Unnamed murderers #fundie #homophobia #psycho dailymail.co.uk

A gay Iranian man has been reportedly beheaded by his brother and two cousins after they discovered he had been exempted from military service due to his sexuality.

Alireza Fazeli Monfared, 20, was allegedly taken by the three male members of his family to the village of Borumi, western Iran, and murdered.

Afterwards, the three killers allegedly called Alireza's mother to tell them they had 'finished him off'.

Alireza had applied for an exception from the compulsory Iranian military service for being gay so that he could leave the country and move to Turkey to live with his partner Aghil Abyat, according to 6Rang, the Iranian Lesbian and Transgender Network.

But when the exception card arrived at his home in the city of Ahvaz, Alireza was not home and instead his half-brother is said to have discovered his sexual orientation after finding the card.

At 7pm on Tuesday Alireza spoke to his mother on the phone for the last time, Abyat told IranWire.

Shortly afterwards, his half-brother arrived at Alireza's home and said their father needed to see him and drove him to Borumi during the night.

It was here that his sibling and two male cousins allegedly murdered and beheaded Alireza, before dumping his body by a palm tree.

'There was no news of him until Wednesday, when Alireza's stepbrother called his mother and told her: 'We've finished him off',' Abyat said.

'In other works, he confessed to murdering Alireza,' Abyat claimed. 'They found his body under some palm trees. It's now with the medical examiner and his mother has been hospitalised because of the shock.'

Three men - believed to be Alireza's half-brother and two cousins by Iranian media - were arrested and they are facing trial for the murder.

In Iran, homosexuality is punishable by execution. It is thought that thousands of gays have been executed in the country since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

As a result, homosexuals are often targeted in 'honour killings' as their families believe they have brought shame to them.

A 2020 6Rang report found that six in 10 gay people in Iran have been assaulted by members of their family, while almost 50 per cent have been publicly sexually assaulted.

'Nobody should trust Wikipedia,' its co-founder warns: Larry Sanger says site has been taken over by left-wing 'volunteers' who write off sources that don't fit their agenda as fake news

Larry Sanger, 53, co-founded Wikipedia with Jimmy Wales in 2001

He said site has been taken over by Democratic-supporting volunteer editors

Sanger said left-leaning editors do not allow Wikipedia users to edit pages

He mentioned the Wikipedia entry on Joe Biden as example of leftist bias

Biden entry doesn't make mention of scandals and Hunter Biden laptop

He said he agreed with the assessment that ‘teams of Democratic-leaning volunteers’ remove content that isn’t to their liking, including information about scandals linked to President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

When asked by Unherd.com if Wikipedia can be trusted, he replied: ‘You can trust it to give a reliably establishment point of view on pretty much everything.

Sanger cited the entry on Joe Biden, which he says is a sanitized version that doesn’t include arguments from a GOP perspective.

‘The Biden article, if you look at it, has very little by way of the concerns that Republicans have had about him,’ Sanger said.

‘So if you want to have anything remotely resembling the Republican point of view about Biden, you’re not going to get it from the article.

‘And there is a paragraph about the Ukraine scandal.’

‘Very little of that can be found in Wikipedia.’

Sanger added: ‘What little can be found is extremely biased and reads like a defense counsel’s brief, really. If only one version of the facts is allowed then that gives a huge incentive to wealthy and powerful people to seize control of things like Wikipedia in order to shore up their power.

The Joe Biden entry on Wikipedia also makes no mention of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Even when Tony Bobulinski, Hunter's business partner, went on Trump-supporting Fox News to confirm he had emails verifying those on the laptop, the story was largely ignored.

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.'

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.

Donald Trump #fundie dailymail.co.uk

Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that gun-rights proponents might take action to defend the Second Amendment from a liberal Supreme Court if Hillary Clinton were elected president – and was immediately accused of inciting an assassination attempt against her.

'Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment,' Trump said, repeating a frequent claim he makes on the campaign trail.

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

Then without explanation he added: 'Although, the Second Amendment people – maybe there is. I don't know. But I tell you what: That would be a horrible day if – if Hillary gets to put her judges in.'

