Various Facebook Posters #fundie dailymail.co.uk

"Secret Facebook group 'Bad Girls Advice' brags about acts of domestic violence
Women boasted about hitting men with cars and stabbing them in the genitals
Facebook thread was shared by a domestic violence support group on Thursday
Group administrator insisted to Daily Mail Australia the group is misrepresented

This is the secret Facebook group where women brag about the various ways they have physically abused their partners.
Graphic screenshots from the Bad Girls Advice Facebook page emerged on Thursday when a domestic violence support group publicly shared them.
The posts show women discussing domestic violence situations in detail after one member asked the other women what the most violent act committed against their partner was.

'In a mad ass rage at my partner. Just want to punch him in the c*ck and stab him in the leg with a fork. Bad b****es, I want to know what is the craziest thing you've done in a fit of rage?' one woman posted on Friday.
The post garnered hundreds of likes and prompted a colourful discussion about domestic violence.

'Threw a chair at him through a glass door. Door smashed and cut him the f*** up. Needless to say he didn't smart mouth me again,' one said.
The post and the ensuing comments were shared with all 173 thousand members of Bad Girls Advice.

'Stabbed with a fork, reversed over him in a car, threw him out of the car, punched him in the nose, threw bowls, remotes or whatever at his head,' another said.
One woman admitted to hitting her partner with her car 'all because it was Halloween and I felt bad that I didn't buy lollies for the kids'.
Another member also admitted to ramming her partner with a car.
'Hit him with my car then made him pay for the damage,' she said.
Her comment was praised by other members who claimed it was their 'favourite'.

Another member said she made an expensive mistake when she decided to throw a laptop at a man's head.
'(I) didn't realise it wasn't his and had to replace the f***ing piece of sh**,' she said.
'It was worth it.'
One contributor maintained what she did was 'funny'.
'Stabbed them in the c*** with a metal nail file sh** it was funny,' she said.
'Bit him on the back of his neck until I heard crunch and felt blood. Still has the scar lol,' another said.

The confronting conversation was shared on Thursday by domestic violence support group the Black Ribbon Foundation Australia.
'And people wonder why we have a problem in this country,' it said.
'Ask yourself, had it been female victims being spoken about, would they have been so blasé?'
A Bad Girls Advice group administrator, who asked to remain anonymous, told Daily Mail Australia the group was misrepresented.
'BGA is about so many things that are amazing, and this thread, which a fraction of women wrote on, does not define who we are,' she said on Friday.

'We help hundreds of women with a lot of different things and we absolutely do not and never have condoned domestic violence against any gender.
'The vast majority of us are just women who need a space to express and explore our sexuality and talk about issues that are taboo in public.'
The Queensland woman said the controversial post was removed the day after it was published.
'The thread was deleted Saturday morning once all the admin were aware of it – we decided as a whole that it absolutely was against our group's morals,' she said.

The administrator said Bad Girls Advice helped thousands of women and served a positive purpose.
'We have talked over 25 women out of suicide, helped hundreds of women find temporary homes and supplies after breaking away from domestic violence,' she said.
'We aren't going to sit here and say we are saints. But we help in a huge way with the heavy stuff that a lot of people can't talk about.'
She told Daily Mail Australia all women who contributed to the controversial post have since been removed from the group.

Fraser Anning #fundie dailymail.co.uk

New Zealand Mosque Shooting

Speaking following reports of multiple shootings at two Mosques in New Zealand earlier today, Senator Fraser Anning has responded with strong condemnation.

'I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community, and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman,' he said.

'However, whilst this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence.

'As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today's shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views but this is all cliched nonsense.

'The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.

'Let us be clear, while Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators. World-wide, Muslims are killing people in the name of their faith on an industrial scale.

'The entire religion of Islam is simply the violent ideology of a sixth century despot masquerading as a religious leader, which justifies endless war against anyone who opposes it and calls for the murder of unbelievers and apostates.

'The truth is that Islam is not like any other faith. It is the religious equivalent of fascism. And just because the followers of this savage belief were not the killers in this instance, does not make them blameless.

'As we read in Matthew 26:52, 'all they that take the sword, shall perish by the sword' and those who follow a violent religion that calls on them to murder us, cannot be too surprised when someone takes them at their word and responds in kind,' Senator Anning concluded.

Saudi government, Google, Apple #fundie dailymail.co.uk

Women-tracking app that lets Saudi Arabian men track their wives is ALLOWED on Apple and Google stores and has been downloaded more than one million times

Apple and Google are accused of helping 'enforce gender apartheid'
The iTunes and Google Play stores freely host an app called Absher, run by the Saudi government that tracks women and stops them leaving the country
Absher allows men in Saudi Arabia to track and control where women travel
Under Saudi law, every woman has a legal 'guardian' who can restrict her travel to specific airports and routes, receiving alerts when they cross borders

Apple and Google are being accused of helping to 'enforce gender apartheid' in Saudi Arabia by offering an app on their platforms which allows men to track women and stop them leaving the country.

Absher is available on both the Google Play and iTunes store and is an app developed by the Saudi government which allows men to specify when and how women can cross Saudi borders - and will even alert them if they do so.

Absher's travel 'featured' have been identified by activists and refugees as a major factor in the continued difficulty women have leaving Saudi Arabia.

The app allows for guardians to state where women can go, for how long and which airports they're allowed to go to.

Alerts are triggered if a woman leaves a certain area. It is one of the main reasons women have difficulty trying to flee Saudi Arabia and often get caught.

Absher tips off male guardians and the fleeing women can be apprehended whil still withint the country.

On another page the guardian can see easily which permissions are active and change them if needed.

Yasmine Mohammed, ex-Muslim activist who campaigns and writes on women's rights said there was a tragedy in the way Apple and Google were facilitating 'archaic misogyny.'

'What irony. In the West these technologies are used to improve lives and in Saudi Arabia they're used to enforce gender apartheid.'

Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have expressed concern about the app which have been downloaded from the Google and Apple stores more than one millions times.

'Apple and Google have rules against apps that facilitate threats and harassment. Apps like this one can facilitate human rights abuses, including discrimination against women,' Rothna Begum a Middle East researcher for Human Rights Watch told The Insider.

'In evaluating whether an app should be allowed, app store providers should be considering the broader context of the purpose of the app, how it is used in practice, and whether it facilitates serious abuses. Companies should apply extra scrutiny to government-operated apps in particular.'

'Even though the app is more general purpose, the government could simply remove the guardianship tracking functionality from the app, and continue to offer the rest of the functionality.'

Similarly, Dana Ahmed, a Saudi Arabia researcher for Amnesty International similarly condemned the app saying, 'SMS alerts were 'another example of how the Saudi Arabian government has produced tools to limit women's freedoms.

'The tracking of women in this way curtails their movement and once again highlights the disturbing system of discrimination under the guardianship laws.'

The human rights organization has called on Apple and Google to accept that the app is being used to harm women, and demand changes to stop it happening in future.

Apple and Google have so far yet to to comment.

CREEPY GENE #conspiracy dailymail.co.uk

Anyone wonder why this conspiracy won't go away has never really looked into the questions raised and relies on the "official" narrative which an 8-year old could pick apart. The children have been seen alive, only they are 11 & 12 not 6 & 7. The images we all seen were of younger versions of the children and the adults were all too old to have toddlers...all of them.

This was my first clue. I dug further than my comfort level would allow and discovered a whole bunch of lies. Do you own research or shut up. Millions of people are now, three years on, questioning whether this event actually occurred. Tracy was the most notable and coming from a purely scientific background tore it apart using their own script. Read "Nobody Died at Sandy Hook", oh wait, Amazon banned it.

Sandy Hoax is a fake! I'm ready for every red arrow each sheep sends me! Where is the evidence? Why did they destroy the actual Sandy Hook building and not Columbine??? Why did the city records indicate that their were no murders in Sandy Hook after the shooting happened??? Where was the 2nd shooter from the report? Why weren't the windows shot out like they claimed. And oh I remember this one from you right wing nuts, why wasn't Obama more upset?

You claimed his tears were fake and unremorseful. It's because it did NOT HAPPEN! Funny how all the "parents" who are way too old to be having toddlers are actors? Coincidence? I think not! Look up Emily Parker's family. Emily's "father" was laughing and joking before his press interview and them is heard saying he needs to get into character. Emily MET Obama after she supposedly died at Sandy Hook. There are photos! Do you research!!!

Andrea X #racist dailymail.co.uk

White people not welcome: Costa Rican ‘healing’ retreat offers women of color a break from caucasians

The getaway location in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, has banned white people
Guests enjoy yoga, meditation and vegan food in the retreat run by Andrea X
Founder Andrea X thinks white people should be banned from owning passports
She 'completely cut out white people' from her life due to 'damage' they caused

A female-only retreat in Costa Rica is offering women of color the chance of a break from white people.

