Lyft driver pulls out a gun & tells passenger ‘I want to kill’ gay people
A gay man in Florida said that he feared for his life when a Lyft driver pulled a gun on him.
“What happened if it was another person? Or what would happen if right now I would be dead?” Andres Berreondo said after what he said was a violent attack by a Lyft driver.
Berreondo said that he called a Lyft yesterday afternoon to visit a family friend. He put two large packages in the back and rode in the front passenger seat.
Cruising for Inclusion
Jay couldn’t wait to attend the Naked Unicorn Party, the BYOB play party capping off Butchfest, a 2013 Dallas festival celebrating “lesbians and queers who identify as tomboys, butches, studs, bois, transmen genderqueers, two-spirits, and all other identities masculine of center.” He had attended a few other queer sex events before, but as a 42-year-old trans man with a limp, his trans identity and physical disability made it difficult for him to sexually engage others.
Others often assume Jay’s disability puts him in chronic pain, but it doesn’t. And as someone who identifies as “70 percent femme/female-attracted and 30 percent butch/masculine-attracted,” he doesn’t feel welcome in queer sex spaces. At one sex party, the host pointed to him as proof of the event’s inclusivity. As a result, he often feels physically and sexually awkward at these events and usually ends up watching as a voyeur.
CALIFORNIA DIOCESE RELEASES NAMES OF 34 CATHOLIC PRIESTS ACCUSED OF CHILD SEX ABUSE
California’s Diocese of San Bernardino this week released 34 names of the Catholic priests it says have had credible allegations of child sexual abuse made against them since 1978. On Twitter, the church said it was “an action of transparency intended to promote healing.”
Some of the alleged incidents described next to the priests’ names date back to the 1960s. Many of the men have been permanently banned from ministry in the diocese or are deceased. Some priests were arrested or suspended, while others were reported to the religious order.
Insufferable gay Trump supporter hurls racial slurs at Lyft driver, refuses to leave vehicle
Shawn Pepas Lettman is a Lyft driver and father of two from Brooklyn. Last weekend, he found himself the target of a racist attack by gay Trump supporter who refused to get out of his car.
It all started when a passenger leaving a gay club requested Lettman change the music in his car. Lettman declined the request and the passenger became irate, prompting Lettman to pull over.
In the video, the passenger can be seen screaming into his phone at Lyft customer service, hurling racial slurs at Lettman, making offensive threats, and refusing to get out of the car until he is refunded his $8.01 for the ride and police arrive so he can file a report.

L.A. County deputies stopped thousands of innocent Latinos on the 5 Freeway in hopes of their next drug bust
The team of Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies cruises the 5 Freeway, stopping motorists on the Grapevine in search of cars carrying drugs.
They’ve worked the mountain pass in Southern California since 2012 and boast a large haul: more than a ton of methamphetamine, 2 tons of marijuana, 600 pounds of cocaine, millions of dollars in suspected drug money and more than 1,000 arrests.
But behind those impressive numbers are some troubling ones.
More than two-thirds of the drivers pulled over by the Domestic Highway Enforcement Team were Latino, according to a Times analysis of Sheriff’s Department data. And sheriff’s deputies searched the vehicles of more than 3,500 drivers who turned out to have no drugs or other illegal items, the analysis found. The overwhelming majority of those were Latino.

Gay teacher in Zimbabwe resigns after death threats
A gay deputy headmaster of a boys' school in Zimbabwe has resigned after death threats and pressure from parents.
Neal Hovelmeier, who worked at St John's College in the capital, Harare, faced huge criticism and threats from parents after he revealed his sexual orientation to his students at an assembly September 21.
Hovelmeier came out after a local newspaper threatened to write an article exposing his sexuality. He told CNN the paper "felt that did not sit well with my position in a boys' school in a conservative country."
The Catholic Church Is Rich Enough to Settle Sex Abuse Cases Forever
It sometimes seems as if you could rattle off a list of Catholic sex abuse scandals in perpetuity. The pope, for his part, has barely responded outside of summoning the world's bishops to the Vatican for a meeting this winter to discuss the ongoing crisis.
Considering the unlikelihood of criminal consequences for those at the clergy's top levels, and the fact that many of these sex abuse cases have far surpassed the statutes of limitations, the endgame seems increasingly a financial—that is, a civil liability—question. But can the Church settle with survivors forever? Will it ever, somehow, completely run out of money with which to do so? In settling sex abuse claims, the Church has already reportedly spent or agreed to spend at least $3 billion in the US alone, and about 20 American dioceses have filed for some kind of bankruptcy. There's little evidence that will slow down, or that the price tag won't keep climbing. (In Pennsylvania, for example, bishops said they supported a fund to compensate survivors if they could prove they were abused but, because of the statute of limitations in the state, could no longer file a lawsuit.)

Anti-LGBTI Christian author claims all oral sex is 'homosexual'
A Christian author of anti-LGBTI books has claimed that oral sex is the ‘practice of homosexuals’.
Linda Harvey, writer behind books like Maybe He’s Not Gay, has launched a frankly bizarre rant against sex education.
During an article for right-wing website BarbWire denouncing teaching teenagers about ‘pleasure’ during sex ed, the writer goes into an odd tangent about oral sex.
Harvey writes: ‘And let’s not forget the deadly contribution of “LGBTQ” advocates who demand “inclusive” sex ed – ie, lessons that outline in detail how kids can engage in anal and oral sex, the sex practices of homosexuals.’
For people with opposite sex partners: no, this isn’t an excuse to skip foreplay.

Catholic Church bombshell: Lay board that probed sex abuse seeks to be reappointed
A lay board appointed 15 years ago by the U.S. Conference of Bishops to investigate the priest sex abuse scandal is seeking to be reappointed and given the power to probe high-ranking members of the Catholic Church in the United States, according to a bombshell letter obtained by Sneed.
The nine-member panel — which included Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke; President Barack Obama’s former CIA chief and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta; powerful Washington, D.C., attorney Robert Bennett; and New Mexico Supreme Court Justice Petra Jimenez Maes — worked together last week by phone to hammer out its request, a copy of which is included below.
Burke, on behalf of the group, sent the letter to U.S. Conference of Bishops president Cardinal Daniel DiNardo on Friday.
The letter cites recent claims by a retired top Vatican official that Pope Francis himself knew about sexual misconduct allegations against the former archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, but that Francis restored him to public ministry anyway. McCarrick resigned in July after an abuse allegation lodged against him was deemed “credible.”
