Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King says statues of Jesus Christ should be torn down — but just the white ones
Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King said that it is permissible to tear down the statues of Jesus Christ that show him with European features because they support white supremacy.
"Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been," King tweeted on Monday.
"In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down," he added.
"Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down," he explained in a second tweet.

Anti-gay GOP ex-congressman Aaron Schock photographed making out with another man at Coachella
The GOP ex-congressman whose sexuality was DC’s worst-kept secret has been spotted making out with another man at Coachella. Former Representative Aaron Schock who made a splash in the nation’s capital with his clothing choices, Instagram photos, and interior decorating choices, resigned after being accused of illegally using campaign funds to finance his over-the-top lifestyle.
Schock was a reliably anti-gay vote for Republicans, despite the parade of young men who visited his DC apartment, and his outing by journalist Itay Hod in 2014. Hod claimed he had walked in on his male roommate and Schock showering together.
But the former Congressman is back on social media after moving to West Hollywood where’s he’s been spotted doing some of the most stereotypical gay things possible – hanging out in gay bars, posing shirtless with gay fitness junkies, and enjoying quiet dinners with other men.

Now she and Greisman appearing in a video together extolling the virtues of the Equality Act and just why the country needs it.

The legislation, introduced in Congress earlier this month, would amend federal law to provide a wide range of protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It would ban discrimination not only in employment but in housing, credit, public accommodations, education, federal financial assistance, and federal jury service.

Missouri GOP wants to eliminate marriages for everyone unless they’re done in a church
As part of the Republican party’s ongoing effort to undo a century of progress for, well, just about everyone, the Missouri state GOP legislature has introduced a new bill seeking to totally redefine marriage.
Missouri still has an unconstitutional law on the books defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. This new bill HB 1434, according to sponsors, would completely nullify marriage in the public arena for everyone.
The term “marriage” would apply only to religious institutions, while all state-recognized unions – hereto referred to as marriage – would undergo reclassification as “domestic unions.” Sponsors have created the bill, they say, as a means of protecting churches and businesses against gay encroachment, like asking bakers to design cakes for gay weddings.
Professor's resignation after death threats highlights uncomfortable truth
Until recently, George Ciccariello-Maher was an anonymous political science professor at Drexel University in Philadelphia. However, of late a white-hot mob has threatened him -- and his child -- so gravely that he is now teaching via a video feed. This week he announced he's resigning out of concern for his family's safety: "My situation has become unsustainable," he explained on his Facebook account.
Surely Ciccariello-Maher said something racist or, to use the dominant term of art, white supremacist? No -- the people issuing a fountain of death threats against him all year have been from the right.
A year ago, Ciccariello-Maher tweeted a wry joke -- "All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide" -- in the vein of the self-critical "That's so white" meme now popular among Blue Americans. He said the tweet was a "satirical jab at a certain paranoid racist fantasy and that white genocide does not exist."
This politician blamed gay suicide on weak anal muscles
A Swiss politician has blamed incontinence due to weakened anal muscles as the reason for an increase in suicide among gay people.
Zurich City Council member Daniel Regli made the statement during a budget debate on funding for sex education.
Regli criticized a sex ed website, Lust and Frust (Pleasure and Pain). He claimed the site, supported by the city’s education department, promotes homosexuality and promiscuity but doesn’t say anything about “homosexuals with multiple partners take their lives between the ages of 30 and 40…because their anal muscle is not holding up as it should.”

Let's Celebrate This Hot Pink, 4-Story Dick!
New Yorkers love to complain about how the city has changed irreparably for the worse—it’s too expensive; it’s been subsumed by chains; the artists and weirdos have all fled for cheaper vistas. But on one Lower East Side building has appeared an enormous, throbbing beacon of hope: A bright pink, four-story dick, replete with a cluster of rippling veins the size of drainage pipes and a head like a three-person tent.

This Anti-Gay Interpretive Flag Dance May Be The Gayest Thing We’ve Ever Seen
Vehemently anti-gay conservative organization MassResistance opened a conference last week with an interpretive flag dance that has us all wondering ... Are we being trolled?
The colorful display of exuberance kicked off MassResistance’s Teens4Truth conference, which took place on Friday and Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas.
It seems impossible to take your eyes away from this video, as a man passionately tells a story of redemption and rage with two twirling tie-dye flags. It very well may be the gayest display of performance art that we’ve ever seen emerge from a gathering of anti-gay bigots.
Republican lawmakers abolish gender so they don’t have to call trans politician Danica Roem a woman
Democratic delegate-elect Danica Roem made history earlier this month as the first openly transgender lawmaker to be elected to a state legislature, after unseating GOP incumbent Bob Marshall, who penned anti-transgender ‘bathroom’ legislation.
Roem is set to take up her seat in the Virginia House of Delegates in January.
But ahead of the new session, the Republican-controlled body has opted to make drastic changes to the chamber’s 400-year-old rulebook.
Under the changes, politicians speaking on the floor of the House will no longer have to refer to eachother as ‘Gentleman’ or ‘Gentlewoman’, and will instead use the term ‘Delegate’ as a gender-neutral address.
While the removal of unnecessarily-gendered language might be cheered by liberals in other occasions, the GOP’s actions appear to be preventing lawmakers from having to refer to Ms Roem as a ‘Gentlewoman’.
Donald Trump is defending homophobic child molester Roy Moore
Donald Trump has told people to vote for extreme homophobic Senate candidate Roy Moore – who faces allegations of child molestation.
Moore is the Republican candidate ahead of a special election for the US Senate seat in Alabama vacated by Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions, facing off against Democrat Doug Jones.
Moore, a former judge, was ejected from the Alabama Supreme Court for abusing his authority in a bid to block gay weddings. He has compared gay sex to bestiality and paedophilia, and has ties to ‘death to gays’ preachers.
His campaign has been hit by controversy this month after a number of women came forward to accuse Moore of sexual assault, including a number who were under the age of consent when he made alleged sexual advances.

Anti-gay evangelical Tony Perkins ‘covered up sexual assault claims’ against politician
An anti-LGBT activist that claims to speak for ‘traditional values’ has been implicated in an alleged cover-up of sexual assault allegations against a GOP official.
Wesley Goodman, a married Republican lawmaker in Ohio with a long history of campaigning against LGBT rights, resigned last week after being caught having gay sex in his office.
But the official’s tryst was not the only charge against him.
Allegations have been made that while a candidate for office, Goodman sexually assaulted an 18-year-old boy at a fundraiser event, unzipping his trousers and fondling him him.
The boy’s stepfather reported the incident to Tony Perkins, the evangelical activist who organised the conference.
