Rev. Franklin Graham slams law Requiring Schools to Teach LGBTQ History

“We’re the majority and we’re having the minority push something down our throats that we don’t accept, and we need to speak out and fight against this.”

franklin-grahamTelevangelist and staunch Trump supporter Franklin Graham came out in strong defense of a New Jersey mayor for his opposition to a state law that will require public schools to add LGBTQ history to their curriculum.

Graham, the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association — the notoriously anti-LGBTQ right-wing organization — was a guest on The Todd Starnes radio show a few months ago.  Starnes is the ultra-conservative Fox News Radio host whose show “is here to defend the faith by reporting the truth.”

He asked Graham about a decision of the mayor of Barnegat, N.J., Alfonso Cirulli, who spoke outagainst the legislation.

Graham said that he agreed with Cirulli wholeheartedly.

“The mayor is absolutely right,” Graham started. “[Cirulli] said, ‘this is an affront to God’,” the pastor continued. “He’s correct,” he said. “I don’t believe that the schools have the right to teach our children something that is an affront to God. So the mayor is absolutely right and I back him 100%.”

 

To justify his reasoning, Graham used a common — if overused — homophobic argument that demonizes LGBTQ people.

 

“God made us and created us, he made us male and female so that we can carry on the population, so that we have children and that we would increase, and homosexuality goes against God’s plan for the human race.”

Asking for guidance, the radio host told the televangelist that “a lot of schools around the country are dealing with [the same issue] right now,” and parents call him on his show asking what they should do. “What advice do you give Christian moms and dads,” he asked his guest. “Do they pull their kids out of public school, do they home-school? Private school?”Graham immediately suggested pulling kids out of the public system and enrolling them in private schools.

Curriculum-Centre

 

“We can fight [by] writing your legislators, letting them know how you feel, organizing a march on your state capital,” the right-wing pastor added. And “if the churches would just get behind this and begin to speak out, it would make a big difference,” he said.

“We’re the majority and we’re having the minority push something down our throats that we don’t accept, and we need to speak out and fight against this.”

The enlightening exchange of ideas came just a day after Starnes compared immigrants to “Nazis invading France and Western Europe,” Media Matters noted.

 

“I do believe that we have been invaded,” he said on the Aug. 14 edition of his show. “We have been invaded by a horde, a rampaging horde, of illegal aliens. This has been a slow-moving invasion. And that’s — I believe that’s a fair description of what we have suffered here in this country.

Episcopal Priest Gives Pre-Paid Gas Cards to Women Seeking Abortions

Anyone can be a church leader in Babylon today, Episcopal priest Reverend Katherine Ragsdale in a prime example of that!

Rag 1

Episcopal priest Reverend Katherine Ragsdale, with her organization National Abortion Federation, will hand out pre-paid gas cards for women seeking abortions, according to FaithWire.

“Since there are a limited number of providers and states continue to impose additional restrictions, many women have to travel long distances to reach the closest provider who can help them,” NAF said in a statement. “And this situation will only worsen as the political environment continues to become more hostile toward abortion rights.”

Ragsdale, who is the Interim President and CEO of NAF, believes the initiative will provide more support for women “so that they can make, and act on, the best decisions for themselves and their families.”

The pilot program will run for three months and start in states that have waiting periods or other abortion restrictions, LifeNews reports.

The response comes in light of several states furthering restrictive abortion limits. States such as Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana have nearly abolished terminations and several other states are poised to do the same.

rag 2
Former Plymouth priest the Rev. Mally Lloyd married the Rev. Katherine Ragsdale, dean and president of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, on New Year’s Day. The Rev. Lloyd, a former pastor at Christ Church in Plymouth, is now a ranking official of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.

As the first lesbian to become a leader of an Episcopal seminary, Ragsdale has been no stranger to controversy.  World Magazine reported Ragsdale’s allegiance lies not only with pro-choice causes, but pro-abortion.

“Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done,” she said at a pro-abortion rally. “Let me hear you say it: abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done.

