On a Real Note...
I'm sure many of you have heard of the recent shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. I'm sure many of you [at least the Americans] have also heard of the Westboro Baptist Church. The Westboro Baptist Church is a hate group [only protected by their thinly-veiled defense of being a religious organization] infamous for protesting funerals and claiming that they were God's "judgment" for all of the sins that are happening in America--I'm sure you've all seen the "God Hates F**s" signs that they carry.
The Westboro Baptist Church is now planning on protesting the vigil that is being held for those killed in the Sandy Hook shooting. They're claiming that God has passed his judgment. These children [and adults] were innocent victims, and while the entire incident brings up the larger debate of gun control in America, right now, I believe the Westboro Baptist Church needs to be stopped.
Please, sign this petition
asking the Obama administration to legally recognize the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group. They've been allowed to be this hateful for far too long, and this is the tipping point.
On a Lighter Note
Hi, how has everyone been?
I'm about to go on winter break, and I'm sick of school, and I miss deviantART. I poked in on Skype a few days ago and had a brief conversation with Kath602
, my dear friend who I have neglected for far too long.
I haven't emoted in nearly a year. I don't know if I remember how to do it. But I have been dolling, so if you're interested, check out my alt account, WestSideSunrises
, to see some dolls I made and dolls I will be posting in the future.
Here's a sneak preview to encourage you all to come check it out:
How has everyone been otherwise?
