The Ugly Collusion Between ‘Religious Faith’ and Bigotry

But the anger was due to the fact that this man said lgbts should be placed behind an electrified fence like they were cattle to be abused and killed off.

I’m Glad That Nelson Mandela Was Here

By: Friday December 6, 2013 6:40 am

Mandela lived a long life and leaves a great legacy. And now he is at peace, taking his well-deserved rest. So while there is a void in our hearts, let there also be a bit of contentment and gladness. Let’s not waste so much time mourning the fact that Mandela is gone that we forget how thankful we should be that he was here in the first place.
