There one line where he mentions that the US has hurt lesbians and gays. They might not be perfect allies (as you said, the Bible has some shit in it) but I glad that they trying. If we want other churches, and therefore more people, to turn around, we need to encourage those who do step out and speak up for us.

DRM systems built over a span of years at a cost of millions are routinely cracked in an afternoon by bored teenagers. BigChampagne, the P2P (peer to peer) monitoring service, reports that it takes a mere 180 seconds for a DRM’ed song released on the iTunes Store to show up as a free P2P download. Anyone who thinks that companies are going to make bits get harder to copy in the future is either not paying attention or kidding himself.Doctorow outlines the problems with DRM and some of the recent history in the text, which is well worth reading if you buy or listen to digital music, or know anyone who does.Universe hates Higgs boson, Chicago CubsBy John Bowman, CBCNews.

I don’t understand other people’s problem with beards. Beards are a natural feature of the adult male human. Scraping mine off makes me look silly and makes my face sore so I leave it alone (although I do trim it and tidy its edges). The argument is surely about what the Red Cross represents.

Note: Homophobia, racism, harassment and general hate on ethnicity, sex, religion or anything else will result in a permanent ban that cannot be appealed. Tips that advocate/support illegal activities are also grounds for a permanent ban as well. Tips or comments that encourage behavior that can cause injury or harm to others will be cause for a ban.
