Again a Christian politician trying to ram their church doctrines in to everyone else’s lives.   They don’t care about anyone’s rights or freedoms only about enforcing their religion on everyone.   I am not going to pull any quotes as the story is from different news sources and each has great information.   Please go to the link and see what this guy and those like him want to do.   Jail librarians for having guys dress up and read stories to kids.   The fact other parents are fine with it and want their kids to be there, this guy knows better because his god.     Hugs

White House posts video of bishop saying ‘demonic spirit’ is behind homosexuality during sermon attended by Mike Pence

Not only are these people willing to lie but they are also unwilling to learn.   They want people like me dead or imprisoned.    They want to make me a crime in itself to further their church doctrines.    This is the government of the country I am a citizen of.    Hugs

‘You never see two male animals coming together,’ preacher incorrectly tells congregation

“It is a demonic spirit that causes a woman to want to live with another woman,” he said. “It is a demonic spirit that causes a man to be attracted to another man.”

The preacher, who has been named as the bishop Jerry Wayne Taylor, claimed the “devil” is trying to “destroy the foundation of marriage” and “cut off the reproduction process”.

“Two men can’t have a baby. Two women can’t have a baby,” he told the congregation at the Holy City Church of God in Christ.

Research has found that over 1,500 species engage in homosexual behaviour, and two lions were pictured having gay sex in Kenya several years ago.

“We’ve got to expose what the devil is doing,” the bishop added after his incorrect comment about the animal kingdom. “I might get beat up out in the wild but that’s alright.”

The religious vice-president, whose wife teaches at a Christian school banning gay and transgender staff and students, has voted against policies supporting LGBT+ and abortion rights in the past.

Donald Trump, the US president, reportedly once joked Mr Pence  “wanted to hang all gay people”.

‘Can You Imagine a Group of Black Men Walking Around With Masks and Guns?’: Gun Rally Sparks Questions of Racism and Privilege

‘Can You Imagine a Group of Black Men Walking Around With Masks and Guns?’: Gun Rally Sparks Questions of Racism and Privilege

It’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and for several hours now countless mostly white, mostly male pro-gun, anti-gun control activists have been marching throughout the streets of Richmond, Virginia, claiming to merely be exercising their Second Amendment rights. Many appear to be dressed in military garb, including camouflage, masks, and donning various types of firearms over their shoulders or at their side.

Many online noted the reception from pro-gun advocates might be far different if the activists were Black instead of white, given the nation’s history – and that of Virginia.

One social media user asked, “Can you imagine a group of black men walking around with masks and guns?”

The article has a bunch of tweets and a few videos of the white mob with guns and the crowds.

When taxpayer funds are used to pay fines and damage awards there is no penalty for the one who did the wrong action or crime.  There is no incentive to change their ways if it doesn’t cost them anything and they can push the cost off on others.   Hugs

This was how I finally started to understand white privilege

Filed under: Bigotry, Cartoons, Criminal, Fascism, Hate, Memes, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason — Scottie @ 07:56

Recently an armed immigrant with a known terrorist group entered the US.   This person was met by people already in the US from this same terrorist group.   They planned to go to a rally in Virginia and open fire.  Glad they were caught and arrested.   So I have to admit tRump’s southern border strategy has caught a terrorist planning an attack on the US right?   The guys must be POC right, most likely MidEastern, right?   NO!  The southern border had nothing to do with this.   tRump is wrong.   The man was white!   He came over the northern border from Canada.   He is a neo-nazi.  The group he belongs to wanted to start a race war.  Are we now going to divert money from the military to build a wall between the US and Canada?   Are we going to build concentration detention camps for the illegals coming over the Canadian border?   The policy on the southern border is about bigotry and racism.   It is the MAGA people saying keep the US a white majority and make it a white ethnostate.   Hugs

Missouri Bill Would Jail Librarians Who Let Kids Check Out “Inappropriate” Books

Again another Christian attempt to force everyone to live by the doctrines of their religion.  They do not care about other parents wishes, LGBTQ+ kids who need to information or see someone like themselves in stories.   They do not care about religious people who have different views from them.  They only crave the power to oppress those you do not like.   Hugs

How would that even work? Baker lays it all out in the bill: Public libraries would have to create a five-member “parental library review board,” via an election, for a two-year term. Those parents would get to decide what’s “age-inappropriate sexual material.” Kids would then be blocked from checking out whatever books are on their list.

