Friday Links!

Just a little pepper spray! Happy May Day! (And let’s be disturbed that the only people of color visible in this photo are the one’s being run off by the police…)

It’s Friday again! And it’s May. In Seattle we celebrated May Day with protest marches. A lot of protest marches. (You won’t believe this, but this is one of the official Seattle Police Department comments on their twitter account during the protests: “Officers were able to separate the superheroes and their black-clad adversaries. No arrests made.”)

Here’s a collection of news and other things that struck me as worthy of being shared:

America Is Losing Its Religion… and We’re All Better Off Because of It. It’s a statistical fact!

Beware of Those Who Do Things ‘For the Children’. Why don’t they oppose convicted murderers, drug addicts, and even those those convicted of child abuse getting married and having children?

Church Sues For First Amendment Right To Perform Gay Marriages In NC. When the news came out earlier that they passed this law criminalizing ministers performing ceremonies, I was wondering how anyone could have thought this would pass Constitutional muster. I’m just surprised it took this long for someone to fill the lawsuit.

American Family Association LEADER SAYS MISSISSIPPI BUSINESSES DISPLAYING GAY-FRIENDLY ‘DON’T DISCRIMINATE’ STICKERS ARE BULLYING CHRISTIANS. They keep stretching that definition further and further…

This Town Needs a Better Class of Racist. It’s easy for polite American society to condemn Cliven Bundy and banish Donald Sterling while turning away from the elegant, monstrous racism that remains.

Nearby galaxy is a ‘fossil’ from the early universe.

“But why does he have girl’s hair?”.

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live in Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
