Pride Day 2015

These are shots from San Francisco’s 2015 Pride
Celebration.

I saw an interesting rewrite of the Pledge of Allegiance.
I’ve closed the post with it.

  1. Pride started as a protest, but I am proud of my community, accepting those who are different and for the Gay/Lesbian/Transgender/BiSexual members of this community for spreading colour and joy to get their message across. Long may we all live together in peace and harmony.

      1. We are all capable of changing things, for better or worse. I have spent my life in the cause of peace, others spend theirs planning and committing crimes or acts of terror. Those who can have the biggest impact, IMHO, are those seeking change peacefully. The others bring their victims together seeking justice by legal means. I have seen the face of evil and it works in the name of religion to promote evil, pain and suffering on the masses.

      2. All it takes for Evil to thrive, is for good men to do nothing. I’m a pacifist but that doesn’t mean I won’t fight, or be prepared to die, when evil threatens my nation, my family or my beliefs. After all the worlds best army hasn’t been involved in a war for centuries, could that be why the Pope is protected by the Swiss Guard?
        I believe Hitler was misguided before he became German Chancellor and that’s why he became evil incarnate. As a pacifist I could not have stood idly by while evil gripped Europe, therefore I wouldn’t have joined the conscientious objectors who refused to fight. That’s why I have nothing but admiration for those who have fought evil, and continue to do so, to preserve our freedoms.
        I’m not worried about dying, why should I be? There’s no reason to fear death, he comes for us all and we have to go sometime. If you fear death do you also fear life? Life is for living and we should all be free to live life to the max.

      3. Yes…death is an act of life, and I agree–I have respect for all of the people who have sacrificed to make life a little better for all of us. There many soldiers and many ways to sacrifice. I don’t fear death as much as I fear a life without faith and meaning.

  2. The Supremes, for once, made an excellent decision. Equal rights for all was the intent of the Founders, and gays should be allowed to marry and divorce like straights. It is common sense and basic human decency, yet it has triggered the same firestorm that gave men of color equal standing before the law, and then, finally, even women! I don’t understand the vitriole.

    1. Well…neither do I. What I do know is that when we act as if it’s harmless it tears us to shreds.

      This decision by the Supreme Court marks the beginning of a new phase of struggle…because we know from history that the folks that need slaves, and peasants and other scapegoats, will never stop finding new ways to undermine progress.

      I’m ready for a chorus of Babylove:
