The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.

Where to buy Gas??
I have one ultra conservative friend. I don't like her. I don't like anything about her. How can she be my friend? Great question. She's not really, but neither one of us will say it. I feel like if I walk away then she'll have something to spout about tolerance and if she walks away then she won't have any lesbian friends. It's not cool to live in CA and not have lesbian friends. So we keep each other. I'm thankful to get a first hand account of right-wing crazy. The ultra right is actually crazy. And she is ultra right wing (she dressed up like Sarah Palin for Halloween for the love of all things holy.) I have been all done with her many times, but still I stay. Her most recent offense was her employment with ExxonMobil. The Mobil part isn't so bad, but Exxon is the sole remaining Fortune 500 company that doesn't recognize sexual orientation in their discrimination policy and of course does not offer domestic partnership rights or benefits. Furthermore, when they acquired Mobil in 1999 they absorbed the employees but did not extend the policy of Mobil and so LGBT employees lost their benefits. Exxon sucks and now my right wing acquaintance gets her paycheck from them. A perfect match.
We are lesbians who seek to change the world one person at a time.
We are blogging to throw some light on some key problems for folks who might not see or believe mainstream news outlets (not that mainstream news outlets always concern themselves with what we think they should).
We have a few ideas about making the neighbors who share this gift-place planet more neighborly.
And sometimes (everyday) we'll throw in some political fun - because if politics is anything, it's fun.
There were 2 flames here at Fire. We have worshiped each other and now a blue flame burns. Think "Strange Fire" by the Indigo Girls.
Flint is our political contributor. She has lived all over the world, worked in D.C. and needs to go back. Our world would be a better place if she did. Flint will always write in this font - straightforward and without frills. She seeks to ignite you.
Blaze is our human interest contributor. She will bring you the personal stories of those affected by Flint's issues. Blaze will always write in italics - softer and with more flair (no pun intended). She seeks to move you.
