From C&L:

Things that make you go “Huh?”

People for the American Way:

A far right Catholic group that thinks Bill Gates and Warren Buffet should be reviled for their humanitarian work (saying "they have money, we have God"), objects to a vaccine to inoculate women against cervical cancer, and thinks that Mel Gibson's ‘apology' after his "unfortunate relapse in his fight with alcohol," and "some imprudent comments made while in that state "is enough to say "case closed, move on," has this to say about the Mark Foley revelations that he was abused by a member of his clergy:

"If his claim that he was the victim of sexual molestation by a clergyman, it only further proves that known homosexuals should not be admitted to the priesthood. Foley's actions were that of homosexual predator, not a pedophile. Homosexuals reproduce sexually by molesting children. (emphasis added) This creates a cycle of violence and disordered behavior that creates future generations of abusers and predators." Read on…

The group, Human Life International, claims to have 59 satellite offices in 51 countries and describes itself as "the largest international, pro-life, pro-family, pro-woman organization in the world.”

Do you see the dangers of not teaching sex ed in the schools? Even a basic biology class could have helped these guys.

Quick lesson, folks: Repeat After Me: "Gay" and "Pedophile" Are Not Remotely Related

Elissa Hadley Photo Gallery

I haven't posted yet about Elissa's memorial service last week, I'm in the process of scanning some pictures and getting together the eulogies that were read by the chosen speakers. For the time being, I've created a gallery of Elissa pictures, 183 in total. I love the faces she makes in every one of them.

This is the song they played at the end of the service, you can stream it here:
"Twirling" by Breathlanes featuring Elissa Hadley
I am better
I am braver
Yes
I am bird wings and birthday cake
Flying starlight clean again
I am flying starlight clean
I am
I am twinkly
Like a tree
At Christmas time
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you...
