where's the beef?

all i have to say is www.impeachbush.org

WASHINGTON, March 28 — A defiant President Bush vowed today not to negotiate with Congress about setting a date for withdrawing American troops from Iraq, and he said the American people would blame lawmakers if there is any delay in approving money for the war effort.

“Now, some of them believe that by delaying funding for our troops, they can force me to accept restrictions on our commanders that I believe would make withdrawal and defeat more likely,” Mr. Bush said. “That’s not going to happen. If Congress fails to pass a bill to fund our troops on the front lines, the American people will know who to hold responsible.”

The president, speaking to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association here a day after the Senate endorsed the withdrawal of most American troops by March 31, 2008, said that the people of Iraq had already shown their desire to run their own country by voting in free elections, that Iraqi security forces are gaining strength with American help, and that the outcome in Iraq “will affect a generation of Americans.”

Far from sounding conciliatory, Mr. Bush hurled a dismissive dart at the lawmakers as he asserted that the emergency war-spending bills approved by the House and under consideration by the Senate were loaded with special-interest items, some of them downright silly.

“There’s $3.5 million for visitors to tour the Capitol and see for themselves how Congress works,” Mr. Bush said, drawing laughs from the friendly audience. “I’m not kidding you.”

“Here’s the bottom line,” Mr. Bush went on. “The House and Senate bills have too much pork, too many conditions on our commanders and an artificial timetable for withdrawal. And I have made it clear for weeks if either version comes to my desk, I’m going to veto it.” (Mr. Bush has used his veto power only once, in 2005, to reject a measure that would have expanded federal financing for embryonic stem cell research.)

The $122 billion emergency bills do include nonmilitary spending items, some with little or no connection to national defense. But about $100 billion would go to the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns.

Shortly after the president’s speech, Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic House speaker, said Mr. Bush should “calm down with the threats.”

Democrats will try to put the onus on Mr. Bush for any delay in providing money for the military, arguing that he is the one who is holding it up by vetoing the spending measure. “We will have legislation that will give him every dollar he asks for for our troops and more, but with accountability,” Ms. Pelosi said.

The House and Senate bills have significant differences, which would have to be reconciled before a measure could be passed by the full Congress. The House bill, passed a week ago, would require the president to bring most combat troops home by September 2008. The bill being considered by the Senate, on the other hand, would set a nonbinding goal of March 31, 2008, for withdrawal.

The House bill passed, 218 to 212. A vote on the overall Senate bill is expected as early as tonight, although the March 31, 2008, withdrawal goal was endorsed in a 50-to-48 vote on Tuesday that rejected an amendment to erase the date.

Given the closeness of the votes so far, it is highly unlikely that opponents of Mr. Bush’s policies could muster the two-thirds necessary in both houses of Congress to override his veto. And Mr. Bush’s speech today was a message to Democrats that they should not assume their negotiating position is any stronger because of their narrow victories last week in the House and Tuesday in the Senate.

Mr. Bush did talk about issues of keen interest to the cattlemen, saying, for instance, that if foreign leaders “want to get the attention of the American people in a positive way, you open up your markets to U.S. beef.” But at least half his speech was devoted to Iraq and Afghanistan and the wider battle against terrorism, which he again insisted was linked to the Iraq campaign, despite his critics’ assertions to the contrary.

“The best way to protect this country is to defeat the enemy overseas, so we don’t have to face them here at home,” Mr. Bush said, to applause.

The president said the new push to secure Baghdad through reinforcements should be given a chance to succeed, not undermined by Congressional votes that might cause America’s foes to question its national will.

Mr. Bush also differed, as he has many times before, with those who say that he has falsely linked the Sept. 11 attacks to Iraq, and that the war there is a distraction from, rather than an integral part of, the fight against terrorism.

Alluding to a chilling new tactic by Iraqi insurgents, using children to lull security guards, Mr. Bush said, “That evil that uses children in a terrorist attack in Iraq is the same evil that inspired and rejoiced in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and that evil must be defeated overseas so we don’t have to face them here again.

“If we cannot muster the resolve to defeat this evil in Iraq, America will have lost its moral purpose in the world. And we will endanger our citizens, because if we leave Iraq before the job is done, the enemy will follow us here.”

Tens of Thousands March on the Pentagon and Call for Impeachment

The March on the Pentagon, March 17, 2007

The Demonstration Stikes A Nerve

Disgraced Tom Delay went on television Sunday morning and complained on Meet the Press that "we shouldn't have had what we had yesterday...in Washington, D.C." with people calling for "impeaching the commander in chief." Much as Tom Delay would probably like to see the First Amendment removed from the Bill of Rights, the stark reality that he and the White House faced was a huge outpouring of people from across the United States calling for the Impeachment of Bush, Cheney and other high officials. Feeling the heat from mass demonstrations around the country, Bush was forced to go on national television Monday and "plead for patience" from the people of the United States.

Led by a contingent of Iraq war veterans, active-duty service-members, Gold Star families, and veterans from other past and present wars, the demonstration received a large amount of media coverage. CNN featured the demonstration, which the report described as a march of tens of thousands, in its rotation Saturday and Sunday. There were hundreds of articles in US newspapers and world wide, and photographs featuring thousands of impeachment signs including, "Guilty of War Crimes, ImpeachBush.org." The major French newspaper, Le Monde, ran a significant article under the headline, "More than 50,000 People Protest Against the War in Iraq," about the March on the Pentagon and wrote that the protestors were calling for the impeachment of Bush for war crimes. The rally was broadcast live on C-span and Al-Jazeera. Ramsey Clark; Cindy Sheehan; Cynthia McKinney; Jonathan Hutto and Liam Madden, co-founders of Appeal for Redress; Iraq Veterans Against the War; Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson; constitutional rights attorney Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, and others spoke. You can view the rally by going to http://www.cspan.org/ and clicking on the March 17 anti-war rally under the video section. Ramsey Clark's speech is available on YouTube by clicking on this link.