She continued: “The ability to enjoy God’s good gift of sexuality without compromising one’s education, life’s work, or ability to put to use God’s gifts and call is simply [a] blessing.”

Catherine Glenn Foster, president and CEO of Americans United for Life, the largest pro-life legal organization in the country, believes the pilot program doesn’t help women but abortion centers.

“This is a half-baked publicity stunt by NAF meant to create the impression that there is even a need for this,” she said. “Why doesn’t the abortion industry—dominated by a ‘non-profit’ that has over a hundred million in the bank—lower its prices instead? Because it’s all about profit for them.”

Joel Osteen Celebrates LGBTQ Pride at Lady Gaga Event

Isaiah 13:19
And Babylon, the beauty of kingdoms, the glory of the Chaldeans’ pride, Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

Pride event 2
Songs were interspersed with tributes to various homosexual leaders in the gay rights movement. Gaga also lectured the crowd that throughout the evening they would need to pay close attention to using the right gender pronouns, an overture to the “trans community,” because “we are all in this together.” 

Pastor Joel Osteen and his wife, ministers of the Word of Faith prosperity gospel movement, were seen at Lady Gaga’s pride celebration at Apollo Theater. The New York Daily News reports,

Poehler wasn’t the only heavy hitter in the crowd. From Alaska Thunderf–k, a drag performer who won Season 2 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” to the controversial televangelist and anti-LGBTQ pastor Joel Osteen, the event drew an eclectic mix of fans, industry insiders and celebrities, from the movies (Catherine Zeta-Jones, Michael Douglas), the music universe (Clive Davis, Adam Lambert), the fashion world (Alexander Wang), television (John Oliver, Camila Mendes) and the America’s gay Royal couple and Harlem residents Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka.

It was reported that Osteen was wearing a blue blazer while his wife was wearing a long, black dress.

Olsteen 1

Osteen asserted a few years ago that he believes that the Scriptures are clear that homosexuality is a sin. Yet, he has continuously softened his tone and downplayed the significance toward homosexuality since then. In an effort to remain culturally relevant and inclusive, Osteen generally avoids the topic altogether.

pride eventIn 2017 during a conversation with with HuffPost’s Marc Lamont Hill and Joel Osteen and his wife Victoria Osteen,  HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill asked whether gay marriage is against the fundamental “rules” of Christianity.

Osteen replied, “It would be, but I don’t really focus on a lot of those things.” “I try to stay in my lane of what I feel called to do. [Gay marriage] does come up in interviews and things, but that’s not my core message.”

What his message does include, Osteen said, is advising his congregation on how to let go of the past, raise good children and achieve their dreams. He added that the sexuality of gays and lesbians is one of the “issues” faced by many different types of people in his church.

“Everybody’s welcome, but my take on it is it’s easy to make one issue — to become known for that or to let it sidetrack your message,” he said. “If you look at our congregation … including myself, we all have issues. Everybody’s on a journey.”

An Angry Spirit Emerges From Kenneth Copeland When Interviewed By Inside Edition Video

An alarmingly angry Kenneth Copeland defends his wealth to news reporter.

Televangelist Kenneth Copeland snapped at an Inside Edition reporter in a recent interview about his lavish lifestyle and private-jet use, saying he makes no apologies for the fact that his hypnotized blind followers ministry has made him “a very wealthy man.”

Mr. Copeland, owner of the Texas-based Kenneth Copeland Ministries, was confronted by Inside Edition’s Lisa Guerrero about using his private jets to travel to and from his vacation homes. Ms. Guerrero specifically asked him about a comment he made in 2015 in defending his private-jet use, when he argued that commercial planes are full of “a bunch of demons” who would bog down his busy schedule with prayer requests.

“Do you really believe that human beings are demons?” the reporter asked.

“No I did not,” Mr. Copeland responded, angrily. “And don’t you ever say I did.”

He said that he was talking about the demons inside of people, such as alcohol abuse, not the people themselves.

Perverted New York School Bus Driver Predator Who Raped 14-year-old Girl Will Serve No Prison Time

In 2014 a 60 year old school bus driver in New York was jailed for masturbating…. I guess the laws have now changed, the more harm that is done to a child the less punishment that is received! 

A New York man who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old girl will serve only 10 years probation and no time in jail for his crime, a judge has ruled.

shane-piche-1-640x480

Shane Piche, a 25-year-old former Watertown City School District bus driver met his young victim through his bus route last year. He bought the girl gifts before inviting her to his home, offering her alcohol and raping her in June 2018, according to the Watertown Daily Times

Piche was arrested in September of the same year and was initially charged with second-degree rape, first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child and endangering the welfare of a child.

The former bus driver, who pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of third-degree rape in February 2019, was handed his controversial sentence on April 25 by Jefferson County Supreme Court Judge James P. McClusky.

The judge also ruled that in addition to his 10 years of probation, Piche will have to pay $1,000 to register as a Level 1 sex offender — the lowest risk designation — and cannot be left alone with anyone under the age of 17. The district attorney’s office had previously requested Piche register as a Level 2 offender.

The verdict sparked an uproar, with many slamming the sentence’s leniency, including the victim’s family.

“I wish Shane Piche would have received time in jail for the harm he caused to my child,” the girl’s mother wrote in a statement, WWNY reports. “He took something from my daughter she will never get back and has caused her to struggle with depression and anxiety.”

Judge McClusky later justified the ruling by pointing out Piche’s previously clean record and noting there was only one victim in the case, according to the Watertown Daily Times

As of Tuesday afternoon, a petition seeking to recall Judge McClusky had received over 9,400 signatures, 600 shy of its 10,000-signature goal.

Buffalo Niagara Int’l Airport Bans Chick-fil-A To PUNISH The CEO Because of His Views On Marriage

Another Chick-fil-A restaurant has been discriminated against and barred from doing business because of their non-compliance/agreement to the ways of Sodom and Gomorrah!

Operations Inside A Chick-fil-A Location As Restaurant Opens Manhattan Outpost In Northern Push

Another Chick-fil-A restaurant has been discriminated against and barred from doing business because of their non-compliance/agreement to the ways of Sodom and Gomorrah! The food chain is allegedly anti LGBT, however; the food chain has never discriminated against a LGBT person, or entity but some company’s still seem to have a problem with the CEO voicing his beliefs regarding marriage, therefore they are basically bullying the Chick-fil-A CEO by banning the food chain from certain locations, in this instance- the Buffalo Niagara International Airport cut all ties with the fast-food chain, despite that it was factored into the original plans for a full renovation of the airport facility.

Revelations 13:17-  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

The “mark of the beast in this instance is “LGBT”

anti-LGBT

 

Assemblyman Sean Ryan (D) took to Twitter March 29 to condemn hospitality company, Delaware North and the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA), for granting Chick-fil-A permission to set up shop in the New York airport.

“I strongly urge the NFTA to reverse this decision,” the Democrat wrote. “I don’t believe the leadership of the NFTA intends to help spread hate and discrimination, but allowing a corporation like Chick-fil-A to do business at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will help to fund continued divisive anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. New York is a welcoming state that celebrates diversity.”

Assemblyman Sean Ryan@SeanMRyan149

I’m disappointed in the @NFTA decision to bring a Chick-fil-A to the @BUFAirport.

892 people are talking about this
I guess the anti-Christ companies are trying to bully the Chick -fil-A  CEO into submission OR punish him because of his beliefs. 

When the decision was reversed, Ryan tweeted an update, writing, “I applaud the decision that has been made to remove Chick-fil-A from plans for the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Thank you to everyone who reached out to share their opinion.”

“We hope in the future the NFTA will make every effort to contract with businesses that adhere to anti-discrimination policies, and we’re confident another vendor who better represents the values of the Western New York community will replace Chick-fil-A as a part of this project in the very near future,” he added.

