    CNN ^ | August 15, 2018 | By Daniel Burke and Susannah Cullinane
    A new grand jury report says that internal documents from six Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania show that more than 300 "predator priests" have been credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 child victims. "We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands," the grand jury report says. "Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades. Monsignors, auxiliary bishops, bishops, archbishops, cardinals have mostly been protected;...

    Donny Deutsch might have set a vulgar new low in expressing contempt for supporters of President Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Deutsch referred to a group of Trump supporters as “fluffers.” For those who might be unfamiliar with the term, “fluffer” is defined as “a person employed on a pornographic film set to ensure that male actors are kept aroused.” After uttering the slur, Deutsch, a sly smile on his face, added, “I just said that word, didn’t I? Well, just metaphorically, of course.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    A Minnesota man felt so comfortable the first time he put on a skirt that he started thinking about why there weren’t more people making skirts for men. In the end, he started making them himself. Joe Quarion first put on a skirt in 2013, for an ultimate Frisbee match. Team captains would occasionally come up with silly dress-up themes for the players, and this time it was skirts or dresses. Joe put on a skirt he had bought from second-hand store Savers and headed on to the field. It was suppose to be a goofy experience, but he realized...

    The London Telegraph ^ | July 12, 2018 | Julian Ryall in Tokyo
    More than 210,000 people have signed a petition on the web site of the South Korean president’s office demanding that an “abominable” gay pride festival scheduled to take place in central Seoul this weekend be cancelled. The three-day Seoul Queer Culture Festival is marking its 19th anniversary this year and will include art exhibitions and a film festival. The highlight of the event will be the Seoul Queer Parade on Saturday afternoon around Seoul Plaza, the historic square in front of the city’s old City Hall that was the fulcrum of the March 1919 independence movement and the June 1987...

    LGBTQ advocates in Kansas City are planning protest Vice President Pence's visit to the city this week. The alternative rock station KRBZ tweeted Monday that it would throw “The Mike Pence Sausage Fest” across the street from where the vice president is expected to deliver remarks on Wednesday. “Mike Pence is coming to Kansas City this Wednesday,” the station tweeted. “Pence is no fan of the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re no fan of his. So we’re throwing The Mike Pence Sausage Fest across the street at Barney Allis Plaza starting at 11a. Stop by and get a free hot dog...
  • Ex-HS teacher who said on Facebook that homosexuality is a sin settles suit

    A former Union High School teacher who resigned nearly six years ago after posting anti-gay comments on social media has settled her long-standing lawsuit against the district for $132,500. Jenye "Viki" Knox will receive $24,500 for back wages, $63,833.33 for claims of emotional distress and $44,166.67 for attorney's fees, according to court papers. The news was first reported by NJ Civil Settlements, which compiles a partial list of settlements paid by New Jersey government agencies and their insurers to those who have sued them. Knox, a 56-year-old Union Township resident who taught special education, described homosexuality as a "perverted spirit"...

    So you can imagine how upsetting it was for me when Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, proudly came out as a homophobe in 2012 by claiming, “We are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” Even worse, the company put its money where Cathy’s vile mouth was by donating millions of dollars each year...

    It was little more than a year ago that South Korean police descended on the home of Lee Jin-young in Seoul, arrested him and placed him in solitary confinement. Lee is a long-time activist who had already been jailed in the 1980s for promoting democracy, but this time he was thrown in prison for different reasons. His so-called crime was running Labor Books, an online library of information on North Korea. Lee was charged with spreading literature that “benefitted the enemy” and could have faced years in prison until a court eventually quashed the charges against him. Sadly, this is...

    SINGAPORE (Reuters) - In their first moments of meeting each other, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un both sought to project a sense of command but displayed some anxiety at the start of their high-stakes summit in Singapore. Body language experts said that in the 13 seconds or so the U.S. president held on to the hand of Kim for the first time, he projected his usual dominance by reaching out first, and patting the North Korean leader's shoulder. Not to be outdone, Kim firmly pumped Trump's hand, looking him straight in the eye for...

