The De-evolution of Arkansas

Beth Arnold | Posted 03.30.2015 | Politics
Beth Arnold

In the Arkansas of my growing up, not only was smart good, but the prevailing philosophy was always to do the right thing, to show other people dignity, and to honor the common man. I'm sad to say that those days are gone. In today's Arkansas, we can't recognize a lie when it's spoon-fed to us, and we don't want to help anyone who isn't as white-bread as we are.

I call on all Christians to lay down your scriptures, dogmas, doctrines and interpretations long enough to learn how to love your neighbor as your self.

A Poem for the Haters This Valentine's Day

Allison Hope | Posted 02.13.2015 | Gay Voices
Allison Hope

Because Valentine's Day is all about love (and oppressive Roman emperors and corporate marketing), I figured why not write a love poem to all those LGBT haters out there. Because love conquers all, after all. And if doesn't, at least it makes them squirm.

ISIL Reminds Us Who Joins Terrorist Organizations and Why

The purpose of terrorism is, of course, to terrorize, and they are succeeding at that. Hundreds of thousands have now fled Iraq and Syria as a result of ISIL's unparalleled violence and mastery of social media. One has to ask: who would be susceptible to their recruitment?

Damn, Sam: Reaction of a Kansas Activist

Stephanie Mott | Posted 02.11.2015 | Gay Voices
Stephanie Mott

He does not speak for Kansas. He does not speak for God. Hate is not a Christian value. Hate is not a Kansas value. Hate is not an American value. The greatest possible gift I can give to this world is to be my true, authentic self. Sam Brownback has no power to change that.

Matthew 7, Leviticus 20, and the Christian Catch-22

Stephanie Mott | Posted 03.31.2015 | Gay Voices
Stephanie Mott

I am not anti-Christian when I stand up for LGBT rights. I am anti-bigotry. The fact that someone identifies as a Christian has nothing to do with it. There is no war on religion. It is a war on discrimination. Nothing more. Nothing less.

The Execution of Our Consciences

Rev. Jeff Hood | Posted 03.30.2015 | Religion
Rev. Jeff Hood

Though I expect more from our whole society, I am saddened and outraged that most of the executions in our country are carried out by states that are predominately Christian. In Georgia, people who claim to follow Jesus are largely responsible for executing Warren Hill.

Before you start shouting that "blacks are destroying everything that is white" or that "political correctness is destroying America," here is some historical fact that will prove otherwise.

The Taliban in the Self

Rev. Jeff Hood

How many children has our greed killed? How many children grow up without proper education? How many children are subjected to the slow deaths of racism, homophobia and sexism? How many children are dead because of our thirst for guns and violence? The questions can go on and on.

Religion aside, I firmly believe that those who argue that homosexuality is a choice do so in order to justify senseless beatings of gays and lesbians, and continued discrimination and mistreatment against them. I also believe without a doubt that it is a choice to be a nasty human being.

I think we need to understand that beneath the different skin colors, hair colors, languages, body sizes, shapes and our thoughts, we are all made the same way. Why, as humans, do we put a label on someone and assume that the person we are labeling is just that?