Andrea X, who created Women of Color Healing Retreat in Puerto Viejo, said she has 'completely cut out white people' from her life, saying 'they have caused enough damage'.

Guests enjoy yoga, meditation and vegan food in an environment free from what the founder calls micro-aggressions and passive-aggressiveness that exists in the US.

Andrea X said she decided one day to completely 'eliminate' white people from her personal life.

She said her life became 'much more breezy', and even said white people shouldn't be given passports due to how destructive they are.

'They are here,' she said, 'They are everywhere. I feel white people shouldn't even have passports.

'I have no tips for white people. Let us have our space.

'Let us have our room and hang out with other white people - you've done enough damage.'

Andrea X's retreat allows women to spend 10 days in her company, discussing the frustrations of life in the US.

Many, including Alexis Bromley from Omaha, Nebraska, used the trip to detox from what was described as constant racism in the US.

She said everyday judgement means she feels more at home in foreign countries than in her home state.

And with Donald Trump as President, the women said the issue is getting worse rather than better.

'It's hard in Nebraska, because it's a red state,' Ms Bromley told Vice.

The Republican has divided the country, in the opinion of those who stayed at the retreat, saying

The idea in Costa Rica is to effectively create a black nation, according to Andrea X, which would cater exclusively to people of color.

She said: 'It will be a community of just black people living here.

Unknown man #fundie dailymail.co.uk

(This happened in 2013)

A man who infected his teenage girlfriend with HIV then urged her to 'sleep around' to spread the virus was jailed for four-and-a-half years today. The 32-year-old hid the fact he was HIV positive from the girl, who was only 16 when they met. She only discovered she was infected with the virus when she went for a hospital appointment, by which time the couple had a one year old son.

Once the girl knew she was infected, the man urged her to sleep with other people so they wouldn't be alone in having HIV. The court heard that as well as the teenager, the man had unprotected sex with three other women, playing 'Russian Roulette' with their lives. One, in her 20s, was later diagnosed with HIV. The other two women were tested, but found not to have been infected.

The 'callous' man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, denied inflicting grievous bodily harm between 2006 and 2008 but was found guilty following an eight-day trial at Leicester Crown Court. He was jailed for four and a half years and given a 10-year anti-social behaviour order which bans him from having penetrative sex with anyone without disclosing to them that he is HIV positive. If he breaches the order, which includes protected sex, he can be jailed for up to five years.

The Zimbabwean immigrant - who has indefinite leave to remain in the UK - met the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, in 2006. She told jurors that a few months into the relationship, he suggested they try for a baby. She told the court she was 'surprised' and thought she was 'too young' but agreed because she was in love with him. They moved in together after she fell pregnant, but the man soon became 'violent and aggressive'.

The woman, now in her 20s, said that after she went back to college following the birth of a son, he would often bring girls to their home while she was out, claiming they were 'just friends'. But when their child was a year old, the man started showing signs of a sexually transmitted infection - which he blamed on her 'cheating'. The couple went to hospital for tests and doctors asked the woman if she was aware her partner was HIV positive. She broke down as she told the court how she was tested for the virus - and the following day was given the devastating news that she too had it. Their son was also checked - but his result was negative.

The woman, who gave evidence from behind a screen told the court: 'I was very surprised and puzzled because I had been living with this man for two years and he never mentioned it at all to me.

'He said he had told me, and I said "No, you did not"’. 'That is something that is so important. He didn’t seem fazed by it. It did not surprise him.' The woman, whose dreams of becoming a midwife were wrecked by the diagnosis, said she managed to forgive him as their son 'needed two parents'. It was during this time that the man asked her to 'sleep around and give it to other people'. The woman wept as she told a jury how he ‘believed he should spread the HIV as he hadn’t done anything wrong to get it’.

She said: 'This was so it would not just be us that were HIV positive. 'He believed that he had done nothing wrong or anything to get the virus. He believed he should not have the virus so he should spread it.' Throughout the trial, the man claimed he had told all his partners that he was HIV positive. A charge of GBH relating to the other woman he infected was thrown out after judge Michael Pert QC ruled there was insufficient evidence to prove sex with the man was the only way she could have caught the disease.

Sentencing, Judge Michael Pert QC told the man: 'You found out in 2004 that you were HIV positive. 'You were very angry and bitter about that. You were then utterly selfish and irresponsible and, in that sense, a dangerous man.' Rebecca Herbert, prosecuting, said: 'Few women in their right minds, let alone two or, indeed, four of them, would have unprotected sex with a man with HIV.

'He’s been utterly selfish, showing callous disregard and recklessness towards them and their wellbeing. 'Having unprotected sex with someone who is HIV positive is a bit like Russian Roulette. You might be lucky and might not get it - or you might.'

Unknown animal rights extremists #fundie dailymail.co.uk

This is the shocking moment balaclava-wearing protesters used iron bars to beat a huntsmaster unconscious during a meet. Mike Lane, Joint Master of the Tedworth Hunt in Wiltshire, had been attempting to calm saboteurs when he was punched, kicked, spat on and left needing hospital treatment. The attack happened after a fractious day of confrontations during a drag hunt on Saturday, when the masked group followed the hunt from the kennels in the morning. The 39-year-old explained that he had become upset after they were spraying the dogs with citronella spray - a harmless solution used to train nuisance dogs.

He said: 'We were packing up just after 4pm and it got quite violent. Five or six of them came across to where we were all parked and started to make a nuisance of themselves. 'I went over to try to calm it all down and one of them spat in my face. I was then punched by another and a scuffle broke out. "I slipped over and on the ground one of them kicked me in the head twice and knocked me out.' He added that after that, he has no recollection of what happened, but recalls 'iron bars being swung on lengths of rope'.

'Luckily there were still enough people around who came to my aid and they ran back to their vehicles and drove off at speed. Mr Lane said the group had been 'harassing' them throughout the drag hunt and were 'spraying the hounds with citronella spray' and he had remonstrated with them when the scuffle broke out. He was taken to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon and treated for concussion and several broken teeth. 'Lots of people videoed what happened, and it is quite disconcerting to see yourself being knocked out on film.'

Police have now launched a major investigating into the incident, which happened near the village of Everleigh in Wiltshire as the meet closed, and are trying to identify those responsible. Mr Lane was taken to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon where he was treated for concussion and several broken teeth. A spokeswoman for Wiltshire Police said: 'The Tedworth Hunt had been out on a drag hunt and according to the hunt, a group of up to a dozen people - both men and women - wearing balaclavas had been harassing the hunt throughout the day. 'The protesters had left the scene by the time police arrived. 'We can confirm that a 39-year-old man from the Marlborough area who is involved with the hunt was assaulted and needed treatment at Great Western Hospital.

'The man was knocked to the ground and received injuries to the head and back and was briefly unconscious. Police officers gave him first aid until an ambulance arrived. 'We are gathering evidence from witnesses, including video and still images recorded by Tedworth Hunt supporters.' Police said they are treating the case as a serious incident of ABH and potential public disorder. Inspector Paul Longden, of Wiltshire Police, said: 'Whilst we have no issue with people lawfully protesting, this was a totally unacceptable assault involving a group of men and women wearing balaclavas.

'We are making every effort to find and bring to justice the people who inflicted these injuries.' The incident is the latest in a long line of violent confrontations between hunt saboteurs and hunts, with both sides claiming the other to be the more violent. Tim Bonner, campaign director for the Countryside Alliance, said the incident showed that saboteurs needed to 'unmask'. 'This was a particularly nasty and cowardly attack by people who hoped by wearing face coverings they would avoid prosecution,' he said.

'The number of people involved in saboteur activities is far fewer than in the past, however we are concerned that the extremists who remain are increasingly resorting to violence. 'There have been a number of incidents over the past few years involving assaults on hunt staff and supporters by people who have masked their identities. 'We are particularly worried about the increasing tendency to violence by those wearing balaclavas and face coverings in a bid to escape the law. 'We call upon the police to use their powers, wherever possible, to unmask people who wear face coverings to hunt meets before there is violence.' Mr Lane has been advised to rest for at least a week following the attack.

Andrew Flintoff #conspiracy dailymail.co.uk

Former England cricket star Andrew Flintoff has admitted he is convinced the world is flat- or at least 'bulbous, like a turnip'.

'Freddie', 39, admitted he has become obsessed with a podcast called The Flat Earthers.

The show is a genuine conspiracy theory claiming the earth being round was a lie peddled by Disney - despite the assertion of a spherical planet having been around since the Ancient Greek era, and having been the popular belief since Christohper Columbus' famed voyage in 1492.

Speaking on his own podcast, for BBC 5 Live with former Wales footballer Robbie Savage, Flintoff ignored all satellite photos of Earth to suggest there was 'evidence to suggest the world wasn't round'.

And the pair are even deliberating a trip to next year's The Flat Earth International Conference in America.

He said: 'If you’re in a helicopter and you hover why does the Earth not come to you if it’s round?

