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 - - - - - - - - - - -

OMG Hilarious! - Genes

The Boxing Cat

Wow, this truly takes me back to yesteryear. 

Before I became a chihuahua owner I was a cat owner, and while most people complain about cats, I genuinely loved mine. I had one cat that actually lived 9 lives, Wendy.  

Other than being run over twice, she was hit by a moving car, kicked by children, bitten by a pack of dogs, burned in a BBQ pit, shot at by thugs, succumbed to disease and still managed to live another year or so.  God Bless her!

This video is for my Wendy, Boots and Tiger.

Movies to Watch: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

It's only a 5 second clip (video below), but it's one that will creep you out nonetheless.  Rise of the Planet of the Apes has released some WETA footage of the ape Caesar from the upcoming film.  I'd have to say this is the best computer generated image I have ever seen.

Set in present day San Francisco, the film deals with the aftermath of genetic engineering experiments that lead to intelligence in apes and a war for supremacy. 
What a blockbuster summer - I'm telling you!  

The movie, which stars hottie, James Franco and Harry Potter's Tom Felton will be released across the US on August 5th.

The Civil War Turns 150 Today.

I have always loved American and World history; The Civil War especially. 

150 years ago today, the American Civil War commenced when shots were fired at Fort Sumter.  And while the war took place so long ago, the issues involving that time still linger today, and I presume it will for many hundreds of years hereafter.  The Daily Beast has a great collection of Civil War photography, including portraits of Lincoln, Grant, and Lee.

You see, we are not a nation who's been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years like China, Russia, or England; Hell, our nation only turned 234 years old last July.

In a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll released today, roughly one in four Americans said they sympathize more with the Confederacy than the Union, a figure that rises to nearly four in ten among white Southerners.
When asked the reason behind the Civil War, whether it was fought over slavery or states' rights, 52 percent of all Americas said the leaders of the Confederacy seceded to keep slavery legal in their state, but a sizeable 42 percent minority said slavery was not the main reason why those states seceded.
"The results of that question show that there are still racial, political and geographic divisions over the Civil War that still exists a century and a half later," CNN Polling Director Holland Keating said.
When broken down by political party, most Democrats said southern states seceded over slavery, independents were split and most Republicans said slavery was not the main reason that Confederate states left the Union.

Republicans were also most likely to say they admired the leaders of the southern states during the Civil War, with eight in 10 Republicans expressing admiration for the leaders in the South, virtually identical to the 79 percent of Republicans who admired the northern leaders during the Civil War.
We will have a divided nation long after we're gone, this is what will make our country one of the richest histories in the world.  Let us remember that in this nation of ours, we can agree to disagree.

And this is how life on earth is possible, make sure to share this with all your friends, and yes, even the Christian ones.

The Lost Episode of 'The Brady Bunch'

ABC was clearing out some inventory from their film vault when they came across a lost episode of 'The Brady Bunch,'  and I can see why it was lost for all these years.  The following episode is titled, "Oliver Twist," involves a gay sex worker who comes to stay with the Bradys.  And of course, everyone learns a valuable lesson in the end.
