  • So, LGBT Activists Do Want to Put Christians in Jail

    The Stream ^ | August 2017 | Michael Brown
    During a TV interview in 2011, I quoted the words of a Christian lawyer who said that just as gay activists were once put in jail, they now want to put us in jail. For making this comment, I was vilified by Right Wing Watch, mocked by gay activists, and ridiculed by others. I wonder what those critics are saying today in light of a recently proposed California bill that would send nursing home caregivers to jail for “misgendering” their nursing home patients. As a Daily Caller headline announces, “California Could Start Jailing People Who Don’t Use Transgender Pronouns.”

    At least four police vans responded to the march as it made its way through Leeds. Many supporters brandished "Free Tommy" placards and demonstrators chanted "let Tommy out" at police officers. The march was organised by the group Proud British, which says on Facebook that its purpose is to "voice freedom of speech" and "stop the strain on the NHS, schools and our public services." One supporter of Robinson told a reporter: "Journalist? F*** off — you're all scum". Some protestors were heard making racist chants. Crowds chanted "BBC BBC" in protest at what they see as the corporation's bias...

    TurkeyÂ’s Supreme Electoral Council (YSK) has ruled that a Kurdish candidate for the Turkish presidency cannot phone in to a talk programme from jail, opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet said . Selahattin DemirtaĹź was planning to use his weekly right to a 10-minute phone call to call in to Fox TV and take part in its election programme Leaders on Fox.

    Isn’t Tommy Robinson’s life worth protecting with a body cam, Prime Minister Theresa May? Where is Tommy Robinson? A question whose answer should be demanded rather than merely asked. We all know where Prince Harry is but not where Tommy, arrested Friday outside a court in Leeds, England, is. Modern day Merry England has become far more nightmare than fairytale, as it steadily works its way toward ugly police state status.

    A Utah man who has been incarcerated in a Venezuelan jail since 2016 was on a flight home to the U.S., Venezuelan officials said Saturday. Joshua Holt, 26, has been jailed in Venezuela after he traveled to the South American country in the summer of 2016 to marry Thamara Candelo, whom he met on a website for Mormon singles. The two planned to return to the U.S. after getting married, but where jailed in El Hilcolde on what human rights groups said were largely trumped-up charges. “Good news about the release of the American hostage from Venezuela. Should be landing...

    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison said at a Democratic event Monday that Republicans doing “Bible studies” in prisons is hurting Democrats’ chances at winning voters. “You know, back when I was in Minnesota State Legislature, I got the impression that maybe Democrats could possibly have an advantage with folks in this area who might vote for us,” Ellison said. “Not true. We will have to fight for their vote like we do with every other vote because I learned that a lot of Republicans will go to jails and do Bible studies and other things.”

    ISTANBUL (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said the United States should look at its own actions if it wants the return of an American Christian pastor who has been jailed in Turkey for suspected links to a 2016 failed coup. Erdogan made the comment in a live interview with broadcaster NTV. Andrew Brunson, who has lived in Turkey for more than two decades, was indicted on charges of helping the group that Ankara holds responsible for the failed coup against Erdogan. He faces up to 35 years in prison. Brunson denies the charges.

    A video has surfaced of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel attending a meeting of Muslims, where both Israel and one of his deputies spoke in Arabic. The deputy said that Israel pledged to keep young people out of jail and to put “God first, your family second and the community third.” Israel credits his deputy Nezar Hamze as a likeminded individual who is on the same mission as Israel. Israel compares himself and Hamze to lions on a mission. Both Israel and Namze boast that they keep young people out of jail, rather than put them in. “I want you...

    SALINAS, Calif. — Monterey County Sheriff Steve Bernal announced Monday that he will no longer allow a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent to have a desk in the Monterey County Jail. A new California law going into effect January 1, 2018, SB54, declares California as a "sanctuary state." Bernal said his decision to remove the ICE agent's desk was a result of complying with SB54, as well as consulting with several stakeholders who advocate for immigrants' rights on the Central Coast. An ICE agent was given a desk at the Monterey County Jail two years ago, shortly after Bernal...

Astacio's lawyer argued that she was not immediately given terms of her probation when she was sentenced in July. How did she end up in court again?

    While Hillary Clinton has been in Europe promoting her new book, What Happened, the heavily fortified wall of protection around her is crumbling. Late Wednesday night, the Justice Department finally lifted a gag order that prevented a FBI informant from testifying to Congress about Russian attempts to offer bribes, kickbacks, and other incentives to secure approval for the highly controversial Uranium One deal. This arrangement gave a Russian company ownership of the uranium mining company, with access to 20% of our country’s total supply. Of course, enriched uranium is an essential element than can be used for both nuclear power...