If librarians violate any of these rules, they would be subject to a fine of up to $500 or a year in jail.

In theory, then, a heavily Christian community could elect a board that says books featuring LGBTQ characters are “inappropriate.” And then if librarians allow kids to check out Heather Has Two Mommies or I Am Jazz — books meant to help kids understand LGBTQ identities — they would be severely punished for it.

All because a group of conservative parents with sticks up their asses decide to play censor instead of letting kids follow their own curiosity or deferring to the wisdom and expertise of professional librarians.

This isn’t the first time Baker’s had a dumb idea. Years ago, he tried defending a giant Christian cross on public property. Last year, he pushed for Bible classes in school. That bill passed the State House but not the State Senate.

Now, rather than calling for book-burning, he’s just trying to find a loophole that allows Christian bigots to block kids from learning more about topics he doesn’t like.

Knowledge is power. Unless you’re a Christian like him, in which case, it’s the enemy.

‘Repent or die’: Panama religious sect kills seven in bizarre ritual

Filed under: Children, Criminal, Hate, News, Religion — Scottie @ 04:40

Seven people were killed in a bizarre religious ritual in a jungle community in Panama, in which indigenous residents were rounded up by about 10 lay preachers and tortured, beaten, burned and hacked with machetes to make them “repent their sins”. Ten people were arrested.

Police freed 14 members of the Ngabé Buglé indigenous group who had been tied up and beaten with wooden cudgels and Bibles.

“They were performing a ritual inside the structure. In that ritual, there were people being held against their will, being mistreated,” Baloyes said.

“All of these rites were aimed at killing them, if they did not repent their sins,” he said. “There was a naked person, a woman” inside the building, where investigators found machetes, knives and a ritually sacrificed goat.

The rites had been going on since Saturday, and had already resulted in deaths.

About a mile (2km) away from the church building, authorities found a freshly dug grave with the corpses of six children and one adult. The dead included five children as young as a year old, their pregnant mother and a 17-year-old female neighbor.

“They searched this family out to hold a ritual and they massacred them, mistreated them, killed practically the whole family,” said Baloyes, adding that one of the suspects in the killing is the grandfather of the children who were slain.

Florida Republicans submit 4 anti-gay bills on last day to file

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Hate, Health, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Sex, Transgender news, Youth — Scottie @ 11:01

I do not understand the hate in these people, nor their desire to harm others not like them.    Also I am tired of politicians trying to make medical decisions for people instead of leaving it up to the patient and their doctor.    I use to have a muscle relaxer that worked really good for me.   The Florida state legislature in an attempt to look like they were addressing the opioid addiction problem, made it illegal for a pain doctor to prescribe it, while other doctors still can.   I have to use other drugs that do not work as well and have worse side effects.   The drug was not even an opioid.   I shouldn’t be forced to take medical advice from a legislator instead of my doctor.    Hugs

https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/florida-republicans-file-4-anti-gay-bills-last-day-session-n1116256

The bills would repeal LGBTQ antidiscrimination ordinances, criminalize trans health care for minors and allow conversion therapy in places that had banned it.

Seven Republican lawmakers in Florida filed anti-LGBTQ bills late Monday, just hours before the deadline to file new bills for the coming legislative session.

If passed, the bills would ban gender-affirming health care for transgender children, repeal municipal and county ordinances protecting LGBTQ workers, and legalize so-called gay conversion therapy in places that had banned the medically debunked practice.

Equality Florida, the state’s largest LGBTQ rights group, also decried the late-session bill dump.

