Virginia Students Show Homophobic Preacher The True Meaning Of Christianity - VIDEO

Ross jackson

Reminding the world that not all Christians are focused solely on hatred for their fellow man, a homophobic preacher who appeared on the campus of James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia earlier this week had his hateful speech drowned out by students with a Christian message of peace and love, reports Huffington Post.

According to witnesses, Ross Jackson, who is the founder of Revival Mission Ministries, launched into sermons condemning a variety of "sinful acts," including homosexuality, drinking alcohol and listening to country music.

He is also reported to have yelled “all homos are going to hell” at a crowd gathered at one of the talks.

However, students at the university were not willing to allow Jackson to get away with his hate-speech. Student-journalist Lauren Hunt live-tweeted the preacher’s appearances, noting his arrogant approach to student opinions.  Other attendees brought rainbow-colored flags and protest signs, while one group of students stood in full view of Jackson to sing Christian hymns about love, drowning out his words.

According to Hunt, Jackson called the singers and guitar player a "pervert leader and his band of followers." However, Hunt tweeted “the students' singing has overpowered the voice of the preacher.”

According to the university’s newspaper, Jackson was forced to leave the college campus Wednesday after he was issued a police summons for assault and battery, as well as a no trespass notice.

Julia Volkova From T.A.T.U 'Would Condemn' Gay Son, Is OK With Lesbians - VIDEO

Tatu

Julia Volkova, one half of fake lesbian music duo t.A.T.u, said in a recent interview on Russian television that she “would condemn” her son if he came out, reports Pink News.

Volkova, who has previously spoken out against Russia’s anti-gay laws, added that although she could not accept a gay son, women should have the “freedom” to be gay:

“I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of… I won’t accept a gay son.”

Confirming that she only thinks the “freedom” of being gay should apply to women, Volkova explains that real freedom for a man is to have sex with as many women as he can:

“In our time, there is a very large number of frivolous girls...a man can be with a large number of these girls. This is freedom for men. And a man has no right to be a fag.”

Volkova goes to on tell the audience that she in fact has “many gay friends" - and that their sexuality is clearly a choice, just like being a thief, a drug addict or a murderer:

“If you choose out of [being a murderer, a thief, a drug addict or a homosexual], being gay [is] a better than the rest.”

Volkova would know all about choice as her bandmate Lena Katina previously confirmed she is straight, and that the band’s lesbian image is an “act”.

Katina, meanwhile, took to Facebook yesterday to weigh in on the controversy:

Hey, all! I am seeing some comments lately regarding my position about LGBT and my religion. I can say one thing: God is teaching us to live in love, to be tolerant and not to judge other people! And I do so! Love is love and it is a wonderful feeling! I think everybody should be free to love who they love and be with who they want to spend their life with! Xoxo

Pope Francis To Exile Anti-Gay Conservative Cardinal Raymond Burke - VIDEO

Cardinal Raymond Burke

Pope Francis may be about to remove homophobe Cardinal Raymond Burke from his position as head of the Vatican’s “Supreme Court,” relegating him to a largely ceremonial role as head of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, reports conservative news outlet Breitbart.

Burke has been very forthcoming on his feelings regarding the rights and wrongs of discrimination.  In 2010, he announced that while racism is unacceptable, discrimination against LGBT people is “perfectly just and good.”

Waxing lyrical on his pro-discrimination stance, Burke went on to explain to gay people what they have been doing wrong for all these years:

“Sexual acts between persons of the same sex are intrinsically evil, are against nature itself...its simply announcing the truth, helping people to discriminate right from wrong in terms of their own activities.”

In the past, Burke announced that former presidential candidate John Kerry would not be allowed to receive communion for his pro-abortion stance and excommunicated two women who claimed to have been ordained by a third woman claiming to be a Bishop of the Roman Catholic Church.

The new role would see Burke removed from the Roman Curia, the body of Vatican-based Cardinals who are close advisers to the Pope.

Earlier this year, Pope Francis suggested that the Catholic Church might consider supporting same-sex civil unions

Is Egypt Surveilling Social Media To Hunt Down Gay People? - VIDEO

Egyptian surveillance

Concerns are mounting in Egypt that authorities will use new online monitoring software to hunt down LGBT people, reports Buzzfeed.

Earlier this month, Egyptian authorities arrested nine men for "debauchery" but later concluded that "the men tested negative for homosexuality."

Using U.S. technology, Egypt is now monitoring online communications, giving the government an unprecedented ability to comb through data from Skype, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, WhatsApp and Viber.

In recent weeks, Egypt’s LGBT community has issued warnings to avoid using Grindr after rumors spread that officials were using the app to arrest gay men.

Although Egyptian officials have said their monitoring of online activity will focus on preventing terrorist attacks, one Interior Ministry official said the current mandate was “much broader”:

“We are looking at any conversation, any interaction, we might find worrying or would want to keep a closer eye on. We are watching conversations between Islamists, or those who discuss Islamism. We are watching communities, which we consider at risk.”

EgyptThe official went on to say that those taking part in “debauchery” or “homosexual acts” would be watched “for the protection of Egypt.”

He added that although he wasn’t familiar with Grindr, there were “dozens of Facebook groups” used by the LGBT community that are being watched.

Gen. Hany Abd el Lateef, a spokesman for Egypt’s Interior Ministry, denied that the government plans to monitor citizens’ private lives.  

