DISGRACED IN ALABAMA

Roy Moore Suspended From Alabama Supreme Court For Anti-Gay Marriage Order

~KARMA~

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore suspended over same-sex marriage order
By Ray Sanchez, CNN

(September 30, 2016)

Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay Friday, September 30,  for the rest of his term for directing probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

redlineb

The state Court of the Judiciary, in a 50-page decision, cited Moore’s “disregard for binding federal law” as a reason for the suspension.
Moore’s administrative order to probate judges was issued in January – seven months after a landmark Supreme Court ruling legalized gay and lesbian nuptials nationwide.
Moore’s term runs through January 2019.

He is 69 and will be ineligible to run for re-election because of his age.

polusa
Friday’s ruling also cited Moore’s “history with this court,” saying it was the second time he had been brought before the judiciary court for “actions grossly inconsistent with his duties as Chief Justice.”

Sia – The Greatest …. “Three months ago today …. “!!

~~September 12, 2016~~ 

THREE MONTHS AGO TODAY

It’s been three long months.

It seems like an eternity ago.

Tributes continue to surface.

Sia has released a song Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar.

It’s powerful.

I’m sharing it today, on the 3rd month after the Orlando tragedy.

Hoping this event doesn’t get lost amid all the current events our society is continually going through.

On June 12, 2016, a heartless man, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack/hate crime inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States.

He was shot and killed by Orlando Police Department (OPD) officers after a three-hour standoff. Pulse was hosting Latin Night and most of the victims were Latino.

It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter, the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in United States history, and the deadliest terrorist attack in the United States since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

The Greatestis a song by Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar

The single was released on 6 September 2016 through Monkey Puzzle Records and RCA Records as the lead single from her upcoming eighth studio album, We Are Your Children. The song was written by Sia alongside Greg Kurstin, who produced the song with AJ Santos also known as Yektro.

The video for the single features dancer Maddie Ziegler, and was directed by Daniel Askill for Radical Media.

sia

Jessica Goodman from Entertainment Weekly found the chorus “massive and catchy.” Once the critics had picked up on the song’s connection with the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting, Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic wrote:

Making pop about a specific tragedy is necessarily a tricky job. So it’s no crime that some of the other mainstream original songs memorializing Orlando have been as rote as issue-oriented singles are often stereotyped as being. But “The Greatest” is very potent, a work of art, not charity.There’s no break here from the rest of Sia’s catalogue about pain and release in everyday life: You hear a sad voice wailing about bucking up, very stark emotional peaks and valleys, and a danceable backing of explosive drums, toy-box melodies, and reggae grooves.

Sia and Greg Kurstin may have written the song even before the massacre. But in the context of Orlando, the possible platitude of the chorus becomes gutting:

“I’m free to be the greatest/I’m alive.”

She’s pepping the listener up, but she’s also defining the value of life, marking the human potential that’s been lost.

Amazing tribute.

It’s time we put a stop to hate violence

Join us and show the world that love conquers hate

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder.

Now, the tragic killing of 49 innocent people on Latin Night at Pulse nightclub in Orlando — young lives taken solely because of who they were — has rocked our nation to its core.

49 Top Stars Gather to Record Short Film to Honor Orlando Victims

By Michael O’Connell

(June 29, 2016)

Nobody knew what to do, but everybody wanted to do something. The June 12 mass shooting that claimed 49 lives at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, unfolded more than 2,000 miles away from Los Angeles — but the grief and frustration over an increasingly familiar narrative left many people in Hollywood searching a meaningful way to respond.

The recipient of many blind offers of service was Ryan Murphy.

The producer’s phone rang frequently in the days following the attack at Pulse, with one call coming from Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin. The two quickly crafted a plan to recruit 49 altruistic celebrities to memorialize each of the Orlando victims by reading a brief eulogy of their lives, editing the clips to construct a 18-minute film that started streaming live online starting June 29.

“We want to ensure that what we do is effective,” Griffin told The Hollywood Reporter on set of production.

“It’s on all of us to know each and every one of them by name and for their legacies to, in part, spur change on important issues.”

49 Celebrities Honor 49 Victims of Orlando Tragedy in Ryan Murphy-Produced Tribute

~~Published on Jun 29, 2016~~

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder.

On June 12, forty-nine innocent people — most of them Latinx — were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who they were.

It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence.

Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims.