The March on the Pentagon was not a solitary action but one of more than 1,000 protests that are taking place in the U.S. between March 17 and March 20. ImpeachBush.org played a major role in co-sponsoring the March on the Pentagon as well as the Los Angeles demonstration that drew 50,000 and the San Francisco demonstration of 40,000 that filled 15 blocks of Market Street, a six-lane avenue. Impeachment supporters have been out at rallies around the country all week.

The March on the Pentagon took place the day after a severe winter snow and sleet storm suddenly hit northeastern states that prevented many buses from traveling, 700 fights from taking off, and thousands of cars from reaching the March. Motorists were advised throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic region to stay off the road. The large turnout at the demonstration was all the more significant given the hardships people had to endure to participate in the activity. People marched to the Pentagon and stayed as long as they could braving 20 mile-an-hour winds and a windchill factor into the teens.

A great thank you is owed to the committed volunteers who endured a torrential downpour of freezing rain though Friday night to help set up the assembly and rally sites. People stayed overnight with the equipment and then began working again at 5:00 am in complete darkness. The assembly area had become a lake on March 16 and filled with mud by the time the march stepped off. The windchill in the early hours was not far above zero. At the rally site the large tents, including the Impeachment Tent, and canopies blew down. Volunteers continued to work long hours after the rally ended to take-down, pack, clean the entire area and unload trucks. The anti-war movement and impeachment movement are growing both numerically and in their organizational capabilities and the tireless work of volunteers forms the core of this success.

Pentagon Prevents People from Joining the Rally

The Pentagon and Virginia State Police, many clad in riot gear, wearing gas masks and wielding batons, blocked people coming from the subway/metro who wanted to attend the demonstration. They also blocked buses from accessing the Pentagon in contravention of the agreements reached in the permit. This required people to walk nearly two miles to get to their buses following the rally.

Many people who came to the rally after it had begun - some who had seen the huge march at a distance as it crossed over the Memorial Bridge across the roadways and wanted to then join the activity - were blocked by the Pentagon and the police from entering the rally site through a maze of misdirection, road closures and threats of arrest at multiple different locations. March organizers worked to get people in and they and their attorneys went to the site of sudden police confrontations and shutdowns, but many people were still unable to get in including the hip-hop artist Immortal Technique who was scheduled to perform.

Ramsey Clark on Impeachment and the War

As Ramsey Clark stated at the Pentagon rally, the effort to Impeach Bush has immediate and long term consequences. The Bush regime is rotting from within. Growing scandals are an indicator. The public revulsion to the endless lies about Iraq has set the stage even more so. Impeachment can and must become a reality and we can do it with your continued support.

SCOTTISH rock star Shirley Manson is leading a counter-attack against fur-wearing celebrities by posing in a shocking poster with the skinned carcass of a fox.

Clad in a stunning Stella McCartney evening gown, Manson holds up the skinned animal beside the provocative caption: "Here is the rest of your fur coat".

Wearing fur has once again become irresistible to a growing number of Britain's style icons including Naomi Campbell and UK-based Madonna.

But this week former Garbage singer Manson will retaliate by appearing in the hard-hitting adverts as the new face of the latest campaign by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta).

Shot in Los Angeles by top photographer Frank W Ockenfels, the image is intended to display the bloody reality behind glamorous fur ads and fashion spreads. The poster campaign will start in Edinburgh, Manson's home town, before rolling out to cities across Europe during 2007.

Manson, who is based in Los Angeles and currently recording her first solo album, said: "I believe very strongly in the ethical treatment of animals. A lot of my fans are very pro-animal rights and have often, when I have been wearing fake fur, said: 'Is that real?' and really gotten upset, and I have had to reassure them: 'No it's cool, it's fake, don't worry.'"

She added: "They have made me very conscious of it, and I am really grateful that they have made me pay attention."

In the past year, an increasing number of celebrities have unapologetically donned fur. Madonna wore a £35,000 coat made from the skins of 40 chinchillas in December. Naomi Campbell - who once posed for an anti-fur ad for Peta - followed in February flaunting a fur-trimmed parka on the catwalk. This month Kate Moss joined pro-fur stars wearing a 12-fox fur coat. Hollywood actress Sharon Stone has also been seen in fur.

Anita Singh of Peta said: "Shirley Manson feels very strongly about the fur industry. She wants to use her influence to tell people across the world that life on fur farms is hell.

"Millions of animals are beaten and battered on fur farms every year. We have videos of animals dying for their skin after being strangled or brutally smashed in the head. Many of them wake up while being skinned alive. The cruelty is the same, whether it's minx, fox, rabbit or bear."

Singh added: "More and more designers and celebrities are acknowledging the fact that it is cruel to wear fur and that fashion should be fun, not grisly. Because of the stigma attached to wearing fur, and widespread awareness about this cruel trade, most people are now ashamed of wearing fur."

Mary McGowne, founder of the Scottish Fashion Awards, said: "There has been an increasing and alarming trend over the past few seasons to use fur again by some designers.

"It's worrying that influential celebrities like Madonna now endorse fur as a fashion commodity. Such endorsement penetrates the public.

"It's so important that other celebrities, like Manson, support Peta's campaign. If people knew the process involved in producing a fur garment, I'm sure they would vomit."

Twenty years ago, fur-wearing women were splattered by paint in the street as widespread public awareness about the trade prompted protests against the pro-fur minority.

But in recent times Elizabeth Jagger has been spotted in a jacket with fox fur detail, Sophie Dahl has been photographed in a white mink coat with a fox fur collar, and actress Melanie Griffith has been sighted in a jacket trimmed with fox and rabbit fur.

Members of the general public are following suit. Recent figures show that British fur sales have increased by a third in two years to £500m and worldwide by some 25%. Now Harrods is selling fur again, along with high-street shop Joseph.

