Heart & Soul: If not for Judas

Even if you haven’t set foot in a Christian church for years, or never have, you have probably heard the name “Judas.”

Ever actually met someone named Judas? Probably not.

What do you think when you hear that name?

Judas Iscariot became the most hated man in Christian history. He is depicted as the man who betrayed and brought about the crucifixion of Jesus. He was often portrayed as treacherous, greedy and, thieving, to be despised by all “righteous” people.

RGOD2: Easter reflections on effects of Christian militancy on LGBT people

The Ugandan Interreligious Council, severely implicated in orchestrating the Anti-Homosexuality Act, was defunded by the U.S. government last week. Fomenting misinformation and discrimination on a national scale has cost them $6.5 million in faith-based contracts.

This follows the World Bank’s decision two weeks ago not to fund a $90 million capital investment in the Ugandan health care system because the government could not guarantee patient confidentiality or non-discrimination in equal access to care.

Life Matters: Get yourself together first

As we draw closer to Easter Sunday, I wonder have we really done some spiritual work that has bettered our lives. I hear people blaming and judging others all the time.

In Matthew 7: 3 says, “Why do you look at the straw in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the rafter in your own.”

This Scripture is a clear indication that we can’t spend time judging others until we are willing to deal with our own stuff.

Harvey Milk Forever Stamp to debut at White House ceremony

WASHINGTON -- Harvey Milk Day is May 22 in California, and on that day the White House will host the official first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony for the Harvey Milk Forever Stamp.

Heart & Soul: Waiting for spring

It was quite a winter. You may remember that we in Southern California had 80-degree days, followed by 60-degree days when we would complain bitterly to anyone who would listen about how we were freezing to death.

Other parts of North America had quite a winter as well. The Upper Midwest is still not very spring-like. Our friends in Milwaukee are still dealing with high 40s to low 50s as a high.
