Christian Hate-Preacher: To Those Who Respect Gay People, “Are You Insane?”

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 07:37

Again another religious leader who demands respect for his religion, demands Christianity be given special privileges but can not even treat LGBTQ people with respect, instead hatefully demanding their elimination.  Religious hate on full display.  

Christian Hate-Preacher: To Those Who Respect Gay People, “Are You Insane?”

Pastor Tommy McMurtry of Liberty Baptist Church in Illinois is one of those New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist preachers whose every sermon seems to be a hate-filled diatribe against LGBTQ people. A few months ago, he delivered a sermon in which he longed for the good old days when being anti-gay was respected: Those were the days, he said, when we “put [gay people] in their place: six feet under. And unfortunately, we have forgotten that in our country.”

He’s still preaching the same sort of hate in the name of Christianity.

Trans Student Sues WV School After Asst. Principal Demands “Proof” of His Gender

The asshole was suspended for four days, lost his job, then was rehired and he thinks the only thing he did wrong in this was raise his voice by yelling at the boy.    Prick got hired back so he can do it again.   Hugs

Trans Student Sues WV School After Asst. Principal Demands “Proof” of His Gender

Last year, a transgender student at Liberty High School in West Virginia claimed he was “cornered, harassed and intimidated” in a bathroom by Assistant Principal Lee Livengood. After the student walked out of the stall in the boys’ restroom during a band trip, Livengood was allegedly standing there (outside the stall) to ask why he was in that restroom.

He challenged the student to “come out here and use the urinal” to prove that he was a boy. Again, this was an older man, in a position of authority, blocking a student from coming out of a stall and leaving the bathroom, all because he didn’t accept the student’s gender identity.

Even after a chaperone arrived on the scene, Livengood supposedly said to the student, “I’m not going to lie, you freak me out.”

“This action is a last resort,” said Loree Stark, ACLU-WV legal director. “Time and time again, we have attempted in good faith to work with Harrison County Schools to create a safe environment for Michael and others like him, but school officials have not taken this seriously.”

“What happened to Michael shouldn’t happen to any kid,” [attorney Teresa] Toriseva said. “For four long minutes, Michael was held against his will by a man twice his size and who was in a position of authority, who was screaming at him and demanding he expose himself.

“We would not tolerate this kind of behavior from a student, and we certainly shouldn’t tolerate it from an assistant principal, and yet the Harrison County School Board has done just that.”

MINNESOTA: Appeals Court Rules Hate Group Can Sue To Overturn State LGBT Anti-Discrimination Protections

And the hate continues.  Why the flying fuck do people claiming to be “religious” hate so much?  I am so tired of them ruining my life, my rights, my country, and my ability to have life, liberty, and happiness.  Some how to them being denied the ability to discriminate and harm the LGBTQ in public businesses is stopping their right to worship their god?   What a hateful prick their god is.   These people started this business and never did a video just so they could challenge treating LGBTQ people fairly the same as they treat anyone else.   It is like we are having a whole new era of “Jim crow laws” aimed at the LGBTQ.   I wonder if my marriage will survive this take over of our secular government by religion.  Will we really be living in the fiction Handmaidens tale show?  I will post the link for those interested , it is a short post, but I just can’t deal with it today.   Hugs

Trump To SCOTUS: Legalize Firing People For Being Gay

Welcome to the dark ages again!  I guess I and people like me will be the next ones int he concentration camps with the brown people.  I wonder if I will have to wear a pink triangle?  Seriously this is the person the Log Cabin Republicans just endorsed?   This is the guy that just this week bragged about how great he was for the gays?  I am watching the rights we fought decades for disappear in three short years.  It hurts people, it really hurts.   Thanks to the religious people like Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo  who seem driven to make life worse for others not like them.  Hugs

Trump To SCOTUS: Legalize Firing People For Being Gay

Dominic Holden reports at Buzzfeed News:

The Trump administration took its hardest line yet to legalize anti-gay discrimination on Friday when it asked the Supreme Court to declare that federal law allows private companies to fire workers based only on their sexual orientation. An amicus brief filed by the DOJ weighs in on two cases involving gay workers and what is meant by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination “because of sex.”

The administration argues courts nationwide should stop reading the civil rights law to protect gay, lesbian, and bisexual workers from bias because it was not originally intended to do so. That view conflicts with some lower court rulings that found targeting someone for their sexual orientation is an illegal form of both sex discrimination and sex stereotyping under Title VII.

