Bishop Excluded by HBO Broadcast, Opening Ceremony Prayer Edited Out - Shadowproof

I got off of the plane from LA to DC, rushed to my friend’s house, ordered Chinese take out, tuned to HBO–and WTF?! They edited out Bishop Robinson! No Bishop Robinson?! Why? We can speculate, they can prevaricate, but they did this, and it sucks, and if this is act symbolizes the opening of Obama’s administration, as handled by corporate media, America, we are fucked.Here is the text of the bishop’s prayers, which tens of thousands got to hear if they were at the Lincoln Memorial.

Another Anti-Gay Hypocrite Outted: Pastor Tom Brock - Shadowproof

Another Anti-Gay Hypocrite Outted: Pastor Tom Brock - Shadowproof

The only time outting is ethical is when  it’s  hypocrites getting their sheets yanked; cf “Rekers, George;”  “Haggard, Ted;” or  “Craig, Larry.” Jim Bakker, John Ensign and Marc Sanford also come to mind as hypocrites, shoving “family values” down America’s throat while shoving it in on the side. Morality is fine, but live by your law, and don’t impose yours on the rest. Especially when you’re a lying sack.So just who is Pastor Tom Brock? Well, he’s a conservative , anti-gay, anti-abortion minister at Hope Lutheran Church in Minneapolis who believes that God recently sent a tornado onto...

And, artistically, they’re difficult to make. Developing a complete world in minutes means that each word and image must absolutely move the story forward.This week’s pick is a real gem. Clocking in at just over 6 minutes, Santiago Grasso’s, El Empleo, has won an impressive 102 awards at film festivals. The story is set in a delightfully fresh cartoon universe where people have taken over the...

I will be vindicated.And Patti far more modest:I don’t feel that I’m a celebrity …[but] In this terrible economic time, I feel it’s...
