Second Class Citizens

It has been a month since Proposition 8 passed.  I do not know about you but I am unwilling to go back to the way it was.  In fact, the word on the street is that the "suspicious church burning" in Wasilla (Sarah Palin's hometown) had something to do with the LGBT community.  What an incredible assumption! So, as you can see, some think we are back to status quo.   Until full rights are guaranteed to all classes of people we need to do what we can to move the discussion to that point.

I looked for this song in video format and I am disappointed to say I could not find it.  If someone can locate it for me please let me know.  In the meantime:  Thank you Peter, Paul and Mary.

Jesus is on the Wire

(Thea Hopkins)

Run down church
Red clay
River covered
In a smoky haze

Sunday morning
The fire is out
Sunday morning
No one about

The earth is soft
This time of year
Boots get caked
From there to here

Down the road
Route 25
They found this boy
He was barely alive

Jesus is on the wire
So far away, higher and higher
Jesus is on the wire

They took him down
Off the fence
Cold as ice
Almost dead
They said that he
That he slept with guys
They said that he
Deserved to die

Jesus is on the wire
So far away, higher and higher
Jesus is on the wire

Unless someone knew or saw something unreported, the FACT is that the folks at many blogs and media outlets are intentionally aligning the fire to the lgbt community. Figures.

It infuriates me.

But we--the collective we--move on, as we have to do. The MSM does us nothing but harm in the most occasion.

Sad, isn't it? We have a "column" with an agenda.

Hope my house foundation isn't thinking the same thing.

As far as the church in Wasilla, where did I see the following remark remark ? MP's ? Anyway...

Why is it that when a "liberal" church burns, it's God's Will. But when a conservative one does, it's automatically arson ?
