Anti-Gay "Christian" Sues City For Not Being Allowed To Troll PRIDE Festival

Anti-Gay “Christian” Sues City For Not Being Allowed To Troll PRIDE Festival

Timothy J. Brown filed the suit last month in U.S. District Court against the city of Cookeville, TN and one of its police officers for allegedly violating his rights to freedom of speech.  During last year’s Pride festival when police asked him to move 50 feet away from the festival because he was holding up a sign with anti-gay Bible verses and  saying offensive things to festival attendees.

Brown, calls himself an “equal opportunity preacher,” 

In the suit, Brown says he was “exercising his constitutional rights and free exercise of religion by peacefully sharing his Christian message in a public park in the city,” and that he was threatened with arrest under the city’s code.

“Plaintiff sought, and continues to seek, to discuss issues from a religious perspective, to distribute religious literature, to display signs and to engage in religious speech through sharing his faith,” part of what the 25-page suit states. “Plaintiff was deprived of his right under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution to engage in free exercise of religion activities prohibited by the code, as interpreted and enforced by defendants.”

Brown also alleges that the city’s code “unconstitutionally compels plaintiff to move out of a traditional public forum.” despite the fact that the Pride festival organizers paid a fee to rent a portion of the park.

The suit says Brown has suffered injuries and damages as a result of being deprived of his rights, requests a trial by jury and asks that the city be prevented from enforcing the city’s code against Brown, who also asks for “nominal and/or compensatory and/or special and/or punitive damages” against the city and attorney’s fees.

Cookeville City Attorney Dan Rader said there will be a case management hearing conference July 12, regarding the suit.

 

Gay History 1965 - WATCH: Disturbing Anti-Gay Grade School Lecture by Head of the Miami Vice Squad: "Don't be gay or else!"

Gay History 1966 – WATCH: Disturbing Anti-Gay Grade School Lecture by Head of the Miami Vice Squad: “Don’t be gay or else!”

In a documentary program called “The Homosexual” that aired on WTVJ in Miami in 1966 Florida Detective John Sorenson of the Dade County Sheriff’s Department of Morals and Juvenile Squad terrorizes an auditorium of 8th graders on the dangers of “turning queer.”

Detective Sorenson warned his audience:

There may be some in this auditorium. There may be some here today that will be homosexual in the future. There are a lot of kids here. There may be some girls that will turn lesbian. We don’t know. But it’s serious, don’t kid yourselves about it. They can be anywhere. They can be judges, lawyers; we oughta know we’ve arrested all of them. So if any one of you have let yourself become involved with an adult homosexual or with another boy and you’re doing this on a regular basis you better stop quick because one out of three of you will turn queer. And if we catch you involved with a homosexual, your parents are going to know about it first. And you will be caught; don’t think you won’t be caught. Because this is one thing you cannot get away with. This is one thing if you don’t get caught by us, you’ll be caught by yourself and the rest of your life will be a living hell.”

Sorenson also once, stated “I would rather see any of my children dead than homosexual… and for that reason I feel there is no cure and because of the complete degenerecy of these people. They appear on the surface to be respectable, but they’re the lowest forms of people.”

By now Det. John Sorenson must himself be dead and that is just fine with me.

Presidential Executive Order Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty

EXECUTIVE ORDER

– – – – – – –

PROMOTING FREE SPEECH AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, in order to guide the executive branch in formulating and implementing policies with implications for the religious liberty of persons and organizations in America, and to further compliance with the Constitution and with applicable statutes and Presidential Directives, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Policy.  It shall be the policy of the executive branch to vigorously enforce Federal law’s robust protections for religious freedom.  The Founders envisioned a Nation in which religious voices and views were integral to a vibrant public square, and in which religious people and institutions were free to practice their faith without fear of discrimination or retaliation by the Federal Government.  For that reason, the United States Constitution enshrines and protects the fundamental right to religious liberty as Americans’ first freedom.  Federal law protects the freedom of Americans and their organizations to exercise religion and participate fully in civic life without undue interference by the Federal Government.  The executive branch will honor and enforce those protections.

Sec. 2.  Respecting Religious and Political Speech.  All executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall, to the greatest extent practicable and to the extent permitted by law, respect and protect the freedom of persons and organizations to engage in religious and political speech.  In particular, the Secretary of the Treasury shall ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that the Department of the Treasury does not take any adverse action against any individual, house of worship, or other religious organization on the basis that such individual or organization speaks or has spoken about moral or political issues from a religious perspective, where speech of similar character has, consistent with law, not ordinarily been treated as participation or intervention in a political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) a candidate for public office by the Department of the Treasury.  As used in this section, the term “adverse action” means the imposition of any tax or tax penalty; the delay or denial of tax-exempt status; the disallowance of tax deductions for contributions made to entities exempted from taxation under section 501(c)(3) of title 26, United States Code; or any other action that makes unavailable or denies any tax deduction, exemption, credit, or benefit.

Sec. 3.  Conscience Protections with Respect to Preventive-Care Mandate.  The Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Labor, and the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall consider issuing amended regulations, consistent with applicable law, to address conscience-based objections to the preventive-care mandate promulgated under section 300gg-13(a)(4) of title 42, United States Code.

Sec. 4.  Religious Liberty Guidance.  In order to guide all agencies in complying with relevant Federal law, the Attorney General shall, as appropriate, issue guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in Federal law.

Sec. 5.  Severability.  If any provision of this order, or the application of any provision to any individual or circumstance, is held to be invalid, the remainder of this order and the application of its other provisions to any other individuals or circumstances shall not be affected thereby.   

Sec. 6.  General Provisions.  (a)  Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i)   the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or 

(ii)  the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b)  This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c)  This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

As for how much of this Executive Order which is actually enforceable and legal is up in the air since the language is very vague.

As for ” Respecting Religious and Political Speech.”  The Johnson Amendment that stops religious organizations from preaching political opinions because of thier non-profit status was introduced and voted into law by Congress and only a vote in Congress can repeal it.

UC Davis College Protesters Shut Down Milo Yiannopoulos Event With PharmaDouche Shkreli

 

CNN reports:

A speech by right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos’ at UC Davis was over before it even started Friday after protests erupted, forcing sponsors to cancel the event. Thirty minutes before the Breitbart tech editor was scheduled to speak, the UC Davis College Republicans canceled the controversial talk after consulting with the university’s police department and student affairs officials. Former pharmaceutical executive, Martin Shkreli had also been scheduled to speak at the event.

“I am deeply disappointed with the events of this evening,” said Interim Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter. “Our community is founded on principles of respect for all views, even those that we personally find repellent. As I have stated repeatedly, a university is at its best when it listens to and critically engages opposing views, especially ones that many of us find upsetting or even offensive.”

Earlier in the evening, protesters blocked access to the venue. Surrounding the lecture hall with signs, they chanted, “Say it loud, say it clear, racists are not welcome here.” Yiannopoulos posted on Facebook that the event had been canceled “after violence from left-wing protestors.”

Shkreli, was captured on video by ABC 10’s Frances Wang as angry protesters surrounded him. One person in the crowd screamed, “You piece of shit!” at Shkreli and threw what appears to be dog poop at him, hitting Shkreli in the face.

 

UPDATE: CINDY BRADY GOT THE BOOT – Susan Olsen Goes Off On Hate Speech Filled Homophobic Rant On Facebook At Gay Actor

On Monday night openly gay actor, writer, producer Leon Acord-Whiting of  hit web-series Old Dogs & New Tricks  was a guest on the LA Talk Radio show; Two Chicks Talking Politics co-hosted by former child actress Susan Olsen of the the Brady Bunch.  Ms. Olsen a die hard Republican and Trump supporter and Mr. Acord did not exactly see eye to eye on many issues as Olsen spewed right wing lie and propaganda such as that you can’t be a patriot if you’re liberal, that there hasn’t been a surge in anti-gay and racial hate crimes and if there is, its Hillary’s fault. Olson also said that Hillary needs to tell people to stop protesting and on and on.

The next day said Acord “ I posted on my Facebook page that I felt dirty and guilty for normalizing her hateful rhetoric, and that LA Talk Radio should remove her from the air.

Olsen who saw the post then went off on an unhinged hate speech filled rant against Acord   One so profanity laden and filed with anti-gay slurs if Alice was alive today she would have smacked the shit out of her and made her eat a bar of soap.

In 2013 shortly the passage of same sex marriage Olsen posted this latter on her Facebook page where she voices her support for marriage equality and laid homage to her onscreen television father Robert Reed who was gay.
 
 “As a child, I was BLESSED to have another father figure in my life. He did not replace my own beloved, Norwegian version of Jed Clampett, nor would he have wanted to. He simply harmonized with all of my family values and brought his own heart to our table,” the former child star writes of Reed, who died in 1992 after a six-month battle with colon cancer. (The actor was also HIV positive, which his doctor listed as a “significant condition contributing to death.”) Calling him a “true king among men,” Olsen goes on to note the immense impact Reed had on her life. “This tempetuous actor who bottle fed puppies when he wasn’t quarreling with the heads of networks shaped my heart as much as my biological parents did,” she writes. “So I really can honestly say, ‘My dad was gay.'”

That is until Robert Reed said something that she didn’t like. Than Olsen probably called him a “fucking faggot”and stomped off with her Kitty Carryall cursing like a trucker under her breath.

Please contact LA Talk Radio at 818-351-3509 info@latalkradio.com and join us in denouncing homophobia, hate & intolerance and to get Susan Olson off the air.

Mississippi KKK Distributes Anti-Gay Flyers After Pulse Nightclub Massacre Claiming “First Amendment Right”

Mississippi KKK Distributes Anti-Gay Flyers After Pulse Nightclub Massacre Claiming First Amendment Rights

 

Unknown to many outside the state the Ku Klux Klan in Mississippi regularly distributes fliers with hateful messages.

