Citing the Bible, TN School Board Member Rejects Gay-Straight Alliance Club

Again a person using their religious beliefs to force others to obey their version of god.  This person says his god comes before all state laws, federal laws, the bill of rights, and even the constitution.   He wants a theocracy built on his his god and his version , forcing everyone to do as he sees fit.   He is a religious asshole.  There is more at the link below.     Hugs

Tecky Hicks, who works as a Baptist pastor, said that if the GSA group was formed, he would urge parents to pull their kids out of school.

Hicks told board members he took the same oath as [Vice Chairman Debbie] Shedden, but he believes the Bible supersedes the Constitution of the U.S., the Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, school board policy, the state constitution “and everything else.”

“Therefore, based on that, there’s no way under God’s heaven I can approve any such club in our schools,” Hicks told the board. “I’ve got a daughter who has a child in second grade this year, and she has already made the decision that if something like this is approved by our board, she’s pulling her kid out of school. I would suggest, and I’ll make it a public statement, that every person in the county who has that privilege — do it.

“I’ll take my stand on what I believe above and beyond anything man has ever made because the Bible plainly teaches that we are to subject ourselves to the authority that’s over us as long as the authority doesn’t overstep the bounds of what God has said it ought to be. God settled that over 2,000 years ago, folks, and I’m going to stand on it until hell freezes over.

He took an oath… and then promptly refused to follow it because being a religious bigot matters more than doing what’s best for students. That’s his philosophy. While the district might be better off without families that think like him, it’s a sad statement that the existence of a club for students he thinks are Hell-bound is enough to make a push for homeschooling. (Would he say the same thing about a club for atheists? Jews? Hindus?)

My heart breaks. Have we not had enough of this. How can you be so cruel to bully a little child because of their race. I do not know how much more of this I can take and stay sane.

Seriously disturbing video. Watch: High School Staff Forces Bathroom Stall Door Open While Trans Girl Uses Toilet

She was only trying to use the bathroom when school staff forced open the stall door, exposing the minor to several leering adult staff members.

In a deplorable demonstration of transgender discrimination and poor judgment, staff members at Osseo Senior High School in Maple Grove, Minnesota, can be seen on video forcing open a bathroom stall door because a transgender teen was using the toilet.

The transgender teen said she was “scared and violated” when the group of adults forcibly opened a private stall while she used the bathroom in her Minnesota school.

The teen captured her horrifying ordeal on video:   Remember to turn on the sound.  

***Please go to the link above to view the video as it is not posting correctly here. ***

more information at the link.   A bunch of perverts force open a bathroom stall while a child is using the toilet.    They then keep the door open.   This is the nightmare that republicans keep saying will happen if you let trans people use the bathroom they identify with, but it is not the trans person doing this, it is the horrible bigots.    The bigots are a threat.   Think of the huge outrage there would be if they had done that to a non-trans student.     Hugs

Hair Furor Floats Idea Of State Television Network

Donald Trump, as we’ve known for 40 years, hates to cede the spotlight. So just as NASA was making an ultra-rare successful Mars landing that was carried live on some outlets, the president of the United States decided to float the idea of a state-run television network “to show the world the way we really are, GREAT.”

Trump’s idea — or that of whomever he heard say it this morning — would be laughable if it weren’t so ludicrous. And authoritarian. His first tweet is a slam at CNN, which “doesn’t do great based on ratings, outside the U.S.,” and he appears to think the real ratings gold could come from Citizens of the World being told what’s really going on here in ‘Murica.

Autopsy Reveals Transgender Woman Was Beaten In ICE Custody, Died After Days Of Untreated Dehydration

Why, damn it why does this stuff have to happen.  She was seeking asylum because a gang got her, and four of them raped her.  So she get to our country, and gets beaten to death at an ICE detention facility.  The country she thought would be her salvation killed her just as the gangs she ran from would have.   Sad hurting hugs.

https://www.joemygod.com/2018/11/autopsy-reveals-transgender-woman-was-beaten-in-ice-custody-died-after-days-of-untreated-dehydration/

A transgender woman who died in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody at a privately operated detention center was likely physically abused there, according an autopsy report released Monday, and died after several days of severe, untreated dehydration.

Roxsana Hernández Rodriguez, a 33-year-old transgender woman from Honduras, died on May 25, nine days after being transferred to a dedicated unit for transgender women at the Cibola County Correctional Center in New Mexico, which is operated under contract by CoreCivic, the second-largest private prison company in the United States.

Dead Missionary John Chau’s Last Letter Home Reveals Outsized Zeal and Naiveté

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/11/24/dead-missionary-john-chaus-last-letter-home-reveals-outsized-zeal-and-naivete/

 

Chau had no business going where he went. He considered himself above the law. He made a nuisance of himself by bothering people who had done nothing to him, and who wished nothing more than to be left in peace. He wouldn’t take no for an answer.

Above all, by attempting to foist himself upon the tribespeople, he risked wiping out every one of them, as the hyper-isolated islanders likely have no resistance to viral illnesses like the measles and influenza.

Did Chau, in his research, not come across or consider this salient fact? Do they not teach basic biology at Oral Roberts? Or does the chance of accidental genocide pale next to the exciting prospect of bagging souls for Jesus?

This is illegal. Kelly is not in the chain of command, he has no authority to issue an order. Plus it violates the law. It is another step to fascism and martial law.

FLORIDA: ROCKET LAUNCHER, PIPE BOMBS, FIREARMS SEIZED IN RAIDS ON WHITE SUPREMACIST GANGS

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Gun Control, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Race, Religion — Scottie @ 08:18

Police found a weapons cache including a rocket launcher and pipe bombs in a drugs trafficking sting targeting Florida white supremacist gangs. 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida announced Thursday that 39 members of the Unforgiven and United Aryan Brotherhood gang had been arrested as part of the operation. 

Officers seized more than 100 firearms, a rocket launcher and several pipe bombs as part of the operation centres in Pasco County, Florida, according to a statement. 

Shows there was no serious threat in the first place. Also the Sec. of Homeland Security wanted to break the law by having armed military backing up the customs and border patrol. The military refused to break the law.

The document also says: “The FBI has warned local law enforcement agencies that the Proud Boys are actively recruiting in the Pacific north-west”, and: “Proud Boys members have contributed to the recent escalation of violence at political rallies held on college campuses, and in cities like Charlottesville, Virginia, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington.”
