Race-Based Hate Crime At Christian School Where Karen Pence Teaches

Race-Based Hate Crime At Christian School Where Karen Pence Teaches

The Week reports:

A 12-year-old student at Immanuel Christian School, a private K-12 school in Fairfax, Virginia, says three sixth-grade boys pinned her down during recess on Monday and cut off her dreadlocks. “I was about to go down the slide, and the three boys came up and surrounded me,” the girl, Amari Allen, told The Washington Post on Thursday. “They were saying my hair was nappy and I was ugly and I shouldn’t have been born.” Allen, who is black, said one boy covered her mouth, the second grabbed her arms, and the third one cut her hair. All three boys, she says, are white.

WUSA9, a local CBS affiliate reports:

Amari Allen said she has never been more traumatized in her life until Monday when she said a group of white male classmates attacked her on the playground at Immanuel Christian School, a private K-12 school, in Fairfax, Virginia.

Amari tells WUSA9 that one boy covered her mouth and the second boy put her hands behind her back, while the third boy pulled out scissors and cut her medium-length locks while calling her names.

Karen Pence, wife of Mike Pence, teaches art at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia, the school where the hate crime occurred. The school, a cesspool of Christian bigotry and hatred, bans gay and transgender students, and requires all employees to sign a pledge declaring marriage is only between a man and a woman.

It’s not a school where everyone is welcome. In a “parent agreement” posted online, the school says it will refuse admission to students who participate in or condone homosexual activity. The 2018 employment application also makes candidates sign a pledge not to engage in homosexual activity or violate the “unique roles of male and female.”

There is a lot more about the schools official polices of hate and discrimination at the link above.  This really is a hateful place.  They really insist that families in their private homes attack LGBTQ, denying anything positive and preaching all the negatives.  In their homes, not just at school.   The Pence’s fit right in. 

WI Pastor: It’s “Criminal” to Stop Me from Preaching at School Graduations

According to Christians it is persecution to keep them from preaching at kids who can not leave the room, yet it is a horrible abuse of indoctrination to post positive support for LGBTQ people.  The amount of entitlement that Christians demand shows what the whole thing is about, forcing their religion on everyone else.  If a Muslim or a Hindu tried to do this Christians would freak out, but they demand the right to do it.    I also notice they think that no laws they do not want to follow applies to them, their god makes them above the laws.   Hugs

WI Pastor: It’s “Criminal” to Stop Me from Preaching at School Graduations

The Appleton Post-Crescent asked Dupree what he thought of these new measures, and his response was exactly what you’d expect from a Christian who thinks he’s constantly being persecuted because he has no sense of reality.

Calling the guidelines “systematic bullying” and a “direct attack on the First Amendment,” Dupree told The Post-Crescent he believes one of the intentions behind the protocol is to prevent him, specifically, from speaking at future district events.

“To me, that is criminal and it’s wrong and it doesn’t lead to tolerance,” he said. “I’m not trying to force anyone of any faith or any religion or belief to think as I do — I think everyone should be allowed to freely express who they are as an individual.”

See?! He’s not proselytizing at all! He’s just talking about Jesus in a casual way during an event that’s supposed to highlight students and their accomplishments. (If a Muslim did the same thing, the right-wing outrage would be more obvious; Dupree shouldn’t be let off the hook just because he’s Christian.)

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Trans People Are Evildoers Who Are “Full of the Devil”

This is what gets trans people beaten and killed.  This is what drives the hate that causes young gay people to kill themselves.   I often wonder if these people are doing this deliberately because they are filled with hate, or are they so stupid they can not see the damage they cause.  In this case they are the very evil they project on to others.    Hugs

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Trans People Are Evildoers Who Are “Full of the Devil”

The good news? Conservative activist and former state legislator (now once again running for public office) Gordon Klingenschmitt admits transgender people exist!

The man who’s full of shit think trans people are full of Satan.

It’s amusing that bigots like Klingenschmitt think two genders are more than enough while insisting the devil is an actual person and all trans people are just lying to themselves. It’s not worth explaining, yet again, why his description makes no sense, but it’s telling that he thinks the mere existence of a trans person leads to reeducation and indoctrination while a religious school itself does neither.

An update to my last post about Channing Smith

Here is another news article about the 16 year old boy who was outed as gay by cyberbullies.   This report gives more details and also shows photos of the boy.  Hugs

Family of Teen Who Killed Himself Say He Was ‘Outed’ by Cyberbullies Shortly Before Death

This is what happens when the Christians and politicians put out hateful lies and false statements about the LGBTQ.   This is why it is so very important to push back hard on them, and why we can not let them enshrine that hate in to our laws.  To the evangelicals that talk of needing to put gay people to death, that trans people are going to rape people in bathrooms, and how being LGBTQ is an abomination you caused this!   Are you happy now?  You created a situation where a kid couldn’t face the humiliation and bulling / taunting that was going to be thrown at him because he shared natural feelings for another boy and he knew he wouldn’t get any help from the teachers / staff.  I blame every politician that complain that messages of support and caring in relation to LGBTQ is wrong, instead implying there is something horrible and wrong about them.  I posted today about a guy who did that, instead wanting Jesus pushed in schools.   Here is what the hate the sin gets you.  Here is what your claims bring.  I am angry, no I am furious that this stuff is still happening and getting worse.   Please read the article.    Hugs

The family of a 16-year-old student who took his own life earlier this week says the teen had been outed as gay or bisexual by online bullies immediately before killing himself, according to reports.

