Arthur J. Perrault, 80, a former Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe and a former Air Force chaplain, has been charged in a federal indictment with seven counts of aggravated sexual abuse and abusive sexual contact between 1991 and 1992 at Kirtland Air Force Base and Santa Fe National Cemetery.
Andrew Horn couldn't remember the last time he released his anger.
The 32-year-old founder of Tribute.co, a video montage platform recently dubbed by the New Yorker as "Hallmark 2.0," recalled throwing things and slamming doors – but never actually expressing his anger. So, one of the attendees in his men's-only meeting group handed him a pillow while the others encouraged him to scream into it. He let out a guttural release of primal rage.
"I felt a lot better," he explained.
Horn says the key to unlocking his emotions has been discovering "modern masculinity," a movement of men exploring their emotions in small group settings.

When he saw a woman fearing for her life while being chased and slashed by a machete-wielding man -- he didn’t flinch.
Blaine Hodge, 27, a private security guard and musician, endured several machete gashes when he leaped into action to shield the woman while she was being stabbed by the woman’s alleged ex-boyfriend.
The machete-wielding suspect was identified as 31-year-old Robert Rivas, 31, who reportedly stalked his victim into the Starbucks located at the Stockdale Fashion Center in Bakersfield, California at around Noon on Sunday and tried to assault his ex-girlfriend by ambushing her.
Hodge threw himself between the man and the woman and managed to spare her of what may have been certain death.
U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in the Senate this week was frequently disrupted as protesters were removed from the hearing room by police, with more than 200 people arrested.
Protesters are removed during the fourth day of Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., September 7, 2018.
In an unusually intense episode of civil disobedience on Capitol Hill, the four-day Senate Judiciary Committee hearing was targeted for “creative resistance” by liberal activist groups, said Linda Sarsour, Women's March board member.
“This is a travesty of justice! Adjourn the hearing!” Sarsour, 38, yelled on Tuesday morning as she was the first to be taken out of the hearing room by police officers.
Gay sex is legal in India. That was the judgement of the the Supreme Court in New Delhi Thursday, which struck down a colonial-era law that banned homosexual acts with the threat of prison. The ruling sparked jubilant scenes across the country, the culmination of a decades-long struggle for India’s LGBTQ movement.
The landmark ruling from the five judge bench overturned the 157-year-old law known as Section 377, which banned sex “against the order of nature.”
The former president unloaded on President Trump — by name — and Republicans in Congress during a blistering speech at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on Friday, urging students in the audience to vote in an election he called a turning point.
“It did not start with Donald Trump,” Obama said. “He is a symptom, not the cause.” But he went on to criticize Trump and Republicans in Congress at length, calling out coziness with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, Trump’s tweets about the Justice Department investigating Republicans, the president’s reluctance to criticize Nazi sympathizers after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and more.
“Republicans who know better in Congress — and they’re there, they’re quoted saying, Yeah, we know this is kind of crazy — are still bending over backward to shield this behavior from scrutiny or accountability,” he said.
A Virginia man took "you kids get off of my lawn" to new levels by putting up an electric fence near a spot where students wait for the school bus.
Bryan Tucker said he erected the fence Tuesday because he had trouble last year with kids trespassing and littering on his property. "They don't respect other peoples' land," Tucker told CNN affiliate WTVR. "I pick up trash every day." He said the "No Trespassing" signs he has posted on his property for years haven't helped.
On August 26, people in cities across the country will take to the street to protest Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, where the the judge’s anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ stances could endanger over half the U.S. population for decades.
In response to Trump’s conservative pick, whose confirmation hearings are scheduled to begin on September 4, NARAL, MoveOn.org, and number of other progressive grassroots groups have organized Unite for Justice, a nationwide day of action that will see at least one demonstration in all 50 states. Here’s what you need to know to join.
An art teacher who has been in a year-long battle with her Texas school district over what she says is homophobic discrimination is back in the classroom — but not the same classroom she was forced to leave last fall.
Stacy Bailey was twice selected Teacher of the Year at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School in Texas’ Mansfield Independent School District, where she started in 2008. But shortly after she showed her students a photo of her and her “future wife” last August during a “Get to Know Your Teacher” presentation, she was placed on administrative leave.
The 2018 midterm election is less than 100 days away, and the issues at stake are more pressing than they have been in years: LGBTQ rights, a Supreme Court seat, ICE raids and detention, Russian attacks on our democratic process, women’s reproductive rights, tax cuts for the rich, and slashing funds for the poor, sick, and elderly. But with it being a midterm election the turnout is expected to as abysmal as ever. In 2014, only 36.4 percent of eligible voters turned out to vote; about average for a midterm. Even during presidential elections only slightly more than half of voters turn out — in 2016, only 55.5 percent of those eligible went to the polls.
We have tried for years to get people to vote. We have tried to talk rationally to you, tried to frighten you, we tried to bribe you with stickers and bragging rights on Instagram, but these efforts continue to fail. Our agents have tried to get you to register, but you have refused to make the minimal effort. That pudgy kid in the T-shirt holding the clipboard at Pride was not patiently waiting for you to finish puking up those fireball shots to hit on you; he was trying to get you registered. Those little old ladies who knocked on your door were not trying to tell you about Jesus; they were a septuagenarian lesbian couple trying to get you to vote to help defend their newly legal marriage, but you decided to scream at them through the door. We have tried to get you to care about others even when you would not be affected by the election because of your gender, income, race, or place of residence privileges, but you still will not vote. Therefore, we are forced to take action and impose consequences that will genuinely affect you.
