Teen Handcuffed, Arrested And Suspended From School For Writing About Shooting A Pet Dinosaur – The New Civil Rights Movement

Teen Handcuffed, Arrested And Suspended From School For Writing About Shooting A Pet Dinosaur – The New Civil Rights Movement.

Teen Handcuffed, Arrested And Suspended From School For Writing About Shooting A Pet Dinosaur

In yet another true tale about incompetence, school officials called police after a 16-year old completed a writing assignment that involved him killing a pet dinosaur with a gun.

It’s not even September but school starts early in Summerville, South Carolina. On the first day of school, Tuesday, Alex Stone completed a writing assignment: fake Facebook status updates. Stone wrote about buying a gun and killing his neighbor’s pet dinosaur.

“I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business,” Stone told NBC 12 News.

Summerville High School officials were so concerned they immediately called police, who came, handcuffed, and arrested the 16-year old high school student. Police also examined the contents of Stone’s backpack and locker. No gun was found.

The charges? Disorderly conduct for arguing with the police, who say Stone was “irate.”

“I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have ‘gun’ in it. But a pet dinosaur?” Karen Gray, Alex Stone’s mother told the NBC affiliate. “I mean first of all, we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”

“If the school would have called me and told me about the paper and asked me to come down and discussed everything and, at least, get his point-of-view on the way he meant it. I never heard from the school, never. They never called me,” said Gray.

Investigators say the teacher contacted school officials after seeing the message containing the words “gun” and “take care of business,” and police were then notified on Tuesday.

Stone reportedly was suspended for the rest of the week, but says he doesn’t want to return to Summerville High, he now wants to be home-schooled.

NBC 12 has a video of the report.

Judge criticizes Gov. Pence

Posted: Thursday, August 21, 2014 6:00 am

INDIANAPOLIS — A federal judge says Indiana Gov. Mike Pence contradicted himself on same-sex marriage, telling the court he had no power to enforce Indiana’s gay marriage ban but then directing executive agencies about how to proceed after court rulings on the subject.

U.S. District Judge Richard Young ruled Tuesday that Indiana must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states, but he put the order on hold as a federal appeals court is taking up his earlier decisions on the issue.

Also in the Tuesday ruling, Young said that on June 26, a day after he struck down the ban, Pence ordered agencies to abide by that ruling. But when the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals stayed Young’s order, the governor said that “executive branch agencies are to execute their functions as though the U.S. District Court order … had not been issued.”

That, Young wrote, contradicted Pence’s repeated assertions that he did not have “any authority to enforce, or other role respecting,” the state’s ban on gay marriage. Pence “did what he claimed he could not do by directing executive agencies on how to proceed in enforcing the law,” Young wrote.

Young called Pence’s actions a “bold misrepresentation” and said that he found them “to be, at a minimum, troubling.”

Pence’s decisions, announced in memoranda from chief counsel Mark Ahearn, applied only to state agencies that report to his governor’s office and would affect state services controlled by those agencies, such as the ability to file jointly for state taxes.

“The memoranda issued by the Governor clearly contradict his prior representations to the court,” Young wrote in Tuesday’s ruling.

As a result, Young stripped Pence of the immunity from the lawsuit that he had previously been granted.

“By law a governor exercises authority over the executive branch of government. Governor Pence has a duty to uphold the laws of the state and will continue to do so while respecting the courts’ rulings. That does not make the governor a proper party in every lawsuit against the State of Indiana,” Pence spokeswoman Christy Denault said in a statement Wednesday.

Attorney general’s office spokesman Bryan Corbin said in a statement that the agency believed the governor should not have been named as a defendant.

Meanwhile, Indiana is appealing the federal judge’s ruling. Attorney General’s office spokesman Bryan Corbin says the state filed an appeal Wednesday with the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Corbin says the state’s latest appeal likely will be litigated on a different timetable than the cases scheduled for arguments next week.

Young ruled Tuesday that Indiana must recognize the marriage of Michelle and Shannon Bowling, of Indianapolis, who were married in Polk County, Iowa, on Jan. 18, 2011. Shannon Bowling is employed by the Indiana Department of Correction, and the couple sued to seek state benefits for Michelle Bowling and her children from a previous relationship. As head of the departments of personnel and revenue, Pence “clearly does have something to do with it,” said the couple’s attorney, Richard A. Mann.

