Second LGBT student joins suit against Fuller Theological Seminary after getting expelled for entering into same-sex marriages
Last November, a student at Fuller Theological Seminary — the nation's largest interdenominational seminary — sued the school for discrimination after she was expelled for marrying another woman. Now, another former student is joining the lawsuit.
In the amended complaint filed Tuesday, Nathan Brittsan, an American Baptist Churches USA pastor, joined Joanna Maxon in requesting the school award them more than $1 million each to compensate for damages, Christianity Today reported.
Paul Southwick, the attorney representing Maxon and Brittsan, is arguing that Fuller is required to comply with Title IX, which bars federally funded educational programs from discriminating based on sex. However, religiously affiliated schools are often granted exceptions from Title IX regulations in order to accommodate for religious freedom.
"It's a very important case at this time in our nation's history," Southwick said, according to Christianity Today. "This case could set an important legal precedent that if an educational institution receives federal funding, even if it's religiously-affiliated, even if it's a seminary, that it's required to comply with Title IX prohibitions on sex discrimination as applied to LGBT individuals."

Ex-teacher harassed, ousted from Upper East Side middle school for being gay: suit
A former social studies teacher at an Upper East Side public middle school was relentlessly hectored by students and colleagues — and eventually let go — because he is gay and stood up for a bullied student, a new lawsuit alleges.
During his two-year tenure as a full-time teacher at Robert F. Wagner Middle School, Robert Halkitis suffered a campaign of harassment that included vandals scrawling a slur on his bulletin board and a student calling him a “f—ing f—-t” in his classroom, alleges a lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court on Monday.
The torment also included a school clerk suggesting that he was having a sexual relationship with a male colleague on school grounds, court papers say.
Janoris Jenkins released by Giants after using slur on social media
Former Pro Bowl cornerback Janoris Jenkins was released by the New York Giants on Friday, two days after using a slur on social media.
Coach Pat Schurmur said in a statement that the incident and Jenkins’ “refusal to acknowledge the inappropriate and offensive language, was the determining factor.”
The Twitter exchange occurred after Jenkins posted some of his statistics from this season, including four interceptions and 50 total tackles. A fan commented that those numbers are “irrelevant” since they haven’t contributed to many victories for the 2-11 Giants.
Restaurant Closed After Video Showed Owner Washing Kitchen Equipment in a Lake
Old Hickory, Tennessee's No. 1 Chinese Restaurant has pretty decent reviews, save for a Yelp comment from last year claiming its food has a "hint taste [sic] of soap or some other type of cleaner." It turns out, however, that when it comes to washing, that might be the least of the restaurant's problems.
Lance Glover and his girlfriend were visiting the nearby Old Hickory Lake yesterday, when they saw the restaurant's owners in the lake, scrubbing down kitchen supplies. In a video that Glover shared with FOX17 Nashville and posted on Facebook, someone is crouched down in the water cleaning a rack, followed by a second person who brings along plastic containers.

A patchwork of anti-discrimination laws don't protect LGBTQ workers
While working at a Billings, Montana, auto dealership in 2016, Kathleen O’Donnell said mechanics would frequently sling insults behind her back, calling her “faggot” and referring to her as “Bob” or “Joe” because of her closely cropped hair. A few days before her six-month probationary period at the dealership ended, O’Donnell recalled, her manager, with tears in his eyes, told her he had to fire her because she was gay. It was the first time O’Donnell had been fired from a job.

North Carolina police officer fired for following the 'Billy Graham Rule,' lawsuit says
A North Carolina police officer is suing for religious discrimination after he said he was fired for refusing to spend extended time with a woman who isn’t his wife, a practice commonly known as the “Billy Graham Rule.”
Manuel Torres, 51, worked as a deputy for the Lee County Sheriff for five years when his boss asked him to train a female deputy in July 2017. Torres requested a religious accommodation, the suit alleges, saying he “holds the strong and sincere religious belief that the Holy Bible prohibits him, as a married man, from being alone for extended periods with a female who is not his wife.”
Torres, a Baptist who serves as a deacon at his local church, said in the suit that training his colleague would leave the appearance of “sinful conduct.”

