Bible Belt leads the nation in consumption of gay porn

Seems they have a need to remain in the “closet”!! How dare they preach …… ??

The Fifth Column

I would say that perhaps not all Evangelical Christians view gay porn in the Bible Belt, but according to this article somebody’s watching quite a bit of it…


Folks in the Bible Belt watch more gay pornography than anywhere else in the nation according to new numbers released by Pornhub, one of the world’s biggest porn sites.

Pornhub reports that the majority of states with a high percentage of gay viewers is in the South. According to the numbers, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia lead the South in gay porn consumption, and the state with the highest percentage of gay porn viewers in the nation is Mississippi at 5.6%.

Alaska, Montana, North Dakota and Idaho have the lowest percentage of gay porn users, all below the 3% mark.

BuzzFeed reports Pornhub discovered that every single state in the South watches porn at a higher percentage than the average of states…

Rose and her son Joe … Always remembering him!


~~March 14, 2014~~



A beautiful spirit made the transition early morning, February 27, 2014, as a soft rain fell ever Orlando. Joe Catino, son of my friend Rose, both of them two of the sweetest, strongest and brightest souls I know, brother to Gina, beloved uncle to Leilani and to the little nephew who will never see him on this side of the Veil, but will hear earfuls of Uncle Jojo stories as he grows up, and beloved of Kawon, another beautiful and pure soul, lost his brief but ferocious battle with cancer early today.

To his very last conscious moment, he kept his sense of humor and playfulness, and reflected back on those around him the deep love that surrounded him.

Go in Beauty, Joe, just as you walked in it throughout your life.

Your smile is in my heart.
You have taught me about courage.
Your Smile teaches me about strength
And about hope.
Your courage brings me closer to my loved ones.
Your Faith makes me look at myself.
In the short time That I knew you my life changed
never to be the same again
All this from the smile that touch my heart.
never to be forgotten.

~~Top 10 Most Inspiring Lao Tzu Quotes~~

Lao Tzu was the most important spiritual Chinese sage. His name, which is also often called Laozi, literally means “Old Master” and is generally considered an honorific.

He lived in the 6th century BC, at the same time as Confucius, who was born a generation after Lao Tzu. He once sought out Lao Tzu who told him “Strip yourself of your proud airs and numerous desires, your complacent demeanor and excessive ambitions. They won’t do you any good. This is all I have to say you.”


Lao Tzu is the father of the Chinese spiritual tradition Taoism, mainly because of his text called Tao te Ching (Tao: the way of all life, te: the fit use of life by men, ching: text or classic).

It is based on the Tao (The Way), which is the creator and sustainer of all things in the Universe, and the practice of doing by nondoing (wu-wei) that enables the disciple to unite with the Tao.

Lao Tzu wrote his only book Tao Te Ching just before he walked away from the Chou empire he served. There are a lot of translations of Tao te Ching, which begins with the very first words of …

“The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.”

This first sentence of his teachings seems paradoxical. In my humble opinion it says that everything that is in the world of form (or the world of the ten thousand things, as the Chinese said) is not the formless animating source, which is not nameable. It is like the analogy of the finger pointing to the moon, which is a pointer, but not the moon itself. Whenever the Tao is named, it is labeled and made into a concept which is not the eternal Toa itself.
If you are interested, Wayne Dyer did a complete interpretation of the Tao te Ching called Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao.

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”

Really a quote to think about. How can that be in the first place: there is no rush and no hurry, but everything works out. Grass does not try to grow, it just grows. Water does not try to flow, it just flows. The only explanation is that everything is done in a naturally perfect way, without resistance andwithin the flow of life …

“Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.”

The Inside-Out approach tells us to start with the man in the mirror. Self-mastery is the basis for success, for yourself as well as with others.

“To see things in the seed, that is genius.”

To me this means nothing else as being able to form a personal vision for something. Genius for that matter, is to see the potential in something or someone, although not realized yet (“in the seed”). It is the essence offorming a vision of what might be and then going on making it real.

“When the best leader’s work is done the people say: We did it ourselves.”

A leader is not a good leader if he is so ego-driven that he is always standing in front of his team, and is letting the team feel it. The most empowering way is to inspire people so that they become able to realize their own potential.

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”

Non-attachment – even or especially to ones own self-image – is the necessity for personal change. If we are open to change and to new possibilities and perspectives, without buying into them blindly, we can grow.

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”

This is a realization that can be understood intuitively if we practice meditation and/or are able to quiet the mind of the constant chatter of thoughts.

“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”

This emphasizes that getting started is often the hardest part of the journey. Even the greatest thing is started and then continued by single little steps, one after another. It also has the very practical meaning of breaking huge projects down into small and doable tasks, that then can be executed more easily.

“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.”

In my opinion this is Lao Tzu’s expression of “intentions manifesting” or “thoughts become things”, which is also discusses widely as the secret or the law of attraction. But it is really a much more elegant way to put it 🙂

“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.”

All you need to really find yourself is to look inside. It reminds me of what Eckhart Tolle said at the beginning of The Power of Now: Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth.”

1. Senators strike a deal on renewing jobless benefits
Senate negotiators announced on Thursday that they had reached a bipartisan deal to restore emergency long-term unemployment benefits to more than two million Americans. The bill would provide benefits through May, with retroactive payments to those whose coverage lapsed in December. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said the House would consider the measure, but GOP enthusiasm for it has waned as the economy improved. [The Wall Street Journal]

GLOBAL MARCH FOR LIONS – Saturday 15 March 2014

Someone stands for them!!! Well done!

Ace Bourke's Blog

This Saturday, 15 March 2014, many people around the world will be joining the Global March For Lions to raise awareness about the trophy and canned hunting of lions in South Africa. See –

It is legal in South Africa to breed lions in captivity, hand rear them for use in the cub petting industry, then shoot them in an enclosure!  I find it inconceivable that people can actually enjoy hunting animals.

You may want to sign the AVAAZ petitionagainst South African lions being slaughtered for their bones and organs.

See here for the list of the many cities around the world participating in this Global March For Lions.

In Australia, you can march this Saturday in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. You can also find more information on Facebook for the Sydney event hereand more general formation…