The 7th Circuit is scheduled to hear oral arguments next week on the state’s appeal of Young’s June 25 ruling throwing out the ban. How long the stay in the Bowling case remains in effect depends on how the appeals court rules on that other case, the attorney general’s office said.

    Bills To Ban Harmful ‘Ex-Gay’ Therapy Are Stalling – ‘Ex-Gay’ Activists To Blame – The New Civil Rights Movement

    OK I am not posting the full content here as I think the most important content is the news that anti gay people at all levels are going over seas and trying to influence other countries to follow the anti gay , anti homosexual way.   God first way only even if that country has a different god.   Anything to hurt gay people.  I know for a fact that groups from the USA kept trying to get the Canadian government to approve our laws on sex and including raising the age of consent, which had no problem in country, but were made an issue by groups in the USA.  I remember my Canadian relatives complaining to me about it.  So here we are, after years of working under cover and not wanting it known, the hate groups of the USA are at work in all the underdeveloped nations and most of the other nations in the world, trying to enforce the hate they are filled with.   Sad Hugs

    Wash. Times  Baselessly Claims That GA Gubernatorial Candidate Is Keeping His Pro-Equality Views A “Secret” | Equality Matters

    Wash. Times Baselessly Claims That GA Gubernatorial Candidate Is Keeping His Pro-Equality Views A “Secret”

    August 20, 2014 11:26 am ET by Luke Brinker

    The Washington Times editorial board accused Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Jason Carter of concealing his support for LGBT equality in order to win over the state’s voters, ignoring Carter’s own words offering his full-throated support for marriage equality and mounting evidence that gay rights are decreasingly a wedge issue with voters, even in traditionally conservative states like Georgia.

    In an August 19 editorial, the Times alleged that when it comes to his opinion on “homosexual demands,” Carter “dodges, weaves, and deflects, eager not to offend religiously conservative Georgia.” Writing that Carter can’t win his closely contested race against Republican Gov. Nathan Deal if he embraces “the full rainbow agenda,” the Times asserted that Carter is hiding behind statements from his spokesman and supporters in the gay rights community:

    Jason Carter wants to follow in his famous grandfather’s footsteps. Mr. Carter, a Democrat, is running for governor of Georgia, a position Jimmy Carter held for a term before moving on to the White House. Jason Carter is willing to say pretty much whatever it takes to win. When someone asks his opinions on homosexual demands, he dodges, weaves and deflects, eager not to offend religiously conservative Georgia. But his gay supporters are saying it for him.

    Georgia remains committed to traditional marriage. The left-leaning Public Policy Polling discovered last year that 6 of 10 Georgia voters want to keep the thousands-of-years-old definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. If Jason Carter yearns to come out in support of the full rainbow agenda, he knows better than to do it before the election.

    […]

    The pro-homosexual website Project Q Atlanta doesn’t like the sneaky approach, either. “Jason Carter collects gay cash, but stays mum on LGBT issues,” the site noted earlier this month about a fundraiser held for Mr. Carter. The event, organized and hosted by homosexual activists, raised nearly $90,000 for the Carter campaign. Reporters were barred from the fundraiser, lest the secret leak.

    […]

    One man’s pragmatism is another man’s dishonesty. Voters deserve to know, loud and clear, what they’ll get if they put another Carter in the governor’s mansion on Nov. 4. Gov. Nathan Deal, the Republican incumbent running for re-election, should pressure Mr. Carter to say unequivocally whether he would be prepared as governor to fully defend Georgia’s state constitutional amendment, enacted by the people, that defines traditional marriage.

    It’s true, as the Times noted, that some gay rights activists in Georgia expressed unease with Carter’s previous relative silence on LGBT issues during the campaign. But the Times conveniently omitted the fact that this month Carter addressed those concerns head-on, affirming his longstanding support for marriage equality. This, by the Times’ standards, apparently constitutes “dodg[ing], weav[ing], and deflect[ing]” on marriage equality:

    CARTER: I have, for a very long time, supported marriage equality. … I didn’t understand [the Georgia Voice’s editorial]. Everybody who knows me knows where I stand on the issue. I haven’t had a conversion. My grandfather is 89 and supports marriage equality in part because of the influence we’ve had on him. I do think it’s important for people to know that no one in the movement is talking about telling churches what to do. But as far as the government is concerned, marriage equality is something I believe in and have [believed in] for a very, very, very long time since before I got into politics.

