Kathy Zhu #racist #wingnut cnn.com

The woman stripped of her Miss Michigan 2019 tiara for tweets that the pageant's organizers found offensive said Monday she stands by everything she says on social media, despite having apparently deleted one of the posts in question.

Kathy Zhu, a University of Michigan student and vice president of the school's College Republicans, had her crown taken the day after it was placed on her head last week.

The beauty queen posted a chain of text messages that she said she had exchanged with Laurie DeJack, state director for Miss World America Michigan.
In them, DeJack says she needs to talk to Zhu and instructs her not to post anything to social media.

"Do not go out representing Michigan World America. We do have a problem," one text says.

Zhu pleads for more information. Eventually, Zhu is told her social posts are problematic. She is provided a link to a post in which she wrote, "Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others."

"How is that racist?" Zhu asks before texting, "It's statistics" and "Didn't know statistics were racist."

Despite remaining steadfast in defending the views she shares in her posts, one post appears to have been deleted. The Orlando Sentinel, however, published a screengrab of the February 2018 tweet, posted when Zhu was a freshman at the University of Central Florida, before she transferred to Michigan.

"There's a 'try a hijab on' booth at my college campus. So you're telling me that it's now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?" the tweet reads.

Jussie Smollet #fundie cnn.com

Chicago (CNN) -- Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation tell CNN that Chicago Police believe actor Jussie Smollet paid two men to orchestrate an assault on him that he reported late last month.

The men, who are brothers, were arrested Wednesday but released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of "new evidence."

The sources told CNN the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

Smollett told authorities he was attacked early January 29 by two men who were "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs." He said one attacker put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

The sources told CNN there are records that show the two brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett's neck at a hardware store in Chicago.

CNN's attempts Saturday to reach both Smollett's representative and attorney were unsuccessful.

Smollett identifies as gay and since 2015 has played the gay character of Jamal on the Fox TV drama "Empire."

What happened

According to Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, the actor told detectives he was attacked by two men near the lower entrance of a Lowe's store in Chicago. Police were told the two men yelled "'Empire' fa***t" and "'Empire' n***er'" while striking him.

The day after the incident, police released surveillance images that showed two silhouetted individuals walking down a sidewalk, and police said they were wanted for questioning.

The two men were arrested Wednesday. Police on Friday said the men were being viewed as "potential suspects" and that detectives had "probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime."

But by Friday night they had been released, Guglielmi said, "due to new evidence as a result of today's investigations."

"And detectives have additional investigative work to complete," he added.

One of the men has appeared on "Empire," Guglielmi said. A police source also told CNN on Friday night that the men had a previous affiliation with Smollett, but did not provide additional details.

Jesse Duplantis #fundie cnn.com

A prosperity gospel televangelist from Louisiana says Jesus has asked him to buy a new private jet. And wouldn't you know it, Jesus has real nice taste in planes.

Jesse Duplantis, leader of Jesse Duplantis Ministries and the owner of three other private jets, is asking his followers to chip in so his ministry can purchase a brand new Dassault Falcon 7X, which runs about $54 million.

In a video recently published on his website, Duplantis says the planes get him closer to the Lord -- both literally and figuratively -- and he had a divine conversation in which Jesus asked for the new aircraft by name.

"It was one of the greatest statements the Lord ever told me, he said, 'Jesse do you want to come up where I'm at?'" the minister says. "'I want you to bleed me for a Falcon 7X.'"
By "bleed," Duplantis -- er, Jesus -- apparently meant "ask for donations."

Duplantis goes on to tell his followers that jets, especially nice ones with good fuel efficiency, allow him and his ministries to reach more people around the world. And no, it wouldn't technically be his, it would be the ministry's.

"All it's gonna do is it's going to touch people, it's going to reach people, it's going to change lives one soul at a time," Duplantis said of the aircraft.

"I really believe that if Jesus was physically on the earth today, he wouldn't be riding a donkey," he added with a chuckle.

As he walked through the history of why marijuana was prohibited, he said: "One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, was that the African-Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst off to those drugs just because of their character makeup, their genetics and that."

(CNN)Police are guarding Jewish centers across the Swedish city of Gothenberg following an arson attack on a synagogue there, police said.
Three men, all in their twenties, have been detained for questioning in relation to the Saturday night incident, police said.
Spokeswoman Ulla Brehm said that police received reports shortly after 10 p.m. local time that burning objects had been thrown into the yard of the synagogue, causing a fire. Brehm said approximately 10 people dressed in black were seen running away after throwing the objects.
No one was injured in the attack and the projectiles thrown did not make it inside the synagogue. Police are not describing the objects as Molotov cocktails.

Authorities used surveillance camera footage to identify the three men who are being questioned. The police are not reporting their nationalities.
A number of people were attending an event at the adjacent Jewish community center when the attack happened. Nobody at the community center was hurt and all the event participants were escorted safely off the premises.

