I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”
I want her to president of the world.
We’re all doing this, yes? Because we’re breathing human beings with souls, correct? Good.
Happy 614 Day, Columbus. Please make me proud of you.
A local politician says he was asked to step aside as the commencement speaker at a Catholic high school in Columbus because he has been an advocate for same-sex marriage rights. Franklin County Commissioner John O’Grady offered the explanation yesterday after a parent told The Dispatch he had failed to show up at Saturday’s graduation at Bishop Ready High School on the Hilltop.
Ok, this is fucked. Thoughts: A) the principal’s name is Seamen. That’s inherently hilarious. B) It’s the same diocese that fired an experienced and beloved Bishop Watterson teacher for being a lesbian earlier this year. C) Does the Columbus diocese and the administration of Bishop Ready really think that treating a dedicated alumnus of their school like this encourages loyalty in the class O’Grady was to address? Uhhhhhhhhhh….no. You just told them that being liberal, loving, and HUMAN is not the way to get recognized by your old school. That’s whaaaaaaaaaack. The more I think about this, the faster my heart beats and the angrier I get. Imbeciles.
