Time go grab your cup of java and enjoy today's Saturday Morning Coffee Break.
Today's short film is another great piece of work from Keith Hartman. You may remember him from my blog on February 11th, titled "The License". The film was amazing - if you haven't seen it make sure you check it out.
"The Defenders" in much the same way as "The License" is too close to reality to be funny. It actually sends a highly effective message on the hypocrisy of those who would deny equal rights to men and women who want to get married, no matter who they are. You have to remember, "knee-jerk" reactions are the province of frightened and uninformed people. I believe that any heart can be softened with the right touch, and that we must counter the fear tactics being employed by proponents of those who wish to rob us of our future.
This short, three minute film proves that none of us are immune to discrimination which is often taken to an ugly extreme. We are all the same--gay, straight, bi, parents, children, brothers, sisters, and spouses. Our blood runs red, and our eyes weep tears. We are everyone. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. This is a definite must watch!
