    The Weekly Dish ^ | October 16, 2020 | Andrew Sullivan
    A question I’ve wrestled with this past year or so is a pretty basic one: if critical race/gender/queer theory is unfalsifiable postmodern claptrap, as I have long contended, how has it conquered so many institutions so swiftly? It’s been a staggering achievement, when you come to think of it. Critical theory was once an esoteric academic pursuit. Now it has become the core, underlying philosophy of the majority of American cultural institutions, universities, media, corporations, liberal churches, NGOs, philanthropies, and, of course, mainstream journalism. This summer felt like a psychic break from old-school liberalism, a moment when a big part...

    ROME (Reuters) – Pope Francis says in a new film released on Wednesday that homosexuals should be protected by civil union laws, in some of the clearest language he has used on the rights of gay people. “Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it,” he says in the documentary “Francesco” by Oscar-nominated director Evgeny Afineevsky. “What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered. I stood up...

    The town of Fermoy in County Cork has cut ties with its Polish twin, Nowa Dęba, over a motion opposing “LGBT ideology”. All six councillors in Fermoy voted to sever the town’s 14-year relationship with the eastern Polish town, which had included exchange visits and cultural events, said Councillor Noel McCarthy who proposed the vote. “We terminated because we felt that their local authority had discriminated against the LGBT community,” Mr. McCarthy said, referring to a motion passed by Nowa Dęba in 2019. […] Nowa Dęba’s 2019 resolution pledged to “defend our tradition, culture and religion against aggressive, deceptive and...

    Now the Admin Mods may Zot me or not, but if my words are heard by just one of my FRiends it will have been worthwhile. The stock and trade of the Democrat party is to convince each other that they are smarter than you, or I. This at the core of their beliefs: they are, in their minds, simply smarter. More enlightened. Naturally, they say, a baby should wince and scream, silently, in pain, as the scissors penetrate the neck. This is the celebration of womanhood for so many sad, single lesbians and their cats. Grades in school, of...

    President Trump, whose Middle East plan is winning support from Arab nations, is gaining strong support from Muslim leaders and their followers who believe that the Democrats haven't delivered on years of promises, according to a new survey of Islamic leaders. In a shocking turnaround, 61.48% of the 109 Muslim leaders who “represent two million voters” plan to vote for Trump. That is a slight edge over their 2012 vote for Barack Obama. The survey of the leaders was done by the Washington correspondent for Aksam Gazetesi, a Turkish news site. It suggested that the Muslim leaders' support for former...

    American journalist Michelle Kosinski responded to an allegation that she had an affair with Kim Darroch, the former British ambassador to the U.S., who was reportedly being probed over the fears of passing on classified White House information to her.On Friday, Kosinski dismissed the allegation calling her linking with Darroch as "nonsense" and "incorrect information." The Sun U.S. reported on Thursday that Darroch, who is married, had a "passionate affair" with Kosinski that lasted several months. At the time, she worked with CNN as a White House correspondent.

    Chances are you’ve already made up your mind about whom to vote for as we decide who’s going to be the next president of the United States. You probably are also aware there’s no way The Hartford Courant or most any other newspaper is going to endorse Republican Donald Trump for reelection. There are many reasons for that, and we’re not going to go into them in great detail here. If you are voting for Democrat Joe Biden, you know what they are. If you’re voting for Trump, you probably don’t care. But there is one issue that demands a...

    Federal prosecutors are alleging that a Netflix star who campaigned for Joe Biden committed a multitude of sex crimes against underage boys, in one incident assaulting a 15-year old boy in a public bathroom. Jerry Harris is being charged with assaulting ten boys, and prosecutors are arguing that he “exhibits all the signs of a serial child predator” who either “wanted to be caught or he simply cannot control his impulses.” Harris is most known for his appearance in Netflix’s Cheer documentary about competitive cheerleading. He recently appeared in a digital campaign event with Joe Biden, in which the Democratic...

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman is at it again. He’s promoting a conspiracy theory that libertarian billionaire Charles Koch wants U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett to — wait for it — destroy the planet. Sounds like Krugman may have been watching too much Star Wars. Promoting a Times article headlined, “Charles Koch’s Big Bet on Barrett,” Krugman tweeted: “This analysis got somewhat lost in the shuffle, but Charles Koch is going big for Barrett — not bc he hopes she'll destroy Roe or the ACA, but because he hopes she'll destroy the planet.”
  • Why does Facebook discriminate against gays? Why does it put them in a special class, telling them they must remain gay even if they want to change?

    Why does Facebook treat gays unfairly? Why does it put them in a special class, telling them they must remain gay even if they want to change? Why does Facebook suppress the stories of those who have changed – and are much happier for it – rather than give them the space to choose for themselves? You might say, “Are you crazy? You have this all wrong. Facebook is standing with the gay community, protecting them from hate speech and exposing ‘conversion therapy’ as dangerous. That’s why Facebook has removed the pages of so-called ‘ex-gay’ organizations.” Of course, I’m quite...

    Climate change has spurred close to a doubling of natural disasters in the last 20 years, and world leaders are failing to prevent Earth from evolving into “an uninhabitable hell” for millions, the United Nations warned on Monday. At least 7,348 major disasters had occurred between 2000 and 2019, claiming 1.23 million lives, affecting 4.2 billion people and costing the global economy some $2.97 trillion, the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction said in a new report entitled “The Human Cost of Disasters 2000-2019.” According to the Geneva-based agency, the last two decades saw the number of disasters caused by...

Leahy also accused Barrett of hurting women and gays. Again, she is not even on the court yet! And for some reason he brought out a photo of Smokey the Bear… So is Amy Comey Barrett an arsonist, too?

    Axios ^ | Sun., Oct. 11, 2020 | Buzz grows around Cuomo as Biden's attorney general pick
    Democrats are so convinced that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo could be considered for Joe Biden's attorney general that aides at the National Governors Association, which Cuomo chairs, are looking into contingencies for replacing him, two sources familiar with the situation tell Axios. What we're hearing: Some Democratic donors in Cuomo's orbit tell Axios that the governor is being pushed for the job and that Biden would consider him, based on their long friendship. Why it matters: The AG would be among the most politically sensitive — and high-profile — jobs in a Biden administration. The Justice Department will face...

    The NFL is set to celebrate the LGBTQ community’s “National Coming Out Day” during its Sunday Night Football broadcast this weekend. The campaign, labeled “It Takes All Of Us,” will feature a 30-second video starring openly gay or bisexual NFL players including Ryan O’Callaghan, Jeff Rohrer, R.K. Russell, and Wade Davis. The ad encourages gays to come out and be proud of their sexual proclivities, according to CNN. The video starts with the aforementioned players saying, “To all current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we.” The ad then segues to other players...

    Many young people are leaving the Church today because Christianity has become too judgmental and alienating for them, said lifelong Methodist and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton made the comment while interviewing social justice advocate and Pastor William J. Barber II of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, last week on her “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” podcast. During the podcast, she argued that "black lives matter" is a “theological statement.” The Church in America, she suggested, needs to “take a hard look at itself and try to figure out how it can be a...
