Gay Couple Attacked At Church, Prayed Over To Be Made "Straight" - VIDEO

Gay Couple Attacked At Church, Prayed Over To Be Made “Straight” – VIDEO

An Oklahoma gay couple said they were tricked into attending a church service where they were attacked by the congregation, with one being held down while being prayed for to be made “straight”.

Sean Cormie’s family had been asked repeatedly by his family to attend a service at their church in Blackwell, Oklahoma and bring along his boyfriend, Gary Gardner.

Cormie told News 4: “I wanted to go to church to make my mom proud and make her happy.”

But he did not expect what happened next.

The service was normal but at the end, something unexpected happened. Cormie said as 12 to 15 congregants circled around Gardner and himself, their prayer growing louder. Meanwhile, they said the pastor began making statements against homosexuality.

“‘It’s a sin, it’s an abomination, you need to realize, wake up, and see it for a sin,’” Cormie said.

The prayer got louder and louder until the two men felt so humiliated, they got up to leave. But Gardner was shuffled out of the building alone.

“They held me down, pinned me down, and I’m crying” Cormie also said he was punched in the face. “I was just crying ‘mercy, mercy.'”

When they finally let him up, he went to the Blackwell Police Department to file a report. The police chief confirmed the incident is being investigated but wouldn’t comment further.

Pastors Bill and Tami McKissick said in a statement, “On behalf of First Assembly we have been asked by the media to respond to the allegations that have been made. This began as a family matter that escalated. Our church would never condone restraint of any person unless they were engaged in violent activity. There is much more to this incident, and we are cooperating fully with law enforcement to hopefully bring all of the facts to light as a rush to judgment is not in anyone’s best interest.”

Cormie has said that he wants the people involved to suffer the ramifications of their actions.

Sure Jan: Kellyanne Conway Claims She Was Assaulted

CNN reports:

Kellyanne Conway says that she was grabbed and shaken by a woman while out with her teenage daughter in a Maryland restaurant late last year. In an interview with CNN, the White House counselor to President Donald Trump talked about the alleged assault for the first time publicly.

She recounted how the woman, who was later identified by authorities as a 63-year-old Maryland resident, approached her “screaming her head off” at Uncle Julio’s, a Mexican restaurant in the DC suburb of Bethesda, as Conway’s middle school-aged daughter looked on.

Conway said she called 911, though the woman had left before local police arrived. After an investigation, Mary Elizabeth Inabinett was charged in November with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct. A trial is set for March in Maryland state court.

Las Vegas Gay Couple Attacked At Home While Neighbors Watch And Do Nothing

A Las Vegas, Nevada gay couple were attacked and assaulted outside their house in an anti-gay hate crime while their neighbors watched and did nothing to help them. 

On Thursday night, Charles Clements drove to pick up his boyfriend, Vincent, from the Walmart where he works. When they arrived back at their Las Vegas home, both Vincent and Clements encountered the two attackers.

Vincent, said he recognized one of the attackers as someone he works with at Walmart. 

“I was about to unlock the door, the next thing I hear, (Vincent) he’s calling my name.” 

“I come back, I see my boyfriend fighting with the guy.”

Clements said he and his boyfriend were specifically targeted because they are gay..

“It was all about gay bashing,” Charles said. “The guy came up to my boyfriend’s job, calling him an abomination, calling him fag.”

The fight eventually moved onto the front porch of the house, where a glass table shattered.

“There was a lot of glass on the floor so the guy came around,” Clements said.

“He picked up the glass. I was like, ‘Don’t do that.’ And he started stabbing my boyfriend in the back. The guy was kicking him in his ribs,” he added.

Clements said he got hit in the head with a piece of glass. Both he and Vincent were hospitalized following the alleged attack. Vincent has two broken ribs and a punctured lung.

Clements said his neighbors witnessed the assault but that no one called the police or interceded to help.

Police  are investigating the incident but no arrests have been made.

Uber Driver Kicks Lesbian Couple Out Of Car For Being Gay - VIDEO

UBER Driver Verbally Assaults Gay Couple Then Drags Them As He Drives Away

A NYC Uber driver verbally bombarded a gay newlywed couple with anti-gay slurs for kissing in the back of his car early Wednesday in Manhattan, then drove off as one of the men was exiting the ride, dragging and leaving him with cuts and bruises.

