Holy Hypocrite!

By Alberto Pupo

It is quite sickening, Kim Davis embattled County Clerk, taking a stand against Oppression, emulating the very Jesus she claims to believe in. Her actions are heroic! denying the Civil Rights of  the LGBT community is a sign of a true hero, thee is a place in Heaven right at the side of the Lord. Like Nelson Mandela once did she stews  in a jail cell Davis.Kim_because she fought for what was right the right to oppress.

The Supreme Court only a few months ago settle the score on marriage equality. Because it is the highest court in the land their decision cannot be easily ignored especially those who are part of the Court System. Kim Davis is no hero, she is a hypocrite who broke the law, hiding behind white privilege in a highly conservative state, hiding behind the mask of Christianity a very common hiding place for those of criminal intent who love to Continue reading

Same-Sex Marriage in All 50 States: Thank you, SCOTUS

Same-Sex Marriage in All 50 States: Thank you, SCOTUS!

By Leane Pupo

I woke up to rainbows and it is beautiful. Today the Supreme Court of the United States came to the decision that same-sex couples have the right to marry in all 50 states. While this may be a shocker to many “traditionalists,” today love won.

How can we expect a country to grow into a loving and tolerant society, when they would not allow truly devoted and loving couples to share the same rights as other loving and devoted couples?

Accepting Gay Rights and Gay Marriage is human. It does not have to be “your cup of tea,” but it is not YOUR life. Who are we to dictate who someone can love and share a bond with? Who are we to dictate that a couple that shares everything in life, cannot share the rights and legal responsibilities as another couple?

I am a proud heterosexual woman that has been married to the love of my life for the last ten years. I am also extremely proud of my country for not denying proud homosexual individuals the same joys of marriage across our land.

This is a big one, folks. We are showing acceptance, tolerance, and understanding. If we

can allow this feeling to permeate into other aspects of intolerance and discrimination, then we truly do have a shot for equality and simple humanity for all. We cannot define “human” by race, religion, creed, gender, or sexual orientation, but we should be embracing all differences, variations, and individuals.

Congratulations to all the same-sex couples out there. May our future, as a country, continue to be bright and may we spread love and understanding to everyone around us.

Carolina Love

Carolina knows how to party if your straight that is…..This assignment would be certainly be interesting. Going down to the heart of the beast a place that has just passed a ban on Gay Marriage in 2012. I am doing this report to see the view from the horse’s mouth. What makes your average North Carolina citizen tick? What is the reason for accepting so archaic and backward a law by popular vote. Hopped on caffeine and with fingers crossed I drive into Carolina hoping to get an answer to the burning questions and not get burned in the process…

The drive was hellish, I am terribly nervous pulling up to a white home behind a picket fence. It has a Leave it to Beaver facade part of Norman Rockwell’s America. There is a crucifix on the door Continue reading