'Why, if we’re hurtling through space, why would water stay still? Why is it not wobbling? Also if you fire a laser about 16 miles, if the world was curved, you shouldn’t be able to see it but you can.'

He added: 'The middle is the North Pole, around the outside is the South Pole which is like a big wall of ice. This is why all governments now have bases on the South Pole.'

Sikrikim #fundie dailymail.co.uk

An ultra-orthodox Jewish sect trashed a Jerusalem ice cream parlour because they were disgusted by people licking cones in public believing it promotes promiscuity.
The owners of the Zisalek parlour in the Mea Shearim neighbourhood had put up posters asking people not to consume the snacks in public and installed separate entrances for men and women.
But religious zealots from the ultra strict Sikrikim sect did not believe the measures went far enough and broke in during the night to vandalise the premises.
Owner Guy Ammar said: 'They had a real ball with us.
'But we were not deterred. Residents here told us not to give up and business is going well now.'
The Sikrikim are named after a Jewish group which 2,000 years ago fought against Roman rulers and suspected Jewish collaborators.
They wear masks to hide their identity and strike mainly at night.
Ultra-Orthodox Jews make up about 8 percent of Israel's 7.7 million population. With an average of eight children per family, they are a fast-growing population.
Many live below the poverty line and tend keep to their own towns and neighbourhoods.
Mea Shearim area is small, less than half a square mile, and home to about 30,000 residents considered among the most tight-knit and reclusive of Israel's ultra-Orthodox Jews.
Other stores in the neighbourhood, where men wear traditional black garb and women bare little but their face, have had their windows broken, locks glued and foul-smelling liquid smeared on walls.
Marlene Samuels, manager of the nearby Or Hachaim bookshop said: 'They also threw once a bag of excrement inside and smashed our windows three times.'
Marlene's shop has been attacked more than 10 times since it opened a year and a half ago, Samuels said. The latest assault was last week when one of the store's branches had its locks glued overnight.
The shop's owner met with the Sikrikim several times.
Although the store stocks only religious books, they include volumes published by Zionist organsiations while the Sikrikim believe a Jewish state can be established only with the coming of the Messiah.
Sikrikim attacks have also been reported at Beit Shemesh, a mixed secular and religious town with a growing ultra-Orthodox community, about half an hour's drive from Jerusalem. The latest target there has been a religious girls' school.
The Sikrikim who reside near the school object to the way the girls dress. Since the school year began in September they have regularly picketed outside shouting out at the students, most of them younger than 12, that they are promiscuous.
'They claim to be religious but what they do is a crime against God, against the Torah and against humanity,' said David Rotenberg, who works at Or Hachaim.

Philipp Budeikin #fundie dailymail.co.uk

In a chilling interview in St Petersburg, Budeikin was asked if he really pushed teenagers to their deaths.

'Yes,' he said. 'I truly was doing that. Don't worry, you'll understand everything. Everyone will understand.

'They were dying happy. I was giving them what they didn't have in real life: warmth, understanding, connections.'

He denied reports that there had been as many as 130 teenagers.

The lethal game called Blue Whale involves brainwashing vulnerable teenagers over a period of 50 days, urging them to complete tasks from watching horror movies to waking at strange hours, and self harming.

'There were 17 of them,' he said but also claimed another 28 were 'ready' to take their lives.

'There were also those with whom I was simply communicating, who committed suicide later but without my direct influence.

'There are people - and there is biological waste. Those who do not represent any value for society. Who cause or will cause only harm to society.

'I was cleaning our society of such people. It started in 2013 when I created F57 [online] community. I'd been thinking through this idea for 5 years. It was necessary to distinguish normal [people] from biological rubbish.'

Reem Allouche and Atika Latifi #fundie dailymail.co.uk

Muslim men are allowed to hit their wives if they disobey them and domestic violence is a 'beautiful blessing', according to the women's branch of a radical Islamic group.

Sydney primary school teacher Reem Allouche told the women's arm of hardline political group Hizb ut-Tahrir that men are permitted to hit women with sticks.

During the 30-minute discussion at a meeting in Sydney's west, Ms Allouche and fellow panellist Atika Latifi - who are both wearing headscarves - describe how beating women is a 'symbolic act'.

At one point they even demonstrated how to use a small stick called a 'sivaak' to hit 'disobedient' women.

In a video of the debate, which has been posted on Facebook, Ms Allouche says men should use the sivaak to punish their wives.

She then uses one of the sticks to hit Ms Latifi while the pair laugh.

Other permissible methods to punish women involve using a twisted scarf or piece of fabric, the women say.

Ms Allouche says the act is 'symbolic', while Ms Latifi claims it's 'a beautiful blessing'.

The women agree that they should only be beaten if they are caught 'committing sin' - pointing out that this means seriously disrespecting Allah or their husbands.

'Disobedience to the husband. Immoral acts or cheating. Admitting anyone to the home that the husband doesn't like,' Ms Latifi explains.

Ms Allouche smiles as she adds that does not mean a man can beat his wife simply for not cooking dinner, with the women agreeing that violence should only be used to 'promote tranquility'.

The pair agree that men have the right to beat their wives because husbands take a 'leadership' position within the family.

'It goes hand in hand that he would have the right to undertake disciplinary ­measures,' Ms Allouche says.

Ms Latifi adds: 'He is permitted - not obliged, not encouraged - but permitted, to hit her. That is what everyone is talking about. It should not cause pain. Not harsh.'

During the debate, Ms Allouche says wives who disobey Muslim teachings could face a beating from their husband, but only because 'he loves his wife, he fears for his wife'.

'It's almost a natural consequence,' she adds.

'He's not responding through anger or frustration or rage. He's responding in obedience to Allah's commands, in a measured and staged way, because we know when people talk about violence against women, often it happens in the heat of the moment, in anger, in frustration and what-not, whereas here, it's managed.'

Ms Latifi claims violence should be a last resort for husbands, saying they should admonish them first.

If that does not work, he should 'refuse to share the bed with her, not being intimate with her'.

Finally, if that does not work, he 'is permitted to hit her'.

'And what a beautiful blessing, that he said not to take the steps at the one time, but one after the other,' she continues.

'And what is the third option all about? What kind of hitting? It should not cause pain.'

The all-women meeting was held in Lakemba in Sydney's inner west, The Australian reported.

The government considered banning Hizb ut-Tahrir in 2007 but eventually deemed it to be a political group.

Islamic leader Keysar Trad apologised at the weekend for saying hitting women was a 'last resort', admitting to Sky News presenter Andrew Bolt that he had made a 'slip up'.

Uthman Badar #fundie dailymail.co.uk

A leader of a hardline Islamist group which campaigns for sharia law says Muslims who leave the religion should be put to death.

Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar was frank when asked about the group's policy at a forum in Bankstown, in Sydney's south-west, on Saturday night.

'The ruling for apostates as such in Islam is clear, that apostates attract capital punishment and we don't shy away from that,' Badar said in the presence of children. An apostate is someone who decides to leave Islam.

His extraordinary admission was exclusively captured on camera by Daily Mail Australia and the matter has now been referred to the Australian Federal Police by Justice Minister Michael Keenan.

Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia removed references to that apostasy policy from its website as Alison Bevege, a freelance journalist, sued the group for making her to sit in a women's-only section at a separate talk in October 2014.

On Saturday night, Ms Bevege held up a printed copy of Hizb ut-Tahrir's draft constitution of the khilafah state published on the UK site, which was on the group's Australian website until 2015.

This outlines their vision for a global Islamic caliphate, which has Muslims and non-Muslims living under sharia law.

She asked about their policy of killing people born as Muslims who leave the faith.

Article 7c of the document said: 'Those who are guilty of apostasy (murtadd) from Islam are to be executed according to the rule of apostasy, provided they have by themselves renounced Islam.'

Badar initially responded by saying the policy wasn't on its website before explaining how the group's apostasy policy was compatible with Islam.

'The whole thing covers different aspects of Islamic sharia law,' he said.

'The role of apostasy in Islam is very clear. Again, this is one of the things the West doesn’t like and seeks to change the role of apostasy.'

A spokeswoman for Justice Minister Michael Keenan condemned language that incites or advocates violence.

'Language that incites or advocates violence is not freedom of speech,' the spokeswoman said.

'This matter has been referred to the AFP.'

Badar's remarks came after he delivered the keynote lecture for the forum, which was called 'Sharia and the modern age'.

He said Islam was incompatible with a secular separation of religion and state, democracy, individual rights and even the process of science, which he called 'scientism'.

He compared calls to fit Islam within a secular society to domesticating a wild animal, putting Hizb ut-Tahrir at odds with secular Muslims who reject sharia law.

'The West seeks to domesticate Islam, to control, to bring within, the way you domesticate animals,' he said.

Badar described calls to reform Islam from secular Muslims as 'pernicious', 'insidious' and 'dangerous' and called for radical change.