Indianapolis Catholic School threatened to expel a gay student for supporting LGBTQ rights
Indianapolis Archbishop Charles Thompson, who ordered the mass firing of any teachers at the diocese’s schools, also had no problem allowing school administrators to threaten a gay student with expulsion if he didn’t stop speaking out for social justice.
The archdiocese has admitted it instructed all schools under its umbrella to immediately enforce all employment contracts – effectively a blanket order to fire any LGBTQ staff members. Over 70 schools in central Indiana are under the archdiocese’s administration.
“To effectively bear witness to Christ, whether they teach religion or not, all ministers in their professional and private lives must convey and be supportive of Catholic Church teaching,” the archdiocese said in a statement sent last week.

Parents protest vulgar anti-LGBTQ priest appointed to teach pre-teens at Catholic school
Rev. Erik Richtsteig is supposed to become a new youth pastor working with kids ages four to 15 in Salt Lake City’s Catholic schools. But more than 150 parents have signed a petition opposing his appointment after discovering his anti-LGBTQ and misogynist social media posts.
According to New York Daily News:
“In a post on Facebook, the paper noted, the priest said that images shared by LGBTQ individuals in June (Pride month) looked ‘like a gnome vomited.’
He also would not accept any friend requests from people who had a rainbow filter over their picture.”
He has reportedly also followed Facebook pages with titles like, “Male feminists are p*ssies,” “Right wing extremist” and “Obama has to go.”

Christian author, pastor renounces faith, issues lengthy apology for previous beliefs
Joshua Harris, popular Christian author and former church leader, has renounced his faith and issued an apology to the LGBTQ community for offending its sensibilities with Christian tenets.
Harris, a former leader at Maryland's Covenant Life Church, said that he was sorry for contributing to a "culture of exclusion and bigotry" that came along with his Christian faith.
Earlier in July, Harris revealed in an Instagram post his decision to leave his faith behind, admitting that he had "undergone a massive shift in regard to my faith in Jesus."
He wrote, "The popular phrase for this is 'deconstruction,' the biblical phrase is 'falling away.' By all measurements that I have for defining a Christian, I am not a Christian. Many people tell me that there is a different way to practice faith and I want to remain open to this, but I'm not there now.

Writing as Therapy
Writing therapy is the cheapest and easily accessible form of therapy.
People have used writing as a medium for emotional expression for ages.
Directed writing can be your own version of therapy.
The concept of writing as therapy was first introduced by New York psychologist Dr Ira Progoff in the mid-1960s.
“As a practising psychotherapist who had studied under Carl Jung, Progoff developed what he called the Intensive Journal Method, a means of self-exploration and personal expression based on the regular and methodical upkeep of a reflective psychological notebook,” writes Sharon Hinsull of Counselling Directory.
Many people have so many feelings of hurt, stress, envy, anxiety and regret, but they rarely stop, think and make sense of them.

Monster who left baby girl needing surgery after ‘severe’ sex attack jailed
A monster who left a 1-year-old girl needing surgery after a “severe” sex attack, and then tried to blame her mom, has been jailed.
Alan Kusz, 43, commit the vile offense at the 14-month-old infant’s family home in Ayrshire, Scotland, in April 2018, the High Court in Glasgow heard.
The court also heard how Kusz then tried to blame the infant’s mother for the injuries, which a doctor disturbingly described as the “most severe” he had ever seen.
When cops apprehended Kusz, who was often in the company of the child and her mom, he said that he had left the baby and her mother one evening to walk his dog.
He claimed he only returned when he heard the girl “screaming.”

Catholic order releases names of members accused of abuse
A Baltimore-based Catholic religious order that sponsors schools across the U.S. has released a list of dozens of members accused of sexually abusing children.
The list released Friday by the Xaverian Brothers includes two current members "with a credible or established offense." The group, a separate entity not part of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, says no credibly accused brothers are in active ministry.
