I forget if I posted this already.  I just want to point out how easy it is to be a caring human.  No trouble , no fuss.   The whole USA needs to see how easy and kind, how grand this is.   I thank the school system for their leadership that did the right thing.  Hugs

‘We don’t believe him’: Dan Savage rejects Trump’s attempt to foster LGBT-Muslim tensions

Source: ‘We don’t believe him’: Dan Savage rejects Trump’s attempt to foster LGBT-Muslim tensions

Columnist and activist Dan Savage bluntly rebuked Donald Trump on Tuesday for his response to the Orlando mass shooting attack.

“We’re not gonna fall for it,” Savage told MSNBC host Chris Hayes. “You can’t draw a clean line between the LGBT community and the Muslim community because there are LGBT Muslims in the United States and all over the world. Muslims are a part of the LGBT community, not distinct from it. LGBT people come from all races, all faiths, all ethnic backgrounds, all classes. And Donald Trump attempting to pit the queer community against the Muslim community is not going to fly. We don’t believe him.”

The presumptive GOP presidential candidate has already drawn heavy criticism — includingfrom within his own party — for doubling down on his call to ban Muslim immigration into the US in the wake of the attack. Hayes argued that Trump had also employed “a certain kind of European right-wing politics” in which he uses anti-Muslim and anti-immigration rhetoric to paint himself as an ally to LGBT Americans.

“Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring Islamic extremists to our country and who suppress women, gays and anyone else who doesn’t share their views or values,”Trump said. “Ask yourself, who really is the friend of women and the LB and LBGT community: Donald Trump with his actions or Hillary Clinton with her words?”

But Savage argued that Trump has also promised to undo the legality of same-sex marriage.

“Donald Trump is the enemy of the LGBT community just as he is the enemy of the Muslim community,” said Savage. “Beating up on what is in the United States a vulnerable minority group isn’t the way that you impress other members of other vulnerable minority groups to win their support.”

Blackout: Pakistan – YouTube

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, Political, Questions, Religion, Sad, Sex — Scottie @ 22:23

This is a hard video to watch, but it is well worth it. Several very important things are talked about. First the idea that should concern all of us, in the video the cleric and politicians are trying to impose and force everyone to live under their religious laws as the clerks see them. No exceptions no having a different view. sound familiar? It really should, because that what the fundamentalist, the extremists, and all the religious leaders that want to repeal all advances in human rights to force every one to live by their version of their personal religious code. To me this is supper scary because this is the same thing that the religious right wants to do in this country. In Muslim countries with Islam as the religion they call the biblical laws “sharia laws”. It means the holy book is the supreme law of the land and everyone must be held to it. Here in the USA many christian groups want to force everyone to do that very same thing, to live by their religious views, only their views, and you have no say in your life but are forced a point of the gun of law, religious law, to follow them. That is simply christian sharia law. Yet while the people like Ralph Reed, Pat of the 700 club, Bryan Fisher an the AFA, or any of the religious groups that spout hate and lies to pretend they are not bigots, just saving the children. These groups are a huge threat to liberty in this country, not same sex marriage, not non discrimination laws, but the idea that they want to restrict your rights, your freedoms, your every thought and deed to conform to their personal view of one religion. Not to mention there are I read 1400 different christian sects, which every single one says they are the only true on , the only religion and they all insist you be forced to follow them.

Second on the punishment they hand out.. seems barbaric and horrible to us right? We are an enlighten society. However several republican members of our own congress have called for similar measures against law abiding gay citizen. Yes our own congress and many states have tried to pass laws that call for prison or other harm to people who are gay. One congress person wanted to quarantine all gays on an island. How many times have we heard a jerk in power say that being gay was the same as a child steamroller and that only gays spread disease, and my favorite, all the hurricanes and natural “act of God” happenings are the fault of gays as god is giving us warnings to get rid of those gay people. How much is done to pander to their base, I don’t know , but as a gay man who has fought all my life for the simple freedoms and rights every tone straight person has, I can tell you how scary these religious groups are. So lets remind all those people who try to make us live by their religion that it is called sharia law, the very same things they are so against when it is another religious trying to enforce it.