Frank Zilberkweit, a director of the British Fur Trade Association and owner of the long-established London furrier Hockley, said: "You just need to look at this year's London Fashion Week. Everyone is using it. It's popularity is not confined to London. Go to New York, Milan or Paris and you'll see top names using fur. Around 400 designers worldwide used fur in their latest collection.

"Peta is employing a cheap stunt by using a fox carcass. It's a cowardly and shameful attempt to try to condemn a real industry that provides employment while regulating standards in animal welfare."

Anti-fur celebrities include Pamela Anderson, Victoria Beckham and Jordan, all of whom have said they would rather go naked than wear fur. This month, former Baywatch actress and glamour girl Anderson sent fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger flowers after he vowed to go fur-free.

Several high-street fashion retailers have also made the fur-free promise. Top Shop, Harvey Nichols, Oasis and Monsoon have strict no-fur policies. Meanwhile, leading designers such as Calvin Klein and McCartney have banned fur.

i personally have no problem with people wearing furs and all that...but only if they are vintage and weren't made recently. yes the methods of manufacturing them were cruel back then but vintage furs aren't just that vintage and the process was already done long before PETA was born. that may sound stupid but if you think about it you'll get what i'm saying...i also personally think some companies make furs just to be provocative and if these peta people are worried so much about animals...they forget that humans are treated far worse by other humans...abu gharib anyone?

an uneven pace

Gay advocates demand apology from Pace
By PAULINE JELINEK, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - A gay advocacy group Tuesday demanded an apology from the Pentagon's top general for calling homosexuality immoral.
In a newspaper interview Monday, Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had likened homosexuality to adultery and said the military should not condone it by allowing gays to serve openly in the armed forces. "General Pace's comments are outrageous, insensitive and disrespectful to the 65,000 lesbian and gay troops now serving in our armed forces," the advocacy group Servicemembers Legal Defense Network said in a statement on its Web site. The group has represented some of the thousands dismissed from the military for their sexual orientation. Pace made his remarks in an interview Monday with the Chicago Tribune. He was responding to a question about the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that allows gays and lesbians to serve if they keep their sexual orientation private and don't engage in homosexual acts. Pace said he supports the policy, which became law in 1994 and prohibits commanders from asking about a person's sexual orientation. "I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts," Pace was quoted as saying in the newspaper interview. "I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way." Pace, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., and a 1967 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, said he based his views on his upbringing. "As an individual, I would not want (acceptance of gay behavior) to be our policy, just like I would not want it to be our policy that if we were to find out that so-and-so was sleeping with somebody else's wife, that we would just look the other way, which we do not. We prosecute that kind of immoral behavior," he said. The newspaper said Pace did not address concerns raised by a 2005 government audit that showed some 10,000 troops, including more than 50 specialists in Arabic, have been discharged because of the policy. Louis Vizcaino, spokesman for the gay rights group Human Rights Campaign, said Pace's comments were "insulting and offensive to the men and women ... who are serving in the military honorably." "Right now there are men and women that are in the battle lines, that are in the trenches, they're serving their country," Vizcaino said. "Their sexual orientation has nothing to do with their capability to serve in the U.S. military." "Don't ask, don't tell" was passed by Congress in 1993 after a firestorm of debate in which advocates argued that allowing homosexuals to serve openly would hurt troop morale and recruitment and undermine the cohesion of combat units. Rep. Martin Meehan, D-Mass., has introduced legislation to change the ban. Meehan introduced a similar bill in 2005 that eventually attracted 122 co-sponsors, including Republican Chris Shays of Connecticut and Independent Bernard Sanders (news, bio, voting record) of Vermont. John Shalikashvili, the retired Army general who was Joint Chiefs chairman when the policy was adopted, said in January that he has changed his mind on the issue since meeting with gay servicemen. "These conversations showed me just how much the military has changed, and that gays and lesbians can be accepted by their peers," Shalikashvili wrote in a newspaper opinion piece. He also cited a new Zogby poll, commissioned by the Michael D. Palm Center at the University of California at Santa Barbara, of 545 U.S. troops who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Three quarters said they were comfortable around gay men and lesbians; 37 percent opposed allowing gays to serve openly; 26 percent said they should be allowed, and 37 percent were unsure or neutral. Of those who said they were certain that a member of their unit was gay or lesbian, two-thirds did not believe it hurt morale, according to the poll published in December. Shalikashvili said he expected fierce debate over gays in the military this year as Congress considers President Bush's call for expanding the size of the Army, which is stretched thin by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Why do straights hate gays?
An aging 72-year-old gay man isn't hopeful about the future.