    Notably, while a majority of Georgians still oppose marriage equality, the same poll the Times cited shows that 57 percent of the state’s voters support either civil unions or marriage for same-sex couples and that 72 percent oppose allowing employers to fire workers for being gay (The Washington Times, by contrast, has proclaimed that “discrimination is necessary” against LGBT workers).

    The Times’ misleading attack on Carter is the latest salvo in the paper’s long-running crusade against LGBT equality. The paper acted as the media sponsor for the recent anti-gay March for Marriage, and its editorial board and columnists have assailed “militant homosexual activists” for opposing anti-LGBT business discrimination, accused liberals of using openly gay football player Michael Sam as a distraction from Benghazi, and charged that it’s “lurid propaganda” to teach students that LGBT people exist.

    Oh what egotistical self serving lies and falsehoods.   Not only is he saying everyone else is wrong, and only he and people who follow him are correct but you need his “words of wisdom” at a cost to protect yourself, and become one with his god.

    I think the saddest thing is his insistence on everyone else but him is wrong.  Only his interpretation and only his opinion on God is true.  No other view of God means anything or matters.  

    This guy is desperately holding on to both his income and the people who listen to him.  As he is more and more proven wrong, and more and more people recognize the inclusion of the Creator, he loses any viability, and that he can’t stand over all else.

    Scott Lively Takes On ‘Dangerous Heresy’ Of Gay-Affirming Christians

    Something that might bug Religious Right leaders even more than the expansion of marriage equality in the U.S. is the increasing acceptance of homosexuality and LGBT equality among Christians.

    The latest salvo against Christians who challenge anti-gay interpretations of scripture comes from Scott Lively. Lively originally gained notoriety for his book “The Pink Swastika,” which blamed homosexuals for the rise of Nazi Germany, but may now be more well known for his travels fanning anti-gay sentiment and encouraging the passage of anti-gay legislation in Uganda and around the globe. Earlier this month Livelylectured prominent Christian singer Vicky Beeching, who recently came out as a lesbian, for having “given in to the lie that she is a homosexual.” Lively asserted, “There’s no such thing as a gay person.”

    His latest project is a brochure that is meant to take on gay-affirming Christians — even Christians who decry the Religious Right’s obsession with homosexuality but agree that it is a sin. Lively is promoting the brochure on Matt Barber’s wildly anti-gay BarbWire as “An Open Letter to Christian Leaders in America.”

    The brochure includes 18 short interpretations of Bible passages that Lively says make his point that homosexuality is not just another sin, but “the harbinger of God’s wrath.”

    In his “open letter” he portrays the LGBT equality movement as pursuing a long-term “blueprint for supplanting Biblical morality with sexual anarchy — in essence, the overthrow of family-centered Christian civilization.” The only remaining barrier to gay “cultural hegemony” is the Christian Church, which is why gay rights activists are trying to destroy it from within. Lively’s brochure warns:

    A dangerous modern heresy called “gay theology” is infiltrating the Christian church at an alarming pace. Many believers, fearful of being called “haters,” are trivializing the threat by calling homosexuality “just another sin.”

    Lively uses his open letter to promote himself as a speaker, spokesman, and workshop leader. But, he insists, “This is not a marketing campaign.”

    We are not offering the brochure for sale. We simply want your help to quickly disseminate the brochure to every Christian leader in America. We will provide as many copies of this brochure as you can use at our cost of $.07 per piece plus shipping and whatever donation you feel led to offer. Alternatively, if you provide us an up-to-date list of pastors or other leaders we will send it to them ourselves (but please provide help with postage). Or if you desire to print your own supply, we will send you the artwork. If for any reason you dislike the brochure, we exhort you to take action in your own way to spread the warning and rally believers against this dangerous modern heresy called “gay theology.”

    Lively’s brochure is produced by Defend the Family International, an arm of his Abiding Truth Ministries.

