While we may shake our heads in disbelief, I think many of us can understand how accepting a lifestyle unlike your own may be difficult; how respecting the beliefs of others is not always as simple as our higher self shows it ought to be. But its kind of difficult to wrap your brain around a pastor of all people, does this, and so, well, publicly. How someone who is suppose to represent a being that “loves everyone” can make judgments, generalizations and accusations and actually name people he probably knows little to nothing about.

But this never seems to stop pastor James David Manning of the ATLAH Missionary Church in Harlem, N.Y., from sticking it to the gay community. Now the pastor names gay NFL star Michael Sam (who he has standing in for any gay person for that matter) as someone who will travel to an Arab country, where he can freely marry a child, and return home where the marriage would be recognized.
*You may have often wondered what kids would say about the making of large families if they could actually articulate. Would they say, “Mom, I don’t want another brother or sister,” or “Oh no, not another one!” Those responses sound quite tame next to the ones this little fella came up with.
All I can say is…priceless. Here’s to you as you sip on your morning cup if java! Continue reading →
*Hey, it happens to the best of us at one time or another. We just need to disappear for a while. Not because we are bad guys or gals, just because we need to be alone. Incognito. Invisible. But with the ability of social media managing to track our every move, it seems impossible. I mean, have you ever paid attention to the “People You May Know” section on your Facebook page? Why the heck is your landlord there? How did he get there?
Hell no, I don’t want him as my friend!
Whatever your reason is for needing to disappear,Yahoo Small Business Advisor starts you off with “How to Permanently Delete Your Facebook Account.”
*For those of us who love to eat, (because we obviously love to drink!) this is especially great news. With the weekend fast-approaching, and Friday “Happy Hour” already on the mind, Yahoo has put together a list of foods that will make your “morning after” a bit more bearable.
Eating the right foods can be better than any medicine when it comes to curing those hangover blues. Now, if there was any real cure for a hangover, we’d probably know it by now, but there are certain foods that help make you feel better than others.
If you’re a breakfast anytime of the day kind of person, you’ll like this first hangover eliminating dish.
*You may also be thinking, “what in the hell is wrong with these fools? Who would douse himself with an accelerant and light himself on fire? Meet the new, ridiculous “challenge” circulating on FaceBook that is meant to make us laugh at the person running around aflame.
What, I ask, would be funny about this; and how could something not go terribly wrong?
One 15-year-old boy is dead from the injuries he sustained while performing the challenge. James Shores burned to death after his entire body was engulfed in flames. Continue reading →
*New information has revealed that the family of the woman being punched in the head repeatedly by a California Highway Patrol officer is pushing for said officer to be held accountable for his actions.
The beat down of the woman, whose name has still not been released, was videotaped by David Dias, a passing motorist who has since been doing interviews for the media to provide first-hand details on what the footage does not show. While the CHP has vowed to carry out “a thorough investigation,” the woman’s family and local civil rights agencies, are not sitting around waiting for that to happen. Continue reading →
*By now, many of us have heard about Malia Obama’s recent intern opportunity where she worked as a production assistant on Halle Berry’s new TV series, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to have an easy ride here on out; at least not according to her parents.