THE LAW OF THE LAND

A historic day which I remember very clearly.

I was sitting in my office, scrolling through Facebook when the first meme/graph related to the decision of the Supreme Court came down.

Marriage equality was the “law of the land“.

I remember thinking that this was only the beginning.

There was a lot more to get done.

This was the first step and we had many more to take.

It’s said that the longest journey starts with the first step and there we were.

Pride was all arround.

Since this momentous day, the backlash has been incredible.

As noted below many anti LGBT bills have been introduced in several states.

The culmination was the Orlando Pulse shooting which claimed the lives of 49 members of the LGBT community.

Can’t rest on our laurels, the mission continues.

#LoveWins: Celebrating One Year of Marriage Equality in America

In a historic 5-4 ruling exactly a year ago, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that bans on marriage for same-sex couples are unconstitutional, paving the way for nationwide marriage equality.

Two years prior, rulings in the historic Supreme Court cases United States v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry struck down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and brought marriage equality back to California, respectively, laying the groundwork for Obergefell v. Hodges to make marriage equality the law of the land in all 50 states.

In 2016 alone, more than 200 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced in 34 states. HRC has been on the ground fighting back against these dangerous pieces of legislation. While most have been defeated, five of those hateful bills (one in North Carolina, Tennessee and Kansas and two in Mississippi) have become law.

Tragically, those who lost their lives in the Orlando attack two weeks ago demonstrate why our battle against hatred and violence is so important to the LGBTQ community.

As we honor and celebrate this historic day, we must recommit ourselves to ending discrimination against LGBTQ people and help realize a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

All proceeds from the sale of the star-packed single will benefit the GLBT Center of Central Florida.

Video was recorded on June 15 (three days after the shooting, at Avatar Recording Stuios.

I was watching the recent Tony Awards show and was glad to hear James Corden dedicated the celebration to the victims of the Orlando shooting.

The Broadway Community spoke in solidaty with the shooting victims.

I later heard that many of the Broadway shows would perforrm together, a la “We Are The World” style.

They would record “What the world needs now is love” generated by this unique performance would go to the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida.

I already downloaded the song.

I’ve been waiting on the video.

As a proud member of the Orlando LGBT community this tragedy hit very close to home.

This action by the Broadway performers strongly touches the heart and leads to some sort of realization that we are not alone.

THANK YOU, BROADWAY!

My very dear frieind/brother Abe lead me to it just now.

Chills, chills, chills.

Here it is.

~~June 18, 2016~~ 

ANTHEM FOR OUR SORROW

We have all been reeling from the senseless killing that took place in a local gay bar in Orlando.

The word “PULSE” has acquired a new meaning.

I posted information related to this song a few days ago.

At the time, there was no official video.

I don’t think there’s one yet.

The video included below shows Melissa’ performing the song during her current tour.

I touches my heart and gives me the chills.

I have noe words … her lyrics are perfect.

RBLine

In the wake of the unthinkable tragedy in Orlando, Melissa Etheridge found herself processing her pain with a guitar and pen in hand. And out of darkness, she brought a beautiful song entitled “Pulse” into the world.

But “Pulse” isn’t just a song, it’s a message of love, an anthem of understanding and a call to forgiveness.

Melissa shared this beautiful moment with us on stage the other night, and we wanted to share her message of love with all of you. We could all use a good cry right now…and a reminder that we are all in this together.

“I think musicians … I think our job is to heal, our job is to put all those emotions in something and send it out and give it a place to where we can all…just breathe…and understand that we’re all humans and we all have a pulse.”

SAY THEIR NAMES

It’s been three days since the tragedy in Orlando.

It feels like an eternity.

It feels life is passing by in slow motion.

I thank the Human Rights Campaign for preparing the graphics included below.

As information poored in, as the investigation continues, the victim list was released.

Slowly we learned their names.

Now we see the face that goes with each name.

It’s a possibility that the number may increase since there are several critical victims in local hospitals.

Take a look.

These are human beings no different than any of us.

They all bled red.

They all had lives, dreams, hope, vitality, jobs, an full life ahead of them, family and friends.

How different are they from anyone?

Their sexuality?

Take that factor away …. what do you see?

I urge you, dare you, to look at each graphic, read each tibit of personal information.

I assure you, your heart will skip a beat.

There will always be haters.

There will always be bigots.

There will always be shameless politicians.

But Faces humanize the Names …. it hits home.