'Always when you hear these sorts of calls, alarm bells should ring,' he said.

'The Islam people are calling for fits very well within modernity. They’re giving in to the pressure to conform.'

Carol Sarler #sexist dailymail.co.uk

Much as I like to trumpet the importance of a woman's right to choose all things at all times, there's one choice I simply cannot understand: the choice of an otherwise sane and healthy woman not to have children.

If a would-be mother is a singleton of 40 who decides to have a baby without a partner, I might wish she'd thought of it sooner and prepared for it better - but I understand.

If she's half of a lesbian couple who 'borrows' the wherewithal, I might cross my fingers that the child is not teased at school - but I understand. Even if she's a 66-year- old pregnant pensioner, threatening to turn motherhood into a freak show, I might (indeed, I do) think she's monstrously selfish and dangerously wrong - but again, more or less, I understand.

Yet if she says she hasn't a shred of maternal feeling in her, moreover, if she says she would prefer to concentrate on her career and that a child would only get in the way of it, then my head might acknowledge her right to do so. But my heart whispers: 'Lady, you're weird.'

It was welcome news, therefore, to discover this week that I am not alone. Research conducted over six years shows that far from bosses and colleagues always being suspicious of a working mother, the opposite is becoming true: it is the childless woman who is regarded as cold and odd.

As a result, it is these single-track careerists who are increasingly likely to be vilified, refused jobs and denied promotion because many employers believe them to lack what the study calls 'an essential humanity'. And I know exactly what they mean.

In the little hothouse of my own trade as a hack, I play a game with myself. Reading all the other female scribblers, sometimes with grudging admiration and sometimes none at all, I try to guess from their expression of their world view whether or not they are mothers.

I haven't - yet - been wrong. Now, with MPs so much in the headlines, I've extended the game and started to guess about the women among them, too.

As far as I can tell, my score is also pretty high there - even though it's just a feeling. On both sides of the political divide, as with the writers, it's not what MPs say or do, so much as how they go about it.

'Mothers bring something extra'

And if that touch of 'essential humanity' - or its absence - colours such notably tough professions, it's hardly surprising that employers are starting to notice that the same applies across the spectrum of workplaces.

Of course, we need not be silly about it.

Nobody wishes to see a female soldier in combat with a six-week-old infant in one arm and a rifle in the other.

Or a high-flier working 20-hour days while still breast-feeding. Or the mother of a small brood taking on any job of such erratic hours that she cannot promise them when or even if she'll be home.

But most jobs aren't like that - and most children don't stay babies for long.

Besides which, in my experiences both as a colleague and an employer, I have found that mothers almost always bring something extra to the job, to the benefit of all.

It's not the mothers, for a start, who are going to turn up late and hungover after a night on the razz; they'll have been up, dressed and alert for hours, having cooked a family breakfast and delivered their children to school. On time.

It's not the mothers, usually, who run the office bitch-fest.

They're not there to compete for the attentions of the male executives; they're there to get out of the house; they're there because they genuinely enjoy some adult company; and they're there because they have mouths to feed other than their own and shoes to buy for someone else's feet.

Two-thirds of working mothers, a recent survey found, could not provide for the children they love in the manner they would wish if they lost their jobs. So there's incentive for you.

They will, it is true, snatch time off for poorly children and Christmas carol services. And it's true they will insist that, in return for arriving on the dot of 9am, they must also leave on the dot of 5pm.

But rarely have I encountered a mother who did not offer to make up time lost, often in lunch hours. As for leaving on time, put enough mothers together in one workplace and you'll get rid of the ghastly ethos of 'presenteeism', whereby people vie for plaudits based solely on how late - albeit often uselessly - they hang around the office.

The prioritising that may baffle other people is a cinch for a woman who has spent years juggling a household. Negotiating skills? A request for 10 per cent off an overdue invoice is nothing to a woman who has had to broker a deal on Britain's Got Talent versus bedtime.

When it comes to emergencies, if you have run all the way to a clinic with a terrified toddler vomiting down your neck then, trust me, a package delayed in transit is a piece of cake. And if those are the tangibles, the intangibles - the 'essential humanity' - are more important still.

You cannot be a mother without knowing something about selflessness, compassion, generosity, commitment, fierce loyalty and plain hard work. You cannot - surely - be a boss and not value assets such as those in your staff.

Nor is it the boss who pays the price for the extras a mother brings with her; she's the one who pays for that. Enough reams have been written about the long hours of slog it takes to run a home and hold down a job at the same time. Yet still we keep doing it because we want our work, our independence and our money.

But, more than all the things we want, we actually need our children; they complete us as women, they are our light and our love and our legacy.

We feel desperately sorry for those who yearn for children they cannot have; the unwilling barren, if you will. But when we meet a woman who chooses her childlessness in the belief that there is something out there worth more, we smile politely even while - once again - our guts whisper: 'Lady, you're weird.'

So three cheers for the employers who are catching on, the ones who don't want to people their workforces with the cold, the calculating, the sad and the mad. The only question is: what took you so long?

Trump grabs 'em by the Twitter as he says he has 'tremendous respect for women' on International Women's Day

Donald Trump boasted on Wednesday that he has 'tremendous respect' for women.

The president sent two tweets in honor of International Women's Day – drawing a sharp contrast from his long-ago comments about women that drew outrage during the 2016 campaign.

'I have tremendous respect for women and the many roles they serve that are vital to the fabric of our society and our economy,' Trump wrote in one tweet.

'On International Women's Day, join me in honoring the critical role of women here in America & around the world,' a second message read. The two tweets were sent from both Trump's official '@POTUS' account and his personal account.

Ivanka Trump echoed her father's sentiments, tweeting: 'Today, we celebrate women and are reminded of our collective voice and the powerful impact we have on our societies and economies.'

Trump was regularly pilloried during the presidential campaign in a seemingly endless series of stories about his past comments about women, despite declaring more than 50 times over the course of the White House race that he 'cherished' women.

The most infamous example to the contrary was an audio recording in which he is heard explaining that famous men can get away with sexually abusing women.

'When you're a star, they let you do it,' the president was heard in ten-year-old audio, captured before a broadcast of 'Access Hollywood.'

'Grab them by the p***y,' Trump said in the recording. 'You can do anything.'

Then-candidate Trump issued a pointed mea culpa, the first such plaintive apology of his political career.

'I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize,' he said in a video message.

'I've never said I'm a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I'm not. I've said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am.'

Various Muslims #fundie dailymail.co.uk

A Muslim teenager has received death threats after she was filmed twerking in a busy city centre while wearing the hijab.

The girl, believed to be 17, was caught on camera as she danced provocatively with a friend and a street performer in front of a crowd in Birmingham.

The short clip was posted on social media and has since gone viral, sparking widespread criticism from other members of the Muslim community who branded her a 'f****** s***'. One wrote: 'Stupid b**** needs to be killed.'

The girl later publicly apologised for her actions in a YouTube interview, saying she had 'disrespected' the religious veil.

Speaking later in an interview, the girl explained she was shopping with friends when they came across a man playing music on the street.

The girl, wearing long, loose clothing, was filmed as she danced to the R&B track, squatting down as she thrust her bottom back towards her friend.

At one point the friend made way for the male street performer, who lifted an arm into the air as he gyrated with the young woman. She appeared to be in good spirits, smiling, clapping and singing along.

The video sparked a heated debate when it was posted on Facebook.

One viewer wrote: 'Truly disgusting. Some people don't understand the meaning of the veil. You can dress in a nun outfit and dance like a w***e in public. Defeats the whole purpose, doesn't it?'

Another posted: 'She didn't mind twerking in public so why should we hide for her f*** that h**'.

A third added: 'That's so disrespectful is you are wearing hijab you are representing Islam respect dignity so how to act like a fool that is a big disrespect.'

However others spoke out in defence of the girl, saying she 'just wanted to have fun'.

One wrote: 'I feel sorry for her - people shouldn't be judgmental'. Another added: 'Everyone makes mistakes and she shouldn't be held for it.'

The teenager later spoke to Muslim YouTube star Ali Dawah, who makes videos around spreading the message of Islam and clarifying misconceptions.

She said she 'hesitated' before joining in the dance and explained she has mental health problems that means she 'doesn't think straight'.

Holding back tears, the teenager revealed she has previously battled with depression and had only started practising her religion two months ago.

She added: 'To all the girls that wear hijab and wear abayah, I'm sorry for disrespecting it. I've learnt from my mistake.

'It's gone viral and I'm just hurt, I just want everybody to leave it alone and keep everything away, I don't want it to be how it was and I am not going to do anything like that again.

'I am sorry for disrespecting it and thank you to all of you that helped, it's up to Allah to judge, at the end of the day I will be judged for it, not you guys.'

