KANSAS OFFICIAL TELLS BLACK WOMAN HE'S MEMBER OF THE 'MASTER RACE:' 'DON'T EVER FORGET THAT'
A Kansas County commissioner is facing calls to apologize after telling a black woman that he is part of the “master race” during a routine public planning meeting.
The remark was made on Tuesday by Leavenworth County commissioner Louis Klemp, a white man, and seemingly directed at a woman presenting for an architecture firm. It has been branded as racist—and local media reported it was not the first time Klemp has sparked controversy.
“I don't want you to feel like I'm picking on you. Because we are part of the master race,” he said in the meeting. “You have a gap in your teeth you're the master race, don’t ever forget that.”
Bob Holland, another Leavenworth County commissioner, told KCTV5 that Klemp—who is reportedly due to leave his position on January 15 next year—should make an apology.
“What’s this master race?" Holland said on Wednesday. “None of us are a master race. We are all Americans, we are all human beings. I think he is a racist. I do. I think he owes an apology to that woman. I think he owes an apology to the whole commission. And the county.”

City Girls Rapper Yung Miami Explains Saying She Would 'Beat' Her Son If He Was Gay: Watch
Rapper Yung Miami, of the rap group City Girls, has made a name for herself as a controversial figure in the hip-hop world. The 24-year-old rapper made comments in 2011 about how she thought Haitians were “black ugly and cheesy” and said in 2013 that she wouldn’t want one of her sons to be gay -- both of which she later publicly apologized for.
But Miami found herself in more hot water on Tuesday (Nov. 13) after her appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, where she doubled down on her homophobic statements. Speaking with host Charlamagne Tha God, Miami was asked about her controversial tweet that said what she would do if she had a gay son. “I didn’t tweet nothing about them [the LGBTQ community],” she said. “I was just talking about my son. I just said that if I saw anything gay in my son, that I would beat him.”

The Empty Hope of the Suburban White Woman Voter
Relying on white suburban women using the midterms as a referendum on Republican excess is a loser’s bet. This seems obvious to anyone who paid attention to the 2016 election (or the last six decades of electoral history), but it’s also what comes across in this Politico piece delving into a contentious house race in North Carolina where a young, moderate Democrat by the name of Dan McCready is up against a bible-thumping Trumpite, Republican Mark Harris.
Reporter Michael Kruse went to the state’s ninth district—which stretches east to west from Charlotte to Fayetteville—in search of the much discussed and supposedly politically consequential suburban white woman, a voting bloc that pundits, talking heads, and strategists have argued can make or break the outcome of certain elections this time around.

THE U.S. CATHOLIC CHURCH IS FACING AN UNPRECEDENTED WAVE OF SEX ABUSE INVESTIGATIONS
In the months since a Pennsylvania grand jury announced the names of more than 300 priests who’d abused at least 1,000 children, authorities across the United States have launched investigations of unprecedented scale into sex abuse within the U.S. Catholic Church.
On Wednesday, Virginia became at least the 15th state where officials have announced a plan to investigate sex abuse allegations within the Church. At the federal level, the Justice Department has subpoenaed records from at least seven of Pennsylvania’s eight Catholic dioceses, the Associated Press reported last week, in a probe believed to be the first of its kind, according to the Survivors Network of those Abuse by Priests (SNAP).

Amazon says it is investigating anti-gay church that takes part in its customer donor program
Amazon, the world’s biggest online retailer, boasts about its program, Amazon Smile, that allows shoppers to donate 0.5% of their purchases to the charity of their choice. That’s great, except that right now among their list of charities is a Glasgow church belonging to Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, an anti-gay outfit that promotes “ex-gay” therapy.
You might’ve heard of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries. Last year, they made the news because of their Liverpool church’s three-day program to “cure” people of homosexuality. The program involves “relentless” prayer sessions lasting three hours each and absolute fasting with no water or food for 72 hours, a torturous and dangerous regimen.
The heads of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries claims it doesn’t condone ex-gay therapy, a practice condemned by almost every major psychological association in existence as ineffective and harmful. Even still, the church has publicly said that it believes homosexuality is “biologically wrong,” a “deceit of Satan,” a form of “sexual bondage” and that people only claim to be gay to get “gay ‘celebrity’ status.”
Religion and Sexual Shame
The World Health Organization once estimated that more than 100 million couples around the globe make love during a typical day. Sex is a powerful human force. It’s natural, healthy, normal and wonderful. However, Western religion has spent millennia tainting it with shame, guilt and punishment. Holy men equate sex with “sin.”
The Bible contains 96 verses denouncing “harlots,” “whores,” “whoredom” and the like – branding many females as vile temptresses. It decrees that brides who aren’t virgins shall be taken to their fathers’ doorsteps and stoned to death (Deut. 22:21). It mandates that adulterers, both male and female, must be killed (Lev. 20:10). For gay males, it commands: “They shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Lev. 20:13).
Today, a few evangelists such as Colorado preacher Kevin Swanson still declare publicly that gays should be killed.
Early church leaders ranted against lovemaking.
