Editors note: In no way is this video meant to convey the actual events depicted in this description but it has relevance.

In 1974 I was asked to serve as entertainment chairman for and produce “An Evening With The Andrus’s”, a major campaign event held at The Rodeway Inn in Boise for the reelection of Governor Cecil Andrus of Idaho. The date was March 16, 1974. Headlining our show that night was Wayne Newton, along with stars of stage, screen and television Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy. Step-son David was not available. There was an overflow crowd and we ended up seating some audience in the hallway.

Newton’s arranger, who is at the piano in this video, and a few key musicians had flown in earlier in the day and I arranged with Louie Ventrella of our local musicians union to provide other players to make up a complete orchestra. I remember sweating bullets over the drummer who clearly was in over his head during rehearsal. We ended up replacing him with another for the night’s performance. That man was my hero as he came in cold and did not miss a beat. A quick run-through and it was time to dress for the main event.

Ms Jones and husband Jack sang a duet and coupled with Wayne Newton’s performance they brought down the house. An added pleasure was lunch with Shirley Jones earlier in the day. Not a bad gig and a fond memory for a star-struck Boise boy.

For Everyone Born – Shirley Erena Murray

Shirley Erena Murray’s text, “For Everyone Born,” is a powerful hymn for human rights and justice. First published in 2008 by the Global Praise unit of the General Board of Global Ministries’s text, “For Everyone Born,” is a powerful hymn for human rights and justice. urray presents the unconditional and challenging vision of God’s shalom, especially as it addresses the worth of all persons.

Ms. Murray writes:
I wrote this text in 1998, when I was involved with work for Amnesty International and because I couldn’t find anything to reflect a broad overview of human rights in any hymnbook. You can see that I have used some of the very basic ideas of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights — the right to shelter, safety, food, and later, the right to a job, to freedom of speech and worship. I’ve tried to put them in a context which relates directly to the Gospel, but without excluding those who are not of the Christian faith…. But in [a] more specific way, and to me an authentic one, it relates deeply and immediately to the manifesto of Jesus and all that he taught.” What is this table? In my mind it began as the table of the world in the peaceable kingdom, an imaginary place of justice and joy where everyone gathers and is fed. But inevitably it was taken up as a communion hymn, in the context of the Holy Table…. And in places where exclusion by the Church is a source of injustice and pain, as with the gay and lesbian communities, it has been used to ask for a place at the table, along with every other believer.”

In all the compelling and powerful ways this text “speaks” to us, it also triggers emotional reactions and can be difficult to sing. In particular, verse four sparked robust debate in the selection process. The file isthick with wide reviews from various sources and feedback from counselors, social workers, and pastors
over the tensions between seeing the ideal of Christ’s teachings of reconciliation and wholeness and the realities of extreme sexual abuse and pastoral care. We are certainly challenged by this hymn to live into what the church claims to believe and called by the Creator to help bring into being. When asked whether Ms. Murray foresaw challenges for congregational singing, she responded:

“… I wrote the ‘tough’ verse 4 because I knew, under the manifesto of Jesus, that even the worst abuse has to be dealt with and faced, and forgiveness requires singing about here. Of course, I have had much reaction to this — personal stories of terrible pain and lifelong trauma from all kinds of abuse. Sometimes the verse is omitted… by insecure leaders of worship. This destroys the architecture of the text. Sometimes — less often — it is welcomed as exposing and recognising wounds that seem impossible to heal.”

Interview with Shirley Phelps-Roper, Leader – Westboro Baptist Church- Topeka, Kansas

We’ve added a another clip from this interview (in HD quality):

Chris Mason, Founder of stops in Topeka, Kansas to visit the infamous “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church.

We use WBC’s own hateful message to raise funds for the people and organizations they protest against. If WBC is coming to your town, contact us and we will help you turn their hate into positive change.

When WBC goes to a school to protest a gay/straight alliance, or to a temple to protest with their anti-Semitic signs, we build the website and take online pledges for every minute they will be picketing at that location. The longer they protest, the more money they raise for the gay/straight alliance or temple they are protesting against. We hope that WBC will eventually stop their protesting in order to stop raising funds for the LGBT and Jewish communities.

It is a fun, positive way to respond to WBC’s hateful message.

This interview was part of a project that Phelps-A-Thon.com founder, Chris Mason, embarked on during the summer of 2009.

Driving Equality ( is a 100-day, 16,000-mile, 48-state trek across America to collect stories from LGBTQ people in an effort to raise awareness of the various forms of discrimination faced by our community in each state of the nation. Highlighting the differences in rights, laws, and amendments between the states will shed light on the current social standing of queer individuals today. I hope to create a dialogue about the disparities across the nation, and what can be done to end discrimination for all.

During the 100-day trip, I am meeting with LGBTQ community organizers, activists, and any citizens willing to talk, as well as our opposition. Through these interviews, I will gain an understanding of the current political climates, and explore ways of combating discrimination. Throughout my journey, I will make frequent posts on the website, including photos and video clips.

He Heard My Cry (Vinyl LP) – Shirley Caesar, “Shirley Caesar”



Views:5268|Rating:4.80|View Time:3:44Minutes|Likes:71|Dislikes:3
13 October 1938, Durham, North Carolina, USA. A deeply spiritual and affecting gospel singer, Caesar’s emotive vocals were first discovered in a church choir when she was 10 years old. Through her teenage years and early 20s she toured widely through the Carolinas and Virginia in the company of choirs such as the Dixie Hummingbirds, Gospel Harmonettes and Mahalia Jackson. She was best known, however, for her work with the Caravans, whom she begged to join after initially deputizing for Inez Andrews at a local performance. She stayed with the group for eight years.

Electing to pursue a solo career in 1966, alongside her own choir the Caesar Singers, she has subsequently carved out a profile that has made her the natural successor to Mahalia Jackson. Live, she is one of the great evangelical audience-rousers, a reputation that has not always transferred to record, where her spirituals can appear hectoring. After a series of recordings for the Hob Records label in the late 60s and early 70s, Caesar made her debut for Roadshow in 1977 with First Lady, a title that embraced her standing as ‘the first lady of gospel’. Unlike others within the field, Caesar left it comparatively late in her career before moving from devotional interpretations to a more contemporary Christian R&B style. She has collaborated widely, a process seen to best effect on duets with Al Green, including ‘Sailing On The Sea Of Love’, which won her one of her 11 Grammy Awards. Probably the best demonstration of her technique came via her joint 1988 release with Rev. Milton Brunson and Albertina Walker for CBS Records, where the exhortations to her maker could be heard in their natural, live church setting.

Several of Caesar’s 90s albums for the Word label were more R&B-focused, but she returned to a more traditional approach with 1995’s Live… He Will Come. By this stage Caesar’s roll-call of achievements included 10 Stellar awards, eight Dove awards, and a Soul Train Music award. In the early 00s she launched Shu-Bel Records, making her debut for the label in 2005 with I Know The Truth. She has also appeared on Broadway in the Mama I Want To Sing series, and continues her religious teachings as pastor of the Mt. Calvary Word Of Faith Holy Church. Caesar published her autobiography in 1998.
