 Gay Marriage or a Chick-Fil-A Sandwich...? I gotta go with Da Sam-witch

If Dan Cathy, a CHRISTIAN, believes that marriage is between a man and a woman...SO WHAT. Again, he is a Christian. According to the Christian faith he is right. All this uproar and threats of boycotting Chick-Fil-A is ridiculous and actually a waste of time. Why is there an emotionally zealous need for the gay community to FORCE others to accept them and their preferences? I certainly understand gays wanting to be seen as a heterosexual couple under employment policies, health insurance, etc. But, when it comes to a Christian belief -an attempt to change that belief- is pointless. When it comes to religion the mind in most cases is solidified. A change is is religion! Hell, Christians believe Jesus walked on water! Christianity in this particular case is IMO on the side of what has been considered natural and normal all around the world: Marriage is for a Man and Woman. Christianity and other established religions have Human Reproduction on their side. To produce a life egg and sperm has to meet. What holds the egg? A female. What holds the sperm? A Male. Yes there are other ways to get egg and sperm to meet - but what is the most effective method? What male body part contains the sperm? What female body part maintains the eggs? Come on, people! It is that simple. If my gay friends are offended...please step back. Think about what I have shared. Don't get on your liberal horse, and avoid the facts. And, PLEASE try to understand that reality and facts are not meant to 'fit' into personal emotions. If they were, much of what we debate and possibly believe will not be separate from what makes the world go around...emotions do not make the world go around.

This is The Day of The Supervillain

Remember when Boyz in the Hood premiered? How about New Jack City? Back then the thought of some madman entering a theater, and shooting up the place was a 'foreign concept'. Perhaps, a scuffle...a few foolish interruptions. Not a massacre! 

Today’s Reality…this is The Day, The New Day in America: 

A movie about an American superhero opens, people have been waiting for months for the opening day, some people who can afford to pay $300 bucks for a ticket did, the hardcore enthusiast plan for a babysitter months in advance or they alter their evening with the little ones to ensure the children are knocked out while the movie plays...they are satisfied, happy for that 2 to 3 hour moment while they take-in an empowering and thrilling story that concludes with the good guy winning. 

July 20, 2012, on This Day, we have a different story. Well, an altered ending. 

Countless people did make the preparations that I prefaced above - but the ending...the conclusion was far from a feel good sensation! So, we are here left wondering 'why'. Why did Batman's enemy (James Holmes) decide to use his sadistic intelligence and evil intent to dampen our day, destroy the day of so many...? Why? 

We don’t have an answer…

Today, is another reminder that The Day is not ours. We can eliminate our days with our decisions and we can enhance our days with our decisions. Ultimately, we are not in control...we are not safe. 

James Holmes, The Joker is smiling. Doesn’t he always?

Endgame, AIDS in Black America

This documentary is extremely well done (link above). 

I found myself connecting the dots - and piecing together the reasons for the astonishing rapid increase in positive HIV/AIDS contractions within the black community. The reasons are not new to the question, Why? – but listening, thinking, and then visualizing the puzzle helped me to conceptualize the damages that could have been prevented if only the African American community stopped pretending and eliminated the culture of silence that has caused so much harm within various aspects of The Black Existence. 

All we had to do was sound the alarm, accept the reality- and then speak up! 

A Big Mistake that blacks will pay for forever…

It is so unfortunate the black community continues to highjack -with ignorance and stupidity- the reality of this disease instead of embracing it with truth and resolve. The foolish denial, irresponsible stigma placed on the infected, and the deplorable black church response aided in the rise in infections. *Note, the black ministers comment during the scene that highlights the needle Exchange Program…He said, “You are doing what the church should be doing.” Also note the number of black churches in the area where the program functions. Sad…

Black people have so many issues that we hide while we continue to die. We should get over ourselves - and be DONE with our ridiculous self-induced barriers: religion...Christianity and false status.


Black Americans will perish while holding onto a failed faith - and while quoting biblical scripture. 

Watch the documentary! And, pass it on! Ask your pastor to show it during Sunday morning service…if he/she says ‘no’ join another church that accepts reality and deplores the message of the silence!