“This is the most overtly anti-LGBTQ agenda from the Florida Legislature in recent memory,” Jon Harris Maurer, the group’s public policy director, said in a press release. “It runs the gamut from openly hostile legislation that would arrest and imprison doctors for providing medically necessary care, to legislation that would carelessly erase critical local LGBTQ protections.”

“It is outrageous that conservative legislators would threaten their health and safety,” she said in a statement. “Medical professionals, not politicians, should decide what medical care is in the best interest of a patient. Forcing a doctor to deny best practice medical care and deny support to transgender youth can be life-threatening.”

Conservative Republicans across the country have lately moved to introduce bills that would criminalize the provision of medical care for transgender children — including treatments endorsed by all major medical organizations. Florida’s trans health care ban proposal joins a list of similar bills that have been filed in recent weeks by staunchly conservative lawmakers in Tennessee and Texas.

“Sadly, the medical care of transgender youth has been sensationalized and politicized,” Jack Turban, a researcher at Harvard Medical School, said. “Gender-affirming medical care for transgender adolescents is endorsed by major medical organizations, including the Endocrine Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. It should go without saying, but providing standard medical care should not be a felony.”

 

 

 

Stephen Miller Shared Idea Of Shipping Undocumented Immigrants Out of The U.S. on Trains as Scare Tactic, Leaked Breitbart Emails Reveal

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race, Youth — Scottie @ 09:27

https://www.newsweek.com/stephen-miller-warned-undocumented-immigrants-will-replace-existing-demographics-leaked-1482174

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hatewatch” section published its latest series of emails Tuesday which were leaked by an ex-Breitbart editor. The emails reveal Miller pitching white nationalist and vigilantly anti-immigrant ideas to the right-wing publication while he was a rising GOP aide to then-Senator Jeff Sessions and later a top Trump campaign policy adviser on immigration. Miller’s latest leaked messages show he shared an article from far-right website WorldNetDaily with Phyllis Schlafly, who suggested the idea of shipping immigrants out of the U.S. on trains as a scare tactic and expressed fears that migrants might “replace existing demographics.”

As the SPLC’s Michael Hayden notes, Miller refers to a “great replacement” theory frequently expressed by extreme white nationalist figures and in the manifestos of several mass shooter suspects.

“Demanding DREAMers be given citizenship because they ‘know no other home.’ That principle is an endorsement of perpetual birthright citizenship for the foreign-born,” Miller wrote in the email, referring to DACA recipients. “Not only will the U.S.-born children of future illegal immigrants and guest workers be made automatic U.S. citizens, but their foreign-born children will too because, as [former Republican House Majority Leader Eric] Cantor said, ‘Our country was founded on the principle.'”

In a June 2015 email, Miller lamented that “illegal youth” are allowed to remain in the U.S. as he said they soak up “both work permits and generous free cash tax credits.” Miller, writing to Katie McHugh, the former Breitbart editor who leaked the emails, used the subject line, “The Immigration Surge” to make his point.

There is no bottom with @realDonaldTrump. He does it to see how much he can push his enablers toward accepting ever worse behavior. Each instance increases his power over them.

Involuntary Celibates are an ‘emerging domestic terrorism threat’: Texas warns of an ‘Incel Rebellion’

Involuntary Celibates are an ‘emerging domestic terrorism threat’: Texas warns of an ‘Incel Rebellion’

“Although not a new movement, Involuntary Celibates (Incels) are an emerging domestic terrorism threat as current adherents demonstrate marked acts or threats of violence in furtherance of their social grievance,” the report noted. “Once viewed as a criminal threat by many law enforcement authorities, Incels are now seen as a growing domestic terrorism concern due to the ideological nature of recent Incel attacks internationally, nationwide, and in Texas.”

“What begins as a personal grievance due to perceived rejection by women may morph into allegiance to, and attempts to further, an Incel Rebellion. The result has thrust the Incel movement into the realm of domestic terrorism,” the report explained.

“The violence demonstrated by Incels in the past decade, coupled with extremely violent online rhetoric, suggests this particular threat could soon match, or potentially eclipse, the level of lethalness demonstrated by other domestic terrorism types,” the report warned.
