Just put this on, turn the speakers up and go about your morning. Brian Wilson, performing the entire album live:
I had to hear Shawn Colvin do this Davud Byrne song before I realized it was a love song!
Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan:
Not all Christians are buying into homophobia — at least, not on this campus!
When an anti-gay preacher decided to visit a Virginia university yesterday (16 September), he was expecting a perfect opportunity to spout his nonsense for everyone to hear.
But it turns out, not many people could hear his sermon.
Instead, the James Madison University students gathered around the preacher, singing a song of love and tolerance. With one guy on guitar, the group begins to sing ‘How He Loves’, a Christian song by John Mark McMillon. And with it, you can’t hear the preacher at all.
Oh, I just love it.
Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina vowed to pursue the facts wherever the lead him. Opening his committee’s first public hearing since its establishment four months ago, he stressed the thoroughness of the task ahead, not the need to reach immediate conclusions.
“Given the gravity of the issues at hand, I am willing to risk answering the same question twice rather than risk not answering it once,” said Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor leading Congress’ eighth investigation of the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attack in eastern Libya.
Congress is still seeking documents from the Obama administration related to the attack, he said. More witnesses are being interviewed and individuals who’ve participated in congressional investigations will be questioned again. The special investigation was created to “find all of the facts, and I intend to do so fully,” Gowdy said.