Taray Carey and his new husband, Alex Majkowski, were headed with a friend to a bar near the couple’s East Village home when the trio ordered the Uber ride-share near West 52nd Street and Ninth Avenue around 1:50 a.m. Wednesday morning,

Near the end of the ride, Carey and Majkowski shared a quick kiss in the backseat of the Toyota Camry.

“Are you f-gs?” the driver asked “Are you f—-ts? Are you f—-ts?” the driver railed. “In my country you’d be beheaded for that,” adding that he was from Russia.

The driver, who was identified only as “Denis” by a screenshot Carey took of his Uber profile, then “started driving like a madman,” said Carey. 

The couple’s friend hopped out first when the car was stopped at a red light.

Carey tried to follow and was halfway out the door when he realized he was snagged on the seatbelt — and the driver took off.

Carey said he was dragged about a quarter of a block near East Fourth Street and Second Avenue, leaving him with cuts and scrapes on his hand and knee, as well as a “golf ball”-sized welt on the back of his head.

Carey was refunded the $17.46 for his trip, and Uber was probing the complaint, a spokesperson said.

“What’s been reported is very concerning to us,” the statement said. “Uber does not tolerate any form of discrimination. The driver’s access to the app has been removed as we continue to investigate.”

MIAMI: Lyft Driver Pulls Out Gun, Tells Passenger He Wants to Kill All Gay People

A Miami man says on a recent ride his Lyft driver pulled out a gun, used homophobic slurs, and said he wanted to kill all gay people before assaulting him and throwing him out of the car.

NBC Miami reports :

Andres Berreondo didn’t think twice when he ordered a ride on Lyft Thursday afternoon, which is something he says he usually does.

But this time, he didn’t know if he would make it out alive.

“I can tell he was with an attitude, and even from the beginning with this bad energy,” he said.

Berreondo said he noticed the driver was not following the GPS maps. That’s when he says the man snapped – calling him homophobic slurs.

Then he says he pulled out a gun and told Berreondo, “I want to kill everyone that is gay.”

In tears and in fear for his life, Borreondo called 911.

After about 10 minutes, he says the man finally stopped the car, hitting him as he forced him out.

“I start getting scared and somehow he stops,” he said. “He pulled me out like that and kicked me in the leg, I get out of the car.”

Lyft released the following statement: “The safety of our community is Lyft’s top priority, and the behavior described here is unacceptable. There is no place in the Lyft community for discrimination or violence of any kind. As soon as we were made aware of this incident, we permanently deactivated the driver. We have been in contact with the passenger to offer our full support, and stand ready to assist law enforcement with any investigation.

>Miami police is investigating the incident.

 

NY Appeals Court Overturns Hasidic Man’s Conviction Of Assault and Gay Bashing

NY Court Overturns Hasidic Man’s Conviction Of Assault and Gay Bashing

The Second Judicial Department Appellate Division on Wednesday overturned the conviction of Mayer Herskovic’s for last year in the beating of gay black man Taj Patterson, who became blind in one eye as a result of the assault against him on December 2013 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Patterson was walking in Williamsburg, neighborhood when he was attacked by a dozen men who were part of an Orthodox neighborhood watch group.

The men beat Patterson while saying, “Stay down, faggot, stay the fuck down.” He was left blind in one eye after the brutal attack.

The men accused Patterson of vandalizing cars, even though they had not filed a police report and police found the claim of vandalism to be unfounded.

Several months later, five men were indicted. Charges were dismissed against two of them, two of them pleaded guilty and got community service, but Mayer Herskovic’s case went to tria

Herskovic was found guilty at his non-jury trial in September 2016 of gang assault and other charges. 

The appeals panel cited Patterson’s “inability to positively identify any of his attackers, the varying accounts regarding the incident, and the DNA evidence, which was less than convincing,” as their reason for overturning the conviction and the indictment.

The judges also found that the DNA testing fell below traditional standards — citing that the lab had relied on less genetic material than normally allowed and that the numbers didn’t definitively point to Herskovic as the attacker.

“We respect the court’s decision,” said a spokesman with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office.

In order to retry the case, the DA’s office would have to secure a fresh indictment. The office did not immediately indicate whether or not it intended to convene another grand jury.

In June, Mr. Patterson sued the New York Police Department and New York City in federal court, claiming they improperly favored the Shomrim, the Orthodox security patrol to which some of the five alleged assailants.

The lawsuit is still pending in US District Court in Brooklyn.