Why do you hate gay people so much?
Gays are hated. Prove me wrong. Your top general just called us immoral. Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, is in charge of an estimated 65,000 gay and lesbian troops, some fighting for our country in Iraq. A right-wing political commentator, Ann Coulter, gets away with calling a straight presidential candidate a faggot. Even Garrison Keillor, of all people, is making really tacky jokes about gay parents in his column. This, I guess, does not qualify as hate except that it is so distasteful and dumb, often a first step on the way to hate. Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama tried to duck the questions that Pace's bigotry raised, confirming what gay people know: that there is not one candidate running for public office anywhere who dares to come right out, unequivocally, and say decent, supportive things about us. Gays should not vote for any of them. There is not a candidate or major public figure who would not sell gays down the river. We have seen this time after time, even from supposedly progressive politicians such as President Clinton with his "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays in the military and his support of the hideous Defense of Marriage Act. Of course, it's possible that being shunned by gays will make politicians more popular, but at least we will have our self-respect. To vote for them is to collude with them in their utter disdain for us. Don't any of you wonder why heterosexuals treat gays so brutally year after year after year, as your people take away our manhood, our womanhood, our personhood? Why, even as we die you don't leave us alone. What we can leave our surviving lovers is taxed far more punitively than what you leave your (legal) surviving spouses. Why do you do this? My lover will be unable to afford to live in the house we have made for each other over our lifetime together. This does not happen to you. Taxation without representation is what led to the Revolutionary War. Gay people have paid all the taxes you have. But you have equality, and we don't. And there's no sign that this situation will change anytime soon. President Bush will leave a legacy of hate for us that will take many decades to cleanse. He has packed virtually every court and every civil service position in the land with people who don't like us. So, even with the most tolerant of new presidents, gays will be unable to break free from this yoke of hate. Courts rule against gays with hateful regularity. And of course the Supreme Court is not going to give us our equality, and in the end, it is from the Supreme Court that such equality must come. If all of this is not hate, I do not know what hate is. Our feeble gay movement confines most of its demands to marriage. But political candidates are not talking about — and we are not demanding that they talk about — equality. My lover and I don't want to get married just yet, but we sure want to be equal. You must know that gays get beaten up all the time, all over the world. If someone beats you up because of who you are — your race or ethnic origin — that is considered a hate crime. But in most states, gays are not included in hate crime measures, and Congress has refused to include us in a federal act. Homosexuality is a punishable crime in a zillion countries, as is any activism on behalf of it. Punishable means prison. Punishable means death. The U.S. government refused our requests that it protest after gay teenagers were hanged in Iran, but it protests many other foreign cruelties. Who cares if a faggot dies? Parts of the Episcopal Church in the U.S. are joining with the Nigerian archbishop, who believes gays should be put in prison. Episcopalians! Whoever thought we'd have to worry about Episcopalians? Well, whoever thought we'd have to worry about Florida? A young gay man was just killed in Florida because of his sexual orientation. I get reports of gays slain in our country every week. Few of them make news. Fewer are prosecuted. Do you consider it acceptable that 20,000 Christian youths make an annual pilgrimage to San Francisco to pray for gay souls? This is not free speech. This is another version of hate. It is all one world of gay-hate. It always was. Gays do not realize that the more we become visible, the more we come out of the closet, the more we are hated. Don't those of you straights who claim not to hate us have a responsibility to denounce the hate? Why is it socially acceptable to joke about "girlie men" or to discriminate against us legally with "constitutional" amendments banning gay marriage? Because we cannot marry, we can pass on only a fraction of our estates, we do not have equal parenting rights and we cannot live with a foreigner we love who does not have government permission to stay in this country. These are the equal protections that the Bill of Rights proclaims for all? Why do you hate us so much that you will not permit us to legally love? I am almost 72, and I have been hated all my life, and I don't see much change coming. I think your hate is evil. What do we do to you that is so awful? Why do you feel compelled to come after us with such frightful energy? Does this somehow make you feel safer and legitimate? What possible harm comes to you if we marry, or are taxed just like you, or are protected from assault by laws that say it is morally wrong to assault people out of hatred? The reasons always offered are religious ones, but certainly they are not based on the love all religions proclaim. And even if your objections to gays are religious, why do you have to legislate them so hatefully? Make no mistake: Forbidding gay people to love or marry is based on hate, pure and simple. You may say you don't hate us, but the people you vote for do, so what's the difference? Our own country's democratic process declares us to be unequal. Which means, in a democracy, that our enemy is you. You treat us like crumbs. You hate us. And sadly, we let you.

these are my thoughts: the important thing here is to be yourself...if you're hungry for food you find a way to get it....if you're hungry for attention...then you'll find a way to get it just the same...

no two straight men and no two gay men are alike....we're like snowflakes ehehhe

in the heterosexual community there are endless shades of gray and no black and white really...in the homosexual community it's exactly the same

if you can't accept the flaming queen who fought for his rights in the past and in turn your rights then you would and should still be in the closet and shouldn't have the right to judge someone for the way that they are and act...homophobia in the gay community is what most of the time causes homophobia in the straight community

i'm not saying every gay man should be a flaming queen or a frat boy superjock either....but we are doctors...we are lawyers...we are architects...we are stylists....we are drag queens...we are actors...we are artists....we are leathermen....we are married with children and cheat on our wives...we are in the closet and afraid to act on our feelings...we are activists...we are even priests....hehe...but the most important thing that we are is natural

i once said in the past...the only thing that can go against nature...is nature itself

more love from the christians

Furor over Baptist's gay-baby article

By DAVID CRARY, AP National Writer
March 14, 2007

The president of the leading Southern Baptist seminary has incurred sharp attacks from both the left and right by suggesting that a biological basis for homosexuality may be proven, and that prenatal treatment to reverse gay orientation would be biblically justified. The Rev. R. Albert Mohler Jr., one of the country's pre-eminent evangelical leaders, acknowledged that he irked many fellow conservatives with an article earlier this month saying scientific research "points to some level of biological causation" for homosexuality. Proof of a biological basis would challenge the belief of many conservative Christians that homosexuality — which they view as sinful — is a matter of choice that can be overcome through prayer and counseling.
However, Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., was assailed even more harshly by gay-rights supporters. They were upset by his assertion that homosexuality would remain a sin even if it were biologically based, and by his support for possible medical treatment that could switch an unborn gay baby's sexual orientation to heterosexual. "He's willing to play God," said Harry Knox, a spokesman on religious issues for the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay-rights group. "He's more than willing to let homophobia take over and be the determinant of how he responds to this issue, in spite of everything else he believes about not tinkering with the unborn." Mohler said he was aware of the invective being directed at him on gay-rights blogs, where some participants have likened him to Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor notorious for death-camp experimentation.

"I wonder if people actually read what I wrote," Mohler said in a telephone interview. "But I wrote the article intending to start a conversation, and I think I've been successful at that." The article, published March 2 on Mohler's personal Web site, carried a long but intriguing title: "Is Your Baby Gay? What If You Could Know? What If You Could Do Something About It?" Mohler began by summarizing some recent research into sexual orientation, and advising his Christian readership that they should brace for the possibility that a biological basis for homosexuality may be proven.

