Over the hump

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 5:03 PM

And the line is open. Closing tidbits:

* Several satellite rallies are planned around Arkansas to show solidarity with Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity in Washington. In Little Rock, comes word of a Rally to Restore Sanity — and Hope, at noon Saturday, Oct. 30, in MacArthur Park. Another is scheduled at noon the same day on the Capitol steps.

* Been wondering about Bishop Steven M. Arnold, former pastor of St. Mark Baptist Church, who resigned amid some personal difficulties recently from the West 12th Street megachurch? After several meetings with sympathetic churchgoers, it appears Arnold has decided to go out on his own and start a new church — Grace Temple.

According to the Facebook page, its first service will be at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 7, at the Perfecting New Life facility at Mississippi and Illinois.

UPDATE: 9th Circuit panel has temporarily stayed order ending gay discrimination in military. Don't tell just yet.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
