In the news: 3 Republican Candidates Speak at "Kill the Gays" Pastor rally

A Conference that just happened is EXACTLY what we were talking about on Monday's Blog. In Iowa this week, Kevin Swanson, a "Pastor" at a Political Conference called for the death of gay people, screaming about the bible and his religion. 
 This was a Conference where Republicans Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz attended and spoke!!!

  In fact, this "Pastor" introduced ALL of them.
 

  This was a rabid anti-gay, "biblical commandment" that gay people should be rounded up and murdered in the name of Jesus.
  These people are SICK, SICK, SICK. Very, very disturbing.

In the news: Three Republican candidates speak at anti-gay pastor's rally

Rachel Maddow shows that while Democrats were participating in a candidates forum, Republicans Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz were guests at "religious freedom" event led by a pastor who preaches that homosexuality should be punished with death.

Here's more on the idiot:  Pastor Thinks Parents Should Drown Themselves Instead Of Letting Kids Read 'Harry Potter'
Let it be known: Pastor Kevin Swanson is no Harry Potter fan. In fact, Swanson is so opposed to J.K. Rowling's iconic series, he'd prefer that parents would drown themselves than let their children read it.
Swanson, who is a pastor at the Reformation Church of Elizabeth, Colorado and also hosts a weekly radio show, blasted Harry Potter and "How to Train Your Dragon" in a convoluted speech at the National Religious Liberties Conference on Nov. 7, Right Wing Watch reported. His issue with Potter, it seems, stemmed from Rowling's 2007 revelation that she always thought of Dumbledore the wizard as a gay man.  Full Article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/kevin-swanson-harry-potter_5640bd73e4b0411d3071a74e


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
