watching the clouds pass by
Dedicated to these remarkable individuals. Some world matters never change, and some songs carry a message that is timeless.
Align yourself with your dreams, not anyone else's.
Peace. Love & Light.
Instead of "passing" the baton to the LGBT (and supporters) youth, I pray that the Memphis LGBT "elders" walk side by side and stand shoulder to shoulder.
Have a beautiful and safe Pride!
This is why, this ordinance is so important. Thank you for taking the time and viewing this.
Why is this such a BIG deal? Why are so many of you so small minded? You may need to come out of the closet and dust off the cob webs from 50 years plus of being stagnant.
Get out of Memphis once and awhile. There is a very BIG world with lots of bright colors, happy people and wonderment just waiting. You may be surprised, you may experience that life is more than "black and white" and that the "war is over."
Memphis is way behind the rest of the civilized world.
Most everyone that reads this, has family that is a member of the LGBT community, or will. You work side by side members of the LGBT community. When you call the fire dept, the police dept, end up in the ER, your kids teachers, your clergy, your postal delivery person, your doctor, your lawyer, your grocer, your kids coach, the person working in the gym next to you, seated next to you in a diner, heck the chef preparing your meal, your server can and probably are members of the LGBT community.
However, if you read the paper, watch the news, local or national, what you will find day after day is headlines of "hetrosexuals" committing crime after crime after crime after crime.
Husbands beating their wives, children, men raping women, clergy molesting, male doctors molesting their female patients, men and women murdering each other, drug deals, gang members, white collar crime, not paying child support or alimony, drunk driving, beating their animals, etc.
"IF" these crimes were committed by ANY member of the LGBT community YOU would hear about it, IT would be splashed ALL over the news. There would be "good old fashioned witch hunts" to prove how EVIL the LGBT community is.
The crime statistics are out there for anyone that wants to "educate" themselves. Rape alone by hetrosexual men on a woman is a staggering number, then let's throw in drunk driving, and white collar crime. ALL of these and so many more are the poison in our society. Children born out of wedlock, I'd like to see that blamed on the LGBT community! Those numbers are mind blowing and certainly the ruin of our society according to numerous churches.
With the divorce rate in the hetrosexual community, hetrosexual men and women having affairs on each other, hetrosexual men wanting their fantasy fulfilled with another woman and their wife or girlfriend, porn, nightclubs for men with strippers, for hetrosexual men that are married of course.
Do Not even get me started on "Christians" that have their own "closeted secrets" that come out and when they do, it's always a hoot to hear how they try and "explain" them away.
"IF" you demand that YOU have the right as a bigot or so called Christian, to NOT have to "hire" someone from the LGBT community, then allow us the same right. Make it legal for us NOT to hire YOU. It's ALL about Equality, It ALWAYS has been!
Who are the hetrosexuals to be giving any advice to the LGBT community? Or challenging anyones rights?
This is fabulous. Thanks to everyone! Kudos!
Thank you for the post. I will pass this on!