It is unclear what company will take Chick-fil-A’s place inside the airport but it doesn’t really matter because Chick-fil-A is an American icon who serves delicious food, that’s what people want- GOOD FOOD and not every American is on-board with the LGBTQ lifestyle so don’t expect Chick-fil-A to go out of business  because of the beliefs of the CEO (which should be respected), it just aint gonna happen! 

food Just last week, administrators with the San Antonio City Council rejected a potential Chick-fil-A location at the San Antonio International Airport, citing the Atlanta-based chain’s “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

The controversy has become so prominent that even a presidential candidate has now weighed in. Pete Buttigieg, who is running for the 2020 Democratic nomination, has said he’d be open to brokering a “peace deal” between Chick-fil-A and those who disagree with the restaurant CEO’s views on marriage.

                         

Following the decision to pull Chick-fil-A from Buffalo, a spokesperson for the chain said that recent reports “continue to drive an inaccurate narrative about our brand.”

“We do not have a political or social agenda or discriminate against any group. More than 145,000 people from different backgrounds and beliefs represent the Chick-fil-A brand,” they told WKBW-TV. “We embrace all people, regardless of religion, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.”

Leviticus 20:26 – And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD [am] holy, and have severed you from [other] people, that ye should be mine.
Leviticus 18:22 – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.

New York passes bill allowing abortion up to birth, for any reason

The most shameful part of all of this is the number women who are in support of this abominable bill. Women- the only givers of life are in support of baby murder, we are certainly living in the last days! It would be better for a woman to use birth control instead of murdering a baby! 

The most shameful part of all of this is the number women who are in support of this abominable bill. Women- the only givers of life are in support of baby murder, we are certainly living in the last days! It would be better for a woman to use birth control instead of murdering a baby! 

Fools

After an intense debate for and against the proposal, the New York state Legislature passed a bill that makes it legal for doctors and other health care professionals, such as midwives and physician assistants, to perform abortions up until birth for any reason in the state. This really shouldn’t be a big surprise to anyone. Once the bill was passed allowing men to change their sex from male to female, and women from female to male this act (which wont be the final act) was inevitable. 

The so-called Reproductive Health Act that abortion advocates have been trying to get passed for 12 years and has been vehemently opposed by religious and conservative groups, passed with a 38-28 vote and thunderous applause in the state Senate chamber. The bill codifies federal abortion rights guaranteed under the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision and removes abortion from the state’s criminal code. Which means the American “church” is a useless entity that “goes with the flow” so that their checks will continue to roll in from the government! 

“We have a president who’s made it very, very clear that he wants to overturn Roe v. Wade,”  state Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said at a news conference ahead of the vote, according to the Albany Times Union. “Today, here in New York, we are saying no. We are saying no, not here in New York. And we’re not just saying no. We’re saying that here in New York, women’s health matters. We’re saying here in New York, women’s lives matter. We’re saying here in New York, women’s decisions matter.”

Abortion was legalized in New York some three years before the Roe v. Wade decision, but remained on the state’s criminal code, making it a felony to perform late-term abortions according to the Democrat & Chronicle.

The law defined homicide as “conduct which causes the death of a person or an unborn child with which a female has been pregnant for more than 24 weeks.”

The Reproductive Health Act removes abortion from the penal code, and further notes in part that: “Every individual has the fundamental right to choose or refuse contraception or sterilization. Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion, pursuant to this article.”

NYS Catholic Conference

The New York State Catholic Conference said in a statement on Facebook that Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was expected to sign the controversial bill at a reception in the Executive Mansion immediately after legislators voted to approve it. And Cuomo appeared ready as he celebrated Sarah Weddington, the lawyer nationally known for successfully arguing the winning side of the Roe v. Wade case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Weddington was recognized in the chamber during the vote.

“Sarah Weddington made history in 1973 when she won the Roe v. Wade case at the age of 27. I am so thrilled that this incredible woman is joining us at the bill signing of the #ReproductiveHealthAct, which will protect Roe v. Wade in the State of New York,” Cuomo tweeted before the vote Tuesday.

As the debate over the bill was underway Tuesday, supporters chanted, “Free abortion on demand, can we do it, yes we can.” Those who opposed the proposal chanted back while holding posters with images of babies and signs reading messages such as “I regret my abortion.”

