Bishop: North Carolina priest kept on leave on abuse claims
A Catholic priest in North Carolina will remain on administrative leave after allegations of sexual abuse against him were revealed last year, the Charlotte diocese's bishop said.
Bishop Peter Jugis made the announcement to St. Matthew parishioners in a letter Wednesday, writing that he had accepted the recommendation of the diocese’s Lay Review Board to keep the Rev. Patrick Hoare out of ministry, The Charlotte Observer reported.
Hoare was originally put on administrative leave in December after the diocese received “an allegation against him of child sexual abuse that was said to have occurred in Pennsylvania more than 25 years ago, before Father Hoare entered ministry” the Charlotte Observer quoted Jugis as writing.

The world isn't laughing at America -- it's pitying us
It's like the Fourth of July, Bonfire Night, Diwali and Chinese New Year -- every night.
In the oppressive heat of the Covid-19 summer, US cities are suddenly reverberating with the crack and boom of fireworks that blast on into the small hours. Authorities haven't got a clue where the explosives are coming from.
It's perhaps not surprising that some people are letting off steam -- or rockets and firecrackers -- after months stuck at home under shutdowns. But the nightly cacophony is not just a nuisance to those whose nerves are already stretched to the breaking point by recent months -- they can cause injuries and house fires. In Brooklyn, troublemakers appeared to target a homeless man with a thrown firecracker.
One of Trump's big election lines in 2016 was that the world was laughing at America. That wasn't true, but now the reality is worse: A bemused world is pitying America.
Gay trans teen mocked on the street while cis woman laughs and points at his crotch in hate-filled, disturbing video
Gay trans man Jasper Lauter has shared a video of the horrific moment when two cisgender people verbally assaulted him in a hate-filled, transphobic incident in California.
Lauter, who lives in Fairfax, California, was putting rainbow flags up around his hometown on June 20 when he noticed a bake sale benefiting the Black Lives Matter movement had attracted negative attention.
When Lauter noticed that a male and a female were giving a hard time to the volunteers, he decided to intervene.

Kelli Ward Urged Anti-Lockdown Protesters to Dress as Health-Care Workers
Dr. Kelli Ward, the far-right chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party, further emboldened conservative protesters who are demanding that governors reopen states by telling them to dress as health-care workers to trick the media. “Planning protest to #ReOpenAmerica? EVERYONE wear scrubs & masks - the media doesn’t care if you are really in healthcare or not - it’s the “message” that matters!” she wrote on Twitter on Friday. Ward, who was previously a state senator, has repeatedly spread conspiracy theories and last week accused health-care workers attending rallies to resist protesters as “actors playing parts.”

Younger blacks and Latinos are dying of COVID-19 at higher rates in California
Black and Latino Californians ages 18 to 64 are dying more frequently of COVID-19 than their white and Asian counterparts relative to their share of the population, a Times analysis of state health department data shows.
Newly released figures on the grim toll of the novel coronavirus show once again profound disparities in people’s odds of survival that fall along racial and ethnic lines. In this case, the data also belie the conventional wisdom that old age is the primary risk factor for death.
When accounting for each group’s percentage of the population, blacks and Latinos under the age of 65 had a higher share of fatalities than even older blacks and Latinos. The trend is particularly noticeable among those age 18 to 49, The Times analysis found.

