AN OPEN GAY RIGHTS CONVERSATION

Audio: 

Every once in a while, a conversation arises on Ticked Off Tuesday that really makes me think. Such was the case when a listener called in about an experience with a local establishment in which she believed she was turned away on the basis of her sexual orientation. What followed was something we see less and less of these days in an era of popular culture groupthink--a genuine, heartfelt, civil discussion on what has become a very divisive issue.

Groupthink does not change minds; rather, all too often it simply creates resentment and drives true feelings underground. The result is not transformation, it is division.

Click the above link to hear more about this conversation, and why our society is in desperate need of more like it.

Recently released statistics show that immigration to the United States has accounted for 82% of the population growth over the past 8 years.

This may be an alarming fact to a number of people, especially conservatives who do not trust President Obama on this issue. The fact is, however, that this trend has been going on for decades.
