Editor's note - I was contemplating not posting another piece in light of that awful terrorist act in Charleston last night. Yes it was a terrorist act and I will not rehash it to prove my point. There is no need. My prayers and condolences got out to all of the victims (the deceased and their families) and I hope we can learn something. How many times must this happen before we all get down to discussing the things which keep us down?
For those who want to know more, Buzzfeed is consistently updating about the incident.
I am only posting because I feel my news briefs are still needed, even on a day like today:
Michigan GOP Lawmaker Wants School Officials Held Criminally Liable For Teaching Students About Homosexuality - Anti-gay state legislator Gary Glenn teams up with anti-gay activist Janet Porter. Vulgarity ensues.
Pledge Pressures Republican Presidential Candidates To Reinstate Anti-Gay Discrimination - Just. try. it.
South Bend Mayor: Why Coming Out Matters - His message is important.