Piers Corbyn, Ian Fantom, Nicholas Kollerstrom #conspiracy dailymail.co.uk

The event, which took place on Tuesday night at St Saviour’s church in Pimlico, London, was organised by the Keep Talking Group, a small organisation devoted mainly to 9/11 conspiracy theories. Corbyn was the keynote speaker.

One of the organisers, Nicholas Kollerstrom – who has called the Holocaust a ‘primal myth’ that ‘never happened’ and claimed that the gas chambers were used only to ‘kill bugs’ – introduced Corbyn, calling him a ‘unique British scientist’.

Kollerstrom's book, Breaking The Spell: The Holocaust, Myth And Reality, was openly on sale in the hall.

The disgraced academic, who was stripped of his Honorary Fellowship by University College London (UCL) in 2008 after publishing an article entitled 'The Auschwitz “Gas Chamber” Illusion', was pictured signing books before the speech.

Also on stage was the Keep Talking Group’s founder, Ian Fantom, who had invited Corbyn to take part in the event. His group aims to prove that 9/11 and 7/7 were set-ups, and he has called David Cameron ‘every bit as bad as Adolf Hitler’.

Fantom appeared alongside Corbyn wearing a T-shirt saying ‘9/11 and 7/7 were staged’ on the back, and ‘non-violent extremist’ on the front – a reference to a phase used by Cameron to criticise conspiracy theorists.

In his speech, the well-known ‘9/11 Truther’ recommended a play called I.S.I.S., which promotes the idea that the World Trade Centre attacks were staged and features a character referred to as ‘Gay Jew Brad’.

He said: ‘Ten years ago, when my association turned on me – as the press has just turned on Trump and the British press is turning on Putin – I realised that you are judged not by the quality of your research but entirely on whether other people like the results.’

He then drew a parallel between his own work and that of Corbyn, saying that the scientist had ‘passed the Galileo test’ because he ‘stood up to authority’ in denying climate change.

Also for sale was a book by Kollerstrom, 69, entitled How Britain Initiated Both World Wars, and another exploring the idea that Paul McCartney died on ‘9/11 of 1966’ and was replaced by an impostor.

When the controversial T-shirt and books were brought to Corbyn's attention during questions from the audience, he said:

‘Sometimes it’s better not to [express my] views in public. But I think the stuff about 9/11 is pretty unbelievable. I know a lot of scientists who think so.

'In fact, I was invited over to America at one point, in fact to talk about climate, but there was a second agenda they had on to talk to me about 9/11, you know. There’s stuff [in the official explanation] that makes no sense to a rational mind.’
In a statement given to MailOnline after the event, Fantom said that Corbyn had been 'set up by the press in order to smear his brother', and that the 'distortion and manipulation' was coming from 'the Israel lobby'.

James Thring, a conspiracy theorist who has links with former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke and has campaigned for the release of Holocaust denier David Irving, was pictured at the event.

When he took the floor, Corbyn delivered a rambling lecture in which he argued that the notion of climate change had been fabricated by a global elite in order to enrich themselves and ‘control the world’.

‘This is the agenda of the globalisation story backed by the climate change authorities,’ he said. ‘You see, the climate change, it’s an ideology used to promote globalisation and the super-profits of Wall Street.’

In response to a round of applause, he smiled and made the ‘peace’ sign with his fingers, a gesture that he repeated a number of times during the event.
He added: ‘Any scare story will be used by someone to make money, whether it’s true or not. The CO2 one is false, and it’s been used to make a lot of money.

‘Kids have been brainwashed, that’s for sure.’

In denial, Donald? Trump insists 'we are winning' as he rejects 'phony' polls conducted by the 'disgusting media'

A defiant Donald Trump blamed his campaign struggles on 'phony polls' from the 'disgusting' media on Monday, fighting to energize his most loyal supporters as his path to the presidency shrinks.

With just 14 days until the election, the Republican nominee campaigned in battleground Florida as his team conceded publicly as well as privately that crucial Pennsylvania may be slipping away to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

That would leave him only a razor-thin pathway to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House on November 8.

Despite continued difficulties with women and minorities, Trump refuses to soften his message in the campaign's final days to broaden his coalition.

Yet he offered an optimistic front in the midst of a three-day tour through Florida as thousands began voting there in person.

'I believe we're actually winning,' Trump declared during a round table discussion with farmers gathered next to a local pumpkin patch.

A day after suggesting the First Amendment to the Constitution may give journalists too much freedom, he insisted that the media are promoting biased polls to discourage his supporters from voting.

'The media isn't just against me. They're against all of you,' Trump told cheering supporters later in St. Augustine. 'They're against what we represent.'

In more bad news for Trump, a new poll shows young voters turning to Clinton now that the race has settled down to two main candidates.

[...]

The former secretary of state campaigned alongside New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, who is running for the Senate, and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who was merciless as she seized on recent revelations of Trump's predatory sexual language and several allegations of sexual assault.

'He thinks that because he has a mouth full of Tic Tacs, he can force himself on any woman within groping distance,' Warren charged. 'I've got news for you Donald: Women have had it with guys like you.'

Trump has denied all the recent allegations, and he addressed a new one Monday in an interview with WGIR radio in New Hampshire.

He called the accusations 'total fiction' and lashed out at former adult film performer Jessica Drake, who said Saturday that he had grabbed and kissed her without permission and offered her money to visit his hotel room a decade ago.

'One said, 'He grabbed me on the arm.' And she's a porn star,' Trump said. He added, 'Oh, I'm sure she's never been grabbed before.'

With Election Day two weeks away, Trump's electoral map looks bleak.

'In a couple of years, I'll be dating you': What a 46-year-old Donald Trump told two 14-year-old choirgirls as they performed for him outside the Plaza

Donald Trump told a group of 14-year-old girls he would be 'dating' them in 'a couple of years' in 1992, the latest in a stream of decades-old comments to have emerged as he battles for his spot in the presidential race.

Then 46, the businessman watched the choir girls perform at The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, New York, before reportedly making the questionable comment.

It was reported in a Chicago Tribune newspaper article at the time under the headline: 'Such a comedian'.

'Donald Trump turned up Monday for a carol sing by a youth choir outside Manhattan's Plaza Hotel.

'He asked two of the girls how old they were. After they replied they were 14, Trump said: 'Wow. Just think - in a couple of years I'll be dating you,' the report, from a December 1992 wire brief said.

It was published by The Los Angeles Times on Friday morning, hours after footage in which he agreed jokingly that he was a 'sexual predator' emerged.

In the 2006 video, he shrugged and laughed as the label was given to him by radio host Robin Quivers. Trump's 24-year-old daughter, who would have been 10 in 1992, was present.

On Thursday, other footage in which he boasted he would be dating a '10-year-old girl in 10 years' surfaced.

In the 1992 Entertainment Tonight tape, Trump, who was 46 at the time, allowed the girl on to the escalator at Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York.

As she rode up it with a group of others, he was caught on microphone boasting: 'I'm going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?'.

The video, which was released by CBS News on Wednesday, is the latest in which the Republican presidential candidate has made questionable comments towards women.

At the time Trump had been divorced from his first wife, Ivanka, for a year and was dating his second wife, Marla Maples.

The footage showed Trump asking the girl: 'Are you going up the escalator?' while both are out of view.

'Yeah,' she replies, before stepping on to it.

Still out of frame, he then boasted: 'I'm going to be dating her in 10 years, can you believe it.'

The unknown girl was 10 at the time, CBS, which owns Entertainment Tonight, claimed, and was in a group of other children.

'He is the founder of ISIS': Trump repeatedly claims Obama is to blame for creating the terror group and calls Hillary its 'co-founder'

Donald Trump claimed Wednesday night during a raucous south Florida campaign rally that President Barack Obama and his first secretary of state Hillary Clinton were the 'founder' and 'co-founder' of the ISIS terror army.

His stunning claim came at the end of a pointed lecture recounting the conditions that led the regional militant group called al-Qaeda in Iraq to grow its ambitions – and blaming the president for creating the power vacuum that terrorists rushed in to fill.

'In many respects, you know, they honor President Obama. ISIS is honoring President Obama,' Trump said, working himself into a lather at the end of a full day of campaigning in two states.

'He is the founder of ISIS. He is the founder of ISIS, okay? He's the founder! He founded ISIS!' he continued, always crescendoing.

'And I would say,' Trump added more solemnly, getting to his election-year point: 'The co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton. Co-founder! Crooked Hillary Clinton! And that's what it's about!'

Trump has made claims before that Obama precipitously pulled U.S. forces out of Iraq on a predetermined date, giving ISIS room to breathe and expand.

But Wednesday marked the first time he has credited the current White House with the creation of the self-described 'Islamic State.'

Minutes later in what may be interpreted as a dog-whistle to his Islamoskeptic fans, Trump uttered another rarity, referring to the president with his Arab middle name.

Responding to complaints that he had misinterpreted the recent geopolitics of Russia and Ukraine, he declared that the Crimea 'was taken' by Russian President Vladimir Putin 'during the administration of Barack Hussein Obama.'

