Catholic priest busted sexting an underage boy & offering to be his “sugar daddy”
The FBI has arrested Catholic priest Francis Hughes yesterday for allegedly sexting an underage boy.
“How would you like to be spoiled by your grandpa?” the 65-year-old pastor at the St. Pancras Roman Catholic Church in Queens, New York is accused of asking a 15-year-old boy in a text message.
He talked about masturbation with the teen and told him, “Its one of the great things about being a boy. You get to relieve your horniness whenever you want.”
“How would you like to be spoiled by your grandpa?” Hughes asked. The two discussed Hughes sending money to the victim and the pastor even asked how the victim would hide it from his parents.

Statue of Black Lives Matter protester Jen Reid removed in UK
A statue of a Black Lives Matter protester in the UK was removed Thursday — just one day after it replaced a monument of 17th-century slave trader Edward Colston.
Video shows hardhats in Bristol carefully removing the statue of demonstrator Jen Reid with her fist in the air at around 5:20 a.m., the Guardian reported.
The black resin and steel piece — titled “A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020” — was erected early Wednesday by London sculptor Marc Quinn.
It replaced a statue of Colston, which was torn down last month and tossed into the Avon River.
Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees said the city was going through an “incredibly delicate time.”

Attorney General William Barr admits unfair policing of African Americans is a 'widespread phenomenon' but rejects calls to defund the police and says 'black lives are protected' by cops
Attorney General William Barr said on Wednesday that the unfair policing of African Americans is a 'widespread phenomenon' before rejecting calls to defund the police.
Protests over the recent police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and other African Americans have ignited a national conversation about the role of law enforcement in society.
During an interview with ABC News' Pierre Thomas, Barr addressed policing in America, saying: 'I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt.'

High-Risk Florida Teen Dies of Coronavirus After Going to 100-Person Church Party
The Fort Myers, Florida community mourned after a local teen died of complications from the new coronavirus, COVID-19, at the end of June. Carsyn Leigh Davis, 17, had already battled several illnesses in her short life, including cancer and an autoimmune disorder, but it was COVID-19 that led to her death on June 23.
But a newly-released report from the medical examiner, shows a different side of her death. According to the report, Davis contracted COVID-19 after attending a 100-person party at First Youth Church, where attendees were not required to social distance, and she did not wear a mask.
And after Davis developed COVID-19 symptoms, her parents treated her at home, waiting nearly a week before taking her to a hospital. Her mother, a nurse, and a man identified as her father in the report, a physician assistant, gave Davis azithromycin and hydroxychloroquine, the malaria drug touted by President Donald Trump as a COVID-19 treatment despite warnings from the Food and Drug Administration that it caused virus patients to die more rapidly.

That being said, she says, "I appreciate the police department for taking the case so seriously, and I know my son appreciates it too. I don't think I will feel any relief until he is arrested. As of now it's just words on paper there hasn't been any real consequence."
The man who shot the video, Micheal Curry, tells us Moore MUST be arrested because "anyone who's willing to hit a kid like that, there's no telling what they're going to do next."

This is a moment of reckoning on race for White Christians
Growing up in the South, Robert P. Jones attended Southern Baptist churches, Sunday schools, even a Southern Baptist college.
But it was only in seminary, in his mid-20s, that Jones says he learned the full truth about Southern Baptists' white supremacist roots. The denomination was founded to defend slavery and did not formally rebuke its past until 1995, when Southern Baptists voted to apologize for their history of racism.
Jones was a social scientist before he realized how stubbornly racist ideas can persist in White churches.
"Rather, as the dominant cultural power in America, they have been responsible for constructing and sustaining a project to protect White supremacy and resist Black equality," he writes. "This project has framed the entire American story."
"White Christian churches have not just been complacent; they have not only been complicit," he writes in his book, "White Too Long: The Legacy of White Supremacy in American Christianity," publishing next month.

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.”

Seven high-risk sex offenders — 'the most dangerous kind of criminal' — released early in California over coronavirus
The Orange County District Attorney's Office warned residents that seven high-risk sex offenders have been released months early as part of the efforts in California to slow the spread of the coronavirus in jails, KCBS-TV reported.
"These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to re-offend," Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a news release. "They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break."
The sex offenders — convicted of crimes ranging from indecent exposure and sexual battery to child molestation — were released beginning April 7, many of them spending just days behind bars instead of the six months required by law for registered sex offenders who violate parole by removing or disabling GPS monitors.
"It is not the Court's responsibility to control the jail population by releasing these dangerous criminals back into our communities," Spitzer said. "The residents of Orange County deserve to have the peace of mind that registered sex offenders are being held accountable and not just let out the front door of a jail by a court commissioner who refuses to follow the law."

Anti-LGBTQ extremist busted cruising Grindr looking for a top
Anti-LGBTQ extremist Christiaan Otto is known for his inflammatory and demeaning social media posts, but now a group of Facebook users is fighting back, saying the religious zealot is a hypocrite.
They say that Otto has been secretly cruising Grindr and they’re publishing what they say is proof of their allegations.
The group Expose Christiaan Otto is making news in South Africa after making the public allegations that Otto was using the popular gay hookup app with a photo-less account and the username “RBayDiscreet.” The married extremist lives in Richards Bay.
In screenshots from a conversation with another user, the person identified as Otto shows photos of him with his shirt off and describes himself as “bottom/vers.”
Anti-LGBTQ hate group is behind bid to reopen churches & endanger communities
The anti-LGBTQ hate group Liberty Counsel, one of the groups that serve as the legal defense arm of the religious right, is helping to lead the push to reopen churches during the coronavirus pandemic.
The effort by evangelicals endangers the lives of parishioners and community members who would come in contact with the potentially infected churchgoers who had gathered in large groups.
The group is calling for churches to “ReOpen” on Sunday, May 3 following several instances of far-right ministers refusing to shut down services as part of measures banning large gatherings in a desperate attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
A Christian evangelist who mocked the response to the novel coronavirus pandemic has died after likely being infected while preaching on the streets of New Orleans. A Virginia minister who defied lockdown orders and vowed to keep preaching until he was arrested or died, saying he was protected by God, died less than a week later from COVID-19.
