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.”

HATRED PERSONIFIED

As I was looking through my Facebook Timeline a while ago, I found this “tiny morsel” of information that made me cringe.

I thought we had enough of that woman and here she pops in again.

Why?

Because of the lawyer that was with her through her “awful ordeal”.

Come to find out that he’s the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, the conservative group behind Ms. Davis defense.

Why don’t I find this hard to believe?

First thought I have when SCOTUS ruled in favor of marriage equality:

This is just the beginning.

…. and here it is!

It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

GoldSwirl

When hatred takes human form, it looks a lot like the founder and chairman of the Liberty Counsel Matthew Staver

You may recognize him as the lawyer for the infamous Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis who refused to do her job because her hatred was too big a burden to bear so she chose prison instead.

She just couldn’t stand the thought of two loving people of the same gender getting married, so she showed us just a taste of what was about come in terms of hating the LGBT community.

And she had Staver as her equally bigoted lawyer.

GoldSwirlALLGoldSwirl

What’s come since Davis’ hissy fit has been a string of anti-LGBT bills disguised as “religious freedom” laws, and Staver is the man behind the hate nationwide. CBS News investigated and came to find out that it’s been Staver leading this zealous crusade.

From laws prohibiting transgender individuals from using the proper bathroom to allowing businesses the right to refuse service to the LGBT community, Staver has been there through it all.

Yet, he cleverly words his hatred as such:

 “It is only about being free to pursue your faith.

We have no interest in discriminating against anyone.”

No, Staver, the First Amendment already guarantees your freedom to pursue your faith, what you’re doing is helping states all across the nation write laws to specifically discriminate against LGBT individuals.

You are making it legal to deny service or evict tenants based on sexual orientation. This legislated hate is taking away the freedom of LGBT citizens to grant the freedom to legally discriminate to religious zealots afraid gay money has gay cooties.

And God forbid a transgender person needs to pee.

BibleGay

Oh, and get this, Staver doesn’t think businesses are really going to pull out of the states that have enacted these laws. He’s supposedly calling their “bluff.” He’s about to be in for a rude awakening, because being on the wrong side of history has never boded well for any bigot. His hatred for the gay community is bizarre. If he wants freedom, live and let live. It really can be that easy.

CBS News investigation finds Kim Davis’ lawyer behind anti-LGBT bills in 20 states

By: David Edwards

After governors in North Carolina and Mississippi recently signed laws limiting the rights of LGBT people, CBS News began investigating why so many anti-LGBT bills were cropping up in state legislatures around the country.

The network found that the conservative group Liberty Counsel had placed lawyers in all 50 states to draft legislation and advise lawmakers on how to rein in the rights of LGBT people in response to a Supreme Court ruling which legalized same-sex marriage in 2015.

CBS determined that bills tied to Liberty Counsel have been filed in at least 20 states so far.

“Well I certainly want to push back against that [same-sex marriage] ruling,” Liberty Counsel founder Matt Staver told CBS News. “It was a wrong ruling. It has no basis in the constitution.”

“The Supreme Court in the 5-4 opinion on marriage in 2015 lit the house on fire,” he added. “All we’re trying to do is control the fire at this point in time.”

Staver insisted that the bills were “about being free to pursue your faith,” and that his group had “no interest in discriminating against anyone.”

He also asserted that companies did not have the guts to go through with boycotts of states that enacted pro-discrimination legislation.

“They’re not gonna follow through,” he declared. “It’s a bluff. They’re not leaving.”

~~Group behind states’ religious freedom laws speaks out~~

~~Published on Apr 13, 2016~~

Lawmakers in several states are passing bills to protect those who cite religious beliefs for refusing to serve or employ people in the LGBT community. These bills began to crop up in state legislatures soon after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage last year. As Dean Reynolds reports, the same group is behind most of the new legislation.

Bruce Springsteen …. Gotta love “The Boss” … !!

THE BOSS SPEAKS

This is old news by now.

I needed to recognize Bruce Springsteen’s actions and comments as they are very close to my heart.