Trump's figurative case that Obama 'founded' ISIS rests on his contention that the president disrupted a delicate balance of power between Iran and Iraq, two countries afflicted by more than eight decades of border disputes.

'We had a president who decided he would announce a date, and he was gonna get out by that date. The problem is, the enemy, which really turned out to be ISIS, the enemy was sitting back and actually didn't believe that this could be happening,' he said.

Trump criticized Obama for failing to leave 'some small forces' behind in Iraq to keep order.

The result, he said, was predictable chaos with Iran the dominant aggressor but ISIS reclaiming dominance in broad swaths of Iraq.

'You know, for years and years these two countries fought,' he said. 'Decades and decades and decades they'd fight. That's what they did – they'd fight.'

'And they'd fight for four years and stop. Then they'd fight for four more years. Saddam Hussein would drop gas, everybody would complain. Tremendous, tremendous carnage. And they'd stop. Then they'd start.'

'It would never change,' in Trump's reading of history, 'because you had military powers of essentially the same strength.'

'And then,' he said, President George W. Bush invaded Iraq and 'decimated one of the powers, and we unleashed fury all over the Middle East. And it was a terrible mistake.'

'And then Obama came in,' he continued. 'And normally you want to clean up. He made a bigger mess out of it. He made such a mess. And then you had Hillary with Libya. So sad.'

During the rally he also unveiled a number of new signs including one pitting himself against Clinton showing how much of their campaigns were funded by hedge funders.

He also unveiled a chart showing home ownership rates plummeting over the years.

'And by the way, if – if she gets to pick her judges, [there's] nothing you can do, folks.'

Donald Trump called his Democratic rival 'the devil' on Monday in a high-profile escalation of his campaign rhetoric – at precisely the moment he needed to change the subject.

Facing a four-day-long scandal over his criticism of the father of a Muslim soldier who died in combat, the Republican presidential nominee shifted gears.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, Trump told an overflow crowd at a high school in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, 'made a deal with the devil' when he endorsed Clinton at last week's Democratic National Convention.

'She's the devil!' he added.

Trump has hinted at the insult before, saying Friday in Colorado that 'Bernie blew it. He sold his soul to the devil. He did.'

But Trump had previously stopped short of declaring that Hillary Clinton is, in fact, the Prince – or Princess – of Darkness.

By rallying around Clinton instead of standing on principle, the billionaire said, Sanders 'made a bad deal. He should have not made a deal. He would have gone down as [having] done something really important.'

'Once he made that deal, and believe me, he has buyer's remorse.'

'If he would have just not done anything – just go home, go to sleep, relax – he would have been a hero,' he said. 'But he made a deal with the devil. She's the devil! He made a deal with the devil. It's true.'

It also said the game carried symbols of 'deviant' religions and organisations, such as 'international Zionism' and Israel, Christian crosses, Freemasonry, and symbols from Japan's native Shinto religion.

'Save Sarah!': Supergirl star makes public plea to free his cousin, 17, from controversial 'pray the gay away' camp after she was locked up there by 'her parents because she took a girl to prom'

• Jeremy Jordan, star of TV and Broadway, says his cousin Sarah was forced into a religious boarding facility by her parents

• Jordan is publicizing her plight on a GoFundMe page, which says that the Christian facility is teaching her that homosexuality is 'a sin and abnormal'

• Sarah, 17, was apparently whisked off to the state-licensed residential facility called Heartlight Ministries after attending prom with her girlfriend

• Legally, she will have to stay there for a YEAR until she's 18, says the page

A teen is allegedly being held against her will at a 'pray away the gay' religious facility in Texas and her famous cousin is trying to free her.

Jeremy Jordan, who stars in CBS's 'Supergirl,' has started a social media campaign to bring attention to his cousin Sarah, 17, who he says was forced by her parents into to go to a Christian boarding facility in a remote, rural area outside of Austin after she brought her girlfriend to prom.

It's unclear when she was sent there, but proms are usually held in warmer months before school closes for the summer.

'My amazing friends & fans, PLEASE help us save my sweet gay cousin Sarah who’s trapped at a boarding facility in TX,' Jordan tweeted on June 4.

The Supergirl actor, who plays Winn Schott on the CBS show, further added on Facebook: 'I can't believe beautiful, smart, incredible kids like my cousin Sarah are still being told that being gay is wrong. But it's worse than that for Sarah... She's been placed at a remote boarding facility to help "pray away the gay" for a year with no communication to the outside world.

'She may not be able to see it now, but please show her how much she matters and take a stand to help us free this wonderful young woman and welcome her back to a world of love and acceptance.'

In another post he adds: 'My cousin Sarah, like any other teenager, loves a shameless selfie... Its just sometimes hers includes another girl... You can't see it, but the caption of the photo on the left reads "Merry Christmas from two kids in love." It BREAKS MY HEART this sweet young girl who's only "issue" is loving another girl has been sent to a facility for "troubled teens." News flash, folks, there's nothing wrong with her.'

Sarah is at a state-licensed residential facility called Heartlight Ministries.

Julie Moody, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, told the New York Daily News that she could not discuss whether the agency is investigating the situation but confirmed that the girl was at the facility.

According to the facility's website it says: 'For 25 years, we’ve provided a safe haven for positive change. Our residential setting offers struggling teens an atmosphere to develop healthier patterns during the most troubling times.'

It adds that it serves 56 kids, on 150 acres, with more than 40 staff members.

According to the GoFundMe page, Sarah's parents sent her to the camp after she and her girlfriend went to prom together. The page describes it as 'Bible-based therapy' for her 'disease'.

'Sarah’s parents, who believe that homosexuality is a sin and abnormal, sent Sarah away against her will to an East Texas Christian boarding facility for troubled teens to “pray away the gay,'' says the GoFundMe page which aims to raise funds for Sarah's legal expenses.

The page has raised over $48,000 in four days, almost half of its $100,000 goal. The page says that legal bills have already totaled $20,000. Anything left over will go to Sarah's college fund.

Christine Andresen, a lawyer who specializes in LGBT issues has been hired to try to free Sarah.

The New York daily News also reported that Andresen said: 'I can't comment on pending litigation, other than to authenticate that to the best of my knowledge, the background information on the GoFundMe shared by Sarah's cousin is truthful.'

In Texas, a teen who is not yet 18 can be remanded to a residential boarding facility against their will, says the page's administrator, Joey Jordan, also a cousin of Sarah's.

The page also says that Sarah tried to escape but was brought back to the facility and 'punished' and that friends tried to rescue her but were threatened with arrest by local police.

Sarah is described as an excellent student who was at the top ten percent of her class, on the debate team, and in the National Honor Society, and had been applying to colleges.

Her parents swooped in and bundled her off to the 'pray away the gay' camp. The GoFundMe page describes it as 'Bible-based therapy' for her 'disease'.

Sarah, whose surname was not immediately clear, is described as being cut off from her friends and family with no email, phone, or visitors allowed.

'Not only does this type of 'therapy' not work, mental health professionals from organizations like the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics have found it to be psychologically damaging, especially for minors,' the page administrator and Jeremy's cousin, Joey Jordan, wrote.

Fadel Soliman #fundie dailymail.co.uk

An Islamic cleric who defends domestic violence is among a string of extremist speakers touring British universities unchallenged, the Mail Investigations Unit can reveal.

Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman spoke at five such events last year, using them to refer Muslim students to an online lecture series in which he speaks in favour of hitting women and outlines the Islamic case for sex slavery and polygamy.

Mr Soliman told students at Sheffield University that watching his lectures could be ‘a turning point’ in their lives.

In his extraordinary videos, he advises physical punishment for wives who have displeased their husbands, saying ‘the hitting must be done with a small stick’.

"The true implication of the spanking is to sound an alarm that the husband has passed to a new stage of serious displeasure."
Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman

Explaining why it is necessary, he says that when a husband is unhappy with the behaviour of his wife, ‘after passing through two stages of non-physical interaction, the next stage must involve something physical, in order to escalate the intensity of the warning’.

The preacher is one of several extremists being permitted to espouse their views unchallenged at Britain’s universities – in a possible breach of the Government’s counter-extremism strategy, Prevent. Since September, universities and colleges are legally required to have policies to stop extremists radicalising students on campus. This includes an obligation to ‘ensure those espousing extremist views do not go unchallenged’.

The Mail revealed yesterday how CAGE – the notorious organisation which called Islamic State killer Jihadi John ‘a beautiful young man’ – has participated in at least 13 university events since September, calling on students to sabotage Prevent.

Another group, MEND, an Islamist organisation whose director has condoned the killing of British troops, appeared in at least ten events on campuses across the country last term.

And a speaker from an organisation which mocked last year’s Charlie Hebdo terror attack in Paris spoke at a student event despite having being refused permission, using the platform to tell students the State was ‘fundamentally racist’ and they should oppose Prevent.

