"Gay PDA Is Okay!"


"Love Is Brave... Live Fearlessly"




"It's True, Lovers Do Start To Look Alike..."


Amongst gay couples, it's often referred to as "A Boyfriend Twin"

"While you may be familiar with the old saying, “opposites attract,” in reality, what the heart wants is someone who resembles its owner and that resemblance increases the longer two lovebirds stay together.

University of Michigan psychologist Robert Zajonc conducted an experiment to test this phenomenon. He analyzed photographs of couples taken when they were newlyweds and photographs of the same couples taken 25 years later.

The results showed that the couples had grown to look more like each other over time. And, the happier that the couple said they were, the more likely they were to have increased in their physical similarity."

"The Truh About Hate..."


Dear American Christians, Kim Davis and your ‘martyrs’ are failing you
Kentucky clerks, pizza makers, bakers and florists aren’t victims, just volunteers

Kim Davis is on her way to martyrdom. Today the clerk from Kentucky defied every legal entity extending up through the Supreme Court and again denied marriage licenses to the same-sex couple wanting one.
She did so ‘under God’s authority’.

Her crusade could eventually land her with a year in jail for official misconduct.

The couple she has violated are forgiving. They have asked she only be penalized by fees. That won’t really work well for her agenda.

Kim is one of two clerks in Kentucky, both named Davis, that are the latest in a string of botched martyrs.

Casey Davis, the other clerk, has vowed to fight to the death – even though there is not a single person trying to kill him, who has hinted they’ll kill him, or even thought about killing him.

He is on a bike ride across the state in support of Kim Davis.

‘I cannot let my sister go to jail without my doing something to let others know about her plight,’ he states. (They are not blood related.)

Kim Davis’s quest for her ‘faith’ is at least a little more subtle. She has carried her cross up the stations of the US legal system and now seems eager to dive into her own crucifixion. I sent her a letter trying to persuade to be wary of the Liberty Counsel which is supposedly ‘supporting’ her and really profiting as they push her further down this path.

Even though the Bible does not address same sex marriage at all, and Jesus only comments on the issue of divorce, Kim Davis makes this claim: ‘I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of scripture and of Jesus himself regarding marriage.’

I have decided it is time to address, not them – been there, done that – but their followers.

Dear American Christian nation,

I am not addressing all Americans or even all Christian Americans. I am addressing those of you for which there is no separation of church and state in your mind. Those who ostracize all who you believe do not fit into your vision of a Christian nation.

We have an election going on, temporarily eclipsing even the Presidential. The bid to be seen as the biggest ‘Christian’ martyr, ready to ruin one’s life for God. It is time to scrutinize the candidates.

Every one is failing to uphold the very foundations this Christian nation is founded on.

The only requirement to be a candidate: Be extremely homophobic and seek to expel LGBTI people from anything resembling a decent, responsible life.

First we had the baker, the florist and the pizza maker.

The pizza maker’s martyrdom did not last long. They had insulted invisible people for a non-existent event. And they became instant millionaires – which disqualified them as martyrs.

The baker fell into a similar conundrum. They thought they had martyr’s pain over a $135,000 (€120,000) judgment against them, but then they got four times that amount in fundraising.

As riches filled their homophobic coffers, they cried ‘let them eat cake,’ and sent out free confections to all the people whose weddings for which they would have refused to bake.

If you can’t figure out when to bake or when not to bake, and you earned a big payoff, you’re not a martyr.

The florist’s quest for martyrdom wilted for lack of damage. She claimed loss of a vocation, home and all she held dear. The truth was a $2,000 (€1,770) fine and a finger wagging.

Those who don’t really get punished aren’t martyrs. They are drama queens.

There was also the Idaho wedding chapel guy who told everyone he was going to prison. He barely makes it on this list since nobody wanted to patronize him, no authorities questioned his action, no ordinances were violated, and no issues raised on how he was doing business.

If you have to beg to be harassed, you are not a martyr.

Then we have Kim and Casey Davis…

American Christian Nation, it is time to take a hard look at your players. They are not serving you well.

No one is being inspired to Christ due to their actions. No one is relating to some grand principle. All they see is cruelty to innocent people who want nothing more than to love who they love, and to be able to start their families with dignity.

Your martyrs are becoming objects of financial opportunism of a giant Hate Industry. This is not about following God, it is about following the money. Every year billions are used to attack other families so you can feel self-righteous.

Here is the really sad part. That money is only feeding your need to get at people you don’t know and don’t understand.

You are bankrolling this campaign of oppression that your grandchildren will come to mock and deride. They will, in years to come, wonder how anyone could have been so stupid.

It is mind-boggling to think what you could do if you focused on things Christ does care about. Like helping the sick, the unfortunate, the homeless and hurt.

It would change this from the age of the Wanna-be Martyr, to the age of Christian Miracles.

These are the choices God leaves up to you.
