I didn’t plan to write about the Mass Moral March, (also known as HKonJ) which took place this last weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina. But I was chided by another minister for tweeting about the Olympics opening ceremony, when the Raleigh march was surely more weighty and deserving material. I demurred, but I thought I… Continue reading On the Moral March
A seminary classmate, the Rev. Martha Brown, contacted me to reach out to North Carolina Unitarian Universalists about a television project she’s working on. If you have “first-person accounts from North Carolinians who participated in the legendary March on Washington” please keep reading and contact her to participate in the video production. I removed the… Continue reading Calling North Carolina Unitarian Universalists…
ObscuraCam is a phone app for Android to help citizen-journalists obscure faces in crowd photographs and videos, say, in undemocratic societies. It might be helpful in building your church’s website. You can use it to hide the faces of minors and other vulnerable persons, should your church’s policies require or recommend it. Two examples: Your… Continue reading ObscuraCam to help build church web sites

Last week, the Maryland Attorney General announced that, barring court action, the same-sex marriages contracted in other jurisdictions would be recognized in Maryland. This is good news… Continue reading The bigger winners today in D.C. . . .
Interfaith Worker Justice tomorrow launches a Web site called “Can My Boss Do That?” — a worker-oriented resource that uses a question-and-answer format to address labor rights.

From a design point-of-view, I like how (1) it warns workers that employers might… Continue reading “Can my boss do that?”
The Human Rights Campaign has been a continuing disappointment: for such a (allegedly) large organization, it seems to get so little done in the field of GLBT freedoms. Their headquarters is about half-way between my old apartment and my office, and I left scratching my head when I saw it. What did they do, apart… Continue reading Saying no to the HRC to say yes to gay rights
Towleroad reports that the “No on Prop 8” Web site received a denial-of-service attack last night. Just the kind of thing you’d expect from the no-holds-barred opponents of same-sex marriage. Why? Surely because No on Prop 8 is raising money through that site. I donated last night before that attack, but used the Better Democrats… Continue reading “No on Prop 8” site attacked
O joy, o rapture! Metro has started random searches. Sounds like security theater to me, and I don’t intend to be a part of it. (Gladly, I walk to work and most shops.) If you enter a Metro station where a screening is taking place — they come before the fare gates — you have… Continue reading I do not consent to being searched in Metro
