I Believe in the Power of Love

Yesterday while driving the better half and I were discussing our experiences  with discrimination as gay men, his experiences as a Latino and my experience as a white male. Being gay men we can empathize about discrimination to a point, but we agreed we can never fully understand what it is to be black.

What we can do is acknowledge that we don’t have the same plight, but we can stand for what is right. We can speak out against injustice. We can love, support and stand with our black brothers and sisters. We can believe in the power of Love.

Power of Love – Deee-Lite – 1990

Why Love? The answer us given to us by one if our greatest inspirations.

It’s Time

A message from the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” …..Martin Niemöller

Speak out now before there is no one left to speak for you. Your life really does depend on it.

Header

I like to change my header often to something relevant to a day, season, event or mood.

Today I am changing my header from Ft. Lauderdale Beach, where I presently am, to one I have used before when we found ourselves in societal situations that necessitated my pointing out that we must stand up for righteousness. The words in this header are as follows:

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” …..Martin Niemöller

To say that I am disgusted with the leadership of this country at this very moment is an understatement. I try not to focus on it and to look for the good where I can. However I have decided that instead of changing to match seasons, events or moods …Fearsome Beard’s header from this moment forward will remain the above quote  until this FUCKING POLITICAL NIGHTMARE is over.

The character of a society will be judged by how well that society cares for the least among them.

Now I will leave Dolly’s remake of a Cat Stevens classic below as I need hope for our future.

Thank You Pete

Fearsome and I wish to personally say Thank You to Pete Buttigieg for turning his life upside down during his history making and ground breaking run for President. Pete, you are a role model. We also wish to thank Chasten for his loving support of his husband’s candidacy. Chasten, you are a role model.

We thank you both for living your truth and working to better not only our country but to better the lives for all of it’s citizens.

We know that this isn’t goodbye, but the turning of a page into a new chapter of your life changing inspirational leadership toward a better future. With you two in our world we know it’s gonna be bright!

Anti war

We here at Fearsome Beard do not believe in war. We do not believe in guns. We do not believe in a supreme religion. (We believe that people have a right to practice a religion if they so choose, but they do not have the right to call their religion supreme to all other beliefs or non-beliefs nor force it upon others.)

We believe in peace. We believe in respect. We believe in truth, honesty, integrity, character and fidelity.

We do not support the actions taken by our government today. We do not support the individual who made that decision, nor do we support those who are complicit in this crime against humanity, civilization and our planet.

Had it!

How I am currently feeling?

I can honestly say that I’ve had it with this current U.S. asshole regime (read complicit republicans) protecting it’s supreme criminal asshole.

ITMFA!

Please stand with your Trans Brothers and Sisters

James Corden made this video when the stirrings of the threat to oust our Trans brothers and sisters from the military. Unfortunately that then threat is now real.

Unfortunately the threat deepens as that “administration” has decided to push the discrimination further by now attempting to sway the SCOTUS to rule that title VII does not extend to sexual identity therefore enshrining discrimination via precedent. In other words the executive branch pressuring the judicial branch to interpret that anyone can discriminate against and fire (or deny housing to, or, or, or…) someone for simply being transgender. Anyone or any entity.

Please stand with your fellow human beings, in our very communities, who are simply living their lives, living them to the best of their abilities. What’s in between anyone’s legs is between them and their god or non-god. Period.

Oh, and mark my words, they aren’t planning on stopping here.

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—                                                              Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

…Martin Niemöller

Hail Satan?

Squeeeee! It’s finally out on iTunes.

Hail Satan? The official documentary about The Satanic Temple.

Yes I bought it and have already watched it. I give it two thumbs up and Fearsome gave it two mustache tips up. It’s informative, fun and often hilarious.

Highly recommended.

Hail Satan.
