  • Dialogue should win over silence

    The Jewish Advocate ^ | May 11 | Janet Tassel
    April 25, the 27th of Nissan, was Yom Hashoah, the day to remember (zachor) the millions who perished in the Holocaust. In Israel, every year on that day at 10 a.m. sirens wail throughout the land. Everything stops, including businesses and public transportation. Everyone in Israel stands in total silence for at least two minutes. Silence, in traditional Judaism, is the most heartfelt way to commiserate with those who mourn, at least until the mourner himself wants the silence broken. In the Diaspora, Yom Hashoah is observed in various ways, primarily by the Jewish community – but not commonly with...

    Police toss him for taking photos The 16th annual conference of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) of Boston took place with little controversy April 29 at Harvard University, but not for lack of trying by the Newton-based anti-gay activist group Article 8 Alliance. One member of the group, who declined to give his name to Bay Windows, was ejected early in the day by university police. “He was taking photographs when it was explicitly posted, prohibited, so he was asked to go,” said GLSEN Boston Executive Director Sean Haley. Haley said the Article 8 member was also...

    Families File Lawsuit Over Gay Books In School Couples Say Civil Rights Violated, Laws Broken BOSTON -- Two Lexington families on Thursday filed a federal lawsuit claiming school administrators violated their civil rights and broke state law when they distributed and read two storybooks that depict gay relationships to their children without prior notification. David and Tonia Parker and Joseph and Robin Wirthlin argue in their lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Boston that their children were being indoctrinated about a lifestyle they consider immoral, bypassing their right to raise their children how they wish. The Wirthlins complained to...

    Pro-Marriage Advocates Victims of Systematic Harassment, Says Mass.

    Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has raised the level of rhetoric and insulted religious Catholics across the state by telling a homosexual newspaper this week that those who want to enforce the Church's teachings and instructions are, in his words, "hateful." Catholic Charities, an arm of the Archdiocese of Boston but run by a separate (and unfortunately, left-wing) board of directors, had announced that it was honoring Mayor Menino at its annual fund-raising dinner to be held next Friday, Dec. 9, at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Many religious Catholics were outraged and communicated with Archbishop Sean O'Malley that he should not...

  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

People across the country - including Massachusetts and even in Lexington - are still in shock. One would think it would cause a community to embark on some thoughtful introspection. But instead, a relatively small but very vocal (and angry) group of people has undertaken a campaign of hysteria, lies, fear, and intimidation to discredit and demonize David Parker, his family, and anyone associated with him, including other parents who came to his side, Pastor Jed Snyder of Countryside...

    WALTHAM -- The chief justice of the state Supreme Judicial Court said yesterday that rhetoric about judges destroying the country and the suggestion that court decisions should conform to public opinion are threatening public trust in the judicial system, a cornerstone of democracy. Justice Margaret H. Marshall, who has been widely criticized as a judicial activist since writing the court's 2003 decision allowing same-sex marriage, spoke before a crowd of 7,000 at Brandeis University's 54th commencement. A native of South Africa who fought apartheid before coming to the United States, she said she is not concerned about criticism of individual...

    A woman dressed as Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Margaret Marshall ripped a copy of the state constitution in half, then stood on it. Brian Camenker, leader of the Article 8 Alliance, said the court used "unintelligible reasoning" to rewrite state law. "Since that fraudulent ruling, the people of Massachusetts are living under a reign of madness," he said. "The effect of this perceived law has been the forced normalization of homosexuality on the people of Massachusetts, and harsh intimidation against those who don't go along."

    And since the MSJC ruling, Camenker points out, parents can no longer opt their children out of pro-homosexual lessons and activities in school. During school assemblies, he asserts, speakers will come in and tell the young people gathered "that the Bible's prohibitions on homosexuality are essentially misinterpretations, and if your parents believe them then they're wrong."

John Kerry (news - web sites) ended his presidential campaign with more than $15 million in the bank, money that could have helped Democratic candidates across the country. Some said he will be pressured to give the money to Democratic campaign committees rather than save it for a potential White House bid in 2008. "Democrats are questioning why he sat on so much money that could have helped him defeat George Bush (news - web sites) or helped down-ballot races, many of which could have gone our...

    (The) "nuclear option," (is) a parliamentary maneuver to effectively change Senate rules so that only a simple majority is needed to end a filibuster of a judicial nominee. Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said he has not decided whether he would invoke that option next year. Robert F. Bennett, R-Utah, the chief deputy majority whip, said such a move would occur only if Democrats filibuster a Supreme Court nomination. It's the last paragraph in the source link.

That's what's been happening in Somerville and Medford over the past few weeks.      Carl Sciortino was able to squeak by Rep.