Channing Smith of Manchester, Tennessee fatally shot himself Sunday night after Coffee County Central High School classmates posted a screenshot of revealing text messages between Smith and another boy on Instagram and Snapchat, his family says.

“Being in a small, rural town in the middle of Tennessee, you can imagine being the laughing stock and having to go to school Monday morning,” he told the outlet. “He couldn’t face the humiliation that was waiting on him when he got to school on Monday, so he shot and killed himself.”

According to the report, Joshua claims that he has already heard the Coffee County District Attorney’s Office has no intention of pressing charges, but that District Attorney Craig Northcutt had told him it would take 30 days to make any decisions regarding the incident.

Northcutt has been under pressure recently, after a video surfaced of the district attorney saying he is unwilling to press domestic violence charges in same sex marriage cases. In the video Northcutt says he “disagrees with” same sex marriage, and suggests domestic violence laws exist to “protect the sanctity of marriage.” In the case of married same sex couples, he claims “no marriage exists” to protect.

I would also like to point out the bigotry of the DA.  I posted on him before.   Another one who things Gay people should not have rights and will protect a straight person who harms a gay person based on his hate for the LGBTQ communities.    Hugs

Indoctrination of our children? Hmm, it’s reminding me something.

WV GOP Lawmaker Complains About School Display Urging Respect for LGBTQ Students

Can I protest displays that urge respect for Christians or heterosexuals?  Amounts to what this guy is doing but he would freak out and claim i was persecuting him / his religion.   But he is not doing anything wrong by demanding every hate LGBTQ people.  Hugs

To read just how hateful  and misguidedly he is throwing his religious propaganda around, please go to the link.  The article is short and no way I can grab a clip that would encapsulate the story.    Hugs

Pastor Flips Out Over “Gross” Gender-Neutral Dolls Because His Girls Want Barbie

Pastor Flips Out Over “Gross” Gender-Neutral Dolls Because His Girls Want Barbie

My little girls (I have three) do not want gross, gender ill-defined, Bruce Jenner look-alike dolls… All of my daughters, as feminine as God made them, prefer anorexic, spider-legged, big-bust, eye-hazard Barbies to mutant-Barbies with a dress and a five o’clock shadow.

Whether or not the company genuinely cares or it just sees a new demographic to market to is besides the point. Children who never felt “seen” could be validated by this new line of dolls and that’s reason enough to applaud the attempt.

That validation is precisely what Hall doesn’t want. His three girls don’t speak for all children. He certainly doesn’t speak for all parents. But the market will ultimately decide if these dolls have a long shelf life.

Judge blocks AG Nessel’s deal to stop LGBT discrimination in adoptions

https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2019/09/26/lgbt-home-faith-based-adoption-agencies-michigan/3781088002/

A federal judge says Michigan cannot stop faith-based adoption agencies that have state contracts from refusing to put children in LGBT homes for religious reasons.

In March, Nessel and the American Civil Liberties of Michigan announced a settlement to resolve a suit filed by lesbian couples who alleged they had been turned away. Nessel says such denials are illegal discrimination.

Bill Withers – Lean On Me

I spent about 2 hours today crying, breath ceasing red faced tears running down my face.  I hurt.  I hurt from the memories I have.  I can not change them, the past is what it is.  I am very lucky I do have an out.  I could have gone to the bedroom and gotten Ron.  I have a wonderful adoptive brother, something I never had during my  childhood when I was being abused,  he works long hard hours but he keeps his phone on for me even when he gets his few hours of sleep.  When I was so depressed and upset back in 2014 /2015 I was back to self harming my self ( something I still want to do some days ) he would call me every 4 to 8 hours to make sure I was OK.  That is family .  Something I never had growing up.  One of the persons I grew up with use to laugh at me being a 5  / 6 year old sitting alone on a embankment asking “why it was always me”.   She never released what she thought was funny was really an indictment of what she and others were doing to me.  I was already being sexually abused and beaten.  “Why was it always me”, asks a five / six year old?  That should have raised questions everywhere.  When in 1st grade the school pressed charges of child abuse ( I have written of this before ) the people I lived with took me out of school, then moved to a different state, then moved a gain in a few months to another town in a first state.  This was in the 1960’s.  There was no follow up, even though I had been taken to the local hospital and examined.   It was if no questions had been raised, and the abuse continued.  So today  the memories make me cry.  Hugs

Children living in fear, the US way

The same guy who buys an AR-15 enjoys knowing that children live in fear because the guy who buys an AR-15 has a child’s intellect, stunted maturity, and is a coward. They love intimidating people who are much younger and pose no threat.

You will never hear of a woman buying a gun and going to a school to kill the vulnerable.

Only white men.
