This is why America's travel business is worried

 

Foreign travelers to the United States bring billions of dollars into the economy each year. But that flow of people and money now appears to be at risk.

Last year set a record for tourism: 78.6 million foreign travelers came to the United States in 2018. But following that banner year, tourism is now in a slump. Travel in early 2019 is in decline, particularly from Canada, Mexico, China and South Korea. That slowdown started taking place in the second half of last year.

The travel industry is worried about how severe, and long lasting, that decline could be.

Tourism is a serious economic driver for the American economy. The United States enjoyed a $69 billion surplus on international travel last year, reducing the country's overall trade deficit by 11%, according to Tori Barnes, executive vice president of the US Travel Association, the industry trade group. On average,foreign travelers spend $4,000 each on visits to the United States. Chinese tourists spend about $7,000.

"It's a really significant economic impact," said Barnes.
Companies that rely on foreign tourism are starting to feel the decline in travel: For example, Tiffany's reported disappointing sales this week, in part because of a drop in purchases by foreign tourists at its US stores.

Psychologist who played a key role in opposing LGBT lessons in schools is to be investigated over links to material calling for gay people to be 'lashed and killed' 

 

A psychologist, who has continuously opposed LGBT lessons in schools, is to be investigated over her opposition to homosexuality.

Dr Kate Godfrey-Faussett, who is a lead figure in the Stop RSE campaign and converted to Islam 25 years ago, is now under investigation by the Health and Care Professions Council over her views, The Guardian has reported.

An investigation carried by the Observer earlier this year found that the National Secular Society (NSS) had written to the Health and Care Professions Council, the governing body for Godfrey-Faussett's profession, over whether her role is compatible with the ethical standards of her professional body.

In a letter seen by the paper, dated on February 18, the NSS warned that the campaign group had 'promoted material which says the punishment for homosexuality is death.'

Tech Start-Up Wants to Help Travelers Avoid Homophobic Hotels 

 

The world’s largest short-term rental marketplace dedicated to the gay community has launched a campaign designed help LGBTQ travelers avoid homophobic hotels.

Misterb&b recently announced a Wefunder campaign that gives the public the opportunity to invest in the company in order to help launch its expansion beyond short term rentals and into hotels.

“Misterb&b wants to build equality into the sharing economy and give back to a community that’s been historically economically marginalized, by providing the misterb&b community with the power of part ownership of the company,” the company said in a statement.

Already a half-million dollars have been raised through the campaign, which the company says will be used to provide gay and gay-friendly hotel rooms on the platform.

Justices reject B&B owner who denied room to gay couple 

 

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left in place Hawaii court rulings that found a bed and breakfast owner violated the state's anti-discrimination law by refusing to rent a room to a lesbian couple.

The justices rejected an appeal from Aloha Bed & Breakfast owner Phyllis Young, who argued that she should be allowed to turn away gay couples because of her religious beliefs.

"Mrs. Young will rent a bedroom in her home to anyone, including those who are LGBT, but will not rent to any romantic partners other than a husband and wife," her attorney, James Hochberg, said in a statement. "This kind of governmental coercion should disturb every freedom-loving American no matter where you stand on marriage."

The Next Time You Crave Chicken, Remember That Chick-fil-A Is Still Very Much Anti-Gay 

 

In September 2012, after years of publicly opposing same-sex marriage and donating millions to anti-LGBTQ groups, Chick-fil-A — the Christian-founded fast-food chain known for their chicken sandwiches and billboards of half-literate cows encouraging folks to “EAT MOR CHIKIN” — said that it had “ceased donating to organizations that promote discrimination, specifically against LGBT civil rights.”

According to ThinkProgress, the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s most recent IRS filings from 2015 reveal hundreds of thousands in donations to anti-LGBTQ groups. They gave $1 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a religious organization with “a strict ‘sexual purity’ policy, prohibiting any ‘homosexual acts.'”

They also donated $200,000 to the Paul Anderson Youth Home, a Georgia-based group that runs a “Christian residential home for troubled youth.” The organization believes that the “sexual, physical and mental abuse of children” resulted in “the explosion of homosexuality in the last century.”

Tennessee store puts “no gays allowed” sign back up after Supreme Court’s wedding cake ruling 

 

A Tennessee hardware store owner is celebrating the Supreme Court's ruling in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple by posting a "no gays allowed" sign in front of his business.

Jeff Amyx, who owns Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, Tennessee, initially put up the sign in 2015 after the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage but later removed it following public backlash.

But the "no gays allowed" sign returned this week after the recent Supreme Court's decision, WBIR reports.

