Sunday in Outer Blogness: Pride Edition!

james-mormons This photo (from Aussielicious, hat tip MoHoHawaii) is too funny! I love the look on the companion’s face as he helps usher in a new era of Mormon-homo understanding.

So it’s pride week — the 40th anniversary of Stonewall — with events all over! I posted my own photos of Europride 2009 (in Zrich), and I hope the good folks of Outer Blogness will post some photos of the pride events in SLC and elsewhere. Sterkwerks has had the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life by being “out” this pride weekend. On the other end of the spectrum, Jesus’ General presents a book report on How Hate Talk Radicalized the American Right.

And what about our apostate pride? Brent has been asked to resign from the church (or get bounced) — guess which he picked! Equality, being a “polite apostate” offers BYU students a helpful list of YouTube channels to check out (now that they may be allowed). And Saganist replies to a talk on “avoiding personal apostasy” by explaining that it comes down to evidence. (Speaking of evidence, How about that Book of Abraham? World-wide flood? Anyone up for the Jaredite barge challenge?)

And let’s close with a few heart-warming stories: a runner breaks the wall, and two dads learn lessons about the magic of kids and stories!

    lol, when I saw that pic, I was thinking, “Has that one guy already gotten started on his next “Men on a Mission” calendar?”

    didn’t think you started on calendars as early as June, but I could be wrong about that biz :3
