Uganda: ‘Kill the Gays’ Law Imposing Death Penalty on Homosexuals *Added information*

The love of their god is their love to hate.  Think of the money and effort to change a countries view on homosexuality to such a fervent dislike and anger against.   Why.  What does it matter to Scott Lively that people a world away on a totally different country on a different continent may have sex with their own genders?  It is sick.  Talk about recruitment, it is not the gays doing it.   Hugs

Uganda: ‘Kill the Gays’ Law Imposing Death Penalty on Homosexuals

Homosexuality was illegal in Uganda under existing colonial laws, he explained, “But nobody was ever arrested or prosecuted based on those old laws. People turned a blind eye to it. Homosexuality was not a political issue.”

That changed in 2009, Rev Kaoma said, when a group of American evangelicals led by Pastor Scott Lively, a self-proclaimed expert on the “gay movement”, held a series of talks in Uganda. Mr Lively warned audiences that the “evil institution” of homosexuality sought to “prey upon” and recruit Ugandan children in a bid to “defeat the marriage-based society”.

Dr Frank Mugisha, director of the LGBT rights organisation, Sexual Minorities Uganda (Smug), recently told The Independent on Sunday, “[The idea] of a gay agenda, of recruiting people to homosexuality – that language wasn’t used in Uganda pre-2009. [Lively] made my work very difficult and was conspiring with my legislators, but [to Ugandans] he was like God himself. People were worshipping him as if he was from heaven.”

American conservatives first arrived in Uganda in significant numbers following the fall, in 1979, of Idi Amin, the Muslim dictator who had banned evangelical Christianity. Among them was Mike Bickle, founder of the Kansas City-based International House of Prayer (IHOP). According to Mr Williams, “Bickle was there on the ground on the day Amin fell… with a group of American Christian leaders, to take the country as a Christian nation.”

US Christian groups have since spent millions on schools, hospitals and orphanages in Uganda. They have also found fertile ground for their religious values. Rev Kaoma said American conservatives may have lost the culture wars on the home-front, but they believe they can win in the developing world. “The battle has been fought on American soil, and then exported to the African continent,” he said.

Virginia Teacher Sues School After Being Fired For Bullying Transgender Student

Virginia Teacher Sues School After Being Fired For Bullying Transgender Student

Are we expected to believe that the cruel religious bigot who believes in lies like the virgin birth, the resurrection, heaven and hell, is really worried about “telling a lie.” What irony.

According to reports, while teaching at the school, Vlaming repeatedly misgendered a female-to-male transgender student by refusing to use his preferred pronouns. Instead, the cruel bully insisted on referring to the male student with female pronouns.

After repeated warnings, Vlaming was disciplined. and eventually fired. Late last year the West Point School Board voted unanimously to terminate Vlaming. At the time Superintendent Laura Abel said she agreed with the decision. In a statement Abel said:

I won’t use male pronouns with a female student that now identifies as a male though I did agree to use the new masculine name but avoid female pronouns. Administration is requiring that I use masculine pronouns in any and every context at school. I was informed that any further instances of using female pronouns would be grounds for termination.

Vlaming tried to defend his cruelty and bigotry by claiming religious reasons prevented him from referring to the student as male.

Kentucky Governor, Again, Promotes Meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” Day

Kentucky Governor, Again, Promotes Meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” Day

Republican Governor Matt Bevin, of Kentucky, a man who constantly promotes Christianity using his office as a platform, is once again supporting the meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” day sponsored by Focus on the Family.

What Bevin doesn’t say is that this day isn’t even necessary. There is no law against kids bringing their Bible to school all the other days. They can always read it. They can always pray. Today’s event is promoted as a way for evangelicals to fight back against Christian persecution, which doesn’t exist here, while simultaneously giving Christians the tools they need to persecute others. No wonder it’s brought to you by the same group known for its opposition to LGBTQ+ rights as well as the rights of other vulnerable groups.