People are threatening to boycott Starbucks over its holiday cup's 'gay agenda' — but the controversy was invented by the media (SBUX) 

 

People are freaking out over a Starbucks boycott that has essentially been invented by the media.

Last week, BuzzFeed News published an article with the headline "Is Starbucks' New Holiday Cup Totally Gay?"

The article was based on an ad campaign that came out in late October and featured what appears to be one lesbian couple — among other couples — and fewer than 10 tweets, most of them extremely tongue-in-cheek. Last week, Business Insider could only find a single tweet —with zero likes and retweets — that expressed negative sentiments about what BuzzFeed News called the holiday cup's "gay agenda."

French firm under fire for spyware it claims can tell parents if their sons are GAY by searching for 'clues' in their computer and Facebook usage 
 

A French company has come under fire after advertising that its spyware can 'find out if your son is gay.'

Fireworld - which creates 'invisible PC spy software' - posted an article suggesting parents could use its technology to hack their son's Facebook accounts to look for 'clues' to confirm suspicions about their children's sexuality.

The article has since been taken down, but not before it was spotted by a French LGBTQ rights group which is now speaking out against the firm, along with internet commenters and even politicians.

Gays can be ‘cured,’ no gay marriage, no abortion: Hollywood hotel honcho outrages protesters 

 

Several dozen opponents of a hotel project approved by the Los Angeles City Council Wednesday protested in the City Hall rotunda after the vote, angered by what they said was the developer’s support of an anti-LGBT group and shortcuts taken in getting the project approved.

The City Council approved the 21-story hotel with a 12-0 vote, clearing the way for it to be built near the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Ivar Avenue in Hollywood where a Jack in the Box restaurant now sits.

Opponents of the project have been led by Unite Here Local 11, a union representing 23,000 hotel, airport and food service workers.

The developer of the project, RD Olson, and its president, Bill Wilhelm, have been criticized by Unite Here Local 11 due to Wilhelm’s former membership in Legatus, a Catholic business leader networking group.

Legatus is opposed to same-sex marriage and abortion and in favor of “conversion therapy” aimed at “curing” people of homosexual desires.

'No gays and no pets': Gay couple refused entry at guest house in Italy 

 

A gay couple from Naples, Italy, has been denied entry at a guest house in the southern region of Calabria because of their sexual orientation. The couple had booked a bed and breakfast in Santa Maria, a coastal village in the Vibo Valentia province.

However, when they contacted the owner for further information on the facility, they were told that the guest house accepted neither pets nor homosexuals.

Could This Ancient Porn Change The Way We Think About Christianity And Homosexuality? 

 

There are six passages in the Bible that refer to same-sex behavior in some way. These verses are often referred by progressive Christians as “clobber passages” because they are repeatedly used to reject, demean, and attack queer Christians.

Three of these passages are located in the New Testament, in the books of Romans, 1 Corinthians, and 1 Timothy. Another passage that conservative Christians sometimes refer to is Matthew 19, where Jesus speaks about divorce. It’s these verses that Chalke turns to in his defense of queer Christianity.

The minister claims it was normal and even expected for Roman men to have sexual playthings apart from their wives. This meant having sex with concubines and young boys. Some Roman women also used people of lower status for their own sexual pleasure, Chalke said. But one thing Romans couldn’t do was abuse another Roman citizen.

“Roman boys were protected in a way that slave boys weren’t. For a Roman man, sex was a legitimate part of life, but you had to have sex with an inferior and you had to penetrate them, you weren’t allowed to be penetrated,” Chalke said in his talk.

Carolyn Hax: Christian best friend asks lesbian couple to ‘chill with the PDA’
I’m angry and shocked — I’ve been so careful around her. I have to hide around family. Do I have to hide around her too? 
 

DEAR CAROLYN: I have known “Sarah” for half my life. We are now in our late 20s. I came out to her as a lesbian two years ago and am currently dating someone.

Sarah is a conservative Christian, so I have made sure to be careful around her regarding our public displays of affection. I basically told my girlfriend we should act the same around Sarah as we would around family. The occasional kiss on the cheek or hand-holding, nothing more.

Recently, my girlfriend and I asked Sarah out to dinner. She initially replied maybe, then about an hour later told us she would come if we “chilled with the PDA,” and added, “I would ask the same if your girlfriend was a man.”

I am angry. I have been very careful around her, and was shocked at her request. I don’t really know what to do. My family is unsupportive so I hide a significant amount of my life already — they know but refuse to talk about it — and I don’t want to have to hide around my best friend. Any advice on how to proceed?
