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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Saturday Morning Coffee Break: Who We Are

Good morning readers, it's time for yet another Saturday Morning Coffee Break so grab your java, sit down and watch this great short movie.  The following movie was filmed in 2009 and released in 2010.   

For those who have never seen it, here's a short synopsis.  And yes, it does have a happy ending.
Who We Are explores the relationship between two best friends who find themselves struggling to hold onto their friendship while dealing with the feelings they have for one another. Alex (Taylor Caldwell), an openly gay high school student, tries to rebuild his relationship with his best friend Michael (Justin Fix), after revealing to Michael he has feelings for him. When Michael reluctantly decides to attend a 'Gay-Straight-Alliance' meeting Alex, he reaches a new state of understanding and level of acceptance for Alex. Michael's parents (John Patrick Kelly & Kim Reed) battle between accepting what they're religion suggests, and opening their minds to accepting people for who they are. The film captures the societal hardships many homosexuals face and a story of love without boundaries.
