|Euro Maestro||69,765||Monika and me - Why I love Google Plus ! #whyilovegoogleplus #rogerandme #euromaestro Why do I love Google plus ? It's because of all the great people here that I meet and that I get to interact with.I've met quite a few in the last week IRL and that's been quite a pleasure. I've tried to encourage other people to join as well so they can also enjoy all the great interaction on Google plus. Some of you may recall that I started the +Roger and Me project to encourage +Roger Ebert to follow +Mike Elgan in posting on Google plus. While Roger still isn't posting here, the project was a success in demonstrating the community effort that is alive and well here.One of the people that I have been blessed to interact with is +Monika Ljubičić She is such a great person and has put together a wonder list of people that she interacts with. Here's Monika's post and what she has to say about each person !https://plus.google.com/u/0/110788105777643761839/posts/3hmohoGmPZv Monika says she doesn't do circles but I do.I've put together a circle below that is the people in her list. If I left someone out accidentally, I'm so sorry I tried to be careful. As I said before, Monika is a great person but she has been going through some difficult times lately. As someone that has also had some difficult moments lately, I can appreciate how difficult it can be. I think far too often it is easy to forget that there are people behind these posts. Why not show Monika our love ?!||2012-11-15 11:33:33||89||47||25||56||CC G+|

|Laurence Hubbard||15,073||My 100 most relevant Plussers according to GoogleSince everyone is sharing one of these today, here's mine.If you got notified about this Circle, it's because you're in it!If you're new to G+ and want to pick up a circle of amazing people, this is a good one :-)||2012-07-24 23:45:10||100||35||9||50||CC G+|
|Gay USA Pages||8,657||Top RelevancyI've seen a couple of these now from folks like +Carter Gibson and +Farran Lee. Thought I'd toss ours out as well for you! According to Google+, these are the 99 most relevant people for us (100 if you include us). There's a nice mixture of both pages and profiles in it. A good chunk of the circle posts LGBT related posts and the remainder are either members of the community or friendly towards it... or of course, just generally awesome people we interact with. A quick disclaimer: Before you add the circle, be sure to check them out. I know there are a couple I'll have to mute a few of their posts because they post NSFW imagery on occasion, but it is sporadic and the rest of their posts are suitable so no need to worry too much, but want to make sure you're forewarned, just in case when you add them its one of those sporadic moments! If you'd like to share yours, go to your circles page, click on "Your Circles" (if not selected already) and then change the drop down to "Relevance" (again, if not already that way) and create a circle with the first 99 people. Then share away! Why 99? If you include yourself, that's a pretty 100 people. Not only is it a circle that isn't overwhelming, but it is also a small enough amount you can let them know that they're relevant to you... like you all who got a notification about this circle. :) #lgbt #circleshare||2012-07-24 18:29:00||100||23||2||18||CC G+|

Instead of a new members page, if you're looking to get started with the G+ community, try adding this circle. It's the circle I've made of folks who seem to actively engage in conversations here. They post in their streams and they post comments in other people's streams. Starting and engaging in conversation is the best way to use Google+. Don't feel you need to know someone before you circle them; just circle people you find interesting. Comment on posts when you have something to say. Engage.||2011-12-12 09:14:31||203||4||0||3||CC G+|

Comedian Sabrina Jalees, in a moment of brutal candor, revealed a bit of the homosexual agenda: “You should see what we've got planned once we get our equal rights. We're gonna go ahead and keep living. Almost exactly the same was heterosexuals do, just with better clothes.”

So basically, Gov. Brewer said the bill was bullshit:
Brewer said she had "not heard one example" of any Arizonan being forced to compromise religious beliefs. And she warned the law "has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve."

We have all heard of the angry, middle-aged, white American male. Take a look at the Republican Party.They are just about the angriest people I know. Guess what? We don't have to do a thing for them. Anger is one of the seven deadly sins. If you are mad as hell and don't want to take it anymore, we are not going to give it to you. I'm talking to you too, rent boys. No more servicing closeted politicians. We will not serve angry Republicans.

Religious people should be very hesitant to go down the path of discrimination based on "sincerely held" beliefs, as it could be used against them. What if someone were to claim that their sincerely held belief caused them to not serve fundamentalist religious people? If these bills pass, you can guarantee that the reputation of religious people is gong to take a serious hit.
Bills that encourage communities to rip apart the fabric of America should be seen for what they are: discriminatory and deeply un-American. That is my sincerely held religious belief.

As the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, while this is merely “guidance,” Holder’s message is loud and clear: bans on marriage equality — as many federal courts have repeatedly found — are unconstitutional and there’s no need to defend them any more.

Judge H. Lee Sarokin, retired federal judge:
While the religious right cheers, the rest of the country should be moaning. Those who choose not to do business with gays because of their religious beliefs (or their bigotry) should be free to do so and be prepared to suffer the consequences if their conduct is deemed to be unlawful. However, for the state to encourage, codify and memorialize such discrimination is a disgrace. I marvel at those who receive special immunity from lawmakers: the gun industry, the stand-your-ground shooter and now those who discriminate against gays.
When your religious belief keeps you from making a cake for or taking a picture of two happy people, maybe it's the belief that needs changing -- not the legislation.

The sign reads:
“So serving gays is against your religion? I expect you also plan to refuse service to:
People who eat shellfish
People who eat meat on Fridays
People who work on Sundays
People who shave/cut their hair
People who wear two different materials
People who plant more than one type of seed

"SB 1062 permits discrimination under the guise of religious freedom," state Senate Democratic Leader Anna Tovar said in a statement Wednesday. "With the express consent of Republicans in this Legislature, many Arizonans will find themselves members of a separate and unequal class under this law because of their sexual orientation. This bill may also open the door to discriminate based on race, familial status, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability."

No country with anti-gay laws should host the Olympics ever again.
Sign now to ask the Olympic Committee to change the rules for good.

"Twisted Element helped send a straight Olympic athlete to Sochi. And the athlete they chose? He used to be a homophobe."

Insofar as there was confusion about what Windsor meant at the time it was decided, the lower courts across the country have now effectively settled it. A survey of publicly available opinions shows that in the eight months since Windsor, 18 court decisions have addressed an issue of equality based on sexual orientation. And in those 18 cases, equality has won every single time. In other words, not a single court has agreed with Chief Justice Roberts that Windsor is merely about state versus federal power. Instead, each has used Windsor exactly as Justice Scalia “warned”—as a powerful precedent for equality.

Because NO parents is SO much better for children than (gasp!) two parents of the same sex.
"Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has just signed a new decree banning all same-sex or unmarried opposite-sex couples from adopting children, and banning adoptions by foreigners if the Russian children will live in countries where same-sex marriage is legal.
"There are an estimated 740,000 children in Russia waiting to be adopted, and only 18,000 Russians currently looking to adopt them."

"Looking at America from outside, it is clear that it is not a place where a gay man or woman can feel safe. With brutal murders, rampant suicides, hateful leaders, and homophobic TV shows, it is clear that America, the self-proclaimed defender of equal rights, needs to stop looking at the faults of others, and focus on its own (gigantic) flaws."

*Although the ruling is clear that Kentucky's law is unconstitutional, Heyburn also issued an interim order scheduling a hearing "in the near future to discuss the appropriate form of relief and the timing of its effect," meaning same-sex couples are not yet able to marry in Kentucky. *

Except, really, it's because people long ago discovered that religion is great for passing one's will off as universal morality. It is a self-perpetuating, horrible cycle.
But it is not endless. If every time someone said, "because God," everyone else said, "nobody cares," eventually, they'd stop doing it.
