From http://www.rosie.com/ Pass it on! You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President. You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy. You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed. You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed. You didn’t get mad when we...
This being human is a guest house.
This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture. Still treat each guest honorably, He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame,...
Wage peace with your breath.
Wage peace with your breath. Breathe in firemen and rubble, breathe out whole buildings and flocks of redwing blackbirds. Breathe in terrorists and breathe out sleeping children and freshly mown fields. Breathe in confusion and breathe out maple trees. Breathe in the fallen and breathe out lifelong friendships intact. Wage peace with your listening: hearing sirens, pray loud. Remember your...
“Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.” Kahlil Gibran

Texas Textbook MASSACRE: 'Ultraconservatives'... →
People wonder, judge, my tendency to become myopic about my engagement in activism. Here’s why. I find this, along with tea parties (which are supposed to be for little children in hats playing with miniature china sets), the popularity and even the mere acknowledgement of Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck and the like as legitimate voices, completely terrifying.

“You just can’t become involved part-time in these things,” Chomsky says. “It’s either serious and you’re seriously involved, or you go to a demonstration and go home and forget about it and go back to work, and nothing happens. Things only happen by really dedicated, diligent work.”

The Rev. Robert Carter, who in the early 1970s was one of the first Roman Catholic priests in the country to declare publicly that he was gay and who helped found the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, died on Feb. 22 in the Bronx. He was 82.

“The closet forces people to build a wall of lies to protect their jobs or their families. And all the while they are being eaten away inside by the fear and mistrust their lies foster.” Well stated by the author. Goodness, could you imagine if everyone just freaking came out, really out? Oh Harvey, where are you????? Same old story - If they don’t have intercourse, its not...

So, they are calling Throckmorton’s counseling approach “unorthodox” and “anti-biblical” but fail to mention that to advocate that people must change their sexual orientation if they are gay in order to follow scripture (well, their antiquated interpretations and cherry-picked scripture anyway), is in total violation of every valid medical and psychological governing...

Artist and Manifest Equality contributor IO Tillett Wright in the HuffPost - not only does she make beautiful art, she writes beautifully too. She writes “It wasn’t about being homosexual, it was about being human, and the rights that that qualification should afford everyone.” This is exactly why I am so grateful to have been part of of Manifest Equality and why I am missing it...

fuckyeahlgbt: I just got home off the bus from my high school. I am a 16 year old bisexual girl in the 11th grade, and I don’t drive yet, so I took the bus. The kids on my bus range from 6th grade to 12th, so you can imagine I get to listen to all kinds of immaturity all the time on that bus, all the time. I… This is AWESOME. You are my hero ^^ I would love to do this one day. (Everyone...