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.'

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.

I am sick of hearing Gays wanting the same rights as hetrosexuals. Hetrosexuals are a mix of a man and a woman and can produce chidren. Gays are not a mix, they are the same sex and can't produce children within their union and commitment to their partner. Surely a civil union is all they need, after all the bible says 'Man should not lie with man' so churches should not marry them.

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.

Mike Bickle #fundie dailymail.co.uk

The leader of an evangelical Christian group has sparked outrage after branding Oprah Winfrey 'the Antichrist'.
Mike Bickle, 55, who is head of the International House of Prayer (IHOP), made the controversial statement in a film which was released earlier this week by People for the American Way Right Wing Watch and aired on God TV.
He called the 57-year-old star a 'forerunner to the Harlot movement' and 'utterly deceived' in the warning to his followers.
He said: 'I believe that one of the main pastors, as a forerunner to the Harlot movement, it’s not the Harlot movement yet, is Oprah.
'She is winsome, she is kind, she is reasonable, she is utterly deceived, utterly deceived.
'A classy woman, a cool woman, a charming woman, but has a spirit of deception and she is one of the clear pastors, forerunners to the Harlot movement.'
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.

Gail Horalek #fundie dailymail.co.uk

A Michigan parent wants parts of Anne Frank's prolific diary banned from her daughter's classroom.

Gail Horalek of Northville is upset over Frank's references to her own genitalia in the diary. She says the passages made her daughter uncomfortable and that the school should have requested parental permission before assigning it to students, Patch.com reported.

'It's pretty graphic, and it's pretty pornographic for seventh-grade boys and girls to be reading,' Horalek told the Detroit's Fox affiliate. 'It's inappropriate for a teacher to be giving this material out to the kids when its really the parents' job to give the students this information.'

Horalek is referring to an unabridged version of the diary titled 'Anne Frank: The Diary of Young Girl (The Definitive Edition).'

The version includes passages which had been omitted by Frank's father, Otto Frank, in the first version of the diary that was published in 1947.

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

'There are little folds of skin all over the place, you can hardly find it,' the passage reads. 'The little hole underneath is so terribly small that I simply can't imagine how a man can get in there, let alone how a whole baby can get out!'

Ayatollah Mohammed Asef Mohseni #fundie dailymail.co.uk

A new Afghan law that has drawn Western condemnation for restricting women's rights does not allow marital rape as its critics claim, but lets men refuse to feed wives who deny them sex, the cleric behind it says.

Ayatollah Mohammed Asef Mohseni's Shi'ite personal status law sparked controversy abroad because of a provision that 'a wife is obliged to fulfil the sexual desires of her husband'.

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."

Donald Trump #fundie dailymail.co.uk

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.

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.

Robert Dear #fundie dailymail.co.uk

The recluse accused of killing three people and wounding nine in an attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado posted ranted about the apocalypse and posted Biblical passages online - while also seeking sadomasochistic sex.

...Since his 2000 divorce, Dear seems to have become a loner who lived a quiet life - but he appears to have been much more aggressive online - seeking bondage and sadomasochistic sex online and companions to smoke marijuana with.

He also appears to have posted a series of Biblical ramblings on the message boards of Cannabis.com ten years ago under a username apparently linked to Dear.

The New York Daily News reported that, in December 2005, the user posted 'aids, hurricanes, we are in the end times' and 'accept the LORD JESUS while you can.'


A week later, he apparently wrote: 'A FOOL HATH SAID IN HIS HEART THERE IS NO GOD. PROVERBS.'

Another post reportedly said: 'God made us so he can kill who he wants... the lord giveth the lord taketh away.'

And in October 2005, the user posted: 'WAKE UP SINNERS U CANT SAVE YOURSELF U WILL DIE AN WORMS SHALL EAT YOUR FLESH , NOW YOUR SOUL IS GOING SOMEWHERE'

... She [his ex-wife] said he was not a regular church goer, but he was religious.

'He believed wholeheartedly in the Bible,' she said, adding that he was never fixated on the book.

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".

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.'

