Tennessee priest bans black housekeeper from his property — then blames his ‘racist dog’

Well if the dog is racist I bet the owner is also!   Has he never heard of leashing, restraining, crating the dog while the people work.  What does he do if a needed repair person is black?   It seems clear he is a racist bigot and feels he needs to use the dog for an excuse.   Hugs

Tennessee priest bans black housekeeper from his property — then blames his ‘racist dog’

In an interview with housekeeper LaShundra Allen, who asked that her face not be shown, she explained that she was told not to enter the home of Rev. Jacek Kowal, a pastor at the Catholic Church of the Incarnation while she was being trained to replace the current housekeeper.

“I was just supposed to clean the church and I was supposed to go to the pastor’s house and clean as well,” Allen explained. “They were just like, ‘Well, I’m not really sure how to say this,’ kind of like in a joking way, ‘But Father Jacek doesn’t want black people cleaning the house because his dog is racist.’”

“Two church office employees then reiterated that Father Jacek ‘did not want (Ms. Allen) there’ and that they needed to leave. Both Ms. Allen and Ms. Weaver were shocked, humiliated, and felt severely disrespected by this treatment and the statements,” the letter added.

Revealed: Republican lawmaker aided group training young men for ‘biblical warfare’

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/aug/13/matt-shea-biblical-war-washington-team-rugged

The Republican politician Matt Shea connected close allies with a group offering training to young men in “biblical warfare” that includes how to use knives, pistols and rifles, with lessons based in part on the teachings of a Georgia-based neo-Confederate pastor, emails obtained by the Guardian reveal.

Shea, who is an elected Washington state representative, later made videos in support of the group, and appeared alongside them at a gathering at a religious community in remote eastern Washington. He also paid the founder of the group money from his campaign fund in 2018.

In his email to Shea, however, Caughran offers a different description, saying that the group exists “to provide patriotic and biblical training on war for young men”.

Caughran also wrote: “There will be scenarios where every participant will have to fight against one of the most barbaric enemies that are invading our country, Muslims terrorists (sic)”.

In his email to Shea, Caughran goes on to list weapons training as part of the event for attendees. The training will “show them how to work better as a team, both in achieving physically demanding tasks and on the battlefield. Those who attend will learn combatives, the use of a knife in defense, close quarters shooting with rifle and pistol and how to work effectively in teams of 2, 3 and 4.”

In 2018, representative Shea was revealed to have distributed a document entitled “Biblical Basis for War”, which appeared to lay out a plan for a theocratic takeover, including the instruction to “kill all males”. Shea denied this interpretation of the document, saying instead that the material was notes for a sermon.

Last May, the Guardian revealed that at the 2018 God and Country event, Shea warned of civil unrest while Robertson urged the audience to prepare for civil war.

Arkansas jailer’s wife pulls gun and detains four black children going door-to-door for school fundraiser

A jail administrator’s wife in Arkansas was arrested this week after she allegedly pulled a gun and detained four black students who were going door-to-door for a school fundraiser.

Wynne Police Chief Jackie Clark issued a media statement saying that officers responded to a “suspicious persons” report and found 46-year old Jerri Kelly holding a gun on four juveniles who were lying on the ground, WMC reported.

After the officer let the children stand up, they explained that they were selling discounted cards for school football games.

 

 

This was two years ago and things have gotten worse. Save the children, speak out against concentration camps.

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.”

The US government took, trafficked, and profited, then lost nearly 1,500 children. There could be more
