“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Loving One Another - Issue No. 015

Taking A Photo For Mom

OH I LOVE THESE GUYS!  If you're a mother of two sons, then this is for you. LOL.  On the other hand, if you're a mother of a son and daughter this would also make you laugh, if they're just as goofy as these two guys.  

It was Mother's Day yesterday so I simply had to share this video with you.

The Check

It's sad, but oh-so-true... Texas is one of the MOST  STD-Infested States in the nation, and it isn't slowing down anytime soon.  The city of Houston also has the highest population of them in our state.  

Men's Health Magazine posted this chart on their online editorial and I thought I should share it.  Should you have any questions about getting tested, "The Check" at Planned Parenthood can help figure out if you should or not.  "There are no right or wrong answers" the site goes on to say.  Check it out here.

It Was Never About One Man / One Woman...

"If a man... marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights.  If he does not provide her with these three things, she is to go free, without any payment of money." Exodus, Chapter 21 (NIV)

I love how people try to re-write history in order to suit their needs.  Especially Christians.  Did people forget that it wasn't always One Man / One Woman?  Do we have to go back to the Bible "the honor code" of all Christians to show them that men had multiple wives?  Lawrence O'Donnell had the "last word" on his show last week and it was absolutely fantastic.  Check it out...