Shortly after the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Florida that killed 49 and wounded 51 members of the LGBT community and their allies a Ku Klux Klan flyer began to appear at homes in Gautier and Ocean Springs, along the Gulf Coast over the weekend titled Boycott 101,”which talked about other states boycott of Mississippi over its harsh new anti-gay law and said among other things: “Don’t let the outside immoral crowds and their news media get your butt in a bind. We will never bow to homosexuality and bestiality or other unnatural sexual perversions that go against the laws of nature and GOD.”

Brent Waller, who identifies as the Imperial Wizard of the aforementioned KKK group, said it’s his right to distribute that hate, despite protestations from locals, and that locals can expect more to come.

“I got the same right under the First Amendment to pass out pamphlets and literature just the same as the newspaper does,” Waller told the Hattiesburg American.

Waller said they’re legal because “no one’s being targeted.”

“There’s some things about gays, but there’s also some things about blacks and we’re coming out with one on Muslims next week,” Waller said.

Waller said he’s just speaking on behalf of the state’s majority white population.

“We’re the Klan that’s been here since the Civil War,” Waller said. “We have long been the voice for the white right wing. People may not like our views, but we are entitled to them. We’re really going to get the message out this summer,” he said. “As long as we’re not using any inflammatory or hate-type material in our fliers we’re OK.”

A gay couple who found the flier in their driveway and have filed a police report, and additionally planned to contact the FBI and Southern Poverty Law Center.

Tennessee Church Displays Sign About Orlando Massacre Gods Wrath Is About To Start Falling Down On The Gays

 

Tennessee NBC affiliate:

A local church displayed a message targeting the LGBT community following the largest mass shooting in U.S. history, nearly a week ago.

Three days ago Pastor Jesse price of Beech Cliff Pentecostal Holiness Church put a message on the church’s sign that alliances of the LGBT community say condemn the gay community. However, the pastor does not feel as if he is condemning anyone.

“It’s like the wrath of God is going to start falling on the gays that’s all it said,” said Pastor Jesse Price.

A message posted in response to a mass shooting targeting the gay community.

“Homosexuals got shot down in Florida. It looks like God’s wrath is about to start pouring down on the gays.”

Pastor Jesse Price said this isn’t the first time he has posted a message geared toward the LGBT community.

“We are not trying to kill them. I’ve had a lot of signs up here that homosexuals need to be saved but they didn’t say anything about that one the only thing I said here in this one that god’s wrath looks like it’s going to start being poured down on the gays.”

The message has been torn down since its posting, but the pastor said he plans to replace it.

Gay and Anti-Semitic Groups To Sue Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube For Allowing Hate Speech

Twitter Youtube Facebook

Three French civil rights organizations The Jewish Students’ Union (UEJF), the anti-racist SOS Racism campaign and SOS Homophobie, have said they plan to take legal action against Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube for failing to monitor and remove messages of hate on their social media websites.

The  organizations accuse the three social media giants of taking more action against nudity than they do about hate messages posted to their platforms.

“These platforms seem more shocked by bits of naked breasts, which are promptly censored, than by incitements to hatred towards people or groups of people,” said SOS Racisme president Dominique Sopo.

In an independent study published  586 items which were “racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic or condoned terrorism or crimes against humanity” posted between March 31 to May 10th.  Of the nearly 600 hate messages, “only four percent were taken down from Twitter, seven percent from YouTube and 34 percent from Facebook”.

While Facebook ranked the best of the three, taking down 53 our of 156 messages, the three organization’s said in reality it “manifests a rigorous application of its rules on pornography”, but does not do the same for hate speech.

KNOCKOUT! – Nike FIRES Manny Pacquiao After “Gays Are Animals” Hate Speech

Nike Fires Picaro

“Nike Just Did It” and has fired boxer and Philippines Senate candidate Manny Pacquiao after the boxer made homophobic comments that claimed gay people were worse than animals.

“We find Manny Pacquiao’s comments abhorrent. Nike strongly opposes discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of the LGBT community,” Nike said in a statement. “We no longer have a relationship with Manny Pacquiao.  Any recent remarks made by Manny Pacquiao reflect his personal views. Nike is strongly opposed to discrimination of any kind and has a long history of supporting and standing up for the rights of GLBT individuals”

TMZ adds to its story:

Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us Manny personally tried to save the deal up until the last minute.

We’re told several members of Manny’s team had been communicating with Nike all morning — begging the company to reconsider and give Manny another chance.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. who beat Pacquiao in the so-called “super fight” last May, when asked about Pacquiao’s comments said “We should stay positive. We should let people live their lives the way they want to live their lives. I don’t have nothing against anyone…To each his own.”

Pacquiao, who is campaigning to move from the House of Representatives to the Senate in the Philippines, originally said: “If you have male-to-male or female-to-female [relationships], then people are worse than animals.”

Pacquiao later offered a weak apology, but stood by his opposition to gay marriage saying:

“I’m sorry for everyone who got hurt due to my comparison of gay people [homosexuals] to animals,” he said (via CNN). “It was my mistake. Please forgive me for those who I’ve hurt. But this does not change my position against same-sex marriage. That’s what I believe. My only mistake is comparing gay people to animals.”

Pacquiao  is training for his third bout against Timothy Bradley on April 9 in Las Vegas which is currently be called upon to be cancelled.