Hate Group Leader Mat Staver Celebrates: Trump Has Already Fulfilled About 90% Of Our Anti-LGBT Wish List

Another “Christian” leader bragging about how much they have managed to hurt other people they disagree with.   Bragging about being able to discriminate against, marginalize, and demean / debase a group of people.   Hugs

Hate Group Leader Mat Staver Celebrates: Trump Has Already Fulfilled About 90% Of Our Anti-LGBT Wish List

The Associated Press reports:

When Donald Trump assumed the presidency, conservative religious leaders drew up “wish lists’ of steps they hoped he’d take to oppose abortion and rein in the LGBTQ-rights movement. With a flurry of recent actions, Trump’s administration is now winning their praise for aggressively fulfilling many of their goals.

Mat Staver, president of the legal advocacy organization Liberty Counsel, said Trump has fulfilled about 90% of the goals on a list that Staver and other conservative leaders compiled.

Another bigotry move by hating tRump people. Trump Administration Petitions Supreme Court To Legalize Firing People Merely For Being Transgender

Trump Administration Petitions Supreme Court To Legalize Firing People Merely For Being Transgender

Dominic Holden reports at Buzzfeed News:

The Trump administration on Friday took one of its most aggressive steps yet to legalize anti-transgender discrimination by telling the Supreme Court that federal law allows firing workers solely for being transgender, arguing a Michigan funeral home could fire a transgender woman because she wanted to wear women’s clothing on the job.

Although the administration was expected to take the stance — and had previously said firing workers on the basis of gender identity is legal under federal law — the latest court filing asks the nation’s top court to establish federal case law in a potentially sweeping setback for LGBTQ rights nationwide.

Trump Administration Proposes Rule Allowing Federal Contractors To Discriminate Against LGBTs And Others

Trump Administration Proposes Rule Allowing Federal Contractors To Discriminate Against LGBTs And Others

Dominic Holden reports at Buzzfeed News:

The Trump administration on Wednesday formally proposed a new rule to let businesses with federal contracts cite religious objections as a valid reason to discriminate against their workers on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, LGBTQ status, and other characteristics — thereby skirting worker protections created by past presidents.

But the Trump administration makes clear in the draft rule that a corporation needn’t focus entirely on religion to qualify, saying, “The contractor must be organized for a religious purpose, meaning that it was conceived with a self-identified religious purpose. This need not be the contractor’s only purpose.”

Thousands of immigrants suffer in solitary confinement in U.S. detention centers. Newly obtained documents show that ICE detainees are sometimes placed in solitary for reasons that have nothing to do with rule violations.

There is far more at the link below than I quoted.  The horror and abuse of these people at the hands of the US is beyond shocking / stunning.   It is the systematic degradation and humiliation of certain groups to dehumanize, terrorize, and express bigotry and hatred for them.   Again government thugs get to commit actions forbidden to do to prisoners of war.  We have to stop this.  History will show what monsters we became during this time.    Hugs

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/immigration/thousands-immigrants-suffer-solitary-confinement-u-s-detention-centers-n1007881

The newly obtained documents paint a disturbing portrait of a system where detainees are sometimes forced into extended periods of isolation for reasons that have nothing to do with violating any rules.

Disabled immigrants in need of a wheelchair or cane. Those who identify as gay. Those who report abuse from guards or other detainees.

Only half of the cases involved punishment for rule violations. The other half were unrelated to disciplinary concerns — they involve the mentally ill, the disabled or others who were sent to solitary largely for what ICE described as safety reasons.

A Guatemalan man spent two months in solitary confinement at a county jail in Maryland. The reason: He had a prosthetic leg.

A mentally ill Ukrainian man was put in isolation for 15 days at a detention facility in Arizona. His offense: putting half a green pepper in one of his socks.

In nearly a third of the cases, segregated detainees were determined by ICE to have a mental illness, a population especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of isolation.

“We have created and continue to support a system that involves widespread abuse of human beings,” said Ellen Gallagher, a policy adviser at the Department of Homeland Security.

Gallagher, who is speaking publicly for the first time, has spent the past five years trying to sound the alarm within the federal government about the rampant use of solitary confinement on vulnerable people in ICE custody.

“People were being brutalized,” she said.

Proud Boys Make Threatening Visit To Critic’s Home

Proud Boys Make Threatening Visit To Critic’s Home

The Daily Beast reports:

Members of the far-right Proud Boys men’s group allegedly made a threatening late-night visit recently to the home of one of their critics, the latest in the group’s escalating actions against its detractors.

Gwen Snyder, an amateur researcher in Philadelphia who tracks the group’s movements, wasn’t at home when a group of men visited her residence around 11 p.m. on June 29.

Instead, the men talked to her neighbor, according to Snyder, and warned that Snyder needed to stop posting the names of Proud Boys members and other information on Twitter. “You tell that fat bitch she better stop,” one of the Proud Boys allegedly said, according to Snyder.

Of what country, not the US