Mohler wrote that such proof would not alter the Bible's condemnation of homosexuality, but said the discovery would be "of great pastoral significance, allowing for a greater understanding of why certain persons struggle with these particular sexual temptations." He also referred to a recent article in the pop-culture magazine Radar, which explored the possibility that sexual orientation could be detected in unborn babies and raised the question of whether parents — even liberals who support gay rights — might be open to trying future prenatal techniques that would reverse homosexuality. Mohler said he would strongly oppose any move to encourage abortion or genetic manipulation of fetuses on grounds of sexual orientation, but he would endorse prenatal hormonal treatment — if such a technology were developed — to reverse homosexuality. He said this would no different, in moral terms, to using technology that would restore vision to a blind fetus.

"I realize this sounds very offensive to homosexuals, but it's the only way a Christian can look at it," Mohler said. "We should have no more problem with that than treating any medical problem." Mohler's argument was endorsed by a prominent Roman Catholic thinker, the Rev. Joseph Fessio, provost of Ave Maria University in Naples, Fla., and editor of Ignatius Press, Pope Benedict XVI's U.S. publisher. "Same-sex activity is considered disordered," Fessio said. "If there are ways of detecting diseases or disorders of children in the womb, and a way of treating them that respected the dignity of the child and mother, it would be a wonderful advancement of science." Such logic dismayed Jennifer Chrisler of Family Pride, a group that supports gay and lesbian families. "What bothers me is the hypocrisy," she said. "In one breath, they say the sanctity of an unborn life is unconditional, and in the next breath, it's OK to perform medical treatments on them because of their own moral convictions, not because there's anything wrong with the child."

Paul Myers, a biology professor at the University of Minnesota-Morris, wrote a detailed critique of Mohler's column, contending that there could be many genes contributing to sexual orientation and that medical attempts to alter it could be risky. "If there are such genes, they will also contribute to other aspects of social and sexual interactions," Myers wrote. "Disentangling the nuances of preference from the whole damn problem of loving people might well be impossible." Not all reaction to Mohler's article has been negative. Dr. Jack Drescher, a New York City psychiatrist critical of those who consider homosexuality a disorder, commended Mohler's openness to the prospect that it is biologically based. "This represents a major shift," Drescher said. "This is a man who actually has an open mind, who is struggling to reconcile his religious beliefs with facts that contradict it."

just saw 300!

just saw 300 the movie! it was absolutely genius! i was never really a fan of frank miller's work only because i was never exposed to it but i think i may check it out now some time soon. aside from the magical storyline and chilling tale of warriors stopping at nothing for freedom...let me be a superfaggot by saying this is the most homoerotic film hollywood has released in decades! every man in every scene was gorgeously ripped with harsh handsomeness and bulging crotches. their aggressive fighting techniques and loyalty in battle paired with their thirst for blood and victory was naturally hot as hell! the only two pretty boys in the army of 300 threw some major homosexual undertones off the screens as they joked about how one was a 'woman' and the other always faced his arse to the thespians...it almost made you wonder whether they fooled around back in sparta before eheh. it was pure queer heaven the entire movie. gerard butler as the lead playing king leonidas, a scottish born actor who also starred as the phantom of the opera a couple years ago, was the fearless leader of the pack and played his part so damn well...you fell in love with him almost immediately whether or not you were swooning over his impeccable pecs and that really sharp cut inbetween them that obviously months of hard painful work in the gym got him or his swarthy extremely good looks or his thick powerful thighs or that one little glimpse of his tight ass in the moonlight before he savagely made love to his queen. oh..speaking of queens the guy who plays xerxes does an impeccable job as the not so masculine 'god king' that is in charge of not only a brutal army but a circus of violent freaks that one by one are defeated by the spartans...and his body was sick too! here's some interesting bits about butler Close-up On: 300's Gerard Butler Stuart Pike - Posted: 3/15/07 http://media.www.bcheights.com/media/stora...r-2776366.shtml GLASGOW-BORN GERARD BUTLER made something very clear to The Heights a couple of weeks ago in an interview: his muscles in 300 are real, the result of months worth of intensive training. But his muscles aren't the only impressive thing about his performance in 300 - hell, pretty much everyone else in the film is just as ripped. What's really a breakthrough, however, is how well he holds his weight in the two hour-long slugfest; the filmmakers' version of character development is more fighting and yelling. Some critics have even compared him (favorably) to Mel Gibson in his Braveheart­ era.

the only part i don't agree with is the braveheart reference only because it probably has to do with him being scottish and that's where braveheart took place and i can't stand mel gibson these days eheh

other than all that...i definitely suggest going out to see the movie and am still surprised by all its mainstream success as it's such an awesome film. i don't usually go see hollywood mainstream films but this one seemed different and it certainly was...maybe that's a good sign for the mainstream...

change your clocks

ever wonder where the idea for daylight savings time came from? here's some of the story and after reading it you'll probably be annoyed that it was done for completely selfish reasons!

William Willett (August 10, 1856March 4, 1915), is the inventor of daylight-saving time.

Willett was born in Farnham, Surrey, in the United Kingdom, and educated at Marylebone Grammar School. After some commercial experience, he entered his father's building business, Willett Building Services. Between them they created a reputation for 'Willett built' quality houses in choice parts of London and the south, notably in Chelsea. He lived most of his life in Chislehurst, Kent, where, it is said, after riding his horse in Petts Wood near his home early one summer morning and noticing how many blinds were still down, the idea for daylight-saving time first occurred to him.

This was not the first time that the idea of adapting to daylight hours had been mooted, however. Benjamin Franklin had done so in 1784 in a light-hearted letter published in the Journal of Paris [1]. Although Franklin's facetious suggestion was simply that people should get up earlier in summer, he is usually attributed as the inventor of DST while Willett is often ignored.

Using his own financial resources, in 1907 William published a pamphlet The Waste of Daylight [2]. In it he proposed that the clocks should be advanced by 80 minutes in the summer. The evenings would then remain light for longer, increasing daylight recreation time and also saving 2.5 million pounds in lighting costs. He suggested that the clocks should be advanced by 20 minutes at a time at 2 am on successive Sundays in April and be retarded by the same amount on Sundays in September.

