This Sunday Morning is dedicated to TOLERANCE


‘Gay Marriage Potential’ Means Church Won’t Sell to Couple A couple who wanted to take a run-down Northbridge mansion off the hands of the Diocese of Worcester and turn into a banquet hall had their bid rejected, despite initially everything seemingly going well, because the Diocese didn’t like the “potentiality of gay marriages” being held on the property. While certainly unpleasant for the couple, this sudden about-turn may also have broken anti-discrimination laws.

As to how the couple came to find out about the reasons behind rejected bid, WBZ-TV reports:
Alain and his partner Jim put in an offer for $1 million for the Oakhurst Retreat and Conference Center and say the Diocese of Worcester accepted it.
But, according to Beret, as they were doing their due diligence and pursuing normal negotiations, the Diocese abruptly stopped the sale.
Beret didn’t know what happened, until he began scrolling through an email between the brokers.
He noticed a message at the bottom of the thread from Monsignor Thomas Sullivan to his realtor.
It said:
“I just went down the hall and discussed it with the bishop. Because of the potentiality of gay marriages there….we are not interested in going forward with these buyers. I think they’re shaky anyway. So, just tell them that we will not accept their revised plan and the Diocese is making new plans for the property. You find the language.” READ MORE
AS IF THERE ARE NO LAW AGAINST HOUSING DISCRIMINATION-- OOOPS--That is only the State and Federal Laws. AS IF THE CHURCH IS ABOVE THE LAW--AS IF JESUS DID NOT SAY TO RENDER UNTO CAESAR THE THINGS THAT ARE CAESAR'S

When Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy gave an interview to niche Christian outlet the Baptist Press recently, you can be pretty sure he wasn't expecting to launch a weeks-long firestorm. Well, SURPRISE! It's a firestorm for the ages.
In case you missed the original story, Cathy told the Baptist Press that "as an organization we can operate on biblical principles....We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit....We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

Another Palin Uses Profanity In Public (Sigh)Another Palin Uses Profanity In Public (Sigh)


Tripp Palin, the three-year-old grandson of Sarah and Todd and son of Bristol and Levi, can be heard saying an anti-gay slur to his aunt, Willow, on a recently-released video clip from the Lifetime reality series Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp. Definitely offensive and appalling but not, as many commented, too surprising, given that it was indeed Willow who directed an anti-gay slur to a classmate on Facebook in 2010.

Bristol and Willow can be seen gasping and the giggling after Tripp says the unnecessary word when he is told he cannot visit the swimming pool. Bristol acknowledged that she is “doing a terrible job disciplining Tripp…I know he’s going to continue to push the boundaries.”
But then, she wrote on her blog that Tripp hadn’t used that homophobic f-word but the other f-word and said he’d picked it up from friends and family, including his grandfather:
“Lifetime filmed over 12 months (on and off), and they caught a moment on film that would cause any parent to be red in the face. Tripp is always surrounded by adults – around the campfires with cousins and their friends, at the shop with my dad and his snowmachine buddies. He’s apparently picked up some language that I’d prefer he not use.”
Between and among the Palin family and other Right-Wing Extremist--THEY WILL MAKE HATE A FAMILY VALUE--NOT IF THE REST OF US HAVE ANY SAY. After all, Hate breeds Anger--Anger breeds Violence--Violence unchecked was what started led to the Holocaust of WWII infamy.
THERE ARE SO MANY ADULTS WHO HAVE MUCH TO LEARN FROM THIS CHILD.

Awesome Fifth Grader Gives Marriage Equality Speech To NYC Council


Awesome Fifth Grader Gives Marriage Equality Speech To NYC CouncilLast month I wrote about Kameron Slade, the 10-year-old fifth grader who was banned from speaking about same-sex marriage at his New York public school because his principal said the topic was “inappropriate.”
Kameron Slade won a class competition and was scheduled to deliver his speech at PS 195 in Queens. However, because the speech was to be about same-sex couples, his principal told Slade he would be removed from the contest if he did not choose a different topic. . . .
From The New York Times:
“President Barack Obama recently talked about same-sex marriage with his wife and two daughters. Some people are for same-gender marriage, while others are against it,” Kameron said. “Like President Obama, I believe that all people should have the right to marry whoever they want. Marriage is about love, support and commitment. So who are we to judge?”
Kameron was invited by the Council speaker, Christine C. Quinn, to deliver his speech, which he wrote two months ago for a student competition at Public School 195 in Rosedale, Queens. The principal, Beryl Bailey, deemed it inappropriate for the school, so Kameron was at first not allowed to deliver his speech on the topic.
After NY1 and other local news media brought attention to Kameron’s story, he became an Internet sensation and something of a symbol for social acceptance and free speech. A video of Kameron delivering his speech has been watched more than 600,000 times on YouTube. He was eventually allowed to deliver the speech at a separate assembly at his school, after the Education Department stepped in.

This Sunday Morning is especially dedicated to Tolerance Thanks to the 'Murder, She Wrote' Marathon on the Hallmark Movie Channel and the epasode that former Actress Kristy McNichol was in. After all, this television watcher has been watching her work for years--I remember the Afternoon Special--'White Dog', the former series--'Family' and even the 'Golden Girls' spin-off 'Empty Nest'.
Thank You Miss Kristy McNichol for all those years of entertainment--So as they would say on Star Trek's planet Vulcan--Continue to live long and prospering.
