Hate groups support him. Others set church fires in solidarity. But it's not terrorism?
 
The notorious hate group has applauded the Charleston massacre and encouraged others to follow Roof's example

When it comes to marriage equality in the United States, the church too often has been on the wrong side of history.

He's working from a position of love where they are about power. They'll never get it.

This is an unfortunately side effect of marriage equality, and impacts people regardless of their orientation.

CA law re: domestic partnerships changed a lot over time, to include heterosexual couples where at least one partner was over age 62. I will say that it can be a tax nightmare when you're in one legal status at state level and another at federal level.

Reassessing The Claims Made About The Bible And Homosexuality
The Rev. Delman Coates, pastor of Mount Ennon Baptist Church.
"For those who believe in the authority of Scripture, as I do, the marriage-equality debate also provides a wonderful opportunity to re-examine the biblical texts often cited as condemnations of homosexuality. Upon a careful and closer examination of these texts in their original languages, it becomes clear that these oft-quoted texts are condemnations of sexual violence, rape, abuse and exploitation, not consensual same-gender relationships. 

That, then, should cause Christians to reassess the claims made about the Bible and homosexuality, and provide the impetus for envisioning a more inclusive church, one where gays and lesbians seeking to live out their faith and be true to who they are can be welcomed in God’s house and shown God’s love."
Your Take: The ;Rev. Delman Coates says he could not stand by while some sought to justify legalized discrimination under the guise of religious belief.

All past truancy convictions will be expunged under the new law. But what will happen to students' pending fines will be up to the courts to decide, said David Slayton, executive director of the Texas Judicial Council.

I'm glad Texas is ending this, but what idiot thought this was a good idea in the first place? Another one of these "failure to succeed is a moral failing" things.

And note that it apparently took a federal investigation to get them to wake up and do something.
DALLAS (AP) -- A long-standing Texas law that has sent about 100,000 students a year to criminal court - and some to jail - for missing school is off the books, though a Justice Department investigati

Why not. Society needs to get something out of these moochers. God knows they'll just be a waste of public resources if we try to educate them.

And the quote you're alluding to always reminds me of Michael Flanders (of Flanders and Swann) and his rejoinder that in fact, "the rain in Spain falls almost invariably in the hills".

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case allowing states to require proof of citizenship for those applying to vote in federal elections, effectively upholding a lower court ruling against Kansas and Arizona.

An interesting short piece on how we pick up speech patterns, and what we mean when we say someone "sounds" gay.

No absolute answers, but an interesting look at speech attributes and how we pick them up.
This short documentary explores the reasons that some men sound stereotypically gay, whether they are or not.

Introduction
Protections for anonymous speech are vital to democratic discourse. Allowing dissenters to shield their identities frees them to express critical, minority views . . . Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . . It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the Bill of Rights, and of the First Amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation . . . at the hand of an intolerant society.
1995 Supreme Court ruling in McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Commission

Who is hurt by the "real names" policy? A summary.

I'm a middle aged, American, white guy; why is name privacy so important to me?

On Pseudonymity, Privacy and Responsibility on Google+. This covers every argument against pseudonyms that I have heard, and gives lots of examples of real people whom Google doesn't believe are worth allowing here.

Read two bloggers talking about what it's like to get a dozen or so threats of physical violence every week…from people who have found out where you live.
and what it's like when your business gets destroyed by someone spreading lies and creating fake web sites.

On privilege, a word I always used to hate.

How Google needs to fix "common name" enforcement.

It's Google's service, why do I feel I have a right to ask them to change?

How has the internet changed what it means to be "public"? (At the end of an example of the importance of anonymity in influencing scientific change.)

Why is Google hiding their "real name" requirement from new users?

I founded or cofounded seven of the ten startups I’ve been involved in. I have dealt with everything from financing (VC pitches, finding private investors, cutting deals with corporate investors, and by-the-bootstraps) to marketing and sales, public presentations, tutorials, panels and standards committees. On the technical side I have ranged from pure development, to managing development and IT groups, to providing architecture and technology solutions for developers. I believe in flat hierarchies, well-defined processes, and building fun corporate cultures.