    The LGBTQ movement tries to paint itself as the reasonable side of the discussion, but its confused, pugnacious arguments often manifest the opposite. On June 6th, The Daily Beast published an article by legal affairs columnist Jay Michaelson with the headline, “If Trump Won’t Proclaim Pride Month, Let’s Proclaim LGBT Rage Month Instead.” In the article, Michaelson, a member of the LGBTQ community, complained about how “our president and his staff have been unable to issue a meaningless proclamation that June is Pride Month,” and ranted against Christians and the Trump administration for their opposition to the LGBTQ movement.

    Karl Schmid, an on-camera reporter for ABC’s Los Angeles affiliate, came out as HIV positive on Friday night in a powerful Facebook post about stigma and acceptance. The 37-year-old Australian import covers human interest stories and Hollywood on ABC7, reporting from events like the Academy Awards and the annual Vanity Fair Oscar party. After a decade living with HIV, Schmid said he came forward despite numerous industry peers urging him to stay quiet. “For 10 years I’ve struggled with ‘do I or don’t I?’ For ten years the stigma and industry professionals have said, ‘don’t! It’ll ruin you,”’ wrote Schmid....

    Anderson Cooper is a single man. The CNN anchor and his boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, have called it quits after nine years together. “Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago,” Cooper, 50, said in a statement to Us on Thursday, March 15. “We are still family to each other, and love each other very much. We remain the best of friends, and will continue to share much of our lives together.” The best of friends, indeed. The journalist and the 45-year-old nightclub owner, who were first linked in 2009, attended a benefit for the Windward School in New York...

    Move over Hadid sisters, you’re no longer the only ones with upfront assets to flash. As evidenced by recent splashy, sexy looks sported by Harry Styles, a number of preening professional athletes and models at recent fashion shows, male cleavage is busting out on the studliest stars. Shirts unbuttoned to the sternum and undone jackets allow well-built men to show off nicely sculpted chest muscles. And women in the rag trade are not complaining. “I am absolutely into it,” gushes stylist Calyann Barnett, who dresses elite athletes such as Usain Bolt, Rajon Rondo and Victor Oladipo. “When you decide to...

    The Trump administration told a U.S. appeals court that federal law does not ban discrimination against gay employees, a sharp reversal of the position former President Barack Obama took on a key civil rights issue. The U.S. Department of Justice, in a friend of the court brief, told the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan on Wednesday that Congress never intended Title VII, which bans sex discrimination in the workplace, to apply to gay workers. The department also said the court owed no deference to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a federal agency that enforces Title VII...

    New Democrats are pushing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to publicly condemn Donald Trump's move to bar transgender individuals from serving in the U.S. military, a decision the party's defence critic says is based on "ignorance and hate." "Prime Minister Trudeau must denounce this policy immediately in order to demonstrate that Canada not only respects human rights but that we will stand up against discrimination, even when the source is our closest neighbour and strongest ally," Randall Garrison said in a statement Wednesday. Garrison, who also serves as the NDP critic for LGBTQ issues, said the Trump administration is using hate...

    Some of the most aggressive cultural propaganda today is coming from magazines for teenagers. The biggest crusade is about sex (yes, as soon as possible) and gender, where biology is completely negotiable, and incorrect or bizarre pronouns are nonnegotiable. Teen Vogue Digital Editorial Director Phil Picardi declared: "For the past year or so, we've made a concerted effort to limit (and, eventually, banish) heteronormativity from all of our content ... we use gender neutral pronouns in almost all contexts. Our readers have appreciated the shift, and often help police our language." Likewise, Seventeen magazine Executive Editor Joey Bartolomeo announced, "We...
  • US Support for Same-Sex Marriage Soars; Most Catholics Approve

    06/29/2017 7:43:12 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 90 replies
    Public approval for same-sex marriage has skyrocketed in the US, with nearly two-thirds of respondents favoring legal recognition of homosexual unions in a new survey. The Pew Research study found that 62% of Americans favored same-sex marriage, with only 32% opposed. The result represents a stunning change from 2010, when only a minority (42%) supported same-sex marriage—and even from last year, when the figure stood at 55%. Self-identified Catholics were even more likely than the overall sample to favor same-sex unions. Roughly two-thirds of Catholics (67%) and mainline Protestants (68%) supported legal recognition of same-sex unions. Among religious groups, only...