Religious groups such as the Office of Adult Faith Formation of the Archdiocese of New York, called on the faithful Tuesday to pray in anticipation of the bill’s passage.

“New Yorkers, join us tonight, it is important more than ever to pray as we expect that the Reproductive Health Act – Abortion Expansion will become law in the state of NY making late-term abortion legal in NY,” the group noted in a tweet

Priest Admits Urinating in Sacrificial Wine During Child Porn Sentencing

Reverend Father Faucher shared his fantasies with other pedophiles online. He spoke of wanting to sexually abuse altar boys and babies. Faucher recalled enjoying a video of a boy being beaten to death

A retired Catholic priest who was caught with thousands of pornographic images and videos of children and boasted about urinating in the wine he blessed for parishioners described himself as a “sick puppy” in court on Thursday before an Idaho judge sentenced him to 25 years in prison.

 The Reverend W. Thomas Faucher

Rev. W. Thomas Faucher, 73, pleaded guilty in September to five felony counts, and must register as a sex offender upon his release. He will serve the full 25 years, as the judge denied him the possibility of parole.

The sentencing “brings to a close one of the most difficult cases the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit has ever investigated,” said Attorney General Lawrence Wasden in a statement. “The nature of the evidence uncovered was extremely disturbing.”

Faucher Hearing
 Rev. W. Thomas on trial 

Investigators first began looking into Faucher late last year, after receiving an anonymous online tip about two sexual images involving children that had been sent from the priest’s email account.

According to evidence presented in court Thursday, police waded through hundreds of emails and online chats Faucher had with someone named “Bruno.” In them, the priest, who retired in 2015 after serving for decades at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Boise, was “actively seeking interests with gay men, satanic interests” and the rape and killing of minors.

More than 2,500 illegal files containing violent child pornography were recovered from Faucher’s computer, cell phone, and Dropbox account. In some videos, the child victims wept as they were abused.

The Idaho Statesmen reports police presented evidence Thursday from online interactions that showed Faucher had expressed a desire to have sex with boys, had “satanic desires,” and that “the thought of killing someone” was exciting to him.

Authorities also revealed the priest shared his fantasies with other pedophiles online. He spoke of wanting to sexually abuse altar boys and babies. In one exchange, he recalled enjoying a video of a boy being beaten to death.

“I was one really sick puppy,” Faucher said during his sentencing, according to the Statesmen. “I screwed up big time … I feel so much remorse and anger.”

Other evidence showed Faucher also used racist language in his chats, and once bragged about urinating into the sacrificial wine. Police also recovered images of Faucher urinating on a cross and a canon law book. Before being sentenced, Faucher argued he would be more useful as a free man.

“There are many people who will benefit if I am no longer in jail,” Faucher said, noting he wants to help survivors of childhood sexual abuse. “There are no people who will benefit if I am in jail or in prison.”

But Judge Jason Scott said he disagreed, citing the conclusion of analysts: that Faucher would likely re-offend if freed.

“This is the crime that has the potential for both immediate and long-lasting consequences,” Scott said, according to the Statesmen. “I think there is a legitimate risk to the community.”

The priest was initially charged with 21 counts of felony sexual exploitation of a child, one count of felony possession of a controlled substance for having LSD and two counts of misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance for having marijuana and ecstasy. He pleaded guilty to two counts of distribution of sexually exploitative material, two counts of possession of sexually exploitative materials and one count of drug possession.

“I am deeply sorry that I was and have been connected to that in any way,” Faucher told the judge.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Boise is moving to defrock Faucher, and allegedly had the man’s former residence exorcised before putting it on the market.

“The volumes of shocking information that the law enforcement investigation uncovered reveal the heinous nature of child pornography and the tragic impact upon its victims,” a statement from the diocese reads. “While we cannot begin to fathom what brought Faucher to the point that he was able to enter into this evil and dark world, we are thankful for the efforts of the law enforcement community in doing what it can to protect our children from these crimes.”

