“Sends the wrong message to kids that you can break the rules.”Uh, Ok. How about: “It Sends a Great Message! Thanks, Guys!” ?
“It sends a great message to kids in caring about Women’s Health Issues!”

Would the Christian, “morally” conservative community please tell us what to say to all human beings, who are intent upon denying any and all Women and Girls the right to live their lives, free from the constant threat of sexual assault?
We are desperately seeking an answer, so we will know precisely what to say to YOU – you, who are intent upon denying any and all Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and Transgendered human beings the right to live their lives, free from the constant threat of sexual persecution.
How many excuses can human beings, within even the most “civil” of societies, come up with in order to justify violating the humanity of certain others?
How many ways can human beings in any society incite, commit and condone acts of hate, violence and abuse against individuals of a particular group or class within those societies, by minimizing, diminishing and disregarding their right to total equality?
How many ways? Just ask Women’s Rights Activists and the GLBT Community. They can tell you the answer, from decades of fighting for real equality and protection under Human Rights’ laws.
Basically, what they are really up against is all of the excuses their representatives throw at them for not only being the sexist, bigoted, discriminatory human beings that most of them are, but for being so protective of their like-minded supporters.
One would have to be intentionally blind and deaf not to recognize that there are as many excuses for denying, delaying and denigrating our human right to total equality, as there are political promises that, ‘Real change is on the way, if you will only vote for me and/or our party because, our Equal Rights’ Values and Voting Records speak for themselves.’
And so it is. As one’s humanity is the only qualifier for one’s right to Equal Human Rights – this is exactly why the humanity of both Women and GLBT is still getting all of the good ole’ fashion bigoted and hate-filled beatings.
Apparently, according to all religions, “GOD” commanded that Women and Homosexuals were never to have any rights, much less be equal to heterosexual men whether anyone believes in HIM or not!
And, that Old – Blind, Bigoted, Sexist-Misogynistic – Hate-Filled-Religion, just won’t die!
What’s the worst that could happen if Women and the GLBT actually end up achieving total equality? The way things keep going, we could all end up dead?Poll: Americans say religious messages fuel negative views of gays
By Nicole Neroulias | Religious News Service | Oct 21, 2010
(RNS) Most Americans believe messages about homosexuality coming from religious institutions contribute to negative views of gays and lesbians, and higher rates of suicide among gay youths, a new poll reports.
“There is a growing awareness and understanding about the harm that is caused when society places a religious or moral stamp of disapproval on the lives of gay and lesbian individuals, especially youths.” Read the article here…

Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said it was “unacceptable that a pro-choice president has put his imprimatur on a highly restrictive and unjust anti-choice measure.”
“It is tragic that, under a pro-choice administration and a Democratic majority in Congress, harmful anti-choice policy will be the price American women will pay for health care reform,” Northup said in comments echoed by other abortion-rights groups. Read the Article here…

Or, certainly not, when it comes to a GOP Candidate, Joe Miller, (who’s backed by the Tea Party) putting an Anti-Gay adviser on his payroll? Nah.Joe Miller’s Extreme Anti-Gay Adviser
By David Corn | Fri Oct. 22, 2010 3:00 AM PDT
One of the consultants on the the tea party-backed candidate’s payroll heads a group that’s so anti-gay it blasted Rush Limbaugh for hobnobbing with Elton John.
Joe Miller, the Sarah Palin-endorsed, tea party-backed GOP Senate candidate in Alaska, hasn’t campaigned much on his opposition to gay rights. In a July letter to Alaskan voters, he noted that “the traditional Christian view” is that “homosexuality is a sin, and therefore immoral.” He added, though, that the “central issue of the campaign” has been the federal debt and government spending. But Miller did place on his campaign payroll a self-described “Christian educator” who leads a religious right organization so virulently anti-gay that it denounced Rush Limbaugh for hobnobbing with Elton John.” Read the Article here…

By: LISA LEFF | 10/20/10 10:46 PM |
“SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court on Wednesday temporarily granted the U.S. government’s request for a freeze on a judge’s order requiring the military to allow openly gay troops.” Read the Article here…
You, the moral religious “We’re Right” seem to so easily uphold the rights of all “sinners,” whether they have confessed to all of their sins or not. Have you ever even questioned the “right” of a woman-beater, rapist, or “backsliding” divorced pastor or congregate to marry?
You even accept the rights of non-religious men and women to be married – or not – without denying either of them the legal rights and benefits of marriage, even under “common law”.
You do not deny them their right to have their rights. Why? Because they have those rights, despite how “immoral” or “unnatural” you or others believe them to be living their lives.
Yet, there are millions of human beings who are devout followers of religious faith, as there are those who are not followers, who do not have those same rights. Why? Not because they are different in every aspect from other human beings, making them unqualified for the rights of all other human beings. They are denied equal rights under law for one reason alone; either the object of their human capacity for love, devotion and commitment is another human being of the same gender or, they have an innate gender identity, different than the biological identity of which they were born.
Why must they remind you – time and time again – of what they are and who you are not? They are human beings deserved of the same human rights afforded you. You are not God, nor were you commanded to play God. Are you the original architects of the human genome, defining the natural from the “unnatural”? Not hardly.
Your judgments upon which lives shall be valued and equally protected as yours, and which lives shall be denied rights equal to yours and persecuted unto death, are both deplorable and inhumane.
This, coming from those who demand the freedom, rights and protection under law to profess and even publicly identify themselves as both “a Bride of Christ” and the husband or wife of a Harry or a Mary?
It is unfathomable that those possessing such a belief have the audacity to fight against the equal freedoms, rights and protection under law of the marriage between a Larry and Harry or a Mary and Sherry!
So, on behalf of those that refuse to uphold the rights of others, unlike they uphold the rights of those they deem to be acceptable to them, we say to the GLBT Community:“Your Life Is Valuable and Equal to All. Your Human Rights Belong to No Man!”
