University of Kansas faculty and staff want Chick-fil-A boycotted, calling it a 'bastion of bigotry'
Faculty and staff at the University of Kansas sent a letter to the school's chancellor, calling for a boycott of Chick-fil-A on campus over the company's stance on LGBTQ issues, according to The Hill.
Over the summer, the university allowed Chick-fil-A to open a location inside the student union, and entered a contract agreement with the company to sponsor the "Chick-fil-A coin toss" at home football games in coming years. Faculty and staff have protested Chick-fil-A's support of organizations "hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer LGBTQ people, families, and communities."
Millennials Aren’t That Into God, Patriotism, or Having Kids: Poll
Voting Republican has become an activity analogous to reminiscing about air-raid drills or complaining incessantly about back pain: ordinary for boomers, but a marker of eccentricity among the young.
In 2016, Donald Trump commanded the support of only 28 percent of voters under 30, according to Pew Research. His disapproval rating among Americans under 35 currently hovers around 70 percent. And millennials’ antipathy for our Republican president isn’t personal; the Fox News grandpa-in-chief might be especially unappealing to the rising generation, but the kids don’t have much use for the GOP’s kinder, gentler reactionaries, either. Less than 30 percent of millennials wanted Republicans to retain control of Congress last year. And in broader measures of generational opinion, both millennials and Gen-Zers evince higher levels of support for liberal ideological premises and policy proposals than any older cohorts.
This is a big problem for the GOP. For a while, a rightward drift among boomers — combined with millennials’ woeful turnout rates — kept Republicans from paying much of a price for refusing to update its agenda for the rising generations. But in 2018, the oldest Gen-Zers entered the electorate, and millennial turnout surged. As a result, for the first time ever, millennial, Gen-Z, and Gen-X voters collectively cast more ballots than boomers or “silent types” for the first time ever in a midterm election.
This state of affairs leaves the Republican Party with three options for preserving its medium-term competitiveness in national elections: Adjust its platform to better meet the demands of younger voters, ramp up voter suppression efforts, or pray that the kids will age out of their liberalism.
A patchwork of anti-discrimination laws don't protect LGBTQ workers
While working at a Billings, Montana, auto dealership in 2016, Kathleen O’Donnell said mechanics would frequently sling insults behind her back, calling her “faggot” and referring to her as “Bob” or “Joe” because of her closely cropped hair. A few days before her six-month probationary period at the dealership ended, O’Donnell recalled, her manager, with tears in his eyes, told her he had to fire her because she was gay. It was the first time O’Donnell had been fired from a job.
U.S. SUPREME COURT TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ASKS SUPREME COURT TO LEGALIZE WORKPLACE DISCRIMINATION AGAINST GAY EMPLOYEES
North Carolina police officer fired for following the 'Billy Graham Rule,' lawsuit says
A North Carolina police officer is suing for religious discrimination after he said he was fired for refusing to spend extended time with a woman who isn’t his wife, a practice commonly known as the “Billy Graham Rule.”
Manuel Torres, 51, worked as a deputy for the Lee County Sheriff for five years when his boss asked him to train a female deputy in July 2017. Torres requested a religious accommodation, the suit alleges, saying he “holds the strong and sincere religious belief that the Holy Bible prohibits him, as a married man, from being alone for extended periods with a female who is not his wife.”
Torres, a Baptist who serves as a deacon at his local church, said in the suit that training his colleague would leave the appearance of “sinful conduct.”
Indiana Teen Attacked In Locker Room for Being Gay
An Indiana high school student has faced ridicule after being attacked in a locker room for being gay. After other students started circulating video of the incident around school, the teenage boy’s mother shared the story with Indianapolis TV station WTHR.
“I’m not OK, but I will be,” the student told the news outlet.
And he’s telling anyone else who ever finds themselves the victim of a hate crime to stay strong in spirit.
"Stay true to yourself,” he said, “and if you get hit, do the best you can to make sure it never happens again."

Report alleges sex abuse by 40 Vermont priests since 1950
A report released Thursday by Vermont's Roman Catholic Church found there were "credible and substantiated" allegations of the sexual abuse of minors against 40 priests in the state since 1950.
All but one of those allegations occurred prior to 2000, and none of the priests is still in ministry, the report said. Most of the priests who were named in the report are now dead.
"While most of these allegations took place at least a generation ago, the numbers are still staggering," said Bishop Christopher Coyne, who leads the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington, which covers the entire state.

Neo-Nazi arrested over threat to exterminate Hispanics said 'I thank God every day Trump is president'
A man arrested by the FBI on suspicion of threatening to kill Hispanic people in Miami allegedly wrote that he thanked God every day that Donald Trump was president.
Eric Lin, 35, made a series of threats against the Hispanic community in the Miami area before being arrested in Seattle.
An FBI complaint in Miami says Lin sent Facebook messages to a Hispanic woman threatening her and her family between May and August. The messages praised Adolf Hitler, used racial slurs, and called for the extermination of the Hispanic community, other non-white groups, and “Spanish-speaking groups”.
Man Arrested with Grenade Launcher, Over a Dozen Firearms, and White Supremacist Propaganda
In Romans 1:26-27, Paul said, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.” The Bible says homosexuality is against God’s natural law with severe consequences. You can be forgiven of homosexuality. You can be forgiven of any sin. But to be forgiven of a sin, you must admit you have sinned. The Bible prohibits homosexual behavior.

Black housekeeper denied work because priest’s German shepherd Ceaser is ‘kinda racist’
The home of a Catholic priest was the last place LaShundra Allen ever would have expected to be denied work because of her skin colour, she said.
Allen, who is black, arrived with her white colleague the morning of May 3 for what was supposed to be her first day cleaning Reverend Jacek Kowal’s rectory at the Catholic Church of the Incarnation in Collierville, Tennessee.
The colleague from the cleaning company who accompanied her, Emily Weaver, was quitting and came along to introduce Allen as her replacement.
But the women wouldn’t get far. The secretary stopped them, Allen recounted, and said she would have to go ask Kowal if the new arrangement was OK.
The secretary soon informed them it was actually not OK – because of the priest’s “racist” dog.

Notable Christian songwriter says he's no longer a believer: 'I'm genuinely losing my faith ... and it doesn't bother me'
Marty Sampson — an Australian worship music songwriter known for his work with Hillsong — said, "All I know is what's true to me right now, and Christianity just seems to me like another religion at this point."
Sampson wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post that "I'm genuinely losing my faith...and it doesn't bother me...like, what bothers me now is nothing...I am so happy now, so at peace with the world.. it's crazy." It also appears he's cleared his Instagram account of all posts.
Sampson added, "How many preachers fall? Many. No one talks about it. How many miracles happen. Not many. No one talks about it. Why is the Bible full of contradictions? No one talks about it. How can God be love yet send 4 billion people to a place, all coz they don't believe? No one talks about it. Christians can be the most [judgmental] people on the planet — they can also be some of the most beautiful and loving people...but it's not for me. I am not in anymore."