A Canadian federal judge who asked a woman in a rape trial why she couldn't keep her knees together resigned Thursday after a disciplinary council recommended he be removed from the bench.

Camp argued that "unconscious bias" was to blame for the offending comments. In addition to asking the 19-year-old why she didn't keep her knees together to fend off her alleged attacker, he also asked her why she didn't "skew her pelvis" to avoid penetration.

Camp made the comments as a provincial court judge in a 2014 trial. He became a federal judge in 2015.
He also remarked that, "Some sex and pain sometimes go together ... that's not necessarily a bad thing."

(CNN) — A prominent Jordanian writer facing charges for sharing a "blasphemous" anti-ISIS cartoon that outraged Muslim groups was fatally shot in Amman on Sunday, state news agency Petra reported.

Nahed Hattar, a member of the country's Christian minority, was shot three times outside a courthouse in the capital where charges against him were being heard.
Hattar, a political commentator and columnist, was remanded in custody last month after sharing a controversial cartoon on Facebook that sparked anger from Muslim groups.

Amman Governor Khaled Abu Zeid ordered that the writer be held for the "blasphemous" Facebook post, Petra reported.

Hattar was charged with the crimes of insulting religion, and inciting "sectarian strife and racism," for having posted the image, which was deemed as "abusive to the divine entity," Petra reported at the time.

Jabari Dean #racist cnn.com

A 21-year-old man was arrested Monday, accused of threatening to kill students and staff at the University of Chicago in an apparent attempt to avenge the death of Laquan McDonald, authorities said.

Jabari Dean, 21 was arrested without incident. He is expected to appear in court later in the day.

According to a criminal complaint, Dean posted a threat on social media over the Thanksgiving weekend.

"This is my only warning. At 10 a.m. on Monday mourning (sic) I am going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with a M-4 Carbine and 2 Desert Eagles all fully loaded. I will execute aproximately (sic) 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time (sic) Mcdonald (sic) was killed.

"I then will die killing any number of white policemen that I can in the process. This is not a joke. I am to do my part to rid the world of the white devils. I expect you to do the same," the post read.

"Mcdonald" appears to refer to Laquan McDonald, 17, who was shot 16 times and killed last year by Officer Jason Van Dyke. A judge Monday set a $1.5 million bond for the officer, who has been charged with first-degree murder. Van Dyke posted bond later in the day, authorities said.

The shooting occurred in October 2014, but dashcam video of the incident was recently released, sparking outrage and triggering protests.

Rep. Virgil Goode #fundie cnn.com

A Virginia congressman will not apologize for writing that without immigration overhaul "there will be many more Muslims elected to office demanding the use of the Quran," his spokesman said.

Republican Rep. Virgil Goode's letter to constituents also warns that without immigration overhaul "we will have many more Muslims in the United States."

Spokesman Linwood Duncan said Goode's letter was written in response to complaints his office received about Minnesota Rep.-elect Keith Ellison's request to be sworn in using the Quran.

Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to Congress.

Goode's office released the letter to CNN Wednesday.

In it, Goode wrote, "When I raise my hand to take the oath on Swearing In Day, I will have the Bible in my other hand. I do not subscribe to using the Quran in any way.

"The Muslim representative from Minnesota was elected by the voters of that district and if American citizens don't wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Quran.

"We need to stop illegal immigration totally and reduce legal immigration and end the diversity visas policy pushed hard by President Clinton and allowing many persons from the Middle East to come to this country.

"I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America and to prevent our resources from being swamped."

He added, "The Ten Commandments and 'In God We Trust' are on the wall in my office. A Muslim student came by the office and asked why I did not have anything on my wall about the Quran.

"My response was clear, 'As long as I have the honor of representing the citizens of the 5th District of Virginia in the United States House of Representatives, the Quran is not going to be on the wall of my office.' "

And you must know Jesus criticized the Jews who ran religion like a private enterprise; so why should anyone else not have that `right` two thousand years later?

Taylor #fundie cnn.com

The general rule is that discrimination is allowed. We discriminate every day when we change TV channels, buy one brand of soap over another at the supermarket, or choose friends. Certain exceptions to the general rule of allowing discrimination have been made. One exception is for "immutable characteristics", for characteristics one cannot change, like race or gender. Another exception has been made for religion since our country was founded on religious freedom and it is enshrined in our Constitution.

Homosexuality is not immutable like race or gender. Homosexuality is, by definition, a behavior. You are not a homosexual until you engage in a homosexual act. Liberals have created the term "sexual orientation" which is a meaningless phrase, a political euphemism, as if one's sexual urge is fixed at birth, like a board game wheel, in any one direction: a man, a woman, a dog, a vase. The best science can say at the moment is that a propensity for homosexuality is genetically inherited by some people. Then, environmental factors, such as overpopulation, work to catalyze homosexual behavior.

