She's such an amazing and inspiring person with a pure hearth full of love. I wish that everybody sees her kindness and love in her eyes and don't focus on her beard and style. Love you Conchita! :)

Completely false.  And yeah, doing it once might not hurt, but if you fall for something as idiotic as this, you'll probably fall for more harmful bullshit.  Plus, if you spend all your time on social networks sharing idiotic chain posts, you won't be using it to actually make friends, learn things, and enrich your life.

"Latter Days" is a 2003 movie about a Mormon missionary who is sent by his church to minister to folks in Los Angeles. The plot in the movie revolves around this very straight-laced missionary, Elder Aaron Davis (portrayed by the very handsome actor, Steve Sandvoss) and his new life in L.A. When he and three other missionaries with him settle into their apartment, they encounter their neighbor, Christian, who is gay, and who works at a nearby restaurant as a waiter. Elder Davis and Christian (played by Wes Ramsey) become friends, and it's the interaction between these two completely different people that the movie examines. I won't go any further into the story line, in case you haven't seen it, but I have to tell you that it's one of my favorite films ever...and yes, it did make me cry.

In the scene I want you to share with you, the owner of the restaurant where Christian works, Lila Montagne (played by Jacqueline Bisset) has visited a terminally-ill friend of hers in a hospital. When she leaves the hospital, she sits on a bench and begins to break down, hating to see her friend so sick.

In what I think is one of the most moving scenes in the movie, Elder Davis sees Lila and comes over and attempts to comfort this obviously-distressed woman.

He asks her, "Do you ever read the Sunday comics?"

Lila replies, "I beg your pardon?"

Elder Davis continues, "The comic page? When I was a little kid, I used to put my face right up to them, you know. And I was just amazed because it was just this mass of dots. I think life is like that sometimes. But I like to think that from God's prospective, life, everything, even this ["this" refers to the situation with Lila's friend], makes sense. It's not just dots. Instead we're all...we're all...connected, and it's beautiful and it's funny and it's good. From this close we, we can't expect it to make sense, right now."

Wow! Aaron said exactly what I have long believed: we human beings are connected to each other-for good or bad-even if we're not in love with that fact, and even if we conduct our lives as if we're not. And it's easy to lose sight of "the bigger picture" when you're busy just trying to live your everyday life. It's tempting to think that life really is just a mass of unrelated dots on the comics page of life. Truth is, most of us don't often have the privilege of being able to stand back for a moment, take a breath, and perhaps gain a new perspective on our lives. Aaron's right again, there is much in life that does not make sense to us, and probably never will; it's just part and parcel of the human condition, I suppose. We mere mortals seem to have an endless supply of questions, but often, few answers-at least too few satisfying answers. 'Twas ever thus.

No one ever said life on the comics page would be easy.

Living is just not for wimps.

Copied and pasted directly from The Huffington Post (no need to add anything except the fact that I love seeing political hacks speechless when nobody else has a problem but them. GLORIOUS!)

(Oh, yeah, having seen this video footage, I feel the overwhelming need to explain that I NEVER watch "Fox and Friends"! NEVER, NEVER, NEVER! Mostly because, well, they're simply not my friends. I ONLY know about this because The Huffington Post did the dirty work and watched it first! :-)

" Fox News Tries To Scare Its Viewers And Fails Miserably
Katherine Fung 07/10/2014
"Fox and Friends" is not happy about Illinois State University's decision to designate some of its bathrooms gender-neutral, but it just couldn't get its viewers to share the sentiment on Thursday.

The university is re-labeling some of its single-stall "family" bathrooms to be "gender-neutral."

Host Steve Doocy ventured outside of the Fox News studio with a mock-up of what the new signs for the bathrooms will look like and try to prove the point in the chyron: "Are New Gender Signs Just Too Confusing?"

But the answer, according to fans gathered on the sidewalk, was a resounding no. Doocy asked a kid what the sign looked like it was for, and the kid replied, "Maybe a family restroom."

Doocy later asked if "all-gender" bathrooms made sense. "Restrooms for both genders," another fan said, nodding her head. The Fox News host appeared momentarily stumped, and then awkwardly claimed that the figure in the middle "has thrown some people." The group, however, wasn't thrown at all.

Back in the studio, there was more awkward silence as co-host Brian Kilmeade responded to the fans' reactions."

Be prepared to laugh out loud as these jokers get burned (no offense to jokers!). I sure did! :-)

I betcha we'll see a few more clerks doing this now... Colorado clerk can keep issuing gay marriage licenses as courts consider state's ban. The judge said same-sex marriage is still technically illegal in Colorado but that Hall’s behavior was not harming anyone. ... Hartman also noted that every judge – including one in Colorado the previous afternoon – in the past year has ruled that gay marriage bans are unconstitutional and that Colorado’s prohibition is “hanging by a thread.” http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2014/07/judge-boulder-clerk-can-continue-issuing-marriage-licenses-to-same-sex-couples/
DENVER -- A Boulder County clerk who has been issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in defiance of Colorado's gay-marriage ban has been cleared to continue. Boulder County Judge Andrew Hartman ruled Thursday that county clerk Hillary Hall can ignore a federal stay on a ruling from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ...

If the brothers and those other “Christian” bigots who are agreeing with their rhetoric feel that strongly then they should martyr themselves, just go somewhere and die. They’re sounding just like Al Qaeda and Taliban extremists, the ones who are willing to die for the causes. HGTV made the right decision when they nixed the Benham Brothers Show. They have stepped up their Anti-Gay Rhetoric since the canceling of their show. http://instinctmagazine.com/post/anti-gay-hgtv-twins-say-christians-need-be-willing-die-fight-against-lgbt-rights

I often wonder what it is that is so wrong in bigots lives for them to be so consumed with hatred.

Several LGBT groups have withdrawn support of the current version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) has announced its opposition to the current version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). The Senate-passed version contains a religious exemption that’s broadly worded and unprecedented in federal anti-discrimination legislation. The NGLTF cites that as well as the recent Hobby Lobby decision by the Supreme Court as motivation for its opposition:
 
    “Frankly, it is becoming harder and harder for me, for us, to tolerate our own moral and political inconsistencies by protesting the Hobby Lobby decision, then advocating for the current ENDA with its broad religious exemption, and then insisting that the president not include a broad exemption in the upcoming executive order protecting LGBT people working for federal contractors. How can we demand that a woman have coverage for reproductive healthcare at a company but support a bill that allows a lesbian cafeteria worker in the religiously affiliated hospital next door to be fired from her job?
 
    In the last year alone, we have seen a wave of attempted and successful efforts at imposing religious exemptions on issues of reproductive health and LGBT equality on the local, state, and federal level. And it is crystal clear in the week following the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision that the momentum is building on religious exemptions. Not 48 hours after the decision, Pastor Rick Warren joined other faith leaders in a letter to the president asking that he include a broad religious exemption in the contractor executive order. We cannot be complicit in writing such exemptions into federal law.
 
    There is a better alternative: federal nondiscrimination legislation that contains a reasonable religious accommodation. LGBT people should have the same protections as those contained in Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Legal equality is legal equality.” Read the full report at http://equalityontrial.com/2014/07/09/equality-news-round-enda-edition/