Detroit Pastor Murders Transgender Woman

Pastor kills transgender woman, goes to work then calls police one hour later!

PASTOR

A Detroit pastor was charged this week in the shooting death of a 36-year-old transgender woman found dead on the street Friday.

Albert Weathers, 46, was charged with open murder and use of a firearm after an investigation into the death of Kelly Stough, who was found by a police officer in the Palmer Park neighborhood, the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office said.

No motive was given, though prosecutors said they have evidence to be presented in court that Stough’s status as a transgender woman played a role in Weathers’ alleged actions.

Weathers is a pastor of the Logo’s Church, and until this week, was an employee at the Great Lakes Water Authority.

tgd

A spokesperson for the company confirmed to the Daily News that Weathers’ employment has since been terminated, and that he was off-duty at the time of the alleged shooting.

Weathers, who is reportedly married with children, allegedly left the scene of the crime, clocked in at work, and called police an hour later claiming he’d been the victim of an attempted robbery and had shot someone, according to local ABC affiliate WXYZ.

His bond is set at $1 million, though his lawyer David Cripps told the outlet that he will petition for a lower bond on the argument that his client has strong ties to his community.

Stough, meanwhile, was remembered by mother Jessica Chantae Stough as a beloved member of the community who was very loved, and hoped to one day work in the fashion industry as a designer and buyer.

“She has a family who cared about her, who loved her, and I want them to know that transgender ladies – expressly those of color – they’re not just throwaways,” she told NBC News. “People care about them.”

GoFundMe page launched in memory of Stough has raised more than $4,500.

As noted by NBC, Stough once weighed in on the police’s inadequate treatment of transgender people in Detroit in the wake of a 2015 murder of a local transgender woman.

“The police are unaware with our struggle, so they have no sympathy for us,” she told the Guardian, using her stage name Keanna Mattel. “Nobody ever asks, what happened to the person to get here? Unelss you’re just in the middle of the street, dead bleeding, you can flag down a police officer, and they’ll just ride past you like you never flagged them down.”

Fair Michigan Foundation President and Michigan Attorney General-elect Dana Nessel said in a statement that Stough’s murder “reflected the excessive brutality that members of Detroit’s transgender community constantly face.”

Pastor John Gray Buys His Wife A $200K Lamborghini Urus For Anniversary

One should know where their tithes and offerings are going to!

Two weeks after drawing praise for allowing congregants in need to take cash directly from his offering baskets, Pastor John Gray of Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina, is drawing flak for gifting his wife a Lamborghini Urus for their eighth wedding anniversary celebration that left her screaming on Saturday.

The Urus, with prices starting at about $200,000 in 2017, according to Fortune, has a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that produces 650 horsepower. It also boasts an automatic eight-speed transmission, can travel 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 189 mph. 

In a clip of the moment posted on Instagram by Sue Mayweather, Gray is shown leading his wife, Aventer, to the luxury vehicle and once she realizes what the gift is, she breaks out in screams. Her husband is seen holding her hand before declaring to the crowd “Lamborghini Urus.” Mayweather noted that Gray’s wife also gifted him the “‘green box’ Rolex,” a term used to describe the Rolex Explorer II which comes with a price of approximately $8,000. 

In an Instagram post on Sunday, singer Tyrese who attended the celebration wrote: “Honored to have been there to see and witness every moment…..Pastor John Gray and his beautiful First Lady renewed their vows after 8 years of marriage….fairy tail grace and magic….Honored and honored again to have been in the room and apart of you guys magical evening. From the #Gibsons to the #Grays May God KEEP you covered in his blood…//Amen!!!”

While some people praised the preacher for splurging on his wife, others were angry that a preacher would indulge in such display of opulence. Modesty should be demonstrated from ANYONE claiming to be a pastor and I believe that the only reason he allowed his congregation to “take as they needed” from the offering prior to this big splurge was to lighten the blow. Oh, he’ll say that it didn’t come from the tithes and offerings that it came from some book sales or other business that he is engaged in outside of his church business. The structural church is a very lucrative business indeed!
