    Uganda's progress in tackling HIV is in "grave jeopardy" after the president approved tough new anti-homosexuality legislation, the UN and US have warned. An increasing number of people are being discouraged from seeking vital health services for fear of attacks and punishment. President Yoweri Museveni signed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill into law after parliament watered it down. It is still among the harshest anti-LGBTQ laws in the world. Homosexual acts are already illegal in Uganda but now anyone convicted faces imprisonment. The legislation imposes the death penalty for so-called aggravated cases, which include having gay sex with someone below the age...

    Target has lost more than $10billion in market capitalization in the span of 10 days - as it continues to face backlash for Pride-themed merchandise. Prior to the controversy - which stems over a LGBTQ-geared clothing campaign that touts 'tuck-friendly' bathing suits and pro-trans T-shirts for kids - Target shares were trading at $160.96, giving the retailer a market valuation of roughly $74.3billion. By the time The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) closed Friday, the blue-chip stock was trading at $138.93 - marking a market valuation of 64,2billion, and loss of $10.1billion. The sum, moreover, stands as the superstore's lowest...

    At least five Targets in multiple states received bomb threats Friday over company executives pulling the Pride collection section because of mounting boycotts, leading to multiple stores being evacuated as police and the FBI searched for explosive devices.

    Did you know that Jesus Christ was a racist? In a TikTok video, Reverend Brandan Robertson asserts that the Son of God used a racial slur. Robertson is an author, activist, public theologian, and the pastor of Missiongathering Christian Church in San Diego, California. This racist action supposedly takes place in Chapter 7 of the Gospel of Mark, when Jesus is sought out by a Syrophoenician woman in the district of Tyre. She begs Jesus to free her daughter from the demon that is possessing her. Robertson said that Jesus replied, “It’s not good for Me to give the children’s...

    So-called “pride” clothing for kids from a transgender designer who sells Satan-themed products? Where did all of this come from? Clearly, American corporations are transmission belts for satanism and communism. But the communists exported Cultural Marxism to the United States. Many conservatives do not understand this.

    MEXICO CITY (AP) - Enrique Salinas, the youngest brother of former Mexican president Carlos Salinas de Gortari, was found dead in a car on the outskirts of Mexico City on Monday, with a plastic bag tied over his head in an apparent murder, officials said. Authorities said there indications that Salinas had been killed as part of an attempt to extort him or get information out of him. "Generally, if you put a bag over someone's head, you're often not trying to kill them, but rather extort them or get some information out of them," said Alfonso Navarrete Prida, the...

    As RedState’s been noting, normal people are waking to the social carnage wrought by the Sex & Death Left. They don’t like people sexualizing their kids or turning every public event into a ritual of woke political theater. Bud Light is learning it, Target is learning it, and hopefully, the Dodgers might be catching on soon.They will if CatholicVote has anything to do with it. The group has sent a public letter to L.A. Dodgers owner Mark Walter and CEO Stan Kasten announcing a boycott of the team to be publicized by a $1 million ad campaign.At issue, of course,...

    One of the left’s favorite canards when it comes to the LGBTQ (and sometimes Y) cult is to accuse anyone who doesn’t fall totally in line with the Pride revolution of being afraid of gays, lesbians, and transgender people. “Homophobic!” and “Transphobic!” are the epithets we hear all the time, even though there’s no credible evidence to believe that anyone who believes in the traditional gender ethic is scared of anybody. Even though we’re used to the melodrama of the left, the whole “phobia” thing is particularly egregious because a phobia is an irrational fear. Here’s how Psycom Pro explains...

    I truly love baseball. But more than baseball, I love God. Given the decision between being a fan of any sports team and supporting my religious beliefs, I know that God is my real captain and I will always choose my faith. And I believe that when push comes to shove, most people feel the same. I also recognize that it is my religious obligation to support other people of faith in their journey. Which is why I am so sad that I will not be attending baseball games thanks to the irresponsible management of the Los Angeles Dodgers and...

    California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Tuesday slammed Target’s chief executive for pulling LGBTQ and Pride Month merchandise off of store shelves after facing backlash and threats of violence from some customers. “CEO of Target Brian Cornell selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile in courage. This isn’t just a couple stores in the South. There is a systematic attack on the gay community happening across the country,” Newsom wrote in a tweet Tuesday night. “Wake up America. This doesn’t stop here. You’re black? You’re Asian? You’re Jewish? You’re a woman? You’re next,” the California governor...

    You'd think Target would have learned its lesson.Back in 2006, I wrote an editorial at Investor's Business Daily criticizing its wokester Che Guevara merchandise selection, prompting the company to pull the merchandise nationally.The Reuters photo of what happened is here. If that wasn't enough for them, and the old corporate memory is gone, there are numerous cases of "go woke, go broke" among other corporations that tried to foist woke merchandise on the public, culminating in the Bud Light fiasco, which could have reminded them. Or, they could have checked out what was left on the Target clearance shelves of...

    FIRST ON FOX – Some southern Target stores were forced by the corporation to move LGBTQ Pride merchandise away from the front of their locations after customer "outrage" to avoid a "Bud Light situation." Many Target locations across the country feature massive June Pride month displays on an annual basis, with items this year ranging from "tuck friendly" bathing suits for transgender people to mugs that say "gender fluid." But the retail juggernaut has been criticized by some conservatives for the displays, with children’s items particularly irking many customers. A Target insider told Fox News Digital that many locations, mostly...

This time, Rollins was arrested for approaching another child and inquiring about his feet, a direct violation of the conditions of his release. The incident has reignited concerns about the safety of children and raised calls for stricter measures against potential predators. The alarming incident occurred in Columbia County, Georgia, just days after Rollins had been granted bond while awaiting trial on charges of child molestation. According to...

    The country's largest advocacy group for LGBTQ+ rights has suspended its equality and inclusion rating for Bud Light over its poor handling of the backlash that followed from a partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney. Last week the Human Rights Campaign told the Bud Light parent company Anheuser-Busch that it had suspended its Corporate Equality Index score - a tool that rates companies' friendliness to LGBTQ employees. The suspension of Anheuser-Busch's CEI score means the company 'no longer has the right to use the 'Best Places to Work' distinction,' HRC's letter says. Before the suspension, Anheuser-Busch had a CEI score...

    On May 9, the Connecticut House of Representatives passed a bill that would effectively expand the definition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to include “discrimination” against so-called “minor-attracted persons.” H.B. 6638, also known as “An Act Revising the State’s Antidiscrimination Statutes,” passed by a landslide margin of 132-17, with two members absent from the vote. A significant majority of the state’s 53 House Republicans voted in favor of the bill. The state’s House Democratic caucus described the bill as seeking to “modernize and improve consistency in” the state’s “discrimination statutes.” The Connecticut American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU),...