One last thing, if your talking to someone and they say the founding fathers were deeply religious, they were tight with god and they wanted god involved with everything, and that they founded this country to be a christian nation, and that they wanted everyone to be deep in the christian faith, tell them they are full of shit. Tell them to stop getting their history for the waked out answers in genesis web site. Go look at the truth and you will find that your church school or home schooling fanatic mom did not tell you the truth. OK I am not going to drag this out, there is so much more to say, but dealing and refuting these jerks is a full time job in it self. Many hugs to all and best wishes.

I would like to thank Joe.My.God for posting this. Very informative to how extreme fundamentalists are getting. I would love to have someone go through this responding to each line, as almost every sentence is a distortion or out right lie. I can think of a dozen people who could do a great Job with this. Just a few off the top of my head are Ark, Arch, Nan, Victoria, and so many more I have met on Arks blog. Oh it would be so sweet to read the rebuttal. One last thing, this shows just how the religious fanatics view tolerance for everyone, it really means they get their own way and have to force everyone to do as they wish. Screw the rights of someone else who doesn’t agree with your religious views, nope they have to give up their rights for something that doesn’t even affect them. To them it means no tolerance for those with different views, LGBT, or even of a non-extreme version of their faith. I see how they worry about their own rights but Kim Davis denying a right of marriage to a same sex couples, denying their legal rights in refusing to DO HER JOB when it did not affect her, they defend her , her actions and yet scream they are the ones being denied rights. What a distorted world they live in. Hugs

What bothers me and the reason I am posting this, is the statement here : “I want the school boards of America in the hands of evangelical Christians within the next four to six years,” he said. “And it can happen and that will have a huge impact…”. See this is the problem with these people. If gay people even want acclaimed books like “Heather has two mommies” in the school libraries the religious organisations scream we are indoctrinating little kids. These same groups keep claiming they are the victims and all they want is tolerance. Yet here you can see their true colors. They don’t want to have tolerance , nor do they want to live and let live. No they want us eradicated, want all of us gone, and they fight for the right to enshrine discrimination against just us in law. While we just ask for our rights under the constitution and the law, we don’t seek to shut down the their churches, we don’t want to shut down their bible groups, we don’t want their preaching off the TV and other media. All the things we don’t want to do to them, they want to do to us. They want all gay people off the TV. They want all books that have even a gay or transgender person banned. They want to shut down our clubs, because we are gay. I also have seen what happens when fanatic religious groups take over a school board. It happened in West Palm Beach when we lived there. They ran saying that their religion would not interfere with their duties to public schools, then when on the board they tried to force every tenet of their religion on to all the school kids. Funny thing was all Christian holidays were extended, but other faiths did not get their religious holidays honored. If you follow this stuff in the news you know what Texas has done now that front. The fanatic religious groups got the text books reworded and and hyped up with silly stuff that went with their religion. They down played other faiths, they trashed science, they had the texts say things that were not true, changing history , biology, and any science , worse they had the text books not only favor the christian bible but had the bible installed as a resources book, the bible was to be used over any other text. We have to stop this as soon as possible. So don’t let the local elections get away from us. Hugs

I am either getting tired, or too interested in what show is on the other screen as I had to read this several times before it sunk in to my brain. I Think we should understand how we look to the rest of the world. So often I hear how the USA should lead the world. We constantly are bombarded by politicians who want us to meddle everywhere in the world, mostly militarily. So note how the world see us on social issues. Maybe if we had a better record on social issues, social needs , we wouldn’t be hated in other countries so much. Hugs

Man Interrogates Woman For Using Women’s Restroom – YouTube

Filed under: Gender, Harm, News — Scottie @ 17:26

Please watch this. It shows just how backward and unsafe these “bathroom laws” are for people. It shows how now anyone, of any gender, feels they can question anyone using a restroom, follow them into the bathroom and basically CAUSE the very thing they were trying to make the laws against. Fact is things were fine and there was no problem until a few god people felt we all had to live under their rules, and be the gender they decided we were. A few days ago I posted about a girl being manhandled and thrown out of a female bathroom by MALE police. These laws and the horrible things being said that goes with them from church nuts and right wing politicians seems to give anyone the right to challenge any one else. NO one has the right to demand some one prove that they are one gender or the other. What if it is a crook who thinks they can steal someones ID if they can get them to show it so they can prove they may or may not be which gender. I have already posted a few videos this morning showing how religious NUTS went into a target and one of the hateful things they kept saying was that they believed their deity made things their way and we ALL had to live by the sayings and rules of THEIR god. Stop these hateful laws and hateful speeches and hateful people NOW. Hugs
