Appeals Federal Ruling Granting Birthright Citizenship To Child Of Bi-National Gay Dads

Via press release from Immigration Equality:

Yesterday, the U.S. State Department appealed the decision of a California federal district court that recognized the birthright citizenship of Ethan Dvash-Banks, the child of a same-sex bi-national couple. The government refuses to recognize the validity of Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks’ marriage, and continues to defend its discriminatory policy, which conditions the recognition of birthright citizenship on a biological link to a U.S. citizen parent.

Aaron C. Morris, Executive Director of Immigration Equality, said, “Once again, the State Department is refusing to recognize Andrew and Elad’s rights as a married couple. The government’s decision to try to strip Ethan of his citizenship is unconstitutional, discriminatory, and morally reprehensible. This is settled law in the Ninth Circuit, which has already established that citizenship may pass from a married parent to a child regardless of whether or not they have a biological relationship.”

The Border Patrol’s 2 New Tent Camps Cost $37 Million. Take a Look Inside.

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Family, Fascism, Harm, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 12:34

US concentration camps for migrant families?   The video has much more information than the article does.  These are not short term.  The amount of space a family gets is about 1 1/2 a king sized bed.     If you can please watch the video.   I did not see any TV or other things in the video.   Hugs

Some images have emerged over the years: A large warehouse in the South Texas city of McAllen, where migrants wait, often in frigid temperatures, in chain-link holding areas; a crowded enclosure underneath a bridge in El Paso, Tex., where immigrants for several days in March slept on gravel littered with paper cups and potato chip bags.

The Trump administration this week signaled its intent to speed up asylum processing, and the new acting homeland security secretary, Kevin K. McAleenan, has said he wants to keep migrants in custody while their applications are being reviewed.

 

 

 

No hearings, on the spot refusals / denials and deportations.

A Trio of Bald Eagles, Included Two Dads, Is Successfully Raising Three Eaglets

A Trio of Bald Eagles, Included Two Dads, Is Successfully Raising Three Eaglets

 

How many times have conservative Christians complained about a child being raised by same-sex couples? How many times have they freaked out about the possibility of adoption by more than two parents? It’s unnatural! It’s bad for the child! WHAT WOULD JESUS THINK?!

Well, they’re going to hate this story about baby eaglets at the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge in Illinois being taken care of by three parents… and then, after the mother (Hope) died, by two male bald eagles (Valor I and Valor II) who appear to be parenting together for the sake of the kids.

What’s weird is that bald eagles usually move on to a new mate when they lose their current one, so the expectation would’ve been for these two male eagles to find new partners immediately. And yet they stayed together to take care of their eaglets. Having that “extra” parent has been a boost for them.

Now there’s a new female eagle in the sanctuary and all three are bonding well.

It’s the Christian Right’s worst nightmare.

The Religious Hypocrisy in This Decades-Old Adoption Controversy is Appalling

This is important to read and understand what they were doing.  It is what trump does.  It is projection of their own actions on to others.   Hugs

The Religious Hypocrisy in This Decades-Old Adoption Controversy is Appalling

You’re going to want to sit down before you read this.

More than 20 years ago, there was a controversy in Indiana involving a gay man (and his partner) who wanted to adopt a family of three boys and a girl from foster care. Because the girl, Ashley, had been living without her brothers with an older Christian couple, her custody became a battle in the culture wars. You had an entire community of conservative Christians railing against the possibility of kids being placed in the home of a gay man. The Christian couple’s pastor, Brad Brizendine, wrote a nasty public letter blasting the child welfare officials for their lack of “heartfelt concern for the moral well-being of the children.” (Emphasis his.)

Ultimately, the boys were allowed to go home with the gay man, Craig Peterson.

Ashley stayed with the Christian couple, Sandy and Earl “Butch” Kimmerling.

What nobody else knew at the time was that Butch Kimmerling — who had told the media how horrible it would be for Ashley to live with gay men — was molesting Ashley.

The moral hypocrisy and sexual assault had been going on during the custody battle. The entire time Pastor Brad Brizendine was telling the world about why every child needed a mother and father, Ashley was being abused by her church-going, Bible-believing father.

Christian leader upset gay people get to do what straight people do all the time in public.

Franklin Graham: Pete Buttigieg “Flaunted” His Sinful Homosexuality

Franklin Graham: Pete Buttigieg “Flaunted” His Sinful Homosexuality

It’s never a good sign when evangelist Franklin Graham‘s name is trending on Twitter. This time, it was for calling on Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg to repent for flaunting his gayness.

In Franklin’s mind, though, that just means Buttigieg is doing with his husband in public what straight couples do all the time: They’re happy and affectionate and not ashamed of their relationship.

That said, Graham’s selective anger is telling. You know what else should not be “flaunted” or “praised” according to Graham’s own interpretation of the Bible? Adultery. Paying off a porn star to keep her quiet about said adultery. Sexual assault. Lying. Telling people to lie for you. Ignorance. Cruelty. And the Bible doesn’t come with an asterisk that says those things are sins only when committed by a Democrat.

Buttigieg has only been married once. As far as we know, he’s remained faithful. His relationship is strong, and he’s not afraid of showing affection for his partner while campaigning.

Graham seems incapable of recognizing love because he’s blinded by his bigotry. And he’s all too eager to turn a blind eye when his preferred candidate commits sin after sin.
