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 - - - - - - - - - - -

If You're a Republican, This Woman is Who You Should Aspire To Be

I must have seen this video a hundred times already, at least it feels like I have..   I watch and listen to the words this honorable Republican had to say, because yes, there are honorable ones believe it or not, and it brings me to tears each and every time.  Maureen Walsh was married to the same man for 23 years and she loved him more than anything, but it was what she said to her fellow Republicans and Democrats about her life, that makes this unmistakably the "video of the year" so far.

It's taken me a while to blog about this, because my life with Ryan is so damn important to me.  My life, not yours.  I mean, what is it going to take for you zealots to realize that Jesus, The Father, and The Holy Spirit will "judge" you for the hateful, judgmental and condemning group of people that's ever existed on this planet?  Please watch this, and convince me you can be a Republican with a heart and a conscience.

People are finally starting to get it. When we share our experiences with the people we love, and they share it with the people they love and care about, all that is being passed around is kindness, caring and love. This message is louder and more powerful then the words of hate, and that is why, in the end, we will win. This video made me cry. Thank you so much for finally posting it, my love.
