Recommended Posts

It seems some churches only goal is The gays. not helping others not Not judging others not helping the poor or people who have problems.

“As I am sure you are aware, God’s church, his written word, and its values and principles have come under a constant and aggressive attack from the homosexual and lesbian community,â€

Louisiana church has told a local Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) chapter that it can no longer hold meetings at the facility in an attempt to prevent LGBT people from getting married.

In a letter to the Keithville AA group, Westwood Baptist Church advised that the organization would need to find a new place to meet starting on Oct. 1, 2014, according to KSLA.

“As I am sure you are aware, God’s church, his written word, and its values and principles have come under a constant and aggressive attack from the homosexual and lesbian community,†the letter explains. “Churches and Christian businesses alike, across our nation, are being forced, by our legal system, to accommodate these groups in the use of their buildings/facilities to perform marriage ceremonies, receptions, etc.â€

The church argued that a court decision said that it must “also accommodate the homosexual and lesbian community†if it allowed other groups to use the building.

People Acting for Change and Equality political director Adrienne Critcher pointed out to KSLA that no one was trying to force churches to perform same-sex weddings, which are not legal in Louisiana.

“Even if we have legalized gay marriage throughout the country no church will be forced to marry gay people if they don’t want to,†Critcher said.

absolutely ridiculous. i guess that christian charity and goodwill goes out the window whenever the slightest possibility of gay or lesbian rights or marriage come into play in the most remote way.

It's not like "the Gays" wear a sign saying "I'm Gay"... why on earth do churches feel they have a right to turn anyone away? only God is supposed to judge the person who arrives at the Pearly Gates, not us. We're supposed to Help People.... hello? What will AA do now? Probably cut off a set of meetings because they will have to rent a public space and they won't be able to afford that.

I rolled my eyes when the Boy Scouts were told they had to find a place to meet other than our (RC) school's lunchroom, and they had to get their stuff stored elsewhere as well.. Why? Because the ebil Boy Scouts wanted to have a local politician speak at the Eagle Ceremony (held OFF parish property) held for her cousin.. the ebil politician had voted for a bill that had a rider on it with something related to abortion.. the original bill was a good one, and the abortion issue rode on its coattails. No-win situation, there, and the politician, who'd gone to bat for the RC community many times at the state capital, was ousted from any more Catholic support. Shoot yourself in the foot whydontcha. Is there no sense anywhere? Just these hot button issues?

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
