    A US fast-food chain will cease trading at its first UK outlet amid a row over donations to anti-LGBT groups. Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October. A spokeswoman for the centre said "the right thing to do" was to not extend the restaurant's lease beyond the "six-month pilot period". Chick-fil-A said its donations were purely focused on youth and education. The family-owned company, founded in Atlanta in 1967, is one of the biggest fast-food chains in the USA and boasts about 2,400...

    Kellogg's has launched an LGBTQ-themed cereal — "All Together" — to promote diversity and acceptance "no matter who you love." The $19.99 special edition box includes six individual packages, each of which contains Corn Flakes, Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes, Frosted Mini Wheats, Raisin Bran, and Rice Krispies. The company said "All Together" is "a symbol of acceptance no matter how you look, where you're from or who you love." Kellogg's also noted that it became an official partner of GLAAD to celebrate Spirit Day, "the largest most visible anti-bullying campaign in the world where millions wear purple to stand up...

    Metropolitan Community Church of Rehoboth will host a program entitled Homosexuality and the Bible, an In-Depth Study, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 26. This seminar will show that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality. For better understanding of scripture, participants will look at writings of ancient scrolls though the influences of Middle Eastern traditions, Hebrew traditions, Greek and Roman traditions and early Christian situations. Attendees also will look at the difference between translation and interpretation, the difference between historical-critical reading and literal reading, defining sexuality and spirituality, the danger of picking and choosing scripture passages and the...

    BOONSBORO, Md. (AP) — Authorities say an HIV-positive man has been charged with raping a boy on the Appalachian Trail in western Maryland. The Herald-Mail reports that 43-year-old Jason Henry Cochrane of Millersville is charged with sex abuse of a minor, second-degree rape and other counts in Washington County. A judge earlier this week ordered Cochrane held without bond while he awaits trial. Maryland Natural Resources Police said in court documents that officers were called Saturday morning to the Pine Knob Shelter on the Appalachian Trail near the border with Frederick County.

    No tension, no dread, no sense of peril, no suspense… Pennywise, the most incompetent killer clown in movie history, returns for It: Chapter 2, which isn’t very good, but at least it’s long. Oh, man, is this sucker long; just a few minutes shy of three hours, and you feel every minute of it. Length is not necessarily a problem, not even when it comes to It. Stephen King’s 1986 novel is close to 1200 pages and plenty engrossing. The 1990 television miniseries is over three hours (it was originally broadcast over two nights), and while it’s not scary, Tim...

    Vice President Pence was greeted by a series of rainbow flags this week as he arrived in Reykjavik to meet with President Guðni Jóhannesson of Iceland. Pence met with Jóhannesson on Wednesday at Hofdi House, across the street from the IT company Advania, which had lined its entrance with several rainbow flags, according to The Guardian. And a nearby office housing the headquarters for the Efling trade union swapped out the flags typically flying outside to display rainbow ones. “We just felt the need to celebrate diversity today and wanted to show that by flying the flags,” Ægir Már Þórisson,...

    In May the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives passed sweeping new civil rights protections for LGBT Americans. The Republican-controlled Senate has yet to act, however, and supporters of the legislation - including pop star Taylor Swift - are getting frustrated. The Equality Act, as it's called, expands workplace, education and public accommodation protections that currently prohibit discrimination based on race, gender and disability to include sexual preference and gender identity. The federal law would nationalise legal safeguards that are currently afforded to varying extent in only 22 states and the District of Columbia. In the remaining states, it is legal for...

The ads were displayed in the capital Budapest on train stations and bus stops. Over 40,000 protestors signed a CitizenGO petition asking the mayor of Budapest and other authorities...

    A bus driver has been suspended after refusing to drive a vehicle which celebrated gay pride. Passenger Rebecca Sears, 19, claimed a Konectbus driver at Norwich Bus Station insisted on swapping buses as the one he was in 'promoted homosexuality'. She said that the driver, who appeared to be in his 50s with grey hair, was referring to the vehicle's service number which featured the colours of the gay-pride rainbow flag. Rebecca said: 'He said we have to wait a minute, he said I am not driving this bus because it promotes homosexuality. 'I was standing with two other women...

    The Land of Lincoln will require public schools to incorporate LGBTQ figures into history lessons. Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Friday signed House Bill 246, which mandates the following: “In public schools only, the teaching of history shall include a study of the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State.” The bill, introduced by Rep. Anna Moeller, will go into effect in July. “THNX Gov.

    Super Happy Fun America has had their PayPal account permanently limited, meaning they can no longer use PayPal services, can no longer take donations, and can no longer open or use any new PayPal accounts. Essentially, they’re being deplatformed to the point where they can’t even maintain financial stability.

The e-mail was posted in full, which you can read below. If you’re unable to read the message,...

    Only in Clown World is it possible for big corporations to label heterosexuality as “gross”. Yes, the very thing that allowed them to type out those words in an e-mail, and gave them an opportunity at living a life in the waking world is “gross” for some people, but that’s just the way it is in an era of insanity. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m talking about Netflix’s response to the Straight Pride Parade group known as Super Happy Fun America. Recently the company posted up a tweet on July 26th, 2019 with an image revealing...

    The wildly-popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, previously one of Hollywood’s last bastions of entertainment that stayed mostly above the political and cultural fray, dipped its toe in LGBT “representation” with April’s Avengers: Endgame, and is slated to introduce a lesbian subplot with the next sequel for one of the team’s founding superheroes, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Marvel Studios announced its next two years’ worth of films and streaming series this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, concluding with Thor: Love and Thunder in November 2021. The film will see Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) continue as ruler of the titular hero’s surviving Asgardian...

    Israeli Education Minister Rafi Peretz has said he believes so-called "gay conversion therapy" can work, triggering widespread condemnation. "I think it's possible," Mr Peretz, an Orthodox rabbi, told Israel's Channel 12 TV channel. He added that he had "a very deep familiarity with the issue". PM Benjamin Netanyahu said such remarks were "unacceptable". Other politicians and gay groups also voiced criticism. "Gay conversion therapy" has been widely discredited around the world. The practice attempts to change an individual's sexual orientation through psychological, spiritual and sometimes physical means. What did Mr Peretz say?"I think that it is possible to convert [someone's...

    An American organization called One million Moms has started a campaign in order to protest a 'lesbian' scene that was present in the movie. Also, the group of mothers has accused Disney of choosing ‘to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment’, and have advised the Mouse House that they should stick to entertainment, rather than pushing an agenda and exposing children to controversial topics. This scene has caused enough outrage among the members of the organization that they have started a petition against Disney and has gained 12,555 signatures. According to the petition, the members believe they have been...

    British M.P.s passed amendments Tuesday to legalize abortion and homosexual “marriage” in Northern Ireland if the devolved Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont is not restored by October 21.
