Not that I'm a pro-gun guy -- I'm with you on general principal -- but this gun did not accidentally go off. This guy pulled the trigger. He's stupid.

And raindrops taste like tears without the pain."

I did have a LOL moment, but another part of me thought: Here we go again, confusing gay people with closeted child molesters.

That laughter does not exactly sound like the enthusiastic guffaws of those who wholeheartedly agree and support his views, but rather the amazed uncomfortable titters of those who can't be at ease with what they're hearing but are trying to burn off the awkwardness, the tension. Sure, there are also some bigots there, but it doesn't sound like there is a great deal of agreement. Kinda like the Germans around the concentration camps? Maybe, disregarding scale.

commented on Catholic High School Yanks Invite From Commencement Speaker
This is my hometown, so you can imagine how my Facebook page is blowing up right now. The principal addressed the senior class today. This is a post from a friend.
"I just read this update on Dominic's petition page:
Denny Starnes, principal of Sacred Heart Academy addressed the senior class today. According to the students, he took the time to apologize for his mistake in cancelling Dominic as the keynote speaker at commencement, and ensured them that he would do whatever it takes, even putting his job on the line, in order to fix the situation. He also said that he was initially acting in a way that he thought was best for the school and most in line with church practices, but now has realized that his actions were wrong. The decision, according to Starnes, is now entirely in the Bishop’s hands. The students claimed he made statements in support of gay rights and of our protest of intolerance. They have said that they are grateful for the courage exhibited by their principal in admitting his mistake and working to make a change.
Now we must turn our attention on Bishop Joseph Cistone and ask him also to change his mind and apologize for his homophobic and intolerant behavior.
This again was what was written on the petition page not directly from the principal."
