WOW Flag -- "equal justice under law - apply to us, too"

Fri, 06/26/2015



They are everywhere!!
Reaction came swiftly. James Obergefell, the Ohio man who was the lead plaintiff in the case, told a cheering crowd outside the Supreme Court, "Today's ruling from the Supreme Court affirms what millions across this country already know to be true in our hearts - our love is equal, that the four words etched onto the front of the Supreme Court - equal justice under law - apply to us, too."
The 13th, 14th, 15th amendments paved the way.  Which is exactly the opposite of what the other flag down south at the center of controversy stands for.
"We hold these truths ..." after a very long long time "to be self evident. That all men ..." white men 1776 & 1790 & 1856 and latin american men 1848 & 1965 and black men 1870 & 1965 and women 1920 & 1965 & 1973 and native americans 1924 & 1947 & 1965 and asians 1926 & 1952 & 1965 and everyone 1965 & 1968 and young adults 1971 and LGBT 2015 ... ish "...are created equal"

How cool is that?

The web of Life Number 2: Wanted Toilet Paper

Wed, 06/10/2015


Wanted -- Toilet Paper: That’s right, SCUU goes through an average of 4 rolls of toilet paper a week. One roll of toilet paper per month from each family could really make a difference. One four pack every few months would be great too! Thank you.

You can also order toilet paper via our Amazon Link ...

How many words are there for Toilet Paper? Bumwad, TP, poop-on coupons ...

You Might Be UU -- How to take Christ out of Christianity

Wed, 05/06/2015


I figured there'd be a Unitarian reference and I was right ... Living on Tulsa time ...

A good read ... How to take Christ out of Christianity

"These are the people who identify with ambivalent, ambiguous statements like “I’m spiritual, but not religious”; “I’m kind of agnostic”; “Now I’m an atheist, but I grew up Catholic”; or “I believe in something, but I don’t know if it’s God.”"

“These people are looking for communities and for memories from their background, but they want to do it in an intellectually consistent way.”

"Believing Christians need not water down the fact that God is at the root of their commitments and traditions to accommodate nonbelievers. And nonbelievers need not make a point of telling their believing brethren that general goodwill or humanism is a better motivation for good works. As Maguire points out, the biblical metaphor for society is a household, not an institution but a dwelling place for a family. Though families will quarrel over what they don’t have in common, they are meant to come together for what they do: an ancient story of a new family formed in a place most of us will never go and a call to peace in the world that none of us can ever entirely live up to. And that is worth keeping alive for its radical, enduring and miraculous love."

Hey we are "these people".
