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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Movies To Watch: The Butler

I'm just loving all these Presidential / White House movies lately.  Last month Ryan and I saw Olympus Has Fallen; This summer in Channing Tatum's new movie, White House Down, we lay witness to almost every national monument being blown to bits, and finally, this fall, Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker, Cuba Cooding, Jr., Robin Williams, James Marsden, Alex Pettyfer, John Cusack, Jane Fonda and many others, star in The Butler.

I'm definitely eager to see this one, not only because of the huge cast, but for the true story of a man who served 4 American Presidents and witnessed 4 decades of American History.  Check out the trailer - it's pretty powerful.  Oscar worthy? Maybe.

WOW...I wasn't expecting that to be so good and so powerful. I haven't heard of this movie so I'm surprised. I hope they advertise it well so people come out to see it.
