Ford’s Confidential Agreement with American Family Association…
Does it mark a new era in the battle between conservative evangelical organizations and LGBT peoples?

The answer is a resounding no! They’ve boycotted various companies before. It wasn’t so long ago that the Southern Baptist Church and other evangelicals boycotted Disney. It is, however, frustrating that Ford gave into the religious bigots. I refuse to go on a rant at this point. Nevertheless, every Christian person of a not prejudiced persuasion who values his/her freedom should go to GLAAD on line in order to see what can be done to rectify the current situation.

My New Family Photo Album

I often refer to the foil man, Rebecca, and other family members and friends in my journal entries. I have occasionally included images of these in various entries, but of course, over time, they end up buried in my cyber-ramblings. So, I have visited the professor’s museum in Pittsburgh twice during the past year. While there I made copies in the museum basement of his files that catalogue my old black and white photographs from the 1950's and 60's. During this past week I opened a new blog and named it “Isaac’s Family Album.” I linked the album to this journal. The link is located near the top of the column to the right. I shall be adding pages of photographs and text to the album as I have time to create them, and I hope readers will enjoy them.

Friends Service Committee and Habitat for Humanity


I’m still plugging American Friends Service Committee for relief along the Gulf Coast. Long term help is necessary to return the poor to their parishes along the Gulf Coast, and repair the damage done to those neighborhoods that gave New Orleans it’s cuisine and culture. Soon, the Red Cross and other emergency organizations will move on to new crises. The Friends are much more likely to do good things for the unfortunate people of the region than anyone I can think of. They do not discriminate, and they will not proselytize while helping those who wish to reestablish themselves. Also, think about donating money and/or your own time and skills to Habitat for humanity. That organization will be called on to help the poor rebuild their homes, I’m sure.
