This was really good.
As someone who grew up gay and Catholic, I certainly never thought Id see this one in my lifetime. While Francis is certainly liberal for a pope, I admit, Im (happily) stunned.
CNN) Pope Francis has declared support for civil unions for same-sex couples for the first time, according to the Catholic News Agency.
The Pope made the historic remarks in a new documentary film, "Francesco," which was released in Rome on Wednesday.
"Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They're children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it," the Pope said in the film, the Catholic News Agency reported.
Its easy to feel pessimistic about our country. We have so much work to do.
But this month feels like were turning around. That were just done with this man and the horror the Republican Party has become. More and more, Im hearing from people who arent normally invested in politics. Theyre over it. Theres a sense this just cannot go on. Were going to lance this boil on our body politic.
Joe Biden was never my guy. Im a progressive. He was my last choice. But now? Im excited for everything about the man. Hes going to fix this, and were going to help him.
Why have a moderator at all?
I dont get emotional about politics. Not worth the blood pressure. I do what I can, then attend to the other parts of my life.
However, I am a ball of anxiety this morning. Biden next to that screaming idiot. And we dont know which campaign staffers were wandering and mixing on Tuesday.
Im not freaking out, but, Please be fine. Please be fine. Please be fine, has been coming up in my head several times an hour since finding out about shit heel.
