Consolidating, condensing or axing several partially formed websites I've authored and published as I've let things grow (and let things go) organically since 1999. I'm Allan. Hey, You. The original website: 'Loving more Queers pound-for-pound than any other site on the Internet.' That's my opinion, and you're welcome to it. Don't forget the rest: 'Websites cannot love.' Are you here to accept my 'Lev. 20:13 or STFU' Challenge? I'm 100% serious. This isn't intended to be a secret incident. I won't immediately trust you with my physical location and cellphone number. I'm not looking to get executed by some anonymous coward. There really is no need for this to take all that long, if you're committed and prepared to 'do the deed' and accept the consequences. Are you ready to set an example for those Christians who seem all full of bluster, publicly nagging other people to follow their rules, but empty of the courage of their convictions when applied to themselves? Well, I respect someone like you more than someone damning all of us Queers to hell for eternity, and to lay waste to our lives blaming the first half of Leviticus 20:13, yet refuse to be equally convicted themselves -- most probably to wind up punished, but for only this one short, inconsequential Earth-bound lifetime -- by the second half of Leviticus 20:13. The only solution, and it's right there, Biblically ordered, to the first half is the second half! I keep my word. Follow through with this and you're sure to become an overnight religious STAR! I won't get anything out of it because I'll be dead. Whatever else I turn into, like on 'Bones', I'll just be a dead guy to me. Jon Stewart Is God (B.E.L.I.E.V.E.I.N.H.I.M.O.R.D.I.E.)

Two cases of blasphemy: Muslim boy cuts off own hand after a mistake, Indian comedian arrested for mocking guru

Why Evolution Is True

1. From the Express Tribune and International New York Times.  This story, from Pakistan is unbelievable:

A 15-year-old boy cut off his own hand believing he had committed blasphemy, only to be celebrated by his parents and neighbours for the act, police told AFP on Friday.

Local police chief Nausher Ahmed described how an imam told a gathering at a village mosque that those who love the Prophet (PBUH) Mohammad always say their prayers, then asked who among the crowd had stopped praying.

Mohammad Anwar, 15, raised his hand by mistake after apparently mishearing the question.

The crowd swiftly accused him of blasphemy so he went to his house and cut off the hand he had raised, put it on a plate, and presented it to the cleric, the police chief said.

. . . Ahmed said that he has seen a video in which the boy is greeted by…

Philly City Hall will fly a transgender flag right next to U.S. flag

Philly City Hall will fly a transgender flag right next to U.S. flag


The Philadelphia mayor’s office may be leading the way when it comes to cities making the transgender community feel included. Next week, Philadelphia’s city hall plans will raise the transgender flag right next to the U.S. flag, according to the city’s director of LGBT affairs.

“Far too often the ‘T’ is left behind or out of sight when we talk about LGBT issues, and it’s important to visibly make a commitment to the work that we know needs to be done,” Nellie Fitzpatrick told Philadelphia Gay News. “I can’t think of anything more visible than putting the trans flag right next to the American flag at City Hall.”

The transgender flag will be flown alongside the U.S. flag for two days beginning with a ceremony on June 4th that coincides with a transgender health conference being hosted in the city.

The trans flag was designed by trans Navy veteran Monica…

Gaza death toll reaches 41 in day two of Israeli assault

Imagine the “yard” of any prison, full of all of the prison’s prisoners, forced out of the prison cells they are forced to call their home. There, in the open, crowded far beyond design. All of the guard towers start firing down on them with machine guns. Some throw hand grenades. Gaza is the prisoners and the prison. It is a private prison, built against all international laws and despite international agreements, treaties, and rulings against it. They are murdering people for being Palestinian. For being Arabs. They treat Israeli Arabs as a sub-species. They are murdering people because they can. Because you are letting them. “Settlers” are physically invading another country for the purpose of permanently occupying and stealing the Palestinians over whom they build their mausoleums of death. “Settlers” are enemies by choice. If you drag your children out into the battlefield and get them murdered, you have no right to blame the enemy, you alone are to blame. #BDS Zionese Israel. De-weaponize the Middle East, starting with acknowledging Israel as a nuclear nation without parallel in that region.

Israeli jets strike 34 targets in Gaza Strip

And hours after the body of the 22-year-old sports and social hero was discovered, after he was murdered by Israel’s shooters because he was Palestinian and most Palestinians were very proud of him. Peashooters vs. EVERY WEAPON LEGAL AND ILLEGAL KNOWN TO MANKIND, INCLUDING NUCLEAR WEAPONS AND BANNED CHEMICAL WEAPONS LIKE WHITE PHOSPHOROUS, The world must begin planning the Israeli attack that will eject them from that stolen land and send them packing, looking for their next place to despoil and taint and lay waste to. They can take their fucking obscene wall with them when they are forced out of Israel. They certainly don’t deserve $8 million a day straight from the paychecks of American workers!
