Saturday food for thought.

In checking my usual internet sources I came across a couple of sharable videos that I shall now post here. The first is a touching message for the It Gets Better Project from Bishop Mark Hanson who is the Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  Like Anglican Bishop Sprong , whose manifesto I posted in an earlier entry, and unlike the rabid rhetoric of the religious right ( beat that alliteration!) , Hanson’ s message to kids is one of inclusion and love.

The other clip is a follow-up to the matter involving the hate-mongering disgrace to humanity called  Clint McCance – an Arkansas school board member. This is the man expressed puzzlement about the fuss over a bunch of dead f@@gots and suggesting he would wear purple only if all gay people killed themselves. While such things might be acceptable in Uganda or some other place where ignorance conspires to turn an entire nation into a hell hole, it has no place in the civilized world.  CNN’s Anderson Cooper who is the de facto patron Saint of the anti-bullying movement  took McCance to task as I posted earlier. He followed up on the matter with TV psychologist Dr. Phil.

And speaking of Uganda, and I was, here is a food-for-thought from a gay Ugandan blogger. Interesting to see how the internet has allowed the various hate incidents around the world to become interwoven into a global discussion.

More postings as the day goes on.
