Homosexual agenda (or gay agenda) is a term introduced by sectors of the Christian right (primarily in the United States) as a disparaging way to describe the advocacy of cultural acceptance and normalization of non-heterosexual orientations and relationships.
The term refers to efforts to change government policies and laws on LGBT rights-related issues.
Additionally, it may be used by social conservatives and others to describe alleged goals of LGBT rights activists, such as recruiting heterosexuals into what they term a “homosexual lifestyle”.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
To those who know, who belong to the LGBT community, this is a load of crap.
There’s no one in the community trying to “spread the word” or recruit others to become part of the “exclusive LGBTQ community”.
It’s a term made up to insult, isolate and disparage a group of citizens.

If you still think cannabis is a dangerous drug with no medicinal or spiritual benefits, read ahead and try to keep an open mind toward a misunderstood plant that’s been revered throughout history and was only outlawed in the past century.
Millions of people who’ve been healed by the cannabis plant are taking a stand for it and in doing so, igniting a revolution more powerful than its suppressors can handle.
We know it can heal the mind, body and spirit if used with proper intention, and we’re willing to defend it against those who know little about it beyond what the government and biased media outlets tell them.

Let me be as candid and transparent as possible: I was a very strong supporter of Bernie Sanders, and until the past four weeks, held out great hope that he would become our next President. Over the course of the past month, I have had to do a great deal of reflecting and ask myself where does this seemingly irrational antipathy for Hillary Clinton come from? Why have I participated in it? After doing some research and looking hard at systemic misogyny, I have had to confront myself with the truth that I bought into a narrative about Hillary Clinton that has been produced, packaged, and perpetuated by mostly the GOP with the help of many democrats and independents.
This narrative is a 30-year-old vilification of a woman who is bright, independent, wealthy, and powerful — a woman who asks for what she wants and needs. How very dare you…

“Running for President is not an entitlement to disrespect Gold Star families and [a] Gold Star mother.” ~ Mrs. Khan
Apparently Trump’s disgusting criticism of this family was a bridge too far…(ks)
The mother at the center of Donald Trump’s attack on the family of a slain purple heart recipient responded to the Republican presidential candidate.
In an interview with ABC News, Trump claimed that Ghazala Khan did not speak as her husband Khizr Khan spoke at the 2016 Democratic Convention because of their Islamic faith.
Trump said, “If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me.”
In his appearance, Mr. Khan discussed that his family emigrated to the United States and spoke about how his son served with distinction in the military, losing his life in…

I have said before that I consider myself a Socialist and a Christian. I think both Socialists and Christians might have a few objections with my views on both subjects though. Christians because my beliefs about what A christian is and what the Bible is about are apparently totally the opposite of theirs, Socialists because most Socialists are “political Democratic Socialists” instead of “Spiritual Socialists”
The first group of Socialists, the political or democratic socialists believe that socialism could be used as a political ideology much like Democracy and Communism forgetting that Communism is what you get when Socialism becomes political.
In fact, there is not much difference between a spiritual socialist and a Christian. Unlike our political counterpart we do not care about the rich being rich and getting richer. Unlike our political counterpart we do understand and agree that a ceo will make more than a line worker. We do not want or even need to take from the top. What spiritual Socialism is about is making sure the bottom of the list has a standard of life that is acceptable. A life in which everyone can go to a doctor, hospital or dentist without having to work 10 years to pay of that visit, a life in which a mother can go to a supermarket and buy food and baby stuff without having to wonder how to pay for the electricity bill while working 3 jobs.
A spiritual Socialist doesn’t care you have a $3.000.000 home, he does however want that those without a home get a place to sleep, a meal to eat and where possible work to pass the time and pay back to the community. This is not something that is just in the hands of politics, none of these things are. They are in our hands, they are about working together, about having empathy, compassion. It is about creating a better life for yourself by creating a better life for someone else. It is about respect and honoring the world around you, about treating everybody fair and with the same light.
That there are rich people is fine and there will always be “poor” people but with all our resources, with all our “peaceful” religions that ALL say to help our brothers and sisters that are in a lesser place then we are. With all this for us to use to our benefit we should be able to achieve that.Even while the rich are getting richer. It is not them that are the problem (in this case) but the general perception we have given to “rich” and “poor”. If the “poor” (what is that 90% of the population? (everyone with an income less than say $150K?) stops blaming the rich and starts doing what Christianity, Islam and Judaism tell them to do then at least in countries like the USA and the Netherlands, Germany, the UK etc it will be possible to have an acceptable standard of life for everyone.
Don’t sit on your ass waiting for a politician to fix our problems, get out get involved, help your neighbor and brother or sister
Regardless who ou follow or if you are an evolutionist, in the end we ALL have the same ancestor, be it Adam and Eve or a Caveman. We are all family, we are all Brothers and Sisters, we are all ONE.
That is what Spiritual Socialism is about
One morning a young man was riding his bike to town when he was stopped by 2 soldiers. That morning terrorists had blown up a train and since the young man looked a lot like those that were suspected of the attack the young man was arrested and taken for interrogation.
Although the young man tried to convince the military he had nothing to do with the attack they figured that since the young man had the same religion, came from the same culture and was obviously in the area when the attack happened they kept him locked up for further investigation.
After about two weeks the young man was told he would move to a special prison made with the special purpose to house suspected individuals like him. Interrogations in that prison were hard and forms of torture where not excluded. Although they could never prove anything the young man stayed in that prison for almost 3 years until it finally got closed and the young man set free to be with his family again
A story about a Muslim no doubt? The prison being Guantanamo? No doubt the terrorists where Isis or Al Qaida……
Actually no, the story above is that of an uncle of me. He was a Jewish young man of 23 years of age on April 12th 1942 when this happened to him. The prison was called an “Internierungslager” and was located near Berlin, it was closed when Germany was defeated.
When WWII happen the whole world was in shock, how could the German population have elected Hitler as leader, wasn’t his anti -Semitism and hate speech not obvious enough, where the Germans racists? Was it something in the water? Regardless.. the world came together and US, British, Polish, Canadian soldiers and many more fought and died side by side on the battlefields of Europe. When the horror was over we agreed on one thing, this can and must NEVER happen again.
Now in the USA however (but also in other countries) a man has risen who’s hate, disrespect and anti-social behavior are eerie resembling those of Hitler, He has the same rhetoric, uses the same “solutions” is in favor of abolishing the Venetian convention agreements and is setting up brother against brother and sister against sister..
Remember what we agreed upon, NEVER AGAIN. If you want to honor those that fought and died for all our freedom you will not vote Trump
