    Why does Google let pastors like Anderson call for our murder on YouTube?
    Is it because they farm out complaint checking to homophobic countries?
    Should we really trust Google when they speak out of both sides of their mouth?

      Most social media allow some degree of free speech, even though they’re not required to as private entities. I have no problem with that. We’re more aware and vigilant if we can witness their hate, and it provides an opportunity to counter their voice. But if they’re banned, I wouldn’t shed any tears either.

        It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.-Sun Tzu

    Dear Google,
    Very cool technology. Also, thank you for disabling the comments.

    I guess this will have to do for now. Las Vegas doesn’t throw its Pride Parade until late September (three digit heat sort of makes it unwise to parade down asphalt streets in June). But we’ll be in the other hemisphere when that happens. So, won’t be being all prideful until Nov. 7th, when BsAs has it’s spring pride parade. It gets more interesting every year.

      I will be live-casting on Facebook from the front seat of the Grand Marshal car in Chicago’s Pride Parade on Sunday. You can watch ours from there if you want to experience it that way. Otherwise, I guess you get to wait.

    OK – how long will it take for NOM to appropriate this video as being taken at their Marriage March this weekend?

    Gotta say this is cool.
    My husband and I have driven the Grand Marshal car for the past 5 years in Chicago’s Pride Parade and we will be doing it again on Sunday.
    In the past this has been the highlight of my year and something I always look forward to with immense pride. I gotta say, though, this year I sort of feel like we are possibly in the cross hairs of someone’s gun sight. Driving the Grand Marshal we would be an obvious ground zero. Even more concern is that this year our daughters are going to participate with us and carry a banner a few feet behind the car. So I have my concerns.
    But, this is Pride month and I figure either I’m proud of who I am or I’m not. So we are going ahead with it but not without concerns. At least on my part.
    And, FYI, I plan on live-casting from Facebook while we are in the heart of the parade going through Boystown.

      How awesome! The wife and I were part of the Pride parade in Baltimore for 5 years. We drove and marched. This year we are looking forward to not being in it and not so busy that we miss everything else. We get to be just 2 old ladies holding hands and checking out all the booty….I mean beauty that strolls by. Our parade is not until July this year.

    Also, thank you for giving the Google maps guy a little rainbow cape for pride!
