Real Christians aren’t assholes
In High School I had a friend who was super religious, her whole family was. Despite this, she was pro-marriage equality, pro-choice, and never once tried to convert me or make me feel bad about my own religious decisions (I was and still am an agnostic). She was always kind, and treated everyone with respect, regardless of race, religion, or orientation. For her the heart and soul of being a Christian was to love others and treat others with dignity. She was a real Christian.
REMINDER: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE USE JESUS AS AN EXCUSE TO BE AN ASSHOLE EVER. NEVER.
I can trust individual Catholics again.
I am not sure I can trust the institution of the Catholic Church again.
When I came out, the biggest surprise was a friend from high school. He was studying to be a Catholic priest, but he never judged or condemned me. His younger brother, on the other hand, who had dated an openly bisexual pagan, refused to ever talk to me again.
Believing in a religion does not automatically dictate someone’s level of acceptance.
Most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.
BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Inc™ and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software
So lemme get this… the developer/CEO of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???
this exists in the actual world and people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….
okay!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes!!!!!!!! also, are they lookin for a sugar baby?
and because I ran out of room:
BOOM! THANK YOU. I’ve been screaming about this for who knows how long, but I cannot word it as perfectly as some of you do. I hope people realize what queer baiting actually is and start taking it with the seriousness it deserves to be treated with.
ALL OF THIS!
91 year old Vivian Boyack marrying her girlfriend Alice Dubes after 72 years of relationship
I am so happy for them. It’s impossible for a piece of paper to strengthen a relationship that’s been through more than seven decades of love, secrecy, pain, struggles, joy, excitement, fighting, and making up. What a legal marriage will change, is ensuring that they will have the right to spend every moment of their life together with each other. It will ensure that the life they’ve built together won’t be torn apart by next of kin or the state, if one of them dies. It will prevent hospitals from separating them in the event of an illness. It will guarantee them the right to make legal and medical decisions for each other.
A legal marriage won’t strengthen the love they have for each other, but it will protect it. It will make sure that they’re remaining years can be spent together, without the fear of what ifs or maybes.
The U.S. military could bring an immediate end to the ban on transgender service members, according to a new report.
In the study, released this week, a nine-member commission determined that allowing open service by transgender people would be “neither excessively complex nor burdensome.” This new report comes five months after a similar study debunked the outdated medical rationale for the ban.
This week, Chattanooga, TN voters rejected a city ordinance that would have protected LGBT city employees from discrimination, as well as extended health benefits to employees’ same-sex domestic partners.
According to BuzzFeed, 13,685 people voted to repeal the equal rights ordinance, while only 8,184 voted to keep it in place.
Opponents who organized the campaign against the ordinance said they hope the city will now respect “the will of the people,” according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press. “What we want them to take away from this is that the people have spoken,” Chattanooga Tea Party President Mark West. …
The city’s mayor, Andy Berke — who supported the ordinance — said that in the wake its repeal, “I want every City employee to know one thing — your work is valued and you are important to the future of our community,” according to the WTVC report. “Regardless of the results tonight, my Administration will continue to hire and promote the best people who provide excellent service to our constituents.”
There are places in this country where abiding by “the will of the people” would mean reinstating slavery. I call BS on using “the will of the people” to eliminate rights.
This is what happens when you let three wolves and a sheep vote on dinner.
Perfect analogy ^This is just horrid
This place I live in has the gall to do this? Fucking hell Chattanooga. I thought you to be better than the neanderthals of yesteryear…
