Interesting news on the X-Men movie buzz.
Sexy Channing Tatum has been talking to X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about a possible Gambit film. Now, if you don't know who Gambit is, here's a quick and dirty: He's a hot and mysterious Cajun mutant who can control and manipulate pure kinetic energy to his will. He is also very skilled in card-throwing, hand-to-hand combat, and the use of a bō.
Okay, so he's been talking to Fox's X-Team and this is what he had to say:
"I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him. He’s just kind of suave…
He’s the most un X-Men X-Man that’s ever been in X-Men. Other than maybe Wolverine, who’s like the anti-hero. He’s a thief. He’s not even a hero. He’s kind of walking the line of grey. He loves women and drinking and smoking and stuff, so he’s just a cool guy who happens to have a moral center. I hope it [comes together]. You never know it’s a weird industry. If the stars align, I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment."
Well, I never thought of Channing in this role... Can he pull it off?
NY City Councilman Daniel Dromm was told that Chick-Fil-A has plans to come to NYC. Well, he wasn't feeling that and said:
We don't need bigots coming to New York City. They are not welcome here unless they can embrace all of New York's diverse community, including the LGBT community. [...] We don't need bigoted people even keeping their opinions to themselves. They need to wake up and see reality.Granted Chick-Fil-A is changing their ways, but that doesn't matter to Daniel.
So once this got out, NOM's Shoney's Boy Brian Brown lost it and wrote a post about it on his blog. He said:
"Stay out of New York City. That is effectively the message that a City Councilman named Daniel Dromm has sent to you, me, and millions of pro-marriage Americans — including the millions who already live in the city that never sleeps. And none of us, least of all New Yorkers, can allow ourselves to remain silent about it. What spurred Dromm's remarks? The announcement that Chick-fil-A had plans to expand its operations into New York City. Dromm is one of those intolerant few who still cling bitterly to a misremembered moment in 2012 when Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy was reported in the press expressing his personal belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. In Dromm's and others' imaginations, this meant that Chick-fil-A was an 'anti-gay company' and that Cathy and the many thousands who work for him deserve punishment."Brian is trying to raise money off this non-drama, but hopefully, it won't get him much.

This is why religious freaks needs to be place in their own little corner.
Pastor Mark Biltz is crazy. Crazy enough to believe President Obama caused the Blood Moon.
Barack Obama quite recently, expressing his frustration that Republican members of Congress won’t give him what he wants, threatened arbitrary executive action, promising that he has a “pen and phone.”
But there are “flashing red warning lights” in the heavens that should command peoples’ attention right now, because the one behind those warnings, God, had “more than a pen and a phone in his hand,” according to the author of “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs. I believe that the blood moons have great historic and prophetic significance just as they did following 1948 and 1967. In the book of Joel it mentions three times about the sun and the moon going dark and in context it also mentions Divine wrath against all countries that want to divide or part the land of Israel.
I believe the moons are like flashing red warning lights at a heavenly intersection saying to Israel as well as the nations they will be crossing heavenly red lines and if they do, they will understand as Pharaoh did on Passover night 3,500 years ago that the Creator backs up what He says. “Like Pharaoh the leaders and pundits of today will realize when it comes to crossing the red lines of the Creator of the universe he has more than a pen and a phone in his hand.”Somebody pray for Mark
India's Supreme Court has somewhat made history. They are now recognizing transgender people as a third gender.
According to the BBC News, India has about two million transgender people. The common term used to describe the transgender community is hijra.
Here's more from the BBC
"Recognition of transgenders as a third gender is not a social or medical issue but a human rights issue," Justice KS Radhakrishnan, who headed the two-judge Supreme Court bench, said in his ruling on Tuesday.I have a new clip of the ruling after the jump
"Transgenders are also citizens of India" and they must be "provided equal opportunity to grow", the court said.
"The spirit of the Constitution is to provide equal opportunity to every citizen to grow and attain their potential, irrespective of caste, religion or gender."
The judges asked the government to treat them in line with other minorities officially categorised as "socially and economically backward", to enable them to get quotas in jobs and education.
"We are quite thrilled by the judgement," Anita Shenoy, lawyer for the petitioner National Legal Services Authority (Nalsa), told the BBC.
