Disappointment and Justice Delayed
 
"I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."
Martin Luther King JR.

The Letter from Birmingham Jail (also known as “Letter from Birmingham City Jail” and “The Negro Is Your Brother”) is an open letter written on April 16, 1963, by Martin Luther King, Jr. The letter defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racism, arguing that people have a moral …

" This War on Hackers is likely to be no more effective than the War on Drugs, where after three decades the prison population has sky rocketed from 0.1% of the population to a staggering 1%. With 5% the world’s population, we have 25 percent of the world’s prisoners—and this has done nothing to stop drugs. Likewise, while Obama’s new laws will dramatically increase hacking prosecutions, they’ll be of largely innocent people rather than the real hackers that matter."

Gods of Love…(some restrictions apply)

15 minuets into the funereal service for 33 year old  Vanessa Collier , Pastor Ray Chavez refused to go on. Was he choked up at the death of a young person, the outpouring of love and grief by her family and friends? What stopped Pastor Ray Chavez from going on with the service was  the realization that the person he was mourning had been gay.
The New Hope Ministries Pastor  looked at the pictures around him,  saw the dead woman’s  kids and her wife and then rather than see the love and joy in her living  judged her according to his faith.
Chaos ensued. Read on for the aftermath.
 

A Lakewood minister refused hold a memorial service on Saturday for a mother of two at his church because the woman is gay, according to family and friend

"There was a time when a person who was not particularly technical, or whose technical acumen was sufficient to get applications running on a machine and not much more, could code a webpage. The tags were pretty straightforward, the uses of them clear, and the behavior pretty dependable. Much how one could, in a weekend, learn sufficiently how to pilot a sailboat… such was that a few weekends of study could allow a person to craft a fun little webpage, with their voice, their stamp, and the idiosyncrasies of their personality shining through.

Those days are gone. Long gone."
