Obama Comes out On Same Sex

The media is having a field day carefully cutting out just the right snippet to throw massive fuel on the fire. Today I applaud and cheer President Obama for his public stance on same-sex marriage. Now, will the so-called Jesus lovers stop the hate and think of ways to show grace to their homosexual brothers and sisters? Probably not since it's not just Jesus these conservatives love, but rules and regulations.

Oh man, some white people

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/25/fox-news-gretchen-carlson_n_1452379.html I get Gretchen, she thinks the office shouldn't do comed shows (unless it's Mitt). Double standards much? But she has a point. But wow, 'the rap'? Her co-hosts are nutjobs.

Discourse

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.
Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.


In 50 years our political discourse has run amok. The 'two party' system we cherish has been fragmented to the point of no repair. What now?

Maybe a step back to remember where we came from will refresh our insight and improve our future....