Home Secretary Theresa May said the revelations show universities need to do more to stop ‘damaging, extremist rhetoric’ going unchallenged on campuses.
Up to 19 universities where the Mail identified extremist-linked speakers or events could now face an inquiry by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, it is understood.

Lord Carlile, one of Britain’s top legal experts, said last night that universities that allowed Mr Soliman to speak unchallenged had ‘failed in their duty of care’. He said: ‘This is a person who has given at least tacit approval to what sounds like criminal behaviour. Universities really should not be permitting people like this on to their campuses.

Mr Soliman is thought to have spoken at Nottingham, Leicester, Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield universities. He urged young Muslims to watch his disturbing 30-part video series endorsing violent and extreme practices.

In one, he suggests it is acceptable for a man to hit his wife, if she repeatedly ‘goes out and refuses to say where she’s going’. He says: ‘The hitting must be done with a small stick’ and ‘should not be painful’, adding: ‘The true implication of the spanking is to sound an alarm that the husband has passed to a new stage of serious displeasure.’

In another video he says it is forbidden for men and women to ‘engage in frivolous talk’, that ‘men and women should lower their gaze and avoid unnecessary eye contact, especially with lust’. He says Muslims should avoid interacting with members of the opposite sex, even at work, and women should not wear perfume as it ‘arouses men’. In other videos, he outlines the Islamic case for sex slavery and polygamy.

At an event at the University of Sheffield on December 3, Mr Soliman urged 120 Muslim students: ‘Put these videos on your Facebook pages, share it with people.’ He was also allowed to speak at the University of Manchester last month, despite concerns being raised by university staff. At the event, the cleric said: ‘They told me not to say anything controversial.’

Mr Soliman denies he supports domestic violence. He said: ‘I have provided the Mail with a detailed response to the allegations which are published in this article and informed them in detail why I am not guilty of the things which they allege against me. Once the paper is published, I will respond to the allegations on my own website.’

He has a strong following among young female students. The Sheffield event – which was not formally segregated but at which men and women sat on opposite sides of the hall – had an audience of more than 100 students, mostly female.

Beforehand, groups of young women could be heard discussing how much they ‘love’ Mr Soliman – even making swooning gestures and fanning themselves. One woman in her early 20s, who travelled from London, told others how excited she was to see the cleric in person.

"It’s within their interest to fuel Islamophobia. It’s within their interest to sell more weapons. It’s within their interest to make the Middle East unstable."

Éric Zemmour #fundie dailymail.co.uk

The comments by Éric Zemmour, who has previously been convicted of inciting racial hatred, prompted outrage and led to him being dropped from an 11-year stint on a chat show.

But many sprang to the best-selling author's defence including the far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen, who declared the move 'loathsome censorship'.

Mr Zemmour's interview with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera went largely unnoticed on the other side of the Alps for more than a month after it appeared in October.

It sparked a public debate, however, after the comments were picked up by former French education minister Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

Although the original interview has been deleted from Corriere della Sera's website, it was copied and translated several times by people on both sides of France's political divide.

In the interview Mr Zemmour said Muslims 'live among themselves' in suburbs which French people have been forced to leave, according to one of his supporters.

The interviewer then asked: 'Then what are you suggesting? To deport 5million French Muslims?'

Mr Zemmour is said to have replied: 'I know it's unrealistic, but history is often surprising.

'Who would have thought in 1940 that a million pieds-noirs [Europeans living in North Africa], twenty years later, would have left Algeria to return to France?

'Or that after the war five or six million Germans would leave Central-Eastern Europe where they had lived for centuries?'

The interviewer protested that Mr Zemmour was 'speaking of exoduses triggered by immense tragedies', to which he replied: 'I think we are heading for chaos.

'This situation of a people inside a people, of Muslims inside French people, will lead us to civil war.

'Millions of people live here in France and refuse to live in the French manner.'

Explaining this so-called 'Harlot Babylon' in the film, he told viewers that it was a movement that conducted good deeds 'for all the wrong reasons'.
He said in his speech: 'The Harlot Babylon is preparing the nations to receive the Antichrist.
'The Harlot Babylon will be a religion of affirmation, toleration, no absolutes, a counterfeit justice movement. They will feed the poor, have humanitarian projects, inspire acts of compassion for all the wrong reasons.

Revlon CEO 'believes he can smell black people when they walk into a room, hates 'dirty Americans' and 'thinks all Jews stick together' claims shocking lawsuit

A former Revlon employee is suing the cosmetic company claiming he was unjustly fired and the company's CEO made racist remarks.
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, Alan Meyers, 56, a former chief scientific officer at Revlon, claimed Revlon CEO and President Lorenzo Delpani made racist and offensive remarks against, Jews, blacks, and Americans, the New York Post reports.
Delpani allegedly said he hates living among Americans, calling Americans 'small-minded' and 'dirty,' according to the court papers. The Italian-born Delpani allegedly said he couldn't wait to get back to a 'real' country.

Meyers also holds that he was discriminated against for his Jewish heritage. Meyers said that Delpani told him he was 'shocked' that there weren't more Jews at the company, with Revlon's largest shareholder being Ron Perelman, a Jewish American.
According to the suit, Delpani said that 'Jews stick together' and added that 'thankfully' Perelman 'is not like that anymore.'
In the lawsuit, Meyers accused Delpani of making racist remarks toward blacks upon his return from a meeting in South Africa. Delpani allegedly said he could 'smell a black person when he entered the room,' according to Clutch Magazine.
He also allegedly went on an 'anti-American' rant in which he said the U.S. is becoming like
ISIS,The Virginia Gazette reports.

Meyers is Jewish and American-born. He claims Delpani has had it out for him since he expressed concerns about safety issues surrounding Revlon's acquisition of a Spanish beauty care company in 2013, the Gazette reports.
Meyers claims Delpani accused him of raising 'ghost' safety problems at the recently acquired labs, resulting in slower production.
Meyers said he repeatedly expressed his concerns to Delpani who urged him to keep quiet so the CEO could maintain 'plausible deniability' of the issues.
The lawsuit says that Meyers was fired Dec. 10, after working for the company as a scientist for 4 years, when he complained about the issues and Delpani's treatment of him, according to the Post.
Meyers spoke about an October incident, in the suit, when Delpani made the 56-year-old hold up a whiteboard for almost 30 minutes during a meeting, forcing him to act as a human easel.
The ordeal is affecting Meyers health, he says. Meyers says he is experiencing chest pains due to stress from the situation which have forced him into the hospital.
He is seeking unspecified punitive and compensatory damages, in the suit, the Post reports.

Revlon struck back, vowing to 'aggressively fight these baseless claims and this frivolous action,' according to the Gazette.
Company officials described Meyer's claims as 'meritless,' saying the scientist demonstrated 'critical lapses in judgement.'
The company holds that Meyers 'failed to perform at the high standard we demand of our employees.'

As Ralph Ellis has conclusively shown, Jesus was king of Odessa and a real person in the line of King David but his real name, Manu - immanuel - was deliberately left from the historical record by Josephus Flavius - otherwise known as Paul - in place of a magical tale designed to bewitch the masses (like much organised religion in all ages) and spread a light form of Judaism across Europe. The real king Manu was taken down from the cross and later imprisoned in Britain where he could no longer pose a threat to Rome as leader of a revolt that could have made him emperor. Manu incidentally was a teacher and wore a crown of thorns helmet depicted on coins of the period. His confinement in Britain gave rise to legends about Jesus having walked in our green and pleasant lands. He did exactly that.

Not evolve but devolve. For example Noah had on the ark a pair of horse type animals. These two contained combinations of dna that gave rise to all the different types of horse like animal we have today. This is not evolution as the animals are not becoming more advanced than the original but devolution as they have less potential than before. I'm not sure I've explained this very well there is a very good book called "true science agrees with the Bible" that has a chapter dedicated to explaining this. It is entirely plausible that all the different species we have today could have devolved from the number of animals that would have fitted in an ark of the dimensions given in the Bible. Whether or not you believe is up to you but I would suggest that if you look into it properly the evidence supports the Bible as a reliable historical record.

'Often the owners of mobile phones are not even aware that they are being used like this. However, in this case it is clear.'

Father Rajchel claims that the devil and his followers were not shy about using modern technology but that in many cases their actions were not identified as being the work of evil.
One of the text messages, the Austrian Times reported, read: 'She will not come out of this hell. She’s mine. Anyone who prays for her will die.'
He replied, and was then sent another message in return: 'Shut up, preacher. You cannot save yourself. Idiot. You pathetic old preacher.'

Jerry Mungadze and others #fundie dailymail.co.uk

Dr Christian Jessen, the British TV doctor who presents Embarrassing Bodies, tonight goes undercover in an alarming documentary, testing various therapies which claim to 'rid' people of homosexuality.

