...I thought it a worth sharing specifically.

"The impulse to stand up against the state and go to jail, rather than serve, is an instinct for penance; To take on some of the suffering ot the world - to share in it".

Dorothy Day
February 1969

Dorothy Day was another person who was the personification of the word, "Christian". In the 1920's she and her spiritual mentor, the French peasant and philosopher, Peter Maurin, founded a newspaper called The Catholic Worker and that in her time she was viewed by many to be a dangerous radical. She was considered such a menace that J. Edgar Hoover even kept a file on her....(Charlie Chaplin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King and John Lennon also had files - that's pretty good company to be in!)

Dorothy Day not only dedicated her life to the poor and dispossessed, she lived among them and humbly counted herself as one of them... )

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]frankenroc)

The AFA (American Family Association) is expecting an overwhelming majority of respondents to say that they would be 'less likely' to do business with a company if they knew it supported the "homosexual agenda" - whatever that is.

So far, they are getting the results they seek. (Of course, it's more than likely they are only sending it where they will get the expected results.)

There's a 1-question survey at http://www.afa.net/petitions/businesses/businesses.asp

I just voted, and the other options only total about 8,000... while thee "less likely" option weighs in at over 180k.