    Anti-Gay Columnist Fears Future Where ‘Heterosexuality Is Outlawed’ | Right Wing Watch

    Filed under: Bigotry, Funny Stuff, Homosexual, News, opinion — Scottie @ 12:34

    A short story about an alternate reality causes them this much problem, Oh gods I wonderful how they figure all the other reality shows.  The whole point of the story is that discrimination is wrong no matter who or why.   So these people take it that  gay people plan to wipe them out.  Crazy.  Again the point is no discrimination.  Gay people want equal rights, not extra or superior rights, but the same as have been granted to everyone else.   Homosexuals wish to be treated equally, not differently.   Look, if you don’t discriminate you have no reason to worry, if you do, change your ways.   Hugs

    Anti-Gay Columnist Fears Future Where ‘Heterosexuality Is Outlawed’

    We have gotten used to anti-gay political commentators taking the satirical 1987 essay “Gay Revolutionary” as a serious manifesto and the policy platform of the sinister gay agenda.

    Apparently, satire just isn’t their thing.

    In a guest column for BarbWire today, Mark Judge offers a similar take on Charles Beaumont’s 1955 short story “The Crooked Man,” in which heterosexuals are closeted and opposite-sex couples have to hide in secret out of fear of harassment and stigmatization.

    Of course, the BarbWire contributor completely misses the point of the story about societal mistreatment of gays and lesbians…and instead claims that the story is really about looming “gay fascism” and the totalitarian goals of the gay rights movement.

    Judge’s column is frighteningly titled “When Heterosexuality Is Outlawed.”

    There’s a short story that has been published about gay fascism. It depicts a dystopian world where heterosexuality has been outlawed, and those found to be straight are operated on, brainwashed, and reeducated to be gay. The story has deep implications about gay marriage, the abuse of language, and totalitarianism.

    “The Crooked Man” was first rejected by Esquire magazine, which found it too controversial, and then published by Hugh Hefner, a young man from Chicago who had recently launched a magazine called Playboy. Hefner would receive a pile of angry mail for publishing Beaumont’s story.

    Sixty years later, it’s not hard to imagine that some elements of “The Crooked Man” have come true, if not its entire dystopian world. There is a dose of fascism in the gay and trans rights movement, but for argument’s sake it’s important to elucidate exactly what those elements are. Two homosexuals wanting to spend their lives together and share expenses and taxes and visitation rights is not a threat to the republic. What is a threat is the manipulation of language, and a conscience-eradicating resentment that calls for large-scale coercion.

    So are we headed for a “Crooked Man” future? Yes and no. It’s doubtful that the rationalization of the sexual revolution will ever get so extreme that heterosexuals will be arrested and operated on against their will.

    Still, there is a movement to convince the public that “there’s no such thing as straight or gay.” According to this theory, everyone is bisexual and it’s just a matter of where you fall on the scale of attraction to male or female. If this scenario is allowed to take hold, we could in fact come to a day when it is decided that something has to be done about girl-chasing Johnny, who’s just too far on the hetero end of the Kinsey scale.

    How ironic that sexual libertine Hugh Hefner will be recalled as the first one to publicly note the coming of this sexual devolution.

    Tea Party Of Louisiana Falls For Hoax Article: ‘Common Core Turns Students Gay’ | Right Wing Watch

    Tea Party Of Louisiana Falls For Hoax Article: ‘Common Core Turns Students Gay’ | Right Wing Watch.

    Tea Party Of Louisiana Falls For Hoax Article: ‘Common Core Turns Students Gay’

    The Tea Party of Louisiana has declared Sen. David Vitter a “turncoat of liberty” because of his support for Common Core, warning yesterday that the education standards will turn kids gay. Vitter came out in favor of Common Core while Gov. Bobby Jindal, who once supported Common Core, is now trying — so far unsuccessfully— to repeal the standards. Angry with Vitter’s remarks, the Tea Party group responed by linking to an article titled “Common Core Turns First Wave Of Students Gay,” apparently unaware that it was from the parody website Broken World News.

    The Times-Picayune notes that Broken World News lists on its About page: “If you believe any of the shit you read here you are a freaking moron.”

    “Initial estimates suggest that as many as 60% of students who participated in Common Core have gone gay, many overnight. But experts fear that some are just transitioning a little slower,” the Broken World News article reads. “[T]he difficulty of the Common Core tests is the primary culprit in promoting the gay agenda, calling it ‘common knowledge that the smartest kids in school are usually the gay kids.’”

    Of course, the next item listed by the Tea Party group should also be taken as a joke, as it comes from consistently discredited pseudo-historian David Barton.