Through vigorous campaigning by 1908 Willett had managed to gain the support of an MP, Robert Pearce, who made several unsuccessful attempts to get it passed into law. A young Winston Churchill also promoted it for a time (see "A Silent Toast to William Willett" by Winston S. Churchill, Pictorial Weekly, 1934)[3], and the idea was examined again by a parliamentary select committee in 1909 but again nothing was done. The outbreak of the First World War made the issue more important primarily because of the need to save coal. Germany had already introduced the scheme when the bill was finally passed in Britain on May 17, 1916 and the clocks were advanced by an hour on the following Sunday, May 21 — enacted as a wartime production-boosting device under the Defence of the Realm Act. It was subsequently adopted in many other countries.

William Willett did not live to see daylight-saving become law, as he died of influenza in 1915 at the age of 58. He is commemorated in Petts Wood by a memorial sundial, set permanently to Daylight-Saving Time. The Daylight Inn in Petts Wood is also named in his honour. His house in the London Borough of Bromley is marked with a blue plaque. Willett's great-great-grandson is musician Chris Martin, of the band Coldplay. Incidentally, one of the band's most famous songs is called Clocks.

true soldiers

Soulforce Equality Ride Faces Vandalism and Intimidation in the Heartland of America!
East Bus is Defaced with Anti-gay Slurs in Iowa; Students Face Repercussions at Notre Dame.

On the opening day of Equality Ride 2007, the 50 young Riders faced grim reminders of why they are on 2 buses, headed for 32 Christian colleges with policies that silence or exclude lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students.

Last night the eastbound bus made its first stop in Sioux Center, Iowa, where Riders were harassed at their hotel. This morning they awoke to find their bus defaced by graphic anti-gay graffiti.

The Equality Ride traveled to Sioux Center to visit Dordt College, a school that counts "sexual activity with someone of the same gender" as possible grounds for "an employee's discharge or a student's dismissal." The Equality Ride's mission is to open a dialogue about the painful consequences of discrimination and the religion-based prejudice that sustains it.

The bus full of young adults, including former students of conservative Christian colleges, straight allies, and gay evangelical Christians, arrived in Sioux Center in the early evening. On the night of March 7th, three vehicles circled the hotel where the Equality Riders were staying, harassing the young adults who were staying inside. In the morning, anti-gay slurs were found written on the side of the bus, along with a hate-filled message on a piece of cardboard: "God does not love feary faggots."

Last year, the Equality Ride received a similar welcome in Cleveland, Tennessee. There community members wrote "fags-mobile" on the side of the bus. Katie Higgins, co-director of the Eastbound bus and a rider from last year commented, "This is the reality created by fear and misunderstanding. It saddens me that people have such hatred in their hearts, but this just demonstrates why we feel called to spread our message of the inherent worth and dignity of all human beings."

The Equality Riders remained undeterred in their determination to bring a message of inclusion and academic freedom to Dordt College. They visited the college to have conversations with students about the college's discriminatory policy and the harm it does to LGBT students. During the visit, Dordt's President publicly apologized for the community's behavior. As the Riders on the eastbound bus were meeting with students and administrators on the Dordt College campus, the Riders on the westbound bus were supporting gay students at Notre Dame who attempted to speak publicly about their experiences in the cafeteria of the Student Center. One Notre Dame freshman, Eddie Velasquez, was announcing further opportunities for dialogue with the Equality Riders when an administration official approached him and attempted to escort him away. Velasquez was approached by the campus police and his information was taken down; repercussions for him and the other students are currently unknown. Six of the Equality Riders were issued trespassing warnings by Notre Dame campus police. Later this evening, Carrie Call, of St. Mary's College is hosting the Equality Riders along with PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), students from St. Mary's College and Notre Dame, and gay community members of South Bend for an evening of entertainment and presentations. At 10 am on Friday, March 9, the riders will hold a second press conference at the main gate of Notre Dame (intersection of Notre Dame Ave. and Angela/Edison)

. Directly after the press conference, the riders and students will present a wreath to the Tom Dooley Statue located on campus. Tom Dooley was a gay military hero who was discharged under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. At the statue, riders will hold a vigil and partake in the St. Francis prayer and song. Many of the riders who have been issued trespassing warnings will be taking part in this ceremony. Arrests are likely.

Throughout their two-month journey, the Equality Riders will be blogging from the buses, including the posting of video clips. To read the daily blogs go to www.soulforce.org/blogs

The 2007 Equality Ride would not happen without your financial support. The buses are on the road, but we still need to raise the funds to fully pay for this action. Can you make a financial contribution to the Equality Ride and help counter the message of hate the riders received today?

donations get haggardly

Layoffs Follow Scandal at Colorado Megachurch


Published: March 6, 2007
DENVER, March 5 — In the wake of a scandal involving its founding pastor, the Rev. Ted Haggard, the New Life Church in Colorado Springs has been forced to lay off 44 of its 350 workers to offset a sharp drop in donations.

Mr. Haggard resigned as president of the 30-million-member National Association of Evangelicals in November and was removed as senior pastor of the New Life megachurch after a former male prostitute said that he had had a three-year sexual relationship with Mr. Haggard and had helped him obtain methamphetamines.

After initially denying the accusations, Mr. Haggard confessed to buying drugs from the former prostitute, Michael Jones, and admitted to what he termed “sexual immorality.” Mr. Haggard has since gone through counseling, and was declared “completely heterosexual” by a member of a panel of ministers appointed to oversee New Life.

Since the announcement of Mr. Haggard’s removal on Nov. 5, New Life’s donations have fallen to $4.9 million in the past four months, compared with $5.3 million in the same period a year earlier, said Rob Brendle, the associate pastor. The drop was previously reported in The Denver Post.

