New Life member Andrew Schmidt, a 1999-2001 twentyfourseven intern, says Beard may have been caught up in the hypervigilance surrounding New Life after Haggard’s fall.
“I just know that Christopher has always been a good friend to me,” Schmidt said. “It’s unfortunate that things have happened this way.”
"Donors of $1,000 or more get a scale model of Dove One and their names inscribed inside the plane, Hinn said."
"Nearly one in four U.S. troops (23%) say they know for sure that someone in their unit is gay or lesbian, and of those 59% said they learned about the person's sexual orientation directly from the individual, a Zogby International poll of troops who served in Iraq and Afghanistan shows.
More than half (55%) of the troops who know a gay peer said the presence of gays or lesbians in their unit is well known by others. According to the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy, service members are not allowed to say that they are gay.
...According [to] Congressman Marty Meehan (D-MA), 'These new data prove that thousands of gay and lesbian service members are already deployed overseas and are integrated, important members of their units. It is long past time to strike down "Don't Ask, Don't Tell'" and create a new policy that allows gays and lesbians to serve openly.'
...The data also indicate that military attitudes about homosexuality have shifted. In the early 1990's, many senior officers argued that U.S. troops could not form bonds of trust with gays and lesbians, according to Dr. Aaron Belkin, Director of the Palm Center, who has written widely on the subject. According to the new Zogby data, however, nearly three in four troops (73%) say they are personally comfortable in the presence of gays and lesbians."
"The L-Word creator and executive producer Ilene Chaiken has announced plans to launch OurChart, a website aimed at bringing lesbians of all ilk together."
If I never posted another word on metafilter, if in fact I never existed, it would not change God's opinion on what sin is.
