Christian Business in Alabama Refuses to Print LGBTQ-Themed Student Magazine

Christian Business in Alabama Refuses to Print LGBTQ-Themed Student Magazine

The company’s website says it’s “a Christian company that will serve the Lord God Almighty in any way we can.” Unless, of course, someone asks them to publish stories about LGBTQ people, in which case the promise to God no longer applies. The website doesn’t explicitly say what they will and won’t print. But according to Jag Media, the university’s student-run media group, business owner Dewey Phillips has all kinds of anti-Muslim bigotry on his personal Facebook page.

 

But what the hell is going on with these Christians? A local NBC affiliate went to the company’s building and tried to speak with someone there. They ended up getting a passive aggressive dismissal from a woman named Tracey Smith, who said with all the charm of a rabid Rottweiler, “And you find it necessary to be here because?” (Because you’re a bigot, Tracey. That’s why.)

A description of what it is like to be born into the wrong gendered body.

Filed under: Gender, Health, LGBTQ, Sex, Transgender news — Scottie @ 14:45

Hello everyone.  Today on my Toy Box we are talking about transgender and what it means.   I am not transgender and so I am a bad spokesperson for that, but I have felt the adverse abuse from being different than the majority of the population. 

Here I found a great way to explain it and I hope everyone will give it a read.   I lifted it from a blog where the author is asking for money to help with surgery and so I will link to the post but not include it all.

I found the author’s way of describing what it is like to be born of one gender yet have the mind of a different gender.  Let me know what you think.   Hugs

I’ve posted this on Twitter, but in case you’ve never seen it, here’s my way of describing how gender dysphoria feels to me…

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

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Economics, Gender, Greed, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 12:16

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.

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

Bill Withers – Lean On Me

I spent about 2 hours today crying, breath ceasing red faced tears running down my face.  I hurt.  I hurt from the memories I have.  I can not change them, the past is what it is.  I am very lucky I do have an out.  I could have gone to the bedroom and gotten Ron.  I have a wonderful adoptive brother, something I never had during my  childhood when I was being abused,  he works long hard hours but he keeps his phone on for me even when he gets his few hours of sleep.  When I was so depressed and upset back in 2014 /2015 I was back to self harming my self ( something I still want to do some days ) he would call me every 4 to 8 hours to make sure I was OK.  That is family .  Something I never had growing up.  One of the persons I grew up with use to laugh at me being a 5  / 6 year old sitting alone on a embankment asking “why it was always me”.   She never released what she thought was funny was really an indictment of what she and others were doing to me.  I was already being sexually abused and beaten.  “Why was it always me”, asks a five / six year old?  That should have raised questions everywhere.  When in 1st grade the school pressed charges of child abuse ( I have written of this before ) the people I lived with took me out of school, then moved to a different state, then moved a gain in a few months to another town in a first state.  This was in the 1960’s.  There was no follow up, even though I had been taken to the local hospital and examined.   It was if no questions had been raised, and the abuse continued.  So today  the memories make me cry.  Hugs

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

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

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.

Georgia GOP Lawmaker Used Legal Loophole to Help Molesting **Priest** Avoid Prison

** Edit note:  The title uses the word “priest” while the article clearly says that Jason Brothers was a Preacher.   Sorry for any confusions.  Hugs **

Georgia GOP Lawmaker Used Legal Loophole to Help Molesting Priest Avoid Prison

In 2012, Ohio preacher Jason Brothers stayed at the home of a family in Georgia when he was giving a guest sermon at North Mt. Zion Church of God in Hiawassee. When the family’s 14-year-old girl got up for a drink of water that night, Brothers, who was in a wheelchair due to his cerebral palsy, asked her for a hug… then raped her.

The girl only told her parents what happened after they caught her trying to end her own life.

This week, Jason Brothers was sentenced for his crime. The punishment involves no prison time, going back home to Ohio, and remaining on probation for another four years. In other words, nothing of any consequence even though he admitted to two counts of felony sexual battery on a minor.

The reason for that has everything to do with his attorney: Republican House Speaker David Ralston.

And what was Ralston doing when he requested these delays for state business?

Two complaints with the State Bar of Georgia filed by victims in other cases have accused him of campaigning and fundraising when he told judges he couldn’t come to court; Ralston has defended that practice, too, telling The Augusta Chronicle he’d think about stopping “if George Soros will promise that he will not send any more money into Georgia.”

*** Edited to include this information.   Hugs ***

The AJC and Channel 2 also note that, since Ralston became House Speaker in 2010, “he cited his legislative responsibilities to delay 226 cases a total of 966 times.” They also note that he expanded the legal loophole so delays could be granted year-round instead of just when the legislature was in session.
