NC4Marriage bigots on Twitter

Image
my post on the bigots on twitter is gettign under some of the bigots members of NC 4 Marriage, I have a large number of page entries on that link, many from this group SOUTHEASTERN-BAPTIST-THEOLOGICAL-SEMINARY, I have to wonder just which one it is.

I ave got a few strange emails as well, telling me that they are not bigots, and that they believe everyone has teh right to live their lives the way they want.

Well that funny since we would want the same thing,

then there is this which i think is completely funny'
rmlytle This is the first time I think I've been called a bigot. http://bit.ly/W7j2s Does this mean I've arrived? from TweetDeck
he claims to be a Ethicist, i guess even other bigots need someone to trust, "An ethicist is one whose judgment on ethics and ethical codes has come to be trusted by a specific community, and (importantly) is expressed in some way that makes it possible for others to mimic or approximate that judgement.

Statement of Bishop Burbidge and Jugis on the Marriage Amendment Bill

STATEMENT OF
BISHOP MICHAEL F. BURBIDGE, CATHOLIC BISHOP OF RALEIGH
AND
BISHOP PETER J. JUGIS, CATHOLIC BISHOP OF CHARLOTTE
ON THE
2009 NORTH CAROLINA MARRIAGE AMENDMENT BILL
February 24, 2009

My name is Bishop Peter Jugis and I am the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte, a jurisdiction that covers the western half of North Carolina. I speak today in my own name and in the name of Bishop Michael Burbidge, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Raleigh, who is with me this afternoon, in support of Senate Bill 272 which asks that an amendment to the state Constitution be placed before our citizens declaring that “the marriage between a man and a woman will be the only legal union recognized as valid in the State of North Carolina.”

There are many here who can speak to the legal, historical and social dimensions of traditional marriage. Speaking for Bishop Burbidge and myself as teachers of the Catholic faith, I wish to address the scriptural and theological basis for upholding the tr…

I have to wonder what this young lady is contemplating

The Day the Bilerico Project went off line.

That night I wonder why I couldn’t connect to the Bilerico Project, I didn’t know then what I know now about this problem. I only thought that my ISP (embarq) was having problems again, since I lose my so-called always on connection at least 20 times a week. I simply put the blame on them since two other websites and blog I like to visit always wasn’t loading.

I got the same Facebook message about the Bilerico Project status as well. I’m glad they are back up and running. Also, glad that so many offer to help them out, way to go…

Now I don’t understand why the Advocate is calling this a “internet hate crime”, Most hackers hacker to prove that they have the computer skills to outwit those who built and write security software programs. Some Hackers hack simply because they can. No were in the article did they so proof that this was crime base on hate.

Bilerico.com, the site that hosts the popular LGBTQ political blog “The Bilerico Project,” was attacked this week by a group of Eastern…

Equality NC Day of Action

Image
Yes I had planned to attend this event, I still might but for the moment I not going. After reading that the NC4Marriage is plannign to crash this event as well, I have decided not to attend not just because they will be there. It would seem that life is getting in the way once agian. Today mark the fifth day that I have awoke with a major head ache which my rx isn't working like it used to.

Once I get these headaches I tend to speak my mind without thinking at all. So I have decide to play it safe and stay home..

I hope this event is a blast and that success for Equality NC.

So go luck and have fun..

A Personal Perspective

It has been over two week since the NC4Marriage Rally in Raleigh. Alot as happen since then. The Marriage bill was introduce and so was the bulling bill.

But I want to talk about what happen at the Rally and the lack of community support for the counter protest that was there. Yes there was a counter protest of these bigots, this protest did make some of the local networks, yet not the LGBT community news network.

There were talks that we couldn't get enough folks to make an impact with a counter protest, other just want us the attend the day of action, that Equality NC is pushing. Yet a member of Equality NC showed up that the Rally to give his sound bite to the local media that was there. He did stop by and talk with the counter protesters. 

Still to date nothing about this protest in our own LGBT Newspaper. Yes I know there are bigger issues then talking about this protest. However I'm sure that The Day of Action will get a full page or two in the Next Q-notes. I'm sta…

GLAAD has lost their f-ing minds

Image
WTF, what is next, I guess "Gay" will be offensive when the right wing asssholes find a way to use it the same way by calling us "HOMOSEXUALS".

Offensive: “homosexual” (n. or adj.)
Preferred: “gay” (adj.); “gay man” or “lesbian” (n.)
I'm sorry but being call a homosexual is not offensive, that is what we and I am So I guess we can't call str8 people heterosexuals then.

(see Offensive Terminology to Avoid) Outdated clinical term considered derogatory and offensive by many gay people. The Associated Press, New York Times and Washington Post restrict usage of the term. Gay and/or lesbian accurately describe people who are attracted to people of the same sex.
Well if this is the cast then so is Heterosexual and bisexual,

I don't know what wacky weed those  folks at GLAAD is smoking lately or better yet I don't know what planet they are currenntly on, but they are fucking everything up for our community

My trip to Myrtle Beach

Image
This past weekend I attended another cheer leading event with my sister and her kids, one of whom was in this event. The event was being held at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center right off 21st, st. Very nice place, not as nice as Charlotte Convention Center, but just as big.

This event was a two day event, all teams have to perform once each day. One team only had to perform once, since they were the only team in that group.

While we were there, there was event happening at the center at the same time. Which I had to hold my tongue, you see there was this Christian Thing happening, it was the Shabbach Youth Conference, Yes there were there all these different christian groups under one roof, just enough to make one what to go raging mad, most of these people were very rude to  the cheerleaders that were where for their events.One lady actually told one that cheer leading was the work of the devil. That we would burn in hell for wearing such clothing. Really these bigot just need …

I walk alone, by Tarja

Image
Put all your angels on the edge
Keep all the roses, I’m not dead
I left a thorn under your bed
I’m never gone

Go tell the World I’m still around
I didn’t fly, I’m coming down
You are the wind, the only sound
Whisper to my heart
When hope is torn apart
And no one can save you

I walk alone
Every step I take
I walk alone
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It’s never gone
When I walk alone

Go back to sleep forevermore
Far from your fools and lock the door
They’re all around and they’ll make sure
You don’t have to see
What I turned out to be
No one can help you

I walk alone
Every step I take
I walk alone
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It’s never gone
When I walk alone

Waiting up in heaven
I was never far from you
Spinning down I felt your every move

I walk alone
Every step I take
I walk alone
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It's never gone
When I walk alone

What a statement we have here.

From Assembloge,

But our community gives to them. Why? Well, if I could be completely honest I would say that I believe it’s because we like to look good and show off and this dinner gives us the opportunity to flaunt the fact that we have that much money to spend. But there may be a few that really care about what HRC does!
— Monica Simpson is a community artist, activist & organizer in Charlotte

Well Ms Monica Simpson is there any other stupid ass remarks you would like to make.

Not every LGBT person has money to flaunt, this is a common misconception. I know it hard to believe after all those reports about our community that we have large amount of disposable income.  What a bunch of horse manure. I would said that their is a large number of LGBT who live off paycheck to paycheck.

Just to assume that we have money to flaunt is just wrong and ignorant.

I am beginning to think that our local community is spoiled and to a certain extent not interested in really doing grassroots work…
