And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Movies to Watch: Crazy Stupid Love

Call me stupid, call me crazy, or just call it Crazy Stupid Love, But after watching the trailer to this movie, I think my partner and I are going to fall in love all over again - with Ryan Gosling.

In just this 2-1/2 minute clip, Ryan has managed to get naked, not once, but twice; And I'm loving every minute of it.

The movie actually seems pretty interesting; It's a comedy, romance / drama.  Some old school actors are in it, alongside Marissa Tomei and Kevin Bacon are Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, and Josh Groban's first time as an actor.  

According to Wikipedia:
Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream - he's got a good job, nice house, and great kids. Cal gets the surprise of his life when he learns his wife Emily (Julianne Moore) wants a divorce. His "perfect" life quickly unravels. In today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as Mr. Unsmooth. Spending his free evenings sulking at a local bar, Cal is taken on as a "wingman" to handsome thirty-something player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to help Cal start living his life again, Jacob opens Cal's eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style. They aren't the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cal's 13-year-old son is crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton) who harbors a crush on Cal. And despite Cal's makeover, the one thing that can't be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.

God Hates You and Me

This is one of those posts I hate to write about, because I hate to give publicity to those who enjoy hating others, but when it involves the man upstairs, it becomes my issue, when it involves the man I love, it becomes my issue, when it involves our family, our military, and so forth - IT BECOMES EVERYONE'S ISSUE.  I believe in God whole-heartedly, and truly believe that he is not as hateful as these people portray him to be.

The Westboro Baptist Church uploaded a video on Tuesday that is beyond anything I've ever seen. Not only did they feel the need to imitate the NOH8 campaign started by Adam Bouska to create their own version, they felt they needed to promote hate on every level. 

It is so disturbing to me that the children in this photo are being taught to hate from birth and to believe that God hates the majority of people.  These idiots picket the funerals of our military soldiers, celebrities, and abuse victims who have died, all in the name of God.  They spew hatred in every ounce of their sermons, and the messages they deliver affect people's lives.  I blogged about one of Fred Phelp's children in February on the abuse he had endured while living with with his father and his other siblings, it is really upsetting.

Why do I post this video? To remind us that we have crazy people out there, and that it starts with people like this.

I am truly thankful to the Lord for my parents and Ryan's parents who raised us in Christian households who showed us what love was all about; And while they dealt with problems and personal issues that arise in every family.  They had God in their hearts and it was their faith that kept them going.  I'm Gay... and I Love God.

Dogs on the Sun Strip

When I found this photo online, people were commenting on how the owner trained their dogs to lay in line like that. But every dog owner knows, dogs love to lay in the sun. Mine and Ryan's chihuahuas do it all the time; I think we may even have some photos of our dogs doing the exact same thing.