In the Channel 4 documentary, Undercover Doctor: Cure Me I’m Gay, openly gay Dr Jessen explores the various controversial methods being deployed in the UK and US to ‘cure’ gay patients.

These include 'aversion therapy' in UK and 'gay rehab' in the US.

We see Dr Jessen given bottle of ipecac syrup to drink, to make him vomit for hours while looking at pictures of naked men and listening to tapes telling him he is ‘worthless,’ that being gay was evil and that he should want to have sex with women.

This ‘shock therapy’ used to be deployed by doctors for treating homosexuality, ‘since probably the 1920s, 30, 40s and going on well into the 1970s and 80s,’ Dr Jessen tells Mail Online.

Patients were given injections every two hours which would make them vomit and have diarrhoea.

The theory was that, afterwards, seeing images of naked men or having homosexual thoughts, would cause a physical reaction.

No patients claimed to be cured by this method.

[...]

During ‘right brain therapy,’ Dr Jessen went undercover, posing as ‘Adrian’, a gay man who wanted to be cured.

He visited Jerry Mungadze, an ex-church pastor, who claims to be a doctor. However, as Dr Jessen found out, Mungadze has no medical qualifications beyond a minor degree in psychology.

His ‘right brain therapy,’ which costs $250, claims to spot how gay the patient actually is, and why, by getting them to colour in a drawing of a brain.

Posing as ‘Adrian,’ Dr Jessen did this, with no prior medical consultation from Mungadze, who even admitted to being colour blind.

‘Adrian’ had to describe which part of the drawing he had filled in which colour.

‘He told me the parts I’d drawn in black symbolised all the abuse I’d had as a child,’ says Dr Jessen.

‘Which is odd because I had a happy childhood and a lovely relationship with my parents.’

Unbelievably, we see Mungadze tell ‘Adrian’ that the thyroid gland (the gland located in your neck) and the adrenal gland (located above the kidney) are both located in the brain.

‘What a load of absolute nonsense,’ says Dr Jessen.

‘It’s damaging because people watch his videos and actually think you can retrain the brain.’

Dr Jessen also investigated ‘gay rehab.’

Dr Jessen visits John Smid, who is now openly gay, but for years was married and living in denial.

Smid used to run a rehabilitation programme for gay men before he accepted his sexuality and retired in 2007.

'As with drug or alcohol rehabilitation, the rehab attempts to completely isolate the patient from his addiction,’ explains Dr Jessen.

For $3,000 a month, Smid’s three-month Love In Action programme would ‘take the patient away from anything he deemed gay,’ such as clothes and music.

Smid then talks Dr Jessen through 'gay rehab', as if he were still conducting the course, rifling through his suitcase and discarding anything that might 'cause us to feel sensual or sexual.'

Sorting through Dr Jessen’s CDs, Smid claims that music ‘rises up the senses,’ so he should only listen to ‘Christian music.’

Smid says his Mozart CD would be identified as ‘not Christian,’ and his Adele CD would be seen as equally inappropriate, as the singer is popular within the gay community.

Smid himself now admits: 'I’ve never met a man who experienced a change from homosexual to heterosexual.'

This week, a Christian doctor lost his appeal against dismissal for sending a prayer to his colleagues by email. Consultant paediatrician David Drew thought the 16th century prayer, To Give And Not To Count The Cost, by St Ignatius Loyola, would be motivational.
[...]
Dr Drew claims that his bosses at Walsall Manor Hospital were looking for an excuse to get rid of him because he had consistently accused them of putting patient safety at risk.
He’s almost certainly right, so why did they choose to sack him over his ‘motivational’ email? Simple: they knew that a devout Christian doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of convincing a tribunal that he’s been the victim of religious discrimination.
The corridors of the industrial tribunals system are littered with the corpses of Christians sacrificed on the altar of ‘diversity’.

The specific passages that upset Horalek's daughter involve Frank's discovery of her vagina.

Speaking before a House Energy Subcommittee on Energy and Environment hearing in March, 2009, Shimkus quoted Chapter 8, Verse 22 of the Book of Genesis.

He said: 'As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, will never cease.'

The Illinois Republican continued: 'I believe that is the infallible word of God, and that's the way it is going to be for his creation.

'The earth will end only when God declares its time to be over. Man will not destroy this earth. This earth will not be destroyed by a flood.

He added: 'Today we have about 388 parts per million in the atmosphere. I think in the age of dinosaurs, when we had the most flora and fauna, we were probably at 4,000 parts per million. There is a theological debate that this is a carbon-starved planet — not too much carbon. And the cost of a cap-and-trade on the poor is now being discovered.'

The Republican is a vocal opponent to President Obama's American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 - the so-called 'cap-and-trade' Bill, aimed at limiting carbon emissions.

The Bill passed the House of Representatives last year, but has yet to pass the Senate.

There are also sites that say that earth was populated by humans from different planets after the time of the Neanderthals, ie: Not evolution at all, we didn't rise from monkeys, we were made as we were and brought here to replace the Neanderthals who were 2nd density beings.

As we are 3rd density beings we will only ever be able to witness 3rd density beings on other planets... who frankly will be as dangerous as the majority of the human population and probably just as intent on blowing themselves up anyway.

The remainder of the planets are populated by beings we cannot see and never will see from our perspective, just as we will never hear all a dog hears as it is not in our range.

It doesn't really matter what these scientists say about the age of a fossil. 'it must have fossilised very quickly' or 'it took millions of years'.
They age fossils from the rocks that they are in. And they age rocks from the fossils they contain.
Scientists say what they want about the age of fossils. As long as it suits their religion that it all occurred by pure chance, and for that faith they need very long time periods.
How is it that there are so many creatures alive today which are also found in the fossil record?

He said: 'If a man likes another man, it can happen, but if you go on to fulfil your desire, if it is proved, then there is a punishment to follow. You don't stone to death unless there are four eyewitnesses. It is a very stringent procedure.
'There are some people who are attracted to donkeys but that does not mean it is right.'

As a computer programmer with over twenty-five years experience, i know a little bit about logic.Because of this, i can say most definitely that there IS a god.
The guy dawkins is living proof that a university education is no barrier to making yourself into an absolute pratt - in fact ,paradoxically, it may be a positive help.

Think of the air we breathe, and the liquid called water which we use to drink, wash, bathe and clease ourselves with. And these are only a few examples of the ways in which this this miraculous - yes miraculous- subsance is utilised.

To get closer to god, just open your eyes and ears to the miracle of creation.
Our blessed lord showed us many signs of the miraculous power that the creator has at his disposal.
Jesus said: "seek and you shall find, ask and you shall receive, knock and the door will be opened to you".
Listen to the word of the lord and have complete faith in HIM, not a silly attention-seeker who looks more foolish each time he speaks

Atheists are illogical. If there is no god, why do they need to try to prove it.

There are, by the way, three classical arguments for the existence of god - ontologyical, teleological and cosmological; there isn't one for the non-existence.

Of course, a lot depends on the definition of god.

This is bunkum!

We have not "evolved" from anything we were created and not by the God of our misguided religions.

Darwin was wrong as the entire concept of intermediary steps in evolution is fundamentally flawed as the changes would have initally been defects hindering the host and its elimination via natural selection.

Stop misinterpreting similarities as genetic ancestry and accept that whilst all life shares similar building-block we are not related.

"Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Government backed study has revealed.

It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.

There is also resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades - where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem - because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

The findings have prompted claims that some schools are using history 'as a vehicle for promoting political correctness'.

The study, funded by the Department for Education and Skills, looked into 'emotive and controversial' history teaching in primary and secondary schools.

It found some teachers are dropping courses covering the Holocaust at the earliest opportunity over fears Muslim pupils might express anti-Semitic and anti-Israel reactions in class."

Yes, scientists can talk about how life evolves, but no-one - and I mean absolutely NO-ONE - can tell us how life is CREATED except GOD.

Let's clear up one big misconception about Darwin. HE WAS NOT A SCIENTIST!!!! If you could resurrect him from the grave and give him a high school science test he could not pass it.

Charles Darwin formulated his theory a few months after graduating from Ministry School. He was trained to be a Christian Preacher and Pastor. See how the brilliant modern scientists have "evolved"? Would they believe a scientific theory formulated by a Christian Pastor in this day and age? I think not.

And the guy who conceived of the Geologic Column that these brilliant scientists use to date things was a LAWYER. He cooked up that little fairy tale about 1830 A.D.

I think we're lied to about a number of things.

We see other towers of the same kind being hit by planes. Are they burned? They [sic] was a tower, I believe it was in Spain, which burnt for 24 hours. It never collapsed. None of these towers collapsed. And there [in New York], in a few minutes, the whole thing collapsed.

It was a money-sucker because they were finished, it seems to me, by 1973, and to re-cable all that, to bring up-to-date all the technology and everything, it was a lot more expensive, that work, than destroying them.

Did a man really walk on the Moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered. And in any case I don't believe all they tell me, that's for sure.
