A Bishop Wants to Solve Gang Violence by Spraying Holy Water from a Helicopter
The weather report in Buenaventura, Colombia, calls for thunderstorms this Sunday. That is a bit unfortunate, since it may prove tricky to differentiate between precipitation and holy water falling from the sky.
That afternoon, on the Lord's day of rest, Monsignor Rubén Dario Jaramillo Montoya, a Catholic bishop in the city, plans to hop in a helicopter and soak what he has described as crime-ridden streets with the blessed liquid. The ritual was set to be part of a religious feast celebrating Buenaventura's patron saint. But Montoya's real hope, he told a local radio station, was to "exorcise all those demons that are destroying our port."

This Mom Asked Guests to Pay a Cover Fee at Her Daughter's Birthday Party – Sorry, but Nope
I've thrown a handful of birthday parties for my kids so far, and I will be the first to tell you — they're damn pricey. For two to four hours of pizza, cake, and ice cream, you'd think they wouldn't break the bank, but I always end up spending more than I budgeted for and wondering if they're even worth the expense.
One thing I've never wondered, however, is how much to charge guests to attend. That's because the answer, without room for argument, is zero dollars and zero cents.
So it came as a complete shock when the Boston Globe's "Miss Conduct" advice column was hit with an impossible scenario: a mom has been making guests pay a cover charge to attend her kid's birthday parties.
"Every year, she charges people to come to her daughter's birthday party," an anonymous friend of the mom wrote. "If it is at a venue, the e-mail will say something along the lines of 'please bring $20 to cover the cost of your child.' If it is at her home, there will be an envelope or basket asking for 'donations.' They're not poor."
Academic claims she's discovered anal suppository 'cure' for homosexuality
A Kuwaiti academic claims she discovered an anal suppository ‘cure’ for homosexuality.
Mariam Al-Sohel appeared on Scope TV to explain how her gay cure medicine based on Islamic prophecy works.
‘I discovered therapeutic suppositories that curb the sexual urges of boys of the third gender,’ she said. ‘As well as the fourth gender, which is butch lesbians.’
The ‘third gender’ is feminine gay men, according to Al-Sohel.
She then continued: ‘This is all science, so there’s nothing to be ashamed of.
‘The sexual urge develops when a person is sexually attacked. And afterwards it persists because there is an anal worm that feeds on semen. It feeds on sperm.
‘So what I did was to produce suppositories, which are to be used by certain people at a certain time. It cures those urges by exterminating the worm that feeds on sperm,’ she said.

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.

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.

Teen Who Said She Was Stopped By Black Man Pretending To Be Cop Charged With Filing False Police Report
A 17-year-old in Southgate, Michigan is facing charges of filing a false police report after she apparently lied about being pulled over by a fake police officer, who she coincidentally described as a tall, Black man.
According to the News-Herald, 17-year-old Faith Gentry stood silent during an arraignment, refusing to plead either guilty or not guilty. As a matter of routine, the judge usually takes this sort of silence as a not guilty plea. Her bond was set at $25,000 and she’s scheduled for a pretrial hearing for March 8.
Last week, Gentry appeared on Fox2Detroit to tell her story after she says she was pulled over.
“I was coming down southbound down Fort and this ‘cop’ put his lights on and I pulled over,” she claimed.

Police sergeant resigns amid gay bashing and underage gay sex allegations
A gay police sergeant from Chicago has resigned in disgrace after finding himself at the center of a criminal investigation.
45-year-old Eric Elkins, who has been with the department nearly 20 years, officially stepped down from his post last week, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department says.
Elkins made headlines last September when he and a gang of three other men allegedly beat Thomas Stacha and his boyfriend John Sherwood outside of the popular Chicago gay bar @mosphere.
According to The Chicago Tribune, a fight between the men started inside the club and continued outside. The beating left Stacha with broken cheekbones and a perforated trachea and Sherwood with a compound leg fracture.
Elkins was placed on paid leave after the incident. That is, until now. A spokesperson for the department says that since he has “resigned under investigation,” he will be ineligible for retired police credentials.
Woman kicked off flight for rant about sitting between ‘two big pigs’
An unhinged woman was kicked off a recent United Airlines flight after going on a fat-shaming tirade about her two seatmates – calling the passengers on either side of her “two big pigs.”
“Oh my goodness! I don’t know how I’m going to do this for the next four hours!” the woman barks into her cellphone on the Las Vegas-to-Newark flight.
“This is just impossible ’cause they’re squishing me. Like, just unbelievable. At least they’ll keep me warm,” she fumes. “I can’t sit here because they’re both so big on left and right. I can’t even sit here.”
Norma Rodgers, an award-winning nurse from New Jersey sitting next to the obnoxious woman, captures her on video as she continues her rant.
“Bitch, please! OK?” Rodgers finally says.
Shocking video of two churches pushing ex-gay therapy may help end the practice
While more US states prepare to ban so-called ex-gay conversion therapy, the harmful practice of trying to change someone’s sexual orientation remains legal through the UK. And a recent TV report has captured disturbing footage of two UK churches claiming that God can “fix” gay people.
An ITV investigative report revealed that Journey UK and World Mission Agency – Winners Chapel International (WMA-WCI) both advocate the idea that one can pray the gay away.
A man from Journey UK spoke to an undercover ITV reporter about how certain activities can help lessen one’s feelings of same-sex attraction. A pastor from WMA-WCI told the reporter that gay people are under Satan’s control and compared positive media depictions of gay people to Nazi propaganda.
The WMA-WCI pastor also said a 20-minute prayer over the reporter, even speaking in tongues, presumably attempting to “heal” him.
