SALUTE TO CIVIL RIGHTS ICON
On January 19, Martin Luther Kings, Jr. Day, services will be held at King's former church, Ebenezer Baptist Church. This service comes the day before the inauguration ceremony in Washington D.C. with Rev. Rick Warren delivering the keynote address. "Dr. King's dream includes everyone", said Farris, the chief organizing officer for the service. "Rick Warren may not agree with some of the things that some of God's children do, but he does at least acknowledge that they are God's children, unlike a lot of the other conservative colleagues,", said Farris. Let's hope Issac Newton Farris, Jr. is right in believing this will unite all groups who struggle against bigotry and for the acceptance of all.
SEE WHAT'S NEW
Ugly, worn paneling has been replaced with freshly painted drywall in the private rooms and suites. Each room required that all molding, trim, electrical outlet, and paneling be removed before new drywall could be installed. Once the new walls were sanded and painted, all the trim and fixtures had to be re-installed. Thanks to Shawn and Ray for their hard work in sprucing up the "new rooms".
Our newly redesigned www.theclubs.com has become XXX. Besides the Clubs Locker Room, you can post your profile, blog, set up groups, and more. Check it out.
2008 MOVIES WITH "BALLS"
Only Bill Maher has the balls to make such a scathing documentary about organized religion in the movie "Religulous". Only Harvey Milk had the balls to courageously and mercilessly fight against bigotry in the movie "Milk". If you are not part of the Religious Right, believe in religious pluralism, and believe that constitutional democracy matter, you must see these two movies. Both "Religulous" and "Milk" show the "religious war" going on in America, and how the Religious Right would take away our freedoms. GO SEE THE MOVIES.
The entire staff of Club Columbus thank you for your support during the past year and wish you happiness, success, and good health in 2009. As always, we welcome your feedback.
Surviving the Thanksgiving to New Year's Day crunch is enough to make even the merriest to see Rudolph-nosed red. On January 2, that anti-celebration break sets in when you just collapse onto the couch and unbutton your ever-tightened post-buffet pants and retire that Mariah Carey Christmas collection from your CD player. You have gone from 24/7 party person to dead-halted recluse...and not by choice, but by an empty calendar coincidence. To fill-in that empty calendar, Club Indianapolis is offering One Week of Fitness Free to combat that post-holiday depression.

80TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
On January 19, we celebrate the birthday of Rev. Dr. Marin Luther King, Jr., America's civil rights icon. There are some, both within and outside the gay community, who object when LGBT people draw comparisons between our civil rights struggle and the movement for black civil rights. However, many feel our struggles need not be identical in order for appropriate comparisons to be made. Most importantly, acknowledging the similarities between struggles for social and economic justice--be they on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else--in no way diminishes any of those struggles. As so eloquently articulate by Dr. King: 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere'. Hopefully, Dr. King's memory will make all of us proud to be an American.
DIFFERENT GUY EVERYDAY...
on the redesigned www.theclubs.com. Everyday, hot men are joining the Clubs Locker Room, submitting their photos, downloading their video, posting their profile, blogging, setting up groups, etc. There's enough new things to do on the web site to keep a guy busy.
RELIGIOUS RIGHT ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE
Beware when you hear claims that the Religious Right is dead. When Religious Right leaders, such as James Dobson, call for "martyrs" and predicts there will come a time when we will have to risk our lives to save "God's country", than such declarations that the Culture Wars are over turn out to be spectacularly wrong. If you have the chance, go see the movie "Religulous" and the movie "Milk". In both movies, we see how the Religious Right intends and is capable of waging and winning theocractic battles against LGBT human rights. GO SEE THE TWO MOVIES.