People should be judged by their behavior. Therefore, discrimination against homosexuality should be allowed. Churches should be allowed to discourage it. Children should not be taught it. Private groups and individuals should be allowed to exclude people who engage in that behavior. However, I believe it is morally wrong to discriminate against any individual based on that individual's group classification. This applies to homosexuals, cops, or even yuppies. But this would not make a practical law.

The purpose of marriage is procreation (but, it is not a requirement). Homosexuals cannot procreate

I think a line should be drawn somewhere also. I do not interfere with homosexual couples but i believe in the Bible. God created man and woman to marry. Man and Woman. Thats all there is to it. The U.S. is based off of the Bible and I am tired of seeing people take it out of the schools, taking the ten commandments out of our buildings and making up their own rules about marriage. I dont care if they are together because they will have to settle that with God when the time comes, but they do not need to be married. And if they do get married they don't need to do it in a church, near a church, with a preacher, or with a Bible- in fact, it shouldnt even be called marriage. God has made it clear that he wants nothing to do with that. So if you want to get married to the same sex and you dont believe in God then dont get married, just be together and leave it alone. The Bible was once America's Bible because our principles were first based upon the Bible at least until now- the phrase "separation of church and state" is not in the constitution so i wish people would stop saying that it is and state what it actually says.I am not saying that you have to believe in the Bible or God. It just makes sense, if you want to get married to someone of the same sex. Dont. it is a contradictory act.

His sudden lack of faith, he said, cost him his military career and put his life at risk. Hall said his life was threatened by other troops and the military assigned a full-time bodyguard to protect him out of fear for his safety.

In March, Hall filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Defense and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, among others. In the suit, Hall claims his rights to religious freedom under the First Amendment were violated and suggests that the United States military has become a Christian organization.

"I think it's utterly and totally wrong. Unconstitutional," Hall said.

Hall said there is a pattern of discrimination against non-Christians in the military.

Two years ago on Thanksgiving Day, after refusing to pray at his table, Hall said he was told to go sit somewhere else. In another incident, when he was nearly killed during an attack on his Humvee, he said another soldier asked him, "Do you believe in Jesus now?"

The victims testified that they were beaten with brooms and umbrellas, slashed with knives, and forced to climb stairs and take freezing showers as punishment. One victim was forced to eat dozens of chili peppers and then was forced to eat her own vomit when she couldn't keep the peppers down, prosecutors said.

"I just want to say that I love my children very much," the defendant told the court as two of her grown children looked on. "I was brought to this Earth to help people who are in need."

[A board discussing the trend of women sacrificing their careers to augment their husband's career.]

Oh, give me a break with this feministic garbage. Not only are people now trying to change what marriage means (into homosexual blasphemy) but now it's supposedly wrong to ask the woman to change her name. The only reason people continue to write these absurdly edgy articles is to win support for those who (unfortunately) HAVE been abused by the system of allowing the man to protect.

You cannot argue that women and men are wired differently. I won't bring the religious argument into this because I know most are too blind to see truth, but you cannot make an argument against physical, psychological and emotional differences between general makeup of men and women. It's not that men think they are better any more (and if they do think they are better than women, they are wrong!) however, men have the role of provider and protector. Why are women running from what is such a glorious role of raising children and preparing a home!? Any man who loves his wife is not going to let that be compared as a lesser role than his, just different.

Give me a break with this "appeal to the [blind and ignorant] masses" crap.

(The whole article warrants a read, but this sample should whet your appetite.)

"I think he's deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to fit his own world view, his own confused theology," Dobson said, adding that Obama is "dragging biblical understanding through the gutter."

[Regarding the death of George Carlin]

"Finally, another useless, unmoral, nasty human removed from this earth. He did nothing but spew his grotesque language and try to convince the world that nothing was wrong with it. He's now paying the price for his chosen lifestyle in Hell. A very strong statement I know and I'm not a religious freak, just a mother who is tired of people like him trying to turn this country's morals into garbage. When in fact it is HE who was garbage not those of us who actually HAVE morals and don't condone the language and lifestyle he spoke of."

Sergio Casian Aguilar #fundie cnn.com

TURLOCK, California (AP) -- Police on Monday identified a man who was fatally shot by an officer for allegedly refusing to stop beating a toddler to death along a remote road.

Sergio Casian Aguilar, 27, parked his truck on an unlit road Saturday night, removed a 2-year-old boy from his car seat and proceeded to stomp, kick and punch the boy to death, authorities said. The boy was unrecognizable when he was pronounced dead at Emanuel Medical Center, the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department said.

Authorities have not released the boy's name but say they believe he was Aguilar's son.

He said Aguilar had a "total hollowness in his eyes" and talked calmly of the boy being filled with "demons."