I do not live in North Carolina. I live in Florida.

I am a member of the LGBTQ community and, as such, this law and others that may be coming down the pike, are very worrisome.

Huge steps were made this past year to assure equality of all LGBTQ citizens.

It all stems from the Obergefell v. Hodges SCOTUS decision.

Those pushing laws against a decision already made by the highest court of the land only show how small and petty their hearts are.

They claim “religious freedom”.

In my book, religion dictates kindness and love for all.

This law does the total opposite and shows the real “faces” of those behind such underhanded, scheming actions. Keep in mind that these are government officials elected to abide by the rule of law and the will of the people who got then there.

Thank you, Mr. Springsteen.

A Statement From Bruce Springsteen On North Carolina

APRIL 8, 2016

As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use.

Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden.

To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments.

Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th.

Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.

To start the day … “One Year Anniversary: Paper”!!


12thMonth

~~January 6, 2016~~ 

A YEAR AGO TODAY

I can’t even begin to imagine and recall the feelings of this significant day for both of us.

Some of you know that we first met in college, back in 1969!

New feelings were discovered. Plans were made. Life got in the way … it wasn’t meant to be then.

We kept in “sporadic” touch.

In 1996, life reunited us again.

Everything that “was” ceased to be … and what developed in our young years became a force to be reckoned with.

We have been together since.

Never in our lifetime did we think we’d be able to see our union recognized as a “legal” one.

Today, we celebrate our first year as a “married couple” Nothing has really changed. We live the same way we lived before January 6, 2015.

What a ride has it been!

Love is What Anniversaries are All About

Love is being happy for the other person

When that other person is happy,

Being sad for the other person

When that person is sad

Being together in good times

And being together in bad times.

Love is the source of strength.

Love is being honest with yourself at all times

Being honest with the other person at all times

Telling, listening, respecting the truth

And never pretending

Love is the source of reality.

Love is understanding so complete that

You feel as if you are a part of the other person

Accepting that person just the way she is

And not trying to change each other

To be something else.

Love is the source of unity.

Love is the freedom to pursue your own desires

While sharing your experiences with the other person

The growth of one individual with the growth

Of another individual.

Love is the source of success.

Love is the excitement of planning things together

And the excitement of doing things together

Love is the source of the future.

Love is the fury of the storm

The calm of the rainbow

Love is the source of passion.

Love is giving and taking in a daily situation

Being patient with each other’s needs and desires

Love is the source of sharing.

Love is knowing that the other person

Will always be with you

Regardless of what happens

Missing the other person when she is away

But remaining near in heart at all times

Love is the source of security.

Love is the source of life.

Happy Anniversary

The day is getting closer …. One year “Legally Married”!!


An6

~~January 3, 2016~~ 

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY

The date was January 1, 2015

We met in college in 1969.

From the start, we both knew, there was a spark.

We were then too young and naive.

We didn’t have a name for our feelings for each other then.

As life went on, it separated us and we each went along separate ways.

I like to say, like John Lennon, “life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans“.

As each experienced the next 24 years separately, we became adults and our personalities were finally completely formed.

It was by fate, and definitely written in both our “life’s books”, when we definitely reunited in 1996.

We have been together since. 

As Florida made marriage equality the law of the state, we were married legally on January 6, 2015.

You can imagine how we felt knowing that ALL would recognize our commitment to each other.

All our years together, all our joint experiences, all the rights as a married couple would be recognized as equal to the “establishment marriage”.

Even more happiness in June 2015.

Marriage Equality … the law of the land!! 

It will soon be one full year.

We still love each other as we did when we met, we have history together, we are bound for life.

Our commitment is unwavering.

Together .. till death do us part!

HATE IN PEOPLE’S HEARTS

I’ve heard this one before.

There are so many examples.

I can think of a few and I know that there are so many more.

Yellow star on the Jews

Pink star on the homosexuals in Nazi Germany

Remove signs of “colored people’s entrance”

Sitting in the front of the bus

Marriage equality is the law of the land

Rainbow flags abound

Removing the Confederate flag in South Carolina … remember Bree Newsome?

