Customs officers #fundie thegailygrind.com

A Canadian man was twice unable to enter the U.S. after a customs agent read his Scruff profile.

The 30-year-old Vancouver man, André, was going to visit his boyfriend in New Orleans in October when he was selected for secondary inspection while going through customs. An officer then took his phone and computer and demanded the passwords for several apps.

“I didn’t know what to do. I was scared, so I gave them the password and then I sat there for at least an hour or two. I missed my flight,” André told Daily Xtra. “He came back and just started grilling me. ‘Is this your email?’ and it was an email attached to a Craigslist account for sex ads. He asked me, ‘Is this your account on Scruff? Is this you on BBRT?’ I was like, ‘Yes, this is me.'” BBRT is a barebacking hook-up site.

When the officer found a description in André’s profile that said he was “looking for loads”, he assumed it meant he was a sex worker looking for “loads” of money.

“I could tell just by his nature that he had no intentions of letting me through. They were just going to keep asking me questions looking for something,” explained André. “So I asked for the interrogation to stop. I asked if I go back to Canada am I barred for life? He said no, so I accepted that offer.”

But a month later when he tried to fly to New Orleans again and brought plenty of proof to show he wasn’t a sex worker (i.e. pay stubs, letters from his employer, etc.), he was denied entry again after customs officials found it suspicious that he had cleared his browser history and wiped his phone of dating apps.

“They went through my computer. They were looking through Word documents,” he recalled. “I had nude photos of myself on my phone, and they were questioning who this person was. It was really humiliating and embarrassing.”

“They said, ‘Next time you come through, don’t have a cleared phone,’ and that was it. I wasn’t let through. He said I’m a suspected escort. You can’t really argue with them because you’re trapped.”

André says he has lost nearly $1,000 USD on non-refundable flight and hotel costs because of the incidents.

Itaberli Lozano #fundie thegailygrind.com

A woman in Brazil has confessed to stabbing her teenage son to death because she couldn’t accept that he was gay.

According to local media reports, Tatiana Lozano Pereira, lured her 17-year-old son to the family home after a heated argument on Christmas Eve.

Once inside the house, Itaberli Lozano was ambushed by his mother and two thugs she had hired to beat her son up to “teach him a lesson.”

Halfway through the beating, Pereira changed her mind and ordered the men to kill her son.

When they refused her orders, she took a kitchen knife and stabbed him herself.

Lozano Pereira, 32, told police that she and her husband removed the body from the house, the boy’s stepfather. They took his lifeless body to a cane field where they burned it.

The young boy’s charred body was found on January 7.

FOX reports:

"The mother reportedly admitted her part in the crime during the first interrogation, naming also the two men she had hired for the beating. Her husband was charged for his collaboration in disposing of the boy’s body.

According to his uncle Dario Rosa and other relatives, Lozano had long been rejected by his mother for his sexual orientation."

Spiritual Science Research Foundation #fundie thegailygrind.com

Just when you think you’ve heard all possible (and, frankly, impossible) justifications for homosexuality, you realize there’s one more: ghosts. Yup! A paranormal organization is claiming that the vast majority of gay men and women aren’t actually gay – they’re just possessed by someone of the opposite sex.

According to the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SRF), 85 percent of all gay men are possessed by female ghosts, causing them to be attracted to other men. Lesbians are, you guessed it, possessed by males ghosts.

“The main reason behind the gay orientation of some men is that they are possessed by female ghosts. It is the female ghost in them that is attracted to other men,” claims the group on Twitter.

The SRF cite “spiritual research” as proving that “the cause for homosexual preferences lie predominantly in the spiritual realm.”

Here’s how the group breaks down the remaining 15 percent:

* Only five percent are gay due to “hormonal changes”;

* And 10 percent are considered gay because they had “an experience with a person of the same sex as a teenager or young adult that was pleasurable”

Nonetheless, the group believes ghosts overpower the majority of homosexuals. “The ghost’s consciousness overpowers the person’s normal behavior to produce the homosexual attraction,” states their website.

Just in case there’s any doubt that there’s more to this than just science or a genuine belief in the paranormal, here’s what the SRF had to say about gay pride parades:

"Organizing such Parades in the name of human rights and freedom does not indicate that society is progressing. In fact, this evidences its decline. The human race needs to know what is right and what is wrong. Just as we teach children not to play in dirty water or eat mud, we need to educate society what is correct from a spiritual perspective. By failing to do so, we run the risk of a further decline in Righteousness and consequently people in society will become more unhappy."
