Now THIS is a man of God: “Have you ever read the Gospel and heard Jesus say anything about homosexuality? … Black folk can’t even deal with homosexuality because we got issues with sexuality. And because we got issues with sexuality we can’t have a healthy discussion about homosexuality. Why, why do you get so upset?” Find out much more about this here.
This is a very bold stance. Good for him.
» Why the storms didn’t prove deadly: Despite there being a dozen tornadoes that touched ground, it helped significantly that the storms happened in the middle of the day, rather than late at night. With people awake, it’s much easier to ensure they take cover; when people are asleep, the challenge becomes much more significant, meteorologists say.
Of course the windows were flying out, and my sister is paralyzed, so I had to get someone to help me get her in a wheelchair to get her out of the room. It was terribly loud.Dallas-area resident Joy Johnson • Speaking about the strong Texas storm that lashed strong winds at the nursing home where her sister lives. The storm, which shut down a number of flights and damaged planes at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, left more than a dozen people injured and caused significant damage throughout the region. But few scenes sound scarier than the scene at the Green Oaks Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Arlington, where two people were injured by the winds that clipped the building. Yikes. Scary scene.
Pretty scary scene near Dallas right now, where a very bad storm is producing tornadoes and hail throughout the region, causing what’s been referred to as “tremendous damage.” In this video found by @Breaking, that’s golf-sized hail. Freaking scary. Everyone stay safe out there.
» A family, aged 18-60, killed: Investigators worked overnight through Monday morning to figure out what happened Sunday, as a home in Grapevine, Texas, turned into a deadly scene. “Seven people in one setting in Grapevine, that’s never happened before. Ever,” said Grapevine Police Lt. Todd Dearing, who noted victims were related, but some may not have lived in the apartment. Many of the buildings are vacant around the apartment, and the only word of the shooting was a 911 call from a line with no answer on the other end.
This is how you get around gay-marriage laws. Mark Reed and Dante Walkup have long been in a committed relationship, and decided that they wanted to get married. Problem is, they live in Texas. So, here’s what they did: They had their ceremony in Dallas, but back in marriage-legal DC, they had marriage-equality activist Sheila Alexander-Reid officiate the wedding over Skype. (They got their marriage license ahead of time.) So they got married among friends, while still obeying local laws. Clever. Hopefully their union isn’t challenged. source