However, a copy of the tenders issued by the Interior Ministry which specifies the type of online communications it will be searching for suggests otherwise.  The list includes:

  • Blasphemy and skepticism in religions
  • Spreading of rumors and intentional twisting of facts
  • Sarcasm
  • Pornography, looseness, and lack of morality

Providing the service to the Egyptian government, See Egypt is the sister company of the U.S.-based Blue Coat.

Ali Miniesy, the CEO of See Egypt, said that the company had been contracted to provide Egypt’s State Security with the system, and to teach officials how to comb through data gathered from email accounts and social media sites.

He added that although the software can be used to penetrate social media and other software, it is a system similar to that used by most Western governments, including the United States.

According to Eva Blum-Dumontet, an advocacy officer with the U.K.-based NGO Privacy International:

“This new software makes it very easy to target anyone, en masse. The user simply says, ‘I want to look for atheists, or homosexuals,’ and the company gets all the data. It’s extremely easy.

"There is a difference between what you do on social media and what you do in the real world. The concern is that people who are not necessarily our protesting would suddenly be on the radar of the Egyptian authorities because they liked a status on Facebook or retweeted something.”

Egyptian Human Rights groups filed a lawsuit on June 17 alleging that the system used by Egypt “threatens private life and public freedom.”  However, the lawsuit could take years to work its way through the courts, and in the meantime the See Egypt technology will continue to be used.

Monsignor Charles Pope Explains Why Everything Gay Is Just Wrong - VIDEO

CHARLES POPE

Writing for the Archdiocese of Washington, Monsignor Charles Pope has finally and categorically explained exactly what is wrong with gay people.

Earlier this month, Pope called for an end to the New York St. Patrick's Day parade because it has now been hijacked by "those who think anal sex is to be celebrated as an expression of love." 

According to Pope, “an increasingly nationwide effort to make homosexual acts something to celebrate has gained great ground and sowed serious confusion even among those who describe themselves as Christian and Catholic.”

Bible-vs-homosexualityProviding his learned instruction on “what Scripture plainly teaches and why the Church cannot affirm” homosexuality, Pope explains:

“Sexual acts are, by their very nature, ordered to procreation and to the bonding of the mother and father who will raise the children conceived by their sexual intimacy. These ends or purposes have been intrinsically joined by God, and we are not to separate what what God has joined.”

“The man is for the woman, and the woman is for the man. The man is not for the man, nor the woman for the woman. This is plainly set forth in the design of our bodies.”

“What some call intolerance or 'hatred' is, for us who believe, rather, a principled stance wherein we see ourselves as unable to overrule the clear and unambiguous teaching of Holy Scripture”

Don’t worry though, Pope still respects you:

“We do not detest those of same sex-attraction, but we as a Church owe them the same truth we have always proclaimed as coming from God, and out of respect we must hold them to the same standards of chastity by which all must live.”

SignDespite the obvious love for the sinner, you can forget about marriage - it’s just not for you:

“Sadly those of unalterable same-sex attraction have no recourse to marriage. But all of us bear burdens of one sort or another, and not everyone is able to partake in everything life offers. For the sake of holiness, heroic witness is necessary, and many of those with same-sex attraction do live celibately and give admirable witness to the power of grace.”

If you’re still confused, Pope goes on to provide “some selections from Sacred Scripture that clearly teach against homosexual acts,” including the much cited destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

And for anyone ridiculous enough to suggest that Jesus never once mentions homosexuality in the bible, Pope reminds us that just because it’s not mentioned doesn’t mean everyone didn’t know it was just wrong: “It was not a disputed matter among the Jews to whom he preached.”

The response on Twitter has been mainly positive although Brian326, who was less than happy with Pope's position, suggested that the cleric should mind his own business.

 Once you’ve been convinced of your sin, Pope also provides a link to Catholic “ex-gay” / abstinence group Courage and even provides some testimonial videos which you can watch - if you can stomach it - AFTER THE JUMP...

Republican Jacob Dorsey Drops Out Of Race For Wisconsin Assembly Following More Homophobic, Racist Comments

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d06a5b1b970c-800wi

Jacob Dorsey, the 19-year-old Republican candidate for Wisconsin State Assembly, has dropped out of the race after racist and homophobic comments he had made on Twitter and YouTube surfaced, reports LGBTQ Nation.

On Monday we reported that Dorsey was facing a backlash following a tweet sent last December that contained a homophobic slur.

The tweet, which has since been deleted, read: Acob dorsey yourtube comment1

“10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejects #Utah’s request to stop same-sex marriages.” fags need 2 leave my favorite state alone.”

In a statement, Dorsey had apologised for the tweet and said “I regret using unacceptable and hurtful language on social media last year. I am a staunch supporter of traditional marriage, but the language I used is not in keeping with my character, family values and Christian upbringing.”

However, yesterday NOManiacs, a group that exposes hate speech, reported that Dorsey had posted further racist and homophobic comments on YouTube. The comments were posted to Dorsey’s since deleted “jdorsey1995″ YouTube channel, the same account name he used for Twitter and Instagram.

Dorsey - a former intern with Citizens for Decency who has been endorsed by Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Right To Life - yesterday told the The Janesville Gazette that he had “decided to withdraw from the race due to insensitive remarks that have surfaced from years past. This race has been extremely hard on my family and myself.” Acob dorsey yourtube comment2

On Dorsey's resignation, NOManiacs said:

"We hope Jacob Dorsey truly regrets his posts. America needs leaders at all levels who champion diversity and are committed to represent all. Dorsey was not yet that person."
