Why not progressive?

At times I'm frustrated by those that don't follow politics in the United States. I worry they don't vote, I worry they don't get their opinion out there. Of course, I am very progressive and very much in opposition to the right, however, I'm being inspired by a much greater goal than politics. Politics is all cyclical. It's not important in the grand scheme of things. The important part of life is what all the regular people are doing. I'm changing the focus of this blog a bit. Not because I think the Tea Party won the midterms or anything like that but because I want to elevate us above that sort of derogatory nonsense into something that is far more useful. Something to save us and save the world. Small goals, I know. But seriously something to talk about.

An Assistant Attorney General?

Being the first post of this blog it's oddly not fitting with the premise.  This doesn't have anything to do with the midterms nor the Tea Party, however, it is so beyond my comprehension I had to share.  It seems Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell is attacking Chris Armstrong.  Take a look at this link: Assistant Attorney General

Let me know what you think.  Personally, I don't even get the motivation to attack someone because they're gay.  Well, I may have a stake in that statement.

  1. Well, let me be the first.....
    I reviewed several articles in regards to Andrew Shirvell's appalling behavior, and I can't quite figure him out. He's like a puritan on a witch hunt, and he has no basis for his outrageous claims. I'm reminded of a recent incident involving my cousin; a former minister, he posted how great it was to finally come out of the "closet" and live freely with his lover of many years. He is a successful man living in NYC, and is active in his community, and kind and loving to his family. He received such negative feedback from former church members on how he is twisting the bible to suit his own needs, living a life of ungodliness, and setting a poor example for everyone who knows him; some had gone so far as to tell him to stop communicating with their families and children. Thank Goodness he is a strong and intelligent man, and did not succumb to these people. What if he was young and uncertain, and could not handle the bullying of these people? Would he have taken his own life as other young gay men have? Would he hide away and feel like an outcast in society? We are not living in the dark ages people, and we must do all we can to stop this kind of behavior. I find that Andrew Shirvell's self-righteous and judgemental behavior should be denounced by his peers, and he should be removed from public service. He has certainly crossed the lines of his own civil rights and is both threatening and abusive towards Chris Armstrong. Regardless of what Mr. Shirvell believes, he has no right to come after a person in this way!
