Dear America (and any of my international friends who may be reading this):

Since Friday, I’ve seen many opinions on the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage everywhere in the nation. From the viewpoint of social media, people have never been so divided over any single issue. In the light of these divisions, someone needs to speak some truths. That someone may as well be me, so here goes.

From PJ Tatler: It’s Time For Southerners To Choose Their Battles

As I write this, I’m sitting on the balcony of a condo in Panama City Beach, an area affectionately known as the Redneck Riviera and, yes, one of the ten most overrated destinations in the South according to a post I wrote last year. I’m on vacation, so for the most part I’ve tried to disconnect from the rest of the world. But I can’t escape the Confederate flag.

Not long ago, I wrote about Cracked.com‘s unfunny TED Talks parody of Walt Disney. The writer of the video filled it with so much knee-jerk character assassination that it took me two posts to refute the abject lies, all of which were meant to make Walt Disney look like a bigot and all-around bad guy.

As the Church of England prepares to install its first female bishop this year, church leaders are growing bolder and louder in their call for the use of feminine language to describe God. Some of them are even going so far as to refer to Jesus, a historical figure – and a man – as “Jesa Christa.”

From PJ Lifestyle: The Future in Tomorrowland is Bright, Optimistic, and Fun — Just Like Walt Disney Envisioned It!

maxresdefault

Tomorrowland was one of the three movies I was looking forward to this year. (The others? SPECTRE and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.) Tomorrowland presents an exhilarating vision of what could be that matches what I call the optimistic futurism of the studio’s founder, Walt Disney… As I walked out of the theater at the end of the film with my friend, I turned to her and said, “I wonder what people who aren’t familiar with Walt Disney’s futurism will think of it?”
