OSU's Hillel & Real LGBTQ Homophobia ("Homophobia" Being Actually Discriminating Against Someone Simply For Being LGBTQ)

Ohio State University's branch of Hillel engaged in discrimination against LGBTQ students and other LGBTQ people in Ohio. Nowhere in Tanakh (also know as "The Old Testament" or "The Hebrew Bible") does it read, "Thou shalt cut off from thyselves any woman whose heart desireth not a man, and any man whose heart desireth not a woman."

One can oppose the LGBTQ lifestyle (e.g., "Thou shalt not lie with a man as one lies with a woman...") without discriminating against LGBTQ people ("I desire mercy over sacrifice...").

Please remind OSU's branch of Hillel to love their neighbors, including LGBTQ neighbors, as themselves.

Originally On LinkedIn: Facebook, Its TOS, and Algorithms?

A while back, a Facebook friend told me that Facebook apparently enforces its TOS by using algorithms. Algorithms—a well-over-$1-Million company uses algorithms to enforce its TOS?


"I believe the maker of facebook is sexist and racist. Something should be done about it. I got in trouble for swearing at a racist but he didnt get in trouble for being racist. Something is so wrong with that"
I wish that I could've replied to her comment with the observation that its more that Facebook is evidently not hiring enough people to enforce its TOS—and while I grant that there are multiple TOS-violation reports a day, I also grant that there are:


  1. Many people looking for jobs.
  2. People like me whom'd be glad to have a job helping Facebook enforce its own TOS, especially since many of us have been affected by TOS violators. As for me, I live in Maryland and could help enforce Facebook's TOS virtually—I can't drive (since I have Cerebral Palsy) and, while I'm working on being an author and analyst-commentator, would love to be off of SSI benefits as well to help Facebook crack down the kind of, e.g., ableism and Anti Semitism by which I've been affected. Of course, I have to be prepared for the reality that Facebook will see me as nothing more than my Cerebral Palsy and what mental illnesses I have—after all, why would Facebook see me as any different since they often don't care when an individual with a disability is attacked by a TOS violator?
  3. TOS violations that are so egregious, they've had to be reported to the FBI since Facebook wouldn't deal with them—and I remember that the FBI emailed me back per one threat that I reported and told me that I needed to forward the threat report to the Secret Service.
  4. Too many instances in which Facebook even restores accounts and pages of TOS violators—and one page that they restored involved a threat against Hillary Clinton, while another on which someone reported content posted an obscene "**** Facebook" meme regarding when Facebook actually did enforce their TOS.
Since Facebook probably won't hire me, though (See Point Two and consider the case of Katie Shoener in a non-Facebook field.), they could at least consider what I've written here & hire others whom are looking for jobs.

A Few Reasons That YouTube Needs To Restore Its Webcam-Upload Technology, Or In Short....

Some people literally used the YouTube webcam-upload technology to make their livings, or at least parts of their livings, sometimes even as YouTube partners. Other people used the YouTube webcam-upload technology to try to get their foots in the doors, and even others used the webcam-upload technology to open up their professional—and personal—worlds to others, and quite often to help others.

Examples include:


  1. Myself. I'm trying to get my foot in the door, help others, etc.—a number of videos talk about subjects that I cover in "The Real Stories"
  2. Guitar teacher and worship leader Daniel Choo—unless I speak out of turn and arrogance, I can reasonably ascertain that Daniel Choo had an easier time doing more-frequent covers when the webcam technology was available. By the way, I'm merely citing Daniel as an example.
  3. Greta van Susteren—unless I speak out of turn and arrogance, I can reasonably ascertain that even Great van Susteren had an easier time making more frequent "Gretawire" videos.
With one laywoman and two professionals being cases in point as to why YouTube was wrong to discontinue the use of its webcam-upload technology, the cited laywoman in question asks that you ask YouTube to restore a vital uploading means for everyone from the layperson whom doesn't have fancy studio- and on-location equipment, to the professional whom can increase the accessibility of his or her professional world

YouTube Needs To Restore Its Webcam-Upload Technology

That is all.

Close To Death...And Would Blue Cross/Blue Shield Let Sophia Die?!

Would Blue Cross/Blue Shield have denied me because of my Cerebral Palsy (e.g., my ITB Pump) and other conditions? Why, then, would they deny Sophia? "Sophia was born 3 months early and spent 71 days in the NICU."

I was in Sophia's position. Diagnosed at 1.5 years old with Mild Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy, I had a Category-Three brainbleed that caused my CP on January 24, 1990 (and this was after I was born on January 23, 1990). I spent 75 days in the NICU because of it. I had come home on April 7, 1990; apparently unable to walk, talk, write, etc..



