Hello & friendly welcome to Peace Chog! Feel free to browse around and check out various types of discussions we will be holding here, viewing, and discussing. Let's take a look at this video. Do you agree with Pope Franci's view regarding homosexuality? Let's make this clear, by the way: we are a Christian community that accepts EVERYONE including our LGBTQ friends.
Here is that video:
Interesting. Is it about time Christians admit they need to back off our LGBTQ friends and accept them into our Churches with open arms? What do you think?

The atmosphere in the US seems to have become a more hateful, chaotic one, especially targeting Muslims, immigrants, and now barely incoming transgender rights and possibly, gay rights, are on the chopping block as well. When all of this happens within three weeks of a new president and his administration taking office, the citizens need to wonder why the country is in such divided chaos, even if they supported this new candidate.
How our government allowed its democracy to be this threatened and this compromised, we will never know. After all, Trump ran his campaign on hate. Hate against LGBT, people affected by disabilities, and shamefully, he's been caught on record saying unsavory statements about women. Time and time again.
If Bill Cosby lost his career that quickly, and there are ties between Russian and Trump, how is this administration even in charge? How could the government let any of this happen?
We had eight years of a wonderful president who is know jet skiing and enjoying the waters on an island. Check out how relaxed he looks while the rest of us are as worried as we can be:
However, you can't blame him. He did so much in eight years: women's rights, LGBT rights, immigrations rights, and more. He did evertyhing with so much grace. I am ready to order a canoe or kayak[/link] and call it a day.
But at the end, I end up on this site and want to remind myself that it is an open discussion, videos, and a forum I want to present here, whether they are negative or positive. After all, no progress is made if no discussions are held and you don't hear people on the other side. Sure, our patience might get tested but at the end of the day, it is the human experience that helps us all evolve.
Next, the Trump administration is undoing transgender rights to use whichever restroom they are comfortable with. Tell me, why are we so concerned with what goes on behind bathroom stalls? It is not our job to regulate other people!
I can't wait to take out my new kayak which I looked up using Killer Kayaks. With everything going on, I am finding that being in nature has a calming effect. This is why I try to hike or surf at least one a week and now, seems like boating or kayaking once every couple of months to stay sane.
I wonder what other news I can report on here. Perhaps something positive... yes, why not?

These are the types of viewpoints that are welcome here. Most of us do not interact with our gay, lesbian, transsexual, and queer friends because we already have a notion of how they are 'sinners' and how they are 'sinning'.
What if we just got past that and got to know them? Then, what?
A role model is a person whose behavior, or success is or can be copied by others, in most cases, the younger people. Sportsmen and women are the community of role models in today's age.The endurance, speed, accuracy, determination and hard work put in by these athletes in winning various sports makes them very admirable. In fact, they are idolized and many wish they were them.
Following are the 5 Most Admired Gay & Straight Athletes of 2016:
Tomy Daley is a 22 year old Olympic diver of British Origin. He started diving nationally and internationally at the a tender age of only nine. Daley has won several medals including the Common Wealth Games, FINA World Championships and the recent 2016 Summer Olympics Games among many others.
He made waves in 2013 by publicly declaring to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community (LGBT) that he is gay. His courage and determination has made many to admire him, he even broke the tweeter internwt record for his declaration.
Tom Daley is one of the most physically admired athletes of our time. Makes me want to put money down on Advance Elements inflatable kayak and make my way to the pool!
Also known as 'the flying fish' or 'Gomer', Michael is a 31 year old was who has won a total of 28 medals in his swimming career, with 8 of them being won in the 2008 Beijing Games.
In a recent interview at the parade, Phelps said that he swims two to five hours a day, six to seven days a week to prepare for the Olympics.His hard work has earned him respect among many.He is currently coaching the US team.
Since I am a poor swimmer, maybe I'll start with some inflatable kayak reviews and make my way up?
Serena gained awe for being the best female tennis player and has been credited for ushering in the power of women as professional tennis players. At only 35, she was ranked the highest paid female athlete in 2016 earning 28.9 US Dollars in prize money and endorsements.
Also known as 'the lightening bolt', Usain is the best athlete in the world right now.The Jamaican Sprinter began his career over a lunch bet and has since then won many records in the 100 meters, 200 meters and in being part of 4 × 100 meters relay. He has a gaming app called bolt. At 31, he is a role model to many young and the young at heart.
Caster is a 29 year old South African middle-distance runner. She recently took place in the 2016 Olympic Games and won a gold medalist. In 2009,Semenya won a gold medal in the women's 800 meters at the World Championships in a record time of 1:55.45.
Her victory was controversial and this led to her being subjected to gender testing. She was later withdrawn from international competition until 6th July,2010 when the IAAF cleared her to return to competition.
Of course not! More to come. We will be including dozens of great examples of gay and straight athletes that should be admired for their athletics, no matter what their sexuality.
In conclusion, sports champions have a bigger role to play in society especially when it comes to positively influencing the younger generation. The above five are just but a few admired athletes of all time from the past and present who make you stand in awe. They have made an impact not only to their respective sports, but to fans, both young and old, all across the world. Remember that respect is not given, it is earned.
Be forewarned: this video is blunt. And very interesting!