At best, this event is useless. At worst, it’s going to encourage kids to push their religion on others and bully gay people in the name of God. Bevin’s endorsement, with the trappings of the office surrounding him, doesn’t make those problems any better.

 

Teacher Who Won’t Use Trans Student’s Pronouns Sues VA District for Firing Him

Teacher Who Won’t Use Trans Student’s Pronouns Sues VA District for Firing Him

He says his religion prohibited him from treating the student with respect.

In casual conversation or in the hallway, he would use the wrong one when referring to the student. The student eventually dropped Vlaming’s class. He was then fired for insubordination last October. Now he’s suing.

The lawsuit itself is a tough read in part because attorneys for conservative group Alliance Defending Freedom exhibit the same transphobia throughout the document. They pretend that the student flipped a switch — that this is merely a case of a girl becoming a boy, then demanding everyone else play along.

Among the “facts” listed in the lawsuit are “The student is objectively female” and “The student subjectively identifies as male.” That’s not how any of those things work. It’s also a weak argument to say a teacher’s religion prevents him from creating a welcoming environment for the student. It’s hardly an undue burden to ask a conservative Christian teacher to call a student by the right pronoun. Accidents are one thing; this is a complete refusal to acknowledge the student’s basic humanity.

All the student asked was for Vlaming to stop using feminine pronouns in reference to him since they were inaccurate. He refused to do it because his faith-based ignorance mattered more than the student’s well-being

Republicans want retribution for Obama. They want to hunt down Hillary

Republicans don’t care if CIA and DOJ are tarnished by Trump. They don’t care if the State Department is gutted.

Republicans want retribution for Obama. They want to hunt down Hillary. They want a lawless white man to show the world that Republicans are party of white nationalism and misogyny.

I am at that point.

If you support the Republican Party as it exists now, you support white supremacy, fascism, and misogyny.

It’s that simple

Is there no end to the cruelty and hate this administration have for POC?

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Family, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 11:04
A few weeks ago, Sister Salome Limas started fielding some unusual requests at the women’s shelter she runs in Tijuana: The Central American asylum seekers staying at Instituto Madre Asunta began asking if she could let them out in the middle of the night so they could go to court in the United States. The women then showed her paperwork from US immigration officials, directing them to show up to the Mexican side of the San Ysidro Port of Entry at 3:30 a.m.

Limas didn’t understand why they’d need to be there at such a perilous time, especially in the murder capital of the world. For security reasons, Instituto Madre Asunta’s gates are always locked, and people staying at the shelter aren’t allowed to leave at night. So when the women said they had to leave at 3 in the morning, Limas suggested they get a hotel room closer to the port of entry—the walk from the shelter to the border is about 2 miles, through a neighborhood known for drug and alcohol abuse—and stay there for a few hours. It’d simply be too dangerous to leave the shelter with their kids at that hour.

The courthouse in San Diego where immigration hearings take place is a 25-minute drive from the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Until recently, Knox said, most Remain in Mexico asylum seekers had court in the afternoon and were asked to show up around 8 or 9 a.m. “But, like everything in this process, there’s something very intentional in all of this to make it as difficult as possible,” she said, echoing a common refrain among advocates that the Trump administration is making the asylum process additionally burdensome so migrants give up on their cases or don’t show up at the border in the first place.

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. 

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

https://www.newsweek.com/family-teen-who-killed-himself-say-he-was-outed-cyberbullies-shortly-before-death-1461919

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

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.

I have seen this my self

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, News, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 07:59

When I worked in a Surgical ICU I seen this stuff all the time.  We would have people so racist they wouldn’t let a POC of any department or skill level go in their room.  What most people don’t know is you can fire your nurse / doctor / other staff.  Plus I have seen male doctors treat female doctors and staff like crap due to misogyny.   Hard to believe educated people in 2019 can hold such backward views from the past.   Hugs
