You Poor, Outnumbered Soul...

I was, my day off having hitherto bored me, browsing the Macleans website, when I stumbled across a roll of photos from Ottawa's last pride parade.

Among the other pictures, I found this one particularly heart-warming. Take note of the lone protester to your left.

I actually felt kind of sorry for the guy. He must be feeling awfully inadequate, with his drab, black-and-white sign.

So it was a bittersweet kind of heartwarming.
That is, if heartwarming could possess taste.
Which it can't.

So, to summarize, I'm feeling pretty good about it all, right now.

Anyone else have something to say about it?

In his mind, Jesus is standing next to him, though. Of course, hanging out with a majority of men and women of questionable reputations was sort of Jesus's thing...

Only if it was from a woman,

Only if it was from a woman, though. Jesus did not approve of man-hugs.


Be yourself. 'Cause if you're busy being somebody else, who's gonna be you?

Are we sure he's protesting

Are we sure he's protesting and not just pulling a new twist on an old favorite? Maybe he's just a very literal person is the loneliest number......

Well, if he is just being literal about it, he's doing it in an awfully muted shade of pink.