Attendance at New Life, which has an estimated 14,000 members, has declined about 15 percent, Mr. Brendle said.

“We are in a position where the reality of our financial situation is causing us to look at how we can be more efficient,” he said, “and we spent a lot of time thinking and analyzing how best to do that. These are difficult times, and these have been difficult decisions. But the floor of this church has not fallen out.”

Shortly after the scandal, the church’s board of overseers began a “moral audit” of New Life’s leaders. The audit resulted in disciplinary action against a small number of employees and the resignation of one more for “unrelated issues of sin,” said Mr. Brendle, who was among those interviewed by the board for the audit.

“Everyone’s trust was shaken,” he said. “They asked me what I know about Ted, when I knew and what I did about it. They asked me questions about the general health of my spiritual life and about personal morality and character.”

Mr. Brendle said the recent layoffs, which affected pastoral staff members and administrative assistants, among others, would help restore fiscal stability. Congregants, some of whom learned of the firings at a question-and-answer session held by a panel of church leaders during Sunday services, remained upbeat about New Life’s fortunes.

“It’s unfortunate and sad, and it hurts,” said Tim Chambers, 43, who has attended New Life for 10 years. “There are a lot of emotions that come with this, because a lot of these employees have been around a good while.

“But these individuals are getting a lot of love and support. And I think this is going to help us move forward when our new pastor comes in.”

Despite New Life’s struggles, Chris Paulene, director of member services for the National Association of Evangelicals, said other evangelical churches had not been affected by Mr. Haggard’s case.

“This is a completely isolated incident,” Mr. Paulene said. “It won’t affect the rest of the churches, at least not measurably.”

New Life, which Mr. Haggard started in his basement in 1985, is searching for his successor.

“I speak with Ted every week,” Mr. Brendle said. “He is authentically repentant and humble.”

Mr. Brendle added: “I would say that the people at New Life are confident in the process of transition that is under way and hopeful for the future. There is a pervasive sense that our best days are ahead of us.”

Anything For A Buck

Agents are one of those necessities here in Tinseltown - pariahs who fawn over you to your face then turn around and screw you. Last week it was Melissa Etheridge who got it up the you know where.

Within hours of getting an Oscar Melissa discovered her agency had just inked a deal to represent the man who trashed her on his radio show.

We're taking about rabid homophobe Michael Savage.

Savage - whose real name is Michael Alan Weiner - has been signed by Creative Artists Agency.

At the Oscars when he name was read out as the winner of best song Etheridge did what every other winner did - kiss her spouse. In Melissa's case it was Tammy Lynn Michaels.

The next day on his syndicated ultra conservative yak fest Savage told his audience watching the kiss it ''made me want to puke,'' and then called gay unions like Etheridge and Michaels which include children is a form of ''child abuse.''

As anger over the comments mounted and questions began to be asked of CAA over why it had agreed to rep Savage, the high powered agency quietly dropped him.

Question remains though: why did CAA agree take on the noted homophobe in the first place?

die another day

it's kinda weird how many times madonna has died in her films and videos...i was looking for a picture of her and came across www.cinemorgue.com which documents actors and actresses and all the instances in which their character dies....

"Dick Tracy" (1990)
[Breathless Mahoney/The Blank]: Shot twice in the chest by Al Pacino while she's wearing her "Blank" disguise. She dies in Warren Beatty's arms shortly after he unmasks her.

"Bad Girl" (1993) (music video) [Louise Oriole]: Strangled (off-screen) in her bedroom by a one-night stand. Her body is shown at the beginning and end, and the rest of the video shows the events leading up to the murder. At the end of the video, her spirit is shown sitting beside her guardian angel.

Body of Evidence
(1993) [Rebecca Carlson]: Shot twice in the stomach by Jurgen Prochnow, causing her to fall out of a window and into the water below.

Dangerous Game (1993) [Sarah Jennings]: Shot in the head by James Russo in a film-within-a-film sequence. We see James holding the gun to her head, followed by a close-up of James as we hear the shot; her body is not shown afterwards.

[Eva Peron]: Dies of cancer; her body is shown lying in a glass coffin during her funeral.

"What It Feels Like for a Girl" (2001) (music video): Commits suicide by deliberately crashing her car into a concrete pole, with an elderly woman sitting in the passenger seat.

"Die Another Day" (2002) (music video): Playing a dual role, the black-clad Madonna is shot in the chest with a speargun by the white-clad Madonna.

the brits are coming!

can't believe this was from the daily news in ny...they must have hired some new staff

The Brits are coming again

A new invasion of U.K. musicians is making big waves here


The debut CD of British singer Amy Winehouse recently hit No. 1 in her native U.K. and bagged her a Brit Award for Best Female Solo Artist.

For decades that wouldn't have meant bupkis in the States. But, given a rapidly changing climate, Winehouse is getting a very different reaction here now. Her kickoff song, "You Know I'm No Good," just became iTunes' "Single of the Week" as well as the "most added song" on American Rhythmic radio formats, while gaining "Big 10" rotation on MTV.

Luckily for Winehouse (whose full CD arrives March 13), she's coming over amid a British invasion the likes of which America hasn't experienced since the heyday of acts like Culture Club, Eurythmics and Depeche Mode in the '80s.

Paving the way for stars like Winehouse are Brits James Blunt, Corinne Bailey Rae, KT Tunstall, Celtic Woman and Snow Patrol, each of whom has sold at least 1 million records in the States in the last year. At the same time, Natasha Bedingfield moved nearly 800,000 copies of her most recent CD, and promising sales figures continue to mount for up-and-comers Lily Allen, Imogen Heap and Paolo Nutini.

At this year's Grammys, three out of five candidates for Best New Artist were British (Blunt, Rae and Heap). While they all wound up losing - to an American Idol no less (Carrie Underwood) - their sales shot up significantly in the week after the show, as much as 132% and 165% (for Rae and Blunt, respectively).

