The Honduran Caravan Splinters, but Thousands Vow to Reach U.S.

A better solution for the Honduran caravan (which reached Mexico’s southern border on Friday) is going to be required and the President is running out of time. The reports coming out regarding the horde of migrants over the past 48 hours has been nothing short of frenetic. We’ve seen headlines claiming that Mexico had stopped them and the caravan was turning back. Other reports indicated that the migrants were overwhelming the border forces and swarming into Mexico.

Christian Bakers Win ‘Gay Cake’ Case at UK Supreme Court

Belfast High Court ruled in 2015 that husband and wife Daniel and Amy McArthur, who run the bakery, had discriminated against a customer when they refused to bake him a cake with the slogan “Support Gay Marriage” on it. They were ordered to pay £500 in damages.  The Belfast Court of Appeals rejected their appeal.  The couple then took their appeal to the UK Supreme Court, which ruled in their favor.  In 2016, the couple received some unlikely support from prominent gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell, who described the case against the couple as a “step too far”.   Read more:

The New Taboo: More People Regret Sex Change and Want to ‘Detransition’, Surgeon Says

Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic says more people, particularly transgender women over 30, are asking for reversal surgery, yet their regrets find little sympathy.  Those wishing the reversal, Djordjevic says, have spoken to him about crippling levels of depression following their transition and in some cases even contemplated suicide. “It can be a real disaster to hear these stories,” says the 52-year-old.

Pope Francis’ Unofficial Spokesman Claims ‘McCarrick Did Not Have Homosexual Relations’

One of Pope Francis’ “unofficial spokespeople” claimed in stunning remarks about Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s alleged sexual abuse of seminarians that the root problem is not homosexuality but clericalism, and also asserted that “No, McCarrick did not have homosexual relations.”  Swiss Bishop Marian Eleganti, however, made it clear that such a denial of the homosexual component in the abuse crisis “is itself a cover-up.  No one denies that clericalism plays a role, but nevertheless it proven that the abusers are mainly homosexual. The silencing of this fact is an additional form of cover-up.”  Read more:
