A LGBTQ pride flag replaced five flags representing the branches of the United States military to celebrate “Gay Pride” month at a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Indiana earlier this week. Some residents and veterans weren’t happy seeing the pride flag up and particularly all the military flags taken down. “The Army is the Army, the Navy is the Navy … the gay flag isn’t supposed to be there,” said veteran Robert Pio. The slighting of the U.S. military was apparently too much for one observer, who lowered the flag and then drove off with it, after which officials at Fort Wayne’s VA Hospital got the message and decided to put the military flags back up. As for the individual who swiped the pride flag, Pio told WPTA: “he’s right … I’d have done the same thing.”

The media group has its headquarters in the UK, defines itself as a Christian ministry, and broadcasts in Spain through satellite since 2012. The National Commission of Markets and Competition (CNMC, in Spanish) has fined the Revelation TV 6,000 Euro. The fine comes after an individual complained to the state agency about one of the programs in September 2017. Comments on one of Revelation TV’s shows that day “could be considered as threatening to the dignity of the homosexual and transgender group, although there was no manifest incitation to hate against these groups by the channel that owns the program,” the official CNMC statement says.

A video recorded for “Pride Month” is raising concern as it features a Canadian television host talking to young children about “gay pride” and explaining to the boys and girls that she herself questioned her sexuality as a child in liking a female actress, who she watched nude in a film “several times.” The video, which has been viewed over two million times features MTV, CTV and CW host Jessi Cruickshank. “Happy pride everybody!” she exclaims to the children, waving a rainbow flag. “Who here knows what gay pride means?” “It means where all the gay people, lesbian, transgender, bisexual people gather up and celebrate,” one little girl responds. “That’s absolutely right. It’s a celebration of sexual diversity,” Cruickshank states, the room decorated with balloons that include rainbows and kid-friendly smileys. She then tells the children that while she is not homosexual herself, she considers herself an ally. “Are you gay allies?” Cruickshank asks. “Definitely,” one girl replies, and the others also answer in the affirmative.

In an unprecedented blow against religious freedom in Canada, the court ruled that it was “proportionate and reasonable” for the law societies of British Columbia and Ontario to refuse accreditation to future Trinity Western University students because the proposed Christian law school’s “community covenant” would discriminate against LGBTQ people. The ruling means that future grads from Trinity Western University’s law school — if the school, in fact, opens — will not be able to practice law in Ontario and B.C. TWU, a private Christian college associated with the Evangelical Free Church, requires students to sign a commitment to refrain from any sexual activity “that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.” Read more: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/canadas-top-court-rules-religious-freedom
A group of tech giants in Silicon Valley are working with and consulting with the Southern Poverty Law Center in policing their various platforms. The SPLC claims to fight hate and bigotry and to seek justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. By that they don’t mean just anyone who is oppressed but only the liberal-approved minority grievance groups whose cause supports. The U.S. media treats the SPLC like it is handing down gospel truth. Journalists are supposedly taught to have two or more sources for its stories, but when it comes to the SPLC, the media takes the group’s word without any attempt to double check its proclamations.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley stated: “It is essential that this council address its chronic anti-Israel bias if it is to have any credibility. She asserted that the U.S. was “looking carefully at this council and our participation in it.” She noted the “rapidly deteriorating human rights situation” in Venezuela, and said it was “hard to accept that this Council has never considered a resolution on Venezuela, and yet it adopted five biased resolutions in March against a single country, Israel.” Vice-President Pence added: “The Human Rights Council doesn’t deserve its name. Today, the United Nations Human Rights Council actually attracts and welcomes many of the worst human rights violators in the world. A clear majority of the Human Rights Council’s members fail to meet even the most basic human rights standards.”

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a ban on childlike sex robots by voice vote. “These dolls can be programmed to simulate rape,” said Representative Bob Goodlatte. “The very thought makes me nauseous.” The sex robots are made to look and respond like children. The target customers, of course, are pedophiles. The Fresno Bee quotes Rep. Goodlatte, who explains that the proposal says the obscene dolls and robots “are customizable or morphable and can resemble actual children. … The dolls and robots normalize submissiveness and normalize sex between adults and minors.” Some argue that sex robots might offer pedophiles a way of releasing their perversion without harming real children. But then imagine the inevitable: those users becoming less and less satisfied with what are in effect fancy sex dolls.
