Priests now shooting (water) guns at babies and food
At long last, we’re happy to share some good news for anyone looking to have an old man shoot their baby in the face with a water pistol: The Catholic Church, surprising us all with its willingness to embrace change, is ready to bless food and infants alike by taking up watery arms in God’s name.
10 Outdated Disney Movies Parents Won't Show Their Kids, According to New Poll
With screen time limits completely out the window due to the coronavirus pandemic and weeks on end indoors, my husband and I have been letting our 20-month-old watch more TV and movies than we otherwise would. When we couldn't take one more Blue's Clues episode or Trolls rewatch, we broke out the next social distancing tool up our sleeves: Disney+, Disney's streaming service.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Moana, and Toy Story were all hits—we've got a major Buzz Lightyear fan on our hands—but when it came time to watch 1953's Peter Pan, we were struck by how outdated it was. I certainly didn't remember all of the racism and sexism. Between Peter Pan telling Wendy that "girls talk too much," the guns (!!), Tinker Bell trying to kill Wendy over jealousy, and the treatment of Native Americans (“What makes the red man red?"—seriously?!), I was happy when my son walked away to play with his toys and just wasn't that into it.
Principal apologizes after 'very religious' school assigns 'hardcore porn' homework to 11- to 14-year-old students
A British school principal is sorry after teachers assigned a very controversial homework assignment — including subject matter such as "transgender pornography" and the definition of "hardcore porn."
The students impacted ranged in age from 11 to 14 years, according to Hull Live.
What are the details?
Archbishop Sentamu Academy in Hull, England, assigned the homework to pupils in Personal, Social, and Health Education class requiring they define terms such as "transvestite," hardcore porn," and more.
The outlet notes that other portions of the assignment included research on subject such as "pornography, soft pornography, hardcore pornography, and transsexual pornography, as well as female genital mutilation, wet dreams, trafficking, male circumcision, breast ironing, and more."
My Son Told Friends He’s Gay. He Tells Me He Was Joking.
Dear Care and Feeding,
My 11-year-old son has been spending a lot of time playing Minecraft with online friends. They talk (I can hear everything they say, mostly silly preteen jokes) and text, and I looked at his chat screen. I read, “Please don’t say anything out loud. My mom doesn’t know I’m gay.”
I asked my kid why he wrote that. He said it was a joke. Then he said his account was hacked. Then he said his best friend is gay. I’m shocked. His dad and I have no problem if he’s gay, and he knows it. Do I give him space? I don’t want to out him (if that’s what’s up), but I hate that he can’t talk to me. My love and feelings for him are not affected at all by whether he’s gay, and I want to respect his privacy. Still, I’m hurt.
Cody Latimer’s arrest set off by argument involving 4-year-old son: lawyer

Jonathan Schmitz Killed A Man For Revealing A Crush On Him On TV — Where Is He Now?
Michigan man Jonathan Schmitz, then 24, was invited onto “The Jenny Jones Show” in 1995. "The Jenny Jones Show" began in 1991 as a traditional talk show where serious topics were discussed, but by 1993 it transformed into something more like "Maury" and "The Jerry Springer Show." The show's segments began ranging from paternity tests to out-of-control teens to secret crush reveals.
During the taping of this particular episode, which was entitled “Same Sex Secret Crushes,” Schmitz's acquaintance Scott Amedure, 32, revealed his crush on him while also describing details of his sexual fantasies about him. While Schmitz appeared to be a good sport about it ?— he was mostly smiling and laughing ?— he was deeply humiliated. At points, he covered his face with his hands; he also turned to Amedure and the female friend who brought him on the show and said, “You lied to me.” His father had made multiple homophobic statements in the past and Schmitz seemingly feared being perceived as gay, as the docuseries points out.

Anti-LGBTQ+ Boosie Hired Sex Worker to 'Prepare' Pre-Teens
Rapper Boosie Badazz is causing an uproar on social media after revealing he once hired a sex worker to give oral sex to his son and nephews when they were 12 and 13 years old.
“I’m training these boys right,” he said in an Instagram Live video yesterday. “Ask any of my nephews, ask any of them, ask my son. Yeah, when they was 12, 13, they got head. Yeah, that’s how it’s supposed to be. Hell yeah, I got my fucking son dick sucked.”
Catholic bishops are calling for the US federal government to crack down on porn, claiming it causes “pain” and “ongoing harm”.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops sent a letter US attorney general William Barr on April 30, calling on the Trump administration to “confront the ongoing harms wrought by the pornography industry”, especially as use of porn sites has spiked during the coronavirus pandemic.
In the letter, the bishops wrote: “The current pandemic is exacting a heavy and widespread emotional, social, and financial toll in our communities.
“In the face of the pandemic, the Church expresses her solidarity with all who are struggling or alone.”

District Attorney, law enforcement will make presentation on reducing violent crime and gang activity
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - District Attorney Ben David said he could not speak directly to the pending case of three teens charged with first-degree murder in a shooting that led to a fatal car crash on Oleander Drive, but he did say his office is working with law enforcement on an initiative to further combat violent crime and gang activity in the Cape Fear.
David said his office, along with the Wilmington Police Department and New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, will be making a presentation about the effort in the coming weeks.
He acknowledged there has been an increase in violent crime in the Port City in recent years, gang-related and otherwise, and said the goal of the new program will be to combine efforts of enforcement, prevention, and intervention.
In particular, he said they want to focus on creating an environment where those who are victimized will report to law enforcement, rather than attempting to get justice themselves.
“What we’re seeing now is where people are taking the law sometimes into their own hands instead of reporting that crime, so today’s victim becomes tomorrow’s defendant. And we’re seeing this, this never-ending cycle of violence,” he said.
Another issue his office has faced is the lack of cooperation among witnesses to crimes.

NEWS HEADLINES: Surveillance Videos Show Ahmaud Arbery Trespassed Into Man’s Home Before Shooting
Newly released surveillance videos show Ahmaud Arbery trespassed into a home — which the homeowner says was robbed of $2,500 worth of fishing gear earlier this year — before running away down the street after a neighbor called 911.
Arbery can be seen walking down the street — not jogging — then stopping on homeowner Larry English’s lawn and looking around. After seeing no one was in the area, he then trespassed into the house at around 2:09 p.m. on the timestamp, which is actually most likely around 1:08 p.m as police said the first neighbor to call 911 did so at 1:08 p.m. Arbery is seen exiting the building around 5 minutes later and took off running or “jogging” after 911 had been called on him (possibly by the onlooking man who is seen standing next to a tree across the street that appears to be holding a phone up to his left ear and likely would have been in Arbery’s view).

Cavasos then secretly moved into the girl’s room on Feb. 10, hiding from her grandfather by staying in a cavity beneath the girl’s bed after removing slats that held her mattress, Assistant US Attorney Jennifer Martin said.
