    Cereal Angst

    PinkNews has a story about right-wing groups incensed over Kellogg's new rainbow breakfast cereal, called "Together with Pride," whose sales will directly benefit GLAAD.

    “Kellogg’s isn’t endorsing ‘pride,’ but a radical agenda that targets children and families,” blustered the Ruth Institute. By funding GLAAD, fumed 2nd Vote, Kellogg's is supporting the Equality Act, "an unprecedented attack on freedom of expression."

    But it was the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property that caught my attention by claiming the “pro-homosexual agenda is rearing its ugly head in your children’s cereal."

    That's concerning. In my day, you found a plastic toy in children's cereal, not an ugly head.

    Brick by Brick

    In time for Pride, Lego has introduced its first ever LGBTQ-themed offering. The 346-piece set, called "Everyone is Awesome," contains 11 figures, each in a different rainbow color.

    Before you ask, yes, they do hurt when you step on them.

    Jive Talkin'

    Emily Hines, a student at Louisiana State University, posted a TikTok video of herself pointing to a picture of transgender health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine and lip-synching the Bee Gees lyrics "More than a woman, more than a woman to me." Hines wore an Alpha Phi sweatshirt, and the sorority, which prohibits discrimination, ultimately booted her out.

    "My religious beliefs have been pushed under the rug because the social construct of gender has become such a big issue,” moaned an irate Hines. “My faith teaches me that God made male and female in his image, and that one cannot become the other."

    Yes of course. Her faith. Everyone knows that publicly mocking and demeaning a person for their gender identity is precisely what Jesus would do. He said so in the Book of Ridicule.

    A Hymn to Them

    What a journey it's been for the Rev. Megan Rohrer, 41, who came out as a lesbian at a Lutheran college in South Dakota.

    "The people who were in my religion classes with me would sing hymns when I walked by, to try to get rid of my gay demons. And I would just sing harmony. I didn't know what to do," Rohrer remembers.

    After college, Rohrer began to identify as transgender. And now they've been elected as a bishop in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the first openly trans person in the nation to achieve that status in a major Christian denomination.

    I'm sure some of those hymn-singers are now seething in a most unchristian fashion.

    A Passing

    The Obamas announced on social media that today they lost their dog, Bo. I felt genuinely sad at the news.

    I'm not sure what emotion I'll feel when I learn of the death of Donald Trump's dog, the Republican Party.
