Kate Hunt, a high school student in Florida, USA, faces prison – all because her girlfriend's anti-gay parents were angry that their daughter was dating another young woman. They went to police just two days after Kaitlyn's 18th birthday, claiming she had assaulted a minor.

If Kate is found guilty of "sexual battery" she could face 15 years in prison. But this isn't about a crime – this is about a consenting, high school romance between teenagers little more than two years apart in age. Please sign here to tell Florida Assistant State Attorney Brian Workman to drop the charges.

Do I think that HIV specifically is near to God's heart? No more than any other<a href="http://xoqnlyjpbv.com"> aitlfcfion</a> befalling His children...but I appreciate your concern for this preventable disease and its effects on the unsuspecting children that fall prey to it. It's good to be informed about what HIV is and isn't.

I remember who has the money and who has the power when my head sttras to spin. It is evidenced, and common sense has shown us that those who have the power and the money, also instill some concepts to inspire, influence some foundational beliefs' and generational public knowledge myths they do this to maintain what they have. And there are those who through capitalism have gained a voice and ability to contribute to this.What can't change is the way we know our bodies respond when we stick to what we know is true, because our well being has depended on it, and when we lurch into the vacuum of lies, we become ill. in more ways then one.The wealthy have manipulated our public knowledge . that is what we can trust.and it is somewhere to start, presently.find our own truth, and pay attention to how that works.just some thoughts in this untrusting' environment everyone is talking about. http://zgqilvrkzz.com [url=http://ajfwicjs.com]ajfwicjs[/url] [link=http://dvjnbb.com]dvjnbb[/link]
