Today [April 16th] is National Day of Silence, a day in which middle, high school, and college students across the country remain silent for the entirity of 1 school day to protest the "silence" in response to discrimination against GLBTQ individuals. Homophobic groups claiming to protect "family values" have been doing numerous things to show their displeasure for day of silence. And of course, Fox News, Richard Murdoch's evil spawn, had to way in and put in their "own two cents" about Day of Silence.
Skycomet's school has not organized a day of silence, so I will commemorate this day by posting items relevant to GLBTQ issues all day today.

Well, today, 2nd December, 2011, is the day that the Australian government is having a forum, one of the topics being Gay Marriage. Some people are voting it, or want to vote it as a conscience vote. It is only the xian right, predominantly catholic, that is against marriage here.

As for Rupert Murdoch, typical xain hypocrite of the first order. He has been married three times, his papers are an abomination, who has lied and cheated and blackmailed as part of their business plan. Frigging hypocrite!!!!

There are at least two xian churches ready for gay marriages in their church, 

Quakers and United Church of Australia.

It is all being discussed and voted on today - the vast majority of Australians think it should be a fate accompli - just lets get on with the really big problems of the world.

The next link is to a very  interesting site about Quakers - so there are some good xians around, just not enough.
