"None but those who have loved can be supposed to understand the oratory of the eye, the mute eloquence of a look, or the conversational powers of the face. Love's sweetest meanings are unspoken; the full heart knows no rhetoric of words, and resorts to the pantomime of sighs and glances."

- Christian Nestell Bovee

College Students & Instructors Stage Hilarious Walk-Out During Peter LaBarbera’s Anti-Gay SeminarCollege Students & Instructors Stage Hilarious Walk-Out During Peter LaBarbera's Anti-Gay Seminar

This story will brighten your day and restore your faith in humanity.
When Sinclair Community College students and instructors heard that the leader of the anti-gay hate group “Americans for Truth About Homosexuality” was coming to speak on their Dayton, Ohio, campus, they came up with a brilliant way to protest his speech.

The target of their protest was Peter LaBarbera, better known as “Porno Pete” due to his fascination with attending gay events like the Folsom Street Fair, for ‘research’ purposes of course.
“Porno Pete” must have thought he had hit the jackpot at Sinclair Community College, because when he walked in, this is what he saw:

Moments later, students and instructors got up and walked out en masse:
Porno_Pete_After
And of course he would blame “liberal professors” for the embarrassing walk-out protest:

"The Truth About Love And Death..."

 
Those who are gone, you have. Those who departed loving you, love you still; and you love them always. They are not really gone, those dear hearts and true; they are only gone into the next room; and you will presently get up and follow them, and yonder door will close upon you, and you will be no more seen.

- William Makepeace Thackeray

Hall Of Famer: Gay Athletes Face Old Questions

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell said Wednesday that gay athletes' current fight for equality and acceptance reminds him of some of the same struggles black athletes faced in the 1960s.

Russell, who won 11 NBA championships with the Boston Celtics, said talk about whether gay athletes can be good teammates or if they might disrupt locker rooms are the same questions black athletes heard years ago, when colleges and professional leagues were struggling with the concept of integration.

NBA Hall of Famer, Bill Russell
"It seems to me, a lot of questions about gay athletes, were the same questions they used to ask about us," Russell said during a panel discussion at the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, which is hosting a summit celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.

Russell said he would have only one question about a gay teammate: Can he play?

Russell, 80, joined NFL Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown, 78, on a panel about sports and race during the three-day Civil Rights Summit. Former President Bill Clinton addressed the summit Wednesday night, and President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak Thursday.

Brown and Russell were key figures, as athletes and black leaders, during the civil rights movement. Both men said they approached civil rights as a struggle for respect for human beings based on their character and merit, not the color of their skin.

Their comments came just hours after UMass basketball player Derrick Gordon became the first openly gay player in Division I men's basketball.

The former athletes also addressed the question of whether college athletes should be able to form unions and collectively bargain with their universities. Brown said he opposed unionizing college athletes, but also said he disliked the model of the NCAA.

"It's not going to be a struggle between the NCAA and the union, that will just be (about) money ... put the value back on education," Brown said.

Russell, however, remembered fighting to form the NBA players union to get better contracts. That only worked when players threatened to sit out an all-star game and the playoffs, Russell said.

"All great fortunes are amassed with either cheap or slave labor," Russell said. "The NCAA is the one group everybody is focusing on. They have this money machine. To keep it this way, the labor force has to be free or very low wages ... All the agreements with the NBA now are based on collective bargaining."

Former President Bill Clinton spoke to the summit Wednesday night. President Barack Obama is scheduled to deliver Thursday's keynote address with former President George W. Bush closing the summit Thursday night.