The outward symbols can be very easily removed.

It’s the thoughts and the feelings behind these that remain. There’s still a lot of work to do.

If you want, add the ones you know that apply.

June 26, 2015 in Washington, DC.

~~July 24, 2015~~ 

CELEBRATING VICTORY

It was almost one month ago today, when the Supreme Court of the United states was deliberating on the constitutionality of several issues.

The momentum for marriage equality had been steadily building and the people where waiting, rallying outside their building .. wondering about the outcome.

I wasn’t there but I was surely keeping up with the news. Suddenly, there is was ….all over social media!

Supreme Court Ruling Makes Same-Sex Marriage a Right Nationwide

I never thought I would see this in my lifetime.

It was beyond happiness, it was beyond belief.

It had become the “law of the land“.

No more waiting.

Marriage equality was legal nationwide.

This is only the first step after many efforts. I’m fully aware that there’s a lot still pending to be done and achieved. Yet, this moment in time, will forever be in my heart, mind and soul. This moment is ours.

We’ve only just begun!

Freedom to Marry is an organization which campaigns for the right of same-sex couples to marry in the United States. Freedom to Marry was founded in New York City in 2003 by Evan Wolfson, whom many consider to be the father of the modern marriage movement.

According to its “Roadmap to Victory”, Freedom to Marry is working “to end the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage” by winning same-sex marriage for more states, growing the national majority support for same-sex marriage, and repealing the Defense of Marriage Act a law it sees as discriminatory.

My current view on Caitlyn Jenner …. and the ESPYS Award!!

~~July 17, 2015~~ 

Caitlyn Jenner Gives Poignant Speech at ESPYS

Jenner was this year’s recipient of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, named for the African American tennis star who died of AIDS in 1993.

BLine

Trans People Deserve Your Respect

Caitlyn Jenner accepted her first formal award on Wednesday since announcing her transition, receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYS and giving an emotional speech in the process.

“The real truth is that before just a few months ago, I had never met anybody else who was trans,” she said. “Now as you saw, I dealt with my situation on my own, in private. It’s been eye-opening, inspiring, but also frightening.”

She went on to talk about trans youth, mentioning late trans teenagers Mercedes Williamson and Sam Taub.

“They’re getting bullied,” Jenner said of trans youth. “They’re getting beaten up. They’re getting murdered.

And they’re committing suicide.”

BLine

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS ISSUE

I must truthfully say that I didn’t think that I would be looking for information, reviewing and listening to Jenner’s acceptance speech at the ESPY’s.

I remember, back in 1976, when Jenner was the darling of the media because of his incredible feat in the Olympics and winning the Olympic decathlon men’s event champion.

Throughout all of her journey, even before she announced what she intended to, I never followed her as an American television personality. I did watch the Diane Sawyer interview where Jenner described what he had gone through all his life, her “confusion, her living up to someone she wasn’t’.

It all seemed so phony and fake to me. I wasn’t thrilled like some seemed to be. I wondered what she could bring to the table in the current situation of the trans community, the “T” in LGBTQ. I even thought this may be damaging to the advances that have been made in the acceptance of the LGBTQ community and the monumental decision of SCOTUS in making marriage equality the “law of the land”.

Some of you may be confused, since some may know that I am a proud member of the LGBTQ community, recently married and now recognized as married nationwide, that I’m not offering unconditional support to Jenner.

I watched Caitlyn Jenner’s acceptance speech at the ESPYS last night.  I must say that I’m still somewhat “leery” of her intentions but I must also say that her acceptance speech was powerful, intense, heartwarming and very touching. She’s setting quite an agenda for herself.

For the sake of the LGBTQ community and for Caitlyn Jenner’s sake, I do hope that this is all real, not any kind of publicity stunt or attention seeking action. I don’t think that anyone would go through all of the jeering, abuse, anguish, medical and surgical treatment that she has gone through for publicity’s sake.

I truly got a better glimpse of her and I hope and wish only the best for her at this stage of her life.
