New Catholic bishop: ‘Gayism’ is a ‘disease’ which has to be ‘cured’
The Pope’s new bishop Alfred Rotich also thinks gay sex should be illegal.
The Pope’s latest appointment as a bishop in Kenya, Alfred Rotich, believes gay people can be ‘cured’.
Rotich told tabloid newspaper The Nairobian: ‘To me, gayism is a disease in the sense that there is a malfunction in the orientation of the person.
‘A gay man, for instance, takes a look in the mirror and wants to convince himself that he is a woman housed in man’s structure.
‘Rehabilitation can cure the disease. What gays require from us is compassion. Immediately gayism manifests itself, the parents, counsellor or pastor of such an individual should note it and address it.’

Why is rape still so prevalent in 2020?
The #metoo movement has made talking about rape far less taboo, so why isn’t sexual violence being reduced? In honour of Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week 2020, Lizzy Dening, founder of Survivor Stories, reports on the reasons why we're still shockingly at risk
It’s 2020 and we’re slowly getting better at talking about rape, thanks in part to initiatives like #metoo and the Million Women Rise march. But for every forward step, the statistics around sexual violence remain bleak – and things are actually getting worse.
It’s estimated that one in five women and 4% of men have experienced some type of sexual assault since the age of 16, with roughly 3.1% of women experiencing a sexual assault each year. Meanwhile, rape cases referred by police to the Crown Prosecution Service have fallen by 32%, and convictions have dropped by 21%, in the year leading up to September 2019. So what exactly is going on?
Sidewalk Preachers Say They Want to 'Take a Sword' to Gays
In a new video posted to YouTube, preachers from a religious sect have expressed a desire to put a sword to queer people.
Captured on the streets of Dalston in East London, the video was posted on a YouTube channel for The Church of Yahawashi. The organization is an extremist sect of Black Hebrew Israelites. In the video, the preachers say that their main channel was recently deactivated. They then went on to threaten LGBTQ+ people.
“There’s a lot of stupid people here,” the main preacher in the footage says, referring to Dalston. “Because we’ve just come out of the — I don’t know if it’s a pub or a slash restaurant. We had two faggots in there that we’ve had to keep eyes on because certain brothers, most of the brothers, no actually all of the brothers, we don’t like faggots.” Brothers surrounding him chime in with their agreement.

Kanye West joins stadium “prayer rally” with some of America’s most anti-LGBTQ activists
Rapper Kanye West announced he will appear at Awaken2020, a stadium-sized prayer rally hosted by some of the nation’s most anti-LGBTQ religious conservatives. After West’s announcement so many people rushed online to get free tickets to the event, the group’s website crashed.

One of the songs is an ode to Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain most frequently identified with religious controversy over LGBTQ rights.

The Supreme Court will hear 2 major cases about when religious schools can ignore civil rights laws
The Supreme Court announced on Wednesday that it would hear a pair of cases concerning the “ministerial exemption” to employment discrimination laws. Broadly speaking, the “ministerial exemption” provides that religious “ministers” are not protected by civil rights laws in their workplace — so a church could, for example, fire its preacher because the preacher is black.

Ellen and Science Confirm: Rich People Only Care About Themselves
Surprised that Ellen DeGeneres was seen yukking it up with George W. Bush at a football game last weekend? Don’t be! Rich people love hanging out with other rich people. So, since Ellen’s a multimillionaire, the 43rd President of the United States is a multimillionaire, and Charlotte Jones Anderson—the Dallas Cowboys’ Executive Vice President who invited both of them to Sunday’s game—is a multimillionaire, it actually all makes perfect sense that they’d all want to socialize together.
Still, it is confusing to think about how DeGeneres, one of the nation’s foremost openly gay celebrities would, could look past Bush’s years of using the bully pulpit to advocate against LGBTQ rights—not to mention, uhhhh, the unnecessary wars he started in Iraq and Afghanistan, which have killed millions of people and traumatized countless others.
Ellen tried to explain away the cognitive dissonance of all this on her talk show Monday morning, saying that “just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them.” But disagreeing about the Bush administration’s ongoing legacy of global violence against Muslim people seems like more than just a difference of opinion.
Does Ellen not understand why people are disgusted by that video of her and W. palling around at the football game? Does she just not care?
(Paul continues on with the observation that "the love of money is the root of all evil." 1 Timothy 6:10 Miller emphasizes that "it is the love of money that is the obstacle to faith, not the money itself." Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!")

The world wonders what's happened to America
What happens to a country that is an idea, when that idea turns ugly?
Since the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the United States has been the leader of the free world economically, militarily, but also -- as communism and fascism fell by the wayside -- as an idea.
They went too far in Iraq in 2003, got too greedy before 2008, and let Syria down in 2013. But still, the US' obsession with painstakingly transparent self-analysis, allocation of blame and rooting out failure, got it back on top. However much you hate it, the idea seemed to justify its existence.
But this has been a difficult month. Well, a difficult year. Actually, scratch that too: everything since November 2016 has been discombobulating. I recall watching American expats, Europeans, Lebanese aghast in Beirut when Donald Trump won. It seemed to them like the wheels were coming off civilization. But surely, they could not forever, as the idea of the United States was designed to be tamper-proof?