Teenager goes ‘mental’ on mom over birthday present: ‘A few hateful words’
The Redditor started his story by explaining that he loves baking, a passion that led him to ask for a stand mixer for his birthday. He ultimately got the appliance — a white model that cost around £80 ($100) — from his uncle and immediately began using it often.
Months later, the teen went to make croissants with his mixer only to find the device was missing.
“I looked everywhere for it and couldn’t find it,” he wrote. “I asked my mom where it was and she said she gave it away to charity. I WENT MENTAL.”
The 15-year-old wrote that he then confronted his mom with “a few hateful words.” His mother said that the mixer didn’t match the color scheme in the house and, as part of her kitchen, was hers to do what she wanted with.
Christian Privilege Is Spreading Like a Virus
At the end of March, President Trump attempted to reassure Americans who are feeling the stress of the coronavirus pandemic by inviting Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, to speak at his daily press briefing.
Calling America a “nation [that] had turned his back on God,” Mr. Lindell encouraged people to “use this time at home to get back in the Word, read our Bibles, and spend time with our families.”
“Christian privilege” is the term atheists and nonreligious people frequently use to describe how Christian viewpoints, particularly conservative evangelical ones like those expressed by Lindell and Graham, are favored over nonreligious viewpoints in our law and culture. If you ask most Americans, they believe that the separation of church and state enshrined in the U.S. Constitution should apply to everyone and prevent the government from giving taxpayer dollars or special favoritism to churches. Sadly, this is less and less true.
Only about 20% in my gay senior pit have taken precautions to fight coronavirus. Is it mental health ignorance with suicidal tendencies or the grandeur delusions of being a villain that takes over the world? I don't care, but the next time they interrupt how I cook and eat my meals, how to say who what cares, how to undress and especially when I see you crying because I dared to remove a bush... (it saves the environment!).. I wont give a damn. 15-Apr-2020
Council scraps relationship education programme after attacks from anti-LGBT campaigners for ‘promoting experimental transgender ideas’
Anti-LGBT+ campaigners have claimed victory after a Conservative-controlled council agreed to drop relationship education programme which taught kids that LGBT+ people exist.
Schools across the UK have seen a wave of protests against LGBT-inclusive education following demonstrations last year in Birmingham.
Warwickshire County Council is among those to have come under pressure over LGBT+ resources in its ‘All About Me’ relationship education programme.
The campaign against the curriculum appears to have been led by hardline anti-LGBT+ groups including The Christian Institute, which has lobbied against same-sex marriage, discrimination protections for LGBT+ people, transgender rights and inclusive education.

I asked 25 ‘Hot Guy’ Instagram pages why there were no men of colour. Here’s what happened…
Why are so many of these ‘Hot Guy’ Instagram feeds that are not only all white but all cisgender and all buff? What does it say about standards of beauty in the gay community?
As so often happens, a friend forwarded me a picture of your typical hot, white, cisgender, muscled, light-eyed Instagram hunk featured on a ‘Hot Guys’ page. As I scrolled down, I was reminded of #HoscosGate: a sea of beautiful, stunning white men, clearly targeted towards gay men. There were no BAME men that I could see, and I scrolled as far back as 2017. I reached out to the page, with a polite, “Hi There [name of page] great page, I have a question, I hope you don’t mind. Why do you not post pictures featuring men of colour?” I was blocked. I sent variations of that message to 25 Instagram pages, and all either replied or blocked me. There were two consistent replies: the first being that guys pay to be featured; the second that men of colour ‘do not like to be featured’. When pressed on that I was told that ‘they don’t want to be on gay pages’.
Black Americans 'epicenter' of coronavirus crisis made worse by lack of insurance
New data has revealed that the novel coronavirus kills black Americans at a disproportionately high rate. At a White House briefing Tuesday, President Donald Trump called the disparity "terrible" and a "tremendous challenge."
The insight comes as some states have released mortality data based on race and ethnicity. On average, black Americans are less likely than other groups to have health insurance, and because of other historic barriers accessing health care, may be more likely to have an underlying chronic health conditions that could put them at a higher risk for COVID-19.
"It has been disproportional. They are getting hit very, very hard," President Trump said at Tuesday’s briefing, referring specifically to the disproportionate sickness and deaths from coronavirus in black communities across the country.

The thugs who doused a trans woman with petrol and burned her alive will not face murder charges
The 42-year-old woman, named locally as Mira, was set upon by a gang of thugs for allegedly stealing a truck driver’s phone and wallet.
When the mob was unable to find any of the possessions she was accused of stealing, they beat her, poured two litres of gasoline on her, and burned her alive. She died in hospital a day later on Sunday.
As international human rights groups called for justice, Indonesian police declared they would not be bringing murder charges because they believe the suspects who set the fire had not burned the trans woman intentionally.
Six suspects have been identified, three of whom had been arrested. North Jakarta police chief Budhi Herdi Susianto acknowledged that one of them lit a match but said they did not mean to burn her.
Texas Boy, 5, Was Playing with Dad on Balcony When Stray Bullet Struck and Killed Him
A Houston family was sitting on their second-floor balcony just after 9 p.m. on March 31 when tragedy struck.

“Everybody ran in the house and the kids’ room in the house,” Jordan’s father, Jordan Allen Sr., told ABC13.com. “So I ran to the porch, and then I see my son on the ground holding his head asking for my help.”