I beat the odds. Sophia did, too. Why doesn't Blue Cross/Blue Shield get that? Do they want her to die? They didn't want me to die (though, scarily, they might have were I born nowadays).

Why One Change.org Petition To Facebook Matters On July 4th

We still need 96% more of 1,000 people against racism, sexism, and other abusiveness on Facebook. 4% just doesn't fully cut it, especially on July 4th and when Facebook is an American company.

I would venture to say that Facebook would be embarrassed to realize that they're allowing themselves to eschew their own TOS, which partly read:

"Facebook does not permit hate speech, but distinguishes between serious and humorous speech. While we encourage you to challenge ideas, institutions, events, and practices, we do not permit individuals or groups to attack others based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition."

However, Facebook may be perfectly okay with eschewing this part of their TOS—and, thus, the American spirit (which is embodied in, e.g., "all men are created equal" [the "Declaration of Independence"] and "establish[ing] Justice, insur[ing] domestic Tranquility, provid[ing]  for the common defence, promot[ing]  the general Welfare, and secur[ing]  the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..." [Preamble of the U.S. Constitution]).

Nonetheless, we who are fellow Americans and/or users of the American social medium known as Facebook are not okay with Facebook eschewing their own TOS in any way, let alone in violating the American spirit in doing so.

Another Petition Against Nehemia Gordon (To Which The Title Link Leads)


  1. First of all, Nehemia Gordon violates the tenets of real Karaism. For example:

    1. "Karaites consider traditional Christianity (any form of Christianity which holds that Jesus / Yehoshua has divine or semi-divine status) to be outright idol worship, in that it raises one of Elohim's creations to the level of creator, either in part or in full. Incidentally, this is precisely the view that Islam holds towards Christianity."
    2. Since Karaism holds that "traditional Christianity...[is] outright idol worship", Karaites are to "not consent unto [the Christian, whether Jewish or gentile], nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him;  but thou shalt surely kill him; thy hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to draw thee away from the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is in the midst of thee. 
  2. Secondly, as previous petitioners wrote, "That rabbis have good things to say about A Prayer to Our Father is a moot point. That pastors have good things to say about the book is moot as well." Nehemia is profiting off of Tanakh and violations of Deuteronomy 13:9-12. "Ye shall not make with Me--gods of silver, or gods of gold, ye shall not make unto you." (Exodus 20:19)
  3. Thirdly, Nehemia is verbally abusive. Real Karaites do not verbally abuse people.
Again, Nehemia is nothing more than an abusive hypocrite and opportunist

Weird Request: Go Sign The Petition By a Homosexual Georgia Couple

Here is the petition. As I stated, the couple are a professing Christian and a Reform Jew. "My wife and I are both small business owners, and like many American families, our family enjoys family vacations, going to church and temple, and large cookouts with our extended family, friends and community."

They also need the Gospel. Clearly, they are hostile to it and--at best--misunderstand what Dan Cathy believes and does. "Since 2003, Chick-fil-A has given more than $5 million to organizations that actively work to hurt LGBT Americans. These groups include the Family Research Council, which the Southern Poverty Law Center deems a hate group. Additionally, Chick-fil-A has donated to groups that have gone on record as calling for "criminal sanctions" against gay and lesbian Americans, as well as groups that promote so-called "ex-gay therapy," a practice both debunked and deemed as harmful by nearly every major medical authority in the country."

They do not understand that homosexuality--at best--is a thorn in the flesh with which many homosexuals struggle, and--at worst-- of "a "deprived mind," that marriage equality is "twisted up," and that making marriage equality legal is "inviting God's judgment."" Remember that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for homosexuality, and--even though this is another discussion--even more spared for their homosexuality than some cities will be for merely refusing to believe in Jesus.

Dan Cathy and others are out to help, not hurt, homosexuals and others and to even save them. Therefore, for the sake of the Gospel (which is inherently Jewish) and the Christians like Dan Cathy who believe in the Gospel, go tell Marci and Marlysa Alt what I did: "I agree with Dan Cathy and hope that he can have a dialogue with you about what Evangelical Christians believe and why we believe it."

If you can't tell them as I--a Jewish Evangelical Christian--told them, tell them that you at least believe in Dan Cathy's right to believe and discuss--even if you don't agree with--Evangelical Christian (Messianic Jewish) views. After all, if nothing else, why should Dan Cathy deprive a Jew like Marlysa Alt of the Gospel if he truly believes Romans 1:16 and 10:13-15? Also, why equally deprive a gentile like Marcia Alt of the Gospel that a Jewish man (Jesus, Yeshua) literally died (and rose) to preach to both Jews and gentiles?
