Transcript vol. 3. no. 8 Gay Austin may 1979 5 Letters Dear Friends: I'd like to exchange ideas and inspirations and, hopefully, work together to develop articles and books of religion and ethics that are suited to the real world and are favorable to non-exploitive sexuality, including homosexuality, and other humane attitudes and behaviors. I believe that the cultural revolution we are part of not only reflects our personal, individual needs for freedom and justice but also can lead toward a sane, balanced, cooperative, peaceful, loving world, the only kind worth having, the only kind that will survive. However, to people well-trained in conventional religions and moralities, the "Gay World" and "The Goddess" seem corrupt, elitist or diabolical. Legal sanctions and protections for deviance help but what we really need are respect and understanding. We need God on our side. To be healthy and humane, people need ethics and energizing, uplifting beliefs. 1 believe it is conventional heterosexuality that is perversion and a cause of arrogant nationalism, militarism, excessive human population and other deviltries. But to overcome Leviticus and Paul so to convince the common person of the wisdom and righteousness of bi-sexuahty and homosexuality requires time, effort, courage and miracles. If you have ideas to share, please write me. Abigail (Capaldi Brown) Women's Organic Health Farm Bertram, Texas 78605 Wins Custody, Loses Right of Association WINDSOR, ONTARIO - A county judge ruled last January 17 in a divorce case that a lesbian mother may retain custody of her two children but that no one may live with her without the court's approval. The trial included testimony from a child and family therapist to die effect that sexual orientation was not an important factor in determining a parent's inability to raise children or in the determination of the child's own sexuality and the judge seemed to agree. He stated, "The homosexual factor is in no way a determining factor - a factor that by itself would require removal of the child from the custody of that parent." But the judgment also declared that "being raised in a homosexual atmosphere by a homosexual parent openly associating with other homosexuals must be considered by die court as negative when one views the principles on which this country was founded and the beliefs of the majority of society in this country." The judge further stated, "I am attempting to improve the situation by preventing any open and avowed lesbian or homosexual relationship in the home." The Canadian ruling was made the same day the Michigan Supreme Court reversed four lower court decisions and restored custody of 12-year-old Jillian Miller to her mother Margareth. The Michigan case set the strongest legal precedent to date in favor of the rights of lesbian mothers.V C4PIM coin COMP/W 3004 Guadalupe 472-1676 An extensive collection of COINS and SUPPLIES GOLD JEWELRY FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD also buying antiques and all gold 20% discount on gold jewelry and coin with this ad. L _ __—_._____ supplies Viewpoint // the mind goes, the body still functions, said a former Austin resident. I wondered if the might be speaking of the Texas legislature. Upon checking it out, I realized that while the first part of the statement could be so applied, the second had nothing to do with the legislature. You wnat bodies? You go to a gym or a racetrack. And speaking of horses, have you noticed how a spirited horse will shake its head even as it trots forward? Not to draw too many analogies, but did you notice how Gov. Bill kept shaking his head, no he wouldn't get rid of GOMA, even while he was heading straight for it? But really, folks, isn't it better that there not be an office for migrant affairs? As solid and steady a citizen as Gov. Bill is, I feel certain that any affairs he has will be more than migratory. For instance, good solid Gov. Bill has volunteered his very own home state to be the site of nuclear wastes, which will plague, uh, be with us for years to come. Centuries. The Gov. must be intending to make our state a very solid place, stable in politics and government for a few thousand years to insure that nothing bad happens to that nuke waste (never mind what happens to our citizens), doesn 't get in the possession of the wrong people (always worried about possession, our "law V order" officials). But I can assure them, the "right" waste in the "right" places will insure that there will be no one left to use the waste wrongly. And no one to terrorize. Sigh. But there's hope. Do you feel a desire to dress children in red, white and blue, force them into the fields to work? Do you want child molestation/abuse to be referred to as "corporalpunishment"? Well, my friend, open some children's homes, donate about $68,000 to a winning gubernatorial candidate's campaign, talk about god and Communists (or God and communists, isn 't it?), and fust start beating the kids with boards. Call it licks. You will be hailed as a Christian savior, folks will send you their hard-earned money to support your "cause. " Now, if the public finds out you arc gay, forget it. You will be*a pervert of gamy savor, your homes will be closed, etc. You can only win at this game if you are white, male. Christian (OR Baptist), non-gay and over forty. Cliange your name to (Mo) Lester Ripoff. In the interest of the public outcry, I hope all you folk got out and voted against the nuke. I know it didn 7 do any good. fjtfttJMtkW^'^ be ~^£ to think "I told 'em so." in the miUisec before we're all blown away. Isn't it interesting how conveniently the Mansfield Dam accident was timed? So some of our more intelligent council folk could say "No one died at Harris- burg. " Yes, true, but wait till you see the new line of humanoids our power companies are designing to be released in a few years or nine months after Harrisburg. And how astounding that Mansfield caused a power failure in Northwest Austin which then turned out hugely to vote FOR the nuke. Now, I'm not one to throw innuendoes or bandy accusations, but HOW CONVENIENT. How messy for the seven who died - for the Nuke. -Amme Hogan French Cuisine, Courtyard, & Bar.