Compare those triumphs to the low point for British pop - the benighted 2001-02 season. Back then, for the first time since the Beatles led the first British invasion in 1964, not a single U.K. act appeared anywhere on Billboard's Top 200 Album list.

It was the last straw for the British, who'd already endured years in which their biggest acts - from Oasis to Blur to the Verve - enjoyed fleeting, often second-tier U.S. hits, only to bomb quickly afterward.

The Spice Girls had a bigger impact (though briefly) and things began to turn around, by inches, when Coldplay's star started ascending in '02. But it took another few years for this full wave to swell.

So what changed?

For one thing, there's been a dip in pop radio's interest in hip hop, due to flagging sales in that genre. Rap sales were down 21% in '06, opening up room for something else. "British music provides an alternative to the urban music that has dominated American radio for the last 10 to 12 years now," says Phil Patterson, who heads a group that promotes the export of U.K. acts.

At the same time, radio analyst Sean Ross says, "radio has become more pop-friendly, post-'American Idol.'" And that favors the melody-mad Brits.

For all the changes on radio, however, TV has actually provided a bigger boost to many new U.K. artists. Corinne Bailey Rae only broke through after an appearance on "Oprah." Even in its wake, her singles haven't gotten Top 40 airplay. Likewise, Snow Patrol cracked the U.S. market by getting their song "Chasing Cars" on "Grey's Anatomy" before they made headway on radio.

The new emphasis on TV promotion is part of a larger trend in which the battered music industry has been more aggressively exploring nontraditional means of hawking its wares. The same need led it to gamble on a wider range of artists - including once disfavored Brits - if only because the old rules clearly weren't working.

For years, things had spiraled in the opposite direction. "Because of the climate at radio and the live scene for British bands, American labels weren't putting money into them for touring," says Patterson. "The bands thought, 'What's the point of coming over when you'll spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and probably lose money hand over fist.' They were better off staying in Europe or going to Japan or Asia, where they could make money."

Still, it's sobering to note that, for the most part, it's a particular kind of U.K. artist that's been selling over here. Generally, it hasn't been the cutting-edge stars. The cool Arctic Monkeys may be No. 1 at home, but they barely sold 300,000 copies of their debut here. Likewise, big Brit rap stars like Lady Sovereign have been unable to make the transition to these shores. Instead, mature, adult-oriented acts like Blunt and Rae have shot to platinum status.

Ross says these artists are favored by the tilt at radio and TV toward "quality singer-songwriters" as a corrective to all those years devoted almost entirely to teen-driven hip hop.

To further goose the new Brit wave, Patterson's organization will sponsor a huge showcase at this month's major industry festival, South by Southwest, in Austin, Tex. Locally, it will back a concert at Bowery Ballroom March 13 featuring Winehouse and the Pipettes.

Will such artists help escalate the expanding redcoat wave? Given the stagnant nature of American pop, more and more U.S. fans probably hope so.

Here's a look at the 10 most promising Brit names hovering on the horizon

1. AMY WINEHOUSE Already a No. 1 star in England with her controversial, anti-sobriety hit, "Rehab," Winehouse has a barreling '60s soul mama voice that would do Etta James proud. Her marvelous debut CD, "Back to Black," appears stateside March 13.
by the way....her album is one of the best i have heard in years!!!

2. THE PIPETTES The '60s girl group sound shimmies and shakes again in the music of the Pipettes. Sporting matching dresses and spouting lyrics rife with teen melodrama, this trio refigures the Shangri-Las for a new era on their debut "We Are the Pipettes," coming this summer.

3. THE VIEW You'll find Brit-pop at its most brash on "Hats Off to the Buskers," the debut CD from the View. Just out, this 14-song disk crackles with the most youthful music from the U.K. since, well ... last year, with the Arctic Monkeys.

4. THE BASEMENT The warmth of classic Ronnie Lane breathes through the rustic, countryish ballads and ruddy rockers of the Basement. The group, who hail from Ireland, but are now based in Liverpool, release the heartbreakingly sweet "Illicit Hugs and Playground Thugs" May 8.

5. THE FIELD The Brits had a fine time with folk-rock in the '60s with bands like Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band. That autumnal vibe returns in a new form in the music of the Field. Flickering with pruned acoustic guitars and fine vocal braids, the Fields' debut, "Everything Last Winter," wafts this way May 8.

6. THE FEELING Not since 10CC or Leo Sayer (if not Supertramp) have the British produced such a high-voiced munchkin as Feeling singer Dan Gillespie. The group, whose debut, "Twelve Stops and Home," came out last week, has already earned three Top Five hits overseas with a sound that's light, bouncy and just a little bit cheesy.

7. MIKA This pretty boy singer has a powerhouse voice that mixes the range of Freddie Mercury with the R&B swank of George Michael. Look for the 23-year-old's first album, "Life in Cartoon Motion," to appear here March 27.

8. THE KOOKS An engaging foursome from Brighton, the Kooks exude a sloppy rock insouciance that has earned them comparisons to Thin Lizzy (though they actually took their name from the 1971 David Bowie song). Their shaggy dog of a CD, "Inside In Inside Out," came out last month.

9. WINTERKIDS Busy little guitar lines twitch nervously through the manic tracks of WinterKids' debut, "Memoirs," which comes out later this year. The band, who are reminiscent of the Buzzcocks at their most bustling, play Mercury Lounge on March 13.

10. JAMES MORRISON No relation to Jim, this new Morrison offers perhaps the catchiest, and slickest, example of Brit-pop-soul since Simply Red. Along with Amy Winehouse, Morrison has the best shot at becoming the next Brit to explode on this side of the Atlantic.

"How's your French these days, Aries? Because there's an old Quebecois expression that suits your current predicament. "Un steame alldressed avec une poutine et un Pepsi" Which means, 'The time has come to have everything exactly as you want it.' So quit settling for drafty rooms and insipid coffee. Demand better, if not of yourself, than at least of your junk food."
