NEW HAVEN, CT – In an effort to recognize the diverse traditions of the holiday season, the City has installed a Festivus pole in the Market Street square. A dedication ceremony is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. With the addition of this new holiday centerpiece, the square is now thought to be the most diverse public display of late fall holiday symbols in the country…

To: devistate one fourActually it is the Asherah pole that was danced around during pagan times. People were offered up to the pole and killed. Sexual dancing, sex acts and general nakedness and drunkenness were also part of the Asherah poles worship.
Eskimo totems poles are a more modern version

“Washington, D.C. – On January 20th, President-elect Barack Obama will take the oath of office using the same Bible upon which President Lincoln was sworn in at his first inauguration. The Bible is currently part of the collections of the Library of Congress. Though there is no constitutional requirement for the use of a Bible during the swearing-in, Presidents have traditionally used Bibles for the ceremony, choosing a volume with personal or historical significance. President-elect Obama will be the first President sworn in using the Lincoln Bible since its initial use in 1861.
‘President-elect Obama is deeply honored that the Library of Congress has made the Lincoln Bible available for use during his swearing-in,’ said Presidential Inaugural Committee Executive Director Emmett Beliveau. ‘The President-elect is committed to holding an Inauguration that celebrates America’s unity, and the use of this historic Bible will provide a powerful connection to our common past and common heritage.’ “

To: rightwingintelligentsiaHis EGO knows NO BOUNDS? Then again,Obama’s Ignorance of American history is showing. Does Obama understand that Lincoln looked down on Blacks? Lincoln did not want Blacks to be kept in the USA. Lincoln wanted to buy them from the planters and send the blacks back to Africa.
In a way, this is rather amusing.

SAN FRANCISCO — A woman in the San Francisco Bay area was jumped by four men, taunted for being a lesbian, repeatedly raped and left naked outside an abandoned apartment building, authorities said Monday.
Detectives say the 28-year-old victim was attacked Dec. 13 after she got out of her car, which bore a rainbow gay pride sticker. The men, who ranged from their late teens to their 30s, made comments indicating they knew her sexual orientation, said Richmond police Lt. Mark Gagan.
“It just pushes it beyond fathomable,” he said. “The level of trauma — physical and emotional — this victim has suffered is extreme.”
Authorities are characterizing the attack as a hate crime but declined to reveal why they think the woman was singled out because of her sexual orientation. Gagan would say only that the victim lived openly with a female partner and had a rainbow flag sticker on her car.
The 45-minute attack began when one of the men approached the woman as she crossed the street, struck her with a blunt object, ordered her to disrobe and sexually assaulted her on the spot with the help of the other men.
When the group saw another person approaching, they forced the victim back into her car and took her to a burned-out apartment building, where she was raped again inside and outside the vehicle. The assailants took her wallet and drove off in her car. Officers found the car abandoned two days later.
The woman sought help from a nearby resident, and she was examined at a hospital. Although the victim said she did not know her attackers, detectives hope someone in the community knows them. One of the men went by the nickname “Blue” and another was called “Pato,” according to authorities

To: sean327No one does deserve what happened to this woman. Having said that, the bookies would probably give you odds that this will be treated as a ‘hate crime’, with the attendant sturm und drang that would not follow if the woman was a self-proclaimed heterosexual. Even though that woman’s rape would be no less brutal.8 posted onTuesday, December 23, 2008 7:38:11 AM byPzLdr (“The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am” – Darth Vader)To: PzLdrI don’t like the so called Hate Crime designations either.

But plastered all over in the story, is that she’s a lesbian, has that stupid flag plastered on her car.
If she wanted to be a lesbian, fine. Not a problem. The point is that: why does she need to advertise it?
Isn’t such advertisement an invitation to rebuttal?
These scumbags decided to give her a counter argument.
I don’t agree with what they did, but the story is, that a woman was raped. Period. The motivation of the perpetrators is irrelevant, yet this story is all about raising awareness, isn’t it.
I’m quite tired of having my awareness raised.
