I JUST GOT INTO THE HEADS OF THE GOP CANDIDATES AND LOOK AT THE CRAP I FOUND!

All the GOP candidates for president pledged to fight on following the gay marriage court ruling. Here is what they said BUT I've ADDED MY OWN WORDS to each actual statement in BOLD CAPS to get to the point of what they really mean...

Here’s Another (Visual) Reason to Keep the Republicans out of the White House

Here's another reason to keep the Republicans out of the White House...they would not light up the White House in the rainbow of colors! Thanks Mr. President!

At least the GOP is consistent-- they just hate everyone... except … [Read more...]

There is only one defense against the rising, worldwide, fear-filled fundamentalist tide engulfing all religions

My way of trying to encounter God within a church community may well be poison for others. We all bring our backgrounds with us. We’re all running from something. For instance, I know several people raised in the Orthodox Church who have fled to evangelical communities and found God there, or at least found a happier version of themselves. I know other people who share my sort of religious background and they can only find spiritual solace in gatherings of atheists. More power to them! We are a … [Read more...]