(about Yoga in School) "Typical - scrap school prayers and anything else to do with Christian ethics. Instead, have the children indulge pagan mysticism. Why is it that we scrap the aforementioned traditions that has helped our nation advance tremendously and turn to an impoverished practice from a backward part of the world?"

[comment under a Daily Mail screed about the intolerance of atheists in the UK]

We now have some of the names of the left-liberal elite who seek to undermine and vilify the values of our country. Unsurprisingly. many are academics or broadcasters. We should seek to remove their state-funded influence. Universities who employ them should be required, under penalty of a reduction in state funding, to dismiss them and remove their professorial titles. The BBC should similarly be required to omit them from the broadcasting schedules, or face a reduction in license fees. The individuals would, of course, be free to broadcast on commercial networks.

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'.

Paul Hellyer #conspiracy dailymail.co.uk

A former Canadian defense minister has declared on Russian TV that not only do aliens already walk amongst us but they are refusing to share their advanced technologies until we change our warring and polluting ways.

According to Paul Hellyer, who was a Liberal defense minister from 1963 to 1967 under prime minister Lester B. Pearson, there are 80 different species of extra-terrestrials.

Some of whom ‘look just like us and they could walk down the street and you wouldn’t know if you walked past one, ’ he told Russia Today’s program SophieCo on Saturday.

...

‘I would say that nearly all are benign and benevolent and they do want to help us, there may be one or two species which do not,’ he said.

Hellyer, 90, first went public with his belief in aliens on earth in 2005 and he is the first high ranking politician to publicly state that aliens are real.

Healing On The Streets #fundie dailymail.co.uk

A Christian group has been banned from claiming it can heal people after complaints to the advertising watchdog.
Healing on the Streets - Bath (HOTS) stages regular sessions outside the city’s abbey and says 'scores of people' have been 'physically healed' as a result of its work.

But Christians have reacted furiously to the decision, saying the ASA is trying to ban the 'basic Christian belief that God can heal illness'.
The watchdog has now told HOTS not to make claims which stated or implied that, by receiving prayer from their volunteers, people could be healed of medical conditions.

HOTS, who base themselves outside the Abbey, pictured, has reacted angrily to the decision and confirmed it will appeal against the findings
It was also ruled that the group should not refer to medical conditions in their adverts 'for which medical supervision should be sought'.
HOTS has reacted angrily to the decision and confirmed it will appeal against the findings.
In a statement, the group said: "It seems very odd to us that the ASA wants to prevent us from stating on our website the basic Christian belief that God can heal illness."

It is hard to see God when you have your back towards him and are constantly running away. Atheist are some of the most ridiculous people in the world.

Anjem Choudary, the firebrand cleric who wants to see Britain ruled by Sharia law, said such a regime was the only way to fix the country's ills.

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.

"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.

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.

The persecution of practising Christians in Britain has been a recurring theme of this column.
Publicly-funded bodies seem to take a perverse delight in targeting staff with a strong Christian faith.
‘Celebrating diversity’ is our new State religion. We must accommodate all beliefs and, in the case of extremist Islam, tolerate practices which most people in this country find alien and abhorrent.
If you’re Muslim, special prayer rooms will be set aside for you. Hospital canteens will force everyone to eat halal meat. Feel free to wear the veil, madam. If you’re a Pagan, you’ll be granted time off work to celebrate the Summer Solstice.
But if you’re Christian, you praise the Lord at your peril. Take that crucifix off now, or find another job.
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’.
Members of tribunals are trained to be concerned only with upholding the rights of perceived ‘persecuted minorities’. Their verdicts are guided by the doctrines of ‘sexism’, ‘racism’ and a litany of fashionable ‘phobias’.
Adherents of ‘minority’ religions will always get the benefit of the doubt. But Christians are on a hiding to nothing, since they represent the ‘oppressors

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.

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?

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.'

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?

There is nothing that women can do that men cannot do better except one , having a kid , but they cant do that without men so which is the better sex . Hypocrisy is a ingrained in humans but the females of the species take it to a whole new level.If true equality were possible the women should compete on a level playing field but their idea of " equality " is based on them having an advantage before they start.
