“We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred is a wedge disguised to attack our civilization.”

“Harry Truman once said, ‘There are 14 or 15 million Americans who have the resources to have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, and that the interests of the great mass of the other people — the 150 or 160 million — is the responsibility of the President of the United States, and I propose to fulfill it.’”

San Diego holds kiss-in Wed., July 22, at Mormon temple in solidarity with Salt Lake City gay, het couples’ 2 kiss-in protests

San Diego group plans ‘Kiss-In’ protest at big Mormon temple
By and The Associated Press
Jul 21 2009

Date: Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Time: 5:00pm – 6:30pm
Location: San Diego Mormon Temple
Street: 7474 Charmant Drive
City: San Diego, CA 92122
Please RSVP here.

An equal rights group in San Diego plans to stage a mass kissing demonstration outside the San Diego Mormon temple as a show of support for a gay couple insulted, man-handled and handcuffed in Utah by “temple police” and cited by Salt Lake City Police for trespassing after sharing a kiss on so-called “temple property”.

The Empowering Spirits Foundation says the “kiss-in” is intended as a peaceful rally to encourage dialogue between Mormons and the gay community.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday evening at 5:00 p.m. at an enormous Mormon temple on a hill overlooking the freeway near La Jolla, Calif.

Two “kiss-in” protests have already been held, including both opposite-gender and same-gender couples, since Matt Aune and Derek Jones were cited on July 9 for trespassing on property still called Main Street Plaza in downtown Salt Lake City, the sale of which (along with all public easements onto the formerly, still visually, public property) to the Mormon religion the Mormon-majority city council of Salt Lake City inappropriately orchestrated, and the Mormon-majority courts in Utah upheld.

21st Annual Kris Amorosi Memorial Bingo Run Aug 2 2009!

POST-BINGO RUN UPDATE at end of post

Attention! Are You Ready? August 2 2009
21st Annual Kris Amoresi Memorial Bingo Run!

You don’t have to be a biker or even attend the Bingo Run
to help Cameron, who’s on the ride of his very young life.
AMA-sanctioned, cars welcome!

All donations accepted.
Please call Sandy at 518-792-1713

This year you’ll be helping a five-month-old boy from Queensbury, in upstate New York.

Cameron Quartiers was born four months premature. He weighed 1 lb. 3 oz. and was 11 inches long. He has a lot of growing to do. He had open heart surgery at three weeks of age. He is still in Albany Medical with several other medical issues. He has a two-year-old sister, Schuyler.

The costs of daily trips to Albany, medical bills, getting the special equipment for his care when he comes home, etc., are some of the things that put a strain on the family.

Can you make sure this is the best Annual Kris Amorsi Memorial Bingo Run the Adirondack Riders Motorcycle Club (A.M.A. District 3) has ever put on? Can you make sure that Cameron and his family are blown away by how much love the people in this world are willing to show them? Thanks!
