Gay Marriage vs. Religious Freedom: A proposed solution (part 2)

Art Under the Occupation: The Bethlehem Wall

“During a recent visit for a peacemakers’ conference in Bethlehem, I had a chance to see the wall and experience the checkpoints firsthand. While it was heartbreaking to see the collective punishment inflicted on the majority of residents who had nothing to do with the violence of the Intifada and who sincerely desire to live peaceful lives alongside their Israeli neighbors, it was also inspiring to see how many are committed to strictly non-violent means of protest and engagement in the peacemaking process.

Live to Fight…with a UFC Champ!

There would also be a surprise guest…who wasn’t too keen on all this no-gi stuff, and would have some words for Mr. Weidman before the day was over!”
